How can we stop the global warming?

The only way to protect the environment and curb global warming by limiting or stagnating economic growth. This is the conclusion of a group of scientists who, after a series of investigations, established a direct relationship between the main causes of climate change and global economic growth.

Researchers José Tapia Granados and Edward Ionides, University of Michigan, and Oscar Carpenter, University of Valladolid, Spain, measured levels of CO2 in the atmosphere from 1958 until 2010 and then sought the relationship between them and the rates of GDP in the world, increasing population and various natural phenomena that occurred in each particular year.

The results indicated that higher levels of carbon dioxide were observed in years when world GDP has been above normal.

The researchers noted that whenever the global GDP increased more than expected, shot CO2 levels.

"If we continue down the path that we, as if there were any problems, economic contractions are needed as the Great Recession or even more to reduce atmospheric CO2 levels," said Tapia Granados, cited by the journal Environmental Science and Policy.

In pre-industrial CO2 concentrations are estimated at between 200 and 300 parts per million (ppm) and are currently around 400 ppm, although the level to maintain a stable climate is around 300 ppm.

"One solution is the carbon tax charged on any activity that produces CO2 to create incentives for reducing emissions. The money raised would be returned to individuals so that the tax would not be a burden on the entire population, "says one scientist.

"What our study makes clear is that climate change will soon have a serious impact on the world, and increasingly have less time to take corrective action," he concludes.

From Here To Andromeda

From Here To Andromeda opens with the possibility that humanity may not survive due to Global Warming, an ensuing Ice Age or Mass Extinction. The question is, "Why hasn't humanity embraced sustainable technologies like Solar, Wind, and Helium-3 Fusion to beat Global Warming?"

Why are the oil companies holding us hostage? Why hasn't all of humanity awakened and taken measures to ensure our survival? Find out why so many UFOs are suddenly appearing all over the world. Are they here to teach us? Are they here to help humanity make a quantum leap? What do Governments know about UFOs? Will humanity find a new home in the universe?

Join UFO Researcher and Environmentalist David Sereda as he embarks on a journey in search of a way to travel to the Andromeda Galaxy 2.2 million light years away to find a new home for humanity.

Along his journey he explores Sustainability, UFOs, Crop Circles, Space Propulsion Theory, Spirituality, and Human Ethics in order to solve the greatest riddle in the universe: How can one travel faster than the speed of light and go anywhere in the universe in the blink of an eye.

"Global warming" is close to cause a catastrophe on our planet

The climate on our planet is located near a point of no return and the current decade can be crucial to your destination in London, said scientists at the conference 'Planet under pressure'.

"We are on the verge of great change," said Will Steffen, director of the National University of Australia, on climate change. "If we fail to maintain the temperature rise in the level of two degrees, we will cross the threshold beyond which the system is in a hot state."

The main emphasis was placed on the impact of climate change if rates are kept current and dynamic. Preliminary estimates indicate that if emissions of greenhouse gases continue at current levels, by 2100 the average temperature will rise by 6 degrees Celsius.

It is likely that the "response" of our planet is not linear, but catastrophic, so back to current conditions, simply by reducing the concentration of greenhouse gases will not be achieved. Catastrophic changes may be caused by two factors: the melting of glaciers and the disappearance of tropical forests.

The glaciers are slowing the pace of global warming, but their number decreases rapidly: about 200 cubic kilometers per year. As scientists propose measures rejection of power plants and the introduction of technologies to capture carbon dioxide in the Earth.

'' Earth Hour'': movement to fight the global warming

Once again, the WWF has called the so-called "Earth Hour", the largest global awareness campaign to combat climate change. All persons who wish to contribute to fight for the preservation of the planet have made a simple gesture, but highly relevant: turning off lights for one hour.

In this sixth edition, the group is looking for 500 people to form a human mosaic with its symbol, a giant panda at the celebration to be held in Madrid on Saturday March 31 afternoon.

WWF Spain held their events to raise the capital in the central Plaza de Oriente, next to the Palacio Real, like thousands of monuments around the world turn off their lights "on the planet" to 20.30 (times GMT) . From six in the afternoon at the Plaza de Oriente, the NGO will organize all kinds of fun activities with energy conservation as its theme, and for children and seniors.

