The Ambient Carbon-Capture Imperative

The Ambient Carbon-Capture Imperative | Sustainability | Scoop.it

Last month, the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere surpassed 400 parts per million for the first time in roughly three million years. If the current trend, which fits the worst-case scenario laid out by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), persists, CO2 concentrations will rise above 800 ppm toward the end of this century – with devastating consequences.
Indeed, the predicted global average temperature increase of 2.4-6.4°C caused by such high ambient CO2 concentrations is expected to trigger the worst outcomes foreseen in the IPCC scenarios, including the loss of an estimated 40% of species, more frequent extreme weather events, and widespread water scarcity. In order to avoid imposing such risk and uncertainty on future generations, global carbon emissions, which stand at 8.5 gigatons annually, must be halved by 2050.

People Get Ready: 'Unprecedented' Weather Glimpses Century Ahead

People Get Ready: 'Unprecedented' Weather Glimpses Century Ahead | Sustainability | Scoop.it

It was a decade of 'unprecedented' extreme weather, caused by warmer oceans, hotter temperatures, and an atmosphere saturated with moisture. And there's more where that came from.The rate of rising oceans has doubled, the heat temperatures for both land and water are on the rise, the melting of the Arctic ice is speeding up, and both the weather extremes the world is experiencing and the overall global warming trends are simply 'unprecedented.'

That's the assessment contained in the World Meteorological Organization's latest report, The Global Climate 2001-2010, A Decade of Climate Extremes, which examined the first decade of the 21st century. The report, released Wednesday, arrived with this warning: we better get ready for more.

June 20, 2013 BirdLife International

Declines in birds across the globe are providing evidence of a rapid deterioration in the global environment that is affecting all life on earth – including people. However, birds also tell us that saving the planet comes at a relatively small price – an investment that’s vital to secure our own future.

These are some of the messages in a new report State of the world’s birds: indicators for our changing world by the world’s largest Partnership of conservation organisations...

“Birds provide an accurate and easy to read environmental barometer that allows us to see clearly the pressures our current way of life are putting on the world’s biodiversity”, said Dr Leon Bennun, BirdLife’s Director of Science, Information and Policy.... http://www.birdlife.org/community/2013/06/birds-indicate-a-planet-in-peril-but-investing-in-conservation-makes-economic-sense/

BIOLOGICAL DESERTS: THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS OF THE GMO MONOCULTURE BIOFUEL AND PALM OIL INDUSTRY

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

Monica S Mcfeeters's curator insight, July 19, 2013 2:49 AM

Here are many links all in one place so you can start looking over the bird situation from one site. I think we all love birds when they don't leave us too many "presents" in the wrong places or wake us up too early. I certainly will lovingly accept unwanted presents if the price is to loose my feathered friends.

 

I personally share my yard and often my porch or deck with a peacock that decided to live at my house.  I clean-up a bit after him and he loudy lets me know when someone strange is in the yard.....And then we just walk, fly, sit and stand around watching each other do things.

NEW ZEALAND: Sealord commit to go FAD free

NEW ZEALAND: Sealord commit to go FAD free | Sustainability | Scoop.it

Greenpeace has welcomed news that Sealord will phase out a destructive tuna fishing method that kills sharks, turtles and baby tuna. Sealord announced this afternoon that it plans to remove the method from its supply chain of canned skipjack tuna by early 2014. Currently Sealord buys much of its tuna from boats using purse seine nets set on fish aggregating devices (FADs). These floating lures attract far more than adult tuna and this destructive method is globally responsible for catching about 200,000 tonnes of other marine life every year.
Greenpeace New Zealand Oceans Campaigner Karli Thomas says the Sealord announcement is another important step towards protecting the marine environment and halting the decline of Pacific tuna stocks, the main source of canned tuna sold in New Zealand.

"This is great news, and makes the weekly supermarket shop easier for mums and dads everywhere, who can now have more confidence that their canned tuna won't be caught using methods that can kill sharks, turtles and baby tuna," says Thomas.

“It’s a real reflection of the changing market reality. Gone are the days of being able to peddle unsustainable tuna which costs the oceans far more than the price on the can.”

Two years ago Greenpeace launched a campaign calling on New Zealand’s five big brands of canned tuna to stop destructive tuna fishing. Since then thousands of Greenpeace supporters contacted Sealord urging the company to “change your tuna”.
 
A similar campaign targeting tuna brands in Australia started last year. Today’s announcement by Sealord means all the big Australasian tuna brands have now committed to phase out FAD-caught tuna. The same changes have already been announced by all the major tuna brands and retailers in the UK as well as the Safeway supermarket chain in the US.

In New Zealand, Pams and Fish 4 Ever are now offering New Zealand shoppers FAD-free and more sustainable pole and line caught tuna. Greenseas. John West and Countdown’s own brands will be changing within the next three years.

"We'd like Sealord to make the ban on FADs permanent as any re-introduction will only contribute to overfishing problems in the Pacific," says Thomas.

Yale Environment 360: Desert Tree Plantings Could Lower Atmospheric CO2 Levels

Yale Environment 360: Desert Tree Plantings Could Lower Atmospheric CO2 Levels | Sustainability | Scoop.it

The large-scale planting of jatropha trees in the world’s arid regions could help reduce atmospheric levels of carbon dioxide, a new study says. Using computer models and data from plantations in Egypt, India, and Madagascar, a team of German scientists calculated that plantations of the durable, scrubby Jatropha tree — which can also be used as a biofuel — could capture 17 to 25 tons of carbon dioxide per hectare annually. Jatropha is particularly suited for so-called “carbon farming” because it can grow in hot, dry regions where the soil is unsuitable for food crops, according to the study, published in the journal Earth System Dynamics.

Thorium nuclear reactor trial begins, could provide cleaner, safer, almost-waste-free energy

Thorium nuclear reactor trial begins, could provide cleaner, safer, almost-waste-free energy | Sustainability | Scoop.it

At a test site in Norway, Thor Energy has successfully created a thorium nuclear reactor — but not in the sense that most people think of when they hear the word thorium. The Norwegians haven’t solved the energy crisis and global warming in one fell swoop — they haven’t created a cold fusion thorium reactor. What they have done, though, which is still very cool, is use thorium instead of uranium in a conventional nuclear reactor. In one fell swoop, thorium fuel, which is safer, less messy to clean up, and not prone to nuclear weapons proliferation, could quench the complaints of nuclear power critics everywhere.
