The event Queen Elizabeth’s funeral marks the end of an era. What era?… And, exactly what have we been celebrating?… Australia, and indeed, seemingly most the rest of the world has spent the last two weeks mourning the passing of a 97 year old lady on the other side of the globe with a panoply …

Joshua Partlow, 17/01/2022 in the Washington Post How coal holds on in America
If Howard and I are right, we have already passed several tipping points triggering positive feedbacks that will cause global warming to increase exponentially towards a point-of-no return where global mass extinction (including humans) is almost inevitable (he links the same science articles I use in this context). To avoid this end we need to turn the barbecue around to roast the pigs and their wooden-headed puppets first.

The UN’s World Meteorological Organization warns us that we have done nothing to slow the global warming caused by our carbon emissions. Geneva, 13 September 2022 (WMO) – Climate science is clear: we are heading in the wrong direction, according to a new multi-agency report coordinated by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), which highlights the …
A rising tsunami of teal independents is transforming our democracy representing special interests to a participatory democracy of community representatives As noted in my many posts to Climate Sentinel News, it is becoming increasingly evident that humanity on our only planet faces near term extinction if we don’t manage to stop and reverse the global …

Politicians threatened by community-based independents warn of CHAOS, but these thinking independents have ideals rather than ideologies. Depending on how people vote, we may be headed towards a major revolution in the structure and functioning of our form of Parliamentary government. Under 9+ years of LNP COALition government, major policies have been heavily influenced by …
Another affluent Liberal heartland seat will test the importance of climate action and ethics to conservative, thinking voters Among a field of 11 candidates running in Kooyong, including the ‘born to rule’ incumbent Liberal Treasurer Josh Frydenberg who would be next PM after Scott Morrison, it seems likely that no one candidate will have a …

The physical laws of thermodynamics rule that it takes a lot of energy to capture wide-spread rare gas molecules into a tight space The article below extrapolates the costs of ‘proven’ technologies for direct air capture and sequestration of CO₂. To have any hope of cleansing our planet’s atmosphere, MILLIONS of these complex engineered contraptions …

Permafrost holds 2x more carbon than Earth’s atmosphere and 3x more than all forests. Thawing will hugely impact global climate warming Editors note: I have often mentioned the potential risk of rapid permafrost thawing serving as a source of powerful positive feedback on global warming from the abrupt emissions of greenhouse gases. The emissions include …
Our climate is heading towards Apocalypse. Four factors will probably end humanity if runaway global warming is not stopped by climate action Thanks to 100 years of extracting burning fossil fuels, the human population has expanded to exploit and control the resources of essentially the entire surface of our planet. We live on the surface …
Even the very conservative Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says billions of people will suffer direct harm from ongoing global warming. Are they getting the message? Although their science is impeccable, I have explained in detail that the IPCC is constrained by governmental foundations and scientific reticence to understate and downplay the dramatically stark nature …
