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 [...]

Recently on a trip to Esperance on Western Australia’s southern most coast, I took a day to visit Cape Le Grand National Park and Frenchman’s Peak, just over 50 kilometres east of Esperance. Named by the French in 1792 the Peak stands 262 metres above sea level. At the base of the impressive rock formation, [...]
Lester Brown of the Earth Policy Institute and Author of Plan B 4.0: Mobilizing to Save Civilization We are entering a new era, one of rapid and often unpredictable climate change. In fact, the new climate norm is change. The 25 warmest years on record have come since 1980. And the 10 warmest years since [...]

The following presentation may make you think twice about how you use or limit the use of electricity. For Jeff Goodall, author of Big Coal, the Dirty Secret Behind America’s Energy Future, he says: Clean coal is sort of like healthy cigarettes or limited nuclear war or fat free donuts. It’s one of the great oxymoron’s [...]
In 2008 when I wrote ZERO Greenhouse Emissions, I included a chapter ‘Mother Natures Super Salesman’ to attempt to get the point across that unless we decarbonise our activities in the short term Mother Nature would kick in some of her stores of carbon and methane. Many other facts were revealed and I would encourage [...]

The first comprehensive synthesis on the effects of climate change on the world’s oceans has found they are now changing at a rate not seen for several million years. In an article published June 18 in Science magazine, scientists reveal the growing atmospheric concentrations of man-made greenhouse gases are driving irreversible and dramatic changes to [...]

The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) thinks global carbon emissions will increase 43 percent by 2035 if major nations maintain the status quo as far as energy policies go and do not try to stop climate change. The EIA’s 2010 long-term global energy analysis predicts that energy use will increase 49 percent between 2007 and [...]

by Guy Pearse The greatest coal rush the world has seen is being conducted as if climate change is not happening, and coal is king. It wasn’t always this way. Coalmining has a long history in Australia, but coal wasn’t an important export until the last few decades. Before 1960, Queensland had no coal-export industry. [...]

Greenhouse Neutral Foundation Comment: – Looking forward further into the future Scientist have suggested the upward movement of rising temperatures won’t just stop at the current upper levels suggested by the IPCC but will continue. As suggested by Mother Natures Supersalesman in his closing remarks in the book ZERO Greenhouse Emissions – excerpt “Now just [...]
