What are we doing to our planet?

Crudely described, carbon deposits laid down over millennia as fossil fuels have been ripped out, burnt for energy, and then spewed into the atmosphere as CO2 and other greenhouse gases – all in a matter of decades. Rapid and visible changes in the climate and environment are evident and are regularly before us on our television screens. Closer to home, we also are experiencing extreme weather events, record rainfall, weather bombs and flooding – as are others else where in the world, who are even more vulnerable to such events than we are. The logic of the modelling of these trends (which so far has lagged behind the pace of change) is that “business as usual” – could result in run away climate change and  catastrophic warming resulting in  conditions on earth inhospitable to life.
