Perspective. My father would have been 102 years old on the 25th of April [Born 1916] The Scripps CO2 measurements at Mauna Loa showed 410.05 parts per million on that same day. 410.05 This is a threshold last experienced on earth many, many millions of years ago. Records show that more than 10 generations of my family up to about…

Mitigation, adaptation … and suffering. And climate change as a “clear and present danger to civilization.

Earlier this year, a World Bank report found that water scarcity, exacerbated by climate change, could hinder economic growth, spur migration, and spark conflict. [Ya think?] However, most countries can neutralize the adverse impacts of water scarcity by taking action to allocate and use water resources more efficiently. Among the findings, key items include: Water scarcity, exacerbated by climate change,…
