Will you stand up against climate disaster
Michael Le Page, features editor
"I did not want my grandchildren, someday in the future, to look back and say, 'Opa understood what was happening but did not make it clear'."
So Opa, otherwise known as renowned climate researcher James Hansen,Air Max 90 is telling it as he sees it, and the result is the most frightening book I have ever read, for three reasons.
First, Hansen has come to believe, based on studies of past climate change, that the threat facing us is far worse than he thought even a few years ago. The very survival of life on Earth is at stake, he says. The sun is 2 per cent brighter than it was just 250 million years ago, and if we burn up all the fossil fuel on the planet all the oil, coal, tar sand and tar shale we will trigger a runaway greenhouse effect that will ultimately lead to the oceans boiling away, he claims.
This won't happen in our lifetimes, but if we don't curb our emissions now it will become harder and harder to avert the total extinction of life. Which brings us to the second reason: Hansen thinks nothing meaningful is being done to limit emissions.
"Your governments are lying through their teeth," he says.Nike Air Max 95 He believes the Kyoto protocol is a dismal failure, and its proposed successors, along with the capandtrade schemes favoured by President Barack Obama, have no chance of achieving what is needed either. "Unfortunately, nature and the laws of physics cannot compromise they are what they are," he points out.
It gets worse. Decades of experience with US governments have led Hansen to believe that the political systems in the US and many other democracies are incapable of delivering effective action, because politicians serve the shortterm interests of special interest groups with plenty of money to throw around like the fossilfuel industry rather than the longterm welfare of citizens.
Extraordinarily, Hansen thinks civil resistance is now the only way forward. "It is up to you," he concludes the third reason his book is so terrifying.
We'd better hope Hansen is wrong, but his track record is second to none. Nike Air Max 2011 Earlier this decade, for instance, he was the one who stuck his neck out and said official predictions of only a modest rise in sea level this century were wrong, that ice caps would respond far more quickly to warming. It is now clear that he was right: the ice caps are already shrinking faster than other scientists thought, or were brave enough to say.
This is not the bestwritten science book ever, nor the easiest to understand. But it could be the most important one you'll ever read. It's not too late to avert disaster, Hansen says, but we need to change tack fast.
Storms of My Grandchildren : The truth about the coming climate catastrophe and our last chance to save humanity by James Nike Air Max 1 HansenFirst, we need to establish the nature and dynamics of climate change note how we have moved from global warming to climate change given the former has become increasingly unsustainable.
What we need to address is the globally organised corporate financial racket directed at generating the must gargantuan market in carbon trading on the pretext of climate change and global warming.
Any scientist who declares AGW as certainty on the basis of nominal changes in the volume of a atmospheric trace gas,Nike Air Max 1 is without doubt unworthy of the title This is paid for advertisement brought to us all courtesy of the racketeers and gangsters who engineered the defacto collapse of the global economy and surely qualifies as the greatest 'Story' ever told.
So, the real danger is that we won't be able to stop the Earth from heating up to the point where "all" life will go extinct, due to the greenhouse effect. The greenhouse effect, as I understand it, depends on light from the sun to heat up the Earth when it can't escape back into space like it normaly would.
Plans have existed for quite a while that would cool the Earth rather quickly simply by putting reflective particles into the atmosphere. Nike Air Max 2011 With less light coming in, the greenhouse effect will warm the Earth to just the right temperature, instead of boiling it.
If these plans have merit, as I think they do, then worrying that the Earth's biome will actually be destoyed is overstating the danger. The biome will probably change, but not to the point where the ocean boil.
Pretending the situation is more dangerous than it actually is makes for a more compelling message, but it is intellectually dishonest.
1. Massive solar and nuclear are the only ways to power the planet without using fossil fuels. Solar is great for US, China, India, Middle east, Africa, but developed countries away from the equator MUST use at least some nuclear, Nike Air Max 95 despite the waste there is just no choice. There aren't enough renewables to power those countries otherwise.
2. Oil is going to run out anyway, electric cars use 1/3 of the energy and this can come from anything, not just liquid fuel. These are pretty much essential.
3. Cellulosic ethanol is where you put anything that once grew and turn it into fuel. This bio fuel really makes sense, and there is an absolutely vast supply of weeds, switch grass, wood chips, farm waste, anything that grew can be turned into fuel.
4. Suck the CO2 out the air! Build an EXCESS of electricity generation and put it to good use. Air Max 90 This is never talked about, but will be essential if we pass a tipping point. Lets say we get fossil fuel use to almost zero on 60 years but we are just past the tipping point. We won't just watch while the ice all melts, but stop it by quickly taking the CO2 back out the air.
