Tobias Erb on Designing a More Efficient System for Harnessing Carbon Dioxide

"Well this could be promising... Engineering a more efficient system for harnessing carbon dioxide" Scientists have reverse engineered a biosynthetic pathway for more effective carbon fixation that is based on a new CO2-fixing enzyme that is nearly 20 times faster than the most prevalent enzyme in nature responsible for capturing CO2 in plants by using sunlight as energy.

Climate Change:How Skewed Are We... Really? Climate Change content curation, commentary and a soupcon of comedy

Climate Change Round Up Nov 12, 2016
Only 12 percent of students had a teacher who thought climate change was real and believed humans were largely to blame. "North Carolina State University biologists states: ""Our findings suggest convincing teachers that climate change is real, but not necessarily human caused, may have profound impacts on students

A huge magmatic lake has been discovered, 15 kilometers below a dormant volcano in Bolivia, South America. The body of water, which is dissolved into partially molten rock at a temperature of almost 1,000 degrees Celsius, is the equivalent to what is found in some of the world's giant freshwater lakes, such as Lake Superior.  

India will also focus on sustainable lifestyle issues, which found a place in the Paris agreement after Prime Minister Narendra Modi pushed for its inclusion  

Morocco and France’s global climate champions, Hakima El Haite and Laurence Tubiana, launched the Global Climate Action Agenda here on Tuesday. As a successor to the Lima-Paris Action Agenda in 2013, the Global Action Agenda allows non-governmental players, such as civil society organizations, private companies, cities, regions and investors, and their initiatives to play a bigger role.


Climate change does not care about the law of the land in the U.S. It cares about the laws of physics. Trump can change laws in the U.S. He can’t change them in the atmosphere.
4 A new study concludes warm climate is more sensitive to changes in CO2 “The only way out is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions as soon as possible,” Tobias Friedrich from the International Pacific Research Center (IPRC) at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa 

focus shifts to China to take on the role as global leader in taking action. 

Zou Ji, deputy director of the National Centre for Climate Change Strategy said that if Trump abandons efforts to implement the Paris agreement, "China's influence and voice are likely to increase in global climate governance, which will then spill over into other areas of global governance and increase China's global standing, power and leadership." 

Trump will be terrible, but it’s not just about Trump. It’s about you, too. there’s a lot each of us can do in our own lives. Yes, we’ll need systemic change to preserve a habitable planet for future generations, but that change begins with small steps in our own daily lives—and Trump can’t keep you from starting that today.

Climate Litigation | Inside The Issues 6.11

David Estrin of CIGI, a senior research fellow with the International Law Research Program. At CIGI, he is involved with developing and leading examinations of the effectiveness of international environmental law regimes, including the following areas:

  • governance and regulation of the extractive and energy sector, including rapidly evolving international law expectations for effective environmental standards and related corporate conduct, particularly considering how non-responsiveness to these expectations may impact on human rights;
  • assessing international, transnational, and local law-based and market-based approaches to reversing climate change and its impacts (case studies); 
  • and international environmental law related trade and investment and intellectual property issues.

Limiting Dangerous Climate Change: The Critical Role of Citizen Suits and Domestic Courts—Despite the Paris Agreement

This paper focuses on the emerging new role of citizen suits, domestic courts and human rights commissions in limiting dangerous climate change. Given the failure of states to stop the almost constant increase in global carbon emissions (and now the worrying practical and legal gaps in the 2015 Paris Agreement), frustrated citizens are increasingly looking to domestic courts to require governments to mitigate emissions and limit climate harm. This emerging role is demonstrated in three important 2015 decisions: Urgenda from the Netherlands; Leghari from Pakistan; and Foster v Washington Department of Ecology from the United States. These suits before domestic courts have achieved significant results in the battle against climate change. Each court found there was a legal duty on the respondent government to rein in carbon emissions or take other measures to prevent significant climate-related human and civil rights impacts. Also in 2015, the Philippines Human Rights Commission agreed to investigate and hold hearings as to the responsibility of large international fossil fuel companies for substantial impairment of human rights in the Philippines caused by extreme weather events.

Project Peru:The Case of Huaraz: Saúl versus RWE

A Peruvian farmer is demanding that the German energy company, RWE, pay compensation for its role in causing historical climate change. RWE is one of the “Carbon Majors” identified by research commissioned by the Climate Justice Programme and published in the journal Climatic Change. The plaintiff, Saul Luciano Lliuya, has demanded that RWE pay part of the costs for urgent protective measures as his home lies in the floodpath of the Palcacocha lake which is damming glacial melt-water upstream of his home in the town of Huaraz, in Peru’s Cordillera Blanca, or white mountain range.

Lord Nicholas Stern

Today’s young people can and should hold their parents’ generation to account for their present actions. They can elicit an emotional response that can motivate action. If thinking about the lives of unborn future generations seems too abstract to motivate you to act, try instead looking a young child or grandchild in the eye and asking yourself what sort of future you are leaving for them. There is something that, on reflection, many adults would surely find repugnant in the idea that they will leave their children a damaged planet that will radically affect their life possibilities.

Kiribati President Anote Tong

"…I remember I had been trying to convince him to visit Kiribati and he did in 2011. He came to Kiribati and I remember he went to visit one of these communities that was flooded every time there is very high tides and there was this young boy who stepped up to the Secretary General and said Mr. Secretary General, you are a very important man you know, is there something that you can do to ensure I will have a future, that I will have a home. And the Secretary General came back and he said Mr. President I have been listening to you at the General Assembly but I never truly understood what it was you trying to communicate but now I do and I feel and I understand I would do everything that I can”
