    Oil industry recognizes that global warning increases their repair bills? One hurricane cost how much in the
    Gulf of Pollution? Record amount?
    State figures on infrastructure repair bills? Highway shifting ? FEMA?
    Hurricane season starts officially when a hurricane strikes because that is when the repair bills start coming. Course hurricane season starts at another time for those who track the weather.

    WeatherUnderground launches new Local Climate Change section

    By Dr. Jeff Masters
    Published: 6:10 PM GMT on April 20, 2012
    In honor of Earth Day on Sunday, wunderground has launched a new Climate Change Center, which gives people resources to understand how the climate is changing both globally and in their local neighborhoods. I am particularly pleased with our Local Climate Change feature, which allows one to see how temperature and precipitation have changed over the past 100+ years at the nearest station with a long period of measurements. Predictions from climate models on what the next 100 years may bring are overlaid for each station. Data for most U.S. stations goes back to 1895; we have data for a few stations in Europe that extend back to the 1700s. Berlin has the longest period of record in this database, with data back to 1702.

      Risk benefit analysis would likely indicate that rapid broad deployment many times larger is completely justified in a rational society.

    I recommend the movie “Carbon Nation” http://www.carbonnationmovie.com/

    .

    It reiterates a lot of what’s posted on Climate Progress (we have the technology, clean energy = jobs, people with guts and vision can fix this, etc) in an upbeat, positive and accessible tone.

    To a regular reader of ClimateProgress, it’s old news, but audience members commented “it’s the first positive take I’ve seen on solutions”, “not all gloom and doom, it seems like we can solve the problem”, “important for young people to see so they know where to go.”

      I find it strange this movie is not shared on thepiratebay.se not even a demo version… it is out for some time and would be great way to educate people… especially people who do not visit cinemas nor can afford the DVD!

    • John Tucker says:

      I have mixed feelings about that pro. I guess its something, I am just am not sure if it can be profitable and if it is will it actually be a overall plus.

    Consumers set to pay the price as electricity companies are forced to import more gas, damaging prospects for green jobs http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2012/apr/21/missed-renewable-energy-targets-uk?newsfeed=true

    Cameron advertised during the election that his party will be the greenest the UK ever had.

    • Spike says:

      Yes it is now clear they are going to go on a dash for gas, approve fracking, and stick an ever growing mountain of bill payers cash into new nukes.

      Scotland is showing the way ahead, as in so many areas of our benighted country.

  10. Make sure to dvr Up with Chris Hayes. He’s covering climate change very well.

    There are 3 blog articles at the website for the Institute for Strategic Resilience http://www.globalisr.com . The most recent article on the Strategic Framework for Climate Change Response is Part 2b: How to Convert Critical Issues and Strategic Objectives into FOCUSED ACTION. I hope some readers will find this information useful!

    A bit off topic for Earth Day,one thing that could differentiate humans in the old comparison to the Petrie dish of bacteria that have run into resource depletion is that the bacteria do not have a way to change their waste product so that the bacteria do fail.
    If humans find that we may take a proactive interest in our waste to change it back into a future resource that would differentiate us from “lower” life forms.
    It would be a further step from just removing the trash so that we don’t see it etc.

      Locals explain how bicycling through the nature trails is great fun. I’ve never done so with an elec. bike but I’m sure that the natural beauty is there doing it’s own thing.

    I know this post is a few days late, and I hope people still read it. I will try to re-post somewhere here on climate progress because I think it is so important.

    At an international polar conference right now (April 24th) Harper government minders have been sent to monitor and record what Canadian scientists are saying to the press. Anytime a Canadian scientist even gets close to someone from the media their conversation will be monitored and recorded. The Harper government has muzzled and stopped scientists from speaking to journalists.

    Didn’t this kind of censorship happen during the cold war in the USSR?
