  • Four ways your faith can help you survive and thrive the coming global warming catastrophes.

    We have done many posts on the global warming emergency and how bad it is. We thought it's time to post some realistic yet positive perspectives on this escalating crisis that we all face. 

    Please enjoy these new entries.

    There are many benefits for people of faith as we endure the unavoidable coming global warming catastrophes. Your spiritual faith will help you to endure the hardships and sacrifice as the global warming process escalates until it is finally resolved. There is also a large personal spiritual growth benefit in the evolutionary process itself whenever you overcome significant obstacles and challenges. You grow in both character and in spirit.

    Additionally, helping to re-stabilize our climate will give you a powerful opportunity to live your deepest faith in relation to what many refer to as the Great Mystery of Ultimate Reality (God, Buddha, Allah, etc.) You can also demonstrate that ending global warming and being a good steward for the Earth is fully compatible with your best understanding of the Great Mystery and its intentions to sustain life on the planet (as believed in many faiths). As this happens, you will be demonstrating the power and influence of your faith and the world's religions.

    The best and biggest silver lining here is that when most individuals of faith and most of the great religious groups of this world collectively demand we do what is necessary to slow and less escalating global warming, an unimaginably great moral leverage will be in place to help ensure we are eventually successful.

    Your strong personal faith shared with others will also help demonstrate that humanity is completely capable of lessening, slowing, and eventually resolving the global warming challenge if:

    1. we clearly understand the global warming emergency is currently and what caused it. (Click here for a temporarily free copy of a new ebook on the global warming emergency that will provide the latest research.) 
    2. we are realistic about what is effective and what is not in the time we have left, 
    3. we do the “first-things-first” on critical path actions, 
    4. we cooperate together as a unified and coordinated force.

    Together, faith and spirit communities can help extend the existence, stability, and quality of life for the present generation, as well as for future generations.

    “A thing is right when it tends to preserve the integrity, stability, and beauty of the biotic community. It is wrong when it tends otherwise.”

  • Why the Movie Downsizing Should be Seen by Everyone Who Cares About the Environment?

    Alexander Payne the writer and producer of Downsizing, as well as Matt Damon and the other stars, deserve the highest environmental honors. It is obvious they took a lot of professional risks in making this clever film about the dangers of global warming.

    Every environmentalist and sustainability advocate should see this film! What may be the single greatest truth of this film is that it has cleverly brought one of the 11 key tipping points of global warming to the forefront of the world's consciousness. That tipping point is methane release from the melting permafrost and tundra.

    While this is not the most dangerous of the 11 key global warming tipping points, it is among the most likely that will throw humanity into an extinction cycle within the next 30 to 50 years. (See the new book Climageddon at Amazon for more details about the real dangers of global warming tipping points.)

    In this movie, there are many clever plays on the downsizing of human beings to downsize their consumption and overconsumption or resource overshoot. While it was not an initial box office hit, we believe that over the years this movie will do very well in the streaming services and at other video rental outlets. Downsizing was chosen by the National Board of Review as one of the top ten films of 2017, while Hong Chau a co-star earned a nomination for Best Supporting Actress at the 75th Golden Globe Awards.

    For those of you who want more information on this movie the following is from its Wikipedia page and, it does not give away a very clever ending and telling of the methane tipping point surprise.

    Downsizing is a 2017 American science fiction comedy-drama film directed by Alexander Payne, written by Payne and Jim Taylor and starring Matt Damon, Christoph Waltz, Hong Chau, and Kristen Wiig. It tells the story of a couple who decide to undertake a newly-invented procedure to shrink their bodies so they can start a new life in an experimental community. When the wife refuses the procedure at the last minute, the husband has to reassess his life and choices after befriending an impoverished activist.

    Here is the movie trailer.

  • How to really know If we are making any progress in reducing global warming.

    Would you be surprised to know that we are not making any real progress on reducing the worst current and future consequences of global warming? Here is the proof.

    kc-monthly-0300_hirez.png

    Atmospheric carbon from fossil fuel burning is the main human-caused factor in the escalating global warming emergency we are experiencing now. The current level of carbon in our atmosphere is tracked using what is called the Keeling curve. The Keeling curve measures atmospheric carbon in parts per million (ppm).

    Each year, many measurements are taken at Mauna Loa, Hawaii to determine the parts per million (ppm) of carbon in the atmosphere at that time. At the beginning of the Industrial Revolution around 1880, before we began fossil fuel burning, our atmospheric carbon level was at about 270 ppm. 

