Many people think it is a reality and can guess about its possible causes and impacts. If you have had an experience or have a story to tell us about how climate change is affecting us directly or indirectly, please share.
On the 27th of December, 2012, an environmental sminar on "Climate Change" took place in Kazakhstan, at the SEED school in Kyzyl Tobe 2 village, Aktau city. Leila Ybyraikyzy, KAZ/UZ Environmental Manager, and Charlie Moore, Aktau Account Manager, led the event.
Where I live, Autumn is the time that families go apple-and pumpkin-picking on weekends, in a fine example of agritourism. Really, there is nothing better than an apple fresh from the tree. But according to an article in my local paper, some of the orchards in my area have almost no apple harvest. The reason? The weather last spring.
Ever wondered what happens to the recycled trash you conscientiously sort every time you reach for your trash can? I do! And do you have the answer?... Me not either. Since recycling became the “must-do or die in shame” way of life, I always been curious to know what really happens once the roaring of the trash truck fades away in my street.
My herb and vegetable garden this year has been a real testament to the change in climate in the Northeast U.S. Plants that normally die off each year are back, and others that should be doing well as "cooler zone" plants are toasted. For example, my parsley went immediatley to seed, and my kale keeps trying to flower. Happily, the kale flower buds are quite delicious sauteed with garlic!!
