Climate Change - Why we are heading for extinction and what to do about it

    I have a question for climate change advocates. If the global temp is indeed warmer now than it was during the ice age then how are the ice age animals frozen in permafrost? Obviously if the ground was frozen when the animals died then they could not be forced into the ground without causing massive damage to the remains but if they were exposed on the surface for even a short period of time then the remains would have started to putrefy, the bodies own internal temperature at the time of death would be enough to start the process in hours and is noticeable within days. I know the answer, I just want to see who else does. No I do not think the earth was warmer during the ice age than it is now, so don't even try to come at me from that angle.

    WTF, do what you say, look from the outside, Hitler murdered 2.5 million Russians, Stalin murdered 10 million Russians. Lefties win by 400%. Work the math out here below. I hope it is not a stumble as well. If the solar insolation has only varied 0.7 watts per sq. metre in the last 160 kyr (IPCC). At the peak of warming at all the Interglacials all the charts (even the adjusted charts) show that C02 keeps rising for an average of 800 years, C02 climbs to its highest ppm but the solar insolation is dropping slowly (0.1 to 0.2) so C02 at its maximum does not keep warming the temperature the earth cools with only a small insolation drop. So it is blatantly obvious that C02 has a small effect on atmospheric temperature.

    Adapt to a world that, eventually, will have an average temperature of 23 degrees C and stagnant oceans emitting hydrogen sulfide? The challenge to stop the fossil fuel industry destroying the habitability for short term profit is much easier.

    Freddy van Manen grindupBaker + Freddy van Manen "If warming to + 2 degrees celcious could be catastrophic for the world why it didn't happen before as showed in this Greenland ice core graph". Because the surface temperature of Greenland and the North Atlantic region isn't the same as the Global Mean Surface Temperature (GMST) and it doesn't change the same, not even close. 126,000 to 122,000 years ago when Earth's Global Mean Surface Temperature (GMST) was 0.5 degrees higher than now the surface of the Greenland ice sheet (GIS) was 5-8 degrees higher than now (from a Greenland ice core proxy like you reference) so it's 10-16x as much for Greenland so when Global Mean Surface Temperature (GMST) becomes 1.0 degrees higher than now the surface of the Greenland ice sheet (GIS) will be 10-16 degrees higher than now. It's massive. I'm sure it'll actually be a bit less like 7-12 degrees higher than now for the first few hundred years but it's still massive. That's why half the ice is now already guaranteed to be gone off Greenland in the next 300-700 years with no more warming at all. It happened before in the same situation and it'll happen again. That's why. Boy was that ever an easy one.

    At 25:40 "water vapour Roger makes one of his huge mistakes. The water vapour +ve feedback and loss of Arctic Ocean sea ice loss +ve feedback are definitely already included in each of the 2 "+0.5" on the blackboard (as they are included in the +1.2 degrees that's already happened). If they weren't included then each of the "+0.5" on the blackboard should have been "+0.25" instead and then you add a single "+0.5" for the water vapour +ve feedback and loss of Arctic Ocean sea ice loss +ve feedback (it gets a little complicated because you actually add another 0.25 but then that plays out over a couple of hundred years so we don't actually care). So, in summary, Roger made an absolutely massive ignorant mistake there by adding the 1.0 for feedbacks on when it was already included. This is what happens when you have nice social work, literature, poetry & author persons attempting to do solid physical science. They invariably screw it up like this. I like the Roger fellow though he seems pleasant.

