Those crazy Californians...maybe a lawsuit will finally get the oil companies, and ultimately their consumers, to pay for the mess they create:

Two Bay Area counties and a Southern California city concerned about rising sea levels sued 37 of the world’s biggest oil and coal companies Monday, claiming the fossil fuel giants should pay for damages wrought by climate change — a first-of-its-kind challenge that some liken to the high-stakes litigation of the tobacco industry in the 1990s.

Marin County, San Mateo County and Imperial Beach (San Diego County) filed separate but nearly identical lawsuits in their respective Superior Court offices that seek to tie fossil fuel development to climate-related problems in coastal areas. Lawyers for the three communities worked together to document such effects as more frequent flooding and beach erosion as well as the possibility that water will eventually inundate roads, airports, sewage treatment plants and other real estate.

The lawyers contend that the oil companies knew about the damage their actions were causing, denied it and sought to discredit scientific findings that greenhouse gas emissions were heating the Earth’s atmosphere.

The suits are the latest in a small but growing effort to hold Chevron, ExxonMobil, BP, Shell and other major energy companies accountable for the effects of global warming. Legal experts say the challenge is more comprehensive than previous endeavors, and is based on better climate science and more evidence to support a claim of conspiracy among oil company executives.

When the iceberg does break free and sail into the Southern Ocean, it should not contribute to sea level rise, since it's already on the water. But if the full Larsen C ice shelf collapses, the land-based glaciers that it is holding back could have a significant impact on sea level.

Largest Ice berg in modern times is about to break from Antarctica. This berg alone can raise the sea level 3.9 inches. More than all increases in the last twenty years. Current teenagers will see the results of the heavy warming trend. Cities under water. Mass extinction. The history books will list the current Republicans in congress as some of the greatest fools in history.

Have a nice day.

I know this was discussed in a thread a couple months back (dont recall which), and poo pooed by some, but here's another take...like the discussion on the alternatives.  But if industry isnt forced to absorb the cost of the pollution, what incentive do they have to convert to better alternatives?

Dirty laundry: Are your clothes polluting the ocean?

  • 6 July 2017

In an indoor "Manchester-drizzle-simulating" rain room at the University of Leeds, and in a laundry lab in Plymouth, research is revealing the unexpected environmental cost of the very clothes on our backs.

"Not many people know that lots of our clothes are made of plastic," says Imogen Napper, a PhD student at Plymouth University, "polyester, acrylic."

Ms Napper and Prof Richard Thompson study marine microplastics - fragments and fibres found in the ocean surface, the deep sea and the marine food chain.

And in a recent lab study, they found that polyester and acrylic clothing shed thousands of plastic fibres each time it was washed- sending another source of plastic pollution down the drain and, eventually, into the ocean.

"My friends always make fun of me because they think of marine biology as such a sexy science - it's all turtles, hot countries and bikinis," says Ms Napper.

"But I've been spending hours washing clothes and counting the fibres."

It might not be exotic, but this painstaking "laundry-science" has revealed that an average UK washing load - 6kg (13lb) of fabric - can release:

I like her. 

I've always said that Green energy is about greenbacks. When we installed a very large cooling system at our old building, I spent an extra $250,000 on super efficient chillers. We got a rebate from the energy company that covered about half of that, and I could show a savings of about $40K a year in energy costs right away and more as energy costs rise in the future. When I showed the project to the board of directors I didn't say anything about green tech, I said "4 year ROI on a  piece of equipment with a 20 year life, we'll make an extra million dollars by spending $125K now". There wasn't even a discussion about cheaper alternatives.
