My Five New Year's Day Wishes are:

5. Addressing Climate Change


Thank you for your kind visit. Have a wonderful and beautiful day! ❤️❤️❤️


Twenty-five years ago people could be excused for not knowing much, or doing much, about climate change. Today we have no excuse.

Desmond Tutu


If you really think that the environment is less important than the economy, try holding your breath while you count your money.

Guy McPherson


We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.

Native American Proverb


This is not a partisan debate; it is a human one. Clean air and water, and a livable climate are inalienable human rights. And solving this crisis is not a question of politics. It is our moral obligation.

Leonardo DiCaprio


Climate change is no longer some far-off problem; it is happening here; it is happening now.

Barack Obama


Avoiding climate breakdown will require cathedral thinking. We must lay the foundation while we may not know exactly how to build the ceiling.

Greta Thunberg


Thank you for your kind visit. Have a wonderful and beautiful day! ❤️❤️❤️


We will never will be able to make this due to climate change this is why I recreated it based on Flickr The Commons museums photography

Consequences in the Netherlands It is also getting warmer in the Netherlands and the sea level is rising. The main consequences of climate change for the Netherlands: The weather is becoming more extreme: more heavy showers, more heat waves. There is a greater risk of flooding: the rivers and sewers are no longer able to drain the water properly during heavy rainfall. Nature in the Netherlands is changing: species that originally come from warmer areas, feel more and more at home in the Netherlands. Well-known examples are the oak processionary caterpillar, the small hermit crab, certain tick species and the "hay fever plant" Ambrosia. Another effect is that spring starts earlier: plants bloom earlier, trees sprout earlier, insects appear earlier and birds breed earlier in the year. This can cause problems, for example for migratory birds that missed the insect peak upon arrival in the Netherlands and cannot find enough food. Species that cannot adapt quickly enough to changing circumstances run the risk of disappearing. There are also advantages: we can grow other vegetable and plant species because they will do better in the Netherlands. Winters are getting milder; it will freeze less often. It is getting wetter: in the spring, autumn and winter there is more rainfall. Summers are getting drier and hotter. There are more summer and tropical days. In the Netherlands, the consequences of climate change can probably be controlled. We can strengthen dikes and dunes and create storage areas along rivers for extra river water. You can also help to limit waterlogging by applying fewer tiles and more greenery in your garden. Rainwater can then sink into the soil, so that the sewer is less overloaded (so: less flooded basements and streets).


That special day.


you remember it.


22-12-2007, there was frozen fog on the trees and a blue sky. It was just a few hours. It was marvelous.

Was trying to do some photos about the climate change theme. Ok I admit, in the Death Valley is easier, and this is one. Sun or Moon?

The world is looking to this conference, but is it more than hot air again?!-

For this shot, I took the water out of the pond and laid this texture over it. Isn't it horrible? A processing as in reality!


Wikipedia: To Un Climate Change Conference

When I walk through the woods and forests of New England, I constantly come across dozens of fallen trees everywhere I look. All living things have a natural life cycle, trees included, and nothing lives forever. Fallen trees in the forest are nothing new, but I'm amazed by the huge numbers I see on a regular basis. Most of the newly fallen trees have little or no root system to speak of. Last winter was abnormally mild. This summer was particularly dry. It seems that every time there is a strong wind, large fully mature trees start falling left, right & center. This stream has been dry for the last 5 months. We had our first decent rain with a bit of snow this week. The result - more fallen trees. Is climate change having an effect or is this just the natural life cycle of trees?

Climate change.....

Another of the glacial lakes below the icefields and glaciers of Monte San Valentin, Patagonia's tallest peak, is the silt-brown Lago Fiero with its build up of glacial ice at its end. All of the proglacial lakes in the Northern Patagonia icefield are expanding with climate change, and Lago Fiero is growing the fastest of all. The snow line elevation has gone up 100 M since 1987 and the glacier has retreated 2.3 km, nearly doubling the size of the lake. An interesting description of the glacial retreat is here:


Open your eyes to reality! We need to think of our children and grandchildren and act before it is too late!


