The shifts will result from the South Pacific rain band responding to greenhouse warming. This means South Pacific island nations will experience more extreme floods and droughts, as recorded by Sunstroke author David Kagan in Doomwatch Legacy.

Humankind has not woven the web of life.
We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
All things are bound together.
All things connect.

Chief Seattle, 1854

Everyone needs to take global warming seriously before the end of the world as we know it.

its called "global" for a reason, lets hope the inhabitants of the globe wake up and do something before Earth turns into a blue and green Venus......

Were this only the least of it, but it isn't, far, far from. This is not the end, but it may be the beginning of the end. Because this is not the only such event taking place or coming. All from our insane love affair with fossil fuels. Cut off your nose to spite your face? Yeah, the richest of us do exactly that, only not just to themselves, to all of us.

Thanks for this interesting article, Dan. The more we learn about global warming, the urgency of the situation becomes more obvious. Hopefully this will lead to a decreasing acceptance of the use of fossil fuels.

And yet there are still those who choose not to listen.

We all know there is global warming but it is conveniently being ignored by big corporations and countries like China. Maybe we have already crossed the point of no return and will not be able to reverse climate change or even stop it from getting worse.
