Our glaciers are shrinking

THE EARTH IS SPEAKING
BUT IS ANYONE LISTENING?

Over the last several weeks a number of huge markers have occurred in climate change including but not limited to:

  • A large piece of Greenland four times the size of Manhattan has broken off and is moving into the open Atlantic
  • Global temperatures are higher than at any time in history both atmospheric and sea level temperatures
  • 40% of the phytoplankton in the planet's oceans have died since the 1950s according to Canadian scientists Researchers at Canada's Dalhousie University say the global population of phytoplankton has fallen about 40 percent since 1950. That translates to an annual drop of about 1 percent of the average plankton population between 1899 and 2008.
  • The Earth's oxygen supply is beginning to shrink according to scientists at Scripps Institute.
  • Russia is burning and occupants of Moscow are having to wear masks. The air quality is at very unhealthy levels and the city is engulfed in smog.
  • Pakistan is experiencing epic flooding.
  • The list goes on.
The doubters will say these are unrelated events that have nothing to do with the climate. On the other hand, these are all evidences of an ill climatic system. Time is getting closer and closer when those tipping points are going to be reached and nothing can be done- world governments sit on their hands well paid by fossil fuel special interests in the meantime people die.
