Climate Change Daily Vid July 31, 2017:The impact of global warming on societies in the Arctic

A Finnish icebreaker has completed the Northwest Sea passage, which links the Atlantic and Pacific oceans across the Arctic. The trip, from Vancouver to Greenland’s capital city Nuuk, took 24 days -- a new record, in part because climate change has melted sea ice, making the journey easier. Frank Jordans, an Associated Press reporter who took the trip, joins Hari Sreenivasan from Greenland.

SREENIVASAN:  There were several researchers on board this vessel.  What were they studying?

JORDANS:  The impact of global warming on societies in the Arctic, some were taking records of the marine animals that we were encountering.  And some were looking at the Northwest Passage from an economic point of view.

Climate Change Daily VId July 27, 2017: US climate scientist: I was pushed out

Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience government scientist Joel Clement, who was reassigned to the accounting department after speaking out on climate change, talks to Christiane Amanpour.CNN

Clement believes reassignments are meant to compel people to quit as an effort to cut the department’s staff. Now, he’s calling himself a whistle-blower.

“Silencing civil servants, stifling science, squandering taxpayer money, and spurning communities in the face of imminent danger have never made America great,” Clement writes.

Climate Change Daily Vid July 26, 2017: A professional climate denier,  Taylor is now an advocate for addressing climate change.

Jerry Taylor is the president of the Niskanen Center. Prior to founding the Center in 2014, Mr. Taylor spent 23 years at the Cato Institute.

“I was an enthusiastic and convinced champion of the idea that climate change is an overblown problem. A growing number of conservative leaders and intellectuals have come to terms with climate science and begun casting about for solutions. Led mainly by libertarians and libertarian-leaning economists, they’ve begun to coalesce behind a carbon tax, which they consider the most market-friendly of the available alternatives."

New From James Hansen: Young People’s Burden: Requirement of Negative CO2 Emissions

Conclusions include:
1. Global warming in the past 50 years has raised global temperature (Fig. 1) well above the prior
range in the Holocene (the current interglacial period, approximately the past 11,700 years) to the level of the Eemian period (130,000 to 115,000 years ago), when sea level was 6-9 meters (20-30 feet) higher than today.

2. Global warming can be held below 1.5°C (the aspirational goal of the Paris Agreement) if rapid
reductions of global CO2 emission (at least 3%/year) begin by 2021 and if there is no net growth of
other climate forcings (Fig. 2). However, 1.5°C global warming exceeds estimated Eemian
temperature and is not an appropriate goal.

3. The growth rate of greenhouse gas climate forcing has accelerated markedly in the past several
years (Fig. 3), a conclusion starkly at odds with the common narrative that the world has recently
turned the corner toward a solution of the global warming problem.

4. An appropriate goal is to return global temperature to the Holocene range with a century. Such
a goal was still achievable in 2013 if rapid emission reductions had begun at that time and if there
were a global program for reforestation and improved agricultural and forestry practices. Now
climate restoration this century would also require substantial technological extraction of CO2 from
the air. If rapid emission reductions do not begin soon, the burden placed on young people to
extract CO2 emitted by prior generations may become implausibly difficult and costly.

The climate mitigation gap: education and government recommendations miss the most effective individual actions

A new study in the journal Environmental Research Letters:

The four actions that create the most bang for your emissions-reducing buck are ones most of us avoid:

  • having fewer children; 
  • living without a car; 
  • avoiding transatlantic flights; 
  • eating a plant-based (mostly vegetarian) diet.

John Elkington was described by Business Week in 2004 as "a dean of the corporate responsibility movement for three decades." In 2008, the Evening Standard had named him among the ‘1000 Most Influential People’ in London, describing him as “a true green business guru,” and as “an evangelist for corporate social and environmental responsibility long before it was fashionable.” But his first involvement in the field dates back to 1961 when, aged 11, he raised money for the newly formed World Wildlife Fund (WWF).

He says he has always struggled to come up with a suitable elevator pitch to describe what he does, but he suggests that one way to think of it is that he and his colleagues serve as "grit in the corporate oyster," providing a "pro-business, pro-future" irritant around which new forms of value can form. His personal website and blog can be found here

He has written or co-authored 19 books, including 1988’s million-selling Green Consumer Guide, 1997’s Cannibals with Forks: The Triple Bottom Line of 21st Century Business, the book which brought his triple bottom line concept and agenda to a wider audience, and 2008’s The Power of Unreasonable People: How Social Entrepreneurs Create Markets That Change the World, co-authored with Volans co-founder Pamela Hartigan. His most recent book, co-authored with Jochen Zeitz, former Chairman and CEO of PUMA, and now co-Chair with Sir Richard Branson of The B Team, is The Breakthrough Challenge: 10 Ways to Connect Tomorrow's Profits with Tomorrow's Bottom Line (Jossey-Bass, 2014)..

Climate Change Daily Vid July 10 2017 Isaac Held

Climate Change Daily Vid July 10 2017

Held's research has had two major themes. The first is understanding how the earth's climate responds to changes in the amount of solar radiation hitting the planet or to the concentration of greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere. His early work highlighted the importance of the lapse rate in determining the climate's response to radiation changes.[2] Held has continued to be concerned with how global warming can alter both the cycle of water and the distribution of winds on earth. In a paper published in 2006 with Brian Soden, he showed that this increase in precipitation might nonetheless be associated with a slowdown of the Walker circulation. The second theme of Held's research is the general circulation of the atmosphere. In one of his earliest papers,[3] he showed that when a region is unstable to the large-scale planetary waves known as Rossby waves, the propagation of waves out of this region results in an easterly (westward) acceleration, which generates jet streams in midlatitudes. In contrast, regions in which these waves break experience an eastward (westerly) acceleration.[4] Held also developed a theory for the Hadley circulation that would exist in the absence of atmospheric turbulence .[5] Wikipedia Best Sellers Climate Change

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.

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”
