The report analyzed what countries are doing to cut greenhouse gas emissions, and whether they are enough to limit global average temperature rise to a safer range — below 2 degrees celsius.

Dahr Jamail – Politics of Greed & Rough Ride Ahead

Dahr Jamail is an extremely astute, widely read, and well-regarded journalist who is reporting the extreme urgency of ACD (Anthropogenic Climate Destabilization), a.k.a. climate change. Here’s a ‘sound bite’ from Stuart Scott’s recent conversation with Dahr. It’s a bit unnerving (the unadorned truth often is), so parental discretion is advised.

Can ‘We’ Save ‘Us’ from Our Own Greed and Stupidity?

Here’s an acerbic sound bite with Dr. Peter Wadhams on humanity’s greed and stupidity ranging from SUVs (Stupid Urban Vehicles) to the idiocy of politicians who won’t take the steps to save humanity because they think it will cost too much and they might lose some votes. We are not as clever a species as we think we are. After all, how can we save ourselves if there’s no profit in it? Simply mind-boggling discussion you may want to watch twice. Do share it around the world. And help us translate subtitles this and other videos for other languages.

Sea level rise estimates doubled

Brady Dennis and Chris Mooney from The Washington Post, recently reported on updated sea level rise projections.

Sea levels could rise nearly twice as much as previously predicted by the end of this century if carbon dioxide emissions continue unabated, an outcome that could devastate coastal communities around the globe, according to new research published Wednesday.

The main reason? Antarctica.

Scientists behind a new study published in the journal Nature used sophisticated computer models to decipher a longstanding riddle about how the massive, mostly uninhabited continent surrendered so much ice during previous warm periods on Earth. They found that similar conditions in the future could lead to monumental and irreversible increases in sea levels. If high levels of greenhouse gas emissions continue, they concluded, oceans could rise by close to two meters in total (more than six feet) by the end of the century. The melting of ice on Antarctica alone could cause seas to rise more than 15 meters (49 feet) by 2500.

The startling findings paint a far grimmer picture than current consensus predictions, which have suggested that seas could rise by just under a meter at most by the year 2100. Those estimates relied on the notion that expanding ocean waters and the melting of relatively small glacierswould fuel the majority of sea level rise, rather than the massive ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica.
