Scientists Warn: Nine Climate Tipping Points Now ‘Active’ – Could Threaten the Existence of Human Civilization

Global Warming Threatens Human Civilization

More than half of the climate tipping points identified a decade ago are now “active,” a group of leading scientists have warned.

This threatens the loss of the Amazon rainforest and the great ice sheets of Antarctica and Greenland, which are currently undergoing measurable and unprecedented changes much earlier than expected.

“We must admit that we have underestimated the risks of unleashing irreversible changes, where the planet self-amplifies global warming.” — Johan Rockström, Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research

This “cascade” of changes sparked by global warming could threaten the existence of human civilizations.

Evidence is mounting that these events are more likely and more interconnected than was previously thought, leading to a possible domino effect.

In an article published in the journal Nature on November 27, 2019, the scientists call for urgent action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to prevent key tipping points, warning of a worst-case scenario of a “hothouse,” less habitable planet.

“A decade ago we identified a suite of potential tipping points in the Earth system, now we see evidence that over half of them have been activated,” said lead author Professor Tim Lenton, director of the Global Systems Institute at the University of Exeter.

“The growing threat of rapid, irreversible changes means it is no longer responsible to wait and see. The situation is urgent and we need an emergency response.”

Co-author Johan Rockström, director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, said: “It is not only human pressures on Earth that continue rising to unprecedented levels.

“It is also that as science advances, we must admit that we have underestimated the risks of unleashing irreversible changes, where the planet self-amplifies global warming.

“This is what we now start seeing, already at 1°C global warming.

“Scientifically, this provides strong evidence for declaring a state of planetary emergency, to unleash world action that accelerates the path towards a world that can continue evolving on a stable planet.”

In the commentary, the authors propose a formal way to calculate a planetary emergency as risk multiplied by urgency.

Tipping point risks are now much higher than earlier estimates, while urgency relates to how fast it takes to act to reduce risk.

Exiting the fossil fuel economy is unlikely before 2050, but with temperature already at 1.1°C above pre-industrial temperature, it is likely Earth will cross the 1.5°C guardrail by 2040. The authors conclude this alone defines an emergency.

Nine active tipping points:

  1. Arctic sea ice
  2. Greenland ice sheet
  3. Boreal forests
  4. Permafrost
  5. Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation
  6. Amazon rainforest
  7. Warm-water corals
  8. West Antarctic Ice Sheet
  9. Parts of East Antarctica

The collapse of major ice sheets on Greenland, West Antarctica and part of East Antarctica would commit the world to around 10 meters of irreversible sea-level rise.

Reducing emissions could slow this process, allowing more time for low-lying populations to move.

The rainforests, permafrost, and boreal forests are examples of biosphere tipping points that if crossed result in the release of additional greenhouse gases amplifying warming.

“Scientifically, this provides strong evidence for declaring a state of planetary emergency.” — Johan Rockström

Despite most countries having signed the Paris Agreement, pledging to keep global warming well below 2°C, current national emissions pledges — even if they are met — would lead to 3°C of warming.

Although future tipping points and the interplay between them is difficult to predict, the scientists argue: “If damaging tipping cascades can occur and a global tipping cannot be ruled out, then this is an existential threat to civilization.

“No amount of economic cost-benefit analysis is going to help us. We need to change our approach to the climate problem.”

Professor Lenton added: “We might already have crossed the threshold for a cascade of inter-related tipping points.

“However, the rate at which they progress, and therefore the risk they pose, can be reduced by cutting our emissions.”

Though global temperatures have fluctuated over millions of years, the authors say humans are now “forcing the system,” with atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration and global temperature increasing at rates that are an order of magnitude higher than at the end of the last ice age.

  1. “The growing threat of rapid, irreversible changes means it is no longer responsible to wait and see. The situation is urgent and we need an emergency response.”

    Sorry, but that statement is utterly without merit. The word irreversible is a claim no one can make. Everyone wants to blame carbon, CO2 in particular, yet several times in Earth’s history, CO2 levels were higher than they are now and there is even evidence those limits came about much more rapidly than anything humanity is capable of. Scare tactics such as these do no one any good. No one knows what an even 5 degree rise in average temps could mean to growing seasons and our ability to sustain even larger populations than the 7 + billion Earth now hosts. There were those that guaranteed disaster at 5 billion, how’d that work out. Projection, especially when it folds into political rhetoric, has no place in science. Just stop, you’re embarrassing yourselves.

    • So what’s your background that gives you a reason to refute the scientific evidence?

      • He thinks for himself…. you should try it.

          Lol this thread is cancer. I want humans to go extinct now. Let’s just keep going.

          • Vote_Purge_2020 | December 1, 2019 at 4:31 am |

            With this strong article as backing evidence I vote we have a world wide purge day to help reduce the human impact on this planet. Also maybe if we didn’t use fossil fuels and the government didn’t kill that guy that developed the car that ran on hydrogen

        • Thinking for yourself is one thing. Dealing with hypotheses, data and factual evidence is a whole nother story.

        • Think for yourself is great advice. There’s no reason to trust educated specialists.

          I hope you heed that advice next time you need medical treatment. Think for yourself and perform surgery on yourself and your family.

          You obviously know better than others.

          Just think for yourself! 🤓

          • “There’s no reason to trust educated specialist” indeed you are an idiot, that is reason enough to not trust you!

        • The scientific evidence has been twisted to suit the climate activists. CO2 has been at higher levels in the past compared to now and no catastrophic events occurred. Why do people persist in their theories?

