Climate Change Leadership – Power, Politics and Culture

James Hansen’s Blog and Climate Science Updates

Hey Class!

As we are reading Storms of my Grandchildren it is also relevant to check out the updates to the climate science on James Hansen's website and blog, where you can also find loads of other presentations, videos, and information that he has contributed to. Excellent source of information!

Cheers, CCs

Climate Change Criticism

What does it mean to write about climate change? Special issue of Diacritics on writing and thinking on climate change from the perspective of literary criticism.

We might go to an extreme and suggest that whether or not we explicitly take up climate change in our writing (critical, creative, institutional-bureaucratic, or otherwise), climate change takes us up. Writing in the time of climate change—even critical writing engaged with texts from before the widespread extraction of fossil fuels—is necessarily untimely, out of joint with familiar modes of thinking and being, no matter how heterogeneous these may be. As universal subjects under the globalized umbrella of heat-trapping greenhouse gas emissions, we have come to the threshold of a radical geo-epistemological break, but one that we may have to suppress in order to go on writing. As Ian Baucom has written in an essay as subtle as it is devastating, we are forced to search for a new method that might—remotely—respect the chaotic multidimensionality of being-as-geology, of a radically changed earth. Pinkus, Karen, 2013, Diacritics, Volume 41, Number 3, 2013. p.3-4.

Climate Change 2014: Mitigation of Climate Change – IPCC Working Group III Contribution to AR5

RealClimate.org has got a nice write-up on the recently published report from IPCC on the mitigation of climate change. There are some interesting numbers and projections to have a look at:

For the first time, a detailed analysis was performed of how the 2-degree limit can be kept, based on over 1200 future projections (scenarios) by a variety of different energy-economy computer models. The analysis is not just about the 2-degree guardrail in the strict sense but evaluates the entire space between 1.5 degrees Celsius, a limit demanded by small island states, and a 4-degree world. The scenarios show a variety of pathways, characterized by different costs, risks and co-benefits. The result is a table with about 60 entries that translates the requirements for limiting global warming to below 2-degrees into concrete numbers for cumulative emissions and emission reductions required by 2050 and 2100. This is accompanied by a detailed table showing the costs for these future pathways.
