Part 4: A Gathering Storm

Hello ... is anybody listening

While most all scientists and environmentalists now list global climate change as perhaps the most important issue facing the world today, the general public seems to regard the subject as tedious. Try to point this out to anyone who brings up the topic of weather and complains  ... "how hot, how rainy, how cold" it might be ... mention that it is all part of very serious climate change that is taking place worldwide and odds are they will give you a blank stare and either change the subject or simply walk away.

The Gallup Organization reported in April of this year, for example, that the public is, in effect, practically dozing on the issue. When compared to earlier poll results, this is down from finding it a bit of a yawn a year earlier.

Pure and simple, climate change has a public relations problem.

How then does one sell the public on the importance of climate change? According to  National Center for Atmospheric Research senior scientist Michael Glantz, "It requires us to search for the dread factor." Glantz says that,

"At first, the dread factor is CO2 doubling, didn't catch on, so we went to the West Antarctic ice sheet collapse. Then three degrees (Celsius) increase in (global temperature in) a hundred years. Most people don't know what C is. If you live in Minnesota, it sounds OK -- until you find out that you can't go cross country skiing."

Not to be discouraged, scientists looked for more evidence. Glantz's dread list continues,

"We came up with thermohaline circulation breakdown. Then abrupt climate change on the order of decades. We keep trying to get the hook in, but I don't think these are the arguments that catch people."

The climate change priesthood continues looking for something as attention-getting as the ozone hole. You may recall the international effort to address the depletion of atmospheric ozone. Arguably this can probably be called the most successful environmental effort ever.

In 1985, British researchers reported a massive reduction in ozone concentrations above Antarctica -- an ozone hole.

In 1986 and 1987, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration scientist Susan Solomon established the cause of the depletion was the use of chlorofluorocarbons, the coolant in most air conditioners and the propellant in household spray cans -- the ozone layer was being sacrificed for underarm deodorant and stick-free frying pans.

For what ever reason makes for an attention-getting problem, this seemed to strike a chord in the general public. By May 1989, 36 countries had ratified the Montreal protocol on CFCs, banning them in most of the world and giving the story a happy ending. CFCs are long-lived in the atmosphere -- about 50 years -- but Solomon said she plans to live long enough to see the end of the ozone hole.

The episode showed that when a clear environmental threat is identified and brought home to the public, the response can be strong enough to power coordinated and effective global action. In the case of ozone depletion, the identified threat was fear of a dramatic increase in skin cancer. That apparently was the key in getting people's attention.

The fear of skin cancer got action on ozone depletion, Glantz said. Even though there was no direct proof of this, the fear of it was enough. With global warming, they haven't figured out how to bring it to the individual -- how to make it personal.

Where's a good press agent when you need them

Thus far the climate issue apparently lacks fearsome threats. In the collective mind of the public at large, there is evidently nothing to fear from  a sea level rise, for instance. Hundreds of millions of people worldwide live on the seacoasts in large cities, and millions more farm the fertile coastal deltas. Global sea level has risen at the rate of 1.8 millimeters per year over the last 50 years. That rate likely will increase over the next 100 years to 5 millimeters a year, according to John Church, an oceanographer with Australia's Commonwealth Scientific & Industrial Research Organization's marine research office in Hobart, Tasmania.

Most of this increase comes from thermal expansion of the ocean's waters, but now there are indications the massive Greenland ice sheet is also melting.

Jonathan Overpeck, director of the Institute for the Study of Planet Earth at the University of Arizona in Tucson, points out that it appears from the satellite observations that the ice sheet is melting faster now than it was 10 years ago. He also says that the last time the northern hemisphere was this warm -- 130,000 years ago -- sea level was 3 meters to 6 meters higher (10 feet to 20 feet). This was probably the result of the Greenland ice sheet melting.

"We will be as warm as it was then in about 100 years. We think that it melted then at the rate of meters per century -- not centimeters.

The threat from higher sea level is not so far away as that, though. Rising seas eventually will submerge a lot of coastal areas, but the immediate threat is from more frequent extreme events, as they are called. Even without an increase in storm severity -- a possible, though uncertain, result of climate warming -- the increase in sea level means maximum storm surges will occur more frequently, along with their attendant damages."

A study of data from Australia, for instance, comparing the beginning of the 20th century with the end, shows maximum storm surges now are occurring three times as often.

In other words, what used to be a once-in-100-years storm -- on which many insurance policies are based -- now becomes a one-in-33-years storm.

The problem is even worse in England, where the 100-year storm becomes a once-every-10-years storm, according to studies there. The massive flood barrier installed on the Thames River to protect London from floods has had to be raised 25 times since its completion in 1982.

But as UPI writer Dan Whipple says, "... the slogan, Don't Buy Beachfront Property, does not appear to be one that rallies the populace."

Perhaps disease will get our attention

What about more widespread disease? Rita Colwell, a professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, and former head of the National Science Foundation, said her research has found that cholera outbreaks appear to be related to climate change. Warming temperatures are warming the sea water, creating a fertile breeding ground for cholera bacteria.

Colwell says that she has found a link between climate change and cholera outbreaks in South America and Asia, as well as increases in cholera bacteria populations (though not outbreaks of the disease) in the Chesapeake Bay.

In addition, Colwell indicates that there have also been fears that diseases now largely confined to the tropics -- malaria, dengue fever and others -- will migrate northward with changing climate. However, so far there is little evidence of this and as often the case, some scientists warn about inciting fears, either prematurely or erroneously.

In a paper by the head of Insects and Infectious Disease at the Pasteur Institute in Paris, Dr. Paul Reiter says that,

"... in the case of malaria, at least, this fear is based partly on a necessity to simplify things for public consumption ... it is immoral for political activists to mislead the public by attributing the recent resurgence of these diseases to climate change, particularly in Africa."

In addition, there are other threats that may or may not be associated with long-term changes in climate. You may recall that thousands of people died in France last year from a prolonged heat wave. This is another example of an extreme event that may become more frequent with a warming global climate. The severe floods in Europe also have been blamed on global climate change in some quarters.

Nevertheless, the general populace seems unmoved. Perhaps Mark Twain had it right when he once said, "We all grumble about the weather, but" (dramatic pause) "--but--but nothing is done about it."

How Our Government Will Signal the Arrival of Planet X — Bob Fletcher, Investigator

How Our Government Will Signal the Arrival of Planet X — Bob Fletcher, InvestigatorPeople follow different paths to the truth about Planet X, with an enduring hope that one day, our government will finally disclose what it knows.

Like UFOlogy, the hope is that if you create a pile of pictures high enough, perhaps at some point the truth will reach critical mass and voila-disclosure. Unfortunaetly, just like Marxism, it's one of those inspiring fantasy goals that can never be achieved.

This is why Planet X investigator, Bob Fletcher, producer of the IN-COMMING DVDs, has come at this from an entirely different directions. Bob followed the money and found that more was spent on preparation for Planet X than anyone could imagine. GO

Yowusa.com Planet X
System Update No. 1

This program presents an overview of the Planet X system, how it moves through our solar system and why we always seem to observe it near the Sun and not behind us, plus recent observations of three planets in the Planet X system captured by ocean buoys located in the Gulf of Alaska and the Gulf of Mexico.

 

 

Detailed explanations of the first three Planet X events projected for the tribulation time line are presented: covert visitations, deep impact, and the perihelion alignment of the Planet X system as it will be seen from Earth. These projections by the Guides appear in the book, Being In It for the Species The Universe Speaks.
