The biggest story of our time is climate change. The stunningly severe and unprecedented extreme weather events of the past few years are just a early harbinger of the civilization-shaking events our increasingly hostile and violent atmosphere will throw at us, as Earth’s climate responds as it must to the huge changes humans have wrought.

Governments are ALSO controlled by capitalism.. witness the continuing billions of dollars given in subsidies to fossil fuel companies that are  destroying the planet. DIRECT ACTION IS THE ONLY WAY!

Indigenous Vow: We’ll Be ‘Dead Or In Prison Before We Allow’ Keystone Pipeline

On February 27, Oglala Lakota and  American Indian Movement activists joined in a four-directions walk to commemorate Liberation Day, an event to mark the 1890 massacre at Wounded Knee. As they do each year, four groups gather to the north, south, east and west and then walk eight miles until converging on top of Wounded Knee, where they honor the fallen warriors and the tribe’s rich history of resistance……

…………The Oglala Lakota Nation is actively fighting the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. This 1,700-mile pipeline, which would carry 830,000 barrels of crude oil each day from western Canada through South Dakota en route to Texas. At two points it would even intersect with a pipeline that serves as a main water source for the Sioux Nation, affecting all of the Pine Ridge reservation as well as the nearby Rosebud reservation.

Well that’s just what the Climate Criminals are doing, right under our noses, and they even have us paying them subsidies of $500 billion a years to do it. Continue reading

The fossil fuel companies get grants and subsidies of over 500,000,000,000 dollars of public money a year, on top of their already obscene profits, while paying ZERO for the destruction of the earth and oceans, climate chaos and millions of air pollution deaths every year.

Fracking is coming to a neighbourhood near you soon. From Brent to Balcombe, to Patagonia and Pungesti, the frackers are moving in. Communities are resisting but they are up against an alliance of the state and big corporations.

Drawing on authoritative sources, this concise, up-to-date and information-packed handbook analyses the dangers of fracking. There are a range of proposals to tackle the eco-social crisis facing us all.

National Geographic has a good, but disturbing, interactive map showing what 216 feet of sea level rise will do to coastlines around the world.

The maps here show the world as it is now, with only one difference: All the ice on land has melted and drained into the sea, raising it 216 feet and creating new shorelines for our continents and inland seas.

England decimated, Denmark, Belgium and the Netherlands to Disappear.

Typhoons are heat engines.. there’s a direct link between severity and sea temperatures.. there’s also a direct link between sea temperatures and levels of CO2 released into the atmosphere. Typhoons are normal, super typhoons of unprecedented power are fueled by Climate Change. Responsible for the deaths of at least 5000 innocent people, and the horrific destruction caused by Haiyan/Yolanda are the companies who get over $500 billion a year subsidies on top of their profits to extract and burn fossil fuels when cheap renewables are available.

Typhoon Yolanda or Haiyan is about to strike the southern Phillipine islands as ”one of the most intense tropical cyclones in world history, with sustained winds an incredible 190 mph, gusting to 230 mph, said the Joint Typhoon Warning Center in their 15 UTC (10 am EST) November 7, 2013 advisory.” (Dr. Jeff Masters’ WunderBlog)

US Capitalism..  racing to a cliff with Faster Growth and less Brakes

'You can't trust humans with power over others. We need to refuse to obey at all levels and decide everything with direct assembly democracy. If not Capitalism always wins.''

‘You can’t trust humans with power over others. We need to refuse to obey at all levels and decide everything with direct assembly democracy. If not Capitalism always wins.”

leaders remain wedded to economic metrics that say little about the well-being of humans and the environment.

Last month the Associated Press reported that the income gap in the United States broke a new record in 2012, with the 1 percent grabbing a greater share of total household wealth than ever before in history.

This news follows on the heels of the fact that the 1 percent not only captured all of the income gains during the first two years of the economic recovery, but also stole a portion of the already-existing incomes of the bottom 99 percent, causing median household income to decline despite overall economic growth.

When it suits its purposes, Russia seems to have the same propensity as the US to thumb its nose at international law. Two weeks ago, Putin acquired immense international stature and prestige by halting the imminent threat of US missile strikes in Syria. Now he seems to have squandered it all by illegally seizing a Greenpeace vessel in international waters. Continue reading

Greenhouse gas emissions explained, in seven balloons

greenhousegases

In 2010, human activity caused 50 gigatonnes of CO2 equivalent in emissions.The emissions were 76 percent carbon dioxide, 16 percent methane, 8 percent nitrous oxide, and 2 percent F-gases.

The biggest emitters were China (23 percent), the U.S. (14 percent), Europe (10 percent), India (5 percent), and Russia (5 percent).

And the primary sources of emissions were energy (35 percent), industry (18 percent), transport (13 percent), agriculture (11 percent), forestry (11 percent), buildings (8 percent), and waste (4 percent). The sources are explained in more detail in the balloons. Continue reading
