The small minded don’t get it about climate change. Screw it; they don’t get it about anything. That’s why they’re small minded and have to use all the illegal tricks associated with power to stay where they are – they can’t see outside of the badly formed preconceptions they harbor. I’ll address in a few days that group of small minded individuals who don’t get why Bernie isn’t falling in line like a good autonotom. That’s because Bernie isn’t one and he sees the bigger picture – that we don’t have decades to muck about and do nothing about climate change.
I’m not a doomsayer or a conspiratorist. You can think logically and clearly and recognize the trouble we are in when it comes to the environment and climate change.
It’s becoming more and more ominous, just like we’re in a science fiction movie. And once it’s too late it really is too late. And the small minded are always too late.
“In a column on Tuesday, environmental blogger Robert Scribbler noted that the Northern Hemisphere Jet Stream had merged with the Southern Hemisphere Jet Stream.
“It’s the very picture of weather weirding due to climate change. Something that would absolutely not happen in a normal world,” he wrote. “Something, that if it continues, basically threatens seasonal integrity.”
“Like many extreme events resulting from human-forced climate change — this co-mingling of upper level airs from one Hemisphere with another is pretty fracking strange,” Scribbler explained. “Historically, the Tropics — which produce the tallest and thickest air mass in the world — have served as a mostly impenetrable barrier to upper level winds moving from one Hemisphere to another. But as the Poles have warmed due to human-forced climate change, the Hemispherical Jet Streams have moved out of the Middle Latitudes more and more.” http://www.rawstory.com/2016/06/unprecedented-scientists-declare-global-climate-emergency-after-jet-stream-crosses-equator/
“Barring some incredible new carbon capture technology, the window for limiting global warming to less than 1.5 degrees Celsius appears to have closed. That’s the stark conclusion of a report out in Nature today, which finds that the carbon reductions pledges penned into the Paris Agreement are ridiculously inadequate for keeping our climate within a safe and stable boundary.
The Paris Agreement—a historic piece of climate change policy adopted by leaders of 195 countries last December—pledged to limit human-caused global warming to less than two degrees Celsius, with a “stretch goal” of keeping our planet’s thermostat from rising more than 1.5 degrees. We’re supposed to do that by aggressively cutting back on fossil fuels and switching entirely to renewable energy sources by the end of the century.
In addition to concluding that “the window for limiting warming to below 1.5 degrees C with high probability and without temporarily exceeding that level already seems to have closed,” the study found that the pledges outlined in the Paris Agreement will likely see global temperatures rise 2.6 to 3.1 degrees Celsius by 2100. A 3 degree uptick in global temperatures could cause sea level to rise up to 20 feet over the next few centuries, displacing hundreds of millions.” http://gizmodo.com/the-window-for-avoiding-a-dangerous-climate-change-has-1782836113
