Even the folks (not on AN!) on the fringe who distrust science, and prefer Natural!!! remedies (as if everything is wonderful except for human activity -- shades of "original sin"?), should be concerned about losing biodiversity! There's plenty we can learn from how various living things have adapted to meet their challenges, and plenty of undiscovered chemicals that might be extremely useful if not lifesaving.

Don, apparrently this little darlin' was a rat-like creature that lived only on a few isolated, low lying islands that have flooded more with the sea level change. I wont take the bait about anthropogenic, regardless of cause, climate is changing. to be honesy, I cant get worked up about some little rat - like rodent dying off, on some obscure island. Maybe we can regard it as a canary in a coal mine, but I suspect it still wont be missed.

How do they know it wasn't a virus?  Or seagulls, or some other malady?  How do they know it was due to climate change?  And how do they know it is anthropogenic CO2 that caused the dastardly deed?

Youtube video: Richard Lindzen on climate change

Even though I admit to a feeling of validation when I saw this video I'm more interested in what it didn't say... and the thoughts of you folks who disagree with my climate change conclusions.

Water sequestration is a viable option if there is water in the atmosphere and ground. However, when those go, so goes living things as we know them.  

There are some things I can do to slow the flow of water off the soils into ravines and rivers and ultimately into the ocean.  

*catch and store rainwater;  

*create hugelkulturs;  

*use gray water;  

*drip irrigation & soaker hoses;

The 12-month running global temperature has increased to 1.246°C above preindustrial.

Arctic Sea Ice Blog

It’s not just that we’re seeing record global heat. It’s that 2016’s jump in global temperatures may be the biggest single-year spike ever recorded. It’s that the world may never again see annual temperatures below 1 C above preindustrial averages.

Last month was the hottest April in the global climate record. Not only was it the hottest such month ever recorded — it smashed the previous record by the largest margin ever recorded. [emphasis mine]

This compares global April temperature averages. That big jump at the end was last month.
