Your Fault: Earth Is Really Quite Sick

The word went out for all the media outlets to publish their fearmongering. Remember when some Warmists said “please stop with the doom and gloom, it isn’t helping”? Yeah, most cultists ignore that, so you get things like

Earth is ‘really quite sick now’ and in danger zone in nearly all ecological ways, study says

Earth has pushed past seven out of eight scientifically established safety limits and into “the danger zone,” not just for an overheating planet that’s losing its natural areas, but for the well-being of people living on it, according to a new study.

The study looks not just at guardrails for the planetary ecosystem but for the first time it includes measures of “justice,” which is mostly about preventing harm for countries, ethnicities and genders.

The study by the international scientist group Earth Commission published in Wednesday’s journal Nature looks at climate, air pollution, phosphorus and nitrogen contamination of water from fertilizer overuse, groundwater supplies, fresh surface water, the unbuilt natural environment and the overall natural and human-built environment. Only air pollution wasn’t quite at the danger point globally.

The first link about identifying is the actual Nature article, heavily paywalled. You’d think if it was just so darned important they’d make it available to everyone. You’d also think that if this was about science they would not be including a non-scientific notion of “justice”, which is incredibly arbitrary in this manner.

The study found “hotspots” of problem areas throughout Eastern Europe, South Asia, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, parts of Africa and much of Brazil, Mexico, China and some of the U.S. West — much of it from climate change. About two-thirds of Earth don’t meet the criteria for freshwater safety, scientists said as an example.

Clean water is an entirely separate issue from ‘climate change’, and it causes quite a bit of harm to the environmental movement when environmental issues are linked to climate doom, or placed under the climate banner.

“We are in a danger zone for most of the Earth system boundaries,” said study co-author Kristie Ebi, a professor of climate and public health at the University of Washington.

If planet Earth just got an annual checkup, similar to a person’s physical, “our doctor would say that the Earth is really quite sick right now and it is sick in terms of many different areas or systems and this sickness is also affecting the people living on Earth,” Earth Commission co-chair Joyeeta Gupta, a professor of environment at the University of Amsterdam, said at a press conference.

    so why are none of the climate activists over in China trying to convince the worlds number one polluter to change their ways and give up their life style???
    oh, yea, China is already communist.

  2. Carlos the Jackal says:

    All those places have also hosted major conflicts, with disasters of mismanagement by governments; Deliberate environmental sabotage, burning oil fields, nuclear accidents, chemical releases, DU ammo, etc.
    But I’m sure none of that would have anything to do with the results of their “studies”.

  3. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Overall, China IS the problem.

    China has 18% of the world’s population but some 30% of the world’s CO2 emissions. The US’s 4% of the world’s population generates some 12% of the CO2.

    In 1850 global CO2 emissions were 0.2 billion tons, in 1950 were 6 billion tons/yr and today 34 billion tons/yr. From 1950 to today atmospheric CO2 has increased from 300ppm to 420ppm.

    Analysis: China’s CO2 emissions hit Q1 record high after 4% rise in early 2023

    China is burning more coal to meet peak electrical demands which resulted from increasing industrial activity and people returning to offices. As transportation increased, oil consumption increased. Drought has also reduced hydroelectric generation.

    But not all is gloom from China:

    … renewables and nuclear, passed 50% of China’s installed power capacity for the first time, overtaking coal and other fossil fuel-based capacity.

    Solar installations increased to a record 34 gigawatts (GW) in the first three months of the year, nearly tripling the previous high of 13GW in the same period of 2022.

    New wind power installations also reached a record for the first quarter. The 10.4GW added in the three months to March 2023 was an increase of 32% over the period in 2022.

    … nuclear power plant approvals and construction have also sped up. By the end of 2020, China had 50GW in operation and 16GW under construction.

    With 27GW of capacity under construction and 57GW in operation, the country is on track to have 70GW in operation and 30GW under construction by 2025.

      Got study??

