Effects of Arctic Amplification Being Ignored
Today is designated as National Weather Person Day. I don't know, but on my local station I never hear anything but the same terminology that has been used for decades even though scientists have conceded that extreme changes are taking place in our climate that are now controlling our weather to the point of loss of agriculture, water access and life. How can those who continue to keep the masses in the dark about a grave danger to our future and present be respected? How can we continue to sit silently as if nothing is wrong while these people who are now more celebrity on the whole than scientist continue to do the business of their fossil fuel sponsors?
Anyone with half a brain and two eyes can see the severe and extreme climate change we have set upon the world. The video above with Dr. Jennifer Francis relays the reasoning behind Arctic Amplification and explains why we have been seeing these extremes and blocks in relation to rapidly melting Arctic ice that has already been tied and correlated to human excess, consumption and fossil fuel burning. The globe is now either in excessive heat, cold, drought or flood. Many areas no longer have four distinct seasons, only hot and cold. You know it, I know, they know it. Yet we continue to sit here waiting for the UN to do what exactly? How are people supposed to react enmasse when those who need to tell this truth will not and those who do are marginalized?
Thankfully, many of us who are not rich, or politicos, or tied to mega NGOS that hide behind politicians for their own benefit are not giving up. You want truth? You will find it on small blogs like this and reports by those who have more appreciation for truth than ratings.
