Climate Change Extinguishing Ocean Food Chain

Recent weeks have witnessed the warmest September on record globally, a drought plagued Amazon, unprecedented melting Arctic ice and of course the mega-hurricanes. If you walk out your door and sit with nature you can feel her distress. Now there are indications that the oceanic food chain is collapsing. Again I repeat the biological fabric of being is disintegrating. The plethora of dramatic global changes indicates that we may be entering a period of abrupt climate change, falling within the extreme range of scientific predictions. My sense is that most people know global warming is happening, they know the skeptics are kooks bought and paid for by the fossil fuel industry. But they do not yet know what to do about it. This lack of vision and leadership must be rectified.
Ocean warming threatens Antarctic wildlife
Scientists working in Antarctica have discovered an alarming rise in sea temperature that threatens to disrupt populations of penguins, whales, seals and a host of smaller creatures within a few decades… Rising temperatures and greater losses of sea ice could also spell big problems for krill. A study published last year showed krill numbers had fallen by 80% since the 1970s. Experts linked its collapse to shrinking sea ice.

    Considering all the events described above- one does not need the gift of a genius to realize that the climate of the planet is changing- and rapidly faster then even the most commtitted scientists on climate change have predicted. What do we need to see next? A major ice shelf falling off the antarctic- or perhaps next hurricane season wee see numerically more storms that are even more powerful. To call the USA the greatest nation on earth, is becoming more difficult for me to say- when there seems to be great denial by the powers may be-mostly republican who have their trunks buried in the sand.

    I'm emmbarrased to live on a planet with nearly no regard toward animals, or the woods, or nature in general. If I lived in a city, I would have to kill myself. I remember when my home near the beach was quaint and quiet all year round. Now, in summer, we get this tourists who think the world is made for them. It's store city, and I'm on a boycot. Geez, now do I have to boycot cars and everything electrical? Becuase I will.
