Amongst all the noise; global warming still has consequences

Maine had its first deadly shark attack, killing a woman swimmer.   A tooth left in the body was identified as a great white.   Great white sharks are known to migrate as far north as the Bay of Fundy; seal populations off the coast of Canada have been known to draw them in to feed.   But, the cold waters off the coast of Maine have kept sightings low.  


Maine waters are now warming and lobster men are worried about the lobster populations migrating farther north.  The warmer waters are also attracting larger predators and other invasive species not common to our coastal environment.   


The environment is changing.  Global warming results are visible. 


Sensible people would like to see the world move toward a greener energy policy.  


However, the elephant in the room is always ignored: Global warming and most other environmental dangers are the results of human over population; which continues at an unsustainable rate.

  1. Don't worry, the human population will stabilize with the food availability. I think my grand kids have some serious problems in front of them.


COMMENT: Ben Franklin said, "I imagine a man must have a good deal of vanity who believes, and a good deal of boldness who affirms, that all doctrines he holds are true, and all he rejects are false."
