The Timing and Significance of the Pope’s Encyclical: Laudato Si! (Praise be to you!)

It is entirely appropriate that His Holiness the Pope would have issued his Encyclical: Laudato Si!on May 24,2015 just six months prior to the United Nations Climate Change Conference of Parties No 21, held in Paris from November 30th to December 12th, 2015.The Conference was convened to agree on the action to be taken by the global community of Nations on Caring for the Planet we call Home, with emphasis on the mitigation of and adaption to the impacts of Climate Change.

It is generally agreed that we have been negligent in our stewardship of the resources with which the planet has been endowed – its natural capital. My interpretation of His Holiness the Pope’s encyclical is that it courageously goes beyond an assessment of the state of the environment (which tends to be the main focus of scientists and world leaders at the Climate Change Conferences) and addresses an Inconvenient Truth – that the state of the environment is a physical manifestation of systemic flaws in our human relationships and in our values and ethics. By transforming ourselves, we can reshape our relationship with our environment into one of global citizens truly caring for our common home.

March temperatures continue global heat streak for a record 11 months

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), March’s average global temperature of 54.9 degrees (12.7 Celsius) was not only the hottest March ever, but is a continuation of a record escalation of temperatures that started last May.

NOAA climate scientist Jessica Blunden says that the 11 consecutive heat records surpass the previous record holder: a streak of 10 in 1944.   Continue reading

In a move many are hailing as a “turning point” in the climate fight, 20 state Attorneys General on Tuesday launched an unprecedented, multi-state effort to investigate and prosecute the “high-funded and morally vacant forces” that have stymied attempts to combat global warming—starting with holding ExxonMobil and other industry giants accountable for fraud and suppression of key climate science.

Show the love this Valentine’s Day

Beautiful things are possible. We can protect this life we love from climate change, if enough of us show we care… The changes needed to protect our world have begun. We can have 100% clean energy within a generation – but it needs us to show our love to make it happen.

Zika Virus: Our Dystopian Climate Future

I’ve spent much of my life chronicling the ongoing tragedies stemming from global warming: the floods and droughts and storms, the failed harvests and forced migrations. But no single item on the list seems any more horrible than the emerging news from South America about the newly prominent Zika disease.
