Best way to fight climate change? Plant a trillion trees


This is by far — by thousands of times — the cheapest climate change solution, study co-author says

contrary to the prevailing view that forest area has declined globally5—tree cover has increased by 2.24 million km2 (+7.1% relative to the 1982 level). This overall net gain is the result of a net loss in the tropics being outweighed by a net gain in the extratropics. Global bare ground cover has decreased by 1.16 million km2 (−3.1%), most notably in agricultural regions in Asia.

12. For security and reliability, an average of two months of national demand for hydrocarbons are in storage at any time. Today, barely two hours of national electricity demand can be stored in all utility-scale batteries plus all batteries in one million electric cars in America.

13. Batteries produced annually by the Tesla Gigafactory (world’s biggest battery factory) can store three minutes worth of annual U.S. electric demand.

14. To make enough batteries to store two day's worth of U.S. electricity demand would require 1,000 years of production by the Gigafactory (world’s biggest battery factory).

Sure feels that way, doesn’t it?

Climate Change Threatens World’s Coffee Supply, Report Says

 

 

 

https://www.cityam.c...rices-crashing/

 

So much coffee is now being produced in the world that global prices are crashing, according to new data.
 
A record seasonal surplus of beans being produced pushed down coffee futures to their lowest levels in more than a decade during April, with a rise in demand for caffeinated drinks failing to stem the plummeting prices.

 

 

And 'progressives' wonder why people challenge the dogma of climate change....

 

 

https://nationalcoff...ecast-overview/

 

World coffee production for 2018/19 is forecast 11.4 million bags higher than the previous year at a record 171.2 million primarily due to Brazil’s record output, according to the USDA’s “Coffee: World Markets and Trade” report, published June 2018.

Weather watchers are focused on the world's most northerly community, which has been in the middle of a record-breaking heat wave.

"It's really quite spectacular," said David Phillips, Environment Canada's chief climatologist. "This is unprecedented."

The weather agency confirmed that Canadian Forces Station Alert hit a record of 21 C on Sunday. On Monday, the military listening post on the top of Ellesmere Island had reached 20 C by noon and inched slightly higher later in the day.

Alert was warmer both days than Victoria, B.C., a Canadian go-to for balmy climes.

The average July high for Alert is 7 C. Phillips said that means the heat wave at the top of the world is the equivalent of Toronto registering a daytime high of 42 C.

I received this the other day...

 

The IPCC models have not managed to identify an underlying base line on which to add or subtract potential human impacts on climate, and ALL of the models have predicted significantly greater warming than has actually occurred.

 

Well, in the past few months, researchers in THREE SEPARATE COUNTRIES, Japan, Finland, and Australia, have all published material claiming to have found the "missing link" that explains climate change.  AND, all three conclude that man-made climate change (that is, climate change induced by carbon dioxide) is virtually non-existent, eclipsed by the heating and cooling effects of cloud formation due to increased cosmic radiation. (It's the SUN stupid).

 

It will be interesting to see whether peer reviews of the material produce agreement with the conclusions.

 

Here are some easy to read links:

Re the world's coffee supply, this seems like we are confusing weather and climate again. Sure, there is a 7% increase in coffee bean supply this year over the previous high, but that doesn't mean it's not an outlier, and over 30, 40 years the supply could slowly trend downwards

WHO BURNS THE STUFF ANYWAY
Several municipal Councils, including Toronto and Victoria, are looking to sue fossil-fuel producers for causing climate change, but 70 per cent of emissions come from their own constituents. And imagine their outcry if fuel producers failed to deliver!

 

B.C. GREEN INCOHERENCE
B.C. Premier Horgan, a champion of carbon taxes, called an enquiry to investigate high gasoline prices, but prohibited the enquiry panel from considering the price impact of provincial taxes. He also wants Alberta to build a new refinery to supply his province, but he’s against the pipeline that’s needed to carry it.

 

SORRY, ONLY FOREIGN TANKERS ALLOWED
The Trudeau government implemented a tanker ban prohibiting movement of Canadian oil on the northern B.C. coast. Meanwhile, hundreds of tankers churn through the delicate and much more enclosed St. Lawrence estuaries carrying oil from Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, Russia, Iraq, Nigeria, Angola and Algeria. And while ship/whale collisions are virtually unheard-of on BC’s northern coast, those foreign oil tankers move through waters where a critically endangered Northern Right Whale was killed in a ship collision just last month.

 

THE GREAT ANTI-OIL INDUSTRY WARRIOR IS BACK
Gerald Butts, former personal secretary to the prime minister, is back to help the Liberals win re-election. Before joining the Prime Minster’s Office (PMO), Butts was CEO of World Wildlife Canada (WWF), an organization dedicated to “landlocking” the oilsands by stopping new pipelines. In his role as head honcho of the PMO, he was the mastermind behind policies that could cripple our country’s oil industry. Gerald Butts has admitted via his Twitter account to receiving $361,642 from WWF during his first two years at the PMO. He claims it was severance, but how many Canadians have ever received severance for quitting their job?

Gwyn Morgan: Here are a few climate-change head scratchers for Canadian voters to ponder

 

 

On June 17, the House of Commons passed a motion declaring a National Climate Emergency.

 

Firstly, there is no such thing as a “national” climate emergency. Climate change is global, not national, and Canada’s contribution to global CO2 emissions is a minuscule 1.6 per cent.

 

 

 

So just how fast are sea levels rising? Here again the NOAA provides the answer. Despite all the calamitous rhetoric, the NOAA states that sea levels “continue to rise at the rate of about one-eighth of an inch (3.2 mm) per year.” At that rate, a house built 10 feet above sea level today would still be 9 feet 7 inches above sea level 40 years from now.

 

 

 

South Africa, India, the Philippines, South Korea, Japan and China, all signatories to the Paris climate accord, are building a combined 1,800 new coal-fired power plants. Coal plants emit twice as much CO2 as natural gas plants. Meanwhile, international environmental groups campaign against sending Canadian LNG to those countries. And here at home, the Trudeau Liberals have just introduced a tax specifically designed to discourage the building of new cleaner-burning gas-fired power plants as they continue to pursue the fantasy that wind and solar will keep the lights on. Good luck with that. After hundreds of billions of dollars invested, wind and solar contribute just two per cent of global energy supply. And that’s only when the wind is blowing, and the sun is shining.

Rex Murphy says it like it is. Enjoy the read.

The chosen ones gathered to save us all from a humid world was a rare mix, including Woody Harrelson, Diane von Furstenberg, David Geffen, Chris Martin, Leonardo DiCaprio (discoverer of the Chinook), Sacha Baron Cohen, Orlando Bloom, Katy Perry, Prince Harry and a clutch of egotist billionaires and trendoids too numerous to list.

How do I save thee (Earth). Let me count the ways?

How did this coven of illuminati get to Sicily? Did they walk and row? Come by Greyhound? Hitchhike? Nein. Official count of the private jets wafting into Palermo air for the “great consult” stands at 114. This for a maximum 300 people attending — three persons per jet.

Not all came from the carbon-rich sky. Some came by personal super-yacht.

Someone called in to CFAX yesterday and said he will refuse to buy into global warming until the day David Suzuki stops jet setting around the world.

Did you know that watching porn produces more GHG's than all the oil sands projects combined? 

 

Did you know that online streaming produces 4% of global GHG's?

Dont hear Suzuki and Lizzie May telling folks to stop logging in to Pornhub do we?

 

I'll just leave this here for you all to ponder next time you are streaming your fave hardcore...I guess it truly is a guilty pleasure...
