UPDATED - Mounting Evidence of Extreme Global Warming
11 August 2008 -
Note: Another very important study came out about Global Warming that
confirms our earlier reporting that the melting and warming of the ocean
could produce a deep freeze that could take hold suddenly, (within one
) based on a study of what happened exactly 12,679 years
ago. Two articles have been added to the FN resource page:

A grounded bird
Perched feet from sheer faces,
Freefalls and deadly drops
Flying on jutted thrusts of rock
I suddenly feel boreal
The wind rustles steadily
In lower reaches of this chasm,
this monstrous ravine.
Clouds puff and duplicate
In the sun's constant spread.
Mountains engage the eye
From every dimension
Beyond the third
Into a timeless fourth.
Time eased away
In the day's anxiousness.
Next is annexed to now
You are the impermanence of moment.
wrote this beautiful
poem on the Appalachian Trail in his Journal in 1997.
On February 18, 2001, at only 26, doing what he loved most, climbing, his
support on an
ice ledge gave way where he fell into a deep chasm on Mt. Washington, New
The following resources on Global Warming were posted beginning February
22, 2002, with an article about widespread environmental change over the
Arctic. It makes sense to lessen the amount of greenhouse gas emissions.
The US government's energy policies push for another sort of an agenda,
one that adds money to their bank accounts with no regard to the
environment. However, it could benefit everyone by reducing pollution
from entering our atmosphere. One way could be in the development of a
invention to convert processed heat into clean electrical power
Scientists also need to discover and promote ways for carbon sinks,
absorbing carbon back from the atmosphere into the Earth. The slash and
burn raising of livestock needs to end; eating a vegetable-based diet
helps; and overcoming a fascist government that has misinterpreted the US
Constitution for power, greed, and fear-intention-betrayal.

This came in 20 March 2002 on the vernal equinox:
An Antarctic ice shelf that was 200 metres thick
and had a surface area of 3,250 square kilometres
has broken apart in less than a month.
"We knew what was left would collapse eventually,
but the speed of it is staggering,"
-- Dr David Vaughan
Glaciologist at the Bas in Cambridge.
"[It is hard] to believe that 500 billion tonnes of
ice sheet has disintegrated in less than a month."

The Day After Tomorrow?
The present state of the 'ocean conveyor belt'
that transfers warm, less salty water from the
Pacific to the Atlantic as a shallow current, and
returns cold, more salty water from the Atlantic to
the Pacific as a deep current flowing further south.
This flow is threatened by melting ice in the Arctic,
and disruptions off the Antarctic coast.