    Here is the current Keeling curve graph. Today we are at about carbon 408 ppm.

    kc-monthly-0300_hirez.png
    Keeling Curve Monthly CO2 graph, via Show.earth

    As you can see, we are not reducing global warming causing carbon in spite of all that you have heard in the media about what both individuals  and nations are doing. This exponentially rising carbon is also very bad for limiting the 20 worst consequences of global warming. 

    If the total carbon ppm level in our atmosphere is not going down or carbon’s average ppm level per year is not falling or at the very minimum slowing its steep level of increase (as shown above,)  we are in fact not making any significant progress on resolving the escalating global warming emergency. 

    As you can instantly see in the above graph, not only are we not making any global warming reduction progress, worse yet, we are going in the wrong direction faster and faster!

    This carbon ppm global warming measurement system is so accurate that it bears repeating. No matter what you are being told about global warming reduction progress by the media, governments or climate “authorities,” total atmospheric carbon as well as carbon’s average ppm level increase per year is the most dependable measurement of our real progress and the greatest predictor for current and future global warming consequences.
    In Summary
    There are two key ways you will always be able to tell if we are making honest progress in reducing global warming:

    When you start seeing the above Keeling graph levels dropping from the current carbon ppm level (approximately 408 ppm) back to a reasonably safe carbon 350-325 ppm. 

    When we see our average annual increase in carbon ppm levels (currently at about 3+ ppm per year) begin dropping significantly.

    As you can see we are in deep trouble and we are not making progress In reducing global warming in spite of 30+ years of warnings about what is coming.

  • The Manhattan Institute's Joke of a Wall Street Journal Op-Ed...

     

    A new report by Oren Cass of the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research dismisses predictions of the impacts of a warming world with a simple solution: When climate change turns up the heat, people just need to turn on their air conditioners...

    rom his analysis, “Overheated: How Flawed Analyses Overestimate the Costs of Climate Change,” the Wall Street Journal somehow arrived at the following headline for Cass’s recent op-ed: Doomsday Climate Scenarios Are a Joke.

    It should be noted that Cass is a Harvard-trained lawyer, with a background in political science, not climate science. And his employer, the Manhattan Institute, for years has promoted climate science contrarianism while pushing fossil fuel development. No surprise that the organization is bankrolled by several conservative foundations, including the billionaire Mercer family, major Trump donors and funders of climate denial. 

    Cass’s Wall Street Journal op-ed, which begins with “Debates over climate change are filled with dire estimates of its cost,” was quickly trumpeted by the also Mercer-backed right-wing publication Breitbart News.

    What Cass is peddling with his “just get air conditioners” argument is known as adaptation. The purveyors of this approach admit the climate is changing but say that it is nothing to worry about because humans will just adapt. This argument is much more popular with the extremely wealthy than with the rest of the world’s population.

  • None like it hot - warmer winters worry Arctic scientists...

    A sign in Longyearbyen warning people of polar bears in the Svalbard Archipelago, halfway between Norway and the North Pole, February 25, 2018. THOMSON REUTERS FOUNDATION/Thin Lei Win

     

    The Arctic is warming faster than the rest of the planet - and Longyearbyen is seeing it firsthand...

    LONGYEARBYEN, Norway, March 15 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - On a damp winter's afternoon in February, a bus driver taking visitors to the local airport grumbled that this small Arctic town, halfway between mainland Norway and the North Pole, was the warmest place in the country.

    His comment followed two days of rain and above-freezing temperatures in Longyearbyen, a town of about 2,000 people, even as the mainland was struggling with frigid weather and snow.

    Relatively warm weather inside the Arctic Circle ought to be highly unusual for February; increasingly, that is not the case.

    The Arctic is warming faster than the rest of the planet, something Norway's Svalbard archipelago - where Longyearbyen is located - is seeing firsthand, said Kim Holmen, international director of the state-funded Norwegian Polar Institute (NPI).

    "It has been 86 consecutive months where every month has been above normal (temperatures)," he told the Thomson Reuters Foundation in his office at the University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS).

    "This type of weather was highly unusual," the scientist said, gesturing at the rain lashing his office window.

    "Now we have it every winter and several times a winter."

  • 5 reasons the Arctic’s extremely warm winter should alarm you...

    This polar bear is alarmed. LightRocket via Getty Images

     

    You can see dramatic climate change impacts even in the dead of Arctic winter...

