When to Build Sea Walls  

During the month of December 2021 two warnings of impending sea level rise were issued by highly respected groups of climate scientists. These are professional scientists who do not deal in hyperbole. Rather, they are archetypical conservative serious-minded scientists who follow the facts. The most recent warning on December 30th is of deteriorating conditions at […]

The Biggest Threat in ‘Don’t Look Up’ Are the Capitalists on Earth

As the dust settles on a movie that has well and truly got people talking about the climate crisis in a way that no other movie has, it is worth talking about one of the most important messages of the movie, and one that has largely been ignored. In Don’t Look Up, as the meteor hurtles […]

Carbon Justice and Global Survival

by Thomas Klikauer & Meg Young Unlike rather known concept of “climate” justice, the idea of “carbon” justice is so advanced that it does not even have a Wikipedia entry, yet. One of the countries that might serve as a near perfect example for carbon justice is Australia. With its massive coal export, Australia is one of, […]

Climate Chaos: What to Learn From 2021

To keep acting as if there wasn’t war declared against the planet and humanity is to accept we are already defeated. Continuing to play their game can only guarantee collapse. It’s time to flip the table. A home is engulfed in flames as the Dixie fire rages on in Greenville, California on August 5, 2021. […]

Climate change calls for a change of heart

When Senator Joe Manchin torpedoed the Build Back Better bill this week, climate change activists despaired. Many see the bill as our last big chance to decarbonize the American economy and stave off disastrous warming. Such missed opportunities and despair are not new. I moved to the Washington DC region 31 years ago as a […]

Time for a Climate Insurgency?

A few historical examples: The “Age of Democratic Revolutions” between 1760 and 1800 saw people in dozens of countries participate in uprisings and movements to establish popular control of the state. While these movements advocated national independence, there was extensive solidarity and mutual support among them. The international abolitionist movement spread throughout Europe and the […]

Climate Crisis at the Top of the World – Global Orders and Catastrophic Change

When midnight strikes on New Year’s Day of 2050, there will be little cause for celebration. There will, of course, be the usual toasts with fine wines in the climate-controlled compounds of the wealthy few. But for most of humanity, it’ll just be another day of adversity bordering on misery — a desperate struggle to find food, […]

Whales Will Save the World’s Climate—Unless the Military Destroys Them First

The U.S. military is famous for being the single largest consumer of petroleum products in the world and the largest emitter of greenhouse gases. Its carbon emissions exceed those released by “more than 100 countries combined.” Now, with the Biden administration’s mandate to slash carbon emissions “at least in half by the end of the decade,” the Pentagon has committed to using all-electric […]

UK’s tax breaks for oil and gas ‘unlawful’ and harm climate action, court hears

Image Credit: Sabrina Merolla/Zuma Press Wire/Rex/Shutterstock The strategy being pursued by the UK government’s oil and gas regulator and business secretary is “unlawful” because it fails to regulate tax breaks for oil and gas companies, a court has been told. The hearing today at the Royal Court of Justice in London also heard that the […]

5.9 $trillion spent by governments on fossil fuel subsidies in 2020

As indicated by the International Monetary fund, greenhouse gas emissions are funded world-wide by government subsidies totaling $5.9 trillion in 2020, about 6.8% global GDP, expected to rise to 7.4% of GDP in 2025, or $11million a minute. In the view of some scientists fuel subsidies are ‘adding fuel to the fire of the climate crisis’. Hollow words by […]

FACT CHECK: Biden Claims Kentucky Tornado Linked to ‘Climate Change’

CLAIM: The devastating Kentucky tornado is the result of a warmer climate, which is making storms more frequent. VERDICT: UNCERTAIN. Scientists do not actually know if there is a correlation between storms and a warmer climate. President Joe Biden could not let a tragedy go by — even one of the worst tornadoes in living […]

Big Oil’s new strategy: Profit today, fight again tomorrow

This article is published as part of Covering Climate Now, a global collaboration of news outlets strengthening coverage of the climate story. Despite countless investigations, lawsuits, social shaming, and regulations dating back decades, the oil and gas industry remains formidable. After all, it has made consuming its products seem like a human necessity. It has […]

Why Poorer Nations Aren’t Falling for Green-Washed Imperialism

Fighting global warming is not just about providing a path to net-zero carbon emissions for all countries. It is also about figuring out how best to meet the energy needs of people across the world while working toward net-zero emissions. If fossil fuels have to be given up, which has now become an urgent need […]

Time to Fight Climate Change, Not Each Other

The Trudeau government’s plan to buy 88 new fighter jets and 15 combat vessels will do little to protect Canadians from this country’s most serious threats. And some people are angry enough to take the streets to send this message to Ottawa. Two dozen rallies were held across the country last week to oppose a […]

New report: Cost of renewable energies may be less than previously thought

While renewable energy cost can be hard to estimate, University of Oxford’s Institute of New Economic Thinking found that renewables likely cost less than previously thought. A new report found that predicted costs for renewables have likely been overestimated “falling short of early pricing model predictions again and again.” According to the World Economic Forum, […]

Jordan-Israel-UAE Energy Deal Is Not About Combating Climate Change, It’s About Money And Politics

The people of Jordan are pushing back against one of the biggest Arab-Israeli energy deals to date. Jordan’s people disregard the claims about “combating climate change” — as it becomes a mask with which world powers hide their political and geo-strategic agendas — arguing the deal is about monetary gains and normalization with Israel. This […]

Jordan-UAE-“Israel” Deal Proves ‘2-State Solution’ Dead For Arab Reactionary Regimes

1 Dec 2021 Source: Al Mayadeen Net Robert Inlakesh This agreement constitutes, not only a move against a two-State solution that Jordan claims to achieve but also an act of Arab collaboration with a usurper entity that seeks to impoverish and erase the native Palestinian inhabitants of the land. Stirring tensions between the Jordanian public […]

Business Insider: ‘Electric Vehicles Won’t Save Us — We Need to Get Rid of Cars Completely’

Paris Marx wrote in Business Insider: “Making transit available within a 10-minute walk of people’s homes would not only encourage its use and create tens of millions of jobs but could begin to transform our relationship to mobility. … There was a moment during the pandemic where it felt that change was not only possible […]

[embedded content] On October 1, 2021, a month before the kickoff of the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow, I had the good fortune to spend an hour with Noam Chomsky for a video interview.

The Big Industry That COP26 Failed to Tackle

The impact of agriculture on climate change is significant. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the agriculture sector is responsible for 10 percent of the total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, after transportation (29 percent), electricity production (25 percent), industry (23 percent), and commercial and residential usage (13 percent). However, according to Peter Lehner, managing attorney for EarthJustice, […]

WEF Warns: Global Warming to Disrupt Financial System, “Freeze” Bank Accounts

In its latest predictive propaganda, the World Economic Forum asks, “What if extreme weather FROZE your bank account?” It is clear that deliberate interruptions to critical infrastructure are coming. And these well-structured problems will be blamed on climate change. In order to make the case that an imagined “climate disaster” requires carbon lockdowns and the […]

Here in Australia aboriginal people are presently being escorted off their land in the name of (you-have-to-guess!). They’re not being evacuated from urban areas, but from those enormous remote tracts over which they have a substantial control. The quasi-military action is centred on the Northern Territory, source of much zinc, copper, lead, tungsten, lithium, rare […]
