Why Global Warming focus is hurting the environmentalism debate by Slamfu “You can’t reason someone out of something they were never reasoned into” – Jonathan Swift Whenever I see a piece on environmental issues these days, it seems to me that it is always couched in terms of CO2 emissions and Global Warming only.

Climate change show and tell 31.10.2014 Le Monde Diplomatique
The media cover individual, preferably spectacular, events but ignore long-term issues like global warming, which most threaten us.
There was much media coverage of climate change early in the 2000s, with events like sea ice loss in the Arctic making the headlines. But disaster narratives can only be sustained for so long. Soon after the UN's Copenhagen talks in 2009, there was a sudden silence, with coverage in 2010 down 70% on the previous year. Fossil fuel lobbyists and others took (...) - 2014/11 /

"Green World Rising": A Call to Save the Earth From Climate Change 30.10.2014 Truthout - All Articles
"The threat of climate change is very real, but we have the solutions, knowledge, and ingenuity needed to help save our planet…" (Photo: Hagens World )In two previous videos narrated by Leonard DiCaprio and available over at GreenWorldRising.org , we’ve seen the dangers that global warming and climate change present for our planet and the human race. We’ve seen how there’s a giant sleeping monster lurking underground in the form of trapped methane gas, and we’ve learned that, if we continue to do nothing to fight climate change, that methane could get released, causing even more problems for the only planet we can call home. Finally, we’ve seen how putting a price on carbon could be one of the best ways to help fight climate change and save the future of not only our planet, but of the human race. Now, the third video in the four-part series has been released, titled Green World Rising. Green World Rising represents a call to save the human race from the devastating effects of global warming and climate ...

32 Countries Where Global Warming Could Make Violence Worse 30.10.2014 Mother Jones
Recently, the Pentagon released a disturbing report. Climate change, it warned, will exacerbate problems like terrorism and disease outbreaks, drain military resources, and create new enemies. The report said that the military's basic operations—everything from training to its supply chains and infrastructure—are now threatened by rising temperatures and shifting weather patterns. It all points to one conclusion: Global warming is a national security issue. Now a new analysis, released Wednesday, is naming 32 countries in which conflict and civil unrest could be worsened by the changing climate. The findings are part of the seventh annual " Climate Change and Environmental Risk Atlas " from Maplecroft—a firm that studies how vulnerable countries are to various risks. It concludes that climate change is already impacting "food production, poverty, migration and social stability—factors that significantly increase the risk of conflicts and instability in fragile and emerging states." Those pressures could ...

Superstorm Sandy Anniversary: ‘It’s (Still) Global Warming, Stupid’ 29.10.2014 Think Progres

In the 2 years since superstorm Sandy made landfall, climatologists have explained the many ways human-caused global warming worsened the devastation. And absent strong action, we know warming-driven sea level rise will make Sandy-level storm surges the norm on the East Coast in the coming decades.

Hartmann: What Has Greed Cost America? 29.10.2014 NewsTrust Yahoo Pipes Feed
From Thom Hartmann's radio show this Tuesday, he discusses a couple of really great articles. One from Alternet: The Stark Facts of Global Greed, a Disease as Challenging as Climate Change : Global inequality, like global warming, is a disease that may be too far along to ever be cured. We seem helpless, both in the U.S. and around the world, to stop the incessant flow of wealth to an elitist group of people who are simply building on their existing riches. The increasing rate of their takeaway is the message derived from the Credit Suisse Global Wealth Databook ...

Fox News' Parent Company Is Really Worried About Global Warming 29.10.2014 Mother Jones
The day after Superstorm Sandy devastated much of the East Coast, Al Gore issued a statement linking the storm to climate change. That's when Fox News went on the attack. "These global warming claims have been debunked time and time again," declared Eric Bolling , a former crude oil trader who is now one of the network's most inflammatory hosts. "Look, it's weather. Weather changes. Things happen. It has nothing to do with global warming." But Fox's parent company, 21st Century Fox, sees things differently. Earlier this month, a London-based organization called CDP released hundreds of questionnaires it collected from corporations—including 21st Century Fox—that had agreed to disclose their greenhouse gas emissions and outline the risks global warming could pose to their business. In its submission to CDP, 21st Century Fox noted that climate change "may increase the frequency and power of tropical cyclones" and that the resulting storms could hurt its bottom line. And the company cited Sandy as a prime ...

On the News With Thom Hartmann: NPR's Climate Coverage Has Declined Over the Years, and More 28.10.2014 Truthout - All Articles
In today's On the News segment: NPR is supposed to be our national public radio, but it's barely covering climate issues that are in the public's interest; the World Trade Organization says you don't need to know where your meat comes from; more than 24,000 Texans want climate denial removed from their children's textbooks; and more. TRANSCRIPT: Thom Hartmann here - on the best of the rest of....science & green news..... You need to know this. NPR is supposed to be our national public radio, but they're barely covering climate issues that are in the public's interest. Only one month ago, a national New York Times/CBS News poll found that half of all Americans think that global warming is already having a serious impact. Sixty percent of those surveyed even said that protecting our environment should be a priority "even at the risk of curbing economic growth." Despite those clear statistics, NPR's climate coverage has declined steadily over recent years, and now they're slashing their environmental staff ...

The Ebola Vaccine, Traffic Congestion and Global Warming 27.10.2014 Truthout - All Articles
(Image: Filling vaccine via Shutterstock) Truthout can only survive through reader support - click here to make a tax-deductible donation and help publish journalism with real integrity and independence! With large numbers of people now shivering in fear over Ebola, it has occurred to many that it would be nice if we had a vaccine against the deadly virus. If we had a vaccine, people in the countries where the disease is prevalent and the health care workers who care for the sick could get the vaccine and quickly bring the disease under control. The threat of Ebola would soon be history. The interesting part of this story is that we could have had a vaccine, if the government had been willing to put up the money. The New York Times reported last week about a vaccine that was developed nearly a decade ago with funding from the Canadian government. According to the article, the vaccine was 100 percent effective in protecting monkeys exposed to Ebola from contracting the disease. However it was never tested ...
