1912 Newspaper Article Anticipates Anthropogenic Global Warming. Claim: A 14 August 1912 article from a New Zealand newspaper contains a brief story about how burning coal might produce future warming by adding carbon dioxide to the atmosphere.

1912 Newspaper Article Anticipates Anthropogenic Global Warming

Origin:On 11 October 2016, the Facebook page “Sustainable Business Network NZ” posted a photograph of a clipping from the 14 August 1912 edition of the Rodney and Otamatea Times, Waitemata and Kaipara Gazette that included a brief item headlined “Coal Consumption Affecting Climate”: The furnaces of the world are now burning about 2,000,000,000 tons of coal a year. When this is burned, uniting with oxygen, it adds about 7,000,000,000 tons of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere yearly. This tends to make the air a more effective blanket for the earth and to raise its temperature. The effect may be considerable in a few centuries.

The 1847 lecture that predicted human-induced climate change

We have undoubtedly already a larger proportion of cleared land in Vermont than would be required, with proper culture, for the support of a much greater population than we now possess, and every additional acre both lessens our means for thorough husbandry, by disproportionately extending its area, and deprives succeeding generations of what, though comparatively worthless to us, would be of great value to them.The functions of the forest, besides supplying timber and fuel, are very various.

Evidence. The Earth's climate has changed throughout history.

Evidence

Just in the last 650,000 years there have been seven cycles of glacial advance and retreat, with the abrupt end of the last ice age about 7,000 years ago marking the beginning of the modern climate era — and of human civilization. Most of these climate changes are attributed to very small variations in Earth’s orbit that change the amount of solar energy our planet receives. Years of Living Dangerously Premiere Full Episode.

“Der geplünderte Planet” – Neuer Bericht an den Club of Rome in Berlin vorgestellt

Juni 2013 finden Sie hier! Neuer Bericht an den Club of Rome: Allmähliche Erschöpfung kostengünstiger mineralischer Bodenressourcen stellt eine ernsthafte Bedrohung für die Zukunft des Wohlstands und des Wirtschaftssystems dar In dem Bericht “ Der geplünderte Planet – Die Zukunft des Menschen im Zeitalter schwindender Ressourcen ”, deckt der Autor, Ugo Bardi, das Thema des Raubbaus der Bodenschätze im großen Umfang ab. Er kommt zu dem Schluss, dass wir, trotz der enormen Bedeutung mineralischer Rohstoffe für unseren Wohlstand, an die Grenzen der Wirtschaftlichkeit bei ihrer Gewinnung gelangen, was besonders bei fossilen Brennstoffen ersichtlich wird.

Der Bericht benennt damit eine der größten Herausforderungen unserer Zivilisation in den kommenden Jahrzehnten. „ Der geplünderte Planet “, wurde in Berlin der Öffentlichkeit vorgestellt. Der Bericht hält fest, dass es keine einfache Lösung für die zunehmende Ressourcenverknappung gibt. Wissenschaftsgeschichte des Klimawandels.

Wissenschaftsgeschichte des Klimawandels

Individual and political action on climate change. Individual and political action on climate change can take many forms, most of which have the ultimate goal of limiting and/or reducing the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, toward avoiding dangerous climate change.

Individual and political action on climate change

Political action[edit] Political action can change laws and regulations that relate to climate change, such as tax incentives, greenhouse gas emissions limits or establishing a regulatory framework within which carbon trading markets can operate. Political action can also gain media and public attention to climate change. The Compensators - Verschmutzungsrechte kaufen und löschen. Victory at Hand for the Climate Movement? There are signs the climate movement could be on the verge of a remarkable and surprising victory.

Victory at Hand for the Climate Movement?

If we read the current context correctly, and if the movement can adjust its strategy to capture the opportunity presented, it could usher in the fastest and most dramatic economic transformation in history. This would include the removal of the oil, coal and gas industries from the economy in just a few decades and their replacement with new industries and, for the most part, entirely new companies. It would be the greatest transfer of wealth and power between industries and countries the world has ever seen. To understand this incredible potential we first have to step back and understand the unique structure of this social change movement, which may rank among the most influential in history.

It is simplistic to characterise it as an alliance of grass roots organisations and activists pitched against a rich and well connected adversary. Dan Miller: Boom or Bust?

Explore the Shocking Effects of Climate Change on 6 Continents. Climate change isn't an issue for any one government or any one region. Carbon pollution has taken a devastating toll across the planet, from floods in Manila to droughts in Australia. To learn about the global reach of the environmental changes caused by human behavior, take a world tour with the six videos that premiered during Climate Reality Project's 24 Hours of Reality: The Cost of Carbon. Mashable is proud to partner with the Climate Reality Project for its third annual 24 Hours of Reality. After joining Al Gore for a kick-off Hangout on Monday, we hosted Meetups on Tuesday, where our community came together to discuss changes we can make to reduce our individual carbon footprints.

Exclusive: Climate Hustle’s Marc Morano Turns Down $20k Global Warming Bets From Bill Nye The Science Guy. One of America’s most outspoken deniers of the link between fossil fuel burning and global warming has refused $20,000 in bets that the planet will keep getting hotter. Offering the two bets to Marc Morano, of the conservative think tank the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT), is popular television science presenter Bill Nye, “the science guy”.

Nye said he was willing to bet Morano that 2016 would be one of the ten hottest years on record. He also offered a bet the current decade would be the hottest on record. Morano turned down both bets, telling DeSmog it was “silly” to take a bet when it was “obvious” the official records would show more global warming. According to NASA measurements, 14 of the 16 hottest years on record have all happened since the year 2000. As DeSmog has reported, Climate Hustle features a roll call of climate science deniers and is set to rehash old myths.

CO₂ zählen ist kein Klimaschutz. Sonntag, 08. Mai 2016, 10:01 Uhr Unter Klimaschutz wird heute meist das Einsparen einer bestimmten Menge CO2-Äquivalent verstanden. Das ist eine simplifizierende Sichtweise, die zu einem bedenklichen Ablasshandel führt. Two degrees: Will we avoid dangerous climate change? 09 Dec 2014, 11:30Simon Evans. Two degrees? Sounds nice. The reality will be rather different. If we continue to emit ever-greater quantities of CO2 and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, then average global temperatures will rise by 2°C over the next three decades compared to pre-industrial times. Most scientists agree that anything higher is dangerous, though many argue that even this is too much. As the battles to reach an agreement in Paris begin, and with so much at stake, it is perhaps curious that few people really understand what a 2°C rise in average temperatures will mean. When our climate changes so much from day to day, an increase of this seemingly small magnitude appears almost trivial.

Zementindustrie verursacht sechs Prozent. Dienstag, 26. Januar 2016, 08:06 Uhr. About. CO2 emissions from the cement industry constitute 5% (or 1.9 Gt annually) of global anthropogenic CO2 emissions[1].

In 2013, approximately 20% of global CO2 emissions from cement production originated from Europe (EU28)[2]. Given the ambitious energy and climate targets that the EU has proposed and agreed on (40% emissions reduction by 2030[3], 80-95% emissions reduction by 2050), CO2 emissions from energy-intensive industries will need to be eliminated or significantly reduced. CO2 generation is an inherent part of the cement production process, due to the calcination of the most important raw material, limestone (CaCO3 converted to CaO and CO2): about 60 % of the CO2 emissions from cement production are due to this conversion, whereas 40% come from the burning of fuels (which are to a large extent fossil) to provide heat for the clinker production.
