The Washington PostThe Arctic ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot, according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consulafft, at Bergen , Norway . Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone. Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes.
Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm. Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds. Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coastal cities uninhabitable.




Oops! Never mind. This report was from November 2, 1922, as reported by the Associated Press and published in the Washington Post - 88 years ago!

Rio+20: Reflecting on the past, understanding the present and gazing to the future

The first video from the Regeneration project, a video series that aims to create a roadmap for Rio+20 by asking sustainability pioneers to reflect on the last 20 years and look forward to the next

Jo Confino for the Guardian Professional Network
guardian.co.uk, Thursday 1 March 2012 11.06 GMT

guardian.co.uk 

The Regeneration Project is a collaborative initiative between SustainAbility and GlobeScan. I am not normally one for remembering song lyrics but some words by Misty in Roots, played at Radio 1 DJ John Peel's funeral, have always stuck in my mind

"When we trod this land, we walk for one reason ... to try to help another man think for himself. The music of our hearts is roots music, music which recalls history, because without the knowledge of your history, you cannot turn in your destiny: the music about the present, because if you are not conscious about the present, you're like a cabbage in this society."

They seemed particularly apt as I started writing about the launch of a collaborative project between SustainAbility and GlobeScan that uses Rio+20 as a milestone from which to look back over the past 25 years of sustainability to learn from the past, understand our present and hopefully impact on our future in a positive way.

The Regeneration project, which seeks to provide a roadmap for achieving sustainable development within the next generation, centres around video interviews with the leading sustainability pioneers who helped frame the original United Nations' Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro and the Brundtland Report.

As one generation ages, the desire grows to pass on the knowledge, energy, and lessons learnt, in the hope the new team on the block avoids making some of the same mistakes and makes faster progress, which is now critical in the field of sustainable development if we are to avoid the worse ravages of climate change, social upheaval and ecosystem destruction.

The project focuses in particular on ways the private sector can improve sustainability strategy, increase credibility and deliver results at greater speed and scale.

GSB will be showcasing one interview every week in the run up to the Rio +20 conference in June and those taking part include Bill Ford, chairman of Ford Motor Company, Israel Klabin, the founder of the Brazilian Foundation for Sustainable Development, Rajendra Pachauri, chair of the IPCC, and Gro Harlem Brundtland, former prime minister of Norway and chair of the Bruntdland Committee.

While some pioneers recollect the optimism of 1992, there is a deep sense of sadness of how little progress has been made. Maurice Strong, who served as United Nations (UN) Secretary General for the 1992 Rio Earth Summit, says: "If governments had done what they agreed to do [at Rio] we would be much closer to an answer than we are now."

Nevertheless, the pioneers point to several reasons to remain hopeful, pointing to bright spots that have emerged in the areas of local government innovation, citizen participation, clean energy and technology development.

Many also look with hope to the conscientious, connected teens, twenty and thirty-somethings who will form future generations of leaders. This cohort has grown up with social entrepreneurs, citizen activists, and social innovators as role models.

What the pioneers are clear about is that incremental change is not enough and there needs to be a fundamental re-appraisal of the current economic system.

Vandana Shiva, philosopher and founder of Navdanya, believes we need to reprioritise and refocus: "For too long, we have been made fools of with the illusions and fictions of Wall Street. We are at a crossroads of multiple crises… the crises of the economy and financial world, of climate change, of peak oil, overall ecological crisis, the water crisis, the biodiversity crisis… it's now a convergent crisis."

Lester Brown of the Earth Policy Institute characterises our challenge as a race between two tipping points. The first is a political tipping point, the moment in time when humanity decides to take action on these urgent issues. The second is an environmental tipping point: the point beyond which there is little we can do to recover what we have lost.

The pioneers are sober about their expectations of global political leaders. Achim Steiner, executive director of the UN Environmental Program (UNEP), says: "I think the political leadership in most of our countries at the moment is either preoccupied or not able to focus on this challenge or not prepared to focus on it."