          • The last time co2 was this high was 3-5 million years ago. Sea level was 10-20 meters higher. No people were living in massive cities along the coasts. What ignorance do you all show by repeating this “it was higher before and nothing bad happened” bs without even looking it up. Go back to listening to rush limbo and quit typing – you are gumming up the discussion on how we move forward.

          • OK,Russian troll. crawl back up Putin’s butt from whence you came.

        • It’s a self-reinforcing feedback loop. Doesn’t anyone listen to Guy McPherson?

    • “Projection, especially when it folds into political rhetoric, has no place in science.”

      One of the most wrong statements anywhere on the internet today.

      Projections are a natural part of science. Testing projections is one of the key elements of scientific method.

      Lie all you want about anthropogenic climate change, but if you attack the fundamental supports of critical thinking, don’t expect to win any arguments.

      • this is beyond scientists,,these are signs of the end and Jesus is coming in a few years,just give your life to him that you may be saved,this is just the beginning,more trouble is coming,just surrender to him an cure that stress,,Matthew 24

        • Go ahead and believe in magic, I like science.

        • So all I have to do is believe in Jesus and I will be saved from all possible hazards? How wonderful! I just have to throw away all my critical thinking in order to believe in an ancient fable. It sounds so easy. Not much of a challenge, really.

      You can’t say this point of view is utterly without merit. A lot of data has been collected and analyzed to show that the current rates of greenhouse gases are rising at the fastest rate in geologic time. Also the data for ocean temperatures and changes in thicknesses of ice show a trend that is unprecedented. There are fossil fuel interests that “cherry pick” pieces of information and misrepresent them in deceptive ways to cloud the narrative about what is truly happening. Yes there have been times in the past where CO2 levels were higher than now but these levels were reached over a much longer time span.
      Man’s arrival on the planet has coincided with the greatest ecological changes Earth has ever seen. Since the exploitation of fossil fuels, change has been accelerating at an unprecedented rate. The wealthy establishment has exploited this bonanza of cheap energy to fuel a period of unprecedented growth that has brought us to the edge of catastrophe. They are fighting back with false narratives so this growth in wealth may continue, all at the expense of the rest of the living creatures we shared this planet with. The rate of extinctions happening now is a testament to the mistakes of our greedy ways. We must control population growth, end the implementation of an economic growth model that continues to be based on continuous growth and begin a new phase of existence that is truly sustainable.
      It can be done but we need to start now. Your misinformed use of a few facts about our past is merely a strategy to maintain the status quo. You must contemplate an existence fueled by a decrease in consumption of resources. The sooner the better.

  2. Fossil fuel does contribute to the warming, but also the increase of the world’s population, room full of people is warmer than than an empty one. Plant more trees and vegetation. Having government plant trees, vegetation educating the public its importance, especially the third world countries will surely cool things down.

  3. These Exiter’s “wise guys” avoided mentioning the real reason of the Earth warming up which is simply a cyclical thing that is happening to the whole solar system while traveling in the Milky Way, just saying.

    • Not to mention all the WMD testing through the 40’s-60’s in America alone. What caused the destruction of our planet? The invention of the airplane. Before the airplane there were no World Wars or Global conflicts because you didn’t know about other countries and if you did the only means of travel of by ship for sea and buggy/automobile for land.

    • Please reveal your source for this. Incidentally, fox news is not a scientific source. Peer reviewed scientific paper.

    Every where I look I see people saying we’re killing the world that we take take take not giving back. That we as a hole will kill ourselves. But people forget as a hole we will survive. Mankind are the most adaptive creatures. We will live on. I’m not saying we don’t need to change the way we do things. But why blame people for what the Earth is doing to its self. We may not be helping it. But the world is going through a cycle. It happens. People should open there eyes an look at the world. Instead of trying to scare everyone.

    • True, but since the beginning of the 20th century humans have been destroying the planet in a way that hasn’t been seen since the last ice age. WMD testing & usage, reactors blowing up, global wars, factories pumping out deadly toxins and the burning of fossil fuels just to name a few.
      Everything that is happening now and is going to happen is 100% our fault. It probably will effect us, but will certainly effect our children and grandchildren. Look at Venice or the increase in number and strength of hurricanes, typhoons, wildfires, tornadoes, floods and blizzards. Nothing we do now will change anything. We didn’t think about our planet as being finite, now we have to try and survive the effects of the damage we did.

    • Whole not hole

  5. Talk is great ,but… Would be nice to see someone with a shovel.

  6. So why are we paying our mortgages if we’re all going to die in the imminent future? May as well tell the banks you’re going to travel instead.

      • No, she doesn’t believe it. The Obama’s bought a $15 million ocean front estate on an island, they don’t believe it either. Climate change (human caused) is just another scam for money, control and power. All these so called experts are paid to back the narrative. All the top scientists who refute the dogma, are ignored and attacked and labeled liars. It has been exposed, that all the temperature and ocean levels used to push the panic button are cherry picked or just plain false. The Earths climate changes in a cyclical pattern. Warm periods, moderate and ice age. Ice ages are the only one to fear until the final warm period, when the sun starts swelling and eventually engulfs the Earth.

    • Absolutely ridiculous. This is the same rhetoric scientists proposed back in the 1970s and 1980s. Back then, Kalamalka lake in British Columbia Canada would be dry by 2020. The lake is not dry. In fact, the lake flooded 2 years ago. Dams had to be opened on the Washington side to relieve water levels. This article is pure garbage. 10 meter sea level rise in the next 30 years? That’s 32 feet 10 inches. Bullshit.

    no one is game to mention population,in case they offend the church,even a one child policy wont save us now,7 billion people is a fallacy,,,,In the Philippines the censors would visit my neighbors where there were always at least 15 people hanging out but only two were ever recorded ,.This goes on all over Asian countries because of their lack of trust in the law and who can blame them with a Philippine president who will shoot you because he doesn’t like you
    I was farming flood meadows in the Uk and just by changing the grass cutting season I annihilated hundreds of bird and insect species

    No worries man is destroying his own nest with indulgence,I,m of to Black Friday now,thank god for after pay and then a visit to the church to get them to preach sexual abstinence and sing a little song “”Thank heaven for little boys !!!”””

