climate change that takes place due to increases in carbon dioxide concentration is largely irreversible for 1,000 years after emissions stop. Susan Solomon et al

...the costs of climate change, if not addressed, will be equivalent to losing 5 percent (and potentially as much as 20 percent) of the global gross domestic product (GDP) each year, now and forever." Hundreds of millions of people could be threatened with hunger, water shortages, and severe economic deprivation. "Climate change is the greatest example of market failure we have ever seen." from the Stern Report on the Economics of Climate Change. (updated 8/2011 in Technology Review Magazine).

"...Systemic risk in the financial system can be remedied by the taxpayer, but no one will come to the rescue if the environment is destroyed. That it must be destroyed is close to an institutional imperative. Business leaders who are conducting propaganda campaigns to convince the population that anthropogenic global warming is a liberal hoax understand full well how grave is the threat, but they must maximize short-term profit and market share. If they don't, someone else will. This vicious cycle could well turn out to be lethal. To see how grave the danger is, simply have a look at the new Congress in the U.S., propelled into power by business funding and propaganda. Almost all are climate deniers. They have already begun to cut funding for measures that might mitigate environmental catastrophe. Worse, some are true believers; for example, the new head of a subcommittee on the environment who explained that global warming cannot be a problem because God promised Noah that there will not be another flood." Noam Chomsky

Climate-Change Summary and Update

Pruitt’s War on the Planet and the EPA—and What Congress Can Do About It (12/5/2017)

More than 15,000 scientists from 184 countries issue 'warning to humanity' (11/14/2017)

The U.S. is now the only country not part of Paris climate agreement after Syria signs on (11/7/2017)

Major US media doesn't discuss climate change much. It was not discussed in the last round of Presidential debates where important issues tend to be left out. Trump has made the US the only country not to sign on to the Paris Climate Agreement.

The Trump administration is suppressing discussion of climate change by wiping it from web sites, and gagging hold-over scientists who actually know something about it. Consistent with Republican tradition the Trump administration denies the science. There will be consequences.

If you leave your automobile in the hot sun, you are not surprised when it gets very hot inside. Expect the same effect for the planet.

They physics are simple. CO2 is a greenhouse gas. The more that is added to the atmosphere, the warmer it gets. The maximum safe level was estimated at 350 parts per million, but we are now over 400 ppm and climbing fast. But CO2 is not the only pollutant. Methane is even more powerful and as Arctic permafrost melts, it can be massively released. CO2 persists for centuries, so it is cumulative. Methane disburses more quickly.

Observe the melting Arctic ice, melting glaciers (causing drought), ocean acidification, collapsing fisheries, raging forest fires, potent hurricanes, falling groundwater, expanding deserts, species extinction, rising sea levels and resulting, increasing migration.

Deep geologic history tells us that as CO2 increases, melting ice raises sea level. Coastal cities, world-wide, will be flooded. Many poor countries are not far above sea level, so there will be mass migration.

As mass migration increases, politics will move to the right.

A human population approaching 7 billion can be maintained only by desolating the Earth. If wild habitat is given over to human cultivation and habitation, if rainforests can be turned into green deserts, if genetic engineering enables ever-higher yields to be extorted from the thinning soils—then humans will have created for themselves a new geological era, the Eremozoic, the Era of Solitude, in which little remains on the Earth but themselves and the prosthetic environment that keeps them alive. ~ John Gray

"it’s probably too late to stop the frying of the planet unless we bring the industrial economy crashing to a very abrupt halt. Even conservative mainstream scientists admit that only complete collapse of the global industrial economy will save us from runaway greenhouse . Naturally, their paper was rejected by several journals — even the scientific community can’t handle this particular truth — before it was published last month in Climatic Change. We do not know how quickly we’ll need to terminate the industrial economy to save our species. If we did, we could spend that entire span arguing about the morality of bringing down the industrial machine of death. Since we don’t, we need to act as if the matter is urgent, which, as it turns out, nicely matches the data on the topic . Guy McPherson"

"... we are in the process of destroying a great many things which are real for the sake of something that exists chiefly in our imagination: money." Decline of the Empire: Clueless Man.

The destruction of the natural world is not the result of global capitalism, industrialisation, “Western civilisation” or any flaw in human institutions. It is a consequence of the evolutionary success of an exceptionally rapacious primate. Throughout all of history and prehistory, human advance has coincided with ecological devastation. — John Gray, STRAW DOGS

"unchecked climate change equals the world depicted by Mad Max, only hotter, with no beaches, and perhaps with even more chaos.” The Age of Consequences: The Foreign Policy and National Security Implications of Global Climate Change (2007)

You want to hear about real manipulation? Media Matters reports that for the past four years, not once was a scientist on a Sunday morning news show to talk climate change. Those discussions were dominated by politicians or a media people. Sauce for the goose: Media Matters found that every politician interviewed was a Republican. And since I’m at it, please, don’t bother with false equivalencies. By the way, Lamar Smith (R-Tex) is a climate change denier. And he’s taking over the Congressional House Science Committee. Phil Plait

"...as recently as 2006, only one third of Americans actually believed climate change was real and caused by human activity, and even now, it’s not uncommon to hear people on TV or radio denouncing climate change. In Europe, climate change denial is seen as the preserve of the crackpot, and few political figures or members of the news media would dream of mentioning it, as doing so often receives the same contempt from the European public as denying the holocaust." Imogen Reed

Republicans in Congress objected to the C.I.A.'s creation of a climate change center and tried to deny money for it. The American weather satellite program is losing capability because of years of underfunding and mismanagement, imperiiing the ability to predict and monitor major storms." John Broder NYT (11/9/2012)

