More than 95 percent of the area's native habitat has been destroyed by cultivation or urban expansion, leaving more endangered bird, mammal and other species in the southern San Joaquin than anywhere in the continental U.S. http://www.sfgate.com/science/article/California-drought-Central-Valley-farmland-on-5342892.php

▶  CLIMATE CHANGE, CORAL REEFS, DEFORESTATION AND DENGUE.

The 21st century will present gloomy challenges for Costa Rica and the rest of Latin America, such as the collapse of wildlife habitats, animal extinction, water scarcity and the spread of disease in an already vulnerable population.

The United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) laid out this forecast on March 31, as one of its region-by-region follow-ups to the September global assessment on climate change. The reports collect over 12,000 peer-reviewed scientific papers looking at climate’s future impact on environments and society, with the intention of preparing regional leaders to adapt.

Leading spiritual teacher Thay suggests that our search for fame, wealth, power and sexual gratification provides the perfect refuge for people to hide from the truth about the many challenges facing the world. Worse still, our addiction to material goods and a hectic lifestyle provides only a temporary plaster for gaping emotional and spiritual wounds, which only drives greater loneliness and unhappiness..... http://www.guardian.co.uk/sustainable-business/zen-master-thich-nhat-hanh-love-climate-change

A lack of sea ice, caused by global warming, meant the bear was unable to hunt seals and starved, according to an expert who had been monitoring the animal in Svalbard, Norway  http://www.theguardian.com/environment/picture/2013/aug/06/polar-bear-climate-change-sea-ice

                   POLAR BEARS - THE QUEST FOR SEA ICE (2:49)
This beautiful video shows something terrible: How polar bears now have to swim for incredibly long distances looking for ice to hunt their prey without being seen. Many of them drown. Some get back to land and die later, exhausted and starved. All thanks to the collapse of the northern ice sheets. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYM4ndcV4Uo

Polar Bears have long been the poster species for the problem of climate change. But a new paper in Conservation Letters argues that supplemental feeding may be necessary to prevent polar bear populations from going extinct. Polar bear expert Andrew Derocher from the University of Alberta joins Host Steve Curwood to discuss how we can save the largest bear on the planet.http://www.loe.org/shows/segments.html?programID=13-P13-00007&segmentID=2

 LET THERE BE NO DOUBT:  THIS GEO-ENGINEERING OUR CLIMATE CAMPAIGN IS ABOUT PROFIT, BIG PROFIT.... FOLLOW THE MONEY

 

                                 EXCELLENT VIDEO REPORT

                                   May 20, 2013 Democracy Now

As the carbon dioxide in the air hits 400 parts per million for the first time in human history, some are arguing that the best way address climate change is to use the controversial practice of geoengineering — the deliberate altering of the Earth’s ecological and climate systems to counter the effects of global warming. ...

The arguments for and against climate engineering revealing the extent of vested interests linking researchers, venture capitalists and corporations with Clive Hamilton, professor of public ethics at Charles Sturt University in Canberra, Australia, He’s the author of Earthmasters: The Dawn of the Age of Climate Engineering.

There’s virtually no regulation of geoengineering. And when it comes to sulfate aerosol spraying, there’s nothing to prevent a government, any government, or even a corporation or a billionaire with a messiah complex, from launching a program of taking control of the Earth’s weather by installing this kind of solar shield. So the absence of governance, the absence of regulation and the exclusion, particularly of people from poor and vulnerable countries, is a very serious concern….

This is not just a concern for older generations, as Blaylock informs us, but even for small children and babies.  Even home air-filtering systems aren’t going to help, because the particles are nano-sized, far too small to be eliminated by even the most costly home air filter... http://www.nationofchange.org/neurologist-warns-neurodegenerative-disease-surge-due-chemtrail-spraying-1378712902

The Arctic, a large portion of which is controlled or claimed by Russia, is a new carbon El Dorado, holding up to a quarter of the globe’s undiscovered oil and gas reserves. According to one energy industry insider: "Climate change is opening up one of the last frontiers for hydrocarbons on our planet. The Arctic … could be set for rapid change and development as exploration, production and infrastructure will have an inevitable, irreversible impact."

pdjmoo's insight:

Climate change is the result, not the cause, of many factors involving human-caused destruction of the balance of environment within our planetary biosphere. We all need to simply stop our destructive ways and put our brilliant minds to finding a new way of living on this planet in harmony with our natural world. We  have to cease raping and pillaging the planet for profit as if it is our private piggy bank.  By collective focus on restoring the planet a new economy and criteria for "jobs" would automatically evolve.  The old military minded capitalism mindset has lead us to this mess - and we must move past it if we are to survive.   If we keep pushing we will not only destroy humanity but all life on Planet Earth. Why is it we can't envision something entirely different than the way we have been operating?  Profiting from the destruction of our planet is insane.

Daniel LaLiberte's curator insight, May 27, 2013 3:24 PM

We are ALREADY messing with nature, absolutely and catastrophically.  We must stop that, no question, as soon as possible, as fast as feasible.   Whatever we do should NOT be used as a substitute for eliminating all fossil fuel burning.  Full stop!

 

But it simply won't be enough to merely stop burning fossil fuels, because it is too late to stop the reinforcing feedbacks that will make things much much worse.  If we don't do anything more, then we are giving up, we are admitting defeat and accepting all the worsening destruction that follows.

 

To restore nature, we have NO choice but to mess with nature some more in order to actively counter the effects and the causes of global warming and all the rest of our destructive practices.  We must do it right, of course, and not make things worse.  It is not enough to deal with just the symptoms of the problems, but we must get at the underlying causes.  We must do it on a global scale, because the problems are global.   It won't be a short term solution because these are necessarily long term problems that require long term solutions.

 

We MUST save the planet by messing with nature.  But we also must solve a large number of other problems that allowed us to get into this mess.  Unrestrained irresponsible exploitation of nature for the benefit of a few is at the root of all those problems.

Global carbon-dioxide emissions increase by 1.0 Gt in 2011 to record high

Global carbon-dioxide emissions increase by 1.0 Gt in 2011 to record high | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it

Global carbon-dioxide (CO2) emissions from fossil-fuel combustion reached a record high of 31.6 gigatonnes (Gt) in 2011, according to preliminary estimates from the International Energy Agency (IEA). This represents an increase of 1.0 Gt on 2010, or 3.2%. Coal accounted for 45% of total energy-related CO2 emissions in 2011, followed by oil (35%) and natural gas (20%).

 

Are there any more words to attack this stupidity of our so-called world leaders? Start preparing for the final reckoning.