Nitin Desai, Deputy Secretary-General of the 1992 Earth Summit, points out that international relations is locked in an old paradign which is for "national governments to protect their national interest… not issue interest."

The financial system is also seen as a major roadblock with Matthew Kiernan, former executive director of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development accusing banks of taking a one-dimensional view of their role. Because their direct environmental impact is minimal, compared to most other industries, too many have felt they could opt out of the discourse. But, Kiernan says, "If you're looking for transformational change, the capital markets, the purveyors of the financial oxygen supply of companies, should be the focus. "

The pioneers say that given the vacuum elsewhere, increasing leadership is being seen from the collaboration between the corporate and NGO sectors.

Jim MacNeill, Secretary General of the Brundtland Commission and lead author of the Brundtland Report, said, "I hate to imagine where we would be if a number of corporate leaders had not bitten the bullet and taken the lead."

But the challenge ahead will be translating the vision of a few leading companies to the majority of business. John Elkington, founder at SustainAbility and Volans explains, "I think it's a big stakes game and many of the C-suite people that I watch closely are finding it very difficult to… build the sense of conviction that this is the future and they've got to play into it. They're still in this period of vacillation."

What is providing some backbone to the business appetite for action is the constant pressure from NGOs. In contrast to government, they can often move quickly, aren't afraid to experiment, and, can mobilise effectively through social media. Kakabadse says: "There is no recipe for sustainable development. [Civil society] is permanently challenging [itself] to try new ways of doing things. And sometimes we succeed and sometimes we don't. But, [we] have the courage to try, to risk, to go for it."

To achieve sustainable development in the next generation, the pioneers say there is a need to reconsider the incentives and penalties in our economic system, which have changed little since the Earth Summit.

The current system does not account for, or measure, the resources that make our economies, our companies, and our lives function. As Shiva says: "Growth only measures commercial transactions. It doesn't measure growth in any real terms. It doesn't measure the growth of our trees, the growth of our soil, the growth of our children, the growth of health in society, the growth of happiness and joy in society."

Twenty-first century businesses will have to be more cognisant of planetary limits, and also be willing to create new models that take into account biodiversity and natural resources.

Elkington says: "One of the fundamental problems I think the C-suite actors in this space currently have is that as more and more of this becomes systemic, not just a single issue, it becomes dramatically more complex in terms of who does what, who's got responsibility, where the risk and opportunities lie, what the role of this particular company might be moving forward."

Climate change skeptic's university course criticized

By Emily Chung, CBC News Posted: Mar 2, 2012 4:58 AM ET Last Updated: Mar 2, 2012 6:35 AM ET

CASS report: Climate Change Denial in the Classroom International Climate Science Coalition

(Note:CBC does not endorse and is not responsible for the content of external links unless they're socialist)




Tom Harris taught about 1,500 students at Carleton University over four terms that the course was offered between 2009 and 2011.
(CBC) A group of scientists is raising alarm about "incorrect science" in a course at Ottawa's Carleton University that was taught for three years by a climate change skeptic.

"We describe a case in which noted climate change deniers have gained access to the Canadian higher education system through a course taught at Carleton University," the Ottawa-based Committee for the Advancement of Scientific Skepticism said in a report this week.

But the course instructor, Tom Harris, denies there are any problems with the science he taught.

CASS, which says its goal is to "critically [examine] scientific, technological and medical claims in public discourse," said its audit of video lectures and course materials for the second-year course called "Climate Change: An Earth Sciences Perspective" found the course to be biased and inaccurate.

It said the course's key messages "contradict accepted scientific opinion" on climate change, such as the idea that humans and their carbon emissions are largely responsible for the recent increase in global temperatures.

Harris is executive director of an Ottawa-based group called the International Climate Science Coalition. His course featured guest lecturers from Carleton, the University of Ottawa, the University of Winnipeg and James Cook University in Australia, who are all on the coalition's scientific advisory board.

