An Underground Fossil Forest Offers Clues on Climate Change.
2012-05-11 03:01:00
They've discovered a veritable time capsule! In the clammy depths of a southern Illinois coal mine lies the largest fossil forest ever discovered, at least 50 times as extensive as the previous contender. Scientists are exploring dripping passages by the light of headlamps, mapping out an ecosystem from 307 million years ago, just before the world's first great forests were wiped out by global warming. This vast prehistoric landscape may shed new light on climate change today. "Effectively you've got a lost world," said Howard Falcon-Lang, a paleontologist at Royal Holloway, University of London, who has explored the site. "It's the closest thing you'll find to time travel," he added. Simply amazing....

Whole Foods is throwin' down with Sustainable Fishing.
2012-05-11 03:01:00
Good for Whole Foods : Standing on the deck of his rusted steel trawler, Naz Sanfilippo fumed about the latest bad news for New England fishermen: a decision by Whole Foods to stop selling any seafood it does not consider sustainable. Starting Sunday, gray sole and skate, common catches in the region, will no longer appear in the grocery chain's artfully arranged fish cases. Atlantic cod, a New England staple, will be sold only if it is not caught by trawlers, which drag nets across the ocean floor, a much-used method here. "It's totally maddening," Mr. Sanfilippo said. They're just doing it to make all the green people happy." No, Mr. Sanfilippo, they're doing it so that our kids have fish to eat when they grow up...that's why they're doing it. Good for Whole Foods!

65% of Americans want action on Climate Change.
2012-05-11 03:01:00
Sustainable Business is reporting that a large majority of Americans want to take action to combat Climate Change : 62% of Americans now believe that man-made climate change is occurring, according to the biannual National Survey of American Public Opinion on Climate Change, commissioned by the Brookings Institute. That's up from the low of 50% in spring 2010, but it's still far down from the 75% who believed it in 2008. A majority of Americans (65%) also want mandatory controls on greenhouse gas emissions, but there's still a partisan divide. 82% of Democrats favor it, but only 50% of Republicans do, according to the latest Gallup poll. The conclusion: The GOP is not representing the public in its outright denial of climate change and related action. GOP lawmakers oppose carbon emissions controls much more than their constituents. Indeed, the GOP (aka Republican) representatives are not properly representing the 50% of their constituents who want to take action to combat ...

A recycling Czar for New York City - hooray!
2012-05-11 03:01:00
It's about time, eh? In a sign that New York City is getting serious about improving its poor recycling record, the city's Department of Sanitation is appointing a recycling industry innovator as its new "deputy commissioner for recycling and sustainability." The department plans to formally announce next week that Ron Gonen, 37, is assuming the newly created position to help the Bloomberg administration meet its goal of at least doubling the city's recycling rate from the current 15 percent by the year 2017. Mr. Gonen is a founder of Recyclebank, a company that awards points to consumers for recycling that they can redeem at local and national restaurants, stores and other retailers. He is also a co-founder of an environmental services firm that helps bring renewable energy to sport stadiums . This is great news to get NYC crankin' towards the #1 slot in the country with regard to Green Initiatives. So far, San Francisco is kickin' our butts!

Today is Earth Day!
2012-05-11 03:01:00
Yippee! Celebrate! Respect the environment! Save the planet for the next generations! The idea came to Earth Day founder Gaylord Nelson, then a U.S. Senator from Wisconsin, after witnessing the ravages of the 1969 massive oil spill in Santa Barbara, California. Inspired by the student anti-war movement, he realized that if he could infuse that energy with an emerging public consciousness about air and water pollution, it would force environmental protection onto the national political agenda. Senator Nelson announced the idea for a "national teach-in on the environment" to the national media; persuaded Pete McCloskey, a conservation-minded Republican Congressman, to serve as his co-chair; and recruited Denis Hayes as national coordinator. Hayes built a national staff of 85 to promote events across the land. As a result, on the 22nd of April, 20 million Americans took to the streets, parks, and auditoriums to demonstrate for a healthy, sustainable environment in massive coast-to...

