Breakthrough in International Year of Biodiversity

Governments Give Green Light to New Gold Standard Science Policy Body

IPBES, June 11, 2010

History was made today in the South Korean port city of Busan, when governments gave the green light to an Intergovernmental Science Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES).

The independent platform will in many ways mirror the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) which has assisted in catalyzing world-wide understanding and governmental action on global warming.

The new body will bridge the gulf between the wealth of scientific knowledge- documenting accelerating declines and degradation of the natural world- and the decisive government action required to reverse these damaging trends.

Its various roles will include carrying out high quality peer reviews of the wealth of science on biodiversity and ecosystem services emerging from research institutes across the globe in order to provide 'gold standard' reports to governments.

These reports will not only cover the state, status and trends of biodiversity and ecosystems, but outline transformational policy options and responses to bring about real change in their fortunes.

An IPBES will achieve this in part by prioritizing, making sense of and bringing consistency to the welter of reports and assessments conducted by United Nations bodies; research centres, universities and others as they relate to biodiversity and ecosystem services.

Achim Steiner, UN Under-Secretary General and UN Environment Programme (UNEP) which has coordinated this week's meeting, said: "The dream of many scientists in both developed and developing countries has been made reality. Indeed, IPBES represents a major breakthrough in terms of organizing a global response to the loss of living organisms and forests, freshwaters, coral reefs and other ecosystems that generate multi-trillion dollar services that underpin all life—including economic life—on Earth".

"It is also an important day for multilateralism in this, the UN's International Year of Biodiversity. There remained disagreements between governments as they entered this week's third and final meeting. These centred on financing for the platform up to its scope and role in building scientific assessment capacity in developing economies," he added.

"But nations put aside the smaller differences that divided them in favour of the far bigger areas of consensus that finally united them—namely the urgent need for an IPBES as a key building block towards restoring, repairing and more intelligently managing the planet's nature-based assets," said Mr. Steiner.

"I would applaud all governments for their determination and vision in writing a small-but what might one day prove a significant- new chapter in humanity's relationship with the natural world," he concluded.

Chan-Woo Kim, Director General of the Ministry of Environment, Republic of Korea who chaired the third meeting this week, said: "In the 21st century faced with many environmental challenges, the vision of 'Green Growth' should be shared in the international community. The essence of this vision is to ensure environmental sustainability while pursuing development. For this to be realized, it is crucial to have a credible, legitimate, and policy-relevant understanding on biodiversity and ecosystem services."

"Today, and in this International Year of Biodiversity which we commemorate, we finally reached an agreement to establish an Intergovernmental science-policy Platform for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services. This historic agreement will lay the foundation for us to have full scientific assessment for appropriate policy responses for human well-being on the Planet," said Mr. Kim.

"Busan, one of the most beautiful cities in Korea, will be remembered in the international environmental community for making a huge step forward for the establishment of the IPBES," he concluded.

Mr. Kim added: "Here I would also like to thank UNEP for its role in this important breakthrough after having diligently and professionally steered and facilitated the process towards establishing an IPBES since the first meeting in Malaysia some 18 months ago".

Today's green light, given by delegates from close to 90 countries, is now expected to be sent to the 65th session of the UN General Assembly, which opens in September, for its consideration to be formally established.

It will then be presented for endorsement by environment minister attending the UNEP Governing Council/Global Ministerial at its next session scheduled for Nairobi, Kenya in February 2011.

IPBES—what is it likely to do?

This week's meeting in Busan heard that there are now a myriad of global, regional and national assessments being carried out from time to time that relate to biodiversity and ecosystem services.

These include the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment; the International Assessment of Agricultural Science and Technology for Development; UNEP's Global Environment Outlook; the Global Biodiversity Outlook and the Global Forest Resources Assessment.

Others include the State of the World's Animal Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture; the Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity and the IUCN Red List of threatened and endangered species.

While many, if not all are important, many of the findings are failing to translate into meaningful and decisive action by governments on the ground and in global and national planning.

This is in part due to different methodologies and standards operating across such assessments.

An IPBES can bring greater rigour to such assessments while bringing together their findings in order to provide governments with greater clarity and confidence on the conclusions in order to act.

Other areas include bringing to the attention of governments 'new topics' identified by science, outlining what is known and also aspects where more research is needed.

Some scientists, for example, claim that evidence that deoxygenated dead zones in the world's oceans took too long time to migrate from scientific circles into the domain and in-trays of policy-makers.

A similar argument is made concerning the pros and cons of biofuels. An IPBES could provide better early warning of such new topics to governments before decisions are taken.

While an IPBES will support some capacity building in developing countries, its main role will be to catalyze funding to assist developing country scientists and developing country assessments through, for example, harnessing funding via UN agencies; foundations and other sources.

