Andrew Behar on Exxon Mobil and Climate Change


Climate One

Published on Jul 10, 2014

Exxon Mobil made headlines in early 2014 for saying, “We are confident that none of our hydrocarbon reserves are now or ever will become stranded.” According to Andrew Behar, CEO of As You Sow, “What’s interesting is that that statement came out the same day as the IPCC5 report came out. They came out, like, basically within an hour of each other. And the reason that Exxon said that they don’t see any risks, is because they said, ‘We must uplift the poor and the impoverished and the vulnerable of the world through burning our fossil fuels.'”

Speakers:
Andy Behar, CEO, As You Sow
Lisa Goldberg, Director of Research, Aperio Group; former Director of Research, MSCI
Josh Schein, CEO, Global Key Advisors

Lisa Goldberg on the Carbon Bubble


Climate One

Published on Jul 10, 2014

“We had a housing bubble that I think we all remember in 2008 burst, and there’s concern that assets can be pouring into carbon-rich assets, and these assets could lose their value unexpectedly and suddenly, and investors will be at a loss,” says Lisa Goldberg, Director of Research at Aperio Group. “This is now becoming more and more mainstream in financial conversations and it’s a concern on the mind of some investors.”

Climate Impacts on Agriculture


Climate One

Published on Jul 10, 2014

“One of the advantages that we have in studying impacts on agriculture is that a lot of people have been paying really close attention to how climate affects agriculture for a long time,” said Noah Diffenbaugh, Associate Earth Sciences Professor at Stanford University. Some crops, such as corn and grapes, are very sensitive to severe heat, and the likelihood of severe heat has already increased in many parts of the world.

Climate Change, Fukushima and Exponential Growth – Michael Ruppert

Published on Apr 13, 2014

CO2 and Methane Hidrates in Climate Change + Fukushima Radiation and Nuclear Power in General + Overpopulation through Exponential Growth = Human Extinction.
3 planetary issues to which the governmental establishments are sticking their heads in the sand, while not sharing all the relevant information through the corporative media, as the solutions for these problems don’t give profit. They actually could collapse the fake economy faster. One thing these issues can result at, and according to Michael Ruppert inevitably, is human extinction.

Runaway Global Warming and Human Extinction Announced by Scientists

Published on Apr 19, 2014

Guy McPherson takes the guts to speak openly to the world about the latest data on climate change and its consequences. Very bad news indeed. According to John Davis and the Arctic Methane Emergency Group, we’ve triggered runaway global warming and human extinction, as well as for many other species, seems certain. We might be extinct by 2040 if we don’t collapse civilization as we know it, now!

Humanity needs, now more than ever, to connect globally around other values than money. What about love, fulfilling human needs of hunger and housing to everyone, quit the stupid wars, corruption and all other sufferance driven by profit.
