Relevant to Pope Francis recognizing anthropogenic climate change -- and being blasted by climate deniers who are not only more scientifically knowledgeable than the scientists, but also seriously asking "Is the Pope Catholic?" -- this Ramirez cartoon:

Pope in white miter: “The MAJORITY of OUR SCIENTISTS BELIEVE IN ANTHROPOGENIC GLOBAL WARMING...” Scientist in white lab coat: “WE ALSO BELIEVE there is NO GOD.”

1958 scientific prediction of CO2 driven climate change.

Joan, Naomi Kline's prediction would come true under a co-operative partnership type global response to climate change. Thanks for the quote.

350.org points out:

Mentions in Pres. Obama's climate speech last night:

  • Fossil fuels: 0
  • Coal: 0
  • Oil: 0
  • Gas: 0

Does he know what's causing the problem?

"If we can chart a path to post-carbon economy, it will involve gaining a lot of other things. We can have a higher quality of life, more liveable cities, greater equality, heal historical wounds. It can be exciting.

"T'was ever thus".  Too little. Too much. Toodle di do.

Comment by Plinius on August 5, 2015 at 1:53am

And no doubt, within hours you can hear them screaming that Obama's plan goes way too far.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on August 4, 2015 at 7:22pm

Obama's grand new climate plan is an empty shell, designed to make it look as if he's doing something to fight climate change.

On page 637, it says

We expect that the main impact of this rule on the nation’s mix of generation will be to reduce coal-fired generation, but in an amount and by a rate that is consistent with recent historical declines in coal-fired generation. Specifically, from approximately 2005 to 2014, coal-fired generation declined at a rate that was greater than the rate of reduced coal-fired generation that we expect to result from this rulemaking from 2015 to 2030. In addition, under this rule, the trends for all other types of generation, including natural gas-fired generation, nuclear generation, and renewable generation, will remain generally consistent with what their trends would be in the absence of this rule.

James Hansen, the former NASA scientist who has raised increasingly dire climate warnings, called Obama's plan "practically worthless." [emphasis mine]

The Nation, Aug. 3-10, 2015

The United Nations reports that we have 15 years to avert a full-blown water crisis and that, by 2030, demand for water will outstrip supply by 40 percent. Five hundred renowned scientists brought together by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said that our collective abuse of water has caused the earth to enter a “new geologic age,” a “planetary transformation” akin to the retreat of the glaciers more than 11,000 years ago. Already, they reported, a majority of the world’s population lives within a 30-mile radius of water sources that are badly stressed or running out.