    • You’re a sad illustration of how easy it is to control a human mind with just moderate gaslighting skills…

      • Listen climate change deniers. Your low rent mcdonald big mac degrees and idiotic talking point are all defunct. Best move on to flat eath theories or something else. Each of you is an idiot beyond all reckoning. An education isn’t gotten reading propaganda on the ol intranet.

        • Think for yourself please. A century of failed predictions, the ignoring of the scientific process and doomsday scenarios should tell you something. Altered graphs, altered temperature data…the list goes on. Just accept it because they’re scientists they say….

    • What happens during life and at about what age in your opinion does something happen to make someone as arrogant and as stupid as you are!?

    • Oh, don’t worry about the population….. the wars and disasters that will follow global warming will take care of that. For example: 70% of Bangladesh is just 1m above sea level. 163 million people live in Bangladesh so assuming at least half of the population will have to move when sea level rises 3 feet, where will they go?
      The number of Syrians who fled Syria due to war (which arguably was caused by global warming destroying crops) was only about 6.7 million and Europe is all in an uproar. What do you think will happen when at least 80 million people show up in neighboring countries to Bangladesh? War, disease, starvation in a part of the world which is armed with nukes and at the brink of war today.

  8. Nothing here worth reading, just more of the same climate alarmism that has been spread since the 70’s, all of which has failed to come true.

  9. If this issue is truly as critically urgent as some scientists and their suporters in the media say it is, there should be a series of internationally televised debates where supporters and “deniers” present their evidence, and allow right-thinking observers to decide what the truth really is.

  10. This is a pile of alarmist bullshit.

  11. The infrared absorption spectrum of CO2 was already completely saturated even at pre-industrial levels of CO2 in the atmosphere (~280 ppm). There is no heat-trapping ability left for CO2, even at 10 times the current levels, even if every last bit of fossil fuel were burned all at once. The purported warming effects of increased CO2 are PHYSICALLY IMPOSSIBLE, and have no backing in physics or chemistry. This is the greatest scientific hoax in history.

  12. Holy fuck there’s a bunch of clueless deniers here.
    There’s no warning potential left in CO2?? Lol go look at Venus and see how that works out.

    Has the earth had more CO2 in the atmosphere and a much higher temperature before? Yes. North America also had an “in-land sea” then, where the gulf of Mexico stretched all the way up to the Dakotas.

    But humans are adaptable creatures! Obviously, we should keep burning fossil fuels bc that’s better than not flooding where 20% of current human population lives.

    • The point being it’s bull shit pal… lol… there is zero as humans that we can do to intervene in this cycle…. you people are scary!

    Time and money would be better spent on planetary defense. Ya, go ahead and change the way our population is fed haven’t seen any “electric” tractors or combines yet or trucking and railway systems. But new green deal nuts still travel in their private jets. The hypocrisy is unbelievable. But go ahead spend all of our financial resources on that “existential threat” so we can have clean air and no oceans rising as that huge asteroid or comet is barrelling at us at over 20,000 mph, which scientists all agree is a 100% certainty. So which would you rather have first? An Earth 2 or 3 degrees hotter that maybe Man made with some uncertainty? Or an Earth that is burnt to a cinder before a for lack of a better word “nuclear” winter? Just saying.

  14. The scientists are just pushing this cause their grants to research run out of money in like 16 months.

  15. You can’t deny that glaciers are melting and sea levels are rising…

    • No one is denying it…. we’re Just not going to be sheep and allow globalists to use it as control towards their agenda and that’s exactly what it is; that’s not unhinged, tinfoil hat nonsense ! Wake the hell up!!…

      • Look at the history of these “tinfoil hat” arguments: lead pipes and paint can’t do anyone harm, humans are incapable of damaging the ozone layer, dumping our chemicals into the ground doesn’t have anything to do with increased cancer rates, the list goes on and on. In all of these situations someone raised the alarms but people unaware of the facts said they were wrong. Wanting a healthy environment for myself and my kids is something everyone should get behind.

        • CO2 is plant food not polution. Greenhouses have an average of 700ppm and humans can handle about 1200ppm before negative reactions are experienced.

      If science is about consensus, I vote that AGW is a hoax on mankind, that the astrophysicists are right in their argument that sunspot activity has a major role in cloud formation and keeping the planet cool. Until the climatistas address that phenomena, I will continue to believe so. We are currently in a period of a sunspot lull, meaning that we shall have many a cold, smowy winter ahead, The climatistas fear that their pig trough of money will dry up and shall fefend their positions like mother bears defending their cubs from a threat.

      If the climatistas have a case worth defending, let them put their cards on the table, now. They have been libeling/slandering their oposition for years and stll getting nowhere. If they continue to withhold their base data and methodology from open review, then cut them off from funding and declare them in default.

