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 [...]
The death of the Amazon and the Amazon rainforest will be a catastrophe outstripping any man has known in our short history. The Amazon rainforest are the lungs of the earth and without its regulatory impact on our lives the future will be bleak. We must halt rainforest clearing in the Amazon for ranching and [...]

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 [...]

November 2, 2010 – From Yale Forum on Climate Change & the Media. Another sign from the research community that Earth’s temperature is rising: The volume of fresh water flowing down the world’s rivers has increased markedly since 1994, new satellite data confirms. The study (also see here) led by the University of California, Irvine, [...]

Melt water flowing through ice sheets via crevasses, fractures and large drains called moulins can carry warmth into ice sheet interiors, greatly accelerating the thermal response of an ice sheet to climate change, according to a new study involving the University of Colorado at Boulder. The new study showed ice sheets like the Greenland Ice [...]

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 [...]

A radical new way of looking at the global eco-challenge: what if we got that we had DELIBERATELY created it? We said we wanted global mastery over nature, spent ten-thousand years developing our capacity, and now were the number one force for global change, we dont want to be responsible that we said we wanted [...]
