AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Australian’s facing a National Security threat by waning ability to produce its own food. The shortages are directly related to the War in Ukraine and drought and flooding. One Planet and we’re all affected by Climate Disasters. The UN worries about our Oceans and we’re responsible for voting in policies that have led to our problems! Be proactive now to secure our future!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce The effects of the Climate Crisis now on Agriculture. As the planetary weather changes, we’re losing our ability to grow coffee, chiles, mustard, wine, grains, wheat, corn, and chocolate . The Western World will adapt to a bland diet & we’ll learn to engineer our food. However, the growers of crops will be destitute , suffering from erratic drought s and weather extremes. The farmers globally, especially in poorer Nations like Brazil and West Africa , they’ll go hungry. Western Nations may have insurance protection & the prices for food will continue to increase. There are remedies: solar panels over crops to shield them from the Sun. We can’t save Apples from an early frost. We can stop the War in Ukraine, this is unnecessarily increasing our Global dependence on dirty fossil fuels and creating a devastating heat feedback loop. Are we capable of saving ourselves? Can man stop his ambitions for conquest? If not, give Ukrainians the overwhelming firepower they need and end Putin’s War quickly. The World can not afford a War that exacerbates climate change!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce There is little doubt Climate Change is driven by an industrialized Society. It’s not clear what the impact of climate extremes; drought, floods, cyclones, has on people, poor and middle classes, agriculture, healthcare, productivity and infrastructure. There is a cost associated with Climate Extremes in human life and property!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Great places to visit from Mozambican’s rewilding project, to the Montana grassland to Kazakhstan ! They’re reintroducing the right predators to create a renewed ecosystem. Res establishing biodiversity! It’s good for the land and Planet.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce As climate crisis are exacerbated expect volatile climate periods , alternating between extremes in rain & snow and the 1200 year drought with little water available for agriculture. When we’re living on the edge of these crises, we’ll need resources to harness and manage the water when supplies are abundant and then parcel them out in the dry years. Our Future is here and we have to plan for our survival!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Re wilding of the Galapagos has started . They’re getting rid of invasive species and reintroducing native species to encourage a Savannah ecosystem. Restoring the Galapagos has the added benefits of more tourism and a healthy ocean. Other Native populations throughout Latin And South America , Australia are reclaiming their land. Reintroducing predators that encourage small mammal development and contain forest fires. Man and nature living in harmony. Moving forward together with what works. Giving Indigenous people renewed purpose in preserving all life!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Opioids and heat are overwhelming Arizona residents. 700-800 have died from Fentanyl over does. Opioids have reached overwhelming proportions in American deaths. Over 100, 000 died from Fentanyl last year. Clearly the misery of the last years: Climate heating and the Pandemic have taken a toll on America’s psyche. We’re living in physically and mentally challenging times. Americans will need a day of mourning and relief from stress. It’s too darn hard to cope!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Marine heat waves causing bleaching of sponges off New Zealand, Spain has lost it giant mollusks, what species will die off next. Marine heating is a closed loop. Once the ocean temperatures lose sea ice the oceans form a warm feedback loop. Too bad we have no Global platforms in place to recommend and implement Climate Mitigation.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Communities are stopping the building of gas stations and American cars are going electric. More cities to follow along with the cleanup of these sites. They’re a bio hazard and generally require $250,000+ for clean up of the oil tank leaks underground. Finally, a real reminder, fossil fuels have had their run and we can plan for our future.COP 26, to meet this summer to discuss the sudden loss of bio diversity. #Climate Mitigating approaching!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Yellowstone National Park to reopen its South Loop only to visitors, through a regulated system of car entry on odd and even days according to your license plate #. People with prior reservations for overnight stays can enter at will. The North loop will remain closed for the season. Old Faithful is ok , the waterfalls of the Southern Loop were untouched by the rains. Have fun!
