What we know?
Life in our oceans will be unrecoverable, 10 years from now. The 3 - 5 °C temperature rise might achieved with the Paris agreement will cause our infrastructures, supply chains, ecosystems, our civilization to collapse. Banks and capitalism are destroying our home. Resentment and anxiety are poisoning our minds. We are drifting, further and further away, from the shores of our nature. To establish a safe harbor, we have to .

Meine Idee zur Klimarettung (basierend auf scribd.com/document/380976864/):

Bäume anpflanzen dauert 50-100 Jahre bevor es wirksam wird. Hanf baut viel schneller Biomasse auf und man kann daraus Öl gewinnen, welches sich für Dieselmotoren eignet, welche wohl noch lange in schweren Fahrzeugen verbaut werden. Das freigesetzte THC auf den Straßen führt zu einer sofortigen Verkehrsberuhigung und Gesamtentspannung in den Ballungszentren, was wieder zu weniger Verkehr usw. sorgt.

Alarming Sonar Results Show Glaciers May Be Melting Faster Than We Expected

Direct measurements reveal a glacier is melting 10 to 100 x quicker than previously thought, with implications for #SeaLevelRise.
Unstable tidewater #glaciers flow into the sea relatively quickly and calve, or spit off #icebergs, often. Although these glaciers tower above the ocean, most of the #melting action happens #beneath the #waterline.
