▶  DESPITE CLIMATE CHANGE, AFRICAN CAN FEED AFRICA. There is a continuing argument as to whether the industrial agricultural revolution will solve some or all of Africa's climate change problems. However, experts maintain that industrial agriculture currently accounts for one third of all greenhouse gas emissions--the very element most responsible for climate change. Additionally, they believe that the resources and infrastructure required to operate an industrial agricultural system in Africa are impractical for smallholder farmers... http://allafrica.com/stories/201402191455.html

TERRACIDE: The Biggest Criminal Enterprise in History - Destroying the Planet for Record Profits | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it

 May 23, 2013 Tom Engelhardt - Common Dreams

-▶ TERRACIDE AND THE TERRARISTS ...

 Call it irony, if you will, or call it a nightmare, but Big Oil evidently has no qualms about making its next set of profits directly off melting the planet.  Its top executives continue to plan their futures (and so ours), knowing that their extremely profitable acts are destroying the very habitat, the very temperature range that for so long made life comfortable for humanity.

Their prior knowledge of the damage they are doing is what should make this a criminal activity.  And there are corporate precedents for this, even if on a smaller scale.  The lead industry, the asbestos industry, and the tobacco companies all knew the dangers of their products, made efforts to suppress the information or instill doubt about it even as they promoted the glories of what they made, and went right on producing and selling while others suffered and died.... http://www.commondreams.org/view/2013/05/23-4

Daniel LaLiberte's curator insight, May 27, 2013 3:06 PM

We will have enough trouble repairing the centuries of accumulated damage to the environment (to the extent we can) without simultaneously creating more.  No matter what, we need to shut down the entire fossil fuel industry as soon as possible, as fast as feasible.

pdjmoo's insight:

Clean, Renewable Energy should not further harm the environment or our ecosystems.   We have to be mindful of the absolute need to preserve and maintain our fragile environment that all species play their part in.  Birds are crucial to this ecosystem and we are losing them by the millions. We must begin to think differently from our conditioned military industrial mindset, top-down GDP mindset where big business controls our energy and food.

- ▶  Scientists are working hard to understand the life that teems within our soil and that is threatened by farming and development...

Forget the term “dumb as dirt.” The complex soil ecosystem is highly evolved and sophisticated. It processes organic waste into soil. It filters and cleans much of the water we drink and the air we breathe by retaining dust and pathogens. It plays a large role in how much carbon dioxide is in the atmosphere. Soil, with all of its organic matter, is second to the oceans as the largest carbon repository on the planet. Annual plowing, erosion and other mismanagement releases carbon in the form of carbon dioxide, and exacerbates climate change... http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/12/opinion/sunday/the-hidden-world-of-soil-under-our-feet.html?ref=opinion&_r=0

The mass clearing of trees for farmland disturbs the ecosystem of the rainforest by decimating rare and exotic flora and fauna. With the planting of a single crop plantation, the natural biodiversity of the rainforest is lost. The mono-crop culture that has long-plagued environmentalists in the west displaces or destroys most of the species in a single sitting, as they are unable to adapt to living within vast acres of a single crop. The environment, habitats and species that are destroyed have lived together since the dawn of the rainforest, and the damage caused by palm oil farming is irreversible http://sco.lt/9AeHbN

Yale Global, 15 March 2013 Yale Global

ENDING SUBSIDIES FOR FOSSIL FUELS COULD SLOW CLIMATE CHANGE Governments have long provided subsidies, direct and indirect, on fuels for both consumers and producers. Providing subsidies on fossil fuels is costly in terms of public health and climate change. In 2009, G20 leaders agreed that subsidies should be curtailed, but Asian countries continue to fund subsidies to support economic growth. Subsidies for consumers lead to waste, traffic and pollution. Yet less scrutinized, according to Will Hickey of SolBridge University, are the many subsidies for fossil-fuel producers not available to producers of alternative fuels: preferential land-acquisition policies, support for infrastructure like ports or highways, special financing for exploration, quick approval for destruction of habitat and eminent domain, resistance to pollution regulations or low penalties for violations, and even government guarantees of profits. The subsidies distort market pricing, contributing to inefficiencies and waste. For emerging economies of Asia, the subsidies are unsustainable as fuel prices rise, exports for emerging economies decline, and the environmental and health costs rise. – YaleGlobal..  http://yaleglobal.yale.edu/content/fossil-fuel-subsidies-help-asia-roar

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change recently reported that CO2 emissions from fossil fuel combustion and industrial processes were responsible for approximately 78 per cent of the total increase in greenhouse gas emissions between 1970 and 2010. Experts say reducing or eliminating harmful fossil fuel subsidies - and properly pricing energy to account for environmental impacts - is one of the most promising ways governments can promote a transition to a greener economy, and even the playing field for investments in energy efficiency and renewable energy. http://www.unep.org/NewsCentre/default.aspx?DocumentID=2787&ArticleID=10837&l=en

| April 13, 2013 The Energy Collective

Famous for Volvo, Ikea and Absolut Vodka, Sweden is now on a new pursuit to become the first completely oil-free economy in the world by 2020.

