    Here's the UN Climate Report, for release 10/8/18. This thread can be revived at any time you feel the heat coming on. Just various news reports on this most dire assessment yet, at least as far as the consensus science is concerned. From what I can tell. Not a climate scientist, but I would put my money on some degree of accuracy in the predictions contained in the report. I know others here will weigh in with the good news that none of this is actually happening, or that it's likely a Chinese hoax, or that we are actually going into an ice age(@babe?), so have at it now and then. This thread may be good for several decades or more. It will just be there when you need it. Here's to life and survival.

    Some briefs:

    Yeah, we are ****ed. At least, some of us are.

    Hard to see the US, much less the world, getting the political will to work together to enact the drastic changes needed to avert disaster.

    Aside from my general dislike for children, the devastating effects of climate change are my number one reason for not wanting kids. We are leaving the next generation with a nightmare scenario.

    Amazing how different the world was in 1918, just 100 years ago. The current support of climate change denying politicians tells us all we need to know about our chances for a reversal. No one cares about the future, they only care about their future.

    Thanks for this update, Red. Knowing the state of current world politics and how we behave as a species, it is unlikely that anything meaningful will be done until it is too late, and it may already be too late. The human race will be looking for a new world in the 22nd century.

    No, that’s about 100 years from now. Keep proudly spouting out ignorance though.

    Well, Red. Not well read.

    There is no rational connection between the plausible anthropogenic global warming believed to follow the known properties of carbon dioxide and other polyatomic gases we humans release into the atmosphere, and any political agenda.

    A rational connection with known science would be the basis for changes in policies perhaps, maybe building some infrastructure, maybe altering land use plans or zoning specifications. Rhode Island, perhaps, could really look to the future as a small cluster of islands off the East Coast peninsular New England. Might be enough dry land there, still, to be one state instead of say about six.

    But it's no excuse for world government, carbon taxes, or wealth redistribution.

    Having reviewed the data a bit, I see the claim is that carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has risen, and is expected to rise. And there is this ice shelf still hanging on to Antartica that looks like it will slide off and melt away, that's huge enough to make a splash and raise the level of bathtub Earth's "oceans".

    However, there is factual reason to believe there is still a global climate cycle that causes periodic and prolonged Ice Ages, whose proven scale is about ten times the global warming we're all excited about.

    I'm betting on the Ice Age. I'm buying cheap desert land near the benches/beaches of former Great Basin lakes, and telling Brighamites in Utah that the coming lakes will precede the coming of Christ and the that maybe the Garden of Eden or Zion should be relocated to the Rio Grande valley.

    And, Red, I'd sell any Rhode Island real estate if I could. Even if the shoreline adds lots of bonus acres to shoreline plots, it'll all be ice-covered. Even you, with your dreamy visions of the New England you know and love, will turn to new visions of paradise in the Bahamas.

    And all those Anasazi ruins will go up in the dust of Rockefeller coal mining operations. That's why your gov made all those "preserves", ya know. Couldn't let the Dutch or anyone else ever make claims on all that coal.... enough coal to fuel the smudgepot Earth with not only heat for homes and businesses, and the fuel for cars and buses, but to be just burned for the CO2 value to warm up our little planet a degree or two.

    For the record, I'm starting a sort of lottery. I think a bank account of ten bucks will cover my risk. And yes it will be an account in Nevada or some other state where it's legal.

    Here are the rules. All those who believe the Jazz will win the NBA Championship before Donald Trump is impeached or displaced by an election will be included in a pool of JazzFans and will divide the purse if we win it all during Trump's Presidency. All those who believe Trump will be impeached first will share the purse if that becomes the fact. Ten bucks gets you into the pool.

    A second pool will divide on the issue of climate change. All those who believe in the coming Ice Age will collect the purse when the ice shelves extend or build enough to drop the average Ocean level ten feet, as measured by changing shorelines and exposed coral reefs and islands now under water. All those who believe in catastrophic global warming will share the purse if Ocean levels rise by ten feet, inundating coastal marshes and submerging the low-lying atolls and reefs which presently show themselves once in a while during low tides.

    I expect the first purse to be disbursed within three years, with little interest accumulated. I believe the second purse, with just my ten bucks, will be worth a billion bucks in 2300 AD. And still growing. As time goes on, it will become appropriate to notify me and/or the designated fund trustees of changes in wills and beneficiaries.....

    Anyone interested may PM me, and I will reveal a mailing address that will not result in my incarceration for doing this......

    So you are the one on the stick, aspiring to be the one tied up in the mask.

    Thoughts:

    Guess what trees breathe? Put dry ice next to a plant itll grow faster.

    Wheres all the fruit and nut orchards the governments been planting the last thousand years? Only makes sense they'd be doing this since they care so dearly for the people.

    Thousands of climate scientists around the world just slapped their foreheads, how could they forget about the existence of plants!

    Guess we've got this thing figured out guys.
