Jason Hurtado Daniels29,824High Content Circle at 30,000I am sharing the New Year’s edition of my High Content circle as my community tops the 30,000 mark. This is my most carefully curated circle yet, and includes some of the most interesting people who have joined my G+ community over the past two and a half years. This group of artists, business leaders, educators, engineers, futurists, programmers, and scientists represents the kind of collaborative core we'll need to solve the problems of this century.Not everyone could make in. This circle contains proven friends and new acquaintances.  There are representatives of every continent and dozens of professions. Those who know me are aware that I do not ask for conformity, just civility and good will.Thank you for being a part of this community. Welcome to my world, our world. Make yourself at home and... Enjoy!Blessings,JasonTopics#3DPrinters  #Activism  #Agriculture  #Analysis  #Art  #Artist #Bicycle  #Biodiesel  #Biofuel  #Biogas  #Biomass  #Business #BusinessDevelopment  #Change  #Christian #CivilDisobedience  #CivilLiberties  #CleanTechnology #ClimateChange  #Coaching  #Cogeneration  #Collaborate #Collaboration  #Communications  #Consulting  #Cooperative #Creative  #Creativity  #CRM  #Crowdfunding  2014-01-01 20:54:42500191527CC G+

Of risks and dragons
What's really going on here?

The question I'm asking is why this #AAAS  report has gone around the web and received more media coverage than perhaps any other report like it, surpassed only by the #IPCC  reports published by the #UN  itself. It has clearly struck a chord, a wavelength, a nerve.

The stroke of brilliance, as many observers have noted, is the report's focus on risk management. Regardless of what anyone thinks of climate change, no one can or should object to treating it exactly as we all treat normal, daily risks: by insuring against them, which is to say by taking steps to reduce the impact of any likely or potential damage.

"Insurance" in climate terms is the combination of mitigation and adaptation, as well as every social and business measure we can take to avoidca... more »

Look at the bright side

This article laments that only 24% of Americans care greatly about climate change. And of course we would all want that to be far higher at this stage of the game. But as in everything in life, it depends how you look at it.

A quarter of the population -- that's 82 million people in America who care greatly about climate change, and that's a whole freaking army! Indeed, no military army has ever been anywhere near that big.

Now, let's think people networks. THE most powerful way to spread social change is called conductivity, or the way ideas spread from one person to another in close-knit networks at work, church, family gatherings, among friends, in the  neighborhood, and of course, across social networks.

Get where this is going? Now that we have a quarter of the population on board, let's get them activated, and... more »

Follow the money

Great piece in +Triple Pundit on capital markets and clean energy. Thanks for writing and sharing, +Raz Godelnik.

Raz does a great job pointing to the difficulties ahead, though he skipped a big one: 2C is no longer the right target. It's closer to 1.5, and we're already at or very near 1, so reaching and sustaining $1 trillion per year in clean energy investment to avoid 1.5C becomes an even bigger challenge.

Still, the +Ceres report is useful. Vital, even. I do see one major gap, however: insufficient mention of efficiency and rooftop solar, at a time when these investment strategies should rise to the very top of the agenda in any clean energy conversation or conference -- precisely because it has proven so painfully hard to wean utilities away from fossils. How about looking past these dinosaurs.

And yet, there they are, theg... more »

Climate Reality

I must say, Al Gore and his team continue to do a heck of a job lifting awareness in ever more creative ways. Here they are with the Cost of Carbon initiative, which includes this important appeal for all us to throw our names in the ring. I just did, and suggest you do, as well:

How do you spell relief

This Joe Romm piece in +Think Progress is among the most important he has done, because it contains a message we must all heed.

"If we don’t act to reverse carbon emissions quickly, by mid-century every country in the world will be dealing with epic catastrophes simultaneously on a regular basis — drought, sea level rise, heat waves, invasive species, acidification, and super storms. This means rich countries probably will not be offering much assistance to the poorer ones — or willing to intervene in foreign conflicts — since we’ll be suffering at the same time. When the West and Southwest are Dust-Bowlifying, the Southeast is heating up and suffering alternatively from brutal droughts and floods, and the east coast is seeing a Sandy-level storm (or worse) every year.

If you thought the drop in cleantech investment was a bad sign, think again. The total dollar amount may be down, but the number of projects are up! -- the result of the sharp drop in the cost if renewable installations. And when we throw in total climate-related investments, the figure looks even sunnier.

Chinese reality check

Whaaaaaat? But... but I thought...