The oil crisis in the early 1970s forced Sweden to embark on a quest for alternative energy sources. Its phasing out of oil has proceeded smoothly; in 1970, oil accounted for 77% of Sweden’s energy, but by 2003 that figure fell to 32%.... http://theenergycollective.com/znesheiwat/208421/swedens-quest-be-first-oil-free-nation

Whether Sweeden will achive their objective can be debated , but their resolve is backed by robust strategy and plan. And they are on path, even for the transport sector . FFV (Flexi-Fuel-Vehicle) is somethig that can inspire Public Private Partnerships even in the developinf countries  

CineversityTV's curator insight, April 21, 2013 1:34 PM

who's next, surely not my country, the Netherlands with its rightwing government Rutte II

Daniel LaLiberte's curator insight, May 27, 2013 2:55 PM

Eliminating the burning of all fossil fuels for economic reasons is perfectly reasonable, especially if the full and true costs of the fossil fuel industry are factored in.

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.

Study Finds Plants Flowering And Leafing Much Earlier Compared To Climate Models | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it

April 9, 2013 - Abut My Planet

Climate modeling has become an important method of attempting to determine the impacts of climate change in years to come. However, climate modeling is not without faults. Climate modeling is an evolving process which is refining along the way. A new study based on plants indicates that some significant tweaking is required for some climate models. Led by Dr. Elizabeth Wolkovich from the University of British Columbia, the study evaluated flowering and leafing plants for their blooming dates. Published in the journal Nature, the researchers determined that the current climate models are significantly lagging behind the real-time impacts of leafing and flowering plants... http://www.aboutmyplanet.com/environment/study-finds-plants-flowering-and-leafing-much-earlier-compared-to-climate-models/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+Aboutmyplanetcom+%28aboutMyPlanet.com%29

Samantha Fuller's curator insight, October 2, 2013 1:15 PM

"Wildfires last summer burned more than 9 million acres across the U.S." Most of these Fires happened in the West and Southwest. To add on to that the precipitation has not been as high as expected possibly causeing more of these fires in the future. This will also effect the climate change. Dry climates with fire, without rain is already increasing the climate to rise. In the Rocky Mountains snowfall is not as large as in the past. Snow also has been  melting sooner in the spring. These effects are happening all over the world including Russia and Alaska, "Canada, the average amount of land burned annually by wildfires has doubled since the 1970s." Now that these fires are so populare some of the consern is directed to the soil. Parched soil will prevent many new growths of these aburnt forests. 

“Fires are simply going to be reintroduced by nature, augmented by climate change,” he said. “I think the land’s going to burn, and then we’ll go from there.” -Westerling

Too cold for comfort: British weather having a serious effect on wildlife

Too cold for comfort: British weather having a serious effect on wildlife | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it

31 March, 2013 - The Independent

While most of Britain has reason to curse the coldest March in 50 years, there are other inhabitants for whom the inclement weather this weekend has more serious consequences. Experts fear the impact on wildlife could be far reaching. Migrant birds are few and far between; breeding is delayed, and it is thought some of our favourite species – including the swallow, chiffchaff and sand martin, might produce only half their expected broods this year. "We are nearing the tipping point," said Paul Stancliffe of the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO). "It could end up being a very bad breeding season."... http://www.independent.co.uk/environment/nature/too-cold-for-comfort-british-weather-having-a-serious-effect-on-wildlife-8555232.html

▶  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. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dr-reese-halter/australian-honeybees-unable-to-make-honey_b_4670475.html

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.

Will we be able to stop climate change? reverse climate change? Or is it a natural phenomenon that occurs at various times throughout history ? Is it much to be a natural phenomenon for us to impact? Is it part of the evolutionary process?

THE SIXTH MASS EXTINCTION IS UPON US - CAN HUMANS SURVIVE? Are we in the first act of a mass extinction that will end in the death of millions of plant and animal species across the planet, including us? Proponents of the “sixth extinction” theory believe the answer is yes.

Some big empty rail yards, a pockmarked series of “reclaimed” sites no longer suitable for farming, and a bunch of homes nobody wants to live in any more?

Landowners filled in wetlands. They plowed into pristine prairies, releasing carbon dioxide that had been locked in the soil. Sprayers pumped out billions of pounds of fertilizer, some of which seeped into drinking water, contaminated rivers and worsened the huge dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico where marine life can’t survive. ... 15 million more acres of corn were planted last year than before the ethanol boom http://www.gazettenet.com/home/9190243-95/the-secret-dirty-cost-of-obamas-green-power-push

    6,000 violations, violations over 300 state-issued permits, hundreds of streams, tributaries and rivers, 79 active coal mines, 25 coal processing plants, where they put the coal and wash it before it’s shipped, over five Appalachian states. So it’s a pretty massive coverage area for the settlement.

China Announces Plans to Export Greenhouse Gases to Terraform Mars

China Announces Plans to Export Greenhouse Gases to Terraform Mars | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it

April 1, 2013 - Inhabitat

As an extension of China’s $16 billion plan to combat air pollution in its cities, today the CNSA announced an ambitious plan to export the nation’s emissions to Mars....

The unprecedented plan, they claim, would greatly reduce emissions on Earth while warming the climate on Mars, causing the planet’s polar ice caps to melt and eventually creating an atmosphere capable of sustaining life.

In pictures: Brutal drought lingers in Brazil

In pictures: Brutal drought lingers in Brazil | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it

29 March 2013 - Al Jazeera

Cattle are dying and farmers are going bankrupt as a severe drought continues in northeastern Brazil....

Brazil's northeast interior has been experiencing a severe drought in what should be the rainy season. 

"What falls from the sky does not fill a glass of water," Raimundo, a farmer, said. Natural vegetation, which would normally provide food for livestock, has dried up and many ranchers cannot afford to buy imported feed for their herds. Many farmers are on the brink of collapse, while others have given up on ranching and have moved to other parts of the country in search of work.
