Ok, went along similar lines. over 80% of various types of large fish gone.Haven't seen that one but Attenborough did some shows on extinction and the way the oceans are being stripped of life is truly scary.
We need to stop crapping on this planet, there ain't another like it.
peoples eating habits contribute so much damage to the environment, but many individuals choose to ignore it, and no politician is willing to mention it.Ok, went along similar lines. over 80% of various types of large fish gone.
They show the farce they are of a few big name so called conservationist, eg plastic drive, dolphin safe label.
Of memory I think they mentioned 48% of all plastic in the ocean are from commercial fishing fleet dumping old nets into the ocean, yet no-one will tackle that as the $$ trail of donation comes from the fishing fleet coys. Hypocrasy.
Straws for instance 0.001% yet the focus was on straws. Not sure how much might be distorted facts to prove the shows point but it is an eye opener. Worth the watch
Yep I think for all the debates you can have about models then the evidence in front of our eyes would seem to overwhelm that.Yeah, nothing happening, we don't need to do anything.
The impact of climate change is clear and it isn't about to happen, it isn't something we need to worry about in the future, it is already happening.
Thanks for posting. More evidence that the climate is changing.
As reported yesterday, the majority of European nations shivered through their coldest April in decades, in more than century for some — and now looking at the latest mid-range models, more of the same is forecast for May.
Low solar activity is prolonging winter, it is cooling the planet (via a meridional jet stream flow, an influx of cosmic rays & volcanic eruptions, among many other forcings: see links at the bottom of the page) — this is delaying planting, and making life all-round miserable for growers across large portions of the northern hemisphere.
The year 2021 will go down as “the year without a spring,” because as we head into the second week of May, latest GFS run shows no signs of a warm-up across Europe (nor in America for that matter). And although there will be the odd pocket of anomalous warmth here and there, these are all too fleeting.
This is a serious situation for farmers across the hemisphere, farmers that have already been hit with delayed planting and slow germination following the historically cold April just gone.
The models see an intensification of the cold beginning May 10, which by May 13 will have walloped central and western nations with temperature anomalies as much as 20C below the seasonal norm. It is not out of the question that countries such as France –the 5th largest grain producer on the planet– registers record mid-May frosts.
Perhaps even more astonishingly, heavy May snow is forecast over the next few days for nations such as the UK. Even Germany, France, and Spain are set for mid-“spring” flurries, while Scandinavia and the Alps look set for something of a burial.
There will be a warm-up at some point, because as easy as it is for this wavy jet stream phenomenon to drag cold air down from the Arctic, it can just as easily pull hot air up from Africa (in the case of Europe); however, when the shift does finally arrive, it will likely be too late for many of the harvests, and then in turn, anomalous heat will bring its own set of problems.