More news from the U.N. that human activity is contributing to Climate Chan
2012-04-05 08:14:00
The evidence keeps piling up: At least some of the weather extremes being seen around the world are consequences of human-induced climate change and can be expected to worsen in coming decades, a United Nations panel reported on Friday. It is particularly likely that greenhouse gas emissions related to human activity have already led to more record-high temperatures and fewer record lows, as well as to more extremes of precipitation and to greater coastal flooding, the report said. Whether inland flooding is getting worse because of human influence is murkier, the report said. Nor can any firm conclusion be drawn at this point about the human influence on hurricanes, typhoons, hail storms or tornadoes. And where's the largest economy (U.S.) in the world (more than twice as large as the next economy - China) stand on this issue? It's nowhere to be found: In 2008, both the Democratic and Republican candidates for president, Barack Obama and John McCain, warned about man-made gl...

U.S. geothermal resources are 10 times greater than coal.
2012-04-05 08:14:00
Check out this fascinating map out by Google: Imagine a renewable energy resource capable of producing more than 10 times the energy of the installed capacity of coal in the US. That?s the potential for Geothermal Energy in the United States, according to a recently completed 3-year project supported by Google.org to update the Geothermal Map of North America from 2004. TalkingPointsMemo has more, too: As part of that effort, the Mountain View, California-based company's philanthropic arm, "Google.org," on Tuesday published a new Google Earth map of the geothermal resources in the continental United States, created from data collected by the Geothermal Laboratory at Southern Methodist University (SMU) in Dallas, Texas, which received a $489,521 grant from Google for the project. The new map, an update of a running one that SMU scientists prepared in 2004 and 1992, estimates that the technical potential of geothermal in the U.S. is nearly 3 million megawatts (2,980,295), or 10...

Solar-powered car ports coming to a parking lot near you!
2012-04-05 08:14:00
Slowly but surely we continue to evolve towards a non-petroleum based driving culture. Granted, it's going to take decades, but it's beginning to emerge: Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations are beginning to sprout up in the United States as the push for electric cars accelerates. With that effort, however, comes a growing concern that a surge in EV adoption will overload the existing power grid unless something is done to manage when charging occurs -- or to offset or entirely avoid such a drain. By integrating EVs into home energy systems, an electric car could serve as potential power source to "give back" to the grid when necessary. With solar power also in a home, the energy system could supplement the grid rather than draw from it. A solar-powered carport charging system could do the same. It looks like General Electric is leading the charge in this area: General Electric and Inovateus Solar are working together to offer solar-powered carports equipped with charging s...

Arctic ice continues to disappear at an increasing rate.
2012-04-05 08:14:00
Check out the graph below and try to claim that climate change is a myth: The chart is from the National Ice & Snow Data Center, which also had this to say: Arctic sea ice extent averaged for August 2011 reached the second lowest level for the month in the 1979 to 2011 satellite record. Both the Northwest Passage and the Northern Sea route appear to be open. Throughout August, sea ice extent tracked near the record lows of 2007, underscoring the continued decline in Arctic ice cover. Including 2011 the linear trend for August now stands at -9.3% per decade. Sea ice is now almost completely gone from the channels of the Northwest Passage, with the exception of a small strip of ice across a stretch of the Parry Channel. The southern route (Amunden's Route) is ice free. According to the Canadian Ice Service, sea ice extent in the western Parry Channel is now the lowest at this time of year since record keeping began in 1966 and very little multi-year ice remains. According to Mu...
How this disastrous debt bill will affect energy programs in the U.S. Gover
2012-04-05 08:14:00
From an article in yesterday's Politico.com: Popular energy and environmental programs should prepare for a decade of spending cuts under the debt deal reached late Sunday between the White House and congressional leaders. Constituencies fighting in the trenches for every dollar insist that their programs are small relative to other big-ticket items in the annual appropriations process. But there's still plenty of concern that everything from wastewater grants to air pollution monitoring and biofuels research and development will face the scalpel as lawmakers start cutting about $2.7 trillion in spending over the next decade. It goes on to list just a few of the programs slated to be gutted by this Republican-led extortion, sanctioned by the moderate conservative in the White House: James Walsh, a former New York Republican congressman and chairman of the House Appropriations subcommittee that handled the EPA's budget, predicted spending cuts for Energy Department programs de...

