People say we're running out of energy. That's only true if we stick with these old 19th century technologies. We are awash in energy from sunlight.

First sign that humanity is slowing its carbon surge

RATE THIS! +50
Posted in Science on 9th Nov, 2013 01:50 AM by AlexMuller

2012 may go down in history as a remarkable year. For the first time, the maddening pace of humanity's greenhouse gas emissions showed signs of a global slowdown. Unlike the drop in emissions triggered by the 2008 recession – the let-off is happening at the same time as global wealth continues to swell.

 
"The small increase in emissions [of 2012]... may be the first sign of a more permanent slowdown in the increase of global CO2 emissions, and ultimately of declining global emissions," declares the Trends in Global CO2 Emissions: 2013 Report, published by the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency and the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) last week. It analyses the latest emissions data, right up to 2012.
 
The news should provide fresh momentum for UN negotiations on a new climate treaty, which resume in Poland on Monday.
 
To avoid more than 2 °C of climate change – the target agreed in the 2009 talks – global emissions need to drop fast. We are nowhere near this goal, but the 2012 figures offer a first sign that action taken by the world's biggest emitters is having a measurable effect. "This signals a shift towards less fossil-fuel intensive activities, more use of renewable energy and increased energy saving," says Jos Olivier of the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency.
 
The data show that global carbon dioxide emissions rose by 1.4 per cent in 2012. Allowing for it being a leap year, the underlying increase was just 1.1 per cent, says the report, compared with an average of 2.9 per cent since 2000.
 
Importantly, the emissions rise is considerably less than the increase in global GDP of 3.5 per cent. "We see a decoupling of CO2 emissions from global economic growth," says Greet Janssens-Maenhout of the JRC in Ispra, Italy, a co-author on the report.

04,The survey was based on responses of 648 randomly sampled small business members of the NFIB throughout the month of December. I thought for a moment that Kerry was going to blow Rep Jeff Duncan (R-SC) launched into a self-righteous soliloquy about Benghazi the IRS the National Security Agency and what he portrayed as Kerrys longtime aversion to using military force Kerry you may recall is a highly decorated Vietnam combat veteran Duncan is an armchair warrior"I am not going to sit here and be told by you that I dont have a sense of what the judgment is with respect to this" Kerry said But he held it together and gave Duncan a more civil answer than he deserved "This is not about getting into Syrias civil war" Kerry explained "This is about enforcing the principle that people shouldnt be allowed to gas their citizens with impunity"For Sen John McCain (R-Ariz) the question is to shape the outcome of the war As the price of his vote to authorize a strike McCain insisted that include language calling on Obama to "change the military equation on the battlefield"I respect McCains knowledge and experience on military matters even when I disagree with him In this case I think hes hallucinatingIn Iraq with US forces occupying the country and a compliant government installed it took a huge troop surge and a long counterinsurgency campaign to beat back the jihadists who threatened to take over part of the country In Syria with no boots on the ground and a hostile regime clinging to power how is Obama supposed to ensure that the "good" rebels triumph over the "bad" ones Why does McCain think we have it in our power to favorably change the equation now Let me clarify: I believe that a US strike of the kind being discussed involving cruise missiles and perhaps other air-power assets can make it more likely that Assad loses But I also believe that absent a major commitment of American forces which is out of the question we cannot determine who winsFor some skeptics on Capitol Hill the question is why we dont wait for others to act the United Nations perhaps or some of the 188 other nations that have ratified the outlawing atrocities such as those committed in Syria I guess hope springs eternal but thats how long the wait will be Russia has vetoed every attempt by the UN Security Council to act France is willing but wont go it alone Maybe all this reluctance is a warning that we too should demur But lets at least be honest with ourselves: If we dont act nobody will The clear message to Assad and to other tyrants will be that poison gas is frowned upon but not prohibitedThere is no way that Assad can be shamed into contrition and atonement; at this point hes fighting not just for power but for his life He has to believe that if he loses the war and is captured by rebels be they the "good" ones or the "bad" he will be tried and executed like Saddam Hussein or perhaps killed on the spot like Moammar Gaddafi If someone has a workable plan to snatch Assad and his henchmen haul them before the International Criminal Court and put them on trial Im all ears As things stand however the possibility of someday facing charges in the Hague must be low on the Syrian dictators list of worriesIf Assad and his government are ever to be held accountable for the use of forbidden weapons to murder hundreds of civilians the only realistic way for that to happen is a punitive US-led military strike This is the question that Obama put on the table and that too many members of Congress seem determined to avoidRead more from or You can also join him Tuesdays at 1 pm for a a personal advisor and spokesman for Soros, told us this: "It is disingenuous to use Georges comments that way.

This is a pioneer in wearable fitness tracking devices and you’re as likely to see it peeking out from under a cuff-linked shirtsleeve as on the wrist of the person next to you in Zoomba class. It measures the steps take and the energy it takes to get there. You set targets and that can be a great incentive to walk, run or take the stairs instead of taking the couch potato route. It syncs with a mobile app, letting you track your progress and impress your friends — another incentive to keep moving, you don’t want everyone to know you spent the day watching Netflix and eating chips.

Enfin, je ne pense pas que le packing soit nocif en soi, en tout cas tel qu'il est présenté devant la caméra. Ce qui est nocif c'est de prétendre qu'il s'agit là de thérapie. Les moyens publics sont limités et les psychiatres comportementalistes du secteur public aimeraient sans doute que leurs méthodes soient moins cantonnées au secteur privé, ce qui prive beaucoup de familles modestes de l'accès à ces soins. C'est sans doute ce qui motive une certaine agressivité, en parlant de "nocivité", vis-à-vis de ceux, d'orientation psychanalytique, qui occupent le champ institutionnel et captent les deniers publics... de toutes les polémiques.... Je me souviens... (et même si c'est un "marronnier" c'est tous les ans la même émotion...) Reply

It can be confusing, but when you're looking at your monitor it actually makes the interviewer feel as if you're looking away. Instead, look directly at the video camera you're using for your interview. And although you're not making eye contact in the traditional sense, this is the way that the interviewer perceives that you're looking straight ahead. Reply

With its network OS and LAN Manager not selling it decided to focus on hardware and integration, just as Novell started to give up making hardware and focus on systems. 3Com would now support Netware as well as 3&plus, which was a good thing as not a lot of people were buying 3&plus.
