Heading Towards Paris: Where We Are Today

The following article points out that no matter how successful the negotiations are in Paris in December, they will be totally insufficient to limit the impacts a warming climate will have on civilization to a tolerable level.  But progress is progress. It is very significant...

Now It’s Peak Oil in China in the News: And Sooner Than Anyone Imagined

Information continues to come out of China that the leadership there is engineering an about face when it comes to fossil fuels AND transportation.  China is beginning to head in a new direction… and relatively fast.  And the rest of the world had better take heed.   While...

Hey Skeptics: China Really Has Turned Against Coal

Using China as an excuse for not taking action on Climate Change is no longer a valid reason (as if it ever was).  As I have been writing about for a couple of years now, they get it and have been taking steps to reign in their particulate and CO2 emissions.  And now the facts...

Could China’s CO2 Emissions Peak Before 2020??

Too often I hear skeptics tell me that it doesn’t matter what we do about eliminating our carbon emissions here in the US because China is opening a new coal plant every week.   While that was true at one point, it is not the case anymore.   And not only have China’s...

China is Saying the Right Things About Climate Change

A short note to start the week…  China.  We’ll see what they actually do but at least they are now saying the right things.     I know there are skeptics out there that get this email but it’s better to hear the Chinese say the right things and hopefully act on their words rather...

Will China Leave the US in the Dust on Climate Change?

I have previously sent you posts about what is going on in China in regards to their “getting it” in regards to climate change, air pollution and green energy.  In response, a few people have written back that I am naive to think that China is doing anything other than destroying...
