Review: Peter Seligman’s “Australian Sustainable Energy - by the numbers”. Climate catastrophe avoidable
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Friday July 9, 2010
1 comment
The important study “Australian Sustainable Energy - by the numbers” by Professor Peter Seligman (University of Melbourne, Melbourne, Australia, 2010) must be emulated by scientists and engineers for every country in the World. The looming climate catastrophe and climate genocide do not have to happen. “Australian Sustainable Energy - by the numbers” by Peter Seligman is a very important book for Australia and indeed the whole World. As an expertly compiled, (...)

Gulf oil & gas disaster, lobbyists, Obama & huge threat of natural gas (methane) to Humanity & Biosphere
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Saturday June 19, 2010
5 comments
Methane is 72 times worse than carbon dioxide (CO2) as a greenhouse gas (GHG) on a 20 year time scale and industrial leakage of methane (1.5% to 2.2%) has led Professor Robert Howarth, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, to conclude that "A complete consideration of all emissions from using natural gas seems likely to make natural gas far less attractive than oil and not significantly better than coal in terms of the consequences for global warming." Yet President Barack Obama has (...)

World Environment Day Message: "Effective actions are possible. But delay must not be an option"
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Monday June 7, 2010
World Environment Day (5 June 2010) has just passed but the worsening Climate Emergency remains. Members of the prestigious US Academy of Sciences (255 members, including 11 Nobel laureates) have recently signed a statement about climate change in which they conclude : “Society has two choices: we can ignore the science and hide our heads in the sand and hope we are lucky, or we can act in the public interest to reduce the threat of global climate change quickly and substantively. (...)

Questions Q&A won’t ask re Australian climate racism, climate terrorism & climate genocide
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Monday May 3, 2010
Australia is a world leader in annual per capita greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution. Thus the annual per capita Domestic and Exported GHG pollution of Australia is 54 tonnes CO2-equivalent (CO2-e) per person per year as compared to 60 times less (0.9 tonnes CO2-e per person per year) for Bangladesh, a densely populated mega-delta country acutely threatened by man-made global warming. Top climate scientists say that the World must urgently reduce the atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) (...)

"LNG = clean energy" Greenhouse Gas Untruth makes the Australian Apartheid Labor Party Unfit to Govern
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Sunday February 7, 2010
The extreme right wing, pro-war, pro-coal, human rights-abusing, spin-driven Australian Labor Government has repeatedly declared that it is instituting an “education revolution”. However a key element of the teaching and learning process called “education” is correct information (I must note here that this is my 5th decade of teaching science students at a leading Australian university and that, unlike most of my colleagues, I have a postgraduate qualification in (...)

The World is facing what an overwhelming international scientific consensus says is a worsening Climate Crisis, Climate Emergency and Sustainability Emergency from man-made global warming (anthropogenic global warming, AGW).

Proposed draconian punishment for Australian anti-coal demonstrators invading power plants
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Thursday January 28, 2010
The State of Victoria, Australia, is the worst carbon polluting state in the worst carbon polluting country in the World. Most of Victoria’s electricity comes from the burning of brown coal at huge power stations like Loy Yang and Hazelwood in the eastern Victorian region called Gippsland. Unfortunately Victoria is ruled by a right wing, pro-coal Labor Government that is busy building superhighways, fossil fuel-burning power stations and a huge desalination plant.

Australia, the US and the EU are sabotaging Copenhagen COP15 climate summit and sabotaging Climate Justice which requires (a) equal per capita GHG pollution for all men plus (b) a penalty for huge First World historical pollution (73% of 1750-2006 carbon pollution; see Dr James Hansen’s 2008 Open Letter to PM Kevin Rudd of Australia: ).

24 October is United Nations Day but has also been nominated as 350 Day by 350.org and other climate activists who , informed by top scientists, are informing the world that 350 parts per million (ppm) carbon dioxide (CO2) is the highest level of CO2 permissible for a safe planet. Indeed, top climate scientists and the prestigious, umpteen Nobel Laureate UK Royal Society state that the atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration must be returned to 300-350 parts per million (ppm) ASAP (...)

One Big Circle

By David Glenn Cox As the late Jim Croce once said, “Gonna tell you a story that you won’t believe.” The other day I read a news story about NASA’s measurements of the growing ocean acidity in the Arctic Ocean. The acidity of the water was making the ocean warmer because it was holding more heat and removing less carbon dioxide from the air. Then fortunately, or unfortunately, I was sidetracked by the next big Tea Bagger movement. The Google ad at the bottom of the (...)

Legal Accountability of People, Politicians, Corporations and Countries for War Crimes and Climate Crimes

Top climate scientists in the top scientific journal Nature recently stated that we have exceeded 3 of 9 crucial planetary boundaries beyond which we are at high risk of unacceptable environmental change. These and other top climate scientists and biologists are stating clearly that the atmospheric CO2 concentration must be urgently returned to 300-350 ppm for planetary safety. Unfortunately World governments are ignoring the science and are committed to increasing CO2. However there can (...)

The World is facing a worsening climate emergency and a worsening climate genocide. Already 16 million people die avoidably each year from deprivation and deprivation-exacerbated disease (see my book “Body Count. Global avoidable mortality since 1950” , G.M.

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok.

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
