Climate Change Timeline

June 13th, 2008 by tanya · 9 Comments

Recently I ran into an interesting website, www.eoearth.org. On this website there is various information and one page in particular talked about Climate Change (collection). While reading this webpage I ran into another link for a timeline. Well I do love my history so I clicked on it, it actually is quite informative and shows how long climate research has really been going on. Take a look!

    I just read a new article : Climate is right for emissions law where New Zealand’s first major piece of climate change legislation becomes law this week causing businesses and consumers to change their thinking about energy, technology and their economy. “Some businesses, though, genuinely can’t change quickly. They have no technology options or they face too much overseas competition. Rightly, the climate change legislation has mechanisms to help them in the medium term.” With many big challenges still ahead, New Zealand is taking steps to reduce it’s emissions and it’s carbon footprint. This is good news, and a good article.

    Thanks for all the positive comments on my June post, I glad people find it useful. Also, I appreciate the information about New Zealand and their first major piece of climate change legislation. I happy to see the effort, but still question effectiveness. Like most countries, there is plenty of politics to muddle through. This is also stated in the given link, but it sounds like a new and promising system. I will wait and see what happens. I just hope the mud doesn’t get so thick that the effort is stopped altogether.

    I think a large part (so not all) of the recent climate change on Earth has to due with human activity, including the exponential rate of increase that has occurred since the industrial revolution. Yes, Earth has it’s own cycles, but I think humans are accelerating that process at an alarming rate. In reality, most of our problems can be traced to population growth. Things are not balanced in the Earth system equation of input and output. Anyway, I could go on forever. Basically I think the large global human population is tipping the natural balance of Earth. Solutions, well there are many options that can be argued for centuries, hopefully something happens.

    thanks to all the positive feedback I think it’s easy to be happy people. In addition, New Zealand, the first big piece of legislation on climate change, and thank you for the information. I find that efforts to satisfy this effect is still questionable. As with most of the country for a variety of politics is to stay in any way. This can not find a particular link, but it sounds like a system with a new hope. I’m waiting to see what happens when. I tried to stop the mud is not expected to have the interval.

    Kitty 1980, thank you for you comment and information. I am also concerned for the global implications of climate change and hope the new Administration in the US emulates what the EU is doing to mitigate the environmental consequences. Also, I hope the US, in general, looks at what other countries are doing to see what works and what doesn’t work.
