Millions of refugees – I’ve been warning about this for years and years, yet it has never been picked up. And now it’s here.

“Population growth, climate change, desertification, wars, famine in Somalia and Sudan. These are the factors that are forcing people to leave.”

Millions of Africans’ will flood Europe unless it acts now, warns European chief, as Paris evacuates huge migrant camp

Is This The Start of Runaway Global Warming?

This is an essay by William P Hall, President, Kororoit Institute, Evolutionary Biology of Species and Organisms.

The observations show a growing risk to human society from runaway global warming, and they beg explanation.

This essay focuses on observations of what appears to be the start of runaway warming in the Arctic that may have profound effects on global climates over the next few years; and a plausible cause – the warming driven release of methane gas from permafrost forming a strong greenhouse cap over the Arctic Ocean.

Running On Empty – Famine Taking It’s Toll

Not much in the American news about this, but it is one of the world’s largest humanitarian disasters in history unfolding right now.

Running On Empty

There’s very little interest in Western nations to stories like this. The dead and dying go ignored so easily.

Sea-level rise may displace 13 million people in the US by 2100

This is a story that will “hit home” – but will Trump just try to build another wall?

Sea-level rise may displace 13 million people in the US by 2100.

Mathew Hauer, a demographer at the University of Georgia in Athens, says that until recently most studies that predicted the risks associated with sea-level rise used current population numbers combined with projections of future sea levels.

Lost Tribes

Desdemona Despair has posted an interesting article, titled “Why are the lost tribes now emerging from the Amazon?“.

This is an interesting story. But it is always one that winds up ending badly.From the article:

“They may well be what we once were, but they quickly can become like us. For good or bad.”

We’re far removed from “what we once were”. We stomped it out of ourselves and everyone else in endless campaigns of bloody violence. The mold is to make everyone a corporate asset. Now to figure out how to do that to them (tourist attraction most likely).

200 Hours Towards Unstoppable Extinction

This is bad news… At some point in the very near future, we’re going to be looking at a period of time encompassing as little as 200 hours where the world’s permafrost can potentially melt, dumping gigatons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

Where the tipping point lies for runaway permafrost thaw is so uncertain that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change doesn’t factor it into its reports. But new research shows we might reach it sooner than we think.
