After a couple of weeks of posting current headlines about what is happening around the country and globe relating to climate change, I was thinking that this week I’d tackle just one topic, one article, and get into it in more depth.  But as I reviewed the articles that I had read and saved for this publication I was once again left breathless by the breadth and number of items that hit the public media just his week.  It is astounding, really mind boggling, how fast, and increasingly so, the urgency and call for speed and drastic action from multiple influential sources is occurring.  Don’t blink or you’ll miss an incredible amount of fast breaking news.  

Pressure is growing and becoming exponentially greater on government and private institutions to take dramatic action to mitigate the increasingly obvious physical aspects of climate change and and what already is and increasingly will be its devastating financial impact (and opportunity as well).

I’ve always believed and predicted here that there was a tipping point coming and when it hit it would be dramatic.  It certainly appears that we are finally at the beginning of it now.  I’ve also always believed that the biggest driving factor of meteoric and historic change would be social change and pressure.  Once public perception and pressure changed everything else will follow at supersonic speed.  

So buckle up as I simply reveal this week’s headlines.  If you care to read the whole article Goggle it and if you have trouble finding it let me know and I’ll get it to you.
