James Lovelock profile BBC4

Eco_Living

If you didn't see the James Lovelock profile on BBC4 last night then I really recommend it ( click here to see it on iPlayer - I don't think it's available outside the UK). The real star was the 90 year old Lovelock himself who told his story with good humour. Btw you can see my profile of Lovelock on Green Gurus here. Tags: james lovelock gaia theory bbc

How Humanity can act on Moving Planet Day

Green Blog

A key sponsor is 350.org which wants atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration to be no more than 350 parts per million (ppm). 300.org, which demands that atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) be returned ASAP to 300 parts per million (ppm) from the current 394 ppm (increasing at 2.4 Both Dr James Lovelock FRS (Gaia hypothesis) and Professor Kevin Anderson (Director, Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, University of Manchester, UK) have recently estimated that only about 0.5

Climate Racism, Climate Injustice & Copenhagen Greenhouse Gas Reduction Proposals

Green Blog

The bottom line in the Copenhagen Climate Summit should be (a) equal per capita greenhouse gas emissions for everyone and (b) an additional but equitable penalty for First World countries for their disproportionately huge historical contribution to atmospheric carbon pollution. A return to circa 300 ppm CO2 will mean drawdown of CO2 from the atmosphere i.e. NEGATIVE CO2 emissions are inescapably required.

The Earth is a Sentient Living Organism

James Lovelock published in a book in 1979 providing many useful lessons about the interaction of physical, chemical, geological, and biological processes on Earth. James Hutton (1726-1797), the father of geology, once described the Earth as a kind of superorganism.

Shocking analysis by country of years left to zero emissions

Green Blog

Indeed top climate scientists and biologists are telling us that reaching zero emissions is not enough – we then have to reduce atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration from the current 394 parts per million (ppm) to 350 ppm (according to 350.org ) and thence to 300 ppm ( according to the latest science-informed 300.org ). The analysis below will tell you how many years your country has left before it exceeds its “fair share” of atmospheric GHG pollution.

Accountability of People, Politicians, Corporations and Countries for War Crimes and Climate Crimes

These and other top climate scientists and biologists are stating clearly that the atmospheric CO2 concentration must be urgently returned to 300-350 ppm for planetary safety. Photo credit: andriux-uk.
