Think about this for a second.
Each of us go to work, doing our job. Some of us hate it, some of us love it. Janitors, Doctors, Lawyers, Bankers, Restaurant industry... As we go to work, doing our job-- scientists go to work, doing theirs!! Pieces of government funding and sizeable donations made to keep these scientit's in their field-PAID! Sometimes, they work for much less than they deserve.
They present all this information and findings-- working hard to keep humanity and the Earth rotating. Keeping us in the know.
Now that we have been told what is happening, the government doesn't want to do anything about it? In fact, they are firing people for it. Around the world, NASA, scientists and researchers are BLOWING THE WHISTLE.
For OUR EXISTENCE.
For OUR LEGACY after us.
We remember Earth science.
The eco system has a purpose; without it, Mankind would be dead-- to put that sumply.
Bees + flowers/trees = Pollination
Giving us trees for OXYGEN exchange.
The moon and sun revolve every day pulling and pushing the ocean tide.
Marine life, is plummeting due to all legal AND illegal hunting practices.

Rainforests are responsible for roughly one-third (28%) of the Earth’s oxygen but most (70%) of the oxygen in the atmosphere is produced by marine plants. The remaining 2 percent of Earth’s oxygen comes from other sources. The ocean produces oxygen through the plants (phytoplankton, kelp, and algal plankton) that live in it. These plants produce oxygen as a byproduct of photosynthesis, a process which converts carbon dioxide and sunlight into sugars the organism can use for energy.
One type of phytoplankton, Prochlorococcus, releases countless tons of oxygen into the atmosphere.
protect plankton by decreasing pollution, using less energy, urging individuals and companies to stop destroying habitat on land and in the ocean, and encouraging others to stop overharvesting ocean wildlife. An important part of saving the ocean is working together and educating others about why it is important.
For decades, researchers have pointed to phytoplankton as one of the planet's most valuable resources. They form the basis of the marine food chain and provide half the ocean's oxygen (while trees, shrubs, and grasses provide the other half).
"Over the next 100 years, the climate will warm as greenhouses gases increase in our atmosphere," says Andrew Barton, oceanographer and associate research scholar at Princeton University. As the climate warms, Barton says, so will the oceans—bad news for phytoplankton, since warm waters contain less oxygen, and therefore less Phytoplankton, than cooler areas. Already, gradually warming ocean waters have killed off phytoplankton globally by a staggering 40 percent since 1950.

Global warming has caused such extensive damage to the Great Barrier Reef that scientists say its coral may never recover. According to a study published Wednesday in the journal Nature, baby coral in Australia's Great Barrier Reef have declined by 89% due to mass bleaching in 2016 and 2017.
The study measured the number of surviving adult corals in the Great Barrier Reef — the world's largest reef system — following extreme heat stress, as well as how many new corals it was able to replenish in 2018. Deadly back-to-back bleaching events devastated the reef, and now its ecosystem is struggling to recover. Not only have ocean heat waves led to a dramatic decrease in new coral, but also a change in the types of coral species being produced.
According to the study, the biggest decline in replenishment came from the reef's dominant species of adult coral, called Acropora, which supports thousands of other species. It experienced a 93% drop compared to previous years. The change is likely to reduce the reef's overall diversity, which will make it even less resilient to future bleaching events. "Our study shows that reef resilience is now severely compromised by global warming," said co-author Professor Andrew Baird.
We need to think about our current generation and future to come.

Our own children can see what is happening-- watching National Geographic and crying..
This is no longer about selection or "survival of the fittest".
We know what dies off next once our Ecosystem fails us...
A regular Joe Blow at a Gas Station attendant knows this....
Renewable Energy Sources have been discovered.... What the hell are we waiting for??!!?
Stop acting like we don't understand and SEE what is happening..

Hallo, was passiert wohl mit den vielen Tieren und Pflanzen welche keine klimatisierten Räume haben, kein Wasser und kaum noch ausreichende Lebensräume..... Ich höre immer viel über das überwiegend selbstgemachte Leid der Menschen.......aber wir sind hier nur Gäste auf der Welt und an den eigentlichen Gastgeber denkt wohl kaum noch einer. Die Welt in seiner ganzen Vielfalt und den wunderbaren Wesen die sie bewohnen sind eigentlich unsere Gastgeber und wir Menschen benehmen uns aber wie eine Horde unsensibler Touristen, die die Welt vergewaltigen und die Wesen die neben uns Menschen leben missbrauchen. Dabei ist wohl der wichtigste Faktor für das Leben und das Überleben überhaupt, ein entsprechendes Klima. Aus dem Streben nach wirtschaftlichem Wachstum und vorgetäuschten materiellen Wohlstand, wird unser Klima geopfert, weil ein paar wenige Superreiche den Hals nicht voll bekommen und kommerzielle Interessen künstliche hoch gehalten werden. Das ist einfach widerlich und wohl noch Teil eines alten Weltbildes mit der bitteren Überzeugung Wachstum ist die einzige Möglichkeit. Wir müssen aber nun Stabilität durch Dewachstum erreichen und nicht mehr höher, schneller und größer werden, sonder achtsamer und klüger .... LG Alexander Wolf
