Consequences in the Netherlands It is also getting warmer in the Netherlands and the sea level is rising. The main consequences of climate change for the Netherlands: The weather is becoming more extreme: more heavy showers, more heat waves. There is a greater risk of flooding: the rivers and sewers are no longer able to drain the water properly during heavy rainfall. Nature in the Netherlands is changing: species that originally come from warmer areas, feel more and more at home in the Netherlands. Well-known examples are the oak processionary caterpillar, the small hermit crab, certain tick species and the "hay fever plant" Ambrosia. Another effect is that spring starts earlier: plants bloom earlier, trees sprout earlier, insects appear earlier and birds breed earlier in the year. This can cause problems, for example for migratory birds that missed the insect peak upon arrival in the Netherlands and cannot find enough food. Species that cannot adapt quickly enough to changing circumstances run the risk of disappearing. There are also advantages: we can grow other vegetable and plant species because they will do better in the Netherlands. Winters are getting milder; it will freeze less often. It is getting wetter: in the spring, autumn and winter there is more rainfall. Summers are getting drier and hotter. There are more summer and tropical days. In the Netherlands, the consequences of climate change can probably be controlled. We can strengthen dikes and dunes and create storage areas along rivers for extra river water. You can also help to limit waterlogging by applying fewer tiles and more greenery in your garden. Rainwater can then sink into the soil, so that the sewer is less overloaded (so: less flooded basements and streets).
That special day.
you remember it.
22-12-2007, there was frozen fog on the trees and a blue sky. It was just a few hours. It was marvelous.
The zebra finch (Taeniopygia guttata) is the most common estrildid finch of Central Australia and ranges over most of the continent, avoiding only the cool moist south and some areas of the tropical far north. It can also be found natively in Indonesia and East Timor. The bird has been introduced to Puerto Rico and Portugal. - Wikipedia

project with a tribute to climate and in the hope that we take climate change seriously and start to do something about it.
The shift to a cleaner energy economy won't happen overnight, and it will require tough choices along the way. But the debate is settled. Climate change is a fact.
In reality, climate change is actually the biggest thing that's going on every single day.
Climate change is happening, humans are causing it, and I think this is perhaps the most serious environmental issue facing us.
The cost of our success is the exhaustion of natural resources, leading to energy crises, climate change, pollution, and the destruction of our habitat. If you exhaust natural resources, there will be nothing left for your children. If we continue in the same direction, humankind is headed for some frightful ordeals, if not extinction.

Thank you for your kind visit. Have a wonderful and beautiful day! ❤️❤️❤️
The world is looking to this conference, but is it more than hot air again?!-
For this shot, I took the water out of the pond and laid this texture over it. Isn't it horrible? A processing as in reality!

Was trying to do some photos about the climate change theme. Ok I admit, in the Death Valley is easier, and this is one. Sun or Moon?

Met these three local climate change experts in a remote village of Satkhira district in Bangladesh. Within one and half hours learnt a lot about community based adaptation of climate change. They are the true fighters from the front!
as if singing a lamentation while sitting in a gray alder, the roots of which cannot find water and which therefore loses its young leaves .

This is Lake Michigan yesterday. It used to freeze clear across nearly every year. Three years ago it froze across for the first time in many years. Now this year in February it has only the smallest bit of ice on it, but what an amazing blue sky it was. Today it was 53 degrees, strange weather indeed.
Please take a minute to press L and view in large!
I have no rhyme for this time
Summer came early autumn leaves are on the line
yellows, reds and oranges were green just fine
but now it's too early and here they are.
This photo shows the climate changes taking place: I shoot this little grebe at the lakes of Colbricon, in the heart of the Dolomites, in August, at an altitude of 1927 meters, where it had nested (the couple had 2 chicks). Usually little grebes do not nest above 500 meters, and in any case in 50 years that I frequent the area I had never seen one. In the same period I saw a couple of grey herons at the Calaita lake, at over 1600 meters above sea level: even in this case I had never seen herons in the area.
Apparently the higher temperatures, especially at night, and the frequent thermal inversion are changing the habits of the fauna...
...did we leave it a better place?
a flickr friend, raised the issue:
"At the eve of the climate change conference in Paris, it is time to reflect and take action. What will we do with what we know?" -photo_tintin
There are wooden benches outside the Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument in Colorado that show frost flakelets melt to water with the morning sun.
It doesn't take long.
My fear once we start emerging from this Coronavirus crisis and the economic cost is counted, that we will turn away from the de-carbononizing of our energy system. Investment in renewable energy will help us in a variety of ways.
Will Steffen in today's Saturday Extra radio program outlined 3 things.
1 - Listen to the science - the federal government is doing this now, so do it with the climate crisis.
2 - Start your action early.
3. Dealing with the crises takes precedence over direct economic concerns.
So employing more people in renewable energy, retooling essential manufacturing and ensuring we have greater resilience in our country instead of looking overseas are all important in climate, reducing waste and making those adjustments to living a lot more sustainably.
The current crisis is leading to cleaner air, water and environments generally. Take heed!
Snæfellsjökull, which means] snow-fell glacie, is a 700,000-year-old stratovolcano with a glacier covering its summit. The name of the mountain is actually Snæfell, but it is normally called "Snæfellsjökull" to distinguish it from two other mountains with this name. It is situated on the most western part of the Snæfellsnes peninsula in Iceland. Sometimes it may be seen from the city of Reykjavík over the bay of Faxaflói, at a distance of 120 km. In the foreground of the image one can clearly distinguish material from an old eruption of the volcano, spouting lava rock everywhere.
The mountain is one of the most famous sites of Iceland, primarily due to the novel Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864) by Jules Verne, in which the protagonists find the entrance to a passage leading to the center of the earth on Snæfellsjökull.
The mountain is included in the Snæfellsjökull National Park
In August 2012, which is PRECISELY when we were visiting, the summit was ice-free for the first time in recorded history. CLIMATE CHANGE AT EYE SIGHT!
Two years of summer drought due to climate change European Spruce forests die from bark beetle invasion.
Climate change has been and still is the subject of fierce debate for some years, many saying that there is no such thing as climate change and others professing impending doom.
Climate change is a natural phenomena, it has been since the beginning of time, however, mankind and the way we live our lives is influencing our planet and its climate significantly.
We clearly have to move away from fossil fuels, we need to find a way to deal with our waste products, plastics being dumped at sea is not an answer, the impact upon marine life is dreadful.
So my question is this, if mankind has had such a negative impact upon climate change, do we have enough innovative and progressive ideas and attitudes to be able to repair the damage we have caused?
I was quite pleased to capture this photo. We sailed up one of the Chilean Fjords passing a small local cruise ship anchored by the glacier. As we sailed back down I noticed the group of passengers on the 2nd morrain (most recent one) & grabbed the photo quickly. The front morrain has vegetation growing on it while the people are on the more recent one of the retreating glacier. Most glaciers of the world are now retreating with climate change. It is strange to think this is how our local patch of Norfolk looked 1000's of years ago with the 2 morrain's equating to the ridges near Cromer & Blakeney. This photo was once a potd on the website I was on before I joined Flickr
