    “You are looking at retreat,” says Prof Colin Thorne, a flooding expert at the University of Nottingham. “It is the only sensible policy – it makes no sense to defend the indefensible.” This assessment of how the UK will have to adapt to its increasing flood risk is stark, but is shared by virtually all those who work on the issue.Centuries of draining wetlands, reclaiming salt marshes and walling in rivers is being put into reverse by climate change, which is bringing fiercer storms, more intense downpours and is pushing up sea levels. Sea walls are now being deliberately allowed to be breached, with new defences built further back, and fields turned into lakes to slow the rush of the water, as flood management turns back towards natural methods.Thorne says the strategy of once more “making space for water” has been around for a decade, but the urgency of implementing it has increased sharply. “We thought then we were talking about the 2030s, but it is all happening a heck of a lot quicker.”

    Large parts of southern England had their wettest January ever recorded, the Met Office announced on Thursday, and the Somerset Levels, much of which is below sea level, have been inundated for weeks. “I have enormous sympathy for these people,” says Thorne. But he thinks the 1,000-year history of keeping the sea out of the area is coming to the end. “Can the Somerset Levels be defended between now...

    Australia's standing as the home among the gumtrees could be challenged, with increased climate stress causing extensive change to Australia's eucalypt ecosystems.

    A study by the National Environmental Research Program's Environmental Decisions Hub has found that climate stress on eucalypts will mean many of Australia's 750 species will struggle to cope with climate change.

    ''Those that will be most affected are the Eucalyptus and Corymbia species in the central desert and open woodlands area,'' said author Nathalie Butt of the NERP Environmental Decisions Hub and the University of Queensland. The study found that ''under the mid-range climate scenario, these species will lose 20 per cent of their climate space, and twice that under the extreme scenario''.

    The mid-range scenario suggests that ''temperatures will increase by more than 1C by 2055 and by more than 2C by 2085. For the extreme scenario temperatures will increase by more than 1.5C and 2.5C respectively'', Dr Butt said. She said there is additional concern for the impact these conditions will have on wildlife in such areas. ''Trees are habitats and food sources. So this will have a cascade effect on birds, bats and invertebrates that are reliant on eucalypt, and it will affect pollinators as well,'' she said.

  • A climate of fear, cash and correctitude

    Community, Environmental Design


    Earth’s geological, archaeological and written histories are replete with climate changes: big and small, short and long, benign, beneficial, catastrophic and everything in between, A climate of fear, cash and correctitude 400 feet for thousands of years.

    Modern environmentalism, coupled with fears first of global cooling and then of global warming , persuaded politicians to launch the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Its original goal was to assess possible human influences on global warming and potential risks of human-induced warming. However, it wasn’t long before the Panel minimized, ignored and dismissed non-human factors to such a degree that its posture became the mantra that only humans are now affecting climate.

    Over the last three decades, five IPCC “assessment reports,” dozens of computer models, scores of conferences and thousands of papers focused almost entirely on humanfossil fuel use and carbon dioxide/greenhouse gas emissions, as being responsible for “dangerous” global warming, climate change, climate “disruption,” and almost every “extreme” weather or climate event. Tens of billions of dollars have supported these efforts, while only a few million have been devoted toanalyses of all factors—natural and human—that affect and drive planetary climate change.

    You would think researchers would welcome an opportunity to balance that vast library of one-sided research with an analysis of the natural causes of climate change—to...


    The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) will allocate $75 million for the rehabilitation of the Toktogul hydropower plant (HPP) in Kyrgyzstan, Kyrgyz Telegraph Agency reported on September 13 citing the country's energy ministry.

    During a meeting of Kyrgyz Minister of Energy and Industry Osmonbek Artykbayev and Head of the EBRD Resident Office in Bishkek, Larisa Manastirli, the sides discussed the possibility of the EBRD's involvement in co-financing the project on the rehabilitation of the Toktogul HPP where the Asian Development Bank (ADB) acts as the main donor.

    Some $190 million is required for the implementation of the second phase of the project. The EBRD is ready to allocate $75 million for the purpose. The second phase of the project envisages the financial and managing audit of the Electric Plants Open Joint Stock Company.

    In the course of his professional life in the world of national security Edward Snowden must have gone through numerous probing interviews, lie detector examinations, and exceedingly detailed background checks, as well as filling out endless forms carefully designed to catch any kind of falsehood or inconsistency. The Washington Post(June 10) reported that “several officials said the CIA will now undoubtedly begin reviewing the process by which Snowden may have been hired, seeking to determine whether there were any missed signs that he might one day betray national secrets.”

    Yes, there was a sign they missed – Edward Snowden had something inside him shaped like a conscience, just waiting for a cause.

    It was the same with me. I went to work at the State Department, planning to become a Foreign Service Officer, with the best – the most patriotic – of intentions, going to do my best to slay the beast of the International Communist Conspiracy. But then the horror, on a daily basis, of what the United States was doing to the people of Vietnam was brought home to me in every form of media; it was making me sick at heart.

