The bad news will just get worse because no one has done anything to cooperate and accomplish anything toward stopping the heating of the earth.
The ice is all melting and other bad things are about to happen after that. No one seems to care. President Obama’s science adviser issued a warning that “anthropogenic climate disruption (ACD) is currently barreling forward so quickly that the entire state of California could be “overwhelmed.” The word is that nothing is under control. And that will be the way it is.
It means that the government can’t keep up with the “rising seas, drought and wildfires” that will be there as the Latinos below the border will overrun the United States eventually and fill up across from California to the Mississippi River. Forest fires will be common place in California and beyond.
Globally much of the ice on earth will be melting, eventually, from the glaciers on mountains, possibly Antarctica, the Arctic Ocean if we don’t get a handle on it. And so far our leaders are not leading. It should be all gone eventually. In its place the ice will no longer keep the earth cooler. Instead the earth will be significantly hotter since the water will be heating up. All that heat from the sun will be concentrated in the water since the ice will have been melted.
And that is because our “leaders” haven’t done anything to stop it. The collection of money that the nations have collected to stop climate change is about 30 years too late. And it is still stumbling around without a coherent plan to stop the rise of the earth’s temperature. There is no comprehensive plan to stop our date with destiny. There is no new plan that will save the day. (PHOTOS: 1947-2004) Muir glacier, Alaska.
The number one scientist on climate change is Peter Wadhams of Cambridge University. He had 40 years to study the climate. He has been around the world and has studied the Arctic area at the sites and has a complete understanding of the situation in the Arctic Ocean. He has ideas that could help solve the climate change but the leaders of nations, and more important, the CEOs, have decided to work on their portfolios, and do nothing.
Professor Wadhams says plainly “Our time is running out.” He says, to the point, that the leaders of the world and the CEOs have only done a little here (a token) but he says that we needed something like a Manhattan project which is really too late. We needed a comprehensive global project to make major changes but no one was interested.
He said that if we did that now it would be already be too late, unless you had the best to work with and the resources to make it work but not as it should (major damages and casualties would happen).
Wadhams said that the only person doing anything about this threat to the people of planet earth is the Pope.
Wadhams blamed the failure on the leaders of nations, the CEOs of the world. There was no global plan. He realized that it is already much too late to do anything. Except, perhaps a rapid plan put together for a year, something that might help.
Other than that, there never was a plan for saving the planet. Another project could have been there but there wasn’t anyone listening.

“The Arctic is warming faster than anyone else on the planet,” climate change scientist James Hansen has said. “There are potential irreversible effects of melting the Arctic. If it begins to allow the Arctic to warm up, and warm the ocean floor, then we’ll begin to release methane hydrates. And if we let that happen, that is a potential tipping point that we don’t want to happen. If we burn all the fossil fuels then we certainly will cause the methane hydrates, eventually, to come out and cause several degrees more warming, and it’s not clear that civilization could survive that extreme climate change.”
Someone would have to of started this project, perhaps 30 years ago to have a chance to stop the rise in the earth’s temperature. But there was no interest in saving the planet then, and no one is still not interested now. But- it’s too late now.
