How is Your Climate/Can You Help Avoid the Worst Year in History?

How is Your Climate/Can You Help Avoid the Worst Year in History?

Posted Sun, 24 Jul 2016 10:30:00 GMT by JW Dowey

When our children ask what 2016 was like, what will we tell them about the likely hottest year that has ever been recorded.? We may be facing the truth about climate change next year, or even earlier.

How hot is the earth now?

Posted Mon, 25 Apr 2016 12:05:00 GMT by Dave Armstrong

We worry now a lot more than before about the planet’s surface temperatures. Now the Arctic is defrosting and sea levels even affect your seaside holiday, perhaps it is too late. But given the unprecedented talking about carbon limitations and political action, the classic crunch could come next year, when there could be a slight cooling. If not, we can’t blame El Niño, as we do for this year’s record breaking.

It is impossible to judge exactly how global warming will affect all of us. This includes remote populations of plants and animals, many of which could be important in predicting how climate is changing. We now know just how complex the rainfall, the temperatures, the sea ice and the desertification can become.

The world's water problems do not simply include the Aral Sea and this Bolivian lake. Whole states and nations are suffering from droughts that go unnoticed internationally. If we can alleviate the suffering of people and renovate some of the environmental conditions, then these neglected regions could achieve some of their former glory. In this case, ancient civilisations thrived in these high, inhospitable mountains, while we fail to maintain even a potable supply of water.

What are we going to do about energy production, while the Paris Summit on carbon emissions looms in December? While we twiddle our thumbs, global warming is worsening at a faster and faster pace. Each individual on earth needs to act like his personal government and environmental agent, to gain a fuller appreciation of how technology and 'new' thinking can prevent such vast amounts of emissions. Many solutions are being found, but they have to appear this year. Otherwise, the winter in Paris could be uncomfortable in so many different ways.

How to help the several hundred thousand people of Vanuata and its neighbours as this terrible storm dies down from category 5 to 4? Donations, I’m sure will be accepted worldwide for this terrible taste of future storms, while money is probably the last thing on the minds of many residents and observers.

Mature forest needed to protect species from climate change

Mature forest needed to protect species from climate change

Posted Sun, 08 Mar 2015 12:52:00 GMT by JW Dowey

La Niña and El Niño may be major headaches, but their use here in defining how species find mature tropical rainforest useful is major. The manakins have been seen here to use the great forest canopy, its moist conditions and its food supplies as a perfect refuge from El Niño’s droughts, over many years. If only the human race could find somewhere to shelter from those stormy blasts we can now expect.

Where are we going, as climate begins to dominate the year’s news? With Ukraine and Syria big on bad behaviour, the concentration needs to shift to the millions threatened by other events. As Lennon (and not Lenin) said, war is over, except it seems to hang on like an unwanted spectre. Global problems should now begin to occupy our collective thoughts.

Both climate and ecosystem research is important, as our ocean temperatures and pH change. It is an acidic and a basic problem. How will we cope, if even more fish disappear? And there is more to this than just what we eat. The whole atmosphere and our coastal communities are affected .

The news on sea-level rise is not from new computer models this time, but it is really bad. The previous estimates were wildly inaccurate, on the higher side---meaning recent rises have been accelerating much faster than we thought. Horrific increases are liable to hit us now.

If you are living in a part of the world that suffers from summer heat, drought may be just one of the many dangers you are facing. The temperature at which your health becomes endangered is possibly much lower than you thought (that is, it is much lower than the human death point: normally 43oC.)

We have covered the methane from cows and biodegradable materials, but the methane from our past could even have had an effect on the demise of the dinosaurs. Could it finally create an even greater global warming effect?

Will global warming bring more butterflies to northern Europe; can more species now live in the Arctic and Antarctic. We have to allow for changing habitat and even habitat preferences, if we are going to face the true character of global warming, drying environments or melting ice.