    Just to be clear on the mumbled aside at 25:20 "there's a 20% chance that it's going to be 8 degrees higher in the next 5 years" that's huge false information simply because that happens to be physically impossible for this particular planet (there are other planets that it's possible for). So I can answer Roger's talk with himself at 25:30 "if I understand basic physics", the answer is obviously Roger doesn't understand basic physics. but that's OK because I can confirm his +2.2 degrees from 1750 AD if no carbon is burned from this year on, and the ocean stops taking up CO2, and the Arctic Ocean becomes typically ice free (

  14. grindupBaker

    grindupBakerヶ月 前

    At 24:35 I think the reason why Roger's "still to come through" 0.5 (I actually computed 0.54 the next 100 years with more sooner than later) is because the climate scientists must have determined that the ocean keeps taking up its 1.2 ppmv / year like it's been doing so the CO2 actually goes down in that case if humans stop burning. Climate scientists absolutely do know about that 0.54 or whatever because that's Jim Hansen's 1 watt Christmas tree light with his grandkids video and it's also Trenberth's "93% of heat into the oceans". I'll not bother to explain why but those 2 things plus the ice melt are the same "still to come through" 0.5 Roger mentions.

  15. grindupBaker

    grindupBakerヶ月 前

    I can answer Roger's confusion at 20:22. It's because the person's he's speaking with are referring to best estimate of >90% open water for the entire summer June 22 to September 22 and Roger is referring to >90% open water for a day or so in September. Completely different things. When you discuss anything with somebody I've always found that it's always best to first make sure that you are both discussing the same thing.

    Nothing special will happen, the arctic ice melted and grew back many times. With all the prohets of doom in the comments you get the impression that they can not wait for doomsday. I have to dissapoint you: Climate changes as it always did. I wonder how many more decades it will take for you to look back and be ashamed of your fearmongering. Probably you will claim that you saved earth, as if without you the earth would have gone apeshit...bullshit.

    @grindupBaker That goes a long with the idea that climate always is "special" If we look back warm periods were prosperous and cold periods were harsh. Where is the danger? Sea levels may rise faster, but there is no deluvian. Any "tipping point" or runaway theorie makes no sense to me in the first place. Ice caps and permafrost siberia has melted before, without a mass extincton. You should always remember that we are in the negative temperature equilibrium of earth since 4 million years, modern humanity is on an interglacial peak today. Which leads me to your sentence "so that's just 2 extra years of coal/oil/gas burning thrown in as a free extra". Here you assume that the estimated Co2 sensitivity is correct, which is wrong for me in the first place, which just leads back to our fundamental disagreements.

  24. grindupBaker

    grindupBakerヶ月 前

    +nyood mono "Nothing special will happen, the arctic ice melted and grew back many times". That's meaningless because it depends what you mean by "special". The increase in GMST by no Arctic sea ice will be modest because GMST will rise by 0.15 degrees June 22 to September 22 each year then cool again in the Arctic winter, so that's just 2 extra years of coal/oil/gas burning thrown in as a free extra, that feedback starting as soon as there's an ice free summer. Also, there'll be an extra 0.02 degrees/ year of GMST increase for 20 years and then it'll taper to zero after the +0.4 degrees total. That's quite a bit though. But where the big effect is going to be is in disruption of the northern hemisphere wind patterns because of the large change in *relative* temperature. I don't know whether the effects will be more severe rain/snow/wind or not but there'll definitely be some noticeable climate change.

    @rhrrtt Well sorry for the misunderstanding, but you defended the 97% pole, this is how our debate started. I know that the emails had been taken out of context.

    ​@nyood mono Don't you get it? I AM a sceptic! Anyone who knows me will tell you that. What I'm NOT is a 'conspiracy theorist'. Climategate is a conspiracy theory. People who wanted to discredit climate change went through some leaked emails between climate scientists looking for stuff they could use. They found some words and phrases which were taken out of context. A number of respected organisations in the US and UK investigated the claims and concluded there was no substance to them. Unfortunately, the climate 'deniers' started spreading this misinformation all over the internet. In any case, scientists cannot afford to lie or use 'tricks' because other scientists will check their data and before long they will be found out and discredited. I could reply to your other points but it will take too long and, quite frankly, I'm not even THAT bothered about climate change since I'm unlikely to still be around by the time it fully kicks in. Just thought Roger Hallam/ Extinction Rebellion were vaguely interesting, though I'm not sure about Hallam's precise analysis of the science - he should have got a proper scientist in for that part.

