Well crafted short video on carbon emissions and the "credit" of 22 years explained before we hit the 2degC plus barrier.

cannot agree more. Making a start-up successful requires discipline but is likewise a "discipline".

I generally like to promote positive news. However, in particular, because below article is published by the New York Times, which I regard as a quality newspaper, I have to speak up against this fearmongering.
Scientifically, the article is ill researched and appears to be a marketing piece for the company offering to detect natural gas leaks (BTW, nothing wrong with measurements to improve gas network performance and safety).
In essence, and please read Richard Muller's excellent piece about "Fugitive Methane and Global Warming" (http://static.berkeleyearth.org/memos/fugitive-methane-and-greenhouse-warming.pdf), even if 14% of methane was leaking, which economically and regarding health and safety unacceptable, using methane is still environmentally better than burning coal. The truth is gas leaks do contribute, yes, but very, very little to global warming! 
I haven't done the math, but I would guess that eating a couple of Hamburgers less will generously compensate your private contribution to global warming by gas leaks from our distribution networks.
Trust the New York Times will do better next time.

Never heart about it, but the scientific evidence is overwhelming - even better it's (assumed PV or wind-power generated) an almost environmental and non-toxic deterrent. Kindly PLUS it to your friends. 

Beer brewers against fracking ... never thought about it, but the argument is both tasty and compelling. The economics are overwhelmingly pro-beer. Again Germany is leading the way: build more local breweries, create jobs and get happy. :-)

Still one of the best websites to get facts & figures right on climate change.

Kudos, great idea and execution. Snapchat keeps social media where it belongs: To your moments and not to the dustbin of your digital memory.

China installed almost as much wind power capacity in ONE YEAR as the entire power generation capacity installed in The Netherlands (incl. coal, gas, nuclear,) over the last 60 years.
Strangely, The Netherlands should do better, being the 10th best performer by GDP (PPP), compared with China ranking place 93!
