Climate Change Now
New research indicates global warming is intensifying hurricanes and other storms. Major storms spinning in both the Atlantic and the Pacific since the 1970s were found to have increased in duration and intensity by about 50 percent, largely due to increased ocean temperatures but also atmospheric increases as well.
We can stop speaking of catastrophic climate change caused events in the future tense. Climate Change is happening now. Like no other environmental problem (and there are plenty), climate change threatens to swiftly and irrevocably unravel the global ecological system.
Every day without a coordinated urgent international response limits the possibility of averting climate change apocalypse now. Industrial society has eaten the Earth and we shall all pay – with a bit of sacrifice now, or mayhem and global ecocide later.