Thank you for your kind visit. Have a wonderful and beautiful day! xo💜💜

Snæfellsjökull, which means] snow-fell glacie, is a 700,000-year-old stratovolcano with a glacier covering its summit. The name of the mountain is actually Snæfell, but it is normally called "Snæfellsjökull" to distinguish it from two other mountains with this name. It is situated on the most western part of the Snæfellsnes peninsula in Iceland. Sometimes it may be seen from the city of Reykjavík over the bay of Faxaflói, at a distance of 120 km. In the foreground of the image one can clearly distinguish material from an old eruption of the volcano, spouting lava rock everywhere.


The mountain is one of the most famous sites of Iceland, primarily due to the novel Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864) by Jules Verne, in which the protagonists find the entrance to a passage leading to the center of the earth on Snæfellsjökull.

The mountain is included in the Snæfellsjökull National Park

In August 2012, which is PRECISELY when we were visiting, the summit was ice-free for the first time in recorded history. CLIMATE CHANGE AT EYE SIGHT!

Signs of climate change? I think so anyway

Met these three local climate change experts in a remote village of Satkhira district in Bangladesh. Within one and half hours learnt a lot about community based adaptation of climate change. They are the true fighters from the front!

...did we leave it a better place?


a flickr friend, raised the issue:


"At the eve of the climate change conference in Paris, it is time to reflect and take action. What will we do with what we know?" -photo_tintin

The zebra finch (Taeniopygia guttata)[2] is the most common estrildid finch of Central Australia and ranges over most of the continent, avoiding only the cool moist south and some areas of the tropical far north. It can also be found natively in Indonesia and East Timor. The bird has been introduced to Puerto Rico and Portugal.[1] - Wikipedia

There are wooden benches outside the Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument in Colorado that show frost flakelets melt to water with the morning sun.


It doesn't take long.

Continuing with my Positive Flags of the Nations

project with a tribute to climate and in the hope that we take climate change seriously and start to do something about it.


The shift to a cleaner energy economy won't happen overnight, and it will require tough choices along the way. But the debate is settled. Climate change is a fact.

Barack Obama


In reality, climate change is actually the biggest thing that's going on every single day.

Bill McKibben


Climate change is happening, humans are causing it, and I think this is perhaps the most serious environmental issue facing us.

Bill Nye


The cost of our success is the exhaustion of natural resources, leading to energy crises, climate change, pollution, and the destruction of our habitat. If you exhaust natural resources, there will be nothing left for your children. If we continue in the same direction, humankind is headed for some frightful ordeals, if not extinction.

Christian de Duve


Thank you for your kind visit. Have a wonderful and beautiful day! ❤️❤️❤️

as if singing a lamentation while sitting in a gray alder, the roots of which cannot find water and which therefore loses its young leaves .

The needles are gone but the pines cones are still hanging on the weathered, dead branches.

Because of global warming, we planted three palm trees in our garden. I do hope they won't mind some unexpected temperature variations.

My fear once we start emerging from this Coronavirus crisis and the economic cost is counted, that we will turn away from the de-carbononizing of our energy system. Investment in renewable energy will help us in a variety of ways.

Will Steffen in today's Saturday Extra radio program outlined 3 things.

1 - Listen to the science - the federal government is doing this now, so do it with the climate crisis.

2 - Start your action early.

3. Dealing with the crises takes precedence over direct economic concerns.

So employing more people in renewable energy, retooling essential manufacturing and ensuring we have greater resilience in our country instead of looking overseas are all important in climate, reducing waste and making those adjustments to living a lot more sustainably.

The current crisis is leading to cleaner air, water and environments generally. Take heed!

Climate change has been and still is the subject of fierce debate for some years, many saying that there is no such thing as climate change and others professing impending doom.


Climate change is a natural phenomena, it has been since the beginning of time, however, mankind and the way we live our lives is influencing our planet and its climate significantly.


We clearly have to move away from fossil fuels, we need to find a way to deal with our waste products, plastics being dumped at sea is not an answer, the impact upon marine life is dreadful.


So my question is this, if mankind has had such a negative impact upon climate change, do we have enough innovative and progressive ideas and attitudes to be able to repair the damage we have caused?
