Climate change affects islands, but one snail hangs on.

Climate change affects islands, but one snail hangs on.

We can already detect ways in which small creatures are surviving against the odds. The humans and other larger species on islands are next in line to suffer from climate change. Can we help them or do anything at all to mitigate global warming. There is an answer, but do all of our politicians know it?

Soil carbon is lost with global warming

Soil carbon is lost with global warming

Posted Thu, 04 Sep 2014 09:52:00 GMT by Dave Armstrong

The world’s soils have been tested, in a thermal gradient from the Arctic through to the tropical rainforest. Despite claims to the contrary, the loss of carbon as global warming increases is going to increase markedly. We have to prepare ourselves to investigate how soils can be somehow prevented from contributing so much of the greenhouse gases that we have to reduce.

There aren't many large forest animals in Europe, but the lack of forest is the main reason for that. Is it possible that more forest losses will take place because of the great storms cause d by climate change, the wildfires caused by global warming or the increased infection of many species by fungi?

Is it crazy to expect tiny pockets of natural communities to hold evidence of past climate change? The evidence is building that they do indeed have genomes full of information on their ancestry.

In the Indian Ocean and the Pacific there are the volcanic islands of the Tahitian and Hawaiian archipelagos. Many other island nations based on coral atolls now live almost beneath the waves as our carbon emissions literally force global warming to drown them.

The Atlantic runs the larger Pacific pressure system? Not quite, but the links between these two great ocean basins are closer than anyone thought.

It isn't just us who suffer badly from climate change and global warming. Although some species are thriving, many, such as the emperor penguin, are subject, both now and in the near future to multiple threats, leading to their extinction.

Will we continue to see these terrible spells of freezing cold weather in many parts of the Northern Hemisphere? It is likely that they will decrease in number, according to the latest research!

Have we got it right on this deforested planet? Are those carbon dioxide emissions becoming smaller or have we got it all wrong yet again? You've guessed it - we've been underestimating both the gases and the devious landowners.

Finally, the pieces are starting to fall into place. Or rather, when a small piece of this ice jigsaw melts, the whole puzzle is suddenly completely in our laps. Lapping at the shores of every shore like a slow tsunami.

How many tonnes of carbon does it take to sink a planet? New research is always enlightening us on how the warming of Earth will affect us. Trouble is, the news is always negative, there just isn’t much good coming our way, although we are checking out any positive possibilities (sorry, they’re not probabilities).

The carbon dioxide connection is finally obvious. Now we need to look ahead and prepare for the inevitable flooding that will happen as this last decade is followed by even quicker sea-level rise.

So will global warming affect your garden or the wild animals and plants around you? The answer is now clear, as more and more results appear around the earth, from drought and flood to simply warmer summers.
