Facilitaors for Climate Change Mitigation  - Renewable Energy Technologies, Advice, Grants & funding.


PSECC has been formed to provide advice, support and guidance on Climate Change, Global Warming, Renewable Energy, Grants and Funding provision for the people of Portsmouth, Portsmouth & Hampshire Council’s, Governments, schools, colleges, Commercial & International clients. 

Do not leave Global Warming to others, we must do more, energy efficiency also Renewable Energy - Solar PV, Biomass, Wind & Water Turbines, Carbon Capture & Storage & Nuclear, do we risk limited action, can we take the risk?? NO

Global Warming - meltdown


As ice caps melt there is a danger that the ocean conveyor system will close down resulting in more Hurricans, Tornadoes over land mass and not just over the sea, sea level rises and the balance of fresh water and sea water alters resulting in a desalination and major climate shift. Storm surges could result and a “Super Storm” results in pulling down much colder air resulting in much of the Worlds land mass being under thick belts of snow & ice, another ice age.

The latest update on the state of the world's climate will be released on Friday in Stockholm, Sweden.

Scientists and government officials from 195 countries have been meeting all week ahead of the publication from the UN-sponsored Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

The report will detail the physical evidence behind global warming.

The final wording of the summary for policymakers has now been approved, according to the IPCC's vice-chair.

Delegates were discussing the final wording late into the night on Thursday.

Stocker says to limit climate change will require substantial and sustained reductions of greenhouse gases. Finishes to applause.

Drafts of this dense, complex document seen by the BBC indicate that scientists are more convinced than ever that the planet is warming and that humans are responsible for the majority of it, especially over the past 50 years.

This message is likely to be backed up by improved observations of changes in polar ice, sea level and temperature.

However, some projections of future temperature rise are likely to be lowered from the previous IPCC report in 2007. This is because of a hiatus, or pause, in warming that has occurred since 1998.

Nonetheless, Prof Jean Pascal van Ypersele, the vice-chairman of the IPCC, emphasised that the panel's statements were robust, and raised the concern that the target of staying below a 2 degrees Celsius rise in global temperatures was becoming increasingly difficult to attain.

"Any reasonable scientist has to be more worried if they have to answer the question of how to stabilise climate to a level of warming that is not considered dangerous by policymakers," he told BBC News.

Politicians took a decision in 2009 at the Copenhagen climate conference to try to limit long-term global average temperature increases to 2C. This, it was said, was the point above which dangerous changes to the planet would occur.

What is the IPCC?

In its own words, the IPCC is there "to provide the world with a clear scientific view on the current state of knowledge in climate change and its potential environmental and socio-economic impacts".

The offspring of two UN bodies, the World Meteorological Organization and the United Nations Environment Programme, it has issued four heavyweight assessment reports to date on the state of the climate.

These are commissioned by the governments of 195 countries, essentially the entire world. These reports are critical in informing the climate policies adopted by these governments.

The IPCC itself is a small organisation, run from Geneva with a full time staff of 12. All the scientists who are involved with it do so on a voluntary basis.

Prof van Ypersele said the world passed a significant milestone on the road to a 2C rise when the concentration in the atmosphere of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide went through the 400 parts per million mark last May.

"That number is a measure of the duvet we have around the Earth. As long as its thickness is increasing, I don't see how we can't be worried that it will become more and more difficult to achieve any stabilisation target," he said.

Taking place in a former brewery, the talks were said to be making slow progress but delegates expressed optimism that the summary document would be published on time on Friday.

There have been long discussions at the meeting about the impact of the pause in temperature rises over the past 15 years, with reports of some governments attempting to play down this hiatus.

One delegate told me the language was being clarified but that "nothing is being hidden under the carpet".

Much of the time has been taken up with making the summary easier to understand.

Another delegate said that there was a great focus on avoiding misinterpretation: "It still won't be a text my mother would read and happily understand," this delegate said. "But it will be more clear than when we came here."


As ice caps melt there is a danger that the ocean conveyor system will close down resulting in more Hurricans, Tornadoes over land mass and not just over the sea, sea level rises and the balance of fresh water and sea water alters resulting in a desalination and major climate shift.

 IPCC report five - 27th September 2013

 Climate scientists will today attempt to shore up flagging public confidence in measures to control greenhouse gases with a crucial assessment of global warming.

The International Panel of Climate Change (IPCC) is expected to warn that it is now 95% certain that global temperatures are rising and that human activity is to blame.

An international consensus of scientists say they're now 95% certain that humans are responsible for climate change. Thomas Moore reports.

It says carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere will rise to double pre-industrial concentrations by the middle of this century, and that will result in a global temperature rise of between 1.5C (34.7F) and 4.5C (40.1F).

The report claims human activity is accelerating climate change

The report is a comprehensive analysis for policymakers, written and reviewed by some 900 scientists who looked at more than 9,000 studies on climate change. 

Dr Richard Allan, a climate scientist at Reading University who contributed to the report, told Sky News that unless there is action to curb carbon emissions, they would cause serious changes to the planet's climate

"It would mean an increase in the frequency of hot extremes," he said.

"In 2003, there were extreme temperatures and a lot of people died in France. We can expect a lot more of these events because of warming.

"We can also expect marked changes in rainfall patterns, with impacts on agriculture."

The report authors insist the planet is at risk of rising sea levels

The IPCC is under pressure from governments to explain why the rise in global surface temperatures has stalled over the last 15 years.

Sceptics argue it is evidence computer models of the climate are wrong.

But scientists counter that the planet warms in fits and starts. They point to evidence that an upwelling of cold water in the Pacific Ocean has absorbed heat from the atmosphere - but that is only temporary.

While scientists are increasingly confident in the evidence, some polls suggest the public is becoming less certain.

According to YouGov, the proportion of people who believe human activity is making the world warmer has fallen from 55% in 2008 to 39% in 2013.

Sceptics argue trends prove there is no evidence of global warming


Over the same period there was a sharp rise in people who believe there has been no global warming - up from 7% to 28%. 

Professor Chris Rapley, climate scientist at University College London, said the evidence is clear. Although the climate has always varied, human activity is accelerating the changes.

"This is unwelcome news so people want to shoot the messenger," he said.

"What people tend to do is look at some little piece of the jigsaw and say 'look this demonstrates that it's not real or it's not happening' and then they feel better because they don't have to worry about it.

"But the whole exercise that the IPCC is going through is to look at the whole picture and see the general patterns that emerge. It's the pattern in the reduction of snow and ice and increasing temperature that says there is something odd going on here."
