Planet Earth

 

Our climate models may be missing something big, warns Peter Brannen, author of Ends of the World, for The Atlantic “Our planet is fickle. When the unseen tug of celestial bodies points Earth toward a new North Star, for instance, the shift in sunlight can dry up the Sahara, or fill it with hippopotamuses,” writes Peter Brannen. “Of more immediate interest today,” he observes, “a variation in the composition of the Earth’s atmosphere of as little as 0.1 percent has meant the difference between sweltering Arctic rainforests and a half mile of ice atop Boston. That negligible wisp of the air is carbon dioxide.”

"The Anthropocene at 36,000-foot Depths " --Mercury and Carbon-14 from Nuclear Weapons Testing in 'Pristine' Marianas Trench

 

“Deep-sea trenches have been viewed as pristine ecosystems unsullied by human activities, but recent studies have found traces of anthropogenic lead, carbon-14 from nuclear weapons testing, and persistent organic pollutants such as PCBs in organisms living in even the deepest part of the ocean…,” said Jeffrey Drazen, an oceanographer with the University of Hawaii, about man-made mercury pollution detected in fish and crustaceans at the bottom of the 11,000 meter-deep Marianas Trench in the Pacific Ocean, which has significant implications for how mercury affects the marine environment, and how it may be concentrated in the food chain.
