Posted in: Climate change supercharges threat from forest-eating bug See in context

It may be still possible, at the last minute, to prevent the burning out of our planet. This entails two things: 1) Moving away from extracting energy from carbon compounds to extracting it directly from the sun (using panels and concentrated solar power, which is much better) as well as from heavy nuclei (the best option is the fission of Uranium 233 manufactured from Thorium), 2) compensating for the Earth's diminution of ability to return radiation to the outer space due to the disappearance of the ice caps; this can be done by deploying sheets of reflecting material, of the appropriate wavelength, in the deserts and other areas which not utilized for agriculture.

A knowledgeable far sighted scientist and a layman view the climate crisis entirely differently. The former is aware of the interactions which govern the climate system, and has some notion about the equations of these interactions. He knows that the system is full of positive feedbacks and is therefore non-linear and non-stable. The latter, in contrast, adheres to a fundamental cognitive mistakes: He believes that what happened in the past will continue to happen in the future.

Posted in: After year of climate disasters, world off-track to curb warming See in context

I have recently seen a footage salvaged from the passenger cabin of an airliner, taken a moment before crashing. The passengers are sitting there. Still alive. Still breathing. But the oxygen masks are dropped, the cabin is semi-dark , and the dark shadow of death is already present. Death will engulf them very soon. So are the passengers of the airplane which is called "Planet Earth". They are still celebrating football, still devouring food, still guzzling drinks, still driving huge vehicles and still burning colossal amounts of carbon compounds. But the climate calamity is looming rapidly. All the ice caps will soon be melted. All the lakes and rivers will soon be dried out. The oceans are evaporating. The temperature is rising. Our civilization will suffer a tormenting death, similar to the death suffered by the civilization of our sister planet Venus and similar to the civilizations of ancient Pompeii and Sadom.

Kishida said -

"There are reports of sexual violence against women and countless other barbaric acts committed by Russian soldiers."

And I say: There are evidences of sexual kidnapping of hundreds of thousands of girls and women, and countless other barbaric acts, committed by a certain country which has never paid reparations.

Posted in: Future global treaty on plastics must cut production to ease pollution, some countries say See in context

There is an environmental problem graver than the problem of the plastic, namely the rise of the temperature. The atmospheric temperature is increasing rapidly. All the ice caps of the South and North poles, and of the high summits, have already melted. All the lakes and rivers have dried out. As the water rises to the atmosphere, in the form of vapor, they join the carbon gases and constitute an additional greenhouse gas. As a result, the temperature rises further. It is a vicious cycle: The increase of the temperature accelerate the evaporation, and the added vapor, in turn, contributes to further rise of the temperature. Soon the oceans will turn into vapor. The temperature will rise to hundreds of degrees Celsius. All the bio-mass will burn out, and rise to the temperature in the form of CO2. The atmosphere will become a mixture of fiery steam and of CO2. Finally the UV radiation will decompose the water molecules, and the light hydrogen atoms will escape to the outer space. CO2 will be all that remains, with a little amount of Nitrogen and Sulfur.

Posted in: Why fixing methane leaks from the oil and gas industry can be a climate game-changer See in context

Does our civilization wants to survive, and escape the fate suffered by the civilization of our sister planet Venus? If the answer is positive, our civilization must move from extraction of energy from carbon compounds to the extraction of energy directly from the sun and from heavy nuclei. And the move must be swift.

I cannot understand what would drive a person to want the power to destroy everything. For its own sake.

Of course you cannot understand that. And why? Because the image you have about the leaders of the DPRK (North Korea) does not comply with the actual reality.

I can understand people who want to be billionaires

I cannot understand that. I think that the ambition to be a billionaire is not healthy, and is not appropriate for a human being.

The climate warming is not the problem of the poor countries. The entire planet is warming up rapidly. This civilization needs to abandon carbon compounds, and move to extracting energy directly from the sun and from heavy nuclei if it wants to survive.
