The Reality of Climate Change : The Biggest Threat to All of Humanity and Life Forms on Earth
Climate Change and Conservation for me started over 50 years ago. In fact, in the introduction of my first published book in 1989, I warned of Climate Change and Deforestation. So as a Marine Biologist and Ichthyologist, starting my apprenticeship at the waters edge at just 7 years of age, this book has something to say. I hope you grab a copy of the book to gauge what is really going on, and how our lives are being affected now. Many of the views and reports today being aired surrounding climate change by the United Nations, Governments, and Institutions, can very often seem distant issues and have no bearing, or relevance, to folks real lives. To most folk 40 to 50 years ago "climate change" was probably not on anyone's radar. However, even back in the 1960's and 1970's there did exist signs of change then, and not for the better. Please read on..... As each year has past on, even as a small boy to a young man, you would notice change and decline to our environment, less fish, less worms and an ever increasing film of dead algae and oil spillage caught in the saltwater pools and also covering silt banks and sand bars with a distinct smell. The warning and pre-cursor to our impact on Earth and especially surrounding fossil fuels, came with the sinking of SS Torrey Canyon off the Cornish Coast in 1967, spilling over 120,000 tons of crude oil that even reached the Thames Estuary, leaving massive devastation to the environment around Britain. So my book here "The Reality of Climate Change" provides an accurate account of how everyday Folks lives are now being affected, at the coal face as they say! In the book, I wrote and warned of serious neurological diseases from air pollution including Alzheimer's that I was convinced like other degenerative diseases of cell damage has been caused from air pollution toxins, preventing the renewal of brain cell tissues and other critical nerve system cell structures. I felt compelled to write this book, as I really care about our home (Mother Earth) and all the world's majestic life creatures we share it with. No longer can the few of us do all the heavy lifting, we need your help to challenge our negligent politicians and Corporate Empires. Now since writing the book, I am pleased to see more folk in the media are now starting to feature "Climate Change" and especially welcome Sky Broadcasting launching "Ocean Sea Rescue" exposing the plight to our dying Seas, Rivers and Oceans. "On the 12th of October 2015 BBC's Newsnight Team Broadcast a News Feature on Air Pollution which confirms my findings in this 'NEW' Book on Climate Change regarding serious Health issues including Respiratory Disorders, Dementia, Alzheimer's etc." "On Monday the 22nd of November 2015 there was a Special Sky News Report, where HRH Prince Charles accurately stated the planet faces catastrophe and needs to be put on life support now to prevent ever increasing disasters as a result of Climate Change." At the time of writing this book, there are two specific numbers you need to remember and these are 275 and 400! What relevance are the above numbers you may rightly ask? FACT: 275 Is the parts per million number of Carbon Dioxide for starting all of life on Earth and in layman terms, many millions of years ago. FACT: 400 Is the parts per million number of Carbon Dioxide today in the Earth's atmosphere and these factual measurements are courtesy of friends and colleagues at NASA (nasa.gov). Ever wondered why there is a rise in Respiratory Disorders, Alzheimer's, Dementia the list goes on....over 50,000 folk in Britain will die this year and rising from air pollution. Governments target the smokers as a diversionary tactic, yet diesel vehicles, including public transport is just, if not more lethal to your health! Enjoy the book, for I know you will find it to be an eye opener!

Alastair began keeping and breeding tropical fish as a hobbyist from the age of just 9 years back in 1967 (nearly 50 years ago) and has successfully bred many species. He was one of the very first Aquarists in the United Kingdom breeding cichlids from the Great Lakes (Malawi and Tanganyika) in the early and mid-nineteen-seventies. His enthusiasm as a dedicated Aquarist continues today with a number of projects underway; including the development of new biological filtration systems (Polyatomic-ion Biological Reactors), to help improve the success survival rate for keeping thriving plants with tropical fish species. Other projects include breeding a number of endangered species including original strains of the symphysodon family and other smaller indigenous species native to South America mainly inhabiting the Great River Amazon. Alastair also continues today designing and making his very own aquariums and equipment for his projects, and also endeavours to write more tropical fish hobbyist reference books as a freelance full-time author, in the interests of further serving the local and wider Community Internationally.
