Monckton 'MP' throws his safari helmet in the ring 20.4.2010 Guardian: Environment
One of the world's best-known climate sceptics has registered as a candidate for a Scottish constituency in the general election Exciting election news reaches us from the Scottish parliamentary constituency of Perth and North Perthshire. Lord Monckton – one of the world's best-known climate sceptics and an ever-popular topic of discussion at this parish - has registered himself as a candidate for the UK Independence Party (UKIP) at the forthcoming general election on May 6 (although the information on the party website is out of date). A lord – viscount, no less - hoping to become an MP?! A nobleman wishing to join the ranks of a commoner? Yes, we had the same reaction, too. But everything, we are assured, is allowed. A quick call to the ...
Green policy: We need a seismic shift in thinking 20.4.2010 Guardian: Comment is Free
Tackling climate change is essential – but it must be achieved through bold strategies, not volcanic activity • General election 2010: What is your MP's environmental record? • Environment policies the parties should adopt in election 2010 The massive disruption to European air travel from the Eyjafjallajökull volcano in Iceland is a stark reminder of the massive force of nature – and the powerlessness of our actions when we feel its full might. It's a timely reminder of the urgent need to heed warnings from the world's leading climate scientists about the huge threat we face unless we slash greenhouse gas emissions and tackle global warming. But despite widespread agreement among the main political parties that climate ...

Election 2010: Climate campaigners in the marginals 20.4.2010 Guardian: Environment
Election website roundup See previous roundups here and here and send suggestions to alt.vote@guardian.co.uk It's the climate, stupid Drawing on both a Bill Clinton campaign motto and the Ancient Greeks, the It's the climate, stupid campaign from Spartans is aiming to bring together voters in marginal constituencies who care about climate change to set tests for the leading candidates and agree to back the winner . Politicians don't talk about climate change around election time because although they think voters care about climate change, they think they won't vote on it ... this vicious cycle could be broken by demonstrating that there is a committed minority willing to make it their top priority in the ballot box – and if this ...
Attractive Nuisance 20.4.2010 Mother Jones
Also from the Climate Desk: A look at global warming's implications for international litigation . If Congress and the president fail to tackle global warming, can courts step in? Can federal judges allow people struggling with the losses of global warming to sue polluters directly? The idea may at first seem crazy. In a legal world obsessed with claims of judicial activism, the image of a judge taking on a global problem like climate change seems like the punch line to a bad joke at an Exxon board meeting. But it turns out there is a long and proud history of judges addressing pollution in the absence of environmental regulation. For much of the last century—long before Congress acted—federal courts allowed plaintiffs to seek ...

Good Question: Is A Volcano Worse Than Pollution? 20.4.2010 WCCO: National
The images from the Iceland volcano are dramatic with huge plumes of ash skyrocketing and air travel in Europe halted. But with all that junk shooting in the air, is the pollution from the volcano more damaging than the pollution created by humans?

From Buenos Aires to Cochabamba | Joseph Huff-Hannon 20.4.2010 Guardian: Environment
Travellers on a long bus journey to Bolivia's climate change conference reflected the diversity of grassroots organising efforts The second time the bus broke down we were just 60 km shy of Cochabamba, a city of half a million people in central Bolivia. The sun was falling down behind the mountains, and two of the Argentines had started a fire by the side of the road. Before long, as we waited for a few taxis to ferry us the rest of the way, a round of singing had broken out around the impromptu campfire. To the tune of La Bamba some improvised lyrics were hashed out, and before long we were all singing along to our new version: "To Cochabamba!" After a few rounds our new ride showed up, and we finally made it down to the dusty city in the ...

What links the banking crisis and the volcano? | George Monbiot 20.4.2010 Guardian: Environment
We rely globally on over-complex, over-strained systems. Act now, or wait for the much more brutal corrective of nature Man proposes; nature disposes. We are seldom more vulnerable than when we feel insulated. The miracle of modern flight protected us from gravity, atmosphere, culture, geography. It made everywhere feel local, interchangeable. Nature interjects , and we encounter – tragically for many – the reality of thousands of miles of separation. We discover that we have not escaped from the physical world after all. Complex, connected societies are more resilient than simple ones – up to a point. During the east African droughts of the early 1990s, I saw at first hand what anthropologists and economists have long predicted: those ...

Iceland volcano causes fall in carbon emissions as eruption grounds aircraft 19.4.2010 Guardian: Environment
Cooling effect from volcano ash cloud will be 'very insignificant', but flight ban stops emission of estimated 2.8m tonnes of CO2 • Scientists call for research on climate link to geological hazards The eruption of the Eyjafjallajokull volcano is unlikely to have any significant impact on climate but has caused a small fall in carbon emissions, experts say. Although large eruptions such as Mount Pinatubo in 1991 can spew out enough material to shade and cool the planet, recent activity in Iceland is very small in comparison. The ash cloud has not reached the high atmosphere, where it would have the most effect, and it contains little sulphur, which forms reflective droplets of sulphuric acid. The World Meteorological Organisation in Geneva says any cooling effect from Eyjafjallajokull will be "very ...
