Comparto dos noticias que pueden provocar uno de los mayores despertares de un gigante que se negaba (hasta hoy) aceptar el irrefutable consenso científico mundial, y de pasada confirmar la urgencia de nuestras acciones.

US Dept of Energy office supports Peak Oil theory

by EB / DoE

An office of the US Department of Energy addresses - and supports - Peak Oil research in this unusually frank document entitled

Strategic Significance of America’s Oil Shale Resource. Produced by the DoE's Office of Naval Petroleum and Oil Shale Reserves, it disregards the overly optimistic oil production projections of the DoE's own Energy Information Administration. It references instead the research of Colin Campbell, Jean Laherrère, Kenneth Deffeyes, Matthew Simmons and other so called 'pessimists' in one of the first serious official documents supporting the thesis of an imminent oil peak. (In fact a later version of one figure included in the report was first published here on by Werner Zittel and Jorg Schindler.) The report looks towards the US's shale deposits as a potential source of fuel for the future. -AF

High Court Tells EPA to Consider Global Warming Steps (Update5)

By Greg Stohr

April 2 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. Supreme Court ordered Bush administration environmental officials to reconsider their refusal to regulate greenhouse-gas emissions, giving a boost to advocates of stronger action against global warming.

The justices, voting 5-4, today said the Environmental Protection Agency didn't follow the requirements of the Clean Air Act in 2003 when it opted not to order cuts in carbon emissions from new cars and trucks.

``EPA has offered no reasoned explanation for its refusal to decide whether greenhouse gases cause or contribute to climate change,'' Justice John Paul Stevens wrote for the majority.

Podemos así, estar presenciando el inicio del fin de una política institucionalizada de la ceguera y arrogancia del país más influyente del mundo moderno. Ahora a recordar que nos quedan sólo 20 años para revertir la curva de aumento de emisiones de CO2 antes que toque las 500 ppm, despúes de lo cuál, mejor el último apaga la luz

... es hora de abrir los ojos.

Ya perdimos la oportunidad de ser proactivos, pero todavía podemos reaccionar. Y ahora, tú cómo te imaginas éste mundo en 30 años???
