Published on

I am developing this presentation on the history of climate change. It is a lot more recent than many people think. As the science develops, we need make changes to preserve our natural world for the next 7 generations.

  • Highlight the similarities between today and 1980. Will be have the same rebound that we always have? Or is this a different time?The Rocky Mountain Institute calculates that if the 40 least-efficient states were to reach the electrical efficiency of the 10 most-efficient ones, national electricity use would be reduced by one third. This would allow the equivalent of 62 percent of the country&apos;s 617 coal-fired power plants to be closed.
  • Now ask yourself that question again. Is this 1980 or 2010?In 2008, oil use dropped 5 percent, coal 1 percent, and carbon emissions by 3 percent. Estimates for 2009, based on U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) data for the first nine months, show oil use down by another 5 percent. Coal is set to fall by 10 percent.Carbon emissions from burning all fossil fuels dropped 9 percent over the two years.