    @rhrrtt Usaly its the skeptics that have problems with wiki. So in this case wiki is wrong stating that IPCC does not do research? And i did not quote anyone, i have my arguments. Climatgate is about how they think: They are politicians, they use a militaristic tone. Complaining that they "lost" a science magazine to the sKepticts. Just watch anything you can Find with Micheal Mann speaking, then you will realize what kind of people rule this institute, i was stunned. Their conclusions are not sound! They overestimate the sensitivity of Co2 and it is the skeptics that show this over and over. If they were a healthy institute they would try to falsify their own hypothesis, instead they fight the "opposition" and let them look fringe.



    NEVER TRUST OVER AGED PONYTAIL WEARER! REAL SCIENCE PROVES CARBON IS NECESSITY FOR LIFE, the more carbon the greener the earth is & was during the tropical Jurassic period before man. 1992 UN CLIMATE SUMMIT ENABLED UN CONTROL OF EDUCATION & MEDIA IN 192 COUNTRIES ALLOWING UNITED NATIONS TO SOCIALLY ENGINEER SOCIETY TO BELIEVE WHAT ISN'T TRUE and not believe what is true. UN CLIMATE GATE is a world trick to take over & destroy YOUR COUNTRY to be controlled by the UNITED NATIONS under their NEW WORLD ORDER. CLIMATE GATE is 1992 UN CLIMATE SUMMIT plan (that failed in 1972) to destroy AGRICULTURE, FORESTRY, MINING, OIL & GAS INDUSTRIES to break 192 free market Western countries making then easier controlled & compliant with to UN ELITES NEW WORLD ORDER. CARBON TAX is a faster way of breaking everybody since EVERYTHING IS CARBON. After 1992 UN CLIMATE SUMMIT achieved consensus has enabled the UN control of education & media to control & "socially engineer society" into a generation of UN SANCTIONED FOOT SOLDIERS to self destruct countries from the inside out. A generation that doesn't know science, math or social studies, ask no questions and follows like robots & does what they are told. LIBERALs, PROGRESSIVE CONSERVATIVES (UCP), NEW DEMOCRATIC PARTY, GREENS ALL EQUALLY HAVE SIGNED UP FOR & AGREE WITH THE UN's NWO GENOCIDE PLAN! The solution is to reverse the UN indoctrination, outlaw global warming alarmism & given set time to implement or be fined then jailed. DRACONIAN MEASURES FOR DRACONIAN TIMES! UN & ALL AFFILIATES MUST BE BANNED FROM CANADA!!! CARBON TAX FAILED IN AUSTRALIA 7 YEARS AGO, DUMB CANADIANS! 2 YEARS ROBBED FROM CARBON TAX!!! LIBERAL, NDP, PC, UCP are all tied into 1992 UNITED NATION CLIMATE CHANGE DESTRUCTION PACT. ""We all MUST DENY MAN MADE CLIMATE CHANGE!"" The purpose of CLIMATE CHANGE is a trick by the UN & world elites to SOCIALLY ENGINEER SOCIETY out of all industries to break all Western free market countries to be under UN control. THE UN's MASTER PLAN IS TO DESTROY AGRICULTURE, FORESTRY, OIL & GAS TO REDUCE WORLD POPULATION UNDER 500 MILLION! "THEN 'HUNGER GAMES' WILL BEGIN FOR REAL!!!"

    look at the animal rights movement. People have been far more radical than your group and got long sentences. But nothing has changed. For real change violence is needed. Look at the suffragettes. They are not going to put you in prison for sitting on a bridge. The police will just walk you off and poss charge you and you get record. Nothing more. The prisons are already ridiculously overcrowded. i have been locked up. TO get locked up you have to do something more than mild civil disobedience. They are not going to put you in prison when they know you are deliberately trying to get yourself there and not even doing anything much other than blocking roads. I have been active in animal rights for years. I have broken the law. It's not enough. I got banned from Heathrow airport. I have been voting green for thirty years. Why bother asking tories or labour to do anything ?? Why aren't you advocating just don't vote for the bastards. Even after the latest mess people will still vote for the two party system believing that is the only choice they have because that is what we have all been indoctrinated to believe. No one has to accept any power structure. It is a choice . Whether to obey obey obey, consume consume consume. The best thing anyone can do is to use a condom, and refrain from making little carbon copies of themselves and get all gooey and think they are producing miracles. And then blab on about all the sacrifices they have to make for the little carbon copies that it was their choice to have in the first place.