For all the talk of China's inspiring thrust into renewables, there's this: the story of an astonishing hyperexpansion of coal in the world's chief driver of climate change. Check out this story by Climate Spectator:

http://www.businessspectator.com.au/news/2014/1/8/policy-politics/china-approves-massive-new-coal-capacity?utm_source=exact&utm_medium=email&utm_content=547145&utm_campaign=cs_daily&modapt=

So what to make of this? That balancing growth and climate wisdom is hard. Consumers in emerging markets simply want what developed markets have. They just do. And they're willing to go even to these lengths to get it -- even at the risk of everyone's future.

Needed: honesty, and noise avoidance

Great way to begin the new year, reflecting on what to do with all the climate science gushing out like a glacier from the world's scientists. Our thanks to +Andrew Revkin for posting this fantastic lecture.

It makes you confront one of the most vexing choices we have as believers and hawks: to what extent should we focus on engaging deniers, or indeed whether we should engage them at all.

And THE most vexing choice faced by climate scientists themselves, as well as any good journalist: to what extent they should go from the objectivity of the facts and the science to the natural advocacy that stems from any measure of honesty -- when you realize that the science you see as truth can only be shared as such.

Otherwise, aren't we part of the problem? In this case, a civilization ending problem?

OK, then, so let's make 2014 THE year

This Joe Romm column in +Think Progress (Climate Progress) says it all. Please read it. Every year that passes is called THE year by those of us concerned with the direction the world has taken on the climate front and the brutal urgency of taking far more aggressive action, and now it's 2014's turn. Joe reminds us why it is so critical for EVERYONE to step up and do far more.

As for me, I've decided to do that by joining NAI Puerto Rico and launching GreenCress (more in my G+ profile), in addition to writing the book Green Hope. What about you? How will you step up?

Great choices

They are ALL outstanding 2013 sustainability heroes, but I was particularly ecstatic to read about the LA Times, Popular Science and the other media that chose this year, at long last, to no longer give any press time to climate science deniers.

The fact that the mass media has allowed itself to be so blatantly manipulated by the merchants of doubt for this long has been not just appalling, but more so one of the main reasons we still find ourselves persuading people and CEOs on the issue. And actually, it remains appalling and damaging, since the LA Times and Pop Sci remain in the marginal minority of media that have taken this step.

Michael Bloomberg and Sheldon Whitehouse also deserve mention, two politicians on the right side of history at a time when so many of their peers are still running, or cowarding, away from the climate issue. Their stories... more »

It's also on us

Yeah, Obama's record on climate and the environment is sooooo full of holes. It was clear from the very beginning. My own awakening was Copenhagen 2009, the UN-COP climate conference that year and his first. The administration shocked the world by becoming one of the three biggest progress blockers, the others being China and Australia. Some company to keep. The U.S. shocked the world again by repeating the feat every year since, as strong a sign as there can be of the bipolarity McKibben documents across other fronts in this story.

When it comes to producing fossil fuel in the United States, there is a case to make that to the extent the country must still consume fossil energy, it might as well make it at home instead of buying the same volume from OPEC countries. Hence the record increase in local production McKibben blasts in the story.

Claudia's dilemma

Take a close look at this clip, especially 2:30 mins into it when the Claudia Salerno interview begins. Claudia, as you may know, is the outspoken Venezuelan chief climate negotiator who has rocked previous UN-COP meetings by speaking some truth to power with a bloody hand.

Well, here she is at this year's COP in Warsaw, now an established insider-leader at the talks, speaking the same truths. But doing so while revealing just how vexing the climate issue has become, and why, therefore, it will take far more than the UN-COP 2015 agreement (if it happens!) to solve it.

Take, for instance, her stance on Venezuelan oil production. Here's one of the world's leading voices against the developed world's slow pace and the corporate world's pollution trading schemes, defending oil production! "We're one of the greenest... more »

As if following up on the mind-bending results of the recently announced IPCC report, here's yet another study pointing to the dire climate consequences that await us.

This time, the researchers calculated the sequence of the consequences, with different places getting hit at different times, starting with the tropics and moving up and down.

Finally! An IPCC report that highlights tipping points.

This article from +Business Spectator's Climate Spectator brings up a little noticed bombshell from Friday's IPCC 5th Assessment Report (AR5 for short):

"AR5 future climate projections may convey an impression future temperature rise can be expressed by smooth or gradual trajectories, [which] might allow sufficient time to mitigate further warming." But nothing is further from the truth, says the article's author, adding:

"A continuation of these processes is bound to bring on a synergy of warming and potential irreversible tipping points in the climate system," such as "feedback effects from warming oceans, drying land sectors, release of methane from permafrost and Arctic lakes and release of CO2 from fires."