  20. Okay those of you denying this is dumb. You must be boomers…anyways funny you all claim this is a scare tactic but its because you’ll die before you deal with it. Your selfish fucks. It’s thinking like that which has caused so many issues to the present date. You sound like the idiot who said agent orange was safe. Several 3-armed and 2-headed mutants later and thousands of fucked up vets yall finally learned a lesson. But look how long that lasted. This is why coral is dying, animals are going extinct. And certain special condition sensitive canaries are dying as if the planet is outta balance and disaster is coming. That’s what they were made to do…so your saying the solo purpose of such creatures are even a hoax? Yeah they just die to fake biopressure issues and more right? ….simple minded organisms yet you claim your adapatable? So does the government not create illnesses too? Oh like the new e.coli strain they just created and came out to publicly announce? Wake up…before its to late. Remember there are other things to fear too…like the black pope and his goal which will soon be done since the world cant see that the United nations is just the new version of the failed league of nations that was stopped for making a 1 government controlled world. You all need to think outside of the box that tells you what’s real and what to believe in all day. Convince those that what they see is all there is too see and you got them. For when and explanation of the greater picture arises…..they shall laugh in the face of it…

  30. We’re going to kill ourselves, and each other over this. And that’s what this dumb species deserves.
    We have evidence that can’t be ignored, a short memory (I don’t ever remember my area being like it was, and some of my friends act like everything is normal), and governments all over the world pretending to care, but doing nothing.

    We’re going to kill ourselves, and as many other species as possible in the process. And almost all in the name of money that nobody but a handful of people will ever see.

    • Do you get that it’s a cycle you genius? Do you understand that that’s what it is? Or do you completely rule that out because the people telling you otherwise absolutely have your best interest at heart? You fucking sheep are scary. And you’re far more dangerous than climate change..

      • Do you understand that your view is utterly defunct. That you are using facts that have been twisted by people more clever than yourself? You dont have the fucking brains to understand how god awful stupid this is. Deniers are uneducated miseducated fools. People who understand climate change are all college educated. Near unanimous aggr÷ment and its bad for business and oil. Its going to be horrible expensive and difficult to reverse and you idiots think we’re lying for the money? DUMB a$$ MF.

  31. Deny or not? 30 yrs lived in Alaska. The changes were dramatic and heartbreaking. Left out of sorrow. Deniers will be sad when they lose what they love like i lost Alaska. Maybe not. Most deniers dont even know life outside the city. Breaks my heart to see the earth change as fast as Alaska has. Blows my mind to see folks denials. Some just like rude talk. Ever notice how deniers are so rude sounding?

    • It’s not denial! What the hell is wrong with you people?! It’s being an independent thinker! You automatically believe that what you saw happening in Alaska has to be from CO2 so we’ve gotta shut everything down! Grow the fuck up! It could continue and it could get worse and it’s a cycle!

      • Ooh the big independant thinker. The old i’m more independent than you argument. You facts and arguments only work on the uneducated and their spread is proof people are stupid.

  32. Dire warning by scientists yet no mentioned in the article about the single most important thing all of us can do to help lower our CO2 footprint, go vegan, is mentioned.

  33. The Earth-humans and their planet are suffering from diverse terrible visitations caused solely and exclusively by the human being himself/herself. These already existing terrible things/terrible visitations, however, will multiply manifoldly until finally everything goes completely overboard.
    The human being of Earth is being tormented by famines, energy shortages, rampantly spreading diseases, environmental pollution, Ausartung, terrorism, dictatorship, anarchism, slavery, excessive increase of hazardous waste, racial hatred, food shortage, destruction of rain forests, the greenhouse effect, water pollution/contamination, hatred towards asylum-seekers; radioactive contamination and chemical contamination of waters, air, plants, food, human beings and animals and other creatures. Crime, murder, mass murders, manslaughter; alcoholism, hatred of strangers, hatred of foreigners, oppression, hatred of the next one, extremism, sectarianism, drug addiction, overpopulation, extinction of animal species, war, Gewalt, torture and the death penalty, general mismanagement, water contamination, extinction of plant species; hatred, vice, jealousy, lovelessness, unlogic, wrong humanitarianism, housing shortage, traffic getting out of hand, destruction of cultivated land, unemployment, the collapse of health care, the collapse of care for the elderly, destruction of the whole nature, the collapse of waste removal, and the difficulty to find living space etc., are other terrible things. – In spite of the many efforts, the problems are not decreasing but, instead, continue to rise steadily in direct proportion to the increase of the entire population.

    My chicken were fed hormones by the ton,my strawberry field was sprayed every 3 days[dont wash em skin em ]all the greens were not green but blue with nitrogen .Like the above I laughed at Rachael Carson and her book Silent Spring Years later I read her book again and decided to count the chemicals I used on the farm ,I gave up at 220 After Vietnam the US had mountains of agent orange so they sold it to us to kill the weeds as 24D

  35. The human being of Earth has always tried to fight an old terrible thing with a new one; but, truthfully, this is a way leading into a final depravity. The scenario may be compared to a debt that grows immeasurably to the point where it can no longer even be paid, as is the case when an individual goes into debt and attempts to pay it off by going further into debt, only to furnish security for this debt by incurring an even greater debt. The same holds true when the human being of Earth fights old terrible things/visitations with new ones. Yet the human being of Earth frequently acts and thinks very often completely illogically, which is why he/she attempts — contrary to all rationality — to eliminate an old terrible thing by introducing a newly conceived and newly caused one. This is illogical in every respect.
    When an energy source runs short, the human being of Earth simply plans and builds new, more powerful nuclear-, oil-, coal-, and hydro-power plants, regardless of the fact that through the utilisation of nuclear- as well as oil- and coal-power plants, the environment becomes enormously polluted, while nuclear radiation, which escapes from nuclear power plants, also endangers the whole of terrestrial life. Apart from this, all these new energy sources upon completion over a 3–7-year construction period, will have already become partially outdated, or do not have enough capacity to cover the energy demand. Truthly, during the time of building, the excessive birth rate and therewith the overpopulation have not remained stable, but have steadily increased. Many hundreds of millions of human beings are born worldwide during the construction phase of a power plant – and, of course, all these millions of newly added human beings once again will require additional energy. Therefore, it is clearly obvious that the incessant increase of the Earth’s population drives up the requirement for energy. Because of this, the Earth suffers from an ever increasing and an ever faster exploitation; as a result, ever more nuclear power plants have to be constructed and put into service, as well as other types of power plants, through which the environment and the whole of life experience an ongoing increasing endangerment and destruction.

