Anyone who is awake has seen the raging forest fires in Alberta Canada incinerating everything in its path when we are 1.5C above the arbitrary 1870 baseline as we track to and beyond the IPCC worst case scenario of 6C.
Chris Mooney from the Washington Post is doing some excellent research and writing on climate change but never mentions abrupt nor runaway climate change: ‘This scientist just changed how we think about climate change with one GIF‘. Click link to activate GIF (above is image only).
The monetary cost of these invasions will mean nothing when the true significance sinks in.
I personally don’t believe that there will be either a human or a tree standing on this planet when we are above 4C.
Bare in mind that as habitat collapses as it patently is, habitat wars will rage for the remaining days we have left on our dying biosphere.
More confirmation from Desmonda Despair.
We are currently around 1.5C above baseline tracking to and beyond the IPCC worst case scenario of 6C.
We were sold the lie that 2C would be safe, it patently isn’t.
We are in runaway, brace for imminent impact.
Another great blog post from Seemorerocks, thx Robin.
Human society and the global economy are inextricably linked to forests. More than 1 billion people depend on forests for their livelihoods. And forest ecosystems play a critical role in stabilizing the climate; providing food, water, wood products, and vital medicines; and supporting much of the world’s biodiversity.
Despite decreased deforestation rates in some regions, forest ecosystems are still under great threat. According to WRI research, 30 percent of global forest cover has been cleared, while another 20 percent has been degraded. Most of the rest has been fragmented, leaving only about 15 percent intact. …” http://www.wri.org/our-work/topics/forests
