It’s been obvious for years that the world’s food supply is at severe risk from climate change and other effects, including drought, severe weather and infestation. The same situation applies to the world’s oceans which are nearly out of fish.
What is astounding is how very little aware people are of these collapsing food sources. The world will flat run out of things to eat sometime in our lifetimes, but very little is being done. And it appears (to me) that almost nobody even cares.
None of this is news on this blog, it’s been documented before, but the situation is worse then ever. The Great Barrier Reef in Australia is going to be entirely lost – and soon. Reefs are critical to the survival of the oceans, but this bleaching is happening all over the world. Once gain, nothing can be done (lots of hand-wringing and anguish and ‘calls for action’ but it won’t make any difference now, it’s far, far too late).
Humanity is sleepwalking its way towards the Apocalypse, unfolding now on a daily basis. Long before humans die of heat stroke, they’ll be dying by the millions from starvation. Dehydration will also kill hundreds of millions too.
The planet is that screwed up.