    Cape Morris Jesup in Greenland is just about the northernmost piece of land on planet Earth. It’s located just 400 miles south of the North Pole, on Greenland’s craggy, desolate north shore. This is a place so far north that the sun doesn’t rise for most of the winter months.

    In February, in the dark of winter, Cape Morris Jesup’s weather station recorded nearly 60 hours of temperatures above freezing — a new record. On February 24, the temperature reached a high of 43 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Avalanches can be deadly. Climate change has made them more frequent...

    A sign on a mountain road in the Ladakh region of the Himalayas in India reads: “Because of global warming please beware avalanche can come anytime anywhere.”Allison Joyce/Getty Images

     

    A new study shows that rising temperatures in the Himalayas have led to more avalanches...

    The tallest mountain range in the world — the Himalayas — are part of a region known as the “Third Pole.” These mountains, alongside the Tibetan Plateau and the Hindu Kush Mountains, are home to the largest permanent ice mass outside of the Arctic and Antarctic.

    But unlike the far north and far south, the Third Pole, spanning 5 million square kilometers, has direct impacts on a huge slice of humanity. More than 40 million people live in the Himalayas, and nearly 3 billion people live in the river basins that flow from the ice in the mountains.

    Now that ice is melting faster, with sometimes deadly consequences. In 2014, 16 sherpas were killed in an avalanche on Mount Everest. Another 22 people were killed in avalanches after an earthquake struck the region in 2015.

    We’re seeing deadly avalanches in other parts of the world as well. Already, the National Avalanche Center has counted 16 deaths due to avalanches in the United States this year. Four skiers were killed in an avalanche earlier this month in the French Alps. And a volcanic eruption triggered an avalanche that killed a skier in Japan in January.

    Scientists anticipate that the likelihood of avalanches will increase as average temperatures go up and have previously found that avalanches in North America and Europe are sensitive to rising temperatures.

    But until recently, the Himalayas were a conspicuous blind spot for avalanche activity, according to Juan Antonio Ballesteros-Cánovas, a researcher at the Institute for Environmental Sciences at the University of Geneva in Switzerland.

    “We were looking to see if there were changes in the occurrences of extreme events,” he said. “When we started to have a look, we saw that there was almost no data in this part of the world.”

    In a peer reviewed report this week, Ballesteros-Cánovas filled in some of these blanks and found that warming temperatures are increasing the risk of avalanches in the Himalayas as well.

    These monstrous cascades of snow and ice are yet another a harbinger of the slower, more impactful threat from climate change, and a vivid example of how subtle alterations in the global climate can lead to sudden, severe impacts.

    High elevations are warming faster than the rest of the world

    Some of the biggest shifts stemming from climate change are occurring in what scientists call the cryosphere, the regions of the world where water freezes seasonally, like the ice caps or mountain peaks. The Arctic, for example, is losing ice at its fastest rate in 1,500 years.

    Mountains are also warming, at a rate twice as fast as the global average. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warns that this will lead to more avalanches as the planet warms and is planning a report, due out in 2019, focusing specifically on climate change impacts mountain communities.

    To start figuring out how climate change is affecting the slopes, Ballesteros-Cánovas and his team constructed a record of past avalanches in the Western Himalayas by examining tree ring records. Torrents of snow can knock over, bruise, or injure trees in ways that show up on tree rings. Comparing these anomalies among the tree population allowed the scientists to tease out where and when avalanches occurred.

    They then fed their measurements into a computer model and constructed a record of avalanches in the region going back 150 years. The model showed that the likelihood and the number of avalanches has increased:

    Avalanches are increasing as the climate changes

    The likelihood of avalanches has increased in the Western Himalayas. Red dots indicate years with avalanche activity, and blue dots indicate years without avalanches.

    PNAS

    The dynamic is simple: Warmer temperatures in the winter and the early spring lead to wetter snow, which has less friction, so it slides downhill more readily.

    These results counter the common prediction that rising average temperatures will reduce avalanches because they reduce snowfall. Snowfall is in fact declining over the long term, but “in high mountain regions, the snowfall is not the limiting factor for snow avalanches,” Ballesteros-Cánovas said. “What can be the limiting factor is the temperature.”

    Rising temperatures are pushing the number of avalanches up. But the frequency won’t continue rising forever — after a certain threshold, the number of avalanches is limited by the speed with which snowpack accumulates. And with snowfall declining, accumulation will be slower, eventually capping the number of avalanches possible.

    So look on the bright side: Climate change-driven avalanches will only continue until climate change dries up all the snow. It’s a problem that solves itself. Until the next one.
