Description:
We have selected 100 unique places on Earth that are projected to
undergo profound changes within the next few generations.
We based our selection of the 100 places on the 4th Assessment
Report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
Simply by drawing attention to the beauty of these places, 100 Places to
Remember Before they Disappear creates an argument to preserve
them.
The 100 Places we have chosen to highlight, and the people who
live in them, are in serious danger because of rising sea levels, rising
temperatures and extreme weather events triggered by climate change.
Among ambassadors are Joss Stone, Desmund Tutu for more info visit http://www.100places.com.
Hawaiian Honeycreepers Hiding in the Clouds
High in the cloud forests, where the climate is cool, live the beautiful and colourful Hawaiian honeycreepers. These rare birds use their long, downward-curved bills to sip nectar from flowers, hovering like hummingbirds and emitting a variety of sounds, from nasal squeaks to clear, flutelike calls.
The species of honeycreeper that is endemic to Hawaii lives at an elevation above 1,500 metres where the climate is too cool for mosquitoes to survive. Most of the Hawaiian honeycreepers are only 10-13 cm long and weigh no more than eight grams. They are extremely vulnerable to diseases like avian malaria.
The Hawaiian cloud forests make up one of the ecosystems that is most at risk due to climate change. Relatively small shifts in patterns could cause major local changes, putting the islands distinct ecosystems under pressure.
Deforestation and non-indigenous species like pigs and goats have decimated the honeycreepers habitat in recent years, and it is now an endangered species. With the projected rise in temperatures, mosquitoes are likely to gain a foothold at higher elevations in the Kauai mountains, slowly driving the honeycreeper to extinction.

Of the 80 species of native Hawaiian birds, 21 are found on Kauai only.
There are 300 species of flowering plants found on Kauai only, and 47% of
the flowering plants in Hawaii are found on the island of Kauai only. The
island of Kauai is indeed a hotspot of biodiversity, not just for Hawaii,
but for the entire world.
These videos only ... ( 4 years ago por sabashsabash)
These videos only do the following: 1. define an "obvious" problem/issue,
2. uses a catchy phrase "turn solutions into actions", and 3. then moves on
to the next obvious problem/issue ... It doesn't provide a solution. WHAT
is the solution to the challenges the world is facing? Climate change is a
global issue. HOW to deal with it? Typical marketing journalism with no
substance at all.
