At least a third of the Himalayan ice cap is doomed. That means there is No Hope. Those glaciers supply both india and china, and, combined, they have a population of approximately 3 billion people and growing. (about 40 per cent of the world's population). They get their water from the melting glaciers of the Himalayas, but so does everyone else in that region. The two countries already have a history of disputes over water. The populations grow, and the water diminishes.
Then, there's pakistan, too. All three of these countries have nuclear weapons. There are troubles there, as well. The indians and the pakistanis already hate each other, on the natch--and that hate ain't goin away. Now, give them cause. It wouldn't hurt if we weren't overpopulated, but, oh, well. Climate change/global warming is a ticking time bomb.

Pacific Northwest salmon are dying because of the warming waters. That sets off a catastrophic chain of ecological events. The killer whales are already starving because of this loss of salmon ((polution, over fishing, global warming). 2 minute video and link.

Gone In A Generation. This is a really comprehensive article. Global warming/climate change is here and has been doing it's damage for a generation. Forests. Floods, Fires, and Fisheries. This is a real dose of reality. Already, there's no going back. The world is changed.

Climate change is here and it looks like starvation. But, the implications that arise from starvation are mass migration, political and social chaos, ethnic cleansing/genocide, destabilized economies, and war. With starvation looming on the horizon, there's nowhere to go but down.

It's their world, their future, their fight. Older generations don't seem to be up to the task.

Reality is on it's way and it's in a mad dash. There's a lot here, sadly.

Climate change/global warming: it's here, it's now, and it's real. The last year the U.S. has gotten pounded. And, the damage is done. It must be mitigated, but this is the new normal. The cost in life and treasure is off the charts.
We have a president, republican leaders(?), and evangelical nut jobs that do nothing but add fuel to this raging fire.

Sikhs around the world will be planting a million trees as a gift to the planet in commemoration of their founder's 550th birthday. Let's compare this to what evangelicals are doing to help fight global warming/climate change. Gee, that would be nothing. Even worse, they deny it's happening. The only thing they work for is the end of the world (their 'rapture')--and that would be only about themselves. The Sikhs work to help everyone (that's all flora and fauna) and the evangelicals work to meet their own needs. HUH.
