Hah, almost forgot about your comment Joan. Pretty ridiculous, and framing it as making sea level rise "illegal"? Brilliant!

 

SB, right on. Narcissistic, egotistic, drunk on our former power and unwilling to accept that we are no longer anywhere near as strong as we once were, yup, that's us! USA, USA!

Madness over sea level rise in North Carolina (via Skeptical Science)

Posted on 29 June 2012 by John Bruno Sleepy North Carolina became an international topic of conversation (and ridicule) this month thanks to our state legislature's bills declaring sea level rise "illegal", or more accurately, insisting that state planning for future sea level be based only on "historical records", meaning tide gage measurments during the last century (translation; there is no acceleration of sea level rise here folks - now move along).

Voluntary Carbon Report To Show Surge In Carbon Funding For Clean C...

COLOGNE | Germany | 30 May 2012 | Indoor pollution from coal-, dung- and wood-burning stoves and fire pits kills nearly two million people each year – including half of all children under the age of five who die from pneumonia – according to the World Bank

Stoves and fire pits also generate hundreds of millions of tons of carbon emissions, which is why one apparently minor finding in Thursday’s sixth annual State of the Voluntary Carbon Markets report may turn out to be one of the more substantial. 

Specifically, the report shows that carbon finance for clean cookstoves soared at least 40% in 2011 – an environmental development hat’s also a development and health win. On the development front, clean cookstoves require less fuel, while on the health front, they don’t cause pneumonia, emphysema, lung cancer, or bronchitis. 

Clean cookstoves, however, don’t come for free. Locally-produced ceramic stoves that burn 40% less fuel cost anywhere from $20 to $60, and higher-end stoves can run to $100 – a pittance for most people in the developed world, but a month’s salary for people across the developing world. 

That’s where carbon markets come in. 

“You could potentially see billions of dollars flowing into this space over the coming years,” says Simon Bishop of the Global Alliance for Clean Cook Stoves, a two-year-old consortium of more than 350 entities that aims to distribute more than 100 million clean cookstoves by the year 2020. The report shows that scores of alliance members have used carbon finance to underwrite their activities, and Bishop says scores of others are looking to follow suit. 

“Carbon finance can be used to tackle a whole variety of barriers that currently prevent the adoption of clean-cook stoves,” he says. “It can be used to improve the design of stoves, to run awareness-raising campaigns, and to support a whole variety of activities that bring down cost so that millions of more homes could potentially afford them.”

Because people have listened to false gods who said go forth and procreate!

Ruth is always busy! I need to catch up here myself. Now that it is summer and I'm not taking classes and stuff.

Comment by Jedi Wanderer on May 24, 2012 at 12:45pm

Wow, just found this group. Ruth, you've been busy! Now I see where you have been hiding out! I'll have to look around quite a bit it seems.

This would make a great bumper sticker.

I sent the washing machine & petrochemical clothing video to a friend who engineers metropolitan water purification systems asking him if that type of pollutant is taken into consideration when designing systems. It was the first time he heard about it. That video is a good reason to only buy cotton, wool, silk, or hemp clothing. I don't understand why lama, alpaca, and other native species aren't used more for wool. I wonder what happens to the hides from all the cows that are slaughtered. Is it ground up and used as animal feed?
