    Imagine that happening anywhere else...

    Quote from article:

    Bumblebee populations have declined by 90 percent in the past 20 years, according to Environment America. There are many different factors contributing to their decline, including the use of pesticides and urban development. However, climate change is perhaps the biggest factor.

    The decline of the bumblebees is highly concerning as they are vital for ecosystems. They pollinate flowers and crops. If populations were to continue to decline, crops would not be able to produce fruits and vegetables. Despite being small, they are crucial to nature's delicate balance.

    This is scary - we doing next to sweet FA at the moment.
    If humanity is going to get throught this we need some monumental effort not a few more electric cars

    World’s top climate scientists expect global heating to blast past 1.5C target

    Hundreds of the world’s leading climate scientists expect global temperatures to rise to at least 2.5C (4.5F) this century, blasting past internationally agreed targets and causing catastrophic consequences for humanity and the planet, an exclusive Guardian survey has revealed.

    Almost 80% of the respondents, all from the authoritative Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), foresee at least 2.5C of global heating above preindustrial levels, while almost half anticipate at least 3C (5.4F). Only 6% thought the internationally agreed 1.5C (2.7F) limit will be met....

    The main road, next to where we live is being heightened because with the rising sea levels it would be submerged with each spring tide within 10 years.

    Ah Garuda sad news, it's going to effect coast lines everywhere.

    This is pretty astounding. The temperature rise is going exponential. There's still no real plan to replace gas/oil burners in the UK. It's crazy governments don't want to face this they're too afraid the policies they'd have to implement would be unpopular?!?
    It's more serious than that

    'Global temperatures last month were the highest ever recorded for the month of April, making this the 11th month in a row to set a record, according to the European Union?s Copernicus Climate Change Service.'

    Quote from article

    PFAS are a class of 15,000 chemicals used across dozens of industries to make products resistant to water, stains and heat. The chemicals are linked to cancer, kidney disease, birth defects, decreased immunity, liver problems and a range of other serious diseases.

    They are dubbed "forever chemicals" because they do not naturally break down and are highly mobile once in the environment, so they continuously move through the ground, water and air. PFAS have been detected in all corners of the globe, from penguin eggs in Antarctica to polar bears in the Arctic.

    I may have mentioned this before. Durban in South Africa is one of the cities that is already feeling the effects. The waves at spring tides are higher than they used to be, and areas stream upwards from the river deltas and estuaries are being evacuated, because they systematically get flooded. Even where we live, a beach project for an apartment building with some shops on the ground floor was abandoned because it is no longer considered safe to build that close to the shoreline.

    And then there's the extreme weather, causing floods and severe damage to infrastructure. In the previous century, Durban experienced half a dozen incidents over a century. Now, we've had 6 in the last 5 years.

    Some places are experiencing early effects of Climate Change more than other places. In the near future, almost everywhere will experience the effects of Climate Change. As a species, humanity isn't preparing for what is about to happen.