The coalition's website says it aims to move climate change discussions away from "costly and ineffectual 'climate control' " measures and publicizes issues such as the "dangerous impacts of attempts to replace conventional energy sources with wind turbines, solar power, biofuels and other ineffective and expensive energy sources."

On the coalition's website, Harris says that scientists "cannot as yet even detect a human signal on top of natural variability [in climate], let alone determine if action of any kind is needed" and that there is "intense debate now raging among researchers concerning the causes of climate change."

Christopher Hassall, lead author of the CASS report, said he and his co-authors were concerned about whether the science taught in the audited course was correct.

"And we feel very strongly that there are a large number of examples where the instructor taught incorrect science," he said, alleging that it included few peer-reviewed studies and those that were included have since been refuted.

Hassall, a postdoctoral researcher in conservation and evolutionary biology at Carleton, said he and co-author Chris Hebbern are both very familiar with the recent scientific literature on climate change and the scientific consensus views about it through their recent doctoral work on the impacts of climate change on biodiversity and human health respectively.

Report a 'disgraceful' attack: Harris In an email, Harris called the CASS report's findings "often unsubstantiated and at times wrong" interpretations of the science he taught that were "often taken out of context."

"I have yet to see anything in the course critique from Hassell [and others] that warrants a correction," he added.

He said it is "disgraceful" that Hassall, himself a Carleton researcher, would publicly attack a course at the university and its instructors without checking anything with the instructor.

Harris, who has two degrees in mechanical engineering from Carleton, said he was asked to teach the course starting in January 2009 because the usual instructor, Prof. Tim Patterson, was going on sabbatical. Harris said he taught about 1,500 students over the four terms that the course was offered between 2009 and 2011 and his student ratings were very high. The course is not being offered this year.

According to Carleton University, when full-time faculty are not available to teach a course, the department hosting the course advertises for a sessional instructor and makes the recommendation to the dean's office, which reviews and approves the hire.

"Academic excellence is a priority at Carleton," the university said in a statement responding to the report. "We review our courses to balance content with academic freedom and the rights of our instructors as outlined in their collective agreement."

Climate Change: Facing-Off On The Future

I was sitting two rows back behind Al Gore at the TED conference this week as the debate over Climate Change took center stage.

I say debate – even though pretty much everyone who knows anything about science agrees there isn’t much to debate. As both a former Vice-President, and now the most powerful voice on the climate crisis, Gore deserves the credit for bringing the issue out of the labs and to center stage. His film, ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ brought the issue into stark focus and began the conversation in ernest. But it also created a problem. A problem that was evident on the TED stage this week.

Paul Gilding, an author and activist, began the conversation with his profoundly disturbing talk “The Earth is full.” Gilding argued that our focus on growth at any cost has put the planet in peril. He said technology drives efficiency and economic growth – and powers breakneck consumption that the planet cannot endure. He made a case for how our lust for the latest gadgets is distracting people from acting to stop global disasters like climate change.

“The world is full. It is full of us. It is full of our stuff, full of our waste, and full of our demands,” Gilding said. “We have created too much stuff. This is not a philosophical statement, this is just science. Our approach is simply unsustainable.” Mr. Gilding is the former director of Greenpeace International. “Thanks to those pesky laws of physics, it will stop. The system will break.”

It was a sobering talk in a room full of techno-optomists. One that I could only imagine Gore strongly agreed with in the hall with 1,500 leading thinkers and doers. “The Earth doesn’t care what we need,” said Gilding. “Mother Nature doesn’t negotiate; she just sets rules and administers consequences.”

Here’s the TED talk “Paul Gilding: The Earth is full”

[iframe style="POSITION: relative" class=dimensions_initialized height=643 src="http://steverosenbaum.magnify.net/video/Paul-Gilding-The-Earth-is-full/player?layout=&read_more=1" frameBorder=0 width=620 scrolling=no data-orig-width="420" data-orig-height="436"][/iframe]

Gilding’s talk was emotional – and powerful. “We’ve had 50 years of warnings and pretty much done nothing to change course,” as his eyes welled with tears.

