Say, What’s The Worst Case Scenario For Climate Doom In 2050?

Another day, another prognostication of climate doom. This one is meant to sell a book by Christiana Figueres, who’s a massive Warmist and served as the Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. Even Warmists like Michael Mann avoid these doomy prognostications, but, they are in the minority

‘The only uncertainty is how long we’ll last’: a worst case scenario for the climate in 2050

It is 2050. Beyond the emissions reductions registered in 2015, no further efforts were made to control emissions. We are heading for a world that will be more than 3C warmer by 2100

The first thing that hits you is the air. In many places around the world, the air is hot, heavy and, depending on the day, clogged with particulate pollution. Your eyes often water. Your cough never seems to disappear. You think about some countries in Asia, where, out of consideration, sick people used to wear white masks to protect others from airborne infection. Now you often wear a mask to protect yourself from air pollution. You can no longer simply walk out your front door and breathe fresh air: there might not be any. Instead, before opening doors or windows in the morning, you check your phone to see what the air quality will be.

Fewer people work outdoors and even indoors the air can taste slightly acidic, sometimes making you feel nauseated. The last coal furnaces closed 10 years ago, but that hasn’t made much difference in air quality around the world because you are still breathing dangerous exhaust fumes from millions of cars and buses everywhere. Our world is getting hotter. Over the next two decades, projections tell us that temperatures in some areas of the globe will rise even higher, an irreversible development now utterly beyond our control. Oceans, forests, plants, trees and soil had for many years absorbed half the carbon dioxide we spewed out. Now there are few forests left, most of them either logged or consumed by wildfire, and the permafrost is belching greenhouse gases into an already overburdened atmosphere. The increasing heat of the Earth is suffocating us and in five to 10 years, vast swaths of the planet will be increasingly inhospitable to humans. We don’t know how hospitable the arid regions of Australia, South Africa and the western United States will be by 2100. No one knows what the future holds for their children and grandchildren: tipping point after tipping point is being reached, casting doubt on the form of future civilisation. Some say that humans will be cast to the winds again, gathering in small tribes, hunkered down and living on whatever patch of land might sustain them.

More moisture in the air and higher sea surface temperatures have caused a surge in extreme hurricanes and tropical storms. Recently, coastal cities in Bangladesh, Mexico, the United States and elsewhere have suffered brutal infrastructure destruction and extreme flooding, killing many thousands and displacing millions. This happens with increasing frequency now. Every day, because of rising water levels, some part of the world must evacuate to higher ground. Every day, the news shows images of mothers with babies strapped to their backs, wading through floodwaters and homes ripped apart by vicious currents that resemble mountain rivers. News stories tell of people living in houses with water up to their ankles because they have nowhere else to go, their children coughing and wheezing because of the mould growing in their beds, insurance companies declaring bankruptcy, leaving survivors without resources to rebuild their lives. Contaminated water supplies, sea salt intrusions and agricultural runoff are the order of the day. Because multiple disasters are often happening simultaneously, it can take weeks or even months for basic food and water relief to reach areas pummelled by extreme floods. Diseases such as malaria, dengue, cholera, respiratory illnesses and malnutrition are rampant.

Is that enough doom for you? Because this “edited extract” from the book The Future We Choose: Surviving the Climate Crisis continues on for many more paragraphs. And then there’s the link to the best case scenario, in which Government has banned all uses of fossil fuels, including natural gas, and banned all fossil fueled private vehicles. She fails to touch on if this means fossil fueled airplanes and ships. Those are probably only for the elites, of course. Everyone rides a bike. Unless you can afford an all electric vehicle, which is apparently powered by unicorn farts.

No mention of the massive taxes and fees required to make this “utopia” happen, nor the massive spike in the cost of living, nor that government would have to run our lives.

    Obama was a great stumper. Elections have consequences.

    Byron Pitts of ABC news said that in America we have a propensity to react negatively when people of color achieve something. Lincoln’s election led to the civil war. Jim crow laws, the KKK…etc…etc…etc. I don’t remember all his examples you could probably look it up if you like.

    So there is now blowback this time not against Blacks but against anyone who associated with Obama.

    Wiki leaks exposed The democrats in a way so shocking that even their own people could not believe their own party would do something like this and today they are back at it again.

    Pushing Bloomberg which is many times worse than trump ever pretended to be when it comes to all the bad things they say TrUMP is and was….Bloomberg is those things x10.

    Lawsuit after lawsuit by women and employees. Bloomberg was a republican, then independent and now he is trying to buy an election. All of this is a result of OBAMA and how his presidency singlehandedly destroyed the Democratic party.

    Obama himself was not a bad person, his policies driven by those with secret agendas WAS.

    This is the Blow Back of the first African American president, whose legacy was destroyed by a vile political party under which he served.

      Trump is on record as having paid off at least 16 women who threatened to sue him personally
      “Grab ‘em by the pussy” also has consequences
      Unlike Trump Bloomberg has never had so Manny of his “top men” end up disgraced or indicted or convicted
      Lol
      Full disclosure!!!
      About 15 years ago while Bloomberg was mayor he instituted a program of grants for commercial drivers to upgrade their license
      I received 2500 to attend a driving school and upgraded mine to class A tractor trailer
      This program typically paid for itself in increased wages/taxes in 5 years

      • Kye says:

        You’re gonna need to produce the “record” of 16 women who sued Trump since I can’t find it anywhere and when it comes top Trump you commies have shown yourselves to say anything and quote it as fact when it’s bullshit. BTW, he SAID “grab’em by the pussy” he didn’t DO it like Clinton, Epstein etc. did. As a card carrying leftist I wouldn’t expect you to understand there’s a difference between saying something and actually doing it.

