Earth Will Become Uninhabitable Unless We Use Mostly Not Invented Technology To Suck CO2 From The Atmosphere

I’d like to say that the scary prognostications will increase with Biden winning (let’s face it, the fix is in, and it is a very long shot for Trump to pull it out), but, they never really end from the Cult of Climastrology. They’re also used to ramping it up a bit this time of year, ahead of the normally held UN IPPC Conference on the Parties. And here’s some doom

Any hope of keeping Earth habitable now requires sucking carbon back out of the atmosphere, a new study found

Even if we stopped emitting greenhouse gas today, the Earth would continue warming for centuries. Arctic ice and permafrost are already on an irreversible path of melting.

That’s the finding of new research published Thursday in the journal Scientific Reports. The model suggests that even if emissions were to drop to zero this year, global temperatures would ultimately rise to be 5.4 degrees Fahrenheit higher in 2500 than they were in 1850 (that’s 3 degrees Celsius).

“The tundra will continue to melt over the next 500 years — irrespective of how quickly humanity cuts its greenhouse-gas emissions,” Jørgen Randers, the lead author of the new study, told Business Insider.

That’s because climate change is a vicious, self-sustaining cycle: As permafrost thaws, it releases more greenhouse gases, like methane and carbon dioxide, which sustains warming over time. To stop that cycle, Randers said, we’ll need to suck carbon dioxide back out of the atmosphere.

That’s because this is the natural process of an interglacial period, no reason to blame witchcraft, but, hey, we can stop the natural processes of Earth by implementing tech that, other than trees, plants, and plankton, doesn’t really exist.

Randers’ study modeled the effect of various emissions-reductions scenarios on Earth’s climate between 1850 and 2500.

The data showed that if emissions stopped for good in 2020, sea levels in 2500 would still be more than 8 feet (2.5 meters) higher than in 1850.

Interestingly, that is exactly the amount of sea rise one would expect during a Holocene warm period. There should be a foot to a foot and a half of rise per century. But, too many people are too stupid and won’t take the time to do research, and the Warmists know this and can turn the Scary Screws.

To prevent the projected 3-degree-Celsius temperature increase, greenhouse-gas emissions would need to have ceased entirely between 1960 and 1970, the model found. In that sense, Earth blew by a climactic point of no return 50 years ago — before much of the public understood the realities of climate change.

So, if it’s too late, why are we bothering to talk about this? Oh, right, to institute Big Government, lots of government control of everything, and taxes/fees.

What’s needed, Randers said, is for companies and governments to “start developing the technologies for large-scale removal of greenhouse gases from the atmosphere.”

In technical terms, that strategy is known as carbon capture and storage (CCS). To prevent further warming after emissions have stopped, the new study found, at least 33 gigatonnes (36.5 billion tons) of carbon dioxide would need to be sucked out of the atmosphere each year. That’s roughly the total amount of carbon dioxide the global fossil-fuel industry emitted in 2018 (36 gigatonnes).

Power plants in the US, Canada, and Switzerland have already started utilizing CCS to lower their emissions. In 2014, the Boundary Dam Power Station in Saskatchewan became one of the first in the world to successfully use the technology.

Most of these are experimental, and don’t really do much. But, hey, why bother? It’s too late, right?

    I’ll just quote “what percentage of co2 is produced by humans” used for a Google Search.

    “In fact, carbon dioxide, which is blamed for climate warming, has only a volume share of 0.04 percent in the atmosphere. And of these 0.04 percent CO2, 95+ percent come from natural sources, such as volcanoes or decomposition processes in nature. The human CO2 content in the air is thus only 0.0016 percent. Jan 25, 2018”

    We need to bring Mother Nature to trial for Co2 pollution.
    But of course if we lock her up…. Who will make the Air we breath?☺

    Well at least teach now agrees that we are warming and not tgat we have been cooling since 1998
    Teach why do you think we are getting warmer ? Or is tgat just a mystery, like the HolyTrinity ?

