Just as Great Barrier Reef, Australia’s Mangrove Dying May Contribute to Global Warming

Our ecosystem is in exponential collapse, yet in our climate change circles, there is a preponderance of articles dealing with icecap melt and rising sea levels, as if these things were happening in isolation. None of these disasters are happening

Kevin Hester
Kevin Hester is currently living on Rakino Island, a small island in the Hauraki Gulf near Auckland New Zealand, monitoring the unravelling of the biosphere and planning Professor Guy McPherson’s November 2016 NZ and Australian speaking tour which is a follow up to the 2014 speaking tour. The Island has no grid tied electricity or reticulated water. I catch my own water from the roof and generate my electricity from the ample solar radiation on the island.
