Arctic is greening due to global warming

1 Comment


GREEN – NASA, Handout Cindy Starr-NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center – Using 29 years of data from Landsat satellites, researchers at NASA have found extensive greening in the vegetation across Alaska and Canada. Rapidly increasing temperatures in the Arctic have led to longer growing seasons and changing soil for plants.

Funny how so many New Age pundits tell us to “embrace change” and look for the BIG GOOD in the flux of smaller good and bad events. But all this great sounding wisdom flies out the window when it comes to the warmer regions and climate change.

Why?

Because climate change is really a political issue. Some regions will suffer, others will likely benefit.

I’ve been saying this for months now, but because current power brokers and vulnerable peoples are concerned about what climate change will do to them, we hear a great outcry. I’m not sure if Canada will truly benefit. True, it’s a cold country and our population is quite small, largely because of the climate. But personally, I like it that way.
