Global Commission adds pressure to climate debate

Global Commission adds pressure to climate debate

Posted Wed, 17 Sep 2014 06:10:18 GMT by Dave Armstrong

More on climate change and changing over from fossil fuels? The crunch is indeed coming for all of us. But like those who resisted the idea of global warming itself, will we refuse to get on with the job of adopting new ideas and, more important, dissuading many from polluting so much and failing to change.

Particle and nitrous oxide pollution in your car

Who is aware of their city’s invisible pollution problems and how can the health of urbanites be improved? Too often, we are too late in saving the health of our workers and children. Those who know the truth have probably moved out already.

Ban Ki-moon asks for the earth

Sorry, we're boring the pants off the polluters. But we have to report that yet another approach is being made to solving climate change. The UN will draw together influential organisations and people to finally make a push towards redeeming ourselves, after the failures of Copenhagen and Kyoto. The politics seems impossible, but this is one parley that has to be concluded, and rapidly.

Throughout Eurasia, we have several developments in regulations that may protect your health. Particulate matter of both PM2.5 and PM10 sizes is being recognised as an enormous health risk, almost parallel to the former risks taken by farmers, mine and other workers with pneumonocosis.

Can global warming create more dangerous water problems than we had predicted? It seems now that shallow lakes are in great danger of contamination if we feed them agricultural fertilizers. Chinese, African and now American water supplies are regularly affected and made unusable with Microcystis toxins.

Alberta Tar Sands pollution evidence is devastating

The disgraceful lack of control and study of the Alberta tar sands exploitation is leading to people's health problems. As the US considers its imports from Canada, it would be wise to consider just how neglectful the Canadians have been to their residents, air quality, water purity and forests.

We have ideas and giant international conferences coming up, on how to combat global warming and specifically what we can do with greenhouse gases. It could be, though, that some of the jokers in the pack are simply sequestering while Rome burns. After all, their employment depends on maintaining the coal, oil, gas and even fracking industries. Maybe replacing these industries with renewable energy technologies would use different engineers and spoil the party for many profitable companies?

Mediterranean demise

Mediterranean demise

Posted Fri, 13 Jun 2014 09:40:00 GMT by Paul Robinson

After such a long time, it's amazing that the Mediterranean hasn't been swamped by industrial revolutions or the effects of so many wars. Now the ancient writing on the wall is coming true as recent pollution from fossil fuels acidify and warm the troubled waters. What can we all do about our whole earth climate, after the Med, it’s the Atlantic and then the Pacific. How long can nature hold out against the onslaught of ignorant emissions that we provide?

Mauna Loa gives us the most useful data from relatively unpolluted air at 11,000 feet. However we regard greenhouse gases, it’s far too late to ignore the obvious warming effect. We need action to stop using fossil fuels-completely.

We suffer in cities. To alleviate the pollution that affects our lives, new technologies are beginning to relieve us of traffic emissions, although the removal of large vehicles is another useful move that some more enlightened cities have achieved.

Carbon destroys ocean life as well as our climate

Carbon destroys ocean life as well as our climate

Posted Tue, 15 Apr 2014 06:45:00 GMT by Paul Robinson

Air pollution is rarely linked to water pollution, but the strong links will soon be obvious, just as the surface air movement is influenced by the ocean currents and the temperatures of both. While scientific models can tell us what is going to happen as the earth warms, climate change will also be influenced by small so far neglected fluctuations in chemistry such as these pH changes in our oceans, affecting billions of creatures, and of course, us.

We have written on the disaster that is tar sand waste, but now several more problems are being noticed, when, to be honest, they should have been included in a thorough investigation on these processes before they were initiated.
