Default Catastrophic climate change expected by 2040

Trumps own administration has conceded to this as well:

“On Monday, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released a daunting report, suggesting that we are currently on track for around 3 degrees Celsius of warming caused by greenhouse gas emissions. The IPCC authors promise that we will see coastal cities swallowed by the sea, global food shortages, and $54 trillion in climate-associated costs as soon as 2040.”

https://theintercept.com/2018/10/09/...-fossil-fuels/

“Last month, deep in a 500-page environmental impact statement, the Trump administration made a startling assumption: On its current course, the planet will warm a disastrous seven degrees by the end of this century.”

The current regime in control of America (all in their 70s) couldn't give a single ****.

In the same week that the world’s scientists declared global climate disruption has reached a “point of no return”, the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh, and the Trump administration all agreed to do nothing about it.

On Monday, the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a special report describing the effects of climate change that are already being felt today, and the disastrous effects that could come as soon as 2040 absent dramatic action. Then on Tuesday, the Supreme Court, at the request of the Trump administration, dismissed an appeal of a D.C. Circuit decision that prevented the EPA from regulating a powerful greenhouse gas.


The author of that decision: Judge Kavanaugh.

For anyone waiting for the impact now-Justice Kavanaugh will have on the Supreme Court, you need wait no longer. While Kavanaugh was not involved in the decision to dismiss this case, it is his opinion is now the law of the land — and is it a disaster for the environment.

As I've reported, the US billionaires relocating down under to N Zealand are the true rats jumping ship.

They figure to be able to live out their lives in comfort while the northern hemisphere starts to bake and things go to %#*&)

I thought the IPCC claimed we only had until 2030 in the other thread. This thread gives us more hope.

The IPCC is a joke. They had under estimated the extent of warming for political reasons. It's the same with the scientific community. They have trusted in models that, each time, have failed to account for exponential change.

But, global warming is a hoax, lmao. At this point, all that's left is to laugh at this.

Just 100 companies responsible for 71% of global emissions, study says

A relatively small number of fossil fuel producers and their investors could hold the key to tackling climate change

#1 China Coal is responsible for 15%

Just 25 companies are responsible for 50%
