THANKS AGAIN TO PredictWind for allowing La Vagabonde and us here in Seattle, at I Really Appreciate Science to share their position and maps. Its been an education for us trying to predict where we would go, then to see the plans of the crew and skipper as they travel with the wind and currents like modern-day Vikings. Remember 29.11.19 is a Global Strike Day whereever you are. For us #ScientistsForFuture it has added meaning.
Like the students and youth, we are not the leaders, as Ms Greta Thunberg (and we ourselves) have forlornly mentioned on more than one occasion. If we were, knowing the science and serving the science as we do, we would have ended carbon emissions long ago. Time IS running out. No one can predict the future.
But we do stand where no humans have stood before. Four Hundred and Eight parts per million (408 ppm) of our atmosphere is carbon dioxide (CO2).
“Ambient levels of CO2 hover around 400-500(sic) ppm. When you increase that level to around 1,000-1,500 ppm, you will see an increase in your yields and your plants will be much healthier.” – Airthings.com.
However, humans cannot sustain life at those levels. Bon voyage to #COP25 !
