Ecological footprints

 

Wild life

The list below is in order of evolutionary decent. The general pattern is that at all levels the biodiversity is significantly reduced. The disturbing thing however is that if hypothetically biodiversity (and volume) at every level is halved, biodiversity in total might be reduced.

-    April 2007 ‘"For example, after objections form Saudi Arabia and China, the report dropped a sentence stating that the impact of human activity on the earth's heat budget exceeds that of the sun by fivefold. "The difference is really a factor of 10". says lead author Piers Forster (IPCC-report)..."the sun currently contributes an extra 0.12 watt of energy for each square meter of the earth's surface, whereas man-made sources trap an additional 1.6 watts per square meter. The document's conservatism also reflects the nature of climate change science. Various scenario's predict sea-level rise as little as 18 centimetres (seven inches) or as much as 59 centimetres (23 inches). None of these models, however, completely includes the potentially greater contributions to such a rise from the melting of glaciers in Greenland and Antarctica...". (p16 Scientific American April 2007, Conservative Climate, consensus document may understate the climate change problem)  PM Al Gore estimates the Greenland glacier to be good for 6 meters of sea level rise, like –only-  the south west part of the Antarctic; don’t forget effects of melting permafrost (Novosibisrkian buildings are already reported to be destabilising); don’t forget vaporisation (warm air can hold more humidity).
