Richard Heinberg: The economy is all about energy. Almost all of our environmental issues relate to energy in one way or another. Certainly, climate change does. War and peace, it's all about energy. Upping the energy literacy of the American people and thought leaders is a pretty high priority.

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.

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.

-▶ INDIA PM, NARENDRA MODI, CALLS FOR A "PARADIGM SHIFT" IN GLOBAL ATTITUDE TOWARDS CLIMATE CHANGE, URGES NATIONS OF HIGH SOLAR POWER POTENTIAL TO JOIN HANDS. This would help poorer nations to provide low-cost clean energy to their citizens without being arm-twisted by the developed world who have been closely guarding their patented cutting-edge technology. The change of attitude which India pitched for seeks a shift from "carbon credit" through emission cuts (mitigation) to "green credit" through adopting energy efficient measures and investment in renewable sector (solar, wind and biomass) in a big way. http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/environment/pollution/narendra-modi-calls-for-a-shift-in-global-attitude-to-meet-climate-goals/articleshow/45948075.cms

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/

-▶ OPEC MINISTERS OPT FOR STATUS QUO AS OIL PRICES SLIDE.  “It is increasingly clear that we have begun a new chapter in the history of the oil markets,” the IEA concluded. “Economic development no longer spurs oil demand growth as it once did.”

                                                CHECK MATE

The UAE’s Minister of Energy, Suhail Al Mazrouei, echoed other ministers in saying that it was not Opec producers who were primarily responsible for the world’s oil glut, referring particularly to surging North American production....Meanwhile, oil production from North America — especially from unconventional sources, including so-called shale oil — has surged over the last few years, helped by relatively high oil prices. That has pushed the need for imported oil by the US to its lowest level in more than four decades and meant tougher competition for oil producers to find buyers... http://www.thenational.ae/business/energy/opec-ministers-opt-for-status-quo-as-oil-prices-slide

NO FRACKING WAY : HOW THE EU-US TRADE AGREEMENT RISKS EXPANDING FRACKING. A major trade deal currently being negotiated between the European Union (EU) and the United States (US) threatens the power of governments to protect communities, citizens and the environment from risky new technologies such as fracking. The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) covers a huge range of issues and sectors, including food safety, genetically modified products, toxic chemicals, highly polluting fuels and data protection. The talks threaten to weaken or roll-back democratically agreed safeguards put in place to protect the environment and citizens – for the sake of corporate profits. http://www.tni.org/briefing/no-fracking-way?context=596

Mikko Salo's curator insight, December 1, 2014 1:13 PM

Öljyn hinta on laskenut kesästä lähtien, ja on nyt alimmalla tasollaan neljään vuoteen. Tämä johtuu pääasiassa teollisuusmaiden vähentyneestä öljyn kysynnästä, erityisesti Yhdysvalloissa tarve tuoda maahan öljyä on pienimmillään moneen vuosikymmeneen.

   Nyt öljyntuottajamaiden OPEC-järjestö päättivät pitää öljyn tuotannon ja hinnan ennallaan ja antaa markkinavoimien tehdä tehtävänsä. He uskovat, että aleneva hinta tulee elvyttämään kysyntää markkinatalouden lakien mukaan, ja tällöin hinta voi taas nousta.

But the bigger challenge – now and in the coming years – is understanding what is happening below. The retreat of Arctic sea ice could have significant implications for ocean circulation, atmospheric circulation and even weather patterns in the continental U.S. and other populated areas. http://www.nasa.gov/content/goddard/nasa-perspective-four-decades-of-sea-ice-from-space-the-future/

The Arctic, a large portion of which is controlled or claimed by Russia, is a new carbon El Dorado, holding up to a quarter of the globe’s undiscovered oil and gas reserves. According to one energy industry insider: "Climate change is opening up one of the last frontiers for hydrocarbons on our planet. The Arctic … could be set for rapid change and development as exploration, production and infrastructure will have an inevitable, irreversible impact." http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2013/sep/24/why-geoengineering-suits-russias-carbon-agenda

Jose's curator insight, March 20, 2014 12:22 PM

When reading this article i find it amazing what is going on around the world. Places like Antarctica are changing dramatically in ways people are not in control of. What used to be an icy and colder places is now deteriorating and melting. I find it scary in a way because what else is going to change as the years go by. What are the next generation of people going to be apart of or get to witnesses now that many places and things are coming closer to be extinct.

