 Dear Mr. Prime Minister:  If the Climate collapses so will our ecosystems, and the economy. There will be massive social chaos on the planet, and there will be no jobs.  Your environmental policies are destroying the crucial natural environment that we need to stabilize the planet and that supports all life... all in the name of profits and "jobs"...It is time for you to wake up to your responsibility...playing to the corporate dollar will be your downfall ... and ours ...For Without Nature We Do Not Exist.....pdjmoo

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

Largely uncontrolled gas companies in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve are already drilling and fracking in much of the park, endangering precious water and environmental resources.
In Botswana’s longest running court battle the San Bushmen finally won the right to access these water sources and remain in their ancestral land. If the gas industry operates like it does in the USA their victory and the survival of this ancient culture is in question.

Biodiversity crisis: Climate Change and Habitat Loss causing 6th mass extinction : scientists

Scientists meeting at the University of Copenhagen have warned that biodiversity is declining rapidly throughout the world, describing the loss of species as the 6th mass extinction event on the earth. The world is losing species at a rate that is 100 to 1000 times faster than the natural extinction rate, with the challenges of conserving the world's species larger than mitigating the negative effects of global climate change.

“Genetic variation is crucial for species to adapt to changing climate,” said researcher Inger Greve Alsos, associate professor at the University of Tromsø in Norway.

“If a species with limited seed dispersal perish from an area, it means that this species as a whole will experience an irrevocable loss of genetic diversity.”

Report: Climate Change Has Already Brought Catastrophe to US Wildlife

Report: Climate Change Has Already Brought Catastrophe to US Wildlife | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it

Jan 30, 2013

Climate change has already pushed the nation's wildlife into crisis, according to a report released Wednesday from the National Wildlife Federation (NWF), and further catastrophe, including widespread extinction, can only be curbed with swift action to curb the carbon pollution that has the planet sweltering.

Entitled Wildlife in a Warming World: Confronting the Climate Crisis, the report looks at 8 regions across the U.S. where "the underlying climatic conditions to which species have been accustomed for thousands of years," the report explains, have been upturned by human-caused climate change.

“Some of America’s most iconic species—from moose to sandhill cranes to sea turtles – are seeing their homes transformed by rapid climate change,” stated Dr. Amanda Staudt, climate scientist at the National Wildlife Federation.

Turtles producing more females as an effect of climate change - Inbreeding dangers

Turtles producing more females as an effect of climate change -  Inbreeding dangers | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it
The mating habits of marine turtle may help to protect them against the effects of climate change, according to new research led by the University of Exeter.

The gender of baby turtles is determined by the temperature of the eggs during incubation, with warmer temperatures leading to more females being born. Higher average global temperatures mean that offspring from some populations are predominantly female. This is threatening the future of some populations and there are concerns that inbreeding within groups due to a lack of males will lead to health problems.

AFRICA: At the Nexus of Agrofuels, Land Grabs and Hunger – Part 2 | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it

The forests in Africa absorb over 1.2 billion tonnes of carbon annually. With these diverse and natural forests, grasslands and prairie lands disappearing under investment schemes and the development of monoculture plantations for supposed "green" energy alternatives like agrofuels, not much else remains to absorb the shocks of hunger and climate change.
