Climate Change, Water Shortages, Biodiversity Loss, will have Growing Impacts on Global Business | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it

Nairobi, 21 June 2013 - UN Report UNEP

The future of the private sector will increasingly hinge on the ability of businesses to adapt to the world's rapidly changing environment and to develop goods and services that can reduce the impacts of climate change, water scarcity, emissions of harmful chemicals, and other environmental concerns. -

"From extreme weather events, to rising pressures on finite natural resources, changes in the global environment will increasingly impact operating costs, markets for products, the availability of raw materials, and the reputation of businesses, from finance and tourism, to healthcare and transport."

David Collet's curator insight, June 23, 2013 11:31 PM

Best 5 minutes you could spend this week.

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.

                                  Climate Progress, April 7, 2014

                                                  Climate Series

                                "YEARS OF LIVING DANGEROUSLY"

               Premieres Sunday on Showtime, April 13 at 10PM EDT/PDT.

Showtime has posted online the entire video of Episode 1, airing April 12, 2014 of its visually and emotionally gripping documentary series event, “Years of Living Dangerously,” produced by James Cameron, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jerry Weintraub — and former 60 Minutes producers. Watch it here.

http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2014/04/07/3423139/episode-1-showtime-years-of-living-dangerously/

 

This is not just going to be a landmark climate change series, it is going to be a landmark television series. It is what everyone is going to be talking about from April to June. As the latest international climate report makes clear, climate change is happening right here, right now — in America and around the world. It is the biggest story of our time, and it needs a big platform to tell it.

▶ 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

   A subterranean world of previously ignored reserves is about to be opened up. These are the vast coal deposits that have proved unreachable by conventional mining, along with gas deposits around them. To the horror of anyone concerned about climate change, modern miners want to set fire to these deep coal seams and capture the gases this creates for industry and power generation. Some say this will provide energy security for generations to come. Others warn that it is a whole new way to fry the planet.

                         180 SECONDS OF COAL ASH PROBLEMS

Every year power plants generate 140 million tons of coal ash, enough to fill a train stretching from the North Pole to the South Pole.

Coal ash (a byproduct) contains chemicals like arsenic, mercury and lead. It can cause cancer and developmental problems. It poisons fish and wildlife in rivers and lakes.

In some places the ash is dumped into uncovered pits. In others it sits behind leaky dams. It poisons the air. It destroys the water. And the corporate polluters responsible, they claim that cleaning up this toxic mess would hurt their profits https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bg_zttjzpL0

-▶ GLOBAL WARMING:  MAJOR NEW REPORT WARNS OF 'ARCTIC SQUEEZE'. An entire bio-climatic zone, the high Arctic, may disappear.
FRISCO — Rapid climate change in the Arctic is putting enormous pressure on ecosystems, threatening biodiversity and the fundamental way of life of indigenous Arctic peoples, scientists said in a major new report.
“An entire bio-climatic zone, the high Arctic, may disappear. Polar bears and the other highly adapted organisms cannot move further north, so they may go extinct. We risk losing several species forever,” said Hans Meltofte of Aarhus University, chief scientist of the report.

 -▶ BUILDING A BUBBLE-like BIOME IN BEIJING COULD LET RESIDENTS BREATHE CLEAN AIR. 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

Furthermore, nearly a quarter of all man-made emissions in the country, come from three states alone - Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas.

Researchers from the Carnegie Institution, Harvard and Duke, and a group from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, found average emissions in the United States may be 1.5 times higher than previous estimates, and may be as high as 2.7 times greater in the south-central part of the country. http://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2013/11/26/government-underestimates-methane-emissions-by-50-percent

Despite the oil boom already well underway, the Associated Press reported this week that the Obama administration was seeking to ‘clean up’ coal by capturing carbon dioxide from coal-fired power plants and using it to force more oil out of the ground.
“Obama has spent more than $1 billion on carbon-capture projects tied to oil fields and has pledged billions more for clean coal,” according to the AP report... http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2013/12/27/3105211/obama-administration-oil-production/#

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/#

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/

                            NPR FreshAir, February 12, 2014
                       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

World can’t wait until 2020 on climate change, says new, highly-disturbing International Energy Agency report

World can’t wait until 2020 on climate change, says new, highly-disturbing International Energy Agency report | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it

June 17, 2013 Hill Times Online

-▶  ... a new and highly-disturbing report from the International Energy Agency warns that “the world is not on track to limit the long-term rise in the average global temperature to two degrees Celsius,” and that, based on the present course, the long-term average temperature increase is likely to be somewhere between 3.6 degrees Celsius and 5.3 degrees. Such an increase would bring highly disruptive change that would not only be hugely costly but deeply threatening to human society.

