Deny this?


YouTube: What Would Happen If All Ice On Earth Melted?

... Regardless of who is to blame, whether the planet is just going through a natural phase in its evolution, or if we are responsible, the evidence shows that the planet is getting warmer and warmer every year. But just how much of the planet could end up covered in water if all the glacial ice melted?



That gives a very good summary and animation of the consequences and why for what is happening now...

Regardless of your beliefs, that should make for compelling viewing.

...

Troubling indeed and a bad surprise!

At those rates, we are no longer talking of "geologic" timescales of thousands of years...

This is happening now and the consequences are being felt now and the new consequences from what is seen in that report show that we have the new consequences adding up to big changes in the coming immediate years.

One thousand years? Nope. We are now talking mere years and months.


Indeed the new description really is that of a "Climate Emergency".

Startlingly, there is also this recent picture:


Greenland’s ‘unusual’ melting sea ice captured in stunning image

With their sled in tow, a pack of dogs trudge towards a distant mountain range in north-west Greenland.

The stunning picture may seem typical enough of the Danish territory. What's beneath their feet - a shallow pool of crystal-blue water - is anything but.

Last week, however, temperatures soared well above normal levels in Greenland, causing about half of its ice sheet surface to experience melting.

And the sea ice around the territory is, of course, also feeling this heat...

... "It's very unusual to have this much melt so early in the season,"...




Special note: Ice and snow reflect the sun's heat. Water instead absorbs nearly all that heat...

A high of 17.3 deg C (63 degrees Fahrenheit) in that area is scary!


Deny that?!

That picture was taken June 13 this year before the heatwave some weeks ago.
Now it's probably open sea and you need boats instead of huskies.

Is this an example of the reality of denial?

Or is this the reality of blatant corruption polluting our planet to an untimely Hell?


Greta Thunberg: Why are young climate activists facing so much hate?

From the first protest by a single student, the school climate strike movement has been a lightning rod for criticism. Greta Thunberg, the Swedish teenager who inspired the now-global movement, has become a primary target. On Wednesday, the 16-year-old arrived in New York after completing her voyage across the Atlantic aboard an environmentally friendly yacht.

She faced a barrage of attacks on the way...

... Ms Thunberg is not the only eco-activist under fire, though. Four young climate campaigners told the BBC of the abuse they have been subjected to...

Thanks for that...

"Amazon fires are not exactly burning 'Earth's lungs,'..."

That's quite a propaganda piece that deliberately completely ignores the carbon dioxide and carbon soot that is being released on a vast scale. Also ignored are all the other adverse effects.


Hopefully the clearer truth will prevail.

Or is the USA so hopelessly uneducated?

Two small steps against corrupt greed destroying an important part of our only one planet:


Amazon fires: Seven countries sign forest protection pact

Seven South American countries have agreed measures to protect the Amazon river basin, amid global concern over massive fires in the world's largest tropical forest. Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Peru and Suriname signed a pact, setting up a disaster response network and satellite monitoring.

At a summit in Colombia, they also agreed to work on reforestation.

More than 80,000 fires have broken out in the Amazon rainforest this year.

"This meeting will live on as a co-ordination mechanism for the presidents that share this treasure - the Amazon," said Colombian Presiden Iván Duque, who hosted the summit in the city of Leticia. Meanwhile, Peruvian President Martín Vizcarra said: "Goodwill alone is not enough anymore."

The seven nations also agreed to put more efforts into education and increase the role of indigenous communities...

... Meanwhile, Brazil's leading meat export industry group and agricultural businesses have joined an environmental campaign calling for an end to deforestation in public lands in the Amazon and demanding government action.

Several international retailers have said they are suspending purchases of Brazilian leather because of the links between cattle ranching and the fires devastating parts of the Amazon rainforest.

Consider the source, don't be dull.
The Heartland Institute is an American conservative and libertarian public policy think tank founded in 1984 and based in Arlington Heights, Illinois. The Institute conducts work on issues including education reform, government spending, taxation, healthcare, tobacco policy, global warming, hydraulic fracturing, information technology, and free-market environmentalism.

In the 1990s, the Heartland Institute worked with the tobacco company Philip Morris to attempt to discredit the health risks of secondhand smoke and to lobby against smoking bans.[3][4]:233–34[5] Since the 2000s, the Heartland Institute has been a leading promoter of climate change denial.[6][7] It rejects the scientific consensus on climate change,[8] and says that policies to fight it would be damaging to the economy
