Three pieces of research published this week reveal the increasing climate emergency we live in, and reiterate the recklessness of the decision by Trudeau to invest billions in Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline.
2018 Starts with “record lows in Arctic sea ice extent”
As the Arctic melts due to climate change, which is being driven by our fossil fuel addiction, the fossil fuel industry is now exploiting the increasingly ice-free region.
Yes, We are in a Fight, But We Will Win
Make no mistake. For those of us working on environmental issues, for social justice, to protect our children, our health, our water, our communities who are on the frontline of fossil fuel extraction, we are in a fight like never before.
Let’s Name the Antarctic Larsen C Iceberg #ExxonKnew
“Exxon’s climate denial created this iceberg. It should be named after it too”.
Meet Donald the Climate Clown
Later today in Stockholm, a conference organised by the business group, the International Chamber of Commerce, examines “Bridging the Climate Change Policy Gap.”
New climate research predicts “disaster for many low-lying cities”
It is no longer a question of “if” the unthinkable happens, but a question of “when”. And the “when” could happen sooner than you think. For decades now climate scientists have been worried about what happens if the vast West Antarctic ice sheet melts.
A Message from the Warmists…
As a writer what I find interesting is the corruption of the language and the evidence by the sceptics. Yesterday I posted a blog that was based on Rolling Stone’s list of the people they believe are doing to the most to undermine the international and US domestic effort on climate change. Obviously the post … Read More
10% of Population Will be Affected by Sea-Level Rise
Only a week to go and the climate sceptics seem to be popping up everywhere, trying to undermine the Copenhagen conference. But what they can’t stop is the damning new credible scientific evidence that is being produced. One such study is from the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR). The SCAR study was undertaken by … Read More
A Message from Antarctica
As the politicians pontificate about climate change and the crucial Bonn negotiations come to a close on Wednesday, nature has sent its very own stark message to the conference. An ice bridge that held the vast Wilkins Ice Shelf in place shattered at the weekend. Its collapse could herald a larger break-up of the Ice … Read More
Climate Change is “Irreversible”
A US government-sponsored report has warned that many effects of climate change are already irreversible. Even if carbon emissions were somehow stopped now, global temperatures could remain high for 1,000 years, concluded the scientists. The report, sponsored by the US Department of Energy, appears in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
