As millions continue migrating to a coastal way of life worldwide - are rising sea levels and severe weather, coupled with ground water extraction sinking whole cities, posing existential threats to coastal communities?
As humanity continues to ignore a path to sustainability, the question is not whether we have overshot Earth's capacity to support us, but by how much. A recent revisit to the Club of Rome's Limits to Growth models suggests global population and resource extraction peaks this decade. After that...?
Faced with the quadruple threats of direct heat, acidification, algal bloom-induced dead-zones, and our unrelenting overexploitation; what is the prognosis for the planet's most important ocean ecosystems and fisheries, such as coral, seagrass and kelp-forest ecosystems?
Global heating reflects atmospheric CO2 concentration rather than our rate of CO2 emissions. Net Zero emissions targets won't reduce CO2 in the atmosphere. Do our historically high atmospheric CO2 levels ensure further global heating and rising sea levels are ''Baked-In'' for decades to come?
What will being past Peak Easy Energy, having consumed all the easy and cheap-to-extract fossil fuels available on Earth, means for our transition to a carbon absorbing economy within the next couple of decades?
Where is Nannup and why I have started a blog discussing the challenges of living a Nannup life (or living anywhere else on the planet for that matter....)