        • drowningpuppies says:

          Oh look. Rimjob posted an irrelevant citation.
          Now post the one that proves CO2 causes climate change/global warming.

          Bwaha! Lolgf

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            We were asked for a study to support the levels of CO2 emissions over time.

            The theory that atmospheric CO2 is causing global warming cannot be “proved”. Theories are not proven but are accepted when the available supportive evidence make it intellectually untenable to doubt it.

            What is your hypothesis to explain global warming?

          • drowningpuppies says:

            It’s not a scientific theory but you already know that, dipshit.
            You just want to get into another of your asinine arguments.

            Bwaha! Lolgf

        • James Lewis says:

          Dear Elwood:

          “We can calculate the contribution of the average citizen of each country by dividing its total emissions by its population. This gives us CO2 emissions per capita. In the visualization we see the differences in per capita emissions across the world.”

          How can they measure the CO2 emitted amount in 1850 by the citizens of Egypt??

          What this is is fake science.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Dear James,

            Piss off.

          • James Lewis says:

            Dear Elwood:

            Come now, don’t be a shit. Just tell us how/where/when the “bullshit” that your link uses to make all those pretty charts/graphs. etc., come from.

            Do you understand GIGO?????

  4. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Is the conspiracy tale that Chinese communists are behind the entire global warming scam?

    The Chinese communist are paying the non-Chinese commies (Dems, EU libs, Vatican, corporations, governments, scientists etc) to disable the non-Chinese world by transitioning to renewables?

    All the while, Chinese communists will use all the coal and oil to dominate the world and only the American right-wing sees through the scam?

    • James Lewis says:

      Dear Elwood:

      Piss off.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Charming, per usual…

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        I give you non-hypothesis driven guys a free hypothesis to explain global warming (i.e., the ChiComs are faking the data and paying the gullible commies to push the narrative). In addition, I give you complete credit for seeing through it, and you say to “piss off”.

        What is your hypothesis?

  5. david7134 says:

    There is no evidence whatsoever as CO2 doing anything to the climate. There is no evidence that reducing CO2 will do anything other than destruction of our economy and way of life. It is not necessary for us to determine the reason for climate change, we don’t know what causes ice ages. When commenters refer to atmospheric gases as tons, that has no reference to weight measures as we U.S. them.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      When commenters refer to atmospheric gases as tons, that has no reference to weight measures as we U.S. (sic) them.

      One ton of carbon dioxide solid occupies a cube 2.7 ft x 2.7 ft x 2.7 ft!

      If you let that ton of carbon dioxide sublimate (solid –> gas) that

      one ton of carbon dioxide gas at STP occupies a cube 26 ft x 26 ft x 26 ft!

      If you refreeze that one ton of carbon dioxide gas, the dry ice will occupy 2.7 ft x 2.7 ft x 2.7 ft.

      • david7134 says:

        I told you not to reply to me. Nothing I said in any way was intended as a response to you.

        You have violated Federal law and constantly allude to a desire to sue everyone here.

        • drowningpuppies says:

          But David he’s a “giver” so the rules of decency do not apply to him.
          He’s “special”.

          Bwaha! Lolgf

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:


          You have once again lied. I violated no federal law, and you know it.

          You repeated the nonsense that a pound of carbon dioxide doesn’t weigh a pound!!

          I told you I would correct your lies.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:


          And as I told your buddy, dp, if you feel I committed a federal crime you should contact the authorities. Otherwise you’re defaming me.

  6. david7134 says:

    You are wrong on your comments. As I said I prefer not to engage you. Ask your attorney what that means. As to your crime,that is my opinion based on the information I have.

    • L'Roy White says:

      To quote Foghorn Leghorn: “There’s something wrong with that boy.” LG Brandon has the same problem, david7134. No matter how many times he asks the dude to disengage the guy won’t stop. It’s some sort of leftist pathology where they think their opinion has value and must be inserted everywhere.
