We are in the middle of a climate crisis, brought about by the over exploitation of the planet, and burning of fossil fuels to drive economic growth that is not sustainable.

 

The culprits are coal, gas and oil companies, bolstered by subsidies that are designed to ensure that clean renewable energy cannot compete on a level playing field.

 

China, India, Russia and the USA are all reliant on coal and oil and plan to continue using these fuels, rather than phasing them out in timely fashion, to meet the crisis head on with some kind of braking effect.

Climate Change is linked to air pollution from greenhouse gases. A large share of air pollution is caused by combustion of fossil fuels such as coal and oil that is linked to lung cancer, among other ailments that cost our health services a fortune in treatment.

It stands to reason that the reduction of these fuels can reduce air pollution drastically - and climate change. Most effective in any reduction strategy, is the switch to clean power sources such as wind power, solar power, hydro power which don't cause air pollution. Efforts to reduce pollution from mobile sources includes expanding regulation to new sources (such as cruise and transport ships, farm equipment, and small gas-powered equipment such as string trimmers, chainsaws, and snowmobiles), increased fuel efficiency (such as through the use of hybrid vehicles), conversion to cleaner fuels, and conversion to electric vehicles.

A very effective means to reduce air pollution is the transition to renewable energy. According to a study published in Energy and Environmental Science in 2015 the switch to 100% renewable energy in the United States would eliminate about 62,000 premature mortalities per year and about 42,000 in 2050, if no biomass were used. This would save about $600 billion in health costs a year due to reduced air pollution in 2050, or about 3.6% of the 2014 U.S. gross domestic product. Air quality improvement is a near-term benefit among the many societal benefits from climate change mitigation.

Climate change occurs when changes in Earth's climate system result in new weather patterns that last for at least a few decades, and maybe for millions of years. The climate system is comprised of five interacting parts, the atmosphere (air), hydrosphere (water), cryosphere (ice and permafrost), biosphere (living things), and lithosphere (earth's crust and upper mantle).

The climate system receives nearly all of its energy from the sun, with a relatively tiny amount from earth's interior. The climate system also gives off energy to outer space. The balance of incoming and outgoing energy, and the passage of the energy through the climate system, determines Earth's energy budget.

The IPCC's Report from August 2021, put us at Code Red. The writing was on the wall in 2018, but world leaders carried on; business as usual. it looks very much as if in 2024 it will be the same story. By then we'll be lucky to have any ice in the Arctic. The same for polar bears.

As the food dries up, and becomes more expensive, your savings will be reduced in value yet again. The good news is that if we look at the growing population as livestock, we will have a massive protein store to call on. Apparently, humans taste like pork and veal. The proof of which was Sweeney Todd's famous meat pies in Fleet Street, London. As it is the politicians that are taking us to the brink, they are the prime candidates. After all, they got fat on your savings. So why not give a little back to society. Hannibal Lecter had a point. Lying to us, makes them "Free Range Rude," if you fancy having an old friend for dinner.

 

 

 

 

 

 

CLIMATE CHANGE

 

Is causing desertification, creating deserts from good agricultural land, melting our ice caps and causing rising ocean levels.

THE GOLD STANDARD - Food should be the new Gold Standard. Planet earth can only grow so much grain and vegetables, produce so many fish and trees, and support so much livestock, sustainably. This should be the new currency upon which the world trades. With paper money that is actually worth something when the chips are down.

 

 

 

 

TOXIC OCEAN PLASTIC

 

Potentially more dangerous in terms of ocean conservation and long term food security than acid oceans, is plastic in its many forms is invading marine life, to include seabirds, fish and marine mammals. Some shellfish beds are already too dangerous to use for human consumption.

 

Human health is at risk from carcinogens, with men potentially becoming sterile, like some whales. Mothers too are at risk from seafood toxins, and their babies.
