As scary as it may sounds but all signs are right and factual on to our faces but ,we seemly careless. We continue knowing to contempt nature and it’s now that, we can do nothing If we don’t care about our feature.right now and change our ways
Many of you wont remember this but ‘Climate Change Deniers’ have been around since the mid 1970s. https://bit.ly/3bNucLa when scientists discovered that chlorofluorocarbons (CFC’s ) in everyday aerosols and fridges were destroying the ozone layer.
How we all roared at that, until the great storm in England 1987 https://bit.ly/3oTUSh4 the first clear sign that the climate was changing for the worst. I remember driving to work the next day amongst the devastation to the UK’s (often ancient) tree population and extensive damage to property and our daily lives.
FAST FWRD 34 years and they (the climate deniers) still exist and are alive and well living in the goverment’s of #DonaldTrump and #Michael McCormack, the acting #Australian #PrimeMinister two of the worst culprits of climate change denial, both heavily reliant on #fossilfuels #exports #oilandgas and #coal for their political agenda and economic recovery to succeed.
Ironic when you think about the fact that both countries are amongst the worst hit by the climate crisis, with their people facing the fury of extreme heat, wildfires, (that burnt at a football size field every minute in the western United States), draught, and weather patterns from East to West, showing that the last five years have been the worst on record.
In the US the latest findings from researchers at Stanford University and UC San Diego show that wildfire smoke is now responsible for as much as half of the fine-particulate air pollution in western United States . That’s about double the level that smoke accounted for in the mid-2000s, according to the paper published last Tuesday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences and reported by the #SanFransiscoChronicle, just two days ago. https://www.sfchronicle.com/california-wildfires/article/California-wildfires-could-upend-years-of-15869216.php
This latest article published online by Slate.com is part of #FutureAgenda, a series from Future Tense articles in which experts suggest specific, forward-looking actions that the new Biden administration should implement, on Wednesday, Feb. 3.
The incoming #BidenAdministration has got its work cut out, and no time to enjoy the post election honeymoon Presidents usually enjoy.
Joe Biden’s new government will have to move pretty damn quickly if we are to have any hope of reversing, or at least staving off a global #climatecatastrophe. 4 years of the #trumpadministration and climate change policy reversal running into the hundreds saw to that.
Are we entering a third world war, with #thefutureoftheplanet and a living species at stake?
The #ClimateScienceNews website reports the views of climate scientist Michael Mann in which he states that The New Climate War, “the enemy” — in this case, “the #fossilfuel companies, right-wing plutocrats and oil-funded governments” and other forces are standing in the way of large-scale action to combat climate change. “Any plan for victory requires recognizing and defeating the tactics now being used by in-activists as they continue to wage war,” he writes.
If we are to have a hope of saving the planet (yes that’s right, the whole planet and every living creature on it) we have to beat the climate change deniers first before we can even think about tackling the climate crisis. We need to see vast changes from the new US, Australian governments in order to do that. If we ever needed them to act on #climatechange – it’s now, as we fast approach the climate tipping point, and the point of no return.
