Oil Will Choke Us To Death

Because this is the kind of shit we have to deal with:

Tar Sands Pipeline Bursts in Arkansas

Which is the kind of bull crap which leads to stuff like this:

Peru Declares State of Emergency for Rainforest

But good thing there’s no sign of slowing down:

Ecuador Sells off Amazon to Chinese Oil Firms

Really great stuff, guys. Really great.

Noam Chomsky on the Rich and Mighty

Substantial lobbying efforts by some of the wealthiest and most powerful Americans aim to keep Americans ill-informed and obedient, distorting the truth on climate change.

Styrofoam is awful and New York has more than any other place in the country. I hope this works.

Landfill Harmonic

This is definitely one of the coolest uses of recycled garbage. Truly inspirational.

“Why Climate Deniers Have No Scientific Credibility - In One Number”

Deniers of climate science are fond of the following wacky idea: That the scientific community does not agree on the cause of climate change. It’s time to bury that idea like a senile dog hiding a ham bone: Somewhere where we’ll forget about it forever.

According to some recent data-mining of the scientific literature, 0.17% is the percentage of peer-reviewed scientific papers in the past 21 years that offer a scientifically-viable alternative to human-caused global warming.

Only 24 of 13,950 articles (0.17%) try to make this case in a scientific manner. If any of them were right, they would have been cited hundreds of times, instead of forgotten forever.

Among the public, denying global warming is a very popular and very influential idea. Among scientists, it holds slightly less than no water.

The Death of Coffee

Researchers say that climate change could bring about the extinction of arabica beans, the most common bean used to make coffee. Rising temperatures combined with deforestation, pests, and disease could spell an end for the bean and a massive hike in the price for a cup of coffee.

Coffee beans aren’t the only crop to be affected by climate change. Corn and wheat could be negatively impacted as global temperatures rises, and bananas may see a rise in popularity over potatoes.

The End of the Mayans

As the fabled Mayan doomsday slowly approaches it may give us pause to reflect on the Mayans own demise which scientists confirm was due in large part to the civilization’s inability to adapt to climate change.