    That's just silly crap as far as Global Mean Surface Temperature (GMST) is concerned. The physical science is "if you heat something then it warms" and it was Sir Isaac Newton many years ago who discovered that it doesn't operate by magic after all. The regional Mean Surface Temperature (MST) and the big effects are highly complex and way beyond my studying but the Global Mean Surface Temperature (GMST) is simple enough for a 14 year old British grammar school child (some Calculus) to get correct if you explain the basic Laws & data to him and then ask him to calculate Global Mean Surface Temperature (GMST) rise. Within +/- 10% no problem.

Therefore the protests will be a nuisance. Nothing more than a group of crazy leftwing, tree huggers. What will happen if you win? What do you expect the government's, elites to do? The society we know must cease. But how many of your friends will give up their mobile phone, their car? It's not until you realise we are all up shit creek with no paddle (stuffed) that people will change. Saying that, I hope and pray I am wrong. Be the change you want to see.

    I have 3 ideas for a US Green New Deal. 1] Sell off half the US gold holdings for as much as possible. Not that this is in any sense necessary, I have agreed with Stephanie Kelton view on what a fiat dollar means for over 6 years now. But, it does help send the message that who will need gold when we are all dead? So, let us get serious about this. 2] Start building a few factories to build solar panels using the best tech we have now, just like we built factories to build B-24 bombers. What the world needs is a glut of solar panels. 3] Double all the unemployment benefit payments for all workers who's job is eliminated by this fight. For just as long or longer then the current system would allow. Then they will not feel so damaged and it will stimulate the communities where the money is spent.

