We Stopped At Two Nuclear Bombs; We Can Stop At Two Degrees.

Lasrick writes Dawn Stover writes in the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists that climate change is irreversible but not unstoppable. She describes the changes that are happening already and also those likely to happen, and compares what is coming to the climate of the Pliocene: 'Even if countries reduce emissions enough to keep temperatures from rising much above the internationally agreed-upon "danger" threshold of 2 degrees Celsius (which seems increasingly unlikely), we can still look forward to conditions similar to those of the mid-Pliocene epoch of 3 million years ago. At that time, the continents were in much the same positions that they are today, carbon dioxide levels ranged between 350 and 400 ppm, the global average temperature was 2 to 3 degrees Celsius higher than it is today (but up to 20 degrees higher than today at the northernmost latitudes), the global sea level was about 25 meters higher, and most of today's North American forests were grasslands and savanna.' Stover agrees with two scientists published in Nature Geoscience that 'Future warming is therefore driven by socio-economic inertia," and points the way toward changing a Pliocene future.

Howto Configure PFSense Site-to-Site IPSec VPN Tunnel For Remote Access

nixCraft - Sat, 02/28/2015 - 04:39
I work from a small office/home office and I need to set up an IPSec site-to-site VPN between a Cisco/OpeNBSD IPSec-enabled gateway and firewall running PFSense. How do I configure the VPN tunnel so that I can access remote subnet and servers behiend a Cisco firewall/router securely? How do I setup a tunnel mode configuration which will provide you with an encrypted site-to-site network, allowing networks at multiple remote locations to be able to securely communicate using my PFSense located in my SOHO?

BlackPhone, In Wake of Gemalto Fallout, Receives $50 Million In Funding

Slashdot.org - Sat, 02/28/2015 - 02:48
An anonymous reader writes The BlackPhone, a $600-plus encrypted Android handset designed to keep the prying eyes of criminals and the government out of mobile communications, is now fully owned by Silent Circle thanks to the company raking in investment cash. Terms of the buyout deal with Spanish smartphone maker Geeksphone, the phone's hardware manufacturer, were not disclosed. Silent Circle said Thursday that it has raised $50 million and plans on showing off an encrypted 'enterprise privacy ecosystem' at World Mobile Congress next week. A BlackPhone tablet is on the way, too.
