Climate Change Part 3: Avoiding Disaster

The Drivers of Change

There are three key stake holders that all need to engage:

1.      The public, who are currently the main catalysts for change that are driving the other two stakeholder groups.

2.      Corporations, who are seeking to respond to shareholder and customer demands

3.      Governments who, in the democracy’s of the world, are being slowly forced into action by their electorates. (However dictatorships are dependant on the vision of their leader!)

Climate Change Part 2: The Tipping Point of Reality

Political and Scientific Denial

Until recently, climate change was considered just a figment of some peoples imagination by the worlds establishments. Some have even demeaned the clear scientific evidence to call it a new religion. Both, as the evidence now shows, have been negligent and wrong respectively.

Climate Change Part 1 Framing the Geopolitical Problem

Climate change has not occurred at some arbitrary point, but at a specific phase in our human history - as two industrial super empires co-exist. On the one hand, the US, the last offspring of the WCSE, which peaked in 1990 and has since been in decline. On the other hand, the rise of China as the second empire of the Super Asian Empire as the industrial power house of the world.

Climate change: The bubbles are rising

For well over a decade Breaking the Code of History (BTCH) has argued that the increasing CO2 levels in the atmosphere have reached a critical point where, even if we stopped putting in anymore C02 into our atmosphere going forward, we have built in an 11-degree temperature shift in our climate which will be catastrophic.

The evidence given in BTCH demonstrates that climate change is a very real phenomenon. The future temperature levels implied by the current 400pm Co2 concentrations (up 42.8% from 280ppm before the industrial revolution) are 10 degrees above pre-industrial levels. With such a wide potential gap we should prepare ourselves for climate changes that are much more rapid than currently expected and that will be a massive impact upon our way of life accross the planet.

Ocean Heat Sinks

The generally held perception that global warming is a linear process is one only held by non-scientists. I have repeatedly pointed out that the present apparent pause in global warming, that data suggests has occurred since 1998, does not invalidate the reality of global warming, but is caused as oceanic heat sinks absorb some of the increased energy from our atmosphere. The mechanism of this process has been recently highlighted by professor Matthew England from the University of New South Wales.

Welcome to Climate Reality

On August 29th 2005 Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans and its resultant storm surge breached the neglected  flood defences in 50 places. Two days later 80% of the city was flooded and 80/90% of the population was evacuated. Sadly, the western world missed the obvious lessons. Climate change will create greater energy in our atmosphere and produce more high energy weather events so that when  they collide with population centres significant damage will result.
