World could warm by massive 10C if all fossil fuels are burned
Arctic would warm by as much as 20C by 2300 with disastrous impacts if action is not taken on climate change, warns new study

The planet would warm by searing 10C if all fossil fuels are burned, according to a new study, leaving some regions uninhabitable and wreaking profound damage on human health, food supplies and the global economy.
In the meantime we KNOW that nothing is going to change and the energy companies are going to double down on what they’re already doing to destroy the planet.
For instance, we know that the predecessors of Exxon Mobil had a patent to reduce carbon emissions from cars from the 1960’s but suppressed it.
Exxon Unlikely to Change Course on Climate Change at Annual Shareholder Meeting
The oil giant opposes six shareholder resolutions involving climate change and its risks, including assessing the impact of the Paris climate accord.

ExxonMobil Corp. wants to extend its quarter-century streak of largely resisting the demands of some of its most vocal shareholders to alter course on climate change.
In the meantime Dahr Jamail continues to report the truth of the matter.
C02 levels in the atmosphere have reached 407 ppm which is a sure indicator that greenhouse gasses are coming from natural sources such as wildfires and other positive feedbacks.
As we know there at least a 10 year lagtime before we see the effects of all these emissions
Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide Concentration Has Passed the Point of No Return

A recent trip up Washington State's Mount Rainier brought home to me how rapidly things are changing, even in the high country.
I first climbed the mountain in 1994, when the main route was a picturesque climb up smooth glaciers. Most of the time crevasses weren't even visible, and snow cover was abundant.
But anthropogenic climate disruption (ACD) has been speeding up with each passing year, and in the same area 22 years later, I found large portions of it nearly unrecognizable. We took a somewhat different route than the one I'd climbed in 1994, primarily because the lower portion of that route is now unusable, as the glacier it traversed is so broken up and crevassed as to make it impassable.
"Changes that normally occur over a matter of centuries are transpiring over decades."
It being early season (most of the guide services had yet to begin taking clients up the mountain), I expected much heavier snow cover and the snow bridges over crevasses to be in decent shape. That wasn't the case. After gingerly stepping our way over several sketchy snow bridges, I was grateful we weren't on the 14,411-foot-high northwestern volcano any later in the season than we were. Thankfully, we were able to summit and get back down without incident.
Less than a year and a half earlier, in December 2014, Nature World News reported that ACD was melting Rainier's glaciers at "unprecedented" rates (six times the historic speed).