    Arctic methane release is the release of methane from seas and soils in permafrost regions of the Arctic. While a long-term natural process, it is exacerbated by global warming. This results in a positive feedback effect, as methane is itself a powerful greenhouse gas.current warming (just one degree Celisus) has already left a discernible mark on 77 of 94 different ecological processes, including species’ genetics, seasonal responses, overall distribution, and even morphology - i.e. physical traits including body size and shape. About 47 percent of land mammals and 23 percent of birds have already suffered negative impacts form climate change. In all, nearly 700 species in just these two groups are flagging under climate change, according to this research.If global society doesn’t kick its fossil fuel addiction - and quick - scientists estimate that temperatures could rise 4-5 degrees Celsius by the end of the century. Such a rise would be not so much catastrophic, but apocalyptic.Scientists are working frantically to give melanin to white and non-melanated Asian populations or else they will cease to exist by 2100.The master enzyme in all this is tyrosinase. If the gene for this enzyme is defective, the result is a person with albinism, someone who makes no melanin at all. But the most remarkable discovery made by molecular biologists has been that most of us, regardless of skin color, have quite enough tyrosinase in our melanocytes to make us very black. In those of us without eumelanin (brown/black) who are pheomelanin dominant (white), something is preventing the enzyme from functioning at full capacity--and that seems to be a combination of two genetic mechanisms: a switch that causes the cell to make most of the tyrosinase in an inactive form, and a tendency to make a lot of inhibitors of the enzyme. In the body, the effects of either or both of these mechanisms can be modified by such environmental factors as exposure to ultraviolet light. People with albinism are highly sensitive to ultraviolet, which can easily damage skin and eyes,make one prone to many pre-natal diseases,premature aging,myopia and infertility.In animals, melanin comes and goes at the dictates of evolutionary pressures. It is reasonable to assume, then, that we humans have this molecule not because it makes us smarter but primarily because it helps us survive a variety of environmental conditions. Clearly melanin protects us from the ravages of ultraviolet light. Some of the most darkly pigmented people in the world, natives of the North Solomon Islands, almost never get basal cell carcinoma or melanoma, and if they do have melanomas, these tumors arise on the light-skinned soles of their feet. Caucasians in South Africa,Australia,The middle East,India, and South America have high rates of skin cancer which are doubling every year caucasians living in Hawaii, have the highest documented skin cancer rate in the United States. ALL European nations are below replacement levels for indigenous populations yet the word remains silent about this citing economies as the culprit while African nations with worse economies are seeing the highest number of births in decades!Many believe this is the underlying cause for the rise in white supremacist rhetoric and fascism globally.Climate adaptation is surprisingly rarely reported as a cause for the build‐up of reproductive isolation between diverging populations. Fast temperature‐dependent co‐evolution between mitochondrial and nuclear genomes may be particularly likely to lead to hybrid sterility...This may already be apparent as studies show that men from European populations globally have lost 60 percent of their ability t bear children since 1973!Data from nearly 43000 men around the world found that sperm counts dropped by more than half in Western countries.Men even have their own version of a biological clock. Beginning around their mid-30's, male fertility gradually degrades, and while most men produce sperm to their dying day, those past 40 who help conceive have a greater risk of passing on genetic abnormalities to their children, including autism. Globally the oldest male populations are white and Asian adding a double whammy to the situation four decades ago, the average "Western" (European) man had a sperm concentration of 99 million per milliliter. By 2011, that had fallen to 47.1 million and continues to drop by 1.5 percent each year!The researchers found no significant declines for non-Western men, though other studies have found major drops in countries like China and Japan(non-eumelanated Asian populations).Women need to average roughly 2.1 children-enough to replace themselves and their partner, with a spare bit to offset kids who don’t survive to reproductive age-to keep a country’s population stable through birth alone. The U.S. is at 1.8 and dependent on continued immigration to keep the white population growing ironically the anti immigration sentiments currently in the US are speeding up demographic decline and destabilizing the economy. Low sperm counts may also presage a premature death, even among men in the prime of their lives who might seem otherwise healthy.

    Roger, Why are you using the 2014 PIOMASS septmeber minimum graph in 2018? Add the missing 4 years data so people can't accuse you of being misleading. The current trend is 3.2+/-1 per decade, ( suggesting ice-free (in September) sometime between 2026 and 2034, which is still very worrying, but not quite the 2020 or 2017 your graph suggests. Similarly you tell us the 100% guaranteed temp is 1.2C+ 0.5C + 0.5C, without backing it up. I've watched an awful lot of climate change videos too, and I'll give you 1.7C, but not 2.2C _guaranteed_ at this stage (unless you are talking about the long-term equilibrium (i.e. another thousand years), but that's not really very relevant right now - it's the next 50-odd year that really counts). Perhaps you can justify that, but just stating it looks extremely dubious. I think we are well off the path of 'simple arithmetic' at this point. Your basic premise about positive feedbacks is sound, and I agree that the uncertainties is not a good thing - it works both ways. I also think your Extinction rebellion plan is brilliant - I'm signed up. We need things to happen, fast, and I agree with your analysis that this method could well be effective. However it's really important that you get the science right, and are not partaking of McPherson-style catastrophism. It makes us look bad, and helps make us dismissable. Kevin Anderson invariably gets it right, and still makes his points very clearly, and plenty scarily enough - there is no need to exaggerate at this stage. And 'Nitrate sulphide' is not a thing. Perhaps you mean Hydrogen Sulphide. Anyway, thanks you for your efforts. I really hope it works, but please adjust this talk if you give it again.

