Global Warming Getting Worse

Recommended Posts

This was a depressing read this morning. I am at a loss as to why Congress has not moved forward on climate change. Gridlock and partisan politics right now will kill us and our children tomorrow. They are probably giving this barely a thought. Bringing down Biden or bringing down the Trump Cult or the 2022 elections are more important. It's called drowning in your own shit.

Planet is on catastrophic path to 2.7 degrees of warming, UN report shows...

Scientists have said that the planet needs to slash 45% of its emissions by 2030 to reach carbon neutrality by mid-century. But under current emissions commitments from countries there will be a 16% increase in emissions in 2030 compared to 2010 levels, according to the report.

That would lead the planet to warm to 2.7 degrees above pre-industrial levels, the report says.

Scientists have said global temperatures should remain below 1.5 degrees above pre-industrial levels to stave off the worse consequences of the climate crisis. A UN report in August showed global temperature is already around 1.2 degrees of warming....In a statement about today's report, UN Secretary-General António Guterres called the planet's current path "catastrophic."....Planet is on catastrophic path to 2.7 degrees of warming, UN report shows (msn.com)

It's time to sound the Alarm. The UN is meeting.

"It's time to read the alarm bell," Guterres told Reuters last week. "We are on the verge of the abyss."

UNITED NATIONS, Sept 19 (Reuters) - World leaders are returning to the United Nations in New York this week with a focus on boosting efforts to fight both climate change and the COVID-19 pandemic, which last year forced them to send video statements for the annual gathering...World leaders return to U.N. with focus on pandemic, climate (msn.com)

This is very disturbing if true.

Even lower in popularity: spending to combat climate change.

“Most people don’t care about climate change very much, except for very liberal white people,” Shor warned. “Almost everyone else thinks poverty is more important than climate change.”.....Democrats' $3.5-trillion spending plan is about to get a trim. They should be happy (msn.com)

 

The whole US economy will crash in on our children if serious action is not taken now. It's getting very late to begin measures to avoid this. Americans will experience death and poverty, starvation and migration. Banks will fail and once the food stores shut down....game over. Food riots, violence, anarchy. This will happen all over the world.

But helping climate change would provide so  many great jobs to the working class.  Have you seen the side hustle of Joe Manchin?

Yes! 

They are afraid to take the necessary, bold steps. Instead the opt out for ant steps because to do it right now, will impact the world economies in a seemingly negative way. Not good for them politically. Joe's paying for that now in the ratings. He knows yet is not afraid to do what must be done. And his slimey weasel opponents are pounding him on the economy while trying to take credit for the infrastructure package that passed....and Americans can't see through this.

He's been blocked by Senate and House Republicans all the way. The solutions are there, yet politics does not care about America's future. We lost 4 years under Trump and took a huge back slide on this existential issue. If the Republicans gain control than any steps forward will be undone and global warming will not be addressed. We are at the tipping point and these self serving ego's will destroy America's future.

He has 50 in the Senate and a majority in the house.  Tell them he wants the filibuster gone.  If mancin or sinema balk it's time to pull the lbj.  Go to wv everyday and start talking about his donors.  Also since his daughter purjered herself to Congress she can be peep walked.  Break his back.

Sinema is a bit more difficult.  She loves flouting what ppl want.  Go to her open secrets page and take the top 5 donors and begin to destroy policy they really like.  Also have justice start looking into any illegality.  She will get a call from tgem fast to make it stop.
