RT @YearOnEarth@twitter.com: The warm ocean can hold less dissolved gas than the cooler ocean. The sea's ability to draw down CO2 diminishes.
The oxygen levels drop. Anoxia sets in and huge swathes of the ocean become uninhabitable.
The seas are suffocating.

RT @YearOnEarth@twitter.com: CO2 is released into the atmosphere faster than the system can compensate for. The atmosphere warms, warming the ocean. The ocean loses capacity to hold CO2 as it warms, causing a dramatic feedback loop.
Surface temps rise dramatically

RT @andrew_leach@twitter.com: Actually, no. Economists have said the pricing carbon is most cost-effective (i.e. offers lowest cost GHG emissions reductions). Effectiveness depends on stringency of chosen policy, not the policy tool. There is no necessary preference for pricing vs regulations on that scale. twitter.com/samori8/status/107

Is there anything analogous to the Sustainable Development Goals more appropriate to developed economies - i.e., a well-curated list of areas for improvement in quality of life, opportunity, well-being, sustainability?

RT @mpesce@twitter.com: โ€œOne of the reasons Doug is poorly understoodโ€ says Alan Kay, โ€œis because heโ€™s a systems thinker. Itโ€™s thinking feedback loops and uses way ahead of everyone else.โ€
