Måske bliver man ikke sindsyg direkte, men Global fortæller at Marijuana øger den globale opvarmning

A new study by Evan Mills of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory finds that indoor Cannabis production has a very large carbon footprint.

Reporter Colin Sullivan summarizes the study, titled “Energy Up in Smoke,” in yesterday’s E&E News (subscription required):

AGRICULTURE: Pot growers inhale 1% of U.S. electricity, exhale GHGs of 3M cars — study (04/11/2011)

Colin Sullivan, E&E reporter
Indoor marijuana cultivation consumes enough electricity to power 2 million average-sized U.S. homes, which corresponds to about 1 percent of national power consumption, according to a study by a staff scientist at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

Researcher Evan Mills’ study notes that cannabis production has largely shifted indoors, especially in California, where medical marijuana growers use high-intensity lights usually reserved for operating rooms that are 500 times more powerful that a standard reading lamp.

Og global opvarmning fører til sindlidelser fortæller CFACT

When it comes to global warming, melting ice caps and scorching heat waves often top the list of big worries. But now, just the act of worrying itself is allegedly becoming a new consequence of dreaded climate change. One new form of anguish is for survivors of extreme weather events – which kind of makes sense – but there’s apparently a special mental burden being carried by climate activists who one psychiatrist says are suffering from anticipatory anxiety and pre-traumatic stress disorder. Supposedly adding to the problem is that politicians aren’t doing enough to address their climate concerns, causing them to feel vulnerable and probably just not well understood.

Det betyder ifølge Discover Magazine at børn ikke kan sove for vrangforestillinger

Not long ago my wife and I went out to dinner at a restaurant with another couple, who, like us, have two boys. The conversation inevitably turned to our kids, school, family stuff. Their older son made the transition this year to junior high school. I asked how this was going. Pretty well, the mother said, except he had recently become anxious and wasn’t sleeping well. “He’s worried about climate change,” she said. “It’s keeping him up at night.”

Shortly after that outing, my wife and I had dinner with another couple. Again, the conversation revolved around our kids. (They have a 13-year old son and an 11-year old daughter). Their teenage boy, I learned, was also having anxiety and sleep issues. “He’s become obsessed with climate change,” the father told me. “He thinks the world is doomed.”

At politkere og embedsmænd begynder at konfabulere, som Responding To Climate Change fortæller

A UN climate meeting in Bonn’s bright World Conference Centre this week saw the usual tussle between the climate negotiators who are trying, each in their own way, to secure a deal designed to put a stop to climate change.

Tactics of diplomacy were varied, as negotiators both coaxed and conflicted with other countries as they tried to win the rest of the world around to their own way of thinking. But Yeb Sano, the lead negotiator from the Philippines, is the only one makes his point through fasting.

It is an unusual approach, but Sano believes it is effective, making him a better operator when it comes to  driving forward progress on the UN’s  climate treaty, which needs all the help it can get if it is going to be signed off by a 2015 deadline.

“When we look at this convoluted process called the climate negotiations, which has been running for more than two decades now, a lot of things we discuss here are things that will really test your patience,” he tells RTCC.

“Fasting allows you to understand where others come from and lead you to solutions that would go beyond the confines of what is written, what is conventional.

“That goes with the notion of dealing with climate change not by sticking with the traditional positions countries take, but finding common ground that addresses the problem in a way that respects not legal context, but the human moral context.”


Fasting each month is now a ritual for Sano, who goes without food for two days. On the first of each month, he fasts as part of a wider movement among environmental activists—united on Twitter with the hashtag #FastForTheClimate.

On the thirteenth, he undertakes a personal fast to remind himself of the catastrophic super-typhoon that hit the Philippines in November last year.

Og akademikere kvæles i egen galde i tidsskrifter som The Conversation

More deaths can already be attributed to climate change than the L’Aquila earthquake and we can be certain that deaths from climate change will continue to rise with global warming. Nonetheless, climate denial remains a serious deterrent against meaningful political action in the very countries most responsible for the crisis.

Climate denial funding

We have good reason to consider the funding of climate denial to be criminally and morally negligent. The charge of criminal and moral negligence ought to extend to all activities of the climate deniers who receive funding as part of a sustained campaign to undermine the public’s understanding of scientific consensus.

Criminal negligence is normally understood to result from failures to avoid reasonably foreseeable harms, or the threat of harms to public safety, consequent of certain activities. Those funding climate denial campaigns can reasonably predict the public’s diminished ability to respond to climate change as a result of their behaviour. Indeed, public uncertainty regarding climate science, and the resulting failure to respond to climate change, is the intentional aim of politically and financially motivated denialists.

Så læg piben til side, verden er skør nok endda.

  3. Jeg elsker det mudderskred, der er sket i sprogbrugen hos de frelste. Hvor man før - hvis man stillede spørgsmål til den gængse ortodiksi - blev benævnt “climate change sceptic” eller ligefrem “global warming denier” er det efterhånden kogt ned til “climate denier”

    Så hvis man påpeger at der er et empirisk modsætning til “modellerne” og den virkelige verden, så nægter man altså at anerkende, at der overhovedet findes et klima?!?
    “Forsager du klimaet og alt dets væsen?” Ja, det bliver jeg åbenbart nødt til, thi der findes intet klima, kun vejr!

    A warrant is a court document that says that law enforcement

  10. When blowing fans inside the computer, take special care
    as excessive pressure can cause over spinning and may damage bearings or
    crack a blade. This Herbal Viagra brand is different from
    most types of sexual enhancement pills because it isn’t required to be
    taken everyday. this type of bidet also attaches to your existing toilet but as the
    name implies, is plugged in to an electrical outlet.
