“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….
Keen .... interested and don't like being fooled. Since I 'turned on' to climate change in Nov 2017 its instantly become all important to me.
So many aspects to consider, loss of sea ice, Arctic methane in its three forms (geological, frozen hydrate and microbial) insane (and deceptive) weather modification programmes, diatom loss (and algae and plankton) therefore loss of Pacific coral, Antarctic ice shelf set to begin collapsing, the methane time bomb, worldwide glacial melting, methane release from permafrost, global warming, Pacific contamination from Fukushima, Jet Stream disturbance, unstoppable feedback loops and the interconnectedness of natural forces and systems .... probable mass extinction etc etc.
I cannot see how there can be such a thing as 'climate change denial'.
I'm very tuned in to being outdoors, I've seen things few other people have ever seen or realised ie plants, animals, signs of our ancient ancestors; rocks, landscape, topography; the microscope, diatoms and algae. And of course the more I learn the greater my humility at how little I know.
Please realise though 2 or 3C sounds nothing it has triggered along with higher CO2 levels our weather systems to go into a self perpetuating feedback mode from a previous 'steady state' and this planets life-forms to be severely thrust into turmoil. Less ice means greater heat absorption, a black algae contributing, jet stream now slit in two and thrusting warm air and damp into the Arctic, These things are real and HAPPENING. Polar bears, the saddest of sights will soon only exist as memory, can you see as many bees in summer? We are losing Arctic and Antarctic ice, at the North Pole it is stupidly over-heated and now exists only as water, you cannot walk there, ie this is now and is now plain fact.
Food production will be vastly hindered, is already inoticeable, also the to be dreaded and increasing chemtrails hinder crop growth, the aluminium we know for fact promotes plant disease, hinders solar energy production and destroys ozone. Aluminium from chemtrails has destroyed waterborne entomology ie insect life, as well as I'm guessing diatoms and algae (and as not yet discussed coral reef destruction, the bryozoanss have lost their diatom partners) .... bees now battle with dementia from aluminium. One part say the lower part of the food chain cannot be taken away without all collapsing. Witness the much under-reported Pacific sea bird collapse of 2015. SAVVY UP - BE AWARE !!!
