Antarctica Is Starting To Turn Green

Recommended Posts

 Interesting read. The Algae is a carbon sink but it also absorbs sunlight and leads to less energy reflected back into space.
 

The time to argue with flat-earthers, anti-vaxxers and climate change deniers has passed. We have to act and we have to act now.

Yes, it sounds encouraging that algae is a carbon sink.  But compared to worldwide deforestation, internal combustion and livestock, grown for consumption, the amount of algae in Antarctica is a drop in the bucket.  It could take another 100 years or more of global warming for forests to begin to grow on the southernmost continent.

 

The alarming thing is that Antarctica is warming enough for algae to grow at all.  If global temperatures rise enough that both Antarctica and the High Arctic become habitable, the Earth, between the Tropics of Capricorn And Cancer will become so hot, almost nothing will be able to live there.  And currently temperate areas of the globe will assume tropical conditions.  All these changes would wreak havoc on farming and force widespread movement of populations which would inevitably clash over resources.  Drought, famine and disease would rage through all populations.

By acting now, we could prevent the worst of the above scenario.  It is tragic that Big Businesses like the Fossil Fuels Industries have chosed to bankroll a Right Wing propaganda machine which, among other evils, denies the fact of Global Warming.  The devotion of many Right Wingers to fake news outlets like Fox or OAN, is fanatical.  Their loyalty to those who deceive them is unswerving.  And their allegiance to the Cult of Ignorance, to which they belong, keeps them comfortably blind to unpleasant realities.

 

And yet, as you say "WE HAVE TO ACT NOW"  no matter the opposition.  Everything depends on it.

  • Hey kfools.. does this help? 


  • By Vegas

    Liberals are going to hell.


  • grgle



  • Where’s at @slideman?


  • Hola


  • I know this one, this new chat thing. I've seen it called the "shoutbox" among other things in my past. Very hard to hide from the chat box. The question is asked, there's no time to go search what other folks think, this is real time. Only seconds should be between chat box replies. This one is made for me. In the chat box one has to be quick on their feet with stuff at the ready. This chat box is the worst nightmare of anyone trying to deal with ol' teach.

    hey @teacher that sounds like too much work for me LOL I need that useless thing called *time* in order to authenticate facts and truths which get posted by deceitful Dems


  • What does the red number refer to? currently, on my screen it says 2

     


  • Where does it say 2?


  • So. In the chat....if you tag a member the text afterwards should be a private message. 


  • How do? I'm teacher. If I'm online and the powers that be can figure out how to make it immediately apparent to me that whatever I've said here has been replied to I'm gonna show up right quick and kick some teeth in. It's the chat box, all this is new and scary. I know this gig. This starts now. 



  • Hey kfools, did you lose your securtiy cert? On my browser it is saying your site is not secure?


  • Mine too. I'm looking into it.


  • Mine too. 


  • I thought it was my location.. 


  • Just gave to renew the security cert. No big deal I'll do it tonight


  • OK thanks

     



  • Happy Anniversary, America... on your Civil Union.

    Scroll the other way for a while and you'll see me saying that these days the chat box ain't gonna work as one has to be quick on one's feet. The question is posed, there ain't no stinkin time for ya'll to refer to your betters for the answer, ya'll don't understand these things, this political debate, ya'll don't have the answer at hand, ya'll haven't thought this through, ya'll ain't ready for the next question I'll ask,  ya'll can't handle the pace that a bloke such as I can bring it in the chat box, ya'll can't handle this format.

     

    This one is made for me.
