Climate Change: The urgency is now!

Summary: – Reasons why humanity should fight climate change now. Our posterity may not be able to grasp its fury in the decades or in a century from now:

As the world urbanizes and effects of climate change intensify, environmental crises will increasingly devastate the livelihoods of people around the globe of which the poorest livelihoods are most affected.

Disaster relief spending of the U.S. government is one indicator of the consequences of such changes. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) reports that from 1980 to 1989, two to three billion-dollar disaster events occurred each year. That number has risen nine to ten since 2010, quadrupling disaster relief costs in the past 35 years.

During the recent Harvey relief disaster to Houston on August 29, 2017, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said he thinks the state will need “far in excess” of $125 billion in federal relief dollars. Houston Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee called for a record-breaking $150 billion aid package on CNN.

This expenditure far outstrips arguments of whether climate change is a theory when these explosive annual expenditures rising annually are proving otherwise.

  • A catalyzing effect will automatically be from the inexorable rise in explosive global populations. The population clock of December 15, 2017, states that 7.6 billion people live in the world today. In 2025, USA Today and U.N. project it. World Organization to be 8.1 billion.

The cost of climate change to the world’s economies, including the United States, keeps sky rocketing annually and time is running out with inaction. 2017 World Bank Report released shows that of the 233 countries in the world, 138 are low to middle- income countries while the remaining 95, that is 40 percent of the world’s population, has high-income status. This means your generosity is needed to help donate a number of my books for the global awareness programs, methods and recommendations I present to readers. Purchasing a set of the series in 4-Volumes and donating it to your nearby library facilitates the reach of information to the public, whose education is key to fighting climate change.

Remember that for each low or middle-income country in the world, a higher percentage of its population

is poor. The United States is the world’s strongest economy, yet over 45 million of the 230 million live below the poverty line.

Imagine the low-income countries whose governments cannot afford to provide their citizens with welfare systems hit by extreme weather events.

The December 2017 hurricane devastation of Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Cuba and Haiti, with more than a thousand dead in Puerto Rico and many unable to get back on their feet, should be a constant reminder. 

***A final school of thought for all readers: Geography should teach us that the world i surrounded with almost 69 to 70 % of oceans. The planet Earth we call home is only 30% land-surface covered while 69% is ocean covered. Any aggressive turbulence from the oceans in the form of extreme weather events can make the smallish Earth be overwhelmed with economic and psychological uncertainty. In short, we cannot allow climate change’s impact pin-us until humanity cannot react anymore.  A teacher is academically genius to present his knowledge skills to readers and his students, however, he is deficient with the financial resources other people are endowed with to help disseminate the information he presents. ——Andreas Gboloo, February 2018      

  • As populations rise and forests shrink, the planet’s climatic balance tips dangerously towards extreme weather events causing what high frequency of Hurricane Storm 4 and 5 will cost and create calamities like humanity has never seen before. Forests store global carbon. Global forests currently store 300 billion metric tons of carbon while global climate change by human activity emits around 40 billion metric tons of carbon. Desert and degraded land restoration, including plantation and tree planting in the about 195 countries, will be key if education and awareness gets to lawmakers and the public with informative dissemination strategies the series presents. Be aware that research from the series unveils that 38 countries of the 233 countries and territories in the world control about 84% of global forests while the remaining 195 control less than 16% of global forests.

 Education and awareness through informative dissemination strategies is key to facilitate the fight against climate change. A major restorative slow-down on climate change will be raising carbon storage levels of the planet, and educational awareness is key for that objective to be accomplished short and long-term.

 

It is for this reason that I want to ask your generous help to donate to a library or libraries who truly need this information most. With this information, the public’s search will facilitate the education and awareness from the books’ methods and practices to solve the long-disputed issue on climate change. The break- down of the prices are on Ingram Catalogs page 159, Edition 2017, September under their Field and Nature Guide books. Amazon and Barnes & Noble are a couple of bookstores offering these books. You can get in touch with the publisher for information on global printers, Ingram Advance has the printer files and could produce any number of copies for any number of libraries globally.

The publisher is Mind-stir Media LLC, North Hampton, NH Tel #: 1-800-767-0531

Scientifically proven facts are indisputable, but that hasn’t stopped climate change deniers from trying. Much of the controversy regarding climate change stems from the recalcitrance of corporations to adhere to stricter emissions standards, which, consequently, is born of the fear of lower profits. Dr. Gboloo argues in favor of a different approach that doesn’t undermine private sector profits but does have the potential to make a major impact on the future of the planet”. —- excerpt on Vol I, Part II of series: from The US Review of Books