What the Heck Happened in Durban?
2012-04-05 08:14:00
The worlds' powers met again recently in Durban, South Africa, and tried to hash out a deal to curb greenhouse gases that are changing (i.e. warming up) our environment. How did they do? The folks over at Greenbiz.com tried to get their hands around it: The so-called Durban platform is a promise to negotiate a new climate deal by 2015 to replace the Kyoto protocol and take effect in 2020. It's a commitment to "a process to develop a protocol, another legal instrument or an outcome with legal force under the Convention applicable to all Parties." (If this doesn't strike you as faintly ridiculous, you've been spending too much time at the UN.) In essence, all the parties agreed to sit down during the next session and actually hammer out a legally-binding document that all polluters would be beholden to. But is that going to happen, and should they just be focused on reducing emissions --- or setting new policies? Negotiations that focus on setting targets for emissions are unl...
Same Hacker, Same Story: Humans are causing Climate Change.
2012-04-05 08:14:00
No big deal here, except that another crime has been committed: The anonymous hacker who shook the world of climate science two years ago by posting a trove of stolen e-mails delivered a new batch on Tuesday, stirring up climate-change contrarians a little more than a week before global negotiations on greenhouse gases are to begin in Durban, South Africa. But from the source (University of East Anglia), we have this: If genuine, (the sheer volume of material makes it impossible to confirm at present that they are all genuine) these emails have the appearance of having been held back after the theft of data and emails in 2009 to be released at a time designed to cause maximum disruption to the imminent international climate talks. This appears to be a carefully-timed attempt to reignite controversy over the science behind climate change when that science has been vindicated by three separate independent inquiries and number of studies -- including, most recently, the Berkeley Ea...

Solar For All!

It looks like there might be hope for some bi-partisan legislation coming out of Congress after all...at least in support of the solar industry here in America. The folks over at The Mother Nature Network have the skinny: HR 2599 is the PACE Assessment Protection Act of 2011, a House bill co-sponsored by 14 Republicans and 11 Democrats that would restore Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) funding programs, which were kiboshed last year by Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. Still not clear? Okay. So PACE was a brilliant bit of funding wizardry pioneered out in sunny California. The ever-informative Todd Woody of Forbes has a tidy little summary for you: The program, pioneered by the city of Berkeley, Calif., allows municipalities to float bonds to finance the installation of home solar arrays and other energy efficiency projects. Homeowners avoid the five-figure upfront cost of going solar and pay back the money through an annual surcharge on their property tax bill, typically over...

NASA weighs in on Climate Change - again.
2012-04-05 08:14:00
NASA has a new report out detailing how human-induced Climate Change will affect ecosystems around the world: By 2100, global climate change will modify plant communities covering almost half of Earth's land surface and will drive the conversion of nearly 40 percent of land-based ecosystems from one major ecological community type - such as forest, grassland or tundra - toward another, according to a new NASA and university computer modeling study. This section of the report was particularly troubling: To study the sensitivity of Earth's ecological systems to climate change, the scientists used a computer model that predicts the type of plant community that is uniquely adapted to any climate on Earth. This model was used to simulate the future state of Earth's natural vegetation in harmony with climate projections from 10 different global climate simulations. These simulations are based on the intermediate greenhouse gas scenario in the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel...

Bloomie tries to bring NYC recycling efforts up to speed.
2012-04-05 08:14:00
New York City still lags behind other major metropolitan cities in the U.S. when it comes to comprehensive recycling efforts. But at least some sort of effort is being made to catch up: The Bloomberg administration has set a goal of doubling the amount of garbage it diverts from landfills over the next five years. "If we're going to be the most innovative city in the world, we also have to be the greenest ? because that's how you attract the most talented individuals and most forward-looking companies," Mayor Bloomberg is expected to say in his prepared remarks. Well...duh! The efforts still fall far short of what many other American cities are doing, but environmentalists who have followed the New York's waste management over the years said they were cautiously optimistic. "It's encouraging to hear the mayor's personal commitment to issues that have not received the attention that they've deserved," said Eric A. Goldstein, a senior lawyer with the Natural Resources Defen...

Climate Change will sink the coastal U.S.
2012-04-05 08:14:00
It's just a matter of time: About 3.7 million Americans live within a few feet of high tide and risk being hit by more frequent coastal flooding in coming decades because of the sea level rise caused by global warming, according to new research. If the pace of the rise accelerates as much as expected, researchers found, coastal flooding at levels that were once exceedingly rare could become an every-few-years occurrence by the middle of this century. And which state is the most prone for massive disruption along the coast because of Global Warming? By far the most vulnerable state is Florida, the new analysis found, with roughly half of the nation's at-risk population living near the coast on the porous, low-lying limestone shelf that constitutes much of that state. But Louisiana, California, New York and New Jersey are also particularly vulnerable, researchers found, and virtually the entire American coastline is at some degree of risk.

James Cameron becomes 3rd human to dive to the deepest hole in the ocean.

