Pollution flies out of airport | AspenTimes.com
People come from all over the world to Pitkin County to talk about how bad global warming is getting; for many, their gateway is our worst source of air and ground pollutants — the airport...THE HOCKEY SCHTICK: New paper finds increased CO2 and global warming will increase grain production
Why not come up now with a pricing system for landing fees to offset the airfield's present and future carbon footprint, based on pricing carbon emissions per passenger?
A paper published today in the Journal of Applied Meteorology and Climatology finds that "fertilization effects" on grain yields due to "elevated CO2 concentration generally compensates for the negative effects of warming temperatures on production. Moreover, positive effects of elevated CO2 concentration on grain yield increase with warming temperatures." The authors note, "There is a high probability of ...(increasing) changes in yield and water use efficiency under higher temperature scenarios...(with) consideration of CO2 fertilization effects" and "The findings could be critical for climate change-driven agricultural production that ensures global food security."Rate of arctic summer sea ice loss is 50% higher than predicted | Environment | The Observer
"Very soon we may experience the iconic moment when, one day in the summer, we look at satellite images and see no sea ice coverage in the Arctic, just open water."
