Global Climate Change
The meaning of Climate Change
The more you know about our climate the better are your decisions!
As sun light is caught in a greenhouse,
so greenhouse gases will stay in a greenhouse.
Earth's atmosphere acts like the walls of a greenhouse!
One of the reasons for climate change
is the huge demand for energy / electricity!
It took Earth millions of years
to produce coal and oil,
but humans burn these fossil fuels
in a few hundred years!
The environmental balance
of Earth is severely damaged.

Exceptional Drought in many places|
Huge damage to Nature
Many scientist say:
Welcome to the new normal...
86% of California companies have climate plans
Air pollution was never so bad in India
Germany has set several solar records, but still burns coal for electricity!
Hydropower produces 3/4 of Brazil's electricity
China plants more trees than it cuts down
Everybody can take steps to reduce climate change:
* Take public transportation instead of driving
* Purchase minimally packaged goods, and non-reusable containers
* Access e-service: get your bank statement, bills, etc. online
* Use a power strip and unplug it when not in use
* Share this article in social media with your family and friends and convince them to take action
All these small actions may seem insignificant, when we consider the billions of tonnes of greenhouse gases that humanity is pumping into the atmosphere. Yet, all these billions of tonnes are created by the billions of people living unsustainably.
If we all change even the tiniest things, we can make a huge difference.
One small action for an individual, one giant leap for the environment.
For climate change, small can be big.
|New RECORDs all the time: More people = more food, more energy, more carbon dioxide ...|
are recorded by NASA
There is not guess work
reading the thermometer!
The word "willful ignorance" was used by Science Journal to describe|
some politicians who deny climate science, harming people by blocking clean air + climate action.
This is a real ad from an oil company!|
Surprised? 1962, when this ad was published
American oil companies were very proud to melt glaciers!
Sometimes you hear the story, that humans are not responsible for our changing climate?|
If someone tries to sell you this story, ask him / her to take a peace of paper and a pencil:
A) Ask the person how many humans lived on Earth 150 years ago. These numbers are proven and published by many countries.
B) Ask the person to multiply the amount of people with the amount of carbon dioxide CO2 a person breathes out every day. These numbers are proven and there is no discussion on this process.
C) Now ask the person how many humans live today on Earth. Again, use the official numbers.
D) Now ask again to multiply
Now ask the person why he / she thinks this huge difference makes no difference.
While waiting for an explanation, ask the person, if more humans need more food.
Ask the person if more humans need more energy, more houses, more ...
PLEASE, if you get an answer that convinces you, that humans have NO impact on climate change, please send us the answer, so we can learn.
The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico was the worst disaster Americans and all people on Earth have to deal with - the different evaporation rates, different color of ocean water in the Gulf, oil slick covering miles of sea floor, contamination of sea food.|
The Gulf of Mexico has influenced Earth's climate for over 1 million years, but this man-made oil catastrophe has changed Earth's climate and with it the life of millions of humans.
We have been warning for over 29 years, that methane ice is a big threat for our climate.
BSB research confirms that more and more methane ice is thawing, and is bubbling up in many lakes in Canada, Alaska, Siberia.
Methane was trapped there during the last ice age!!
Methane is 10 times more potent than CO2 in causing global warming - Imagine ten times stronger isolation of heat inside the Earth's atmosphere!!
If all methane ice on Earth will become gas and goes into our sky,
humans will need to invent new scales for storms, hurricanes, typhoons and flood surges.
Billions of living beings will die ....
The last decade was the warmest the Earth's weather stations have seen in 130 years of record-keeping.
The average water temperature worldwide was 62.6 degrees, according to the National Climatic Data Center, the branch of the U.S. government that keeps world weather records. That was 1.1 degree higher than the 20th century average, and beat the previous high set in 1998 by a couple hundredths of a degree.
The coolest recorded ocean temperature was 59.3 degrees in December 1909.
The warm ocean temperatures are already harming threatened coral reefs, are melting Arctic sea ice and are helping hurricanes to strengthen.
The Gulf of Mexico, where warm water fuels hurricanes, has temperatures dancing far about normal. NASA's sea-sensors show that water in the Northern Hemisphere has been considerably warmer than normal.
The Mediterranean is about three degrees warmer than normal.
Higher temperatures rule in the Pacific and Indian Oceans.
The heat is most noticeable near the Arctic, where water temperatures are as much as 10 degrees above average. The tongues of warm water could help melt sea ice from below and even cause thawing of ice sheets on Greenland.
Burning trees is one reason for climate change
Never before so many children are close to starvation
Climate Change + dustDust in the wind is rewriting the cycle of life in the mountains.
Throughout memory the warmth of spring has begun the mountain snow melt, bringing life-giving water to greening plants so they can blossom and renew their species.
But now, scientists say, the timing is being thrown off by desert dust stirred as global warming dries larger areas and human activity increases in those regions.
This dust darkens the surface of winter snows, warming it by absorbing sunlight that the white surface would have reflected. That causes the snow to melt earlier than in the past, running off before the air has warmed enough to spur plant growth.
On average cleaning away the naturally arriving dust delayed snow-melt by 11 days.
Overall, dust levels in the mountains are about five times greater than they were prior to the mid-19th century, due in large part to increased human activity in the deserts.
And climate change is likely to result in greater dust accumulation in the mountains as the US-Southwest warms and dries further. With the change in timing of snow-melt and plant growth the composition of alpine meadows could change as some species increase in abundance, while others are lost, possibly forever..
The global community must reduce the amount of carbon dioxide and other global-warming gases being pumped into the atmosphere.|
All governments must enact a comprehensive program.
Test your politician how much he cares!
Climate change is an accountability project. Members of Congress and the president should go on the record and make clear their views on climate and energy policy.
Likewise, the interest groups that have a stake in climate and energy policy should be scrutinized so that the people understand their views and how they are working privately and publicly to shape legislation and policy.
Are lawmakers delivering clear information to voters about where they stand on climate change?
Are voters informed about the lobbying efforts and campaign fund raising being driven by groups interested in influencing climate legislation?
Which interest groups are truthful in their messages?
Renewable energy and Recycling helps to be less vulnerable to foreign oil producers!
It reduces pollution, it reduces climate change!
Climate change makes floods / droughts more harmful / violent!
Be active, be responsible! Show, that YOU care for Nature!
Show, that YOU care about the next generation!
Climate change is among the most pervasive threats to the Earth today.|
Informed people have the power to address air quality, air pollutants, burning fossil fuel, the root causes of violent weather + floods + earth quakes and limit its impact on planet Earth the only home we have!
