Ignore the Fear Mongering, Here's What Climate Change Models Actually Say |  Mises Wire

1980: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE since 1850 and the Industrial Revolution we have doubled atmospheric CO2 and if we continue to burn fossil fuels it could double again in the next fifty years (2030) because fossil fuels produce carbon dioxide faster than plants can absorb them. Warming could cause the West Antarctic Ice Sheet to crack and slide into the ocean to raise sea levels by 16 feet and submerge Florida just as it had done in the previous interglacial 130,000 years ago. There are too many uncertainties to asses the economic impact and the less we know the scarier it gets. OMG! OMG!

1981: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE Climate change is related to ozone depletion and is just as scary if not more so. Chlorofluorocarbons, like carbon dioxide, also trap heat and cause global warming that can lead to melting polar ice caps and rising sea levels. The combination of CFC and CO2 emitted by human activity in the 1980s will raise temperature by 0.2 to 0.3 C rising even above the level of the 1930s, the warmest period of this century – OMG! OMG!

1981: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE Rising carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere could bring a global warming of unprecedented magnitude melting the polar ice caps and flooding lowlands in the next century. The temperature rise could be 4.5 to 8 F depending on the growth in fossil fuel consumption. A doubling of CO2 will cause a temperature rise of 6 F. The West Antarctic Ice Sheet is vulnerable to rapid disintegration and melting. A global mean temperature rise of 3.6 F could cause a rise of 9 F at Antarctica melting the Ice Sheet and raising sea levels by 15 to 20 feet and flooding 25% of Florida and Louisiana. OMG! OMG!

1982: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE The use of fossil fuels will cause atmospheric carbon dioxide to double in the next 40 to 100 years raising temperatures by an average of 5 F by virtue of the greenhouse effect because carbon dioxide traps heat. The warming will cause polar ice to melt. In high northern latitudes spring will come earlier and earlier and winter later and later causing a decline in soil moisture. Warmer temperatures and less rainfall will devastate agriculture in much of the United States and the Soviet Union but a more regular monsoon pattern in India will increase rice production. Glaciers will melt and raise sea levels. But the government is not taking these forecasts seriously enough. OMG! OMG!

1982: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE in the period 1940-1980 50,000 cubic km of polar ice has melted by global warming and the sea level has risen by thermal expansion as well as the added water from the ice melt. Global warming is “due in some degree presumably to increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide” is self-canceling because melting ice absorbs latent heat and cools the ocean. As polar ice melts, the resultant re-distribution of the earth’s mass slows down its rotational speed. In the 40-year period studied, earth’s rotational speed was thus slowed by 0.00000004%. OMG! OMG!

1983: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE The world is powerless to prevent a greenhouse effect that will dramatically alter food production and living patterns. Instead of fighting the inevitable world leaders should be planning how to cope with its catastrophic impact. Coastal cities without sea-walls will be flooded. The climate of NYC will be like the climate now found in Florida. The US wheat belt will move northward. All because of global warming caused by a buildup of carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels. By the year 2100 these changes will produce catastrophic results. We should respond to this challenge with a sense of urgency. The warming process now set in place is irreversible and the dire predictions of global warming can only be delayed by a few years even with Draconian restrictions on fossil fuels. By the year 2000 the temperature could be 1.1 degrees higher, 3.6 degrees higher by 2040, and 9 degrees higher by 2100. The temperature rise in the poles will be three times higher melting the polar ice caps and causing sea levels to rise 3.5 inches by 2000, one foot by 2025, and five feet by 2100. OMG! OMG!

1984: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE Global warming caused by carbon dioxide pollution will cause noticeable warming by 2000 and increase the evaporation rate of water causing the level of the Great Lakes to drop 30% by 2050. These changes will cause a prolonged severe drought that will turn the American prairies into a dust bowl in the next few decades. OMG! OMG!

1985: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE The Polar Research Board of the National Academy of Sciences says that the sea level will rise 4-6 cm by 2000 and 12-27 cm by 2030 because global warming from the greenhouse effect will warm the oceans and melt glaciers and polar ice caps including Greenland. OMG! OMG!

1986: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE The greenhouse effect will cause th earth to be warmer in he next decade than at any other time in the last 100,000 years and cause shoreline erosion, droughts, and other catastrophic changes just as the depletion of the ozone layer is doing. OMG! OMG!

