Climate change translates into rising seas, stronger storms and this results into vanishing coastlines. The Iles-De-La-Madeleine island in Quebec has been warmed at twice the world average at 2.3 degrees celsius since the 19th century. What we are experiencing on this island will happen all around us. To claim that we have been warned since 1970 and dooms day has not arrived, simply demonstrates and uneducated opinion.
Saltwater is killing off woodlands all along the mid-Atlantic coast, sometimes surprisingly far from the sea. This is all a consequence of melting ice and rising sea waters. Climate change effects will cascade and men will not be able to cope. It will cost way more than what we have to do now to reverse the trend. This report here is talking about areas on NY, NJ, Delaware, Maryland, North Carolina, close to home!
We are breaking the natural cycle of earth by burning fossil fuels that formed over 600 million years in a short time. Extinction is a certainty if we continue on this path. We need to turn away from industrialized farming to survive. We need structural change.
Rapid and massive flooding of urban areas will only get worse with Climate Change. Houston is a prime example. The passed new building codes and budgeted billions for flood control in 2017. Tropical storm Imelda which hit 2 weeks ago shows that their efforts have not helped much. Houston has experienced one 500 year flood and 2 one hundred year flood since 2016. The cost of inaction or slow action will be much more. We need structural change.
People have always migrated because of necessity. With Climate change millions of people will be displaced. War in Syria was caused by the consequence of climate change. Much of the migration to the US is due to climate change. Climate change consequences will snow ball if we don't address it.
