Global Warming: It Ought to Be Illegal

March 28, 2014 by Jim Baird

Global Warming Effects

The recent MIT article, 'How the ocean reins in global warming,' points out how burying atmospheric heat deep in the ocean delays long-term global warming. Can we be anything but criminally negligent for not acting on this readily apparent knowledge?[read more]

Hacking Global Warming [VIDEO]

Hacking Global Warming

Adding it all up, scientists estimate the total amount of heat warming the oceans, land, and atmosphere and melting ice is the equivalent of 4 Hiroshima atomic bombs worth every second. The planet is a big place. The extent of damage all of this heat does depends on where the warming occurs.[read more]

The Existential Imperative: Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion II

January 6, 2014 by Jim Baird

Ocean Heat and Energy

The fourth IPCC assessment projects that 40 to 70 percent of species could go extinct if Earth warms by 3.5 °C. Ominously a recent study by Australian and French scientists published in Nature predicts that unless greenhouse gas emissions are cut, the planet will heat up by 4°C by 2100.[read more]


Putting the Brakes on CO2 is at Best Half a Climate Solution

CO2 and Climate

A new study on continued global warming after emissions stoppage challenges the widely-accepted scientific consensus that the planet’s temperature would actually remain the same or decline if CO2 emissions suddenly stopped.[read more]

WANTED: A Climate Bounty

Climate Solutions and Rewards

Were we able to harness the force of hurricanes, we could not only service the energy needs of billions we could prevent death and destruction on a massive scale. And the crazy thing is we actually have the capability to do just that.[read more]


What's More Productive: CO2 Sequestration or Ocean Heat Sequestration?

November 12, 2013 by Jim Baird

Sequestration Effectiveness

Ocean thermal energy conversion replicates the events that have lead to the climate change hiatus and in the process offer the potential to produce at least the amount of energy we are currently deriving from fossil fuels.[read more]
