About This Club

It's getting hot out there! This group is for everyone concerned about global warming and who wants to learn and discuss everything there is about climate change - its causes, effects and solutions.

  1. What's new in this club
  2. Did you know that climate change threatens both chocolate and coffee? Chocolate is on track to go extinct in 40 years due to climate change. The warmer temperatures and drier weather, from man-made climate change, will hit cacao plants so hard that they, according to experts, could disappear by as early as 2050. And climate change will have similar severe effects on the world’s coffee supply. Maybe this will get the attention of the general population?
  3. You usually hear the phrase that we're all responsible for climate change and that it's a global problem and all that. But is that really true? Are we all equally responsible for climate change? Of course not. A report, released by British charity Oxfam in 2015, clearly shows how unequal this responsibility really is. According to the report, the world's richest 10 percent produce half of the greenhouse gas emissions that's causing this climate crisis. Meanwhile, the poorest half only contribute a mere 10 percent of emissions. And let's be real here, not much has happened over the course of two years to change this unequal division. And this is not about individuals, either, it's about developing and developed nations, the South versus the North. And of course it's not all black and white. The rich, and developed countries, have a historic responsibility to make deeper cuts than poorer developing countries, and to take the lead in the fight against climate change. After all, they have the most to cut and can best afford to forgo "development". That's climate justice.
  4. This is just heartbreaking! In a colony of about 40 000 Adélie penguins in East Antarctica only two(!) chicks survived this year's breeding season. The catastrophic breeding event is a result of climate change, as well as overfishing, oil drilling and pollution. The Guardian reports: Penguin disaster as only two chicks survive from colony of 40,000 And it's not just about climate change, as John Sauven notes: Penguins starving to death is a sign that something’s very wrong in the Antarctic Adélie penguins tend to be regarded as as a species that could adapt better than other species to a rapidly changing climate. But coupled with both global warming and overfishing, they are having a hard time to survive - as this catastrophic breeding event so brutally shows.