Many in the audience stood to applaud, Gore among them.

Then, to provide a vision to counter Gilding’s doomsday vision – Peter Diamandis gave a TED talk with a decidedly techno-optomist point of view.

“I’m not saying that we don’t have our share of problems – climate change, species extinction, resource shortage – but ultimately we have the ability to see problems way in advance and knock them down,” said Diamandis. Diamandis heads Singularity University, and is the head of the nonprofit X Prize Foundation. “Scarcity is contextual and technology is a liberating force,” he said. For Diamandis, the issue comes down to one word – abundance. His recently published the book, “Abundance: The Future is Better Than You Think,” argues that we’ve got the brainpower to engineer ourselves out of world threatening issues like food shortages, water purity, and global warming.

Here’s the TED talk “Peter Diamandis: Abundance is our future.”

[iframe style="POSITION: relative" class=dimensions_initialized height=643 src="http://steverosenbaum.magnify.net/video/Peter-Diamandis-Abundance-is-ou/player?layout=&read_more=1" frameBorder=0 width=620 scrolling=no data-orig-width="420" data-orig-height="436"][/iframe]

After the two presentations, TED Curator Chris Anderson asked to audience to vote on which view was more compelling. Diamandis’ optimistic view won 55% of the vote, while Gilding got just 45% of the vote. Clearly the result must have been disappointing for Gore – who’s been working tirelessly to make Climate Change issue #1 among the worlds’ thinkers, and more broadly anyone concerned about the future of the planet.

So, what’s happening here? Well, there’s a school of thought that says Gore’s leadership on the issue has been a mixed blessing. Given Gore’s liberal democratic pedigree, his leadership has, by its nature, been political. There may be some truth to this, but it probably doesn’t matter. It’s hard to get any constituency to take a long term view on any issue, given the short term needs and political expediency of those needs. Big systemic change in how we build cars, consume energy, or grow our food isn’t going to come without political leadership and a sustainable call for change. So even as the evidence grows, and mid-winter days become balmy and warm – Gore’s clarion call seems to fade into the background. Diane Sawyer, reporting on ABC World News, now proclaims the nightly weather disasters she reports as ‘wacky’ or ‘unusual’ or ‘bizarre’, as if the parade of hurricanes, tsunamis, floods, and avalanches are all unrelated instances of mother natures mercurial mood. This could be no farther from the truth.

To wrap up the TED conversation, Chris Anderson brought both Diamandis and Gilding on stage. Diamandis express his confidence we’d sort things out. But Gilding ended with the ominous concern that it all comes down to timing - and we’d better hope all this innovation shows up in time. Indeed.

You wouldn't know it flying into Fort McMurray that this is one of the most famous places in all the world. You keep waiting to see some vast Siberia-sized pit and all below is the natural landscape of northern Alberta. From reading about it and from all the alarms that are sounded, somehow you expect something more much hyperdramatic - kind of a mix of Dystopia and Dante's Inferno.

listen to the whole show here...

cbc.ca 

But Fort Mac itself is a bustling busy town, showing all the signs of extremely rapid growth. There are people who were born here; there are people from all over the rest of the country - drivers, cranemen, technicians, scientists, miners, engineers, labourers, equipment repair, and a host of ancillary services. It is one of the busiest places in Canada and a place where they are more "types" of Canadians than anywhere else. It's got one of the highest birth rates in the country with a hundred babies born a month.

But Fort Mac is also in the eye of a storm. For some it's ground zero in the war against fossil fuels, or a great proxy on the development policies of our modern age. Everyone has an opinion on For Mac and the job that's going one here -- from the European Union to the presidential race, to Dalton McGuinty, to every newspapers and television commentary in all of North American, and beyond.

