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....

Warming Water, Fish Fry

MEXICAN authorities say a mass die-off of fish at a lake in western Mexico was not due to natural causes. Over 33 metric tons of rotting dead fish have been removed from Lake Cajititlan in Jalisco state.  Abrupt changes in temperature or oxygen levels may have been responsible for earlier incidents.

68 consumer products with PCBs

Tests of 68 consumer products confirmed that polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are present in commonly used items. Forty-nine, or 72 percent, of the products contained at least one of four PCB types. PCBs have toxic effects to the immune, reproductive, nervous, and hormone-regulation systems in humans and other living things. PCBs also cause cancer in animals and are considered likely to cause cancer in humans. PCB contamination is widespread throughout Washington and found...

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.

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...

Ocean Acidification

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...