Primal sustainability

Brilliant! Here's an insight that adds to our stock of knowledge about what creates sustainable behavior, sort of like cracking a primal code. It comes from Western U. graduate student Lauren Turner from this column she published in +GreenBiz.com.

She points, rightly, to five fundamental human traits that act against change but that can and must be countered by smart marketing to convert people to sustainable behavior.

I won't spoil it for you, as I tend to do. So dive in, pick up on the insight and if you're a marketer, put it to good use!!

Breakthrough idea: Big (sustainable) Data

Now THIS is the future we want! Hyperconsumption has emerged as such a threat to human survival, such a primary source of emissions and resource depletion -- considering the runaway consumerism happening now in China and every fast-growing emerging market -- that breakthrough ideas like the one in this +Fast Company article are exactly what we need to make it through.

Bleak, yes, but an opportunity nonetheless

Read this +The Guardian piece, and you can't be faulted for thinking that we're screwed. That if we're that far behind in corporate action on climate and resources, after 20 years of sustainability, then there's no chance they'll move fast enough in the little time we have left as this late hour. That the same thinking applies to governments if and when they move on the growth-altering regulations the article says are now inevitable.

And you know why you can't be faulted for that? Because you would be absolutely spot on. That is exactly the conclusion to be drawn from this, the latest in a long series of papers that confirm the finding.

Certainly amid uncertainty

How to explain the absence of hurricane activity this year? As this story says, it is the subject of intense debate among climate scientists, and it turns out that warming is producing climate changes that clash with each other. The Arctic melt is now apparently affecting hurricane formation in the tropics, along with other things.

Still, though we will see these fluctuations from year to year, as the article concludes, the fundamentals of hurricanes do point to their continued monstrosity and therefore should produce our continued vigilance, mitigation and adaptation.

In the meantime, those of us in the tropics (Puerto Rico in my case) are free to enjoy our fabulous weather at least through this hurricane season!

Couple steps forward, couple back

This is one of the main reasons saving the planet has become such a tough and improbable thing, despite the overwhelming evidence on climate change and resource depletion.

Here's Australia's new leader, for the next six years, pledging to scale back whatever progress the Labor Party achieved in the last six. We keep seeing this struggle and lack of consistent focus in far too many places, including my own country (Puerto Rico).

The problem is that we have precious little time to become consistent and unwavering in reducing emissions and protecting resources. Since there is zero sign that we will, there is no chance that we'll win.

Refreshing Klein

Yes, the title has a double meaning. Adjective and verb. Naomi Klein is refreshing, and in this latest interview, she is refreshing her provocative views on climate and resources.

She has undoubtedly become the soul of the new environmental movement she refers to, the one with any hope of extending the life of the planet, the one I refer to when I talk about green hope.

Her insight and discourse reached a transformational point in this Nov 2011 column in +The Nation http://www.thenation.com/article/164497/capitalism-vs-climate#
and then again in this Mar 2012 +Grist interview, linked here with my commentary: https://plus.google.com/118018939924152190745/posts/8dEru1eTiBw

And now she does it again, in this +Salon interview. Here are some highlights, but do read it; don't settle for these strokes:

Meet Barack McKibben

Organizing for Action doesn't get anywhere near the attention it deserves. It is, as you know, President Obama's grassroots organization, focused on mobilizing people for action across several key issues. Yes, it has an obvious political undertone, which has kept it off the headlines. But the work it does is worthy.

Like on climate, a bigger deal at OFA since Obama's recent climate speech and action plan. It just struck me, looking at this site, that the organization has taken on the flavor of +350.org, created by Bill McKibben. You know, people gathering for demonstrations and activism, taking pictures of themselves and posting them on the site, plus more.

And I wonder. Obama no longer needs OFA to get elected. Yet, there he is feeding the group with action and passion. Yes, he needs it to push his congressional agenda forward,... more »

"Ten times that..."

Here's our friend +Jigar Shah on the exponential potential of solar leases to trigger the installation of far more panels than are installed today. It's a subject he covers in his book, Creating Climate Wealth, which in turn stemmed from the initiative by the same name of the Carbon War Room. If you don't know about either, check them out here: http://www.carbonwarroom.com/
http://www.carbonwarroom.com/content/creatingclimatewealthsingapore

It's one of my favorite projects because of its focus on gigaton solutions that create profitable opportunities for visionary companies that want to get involved, and as such, it is one of those initiatives that create green hope for the world #greenhope .