At the forefront of the defense of nature are those often called “primitive”: members of indigenous and tribal groups, like the First Nations in Canada or the Aborigines in Australia - the remnants of peoples who have survived the imperial onslaught. At the forefront of the assault on nature are those who call themselves the most advanced and civilized: the richest and most powerful nations. Noam Chomsky
Blinded by ignorance and self-absorption, humanity is destroying the creation. There is still time to assume the stewardship of the natural world that we owe to future human generations." E. O. Wilson, The Creation.
It is not easy to see how the more extreme forms of nationalism can long survive when men have seen the Earth in its true perspective as a single small globe against the stars: Arthur C. Clarke
...the distaste for accepting the horrors of climate change, denial, stupidity, fecklessness, whatever you want to call it, has spawned a lively industry in climate change denial that is a wholly owned subsidiary of the oil, gas, and coal industries and a political sub-culture in its own right, aimed at defeating any policy consensus that would reduce the use (and sale ) of oil, gas and coal. Climate denial also happens to work nicely for that big chunk of the public at large that does not want to entertain any comprehensive change in the way we currently do things. And so the debate about what to do about climate change decays into inconherence as the deniers deliberiately distort the facts while the science-minded are buffaloed by such mendacity and frustrated by a public that isn't interested in the facts. James Howard Kunstler: Too Much Magic pg199.
If the Kyoto Protocol is the best that the evolutionary process can provide as an example of the survival of the fittest, the very clear deduction is that we're not fit to survive, and we're not going to. We have so lost our way. Aubrey Meyer

Long term Weather Forecast

Guy McPherson's website,Nature Bats Last, should be your first stop for a long term weather forecast. Dr. Malcolm Light calls it an "Extreme National Emergency".

Note: some of the following scenarios from "The Extreme Future": James Canton, Ph.d.

Human population increase is putting pressure on the earth's environment. Malthus wasn't wrong, just early. People are failing to recognise limits to growth.

Expect continued and accelerating warming. Check out some of the evidence for Global Warming, or the Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The CO2 safe upper limit is estimated at 350 ppm, but has actually risen to over 400 and is increasing rapidly. It persists for centuries, and UN scientists warn time is running out to tackle global warming.

Arctic ice will certainly melt, open water will appear near the North Pole, sea levels will rise flooding many coastal cities and low-lying lands, glaciers will disappear reducing the natural supply of fresh water. Serious droughts will shrink crop yields and will be disastrous for many. Desertification will accelerate. Lakes will shrink. Dust Bowls expand. Species will go extinct.

Sea levels will rise forcing migration from areas near water level. The migration is already beginning. Insects will proliferate in northern climates bringing more disease. Many low coastal areas will become uninhabitable forcing many of the world's poorest to migrate to higher ground. Likelyhood of resource wars much higher. Massive immigration from climate impacted areas inevetable. Danger of nuclear war, particularly between India and Pakistan, will grow.

Storm severity will increase as ocean waters warm.

Larger forest fires result from warmer, dryer conditions. A recent 60 Minutes piece reported that no firefighters doubt global warming.

It is well established that Biodiversity has declined. This will be a permanent loss. Many species will need to move to preserve their habitat. Tropical species, insects, and disease will spread north. See Elizabeth Kolbert's Pulitzer-prize winning book: The Sixth Extinction

Pollutants will become more hazardous and more threatening. Disease increase including cancer and environmentally related diseases due to overpopulation, pollution, environmental damage, and climate change.

Peak oil will make fuel, transport, and fertilizer, and food more expensive.

Deforestation will accelerate as demand grows for biofuels. Lack of Farmland will also be exacerbated by urban growth. Food shortages will be extensive.

Over fishing has already caused collapse of ocean ecology. Lakes and streams are too polluted for fishing.

Increased financial burden due to natural-resource scarcity will result in more frequent wars.

Population growth will put further pressure on resources. Resource scarcity of food, water, and land will increase poverty and migration. Poverty is a driver of war.

Because there are likely to be considerable non-linearities, climate change may not happen gradually. For example arctic ice melt will cause a change in the albedo, permafrost melt can release large amounts of methane, fresh water runoff from melting Greenland ice can cause a slowing or stopping of the Gulf Stream. So some of these changes could happen rapidly. Arctic ice melt is much faster than computer models predicted.

350 ppm CO2 was estimated the highest safe level, but we are over 400 ppm in 2016. It will probably never be less again. CO2 persists for centuries in the atmosphere.

The unholy alliance of Capitalism and religion are on track to devastate the environment. See the forecast.

The world as a whole is already well into a water crisis. About eighteen countries, home to half the world´s population, are draining their aquifers. In Hebei Province, in the heart of China´s northern grain belt, the average water level in the deep aquifer is dropping nearly three meters a year. Underground water levels are falling so fast in the lowlands of rural India that in some localities drinking water must be trucked in. One official of the International Water Management Institute has said, ¨When the balloon bursts, untold anarchy will be the lot of rural India.¨ In the Middle East, it is becoming clear that hatred and instability are not due so much to religious differences and the memories of historical injustice as they are to overpopulation and the severe shortage of arable land and water.

Politicization of Climate Science

Today, GAP is releasing a comprehensive report, Redacting the Science of Climate Change, detailing the findings of a year-long investigation into political interference at federal climate science agencies. The report demonstrates how policies and practices have increasingly restricted the flow of scientific information emerging from publicly-funded climate change research. This has negatively affected the media’s ability to report objectively on scientific issues, public officials’ capacity to respond with appropriate policies, and full public understanding of environmental concerns.  -- Dylan Blaylock 3/27/07
