"We have a full-scale planetary emergency."

To assimilate, document and present scientific data relating to climate change; including deforestation, disease, drought and global hunger.


To serve as an access-point for information to assist media and concerned parties to engage these topics and to encourage governments, public bodies and other institutions to introduce beneficial legislation and policies resulting in the subsequent mitigation of climate change and minimization of associated human, planetary and economic costs; also safeguarding water supplies, preserving forests, minimizing environmental degradation, improving health and alleviating global food shortages.

RADICAL NATURAL CLIMATE SOLUTIONS

In the lead up to COP18, climate scientists are desperate for solutions, but few countries are willing to take bold action. The world is on track for 6° warming: we have reached a point where radical and affordable solutions to fix our climate are urgently needed. The solutions described here are low cost, natural and solve both short and long term global warming.

THE DOUBLE EDGED SWORD: A QUICK-FIX FOR GLOBAL WARMING

The closer we look at livestock production, the more we discover that it is truly a double-edged sword.  On one hand we have the damaging health, climate and environmental effects, and on the other hand, we are now finding that the short-lived emissions from livestock may give us a quick fix for global warming – [...]

Prevent & Reverse Heart Disease - Dr. Caldwell B Esselstyn Jr.

Dr. Esselstyn talks about his research findings and success on the reversal of heart disease, recognising the health benefits of a plant-based diet.

Internationally known surgeon, researcher and clinician, Dr. Esselstyn currently directs the cardiovascular prevention and reversal program at the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute.

Of note, former US President Clinton recently spoke of how he was able to lose twenty-four pounds and improve his heart function by following a plant-based diet as recommended by Dr. Esselstyn in his groundbreaking book "Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease."

Dr. Joel Fuhrman, leading nutrition expert and best selling author presents this latest landmark research into curing and preventing many chronic diseases through nutritional excellence using a plant based diet.


Cooling The Planet - Fast Acting Solutions

Our climate is changing. The summer floods of 2010 in Pakistan and fires across Russia already demonstrate society's vulnerability to the current global temperature rise of only 0.8°C.

The latest science tells us that even by meeting our most ambitious emissions reduction targets by 2020, greenhouse gas emissions will be 30% higher than that needed to keep within a 2°C temperature rise.

We now know that reducing CO2 alone will not affect cooling fast enough.

Even with a zero carbon global economy tomorrow, the existing CO2 in the atmosphere will continue to heat the planet for hundreds of years to come, meaning CO2 reductions on their own won't prevent runaway climate change.

We need to cool the planet fast, and here's why.
