Paige DeWitt-Holub 2/29 Sustainability Notes 6 Impactful experience of proportional homo sapien populations in the Natural World -Professor-to-be Marzetta – dendrochronology – climate, history of the climate, reservoirs of water (humanly constructed water source) -Denver needs enough water to get to the large populations -early 21 century, water famine for flora culture and swimming pools, etc. – worst since the Dust Bowl, changed the way scientists and common people looked at water -she used to try to figure out when the next Denver drought is going to be -the professor’s job now is to advocate for Climate Change, research about the best methods of education to gather the public and shift the public opinion to change the environment in the community, different methods of conveying information about this issue -Greenhouse Effect – like a greenhouse but it is getting too hot and insulated -less snowy climate, warmer early and late winter weather, dry pine, more- warmer season rain, how the weather patterns are alternate than what they used to be (Oscars discussion), glaciers are decreasing in size steadily, -ozone hole -however, compared to China, U.S.’s Clean Air Act, primary banishment of CFCs (debatable), and scrubbers in the pollution vents -ex. 2008 Olympics shut down transportation system for several weeks prior to attempt to eradicate pollution for the athletes -countries trying to make-up in pace for global industrialization could arguably make everything worse for the world’s clean environments, could exacerbate the ozone hole ->>>>>>> percentages of the world are increasing in a global warming, even though the weather fluctuates unusually, crops in Colorado suffered and failed (“flood plains”)- a percentage that is unusual and detrimental to reliable staple foods, early springs were arguably the cause of this disaster -extinction of species that cannot survive to adapt this, etc. -Climate discussions, “Montreal Protocol” -climate change and reproduction rights are tied together in a conundrum Paige DeWitt-Holub 03/02 Carbon Rush: Lecture on Carbon Prints or note-taking with Carbon Rush by Daryl Hannah -review this movie: -What impacts are to be had in an international carbon market?” company x has a set amount -> “carbon off-set projects” -continue to make profit while only marginally helping earth Kyoto Protocol – carbon tradthg world bank launched its first -> likely expire -Grangmond – Scotland’s 6 biggest pollutant -> carbon being released (Mercury, Benzene, Sulfates) -oil industry -> indigenous nations suffer from industrial pollution -“buying credits” across the world to counteract the impacts of their environment -“eucalyptus monoculture” -> destroyed -indigenous way of life -eucalyptus registered as a valuable, yet carbon source since 2006 ->cut, put in ovens by locals, charcoal sent as Pig Iron, maybe steel shell, -> should be treated like a plant instead of cut and burned -all output reducing emissions make future emissions worse -wells, fruits/etc. – subsistence farming gone -eucalyptus takes from water -> orange groves are dead, replaced with coffee -manioc keeps people alive -companies have strong herbicide, leaving no autonomy for indigenous -making RPF’s by burning instead of waste picking in India, which is 9x more sustainable -less money goes to the poor -“war on waste” -2,000-3,000 jobs lost in one coop alone -“windmill” -> sold land to another farmer -2 other witnesses, no signatures -“windmills were built in our Nager district” no translation, free contracts -use of land without compensation to past owners -false chargers, false imprisonment -Tata had traded carbon credits with a foreign country - outrage
