Bummer: Global Temps Might Possibly Maybe Blow Past Paris Climate Agreement Limit Within 5 Years

I should put a reminder on this post for 5 years to see if it comes to pass

Global temperatures could pass limit set by Paris climate deal within 5 years

Global temperatures could surpass a limit set by the Paris climate agreement within the next five years, according to a new forecast by British scientists.

At least one year in the next five could exceed the threshold the deal set of limiting warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius, or 2.7 degrees Fahrenheit, above pre-industrial levels, the forecast from the United Kingdom’s Met Office says. It’s now likely temperatures will exceed 1 degree Celsius, or 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit, as soon as 2022.

“It is the first time that such high values have been highlighted within these forecasts,” the Met Office said in a statement.

The Paris agreement aims to limit warming well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit it even further to 1.5 degrees Celsius by gradually reducing emissions of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane, which come from the burning of fossil fuels such as oil, coal and natural gas.

Global average temperatures already have neared the 1 degree Celsius mark over the past three years. That combined with continued warming from greenhouse gases and natural variations in temperatures means it’s possible for the world to temporarily exceed the 1.5 degree Celsius mark in the next five years, said Stephen Belcher, chief scientist at the Met Office.

One does have to admire the constant scaremongering combined with an included out through weasel words like “could” and “might”. That’s not science.

    The climate change predictions have been as on-the-money as Ehrlich’s population bomb predictions. Lefties love them some drama, especially if there are tax dollars attached to it.

    The Con Men should celebrate. You’ve won.

    The Earth will continue to rapidly warm unabated. All because of your efforts!

    Saudi Aramco and Exxon will reward your efforts by raising gas prices.

    Yay!

      You’re right, the earth is no longer fit for human life. Fortunately we Con Men are sub-human so we’ll thrive. You, on the other hand…

    I’m on a construction job by the Cardinals stadium and the global warming is almost unbearable. It was so bad that they called work for 3 weeks in January.
