Report: How Keystone XL Tar Sands Pipeline Flunks the Climate Test

Report: How Keystone XL Tar Sands Pipeline Flunks the Climate Test | Sustainability | Scoop.it
In June, President Obama set a climate test for his decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. He said he will not approve the pipeline if it would significantly exacerbate the problem of carbon pollution. Today the Sierra Club, Oil Change International, and 13 partner groups have released a report that settles the issue unequivocally: Keystone XL would be a climate disaster. The report estimates that the pipeline would carry and emit more than 181-million metric tons of carbon pollution each year -- the equivalent of adding 37.7 million cars to U.S. roads, or 51 new coal-fired power plants.

Contemporary agriculture is burning up our planet

Contemporary agriculture is burning up our planet | Sustainability | Scoop.it
A growing number of organic consumers, natural health advocates and climate hawks are taking a more comprehensive look at the fundamental causes of global warming. And its led them to this sobering conclusion: Modern, industrial, monocrop farming are burning up our planet. How did they reach this conclusion? First, by taking a more inclusive look at the scientific data on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions—not just carbon dioxide (CO2), but also methane and nitrous oxide. Next, by doing a full accounting of the fossil fuel consumption and emissions of the entire industrial food and farming cycle, including inputs, equipment, production, processing, distribution, heating, cooling and waste. And finally, by factoring in the indirect impacts of contemporary agriculture, which include deforestation and wetlands destruction.,,, http://www.nationofchange.org/how-factory-farming-contributes-global-warming-1358786945 July 30, 2013 Environmental Working Group REPORT: 7.2 MILLION ACRES OF WETLANDS AND FRAGILE LAND GO UNDER THE PLOW http://www.ewg.org/release/72-million-acres-wetlands-and-fragile-land-go-under-plow November 1, 2012 Mongabay FROM 'FERTILIZER TO FORK': FOOD ACCOUNTS FOR A QUARTER OF THE WORLD'S GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS http://news.mongabay.com/2012/1101-hance-agriculture-greenhouse-gases.html January 13, 2012 Grist LEXICON OF SUSTAINABILITY: BIODIVERSITY vs MONOCULTURE http://grist.org/sustainable-food/2012-01-13-lexicon-of-sustainability-biodiviersity-vs-monoculture/ August 1, 2013 Science Daily EXISTING CROPLAND COULD FEED FOUR BILLION MORE BY DROPPING BIOFUELS AND ANIMAL FEED http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/08/130801125704.htm FOOD FORESTS CAN MITIGATE RISKS OF 'FEAST OR FAMINE".
