Sooner Than You Imagine.

Recommended Posts

I know...I know...you're thinking "there goes max...he can't let this climate stuff go."

I can't.

It's all about awareness...not denial. Denial is going to kill everybody and everything.

 

Take the 30 minutes to read this. It scares me shitless....worrying about my children's future....everybody's future.

What I've cut and pasted here is very mild. Read on as the writer describes what will happen to people in gruesome detail.

 

 

 

It is, I promise, worse than you think. If your anxiety about global warming is dominated by fears of sea-level rise, you are barely scratching the surface of what terrors are possible, even within the lifetime of a teenager today.......The Earth has experienced five mass extinctions before the one we are living through now, each so complete a slate-wiping of the evolutionary record it functioned as a resetting of the planetary clock, and many climate scientists will tell you they are the best analog for the ecological future we are diving headlong into. Unless you are a teenager, you probably read in your high-school textbooks that these extinctions were the result of asteroids. In fact, all but the one that killed the dinosaurs were caused by climate change produced by greenhouse gas. The most notorious was 252 million years ago; it began when carbon warmed the planet by five degrees, accelerated when that warming triggered the release of methane in the Arctic, and ended with 97 percent of all life on Earth dead. We are currently adding carbon to the atmosphere at a considerably faster rate; by most estimates, at least ten times faster. The rate is accelerating. This is what Stephen Hawking had in mind when he said, this spring, that the species needs to colonize other planets in the next century to survive, and what drove Elon Musk, last month, to unveil his plans to build a Mars habitat in 40 to 100 years. These are nonspecialists, of course, and probably as inclined to irrational panic as you or I. But the many sober-minded scientists I interviewed over the past several months — the most credentialed and tenured in the field, few of them inclined to alarmism and many advisers to the IPCC who nevertheless criticize its conservatism — have quietly reached an apocalyptic conclusion, too: No plausible program of emissions reductions alone can prevent climate disaster...*This article appears in the July 10, 2017, issue of New York Magazine....http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/technology/when-will-the-planet-be-too-hot-for-humans-much-much-sooner-than-you-imagine/ar-BBE6TNd?li=BBnb7Kz
