Let's build an Ecological Civilization

We need to build an Ecological Civilization that will value: Dignity, Justice, People, Planet, Prosperity and Partnership

2015/06/17: A 6 mois de la COP 21, quelle mobilisation face au climat ?

Nous dégradons nos sols qui sont pourtant nécessaires pour nourrir une population en expansion. Nous causons l’érosion de la biodiversité… Tout cela entraine sur la planète de graves déséquilibres géopolitiques et oblige à la recherche de solutions techniques et scientifiques pour tenter de trouver des solutions.

Pékin et Washington concluent un accord «historique» sur le climat

La Chine et les Etats-Unis, les deux premiers émetteurs de gaz à effet de serre, se sont fixés mercredi à Pékin de nouveaux objectifs concernant leurs émissions, pressés par l’urgence d’un accord mondial à la conférence climat fin 2015 à Paris.

La Chine, désormais premier émetteur mondial, a adopté l’objectif d’un pic de ses émissions de gaz à effet de serre «autour de 2030», avec l’intention «d’essayer d’y arriver plus tôt», a annoncé la Maison Blanche.

2014/09/23: Better Growth, Better Climate - The New Climate Economy Report

Countries at all levels of income have the opportunity to build lasting economic growth and reduce the immense risk of climate change.

But the next 15 years are critical for action.

Sir Nicolas Stern, auteur du rapport éponyme chiffrant le prix de l'inaction entre 5 et 20% du PIB mondial (5'500 milliards d'euros !):

"Are we going to look our grand-children in the eyes ?

And tell them that we understood the issues, that we recognised the danger and the opportunities, and still we failed to act ?"

Let's act about it: ‪#‎PriceOnCarbon‬ !

Global Action Plan

2014/09/22: Protestation contre l'inaction face au changement climatique. Du jamais vu !!

La plus grande mobilisation pour le climat de l'histoire.

Hier, cette mobilisation a a réuni des centaines de milliers de personnes à New York et dans plus de 2000 autres endroits du globe. Il ne pouvait pas y avoir de preuve d'amour plus impressionnante pour tout ce que le changement climatique menace - et quelle belle manière de témoigner de l'espoir que nous partageons tous: celui de sauver ce monde et de construire une société basée sur une économie viable resptectueuse de la Nature et de l'Humain.

"Merci de préférer l'espérance à l'indifférence, la mobilisation à la résignation", et il est toujours temps de signer la pétition !

Press briefing on preparations for Climate Summit 2014

More than 120 Heads of State and Government will be attending the one-day Summit hosted by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to generate political will toward a meaningful universal climate agreement in 2015, and advance action on the ground that will reduce emissions and build resilience to the impacts of climate change.

The Summit will mark the first time in five years that world leaders will get together to chart a bold, new course of action on climate change. The Secretary-General has asked leaders to announce significant and substantial initiatives to help move the world toward a path that will limit global warming.

Here’s What Climate Change Will Do To The American Economy In 7 Charts

So just how hard will climate change hit the American economy?

A big step toward answering that question happened Tuesday, with the release of “Risky Business.” Put together by a research team headed up by the likes of former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and billionaire environmental activist Tom Steyer, “Risky Business” is a sweeping analysis of climate change’s economic impacts on the United States, broken down by region and sector. The report came with some dramatic numbers, including hundreds of billions of dollars in possible coastal damage, looming drops of 50 percent or more to crop production, and a quadrupling of extreme heat days by the end of the century.

RISKY BUSINESS: The Economic Risks of Climate Change in the United States

Damages from storms, flooding, and heat waves are already costing local economies billions of dollars—we saw that firsthand in New York City with Hurricane Sandy. With the oceans rising and the climate changing, the Risky Business report details the costs of inaction in ways that are easy to understand in dollars and cents—and impossible to ignore.
— Risky Business Project Co-Chair Michael R. Bloomberg
