Noctilucent clouds

A Nasa satellite has taken beautiful photographs of these strange phenomena high above the Arctic. According to James Russell III of Hampton University, they might be a sign that the complex rarified atmosphere is being altered in ways we do not yet understand.

“The Earth is about to catch a morbid fever that may last as long as 100,000 years,” writes James Lovelock in his book ‘The Revenge of Gaia.” So, if these strange clouds are yet another example of a warning from this beautiful planet, who is paying attention?
2 billion people will be watching a series of concerts this Saturday… it will light up the globe like a firestorm, for a weekend.

Elsewhere, others write that they are happy to believe that the global warming problem is a conspiracy cooked up by big business, a money earner for a select few.
But this is just fiddling away with opinions; we might as well shift a few more deck chairs on our Titanic as it begins to sink; or ‘fiddle away’ as the Earth burns.

I commend anyone who cares, to read Mark Lynas’ book: Six Degrees, Our Future on a Hotter Planet.

Everything that has happened to the weather this spring and summer in Britain and Europe is exactly what is predicted in a 2 degree scenario. And by 2012 its probable that the Earth may reach a breakaway tipping point, where further accelerated rises in global warming are unstoppable.

Let us treasure the Arctic and Greenland ice for a while before its all gone.

I’m confident it will happen much much sooner than we thought.
