Antarctic penguin loss reported to be severe.

Antarctic penguin loss reported to be severe.

Posted Mon, 15 Feb 2016 09:20:26 GMT by Paul Robinson

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.

How will we help the reefs to remain viable, as global warming overcomes so many of the regions in which reefs form important ecosystems?

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

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.

The influences of ecology are subtle. So far, few have realised that biodiversity, as noted in South Korea, is key to climate change in many situations. Maintaining our ecosystems should be key in these changing times, but our climate changes continue because we have not resolved the pollution or the degradation issues that we have caused. New ideas and new solutions are essential to combating our climate problems, as Norway (and many others) state categorically.

The late Pliocene has a lot in common with our projected temperature rise above two degrees Celsius. Carbon dioxide levels were high then too, so there is comparability which could help us in our quest to get ourselves out of the polluted mess we find ourselves in. The answer is deep down in ocean sediments and tied to glaciation and sea ice !

How well are we doing at restraining the natural forces that threaten us following the effects of anthropogenic global warming? The answer no politician wants is we're not adapting to the blindingly obvious. Cool it, the planet that is. Otherwise we'll emit so much carbon dioxide and methane that the weather will provide the punishment we deserve.
