Blog Action Day: Finale


This is my final BAD’09 post for the day ..

i would like to thank the lead organiser Robin Beck for his hard work .. looking forward to participating next year! 😉

so as a finale .. id like to share with u 10 things that will disappear if  we dont take action against climate change ..

  1. Say Goodbye to French Wines
    Wacky temperatures and rain cycles brought on by global warming are threatening something very important: Wine. Scientists believe global warming will “shift viticultural regions toward the poles, cooler coastal zones and higher elevations.” What that means in regular language: Get ready to say bye-bye to French Bordeaux and hello to British champagne.
  2. Say Goodbye to Baseball
    The future of the ash tree—from which all baseball bats are made—is in danger of disappearing, thanks to a combination of killer beetles and global warming. (dont comment below telling me there are metal bats :P)
  3. Say Goodbye to French Fries
    Scientists from the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research say warmer temperatures are killing off wild relatives of potato and peanut plants, “threatening a valuable source of genes necessary to help these food crops fight pests and drought.”
  4. More Bear Attacks
    Earlier this year, Moscow warned its citizens to beware of brown bear attacks. In Russia, it’s been too hot in the winter for bears to sleep. When bears can’t hibernate, they get very grouchy and become “unusually aggressive.”
  5. More Stray Kitties
    Global warming has extended the cat-breeding season beyond spring, which is the usual time for a kitten boom. The kittens are often homeless and end up in animal shelters. And remember, “The trouble with a kitten is that/ Eventually it becomes a cat.”
  6. Say Goodbye to Ski Vacations
    Slopes on the East Coast last year closed months ahead of time due to warmer weather, some losing as much as a third of their season.
  7. Say Goodbye to Salmon Dinners
    Get ready for a lot more chicken dinners: Wild pacific salmon have already vanished from 40 percent of their traditional habitats in the Northwest and the NRDC warns warmer temperatures are going to erase 41 percent of their habitat by 2090.
  8. Say Goodbye to Your Pretty Lawn
    Thanks to global warming, dandelions will grow “taller, lusher, and more resilient.” By 2100, the weed will produce 32 percent more seeds and longer hairs, which allow them to spread further in the wind.
  9. More Malaria in Africa
    “A WHO report in 2000 found that warming had caused malaria to spread from three districts in western Kenya to 13 and led to epidemics of the disease in Rwanda and Tanzania.”
  10. Greenland’s Melting
    Greenland is melting at a rate of 52 cubic miles per year—much faster than once predicted. If Greenland’s entire 2.5 million cubic kilometers of ice were to melt, it would lead to a global sea level rise of 7.2 meters, or more than 23 feet.

so let’s all work towrads a safer and enviromental friendly world!! (or else u wont be offered fries with ur big mac ;P)
