Please listen to the entire segment through the segment on Congress ordering the canceling only satellite – which was already built – to measure the loss of ice from Antarctica under current conditions.
Latest Climate Science Report: Global Warming is a Slow-growing International Emergency that Must Be Stopped, NOW!
The government should pay (annual sum at the end of a year) to individual and families who pollute THE LEAST (or not at all) during that year. Generally speaking, those are the individuals who drive and fly the FEWEST miles on an annual basis (or not at all); and those households who use the LEAST amount of energy derived from fossil fuel burning, on an annual basis.
For details – click on “ABOUT THIS BLOG”, which is on the homepage of this blog. I will be updating that page to give higher amounts than the sums listed there due to the urgency of reducing the threat of faster warming, which will increase the already huge cost of current and future global warming related environmental destruction of our planet.
Like in the Steve Miller Band’s song:
“Fly Like and Eagle”:
“Time keeps on slipping, slipping, slipping; in the future.”
Thanks to boisterous words spoken by the President of the United States of America to the United Nations Assembly (whole World) 2017 September 19, many are saying Earth is closer to total annihilation NOW, either by nuclear warfare or, ultimately, by GLOBAL WARMING, (due primarily to a TOO THICK accumulation of GREENHOUSE GASES in its atmosphere, and originating from its HUMAN POPULATION burning WAY TOO MUCH FOSSIL FUEL, and paving away WAY TOO MUCH of its carbon sequestering surface vegetation in the last 150 years) — that its surface temperature WILL EXCEED the level required for sustaining life.
Need to Increase Annual Reward Rewards for Individuals and Families That Successfully Minimize their Carbon Footprint
Because countries like the U.S. and states such as Wisconsin have shown great reluctance to take any meaningful steps to cut annual greenhouse gas emissions released from their jurisdictions, especially by the transportation and utilities sectors of their economies, it is more important than ever for government lawmakers at the state and federal level to provide higher financial incentives than even those suggested in my Concern NOW proposal. The incentive tables need to be updated to provide more drastic and timely reductions in GHG emissions, since the world could be on the verge of what planetary scientists call “runaway global warming”, where the speed of global warming is amplified by positive (more) warming in the system; in essence, the current warming sets other warming forces in motion, creating a compounding effect. This is a very real and dangerous condition that must be avoided at all costs.
Therefore,the Conserve, NOW incentives plan is being revised and simplified as follow:
Foreign ministers from Arctic nations meeting this week in Fairbanks, Alaska, concluded their meeting “noting the entry into force of the Paris agreement on climate change and its implementation, and reiterating the need for global action to reduce both long-lived greenhouse gases and short-lived climate pollutants.”
Called the Fairbanks Declaration, the document says the leaders signed it “recognizing that activities taking place outside the Arctic region, including activities occurring in Arctic states, are the main contributors to climate change effects and pollution in the Arctic, and underlining the need for action at all levels”
The U.S.’ Secretary of State Rex Tillerson signed the document, which affirms the need for international action against climate change. In addition to the U.S. and Sweden, the other council nations are Russia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Norway and Iceland. The council also includes six indigenous groups and formal observers from non-Arctic countries.
No part of the world is warming faster than the Arctic.
Summer sea ice regularly shrinks to record lows, coastlines are eroding and wildfires are getting worse. Even the frozen tundra, a critical natural storage tank for carbon emissions, is no longer so frozen. Scientists reported this week that it is warming so rapidly that it now is emitting more carbon than it captures.
Sea ice extent has shrunk to record lows this year and will likely continue to do so, a March 2017 NASA report shows.
The events causing the annihilation human and all other forms of life on Earth [the Apocalypse] may have already been set in motion.
Global sea level rise could happen at nearly twice the rate previously projected by the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, even under the best scenario, according to a new report from the Arctic Council’s Arctic Monitoring Assessment Program (AMAP).
