Okay, in the past two weeks, there’s been a slew of reports signalling the impacts of global warming are becoming more severe. It’s bad news and I can’t gloss over that fact. Among the latest red flags:
- A report that found climate change is likely to cut trout habitat in the American west by over 70%.
- Walruses are heading to shore earlier than ever before because of the loss of Arctic ice, putting pups at risk of crushing.
- A report that found global warming is pushing plants and animals to higher latitudes faster than previously thought.
- And the latest reports that the northwest and the northeast passages are open to business due to record Arctic sea ice melt, fueling, of course, international rancor and a commercial free for all that stands to put this fragile part of the Earth at greater risk than ever before.
It’s bad, but stay tuned because I’ll post the good news shortly.
