We are committed now and cannot avoid many of the worst consequences of climate change. The mass extinction presently under way on this planet will accelerate. We must radically change our way of life if our species is to have any chance at all of survival.

I agree with Brian. We have to change the way we think and act in order to save the planet :-)

Ocean acidification is destroying the shellfish industry on the west coast. As ocean-linked industries falter, do you think climate change deniers will notice at last?

Noted. I wonder sometimes if there will be an earth in 50 years or 100 years from now. We are really screwing our Grand and Great Grand Children

Very sad but it's not like we haven't been warned. The Bible says the at the end of times, there will be no life in our oceans and seas.

Ever seen the ''water villages'' in Borneo, the Philipines, Malaysia, etc? Thousands of people living in stilt houses over the plumbing....just let the feces, urine, garbage....everything......just let it FALL!
