I’ve been mulling over whether to post this or not. The AMEG Strategic Plan lays out the case for collapse (very soon) pretty clearly, and the need to respond immediately.
I think there are a lot of omissions in the plan and a whole lot of “I sure as hell hope this works” sort of things.
You should read it.
I doubt very much that anything now is going to avert the massive coming famine [which they underestimate], as crops are one of the weakest and easily affected areas to be impacted.
I’ve been working on another post for a few days, pinning down the known developments with climate science and what it all actually means (in their own words, not mine, so it has far greater credibility).
My conclusions are scary as hell, so much so that I am seriously considering this as my last blog post forever. The reason I would do that is it would absolutely pointless to waste another moment in time online.
I haven’t made my final decision yet. But to quote from the link above. Brackets are mine:
The international community is totally unprepared for the speed of change in the Arctic, the dramatic effects on global climate and the dire repercussions on food production. [very true]
The tendency among scientists and the media has been to ignore or understate the seriousness of the situation in the Arctic. [unbelievably true] AMEG is using best available evidence and best available explanations for the processes at work. These processes include a number of vicious cycles which are growing in power exponentially, involving ocean, atmosphere, sea ice, snow, permafrost and methane. If these cycles are allowed to continue, the end result will be runaway global warming. [already happening]
The situation is so urgent that, unless appropriate action is taken within a few months, the window of opportunity will be lost. Adaptation to the consequences will be impossible, as famine spreads inexorably to all countries. [occurring now]
My greatest fear is exactly what we are seeing — continued denial, disbelief, cognitive dissonance, anger, fear and the seriously misguided belief that “it cannot happen to us“.
Well, it IS happening to us all, faster and faster. I now view trying to wake up the foot dragging idiots as a complete waste of time, they’ll find out soon enough.
