There's always 'good news', especially from Tim Flannery. Despite that he is 'terrified',instead of being just 'worried'
I've never heard anything that makes sense from Flannery.
"26 years later, the outcomes are becoming obvious and are we locked into a 1.5-degree average increase with two degrees almost inevitable." I call bullshit, we are already past 1.5C and 6C is locked in.
" If there is no urgent action very soon, remediation will slip beyond our grasp."
The UN said we had 10 yrs in 1989.
The only decent thing about the article is the truth that the cowards are terrified.
A decade ago climate experts were deeply worried. Now they are terrified - Tim Flannery

At the time of the Rio Earth Summit in 1992, the changing climate was a challenging, but solvable problem.
26 years later, the outcomes are becoming obvious and are we locked into a 1.5-degree average increase with two degrees almost inevitable. If there is no urgent action very soon, remediation will slip beyond our grasp.
Prior to 1976 there had been no coral bleaching on the Great Barrier Reef. Now back-to-back bleaching means there is no recovery time leaving hundreds of kilometres of dead coral.
But there is some good news with new solar powered agriculture and industrial processes being developed. And South Australia has become a world leader in transitioning to renewable energy.
But with coral reefs dying before our eyes and climate changing everywhere fast, there isn’t a moment to lose.
This is Tim Flannery’s appearance at the Planet Talks, part of Womadelaide, April 2018.
