climate change is well and truly underway and anyone honestly
assessing the situation can see that the nonlinear unraveling of the
biosphere is gaining pace by the day. The new denier position is that
we are still in linear climate change which is patently untrue.
Everyone on the planet is being lied to about the severity of the
in the above embedded interview are the coming climate change and
habitat wars and the consequences of the imminent collapse of
industrial civilisation with the attendant melt down of 450 nuclear
power stations and 1200 spent fuel pool fires which will be
infinitely worse than the meltdowns. In the U.S. alone “when we
nuclear plants lie downstream from more than 50 dams,
the cumulative likelihood of at least one plant being affected by a
dam failure is too high to ignore—especially since these risk
estimates do not account for the impacts of earthquakes or the
possibility of sabotage.”
is it that the IPCC steadfastly ignores the obvious methane risk from
both the Arctic permafrost and the submarine clathrates? I believe it
is because they know that the immediate warming effects from the
emissions are already happening and in no way fit with their ‘Pie
in the Sky’ warming predictions. Propping up capitalism until it
consumes the living planet is their objective. To quote Professor Guy
McPherson who blogs at GuyMcPherson.com “Industrial
civilisation is grinding the living planet into dust”.
to watch the government chosen and funded scientists attending the
next IPCC Conference of Parties squirm like worms on a hook as they
try to sell you the myth that the 2C
target is both safe and achievablewhen
it obviously in’t.
is much confusion as to how far we are above, what is often
referred to as “Baseline”. Any
date used after 1700 ignores warming and carbon emissions that humans
have ejaculated into the atmosphere and is intellectually
dishonest. Question everything.
I believe that we are somewhere
around 1.6C and 1.8C above where the planet was in 1700.
David Wallace-Wells published a land mark article in the New York
magazine where he discussed the coming uninhabitable earth.
Wells was mercilessly attacked for some very minor errors but the
substance of the article was spot on.

wreak — sooner than you think.”
Those attacks are what we who
have the impossible conversation about near term human extinction
have come to expect. I’ll willingly take the barbs, I owe it to
GAIA to speak truth to power until the lights go out on our
civilisation and all complex life on this beautiful blue planet as a
result of our crack like addiction to carbon.