Scientific evidence shows that “our climate is already changing and that we should expect extreme weather events (such as storms, floods, and heat waves) to become more frequent and intense, as well as increasing global temperatures and rising sea levels,” the IEA warns.... http://www.hilltimes.com/opinion-piece/2013/06/17/world-can%E2%80%99t-wait-until-2020-on-climate-change-says-new-highly-disturbing/35071

ClimateProgress, December 27, 2013
  -▶  IN THE MIDST OF RECORD OIL BOOM, OBAMA ADMINISTRATION SEEKS MORE OIL PRODUCTION.

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/#

pdjmoo's insight:

Amazingly, so little mention of environmental degradation.  This is the central core for all discussion for, without our natural world we do not exist.  The degradation of our ecosystems, biodiversity and poisoning of our planet is the absolute focus for all discussions.   Much of the rape and pillage going on is irreversible and the massive imbalance of the planet  tells us that there WILL BE a horrendous planetary biological chain-reaction and unforeseen repercussions, no matter what we do. Unbridled consumption is driving us to destruction.  The era of the industrial, military paternal mindset is over.  It has led us to the brink of destruction.  Women, indigeneous and youth are rising and their voices must be heard. An entirely new systems paradigm is required to restore and bring our Planet back to health.  If we were to focus on restoring our environment to health, a new template for economics would automatically form and a new job force would emerge.

The bats are killed when they fly into the towering turbines which spin at up to 179 mph with blades that can stretch 130 feet. Previous estimates of bat deaths ranged from 33,000 to 880,000. http://summitcountyvoice.com/2013/11/16/new-study-ups-estimate-of-wind-turbine-bat-deaths/

Australian Honeybee Hives Are Melting As Temperatures Soar: Tens of Thousands of Flying Foxes Fall From The Sky

Australian Honeybee Hives Are Melting As Temperatures Soar: Tens of Thousands of Flying Foxes Fall From The Sky | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it

The World Post, January 26, 2014

▶  AUSTRALIAN HONEY BEES UNABLE TO MAKE HONEY : THEIR HIVES ARE MELTING AS TEMPERATURES SOAR.

    Australia's hottest spring on record has spawn droughts and intense heatwaves; it has been disastrous for honeybees as their hives are melting whilst temperatures soar.

    Plants have responded to the stifling heatwaves this summer (2014) across the Australian continent by substantially lowering nectar production. Bees require nectar to make honey -- their only food source.

Aussie honeybees are also contending with another crisis this summer as climate disruption has their colonies operating in an emergency mode. Bees store their honey in honeycomb cells made of beeswax, which is now melting because daytime temperatures regularly exceed 95 degrees F.

    It would be prudent for Australian's to scrutinize all processed foods labels, foreign honey will be used when the following wording appears: "Made in Australia from local honey and imported ingredients."

There's a lot more at stake here than just processed foods.

    Australia's commercial bees are vividly showing scientists the knock-on effect from climate disruption. The occurrence and frequency of heatwaves and droughts are predicted to double, globally; therefore we can expect more bees unable to make honey, and pollinate plants including most of our food crops. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dr-reese-halter/australian-honeybees-unable-to-make-honey_b_4670475.html

....."""""""""""""""""........

 

[  .... ]

 

.............. 

China is the world's biggest honey producer and it will supply Australia with honey. China, however, uses many banned chemicals and faux honey syrups so Australian Customs and Border Protection Service will be faced with additional costs of thoroughly examining and testing thousands of tons of imported honey. India and Malaysia are other honey exporting nations vying to supply Australia. This much we know about climate disruption: The price of Australian food is set to rise, again.

It would be prudent for Australian's to scrutinize all processed foods labels, foreign honey will be used when the following wording appears: "Made in Australia from local honey and imported ingredients."

