On the brink...

For a very long time, I have been fascinated with how our vast world works and the threats it faces. For this very reason, Global Warming or Climate Change (as it is now being called) has been a matter of great concern. A lot of species and ecosystems have already collapsed. If nothing is done, the effects would be unavoidable be apparent in about 10-30 years. Time to do some thinking and switch off that extra bulb.

Entire forest types may disappear and northern forests are likely to experience large-scale losses of living trees. Many coastal ecosystems are also at risk, including saltwater marshes, mangroves, wetlands, and coral reefs. Warming shifts current climate zones toward the poles and upward in elevation and species that cannot adapt or move quickly enough can become extinct.
