The failure of our generation is not that we don’t know how to tackle climate change, but rather that we have failed to acknowledge its reality for too long. Every day of delay makes it more difficult to catch up, which is a missed opportunity for creating new businesses and changing lives. Decision and policy […]
When I started writing The GreenPlan, I was employed by Dublin Fire Brigade as a full-time Fireman in 2008. I spent a lot of time explaining the many benefits of Dublin Fire Brigade (DFB) and Dublin City Council (DCC) manipulating the economic downturn to our moral and financial reward. We could use actual actions that […]
The challenge of addressing climate change is primarily rooted in the public’s perception of the issue. Many people find it difficult to understand the data and separate global warming from climate change. The lack of leadership on this issue only adds to the confusion. When discussing climate change, it is important to understand that it […]
n this post, we will discuss the role of ocean heat and storms, ozone at ground level and high in the sky, particulate matter, and their impact on climate change. OCEAN HEAT AND STORMS The oceans act as giant water storage tanks for water of different temperatures. Carbon and other gases trapped in the atmosphere […]
In the previous post, we discussed the impact of radiation, aerosols, and gases on the Earth’s climate. Now, we will delve deeper into feedbacks, rising sea levels, and melting ice. WHAT IS FEEDBACK? Adding additional greenhouse gases to the atmosphere causes changes and responses in the climate system. A response known as feedback can either […]
Climate change is a significant threat that demands immediate action to prevent further overheating of the Earth. Climate models predict that as more greenhouse gases enter the atmosphere, the Earth’s surface temperature will continue to rise. Scientists have used historic temperature records to demonstrate that the average global temperature has increased over the last 150 […]
The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) held in Rio de Janeiro in 1992, aimed to stabilize greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate. Anthropogenic refers to the impact of human beings on nature, particularly on the Earth’s climate system. However, despite […]