  36. Yadda, yadda, yadda, we might have aborted the genius who solves this, but if we didn’t even I know there are carbon eating lifeforms, and it may cost 100 billion, but a space umbrella over the equator would put a bid sent on solar heating, not to mention that NASA confirmed solar spot increase calculations or Carl Sagan predicting a new ice age. Californians spend a few billion extra on special gasoline for a fractional marginal effect. This is all about climate nazis taking control of private businesses hence total world domination.

    went to Russia not long ago .A trainload of fertilizer was delivered to a farm but delivery was late and the crop was already in ,who was responsible for the error ,after all it was only a little Russian error,,So they decided to dump it all in the river
    Out on the tundra timber trucks were stationary ,they could no longer drive ,when asked if things would get better a scientist said “at the coming of the next ice age”

  38. I can describe 7 billion reasons why we need population control.

  39. Since time immemorial, the truth has always sounded hard and therefore true love, love for the next one and humanitarianism sounds equally hard, because all of these values demand logical thinking and acting from the human being. The same also holds true for the problem-solving of the terrestrial humankind, which means that only and exclusively a population reduction, through stringent birth controls, can resolve all existing major terrible things and that inhumane aid must not be given.
    The laws of nature apply to human beings of Earth as well, which each seeing person may easily recognise: Wherever there is a region in which the population of a particular animal species suddenly increases and runs the risk that the region concerned can no longer feed the increasing population, rampantly spreading diseases occur that decimate the increasing and excessive population of animals. Furthermore, it appears in such cases that the overly large population simply dies of famine or falls prey to their natural enemies because they are weak from hunger. This is how nature preserves its natural population, wherethrough in one stretch of land, always only just as many faunal life forms live as this region can feed/support/sustain. Only the human being as a thinking Wesen/individual acts contrary to this natural law and tramples upon it

  42. Some of the comments demonstrate a lack of scientific understanding, and a lack of how scientists work from every scientific discipline, and conduct peer reviews on an international scale. Far more complex than hanging a few conspiracy theories together. As an older generation person I see human ignorance, greed, rage, superiority being a real threat to our only planet; yet in every scientific thought there are such commonalities that we need to put human energy into adapting,preparing and surviving a very hazardous world. If we can’t do this for ourselves then we need to do it for animals and all other living species that share this beautiful earth, because it sure isn’t their fault. I hear the scientists and observe the changes already. If we choose to spill political ideologies then we are just “fiddling while our world burns.”

  46. We are going see things we don’t want to see more frequently. It has begun.

  47. More hyperbolic alarmism, yawn…

  48. “it is likely Earth will cross the 1.5°C guardrail by 2040.” There have been 2 time periods in recent history before “human- related CO2” where the planet was 3 to 5 degrees warmer than it is now and they were considered the “climatic optimum”. They around 1000 A.D. and 1600 A.D.. During these times growing seasons were maximized which resulted in an abundance of food and the general well-being of people was very good. Global warming is always associated with the expansion of life. During periods of global cooling such as what happened during the Dark Ages is when the population of many regions of the globe decreased. The cooling at these times caused a decrease in growing seasons which resulted in starvation and weaker immune systems. This allows opportunistic diseases such as bubonic and black plagues to propagate. Right now we actually have 20% more trees than what was predicted decades ago. Articles like this are absolutely used against the uninformed to control people. There have been lab tests on plants where they were grown at CO2 levels of 200ppm and over 700ppm. The plants grown at 700ppm were at least 20% larger. The fact that we are around 400ppm of CO2 is not a bad thing. We can actually handle more and possibly be better off for it. I definitely recommend reviewing the work of people like Randal Carlson for more information on how Earth’s climate has changed over the last few million years.

    • Your science about CO2 grown plants although accurate on the size neglects to mention that nutrients provided by these plants reduces concomitantly. Please show all the facts.

      Hallelujah, someone besides me sees the truth…

    • I dunno! I thought the Grand Solar Minimum was upon us and cooler weather, shorter growing seasons, crop losses, and other horrors will lead to a food crisis. Throw in a large volcanco or two and humans are screwed. The magnetic field is weakening and cismic rays are increasing. Any Carrington type solar blast will destroy our electronic world and cause catastrophic chaos. The AGW proponents have made more than ten outlandish predictions that haven’t come true. It is still snowing up North and so many cold records are being broken now.
      The past climate cycles are prologue to future climate. Our scientists don’t have enough knowledge to accurately predict the weather or future climate regularly- just general ideas.

  51. Sea acidification will most probably do us in. Saw the beginning of this in the late 70s.
    The Russians now taking advantage of sea passage in the Arctic Ocean.
    If you want to pretend these changes aren’t occurring, and that CO2 and methane, humans and herd animals in their billions are not changing anything, no scientific evidence will change your mind. Sunspots, distance from the sun cannot affect us as much as our atmosphere and sea which we interface with.

    What to say to a climate denier:

    1. When you’re doctor tells you you to stop smoking because the CT scan showed “something”, what will you do? Say he’s stupid? Will you call him (or her) dumb, an idiot, a fearmonger? You wouldn’t disrespect a health expert, so why then would you disrespect a climate expert? Easy answer: Because some people are just too afraid to accept the diagnoses; or, too lazy to manage the treatment.

