Global Impacts Climate inaction to be 'catastrophe'
posted by on Monday, March 31, 2014 - 02:14 PM

gfoat writes "Costs of inaction on climate change will be "catastrophic", according to US Secretary of State John Kerry. Mr Kerry was responding to a major report by the UN which described the impacts of global warming as "severe, pervasive and irreversible" One example of an adaptation strategy would be the construction of sea walls to protect against flooding.

Global Impacts Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere passes a landmark value
posted by on Friday, May 10, 2013 - 09:25 PM

gfoat writes "The concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) gas in the Earth's atmosphere passed 400ppm (parts per million) according to the Mauna Lao Observatory in Hawaii in the Pacific Ocean, where researchers have been recording levels of CO2 in the atmosphere. see the full details."

gfoat writes "There are vast quantities of the powerful greenhouse gas methane frozen under shallow seas which are beginning to be released into the atmosphere as the global temperature increases. The temperature in the arctic is rising four or five times faster than the global average."

Global Impacts Europe picks up the pace in the race against climate change
posted by on Tuesday, August 02, 2011 - 10:53 AM

gfoat writes "The Low Energy Alternative Future (LEAF) Index, now in its second year, asked 5,511 respondents across Europe for their views on sustainability and low energy living. The data was then analysed by Imperial College London’s Energy Futures Lab, led by Professor Nigel Brandon, and countries were ranked on their positive attitudes to sustainability issues. As first Sustainability Partner of the London 2012 Games, EDF Energy commissioned the study to gauge attitudes towards energy saving in the year before Britain powers the Olympics. "

Global Impacts How To Solve Climate Change!
posted by on Wednesday, December 12, 2007 - 09:20 PM

gfoat writes "The global community continues to generate dangerous rates of global climate change faster than it acts to avoid them. The international challenge is to reverse this. Contraction and Convergence (C&C) makes this possible. The “United Nations Framework Convention of Climate Change” (UNFCCC) has the objective of safe and stable greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere based on the principles of precaution and equity. “Contraction and Convergence” (C&C) is the rights-based, global climate-policy framework, proposed to the United Nations since 1990 by the Global Commons Institute (GCI) to achieve that objective. “C&C” enables greenhouse gas scenarios for safe climate to be calculated and universally shared by negotiation, enabling policies and measures to be organised internationally at rates that avoid dangerous global climate change.

Global Impacts Global stand-off on emissions control can be resolved.
posted by on Wednesday, June 27, 2007 - 02:00 PM

gfoat writes "Providing the biggest polluters cooperate, a new global agreement on much deeper cuts is not just possible but likely. Time, however, is desperately short. The best evidence suggests that, if dangerous climate change is to be avoided, worldwide emissions must start to fall within a decade, which would involve making a deal in the next year or two. Over the longer term, the best and fairest solution -dubbed "contraction and convergence" - would entitle everyone on the planet to the same share of a safe level of emissions and would apportion them to each country appropriately. HSBC on C&C in today's UK Independent Newspaper ask if the global stand-off on emissions control can be resolved. "

Global Impacts UK: HRH The Prince Of Wales Visits Woking
posted by on Friday, March 23, 2007 - 01:44 PM

gfoat writes "The Prince of Wales today (23rd March 07) visited Woking, a leading Council for sustainable energy. The Prince walked around the streets meeting people and asked what they thought of the innovative energy projects in their town. This was a serious effort by Prince Charles to engage the public in a low carbon economy. The Prince of Wales said in his introductory remarks to Al Gore’s film An Inconvenient Truth that it is very important that we stop and think about the implications of this film and take the appropriate action. Gordon Foat of Future Energies, the spokesman on energy issues for the Local Agenda 21, had a few informal words with the Prince, congratulating him on his presentation and the Prince responded with his thanks.

Global Impacts The Dead Zones : Could this be the Warning ?
posted by on Sunday, February 18, 2007 - 04:53 PM

gfoat writes "All EU nations must back proposals to cut harmful emissions by 30% by 2020 or risk more changes to our global environment caused by C02 emissions from burning fossil fuels. Just recently it was reported that sea conditions appear to be causing wide-spread loss of marine life. Oceanic plankton have largely disappeared from the waters off Northern California, Oregon and Washington, mystifying scientists. A recent study indicated the phenomenon may be long term, and linked to global warming. If the world wants to avoid the dangerous impacts of climate change then the EU must stand up and lead the debate. Without such commitment, the global agreement we all need, will slide further away, and the window of opportunity is closing rapidly for the entire planet. The proposals will be discussed by the Environment Council in Brussels on Tuesday, before being considered for adoption by EU leaders at an energy summit in March."

Global Impacts IPCC Projections, The facts about Climate Change!
posted by on Monday, February 05, 2007 - 09:04 AM

gfoat writes "The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said temperatures were probably going to increase by 1.8-4C (3.2-7.2F) by the end of the century. The report was intended to be the definitive summary of climatic shifts facing the world in the coming years. It was concluded that it was at least 90% certain that human emissions of greenhouse gases rather than natural variations are warming the planet's surface. They projected that temperatures would probably rise by between 1.8C and 4C, though increases as small as 1.1C (2F) or as large as 6.4C (11.5F) were possible. Achim Steiner, executive director of the United Nations Environment Programme (Unep), said the findings marked a "historical landmark" in the debate about whether humans were affecting the state of the atmosphere. See the IPCC Summary video."

Global Impacts Royal Society tells Exxon: Stop funding climate change denial !
posted by on Wednesday, September 20, 2006 - 01:36 PM

gfoat writes "Britain's leading scientists have challenged the US oil company ExxonMobil to stop funding groups that attempt to undermine the scientific consensus on climate change. In unprecedented steps, the Royal Society, Britain's scientific academy, has written to the oil giant to demand that the company withdraws support for dozens of groups that have "misrepresented the science of climate change. The scientists also strongly criticise the company's public statements on global warming, which they describe as inaccurate and misleading. This is the first time the society has written to a company to challenge its activities. Read the full article by Guardian Unlimited"