1988: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE the earth has been warmer in the first five months of this year than in any comparable period since measurements began 130 years ago” and therefore that the effects of greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels are now palpable. The nightmare has arrived, “the greenhouse effect is here” with the NYT reporting that “humans, by burning fossil fuels , have altered the global climate in a manner that will affect life on earth for centuries to come”. Southeast and Midwest states in the USA will experience “frequent episodes of very high temperatures and drought in the next decade and beyond” OMG! OMG!

1988: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE A buildup of carbon dioxide from the burning of fossil fuels  emitted by human activities into is causing the earth’s surface to warm by trapping infrared radiation from the sun and turning the entire earth into a kind of greenhouse – just as mathematical models had  predicted. Sometime between 2025 to 2050 the earth will be 3F to 9F warmer with higher latitudes 20F warmer. mathematical models had  predicted. Melting glaciers and polar ice and thermal expansion of the oceans will cause the sea level to rise by one to four feet by 2050 OMG! OMG!

1988: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE The hottest years on record occurred in the 1980s with the first 5 months of this year very hot. Just as the models had predicted, the rise in temperature is greater in high latitudes than in low, is greater over continents than oceans, and there is cooling in the upper atmosphere as the lower atmosphere warms up. Clearly, global warming by greenhouse gas emissions as predicted by these computer models has begun OMG! OMG!

1990: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE Global warming will cause serious environmental damage starting early in the next century long before the maximum predicted temperature is reached. We must set limits beyond which the global temperature and sea level should not be permitted to rise to avoid serious and ever increasing risks posed by the continued flow of heat trapping gases into the atmosphere at present rates. OMG! OMG!

1990: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE the buildup of CO2 from fossil fuel consumption lead to rising temperatures worldwide, altered weather patterns, lower food production, and rising sea levels. In the long run the cost of inaction exceeds the cost of mitigation but government leaders do not understand that risk. OMG! OMG!

1993: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE Using the most accurate system ever devised for measuring global sea levels,scientists have found a steady rise of 3 mm per year for the past two years. These data now establish beyond any doubt that the greenhouse effect is causing global warming. If this trend continues for another few years it will be solid evidence of a warming trend related to increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide. Doubts about the reliability of older and less precise temperature data may now be put aside as the very accurate sea level data clearly establishes the scientific basis of global warming. OMG! OMG!

1995: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE After a three year hiatus the warming trend has returned. Global warming is not gone, it was just temporarily interrupted by the eruption of Mount Pinatubo. Temperatures have since rebounded to the levels of the 1980s – the warmest decade on record –reaching the record high of 60C reached in 1990. Global temperatures from March to December were the warmest since 1951. The mainstream view among researchers on climatic change is that atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases could double by the end of the next century and that this could produce a global warming of 1.5C to 4.5C. By comparison, the earth is 3C to 5C warmer now than in the last ice age, which ended about 10,000 years ago. A 2C warming,could cause ice at the poles to melt, rising sea levels, shifting climatic zones, and more extreme floods, droughts, storms, and cold and heat waves. Violent and frequent weather extremes have become more common since 1980. OMG! OMG!

1995: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE Global warming will bring altered crop growing seasons, more severe storms, more tropical diseases, and the inundation of low lying areas by rising seas. As to the cause, the scientific debate about whether the warming is a natural variation or caused by man has now been settled. A scientific consensus due to advances in computer modeling has emerged that the cause of the warming is the greenhouse effect of carbon dioxide emitted by man’s fossil fuel consumption. These findings are now beyond question. OMG! OMG!

1995: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE IPCC scientists are saying that the warming of the earth by 0.5C in the last 100 years is the biggest since the last ice age and is not within the range of natural variability. Therefore it must represent a man made influence on global climate. OMG! OMG!

1996: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE the Northeast US was hit by record cold and snowfall but the blizzard of 1996 and the bitter cold in Europe were actually caused by global warming because warming increases evaporation that in turn increases precipitation. The bitter winter this year represents a southward bulge of the Arctic air mass caused by global warming. OMG! OMG!

1996: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE The earth’s climate will change rapidly in the coming century as greenhouse gases trap solar radiation. Thousands could die in major cities in heat waves and tens of millions will face malaria epidemics in areas where the disease does not now occur. Last July a heat wave killed 465 people in Chicago alone. This is an issue that must be taken seriously. Climate negotiators are warned against taking a wait and see attitude because the consequences of inaction are dire. OMG! OMG!

