A Christian worldview that denies climate change and disparages news from mainstream media sources may be the reason why evangelicals do not take global warming seriously. Is there anything that can be done?
A new study finds permafrost melting is happening sooner and faster than expected, putting the earth in danger of significantly higher temperatures if the Paris climate accords are not adhered to.
The United States. “We” elected a man who for decades has had a reputation as a con man. What could go wrong?… ♠ He talked about bringing all Americans health care — more affordable and cheaper health care. Turns out, after trying to push through a health care plan that would result in ~20 million Americans losing […]
While there are a lot of moving parts to the global economy, I’d argue that there is one fundamental premise that will have, hand’s down, the greatest influence in determining the fate of humanity, and that is the time horizon of strategizing a particular activity—short term vs. long term thinking. Take any industry, whether it’s […]
Originally published on EdenKeeper.org Creation Care leaders are predicting the coming Trump presidency will prompt more ecojustice activism, including non-violent civil disobedience, within US faith communities. Writing for Baptist News, Jeff Brumley states that “Faith-based protests of pipeline projects, global warming and other environmental causes won’t just be for the hard core anymore, thanks to […]
Corals Grow To Be Much, Much Older Than Previously Assumed, Research Finds — Implications Relating To Ocean Acidification & Coral Bleaching Events
Specific coral genotypes (“individuals”) can live for more than 5,000 years (at the least) according to new research from the National Marine Fisheries Service, Penn State, and Dial Cordy & Associates. The findings — based on research focused on elkhorn corals (Acropora palmata) living around Florida and in the Caribbean — mean that corals are […]
Originally published on EdenKeeper.org Formally blessed and sanctified, 150 solar panels forming a 38 kW array have been pressed into religious service at the iconic Gloucester Cathedral in Gloucestershire, England. Dubbed the oldest cathedral in the world to install solar panels, the new photovoltaic system will help reduce the ancient cathedral’s energy costs by 25%. […]
The USGS estimates that 10 million tons of CO2 was released over the 9 hour eruption of Mount St. Helens in 1980. That’s a pretty huge number, but passenger vehicles in the USA alone emit as much CO2 as a Mt St. Helens eruption happening somewhere in America every 3 days.
In direct response to over-the-top consumer spending “holidays” like Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday offers an excellent opportunity to help support our valiant non-profit organizations and our overburdened Earth. Why not celebrate #GivingTuesday by planting trees? Partnering with the Arbor Day Foundation, Home Care Assistance has announced it will plant 5,000 new trees in […]
Originally published on Edenkeeper.org Violence is escalating against the Water Protectors of the Standing Rock Sioux. On Sunday night, November 20th, temperatures were below freezing when peaceful protesters were fired on with water cannons, tear gas, and rubber bullets. We need to act now to help support their peaceful, unarmed efforts to protect their sacred […]
Retreat Of Pine Island Glacier In West Antarctica Began In 1940s, Through Ocean-Driven Thinning & Retreat Of Sea-Ice Shelves (Climate Change), Research Finds
The retreat and thinning of Pine Island Glacier in West Antarctica, which had been known to go back at least as far as satellite monitoring of the region in the early 1990s, began all the way back in the 1940s — owing to ocean-driven thinning and retreat of sea-ice shelves, thereby leading to inland-glacier acceleration […]
The world is waiting to hear what President-elect Donald Trump has in mind for governing the U.S. Among the biggest questions is what will happen to the budget for climate and energy-related activities.
Global emissions have been essentially flat for the past three years even though total global economic activity has increased in each of those three years. That is about to change as Donald Trump wreaks havoc on US emissions policies.
On election day, forget about e-mails and pussy grabbing. Vote for people who will protect the earth and everyone on it. America cannot afford to have stupid leaders.
A study in France claims that climate change could turn portions of Spain and other Mediterranean areas into deserts by 2100.
Cognitive dissonance is what happens when someone tries to convince you something is true that you know to be false. Wearing a tin foil hat will not protect you from alien body snatchers and clicking your heels three times will not teleport you from the Land of Oz back to Kansas. Cognitive dissonance is perhaps […]
Originally published on EdenKeeper.org By calling on Oklahomans to pray for oil, Governor Mary Fallin has stretched the limits of my patience and perhaps a little bit of my better judgment. Governor Fallin would have us all believe that it’s been a really tough year for the oil industry. In fact, it’s been so bad […]
Arctic sea ice is disappearing. The area covered by sea ice is half what it was 30 years ago but it is also only 1/4 as thick as well. Sea ice is a measure of global temperatures. Are we smart enough to heed the warning?
Originally published on Green Building Elements Sweltering in the hot desert sun, Masdar City sits under a global microscope at the nexus of rising clean technology and the development of sustainable urban life in the glaring light of climate change. Conceived on a zero-moisture stretch of barren desert sand in Abu Dhabi, UAE, the zero-carbon, […]
