Nobel Panel: Six Years to Change Course or Face Ruin!

World carbon emissions must start to decline in only six years if humanity is to stand a chance of preventing “unmanageable climate risks”, according to a memorandum, signed by 20 Nobel laureates in physics, chemistry, economics, peace and literature.

Even a warmer and believer-Roger Pielke Jr.- says that this is an “embarrassment”. (Sorry, when I link or cut and paste to this article the spam filter will not allow me to post. Just google “Prometheus”.)

There is nothing constant in this world except for change. We always need to change but it must be change for the better. Right now the world is in need of positive change because of the recession that we have today. Fiat, the Italian motor company, has been subject of a lot of coverage lately. Fiat is involved in the Chrysler bankruptcy; the two auto industry giants are considering a merger. During Chrysler’s proceedings, the CEO flew in personally from Italy, and made sure he didn’t need more in personal loans to get the deal moving. Italy has been hard hit along with many nations. This is not the first time Italy has been hit with something. Italy was hit with the Vesuvius eruption, that destroyed Pompeii many years ago. Fiat has been in business for over 100 years, and doesn’t need a lot of credit repair on reputation.

Why is spam so badly written?

(I’m starting to get bored now).

… it’s SPAM.  I do my best to clean them out, Richard, but they seem to be a fact of blog life.

Can anyone out there suggest an effective way of filtering these guys out?

This kind of warning is pretty much always ignored.

People often cite the cfc ozone thing as an example of responding to a warning and making  changes, but that isn’t a fair example because it was easy and cheap. No one had to do without air conditioning or even spray on deodorant. For myself there were no changes required - nothing at all.

On the other hand getting 7 billion people to stop burning stuff is a big deal - too big. The math is just too hard to do. The math is easy to write down though.

 population = carbon and population x prosperity = more carbon

Burning stuff to release energy>shivering in the cold

Therefore  meaningful carbon reduction will only happen as a result of massive depopulation or extreme worldwide poverty.

Population and consumption are the ultimate causes of climate change and practically every other global environmental problem we have to face.

I can’t for the life of me see why both are ignored by most scientists pushing for measures to reduce CO2 emissions.

good changes to hear. The number of Americans who believe there is solid evidence that the Earth is warming because of pollution is at its lowest point in three years, according to a survey released Thursday. The poll of 1,500 adults by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press found that only 57 percent believe there is strong scientific evidence that the Earth has gotten warmer over the past few decades, and as a result, people are viewing the problem as less serious. That’s down from 77 percent in 2006.
