Comments Off on Is coastal tourism in danger of going underwater?

In late 2018, the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change scientists released a startling report about the impending impacts of rising temperatures. On our present track, the world is predicted to warm by 2 degrees Celsius compared to preindustrial levels by 2040.For the coastal tourism industry, a 2-degree Celsius rise in temperatures would be catastrophic.

Comments Off on Our carbon budget could be shot in five years, researchers say

As we hurtle towards the 2 degrees Celsius limit, climate scientists at CarbonBrief scrutinized carbon budgets to see how long we have left before we use them up. These budgets relate amounts of carbon humans can emit to stay below 1.5 degrees, 2 degrees, and 3 degrees Celsius greater than levels before the Industrial Revolution. The findings weren’t good. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VbhlWSxcoYg CarbonBrief utilized carbon budgets prepared by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate…

Comments Off on New IPCC chief: Let’s focus on climate change solutions rather than more research

The realm of science is not wholly unlike the realm of journalism. Many feel that a tenet of the trade is to observe and report without getting involved. However, the new leader of the world’s foremost climate science agency disagrees. Hoesung Lee, the newly appointed head of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), thinks it’s time to shift the focus from investigating the effects of climate change to finding solutions. In the weeks leading up to the Paris climate talks, can this new perspective help shape the discussion on a global scale?

Comments Off on Pachauri. Semi-autographical Sex Tinged Novel. Oh Boy.

photo via Flickr The UN’s top climate official and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007, Rajendra Pachauri, has penned a novel that reportedly mixes global warming lectures with steamy sex scenes involving a male protagonist that resembles Pachauri himself. An engineer by training, Pachauri has endured the recent failings in Copenhagen and the recent attacks on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change over charges that the group wasn’t careful enough when editing their 2007 global warming assessment….

Comments Off on Community Planning for Peak Oil: This Doesn’t Look So Dark (video)

Image credit: Transition Whidbey I posted on Friday about Worldchanging’s critic of the Dark Side of Transition Towns , in which Alex Steffen argued that the Transition Town movement is effectively burying its head in the sand—promoting ineffectual, perhaps folksy [I paraphrase], individual action instead of systemic or political change, and maybe even gleefully anticipating a social collapse. No sooner do I finish writing about the ensuing debate, that I come across a video that, I think, shows the true heart of Transition. …

Image credit: South Park / Comedy Central As I noted in my post on The Art of the Eco-argument , we’re often better off leading our own lives than telling others how to lead theirs. In fact, if eco-snobbery is left unchecked , it could lead to a major backlash against the environmental movement
