We get asked a lot: What is the face of a changing climate. What are some of the ramifications? Do we know much about the potential economic impact?
Well, here's part of the face. A good follow up to our radio interview last week with a scientist who has been out in the Arctic across US, Russian and Canadian terrain. His report was filled with evidence of communities collapsing in a heap as the permafrost thaws below them.
No argues, no one credible, the Earth is warming. No one disputes the raw measured data on high carbon levels and other atmospheric changes. Yes, there is lots of health debate on causes of global warming. Lots of healthy debates on possible fixes. And, hopefully, no debate on the urgency, as seen here. of the need to put our environment back in balance.
Juneau has no plan, little money for erosion or thawing permafrost
