Between 150 and 200 species are going extinct every single day. We are likely to begin seeing periods of ice-free Arctic by as soon as this coming summer, or the summer of 2016 at the latest. The 14 hottest years on record have all occurred in the last 16 years. August, September, and October of 2014 were each the hottest months ever recorded, respectively, and 2014 is already tied with the hottest year ever recorded. All this and we are only .85C above pre-industrial temperatures. Have we already gone off the climate precipice? What can we expect in the climate disrupted future, and what should we do now?
This post is overdue (by about 20 years). I’ve never once posted about this topic, but it’s probably time I did. I’m going to link it to my website somewhere since this is so overdue.
This post is about free food. No, I’m not giving away any free food (sorry). This post is about why free food is unethical.
I get a LOT of requests for free food. Hundreds and hundreds per year. Here is an example I received today:
Readers of this blog are aware that Survival Acres supports climate change science. Specifically, I am in full agreement that the Earth’s climate is changing and that humans are a major contributor to the causes through greenhouse gas forcing, logging, fracking, industrial and agricultural activity.
The world has been experiencing rapid irreversible climate change at an unprecedented scale and speed in Earth’s history, unleashing huge storms, floods, droughts, sea level rise and gargantuan amounts of ice melt (to say nothing of permafrost loss and methane release). These measurements and effects have taken place all over the world, from the Arctic to the Antarctic and all points between. No region on Earth has been unaffected.
