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?
