CLIMATE CHANGE HAS PAST THE POINT OF NO RETURN!

If you haven't seen VICE on HBO; or if you don't have HBO, here is a program aired two weeks ago on the ice melt in Antarctica.    If your computer can handle the extra ram memory I suggest you click the icon lower right and watch it in enlarged screen view.  

The talk about the need to stop climate change is over - we have passed the point of no return; now it is just a matter of how to adjust to it.

  2. In the 10,000 years since the last ice age it has been warmer and it has been colder.

    1. It is not that it is changing; but the rapid rate of change. Man is responsible for polluting the environment past a point of return, now nature will adjust for our folly - and we may not like the outcome.

  3. It would be interesting to come back to life in a hundred years or so and have a look around at the world. It would probably be like something out of a science fiction movie! Sad indeed!

    1. The technological change in your and my life time is astounding; now the environmental change in the lifetime of the NOW generation will be as startling.

  4. Everyone was warned. Did they listen? I keep telling David to build that houseboat and make it fast. He's not listening either.

  5. I must say that responses such as Rob's noting that the climate has always fluctuated truly miss the point. It doesn't matter if it's happened before or even what degree of change is caused by man and what degree is part of a natural cycle -- the question is what can we do to mitigate the effects and/or slow them down. Rob's response is a classic cop out. So is just saying "we're fucked." There are degrees of being fucked -- I figure we should at least be trying to stock up on lube before the anal rape begins.

  6. I can understand why some politicians are climate change deniers, they're paid to be climate change deniers. What I don't understand is why the average person that isn't paid to deny climate change would do so.

    What's the downside to cleaning up the environment??? We have a nicer planet to live on???
