And do we in North America think we are immune or isolated from these catastrophic events caused by climate change?
We are looking at +10 degrees above average temperatures in the lower mainland and interior of BC, an aberration for now but soon to be the norm. Massive forest fires can be expected.
Look at the southwestern United States. People are going to die from heat exhaustion and they will lose billions to wildfires and withered crops.
Prices for those foods we have come to rely on will skyrocket.

World Council of Churches DIVESTS, "saying it had determined the investments were no longer ethical."
A large umbrella group of churches representing more than half a billion Christians worldwide announced Thursday that it would pull all of its investments in fossil fuels, saying it had determined the investments were no longer ethical.

Sorry, the 1st was outrage at the lost earlier comments, and I bought a [3] bottle[s] of red tonite for a change.

Yum.

But He's up there, taking THE issues on. By dent of his ruthless REAL unnerstanding of our shithole of politrix, and preparedness to have a go, it's too early to knock him down.

None if us are gonna get rich enough to challenge the establishment by being 'light footprint flowers'.

So, give him credit, albeit that he made his pile by the EVIL coal mining escapade.

I, to myself, maintain Clive, and from yesserday's listening to the Senate, his Senators, are not dupes, and DO have the Grounded Aussie Spirit, to effect useful and good reforms.

Combine them with the others, like Muir, and the Greens [would you believe?], Et Al, and we have 'an Opportunity'.

We'll see...!

Cheers.

I have my doubts about this as a solution but the relationships it demonstrates are amazing.

quote: A leaked European Union trade document, published by the Washington Post, reveals the dangers of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership for communities and our climate. The document, similar to a previously leaked EU proposal for a chapter on energy which I wrote about here, makes it clear that the EU is looking to use this secretly negotiated trade pact as a back-door channel to get automatic, unfettered access to U.S. fracked gas and oil. If this proposal moves forward, we would see more fracking for oil and gas in the United States, more climate-disrupting pollution globally, and increased dependence on fossil fuels in the EU. So, while oil and gas companies on both sides of the Atlantic rake in profits, everyone else is stuck paying the costs.

Maybe it better to stop opposing the fossil fuel industry and just focus on putting them out of business.  All signs are that we are nearing the tipping point and once governments see fossil fuel as a cost and not a benefit it will be game over.
As early as 2018, solar could be economically viable to power big cities. By 2040 over half of all electricity may be generated in the same place it's used. Centralised, coal-fired power is over

पानी, हमारा जीवन है; सांस है; आस है। जितना यह सत्य है, उतना ही सत्य यह भी है कि पानी की कमी और अशुद्धि रोग को निमंत्रण देकर बुलाती है। उसके पीछे-पीछे मौत बिन बुलाए चली आती है। हमें ताज्जुब नहीं होना चाहिए कि दुनिया में 40 प्रतिशत मौत पानी, मिट्टी और हवा में बढ़ आए प्रदूषण की वजह से हो रही हैं।

+Mc Safavi Allowing an unqualified individual to publicly dismiss the consensus of hundreds of the world’s top climate scientists as 'hocus-pocus science' isn't the right thing to do. 
By banning Lawson, the BBC correctly avoids the false-equivalency issue.

"Climate change should be treated with much scepticism.  If the temperature rises 3C in 100 years, at the very most one of those [degrees] would be man-made.  If the sea level rises six inches, that's a big deal in the world, the Maldives might disappear or something, but OK, we can't mitigate that, we can't stop it, we have to stop building vast houses on seashores.  We shouldn't be building windmills and all that rubbish.  The world has been changing for thousands and thousands of years."
News Corp chairman Rupert Murdoch has dubbed Prime Minister Tony Abbott an admirable, honest and principled man, and said Australians should not be building windmills and ''all that rubbish''.

I'm surprised that there wasn't mention of Virginia. I've read that coastal VA is getting a lot of flooding too, making roads impassable.

People who are this determined to harm the planet and the health of others shouldn't be allowed to reproduce.
Introducing “rolling coal” - the sub-cultural, anti-social behavior of the week! For as little as $500, pro-fossil fuel advocates have started to modify their diesel truck so that they emit black smoke as they drive.