LIVING IN THE ANTHROPOCENE: TOWARD A NEW GLOBAL ETHOS

-▶ A decade ago, Nobel Prize-winning scientist Paul Crutzen first suggested we were living in the “Anthropocene,” a new geological epoch in which humans had altered the planet. Now, in an article for Yale Environment 360, Crutzen and a coauthor explain why adopting this term could help transform the perception of our role as stewards of the Earth.... http://e360.yale.edu/feature/living_in_the_anthropocene_toward_a_new_global_ethos_/2363/

HAVE HUMANS CAUSED A NEW GEOLOGICAL ERA? DEMARKING THE ANTHROPOCENE. Humans drive trillions of miles in cars, clear-cut forests for agriculture and create vast landfills teeming with tin cans, soda bottles and other detritus of industrialization. There's no doubt that humans have radically reshaped the planet, and those changes leave traces in the Earth's geological record... http://news.discovery.com/earth/have-humans-caused-a-new-geological-era-121207.htmlhttp://news.discovery.com/earth/have-humans-caused-a-new-geological-era-121207.html

                       Interview With Elizabeth Kolbert, Author

▶  IN THE WORLD'S "SIXTH EXTINCTION": ARE HUMANS THE ASTEROID? Elizabeth Kolbert is the author of the new book The Sixth Extinction. It begins with a history of the "big five" extinctions of the past, and goes on to explain how human behavior is creating this sixth one — including our use of fossil fuels and the effects of climate change.

"We are effectively undoing the beauty and the variety and the richness of the world which has taken tens of millions of years to reach," Kolbert tells Fresh Air's Terry Gross. "... We're sort of unraveling that. ... We're doing, it's often said, a massive experiment on the planet and we really don't know what the end point is going to be." http://www.npr.org/2014/02/12/275885377/in-the-worlds-sixth-extinction-are-humans-the-asteroid

THE ANTHROPOCENE: OUR PLANET'S THRESHOLDS AND BOUNDARIES. As scientists learn more about how our planet works, both now and in the past, they are increasingly aware of the existence of environmental ‘tipping points’ – points of no return. These are thresholds beyond which environmental change becomes hard to stop....http://www.anthropocene.info/en/thresholds-boundaries

 

THE ANTROPOCENE: THE EARTH SYSTEM

We aren’t an outside force disturbing the natural order of things – we’re an integral part of the Earth system ourselves.

                               ClimateProgress, December 27, 2013

America produced an average of 7.5 million barrels of crude oil per day in 2013, an increase of one million barrels per day and the biggest one-year jump in the nation’s history, FuelFix reported Thursday. The U.S. Energy Information Association (EIA) estimates production will grow by another one million barrels in 2014 and will peak at a whopping 9.5 million barrels per day in 2016.

And the production surge doesn’t stop at the water’s edge. According to FuelFix, “the Gulf of Mexico also is seeing a boost, with oil production expected to grow to 1.4 million barrels per day in 2014, up by 100,000 barrels.”... http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2013/12/27/3105211/obama-administration-oil-production/#

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/

Fracking into underground drinking water sources is not prohibited by the 2005 Energy Policy Act, which exempted the practice from key provisions of the Safe Drinking Water Act. Oil companies get a free ride at expense of both environmental and human health with little or no oversight or regulation. Damage May Be Irreversible

There are more than 680,000 underground waste and injection wells nationwide..."In 10 to 100 years we are going to find out that most of our groundwater is polluted...A lot of people are going to get sick, and a lot of people may die." ...Over the past several decades, The boom in oil and natural gas drilling has injected more than 30 trillion gallons of toxic liquid deep into the earth, using broad expanses of the nation's geology as an invisible dumping ground.

No company would be allowed to pour such dangerous chemicals into the rivers or onto the soil. But until recently, scientists and environmental officials have assumed that deep layers of rock beneath the earth would safely entomb the waste for millennia. There are growing signs they were mistaken. http://www.propublica.org/article/injection-wells-the-poison-beneath-us

                HOW FRACKING CAN MAKE WATER FLAMMABLE
One of the most outrageous and unbelievable effects of fracking in some areas is the phenomenon of tap water becoming flammable, straight from the tap, due to methane and other gasses leaching into ground wells and water supplies. Watching a faucet set on fire and hearing the stories of the people involved is not something that can be too readily dismissed, and here are a 5 examples of this:

ARE WOMEN OUR BEST HOPE FOR FIGHTING CLIMATE CHANGE? 

The need for women’s voices to be heard becomes most vividly apparent when considering the fact that indigenous women are struggling to protect and retain control of the very natural resources that they depend on — which are directly threatened by climate change.

