450 parts per million of carbon dioxide is a dangerous tipping point for
climate change. we weren't expecting to hit it for over a decade. We
thought we had time to turn things around. We're already there.
"It establishes that the amount of greenhouse gas in the atmosphere is
already above the threshold that could potentially cause dangerous climate
change. We thought we'd be at that threshold within about a decade, that we had
that much time. I mean, that's beyond the limits of projection, beyond the
worst-case scenario as we thought of it in 2001."
And this article:
Experts say they are "stunned" by the loss of ice, with an area almost
twice as big as the UK disappearing in the last week alone.
Pretty much say it all. We are (pardon the vernacular) totally screwed on global warming. Yep. It's too late. The nightmare scenario was we'd be here in 10 years.
NOPE. We are here today.
Sell your ocean homes, move to the highest part of your cities and buy a lot of bug spray.
Actually they don't know WHAT'S really going to happen. Will the midwest plunge into a deep freeze or a tropical wonderland? Will the overflowing oceans create 40 days of rain when they evaporate into the atmosphere that flood the world even inland or will they change the coastal maps of the world and plunge other areas into severe drought and starve billions of people.
We just don't know, but I guarantee we are going to find out pretty quickly!!! It's too late to do anything now. Eight years ago, we had a chance to stop the acceleration to this point and a fake cowboy with deep ties to oil squandered that chance. We have no chances left.
It's just too late...
