We can stop Climate Disaster . . .
but it takes clear, fact-based thinking.
What's happening now
Hot and thirsty?
Europe its in the throes of its worst drought ever.
Wildfires throughout France have forced the evacuation of 10,000 residents. Spain's water reserves are at all-time low. Italy's River Po is two meters below its normal level. Belgium reported the driest July since 1885.
Rivers and lakes are drying up. Dairy products and crop yields are suffering.
Even the cool, rainy UK recorded a record temperature of over 40° C.
Scientists predict that temperatures in Europe will continue to rise.
This is the reality of climate change.
CO2 in our atmosphere
In June 2022, the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere shot up to levels not seen for 4 million years.
Scientists measured a concentration of 420.99 parts per million (ppm) at NOAA’s mountaintop observatory in Hawaii, an increase of 1.8 ppm since 2021.
Climate Trace may be the ultimate tool to battle emissions. It’s being built by experts in climate science and technology, and will be able to provide transparent emissions estimates on a monthly, weekly, and possibly even daily basis.
Scientists will see more detail about methane and nitrous oxide and their effects on the physics and chemistry of weather. They’ll be able to locate the quantities and locations of these gasses. Read more...
Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.
We Europeans need nuclear power!
Ten European countries have launched a plea in favor of nuclear power, arguing that nuclear energy must be included in the "green taxonomy" drawn up by the European Commission.
The IPCC is clear: our objective of limiting our warming to 1.5° or 2°C in the 21st century can only be achieved if we drastically reduce our greenhouse gas emissions in the next eight years.
The statement was signed by France, Romania, the Czech Republic, Finland, Slovakia, Croatia, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Poland and Hungary. Source
