Here is the latest news on what we can expect:
2,000 islands gone within 23 years. And that’s just in India.
Sea levels will continue to rise for at least 1,000 years – no matter what we do.
The number of refugees will number in the hundreds of millions.
Global temperatures will rise no matter what we do – and won’t decline for at least 200 years.
No breaking news yet on what this might mean to the global food supply – but not that hard to figure out. Does “global famine” ring any bells with anyone?
This Friday will “tell all” on what the real impacts are expected to be.
I’m taking no pleasure whatsoever in having reached the same conclusions as these 2,000 scientist from around the world. Even with a immediate and massive, coordinated global effort, we’re going to see some dramatic and life-threatening changes.
Just imagine what property values and investment values on the world’s islands are going to be after this makes the news and maybe, finally, somehow, penetrates the public conciousness. But I’m thinking it will take an asteroid the size of the one in Deep Impact to penetrate the sombelent state of the public before they wake up and notice what the hell has been going on.
Yeah, I’m angry. I’m still seeing moronic posters arguing the “fine point” of whether or not global warming is real, and whether or not it’s caused or enhanced by human activity. They’ll probably still be arguing over it as the water rises over their heads.
