Pricing Carbon, Carbon Storage, Offsets: Failed Strategies That Won't Save The Climate or Planet

▶ PRICING CARBON A FAILED STRATEGY THAT WON'T SAVE THE CLIMATE . "We cannot deal with climate change through crisis-prone markets that subsidise dirty energy firms.....carbon pricing – the notion that we can best reduce pollution by extending private property rights to pollution – had a fatal flaw at its core. Prices can never reflect true ecological values because those values simply cannot be expressed in dollar terms....http://climateandcapitalism.com/2013/06/23/pricing-carbon-a-failed-strategy-that-wont-save-the-climate/

▶  CARBON STORAGE, SEQUESTRATION ' AS BAD AS NUCLEAR WASTE'
A Danish climate geophysicist scientist, Prof. Gary Shaffer, has published a paper criticising carbon sequestration - the idea of dealing with CO2 emissions by stuffing the greenhouse gas away into underground or deep-sea storage where it (supposedly) can't affect the atmosphere.
The more commonly advocated plan of pumping CO2 into disused oil or gas fields doesn't meet with Shaffer's approval either. He points out that these subterranean/subsea reservoirs are scarcely leak-proof.... http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/06/28/sequestration_no_no_shaffer/

One of our biggest potential climate allies is directly under our feet: soil. Healthy, living soil has an enormous capacity to store carbon. In fact, carbon stored in soil accounts for roughly three times the amount stored in the atmosphere! Improving the health of degraded soil holds tremendous potential to mitigate climate change http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KamMRhlu9dA

     ▶SMOKE OVER SUMATRA: WHY INDONESIA'S FIRES ARE A GLOBAL CONCERN.  Scientists estimate that during the Indonesian fires of 1997, between 0.81-2.67 gigatons of carbon were released into Earth’s atmosphere (Page et al 2002). This is comparable to 13-40% of the fossil fuels emitted globally that same year, catapulting Indonesia to be ranked the world’s third highest emitter of greenhouse gases (after China and the USA) according to some indices ... http://news.mongabay.com/2013/0626-op-ed-miles-fisher.html

pdjmoo's insight:

We need to begin addressing "climate change" in a more wholistic manner beyond the focus on fossil fuels, methane emissions (fracking) etc. and begin connecting the dot to the  "causes" such as the weakened immune system of the planet and the dangerous imbalances in our natural biosphere and biodiversity: depleted oceans; poisoned soils and waterways; deforestation; and massive loss of ecosystems and species to name a few. And then there are the powerful political lobbies such as Big Corporate Agriculture, the Pesticide/Chemical pestilence and industrial production of our food through factory farms and the waste and pharmaceutical drugs they use that enter our rivers and drinking water. We are right on a precipice and what we do now will impact us for centuries to come. We must think things through to their ultimate conclusion with a baseline question: "Will this harm the environment or human health?" If so, back to the drawing board. This will take both courage and conviction. Will our politicians and corporations understand that sooner, rather than later, we must address the restoration of our planet to health as the ongoing rape and pillage of our natural resources will ultimately lead to end of life on this planet.  And in the final analysis we cannot eat money or drink oil.
