Time for some other important news:
Scientists: Trump climate policies will mean “game over”. Climate change may be escalating so fast it could be ‘game over’, scientists warn.
It is a vision of a future so apocalyptic that it is hard to even imagine.
But, if leading scientists writing in one of the most respected academic journals are right, planet Earth could be on course for global warming of more than seven degrees Celsius within a lifetime.
A new study claims there’s been a “major underestimate” by researchers on how large and how fast temperatures will increase. 7°C is “game over” for civilization. We’re certain to burn much more then all the past ‘estimates’ too, since new policies will be enacted to expand energy production. So don’t even expect this new study to be accurate because it’s not.
But wait, there’s more (there’s always more):
Donald Trump has selected one of the best-known climate skeptics to lead his U.S. EPA transition team, according to two sources close to the campaign.
The only ‘surprise’ here is the bubble on the left that thought humans would find a way to turn down the heat. That was never going to happen.
“There’s a misconception that we’ve begun to address the climate problem,” said Hansen, who brought climate change into the public arena through his testimony to the US congress in the 1980s. “This misapprehension is based on the Paris climate deal where governments clapped themselves on the back but when you look at the science it doesn’t compute, it’s not true.
“Even with optimistic assumptions (future emissions reduction) will cost hundreds of trillions of dollars. It’s potentially putting young people in charge of a situation that is beyond their control. It’s not clear they will be able to take such actions.”
The reality is this: the world has long since bequethed an unbearable hell upon any future generations. The illusion that this could be avoided was always imaginary, just like the claims from denialists that the planet isn’t warming up.
Reality is going to be a bitch with a blow-torch on starving hordes.
