Energy Pollution's Impact On Our Environment


Precarious

A grounded bird
Perched feet from sheer faces,
Freefalls and deadly drops
Flying on jutted thrusts of rock
I suddenly feel boreal
And pseudo-alpine.

The wind rustles steadily
In lower reaches of this chasm,
this monstrous ravine.
Clouds puff and duplicate
In the sun's constant spread.

Mountains engage the eye
From every dimension
Beyond the third
Into a timeless fourth.
Time eased away
In the day's anxiousness.
Next is annexed to now
You are the impermanence of moment.


Ned Green wrote this beautiful poem on the Appalachian Trail in his Journal in 1997.
On February 18, 2001, at only 26, doing what he loved most, climbing, his support on an
ice ledge gave way where he fell into a deep chasm on Mt. Washington, New Hampshire.



HUMAN-CO2-CHEMICAL IMPACT ON ENVIRONMENT

Information on humankind's impact on Global Climate Change first began to be posted on Flyby News on 22 February, 2002, beginning with an article about widespread environmental change in the Arctic. It has always made sense to lessen the amount of greenhouse gas emissions, especially Carbon, into our atmosphere. And to maintain the lungs of Earth, forests, and places for carbon sinks and air purification. The New World Disorder or the military industrial complex empire had another agenda in lock step with fascist fear, control of the elite over the masses. It is the blind leading the blind. We hope raising awareness for life's survival in the 21st Century for a big turnaround. Becoming more aware is a critical step regardless of outcome. Our integrity, our humanity is at risk.


In summer 2000, an international team of scientists led by Serreze
released results of a study documenting widespread
environmental changes over the Arctic.

Scientists Say Polar Warming Continues With Ice Mass Losses

News Flash! ! !

This came in 20 March 2002 on the vernal equinox:

An Antarctic ice shelf that was 200 metres thick
and had a surface area of 3,250 square kilometres
has broken apart in less than a month.


"We knew what was left would collapse eventually,
but the speed of it is staggering,"

-- Dr David Vaughan
Glaciologist at the Bas in Cambridge.

"[It is hard] to believe that 500 billion tonnes of
ice sheet has disintegrated in less than a month."

The Day After Tomorrow?

The present state of the 'ocean conveyor belt' that transfers
warm, less salty water from the Pacific to the Atlantic as a
shallow current, and returns cold, more salty water from the
Atlantic to the Pacific as a deep current flowing further
south. This flow is threatened by melting ice in the
Arctic, and disruptions off the Antarctic coast.

See following link for a photo and more on this critical concern!
Ocean Forces Threaten Our Climate

UPDATED - August, 2008:
Scientists Astounded by Speed of Deep Freeze
It's one of the most dramatic examples of climate change in Earth's history,
and scientists now say it happened almost entirely in one year's time.

Climate chill came exactly 12,679 years ago: study
The study, of pollens, minerals and other matter deposited in annual
layers at the bottom of Lake Meerfelder Maar in Germany, pinpointed an
abrupt change in sediments consistent with a sudden chill over just one year.


The world's largest frozen peat bog
is thawing for the first time in 11,000 years
(since it was formed at the end of the last ice age).
This bog in western Siberia, the size of France and Germany
combined, could release "billions of tonnes of greenhouse gas."

the most alarming manifestations of climate change to date -
suggest that the ice cap is melting far more rapidly than scientists
had thought, with immense consequences for civilisation and the planet.

Study: "Antarctic Glaciers Melting Faster"

Glaciers once held up by a floating ice shelf off Antarctica
are now sliding off into the sea -- and they are going fast,
scientists said on Tuesday.

Two separate studies from climate researchers and the space agency
NASA show the glaciers are flowing into Antarctica's Weddell Sea,
freed by the 2002 breakup of the Larsen B ice shelf.

Writing in the journal Geophysical Research Letters,
the researchers said their satellite measurements suggest
climate warming can lead to rapid sea level rise.

-- Washington - Feb 14, 2002 --

The Arctic ice cap is shrinking that much is known with certainty.
Over the past century, the extent of the winter pack ice in the
Nordic Seas has decreased by about 25%. Last winter the Bering
Sea was effectively ice-free, which is unprecedented, and if
this big melt continues, some say the formerly ice-locked
Arctic will have open sea lanes as soon as 2015.

