Desdemona has shared an article that is of extreme importance to the entire world: Super-heatwaves of 55°C to emerge if global warming continues – “Humid-heat waves with these conditions were never exceeded in the present climate, but are expected to occur EVERY OTHER YEAR at 4°C global warming”
Heatwaves amplified by high humidity can reach above 40°C and may occur as often as every two years, leading to serious risks for human health. If global temperatures rise with 4°C, a new super heatwave of 55°C can hit regularly many parts of the world, including Europe.
However, if temperatures rise to 4°C a severe scenario is on the horizon. Scientists predict that a new super-heatwave will appear with apparent temperature peaking at above 55°C– a level critical for human survival. It will affect densely populated areas such as USA’s East coast, coastal China, large parts of India and South America. Under this global warming scenario Europe is likely to suffer annual heatwaves with apparent temperature of above 40°C regularly while some regions of Eastern Europe may be hit by heatwaves of above 55°C.
I’ve been warning about this for years now. Wet-bulb temperatures will exceed human survival. There was zero to none interest. But it was already evident from my own research and the data contained within science publications. I’ve shared that here on many occasions.
According to the study, the effect of relative humidity on heatwaves’ magnitude and peak might be underestimated in current research. The results of the study support the need for urgent mitigation and adaptation action to address the impacts of heatwaves, and indicate regions where new adaptation measures might be necessary to cope with heat stress.
You don’t “adapt” to 55°C – you die. And so do all the animals, plants and fish. Those elements that cannot leave, that cannot escape this level of heat and humidity will simply not survive.
This means no food – a theme I have desperately tried to get people to wake up to. There will be no crops that can survive these temperatures, wherever they may occur. No crops, no livestock, no food. Humans taking shelter in these regions will quickly starve once their food supplies are exhausted. Along with heat related deaths, there will be riots and extreme levels of violence as competition for resources increases dramatically. I’ve warned and warned and warned about all of this and more for years. Get ready for massive die-off – and that will include the vast majority of my blog readers.
This is why something like the Life Project is so essential. Nobody else seems to get it yet. Nobody else has proposed this. Human survival is going to be increasingly imperiled. It will take DECADES of effort to establish bio-regional survival habitats (if even possible), something I identified twelve years ago. But everybody seems to be placing all of their hopes upon vapor-technology to save our species – technology which doesn’t even exist and even if it did, it is extremely unlikely it could make the difference because of the scale of the problem.
We now know from other studies that it is likely impossible to reduce carbon loading in the atmosphere no matter what we try to do. And we certainly have zero ability to reduce carbon saturation in the world’s oceans. Therefore, we are committed to absolutely hellish conditions – which will exceed the limits of human survival.
Well god damn. I knew this all years ago and could not get anyone to listen. This isn’t an issue about who is right and who isn’t – it is about making the right decisions at the right time with the right information – so that the species might have a chance at survival. I also see this as being more then just a species-centric issue. We are not the only species that will be severely effected, the entire planet will be effected. Non-migratory species will simply die, thereby severely crowding other remaining areas where migratory species managed to escape to. Those regions don’t have enough food (or they would already be there) and the increased competition will just make it that much worse. And that’s just at the lower 4°C “scenarios” which I already know are too low anyway. Higher temperatures then this are expected.
It is still quite stunning to me that the world refuses to sit up and listen to the most urgent and REAL message of this global emergency. Instead, we have really stupid shit like this garbage and this garbage being published into the minds of millions to entertain total zombies. Humans will believe any damned thing – except the truth. This is strong evidence that we do not deserve to survive this folly we have brought upon ourselves – our species is just too damned stupid to get out of its own stupidstitious way.
But not all of us fall into this camp of whacked out fundamentalist crazies. Some of us have really tried to help humanity. And we get no support, no thanks, no readership, virtually nothing.
Yeah, I’m mad alright. I’ve poured my life’s work into this blog and it’s proven to be a total waste of time and effort. I have to sell off things just to keep this blog operational. It would have been better for me to continue to publish stupid shit like everyone else to retain an audience and get some support. But I chose not to, because this is a very real, very dangerous, global emergency unfolding right now. And I cannot get any of you to pay attention.
