    if the hoaxers predictions come true, they will take credit.

    if they do not come true, they will take credit for preventing the climate change.

    thats how con artists operate.

    Like "scientists" have any credibility left whatsoever. "Scientists" tend to agree 100% with whoever is funding them.

    Why is 1.5°C critical?

    We're already fucked.

    this is just as retarded as saying vape denial is funded and driven by big tobaccos.



    big corporations arent retarded. all the big oils already have their tentacles in big greens and only idiots are too retarded to realize this.

    Over one year after The Great Insect Dying series and Insect Apocalpyse media coverage, insects still are in peril:

    https://news.mongabay.com/2020/11/one-year-on-insects-still-in-peril-as-world-struggles-with-global-pandemic/amp/

    Animal populations declined by 70% in just a few decades:

    https://www.cbsnews.com/news/endangered-species-animal-population-decline-world-wildlife-fund-new-report/

    Vegetation Biomass 70% lower than it would be (and therefor was) without humans:



    Fish population declined up to 50% since 1990:

    Kevin Anderson went through the IPCC's report that centered around a prediction of 1.5C by 2050, replete with all sorts of fantastical assumptions, such as every single country in the world developing effective NET's in the early 90's, with each subsequent year exponentially increasing the NET's ability to remove carbon from the atmosphere.

    That's simply a farcical assumption made by the IPCC. Here's the talk where he walks through every single caveat and assumption, contrasting them to reality:



    Even the world's most powerful corporations, the oil barons such as ExxonMobil researched into climate change, and what the effects would be, of not mounting a global effort of biblical proportions to avert it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ExxonMobil_climate_change_controversy

    Here's a PDF that consolidates the current trajectory whilst staying within reality. Page 8 has the sobering statistics: https://docs.wixstatic.com/ugd/148cb0_a1406e0143ac4c469196d3003bc1e687.pdf

    There is also a satirical video, where a group researched into the effects of climate change and the reality we face, said in a no-holds-barred manner to a TV presenter:



    The claims were fact-checked, and they're completely factual: https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2014/11/climate-desk-fact-checks-aaron-sorkins-climate-science-newsroom/

    We're facing societal collapse by 2030 due to a 1.5C rise. We're currently at around 1.2C rise in global temperatures, which is affected by the temperatures of the oceans (focus on just land temperatures and it's much higher): https://www.carbonbrief.org/state-of-the-climate-how-the-world-warmed-in-2019

    And everything is dying. Insects, for instance, have cratered, with the global biomass of insects having declined by 80%: https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/feb/10/plummeting-insect-numbers-threaten-collapse-of-nature

    Insect populations are declining by 1-2% a year, which is directly correlated to reductions in biomass: https://www.pnas.org/content/118/2/e2023989118

    Abundant evidence demonstrates that the principal stressors—land-use change (especially deforestation), climate change, agriculture, introduced species, nitrification, and pollution—underlying insect declines are those also affecting other organisms. Locally and regionally, insects are challenged by additional stressors, such as insecticides, herbicides, urbanization, and light pollution. In areas of high human activity, where insect declines are most conspicuous, multiple stressors occur simultaneously

    There is no longer any meaningful amount of permanent sea ice in the Arctic: https://thebarentsobserver.com/en/2020/08/mosaic-climate-expedition-shares-scary-photos-north-pole

    The photos clearly underline how several recent climate studies, predicting ice-free Arctic summers by 2035, is not a theoretical scenario but rather an unavoidable fact

    This was predicted several decades ago, by looking at the current trajectory of year-round ice loss: https://www.arcticdeathspiral.org/#

    All the green technologies that we've developed are to supplement existing oil and coal energy sources, both of which are also increasing: https://ourworldindata.org/co2-and-other-greenhouse-gas-emissions

    Due to the increased temperatures of the oceans, fish are now suffocating to death as there are now vast, growing swathes of ocean where there's not enough oxygen for them to survive: https://www.iucn.org/theme/marine-and-polar/our-work/climate-change-and-oceans/ocean-deoxygenation

    The current extinction event we're experiencing is the worst in all of Earth's history, by at least 10x: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holocene_extinction

    The current rate of extinction is 10 to 100 times higher than in any of the previous mass extinctions in the history of Earth.

