“We Are Running Out of Time” – New Reports on Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Comments Off on “We Are Running Out of Time” – New Reports on Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Two new reports have been released this week that demonstrate the consequences of inadequate action on reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Tuesday the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) released its report on current greenhouse gas levels in the atmosphere, and on Monday PwC released its Low Carbon Economy Index 2014 . The WMO report states atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations “reached a new record high in 2013, propelled by a surge in levels of carbon dioxide,” and the PwC report argues that current efforts to reduce carbon emissions actually have us on track for a 4°C warmer world by 2100, instead of the only 2°C (3.6°F) increase we are aiming for.

Comments Off on Boy Scout Leaders Destroy 200 Million Year-Old Rock Formation in Utah State Park

In the running for today’s “humans are the dumbest species” award are three Boy Scout leaders from Utah . During a recent church camping trip in Goblin Valley State Park, a place known for unique red rock formations known as “goblins,” the men took it upon themselves to topple a stone formation that was nearly 200 million years old. As if that decision wasn’t questionable enough, they also videotaped the act and then posted it on Facebook. By publicizing their destructive behavior, the men may have opened themselves to felony charges.

Britain Breaks Ground On First New Nuclear Power Plant Since Fukushima Disaster

Comments Off on Britain Breaks Ground On First New Nuclear Power Plant Since Fukushima Disaster

The Fukushima nuclear power plant remains a toxic disaster more than two years after an earthquake and tsunami struck coastal Japan. While damages to local residents and the environment are still being discovered, the 2011 catastrophe did compel the rest of the world to take a long, hard look at the true risks of nuclear power and many countries announced they would begin to phase out their nuclear programs in favor of renewable alternatives. That lesson seems to have been lost on British leadership, however. This morning, Prime Minister David Cameron announced that his government has signed an agreement with French-owned EDF to build the first new British nuclear power station in 20 years. According to the Guardian , Cameron hailed the agreement as “a very big day for Britain” that “would kickstart a new generation of nuclear power in the UK.” Read the rest of Britain Breaks Ground On First New Nuclear Power Plant Since Fukushima Disaster Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: britain , britain’s new nuclear power plant , first nuclear plant since Fukushima , Fukushima , nuclear , nuclear disaster , nuclear power , nuclear power plant , renewable energy , safety , UK
