The Pacific Ocean is dying- From the ground up the entire food chain is collapsing.
The problem, the research team reported, is that under some circumstances, the sampler can fail to shift from its low sensor to high one, giving false low readings even when concentrations reached potentially explosive levels. For example, the researchers discovered that in methane concentrations as high as 73 percent, two Bacharach Hi-Flow samplers both failed, reporting that levels were between 1 and 6 percent.
Some days, when I do SR by the time I am through I just feel that with the level of stupidity and greed that pervades our culture we don’t deserve to survive, and probably won’t. This is one of those stories.
One aspect of climate change that people are simply not fully comprehending is the massive changes in the natural environment that are going to come with it. This report about California is just one example of what I mean. The massive restructuring of natural systems is going to be very challenging to our civilization.
It isn’t just trees. Climate change is going to disrupt the food system, which is going to disrupt us in significant ways. Once again I urge you to grow food and encourage and facilitate local food production. Communities that do that will have an easier time going through this inevitable transition. And that is the reality. This restructuring is going to happen, because climate change is already happening, as this report and the tree story make clear.
