Last Friday, in a letter to the leaders of the upcoming international climate talks in Paris, six of Europe's biggest oil and gas companies formally requested an international price on carbon, while acknowledging that such a measure would be "transformative across the energy sector." Which seems weird. But fossil fuel companies requesting a tax on their own products makes more sense than might first appear.

Water Spouts Blog: Algae Technology Cleans Up Fracking
Hydraulic fracturing is a process used in nine out of 10 natural gas wells in the United States, where millions of gallons of water, sand and chemicals are pumped underground to break apart the rock and release the gas. Scientists are worried that the chemicals used in fracturing may pose a threat either underground or when waste fluids are handled and sometimes spilled on the surface.
How Does Hydraulic Fracturing ("Fracking") Work?

This explains why climate politics is so unfair. Basically, the GOP says if it doesn't affect us, we don't give a shit. And if changing it means less money for us, we're gonna make everybody say that it's either fake or harmless. Some in the GOP that deny climate change are morons, plain & simple. There's more air in their heads than in their lungs. They're fucking idiots. But the majority of the GOP are greedy, brown-nosing, opportunistic puppets & sheep. They will say whatever they're paid to.

Changes required in order to meet the global target of no more than no more than a 2°C rise in average global temperature remain daunting. This chart shows how aggressively global emissions would need to fall — even in the context of China, India, and other developing countries trying to industrialize — in order to reach this goal.

Study charts 2000 years of climate change. A comprehensive new analysis of temperature changes over the continents through 2,000 years has found that a long slide in temperatures in most regions preceded the unusual global warming of recent decades, but with a lot of regional variability and other fascinating details. A National Science Foundation news release has ample background.