“We are seeing a sort of ecological violence that highly affects indigenous women,” Lopez tells me. “The damage that corporations are inflicting on natural resources have an impact on the life of indigenous women — a very, very direct impact. We see a lot of sexual and reproductive health problems specific to indigenous women — and not men — that are linked to pesticides, toxins, contamination of water. If environmental rights are not guaranteed, the human rights of indigenous women are not going to be guaranteed, either.”  http://www.globalpossibilities.org/are-women-our-best-hope-for-fighting-climate-change/

BUILDING UNITY AND SOLIDARITY TO EFFECT A SYSTEM CHANGE. Women from all the corners of the Southern African region descended on Bulawayo to participate in a parallel of the SADC Heads of State Summit, the People Summit. They have converged to share their experiences on how they have been affected either by decisions made by governments with little consultations with the people or the inherited colonial agro-mining complex, which continues to grab land for extractive purposes. More importantly, the women have gathered to build and strengthen their solidarity, forge strong alliances and commit to the struggle to push for a system of changehttp://viacampesina.org/en/index.php/news-from-the-regions-mainmenu-29/1649-sadc-building-unity-and-solidarity-to-effect-a-system-change

-▶ BANGLADESH TO BECOME WORLD'S 1ST NATION 100% POWERED BY SOLAR: PANELS ON EVERY HOUSE. In 2011, one million Bangladeshi homes were powered by solar power.  Today, there are over 15 million homes (and counting) that are powered by solar power.  Every month, the Bangladesh governments adds solar panels to 50,000-60,000 homes through their Solar Home System (SHS) government program.  The idea, is that the entire country will be operating on solar power by 2021. This is a huge feat and an example of what people can do when they coordinate.  Bangladesh is the 8th most populous country in the world, with over 160 million citizens. https://www.minds.com/blog/view/414130823768313856/bangladesh-to-become-world039s-1st-nation-100-powered-by-solar-panels-on-every-house

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. Falling costs and effective policies continue to drive tremendous growth in solar power. http://www.earth-policy.org/indicators/C47/solar_power_2014

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

June 23, 2013 Climate Capitalism - Simon Butler:

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

▶  ADDICTED TO PROFIT: CARBON CAPTURE STORAGE COULD CREATE £35bn UK MARKET BY 2030 -

“The dangers of carbon sequestration are real. We should greatly limit CO2 emissions in our time to reduce the need for massive carbon sequestration and thus reduce unwanted consequences and burdens over many future generations from the leakage of sequestered CO2.”

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/

Summit County Citizens Voice, January 30, 2015
FIVE YEARS ON: STUDY FINDS MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF OIL FROM DEEPWATER HORIZON DISASTER BURIED IN GULF OF MEXICO. Five years after BP’s failed Deepwater Horizon drill rig spewed 200 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, a significant amount of that oil remains buried in seafloor sediments. A new study by a Florida State University researcher estimates that about 6 to 10 million gallons of oil are still there, perhaps decomposing slowly, but probably affecting Gulf ecosystems. “This is going to affect the Gulf for years to come,” said researcher Jeff Chanton. “Fish will likely ingest contaminants because worms ingest the sediment, and fish eat the worms. It’s a conduit for contamination into the food web,” he said sediments http://summitcountyvoice.com/2015/01/30/study-finds-massive-amounts-of-oil-from-deepwater-horizon-disaster-buried-in-gulf-of-mexico-sediments/

Samantha Groen's curator insight, February 4, 11:43 AM

BP was banned from preforming any work in the US in 2012 and now the suspension has been lifted. They are back in the oil game. They had to pay a $4.5 billion fine, admit to lying about the damages, plead guilty, and now they are back in business. Their incident caused the death of 11 workers and the destruction of the Gulf of Mexico. Their attempts to make it better were pathetic. It is interesting how people can put a dollar value to the damage and death of people and a huge mass of water and fish population.

 

This was a huge example of poor corporate social responsibility and the damages are still taking its toll. Reading about the research on how the fish and sea creatures are still being affected 5 years later. The response that the BP representatives are giving in respect to the research on how the fish's hearts are being affected just shows that they are still not practicing good corporate social responsibility and it is sad to see how little a company will take care for their mistakes and the world they live in.

 ▶   KRILL SUPER TRAWLERS PUSHING PENGUINS TOWARD EXTINCTION... Penguins are threatened with extinction by climate change and giant fishing trawlers from Europe and Asia stalking the oceans around Antarctica. Penguins are a protected species, but the factory-sized trawlers are vacuuming up the tiny shrimp-like krill that are their main food source. The Southern Ocean is also becoming increasingly acidic from emissions of fossil fuels and will have a significant impact on krill populations. And yet efforts to create two marine protected areas in the Southern Ocean have been blocked by China, Russia and Norway.... http://www.ipsnews.net/2013/04/krill-super-trawlers-pushing-penguins-toward-extinction/

