Charter of Climate Change Rights and Responsibility:

CACOR is pleased to post our Charter of Climate Change Rights and Responsibility that we would like to see enacted into legislation in all jurisdictions. Please help by urging municipal counsellors and MPs and MLAs to support this initiative. We believe the Charter is self-explanatory but the ideas embedded within the Charter are drawn from insights CACOR drew from the Pathways Project (see postings on the website as well).

Similarly, we have launched the call for the adoption of this Charter with a set of 7 initial companion recommendations also drawn from Pathways insights except for the biological ones. Please note we intend to advocate for further recommendations as seem useful. Your ideas for future recommendations are welcome. But for now, there is much to do to ask your friends and organizations and networks you know to post this Charter everywhere so more Canadians become familiar with it. If adopted, it would provide a framework to prevent future governments from inaction. Please consider both documents carefully.

We would like to bring to your attention the legacy YouTube video on the Club of Rome Origin

Innovation in solar cell technology produces a thousand times more power

The photovoltaic effect of ferroelectric crystals can be increased by a factor of 1,000 if three different materials are arranged periodically in a lattice. This has been revealed in a study by researchers at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU). They achieved this by creating crystalline layers of barium titanate, strontium titanate and calcium titanate which they alternately placed on top …

Nine ‘tipping points’ that could be triggered by climate change

Nine ‘tipping points’ that could be triggered by climate change - credit: Carbon Brief
The persistent march of a warming climate is seen across a multitude of continuous, incremental changes. CO2 levels in the atmosphere. Ocean heat content. Global sea-level rise. Each creeps up year after year, fuelled by human-caused greenhouse gas emissions. And while climate records are being routinely broken, the cumulative impact of these changes could also cause fundamental parts of the Earth system to …