Unraveling the precise role of animals, plants, insects and even microbes within ecosystems and their functions in terms of the services generated-from water purification to soil fertility-could also be a major thrust.

Some experts are convinced that many scientific discoveries, from the identification of new lower life forms to the fast disappearance of others, can often remain within the corridors of research institutes and universities for many years before they reach the wider world.

By that time is may be too late to act to either conserve or protect the species concerned whereas early warning might have put the species on the political radar giving it a better chance.

En kanadisk biolog slår an tonen:

    Toronto Star, June 11, 2010: The first documented evidence of the baffling disappearance of up to 90 per cent of snake colonies in five disparate spots on the globe has “large-scale implications” for humanity, a Canadian expert says. And the “most obvious cause, intuitively, would be climate change,” biologist Jason Head of the University of Toronto, told the Star. “Snakes are top predators in their eco system,” said Head. “They are regulators on rodents. If we remove that regulator, you can expect an increase in the number of disease vectoring (carrying) animals.” Venomous snakes are taking the biggest hit in the findings, which has serious consequences for medicine, said Head - Why vanishing snake colonies have ‘large-scale implications’ for humanity

Aftenposten melder i dag at den biokonservative klimaastrologen Erik Solheim er mektig begeistret over FNs biopanel:
Aftenposten skrev:– Dette er helt fantastisk, sier miljø- og utviklingsminister Erik Solheim til Aftenposten.

Solheim lufter dystre tanker:
– I verste fall står vi foran en masseutryddelse av arter, slik det skjedde blant annet med dinosaurene for millioner av år siden, som følge av menneskelige inngrep og rovdrift på naturressurser.

Men heldigvis er løsningen enkel:
Han sier Norge vil bidra med penger til oppbygging av kapasitet i utviklingsland knyttet til det nye naturpanelet.

United Nations, July 8, 2010: Acclaimed actor and conservation activist Edward Norton took on his latest role today, as Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon designated him United Nations Goodwill Ambassador for Biodiversity. With the issues of community development and conservation close to his heart, Mr. Norton voiced hope that he can channel the attention he receives for his work in Hollywood towards raising awareness of the UN’s ideals and activities. In his new role, Mr. Norton said he will work with the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) to spotlight the “crisis of biodiversity” and ensure world leaders take appropriate measures to protect the environment. Referring to one of Mr. Norton’s most famous movies, Mr. Ban voiced hope that the Goodwill Ambassador will help to move the world from “Fight Club to a peace club” - UN names actor Edward Norton as celebrity advocate for preserving biodiversity

    ABC News, July 7, 2010: Global warming could have an unexpected effect on the clownfish star of Finding Nemo and his kind, by making them indulge in risky behaviour, say researchers. Professor Geoffrey Jones at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies, said the research took the level of concern about the effects of climate change on coral reef fish "to a whole new level". "Without drastic action to cut emissions, all we can do is hope that fish will be able to adapt," Mr Jones said. "However, given that the rate of CO2 increase is unprecedented, there are no grounds for optimism" - Rising CO2 may lead Nemo to danger

The Post Chronicle, July 15, 2010: While not recanting predictions of disastrous climate change, environmental activists and the United Nations are already launching a new campaign. The real threat to the planet, they now assert, is the impact of modern energy technologies and civilization on biodiversity. The case for saving species, they insist, is even "more powerful" than the need to address climate change. They seek to preserve biodiversity by controlling people's energy use, economic activities and population - through new regulations and taxes under the auspices of the United Nations and global treaties. These efforts, they claim, will generate benefits "worth $4-5 trillion per year" (based on questionable studies and computer models that underscore the intrinsic value of species and biodiversity). To accept these claims, one would have to ignore the sordid history of Climategate and the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change - and believe a larger, more powerful United Nations will somehow ensure honesty, transparency, and accountability for misfeasance, misrepresentation, intimidation, and adverse impacts on people and economic growth. One would also have to ignore a growing body of evidence that the greatest threats to the world's species are misguided environmental and anti-technology policies - Misguided Environmentalists Are Destroying Biodiversity

