Mass plant and animal extinction a risk, coral reefs could already be doomed

A scientific panel has called for the creation of an early ecological warning system after finding that global warming threatens a polar sea ice collapse, vast dead zones in the ocean and mass plant and animal extinction, possibly having a dire impact on human life.

A report released on Tuesday by the the U.S. National Research Council warns the abrupt effects of climate change will continue and that society needs to be better prepared, the New York Times reports.

Among drastic changes that have already occurred, they noted the disappearance of cold winter nights in the American West and Canada, which has allowed beetles to devour tens of millions of forest acres.

Previous fears such as a sudden belch of methane from the ocean were dismissed for the foreseeable future, but the panel stated that the world’s coral reefs may be doomed in a matter of just decades.

What a great idea! Let's see how much money we can blow on this nonsensical warning system! Are we going to get a color code like blue is mild, yellow is warm and red is HOT? I hope so, because somebody needs to keep the world abreast of those fractional temperature changes as they occur in real time over the course of the next century.

THE WHOLE EARTH AT ONE TIME HAD A UNIFORM TEMPERATURE AND CLIMATE

The Bible in Genesis 1:6 teaches that there was water above the sky. This condition doesn’t exist today because that water fell upon the earth during the great Noahic flood.

The water above the sky would have had a greenhouse effect so that the temperature around the globe would have been uniform and tropical, even at the North and South poles.

During the time of the Genesis flood, the Bible describes that the water above the sky fell and great amounts of water from under the earth broke through the surface. The violent combination of these forces produced the fossil layers and great canyons.

Because there was no longer the thermal protection from waters that existed above the sky, the Polar Regions became instantly frozen. There are frozen mammoths discovered with undigested food still in their stomachs. Obviously, these great creatures were frozen instantly.

@BabuG.Ranganathan The universe was created in 1964.  If you think you remember 1963, those are false memories placed in your brain by God to test your faith.

@ViableOp Meanwhile fish population is declining because the ocean water is getting too cold.

@ViableOp   It isn't "the world" which is "looking to feed more and more mouths."

It's the human occupants of the world.  We - our proliferation - are the problem, and we have a good part of the solution available to us: contraception.  Cut the demand, cut the pollution and slow the changes.
 

"The world" is indifferent to our notions, and we may find this out the hard way.  That said, I live in SW Pennsylvania.  This past summer, for the first time ever, I had kudzu here. Kudzu, you know, "the vine that ate the South?"  The dog ticks were much worse than usual, and I hear that Lone Star ticks are working their way north.    We are going to live in interesting times.
