The Holocaust of Climate Change

Posted on July 19th, 2017 in Climage Change,Environment by Robert Miller

I just finished reading an account of climate change provided by my oldest son Derek: read it if you dare, but I warn you nothing you have ever read about climate change will shock you as much as this article: it is written by David Wallace-Wells (I have listed several of his articles which you can go to below, by clicking on his name)

The problem with climate change is that we have a group of scientists, people that are engaged in topics that are so difficult, that each individual scientist, that is engaged in his/her work, has to sustain their entire careers, with the demanding  efforts of their chosen profession. They must keep up with the ever-expanding-literature, and of course in this publish or perish era, each scientist not only keep up with the literature, you have to write at least one paper each year, that appears in a top-notch journal: failure to so might find one in the company of the long extinct do-do bird.

But the article you are about to read was written by a part time climate scientist, who has become a generalist, and in so doing he has been able to explore things, that you don’t expect from an ordinary run to the mill climate scientist.

On one of his observations I have some expertise.  “Already, more than 10,000 people die each day from the small particles emitted from fossil-fuel burning” [quoted from the article by David Wallace-Wells]. This is a problem mostly in China, and their government has been silent on this malady; these small particles are so tiny that they directly enter blood stream through the lungs. There, they increase the viscosity, forcing those exposed to increase their blood pressure and die from cardiac arrest. It is not a pretty thing to see, but it primarily expressed in old-age people, who are already compromised in their cardiac efficiency.

You can read the full text by going HERE.  He opens up the first section as “The Uninhabitable Earth.” Read it and weep. The article is written by .
