I quote …
“By failing to adequately limit population growth, reassess the role of an economy rooted in growth, reduce greenhouse gases, incentivise renewable energy, protect habitat, restore ecosystems, curb pollution, halt defaunation, and constrain invasive alien species, humanity is not taking the urgent steps needed to safeguard our imperilled biosphere.”

Its difficult to get into peoples minds how disastrous even a 2C warming has become (and looks set to rise far higher) we cannot see immediately weather systems responding to the increased feedback until it is way far too late, nor fully realise the interconnectedness of ‘this beautiful machine’ we call Earth. Each identifiable system influences the other to a remarkable degree providing yet further increases in feedback and effects, a most potent and dangerous spiral and even now mechanisms and processes are just coming to light.
And what does Scott Pruitt at the EPA do … shut down all thought of such matters !!!
Heres news of Pacific die-back below from two years ago…. note at 01:20 no more birds are being brought in; at 01:40 we are told they are finding birds with no food in their stomachs. Likewise Francis Mangels tells us elsewhere of the collapse here and now of trout rivers, he’s a PhD on Entymology, lifelong Fisheries Professional and a grounded practical man … so he should know! He says insect populations are down to a tenth of what they should be, Caddis fly are gone, wild trout have empty stomachs. I need to know and have difficulty finding current information re diatom and plankton populations in the Pacific. I’m finding great big holes where I should be seeing information. Below, the first report is from the Bird Treatment and Learning Center, Anchorage, Alaska. http://www.birdtlc.org/
I need to find more re Pacific dieback and West Coast USA Fisheries but google cannot seem to provide very much new material. However, heres … http://www.oregonlive.com/environment/index.ssf/2015/07/blob.html … read of fisheries collapse, how sealions cannot provide milk or raise young anymore. And Pruitt and Artch Clown trump whistle-on as if nothings ocurring….