One rabid commentator said because of the oil sands Canada is now a petro-thug state. Funny how much harsh comes down on a place that is supplying, and will supply, one of the essential components of Canada and the world's economy. There are a lot of places in Canada right now, because of jobs here, that are a lot better off than normally they would be.

We are here today in downtown Fort McMurray in the largest rec centre in Western Canada -- the Suncor Community Leisure Centre.

Our question today: What's the role of the oil sands in Canada's future?

I'm Rex Murphy ...on CBC Radio One ...and on Sirius satellite radio channel 159 ...this is Cross Country Checkup ...live from the Suncor Community Leisure Centre in Fort McMurray, Alberta

Rex Murphy: Oil sands are a triumph for the human ‘environment’ Rex Murphy Mar 17, 2012 – 5:55 AM ET | Last Updated: Mar 16, 2012 2:47 PM ET



Suncor Energy

Large trucks are used to mine the oil sands at Suncor Energy’s facility in northern Alberta.

I’m lucky to be going to Fort McMurray, Alta. this weekend with colleagues from CBC Radio’s Cross Country Checkup. I have a great wish to see what the green Jeremiahs deem to be the greatest blot on the visage of Mother Gaia, and to meet some of the soulless folk who work there. After all, environmentalists might ask: Who would take a job on a site that threatens the destiny of the planet, except people whose souls have been bought off with oil-company lucre?

Outside Fort McMurray, it is impossible to escape the furor over the Alberta oilsands. Its product is routinely described, lazily and slanderously, as the dirtiest on the planet. The Premier of Ontario, a province that owes much of its prosperity to its huge automobile industry shivers when he looks at Alberta, mutters about the dark forces of the “petro-dollar,” and implied (until he was scolded and half-recanted) that somehow Ontario’s fretful financial state is Alberta’s fault.

It’s almost a fantasy disconnect. Dalton Mcguinty can throw billions at General Motors and urge the feds to do the same, all to save the automobile industry. He ignores that four decades or more of Ontario’s prosperity wasn’t founded on windmills: It was based on gas-guzzling cars and trucks.

Down in the States, Fort MacMurray is the green lobby’s ultimate bogeyman. Environmental groups raise money by attacks on the oilsands. Fort McMurray and the Keystone XL pipeline that would take its bounty south. This rhetoric has even made it into presidential politics. The shameless and high-gloss National Geographic put out a hit-issue deploring the oilsands as the ultimate “polluter.”

Are Canadians falling for this propaganda, too? The bounty of our country has made us complacent, even smug, about the resource extraction that makes it possible. Canada is at the very forefront of the world’s developed nations. Our schools, hospitals, universities, arts and industries are at the very top of the chain — all because we have the energy to drive an economy that can support these great boons.

Yet how easily we bite the hand that feeds us. “Environment” has become a narrow, bitterly focussed word turning exclusively on hurts or despoilations of nature, magnifying the slightest alteration or disturbance of “the natural” as an unspeakable sin.

There is another wider, larger, humane dimension to the environment — larger and more vital than any reference to landscape. That is the human and social element, the business of supplying reasonable support for workers and their families, towns and communities, and ultimately wealth for the entire nation. We owe something, it is true to the rocks and trees. We also owe something to human beings as well.

In my view, this is the first and deepest justification for Fort Mac and the oil industry. Jobs are essential for the human environment — for a woman’s or a man’s sense of self-reliance and independence. By this, I mean the right to be able to obtain what you need for yourself and your family from what you have honestly earned. Being able, because you are employed, to stay off welfare, to turn aside from handouts — this is good for the environment of human dignity.

It mightn’t have the smug appeal of a panda face, and you will not see it on the vivid posters of the Sierra Club or Greenpeace, but having a job and earning a living is a great thing. Those who have been out of work know what a cruel “environment” that is — an emotional and psychological assault of frightful power. So we should celebrate some of the contributions that the oil sands have already made to the fundamental human environments of so many Canadians.

