“Suicide is high. Depression is huge. Families are breaking up. It’s devastation,” he said, shaking his head. “I’ve got a neighbor in terrible trouble. Found him in the paddock, sitting in his [truck], crying his eyes out. Grown men — big, strong grown men. We’re holding on by the skin of our teeth. It’s desperate times.” What will global warming look like?
It will also look like this: Abrupt Climate Change
Not a single day goes by that does not depict some climatic disaster of one sort or another. A hundred homes were just lost in Oklahoma, and wildfires in Texas just overran two towns. Just in case anybody didn’t notice, it’s still only April.
And a major new study led by NOAA found that if we don’t act to reverse emissions soon (more hopium – Admin), these global Dust Bowls will be irreversible for a long, long time (see NOAA stunner: Climate change “largely irreversible for 1000 years,” with permanent Dust Bowls in Southwest and around the globe). The regions that NOAA identifies as facing permanent Dust Bowls:
- U.S. Southwest
- Southeast Asia
- Eastern South America
- Southern Europe
- Southern Africa
- Northern Africa
- Western Australia
Again, since Australia is the most sensitive and driest of the habitable continents, it’s no surprise that it is the first to see such climate change driven decadal drought,
Australia is the “poster child” (at present) of climate change. But on the chopping block is the entire U.S. Southwest (for my American readers). What is happening in Australia will happen here.
