With a gargantuan crack slowly splitting it apart, Antarctica‘s fastest-melting glacier is about to lose a chunk of ice larger than all of New York City, scientists say. (Also see “Manhattan-Size Ice Island Cracks in Half.”) The crevasse stretches 19 miles (30 kilometers) long and up to 260 feet (80 meters) wide, as shown in [...]

The Reality is we are altering the future for those who will inherit it from us. The Reality is that we presently have within our grasp the opportunity to do something about it. The Reality is that this opportunity is fast slipping away. The Reality is that unless we collectively take responsibility to move away [...]

The first-ever map of how Antarctica’s ice is moving across that continent has been created by researchers at the University of California, Irvine. The map, along with an associated animation (below) developed by NASA, reveals that ice is flowing fastest in coastal ice shelves and their tributaries, shown in this illustration in bright purple and [...]

August 7th 2011. 9pm Within the next seven days the world will decide on what will happen with stock markets around the world. Within 12 hours from now the Australian Stock Exchange will open for business on Monday August 8th. For some time I have argued and promoted that economic growth; consuming out of balance [...]
As extreme weather events multiply, scientists are still in the early stages of understanding how more energy is influencing complex weather phenomena. Despite America’s intense political polarization over climate change, the scientific measurement of global warming is not in dispute. Since 1900, the earth as a whole has warmed by 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit, an empirical [...]

An irreversible climate “tipping point” could occur within the next 20 years as a result of the release of huge quantities of organic carbon locked away as frozen plant matter in the vast permafrost region of the Arctic, scientists have found.Billions of tons of frozen leaves and roots that have lain undisturbed for thousands of [...]

Greenhouse gas emissions increased by a record amount last year, to the highest carbon output in history, putting hopes of holding global warming to safe levels all but out of reach, according to unpublished estimates from the International Energy Agency. The shock rise means the goal of preventing a temperature rise of more than 2 [...]

As many would know Suzanne Sparling of Arizona has served as Executive Director of US Operations for the Greenhouse Neutral Foundation for the last 2 years. Her tireless efforts just prove how the voice of one can, and ultimately does, become the Voice for Change by many. Read the following and join her and the [...]
There are a growing number of inspirational activists rising to the challenge to make a difference in the World. There has never been a better time to be an Activist. In the 60’s activists of the day changed the World. Today more than ever we have at our fingertips the tools to get the job [...]
Is a Disaster Looming for the U.S. Treasuries Market and the Global Monetary System from Japan’s Earthquake and Tsunami?
I have written many times about the link between climate change (extreme weather events) and the future of the insurance industry and or the economic impact on countries. There is little doubt that Mother Nature and Gaia have no regard for where pain is inflicted. This as we have recently seen in Japan can happen [...]