Across the world, there are many ways to encourage recycling. Tax breaks, virtual points, deposit payments--there's no shortage of ideas. Recently, we even came across a machine in Istanbul that gives out dog food in return for a bottle or two. Beijing is now taking its own approach by giving free train rides and mobile phone top-ups to people redeeming used plastic. Machines in 34 locations take bottle deposits and calculate their worth, issuing a credit to the person's mobile account or transit pass. Sensors scan the bottle's weight and composition, then prompt users to choose their option. http://www.fastcoexist.com/3034720/in-beijing-you-can-pay-for-train-rides-with-plastic-bottles

Beijing's notorious air pollution has reached beyond hazardous levels in recent years, with the city covered in thick, toxic smog for a good part of the year. While the Chinese government has implemented various pollution-battling policies like car bans and the planting of green roofs, others like London-based design firm Orproject have gone down the road of more extreme design measures -- suggesting the building of bubble-like biomes, sealed from outside pollution, that would allow residents to actually breathe clean air. http://www.treehugger.com/urban-design/beijing-bubbles-biome-clean-air-orproject.html

While some details of the fourth draft are still under discussion, it has been agreed that the principle of prioritising the environment above the economy will be enshrined in law, according to scholars who have been involved in the process. The fourth draft is due to be completed within weeks.

"(Upholding) environmental protection as the fundamental principle is a huge change, and emphasises that the environment is a priority," said Cao Mingde, a law professor at the China University of Political Science and Law, who was involved in the drafting process.

METHANE IS ABOUT 20 TIMES MORE POTENT IN WARMING THE EARTH'S ATMOSPHERE THAN CARBON DIOXIDE. FRACKING FOR NATURAL GAS RELEASES METHANE



Independent, July 08, 2014

VAST METHANE 'PLUMES' SEEN IN ARCTIC OCEAN AS SEA ICE RETREATS. Dramatic and unprecedented plumes of methane -

A GREENHOUSE GAS 20 TIMES MORE POTENT THAN CARBON DIOXIDE  - have been seen bubbling to the surface of the Arctic Ocean by scientists undertaking an extensive survey of the region.... it’s strongly reminiscent of what is probably the worst possible climate scenario imaginable, a feedback loop so humongous and destructive that it would lead to runaway warming that makes today's runaway warming look tame by comparison. The last time this happened, it poisoned 90 percent of all life on earth with hydrogen sulfide gas, in a process described by paleontologist Peter Ward as "life killing itself off."... http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/vast-methane-plumes-seen-in-arctic-ocean-as-sea-ice-retreats-6276278.html

TOXIC TRAIL:  HOW A LANDMARK SUPERFUND CLEANUP PROGRAM LEAVES ITS OWN TOXIC LEGACY.

Below some of the world’s most expensive real estate, in the heart of Silicon Valley, pipes and pumps suck thousands of gallons of contaminated water every hour from vast underground toxic pools.

Giant industrial filters trap droplets of dangerous chemicals at the surface, all in the hope of making the water drinkable again and protecting the workers of tech giants such as Google and Symantec from toxic vapors. Often the original mess is almost untreatable. In Silicon Valley’s case, it would take 700 years of continuous treatment to make the groundwater drinkable. http://www.theguardian.com/environment/ng-interactive/2014/mar/-sp-toxic-waste-silicon-valley-trail

HOW RIGGED IS THE FOSSIL FUEL MARKET? IN A WORD, "OVERWHELMING".  AN UNHOLY ALLIANCE -- THE TRUE COST OF FOSSIL FUELS. Fossil fuel company executives and D.C. politicians have long worked together to ensure coal and oil prices stay low enough to keep Americans hooked. Here's how we can break the addiction.... Industry gets tax breaks, subsidies, military support in volatile regions, the right to use our air and water like a sewer, and assurance that the government will clean up its environmental messes. Politicians get campaign contributions, a steady flow of dirty energy, and a talking point to brandish about how they kept gas affordable...http://www.treehugger.com/energy-policy/true-cost-fossil-fuels.html?campaign=daily_nl

SOVEREIGN DEBTS IN A FOSSIL-FUELED WORLD. Advanced economies – steeped in debt, with infrastructure and tax policies built around fossil fuels – resist innovation on new fuels or efforts to stem climate change and pollution. Hickey suggests that “Most world governments are so compromised with the fossil-fuel industry they cannot easily walk away without leaving their financial coffers worse off as the true costs of energy are hidden in a producer and consumer subsidy labyrinth that promotes the addiction.” Eliminating subsidies for the fossil-fuel industry, highlighting the true costs, would speed up the development of alternative energies. – YaleGlobal  http://yaleglobal.yale.edu/content/sovereign-debts-fossil-fueled-world