1996: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE Earth’s temperature will rise by 2C in the next 100 years with serious negative effects. Extreme temperatures will become normal. Habitats will change. Many plants and animals will become extinct. Some regions will suffer water shortages. Polar ice will melt. The sea level will rise. Emissions of greenhouse gases that trap solar energy will double by the year 2010. A 50% reduction in emissions over the next 50 years is needed to reverse the warming trend. We are not on track to meet emission the reduction needed. OMG! OMG!

1997: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE Twenty years of hard data from meteorological stations and nature show a clear warming trend. Growth rings in Mongolian and Canadian trees are getting wider. Butterflies in California are moving to higher ground once too cold for butterflies. Stalactites in Britain are growing faster. The growing season for crops in Australia is getting longer. Permafrost in Siberia and Canada is melting. The evidence is there anywhere you look. A warming rate is one 1C per century is enough to wreak havoc. The cause is the greenhouse effect of CO2 emissions from fossil fuels as well as CFCs and HCFCs that trap heat. The effect is being compounded as deforestation simultaneously removes trees that absorb CO2. Some scientists are skeptical but the majority view is that the greenhouse effect is real and it requires urgent action. This conclusion rests on the results from sophisticated computer simulation models that give the best possible information on this topic even though they are not perfect. These models are giving us scary accounts of the future and we should be paying attention. The IPCC tell us that melting ice and thermal expansion of oceans will cause the sea level to rise one meter by 2037 and inundate low lying areas and island nations. Extreme weather events will become common. El Nino and La Nina cycles will become more extreme. There will be millions of climate refugees driven from their home by global warming. Some regions of the world will become hotter, others colder, some wetter, others drier. Entire weather systems will be dramatically altered. The Gulf Stream will switch off. Tropical diseases such as malaria will ravage the world: OMG! OMG!

1997: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE Entire nations among the Pacific islands vanish beneath the waves, coastal communities in the USA from North Carolina to the Texas Gulf wash out to sea, wild swings in precipitation first bring drought and then torrential rains and floods, coastal mudslides in California become routine, and maple trees of the North die out as dengue fever and mosquito borne encephalitis move in. OMG! OMG!

1997: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE Without reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, carbon dioxide in the atmosphere could double in the next century, warming the atmosphere and triggering an environmental chain reaction that could raise sea levels, change ocean currents and intensify damage from storms, droughts and the spread of tropical diseases.

1998: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE Last year was the hottest year on record and this decade has already produced 9 of the 11 hottest years of the century. The data show that man made greenhouse gases are causing a potentially disastrous warming of the earth. OMG! OMG!

1998: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE 1998 will be UK’s hottest year since 1106, “the warmest year of the millennium”; sometime between 2041 and 2070 we will see a sharp rise in sick, hungry, and thirsty people; by 2048 the world’s forests will become so degraded that they will change from net CO2 sinks to net CO2 producers further accelerating global warming; human greenhouse gas emissions have contributed substantially to global warming over the past half century; the climate model is validated by its ability to reconstruct the last 150 years of climate conditions; the 1997-1998 ElNino is the most extreme on record; in the next 100 years global temperatures will rise by 6C – the most extreme in the last 10,000 years. The Amazon forest will die out and rot releasing carbon dioxide. Tropical grasslands will be transformed into deserts. For the first half of the 21st century, vegetation will absorb CO2 at a rate of about 2-3 GtC per year while human emissions of CO2 are about 7GtC a year. From 2050 onwards, vegetation dying under the impact of climate change will itself add about 2GtC a year to greenhouse emissions, further intensifying global warming. Global warming will accelerat due to “positive feedback” – a way by which the global warming we have caused will itself cause further global warming. More than 170 million people will suffer from water shortage. Crop yields will increase in areas like Canada and Europe, but nearer the equator they will shrink. Some 18% more of Africa’s people will be at risk of hunger simply because of climate change. Sea levels will rise by 21 cm inundating 20 million people. Malaria infection will increase, and spread to areas where it is not currently seen. OMG! OMG!

1998: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE The first half of 1998 was the warmest six months ever recorded on earth. The month of July, 1998 will also set a record. A heat wave in the Southwest has caused dozens of deaths with the hottest weather to hit the state since 1980. Tuesday was the 9th straight day that the temperature there has broken 100F. The heat wave is accompanied by drought that will drain $4.6 billion from the Texas economy in the next few months. Oklahoma had 6 deaths and Louisiana 20 deaths from the heat wave. According to NOAA data the near surface temperature for June 1998 over both land and water were at an all time high. There is no time in data history that we have seen this sequence of record setting for six consecutive months. OMG! OMG!

