AGW: Planet earth is doomed by apathy

For scientific papers on AGW, record happenings in the Arctic and the Greenland, Himalayan and Antarctic icesheets. Also weatherstorms and higher than average rainfalls and other extreme weather events.

AGW: Planet earth is doomed by apathy

The survey below of USA opinions exemplifies the apathy. To Americans, the future is tomorrow, not 2050 or 2100.

That's why the USA will not lead AGW remedial actions.

well lets face it.. their whole economy is based on using and abusing natural resources.

Just like AUSTRALIA.! WE will never lead...in fact we're among the worst.. so focus somewhere closer to home. .

Exactly, Australians iare the same... the people lead and we are all asleep at the wheel!

Too busy watching the same ol' movie about some bloke with a car and a girl pretending their collective shite don't stink.

Ocean dead zones of zero oxygen seawater are increasing in size and likely to accelerate the rate of increase with AGW.

Every aspect of the environment is trending negative. Human extinction will occur.

... What causes dead zones?
Dead zones can occur naturally, but also grow as a result of excessive nutrient pollution from human activities, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration explains. Many chemical, physical and biological factors combine to create dead zones, but nutrient pollutions are the primary culprit. Nitrogen and phosphorus in fertilizers run into the water, and then act as nutrients which fertilize algae.

The algae eventually dies and decomposes in the water. This then feeds bacteria which consume oxygen around them, depleting the supply. Climate change has exacerbated the issue, as warmer waters contain less oxygen.

The Gulf of Mexico is home one of the largest dead zones, which occurs each spring when farmers fertilize their land and the rain washes the fertilizer into rivers and into the sea. An area in the Baltic Sea is another large dead zone.

Why are dead zones bad?
Dead zones are “a real environmental problem, with dire consequences for humans too who rely on the oceans for food and employment.” Guete said.

More worryingly, dead zones produce nitrous oxide, which is more damaging to the environment than carbon dioxide.

Scientists warn that computer simulations of ocean oxygen reveal levels will decrease over the next 100 years, with oxygen minimum zones growing. The next step for researchers is further study to determine all of the contributing causes of the increasing dead zone. ...

Another dead area that is growing is in the Red Sea.

We are REALLY shitting in our own nest!
Abbott & Co are going to cause the mother and father of all recessions—be prepared!

sadly, we are all preaching to the converted. It is OUR GOVERNMENT which must be called to account.
