Famine Early Warning System Warns 70+ Million May Need Emergency Food in 2017

The combined magnitude, severity, and geographic scope of anticipated emergency food assistance needs during 2017 is unprecedented in recent decades. Given persistent conflict, severe drought, and economic instability, FEWS NET estimates that 70 million people, across 45 countries, will require emergency food assistance this year. Four countries – Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan, and Yemen – face a credible risk of Famine (IPC Phase 5). In order to save lives, continued efforts to resolve conflict and improve humanitarian access are essential. In addition, given the scale of anticipated need, donors and implementing partners should allocate available financial and human resources to those areas where the most severe food insecurity is likely.[...] Read More

Contradictions Within Science

Desdemona has an article title “Global sea level rise accelerates since 1990 – Greenland ice largely responsible for the accelerating pace of sea-level rise

“The annual rate of sea level rise increased to 3.3 millimeters (0.13 inch) in 2014 – a rate of 33 centimeters (13 inches) if kept unchanged for a century”

It is this kind of bogus reporting that continues to deceive a uncaring public. The take away is “oh, it’s just 13 inches over a hundred years, no big deal” when the REAL sea level increase will be over 9 feet (108 inches) in that time period.[...] Read More

Climate Criminal

Plenty to be angry about today.  The latest Criminal in Chief betrayal to the world:

This pretty much says it all. The man does not care about anything except power and greed. His message to the world: drop dead.

TRUMP EXITS PARIS AGREEMENT

Without once mentioning the myriad harmful effects that climate change is increasingly visiting on the world including the U.S., minimizing the enormous potential economic benefits of the upcoming renewable energy transition, and looking backward to coal, Trump announced that the U.S. will withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement. He specified that neither the U.S. Nationally Determined Contribution nor contributions to the Green Climate Fund would be upheld. He did not specify the legal modalities of withdrawal, which vary between one and three yearsTrump did say that Paris or another agreement more favorable to the U.S. could be (re)negotiated. More information on the Paris Agreement can be found HERE.[...] Read More

Hundreds of Giant Seafloor Craters Found in the Barents Sea

Hundreds of giant craters erupting methane have been found in the Barents Sea. Some are over a kilometer in width.

This was expected by scientists and those who have researched this issue. Rising level of methane in the Arctic have been increasing to higher and higher levels for quite some time now. These craters are still leaking methane, but this is similar to the gigantic blowout craters also recently found in Siberia.[...] Read More

Stop hoping we can fix global warming by pulling carbon out of the air – Scientists warn of “dire consequences for food production or the biosphere”

Desdemona posted this title and topic (which I highly recommend you read), a topic near and dear to the message I’ve long stated here. The future means starvation – for billions.

Nobody is listening to this message. It’s rather stunning.

Even the majority of scientists themselves are really not listening. Obviously, a few are, but it’s an appalling small number.[...] Read More

When The Permafrost Fails…

When the permafrost fails, you can expect this to happen: Arctic stronghold of world’s seeds flooded after permafrost melts.

Does this mean that the world’s food supply is in trouble? Well sure. It’s always been in peril. The impacts of climate change are going to absolutely wreck food production.

If they can’t get these seeds safe, it means that if these crop species are lost for whatever reason, there is no backup plan either. I’ve looked. You might be shocked to learn that there really isn’t a plan to provide food if we lose our existing production capacity. These seeds are being set aside in case of catastrophic disaster (blight, insects, whatever) for crop diversity, but they’re not considered to be a part of a global backup plan for feeding the world during climate collapse. That plan does not actually exist.[...] Read More