    We are in a deepshit but we don't know exactly how deep it is. Don't believe anybody who says we are going extinct this year or that. Because earth system is a complex system and we don't know it's exact mechanisms. Regarding the climate change; we don't know the feedback mechanisms, if water vapour reflets or absorbs more heat, whether thermafrost started to melt or not, if so what would be the effects, what exaclty would be the amount of dimming effect, if it stops immediately what would be consequences, if the resulting consequence would be instant heating how long it would continue, what would the effect of climate change to agriculture exactly etc. etc. I am not a climate sceptic, I don't deny humans altered earth's climate but we don't know exaclty what would be the consequences. Nobody knows it. Effects or timings. I think one of the psychological dimension that effects the thinking of the doomers is that they hate themselves and their lifes. They deep down desire their life, world, civilization to end. Some of them find their lifes so boring that, they desire any change even the end of sentient life on earth. Apocalyptic world view supply a very convenient escape route from responsibility also. Responsibility in terms of nearly everything, It's basic premise is this; civilization, world, sentient life will disappear in a near future and my pathetic, disgusting life with it. It is not about my individual decisions or actions, that's the way it is, beyond my control, I am not to blame. Mechanism that will bring it is on the way, it can’t be reversed, nobody can do anything about it, especially me. In fact it is a good thing that my life will also end with it, because I hate it. Better still, everybody’s life will end, so I don’t need to envy those who seems to be contend with their life and also I won’t miss anything because everything will end. I don’t need to do anything individually, I don’t need to act, I don’t need to decide on anything, I don’t even need to commit suicide because even that will occur automatically.

    And what does the time lord suggest we do about Volcano's ? Researchers say new evidence has found there was a worse time to be alive - the year 536 AD. The Earth was plunged into darkness for 18 months when a thick cloud blocked the sun - causing temperatures to drop, crops to fail and people to starve. Temperatures that summer plunged to between 1.5C and 2.5C (36.5F). The decade that followed would be the coldest in the previous 2,300 years. "It was the beginning of one of the worst periods to be alive, if not the worst year," Michael McCormick, historian and archaeologist, told Science Magazine. The source of the cloud so thick it obscured the sun in the sixth century has long puzzled historians, but ultra precise analysis of ice from a Swiss glacier has unlocked the mystery. A team led by Mr McCormick, chair of the Harvard University initiative for the science of the human past, and glaciologist Paul Mayewski, of the climate change institute of the University of Maine (UM) in Orono, found an enormous volcanic eruption in Iceland was likely to blame.

    As usual a lot of people here fail to either analyze data or believe we we have more time. As the last ice in the arctic melts in 2019/2020 scorching temps will mean higher crop losses, famine, then extinction. The people who died in the Paradise, CA fire were mostly Trump supporters. Karma and poor choices have consequences folks.

