Wadham climate change discussion

Today’s Wadham Research Forum on climate change was very interesting, despite how all the ideas expressed were fairly familiar. The extent to which the points highlighted are the same as those in my thesis is both encouraging and dispiriting. It suggests that I have not missed the mark completely, but also that I may not have contributed anything terrible novel. Of course, there is a good chance that the key issues to be considered are obvious enough, and that it is the approaches taken that generate the value of a particular assessment.

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.

  1. New idea to slow climate change, courtesy of my boss…
    Best way to counter global warming? Induce some strategically placed nuclear winters!!

    What would happen if you presented that idea in your thesis?


    Hope you’re well!

  2. There is a cure for global warming, pump the water melting off of the ice caps and glaciers to the deserts. The pure glacial water would make the deserts bloom continuously without the saline contamination common to river or ground water. With millions of square miles of desert removing atmospheric carbon it would be possible to reverse global warming in a few decades. I base this theory on the NOAA graph that shows a 5-7 ppm decline in CO2 during every northern hemisphere summer. I believe that this is caused by plant growth on the larger landmass north of the equator, with the deserts in bloom throughout the year I believe that this drop would be permanent.

  3. Did you know that USA and Europe blocked Wikileaks? What do you think about it?
    Hih you hear me??
