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.

Noam Chomsky was referring to the conference in Marrakech, Morocco in the latter quote.
The Anthropocene is a proposed epoch dating from the commencement of significant human impact on the Earth’s geology and ecosystems, including, but not limited to, anthropogenic climate change.
“Bangladesh is now widely recognized to be one of the countries most vulnerable to climate change.”