    As an example for how much faster the current extinction event is, the previous record holder took 20,000 years to decimate 90% of all of the Earth's species: https://news.mit.edu/2011/mass-extinction-1118

    The end-Permian extinction occurred 252.2 million years ago, decimating 90 percent of marine and terrestrial species, from snails and small crustaceans to early forms of liserds and amphibians. “The Great Dying,” as it’s now known, was the most severe mass extinction in Earth’s history, and is probably the closest life has come to being completely extinguished. Possible causes include immense volcanic eruptions, rapid depletion of oxygen in the oceans, and — an unlikely option — an asteroid collision.

    While the causes of this global catastrophe are unknown, an MIT-led team of researchers has now established that the end-Permian extinction was extremely rapid, triggering massive die-outs both in the oceans and on land in less than 20,000 years — the blink of an eye in geologic time. The researchers also found that this time period coincides with a massive buildup of atmospheric carbon dioxide, which likely triggered the simultaneous collapse of species in the oceans and on land.

    With further calculations, the group found that the average rate at which carbon dioxide entered the atmosphere during the end-Permian extinction was slightly below today’s rate of carbon dioxide release into the atmosphere due to fossil fuel emissions. Over tens of thousands of years, increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide during the Permian period likely triggered severe global warming, accelerating species extinctions.

    Contrast that to the decline of wildlife populations in just the past 40 years: https://www.worldwildlife.org/pages/living-planet-report-2018

    On average, we’ve seen an astonishing 60% decline in the size of populations of mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, and amphibians in just over 40 years, according to WWF’s Living Planet Report 2018. The top threats to species identified in the report link directly to human activities, including habitat loss and degradation and the excessive use of wildlife such as overfishing and overhunting.

    The latest statistics, which go from 1970-2016, shows that four years ago it had risen to a 68% reduction in wildlife population: https://ec.europa.eu/jrc/en/science-update/wwf-living-planet-report-2020-reveals-68-drop-wildlife-populations

    The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Living Planet Report 2020, published today, sounds the alarm for global biodiversity, showing an average 68% decline in animal population sizes tracked over 46 years (1970-2016).

    The polar vortex has collapsed: https://www.severe-weather.eu/global-weather/polar-vortex-collapse-winter-weather-europe-united-states-2021-fa/

    A Polar Vortex collapse sequence has begun in late December 2020, with a major Sudden Stratospheric Warming event on January 5th, 2021. We will look at the sequence of these events, and how they can change the weather in Europe and the United States in the coming weeks.

    Due to the increased water temperatures, it was discovered that arctic rivers are accelerating sea ice loss in a positive (i.e, BAD) feedback loop: https://scitechdaily.com/increased-heat-from-arctic-rivers-is-melting-sea-ice-in-the-arctic-ocean-and-warming-the-atmosphere/

    As the arctic's temperature increases, the melting ice releases trapped methane in a positive feedback loop, with the arctic ice containing 1/4 of all of the Earth's methane. Higher temperatures = Ice melts faster = Faster release of methane = Higher temperatures = Ice melts faster: https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2020/08/antarctica-methane-leak-microorganisms/

    For the first time in human history, the arctic can be navigated through by ships without ice breakers: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/russian-tanker-cuts-a-previously-impossible-path-through-the-warming-arctic/

    The little year-round Arctic sea ice that is left, is now host to algae: https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2021/01/210129110942.htm

    wow, this happened 252 million years ago? without humans? without industrialization? without burning fossil fuels?

    GET OUT, you mean to tell me that devastating climate change has been happening without our permission?

    just a little advice, stop copy pasting and present one point at a time, nobody has time to correct every single ill informed contradiction that you posted without bothering to read it beforehand.

    I don't believe anything I haven't experienced myself and don't care about any studies anymore because it's all pozzed to shit but I know that the weather has been complete shit here. Every other day we have a hailstorm or flood and it fucks my vibes.

    I'm currently working on a protection spell to protect that little place I call home. That's really all I can do but I feel like we should more on controlling the weather in general.

    Humans haven't caused snakes to be poisonous but we sure did make antidotes and owned those little shits. We should do the same with the climate.

    Nothing is impossible. We won't advance to a type 3 civilization over night and if we can't master the weather we are already fucked.

    I also fear that this adaptation entails more brown hordes in my country and I don't want that as I'm a white man and greatly value the cold dark nights of winters past.