    Extinction Rebellion and the Progressive Dem wins are a start, but both are too optimistic and too slow. Here's why: 1) An ice free arctic in 2019/2020 ensures an abrupt spike in temperatures, massive crop losses, already down 20%-30% in 2018, global famine and extinction in well under 5 years due to 1,600 nuclear facilities failing catastrophically when skilled labor stops maintaining them. 2) Plankton biomass is down 50% and falling fast, which means oxygen levels and ozone protecting us from UV is also falling, while our backup oxygen machine, the Amazon, is being destroyed by Brazil's new president. If we remain paralyzed or lethargic we are toast. 3) SIMPLE EFFECTIVE SOLUTIONS: A $1 tax on every gallon of petro at the pump and spent helping cities make a rapid ONE year transition to zero emission power and fuels. 4) To ensure you hit targets simply stop relying on election cycles. PUBLIC GRAND JURIES, already supported by the Supreme Court, which anyone can form and in their first month INDICT, RECALL AND REPLACE politicians at all levels in under 30 days starting with your local Mayor and County Supervisors, then Governor and State A.G. if any one of them hesitates, stalls, ignores grave issues, makes an ignorant statement proving them unfit for public office, or makes a single false promise, called "Intent to Defraud" and "Gross/Willful Negligence" which thereby endangers human life. James Hansen's federal suit on behalf of kids employs a similar tactic. A coalition of Mayors so empowered by AG's and Governors can move mountains at the state level and a coalition of Governors backed by Mayors can change the nation, the planet and hopefully our grim future. 5) Using your Grand Juries, Mayors, local D.A's and State A.G. and a coalition of Governors during the second 30 day period simply indict and prosecute criminal cases against Members of Congress to accelerate their acceptance of a progressive agenda, which must lay out an aggressive ONE YEAR OR BUST plan to make every American community zero emission. The well paid jobs alone make the case, as does GreenTech exports given our ballooning Natl. Debt. BONUS: the same process can defund any corporation or billionaire who funds destructive processes, banking billions of additional funds for local projects. In short, feed on the corruption like piranhas. Lawyers love a good feeding fest. 6) Once that's fully underway we'll need to deploy geo-engineering solutions, such as nurturing plankton (oxygen/CO2 exchange), reforestation, desert remediation, hazmat cleanup, eliminating plastics and focus Intl. pressure, if not our military, on protecting the Amazon and other rainforests, converting deserts worldwide into lush,, green carbon sinks. 7) Additionally, sad as it may be, while we eliminate CO2/methane emissions and reduce greenhouse gases and ocean carbonic acid levels we'll need solar radiation mgmt; i.e. sulphur dioxide paritcles, for a brief period to IMMEDIATELY halt trends leading to an ice free arctic in 2019/2020. If we reverse that we buy time and if not, nothing else we do really matters. 8) If we do ALL of this we might dodge extinction. If we do some of this or are too slow, there won't be much left still functioning during the 2020 election and perhaps nothing left alive on Earth by 2022-2025. You have months, barely; but certainly not 12 years or even 2. You can't argue with physics, nor should you waste time arguing with corrupt or ignorant politicians. You don't have any time to waste. Just indict and prosecute a few and watch how fast the rest of them get a clue. 9) There is hope. The Mauna Loa CO2 graph (Keeling Curve) clearly shows a decrease in CO2 levels 6 months a year. If we amplify that and work to reverse CO2 all year long we mighg actually drive down atmospheric CO2 and ocean carbonic acid levels faster than we thought possible. 10) Discussions about population and action by other nations aren't worthless, but given our experience and budgets dominating nations, these challenges are minor compared to learning to harness our own political bodies. Its not that tough if we try and if we fail, we all die. Choose wisely. We won't and thankfully at least our votes count., back to a Hometown Grand Jury near you.

    If warming to + 2 degrees celcious could be catastrophic for the world why it didn't happen before as showed in this Greenland ice core graph: Recent presentation by Professor Valentina Zharkova: The Solar Magnet Field and the Terrestrial Climate: According to her presentation we're heading to a climate change but going cooling instead of warming more severe than the one 8000 years ago. This could lead to collapse of agriculture hence massive global famine.

    Freddy van Manen grindupBaker + Freddy van Manen "If warming to + 2 degrees celcious could be catastrophic for the world why it didn't happen before as showed in this Greenland ice core graph". Because the surface temperature of Greenland and the North Atlantic region isn't the same as the Global Mean Surface Temperature (GMST) and it doesn't change the same, not even close. 126,000 to 122,000 years ago when Earth's Global Mean Surface Temperature (GMST) was 0.5 degrees higher than now the surface of the Greenland ice sheet (GIS) was 5-8 degrees higher than now (from a Greenland ice core proxy like you reference) so it's 10-16x as much for Greenland so when Global Mean Surface Temperature (GMST) becomes 1.0 degrees higher than now the surface of the Greenland ice sheet (GIS) will be 10-16 degrees higher than now. It's massive. I'm sure it'll actually be a bit less like 7-12 degrees higher than now for the first few hundred years but it's still massive. That's why half the ice is now already guaranteed to be gone off Greenland in the next 300-700 years with no more warming at all. It happened before in the same situation and it'll happen again. That's why. Boy was that ever an easy one.

    Those who lack 5-10kwh per year of electricity today won't miss it much when its gone, while those who use 20kwh just to get out of the house in the morning are doomed. As the bible aptly predicted; the meek shall inherit the earth...apparently since they need so much less to survive and still be half happy. This theorem doesn't predict an easy future for the 1%.