    2. When you fart in your car with the windows rolled up, that sure is climate change. A little (methane) goes a looong way.

    3. When you decide that you’ve had enough of all the craziness you might want to consider again, your car: Start it and close the garage door. THAT is climate change…

    Don’t give up on them. There are many “creative” ways to explain climate change, aka global warming, to a climate change denier.

  56. Sounds like alot of scare tactics to get us to fill bad about ourselves. A bunch of propaganda to get more numb people worried about a whole lot of nothing. Meanwhile the people who propagate this stuff do absolutely nothing themselves but tell us how bad we should fill about breathing the good air left. Lies lies and more lies.

  57. We are losing 200 species a day putting us into the sixth great extinction. Diversity is where resilience comes from.
    We are seeing fire, Flood, drought and extreem storms at a ever increasing rate. It is starting to cost more than we can afford and will get worse.
    Water is getting scarce. Our food production system is in trouble and in the drier parts of the world wars are triggered and migration is taking place.
    All this is caused by rising temperatures. It is time to cool things down. Covering our bare soils with green growing plants will not only cool but make water more available. It is time to actually get to work. Reduce tillage, keep plants young, reforest the edges of the deserts. Even letting you lawn grow high enough to stop the sun Frome getting to the soil will help.
    Greenhouse gasses have heated us but what we have emitted has built in another 100 years of warming so we must cool now while we transition off fossil fuels. Green plants will also put carbon back in the ground. It is a win win.

  58. Throughout recorded history one fact that has always determined the end of all the great societies and mightiest of empires …they are destroyed from within by the “cancer ” that they themselves. have created

  59. So many climate change deniers here. I’m a student in Biology degree, and I consider myself as an scientist. We’re taking data before make a conlusion, so scientist out there take MANY DATA before make a projection (thanks to people who work in IT and develop AI, our work as a scientist a lot easier). However, to take that many data still need months even years of work. Their work is not piece of SH*T.

    For people who work in politic or economy please consider this climate change issue before make a decision.

    Climate change deniers out there please READ article in Nat Geo or something similar here. Because the phenomena like permafrost thawing, ice melting in Alaska, coral bleaching and average temperature rising is FACT not FICTION. In recent 5 years some phenomena like California’s drought of water, heatwave across Asia, more hurricane happened. Even I feel a lot hotter here in Indonesia compared to when I was a kid. You guys deniers consider ALL of this as a cycle or normal?

    This issue is because us human, different from that happened in Ice Age.

  60. Any species that spent so much time and effort to glamorize men putting their manhood where other men defecate and condones people to think they’re a different sex deserves to go extinct. We could have much better used the time, expense and effort to find ourselves a new home outside the solar system.

    • The great majority of scientists agree with these figures. This isn’t some alarmist propaganda. The situation is dire. We should all be very scared. We are looking at the loss of coral reefs in the next decade… This is already known within marine biology. That would mean a loss of a quarter of sea life with it. This alone is staggeringly horrible for the planet, much less human civilization.

      The loss of the ice sheets means a loss of the albeito affect (reflecting of sunlight from the Earth’s surface) which means it’ll get even warmer, leading to even more melting.

      All it takes is little bit of critical thinking and looking for yourself to know that something is wrong. This is not a political issue.

      Weird association! Maybe you should talk to someone about your feelings. You know, a professional.

  61. I adore the vitriolic comment of the angry conservatives and deniers. So I will put this forth in a way you, dear reader, will understand. Pollution is waste, waste is lost money, lost money is antithetical to economic growth. Efficiency is a good thing and is good for everybody. We NEED to upgrade our electrical system in the U.S., imagine if a solar flare hits our planet in the wrong way, we’d be fucked. Electric cars are more robust and easier to maintain and a byproduct of their increasing production is better battery tech. We NEED better electricity production to stay competitive, imagine if the rest of the world is running off of high energy density processes (fission and fusion comes to mind.) How would we compete? People talk about bringing jobs back here but we can’t compete with the cheap labor available in poor countries unless we leverage technology to increase efficiency and decrease waste. If we dig our heads into the sand and ignore the coming tide of change, we’re fucked. I’ve seen comments about our global economy being a bad thing but I have a question: What’s the alternative? How can we have a technological civilization without talking to our neighbors? Without trade? Here’s another kicker, when the quality of life and options go up for people in poor places goes up, everybody benefits. The reason for this is a larger pool of potential innovators. More minds at work is always better. Trade is always preferable to war. Logic is always preferable to superstition.

    • I saw this polar bear melt right in front of my eyes. It’s all melting, the dear, bears, bunnies, birds, fish, bugs. O the humanity!

  62. Is this article from the same university that was caught scrubbing its climate data a few years back?

  63. This is ridiculous. Scientist say the Laurentide ice sheet that covered most of what is now Canada, and the northern US states, melted off 10 to 20 thousand years ago and formed the Great Lakes. It was nearly 2.5 miles thick, yet this is left out of the discussion when talking about climate change today. The melt off was faster then than todays estimated levels, but why? Is it because it no longer fit today’s narrative!? Hard to say, but I’m guessing if those people that are up in arms about the climate change today, were alive back then, they would be blaming campfires and such, which is ridiculous. Are there things we should possibly being doing today, sure, but stop with the “sky is falling” B.S..

