Robber fly - Nature photographer Thomas Shahan specializes in amazing portraits of tiny insects. It isn't easy. Shahan says that this Robber Fly (Holcocephala fusca), for instance, is "skittish" and doesn't like its picture taken.

“… 4 - Energy (again)


The natural resources of the planet are finite and will not support the continuation of what you've been doing. We've been saying this for a decade. Watch for increased science and increased funding for alternate ways of creating electricity (finally). Watch for the very companies who have the most to lose being the ones who fund it. It is the beginning of a full realization that a change of thinking is at hand. You can take things from Gaia that are energy, instead of physical resources. We speak yet again about geothermal, about tidal, about wind. Again, we plead with you not to over-engineer this. For one of the things that Human Beings do in a technological age is to over-engineer simple things. Look at nuclear - the most over-engineered and expensive steam engine in existence!

Your current ideas of capturing energy from tidal and wave motion don't have to be technical marvels. Think paddle wheel on a pier with waves, which will create energy in both directions [waves coming and going] tied to a generator that can power dozens of neighborhoods, not full cities. Think simple and decentralize the idea of utilities. The same goes for wind and geothermal. Think of utilities for groups of homes in a cluster. You won't have a grid failure if there is no grid. This is the way of the future, and you'll be more inclined to have it sooner than later if you do this, and it won't cost as much….”

Obama unveils landmark regulations to combat climate change
In a bid to combat climate change, US President Barack Obama announced the Clean Power Plan on Monday, marking the first time power plants have been targeted by mandatory regulations on carbon dioxide emissions in the US.

Global warming 'underestimated'

BBC 


The severity of global warming over the next century will be much worse than previously believed, a leading climate scientist has warned.


Professor Chris Field, an author of a 2007 landmark report on climate change, said future temperatures "will be beyond anything" predicted.



Prof Field said rising temperatures could thaw Arctic permafrost


Prof Field said the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report had underestimated the rate of change.


He said warming is likely to cause more environmental damage than forecast.


Speaking at the American Science conference in Chicago, Prof Field said fresh data showed greenhouse gas emissions between 2000 and 2007 increased far more rapidly than expected.


"We are basically looking now at a future climate that is beyond anything that we've considered seriously in climate policy," he said.


Prof Field said the 2007 report, which predicted temperature rises between 1.1C and 6.4C over the next century, seriously underestimated the scale of the problem.


He said the increases in carbon dioxide have been caused, principally, by the burning of coal for electric power in India and China.


Wildfires


Prof Field said the impact on temperatures is as yet unknown, but warming is likely to accelerate at a much faster pace and cause more environmental damage than had been predicted.


The BBC's science reporter Matt McGrath says the most recent data is also worrying because it threatens to kick-start what climate scientists call negative feedback effects.


Prof Field says that a warming planet will dry out forests in tropical areas making them much more likely to suffer from wildfires.


The rising temperatures could also speed up the melting of the permafrost, vastly increasing the amount of carbon in the atmosphere.

Can you believe this? http://www.pressdisplay.com/pressdisplay/showlink.aspx?bookmarkid=12U9L4HX10Z7&preview=article&linkid=8943d3ff-1b4b-42dd-af1a-35496daae4fc&pdaffid=ZVFwBG5jk4Kvl9OaBJc5%2bg%3d%3d

I think we're at the point where we should be worried.

Thank you for your important post. This is definitely an important time, and I'm happy to see that more and more people are realizing how much of an impact they make on the environment. Moreover, how they can alter their actions, and make more ecologically sound choices. Thank you for your post! :)
