Predictions of catastrophic climate change by the end of this century are mostly based on a greenhouse gas emissions scenario fetchingly entitled " Representative Concentration Pathway 8. In RCP8. This scenario, instead of being treated as a very unlikely worst case, has been frequently described by climate researchers and journalists as a baseline for future emissions and temperature projections. Consequently, it is not surprising that the climate change literature is replete with studies stoked with RCP8.

Streaming online pornography produces the same amount of carbon dioxide as Belgium, according to a new report by French think tank The Shift Project. Researchers found that overall online videos emit million tonnes of carbon each year and a third of this comes from streaming videos with pornographic content. The research , which was lead by engineer Maxime Efoui-Hess who specialises in computer modelling, found that the energy consumption of digital technologies is increasing by nine per cent a year. Sixty per cent of world data flows come from online video. The digital sectors needs to be more heavily scrutinised in light of urgent need to reduce global emissions, researchers say. In total, digital technologies emit four per cent of greenhouse gas emissions which is greater than civil aviation. Moves to create higher quality videos is pushing up these emissions which are set to double between now and

I f you find yourself reading that climate change is "an rated horror film", that its consequences are likely to be "catastrophic", and that it will be "so far-reaching in its impact and irreversible in its destructive power that it alters radically human existence", you are probably being exposed to "climate porn". The problem has been identified in a new report from the Institute for Public Policy Research IPPR published today that examines how the media, government and green groups are communicating climate change in the UK. Having looked at more than articles and 90 TV, radio and press ads, news clips and websites over three months, the research concludes that the alarmist language widely used to discuss climate change is likely to be having a counter-productive effect. The report argues that it is tantamount to "climate porn" by offering a terrifying, and perhaps secretly thrilling, spectacle, but ultimately making the issue appear unreal and distancing the public from the problem. If the UK is to take its fair share of responsibility for preventing the problem from getting worse, the public's contribution to it will need to be reduced significantly.
