A new report issued today by Artic scientists is warning that the effects of global warming on Artic ice caps is reaching catastrophic levels. The temperature is an astonishing 20C more than normal. They anticipate that the effects will be felt around the world as water levels rise and ecosystems are irreversibly impacted.
They are suggesting that we are approaching 19 tipping points that once “tipped” become impossible to right. It is like trying to put the genie back in the bottle.
Given the potential disaster for communities around the globe, further study needs to be done. The US has been allocating resources to the study of climate change, but that is expected to no longer be the case as Trump’s has made his intention to remove funding for climate change research to space exploration. Trump has made it clear that he believes climate change to be a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese government.
