|Are we doing enough to save the earth?
How much would it cost to rebuild our entire civilization? Is this the
ecological deficit we are leaving for our children?
The quantities of Greenhouse Gases, such as Carbon Dioxide, Methane
and CFCs, which have already been produced by industrial societies is at
a level which has triggered the comings and goings of Earth's Ice Ages
during the last million years. Recent discoveries in the geological record
reveal that transitions into and out of ice ages are marked by cataclysmic
changes in climate conditions and sea levels. We can not depend upon gradual
climate changes or sea level variations to which we can accomodate ourselves
during a Greenhouse Century. 120,000 years ago, conditions were very similar
to what they are now, when the last ice age began. Earth suddenly lurched
into what scientists refer to as the Madhouse Century, the transition period
into the Ice Age. During the Madhouse Century sea levels abruptly rose
20 feet from where they are now, and then plummeted fifty feet, all in
one hundred years.
The magnitude of the climate crisis requires nothing less than an all-out
emergency effort to convert western economies away from fossil fuel dependence.
To build a truly sustainable economy and eliminate human interference with
global climate cycles, the Climate Action NOW! will present a wide range
of resource access for activists, educators and journalists, and opportunities
for personal involvement in what must become one of the greatest mobilization
efforts in human history.
