Alaska’s On Fire And It May Make Climate Change Even Worse - (July 8, 2015 - by Sarah Zhang - Wired) - …hundreds of wildfires burning in Alaska and Canada.

The problem isn’t just scorched landscape—though that’s bad enough, to the tune of 3 million acres and 600 fires in Alaska and over 4,000 wildfires in Canada. ….  ….  But the real problem is that the fires could accelerate the melting of permafrost, a layer of ground that’s never supposed to get above freezing. And permafrost is one of Earth’s great storehouses of carbon. Release it, and you speed up climate change.

What ties all that together is “duff,” the thick layer of moss, twigs, needles, and other living or once-living material that blankets the forest floor. Duff can be up to a foot thick, and it provides the insulation that keeps permafrost cold through even the sunny days of summer. But when fire comes along, duff becomes fuel. Burning duff releases carbon too, of course, but losing it is like ripping the insulation out of a refrigerator.

[….]

Losing permafrost wouldn’t just affect Alaskans and Canadians, though. All the permafrost in the world currently stores an estimated 1.4 trillion tons of carbon, twice the amount in the atmosphere. What happens if all that carbon gets released?  -  http://tinyurl.com/o8r9pnd

New Challenges To Recycling In The United States






Sea Levels Could Rise At Least 20 Feet - (July 10, 2015 - by Brian Kahn - Climate Central) - Even if world manages to limit global warming to 2°Cthe target number for current climate negotiationssea levels may still rise at least 6 meters (20 feet) above their current heights, radically reshaping the world’s coastline and affecting millions in the process.

That finding comes from a new paper published on Thursday in Science that shows how high sea levels rose the last time carbon dioxide levels were this high.

[….]

The study examined past changes and laid out a framework for using them to refine our understanding of what the future holds for coastal communities. According to separate research by Climate Central, a 20-foot sea level rise would reshape the U.S. coast, causing Louisiana to lose its boot and transforming the Bay Area into the Bays Area by forming a second inland bay. It would also threaten the world's coastal nations and megacities.

[….]

The big outstanding question — and the one that’s most relevant to people living along the coasts — is just how long it could take sea levels to rise to such great heights. The process isn’t linear. It’s currently accelerating and that trend is expected to continue. [Andrea] Dutton [a geochemist at the University of Florida and one of the study’s co-authors] said her group is working on new techniques to better define the rates of rise, but other efforts have shown tipping points could cause sudden, rapid rises faster than previous estimates.

“There are some recent modeling efforts that now show you could get a section of the Antarctic ice sheet, several meters worth of sea level rise, to go in a decade. We used to think it was centuries,” she said.  -  http://tinyurl.com/nbpt8zf

Hillary Clinton's New Video On Climate Change






Say Goodbye to Coastlines: New Study Warns of Disastrous Sea Level Rise Within Decades - (July 28, 2015 - By James Hansen / Huffington Post) - A new study finds that an increase of 2 degrees Celsius, rather than being a safe "guardrail" against the worst climate change effects, is actually extremely dangerous.

[....]

My conclusion, based on the total information available, is that continued high emissions would result in multi-meter sea level rise this century and lock in continued ice sheet disintegration such that building cities or rebuilding cities on coast lines would become foolish.

[....]

A startling conclusion of our paper is that effects of freshwater release onto the Southern Ocean and North Atlantic are already underway....

Here, I expand on our conclusion that the science indicates 2°C is not a safe target. Indeed, 2°C is not only a wrong target, temperature is a flawed metric due to meltwater effect on temperature. Sea level, a critical metric for humanity, is at least on the same plane. Earth's energy imbalance is a critical metric, because energy balance must be restored to stabilize climate, which thus informs us about the required limit on greenhouse gases (GHGs). The Framework Convention on Climate Change, agreed upon at Rio in 1992, defines GHGs as the critical metric, saying that GHGs must be stabilized at a level that avoids "dangerous anthropogenic interference" with climate. Why have policymakers turned away from GHG amount to temperature as the metric with a value (2°C) seemingly pulled from a hat? Could it be because 2°C allows politicians to set emission targets to be achieved in the future when they will be out of office? If we stick to the Framework Convention's GHG metric, we find that the CO2 stabilization level is not 450 ppm or 400 ppm, it is 350 ppm and possibly lower with immediate implications for policy.

