Temperatures here in the UK have fallen to below average for the time of year. Seems like another summer of good and bad days, mainly bad. We are well used to it!

The Climate Change conference has started in Bonn, Germany.  Countries from all over the world are attending - even small Island countries.  These Island countries are begging for action as the sea levels are rising and they fear that their existence is in jeopardy.  Some experts predict that some Islands will disappear with rising sea waters.  Actions by larger nations appear to center around reducing the emissions of autos by eliminating fossil-fuel driven cars while the polluters of coal continue unabated.

Climate change is real.  Scientists have issued a warning that the damage will soon be irreversible unless immediate action is taken. Some of us won’t be around to witness the devastating effects, but that does not make the concern less knowing that our family and the lives of many will suffer.  If one thinks that hurricanes, tornados and earthquakes are bad, we haven’t seen nothing yet.
There are those that are fighting the industrial polluters.  This past week in Germany, a forest with very old trees was scheduled to be cut down to make way for coal mining operations.  Some nature lovers had built tree houses in these ancient trees.  The police arrived and began destroying their trees houses.  These activists went to work petitioning the government to save the trees and at the same time reminding the government that it was pledged to fight coal-fired energy that pollutes the environment.  The Police were withdrawn and the activists began building new tree houses with others joining in this nature pursuit.  Activism works with determination and with a just cause.

Our uninformed President doesn't worry about climate change. Hope he can get out before our houses
fall down or wash away.

History records past migrations due to climate change.  There are books written about the Sea People invading countries in the Middle East seeking food and, in the process, leaving a path of destruction in their wake.  Geographical borders changed as science records the effects earth’s movement with plates shifting causing earth quakes. “The Earth is in a constant state of change. Earth's crust, called the lithosphere, consists of 15 to 20 moving tectonic plates. The plates can be thought of like pieces of a cracked shell that rest on the hot, molten rock of Earth's mantle and fit snugly against one another.” (Source Wikipedia).  
 If one believes in science, then one must consider history and scientific evidence along with predictions.  As geographical changes occurred millions of years ago, further changes will occur due to the shifting plates.  We won’t see it in our lifetime, however we will experience the effects of the slow-moving plates with earthquakes.  As sea levels rise affecting coastal regions, other areas will experience drought.  Migration will become a natural result as people seek safety and food.  I suspect that in the process there will be wars fought resisting the invaders.  Today, we are seeing people migrating for economic reasons as they seek a better life causing dissention at borders, both in Europe and the USA.  I expect that this phenomenon will increase and that governments should be prepared to deal with it peacefully.  Desperation will result in conflict as it did in the past.  With the availability of arms, it will be more deadly than medieval weapons of war.
