Be Worried. Be Very Worried.

time_cover.jpgConcern regarding climate change has finally gone mainstream in the U.S., shown by the current Time Magazine cover story. “Never mind what you've heard about global warming as a slow-motion emergency that would take decades to play out. Suddenly and unexpectedly, the crisis is upon us… From heat waves to storms to floods to fires to massive glacial melts, the global climate seems to be crashing around us.” Perhaps now we can act?

    Time Magazine's cover story, is a rude awakening. We better take note, of what they are saying. Our live's, may very well depend upon it. We are dealing with a situation, comparable to the last ice age, in modern time's. With climate variable's so horrific, that people wont know what hit them. The current D.E.O.S. Gulf Stream scan's, show a huge failing of that system. Check it out, it's fading all over the place. Due to fresh water intrusion, from melting sea ice. It's also starting to change shape, the first signs of a rerouting back south. It look's like, the pentagon's 2003 scenario ( The Coming Climate Collaspe ) is no longer a scenario ! Now it's time to worry.

    Hey there Stormy,
    very interesting info and data. I knew when Natl Geographic finally featured a story on the far reaching implications on Global warming that the world could no longer ignore it, without looking like morons.
    Now Time! Wake up world and see what us “hippies” have known for some time. Mother Earth is sick and in the throes of some severe effects. Bless you Mother.

    It's about f*cking time the North Americans were alerted instead of maintaining ostrich( head in the sand) environmental politics.

    Superb…about f***ing time! Mainstream media 🙂
    Now all we need to do is revolt against our consumerist society, decarbonise our energy systems, stop deforestation, help the south with there progress and everything will work out just fine…

    Climate change crashing around our ears?!! I THINK NOT! Absolute denial the world has been in, especially the U.S. People have been working doggedly within the system in the UK for years preparing mitigation and adaptation plans etc.
    Thank goodness for Time! magazine finally propelling this into the U.S. public conscience. Now we just need to get China and India onboard and we are awayyyy….

    85% of American's , now believe in Global Warming. The other 15% live in the White House. Now that Time Magazine confirmed, that ( The Day After Tomorrow )is upon us. What are our solution's ? Four U.K. government officials, just introduced a plan , that would change the economic lifestyle of the U.K. people drasticaly. Reason, their current green house gas policie's are failing. They state, we now have to put Global Warming ahead of Economic Growth to achieve our goals. If not, we will lose this battle we can't afford to lose. Since the U.K., is year's ahead of us on this issue and are still failing. How far are we, willing to go on this issue. Their point is, you can't have it both way's , one has to suffer so the other will achieve dominance. We have awakened an angry Beast, and it's not going to be easy to tame her. It's going to take a huge amount of sacrafice to tame her. As a people ,are we willing to do this. That worrie's me more! For every 100 mile's we drive, we put 70 pound's of c02 into the Atmosphere. Time's that, by 200 million vehicle's in the U.S. alone. S.U.V.s are still the vehicle of choice in the U.S. …… some getting as little as 13 mile's to the gallon. We are going to have to make a choice……… Prosperity Or Survival….. it's our choice.

    I read that there was a recent study finding a 25% reduction in the sinking of salty water off of Iceland. This being the engine driving the circulation, have we seen a real beginning to a slow down or shut down? Many experts talk about possible slow down in 50-100 years. That makes no sense if we just recorded a 25% drop in sinking off of Iceland. What is right, the recorded reduction now, or the way out in the future reduction. Is there a tipping point along with a positive feed back loop set to surprise everybody???

    Glenn D:
    I want to learn more about the plan proposed by UK government officials that you mentioned – the one that involved putting global warming ahead of economic growth as a priority.
    If you see this, please let us know where you saw this, or the name of the plan or the officials.
    I completely agree: we'll never be able to do anything about climate change until we accept that “You can't have it both ways”: prosperity (US style) or survival

    I believe it was the Washington Post. The same day when i posted it. It did'nt give their names, but said they were equal to U.S. Congressman in status. It stated…. their plan would turn the U.K. lifestyle upside down, and that Global Warming had to be put in front of Economic growth. It did'nt give much details. Everything i mentioned in the earlier post was about it. Hope this help's.

    Can someone explain what this means? How will this change things in the world?
    It seems like this is really going to change everything as we know it?

    It's an eyeopener to look back and see how panicked we can be over something like man made climate change which simply is not true. Global warming has been exposed as an agenda rather than a legitimate problem.
    I look forward to the day when all of the Chicken Little's of the world realize that that big yellow ball in the sky has more to do with the earth's climate than anything that we can ever do to cause harm. Solar flares can be directly traced to changes in the earth's temperature as well as temperatures in the moon, Mars and other measurable planets. I doubt that rising temperatures on Mars is caused by all those Martians driving gas guzzling SUVs.