OfficialWire, July 17, 2010: The replacement of traditional cork stoppers in wine bottles by screw-cap tops is destroying forests and animal habitats, ecologists claim. Cork suppliers and environmentalists say the change is threatening the 5 million acres of cork forests across Portugal, Spain, North Africa and Italy that are sustained through industry management, The Daily Telegraph reported Friday. The area includes the Montada forest, considered a "biodiversity hot spot" where some of the world's most endangered animals live, including the Iberian lynx. "It is not just about cork, it is about a rich community of plants and animals that all rely on one another," Rui Simoes of the Rainforest Alliance said. Environmentalists say they fear that if farmers cannot profit from cork they will replant with non-native trees such as eucalyptus. And cork manufacturers say 100,000 jobs could be lost as a result of the switch to screw caps, The Daily Telegraph reported. Cork producers are pushing their stoppers as a "green" product. "What other 21st Century produce other than cork is good for biodiversity, climate change and the environment, while also maintaining historic traditions?" Carlos de Jesus of the Portuguese Cork Association asked - Screw-caps Seen As Threat To Environment

    Bilde"It is not just about cork..."
    The Portuguese Cork Association: “Plant a cork oak forest for your grandchildren,” the wise country folk say. They know that their future and the future of their descendants are dependent not only on the harvesting of cork, but also on maintaining the amazingly rich environmental biodiversity of the cork forests and even the balance of the climate itself. Besides its capacity to produce oxygen, the cork oak has a unique
    cell structure that enables it to retain carbon dioxide, the principle cause of global warming

    Nature, July 21, 2010: In the Upper East River Valley of Colorado's Rocky Mountains, yellow-bellied marmots (Marmota flaviventis) are thriving thanks to climate change. The rodents' startling population boom — their numbers have tripled in ten years — has now been linked to the increasing size of their bellies, which is probably caused by climate-driven changes in hibernation patterns. The causes of this weight gain are not entirely clear, but the team's data showed that it was not because heavier marmots bred more and passed on their tendency to be large to their offspring. Instead, all marmots got heavier — an effect assumed to be the result of more warm days each year caused by climate change - Marmots fatten up on climate change

    Merco Press, July 23, 2010: Cattle breeders in Paraguay and Chilean are suffering the consequences of a particularly severe austral winter which has killed hundreds of cattle and threatens the lives of tens of thousands more. Paraguay’s president Daniel Rojas said that at least 2.300 head of cattle have died because of extreme low temperatures caused by a polar wave covering most of the continent’s southern cone. Marcos Peede, president of the Austral Breeders and Farmers Organization warned that 100.000 cattle in the south could starve or die of hypothermia because of the persistent extreme cold weather. “We have 100.000 head of cattle, which includes bovines, sheep and horses exposed to vital risk. There are areas that can’t be reached with fodder and we have reports of deaths of animals” - Extreme cold kills hundreds of cattle; thousands at risk in Paraguay and Chile

m.naplesnews.com, July 24, 2010: In January 2010, Southwest Florida experienced one of the longest stretches of cold weather on record. Because air temperatures dropped below freezing, water temperatures similarly dropped below many native fishes’ tolerance levels. On January 11, 2010, the Reserve’s water quality monitoring stations revealed that water temperatures bottomed out at 45 degrees farenheight and stayed below 57 degrees rough January 14. Anecdotal reports of dead fish included snook, tarpon, snappers, catfish, ladyfish, mullet, needlefish and mojarras. Fisheries biologist Pat O’Donnell’s sampling data reflects a dramatic increase in the average number of pinfish counted in samples from February through May in comparison with the previous ten years. He believes this spike is an indirect effect of the cold water temperatures. According to a NOAA publication, pinfish’s minimum water temperature tolerance is approximately 38 degrees F. Snook, tarpon and snappers are typical predators of pinfish, and because so many of these predatory estuarine fish did not survive the cold temperatures, it may have resulted in more a hospitable environment for pinfish. Another trend observed in trawl data following the cold water temperatures was a significant increase in abundance of flatfish such as Gulf flounder, tonguefish and lined sole. Because these species are benthic (spend the majority of their time on the bottom) their ability to bury beneath the sand or mud may have given them the advantage when waters were coldest. Flounders’ temperature tolerance minimum is approximately 47 degrees. This study has shown that unusually low temperatures can result in both negative and positive effects on fish populations in local estuaries - Cold winter stress hurts fish populations

Ocean Acidification Doesn’t Lead To Species Die-Off, Surprising Scientists

NoTricksZone, July 26, 2010

Pia Heinemann reports in Die Welt today, Ocean Acidification Does Not Lead To Species Die-Off, on a new study appearing in the latest edition of Science. The study contradicts the assumption that ocean acidification leads to species die-off, surprising scientists.

Abstract in Science here


Manmade emissions of CO2 are thought to be partly absorbed by the oceans, which in turn would acidify and pose a huge threat to calcareous organisms like corals and plankton. This is the horror story that has been widely circulating in the media for the last couple of years, and with ever-growing alarmism, at a time the dangers of global warming are turning out to be wildly exaggerated.