Simply amazing! At noon, local time, James Cameron 's "vertical torpedo" sub broke the surface of the western Pacific, carrying the National Geographic explorer and filmmaker back from the Mariana Trench's Challenger Deep -- Earth's deepest, and perhaps most alien, realm. The first human to reach the 6.8-mile-deep (11-kilometer-deep) undersea valley solo, Cameron arrived at the bottom with the tech to collect scientific data, specimens, and visions unthinkable in 1960, when the only other manned Challenger Deep dive took place, according to members of the National Geographic expedition. Before surfacing about 300 miles (500 kilometers) southwest of Guam, Cameron spent hours hovering over Challenger Deep's desert -- like seafloor and gliding along its cliff walls, the whole time collecting samples and video. Among the 2.5-story-tall sub's tools are a sediment sampler, a robotic claw, a "slurp gun" for sucking up small seacreatures for study at the surface, and temperature, sa...

Let's hope this sucker never reaches us: A monster "tornado" big enough to swallow a hundred Earths has been spied on the sun, according to astronomers who analyzed recent images from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory. "The structure is huge ... and the velocity of the material is several tens to hundreds of thousands of kilometers per hour," said Xing Li, an astronomer at Aberystwyth University in Wales, who co-authored a new study describing the vortex. "It is a real gem of an event to fire the imagination -- and it is a good way to study magnetic structures in the sun's atmosphere." A real gem, indeed! Make sure to check out the video here.

Carbon sequestering.
2008-06-11 00:00:00
As the country inches towards a renewable energy model which will hopefully wean us from our addiction to oil, the most pressing need will be for more electricity for our plug-in hybrids. But where is that electricity going to come from? Coal - which unfortunately leads to more carbon spewed into the atmosphere unless we find a way to capture it: Capturing carbon from these plants may become a lot more important soon. Emissions from coal-fired power plants already account for about 27 percent of American greenhouse emissions, but as prices for other fuels rise, along with power demand, utilities will burn more coal. And if cars someday run on batteries, a trend that $4-a-gallon gasoline will accelerate, then the utilities will burn even more fuel to generate the electricity to recharge those batteries. It's much easier to control the carbon emitted by a few hundred power plants than from the millions of cars and chimneys cranking out the stuff now. The only problem is that we have...

Arctic Ice Shelf is cracking up...
2008-05-26 00:00:00
It's happening faster than anyone has expected: Dramatic evidence of the break-up of the Arctic ice-cap has emerged from research during an expedition by the Canadian military. Scientists travelling with the troops found major new fractures during an assessment of the state of giant ice shelves in Canada's far north. According to another scientist on the expedition, Dr Luke Copland of the University of Ottawa, "We're seeing very dramatic changes; from the retreat of the glaciers, to the melting of the sea ice. "We had 23% less (sea ice) last year than we've ever had, and what's happening to the ice shelves is part of that picture." And yet another researcher, Derek Mueller of Trent University, Ontario, remarked: "I was astonished to see these new cracks. It means the ice shelf is disintegrating, the pieces are pinned together like a jigsaw but could float away." It seems like every new discovery up there just reinforces the idea that the Arctic is just melting away...

Sports subsidies: A New York Yankees Case Study
2008-05-26 00:00:00
David Kay Johnston, in his new book, "Free Lunch: How the Wealthiest Americans Enrich Themselves at Government Expense (and Stick You with the Bill)," talks about the extent that tax-payer subsidies support Major League sports in this country, with particular attention to the new Yankees stadium being built in The Bronx. In a recent interview with Amy Goodman at Democracy Now!, he pointed out, Now, in this country right now, we are spending $2 billion a year subsidizing the big four sports: baseball, basketball, football and hockey. It accounts for all of the profits of that industry and more. Now, there may be individual teams that make money, but the industry as a whole is not profitable. And that's astonishing because the big four leagues are exempt from the laws of competition. By the way, irony is not dead, because here are people who are in the business of competition on the field who are exempted by law from the rules of economic competition.

Earth Day - Why Bother?
2008-05-01 00:00:00
In case you missed it, on Earth Day last week Michael Pollan, author of "The Omnivore's Dilemma" and ''In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto," wrote an extraordinary essay that dares to refute the current malaise by some towards Global Warming. It starts out: Why bother? That really is the big question facing us as individuals hoping to do something about climate change, and it's not an easy one to answer. I don't know about you, but for me the most upsetting moment in "An Inconvenient Truth" came long after Al Gore scared the hell out of me, constructing an utterly convincing case that the very survival of life on earth as we know it is threatened by climate change. No, the really dark moment came during the closing credits, when we are asked to . . . change our light bulbs. That's when it got really depressing. The immense disproportion between the magnitude of the problem Gore had described and the puniness of what he was asking us to do about it was enough to sink you...

