An international expert on climate change and its impact on political and social environments leads a RUSI conference in London on the environment and the political and security dimensions involved on a global scale.
When you receive the Seal you will see climate change as the sign of the end-times. And you will be interested to hear of some of the ideas people have come up with to stop rising temperatures, each of which is unfortunately futile.

The Prince of Wales today makes a major speech on climate change issues; he’s addressing the European Parliament session in Brussels. BSN will have a full report.
- NASA Climate Report on Global Warming which highlights the latest findings that the Arctic ice could almost be all melted by 2012. Includes teleconference with Supreme Master Ching Hai.
When you receive the Seal you will see climate change as a sign of the End-times coming. You will be interested to learn of yet another scheme dreamed up to slow it down--geoengineering with aeresols.
Mayor of Toronto, David Miller on his city's goal for climate change. "The final point I want to make is that by engaging resident, the city operation....we believe that there are huge gainst to be made. At least in Toronto's case....and that's our goal." "Cities are where change is happening the fastest and we must seize the opportunities we have been presented with to make that change significant and permanent," added Mayor Miller.
Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe. The hydrogen atom has a single electron and need to complete two. For the atoms like ... todos » to share, lend their electrons to form molecules and for a short period of time are complete. This seems to make them happy.
Here we see a carbon atom: It is an atom that plays a very important mission. It is the natural container of hydrogen. To be completely need to share four electrons and thus can be charged with four hydrogen atoms. This is very important since we have not yet found an easy way to store and transport hydrogen. The nature resolved this problem by using carbon container.
The water molecule is very stable and requires a lot of energy to break their links. Here we are presented with the first problem to the use of hydrogen as a fuel. Many people talk of using hydrogen energy as a solution to the energy problem, but hydrogen is not an energy, actually serves as a vector load, it works rather like a battery, for energy in a hydrogen fuel cell, first we have to apply power to obtain hydrogen through electrolysis.
We try to obtain hydrogen artificially, but again nature leads us millions of years ahead. We can say that if we can store a hydrogen in carbon we have is wood.
If we add more hydrogen get a paraffin, grease or oil, which is a good fuel for diesel engines. In fact the first diesel engine was tested for the first time with peanut oil. The diesel engine is designed to use vegetable oils.
If we add more hydrogen obtain alcohol. Alcohol is equivalent to gasoline, echo of the early twentieth century manufacturers like Ford and inventors like Edison gambled by biofuels since they were much cleaner. The Model T Ford, the first car production line, had a carburetor that suited both gasoline and alcohol, because then there were no gas stations and many farmers have distilled alcohol themselves.
Large investments in the booming oil industry, the abarató cotes of petrol and we already know who won the race.
As I said if we add even more hydrogen to carbon that becomes a gas methane or natural gas. I suppose that initially seemed cheap. But I wonder: What will be the price we have to pay? The bill comes with oil surcharge.
The CO2 emissions into the atmosphere create the greenhouse effect. By burning underground reserves of fossil fuels in a few years. We are issuing a CO2 to the atmosphere does not meet an extra cycle. Someone once told me: CO2 is always CO2 and was right at least in part. Since CO2 more sulphur, mercury, lead, etc. ... It is no longer simply CO2 becomes complex molecules, which can not be assimilated by nature.
In some cities pollutant emissions from the vehicles are so high that you can hardly breathe.
This graph is very important, this graph shows the levels of CO2 in the atmosphere for nearly half a million years and we can see how the temperature increases when nivelas increase of CO2 in all these years, people not involved in this short period time we see as CO2 levels beyond the graphic. How do you react climate of the earth? Nobody knows! Never in the entire history we have found a level so high.
Cycle CO2 IN mostly is delivered by the man and is absorbed by the vegetation in the forests and the microplactón in the seas, being deposited in the form of carbon in the deep ocean.
Energy consumption in the world by continent and people: Just to think that all these countries with large populations, they want to follow in our footsteps, leaving Asia bicycles to drive cars. We face an enormous problem.
The energy consumption continues to increase, and almost all the energy we use comes from fossil fuels, which aggravates the problem environment.
Here I wanted to get! It is as we have seen each day consume more oil ye paradox here, in 2010 within 2 years, the oil production peak is therefore from that date will begin to be depleted, its extraction will become much more face and that for the oil exit to the surface, where the wells are below the average capacity, we need to inject water or gas under pressure, so that the fuel can escape to the surface. After its refining also becomes more expensive. But some experts believe that the maximum production has already been exceeded, which surpassed last year. As an example you say that 3 years ago a barrel of oil cost 18 dollars and now is about 100.
When you receive the Seal you will see global warming as the coming End of the world. You will be interested to hear how the European Union is having trouble agreeing on what to do to fight climate change.
When you receive the Seal you will see climate change as the coming End-times. You will be interested to learn how glaciers all around the world are quickly melting, threatening calamity for billions of people.
Leading climate and meteorological experts have been meeting in the UK to discuss oceanic damage and continuing fallout from ongoing global extreme weather incidents.
When you receive the Seal you will recognize climate change as the coming End-times. You will see what is happening in the Arctic--there is much less "perennial" sea ice now and it is being replaced by short-lived sea ice.
Young climate change campaigners from all over the world- and involved in a long term British Council project- get the chance to talk about their environmental concerns with a British Minister.
The British Medical Association says climate change could bring malaria and other infectious diseases to the UK. It is calling on all health professionals to take a lead on warning about the possible future repercussions.
David Cameron's first visit to China as Leader of the Opposition included a meeting with the man who was negotiating for the Chinese at the recent United Nations Climate Change Conference in Bali.
We're never going to solve the problems of climate change without China being fully engaged and fully involved in the whole process.
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s special climate change advisor, John Ashton, sets out the issues facing Britain on climate change and the continuing need to change from high carbon to low carbon economies.
