Hurricane Severity Due to Climate Change reports: "Global warming, and not natural variations in ocean temperature, provided most of the fuel for last year's unusually strong hurricane season, scientists said this week."

It is likely to get worse rapidly. We seem to be entering a period of accelerating heating due to feedback cycles that may not be stoppable even if we were able to radically reduce CO2 emissions today. Even if we cannot stop disastrous consequences any longer, the severity of the problem is still in play. Any further delays in this issue gaining major traction as a global emergency will have dire repercussions that are beyond our ability to imagine.

Right now on Bonny Island, we are having rains and the weather is quite cold.

God bless.

Melting artic ice causes salinity changes in the ocean which interrupt certain ocean currents, and it is true that parts of Europe and perhaps even parts of Africa could see drastic *drops* in temperature. I think people don't "get" the climate change problem because they just think, "Oh, do I really mind if it's a little warmer?" Unfortunately, we are going to see major weather disruptions and mass-scale destruction of nature that are likely to be wildly unpleasant.
