Hunger, drought, disease: UN climate report reveals dire health threats

More bad news (of course): Hunger, drought, disease: UN climate report reveals dire health threats

Since I’ve covered so much of this so extensively before, not going to rehash what is in this draft report. But I will say – it is inaccurate. Too little, too long, and the numbers are too low. The only thing I can make sense of is it is being “edited for acceptance”, so once again, they won’t actually tell us how bad it a) already is; b) will get, very soon.

Anyone who is actively following this topic, which should be of extreme interest to every human on the planet, knows that the predictions, projections and expectations are off by a fair amount. It will be far worse then what is being claimed in official publications.

The “light duty” publications are specifically designed to downplay the existential threat, lest the public start to panic. Virtually every word is literally being wrestled over and toxic words that are not politically correct get removed. The same goes for sentence structure and the entire narrative, it must be watered down to prevent panic.

What you won’t read:

Humans are going to starve to death by the billions; billions will die from lack of water, sanitation, heat stress, exposure and conflict. Violence will rapidly escalate as humans fight over critical resources dwindling in availability. Wet-bulb temperatures will exceed human survivability in many regions in the lower latitudes around the world. Massive levels of immigration and refugees will ensure as millions of humans seek to find livable habitat. Wars, conflicts and competition for food, water, housing and economic opportunity will drastically increase. Mitigation and adaption efforts will be too little, too late and inadequate as world governments continue to postpone, posture and pretend that they are addressing the problem. Deadly climate change represents a species-extinction event for the human race and must be immediately recognized and addressed as fast as possible. Further delay will kill hundreds of millions, then billions more.

There – fixed it. That’s what the world needs to be told as soon as possible so that we can stop screwing around and declare a global emergency and put an end to the pretense. Every day we delay is going to make our survival as a species that much harder.

      I began using the term Abrupt Climate Change about 15 years ago, but now describe it as Planetary Meltdown.

      ‘IPCC steps up warning on climate tipping points in leaked draft report
      Scientists increasingly concerned about thresholds beyond which recovery may become impossible’

      Climate scientists are increasingly concerned that global heating will trigger tipping points in Earth’s natural systems, which will lead to widespread and possibly irrevocable disaster, unless action is taken urgently.

      The impacts are likely to be much closer than most people realise, a a draft report from the world’s leading climate scientists suggests, and will fundamentally reshape life in the coming decades even if greenhouse gas emissions are brought under some control.

      The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is preparing a landmark report to be published in stages this summer and next year. Most of the report will not be published in time for consideration by policymakers at Cop26, the UN climate talks taking place in November in Glasgow.’

      There it is again: possibly irrevocable disaster, unless action is taken urgently.

      Haven’t they been saying that for more than a decade?

      And what action is taken? Promotion of everything that makes matters worse fast, of course: extraction and burning of fossil fuels; consumerism, tourism etc.

      Here ia a little bit of honesty: ‘The impacts are likely to be much closer than most people realise, a a draft report from the world’s leading climate scientists suggests, and will fundamentally reshape life in the coming decades even if greenhouse gas emissions are brought under some control.’

      How about in the next few years, as opposed to over coming decades.

      ‘The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is preparing a landmark report to be published in stages this summer and next year. Most of the report will not be published in time for consideration by policymakers at Cop26, the UN climate talks taking place in November in Glasgow.’

      I wonder why that might be. June to November. That’s five fucking months! How long does it take to publish something so crucial to survival?

      I see the Lake Mead monitors have a new graph, with the current level just under 1070, and falling.

    Where did Sierra snow go this spring? Not into California rivers and water supplies

    State water planners say that 685,000 acre-feet of water that they had forecast as runoff in the Northern Sierra—or 40% more water than the city of Los Angeles uses in a year—failed to arrive. After two years of extreme drought, the ground was so dry that the water soaked in before making it down the mountain. Warmer-than-normal temperatures in April and May also caused significant amounts to evaporate.

    We associate the term tornado with the the central states of the US….’Over the Rainbow’, ‘Twister etc.’

    It seems that we have already overheated the planet sufficiently for them to occur in places they never occurred before, and for them to be very violent-all that energy has to go somewhere when it can’t escape into space the way it used to when atmospheric CO2 was below 350ppm.

    ‘Living hell’: deaths reported as Czech Republic tornado devastates villages

    I did today something i have not done for a long time) listened to commercial radio.

    Between all the music slots there is an incessant banter, encouraging people to fuck the planet faster, and lamenting the latest setback in planet-fucking -the travel restriction between Australia and NZ extended because of a Covid leak into NZ society (Wellington) via a Covid-carrying traveller from Oz.

    By the way, where is the Wizard of Oz? Still hiding behind the curtain, operating his Ponzi money-printing machine?