  66. Good one!!!

  67. IF climate change is real the key word being IF! if it is and its going to wipe out civilization then we shouldn’t stop it. It’s what we deserve and actually we deserve worse for the sick and twisted shit we have done to not only the earth but to each other! Stop saying it’s those goddamn conservative nazis fault or them little snowflake socialist pussys fault! It’s ALL of our faults as HUMANS!! Not just Americas or the right or left not just Trumps or the Clinton’s or bush or Obama’s nobody’s hands are clean and I MEAN NOBODY’S! This is why we are in the state we are in because NO FUCKING BODY wants to be accept being wrong and we definitely don’t want to take responsibility for our actions! Say what you want to but until we actually change this and more we won’t be able to do anything else.

  68. Climate tipping points are a few shaort years away, and always will be! The people have witnessed such scare on a regular basis. The realityis that nkne of their alarmist scares have eventuated. Artic is not ice free, sea level has not risen a faster than normal long term trends, the polar bears are doind just fine, temperwtures have not increased, hurricanes are less frequent, drought is less common, snowing and skiijng have not ceased in the USA, water is not in short supply, war are not being fought over water supplies…. and on and on. The eco-socialist-homo left, do not deserve to be believed.

  69. YouTube George Carlin on climate change, hilarious but yet so true.

  70. It seems odd to me that we do not diminish reflected heat in cities and all buildings by not requiring all tops of buildings to be reflective so that they do not radiate heat into the environment,each black roof heats up and reflects heat to the air around it. making them reflective would be a cheap fix,you could even use a layer of white gravel to help buildings from heating up

  71. Another thing isin farming ,if we only plowed strips that could be used for planting and alllowed or fostered grass between them we would cut down on wind erosion and keep water in the ground for longer periods of time it only makes sense to use what you need and preserve the rest.We would end up using less water for irrigation that ultimately evaporates,fully 2/3 of the water you use for irrigation ends up evaporating anyway.

  72. general overall temperature would decline if grass replaced concrete in cities. Less reflected heat means cooler temperatures.yah you’d have to mow it but it could be recycled into fertilizer . Use your head concrete is laid down for convenience.it might look cleaner but causes massive amounts of reflected heat,spend a summer in a city and see. Smaller buildings that are properly designed hold less background heat ,heat is absorbed by walls,less walls less absorbed heat.The reverse holds true when heating your house in the winter, putting a dark tarp over limited use rooms will cut your overall heating bill in half. Think about it your money goes out a little at a time try saving some you will benefit in the long run,takes little effort,first year you break even, buying a tarp big enough, second and following years you save 1/3 to 1/2 of your gas bill

  73. Am I the only one who read the whole article waiting to find out why human civilization will be destroyed? The only thing I saw was 10 m sea level rise. This is what’s threatening the existence of human civilization? 30 feet of shore line? Articles like this are what’s going to kill us. We don’t need to figure out how to slow down global warming.

    Climate alarmists, answer this one question: Former President Obama recently spent $15 million on a BEACHFRONT estate on Martha’s Vineyard, a low lying island that will surely disappear in a couple of decades, if we are to believe the climate hysterics. Obama has repeatedly declared his belief in climate change, and in taking drastic steps to reverse its effects. Most progressives see Obama as a smart guy, and they value his leadership on this issue. WHY THEN, IF OBAMA REALLY BELIEVED IN AN IMMINENT CLIMATE DISASTER, WOULD HE SPEND ALL THAT MONEY ON A PROPERTY THAT WILL BE INUNDATED IN OUR LIFETIMES?

    For that matter, why aren’t many of the Hollywood elites who declare their fear of the impending doom abandoning their Malibu beach houses?

  85. AGW isn’t debatable. The global temperatures are increasing, and denying that fact is won’t change the reality. Heat stress will severely inhibit growth cycles in plants which we depend on for food. Humanity will need to migrate to cooler regions to survive, but this isn’t sustainable with industrial civilization.

    Human civilization will be forced into a decline…probably going to happen rapidly, in decades. Exponential effects aren’t easily predictable. OTOH what will be predictable after grid collapse, loss of agriculture and the disintegration of industrial infrastructures, it’s the +450 nuclear reactors which will eventually fail.

    Even with humans in control, remember that Fukushima had multiple meltdowns which went into China syndrome. No one exactly knows where all the corium or radioactive fuel rods are, other than being somewhere far below the ground and leaching into the Pacific Ocean. This is your long-term future: cesium 137, 134, strontium 90, tritium, plutonium, americium, hundreds of isotopes, constantly entering the seas and oceans, accumulating in the food chain — algae, crustaceans, little fish, big fish, ect. BTW it’s impossible to “decommission” Fukushima units 1, 2 and 3 due extreme radiation.

    Thinking about survival long term on land in a hothouse, radioactive planet? Jesus will not be coming back to remove the CO2 from our atmosphere. Sure, the meek will inherit the Earth, but it won’t be apex predators like humans, but the unicellular thermophiles: rad-hardened algae, bacteria and fungi. And certain insects like cockroaches, ants and wasps. Marine species might fare a little better, the lower on food chain, the better survival rates.

    Evolution will re-boot toward higher life forms. Humans may reappear eventually. In a million years unless re-populated from outer space. Our current industrial society, aka infinite growth on a finite planet, this reality is ending soon. Now can you say “sayonora”?

    Consider how many few years there have been in the geological time scale when we are already threatening ourselves with our ignorance of the consequences of our actions.
    Are you willing to bet all future generations on the belief that climate change is just a hoax? We do not have the right to indulge in such selfishness.

  90. Most of this is just lies.When glaciers don’t melt, THAT is a problem. Ice is not a permanent geological feature.pining for near ice age conditions and referring to them as normal is a psychiatric condition.

