The Rio+ 20 Earth Summit is well underway and has brought together the likes of political leaders, UN officials, community civil representatives, activists and celebrities, to work towards real policies for equality and environmental protection.

One well-spoken celebrity in attendance is UN Goodwill Ambassador and actor, Edward Norton. As the ambassador for biodiversity, Norton is there to help bring awareness to an alarming lack of species protection from current policies.

In a news conference held on day two, Norton attributed the lack of awareness to the fact that many people do not feel the immediate effects of species extinction, but the effects are there, nonetheless.

“Loss of biodiversity is a very difficult form of environmental degradation for people to wrap their minds around. They don’t see species disappearing in front of them in a short time-frame. They don’t necessarily see and feel every day their reliance on biodiversity.”

The actor went onto to explain how people often don’t realize how biodiversity touches their daily lives. He outlined that it is his role as goodwill ambassador to show the link between human survival and our reliance on the planet’s many other animals and plant species.

Joining Norton were Robert Redford, Penelope Cruz and former Beatle Paul McCartney and a host of other powerful celebs to sign Greenpeace’s petition for the creation of a global sanctuary around the North Pole, with a specific ban on offshore oil drilling and an end to unsustainable fishing.

    The sounds and rumbling of Volcanoes Around Earth
    are Waking Up at a Alarming Rate.

    Read well and study on your own after you have read this.

    This is not a game or joke our Sun gives off a Solar Wind all day year
    round if you live in the State of Alaska you see it in the sky above what a
    sight it is going through our Earth’s Magnet Polls of the North and the South,
    North Poll. Its Called the Northern Lights or the Aurora Borealis.

    The day will come when you will be able to see it all over Earth as in the
    year 1859 Solar Flare, It was the largest in 500 years. Two Astronomer’s Hodgson
    and Carrington told the World that the Solar Flare made a Geomagnetic Storm
    reach Earth in hours not days. Back then it gave new meaning to Reach For The
    Skies from Telegraph Operators. For hours sparks flew from the key board. Even
    after the Batteries were disconnected. Nov 3 and 4, 2003 had a X40+ Class Solar
    Flare.

    Our Sun’s UV Rays will get stronger as each passing day go’s by, read and i
    will tell you why.

    The Great big forest have be striped from most of the Earth for Greed of
    Money by the Wicked. The trees our are Main Source of Oxygen on this
    Plant.
    The Forest Trees scrubs the Pollution out of the air and makes Oxygen
    from the rain and dirt that it grows in.

    The Forest Trees do more then just make Oxygen they stop Soil Erosion, just
    Look at the 1930 Dust Bowl. Greed by our Government taxes led farmers to clear
    cut all their Forest and farm all the land they were being Tax on. They had to
    farm it to pay for the Taxes. Why leave the Trees when food crop makes Money.
    This Did not Help the Depression that effected most all Worldwide. This year
    2012 more then 100 million will suffer from Malnutrition lack of food and
    Dehydration lack of water. Many will not make it and die!

    Soon many will run out of Safe Drinking Water from pollution going into the
    worlds water supply.

    In the United States of America alone more than 45 Million
    Americans Received Food Stamps and that number is going up every day every year
    for more then 3 years in a row now.

    The Pollution and CO2 Carbon
    Dioxide go into the Tree Bark as a shield from most bugs so they do not eat the
    tree.

    Less Forest less Oxygen this is why the moon. That has no Oxygen is very
    cold on the side with out Sun Light, And hot as ever on the side with Sun Light.
    Way too cold and too hot to live there. You would need at least 10 times the
    Energy we use on Earth to even live there and life on the Moon would be very
    short.

    With no blank of Oxygen to lessen or reduce the Sun’s UV Rays and Solar
    Wind they are deadly there on our Moon. Every Mt. Climber and Aircraft Pilot
    knows the higher you go the thinner the Oxygen and colder it gets.

    Just spend a night on a Mt. top above 13,000 feet with no Sun Light and you
    will see or should i say feel the cold stinging any of your exposed skin. If you
    are new to Mt. Climbing stay below 10,000Ft. The Astronauts and the Cosmonauts
    and Fighter Pilots that i have been with for years know this very well, and the
    Radiation Hazards to humans at High Altitudes.

    Soon the Sun’s Solar Wind and UV rays will be way to strong for most to go
    out in the Sun Light for even a short time. The Geomagnetic Storm to come and
    the Bad Weather Storms well you have not seen nothing yet and the Sea Level is
    Rising the Oceans. Many Millions have been affected by Floods in China and
    Pakistan just last year. In 2005 Over a Thousand dead in New Orleans flood, and
    the list going on. The sounds and rumbling of Volcanoes Around Earth are Waking
    Up at a Alarming rate.

    And there shall be famines, and pestilences, and Earthquakes, in divers places such as was not
    from the beginning of the Creation.

    The last 30 years On Earth we have broke all High Temp Records and the temp
    it is still going up. All the Worlds Ice Glacier are melting at an Accelerating
    Rate. The Glaciers and Polar Ice Caps store more water than all the Fresh Water
    Lakes on Earth. Many of them are drying up or water levels are going down past
    the lowest point every recorded.

    The Bad Weather Storms now are Babies compared to what is to come.
    They will get even bigger and worse less Oxygen the more UV Rays to the
    Earth and more Water molecules will evaporate and go up into the Earth’s
    Atmosphere. Less Oxygen the colder with out sun light and hotter with it.

    The Sky full of more water vapor molecules, more snow in the winter and
    more Flash Floods in the Summer. All earth will see way more fires and the
    Deserts are growing larger.

    If every living person on Earth were to Plant A Tree Today we might have a
    chance.

    The Earth’s Atmosphere Blanket surrounding it protects life on Earth as Our
    Lord and GOD will all that seek Him.

    Then it is written when the tree is full it is harvest time. All the Earth
    will someday burn away.

    This is all Foretold in the Bible Read it
    and may our Lord Bless all
    that do so.

    P.S.
    2 Peter 3:10
    But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in
    which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed
    with intense heat, and the Earth and its works will be burned up.

    GOD Bless You and Your Love ones
    Give thanks to our Lord Jesus Christ
    every day.

    Luke 21:20-22
    Matthew 24:
    30-33

    Earth is at its
    Limites

    MANY OF US IN THE SCIENTIFIC
    COMMUNITY HAVE BEEN SAYING SOME OF THIS FOR YEARS

    The United Nations is now taking a serious look into “Earth’s Limits”
    Earth will very soon be at its Limits of no return for many things including all
    life on Earth.

    If we keep going at this rate we will not have another 20 years to go back to
    Rio De Janeiro to play. Most all in the Scientific Community said this 20 years
    ago at the last time Leaders set up this meeting in Rio De Janeiro.
