"Without the oceans there would be no life on Earth. They help create the air we breathe, drive our weather systems and are home to a staggering 80 per cent of all life on Earth. We now know that human activities are having a serious impact so here are some simple things you can do to help save our oceans."

The International Court of Justice has just ruled that Japan must immediately end its so-called ‘scientific’ whaling program: http://bit.ly/1dPjrpj

This is a huge step forward in our efforts to ban this unnecessary and wasteful practice.

SHARE to join the celebration!

"The IPCC report included the 'range' you quote as something of a concession to those who can only think/plan with dollars (never mind all those 'externalities' like human lives or our ecosystem that we are inextricably a part of)"

Human lives count as a cost to economists. External costs count as costs. Effects on humans of changes in the ecosystem count as costs. You are arguing from a mistaken idea of what economics is.

The IPCC presumably gave the range because if they badly misrepresented it the economists associated with the report would have resigned. They then qualified the real estimate to obscure how small the effect was estimated to be, relative to their rhetoric.

"It's "effects ON natural and human systems OF extreme weather...". Your response seems to have reversed these."

I don't think so. I quoted accurately. They are looking at effects of extreme weather, not just of extreme weather due to climate change.

If you think my response somehow is based on a misreading, perhaps you could explain why you think that.

If only polar bears could talk to climate change deniers…

SHARE this if you believe that there is no climate debate—just precious time wasted.

In June 2013, the Bureau of Customs started to receive tons of importation of 50 forty foot container vans from Canada filled with household waste.

This is a clear example of the disgraceful hazardous waste trade that continues to happen right under our noses where industries from developed countries unashamedly ship their toxic waste to poorer, developing countries like the Philippines.

In case you haven't done so, please sign this petition ▶ http://chn.ge/1kogn1O ◀ and call on the Canadian government to hasten the re-exportation of their waste back to Canada.
