“Climate change is the ultimate cause, even if the proximate cause is something different,” claims McCann. “These type of things are only going to become more common, more frequent and the issue of warming waterholes is going to become worse and worse in time.” Because of climate change, Southern Africa’s temperatures are rising at twice the global average, according to CSAG, one of the leading climate research groups in Africa.

ROBERT HUNZIKER—In time, sea levels will surpass 1-2-3-4-5 feet, and more, but within an unknown time frame. Keep in mind even one-foot of an increase spells worldwide coastal disasters. A Noah’s Ark scenario is not needed to upend coastal cities throughout the planet.
The rule of thumb for sea level rise is: One inch of sea level increase submerges 50-100 inches of beach coastline. So, in plain English, if one-inch equals 4-to-8 feet of submerged beach, in turn, one-foot will submerge 48-to-96 feet of coastline beach. (Source: NASA-Jet propulsion Laboratory). That’s a lot, especially for Miami Beach, where the city has already had to raise streets (Google: “Miami Beach is Raising Streets by 2 Feet to Combat Rising Seas” to see a photo).

P. GREANVILLE—omebody left a few tightly sealed boxes in an alley, and by sheer luck a kindhearted passerby heard some anguished cries and took the boxes to a rescue group. No one knows why this stranger —or strangers—did that instead of simply leaving the boxes right outside a shelter, and then calling to alert the staff. It’s also fortunate they were not killed outright, the fate of untold millions of young animals down the ages. Surprisingly, the kittens were thirsty and demised, and covered in fleas, but otherwise in acceptable health. Also, equally important for their future, they were not wild; they had obviously had human contact.
