 Dear Mr. Prime Minister:  If the Climate collapses so will our ecosystems, and the economy. There will be massive social chaos on the planet, and there will be no jobs.  Your environmental policies are destroying the crucial natural environment that we need to stabilize the planet and that supports all life... all in the name of profits and "jobs"...It is time for you to wake up to your responsibility...playing to the corporate dollar will be your downfall ... and ours ...For Without Nature We Do Not Exist.....pdjmoo

pdjmoo's curator insight, June 18, 2013 7:34 AM

Common sense tells us that growing biofuels on arable land for fuel can, at the most, only provide us with a small percentage of so-called renewable fuel.   It takes up huge acreage of good land for food; often from deforestation; it is constantly being harvested, not allowing natural biodiversity to re-establish itself; it requires water; pesticides, chemicals, fertilizers; it is energy intensive to process and transport; and it carries nice, hefty subsidies (as does wind) for investment and bottom-line.   But it is not cost-effective when all is taken into account and t is dependent upon the weather and climate change is coming in fast. So let's stop with the public relations spin and tell it like it is.  It is a boondoggle that will fade as the subsidies are withdrawn.

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/

Environmental News Network, September 22, 2014
  CARBON CAPTURE IS A BAD IDEA:  TECHNOLOGY AND CLIMATE ACTION - Some scientists and analysts are touting carbon capture and storage as a necessary tool for avoiding catastrophic climate change. But critics of the technology regard it as simply another way of perpetuating a reliance on fossil fuels. http://www.enn.com/top_stories/article/47863

 

The Register, June 28, 2010

▶  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/

                    300 YEARS OF FOSSIL FUELS IN 300 SECONDS

             WINNER OF YOUTUBE'S BEST NONPROFIT VIDEO AWARD!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJ-J91SwP8w&feature=youtu.be

Fossil fuels have powered human growth and ingenuity for centuries. Now that we're reaching the end of cheap and abundant oil and coal supplies, we're in for an exciting ride. While there's a real risk that we'll fall off a cliff, there's still time to control our transition to a post-carbon future.
A deeper analysis of the crises we face, and possible solutions we can work on right now can be had HERE: http://j.mp/PCReader

THANKS TO THE FRACKING BOOM, WE'RE WASTING MORE MONEY THAN EVER ON FOSSIL FUEL SUBSIDIES... making society bear the brunt of the local pollution and climate change caused by fossil fuel extraction, transport, and burning. the federal government continues to lose lots of money by selling fossil fuel extraction rights on public lands for less than they are worth, as the Government Accountability Office has reported. Here again, more extraction means more lost government revenue. This is true for coal as well as oil and gas. In Wyoming and Montana’s Powder River Basin, where coal mining is booming, Oil Change notes that below-market lease rates are costing the Treasury $1 billion per year. http://grist.org/climate-energy/thanks-to-the-fracking-boom-were-wasting-more-money-than-ever-on-fossil-fuel-subsidies/

2047 : WHERE WILL EARTH HEAD AFTER ITS 'CLIMATE DEPARTURE'? The term “climate departure” has an odd ring, but its meaning is relatively straightforward. It marks the point at which the earth’s climate begins to cease resembling what has come before and moves into a new state, one where heat records are routinely shattered and what once was considered extreme will become the norm. http://e360.yale.edu/feature/interview_camilo_mora_where_will_earth_head_after_its_climate_departure/2783/

Samantha Fuller's curator insight, October 2, 2013 1:03 PM

This videos main point is fossil fuel, but all the things we are using fossil fuels for are growing into climate change problems. The whole world is dependent on fossil fuels. Try to think of one thing that wasn't made using fossil fuels or doesn't use fossil fuels. All these new inventions we have are still running on fossil fuels. The manufactors are adding to much co2 in the air causing tempertures to rise. What we need to do is learn to live without fossil fuels. Changing our energy sourse will change our whole economy.

SOLAR POWER:  CHINA LEADS WORLD TO SOLAR POWER RECORD IN 2013 In the last two years, countries around the world have added almost as much new solar photovoltaics (PV) capacity as had been added since the invention of the solar cell. Nearly 38,000 megawatts of PV came online in 2013, a new annual record. In all, the world’s installed PV generating capacity is now close to 140,000 megawatts—enough to power each home in Germany.

FastCoExist,
THESE SOLAR ROADS COULD POWER THE ENTIRE COUNTRY. The Solar Roadways project, now crowdfunding on Indiegogo, hopes to re-pave the country in custom, glass-covered solar panels that are strong enough to drive on while generating enough power to light the road, melt ice and snow, and send extra energy to cities. Eventually, if every paved surface was covered in the product, the panels would produce more power than the nation uses. http://www.fastcoexist.com/3029874/fund-this/these-solar-roads-could-power-the-entire-country

-▶  CONCERNS MOUNT AS USA PLANS MAJOR NATURAL GAS EXPORTS Washington, DC: Environmentalists and others here are reacting with concern to a surprise announcement on Monday of a major deal that would see U.S. natural gas exported to the United Kingdom, marking the first time that such sales have been permitted...Critics warn that the industry in the U.S. remains too unregulated and that exports will cause a spike in domestic gas prices. In recent months, the debate over exports has become highly divisive. “We cannot guarantee that drilling occurs safely in the United States, because there is neither the science to justify nor do states enforce what regulations do exist,” Alan Septoff, the Washington-based director of communications for Earthworks, an advocacy group, told IPS. “Increasing demand via exports for a dirty, dangerous process is not something we think is a good idea.” http://www.ipsnews.net/2013/03/concerns-mount-as-u-s-plans-major-natural-gas-exports/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter

Targeting pollution could save millions of lives

Targeting pollution could save millions of lives | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it

Limiting how much soot and methane reaches the atmosphere using existing technologies could save nearly five million lives every year, and vastly boost global crop yields, scientists report.

Controlling atmospheric levels of these pollutants could also slow global warming by around half a degree by 2050.

AFRICA: At the Nexus of Agrofuels, Land Grabs and Hunger – Part 2 | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it

The forests in Africa absorb over 1.2 billion tonnes of carbon annually. With these diverse and natural forests, grasslands and prairie lands disappearing under investment schemes and the development of monoculture plantations for supposed "green" energy alternatives like agrofuels, not much else remains to absorb the shocks of hunger and climate change.