        Unlike Trump Bloomberg has never gone up against a hostile, anti American administrative/managerial state determined to overturn his election either. How many of these convicted people actually did something wrong as opposed to being used as political fodder? Either way neither Bloomberg nor Trump is responsible for the acts of another. I know you leftists are always trying to shift responsibility but that’s not how it works in real life.

        You say “this program typically paid for itself” have you any proof it did? All you’ve told us is the taxpayers of NY paid $2500 to upgrade YOUR license so YOU could make more money. Did you ever pay the money back or was it “forgiven”? And don’t tell us you paid it back with increased taxes. Increased taxes were because of your increased income which benefited YOU and have nothing to do with repaying OUR $2500.

        John, The Tiny Tyrant Bloomberg is a royal piece of shit. Here’s just a taste of what this commie creep is:

        “NEW YORK — As Mike Bloomberg celebrated his 48th birthday in 1990, a top aide at the company he founded presented him with a booklet of profane, sexist quotes she attributed to him.
        A good salesperson is like a man who tries to pick up women at a bar by saying, “Do you want to f—? He gets turned down a lot — but he gets f—– a lot, too!” Bloomberg was quoted in the booklet as saying. Bloomberg also allegedly said that his company’s financial information computers “will do everything, including give you [oral sex]. I guess that puts a lot of you girls out of business.”
        At the time, some Bloomberg staffers said, they laughed off the comments in the 32-page booklet, “The Wit and Wisdom of Michael Bloomberg,” as a macho side of one of the nerdiest men on Wall Street.
        Read the booklet, “The Wit and Wisdom of Michael Bloomberg.” Note: The text in the booklet contains explicit language.
        But others viewed them more darkly, seeing them as blunt examples of what they considered to be a hostile environment, artifacts of a workplace employees said was saturated with degrading comments.
        Several lawsuits have been filed over the years alleging that women were discriminated against at Bloomberg’s business-information company, including a case brought by a federal agency and one filed by a former employee, who blamed Bloomberg for creating a culture of sexual harassment and degradation.
        The most high-profile case was from a former saleswoman. She sued Bloomberg personally as well as his company, alleging workplace discrimination. She alleged Bloomberg told her to “kill it” when he learned she was pregnant. Bloomberg has denied her allegation under oath, and he reached a confidential settlement with the saleswoman.
        The Washington Post interviewed a former Bloomberg employee, David Zielenziger, who said he witnessed the conversation with the saleswoman. Zielenziger, who said he had not previously spoken publicly about the matter, said Bloomberg’s behavior toward the woman was “outrageous. I understood why she took offense.”
        Garrison complaint
        89. On April 11, 1995 at approximately 11:20 a.m., Bloomberg was having a photograph taken with two female Company salespeople and a group of N.Y.U. Business School students, in the company snack area. When Bloomberg noticed Garrison standing nearby, he asked, “Why didn’t they ask you to be in the picture? I guess they saw your face.” Continuing his penchant for ridiculing recently married women in his employ, Bloomberg asked plaintiff, “How’s married life? You married?” Plaintiff responded that her marriage was great and was going to get better in a few months: that she was pregnant, and the baby was due the following September. He responded to her “Kill it!” Plaintiff asked Bloomberg to repeat himself, and again he said, “Kill it!” and muttered, “Great! Number 16!” suggesting to plaintiff his unhappiness that sixteen women in the Company had maternity-related status. Then he walked away.”

        On record according to whom?

        And paying off blackmail is not a crime. Blackmail, however, is.

        And, unlike Bloomie, Trump has actually made people’s lives better, not tried to make them more miserable.

        And, since issuing drivers’ licenses is a state function, I’d say Bloomie had nothing to do with it.

    As of today Teach the “massive” cost for an average American to go carbon neutral for one year is about $100 at the current CO2 cost of 8$ per ton
    If this was funded solely by a tax on the 500gal
    Used by the average American it would raise the price of gas by 20 cents per gal
    Meh
    This, unlike gender neutral bathrooms in Target stores, would probably not cause the downfall of Western Civilization

      @John

      Whats your plan for all that money you collect in taxes?

      It doesnt stop 1 molecule of c02 from entering the air.

      Are you trying to convince us that 100 per year is going to cut co2 in draconian ways to save the planet.

      Your so full of it.

      Whats your plan John? Come on, this is your baby, you own it. Whats your plan to save the world with that 100 buks a year?

      Universal health care? Free College? Debt Forgiveness. Your 100 dollars per person translates to 33 billion dollars per year. Your candidates want to add 6 TRILLION per year.

      Whats your plan JOHN? OWN IT DUDE!!

    • formwiz says:

      Of course it would or you wouldn’t be for it.

    • Jl says:

      John-it’s typical, but you continually advocate for that carbon tax without a shred of evidence that it would do any good. Please, enlighten us..

    Listening to Jeffery and all his cartoon characters.

    PS We still haven’t found a source of energy more efficient or more cost-effective than fossil fuels.

    And, for somebody who loves to denigrate organized religion as much as Hypocrite Hare, this is nothing but a Great Leap Backward to the Catholic Church of the Middle Ages.

    Which even Catholics renounce.
