CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL
 One Planet, One Environment, One Humanity. Human-Caused Climate Change Should Be A Wake-up Call to Us All. We need a healthy, balanced natural world for the survival of all species.   To the degree our planet is sick and out of balance so are we.  We must return to our deep interconnection with Nature for our own health and survival  to nutture and revive the harm we humans have wrought.  Nature First.

- ▶ As the carbon dioxide in the air hits 400 parts per million for the first time in human history, some are arguing that the best way address climate change is to use the controversial practice of geoengineering — the deliberate altering of the Earth’s ecological and climate systems to counter the effects of global warming. ...

The arguments for and against climate engineering revealing the extent of vested interests linking researchers, venture capitalists and corporations with

Clive Hamilton, professor of public ethics at Charles Sturt University in Canberra, Australia, He’s the author of Earthmasters: The Dawn of the Age of Climate Engineering.

- ▶ There’s virtually no regulation of geoengineering. And when it comes to sulfate aerosol spraying, there’s nothing to prevent a government, any government, or even a corporation or a billionaire with a messiah complex, from launching a program of taking control of the Earth’s weather by installing this kind of solar shield. So the absence of governance, the absence of regulation and the exclusion, particularly of people from poor and vulnerable countries, is a very serious concern….

Studies show this is the case when Monsanto's "Roundup" is combined with aluminum. The ongoing climate engineering programs are raining down huge amounts of aluminum (and other toxic metals and chemicals) on the entire surface of the planet which is being absorbed by all life forms

WE COULD SPRAY CHEAP CHEMICALS IN THE AIR TO SLOW CLIMATE CHANGE.  SHOULD WE? 

THINK. THINK. THINK

BEYOND THIS MYOPIC THOUGHT PROCESS 

Here We Go Again...short term thinking, short term fixes... what about these chemicals raining down on the planet...the impact for people's and environment health? This is not new...experiments have been going on secretly for years.  There is always a profit thrust behind these quick fixes, and easy to trace back. One must think ecologically and holistically for the dilemma we are in eg the rush for #desalination that plays havoc with the toxic discharge destroying ocean ecosystems. The rush to genetically engineer life without the grander repercussions on our natural ecosystems and biodiversity and human DNA.  

First, find eco-friendly alternatives for our problems, e.g. alternative to timber for construction so we don't destroy our forests; Science does not have all the answers...Nature Does If You Will Put Down Your Books and Observe Her.

- ▶ CLIMATE AND GEOENGINEERING - THE PRECAUTIONARY PRINCIPLE

Geoengineering is the intentional, large-scale technological manipulation of the Earth’s systems, often discussed as a techno-fix for combating climate change. Climate geoengineering technologies can be divided into three broad areas: so-called solar radiation management (reflecting sunlight to space), greenhouse gas removal and sequestration and weather modification.

Now three combined research projects, led by teams from the universities of Leeds, Bristol and Oxford, have explored the implications in more detail. http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-30197085

 

YaleEnvironment360, January 09, 2014

- ▶ GEOENGINEERING IS INSANE

Putting a million tons of sulfur into the stratosphere each year would probably “contribute to thousands of air pollution deaths a year,” Harvard University physicist David Keith acknowledges. Because solar geoengineering doesn’t affect the amount of carbon dioxide in the air, ocean acidification would continue unabated. And sulfates would alter atmospheric chemistry toward formation of ozone-destroying chlorine compounds, which could lead to a moderate increase in skin cancers or ultraviolet damage to plant life. Sulfates would also make the sky a little whiter than usual and sunsets more dramatic, scientists say.

Toronto Star, November 10, 2014
- ▶ MANY EXPERTS SAY TECHNOLOGY CAN'T FIX CLIMATE CHANGE. First among these proposed geoengineering solutions is solar radiation management, or SRM, which would involve millions of tons of rotten smelling sulphur dioxide (SO2) being pumped into the stratosphere every year to create sun-blocking clouds high above the Earth’s surface.

▶ AGAINST GEOENGINEERING: Co-published with Science for the People.Geoengineering is a risky business. It is so risky, in fact, that it should be banned.

Proponents of geoengineering recognize that it will “create losers and winners” — some places may benefit from the intentional atmospheric changes, but others will suffer. But this is an overly glib euphemism. In some cases, there will be millions or billions of “losers.”

pdjmoo's insight:

Climate change is the result, not the cause, of many factors involving human-caused destruction of the balance of environment within our planetary biosphere. We all need to simply stop our destructive ways and put our brilliant minds to finding a new way of living on this planet in harmony with our natural world. We  have to cease raping and pillaging the planet for profit as if it is our private piggy bank.  By collective focus on restoring the planet a new economy and criteria for "jobs" would automatically evolve.  The old military minded capitalism mindset has lead us to this mess - and we must move past it if we are to survive.   If we keep pushing we will not only destroy humanity but all life on Planet Earth. Why is it we can't envision something entirely different than the way we have been operating?  Profiting from the destruction of our planet is insane.

Daniel LaLiberte's curator insight, May 27, 2013 3:24 PM

We are ALREADY messing with nature, absolutely and catastrophically.  We must stop that, no question, as soon as possible, as fast as feasible.   Whatever we do should NOT be used as a substitute for eliminating all fossil fuel burning.  Full stop!

 

But it simply won't be enough to merely stop burning fossil fuels, because it is too late to stop the reinforcing feedbacks that will make things much much worse.  If we don't do anything more, then we are giving up, we are admitting defeat and accepting all the worsening destruction that follows.

 

To restore nature, we have NO choice but to mess with nature some more in order to actively counter the effects and the causes of global warming and all the rest of our destructive practices.  We must do it right, of course, and not make things worse.  It is not enough to deal with just the symptoms of the problems, but we must get at the underlying causes.  We must do it on a global scale, because the problems are global.   It won't be a short term solution because these are necessarily long term problems that require long term solutions.

 

We MUST save the planet by messing with nature.  But we also must solve a large number of other problems that allowed us to get into this mess.  Unrestrained irresponsible exploitation of nature for the benefit of a few is at the root of all those problems.

Climate change is present in every single meteorological event, according to scientists who study global warming and extreme weather....reminds us of that awesome power, which is beyond our control and at the limits of our comprehension. We have also learned that humanity is meddling with that power, primarily through the burning of coal and oil that increases the amount of heat trapped in the atmosphere and oceans.
