    I think if the powers that be continue to deny climate change, a whole lot of people are going to find themselves washed away.

    Absolutely. I thought I might not be around when it would happen.  But it is happening so quickly, I just may.

    Thanks SpunkySenior.

    I'm thinking as big as it is there will still be people that claim man made climate change and globule warming is a hoax. Personally I take it as a sign that we better do something fast to save the plant. Cheers!

    I know.  Can you believe these people?  How much more blatant proof do they need? 
    Cheers to you Nanoose! :) :)

    Ya in the 70`s  or 80`s when I  first started hearing about globule warming I thought it would be great because I live in Canada and we could use some warmer weather but now I can see how stupid and un scientific I was. What gets me is I try to limit my carbon footprint but  a big industry can legally do more damage to the environment in 10 minutes then I could do in a life time. Cheers!

    We might each of us make only a minute difference, but if all of us do the right thing, then collectively we can make a big difference.
    Changes are infectious. Studies have shown that the strongest influence for change is how our friends and neighbors are doing things - especially when we see that the greener and greenest lifestyles are cheaper, healthier, more delicious and more beautiful.
    In addition, when politicians and big business see the big population trends and pressures, they follow: they must or they don't survive.
    We also live a super-low carbon footprint life - and it works! :)

    Ya I know I might not make a big difference but I would feel real bad if I did nothing to try  to do my part. I'm a residential grounds keeper and I only work for people who want things taken care of organically. I'm also seeing a steady increase of people starting to use solar energy in my area so maybe there is still hope. Cheers! This post was edited by Nanoose at October 10, 2018 10:39 AM MDT

    (Global Warming) - Icebergs breaking/ melting in polar oceans are causing sea level rise...

    When sea levels rise rapidly, as they have been doing, even a small increase can have devastating effects on coastal habitats. As seawater reaches farther inland, it can cause destructive erosion, wetland flooding, aquifer and agricultural soil contamination, and lost habitat for fish, birds, and plants. - National Geographic

    So true.  The Earth, herself, has flipped before and I think she is ready to do it again.  Granted, she will do it on her own but I think we escalated this flip.  We are not all to blame but we are part of it. 
    It's odd to think of us all falling off the planet.  What a visual that is. This post was edited by Merlin at October 9, 2018 11:46 AM MDT

    It is frightening.  All those people and their "things" being taken under by the ocean.  You know how much I love and live for the ocean.  I also know she rules the world and when she has had enough, there is no negotiation.

    About a trillion ton chunk of ice they say; that's nice! 
    In area about the size of Delaware.

    Scary, hu?  If the water levels change, so much for Miami and New York.  Key West will be history and who knows about Great Britain?  What about Finland?   What about Australia? Do you know?  Frightening.

    I didn't mention Canada.  One of my most loved places.  I'm sorry.  It seems you would be the first hit.  What about your neighborhood?  Lots of good thoughts and happy vibes coming to you! :) :) :) :) :) This post was edited by Merlin at October 9, 2018 7:54 PM MDT

    1 degree C more and we are doomed. We are supposed to be at the top of the temperature cycle, then it is upposed to decrease slowly into a new glaciation. We are speeding up the processes.

    Yeah, but you may starve to death because there won’t be enough land left to produce food on.