I have thought, and thought again, of my own province of Newfoundland, caught in the great calamity of the fisheries’ close-down in the 1990s, and how providential it was that “out West,” an oil economy was booming at the same time. Many Newfoundlanders (and Maritimers) migrated there in a time of real need.

Great social misery was averted because of the oil boom and Newfoundland’s related offshore developments: Thousands of divorces never happened, thousands of families didn’t break up, thousands of men and women didn’t fall into the trap of depression and worse, which so often attends long-term unemployment — because there was a great oil industry that allowed them the wherewithal to feed their families. It is a great story of modern Confederation: How Alberta, in particular, modified and mitigated the misery of Newfoundland — and other places.

I can summarize the entire case very simply. The environment is not just what you see on green posters. It is not just sunsets and tall trees. It is also the people living in it. And people need energy, and people need jobs. Projects such as the oilsands, which supplies both in abundance, should be celebrated for its cutting-edge technological and scientific prowess. It is Canada’s great national project for the 21st century. I look forward to the trip.

Climate Change Skepticism a Sickness That Must be “Treated,” Says Professor








Global warming alarmist equates climate denial with racism

Paul Joseph Watson
Infowars.com
Friday, March 30, 2012




Comparing skepticism of man-made global warming to racist beliefs, an Oregon-based professor of sociology and environmental studies has labeled doubts about anthropogenic climate change a “sickness” for which individuals need to be “treated”.

Professor Kari Norgaard, who is currently appearing at the ‘Planet Under Pressure’ conference in London, has presented a paper in which she argues that “cultural resistance” to accepting the premise that humans are responsible for climate change “must be recognized and treated” as an aberrant sociological behavior.

Norgaard equates skepticism of climate change alarmists – whose data is continually proven to be politicized, agenda driven and downright inaccurate – with racism, noting that overcoming such viewpoints poses a similar challenge “to racism or slavery in the U.S. South.”

“Professor Norgaard considers that fuzzy-studies academics such as herself must stand shoulder to shoulder with the actual real climate scientists who know some maths in an effort to change society and individuals for their own good. It’s not a new idea: trick-cyclists in Blighty and the US have lately called for a “science of communicating science” rather reminiscent of Isaac Asimov’s science-fictional “Psychohistory” discipline, able to predict and alter the behaviour of large populations,” reports the Register.

As Jurriaan Maessen documented yesterday, the ‘Planet Under Pressure’ confab at which Norgaard is appearing to push this insane drivel is nothing other than a strategy session for neo-eugenicists to hone their population control agenda.

A statement put out by the scientists behind the event calls for humans to be packed into denser cities (eco-gulags?) so that the rest of the planet can be surrendered to mother nature. It’s a similar idea to the nightmare ‘Planned-Opolis’ proposal put out by the Forum for the Future organization last year, in which human activity will be tightly regulated by a dictatorial technocracy in the name of saving the planet.

  • A d v e r t i s e m e n t


  • The mindset of this gaggle of arrogant, scoffing elitists in their drive to micro-manage the human race, which they regard as a plague on the earth, is best encapsulated by the following quote from ‘Planet Under Pressure’ attendee and Yale University professor Karen Seto.

    “We certainly don’t want them (humans) strolling about the entire countryside. We want them to save land for nature by living closely [together],” Seto told MSNBC.

    The effort to re-brand legitimate scientific dissent as a mental disorder that requires pharmacological or psychological treatment is a frightening glimpse into the Brave New World society climate change alarmists see themselves as ruling over.

    Due to the fact that skepticism towards man-made global warming is running at an all time high, and with good reason, rather than admit they have lost the debate, climate change alarmists are instead advocating that their ideological opponents simply be drugged or brainwashed into compliance.

    Norgaard’s effort to equate climate skepticism with racism as a disorder that requires “treatment” also serves as a reminder of the story we covered earlier this month about the establishment’s efforts to push the pharmaceutical heart drug Propranolol as a “cure” for racist thoughts.
