The Biggest Criminal Enterprise in History - Destroying the Planet for Record Profits

The Biggest Criminal Enterprise in History - Destroying the Planet for Record Profits | Messenger for mother Earth | 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

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.

#HeatWave Across North, Central And Western #India As Temperatures Cross 45 Degrees: 10 Points #climate | Messenger for mother Earth | Scoop.it
It's just the third week of April, but temperatures across northern, central and western India have crossed 45 degrees Celsius. The weather department says that most of India is facing a severe heat wave. Though temperatures around 45 degrees is not new, it is unexpected for this time of year - some say a month early. The MeT department, however, said this is temporary and farmers need not worry about a prolonged dry spell. Monsoons are expected to be normal.

The #Arctic #Ocean as a dead end for floating #plastics in the North #Atlantic branch of the Thermohaline Circulation #pollution

The #Arctic #Ocean as a dead end for floating #plastics in the North #Atlantic branch of the Thermohaline Circulation #pollution | Messenger for mother Earth | Scoop.it
The subtropical ocean gyres are recognized as great marine accummulation zones of floating plastic debris; however, the possibility of plastic accumulation at polar latitudes has been overlooked because of the lack of nearby pollution sources. In the present study, the Arctic Ocean was extensively sampled for floating plastic debris from the Tara Oceans circumpolar expedition. Although plastic debris was scarce or absent in most of the Arctic waters, it reached high concentrations (hundreds of thousands of pieces per square kilometer) in the northernmost and easternmost areas of the Greenland and Barents seas. The fragmentation and typology of the plastic suggested an abundant presence of aged debris that originated from distant sources. This hypothesis was corroborated by the relatively high ratios of marine surface plastic to local pollution sources. Surface circulation models and field data showed that the poleward branch of the Thermohaline Circulation transfers floating debris from the North Atlantic to the Greenland and Barents seas, which would be a dead end for this plastic conveyor belt. Given the limited surface transport of the plastic that accumulated here and the mechanisms acting for the downward transport, the seafloor beneath this Arctic sector is hypothesized as an important sink of plastic debris.

The Aral Sea was once the fourth largest body of inland water in the world with an area of 68,000 km2 but, as the map dramatically illustrates, it has now shrunk and fragmented to a mere shadow of its former self.

It lies between Kazakhstan to the north and Uzbekistan to the south. Its drainage basin also includes parts of Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan and Afghanistan.


Its name roughly translates as “Sea of Islands” in reference to the over one thousand islands that one dotted its waters – but no more.
