We are running on borrowed time, folks. Every country needs to do all it can to lessen their effects on our environment.Every person should do all he or she can to cut their own carbon footprint. To speak out against polluters. To encourage others to take action. If we don’t start now our children and theirs will not enjoy the wonderful things that nature has to offer. The beauty of forests, lakes, rivers,and all the other resourses nature has given us.

“Look, I’m not a scientist so I can’t say one way or the other if the climate is changing, I think the jury is still out on that,” President Koch III expressed as he christened the new impervious dome constructed around the White House in a high security ceremony.

Almost in parallel with Climate Change, the climate of politics and world events seems to be intensified by human events, we see extremes happening more often and more swiftly than in previous years.

We have to be the first to take personal responsibility for our own carbon footprint. And it’s probably not going to be a walk in the park–most other industrialized nations keep energy prices high for a variety of different reasons.

The stakes with stopping carbon dioxide buildup are huge. The value of the un-drilled oil and methane and coal is in the trillions and if you think the oil and gas companies are going to write off those investments without a huge fight, I have a bridge to sell you.

In one of his last interviews, Michael C Ruppert talks about Fukushima as a human extinction event–that the currents of the Pacific and the migratory habits of the fish make it inevitable that life-ending radiation would be spread throughout the world’s oceans.

Wow, this is a headline I didn’t want to read. “If we release a small portion of Arctic Methane, ‘We’re fucked': Climatologist A few weeks ago, I posted here on the case for global warming setting off positive feedback loops that would melt the Arctic. I was especially concerned with […]

AIRS Methane

The most compelling problem with climate collapse/global warming currently being discussed by scientists is that while the progressive climb upward of c02 (or methane) in parts per million seems gradual, there are numerous feedback loops that have been set off by warmer temperatures.

There are many myths about Australia and the people who populate it. Yes, we have the nastiest snakes, spiders, sharks, jellyfish and even birds who will kill you stone dead in seconds, but you normally don’t find them in the suburbs of our main cities, where most of us live.

Yet, there was something magical about that night, maybe the electricity in the air, the astounding lightening strikes, the pounding rain, the roaring wind, or the so, so freshness of the rain cleansed air.

These pictures are random from my “game camera”. I set it in a couple places around my house. I get many critters that show up.

The warming we’ve seen is setting feedback loops that guarantee higher levels of warming. The melting of the Siberian permafrost means thousands of gigatons of methane (more damaging as greenhouse effect than carbon dioxide) released into the atmosphere.

Industrial waste discharges into the Cuyahoga River, 1973.

In June 1969, 45 years ago this month, the Cuyahoga River caught fire. It wasn’t the first time for this industrialized waterway, but on this occasion the fire garnered the attention of the nation, and at a time when environmental degradation was a burning [sic] issue.

What we need today is Electric cars that have batteries that can hold a charge longer and be recharged by a solar array. It needs to be inexpensive to buy so we can get more of them on the road and fewer of the internal combustion engines.

      The film is a truly great mixture of drama, resistance to the forces of politics, the adroit combination comedy, and love story, in a culinary battle for the utmost Michilin Star rating for an established French fine dining enterprise that is a mere 100 feet apart from a brand new (to the village) Indian restaraunt.
