GLOBAL WARMING: END OF HUMAN CIVILISATION......


GLOBAL WARMING: END OF HUMAN CIVILISATION

List of countries by carbon dioxide emissions: Top 3 Countries
Country % of world population % of World CO2 emission
1 China 19% 28% CO2
2 USA 4.4% 15.6%
3 India 18.2% 6.56%

UPDATE: Vietnam is losing rice fields to sea at an alarming rate and it is feared that there will be not enough rice fields left to produce their main export commodity * Rice.
2 degree C is considered too high and demand is growing to limit global warming to 1.5 degree C. This night save some land getting lost to sea because of rising sea level due to Global Warming.
9th October 2018.

The world has warmed more than one degree Celsius since the Industrial Revolution.
The Paris climate agreement 2016, agreed to restrict Global warming to 2 degree Celsius.
The odds of succeeding are one in 20 but 2 degree means extinction of the world´s tropical reefs,
the sea*level rise of several meters and the abandonment of the Persian Gulf* a long*term disaster.

Failing that, 3*degree warming means the loss of forests in the Arctic and the loss of most coastal cities.

Four degrees: Europe in permanent drought; vast areas of China, India, and Bangladesh claimed by desert; Polynesia swallowed by the sea; the Colorado River thinned to a trickle; the American Southwest largely uninhabitable.

The prospect of five*degree warming has prompted some of the world´s leading climate scientists to warn of the end of human civilization.

Do we need to worry? Not if you are in the USA because President Trump has pulled out from
The Paris climate agreement so he thinks that Global warming will go away if you ignore it.

I am an Engineer and a Scientist and I have seen the effect of Global warming and Global disasters.
I am worried and you should worry too even if you are in the USA. Fires all over should warn you.

Sometimes


Sometimes
Sometimes we hear love whispering
in the breeze with thoughts flowing
with majestic magic.

Sometimes we doubt feelings crossing
quietly by, in a moment of light, just
before dusk.

Sometimes we search all our lives to find
what we have always had from the start
we just never looked deep enough within
to find ourselves till now.

Sometimes when we laugh too much it
may cause others to wonder if something
is not being shared, to make them laugh
in the same manner!

Sometimes just smiling, radiating light
will make another happy, just seeing
your shiny face.

A CHANCE OF SUN


There is a chance
of sunlight

on your face
that far outshines
the moon and the stars.
You keep your lantern
lit. And, like a moth

drawn to your flame, I encircle
the wick of each flickering smile.

The chance
of your sunlight

is the redemption
that I await. I bask
in your radiance.
I dance to the beat
of your sun*filled days;

and I welcome
your moon*glow nights
wrapped in
the soft fluid luster
of your warm sunny glow.

Saving Faith


Faith is the assurance of things,
Hope of what to look forward to;
About what that the unseen brings,
Of the promises to construe.

For by it the people of old,
Had received their condemnation;
That the wrath of the Lord did scold,
About their abomination.

By our faith we understand,
All things created by the Word;
Because of that God does command,
Giving life to all that occurred.

So, of what is seen was not made,
Out of things that are visible;
Through the foundation that He laid,
To a place that is feasible.

By faith we offer unto God,
An acceptable sacrifice;
That is giving honor and laud,
For the One who had paid the price.

Through which He commends as righteous,
Looks down with favor for the gifts;
Giving blessings that are boundless,
For saving faith as it uplifts.

By faith we will be taken up,
For living after our death;
As we drink His blood from the cup,
Giving new life after last breath.

It is impossible to please,
Without faith for bridging the gap;
He ignores our prayerful pleas,
As Satan holds us in his trap.

By faith God will send a warning,
Of the events as yet unseen;
Saving from a sudden mourning,
Caused by a disastrous scene.

For the designer and builder,
Has laid a solid foundation;
Not to confuse or bewilder,
Rather by giving salvation.

From one man that was good as dead,
Gave birth to the stars in Heaven;
For the bread of life, we are fed,
Faith as eternally given.

A Chance in Dance


A Chance in Dance

Soft velvet and quality silk were purchased for her dress.
A Royal Ball at the Palace would offer her a second chance.
Her King had vanished two years ago in a land called Timberlance.
Since that day the Queen has not been the same.

She spends her days behind closed doors pacing marble floors.
She ran her Kingdom with loving wisdom her people she adored.
Her noble heart was fragile and shattered when her King disappeared.
Life without him was a sorrow she often feared.

Two hours away dignitaries Queens and Kings from afar gathered
From many Kingdoms all allied forces, and other supporting sources.
The hour arrived introductions after each sound of the trumpet.
The Ballroom was filled, the Good Queen was thrilled.

Some say there was magic that day when the dresses started to sway.
At half past nine, appeared a sight divine.
The good Queen set her eyes on her King, her very soul began to sing.
He was well and full of life and he held his beautiful wife.

Not one question of the lost years,
her heart released joyful tears.
Together they share the Kingdom's needs.
Honoring one another's deeds.
The King returns to his Queen.

(Dedicated to my Granddaughter. Cheyenne, this happy ending brings a new beginning.
With all my Love, Your Grandmother)

Climate change


Climate change

I once fished in an empty brook,
Naught on my line, nor on my hook,
And now the same applies it seems,
To insects, wasps and honey bees.

Gone from the land in recent days,
Killed off by man*made climate change,
All due to burning fossil fuel,
Petroleum and shale gas too.

Polluted rivers, seas and streams,
Air that one can hardly breathe,
Insecticide and fertilize,
Kill all the bees and more besides.

A sick bee struggled on the path,
Clearly ill and close to death,
Poisoned acres, acid rain,
Poor thing will never fly again.

I once walked in an orchard bare,
No apples, plums or juicy pears,
Withered blossom, empty bough,
What price denial, fake news now?

SELFISH




SELFISH

It`s strange how a situation can look
So different way down the line,
I met someone who was in a
Similar situation to mine.

Both our Mum`s were dying
And nothing could be done,
Nothing did any good
The grim reaper had won.

Now this is where we differ
In our approach to letting go,
He prayed for her to be released
From pain because he loved her so.

I was selfish, no thought for her pain,
I just needed her to stay,
And tho` I prayed as hard as I could
Still the reaper won the day.

Looking back I see the contrast
And accept my selfishness was vast,
Now another dilemma has come to pass
Which gives me more torment alas.

My precious dog Sweep had a stroke
Is what the vet told me that day,
Now decision time was on me again
To let him go or to have him stay.

The vet told me what I didn`t want to hear
She made everything very clear,
My tears fell freely as my world fell apart
The decision I had to make was breaking my heart.

I wanted him with me more than life itself
But who should I consider him or myself?
I made the wrong decision once before
So this time I thought I`d even the score.

He died in my arms as I talked softly to him
Never did I realize the torment that would begin,
My selfishness was over I had let him go
But the pain it caused you will never know.

There was no good feeling to not being selfish
Just to turn back the clock was my only wish,
I wanted him back I thought I`d go insane
Losing him just caused me unbearable pain.

I ask myself questions the answers I already know
I torment myself I just can`t let go,
I feel I need to be punished `cos I couldn`t do more
It`s an inward struggle as my mind wagers a war.

My Mum and Sweep now lie in painless sleep
While I am left alone with guilt to weep,
Sometimes you want something so badly
That selflessness doesn`t come into it sadly.

There were two situations and two choices
I had been selfish and I had been selfless,
I still lost my Mum and still lost Sweep
Either choice didn`t make the pain any less.

Having been selfish and also selfless
Both have left me feeling the same,
Two situations, two choices with one outcome
Losing my dog and my Mum has left me numb.