1999: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE Sea ice in the Arctic Basin is shrinking by 14000 square miles per year “probably” because of global warming caused by human activity according to a new international study that used 46 years of data and sophisticated computer simulation models to tackle the specific question of whether the loss of Arctic ice is a natural variation or caused by global warming. The computer model says that the probability that these changes were caused by natural variation is 1% but when global warming was added to the model the ice melt was a perfect fit. OMG! OMG!

1999: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE A computer simulation model shows that increasing the temperature on the Arctic tundra can triple its CO2 emissions from the soil of the tundra. The Arctic contains 1/3 of the earth’s soil stored carbon dioxide. The computer model shows a positive feedback look that can cause global warming to snowball because warming in itself can increase carbon dioxide in the air and accelerate the rate of warming. It is a frightening scenario that could cause global warming catastrophe to occur sooner than previously thought. OMG! OMG!

2000: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE Rapidly warming seas caused by global warming has turned coral reefs into endangered ecosystems. 25% of the world’s coral reefs are already gone. Without urgent and immediate CO2 emission reductions coral reefs will be completely gone from the planet in 30 to 50 years. OMG! OMG!

2000: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE blue-ribbon panel of climate scientists from the National Academy of Sciences has issued a report saying that “global warming is undoubtedly real” and it is under way with dire consequences to follow. Global temperatures have risen more sharply in the last 20 years than at any time this century.  OMG! OMG!

2001: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE so much CO2 has already been injected into the air that global warming is “already unstoppable”; the world is warming at an accelerating rate; tens of millions of people around the world will be driven from their homes in the coming decades to become climate change refugees; governments must take urgent action to reduce carbon dioxide emissions; climate change is now so rapid that it is not possible for us to adapt to these changes; human ecosystems and biodiversity will all be affected and it will affect the world economy; the temperature rise in the next 100 years will be between 1.4C and 5.8C, significantly higher than previously thought; human influences will continue to change atmospheric composition throughout the 21st century; global warming will persist for many centuries by virtue of the CO2 we have already put into the air. OMG! OMG!

2001: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE global warming may trigger climate changes so abrupt that ecosystems will not be able to adapt. Look for local or short term cooling, floods, droughts, and other unexpected changes. A growing CO2 concentration in the atmosphere due to the use of fossil fuels is to blame. Some regional climates have changed by as much as 10C in 10 years. Antarctica’s largest glaciers are rapidly thinning, and in the last 10 years have lost up to 150 feet of thickness in some places, enough to raise global sea levels by 0.4 mm OMG! OMG!

2001: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE Carbon dioxide from unhindered burning of fossil fuels will raise earth’s temperature 5.8C by 2100. The work of the panel over the last 10 years has now effectively ended the debate about man made global warming It is time for governments to get serious about reducing emissions.No country can afford to ignore the coming transformation of its natural and human environment. The poor and vulnerable are at greatest risk. OMG! OMG!

2002: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE 2002, ICE SHELF COLLAPSE A WARNING
A piece of ice the size of Rhode island broke off the Larsen ice shelf in Antarctica and within a month it dissipated sending a huge flotsam of ice into the sea. At about the same time an iceberg the size of Delaware broke off the Thwaites Glacier. A few months ago parts of the Ross ice shelf had broken off in a similar way. These events serve as a dramatic reminders that global warming is real and its effects are potentially catastrophic and underscores the urgent need for a binding international agreement to cut greenhouse gas emissions. OMG! OMG!

2003: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE Downhill skiing could disappear altogether in some areas. A retreating snow line will cut off base villages from their ski runs by 2030. Traditional low altitude ski resorts of Europe will have to either shut down or suffer higher costs of snow making. Global warming will push the altitude for ski resorts from 4265 feet to 4900-6000 feet. Austria’s snow line is set to rise by 656 to 984 feet in the next 30-50 years leaving many ski resorts behind. Temperatures are set to rise by 2C to 6C by 2100. Dramatic action is needed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. OMG! OMG!

2004: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE Global warming has unleashed massive ecological changes. These changes are ushering in a grim future including massive species extinctions, an elevation of sea levels by 3 feet, wholesale changes to the Arctic, and disruptions to the earth’s life support system. This is a wake up call to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. OMG! OMG!