There's a lot more at stake here than just processed foods. Australia's commercial bees are vividly showing scientists the knock-on effect from climate disruption. The occurrence and frequency of heatwaves and droughts are predicted to double, globally; therefore we can expect more bees unable to make honey, and pollinate plants including most of our food crops.

▶ 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

               ----- WITHOUT NATURE WE HUMANS DO NOT EXIST ---

 

BEIJING, April 15, 2014 (Reuters) - Smog-hit China is set to pass a new law that would give Beijing more powers to shut polluting factories and punish officials, and even place protected regions off-limits to industrial development.

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. ... http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/04/15/china-expected-to-elevate-environment_n_5150010.html

Stephane Bilodeau's curator insight, April 18, 4:33 PM

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.

▶  CLIMATE CHANGE, CORAL REEFS, DEFORESTATION AND DENGUE.

The 21st century will present gloomy challenges for Costa Rica and the rest of Latin America, such as the collapse of wildlife habitats, animal extinction, water scarcity and the spread of disease in an already vulnerable population.

The United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) laid out this forecast on March 31, as one of its region-by-region follow-ups to the September global assessment on climate change. The reports collect over 12,000 peer-reviewed scientific papers looking at climate’s future impact on environments and society, with the intention of preparing regional leaders to adapt.

THICH NHAT HANH:  ONLY LOVE CAN SAVE US FROM CLIMATE CHANGE

Leading spiritual teacher Thay suggests that our search for fame, wealth, power and sexual gratification provides the perfect refuge for people to hide from the truth about the many challenges facing the world. Worse still, our addiction to material goods and a hectic lifestyle provides only a temporary plaster for gaping emotional and spiritual wounds, which only drives greater loneliness and unhappiness..... http://www.guardian.co.uk/sustainable-business/zen-master-thich-nhat-hanh-love-climate-change

Two weeks ago, charity: water founder Scott Harrison hiked nine hours into a remote village in northern Ethiopia. He spent five nights living with the community, hoping to learn more about a girl whose story he'd heard over a year ago.
   What follows isn't a typical charity: water story. There are no pictures of smiling children or clean water, and there's no happy ending yet. However, we believe it should be told as it illustrates the urgency of our work and the reality of the water crisis. https://medium.com/thoughts-from-the-third-sector/979160375b4a

▶  2012 BROUGHT EXTREME HEAT AND DROUGHT.  BUT THAT'S NOTHING TO WHAT'S AROUND THE CORNER

    2012 was the hottest year on record in the United States. Widespread drought, wildfires and extreme heat affected human health and caused food prices to skyrocket. According to new research out of Columbia University, however, last year’s heat wave may be nothing compared to what’s just around the corner.

    Researchers at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory predict that a megadrought, the likes of which haven’t been experienced since the 12th century, could hit planet Earth within the next eight years, and it might never leave [PDF]. The cause? According to scientists, this drought will be brought on by “anthropogenic radiative forcing”, also known as ‘stronger-than-normal greenhouse warming caused by climate pollution’.

For the First Time in Human History We are Witnessing an Unprecedented Change to our Environment and Planet. Ice is far more sensitive to temperature changes than we thought and ice is melting twice as fast as a decade ago.

 Program Description

▶  AN ALARMING INSIGHT INTO OUR MELTING ICE GLACIERS AND WHAT THIS MEANS FOR OUR PLANET AND YOU

Follow photojournalist James Balog to some of the most remote and beautiful places on Earth as he documents the disappearance of an icy landscape that took thousands of years to form. Remarkable time-lapse footage reveals massive glaciers and ice sheets splitting apart, collapsing, and disappearing at a rate that has scientists alarmed. This NOVA-National Geographic Television special investigates the latest evidence of a radically warming planet.

     Recent findings are that glaciers in Greenland and Antarctica are melting at an ever-faster rate. What explains this alarming acceleration, and just how do you figure out what's happening inside a gigantic wall of ice? In this high-action scientific adventure, Nova investigates the mystery of the mighty ice sheets that will affect the fate of coastlines around the world.

▶ 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/

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.

Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh: Only Love For Mother Earth Can Save Us From Climate Change | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it

Jan 21, 2013 Guardian Sustainable Business

▶ ONLY LOVE FOR MOTHER EARTH CAN SAVE US FROM CLIMATE CHANGE

Leading spiritual teacher warns that if people cannot save themselves from their own suffering, how can they be expected to worry about the plight of Mother Earth. "By recognising the inter-connectedness of all life, we can move beyond the idea that we are separate selves and expand our compassion and love in such a way that we take action to protect the Earth."

 Thay suggests that our search for fame, wealth, power and sexual gratification provides the perfect refuge for people to hide from the truth about the many challenges facing the world. Worse still, our addiction to material goods and a hectic lifestyle provides only a temporary plaster for gaping emotional and spiritual wounds, which only drives greater loneliness and unhappiness..... http://www.guardian.co.uk/sustainable-business/zen-master-thich-nhat-hanh-love-climate-change

Large farms now dominate crop production in the United States. Although most cropland was operated by farms with less than 600 crop acres in the early 1980s, today most cropland is on farms with at least 1,100 acres, and many farms are 5 and 10 times that size. Meanwhile, in 1987, the average dairy herd size was 80 cows; by 2007, it was 570 cows, In 2012 5,000.  The change in hogs was even more striking, from 1,200 hogs removed in a year to 30,000... http://postgrowth.org/unlimited-competition-is-not-sustainable/

AGROECOLOGY: FARMING AND KNOWLEDGE MONOCULTURES ARE MISCONCEIVED

Food needs can be met with a new vision for agriculture and science
In mainstream policy and corporate thinking, scientific knowledge and global markets are considered key for food security. This has resulted in the industrialisation and laboratory research-led intensification of agricultural systems, inputs and food-supply chains.
But intensified systems do not meet global food needs — they mostly suit export markets and corporate interests.... an industrial monoculture model of production — of both food and knowledge — avoids its ecological and social costs, while suppressing more effective sustainable alternatives, and underexploits science's potential versatility.... http://www.scidev.net/global/agriculture/opinion/farming-and-knowledge-monocultures-are-misconceived.html

WHY KANSAS IS RUNNING OUT OF WATER.
The Ogallal Aquifer is one of the largest aquifers in the world, running beneath parts of eight states in the central US. And it is this giant, ancient aquifer that is being sucked dry faster than rain can keep up. Put another way, we've nearly used up a million-year-old source of water in the 100 or so years we've been tapping into it for irrigation.

lloyd stanley gordon's curator insight, September 30, 2013 6:40 PM

This  is  an  awful  lot  of  information  but  all  of it  spells  one thing: "Be  aware  and  beware!

Samantha Fuller's curator insight, October 2, 2013 1:31 PM

"Our modern energy-, chemical- and genetically modified organism (GMO)-intensive industrial food and farming systems are the major cause of man-made global warming." Studies show that not only are greenhouse gasses caused by Carbon Dioxide but also by methane and nitrous oxide. Farming includes so many different ways of using fuel form the machinery to the end of food production. Another way farming isn't helping is through deforestation, and wetlands destruction. "When you add it all up, the picture is clear—contemporary agriculture is burning up our planet. And factory farms or, in industry lingo, Confined Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs), play a key role in this impending disaster." Climate rise is complex but a few of the top reasons are coal burning, and fossil fuels. To get this under control we would need to stop using 90% of the fosil fuels we are using.

Sally J. Everett's curator insight, October 10, 2013 9:33 AM

We can't live in fear of the future, we have to have farms no matter what they emit into the air. Without farms, we couldn't survive.

 LET THERE BE NO DOUBT:  THIS GEO-ENGINEERING OUR CLIMATE CAMPAIGN IS ABOUT PROFIT, BIG PROFIT.... FOLLOW THE MONEY

 

                                 EXCELLENT VIDEO REPORT

                                   May 20, 2013 Democracy Now

As the carbon dioxide in the air hits 400 parts per million for the first time in human history, some are arguing that the best way address climate change is to use the controversial practice of geoengineering — the deliberate altering of the Earth’s ecological and climate systems to counter the effects of global warming. ...

The arguments for and against climate engineering revealing the extent of vested interests linking researchers, venture capitalists and corporations with Clive Hamilton, professor of public ethics at Charles Sturt University in Canberra, Australia, He’s the author of Earthmasters: The Dawn of the Age of Climate Engineering.

