Desmog TV: time is running out

Here's the latest episode of DeSmog TV. Sorry, all you Emily fans, but this one mainly uses Arctic sea ice satellite imagery courtesy of NASA.

Don’t agree with the ethanol piece in the video as a solution at all but a good reminder of how fast we are losing the ice now. Thanks.

On the ethanol question. I considered not putting it in, but many people see it as a part, albeit a small part, of the solution. 

Glad you liked the video, I am thinking of doing a series of videos like this highighting the effects and solutions. 

Have you ever heard of air powered cars?
I've heard of water-powered. The only air-powered car I know is my old VW Rabbit – I'm always pushing it to the nearest garage!
Laughs, that would be powered by a carbon based fuel running on a enzyme catalized energy releasing pathway :p Slow accelation but great milage I bet.
Have you ever met Kevin — high carbon output, slow acceleration, very inefficient!
Ethanol, just consider that oil is a finite resource, without regard to any other environmental issues or climate change. Finding fuels and various other alternatives on their own is a persuit worth considering. I realize there is some question over the exact amount of energy gained by using ethanol and emissions from burning it, but changing from oil to other sources of energy is a process. The ability of any single fuel to replace oil is not possible but energy and fuel diversity are likely to be pushed much harder in years to come.

NASA scientists have brought to life the invisible carbon emissions floating around the atmosphere in a vivid, swirling simulation.

The “Year in The Life of Earth’s CO2” computer model is the first to show in such fine detail how carbon dioxide in the atmosphere moves across the globe.

The new model clearly shows that carbon is not distributed uniformly across the globe. Wind carries away the long streams of emissions spewing out of North America, Europe and Asia, with much of it winding up above the Arctic....
