I believe we are eventually going to be seeing the evidence for a rapid climate shift and many drastic environmental changes occurring on Planet Earth in the near future!

Thanks for these links Mindy. It's my thought that the changes will be rapid and dramatic perhaps even exponential.
It's the third world countries I really worry about. They will bare the brunt of these climate changes in terms of human misery while the developed countries continue with a profit first environment second policy from the point of view of CO2 emissions.

A new study released today in the journal Nature finds that the current decline in Arctic sea ice seems to be unmatched in 1,450 years.

Sending a Green Star is a simple way to say "Thank you"

You cannot currently send a star to Ronald because you have done so within the last week.

thanks....there is no planet b for life....we must ask what kind of world we want to leave the younger generations and the future....and then work to achieve it....unfortunately, too many people only care about the present and don't look at how their (or our as in humanity's) actions effect the world elsewhere and tomorrow...

Today Nov. 26th... it is 13 degrees, we usually start to get wet snow on the first....of Nov...its nice to be warm, but this is a little odd...I can still leave my windows open over night. Also weird...a huge bug flew into my daughters room...I have never seem anything like it..nor had she or my husband, maybe something from a warmer climate made it up here into our Canadian climate...
