Hotter, stormier and extreme – The future of weather

Over the last decade, scientists learned a great deal about the climate, much of it concerning the connection between global warming and extreme events — heat waves, hurricanes, floods, droughts and wildfires.

There has been, for many years, an understanding that a warmer world would be a more temperamental one, and measurements upon measurements show the average temperature is rising in step with those predictions.

Bloomberg articles are mostly boring, don't see anything controversial in this one to start a flame-war on MyBB...

As predicted by science for more than 2 decades. It's here now.

There is no point in trying to "move away" from issues that are really beyond your control. A 50 - 100 year lifetime of an individual cannot expect to compete with a phenomenon that was many hundreds of years in the making. Stay where you are and learn to live with it.

They're right, but their reasons are wrong -right now.
There's nothing anyone can do to stop it.

Ja "we" all seem to have this belief that we are not part of nature - somehow above and detached and in control. Nature corrects itself all the time and for a species let alone an individual within a species to think it can influence things in the short term is just crazy.

Its all a hoax. Believing in man-made climate change is like believing in the tooth fairy.

With every passing year the list of failed predictions by the Climate Alarmists mounts. The more they tell us how bad its going to be the sillier they sound.

Failed prediction after failed prediction after failed prediction after failed prediction doesn't stop them, of course. Like religious fundamentalist fanatics, their prediction of imminent disaster and doom becomes more strident and insistent, and their denouncement of "denialists" becomes shriller and shriller.

To celebrate a decade of failed predictions, the Heartland Institute (a denialist bunch of heretics) lists predictions of doom. All they do is remind us of the prediction of disaster and leave the refutation to those who bother to look outside their window.

Climate Prediction Swings and Misses - failed predictions 2010-2019.



News, news, news!

Here's a video:


(And before the usual suspects jump in and accuse me of denying Climate Change and being anti-science, let me remind them for the umpteenth time that of course I accept Climate Change. Change is what climates do over time, including Earth's. I'm just not convinced the current change is caused by humans.)

The bad news with the climate is the IPCC reports were always overly conservative due to needing consensus, it's a lot worse than we expected and progressing a lot faster. Many say we have nearly reached 1.5c already and worldwide carbon was up 2-3% this year, the highest ever. Last 17/19 years were the hottest ever. Even if we were to stop all fossil fuels right now globally today, it would still be too late. We have passed the tipping point, kicking in vicious feedback loops that will exponentially get worse. We don't have the resources let alone the time to adapt to renewable energy worldwide anyway. There are various forms of denial in the world at such an issue. But to debate with global warming deniers is like debating with flat earthers. A lot of talk in the climate community debate has moved from "How do we fix this or slow it down?" to "How do we prepare for imminent collapse?". The effects of this on our fragile interconnected global economy will come sooner than a world environment that is unlivable. Start beginning to prepare for a life that looks a lot more simple and be kind to your fellow man as our old systems degenerate, we are all in this together. Look to the concept of Deep Adaptation if interested in that line of thinking.

It's a lot better than any IPCC prediction.
