Andrew Glikson's blog on climate change science and issues

Can Obama’s carbon caps bridge Antarctic’s ice shelf gaps? April 8, 2009
Obama, the EU (and Rudd?) face two issues: first the plethora of extreme weather events around the world, including fatal fires and floods, inherent in accelerating climate change, and second, a massive well-funded disinformation campaign, which has provided governments an excuse to undertake no mitigation measures or over more than 20 years.

While Rome burns, March 25, 2009
There is little evidence the “climate change skeptics” worry too much their misunderstanding of climate science may lead to the death of billions and the likely demise of civilization . The legal status of disinformation campaigns aimed at the promotion of substances of proven fatal global consequences, such as ozone-destroying CFCs, or greenhouse gas levels pushed up to near-40% above their natural level, is unclear. The lack of suitable laws to prevent ecocide may yet prove to be the Achilles heel of global civilization.

Antarctic blues and the Australian drought, February 16, 2009
Until recently, whenever climate research organizations reported increases in Arctic Sea ice melt rates , advocates of global “cooling” have been making references to the Antarctic continent as supposed counter argument. Referring to small stable or slightly cooling parts of east Anarctica, a plethora of bogus climate websites claim Antarctic warming is not a part of global warming. Presumably regarding Antarctica as part of another planet?

Planet eaters: Chain reactions, black holes and climate change, January 21, 2009
Planetcide challenges every faith, ideal and social system humans ever held. Individuals are crushed, as in H. G. Wells’ War of the Worlds, when cells rebelling against the insanity of a murderous global Martian society are destroyed by the parent organism.

The Faustian Bargain, January 12, 2009
The sensitivity of the Earth’s atmosphere to anthropogenic carbon gases has been underestimated. As the orgy of burning carbon products of 400 million of biological evolution continues unabated, pushed by business, advertisers and consumption-promoting governments, global warming proceeds at a pace faster than projected by the IPCC, tracking toward likely climate tipping points.
