For those who want to learn about environmental issues and stay up to date with what's going on with our environment check out this Greentumble blog. It's scary to read about all the threats that overconsumption are bringing on and how hard is for us to stop polluting our waters, lands and air. Some of the articles there are really good, while some not that interesting but still...overall it's worth a check from time to time.

If you guys have some other websites related to environmental issues post them here in this thread. I want to make the change in my lifestyle to protect environment and I hope others will join me too.


Let's make the world a better place to live.

Hi KeiranK,

I strongly recommend the movie Cowspiracy which is available on Netflix and also at Cowspiracy.com as a pay per view (about $5). If that hasn't turned you in a vegan, then check out my webpage:

www.trafn.com/fecesfarming.html

This describes in detail how big agribusiness feeds livestock (cows, pig, fish, chickens, etc.) their own feces to save on feed costs. Even the United Nations backs this policy and has been teaching it to farmers world wide since the 1980's. I listed links to online "feed" manuals that you can read for yourself.

The heat island effect occurs when urban areas accumulate more solar heat than the surrounding countryside, producing temperatures that are up to 22℉ (12℃) warmer in the city than in its surrounding rural areas. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, a city with a population of at least 1 million people is, on average, 1.8-5.4℉ (1-3 ℃) warmer than nearby rural areas¹.


Don't expect any sort of decent science out of this.

The place you will find it 12c warmer than the country side is inside a heated building. Or not up the mountain.

Enjoy.

@Tim the Plumber - you know Tim, two of the things we encourage on this website are free thinking and free expression, as long as they're done with respect towards others. Another thing we encourage here is to stay on topic, so as to not take a particular thread off into distracting tangents. Might I suggest this post for your consideration:

A better way to post on Climate-debate.com

With regards to the above, might now I ask:

1. Though an interesting statement highly worthy of its own thread, in what way does your post above pertain to this thread (i.e. - I don't see your topic mentioned anywhere here previously)?

2. Would you please provide further explanation regarding your sentence, "Or not up the mountain." For example, are you referring to the bottom of the ocean, or the sea level ice sheets of Antarctica?

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration regarding these matters.

1, The quote is from the link in the Grrentube blog. I think that's reasonably on topic as that's the subject of the thread.

2, The sentence should read "Or up a mountain".

My objective was to review, a little, the origonal post's blog. By talking about the level of accuracy (very low) of the information on it.

Thanks for the suggestion. Cowspiracy looks interesting indeed. I will watch it sometimes this weekend for sure


@Tim I found the same information about the 12 degrees C on http://www2.epa.gov/heat-islands

Not sure if you know about EPA, they are quite popular nowadays regarding environmental protection. "...EPA has approximately 15,193 full-time employees and engages many more people on a contractual basis. More than half of EPA human resources are engineers, scientists, and environmental protection specialists..."

Anyway, as trafn said, let's not transform the thread into a debate.

@Tim Why you do not recommend your favorite blog about environmental protection?

KeiranK,

OK, here is my favorite bit about CO2/GW.

http://www.populartechnology.net/2009/10/peer-reviewed-papers-supporting.html

I am far more interested and caring of humans than other species though.

Global Warming is the enhancement of Earth's average surface temperature due to effects of various greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide emissions from various industries and burning fossil fuels or from deforestation, which will trap heat that would otherwise escape from Earth. This is a kind of greenhouse effect.

Jack - I hope you don't believe any of that without actually looking into it. CO2 is a TRACE GAS. We have increased a trace gas by 1/3rd. Since the only open wavelength of that gas is already in saturation no increase would make any significant difference.

The greenhouse effect wouldn't be TRAPPING heat but slowing its radiation into space. However that is nothing more than a hoax.

Tim points out that there is an urban heat island effect. This means NOT that these areas heat the Earth any but that the temperature monitoring stations are in these areas and they measure increased heat where none effects but simply locally.

And it also really screws up the temperature monitoring with ground stations because the heat island effect is STRONGLY sensitive to wind speeds. Winds of more than 22 kph completely erase the effects. Therefore they can say that the surrounding rural areas and the urban areas have exactly the same temperatures a large proportion of the time. This throws off criticism that for the other proportion of the time that there is a large disparity.

What degree of warming do you expect to happen due to a doubling of CO2?

I would appreciate the answer in Watts per square meter.

From this when do you think that this will happen from now, ie, when will we see a doubling of CO2 from now?

Do you think that this will cause massive damage? If so what would be the worste single aspect of this?
