Scientists Warning — Update
Stuart is currently ‘sheltering in place’ at home in Hawaii. Although he had originally planned to travel to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota this month, he will be staying in Hawaii for further tests and treatment.
Please note that we are sending our weekly newsletter out at a new time aiming to have it arrive in your inbox on Tuesday evening.
Lest we forget in the face of the Coronavirus pandemic, climate change is still happening, and accelerating. It’s been predicted for many years that increased occurrence and rapid spread of pandemics would be one of the many results of climate change. This one may not have been that, but it’s a taste of things to come.
We are being given a ‘wake-up call’. Will we hear it? Will we heed it? Ordinary people seem to be ‘getting it’, but governments, and their primary clients (banks and large corporations) are trying to get us back to Business As Usual, with its destructive ‘growth economic’ system that was put in place by bankers a century ago, and still is manipulated to benefit the wealthy at the expense of the Earth and human survival.
Worth a watch and a share. We thank the PBS News Hour for their allowing us to republish this report on our Youtube channel for the common welfare of all.
The current pandemic has not stopped climate change, though it has completely eclipsed the long term threat with a short term but significant one.
