Maybe some don't know why there is murcury in fish.

Coal power plants emit murcury.

Interesting, Chris G.

... the main factor behind the continuing slump since 1970 - escalating over "the last eight years", was a lack of sufficient industrial innovation...

So climate change and Wall Street corruption had nothing to do with the slump? <humph>

Do you think the Californians battling the Blue Cut Fire would agree?

BTW, please next time consider such a meaty posting for a new discussion, rather than just a comment.

Chris G. That graph showing exponential population growth is excellent and needs to be understood by everyone. 

As to " is there is a more appropriate place to post" this? 

I don't know. I keep looking for the right places for comments. Your pieces on "Eco-Logical: A Group for Environmentalists" seems perfect to me.

Unlimited GDP growth is over as we enter a new age of resource scarcity - we must transition to a new economy.

If there is a more appropriat place to post the previous please let me know.

Thanks.

I haven visited A/N for awhile. I recall this thread discussed overpopulation and climate change. TNT666, myself and others used to post about population limits and earth's capacity.

If so, or if not here's a video about overpopulation.

Published on Aug 10, 2016

As the number of people living on planet earth grows by the minute - we are sitting on a ticking time bomb - all 7 billion of us. So does overpopulation actually pose a bigger threat than climate change? I'll ask activist and author Karen Shragg in tonight's Conversations with Great Minds.

For more information on the stories we've covered visit our websites at thomhartmann.com - freespeech.org - and RT.com. You can also watch tonight's show on Hulu - at Hulu.com/THE BIG PICTURE and over at The Big Picture YouTube page. And - be sure to check us out on Facebook and Twitter!

The freezing point is a tipping point in the Arctic.

A group of scientists studying a broad range of Arctic systems — from sea ice to permafrost to the Greenland ice sheet — gathered in D.C. Wednesday to lay out just how extreme a year 2016 has been so far for the northern cap of the planet.

“I see the situation as a train going downhill,” said Marco Tedesco, who studies Greenland at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University. “And the feedback mechanisms in the Arctic [are] the slope of your hill. And it gets harder and harder to stop it.”

The most troubling aspect of all of this, and a recurrent theme of the talks, was the researchers’ emphasis on how changes in the Arctic are not necessarily linear in nature as global warming growsonce you cross the freezing point, notes Robinson, it’s a total phase change for water, plain and simple — and that the system is laden with feedback processes, which amplify themselves.

“The extraordinary years have become the normal years,” said NASA’s Meier. [emphasis mine]

You know how wind circulation at earth nullschool goes by millibars of pressure rather than height above the surface. Climate Change has raised these patterns considerably, since warm air expands more than cool air.

Brian Brettschneider, Alaskan climatologist tweeted:

Jan-June global 500 mb heights are 3.01 standard deviations above the 1949-2015 average (N.H. is 3.38 s.d.)

Three standard deviations higher!
