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 | 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

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.

July 28, 2013 Rolling Stone

Greenland's ice sheets are melting faster than anyone predicted. Why  glaciologist Jason Box's radical theory may not be so radical after all...

The expedition, called the Dark Snow Project, is the first crowd-sourced scientific research trip to Greenland. “The old ways of doing things aren’t working,” Box tells me one evening. “I want to pursue big ideas, but I also want to communicate them in ways that the public understands. Scientists need to do everything they can to wake people up. It is our job, our moral responsibility.”http://www.rollingstone.com/greenland-melting?stop_mobi=yes
