the “tipping point”

Stefan Rahmstorf: The critical threshold… the “tipping point” in West Antarctica has passed…   Recently the ClimateState staff, interviewed Stefan Rahmstorf, Head of Earth System Analysis, at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research Robert Bristow: To get CO2 emissions under control – do you think some form of geoengineering (i.e CO2 scrubbing) will be desirable? Stefan Rahmstorf: The term geoengineering or climate engineering, encompasses a wide range of ideas....

Clear the Air

“Clear the Air: How Eskom’s coal kills” on Vimeo http://vimeo.com/99675319 And this is where you come into the story. Eskom’s application is still under consideration. Now’s our chance to speak up and demand that Eskom be held accountable for their pollution. Communities in Mpumalanga and across the country have a constitutional right to a healthy environment. Together we can ensure that those rights are protected, that human rights are put...

WOW!

BREAKING: We are winning the moral argument! The World Council of Churches, which represents 590 million Christians worldwide, has agreed to divest. Fossil fuels are now on its list of excluded, unethical investments alongside pornography, tobacco and arms. SHARE to help their divestment commitment resonate far and wide, with religious and other institutions alike! http://350.org/press-release/world-council-of-churches-endorses-fossil-fuel-divestment/

Methane – East Coast

NOAA In this visualization, the Gulf Stream is seen as the dark red current coming into the Atlantic Ocean from the Gulf of Mexico. By Miguel Llanos, NBC News A changing Gulf Stream off the East Coast has destabilized frozen methane deposits trapped under nearly 4,000 square miles of seafloor, scientists reported.  And since methane is even more potent than carbon dioxide as a global warming gas, the researchers said,...

Renewables Get $7.7 trillion

Renewable energy may reap as much as two-thirds of the $7.7 trillion in investment forecast for building new power plants by 2030 as declining costs make it more competitive with fossil fuels. About half of the investment will be in Asia, the region where power capacity will grow the most, according to the forecasts in a report released by Bloomberg New Energy Finance today. That will help global carbon dioxide emissions peak...

Atmospheric Oxygen

(a) CO2 concentrations (monthly averages) measured by continuous analysers over the period 1970 to 2005 from Mauna Loa, Hawaii (19°N, black; Keeling and Whorf, 2005) and Baring Head, New Zealand (41°S, blue; following techniques by Manning et al., 1997). Due to the larger amount of terrestrial biosphere in the NH, seasonal cycles in CO2 are larger there than in the...

LastHours.org

The film “Last Hours”… Last Hours describes a science-based climate scenario where a tipping point to runaway climate change is triggered by massive releases of frozen methane. Methane, a powerful greenhouse gas, has already started to percolate into the open seas and atmosphere from methane hydrate deposits beneath melting arctic ice, from the warming northern-hemisphere tundra, and from worldwide continental-shelf undersea methane pools. Burning fossil fuels release carbon that, principally...
