Climate Change Daily Vid Sept 18 2017:Game Of Thrones ‘Kingslayer’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Talks Climate Change

Game Of Thrones ‘Kingslayer’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Talks Climate Change AM Joy MSNBC

Westeros are facing an existential threat from an army of the Dead that is steadily marching south for total war which would likely end with the extinction of mankind but some characters are content to ignore that threat and focus on internal politics instead sound familiar.

Many viewers and bloggers are seeing the blockbuster HBO show as making a statement using the White Walkers as an analogy for climate change I think they may be on to something?!?!

There is no country in the world that is not experiencing first-hand the drastic effects of climate change. Greenhouse gas emissions continue to rise, and are now more than 50 percent higher than their 1990 level. Further, global warming is causing long-lasting changes to our climate system, which threatens irreversible consequences if we do not take action now.

 The annual average losses from earthquakes, tsunamis, tropical cyclones and flooding amount to hundreds of billions of dollars, requiring an investment of US$6 billion annually in disaster risk management alone.

The goal aims to mobilize $100 billion annually by 2020 to address the needs of developing countries and help mitigate climate-related disasters. Helping more vulnerable regions, such as land locked countries and island states, adapt to climate change must go hand in hand with efforts to integrate disaster risk measures into national strategies.

It is still possible, with the political will and a wide array of technological measures, to limit the increase in global mean temperature to two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. This requires urgent collective action.

UNDP works in about 170 countries and territories, helping to achieve the eradication of poverty, and the reduction of inequalities and exclusion. We help countries to develop policies, leadership skills, partnering abilities, institutional capabilities and build resilience in order to sustain development results.

Climate Change Daily VId Sept 17 2017:Neil deGrasse Tyson scolds cherry picking climate science

Neil deGrasse Tyson scolds cherry picking climate science

What's happening here is they're people who have cultural political religious economic philosophies that they then invoke when they want to cherry-pick one scientific result or another.
You can find a scientific paper that says practically anything and the press which I count you as part of the press will sometimes find a single paper so here's a new truth if this study holds it but an emergent scientific truth for it to become an objective truth the truth that is true, whether or not you believe in it requires more than one scientific paper, it requires a whole system of people's research. 
All leaning in the same direction all pointing to the same consequences that's what we have with climate change as induced by human conduct this is a known correspondence.

Climate Change & Public Health

Climate change is a major, long-lasting change in temperature, rainfall, wind or other type of weather. It is caused by burning fossil fuels such as oil and coal. Burning these fuels increases the levels of gases like carbon dioxide in the Earth's atmosphere. These gases, called greenhouse gases, stay in the atmosphere, where they hold in heat from the Earth's surface, warming the Earth over time.

Climate Change Daily Vid Sept 4 2017:Federica Cappelli FEEM analysis of water security under climate change

Federica Cappelli presents her FEEM WP on the analysis of water security under climate change

Water is a multidimensional issue, involving water availability, access to freshwater, spatial and temporal distribution of resources, competition among its uses, ecosystems conservation, climate-related disasters and risks and several other aspects. The water security approach manages such complexity and proposes a comprehensive view of human security in relation to the water-related issues. Consequently, the solutions developed in order to face this multi-faceted concept should reflect its thorough vision. The aim of the present work is to investigate the relationship between climate change and water security. Exploring such a relationship is truly important in order to help policy-makers in the development of adaptation and mitigation strategies. In the water context, this challenge is further complicated by the possible conflicts arising between climate and water policies. In order to carry out such an analysis, an indicator measuring water security, namely the Water Security Index, is created. In the present work, climate change is considered from four different perspectives but, as revealed by the econometric results, it always has a predominant (negative) effect on water security.

Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM), founded in 1989, is a non profit, policy-oriented, international research center and a think-tank producing high-quality, innovative, interdisciplinary and scientifically sound research on sustainable development. It contributes to the quality of decision-making in public and private spheres through analytical studies, policy advice, scientific dissemination and high-level education.

Climate Change daily vid September 2 2017: #ShowUsYouCare

Parks Canada

You showed us your pass; now show us you care! Climate change is affecting our parks and there's so much we can all do to help protect them. Tell us about a park that you love, and what you intend to do to help protect it.

Canada’s network of protected areas provide a natural solution for climate change by conserving biodiversity, protecting ecosystem services, connecting landscapes, capturing and storing carbon, building knowledge and understanding and inspiring people.

By protecting our lands and oceans, we help fight and mitigate the effects of climate change. Lands and oceans act as carbon sinks, absorbing emissions that would otherwise heat our planet. They provide refuge and migration routes for native animal species. Protected areas tend to be more resilient to climate change. more... Best Sellers Climate Change

Lord Nicholas Stern

Today’s young people can and should hold their parents’ generation to account for their present actions. They can elicit an emotional response that can motivate action. If thinking about the lives of unborn future generations seems too abstract to motivate you to act, try instead looking a young child or grandchild in the eye and asking yourself what sort of future you are leaving for them. There is something that, on reflection, many adults would surely find repugnant in the idea that they will leave their children a damaged planet that will radically affect their life possibilities. Lord Nicholas Stern

Kiribati President Anote Tong

"…I remember I had been trying to convince him to visit Kiribati and he did in 2011. He came to Kiribati and I remember he went to visit one of these communities that was flooded every time there is very high tides and there was this young boy who stepped up to the Secretary General and said Mr. Secretary General, you are a very important man you know, is there something that you can do to ensure I will have a future, that I will have a home. And the Secretary General came back and he said Mr. President I have been listening to you at the General Assembly but I never truly understood what it was you trying to communicate but now I do and I feel and I understand I would do everything that I can”
