Hidden behind the regular day to day news,the supreme court has ruled for big business,to block Obama’s key emission’s pledge.
Legal challenges seem to be holding us back on the changes required to stall global warming.
A 32% reduction by 2030 has to be approved by the system it seems and may
A weird notion or movement that infringement on state rights has a group of 27 states attempting to block the move foward.
Heading this legal battle are utility companies,and coal miners.
So as of 2017, the right thing to do is on pause, and moving forward on lowering industrial emissions may never see the light of day.

You cannot change the planet alone, but remember that you, and just a few others who are determined to improve things, are the only force that ever has improved the world.

A piece of this article from the above link:
Peter Head, 60, is an unlikely man to be leading a cultural revolution. The soft-spoken Englishman, a director of Arup and one of the world’s leading bridge builders, is now the master planner of the world’s first true eco city.
His brief from the Shanghai city authorities may have been simple, but in building and design terms it was the equivalent of a moonshot: to build on an island at the mouth of the Yangtze a city for 500,000 people that can lead the world’s fastest growing economy out of the industrial age into the ecological one. Dongtan will cost $50bn or more, and be a prototype for 400 or more similar Chinese cities over the next 30 years.
Nothing like this has been tried before, Head says. “It’s a complete paradigm shift. It is to be three, four or five times an ecological improvement on anything that exists. China is trying to use ecological efficiency to detach resource use from economic growth, the traditional development path. It’s a different way of thinking. They believe a new economic model will come out of it.”
Dongtan will be all but self-sufficient, powered by wind, wood and sun. Its cars will be electric or hydrogen-fuelled, and its buildings will be mini power stations. There will be no landfill sites and 80% of waste will be recycled. Enough local food will be grown to supply much of the city’s needs. Turf-covered rooftops will collect, filter and store water, and solar panels will heat it; wind turbines will provide nearly 20% of its energy needs.
“China came to us with the idea. I was shocked by the scale of their ambition but they’re deadly serious. Every province in China is building a demonstration eco city like this.”
Can you post some of the current research, I am always interested in reading up on climate change. I must say I have a problem finding stuff that does not support what I have concluded. Anyways, send me some links.
http://judithcurry.com/ is a great place to start. There are ample links within that blog. Then look up what Tol, McKitrick and Spencer say on the issue. It’s interesting that Tol was heralded for his work supporting global warming theories, but as soon as he started questioning the IPCC reports, of which he was a lead writer, he is labeled as a fringe “denier”. Spencer was a respected scientist until he started speaking out against the prevailing theories, at which time his religious beliefs were brought up. McKitrick, and IPCC reviewer, has written extensively on the failings of the statistical inferences within the IPCC models. Look up Pielke, Tallbloke. There are good links on http://nofrakkingconsensus.com/.
WATCH: Idling vehicles of COP22 dignitaries who want US to cut emissions
@WWF: Not if we can help it! Please spread the word that we need deeper cuts on carbon emissions to give reefs a fighting chance. #COP22 #Oceans https://twitter.com/WWF/status/797641421704613888/photo/1

What’s up with climate change when see an eye opener like this and ignore it?
Is a summit just the top of a mountain or a gathering with expensive expenses and chatter?
When will industry stop the greed and ask government to regulate them?

Lets Go Canada ! It’your Time !
Canada is making regulatory changes to it’s enviromental act.
Below is an indepth survey with questionaire thats as easy as pie in your face.
Whining on FB or Twitter is not a worthy route for change.
