A Week in the Death of a Planet
What a week it has been in climate change: ends up Antarctica is dramatically warming too [ark | search], America's old-growth is dying [ark | search], the U.S. East coast is to be submerged [ark | search], and spring is coming two days early [ark]. Thankfully, the signs of ecological collapse have now become so evident that global citizenry and their governments are swinging into action — committing to ending the damage, and protecting and restoring global ecological systems. The people made clear that ecological transformation was required, and governments listened rather than be overthrown. In the face of imminent global ecological collapse, a new found sense of commitment and sacrifice reigns, as plans are being made to end ancient forest logging and coal use, while embracing energy alternatives, efficiency and conservation. Sigh.
