Nearly everything we understand about global warming was understood in 1979

Unbelievable that we already knew about climate change 4o years ago and we could have stopped it. How can we explain this to future generations? It is actually too stupid to be able to put into words let alone how it will appear in the history books. It remains a mystery to me how goverments get away with this and it scares me that it continues to this day.

The climate scientist James Hansen has called a 2-degree warming “a prescription for long-term disaster”. Long-term disaster is now the best-case scenario. A 3-degree warming, on the other hand, is a prescription for short-term disaster: forests sprouting in the Arctic, the abandonment of most coastal cities, mass starvation.

Robert Watson, a former chairman of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, has argued that a 3-degree warming is the realistic minimum. Four degrees: Europe in permanent drought; vast areas of China, India, and Bangladesh claimed by desert; Polynesia swallowed by the sea; the Colorado River thinned to a trickle. The prospect of a 5-degree warming prompts some of the world’s pre-eminent climate scientists, not an especially excitable type, to warn of the fall of human civilisation.

The proximate cause will be not the warming itself — we won’t burst in flame and crumble all to ashes — but its secondary effects. The Red Cross estimates that already more refugees flee environmental crises than violent conflict. Starvation, drought, the inundation of the coasts, and the smothering expansion of deserts will force hundreds of millions of people to run for their lives. The mass migrations will stagger delicate regional truces, hastening battles over natural resources, acts of terrorism, and declarations of war.[…]
