Business World Massively Underestimating The Effects Of Climate Change

In a new study published Dec. 10 in the journal Nature Climate Change, scientists working with environmental non-profits Conservation International and the Carbon Disclosure Project report that the business world might be massively Companies are seriously underestimating how climate change will affect business on their work.

In an analysis of 1,630 companies’ corporate disclosures about the effects of climate change, the researchers found that the aggregate risk reported by companies only adds up to tens of billions of dollars, whereas most experts estimate the actual cost will climb into the trillions (pdf).. The authors note that this huge discrepancy “reflects both that a large number of companies do not report financial impacts and that many that do are probably underestimating them.”

Where Do You Go When There Is Nothing Left?

The terrible tragedy that has befallen the town and people of Paradise, CA has created an enormous number of climate refugees in the Golden State. The wildfire was heavily influenced by extended drought conditions and was probably unavoidable. It is these kinds of tragedies that I’ve been warning about over the years. Now the deadliest wildfire in the past 100 years, what happened to Paradise bodes ill-warnings for many other parts of the country gripped by drought.

Collective Failure

[This is another previously written unpublished post from about two years ago. Still applicable, more then ever – Admin]

The public cannot discern between truth or fiction. The many lies, deceptions, distortions, omissions and outright fabrications being extolled are as  unperceived as whatever actual truths are being told. What this means is we’re in a particular point in human history where any kind of narrative (story) can be deemed real. Whatever the truth actually is, has become irrelevant to the narrative being promoted because almost nobody is capable of staying (verbalizing) on the truth. Any kind of narrative is now acceptable communication.

The Biosphere is Dying

Two articles to share:

Ocean Shock – the planet’s hidden climate change

Humanity has wiped out 60% of animal populations since 1970

These are topics of great importance and significance for the future survivability of the human race, but they’re also going to be broadly ignored. We cannot seem to bring ourselves to address our faults, and those inherent in the civilization we’ve constructed.

Trump Approves America’s Energy Addiction – Drilling In Arctic Waters

For someone who claims he’s a “genius” but incessantly lies thousands and thousands of times now, we could reasonably expect the man and his Administration to go on lying about the environment and climate change. Which is of course, what they’ve been doing since he took office.

Now they want to drill for oil in the Arctic waters. What could possibly go wrong? More to the point – does anybody even care anymore? Continuing to feed the gusher demand for oil is alleged to be on the pathway to “energy independence” but in reality, it is a crack-like addiction to hell by planet-destroying companies who’s only real motive is profits.

October 2018 Update

I’ve been dragging my feet on posting a new blog report (sorry). There’s just too much going on right now to add to the mix. I paid very close attention to the Kavanaugh hearings (guilty as charged) and am in shock with at least half the nation that this serial sexual abuser was confirmed to the Supreme Court.

A lot of things did NOT happen as they should have. Only 9 witnesses were ‘interviewed’ by the FBI after the week-long delay on the hearings was requested (and Christine Ford was NOT one of them). Trump directly interfered with the witness list and who the FBI could and could not talk to during this “delay”. In retrospect, that was their plan (the Rape Party) all along, and now we know why. Nearly 50 additional witnesses offered to come forward and testify against Kavanaugh – not a single one of these people were interviewed in the ‘allowed’ period. But several published their statements in the newspapers anyway.

Climate Thoughts

Some thoughts on what humanity is facing as the world continues to warm…

The climate won’t “stabilize” for a very, very long time, far, far past the lifespans of your great, great, great, great, great, great, great… well, you get the idea. Therefore, humanity should be making mitigation and adaption efforts the #1 priority right now, with a focus on food production in a hellish world at the top of a very long list of “to do’s”.

The Carbon Future

We now, in the year 2018, have a carbon problem of such gargantuan size and severity that it now presents an extinction level threat to most, if not all life on Earth no matter what we now do.

This problem remains totally unsolved. This dilemma facing all of humanity, indeed all of life on Earth is truly monumental. It staggers our ability to imagine the scale, scope and complexity of this threat. We’re still trying to come to grips with what this really means. Numerous past articles have tried to do exactly that – this is yet another attempt.

What Lies Beneath (all the lies and disinformation)

There is always more in the news on climate. And it is always bad – if you toss out the false claims, invisible technology and false hopium that is usually interjected into these articles.

If you just stick to the known facts, you will quickly realize that we’re still not being told the whole scope of the problem facing humanity. By now, you will probably also realize that this withholding has been deliberate for many, many years.

Musings About Losing Earth

Ho hum… there has been a lot going on since the last time I bothered to weigh in on climate collapse. Vast swaths of California are still burning, as is my own region, and in British Columbia. The air so thick with smoke here, visibility is down to 100 yards, and the most of the fires are hundreds of miles away. But the real news is the useless discussion going on about a New York Time’s article, “Losing Earth“.

143 Million People May Soon Become Climate Migrants

I’ve been warning about this for years: 143 Million People May Soon Become Climate Migrants

Worth reading. The actual number is 2 billion or so. But not before the first several hundred million show up… somewhere.

The United States is not immune to climate refugees of our own, either. The entire Deep South and Southwest will become uninhabitable as wet-bulb temperatures exceed human survivability. No amount of cooling will be possible to make living in these locations doable.

More Reality

The Troubling Realities of Our Energy Transition – Some food for thought, but it does not actually go far enough.

Even worldwide economic collapse won’t save the climate from the most extreme warming. This is a topic that has already been covered elsewhere. Economic collapse will lead to additional climate pollution – not less.

The refusal to admit to the climate crisis, and the baked-in-results (4C+) that cannot be avoided under any conceivable circumstances, and what this actually means for global food production (collapse) has created widespread blindness (and endless hopium) to this global crisis. We do not have years or even months left to “solve climate change”. We cannot solve it. Ever. We can only now prepare for the effects. Which we’re also failing to do.

Future Fisheries Deception

Global fisheries to be, on average, 20 percent less productive in 2300, study finds

This article contains numerous misrepresentations and omissions.

a) Global fisheries are already down over 50% NOW.
b) A temperature rise of 4C will result in a catastrophic collapse of civilization.
c) A 9.6C increase will literally mean human extinction (long before).
d) The resulting food chain collapse @4C or even 9C will mean massive species extinction of all mammals. It is also extremely unlikely that any fish will survive at the higher temperatures.

Finding Hope – Not!

Desdemona shared a good article from a climate scientist: We need courage, not hope, to face global warming – “Hope is a creature of privilege” (source here).

These words by Kate really resonate with me. It is deep grief that I feel – every single day now. But despite Kate’s own words – she has refused to allow my comments below to be published. So ask yourself – who is faking their grief, and who is not?

Eyewitness to the Future

There’s a few good points in this article I’d recommend you read – This is how your world could end

At first, I thought this was going to be another pathetic attempt to describe how we’re going to survive the warming of the planet. And in some ways, it does exactly that, while getting several of the projections off by several decades (it won’t be 2050, more like 2020). But it also explains a few critical points worth reading (while missing things like wet-bulb temperatures and global crop losses and starvation at just 4C):

The Land Of Zombies

According to this study, Extreme Weather Can’t Change Climate Change Beliefs, even hurricanes will not change beliefs about climate change.

Those in denial stay in denial, no matters how fast the waters rise.

So this is going to mean what I’ve long suspected. Nothing much will actually get done about climate change, thereby committing the world to absolute, total catastrophe. There will be endless talk and discussion and a little action, but overall, we will refuse to accept reality.
