Global Warming Needs Urgent Response Now, A Guest Post by Tom Mills

NORWAY: A crying face is revealed in an ice cap located on Nordaustlandet in the Svalbard archipelago in Norway. A melting glacier has amazingly taken on the form of a face - worryingly resembling Mother Nature in tears at the state of our planet. The stunning image shocked onlookers who felt the vivid pattern in the melting glacier looked like teary-eyed nature staring straight at them in a foreboding manner. 'Tears' in the natural sculpture were created by a waterfall of glacial water falling from one of the face's 'eyes' and painted an alarming picture warning the world about the effects of global warming. Marine photographer and environmental lecturer Michael Nolan captured the disturbing pictures while on an annual icy voyage to observe the glacier and surrounding wildlife on July 16.

Scientists are using the shifting of Earth’s poles to measure climate change

The breaking news in my mind should be, “CLIMATE CHANGE HAS CAUSED THE EARTH’S POLES TO SHIFT.”

A NewScientist article from Dec. 13, 2013, notes that in one year Greenland has lost 250 gigatonnes of ice, mountain glaciers have lost 194 gigatonnes of ice, and Antarctica has lost 180 gigatonnes of ice.

A gigatonne equals 1,000,000,000 tons.

We can debate what causes global warming and climate change, whoʼs at fault, how many jobs will be lost, how much money it will take to fix the problem, and point fingers at each other all day long.

The truth is, our small planet has lost at least 624 gigatonnes of ice in the last year.  The loss of this weight has caused the location of Earth’s poles to move.  Not the magnetic poles — but the actual location of the poles.  If we lose another 624 gigatonnes of ice this year, how far will the poles move?  How many gigatonnes of ice are there?  How many more gigatonnes can we afford to lose before the earth’s rotation and delicate balance is in real trouble?

The movement of the poles has changed the flow of the jet stream.  The change in the jet stream has caused rain, snow, wind and storm patterns to change.  This change causes floods in some areas and droughts in others, temperature swings, seasons to change.  All of these changes affect our food supply, plant cycles, our drinking water, our civilization. All this ice turning into water causes sea levels to rise, islands to sink, cloud and rain patterns to change.

With warmer ocean temperatures we can expect stronger hurricanes, tsunamis, higher tides, and fish populations dying or moving to cooler water located at the poles.  These changes will effect millions of people now, and many more in the future, worldwide.

The only debate we should be having at this time is: Where and how soon will the meeting between the most powerful and creative minds from all countries, all people, all around the planet, come together to find a solution and correct the problem? I would like to bring a few of my Hopi friends. Wars, power, money–none of this might matter in the end.

  1. Hi Pam: Thanks for sharing this article Pam. Many of the extreme weather events experienced in North America over the last decade were predicted in reports released in the early 1990s and yet surveys indicate that most Americans still don’t believe in climate change. We need articles like Tom’s to get the message out because politicians will not act until they know the public wants action. Kim
