If We Don’t Do Something About ‘Climate Change’ We’re Doomed In 10 Years Or Something

I thought we were already doomed 20 years ago? And 15 years ago? And 10? 5? Today? Or was it in 2100 or 2050? Anyhow, the same experts who prognosticated doom which didn’t come to pass are still doing it

Painfully slow hurricanes, deadly heat, and cities without water: What the climate crisis will look like in the next 10 years, according to experts

We only have a decade to avoid the worst consequences of climate change.

That’s the warning the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) put out last year. But so far, nations are not slashing emissions enough to keep Earth’s temperature from rising more than 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels — the threshold established in the Paris climate agreement.

“What we know is that unabated climate change will really transform our world into something that is unrecognizable,” Kelly Levin, a senior associate at the World Resources Institute’s climate program, told Business Insider.

Doom!

If Earth warms more than 1.5 degrees, scientists think the world’s ecosystems could start to collapse.

If ifs and buts were candies and nuts we’d all have a wonderful Christmas. What happens when the temperature doesn’t rise to 1.5C? We’re only at .6C since 1850.

Even if nations stick to the goals they set under the Paris climate agreement, emissions will still likely be too high, according to the IPCC.

Wait, I thought Paris was historic and awesome. No?

So far, most countries are not on track anyway.

So then what’s the problem with the U.S. pulling out?

The globe’s ice caps will continue to melt, and crucial ice sheets like the one in Greenland might start down an irreversible path toward disappearing completely.

Like they’ve been doing since the end of the ice age 20,000 years ago?

That will lead to more sea-level rise — about 0.3 to 0.6 feet on average globally by 2030, according to the US’ National Climate Assessment.

The norm, once again, is 6-8 inches of sea rise per century over the last 8,000 years, so, that sounds entirely average. Anyway, the doomy prognostications continue on and on and on, and, remember, this is all about science, not politics

“That means we need politicians who are willing to act in our interest rather than on the part of vested interests,” Mann said. “Voting in the 2020 election is probably the single-most important thing we can do to address climate change.”

Huh.

    There’s been 10 years left for the last 30 years.

    Anybody still buying the used food should not vote or breed. he will have insufficient brainpower.

    I thought we had 12 years. Now I have to readjust my schedule. They really should get this down, we do have plans.

    • Doom and Gloom says:

      oh in 10 years or perhaps 12. anyway. In 10 years it will be too late to do anything. So we have 10 years from today to save the world by giving medicare for all, free college, debt forgiveness and free government jobs. If we also MAKE everyone remodel their houses and eliminate half the jobs in the world for free government jobs and just give people free money who dont want to work.

      THAT.

      WILL STOP THE SEAS FROM RISING.

      AND THAT

      Will save us.

    So, the oceans will rise maybe 7 inches by 2030! Thank the Lord we sold our house in Virginia, at 12½ feet above sea level and moved to the farm, where our house sits at 640 feet above sea level! https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_cool.gif
