Bear Springs Blossom Nature Conservation + Protection Bear Springs Blossom Nature Education + Lectures Climate change is real The science of climate change is sound and all citizens on Earth must act. Get involved! Blue is cool red is hot
Map by NASA shows temperatures changing
Climate change - droughts and floodsFloods are causing a lot of damage Droughts are causing a lot of damage These two extreme weather conditions will occur much more often! The drought in Central Texas kills many of our old oaks at our Nature Preserve. But no only our preserve has problems - We warn for over 10 years, that methane ice is a big threat for our climate. In the last weeks we got new reports, that more and more methane ice is thawing, and is bubbling up in many lakes in Canada, Alaska, Siberia. Methane was trapped there during the last ice age!! Methane is 10 times more potent than CO2 in causing global warming - Imagine ten times stronger isolation of heat inside the Earth's atmosphere!! If all methane ice on Earth will become gas and goes into our sky, humans will need to invent new scales for storms, hurricanes, typhoons and flood surges. Billions of living beings will die .... July was the hottest the earth's oceans have been in almost 130 years of record-keeping. The average water temperature worldwide was 62.6 degrees, according to the National Climatic Data Center, the branch of the U.S. Government that keeps world weather records. That was 1.1 degree higher than the 20th century average, and beat the previous high set in 1998 by a couple hundredths of a degree. The coolest recorded ocean temperature was 59.3 degrees in December 1909. The warm ocean temperatures are already harming threatened coral reefs, are melting Arctic sea ice and are helping hurricanesto strengthen. The Gulf of Mexico, where warm water fuels hurricanes, has temperatures dancing around 90. Most of the water in the Northern Hemisphere has been considerably warmer than normal. The Mediterranean is about three degrees warmer than normal. Higher temperatures rule in the Pacific and Indian Oceans. The heat is most noticeable near the Arctic, where water temperatures are as much as 10 degrees above average. The tongues of warm water could help melt sea ice from below and even cause thawing of ice sheets on Greenland. So, don't wonder if your electricity bill is up, cooling our homes.. Human Energy needs take a big junk of money out of our pocket.
Climate change will cost us trillionsClimate change is endangering our life Climate change will kill many plants Climate change will destroy rain forests
Many animals are endangered - Climate change is caused by burning too much fossil fuels in a very short time
Melting ice takes away the home for Polar bears
Changing climate takes away the home of the Golden cheeked warbler, so its endangered
Climate change is causing a change in wildlife and reduces the habitat of the Condor The outcome of Climate change is: Humans will pay higher prices for food Not all humans can afford that. Our children will live in an environment that much more violent with less drinking water More storms More floods More earth quakes Rising sea levels More illegal immigrants More starving humans Billions will have to leave their homes because oceans will cover part of their home land.
Do you like the idea? If not - take action!
Floods are caused by violent weather Violent weather is the reaction of high and low pressure in the athmospere Climate change intensifies floods
Climate Change and dustDust in the wind is rewriting the cycle of life in the mountains. Throughout memory the warmth of spring has begun the mountain snowmelt, bringing life-giving water to greening plants so they can blossom and renew their species. But now, scientists say, the timing is being thrown off by desert dust stirred as global warming dries larger areas and human activity increases in those regions. This dust darkens the surface of winter snows, warming it by absorbing sunlight that the white surface would have reflected. That causes the snow to melt earlier than in the past, running off before the air has warmed enough to spur plant growth. On average cleaning away the naturally arriving dust delayed snowmelt by 11 days Overall, dust levels in the mountains are about five times greater than they were prior to the mid-19th century, due in large part to increased human activity in the deserts. And climate change is likely to result in greater dust accumulation in the mountains as the US-Southwest warms and dries further. With the change in timing of snowmelt and plant growth the composition of alpine meadows could change as some species increase in abundance, while others are lost, possibly forever.. What is the mission of Bear Springs Blossom Nature Conservation? We want to keep Earth safe - safe for the next generation. We believe that more knowledge about Earth makes it easier to save Earth. The main point is to make a significant dent in climate change. What can we do to reduce greenhouse gases? What can we do to reduce to destruction caused by climate change? We use Renewable Energy We show you how to use Renewable Energy and we explain why We defend our oceans by challenging water pollution and wasteful and destructive fishing. We work hard to protect all forests on Earth and the animals, plants and people that depend on them. We work hard to create a toxin free future with safer alternatives to hazardous chemicals. We campaign for sustainable agriculture. We want to protect biodiversity.
Climate change will change our life on Earth and will affect all nations all plants, all animals, all humans all living beings on Earth. The global community must reduce the amount of carbon dioxide and other global-warming gases being pumped into the atmosphere. All governments must enact a comprehensive program. Test your politician how much he cares Climate change is an accountability project. Members of Congress and the president should go on the record and make clear their views on climate and energy policy. Likewise, the interest groups that have a stake in climate and energy policy should be scrutinized so that the people understand their views and how they are working privately and publicly to shape legislation and policy. Ask questions: Are lawmakers delivering clear information to voters about where they stand on climate change? Are voters informed about the lobbying efforts and campaign fundraising being driven by groups interested in influencing climate legislation? Which interest groups are truthful in their messages? Renewable energy and Recycling helps to be less vulnerable to foreign oil producers! It reduces pollution, it reduces climate change! Climate change makes floods more violent! Be active, be responsible! Show, that YOU care for Nature! Show, that YOU care about the next generation! Show, that YOU want to keep Earth beautiful!
Earth at night - light pollution causes climate change - energy waste is the reason for global warming Climate change is among the most pervasive threats to the Earth today. Informed people have the power to address air quality, air pollutants, burning fossil fuel the root causes of violent weather + floods + earth quakes and limit its impact on our planet (the only home we have).