  91. I am not well informed on global warming , but it does look like the arctic is melting …anyway I wold like to express my thoughts about windmills , everyone thinks they are so enviramentally friendly but has anyone ever considered that these windmills are placed directly in the path of naturel wind currents , in order to drive a generator you are now diminishing the strength of those natural wind currents , it would seem to me that as there is millions of these windmills all over the planet ,i believe they could play a large part in the wicked weather swings and storms that seem to be increasing as of late …just a thought…

  92. Freshwater security is a major problem. When glaciers melt and disappear, they can no longer feed major rivers that support population centers. this causes the collapse of those population centers and massive migration and further burden on surrounding areas. This of course leads to instability radicalization and war. If you don’t see that as a problem, you can’t be counted on to solve the problem that you don’t think exists.

  93. As you can see by some responses, the human element doesn’t have the ability to think ahead let alone logically.
    Therefore sadly to say the human animal shall keep destroying this heaven we live in.
    Although the Jesus guy will be saved.
    He got the memo lmao.
    And will reside in the heaven provided by human story telling.
    Good luck brother!

    As a Christian and believer in God and Christ the book of Revelation tells me how it ends. nothing about man made anything is going to end this world.

  95. Composition of the air does not affect average temperature. Gas Law PV=nRT. Pressure correlates to temperature. Mars is 96% CO2 and average -80°F. But pressure is very low. Venus has high pressure & high temperature.

    The official NOAA temperature record of observed highs and lows (400 MB) show the highs are cooling and lows are warming (Greenhouse Effect). But the average (global warming) has warmed & cooled & warmed & cooled in the same 100-year span. NOAA is now blocking access because the publicly owned data contradict what “scientists” say.

    If you look at old newspapers, you see our climate is milder & less extreme today. If runaway warming from CO2 was true, we would already be +800°F like our sister planet Venus.

    No alarmist will debate because the data & science destroy the apocalyptic superstition. Yes I have a degree in meteorology 1993 when universities taught science.

    Climate change will lead to nuclear war when humans find themselves cornered and scrapping over resources, especially food. It will start slowly with people on the move, then quicken to outright border panic and weather emigration, and then a slow wasting of financial and political institutions. There will be much praying among the religious, and the pope will plead for more tolerance. A person of great conviction and dim wit will become leader, and as an Irish poet once said, the center will not hold.

  97. Until the “average” of UN IPCC climate models actually match the hisotircal record without massive “calibrations” (that is, adjustments to data to bias results) ALL projections are not worth the screens they are displayed on. Note to UN IPCC – your climate models are fundamentally flawed – get some real mathematicians to help you out instead of relying on y = a + b(x) to prmote your sick attempts at mind control.

  98. This climate change stuff is a total scam. It sounds like “We are all gonna die unless we all come together under a ONE WORLD fascist government NOW!”
    That is not going to happen! EVER!
    Moreover, when science is “settled” it stops being actual science. Not one prediction of this wacko group of alarmists has EVER came true. But this is the driving impetus for destroying everything beautiful and free that is a Human Being.

  99. So many Russian trolls here. And some collaborating patriots and tin-pot science posers, who all should know better. Must have failed high school science. Everyone knows American (compulsory) education is a big failure. The science is in—masses of research with complete convergence!! Reams of science in distinguished journals across the world. Anyone with a brain can tell you global warming is human-caused, not natural cycle. A lot of bogus points about what “science” is or isn’t or pronouncements about the urge to be free will not change the fact that climate is being changed by the massive burning of carbon. As the blues writer once sang—“There must be some way out of here.”

  100. WOW, this is the most comments I’ve seen on this site! However many of them are from those Fox News/Republican brainwashed folks who believe everything that Fox News and the Republicans tell them to believe instead of looking at the facts and using their common sense. So let me lay out to you a way to end global warming easily! First I want all of you to google search a site called flightradar24.com and on that site is a display of all the commercial flights of jet engine airplanes that are flying at that moment worldwide. Throughout the day there are around 90,000 flights. This site does not include military jet airplanes or military jet propelled weapons or rockets of any kind. I assume that that amount is very high and much more damaging to our environment. Here’s why, commercial jet planes heated exhaust ranges from 800 to 1200 degrees and military jet planes heated exhaust ranges from 1200 to 2500 degrees. So what is happening daily is that around the globe daily we are putting a lot of hot air and jet engine pollutants into our upper atmosphere from these jet engine airplanes. Also these jet engine airplanes are gigantic vacuum machines that are sucking up rain and cloud producing water molecules in our upper atmosphere. That is why the Earth has less clouds now around the Earth than it did before the 1960’s when jet engine airplanes started flying in mass around the planet. Check out the weather maps and you will see that the Earth had much more clouds before 1960. Check out the weather maps from the week after 9/11 Twin Towers attack when worldwide airplane flights around the world were grounded. You will see a massive increase of clouds worldwide! Before the 1960’s we used mainly propeller airplanes which don’t suck up and heat air as jet engine airplanes do. We have to go back to only using propeller airplanes in order to end global warming immediately! It’s as simple as that! It’s an easy way to stop heating up our atmosphere. The cold air coming into the Earth’s atmosphere from outer space is the only reason the Earth hasn’t heated up yet from the Sun in all the years of the Earth’s existence. Clouds are the only thing that Earth has that can stop the Sun’s rays from heating the Earth and the only thing that the Earth has that can produce rain. Vegetation and trees are the only thing on Earth that produces moisture/water molecules in our atmosphere. Jet engine airplanes, weapons and rockets are the only thing we humans put up into our upper atmosphere that is so hot that it over powers the cold air coming from outer space into our Earth’s atmosphere. Our cities are too far apart to have create the kind heat needed to create global warming that the Earth is now encountering. Jet engine airplanes are the main cause of global warming so let’s all stop flying them!
