Paris Followup

Told you so – The Paris Climate Talks and the 1.5 °C Target: Wartime-Scale Mobilization is Our Only Option Left

Worth reading if anybody cares.

From Paris – a perspective from some scientists:

Paris deal: Epic fail on a planetary scale

Centuries of Melting Already Locked in for Polar Ice, Scientists Say

Post Paris

It’s painfully clear that global leaders remains truly clueless and disconnected from what is really unfolding on the ground – despite the escalating disasters being reported around the world. Lip service and empty promises still rule the day. It’s rather discouraging – but I’m a pessimist and did not expect anything else. Human nature being what it is, we’re poorly suited to respond to something that is threatening our survival “down the road”.

Note all the time frames being discussed when it comes to climate discussion – always “years down the road” with no cognizant recognition of disasters already unfolding. This disconnect that people are dying and suffering right now is bizarre.

Personally, I think that we’re going to see some very rapid climate change events occur because we’ve tipped past multiple trigger-events. As this unfolds, the rhetoric and shouting on both sides of the fence is going to increase. The world will be thrown into a panic. And I’m not looking forward to that.

It’s a planetary emergency but it’s still unrecognized. And frankly, decades too late.

    If we could but only harvest all the gas being emitted by the facially flatulating class(es) we could …er … ‘power’ the world, … carbon neutral too. Oh No, Instead we’re being drowned in exponentially greater tsunamis of Similiforme stool samples, each leaving the indelible Carbonaceous skid mark called ‘ civilization’ – aka ‘progress’ – everywhere every day, every time … planetary suicide until the last monkey farts (and far beyond) – and still it won’t give a fuck – while fervently beseeching, nay praising its favored god of the cosmic carton club pantheon right up to the bitter, fetid, wretched end. Can I get an Amen? PreyZ Geezuz
