In a historic achievement including nearly 200 countries, world leaders have finally reached a climate agreement in Paris. Cheers and applause rang out in the hall after the gavel fell, marking an end to the tension over talks that have been ongoing for weeks and a deal has been decades in the making. The agreement has required a careful dance of compromise and cooperation and sets an ambitious goal of halting warming at 2 degrees Celsius, with measures to aim for 1.5 degrees.

Comments Off on International Organization Calls Outlook for Environment “Grim”

The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) just released their first environmental outlook since 2008, and to use their words, things look “grim”. The OECD Environmental Outlook to 2050: The Consequences of Inaction paints a very dark picture for the human race if it does not change its emissions-heavy, resource guzzling ways. The OECD now joins the International Energy Agency in the not so subtle task of alerting world leaders that their inability to reach consensus on this growing issue could put the entire human race in jeopardy much earlier than previously thought.

Comments Off on Multi-Agency Soumi Satellite Will Provide Insight Into Climate Change & Air Pollution

The Soumi National Polar-orbiting Partnership satellite launched in October of 2011 on a mission to measure the Earth’s environmental systems. The satellite was developed by a partnership between NASA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration ( NOAA ) and the Department of Defense ( DOD ), and it has now been completely commissioned and is ready to start its important observation work . The satellite will be measuring the Earth’s climate, clouds, oceans, and vegetation in an effort to study the changes in Earth’s systems. NASA researchers say that the satellite could be critical in understanding and predicting changes in the Earth’s systems over the coming years as the effects of climate change take hold.

Official Doomsday Clock Moves One Minute Closer to End of World Due to Climate Change, Nuclear Proliferation

Comments Off on Official Doomsday Clock Moves One Minute Closer to End of World Due to Climate Change, Nuclear Proliferation

A well-known group of scientists decided yesterday that Earth’s doomsday is now one minute closer due to global inaction on climate change and the ongoing threat of nuclear disaster. The decision was made by the Board of the Bulletin of the Atomic Sciences (BAS) – a magazine that covers global security and public policy issues, which was founded in 1945 by the group of scientists who helped develop the first atomic weapons. BAS’s Board of Directors and Board of Sponsors — a group that includes 18 Nobel Laureates — decided to move their doomsday clock (a symbolic gauge of nuclear danger) to five minutes to midnight from six minutes to midnight partially due to the disastrous consequences of the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan, American and Russian disagreement on nuclear disarmament and the inability of World leaders to come to meaningful consensus at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Durban .

Comments Off on EU Environment Commissioner Says Resource Waste Will Lead To A New Recession

At first the recession saw a reduction in global emissions as industries around the world made cutbacks – however now, in a bid to survive, many companies are making cheaper, more environmentally damaging choices in order to reduce costs. This includes not seeking out alternative energy due to the cost of implementation, and simply cutting corners where possible. In a damming assessment of the global situation, EU Environmental Commissioner Janez Poto?nik recently said that the current overuse and waste of valuable natural resources is threatening to produce a fresh economic crisis.

National 9/11 Museum Will Not Open in 2012 Due to Financial Dispute

Comments Off on National 9/11 Museum Will Not Open in 2012 Due to Financial Dispute

Last year thousands of people visited the National 9/11 Memorial as it opened in New York City, however it turns out that the accompanying 9/11 Museum will not be opening anytime soon due to a financial dispute between the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. Both organizations refuse to pay for the site’s infrastructure costs – which amount to hundreds of millions of dollars – and as a result the museum designed by Snohetta is expected to miss its projected opening date of September 11, 2012.
