In Markus 4,31 steht,dass das Senfkorn der kleinste Samen auf Erden ist. Es gibt aber noch kleinere, z.b. den der Orchidee. Kennt Jesus sich in der Natur nicht aus?
Obama Highlights Emerging Impacts of Climate Change, Calls for Energy Transformation and for Community Climate PreparednessThu, 14 Feb 2013 00:00:49 +0000
In his State of the Union address last night (12 February 2013), President Obama said that "for the sake of our children and our future, we must do more to combat climate change." He pledged to "come up with executive actions we can take, now and in the future, to reduce pollution, prepare our communities for the consequences of climate change, and speed the transition to more sustainable sources of energy." He said that "if Congress won’t act soon to protect future generations, I will." Lou Leonard, WWF’s head of climate change, responded: "It was encouraging to see President Obama connect the dots between extreme weather and dirty energy, and to be clear that he won't wait for Congress to act. Cities and towns on the front lines of extreme weather can't afford more excuses from Washington."
In his Second Inaugural Address, President Obama says "We will respond to the threat of climate change"Mon, 21 Jan 2013 17:21:05 +0000
In his second inaugural address, President Barack Obama said today (21 January 2013) at the Capitol in Washington, DC: "We will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations." Lou Leonard, head of WWF’s climate change program, is heartened by the President's statement, saying that "it is an important first step for using the power of the Presidency to spur a practical national conversation on climate change. The importance of the President regularly raising his voice on this issue cannot be overstated. But a sustained national conversation isn’t enough. The President should lay out the steps he can and will take to clean up our energy system, help communities prepare for climate disruption and encourage the rest of the world to ramp up action."
Chicago, Cincinnati and San Francisco have been selected as U.S. finalists in World Wildlife Fund’s Earth Hour City Challenge, a year-long challenge rewarding cities that are preparing for increasingly extreme weather and promoting renewable energy. Both Chicago and Cincinnati experienced their warmest years on record in 2012.
In the latest in his “Climate Denial Crock of the Week" video series, Peter Sinclair provides an overview of the climate extremes in 2012 that battered the U.S. The conditions have helped shift public opinion and elevate the public debate around climate change.
"I wager," says WWF President and CEO Carter Roberts in this Huffington Post piece, "that like Lincoln, President Obama will be remembered most for what he does to address the existential threat that history has presented on his watch: the breakdown of our planet's natural systems upon which all life depends, and specifically human-caused climate change."
