Requiem for Paradise

Following is a short movie about the violent weather events that are becoming more and more frequent, all over the world.  This is of course the result of climate change, which is occurring because we are filling the atmosphere with heat-trapping greenhouse gases, mainly CO2.  At the same time we are killing many other forms of life with fuel emissions, chemicals and pollutants.  Often, as in this instance, it has lately become common to detect trees dying from exposure to ozone in recent photographs and film...although it was most likely not the intent to show them.
These are screenshots from one of this spring's record-breaking season of tornadoes.
The last picture is a flooded farm somewhere in the midwest, where the crowns of trees have bare branches, just as they do at this moment in New Jersey.  Tomorrow I will try to post local photos collected this past week, but for now, here is "A Link Between Climate Change and Joplin Tornadoes - Never."  If you've got any denier friends, this is the one video you should persuade them to watch.
