Climate Change? – Time to Get Serious

Posted on: November 26, 2009


Population growth is the total problem. A problem of consumption of food and water resources to sustain it. Population growth interferes with the natural order of things. If the situation is bad now with rising temperatures interfering with plant biology then another 2.8 billion souls by 2040 (U.N.figures), will add a huge impact to the environmental problems already known that are the basis of Copenhagen.

The current climate debates will deal with the obvious but- ultimately the capacity to produce enough food must be addressed. While the present situation appears grim, we have to live with our evolution but there is a larger dimension – the melting of the ice caps and the rising sea levels.

It is predicted that the North Polar regions will be clear of sheet ice within 30 years,and then start to freeze again ( NASA Satellite Imagery) In that event, a high tide surge of 1.2 meters with rising sea levels is the subject of much deliberation for the low lying Pacific island nations as it will be for the Mayor of Glenelg and trigger the dilemma of a population shift to higher ground.