Italian and Swiss scientists have found answers by looking at 120 million year old sediment deposits. The team directed by Elisabetti Erba of the University of Milan describes new findings in the latest issue of Science.

    It is not unusual for CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere to surge after large volcanic eruptions. This has happened often in the past.
They examined microscopic fossils and nannoplankton from a time period just after large volcanic eruptions 120 million years ago, when the air’s CO2 content rose to about twice today’s level. Their studies contradicted their expectations. Die Welt writes:

    Contrary to what was expected, no large-scale die-offs occurred among the organisms when acidification increased. The species simply adapted: They formed smaller shells and remained small. They endured the changes far better than first thought.
Heinemann writes that the study also delivered yet another surprise:

    Apparently, the oceans acidify with a delay. After the volcanoes erupted and the surface water pH value began to sink, it took 25,000 to 30,000 years longer for the CO2 effect to reach the sea bottom.
These new findings deal a massive blow to those hoping to exploit ocean acidification as the next disaster scenario to replace the discredited catastrophic AGW story. Expect the MSM to bury or spin the story.

Update/Note: Keep in mind that the plankton and coral studied were from 120 million years ago, meaning the species has since survived climate extremes and changes that were off the charts when compared to today’s mild natural changes. They’ve handled much colder and much warmer conditions with widely varying ocean chemistry.

Update 2: The Alfred Wegener Institute in Germany [Read here] is planning years of research on acidification, costing millions of euros, to study a bogus non-problem. They’ve teamed up with neutral Greenpeace, and so you can be sure they’ll come up with “catastrophic” findings and demand more money for reasearch. Whatever it takes to bilk the taxpayer out of money.

LiveScience, July 25, 2010: The astounding array of species that call the tropics home is the result of the near-constant year-round temperatures found in these areas, a new study suggests. The study, which surveyed insect diversity at a variety of latitudes and points in Earth's history, answers a question that has bugged biologists for centuries. It also shows that the exceptional biodiversity of the tropics is not a result of higher temperatures or more sunlight, as once assumed. The findings also suggest, intriguingly, the world is likely far less diverse today than it was tens of millions of years ago, when the entire Earth had consistent year-round temperatures, much like the modern tropics - Tropical Biodiversity Explained by Steady Temperatures

The Asian Age, August 4, 2010: At least six million fish have died in three rivers of Bolivia due to the intense cold wave sweeping through the country in the past few weeks. Authorities in the eastern Bolivian province of Santa Cruz declared an alert following the death of fish in the Grande, Pirai and Ichilo rivers that run through the tropical region. This is an “environmental catastrophe” brought on by the lowest temperatures registered in Santa Cruz in nearly half a century, Gov Ruben Costas told reporters. He said that environmental experts have found that the rivers are highly polluted by dead fish, and he warned locals not to use those waters. The cold wave that gripped the Southern Cone of South America last month caused a severe drop in temperatures in southern and eastern Bolivia, even falling below 0 degrees Celsius. Bolivia’s weather department has forecast that the southern and eastern parts of the country will continue to reel under the cold wave this week - Cold wave kills six million fish in Bolivia

News Press, August 6, 2010: The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has extended the emergency closure of snook harvest and possession in Florida through Sept. 16. Harvest and possession of snook has been prohibited in Florida since Jan. 16 as a response to the extended cold weather in January, during which hundreds of thousands of snook died throughout the state. While the prohibition remains in effect, no person may harvest or possess snook in state or federal waters off Florida. The FWC may reopen the fishery, if warranted, before the order expires or, if necessary, the agency may extend the closure - FWC extends snook harvest ban

This article is simplistic. A healthy breeding population of a mammal group is 20,000. Just because a few individuals of an at-risk population are still in existence, doesn't mean the species has risen from the dead.

De fleste forstår veldig godt at hvis du dekker igjen en innsjø med sand, vil livet som var i den innsjøen dø og forsvinne. Hogger man ned en skog som holder hundrevis av ulike dyr, da dør og forsvinner (mange) av disse dyrene. Planter man opp skogen igjen, kommer ikke (alle) de dyrene som var der tilbake igjen. Noen dyr overlever lett at litt skog forsvinner, men de fleste dyr i verden er ikke særlig store. Det eksisterer ingenting viktigere for menneskeheten en kunnskap. Uten kunnskap ville ikke vi sittet her og diskutert. Hvor har vi fått mye av dagens kunnskap? Jo, i naturen og fra livet der. Hvor har vi fått mesteparten av medisinen fra? Jo, fra naturen. Utrydder vi X, mister vi muligheten til å forske og forstå. Vi mister muligheten til å øke vår kunnskap. Uten kunnskap, ingen innovasjon og utvikling. Uten fremgang er det bare død.