There’s virtually no regulation of geoengineering. And when it comes to sulfate aerosol spraying, there’s nothing to prevent a government, any government, or even a corporation or a billionaire with a messiah complex, from launching a program of taking control of the Earth’s weather by installing this kind of solar shield. So the absence of governance, the absence of regulation and the exclusion, particularly of people from poor and vulnerable countries, is a very serious concern….

... But rather than rationalizing our continued use of fossil fuels in the false belief that technology will enable us to carry on with our destructive ways, we really need governments, scientists and industry to start taking climate change and greenhouse gas emissions seriously. We can't just engineer our way out of the problem.

This is not just a concern for older generations, as Blaylock informs us, but even for small children and babies.  Even home air-filtering systems aren’t going to help, because the particles are nano-sized, far too small to be eliminated by even the most costly home air filter... http://www.nationofchange.org/neurologist-warns-neurodegenerative-disease-surge-due-chemtrail-spraying-1378712902

pdjmoo's insight:

Climate change is the result, not the cause, of many factors involving human-caused destruction of the balance within our planetary biosphere. We all need to simply stop what is creating it and put our brilliant minds to finding a new way of living on this planet in harmony with our natural world. We also have to cease raping and pillaging the planet for profit as if it is our private piggy bank.  By collective focus on restoring the planet a new economy and criteria for "jobs" would automatically evolve.  The old military minded capitalism mindset has gotten us into this mess - and is over if we want to survive.   If we keep pushing we will not only destroy humanity but all life on Planet Earth.

Why is it we can't envision something entirely different than the way we have been operating?  Profiting from the destruction of our planet is insane.

Daniel LaLiberte's curator insight, May 27, 2013 3:24 PM

We are ALREADY messing with nature, absolutely and catastrophically.  We must stop that, no question, as soon as possible, as fast as feasible.   Whatever we do should NOT be used as a substitute for eliminating all fossil fuel burning.  Full stop!

 

But it simply won't be enough to merely stop burning fossil fuels, because it is too late to stop the reinforcing feedbacks that will make things much much worse.  If we don't do anything more, then we are giving up, we are admitting defeat and accepting all the worsening destruction that follows.

 

To restore nature, we have NO choice but to mess with nature some more in order to actively counter the effects and the causes of global warming and all the rest of our destructive practices.  We must do it right, of course, and not make things worse.  It is not enough to deal with just the symptoms of the problems, but we must get at the underlying causes.  We must do it on a global scale, because the problems are global.   It won't be a short term solution because these are necessarily long term problems that require long term solutions.

 

We MUST save the planet by messing with nature.  But we also must solve a large number of other problems that allowed us to get into this mess.  Unrestrained irresponsible exploitation of nature for the benefit of a few is at the root of all those problems.

Why climate change gets the silent treatment, and what we should do about it.

This week, in an encore broadcast, scientist Anthony Leiserowitz, director of the Yale Project on Climate Change Communication, joins Bill to describe his efforts to galvanize communities over what’s arguably the greatest single threat facing humanity. Leiserowitz, who specializes in the psychology of risk perception, knows better than anyone if people are willing to change their behavior to make a difference... http://billmoyers.com/episode/encore-ending-the-silence-on-climate-change/

pdjmoo's insight:

Climate Change is the RESULT not the cause.  It is a combination of factors and behaviors we have been engaging in over the past centuries that have depleted and devasted our ecosystems, biodiversity and environments that have created an imbalance in our biosphere that it cannot absorb or maintain. Emptying our oceans; urban growth; CO2 emissions into atmosphere; destruction of nature's biodiversity balance; pesticides poisoning soils, species and water changing the eco and chemical balance.  Big Agriculture and it's dependence on fossilfuels.

Do we want to live in a world devoid of nature, wildlife, living off lab-created food and pharmaceuticals?

Our body is part of the greater planetary body - it is designed to respond to the outer circumstances of the greater web of life.  If we do not put our efforts to restoring it, we may well may become an extinct species on this planet by end of century.

Without our natural world we do not exist.  To the degree She is sick and out of balance so are we. 

Let us beginning responding to course correct.  Our fellow travellers (other species) on this planet are suffering and disappearing fast. This is within our power.
