Three reasons why climate change is real, and humans are causing it | David Waltham 25.6.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
Paleoclimatology can answer the question of anthropogenic climate change by using fossils to show links between global temperatures and CO2 levels Dire warnings of imminent human-induced climate disaster are constantly in the news but predictions of the end of the world have been made throughout history and have never yet come true. Even in the brief period of recorded history, natural climate change has always been with us whether it is the volcanically induced crop failures that helped precipitate the French revolution or the medieval warm period that allowed Vikings to colonise Greenland. So how can we trust that the computer models scientists use to make predictions are ...

Greenpeace: Of convenient lies and inconvenient truth? 16.6.2014 Rediff: Columns
'Greenpeace has been brutal in targeting both India and the Manmohan Singh government. The push to go after Indian coal is driven by its long-term agenda. What is surprising is that China has not been meted out the same treatment, despite the fact that the rise of China as an economic power has been built around generating power from coal.

Chinese hints, US emission cuts fall far short of climate cure 11.6.2014 DNA: Popular News
China's hints that it will cap its soaring greenhouse gas emissions and a U.S. plan to cut emissions in the power sector, while representing a shift, do not add up to a strong cure for global warming by the world's top two emitters. Other nations have hailed Washington and Beijing for a newfound commitment to tackle climate change. Governments are working on a deal, due in Paris in late 2015, to slow rising temperatures to avert more heatwaves, floods and rising seas. Yet after a rush of enthusiasm, there are uncertainties -especially about China. On June 2, Washington said it planned to cut emissions from existing power plants by 30 percent below 2005 levels by 2030 as the centrepiece of climate action by President Barack Obama. Chinese officials followed up by saying Beijing is considering a cap, for the first time, on the nation's emissions. European Climate Commissioner Connie Hedegaard cautioned against celebrating about China, whose carbon dioxide emissions have almost quadrupled since 1990 amid ...
