Climate Change Killing Now
Climate change is a reality, it is happening now, and it is widely killing plants, animals and people. A new book indicates the magnitude of the threat posed to biodiversity by climate change. And the World Bank reports huge numbers of deaths and ill health in poor nations are the result of climate change and pollution. A small blurb below quotes the U.S. energy chief as saying that global warming is real. When top scientists, the world's economists, and the political elite all agree climate change is happening and is deadly, where is the action? A dreadfully important question is whether the energy guzzling rich countries intend to do anything about the death of ecosystems, species and millions of humans while there is still time to stabilize climate in a livable condition? Or as long as the death and suffering is relegated mostly to the poor and other species, will the over developed world continue to use yet more energy, causing even more climate change, in order to live comfortably through the lead up to Armageddon? After all, this World is expendable as the faithful will be whisked away to an after-life in paradise, where surely energy and ecological crises are non-existent. Meanwhile, back on Earth our profligate use of energy is destroying the ecosystems upon which the human family is entirely dependent. Do we get the fact humanity and the Earth are dying? Do you? And what are you going to do about it?
