Artic sea ice is disappearing, and we’re running out of time.
According to the Arctic Methane Emergency Group, a dangerous feedback loop has begun in the arctic.
As warming melts arctic sea ice methane pockets are released. This methane causes further warming, which in turn melts the ice faster, releasing more methane… you see the problem here. This chain reaction would without a doubt be disastrous to the biosphere. This sudden and total loss of arctic sea ice would throw a wrench in the ocean’s food chain, and have disastrous effects for every creature on Earth, including human beings. This isn’t fear mongering, this is reality, this is the consensus of experienced scientists who know exactly what they’re talking about.
According to AMEG the loss of this ice could become unstoppable by human efforts as early as September 2015. We’ve run out of time for inaction, for procrastination. It doesn’t matter who you are – this is a matter of the human species. Liberals and conservatives, socialists, communists, radicals, and nationalists, blacks, whites, people of all backgrounds, all walks of life, this is about you.
“But what can I, an ordinary person with no power in government, do?” you ask. Well for starters, sign this white house petition to bring the issue to the President’s attention. With enough signatures, the administration will hear our voices and act, and we need them to do so ASAP. Remember, we’re down to a matter of months. Please, sign it, let our leaders know we won’t stand by and watch our planet die any longer. And when you’re done with that, if you have the energy, write a letter to your congressman. Send an e-mail. Don’t know how? Check here. But please, don’t do nothing. We need all of us if we’re going to force action on this.
Don’t scroll past this. Your voice matters, and you could be a part of the push that saves the world. Please, for your sake, for your children’s sake, for all of us.