Rethinking the Meat-Guzzler
2008-04-16 00:00:00
Back in January, there was a very comprehensive article in the NY Times detailing the environmental costs that meat-eaters generate whenever they order that steak or hamburger. Little known to most people, the meat industry contributes mightily to global warming: Gidon Eshel, a geophysicist at the Bard Center, and Pamela A. Martin, an assistant professor of geophysics at the University of Chicago, calculated in a published paper that if Americans were to reduce meat consumption by just 20 percent it would be as if we all switched from a standard sedan -- a Camry, say -- to the ultra-efficient Prius. Similarly, a study last year by the National Institute of Livestock and Grassland Science in Japan estimated that 2.2 pounds of beef is responsible for the equivalent amount of carbon dioxide emitted by the average European car every 155 miles, and burns enough energy to light a 100-watt bulb for nearly 20 days. How much meat do we Americans consume? Americans are downing close to 20...

NY State Assembly kills congestion pricing.
2008-04-09 00:00:00
Well, that victory was short-lived...dang it! Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg's ambitious dream to remake New York City streets with an elaborate plan for congestion pricing appeared to die Monday in a private conference room on the third floor of the State Capitol. It was there that Democratic members of the State Assembly , who control the chamber, held one final meeting to debate the merits of Mr. Bloomberg's plan, ultimately conferring -- in secret -- before Sheldon Silver, the speaker, emerged to announce the outcome. The opposition was so overwhelming, he said, that he would not hold an open vote of the full Assembly, though many Republicans were supportive of Mr. Bloomberg. It's pretty outrageous that the speaker, Sheldon Silver, wouldn't even hold an open vote on one of the biggest environmental issues this city has faced in the new century. Our representatives are supposed to be employed by us, but how can we decide if we want to keep someone in their job if they vote in s...

New York City Council approves congestion pricing plan
2008-04-02 00:00:00
Big news out of City Hall: Shortly before 7:30 p.m., the New York City Council approved a measure urging state lawmakers to vote in favor of Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg's congestion pricing proposal. The congestion pricing plan, as approved by a 17-member state commission that voted at the end of January, would charge drivers with an E-ZPass $8 a day to enter Manhattan below 60th Street on weekdays from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Those drivers would also receive a credit for bridge or tunnel tolls they paid on the same day. Drivers without an E-ZPass would pay $9 and would not receive credit for tolls. The plan is similar to one proposed by Mayor Bloomberg last April -- but that plan would have established a northern boundary at 86th Street and included a $4 charge for car trips within the congestion zone. The mayor has noted that the city will qualify for $354 million in federal grants for mass transit improvements if congestion pricing is approved. This is great news, said Michael O'L...

Antarctic ice shelf melting faster than expected
2008-03-31 00:00:00
What was expected to take 15 years - a certain part of the Antarctic ice shelf dropping off into the sea - is happening right now: Satellite imagery from the National Snow and Ice Data Center at the University of Colorado at Boulder reveals that a 13,680 square kilometer (5,282 square mile) ice shelf has begun to collapse because of rapid climate change in a fast-warming region of Antarctica. The Western Antarctica has experienced the fastest warming on the planet over the past 50 years, increasing by almost a degree Fahrenheit each decade! This portion of the ice shelf - called The Wilkens - has been there for about 1500 years, but is now, today as we speak, is dropping off into the ocean, sheared in a straight line: Cheng-Chien Liu, of Taiwan's National Cheng-Kung University, said, "It looks as if something is slicing the ice shelf piece by piece on an incredible scale, kilometers long but only a few hundred meters in width."

In case you need statistics at the ready (like when you're having a wonderful discussion with a Global Warming Denier), our friends over at The National Geographic website provide the following: ? Average temperatures have climbed 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit (0.8 degree Celsius) around the world since 1880, much of this in recent decades, according to NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies. ? The rate of warming is increasing. The 20th century's last two decades were the hottest in 400 years and possibly the warmest for several millennia, according to a number of climate studies. And the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports that 11 of the past 12 years are among the dozen warmest since 1850. ? Arctic ice is rapidly disappearing, and the region may have its first completely ice-free summer by 2040 or earlier. Polar bears and indigenous cultures are already suffering from the sea-ice loss. ?
