Universe Day is an annual day of educational, social and celebratory events all over the planet. Universe Day begins each December 31 at noon and ends at noon January 1 st. This year the message of Universe Day 2014/15 focuses on:
1.) "increasing awareness of the "climate cliff" --- catastrophic and irreversible climate destabilization caused by human-caused carbon pollution of our atmosphere by fossil fuels."
2.) dramatically reducing human-caused carbon emissions in the atmosphere. Reducing human-caused planetary carbon emissions is truly Job One for Humanity! (For more information on reducing human-caused carbon in the atmosphere, click here.)
Listen carefully to the subtly changing official government message on climate change and global warming. The new official message is "prepare and adapt!"
Those in the know at the highest levels of the world's biggest institutions and governments have already been advised the battle for the climate has already been lost and and we are now in for "a whole lot of climate destabilization hurt coming down the road until the climate finds it new dynamic equilibrium level."
Agriculture will account for 70 per cent of global carbon emissions by 2050 compared with 25 per cent now, if global food production maintains a “business as usual” strategy, Jürgen Voegele of the World Bank has warned.