The bottom line message scientists should deliver to policymakers is that we have a global crisis, an emergency that calls for global cooperation to reduce emissions as rapidly as practical. We conclude elsewhere and reaffirm in our present paper that the crisis calls for an across-the-board rising carbon fee and international technical cooperation in carbon-free technologies.  -  http://tinyurl.com/qe2q6rs

Washington D.C. Is (Literally!) Sinking





Did You Know?: Nearly 1 Million Plastic Bags Are Used Every Minute - (Summer 2015 - Missouri Resources Magazine / MO DNR) - Today, approximately ninety percent of grocery and shopping bags are made of plastic. We see them everywhere. We use them to carry our lunch to work, line our bathroom trash cans, and observe them fluttering from tree branches or blowing down the street with a gust of wind. According to 2012 EPA estimates, Americans generate approximately 3.8 million tons of plastic bag, sack and wrap waste annually, of which only 440,000 tons is collected for recycling. Many bags end up as litter and are destined to become among the most common form of ocean refuse, next to cigarette butts. Plastic bags that are not properly disposed of or recycled can find their way into streams and waterways and eventually end up in the ocean, where they can take up to 1,000 years to break down.

Many municipal recycling programs don’t accept plastic bags in their combined recycling bins. The bags are difficult to sort and can become tangled in machinery. To properly recycle plastic bags, save and return them to the specialized recycling bins found in many of the stores that provide bags for customers. Many avoid plastic bags entirely and, instead, bring their own reusable bags. You might be thinking, “What about paper bags?” While paper bags are easier to dispose of or recycle, they also use 40 percent more energy to make and produce more hazardous emissions and water waste during manufacturing.

In the end, it’s about consumption. Reducing our dependence on plastic and paper bags reduces their impact on our environment.  -  http://dnr.mo.gov/magazine/docs/mr-summer-15.pdf

Tampa, Florida May Be Due For Extreme "Grey Swan" Hurricanes - (August 31, 2015 - by Katie Nodjimbadem - Smithsonian) - A new model combines historical data and physical modeling to find the risks of catastrophic storms in unexpected places

[….]

...according to a new model, climate change may cause an increase in less predictable “grey swan” tropical storms around the world. If it bears out, the model suggests that Tampa, Florida; Cairns, Australia and the Persian Gulf are all at risk of highly damaging hurricanes sometime in the next century.

Statistically speaking, a black swan is an event, like a storm, that comes as a total surprise. By contrast, grey swan storms are harder to see coming based on historical information alone, but they could potentially be predicted using a combination of historical records and knowledge of an area's changing physical conditions, from the local climate to rising sea level.

[....]

[The] model predicts that Tampa could experience hurricane storm surges of about 20 feet today and 36 feet by the end of the century. Because Tampa has not experienced a major tropical storm since 1921, people may have forgotten that the city is vulnerable to such extremes....  -  http://tinyurl.com/ou47td6

Jail The Climate Deniers! - (8-1/2 min. - YouTube audio/video) - (Sept. 19, 2015 - Thom Hartmann / The Big Picture RT) - Another day, another warning sign that climate change could soon spin rapidly out of control. According to a new study out of Lund University in Sweden - the melting of arctic sea ice - which is now happening at an alarmingly fast rate - is increasing the release of methane into the atmosphere. So why is this such a big deal? Easy - Methane is one of the strongest of the natural greenhouse gases. It’s about 80 times more potent than CO2 - and while it may not get as much attention as its cousin CO2 - it certainly can do as much - if not more - damage to our planet. As my recent documentary "Last Hours" pointed out - a massive release of methane could produce a sudden global warming event that could lead to an extinction of species on a wide scale - including humans.  -  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SFZNii3K5xg

Anxiety rises near Bridgeton Landfill as emergency plans disclosed - (Oct. 6, 2015 - by Jacob Barker - St. Louis Post-Dispatch) - As anxiety grows in neighborhoods near the Bridgeton Landfill, newly released emergency plans may be of little comfort.

Some say concern among residents and area officials has heightened since Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster released reports last month that said an underground fire at the landfill was moving toward radioactive waste in the adjacent West Lake Landfill.

Koster’s office also said some radioactive contamination was outside West Lake, a Superfund site overseen by the Environmental Protection Agency.  ….

[….]

