Warming Up: Thinking about Nature and Economics - And ACTING.

Climate Change and its Disastrous Impacts on Earth and Humanity: Reclaiming Our Memories: how can we face a future of climate change if we have forgotten our past?
Climate change along with the disastrous effects it will have on the earth and humanity is being ignored by much of society. I differentiate between the earth and humanity because many people only relate to the problems that humans might suffer, not fully understanding that what damages the earth also damages us. During the 1992 UN Earth Summit in Rio, media headlines were screaming “We’ve only got 20 years to save the earth!” An environmentalist dryly pointed out, “No. The earth will survive. We have 20 years to save humanity.”

The troubling evolution of corporate greenwashing
The term “greenwashing” was coined in the 1980s to describe outrageous corporate environmental claims. Three decades later, the practice has grown vastly more sophisticated

The Climate Crisis and Imperialism
The outcome of the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference, which concluded over the weekend in Paris, has been hailed almost universally by politicians and the press as a triumph of international collaboration that will pull mankind back from the brink of ecological disaster.

Read about these important topics: The global water crisis; Nestle-creep; the plight of sovereign Native Americans; The Climate and Imperialism; Who Owns the Earth?; Seeds of Change: The hope of a GOOD 'Anthropocene', and moreCollapse )

Welcome to NOW: "Earth's health is 'grim'," say scientists.

Climate Change is Here and Now, NOAA Report Warns

by Nadia Prupis, staff writer - Tuesday, August 02, 2016 - Common Dreams - See graphics!

Environmental records of all kinds are being shattered as climate change takes effect in real time...

Greenhouse gases highest on record.
Global surface temperature highest on record.
Sea surface temperatures highest on record.
Global upper ocean heat content highest on record.
Global sea level highest on record.
Extremes were observed in the water cycle and precipitation.

Scorching Global Temps Astound Climate Scientists
As wildfire rages in California, flooding affects millions in India and China, and eggs are fried on sidewalks in Iraq, global climate catastrophe is surpassing predictions...

"What concerns me most is that we didn't anticipate these temperature jumps," David Carlson, director of the World Meteorological Organization's (WMO) climate research program, told Thompson Reuters Foundation late Monday. "We predicted moderate warmth for 2016, but nothing like the temperature rises we've seen."

Some really interesting and terrible stuff under the cut...Collapse )
