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.

US Climate plan aims to help ecosystems adapt to change

The debate over the causes of climate change continues to rage, but federal, state and tribal agencies aren't waiting around for the argument to be settled. They believe climate change is here, and they're working on ways to help wildlife, land and communities adapt.

Two federal agencies and a state wildlife department have developed a broad plan for helping ecosystems become more resilient as the climate changes.

A VERY IMPORTANT WATCH : The consequences of Unbridled Consumerism

A VERY IMPORTANT WATCH : The consequences of Unbridled Consumerism | CLIMATE CHANGE WILL IMPACT US ALL | Scoop.it

VIA Al Jazeera "Witness"

“If we never look at the consequences of our behavior, we can always maintain the illusion of our competence. ." Dietrich Dörner

 

Green is an unusual film. It is both a hard hitting portrayal of the causes and consequences of deforestation in Indonesia, and a film which captures the tranquillity and calm of wild nature. It contains no narrative or dialogue and yet helps us understand complex commodity chains. The film takes viewers on an emotional journey, following Green's final days and revealing the devastating impact of fulfilling unbridled consumerism thru logging, land-clearing and palm oil plantations.

Stunning images of the natural world and its biodiversity are counter-pointed with scenes of their destruction and the resulting loss of all life in the forest. NOTE: This film contains upsetting scenes including cruelty to animals.
