► Ocean plankton declines of 1% per year means 50% gone in 70 years, declines of more than 1%/yr are likely.

► Ocean plastic is killing bacteria that make 10% of our oxygen.

► Ocean acidification doubles by 2050, explodes by 2100.

► 30% of Marine Birds gone since 1995.

► 70% of Marine Birds gone since 1950.

► 28% of Land Animals gone since 1970.

► If you are 15 years old, emissions went up 30% in your lifetime.

► If you are 30 years old, emissions went up 60% in your lifetime.

&#9658; After 30 years trying, solar and wind are < 3% of total world energy use.

&#9658; Solar panels produce 90% of power rating 15% of time

&#9658; Wind turbines produce 90% of power rating 25% of time.

&#9658; Claire Fyson said emissions must go down 50% in 10 yrs to avoid 1.5° C.

&#9658; The Insurance Journal said they must go down 50% in 10 yrs to avoid 3.0° C.

&#9658; Stefan Rahmstorf said emissions must go down 100% in 20 yrs to avoid 2.0° C.

&#9658; Hans Schellnhuber said 5 of 13 major hothouse tipping points start below 2.0° C.

&#9658; When these 5 points are triggered, they trigger the other 8.

&#9658; This results in runaway hothouse, which can't be stopped or reversed once started.

&#9658; But we are also headed for runaway mass extinction, which can't be stopped or reversed once started.

&#9658; 10,000 years ago humans and livestock were 0.03% of land vertebrate biomass.

&#9658; Today humans and livestock are 98% of land vertebrate biomass.

&#9658; Human/livestock food production caused 80% of land vertebrate species extinctions.

&#9658; Petrochemical use grows 7X faster than human population.

Reality is what it is. Excellent post.



The Lord hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil. Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished. Pr, 16:4-5
Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life. Pr. 13:12
