Timeline for Irreversible Climate Change

In YaleGlobal Online, James Hansen writes: "Government 'energy information' departments parrot industry. Partly because of disinformation, the major efforts needed to develop alternative energies have not been made. The reality of limited supply forces prices higher. Eventually, sales volume will begin to decline, but fossil-fuel moguls will make more money than ever."

Seven Myths of Energy Independence

According to Paul Roberts in Mother Jones, "Thoughtful observers have been trying to debunk energy independence since Nixon's time. And yet the dream refuses to die, in no small part because it offers political cover for a whole range of controversial initiatives.... In the doublespeak of today's energy lexicon, says Julia Bovey of the Natural Resources Defense Council, 'energy independence' has become code for 'drill it all.'"

Melting Methane

Volker Mrasek, Der Spiegel, reports: "Researchers have found alarming evidence that the frozen Arctic floor has started to thaw and release long-stored methane gas. The results could be a catastrophic warming of the earth, since methane is a far more potent greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide."

Greenhouse Gases, Carbon Dioxide and Methane, Rise Sharply in 2007

ScienceDaily reports: "Last year alone global levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide, the primary driver of global climate change, increased by 0.6 percent, or 19 billion tons. Additionally methane rose by 27 million tons after nearly a decade with little or no increase. NOAA scientists released these and other preliminary findings today as part of an annual update to the agency's greenhouse gas index, which tracks data from 60 sites around the world."
