Final call to save the world from 'climate catastrophe' - BBC News
'We are living beyond our means, and no politician is willing to tell us.' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJ1HRGA8g10 - Why we're heading for a 'climate catastrophe' - BBC Newsnight // https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/oct/08/world-leaders-have-moral-obligation-to-act-after-un-climate-report
Their dramatic report on keeping that rise under 1.5 degrees C says the world is now completely off track, heading instead towards 3C.
[...]
Not any more. This new study says that going past 1.5C is dicing with the planet's liveability. And the 1.5C temperature "guard rail" could be exceeded in just 12 years, in 2030.

Keeping to the preferred target of 1.5C above pre-industrial levels will mean "rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society".

It will be hugely expensive - but the window of opportunity remains open.

After three years of research and a week of haggling between scientists and government officials at a meeting in South Korea, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has issued a special report on the impact of global warming of 1.5C.

Heatwave sees record high temperatures around world this week | Environment | The Guardian
From Europe to Africa, extreme and widespread heat raises climate concerns in hottest La Niña year to date on record [...] Last week, a weather station at Ouargla in Algeria’s Sahara Desert, reported a maximum temperature of 51.3C on 5 July, the highest temperature reliably recorded in Africa.

Even when the sun goes down, night is not providing the cooling relief it once did in many parts of the world. At Quriyat, on the coast of Oman, overnight temperatures remained above 42.6C, which is believed to be the highest “low” temperature ever recorded in the world. Downtown Los Angeles also saw a new monthly July minimum overnight record of 26.1C on 7 July.

“In 2015 the government started hacking and slashing at all manner of green policies. This has stopped, and that’s very welcome,” he said.

Richard Black, the director of the Energy and Climate Intelligence Unit thinktank, echoed that view. He said the strategy showed a “sea change” in “top-line thinking about the low carbon economy”, with Theresa May’s government seeing it as an opportunity rather than a cost as it was viewed under David Cameron.

Carbon emissions from warming soils could trigger disastrous feedback loop | Environment | The Guardian
Potential feedback loops, or tipping points, have long been suspected to exist by scientists, and there is some evidence for them in the geological record. What appears to happen is that once warming reaches a certain point, these natural biological factors kick in and can lead to a runaway, and potentially unstoppable, increase in warming. >> Alaska, Siberian Tundra, North South Poles, Brazil Amazon Forest showed in new research, on balance, the Amazonas is a carbon emitter.

Hurricanes: A perfect storm of chance and climate change? - BBC News
Those who have been sceptical of the impact of carbon emissions from human sources on the climate have crowed about the fact that it has been 12 years since a hurricane rated category three or above has made landfall in the US.
But those working in the field believe that measuring the connection between hurricanes and climate change based on the number that make land is hugely mistaken. [...] Rising temperatures lead to warmer air holding more moisture, which causes more intense downpours in a hurricane. The oceans have risen thanks to thermal expansion and glacier melt and this works to increase the dangers posed by storm surges.

It's a fact: climate change made Hurricane Harvey more deadly | Michael E Mann | Opinion | The Guardian
https://theintercept.com/2017/08/28/harvey-didnt-come-out-of-the-blue-now-is-the-time-to-talk-about-climate-change/ - There is a simple thermodynamic relationship known as the Clausius-Clapeyron equation that tells us there is a roughly 3% increase in average atmospheric moisture content for each 0.5C of warming. Sea surface temperatures in the area where Harvey intensified were 0.5-1C warmer than current-day average temperatures, which translates to 1-1.5C warmer than “average” temperatures a few decades ago. That means 3-5% more moisture in the atmosphere. &! https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2017/aug/29/how-did-climate-change-worsen-hurricane-harvey https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/aug/29/houston-harvey-new-orleans-katrina-survivors https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0TCrGtTEQM

Neoliberalism has conned us into fighting climate change as individuals | Martin Lukacs | Environment | The Guardian
Neoliberalism has taken this internalized self-blame and turbocharged it. It tells you that you should not merely feel guilt and shame if you can’t secure a good job, are deep in debt, and are too stressed or overworked for time with friends. You are now also responsible for bearing the burden of potential ecological collapse.

Wie Wissenschaft und Fortschritt unser Menschenbild verändern - Kolumne - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die Wissenschaft hat auch zum Thema Homosexualität Fortschrittliches beizutragen. Für Homosexualität - und für Bisexualität - gilt das gleiche wie für Linkshändigkeit: Sie ist angeboren. Möglicherweise gibt es Menschen mit einer homo- oder bisexuellen genetischen Disposition, die aufgrund von Umwelteinflüssen ein Hetero-Leben führen, aber in einem Punkt sind sich die einschlägig forschenden Wissenschaftler einig: Die Gene - und vielleicht pränatale Hormone - spielen eine zentrale Rolle für die sexuelle Orientierung.

Paradoxerweise nennen gerade diejenigen, die Schwule und Lesben am stärksten ablehnen, Homosexualität gerne "widernatürlich". Auch hier hilft die Wissenschaft: Homosexualität ist durch biologische und physiologische Vorgänge bedingt und damit eben genau das: natürlich. Widernatürlich ist dagegen der Versuch, homosexuelle Menschen mit Umerziehungsmethoden zur Heterosexualität zu bekehren. Weit schlimmer als das, was man all den Linkshändern angetan hat. [...] Religiosität ist kein guter Ratgeber

Europe's extreme June heat clearly linked to climate change, research shows | Environment | The Guardian
Human-caused climate change dramatically increased the likelihood of the extreme heatwave that saw deadly forest fires blazing in Portugal and Spain, new research has shown.

Much of western Europe sweltered earlier in June, and the severe heat in England, France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Switzerland was also made significantly more likely by global warming. Such temperatures will become the norm by 2050, the scientists warned, unless action is taken to rapidly cut carbon emissions.

Smog In Western U.S. Starts Out As Pollution In Asia, Study Says : The Two-Way : NPR
The U.S. is producing less air pollution, but smog levels are still rising in the western U.S. because of pollutants released in Asian countries that then drift over the Pacific Ocean. Researchers say their findings show the importance of a global approach to preserving air quality.

"Scientists found Asian air pollution contributed as much as 65 percent of an increase in Western ozone in recent years," NPR's Rob Schmitz reports from Shanghai. "China and India, where many consumer products are manufactured, are the worst offenders."

Intense future climate change could have a far different impact on the world than current models predict, suggests a thought-provoking new study just out in the journal Science Advances. If atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations were to double in the future, it finds, a major ocean current — one that helps regulate climate and weather patterns all over the world — could collapse. And that could paint a very different picture of the future than what we’ve assumed so far.