First reported by KMOX (1120 AM), the county’s emergency plan says if the fire reaches contaminated areas of West Lake, there is a potential for radioactive fallout to be released in the smoke plume and spread throughout the region.

The cities of Bridgeton, Hazelwood, Maryland Heights, Champ and St. Charles would bedirectly affected,” the plan says. It details an evacuation plan, communication and other responses.  -  http://tinyurl.com/npyfan8

CDC Investigating Possible Cancer Cluster Near St. Louis - (October 20, 2015 - by Vinita Nair / CBS News) - NORTH ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. -- An unusual number of rare cancers has the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention investigating a community outside St. Louis, Missouri.

[….]

The group put together a map showing more than 2,700 instances of cancers, auto-immune disorders and brain and thyroid tumors.

The area where they lived is called North County, which includes Hazelwood and Florrisant. Coldwater Creek runs thru the towns.

For decades, two sites near the creek were used to store radioactive waste from America's nuclear weapons program.

The waste came from St. Louis's Mallinckrodt Chemical Company, which the government hired to process uranium.

Tens of thousands of barrels of nuclear waste, many open to the elements, contaminated the soil at the sites and the nearby creek.  -  http://tinyurl.com/pprjk9c

Smarter Copyright Laws Could Stop The Next VW Scandal - (Oct.  27, 2015 - by Kyle Wiens - Wired) - The trusted car company duped regulatory bodies around the world with just a few lines of code buried in the programming.

[….]

The VW scandal isn’t a freak event, it’s the new normal. And it will remain that way until America’s overzealous copyright laws stop trampling research and innovation.

It doesn’t surprise me that the German automaker was able to pull off a massive scam, right under the nose of a powerful US regulatory organization. There’s a law banning you from looking for the kind of crap VW was pulling: the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, or DMCA.

Section 1201 of the DMCA makes it illegal to circumvent digital locks like the carrier lock on your phone or the password controlling access to the diagnostic system of your vehicle. The 1998 law was intended to stop people from breaking encryption over CDs and DVDs. But Section 1201 isn’t platform-specific. It applies to all programming with a lock on it.

The law enacted to stop piracy wound up giving manufacturers veto power over tinkering with code. You can’t even look at it without the manufacturer’s permission. How do you uncover corporate malfeasance when you’re legally mandated to wear blinders?

[….]

Any time someone puts a lock on something that belongs to you, and won’t give you a key, they’re not doing it for your benefit,” says copyright expert Cory Doctorow.

[….]

After nearly two decades under the DMCA, it’s clear that our copyright laws are out of control, that they restrict research rather than promote innovation. Something needs to change. Section 1201 is undemocratic. It’s anti-consumer. And it hands control of our things to corporate entities whose motivations may not be aligned with the public’s interest.  -  http://tinyurl.com/olt7bxd

Bill Gates: The Private Sector Is Inept - (October 27, 2015 - by Janet Allon - AlterNet) - Bill Gates, still the world's richest man after all these years, does not have a lot of faith in his fellow billionaires or even capitalism when it comes to doing the right thing. It turns out he thinks the private sector is too selfish and inept to tackle the dire climate change situation, and relying on it would be courting disaster. Better to take a quasi socialist approach and remove the profit motive altogether from this important work.

In a wide-ranging interview with The Atlantic recently, Gates tacked pretty hard to the left. "There's no fortune to be made," he said, when it comes to developing clean energy sources and mitigating climate change. Besides, he pointed out, "the private sector is in general inept. How many companies do venture capitalists invest in that go poorly? By far most of them.” 

Since World War II, U.S.-government R&D has defined the state of the art in almost every area,” Gates told the Atlantic. “When I first got into this I thought, ‘How well does the Department of Energy spend its R&D budget?’ And I was worried: ‘Gosh, if I’m going to be saying it should double its budget, if it turns out it’s not very well spent, how am I going to feel about that? But as I’ve really dug into it, the DARPA money is very well spent, and the basic-science money is very well spent. The government has these ‘Centers of Excellence.’ They should have twice as many of those things, and those things should get about four times as much money as they do.  -  http://tinyurl.com/ppmypng

Can Sylvia Earle Save The Oceans? - (Nov. 12, 2015 - by Ian Frazier - Outside Magazine) - The marine biologist has done things in the ocean that would scare most people senseless. She's been alone in total darkness thousands of feet down, hovered under a Russian ship as it pinged her submarine, and been charged by huge sharks. But one thing does frighten her: the dire state of our overfished and polluted seas, something she spends every waking hour trying to change.

