The Value of Talking About Values | Ensia
“Take Naomi Klein, for instance,” Schmidt says. “Sometimes she makes a good point, but I don’t share her values. So when she starts talking about climate change as a rod to break capitalism’s back, she loses me. She clearly has a political agenda that’s different from mine. But if we both say, ‘We should do something about climate change,’ there are people who will think we totally agree on what and why.”
Suzuki: Harper is building prisons for eco-activists
OTTAWA - Environmental guru David Suzuki is convinced the Harper government is secretly building prisons for people guilty of criminal charges related to eco-activism - charges he believes the government is clandestinely devising at this very moment.
Why is nobody listening to the IPCC itself?
To leave no doubt, in an interview published in the Neue Zürcher Zeitung on 14 November 2010, Otto Edenhofer, co-chair of IPCC Working Group III, said,
“The climate summit in Cancun at the end of the month is not a climate conference, but one of the largest economic conferences since the Second World War…. one must say clearly that de facto we redistribute the world’s wealth by climate policy…. One has to rid oneself of the illusion that international climate politics have anything to do with environmental concerns.”
THE HOCKEY SCHTICK: New paper finds 'the reality of a link between long-term changes in solar activity and climate...has been confirmed'
A paper published today in Advances in Space Research finds "the reality of a link between long-term changes in solar activity and climate in [Finland-Scandinavia] has been confirmed." The authors temperature reconstruction from 1000 - 2004 AD finds "highly significant" temperature "oscillation modes, 55–100 year and 100–140 year variations" for which "a probable cause of this periodicity is the modulation of regional climate by the secular solar cycle of Gleissberg." The authors suggest the climate was controlled via solar amplification mechanisms in the lower troposphere.