    My conscience had found its cause, and nothing that I could have been asked in a pre-employment interview would have alerted my interrogators of the possible danger I posed because I didn’t know of the danger myself. ...

    On Tuesday, June 25, in a speech before enthusiastic students at Georgetown University, President Obama delivered a message outlining his vision for what the United States ought to do, and what he personally is going to do, about the moral issue of energy production. Now at first glance, you would think that energy production is a technical issue that should be left to engineers and economists. But it was clear from the President’s speech that he thinks it is also a moral issue, as moral as which side you should fight on in a war. His speech, in fact, was peppered with militant terminology. He spoke of having the “courage to act,” he talked of the “fight against climate change,” and expressed his desire for America to “win the race for clean energy.” Toward the end, he called for citizens “who will stand up, and speak up, and compel us to do what this moment demands.” To that end, he announced that he was going to ask the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to issue regulations that, according to Obama critic Charles Krauthammer, will “make it impossible to open any new coal plant and will systematically shut down existing plants.”

    If the construction of new coal-fired power plants is going to come to an end, maybe we can start building more Ivanpahs instead. Ivanpah is a Piute term meaning “good water,” and is the name of a giant solar-energy project not too far from where Interstate 15 crosses the California-Nevada line on its way to Las Vegas. Buil...

    After months of public pressure over the possibility of expanding fracking in the Loyalsock State Forest, the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) finally held a public meeting on June 3rd at the Lycoming College in Williamsport. One leading opponent of these proposals has accepted our invitation to publish his presentation to the meeting at which he airs his real fears for the future, not just for the Loyalsock and its neighboring areas, but for our very existence at the hands of these ruthless exploiters. The gas is not going to help us or our economy – most of it will end up in China!

    My name is Dean Marshall and I live in Columbia County. I am concerned not only about the cumulative effects of continued fossil fuel extraction and use, but especially by the permanent changes this will bring to Our few remaining Natural Areas.

    I was raised in a peaceful, Forrest and Farming area of Luzerne County and taught to respect the land and All of the living things by my parents, who were raised on sawmills by their parents. Responsible use of our Natural Resources was always the priority.

    We moved to Western New York when I was nine. Growing up there was full of new lessons! By my 16th yr. there was talk of pollution, and a need to conserve our Resources before it was too late. News of soaring Cancer rates near Niagara Falls was “leaking out”. This became the wakeup call that is known as the Love Canal Catastrophe. Huge corporations, DOW, Hooker and Uni...

    Fueled by technological innovations and globalization, in the last two decades the world’s economic growth has lifted more than 660 million people out of poverty and has raised the income level of millions more.

    However, such growth has too often come at the expense of the environment. As the world population has tripled and the global economy expanded tenfold over the past 60 years, our demands on planet earth have become excessive.

    We have been cutting forest trees faster than they can regenerate, over-grazing rangelands and converting them into deserts, over-pumping aquifers, and draining rivers dry.

    On our agricultural lands, soil erosion exceeds new soil formation, gradually depriving the soil of its inherent fertility. We have been catching fish from the ocean faster than they can reproduce, bringing about over-fishing in most parts of the world’s seas and oceans.

    We have been discharging pollutants into the environment at a greater level than its assimilative capacity, resulting in widespread water pollution.

    We have also been emitting carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases (GHGs) into the atmosphere faster than nature can absorb them, creating a greenhouse effect and global warming.

    As a corollary of this carbon-fixing deficit, atmospheric CO2 concentration climbed from 316 ppm (parts per million) in 1959, when official measurement began, to 383 ppm in 2007. Conversion of forests, mangroves, coral reefs and other natural ecosystems into man-made...

  • Coal_army_corps_declines_broad_environmental_reviews_for_export_terminals__by_jakarta_environmental_issues_crown_eco_management_177_

    The Army Corps of Engineers today said it would not conduct an areawide or cumulative review of various coal export terminal proposals in Oregon and Washington state.

    In a hearing of the House Energy and Commerce Committee's Energy and Power Subcommittee, corps acting regulatory chief Jennifer Moyer also said her agency would not weigh the climate change impacts of burning more American coal overseas.

    "The corps has determined that neither a programmatic nor an areawide regional [environmental impact study] are appropriate when considering the proposed permits in light of these [National Environmental Policy Act] regulations," Moyer said in her testimony.

    Environmental groups and other critics of increased coal exports, plus elected officials like the governors of Oregon and Washington, have called for a cumulative review, including the potential impacts of more coal use, mining and rail traffic (Greenwire, March 22).

    But Moyer said "many of the activities of concern to the public, such as rail traffic, coal mining, shipping coal outside of U.S. territory and the ultimate burning of coal overseas, are outside the corps' control and responsibility for the permit applications related to the proposed projects."

    Subcommittee Chairman Ed Whitfield (R-Ky.) called the corps statement "the right decision." He said such a cumulative review that includes global climate change would have the United States regulating energy decisions abroad.
