    I am afraid that severe crop failures is the only event that will cause the world to take global climate crisis seriously. In the US the fossil fuel sector is still acting as business as usual. The energy investment sector is interested in Natural Gas only because of it's drop in price with the increase in supply, and really doesn't give a damn about sustainability. Melting of the Arctic ocean has the energy companies licking their chops to drill for oil. We have a President that talks about all-of-the-above energy sources including "clean coal", a true oxymoron.

    Most people can't read the guages: CO2, CH4, Ph, T, Phytoplankton, storm energy, storm frequency, rainfall, etc., but will take notice when populations can't feed themselves.
