We can stop Climate Disaster . . .

but it takes clear, fact-based thinking.

This site will bring you important developments, interactive educational facilities, and more.

 
Our mission is to educate, inspire and energize people to work together to save our planet  from climate disruption. We analyse, explain and propose policy options to keep temperature rise within acceptable limits.

G7 and Climate

The Group of 7 powerful industrialised nations meeting in Cornwall, UK, on 11-13 June, vowed to cut their greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030 and to protect 30% of global land and marine areas for nature by that date.

They failed to set a firm  date to end the burning of coal, but did agree to halt international funding for coal projects lacking CCS (carbon capture and store) technology. They agreed to stop funding new coal generation in developing countries.

Rich nations had previously (in 2009) pledged to provide $100bn a year to developing nations for climate assistance but delivery has fallen short of the goal.

Save the Last Six!

In 2011 Germany had 17 nuclear reactors, supplying 1/4 of the country’s electricity. Today, 6 remain, all  scheduled to be shut down by the end of 2022. (By contrast, coal-fired plants will operate until 2038).

Climate activists say that the nuclear plants provide safe, dependable electricity and save 70 million tons of CO2 a year. They plan regular demonstrations in front of the remaining plants, hoping to persuade policy makers to keep them running.

CO2 levels in the atmosphere
 
Weekly averages, 30 May 2021: 419.55 ppm
This time last year: 417.46 ppm
10 years ago: 394.43 ppm
Pre-industrial base: 280
Safe level: 350

At the dawn of the industrial revolution, CO2 was at 280 parts per million (ppm) in the atmosphere. By 1958, when the first measurements were made at Mauna Loa in Hawaii, it had reached 315ppm. It raced past 350ppm in 1986 and 400ppm in 2013.

Scientists have warned for more than a decade that concentrations of more than 450ppm risk triggering extreme weather events and temperature rises as high as 2C, beyond which the effects of global heating are likely to become catastrophic and irreversible.