  3. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Teach typed: Biden winning (let’s face it, the fix is in, and it is a very long shot for Trump to pull it out)

    Teach Kool-Aid, another worshiper at the foot of the Dalai Trumpa, can’t imagine that his god-king was dethroned. It happened. On Jan 20 he becomes another carnival barker but with an army of 70 million devotee cult.

    TEACH, do you have evidence that the “fix is in”?

  4. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    The rapid increase in atmospheric CO2 is not natural. The increase is not from volcanoes or rotting trees or oceans or beer or human respiration. CO2 has increased from the burning of fossil fuels (coal, oil, gas).

    Before the industrial revolution CO2 stayed between 200 and 300 ppm for hundreds of thousands of years but now it’s over 410 ppm.

    Human activity disrupted the balance of the carbon cycle.

  5. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    161,000+ new cases of Covid-19 yesterday. Hospitalizations have saturated many hospitals. Some 1500 deaths yesterday alone.

    But Mr Trump can’t be bothered as he has a post-presidential life to plot.

    Poor trump, the 2020 experience: caught Covid, was furloughed and will soon be evicted.

    • President Elect Kye says:

      You really believe this propaganda or are you just fukin with us? There has been no appreciable increase in either American deaths or world wide deaths since this scamdemic began. None. Therefore, people are dying of other things but you commies are labeling them Red Chinese Democommie Cuomo Flu deaths. It’s all bullshit.

      Somehow you idiots believe the President of the United States can stop a flu. Sorry, that’s not in his job description. Maybe your hero Joe and the Howe can? Then why don’t they? One needs not be President to help humanity so they must be as unable as Trump or just plain evil to let Americans die.

      How many dump trucks have you seen taking theses 1500 dead away?

      You are all pathological liars.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Kye,

        You may not realize it, but in our large nation of some 330 million people, some 7000 Americans die EVERY DAY when Covid isn’t running through the population. So where are the dump trucks with all those bodies?? So what is your argument? The pandemic is a scam because you don’t see bodies in the street?

        The Covid virus is very contagious, has no available vaccine (yet) and is more deadly than influenza.

        Donald Trump lost the election fair and square.

        CO2 is causing the Earth to warm.

        There is no plot by Dems, libs, media and Hollywood to kidnap children, violate them and drink their blood or eat their adrenal glands.

    ‘“The rapid increase of CO2 isn’t natural”. How would you know, seeing as we don’t have comparable data for the other 150 year periods during the last 4.5 billion yrs? You don’t. “Human activity disrupted the balance of the carbon cycle”. False, because what’s the “balance” of the carbon cycle, seeing as at times the balance was 10-15 times higher than now? “Before the industrial revolution CO2 stayed between 200 and 300ppm for hundreds of thousands of years”. So? Primates, of which we are one, developed between 55 and 65 million yrs ago.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      The increase in atmospheric CO2 is 1) consistent with the amount of CO2 emitted and 2) the ratio of carbon isotopes found in fossil fuels is increasing in the atmosphere. Are you arguing that fossil fuels are “naturally” evaporating into CO2 in the atmosphere? What evidence do you have to support that the rapid increase in CO2 is natural?

      Actually, hominids are several million years old, homo sapiens less than one million.

      The entirety of the evolution of human civilization (settlements, agriculture, governments, recorded history) has occurred in the last 12,000 years or so.

    “What evidence do u have that the rapid increase in CO2 is natural”. That’s not how it works in science, J. The person making the assertion (rapid increase in CO2, you) is the one that must come up with the evidence. I said unless you have comparable data from all the other 150 yr periods in earths history, you have no idea if this is rapid or not, which is true. And on top of that, I never said it wasn’t natural or not-I said it wasn’t known. “Actually, hominids are several million yrs old, Homo sapiens less than one million.”. Thanks for the lesson, but I never said otherwise. I said primates appeared 55-65 million yrs ago. But so much for your reading comprehension… “The entirety of human civilization has occurred in the last 12,00 yrs or so.” Yes, and human adaptation and standard of living have gone up all along. So?
