Apocalypse Now: Global Warming

Vast quantities of Antarctic ice are collapsing into the sea, something that scientists are fearful is signalling the early stages of unstoppable disintegration.

With the Arctic permafrost melting, the crypt known as the Doomsday Vault, built to preserve humanity’s food sources after/during an apocalyptic/disaster situation, has flooded.

Doomsday is every day to those 200 species that go extinct daily, thanks to this culture.

The apocalypse is now. It isn’t God, invaders from Mars, zombies, galactic alignment, geomagnetic reversal, or even Donald Trump. It’s dehabitation, development, mass extinction, oil culture, agriculture, global warming and more. It’s the ecological collapse we are living through.

Wishful thinking, positivity and green-tech isn’t going to stop what is already happening, or work as long term “sustainable” solutions.

Oceans Are Warming 13% Faster Than Previously Thought

According to research published by Science Advances, the worlds oceans are warming 13% faster than stated by previous estimates.

In a press release, the research team had this to say –

The oceans are affecting weather and climate through more intense rains. This process is a major reason why 2016 was the hottest year ever recorded at the Earth’s surface, beating out 2015 which was the previous record. Additionally 2015 was a year with record hurricanes, heat waves, droughts, and wild-fires around the world.”

Ocean warming is already directly affecting bird and fish populations across the globe. Ocean warming is responsible for the drastic decline in the ocean’s phytoplankton, which will only worsen with the continuing rises in temperatures. And the way in which it is affecting weather systems across the planet is a disaster for the biosphere.