Almost the first thing Sylvia Earle said to me was, “The oceans are dying.

….  As the world’s best-known oceanographer—Sylvia is to our era what Jacques Cousteau was to an earlier one—she feels a heavy responsibility. In her lifetime, she has seen the ocean damaged in ways humans never thought it could be. The ongoing disaster leaves her mournful, desolate, and sometimes scary to talk to.  ….

Every day more signs appear that seem to prove her dire predictions right. She sees portents of human beings’ alteration of the oceans visible to no one else. Our leavings are now everywhere: she knows that off California, about 10,500 feet down, a solitary white plastic patio chair sits on the bottom as if its occupant had just gotten up to turn the steaks. She watches sea life being destroyed from every direction, between over-fishing and pollution and rising temperatures, with the ocean’s chemistry going to hell and reef paradises that she used to love now dead and rotting. As Pope Francis noted in his recent encyclical on climate change, “Coral reefs comparable to the great forests on dry land … are already barren or in a state of constant decline.” Sylvia began warning about that nightmare decades ago.

[….]

….  Today, garbage patches the size of small countries rotate in the centers of various oceans. A study of ocean trash in 2009 found that cigarette butts were the most common debris, with plastic bags second. Of unknown danger are the much smaller pieces of plastic that infuse the seas and probably will forever. Marine animals ingest plastic fragments and die. Lost or discarded nylon fishing nets and monofilament longlines drift endlessly, catching and killing hundreds of thousands more every year. According to another study, a detritus-filled part of the Pacific holds six pounds of floating trash for every pound of natural plankton.

…. Excess CO2 in the atmosphere leads to ocean acidification, which is already destroying the shells of sea snails and other tiny creatures near the base of the ocean’s food chain. …. Perhaps 70 percent of the oxygen on the planet comes from photosynthesis taking place in organisms in or near the few sunlight-rich feet of water at the ocean’s surface. The ocean supplies about two of every three breaths we take. What climate change will do to that oxygen production is ominous and uncertain.  -  http://tinyurl.com/qdpgx72

Low-oxygen 'dead zones' in North Pacific linked to past ocean-warming events - (November 18, 2015 - Oregon State University - ScienceDaily) - A new study has found a link between abrupt ocean warming at the end of the last ice age and the sudden onset of low-oxygen, or hypoxic conditions that led to vast marine dead zones.

Large-scale warming events about 14,700 and again 11,500 years ago occurred rapidly and triggered loss of oxygen in the North Pacific, raising concern that low-oxygen areas will expand again as the ocean warms in the future. Anomalous warmth occurring recently in the Northeastern Pacific Ocean and the Bering Sea -- dubbed "The Blob" -- is of a scale similar to the events documented in the geologic record, the researchers say. If such warming is sustained, oxygen loss becomes more likely.

[….]

the new study found a clear connection between two prehistoric intervals of abrupt ocean warming that ended the last ice age with an increase in the flux of marine plankton sinking to the seafloor, ultimately leading to a sudden onset of low-oxygen conditions, or hypoxia.

[….]

"During each warming event, the transition to hypoxia occurred abruptly and persisted for about 1,000 years, suggesting a feedback that sustained or amplified hypoxia." [lead author Summer] Praetorius added.  -  http://tinyurl.com/ol3yvct

As we continue looking at aging operating atomic reactors around the world, it is important to understand this issue and know what may go wrong at other sites.

Listen as Fairewinds’ Chief Engineer Arnie Gundersen explains why TEPCO’s workers injected saltwater into Fukushima’s failing reactors, what happens when salt water meets steel, and what forces come into play after saltwater is used to cool down an atomic reactor.  -  http://www.fairewinds.org/nuclear-energy-education//salt-in-the-wound

You Can Actually Hear The Climate Changing - (Dec. 7, 2015 - by Leath Tonino - Outside Magazine) - Bernie Krause’s vast library of field recordings reveals a sad truth: wild sounds are quickly vanishing

Krause’s archive now consists of 5,000-plus hours of what he calls “whole habitat” field recordings. To get them, he sets up a wind-protected microphone on a tripod, plugs it into a handheld recorder, and captures everything that occurs. More than half of the 3,700 habitats represented in the archivefrom Yellowstone to Australia to his own backyard in Glen Ellen, Californiaare now either totally silent or severely diminished because of human activities like mining, logging, poaching, real estate development, airplane traffic, warfare, and climate change.

