Just read a headline today that the melting of the poles and Greenland is now considered inevitable. Humans disgust me.
Even the most "alarmist" predictions are proving to be rather conservative.
Of course it has been known by the powers that be, why do you think the money grab began? Only the richest of the rich will survive, and in the end we all get treated the same.
The global warming deniers are sounding more and more like flat earthers.
There are just too many people on the planet. Mother Nature will make the necessary corrections.
" "Many scientists felt that report erred by underplaying the degree of confidence in the linkage between climate change and certain types of severe weather, including heat wave severity, heavy precipitation and drought, and HURRICANE INTENSITY,” he said. "
From the OP's article.
I can't believe there are still morons that deny the reality of global warming.
An appropriate day to bump this
It's telling that the most extreme of the predictions haven't been extreme enough.
The Economist has two interesting articles thus week that cast doubt on the extreme predictions. There is now some consensus of revising forecasts downward. Scientists still don't understand why, for example, there hasn't been appreciable warming over the past 10 years when there should have been. The Economist recommends an ounce of prevention being worth a pound of cure, but it still gives me hope that things aren't as fucked up as they seem.
