What is "will?" Can its meaning go far beyond what our mind think at first? Will is energy!!! It is the source of energy that allows us to pursue our goals, our mission. "Often life is a fight between wills and often our will suffers from the blows of those who feel threatened by it," because it threatens their status, or their convictions, convictions which come out of a system created by someone unknown or simply by itself (who knows. To the posterity the arduous sentence).
Climate Change has given birth to a big, global debate over the past 30-40 years. Although the scientific community, thanks to the numerous reports by the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), agrees on the facts that 1) climate change exists, 2) climate change is caused by anthropogenic factors (by humans), 3) Climate change over the last 200 years has accelerated considerably (it is estimated that Cliamate Change is 170 times faster than in pre-industrial times), there are still people who deny these statements; they claims that climate change is natural and we cannot do anything to change the course of events. This article proposes an analysis of the three major measures (consequences/results) of Climate Change (CO2 concentration in the atmosphere, Global temperature, Arctic ice extent). It’s interesting to note that these three measures converge in one direction: Earth moves towards overheating with tight rhythms.
Today, I’m going to explain why in the current state "we are not able to face" the serious threat of Climate Change. A few days ago (October 8th 2018 - Republic of Korea) the results of the latest alarming IPCC Report (Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5ºC) were released, calling for urgent actions to tackle the threats of Global Warming. Yet let’s think a little bit back... just a few days... Think of the news on TV, newspapers, in short, think of mass media. How long have day talked about this Report? Once? Two times? And let’s watch the news this evening. As usual we will see the news on the Stability and Growth Pact. In short, the Stability and Growth Pact is more important than the IPCC Report, it is more important than Climate Change! There is something wrong in this… Priority is given to less important things and more important things are kept in the background. Short-term thinking (the Stability Pact) is preferred to Long-Term thinking (facing Climate Change).
ARCTIC MELTING: According to the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC), ice lost goes on in both poles … Arctic sea ice extent for June 2018 was the 4th lowest extent for the month in the satellite record. What about the Antarctic? Sea ice expanded at a faster-than-average pace in June in the Southern Hemisphere, bringing Antarctic sea ice extent closer to typical ice extents for this time of year. This follows on the heels of a period of below-average ice extent since austral winter in 2016.
Dario Ruggiero, initiator of Long Term Economy, has recently been nominated GGA Co-chair in Italy. Together with Messiana Carboni, he will coordinate GGA community in Italy in order to grow and allow members to help each other in their humanitarian work. GGA stands for Global Goodwill Ambassadors. It is a great developing international community made by people with a great heart and with willingness in helping the needy.
