  • Climate Change Already Dramatically Disrupting Every Aspect of Life on Earth
 

Nature already dramatically impacted by climate change, study reveals. It seems like the scourge of climate change is wreaking havoc with the delicate balance of Mother Nature.

Humankind is playing with fire. As man-made pollution causes climate change on a grand scale, every facet of society from the genetic materials of animals and man to whole food webs are being damaged.

Some of the consequences are such that the delicate ecosystems are undergoing a rate of unpredictability and randomness that can spell alarming danger for the entire planet. All is not right with planet earth today. The light bulb is getting dim.

The novel study concerning this was published recently in the journal Science.

It found that 80% to 90% of the processes found in Nature are reaching their breaking point. Many oceanic, lake and regional ecosystems are showing signs of having reached their limit.

Even human beings are showing the unmistakable signs of stress. Mother Nature is fighting back now that mankind has become the dominant species on the planet.

Since man is all set to destroy anything that stands in his path, Nature has retreated yet it will have its way in the end. Pests have become more common despite there being tons of pesticides. Also epidemics and pandemics have multiplied thereby plaguing an already suffering humanity.

Both the yield from the marine reservoirs and agricultural produce show signs of trouble. With even a single degree of warmer weather, everything would undergo a drift and massive change.

Things would fall apart. Everything from genes to body shapes and sizes are under pressure. Species are also being pressurized by this steamroller effect.

Culture has become a black hole which is engulfing and devouring up Nature. This climate change is still minimal yet the effects we are seeing are deadly. What can we say regarding further climate change that will transpire with the times. 

Sensibility dictates that we take drastic steps to reverse the process or at least stem the tide of destruction and devastation. Both policy makers and our enlightened leaders ought to sit together and chalk out a plan to counter the deleterious tendencies of climate change.

The rehabilitation of wilderness, oceans, fields and animals in the open ought to begin. It is now or never. We have the necessary knowledge. The only thing is to apply it.
