Bali climate conference ends in farce as US vetoes emission targets

17-12-2007 05:50

The UN-sponsored climate change conference held on the Indonesian island of Bali ended on the weekend without any agreement on combatting global warming other than vague generalities. A last-minute, face-saving communiqué was issued but, at the insistence of the Bush administration and its allies, it made no mention of specific carbon emission reduction targets. The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) had recommended a cut in carbon emissions of 25 to 40 percent in the advanced industrial countries by 2020 and a total world emissions reduction of 50 percent by 2050.

Beyond The Point Of No Return -- It's Too Late To Stop Climate Change

14-12-2007 20:36

As the pace of global warming kicks into overdrive, the hollow optimism of climate activists, along with the desperate responses of some of the world's most prominent climate scientists, is preventing us from focusing on the survival requirements of the human enterprise.

The environmental establishment continues to peddle the notion that we can solve the climate problem.

We can't.

We have failed to meet nature's deadline. In the next few years, this world will experience progressively more ominous and destabilizing changes. These will happen either incrementally -- or in sudden, abrupt jumps.

Under either scenario, it seems inevitable that we will soon be confronted by water shortages, crop failures, increasing damages from extreme weather events, collapsing infrastructures, and, potentially, breakdowns in the democratic process itself.

Come to Tasmania! (Rainforest Protection)

10-12-2007 08:04

Untouched rainforest, 'old-growth' is being logged for paper, woodchips and profits at an alarming rate. Trees turn carbon into oxygen, rainforests are perhaps our greatest ally against global warming and considered by scientists and ecologists alike to be Planet Earth's 'lungs'. In Tasmania you have
people turning the most beautiful land into a temporary desert for profit, ignoring public opinion, changing laws to suit themselves and a line drawn in the sand.

James Arbuthnot is the Tory chairman of the all-party Commons defence committee. As a government minister he helped conceal the facts when there were allegations of major fraud on UK arms contracts.

90% Emissions Reductions by 2030? Easy!

08-12-2007 11:18

I was in the middle of writing an article and, you know how things are, you get stuck on an idea and try a different way of looking at things. In this case I wanted to show how moving our electricity consumption to the night time could reduce the overall generating capacity needed, but I also needed to say this in the context of the startling, but real need to reduce Western greenhouse gas emissions by 90% (at least) by 2030.

NIE Report: Inventing Facts

05-12-2007 11:45

Many have been quick to characterize yesterday’s National Intelligence Estimate report [1] on Iran’s nuclear program as a long overdue “Honest Intel” [2] that will suck the air out of warmongers’ sails because it clearly states “with high confidence that in fall of 2003, Tehran halted its nuclear weapons program”.
