Young People’s Burden

There is a lot of important information in this video.

The only hope for a human-survivable Earth is technological removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere – which in itself will create more carbon emissions. Borrowing from Peter to pay Paul is a situation we never wanted to be in.

Mad Scientist

It was Joe Romm himself (not a scientist) and many climate scientist that kept spewing the 2°C nonsense for years and years.  Their own blinders now (finally) being removed, NOW they claim that this is dangerous – and yet they STILL pretend that we can limit warming under 2°C!

I have always found Romm refusing to admit to the horrible truth. He gets plenty of press coverage and has plenty of opportunity to tell us like it really is – and yet he still weakly pretends that we are still going to be ok.[...] Read More

Inside Story – Climate change: Can disaster be avoided?

Plenty of false hopium found here (can’t post the video directly): Inside Story – Climate change: Can disaster be avoided?

The cities of the future are prominent. No discussion (of course) of limiting human growth levels. And the “climate deniers” in a “limited number of countries” just happens to include some of the worst polluting countries on the planet, USA, Australia, England. You’d think we were actually all one country, following the Orange Monkey to Disneyland.[...] Read More

More Fun Times Ahead

New studies reveal: Soils could release much more carbon than expected as climate warms

A 30% – 34% increase in carbon release from warming soils was measured in a test plot. This represents a huge increase in carbon release into the atmosphere, if applied around the world it’s an amount equal to 30% annually of all human emissions.

And to add to the joyful fun ahead, Computer models show possible impact to world’s oceans of four major stressors due to climate change[...] Read More

Massive Permafrost Thaw Documented in Canada, Portends Huge Carbon Release

Desdemona has a new article, Massive Permafrost Thaw Documented in Canada, Portends Huge Carbon Release, with the original article here. I don’t comment on Desdemona anymore, Jim started censoring commentary some time back.

This type of melting was expected and would account for the escalating levels of methane being detected. Once you grasp the scale of what’s happening, you’ll quickly realize that it is virtually impossible for this process to reverse itself. You’d have to have a seriously long deep-freeze to restore the frozen soil temperatures – and then you’d still be left with the billions of tons of CO₂ and methane still left in the atmosphere, raising temperatures higher and higher.[...] Read More

You Will Either Live Through This, or You Will Die Because Of It. But You Will Not Be Able To Ignore It.

The large majority of people from scientists to policy makers addressing the issue of climate change still assert that we can stop global heating by reducing emissions of greenhouse gases. But is this a fact or an unsupported assumption?

Why is it reasonable to assume that we can still stop global heating & the resultant climate changes, which some estimate could be the largest climate change event in 50 million years, and will end civilization as we’ve known it even with a 100% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions tomorrow, let alone 50% by 2050?[...] Read More

Review: 10 Most Important Climate Stories of 2016

This is the time of year when bloggers and websites will publish their 2016 Year in Review, Photo essays and other dubious human “achievements” for 2016. I am not going to bother because by and large, it’s all bullshit. Under-reporting our global crisis is not what I do.

I like Climate Central, so this isn’t a slight against their efforts. But it is very, very important that we not get enamored with bogus “achievements” (hopium) that do not accomplish what is claimed. So here are the 10 Most Important Climate Stories of 2016 from Climate Central.[...] Read More

Fait Accompli

Here’s a failure to comprehend video:

Do I dare comment? Of course I will.

“most of the change to come should be mostly within our ability to control”

This video is pure speculative hogwash. Hopium on steroids. This is another disappointing video that proposes to downplay the seriousness of the unfolding climate emergency.

His time frames are way off. For example, the Arctic is now (in the past few days) showing 50F temperature increases above normal, whereas he’s claiming the 2099 for a new average.[...] Read More
