Part 4: Climate Feedbacks

Unfortunately, as I mentioned in Part 3, the current climate change projections are likely to be too optimistic. They don’t include the positive, or amplifying feedbacks. What this means is that the warming atmosphere and oceans will trigger global processes that will amplify the already existing warming. The only question is when do we reach the point that these start, and quite possibly, whether some of these have already started.

Saving Nemo

If you read my entry on Going Vegan, you might think that you are “safe” eating seafood. Unfortunately this is not so. As much damage we are doing to the atmosphere by burning fossil fuels, we are damaging the oceans even worse.
