Nobel Laureate RK Pachauri calls upon youth to save environment 16.7.2014 DNA: India
Noted environmentalist and Nobel Laureate RK Pachauri on Wednesday called upon youths to come forward to save the environment. Delivering a lecture on "Climate Change - Impacts and Adaptation" at Himachal Pradesh University here, Pachauri said checking environmental degradation was vital for ecological health of the country. He said there should be a balance between the human being and the nature. Pachauri said "continued emissions of greenhouse gases would cause further warming and changes in the climate system, oceans would continue to warm during the 21st century and it is likely that the Arctic sea ice cover will continue to shrink and Global sea level will continue to rise". He further cautioned that the length, frequency or intensity of warm spells or heat waves will increase over most land areas and a 1-in-20 year hottest day is likely to become a 1-in-2 year event in most regions.

History will condemn climate change denialists | Robert Manne 16.7.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
Tony Abbott was elected by the right-wing of his party for a single purpose: to destroy any meaningful action in Australia against the threat of climate change The argument for radical action on climate change which Australia will soon at least temporarily reject with the shameful decision to repeal the carbon tax is embarrassingly simple. For the past 200 years, western culture has granted science pre-eminent cultural authority. A quarter century ago, a consensus formed among contemporary scientists specialising in the study of the climate. The consensus comprised one principal idea: the primary source of energy on which industrial civilisation relied the burning of fossil fuels was dangerously increasing the temperature of the ...
