Healthy Lifestyles, Global Warming - Have You Seen The World Clock?

Mar 27, 2008
You may have seen the United Nation data based World Clock circulating on the net. The Clock shows best estimates on a variety of changing statistics. Some these are: the population on earth is 6.64 billion people and that number is climbing each second.

There are still twice as many bicycles as automobiles being made yearly, right now. Twice as many people die from heart related disease than from cancer. This was a shock to me.

World oil production continues to climb. All these numbers change before your eyes. So does the average temperature of the earth's surface. Steadily. This is every weather station in the world reporting the current local temperature, and it slowly, but continually climbing higher. You do not see an occasional reversal with a polar storm that sweeps down to Florida and kills oranges, that clock ticks up.

Winter on one side is still summer on the other as we roll around heaven all day. Earth's average temperature is 14.1 something ten digits over. And those last digits are merrily skipping upward as you watch. You do not need a Ph.D to see that those final numbers do not go up and down even once, they simply keep moving upward.

So you can see that if these weather dials that spin higher, cause scientists to say a rise in the earth's temperature by one degree will bring the sea up to our knees, up by two degrees and we in coastal cities all get to live as if in Venice.

The good news is we can count the time in that clock as it rises, and realize that is our time line for survival on our good ship lollipop. We are all in this together. And this is fascinating, as scientists from many locations have watched the changes as different species areas the local species do not have defenses against. We see barbed sting ray fish entering new waters and spike soft shelled creatures with no defenses.

Larger predator mackeral coming north up the Pacific are thriving in the warming water, feasting on cold water salmon trying to get to spawn up the warming rivers they now choke in. Every corner of earth has unwanted change whether spreading deserts, rising sea levels, wilder weather. And we build our smoke stacks higher to send it farther down wind.

Great challenges, many weather matters can be calmed, with industry and cooperation. It is overdue, long past time of denial. Can you not read a clock which has active dials spinning out our future. Only we can reverse that. Some would shoot the clock. That will not grow roses in a desert, nor food to eat. We can do it. We will do it.

Because we are humanity,all brothers and sisters really, and we have always taken every challenge we throw at each other yet and are still, somewhat standing. Here we are, and here we come, world. Not yet ready, but ready to talk. While there is time.