2004: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE Up in the Arctic,  polar bears, walruses, and some seals are becoming extinctArctic summer sea ice may disappear entirely. Combined with a rapidly melting Greenland ice sheet, it will raise the sea level 3 feet by 2100 inundating lowlands from Florida to Bangladesh. Average winter temperatures in Alaska and the rest of the Arctic are projected to rise an additional 7 to 13 degrees over the next 100 years because of increasing emissions of greenhouse gases from human activities. The area is warming twice as fast as anywhere else because of global air circulation patterns and natural feedback loops, such as less ice reflecting sunlight, leading to increased warming at ground level and more ice melt. Native peoples’ ways of life are threatened. Animal migration patterns have changed, and the thin sea ice and thawing tundra make it too dangerous for humans to hunt and travel. OMG! OMG!

2004: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE GLOBAL WARMING WILL MELT THE GREENLAND ICE SHEET. A meltdown of the massive ice sheet, which is more than 3km-thick would raise sea levels by an average seven meters, threatening countries such as Bangladesh, certain islands in the Pacific and some parts of Florida. Greenland’s huge ice sheet could melt within the next thousand years if emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) are not reduced. OMG! OMG!

2004: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE increasing greenhouse gases from human activities is causing the Arctic to warm twice as fast as the rest of the planet; in Alaska, western Canada, and eastern Russia winter temperatures have risen by 2C to 4C in the last 50 years; the Arctic will warm by 4C to 7C by 2100. A portion of Greenland’s ice sheet will melt; global sea levels will rise; global warming will intensify. Greenland contains enough melting ice to raise sea levels by 7 meters; Bangkok, Manila, Dhaka, Florida, Louisiana, and New Jersey are at risk of inundation; thawing permafrost and rising seas threaten Arctic coastal regions; climate change will accelerate and bring about profound ecological and social changes; the Arctic is experiencing the most rapid and severe climate change on earth and it’s going to get a lot worse; Arctic summer sea ice will decline by 50% to 100%polar bears will be driven towards extinction; this report is an urgent SOS for the Arctic; forest fires and insect infestations will increase in frequency and intensity; changing vegetation and rising sea levels will shrink the tundra to its lowest level in 21000 years; vanishing breeding areas for birds and grazing areas for animals will cause extinctions of many species; “if we limit emission of heat trapping carbon dioxide we can still help protect the Arctic and slow global warming” OMG!

2004: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE GLOBAL WARMING WILL LEAVE ARCTIC ICE FREE
The Arctic ice cap is shrinking at an unprecedented rate and will be gone by 2070. It has shrunk by 15%to 20% in the last 30 years. This process will accelerate with the Arctic warming twice as fast as the rest of the world due to a buildup of heat trapping greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Our fossil fuel emissions are to blame. OMG! OMG!

2005: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE HURRICANE KATRINA WAS CAUSED BY OUR USE OF FOSSIL FUELS
In the 2004 hurricane season more than 14 tropical cyclones formed in the North Atlantic basin. Four of these storms intensified to Category 4 or greater and made landfall in the USA causing considerable damage. The even more dramatic 2005 season followed in its heels with more than thirty depressions. Four of them intensified to Category 5 and three made landfall. The most intense was Hurricane Wilma but the most spectacular was Hurricane Katrina which made landfall in Florida and again in Louisiana. Climate scientists stepped up quickly and said that Katrina was confirmed as a climate change event by climate models. This is how fossil fuel emissiosn drive hurricane destructiveness. OMG! OMG!

2006: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE the coral is doomed to extinction by gobal warming. Climate scientists see all coral bleaching as anomalous and unnatural and therefore symptoms of human caused global warming, as if they had never seen coral bleaching before. In 2006, they issued an alarm that “it was already too late for the coral” because we have put too much CO2 into the atmosphere and the warming and acidification of the oceans thus caused will kill off all the world’s coral.

2007: IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED TO STEM THE EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND AVOID THE MUTUAL SUICIDE PACT ACROSS THE PLANET WITH EXPLOSIVE NATURAL FEEDBACK WARMING WHEN THE TEMPERATURE EXCEEDS 1.5C ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL BECAUSE THE ARCTIC IS SCREAMING. Climate science has found that the low sea ice extent in the Arctic is the leading indicator of climate change. The Arctic “is screaming”, Arctic sea ice extent is the “canary in the coal mine”, and Polar Bears and other creatures in the Arctic are dying off and facing imminent extinction. Scientists say that the melting sea ice has set up a positive feedback system that would cause the summer melts in subsequent years to be greater and greater until the Arctic becomes ice free in the summer of 2012. We must take action immediately to cut carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels. OMG! OMG!