By 2050, the summertime ice cap could disappear entirely.

Disaster at sea: global warming hits UK birds
By Michael McCarthy Environment Editor

Disaster at sea: global warming hits UK birds
Leading article: A disaster that should serve as a global warning

Hundreds of thousands of Scottish seabirds have failed to breed this summer in a wildlife catastrophe which is being linked by scientists directly to global warming.

The massive unprecedented collapse of nesting attempts by several seabird species in Orkney and Shetland is likely to prove the first major impact of climate change on Britain.

In what could be a sub-plot from the recent disaster movie, The Day After Tomorrow, a rise in sea temperature is believed to have led to the mysterious disappearance of a key part of the marine food chain - the sandeel, the small fish whose great teeming shoals have hitherto sustained larger fish, marine mammals and seabirds in their millions.

In Orkney and Shetland, the sandeel stocks have been shrinking for several years, and this summer they have disappeared: the result for seabirds has been mass starvation. The figures for breeding failure, for Shetland in particular, almost defy belief.

More than 172,000 breeding pairs of guillemots were recorded in the islands in the last national census, Seabird 2000, whose results were published this year; this summer the birds have produced almost no young, according to Peter Ellis, Shetland area manager for the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB).

Martin Heubeck of Aberdeen University, who has monitored Shetland seabirds for 30 years, said: "The breeding failure of the guillemots is unprecedented in Europe." More than 6,800 pairs of great skuas were recorded in Shetland in the same census; this year they have produced a handful of chicks - perhaps fewer than 10 - while the arctic skuas (1,120 pairs in the census) have failed to produce any surviving young.

The 24,000 pairs of arctic terns, and the 16,700 pairs of Shetland kittiwakes - small gulls - have "probably suffered complete failure", said Mr Ellis.

In Orkney the picture is very similar, although detailed figures are not yet available. "It looks very bad," said the RSPB's warden on Orkney mainland, Andy Knight. "Very few of the birds have raised any chicks at all."

The counting and monitoring is still going on and the figures are by no means complete: it is likely that puffins, for example, will also have suffered massive breeding failure but because they nest deep in burrows, this is not immediately obvious.

But the astonishing scale of what has taken place is already clear - and the link to climate change is being openly made by scientists. It is believed that the microscopic plankton on which tiny sandeel larvae feed are moving northwards as the sea water warms, leaving the baby fish with nothing to feed on.

This is being seen in the North Sea in particular, where the water temperature has risen by 2C in the past 20 years, and where the whole ecosystem is thought to be undergoing a "regime shift", or a fundamental alteration in the interaction of its component species. "Think of the North Sea as an engine, and plankton as the fuel driving it," said Euan Dunn of the RSPB, one of the world's leading experts on the interaction of fish and seabirds. "The fuel mix has changed so radically in the past 20 years, as a result of climate change, that the whole engine is now spluttering and starting to malfunction. All of the animals in the food web above the plankton, first the sandeels, then the larger fish like cod, and ultimately the seabirds, are starting to be affected."

Research last year clearly showed that the higher the temperature, the less sandeels could maintain their population level, said Dr Dunn. "The young sandeels are simply not surviving."

Although over-fishing of sandeels has caused breeding failures in the past, the present situation could not be blamed on fishing, he said. The Shetland sandeel fishery was catching so few fish that it was closed as a precautionary measure earlier this year. "Climate change is a far more likely explanation."

The spectacular seabird populations of the Northern Isles have a double importance. They are of great value scientifically, holding, for example, the world's biggest populations of great skuas. And they are of enormous value to Orkney and Shetland tourism, being the principal draw for many visitors. The national and international significance of what has happened is only just beginning to dawn on the wider political and scientific community, but some leading figures are already taking it on board.

"This is an incredible event," said Tony Juniper, director of Friends of the Earth. "The catastrophe [of these] seabirds is just a foretaste of what lies ahead.

"It shows that climate change is happening now, [with] devastating consequences here in Britain, and it shows that reducing the pollution causing changes to the earth's climate should now be the global number one political priority."