At that time trials will also begin to form a huge human mosaic (20 by 25 meters) with a panda, WWF wants to record from aerial structures as a symbol of the 2012 edition of this awareness campaign in Spain. Later, at 20.30, will begin a concert by the Orchestra and Big Band WSE 21.00 hours will be held the blackout of the Royal Palace.

The fountain of Cibeles, the Prado Museum, Puerta de Alcala, the Casa de America, Botanical Garden, the Instituto Cervantes, the Almudena Cathedral or the Monastery of El Escorial will be other monuments of the Community of Madrid turn off their lights for the planet at that time, in addition to numerous companies lighted signs.

In the rest of Spain, famous monuments such as the Sagrada Familia, the aqueduct of Segovia, the Alhambra in Granada and the Giralda also will join the Earth Hour. In the rest of the world, many other monuments and landmarks like Times Square, the Eiffel Tower, Sydney Opera House or the Brandenburg Gate off again, as they did in previous years.

In 2011, more than 5,000 cities in 135 countries and millions of businesses, organizations and individuals joined in the celebration of 'Earth Hour'. In 2012, "WWF wants to challenge the world. It is the year of commitments and challenges. Of the shares in favor of the environment throughout the year." WWF has invited people around the world to challenge broadcast a message: "What would you be able to do to save the planet?". "Use your imagination and your social networks to spread the campaign among your followers and encourage them to do the same. The more we are, the stronger our voice is heard," said the organization on its website.

Some key points of the initiative:

- What is Earth Hour? : This is a global initiative to fight climate change and to raise awareness about the need to promote sustainable consumption and environmental friendly.

- Who is promoting this initiative? : WWF (World Wildlife Fund), one of the largest independent organizations dedicated to conservation of nature. Created in 1961, has since 1968 with a Spanish section WWF Spain.

- When did Earth Hour be? : In Sydney (Australia) in 2007. Then 2 million people supported the initiative and the lights in a gesture of solidarity with nature. A year later, between 50 and 100 million people in 370 cities of 35 countries observed 'Earth Hour 2008'.

- What are the long-term goals? : Looking for the involvement of individuals, governments and businesses in the implementation of measures throughout the year, aimed at promoting nature conservation and to promote energy saving.

WWF is actively working to get countries to increase their commitments to reduce CO2 emissions and slow the progressive increase in the temperature of the Earth. They also ask that the agreements are fair to the developing countries, which so far are the least responsible for climate change.

- How much energy is saved during the hour of blackout? : Since the objective of the campaign is to promote awareness of people with the environment and awareness of the need for sustainable consumption, there are no official records of the cost savings.

Scientists concerned about global warming

Global warming is causing storms, droughts and heat waves so intense that nations must prepare for natural disasters that cause deaths and unprecedented costs

The greatest danger is extreme weather in poor areas with high population density, but no corner of the globe is immune the report said.Scientists said some areas, particularly parts of Mumbai, India, could become uninhabitable by floods, storms and rising seas.

In 2005, dropped three feet of rain in 24 hours over the city, killing over 1,000 people and causing extensive damage. About 2.7 million people live in areas prone to flooding.

Other cities with less risk are Miami, Bangkok, Shanghai and Guangzhou, China, Ho Chi Min, Vietnam, Yangon, Mianmar, and Calcutta, India. According to the document prepared by climatologists Nobel prize winners, there will be stronger tropical cyclones and heat waves, floods and droughts more frequent.

The report of 594 pages gives the dimension of recent disasters and future to a combination of climate change induced by man, demographic changes and poverty.

In the past, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, founded in 1988 by the United Nations has focused on the slow and inexorable rise in temperature and sea levels as part of global warming.

This report is the first panel addressing extreme climate changes less common but much more noticeable, which recently have cost an average of 80,000 million dollars annually in damage. "Almost everyone has at extreme climate," said Chris Field, a climatologist at Stanford University who served as one of the main editors of the report. "That's where we have losses.

That's where we have the insurance payments. That's where things have the potential to collapse. " But not only in poor areas, "no risk of disaster almost everywhere," he added. The study predicts that some tropical cyclones such as hurricanes, will be stronger due to global warming.

The inhabitants of small island nations like the Maldives, may have to leave their homes due to increased sea levels and severe storms.
