Summary of Recent News About Climate Change
That A
ppears to be Creating
“A Tipping Point in Climate Change Activism”
A. Recent alarming news in mainstream media outlets about climate change appears to be creating “A tipping point in climate change activism”, which I expect will cause many environmental groups to demand much more climate action.  Given below is a summary of some of this news:
2) Guardian: ‘Soon it will be unrecognisable’: total climate meltdown cannot be stopped, says expert, Robin McKie, Sat 30 Jul 2022 – Blistering heatwaves are just the start. We must accept how bad things are before we can head off global catastrophe, according to a leading UK scientist
3) Guardian: Humanity faces ‘collective suicide’ over climate crisis, warns UN chief by Fiona Harvey, Mon 18 Jul 2022 – António Guterres tells governments ‘half of humanity is in danger zone’, as countries battle extreme heat
4) PBS Video: Scientists measure how quickly crucial Antarctica glacier is melting, Jul 25, 2022  Climate change’s connections with the extreme heat and weather events in the U.S. and around the globe have been well established. But climate change is also having a measurable impact on a much slower-moving development: the loss of glaciers and the melting of the ice. Miles O’Brien brings us this update on a scientist’s quest to chronicle what’s happening with one of the most important glaciers.
5) Antarctica’s ‘Doomsday Glacier’ is hemorrhaging ice faster than in the past 5,500 years By Ben Turner published June 15, 2022 – Ancient bones revealed how fast the melting ice raised the Antarctic shorelines.
7) Rolling Stone: ‘The Fuse Has Been Blown,’ and the Doomsday Glacier Is Coming for Us AllNew data suggests a massive collapse of the ice shelf in as little as five years. “We are dealing with an event that no human has ever witnessed,” says one scientist. “We have no analog for this” By JEFF GOODELL 
B. Some very well prepared recent documentary videos by Deutsche Welle (DW):
1) Deutsche Welle (DW) Documentary (2nd in series): What happens when our water dries up?, Aug 17, 2022
2) Deutsche Welle (DW) Documentary: The fight for water (1st in series) | DW Documentary, Aug 10, 2022  
3) 30 second segment from the DW Documentary about the Fight for Water, Aug 10, 2022 about what happens to a town the runs out of water….
4) Shown here quick summary of expected migration when 3 billion people live outside the band of a livable environment by 2070: Many people will move north, which I think means that hundreds of millions of people will be moving to Canada, whether they are invited or not.  See this segment of the DW Documentary about the Fight for Water, Aug 10, 2022
C. Videos about Typical Human Behaviour Leading to Polarization, which is Preventing Climate Action on a Sufficient Scale:
1) Deutsche Welle (DW) documentary, Why can’t your brain comprehend climate change?.  In this documentary, DW indicated that people often ignore messages that go against their beliefs and listen to messages that support their beliefs.   This tendency is leading to considerable polarization, which is preventing policies from being implemented that will require industries to take climate action on a sufficient scale.
2) MSNBC Video: Burn: See MAGA-Era Science Lies Roasted And Debunked By Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Sep 22, 2022 – Astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson talks to Ari Melber about applying a “cosmic perspective” to many current problems on earth. Tyson also discusses the difference between personal and religious “truths,” and the kind of objective truth that undergirds science and valid policy making.
D. Some recent articles about climate and security:

1) PNAS: Climate Endgame: Exploring catastrophic climate change scenarios, August 1, 2022 (The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS))

2) Doomsday scenario: Climate change news should send a tingle of fear down your spine by Marshall Brain — August 5, 2022 .

RALEIGH – In Climate Change news last week, there were four headlines that should send a tingle of fear down the spine of every human being. Taken together, these four articles represent an approaching tragedy of the highest order for planet Earth and humanity. It is a true doomsday scenario. These four headlines should cause humanity to wake up, take notice, and change course:

E. Some proposed measures for large-scale climate action:

1)  Mobilize for Climate Action in a similar way as Canada did in WWII:  A Good War: Mobilizing Canada for the Climate Emergency by Seth Klein

2) Whole society mobilization for Climate Action by The Climate Mobilization.

3) Recommending large-scale direct action by protestors by Roger Hallam, a co-founder of Extinction Rebellion:

a) Video: How to Stop the Climate Crisis in Six months by Roger Hallam, 4 September 2021
b) Book: Common Sense for the 21st Century: Only Nonviolent Rebellion Can Now Stop Climate Breakdown and Social Collapse, 2019 by Roger Hallam

4) A proposed plan by a leading venture capitalist from Silicon Valley,John Doerr, who wrote a book called Speed & Scale.  This book includes some excellent ideas on accelerating climate action.  He indicates that his plan gets us to net-zero emissions by 2050—and halfway there by 2030.

5) A proposed by Bill Gates, who foundedBreakthrough Energy and wrote the book, How to Avoid a Climate Disaster: The Solutions We Have and the Breakthroughs We Need.

6) Recommended action plan by ClimateSAN: Collaboration between technically oriented environmental groups and/or individuals, governments, financial institutions and industry (including the oil, gas and coal industry sectors) to implement climate action (including Carbon Tech) on a large-scale and at a rapidly increasing rate.  To view ClimateSAN’s proposed plan for Canada, visit:

Note: ClimateSAN’s recommended action plan can and should be complemented by appropriate good ideas from other action plans including “Speed & Scale”, “How to Avoid a Climate Disaster”, “A Good War” and “Climate Mobilization”.