More U.S. Troops Killed By Halliburton Than By Iraqis! - (February 23, 2016 - by David Swanson - American Herald Tribune) - The U.S. government, from Dick Cheney to Hillary Clinton, told blatant lies about the Iraqi government creating chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons in 2002, despite having been informed of the fact that Iraq was doing no such thing. U.S. leaders lied about ties between Iraq and terrorists that they also knew did not exist.

Then the U.S. military attacked and invaded Iraq, in the process heavily bombing old sites of Iraqi chemical weapons from the 1980s, many of those weapons having been provided by the United States. In large part because of the U.S. origin of the old Iraqi chemical weapons, the U.S. kept quiet about them during the new war. Another reason for the official silence was that, during the 2003 U.S. destruction of Iraq, many of those old weapons were seized by fledgling terrorist groups. The war had done exactly what it had been justified as being needed to prevent; it had given WMDs to terrorists.

The geniuses running the U.S. military set up U.S. bases at the sites of old chemical weapons piles, dug giant burn pits into the ground, and began burning the military's trash -- monumental quantities of trash, something like The Story of Stuff on steroids. They burned hundreds of tons of trash every day, including everything you can think of: oil, rubber, tires, treated wood, medicines, pesticides, asbestos, plastic, explosives, paint, human body parts, and . . . (wait for it) . . . nuclear, biological, and chemical decontamination materials.

The burn pits poisoned Iraq, together with depleted uranium weapons, napalm, white phosphorous, and various other horrors, creating unprecedented epidemics of birth defects, and killing untold masses of Iraqis. The burn pits also poisoned tens of thousands of U.S. troops, many of whom have died as a result, including very likely the son of the current U.S. vice president. The burn pits profited Halliburton, the company of the previous U.S. vice president [Dick Cheney].

The burn pits were no secret, although bases sometimes stopped the burning during VIP tours. Typically, huge clouds of smoke filled the air and created immediate breathing difficulties and sicknesses. Soldiers knew which colors of smoke were most dangerous and discussed it as they discussed an enemy. Numerous burn pits turned hundreds of previously healthy U.S. troops into invalids. But the burn pits at six particular bases caused the most severe illnesses and the most deaths. They caused, among other things, numerous cases of constrictive bronchiolitis, which could only have resulted from exposure to mustard gas -- a chemical weapon left over from a program the United States had supported when it existed and used as an excuse for war when it didn't.  -  http://tinyurl.com/hns5jaf





Wireless Wake-Up Call - (16-3/4 min. - YouTube audio/video) - (Feb 18, 2016 - Jeromy Johnson - TEDx Talks) - A Silicon-valley engineer turned technology health advocate, Jeromy Johnson discusses our attachment to technology and the health hazards such an addiction may hold.

Jeromy Johnson is an expert in mitigating the negative impacts of Electromagnetic Field (EMF) exposure. He has a leading website on the topic and consults with individuals, families and organizations around the world to implement solutions that reduce and eliminate EMF pollution. Jeromy has an advanced degree in Civil Engineering and has worked in Silicon Valley for 15 years. After becoming what medical doctors call “Electro-hypersensitive” (EHS) in 2011 after extensive exposure to EMF radiation, he embarked on a journey of regaining his own health and educating others to critically evaluate theirs.  -  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F0NEaPTu9oI

….  Already, a handful of small cities—Burlington, Vermont; Aspen, Colorado; and Greensburg, Kansasget all their electricity from renewable energy. Another 12 communities—from Grand Rapids, Michigan, to Georgetown, Texas—have pledged to do so. Earlier this year, the Sierra Club launched its Ready for 100 campaign, which aims to enlist more cities to make a 100 percent clean energy commitment.

So far, the biggest city to set a 100 percent clean energy goal is San Diego. The move by the country's eighth most populous city is precedent setting. For starters, its climate action plan is legally binding, not just a vaguely worded proclamation.  -  http://tinyurl.com/zwwv5of
