漫谈“气候时代”——兼聊“生造科学词组”与“搜索引擎查新”

   近些年,我喜欢对水文、气候的一些词语进行重新咀嚼与组合,不惮于制造一些闻所未闻的概念。

   昨天(2014.101),我炮制了“由样本推断样本”,百度、谷歌都无踪影。今天我又想到了“统计时代”,百度似乎宣告空手而归,不过,谷歌连续抛出多个“统计时代”网页。

   我再抛出“气候时代”,百度、谷歌双双交了白卷,此种游戏煞是有趣。

   不过,用GOOGLE英文搜索“climate times”,找到两个网页消息,一个是http://climatetimes.com/网站,另一个是twitter对于climatetimes的介绍。

   对我来说,组词仅仅是“游戏其表“,”求真其内”才是我的目的所在。

   我认为,当代年代,堪称为“气候时代”,因为气候被提拔到亿人瞩目的惊世高度。

   至于“气候时代”有哪些具体表征,我尚没有多想。此帖权当抛出问题吧。

   

附:顺便介绍一下climatetimes网站的有关内容吧,这个网站看上去内容丰富、及时。已经可以看到前天新增的文章了。

                       Climate Times: a new beginning, our first step

                                  What is Climate Times?

 We are dedicated to publishing relevant and factual information about the climate crisis and all environmental matters, the good and the bad, affecting our planet.

 Our goal is simple: to become a go-to stop on the web for thought provoking reports about environmental issues, sustainable living and new technologies that may reverse what is seemingly our troubling march toward ecological disaster.

 That being said, we want to highlight the other side of the story: the wondrous beauty of our home, Earth, in all its grandeur – geography, flora, fauna, you and me. Not everything is negative, nor do we wish to always ponder such a fate.

 And perhaps, an occasional exploration of the positive forces around us, we will see the truth.

 Our editorial philosophy: we shy away from content that blurs the lines of fact and fiction, truth and sensationalism, conviction and ideology.

 We strive to uphold the standards and ethics of objective journalism, and while we are not adverse to subjective, opinion-oriented content, we must assure   it is based on fact. There is nothing wrong with advocacy, so long as it is elucidated through well-formed thought and style.

 To that end, we will publish a wide spectrum of informed content – scientific, opinion, academic, journalistic works, fiction, poetry and more – to reflect the state of the planet today and show what the future may portend.

LONDON, 30 December - Global carbon dioxide emissions are likely to hit 36 billion tonnes in 2013, according to new research from the University of East Anglia in the UK. This is a small rise – an estimated 2.1% - on 2012, but it will be 61% above the levels in 1990, which is the baseline year for the Kyoto Protocol.

MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota, December 27, 2013 (ENS) – Researchers are developing a new kind of geothermal power plant that will lock away unwanted carbon dioxide, CO2, underground – and use the greenhouse gas in liquid form as a tool to boost electric power generation 10-fold in geothermal power plants.

LONDON, 28 December - Droughts by the end of this century somewhere in the world will be 20% more frequent. But the catch is that nobody right now can predict with any certainty which places will feel the effects soonest, or more frequently.

LONDON, 27 December - Don’t put any bets on it - but at long last the world-wide trade in carbon looks set to improve, if only just a little.

LONDON, 25 December - And now for the good news: climate change could actually make life better for some creatures. The ibex in the Swiss Alps may find an extra spring in its step. The roly-poly pika of the American northwest might find it has gained an edge over its predators because it is adapted to a high fibre diet.

Conveying abstract or hard-to-visualize ideas is always a challenge. That’s a core reason the best communicators have always used metaphors.

LONDON, 21 December - Having trouble explaining the impact of greenhouse gases on the atmosphere? Puzzled by talk of the acidification of the seas? Interested to learn the effect global warming will have on food supplies?

The Green Paper on the Emission Reduction Fund, the cornerstone of the Government’s Direct Action Plan, takes some small steps forward but fails to tackle fundamental challenges to achieving credible emission targets, The Climate Institute said today.

LONDON, 18 December - The shrinking Arctic sea ice - a loss of 8% per decade during the last 30 years - isn’t just bad news for polar bears. It could be bad news for citizens of Europe and the United States who like to think they live in a temperate zone.

The globally-averaged temperature over land and ocean surfaces for November 2013 was the highest for November since record keeping began in 1880.

The film "Planting for Change" tells the story of how farmers in Guangxi and Yunnan provinces have responded to climatic adversity by using their own innovations and biocultural heritage – and by improving this heritage by working with scientists on participatory plant breeding projects.

Water scarcity impacts people’s lives in many countries already today.