    Those impoverished souls you describe are the early casualties, the 3-7B we get to bury (or eat) early, or who feed the jackals. Those who remain will still either deny reality or wonder "What can we do or could've done?" and yet still breed and pollute with vigor, and when pressed to change, can't or just won't and thus become the second wave of casualties. Those folks off grid who fail to predict regional climate shifts are likely to become toast or radiation or UV or famine or pandemic victims, while a few might, maybe, form a few isolated hellhole pockets that survive, though odds are against them being around long. Authoring 140 sites, roughly a dozen with solutions for citizens and politicians alike doesn't seem to move the needle much. Writing to politicians, even to progressives is also near useless. Telling friends/assocs/strangers, yet another wasted breath. Not one of them will switch their lifestyle, rather I've found they entrench, enjoying the last bit of fine wine as Rome burns. A tiny fraction actually take the steps to try and survive while a few others make meaningful changes, though far from enough, and a few others, very few, cry for the geo-engineering changes that might buy us time while we sort it out. Altogether its an uncoordinated feeding frenzy with very little effective progress overwhelmed by accelerating disasters. Its getting pretty close to time to jump and pull the ripcord.

    @OwlNation Legal My friend MOST people in the world don't use 1 gallon of gas per year, most people in the world live in extreme poverty and are forced to live in energy austerity. People like you are obviously the kind who have moved into the radical activist end that Roger talks about. And so- you are the change that we need. Methods become irrelevant at that point, the important thing is that people know and behave accordingly- which you do. So all power to you.

    Methods are based on data as are beliefs, and naturally I understand most don't share either which is exactly why we are headed straight to extinction. Its not like I expect everyone to use less than 1 gallon of gas per year as I do.

    So if we’ve lost 75% of natural arctic sea ice so far, why do we still have winter season on queue in North America. Wouldn’t the albedo / dark water effect already have eliminated 75% of the Winter cold? What is the tipping point to complete climate change with regards to winter season. 90% loss of sea ice and then it just ‘happens’ ?

    Does not even matter. The arctic as a sea melted and grew back many times. Climate will change and man will adept, thats all. And man made C02 plays a very minor role.

    Paul Beckwith has some good explanations to your questions- exponential effects plus multiple feedbacks. Break a piece of ice in two and you double the surface area- which makes it melt quicker, so doubles, quadruples, plus methane release- exponential.

    A predicament has no solutions, only consequences. Nothing we do will change our fate. Doom is no longer a philosophical position but the fate of most living creatures on this planet. Humans find themselves in a perilous state from their ability to deny their culpability, a talent that insures their destruction. It is why things continue to worsen.

    If we can delay some of the worst consequences we may have enough time to implement solutions. Thorium LFTR next gen nuclear can create a carbon neutral system creating synthetic hydrocarbons, yes, you can make petrol from sea water, they can already do it at a US naval base- which would mean we take CO2 out of the sea and turn it into petrol and diesel. Which means all existing vehicles do not need to be replaced. You can run LFTRs on existing nuclear waste- the UK has the world's largest stockpile of nuclear waste. New Graphene solar panels- 1/3 the size, 3 times the power output, cheaper than silicon and strong as steel. We need the time to make things like this possible. For that we need action now.

    Yep, definitely, we MUST repeal the "Laws of Thermodynamics" - call your Congressperson now Actually this is a fine lecture. He is a political radical, not a scientist - although much of his science seems consistent with what I hear from purely academic lectures. We are at a time that requires major change - radical, revolutionary, disruptive - this kind of change will be driven by the destabilization of our global climates - So we should aim for human civility must promote the willful, thoughtful and hopefully non-violent change. Anyone set on influencing the future, must use strategies and tactics that are new, because we old folks have tried everything. New action is necessary. I don't know what to do now, but we will discover and uncover our future. Lessons not learned, will be repeated.
