How we delude ourselves with suburban development, rail trails, NBN towers, whale watching, and community gardens.
Enormous plumes of methane are accumulating in the northern hemisphere and feeding heat increasingly into the arctic methane clathrate deposits. These sublimating deposits contain carbon equivalent to thirty times that which humanity has released since the start of the Industrial Revolution.
This implies that in one or more decades we are facing a global heat pulse estimated between five and sixteen degrees, resulting in the complete collapse of the human food chain and habitat. This is your impending death by starvation and is the real issue that every mind in our region should be focused on.
Those supporting the coal industry and sabotaging renewable energy and taking climate change off the G20 meeting agenda must be stripped of power and brought to justice on the charge of genocide or ecocide.
