Pirates Cove tackled the latest babbling idiocy from the Cult of Climate Change
Global warming is posing such wide-ranging risks to humanity, involving so many types of phenomena, that by the end of this century some parts of the world could face as many as six climate-related crises at the same time, researchers say.
This chilling prospect is described in a paper published Monday in Nature Climate Change, a respected academic journal, that shows the effects of climate change across a broad spectrum of problems, including heat waves, wildfires, sea level rise, hurricanes, flooding, drought and shortages of clean water.
Such problems are already coming in combination, said the lead author, Camilo Mora of the University of Hawaii at Manoa. He noted that Florida had recently experienced extreme drought, record high temperatures and wildfires — and also Hurricane Michael, the powerful Category 4 storm that slammed into the Panhandle last month. Similarly, California is suffering through the worst wildfires the state has ever seen, as well as drought, extreme heat waves and degraded air quality that threatens the health of residents.
Things will get worse, the authors wrote. The paper projects future trends and suggests that, by 2100, unless humanity takes forceful action to curb the greenhouse gas emissions that drive climate change, some tropical coastal areas of the planet, like the Atlantic coast of South and Central America, could be hit by as many as six crises at a time.
That prospect is “like a terror movie that is real,” Dr. Mora said.
Oh no! We are DOOMED, DOOMED I say. But wait, wait, there is one hope to avoid this calamity, but we all must act. Everyone who does not want to die from a tornado of fire and volcanic ash pull out your wallet……..
We can fix this all with a tax, you know. Because the storms and events and such now are totally different from the ones when CO2 was below the safe threshold of 350ppm. Like, say, during the time of the Black Death.
Yep! The only thing that can save us is for all of us to have less money! Well, except for the pimps who will profit off these taxes. Go green indeed!