I hope, Jigar, that the video is part of a series. If so, we're looking forward to the next. (And will you be around forD... more »

Green Rochester

My wife and I dropped off our son Carlos for his freshman year at the University of Rochester last week, and I took the opportunity to do a sort of green audit of the area. Here are some links for your perusal:

http://www.cityofrochester.gov/article.aspx?id=8589936085

http://greentopiafest.com/

http://reconnectrochester.org/blog/

http://www.rochester.edu/sustainability/

As you can see, there's quite a bit going on. I feel particularly gratified about UofR's significant strides, which Carlos has joined as an EcoRep student. He will also lead an important research project on climate behavior.

Rochester is typical of cities that live on the front lines of this war. The picture below is telling. It is the High Falls Historic District. The falls you see are what's left of the falls that once graced the... more »

More on URGENCY. What CAN you do?

+Zachary Shahan is on a roll this morning. (Always is, of course.) Here he brings us, on +Planetsave, the latest from Joe Romm on the most recent IPCC report.

Yes, it cannot be more alarming: additional confirmation of a temperature rise by century's end beyond 5C (8F-9F in the report). Look at the off-the-chart line! Scientists have said for some time that an irreversible spiral kicks in beyond 2C (expected by mid-century), meaning that we'll then be locked into civilization-ending warming. But they've also said the current pace of economic activity and fossil-fuel burning, since it will not be halted ON TIME to avoid 2C, has already sealed our fate. So we're already locked in.

Which brings up a few questions. If our fate is sealed, what's the use of pressing on with sustainability in homes, businesses and... more »

A call to URGENCY, as the search for HOPE is on

So if we overshoot by five months, and we do it EVERY year... In fact, if we overshoot each year by more than the previous year, where are we headed? That's not a trick question. But if you want the full answer, see #greenhope  

Thanks to +Ecopreneurist for publishing and +Zachary Shahan for sharing. Great stuff.

CEOs (and others), step up!

Great piece (below) by +The Guardian's Jo Cofino. Yes, pr folks stifle corporate communication even in those cases where the company does lots of good, and Cofino is spot on in calling them out on that huge fault.

But hey, where is the CSO and more so the CEO in this process? When I've been in charge of pr at a company and the CEO felt particularly strongly about an issue, he/she was right in speaking openly and having me put my laptop away. We need to see far more of that when it comes to a CEO's green position.  And indeed we are in some cases.

Where we don't see that, it's far more a reflection of the company's lack of authenticity than the work of an over-protective pr department. And THAT's the gap to fix. Yes, the pr team can influence and will their bosses in a more authentic direction. But let's be... more »

No more excuses, indeed

If sustainability is STILL one of the great sales and marketing opportunities of our time, after so many years, studies and successful case studies, it is only because of what the linked article below from +The Guardian tells us.

Far too many companies and ad agencies still don't get it, or get it but have not been willing to invest the time and energy to respond to the market opening for green brands. And mind you, as we've said so many times before, that includes lots of products and services, from lifecycle made products of any kind, to such indirectly green goods as bikes and ceiling fans, to the overtly green like energy-efficient appliances, green buildings, and EVs.

This article contains some ways to counter the ignorance, but only some. There are others. If you're a company in the market for ANY of this, do the research and... more »

What Sodexo tells us

Yes, it has a narrative, as the link below attests. But it can tell us far more.

It tells us that a generally below-the-radar company such as this one, which operates food service for client buildings and manages their broader facilities, can have a huge influence on its stakeholders.

And it tells us that cascading that influence is a drawn out affair, particularly for a company of this size and complexity.

Not that Sodexo has gotten there. Yet. Which tells us something more. It tells us that there is a higher bar companies must aim for, a higher standard for them to reach. Falling short of that dooms the planet, which leaves little excuse, and no room at all, for doing any less.

We need to hold them all accountable, for our lives depend on what they do.

Here's more on the new... more »

Get your climate update here

Check out these two recent reports and judge for yourself. Not pretty, but certainly a call to arms, or rather yet another reminder that every action helps. Multiplied by all of us, that amounts to an awful lot of action.

Let's go.

The heart of the city

Actually, that should say "the city of the heart" to better capture the spirit of this outstanding post by +Glenn Vowles in the Sustainable Cities Collective blog. It's a cool compilation of ideas being implemented by cities around the world.

As we know, cities is where the action's at, in this age of no-show national governments. We'll see whether the latter will show in Paris 2015. But we don't have to wait for cities. They've been showing up for some time now.

It's only too bad Glenn chose the phrase conserver cities. Conserver does not offer the inspiration we need, nor the inspiration these cities are creating. So why not call them inspiring cities?
