Welcome to my page illustrating the many aspects of our collective Global Warming problem and what I hope to be helpful information regarding alternative energy and carbon-footprint reducing ideas.

We Humans have invented our own new geologic epoch called the Anthropocene. The Himalayan glaciers are melting. The Ocean’s waters are rising. And the acidity of the water is increasing. There is a mass extinction occurring now referred to as “The Great Die-Off.”

The delicate balance which moderated the weather of our planet is breaking down.

“The spill left behind two radioactive isotopes of cesium. One was previously undetectable in the ocean off the California coast, and the other had previously existed only in very low levels in radiation left behind from the fallout of atmospheric tests of nuclear weapons.”

Caesium-137

“It is among the most problematic of the short-to-medium-lifetime fission products because it easily moves and spreads in nature due to the high water solubility of Caesium’s most common chemical compounds, which are salts.”
Caesium-137

Unfortunately, the Earth is a closed system of interrelated systems that were in a delicate balance that has been disrupted by high CO2 emissions resulting from the Industrial Revolution and continuing with our geopolitical and economic dependence on fossil fuels.
