… when I wrote this post. Not only have we locked in 2 degrees of warming, but as the permafrost melts in Alaska, Canada, and Russia, the methane pours out and creates a feedback loop. Methane has a Greenhouse Warming Potential of 25, which means it is 25 times more potent than Carbon Dioxide. Watch for yourself.
Shit! If the negotiators at Cancun have not seen this, then they need to read my blog or many like it. This is very scary stuff, and reinforcement that positive feedback loops are happening now, and Gaia is not waiting for humans to make up their minds if they are going to cut carbon emissions by 5% or 40% by 2020. We are experiencing catastrophic climate change right fucking now!
Sorry for the language, but this is scary stuff.
I am with you Gavin. Your last two posts got me so incensed with politicians that I ranted and raved in my last post and I never do that.
People do not tend to do something about things until it directly affects them. I think it is about time that our politicians got a tidal wave of opinions from the real people in the world.
Thank you Gavin, I have been trying to wake people up around me without much success. I had just about lost faith and given up on everone. But you and others like you keep me going! I will make sure I continue to rant and rave and get people to notice. And yes it is very scary.
Hi Gavin, it is very scary indeed. Feels like being in a Dr Who episode where everyone is brainwashed except a few. But we must continue to rally and rant to the last… Sonya
Wow. People tend to ignore things until they are happening in their own backyard, but the implications will be far reaching for everyone on Earth… by the time people & politicians wake up, it will be too late.
This just grounds the need to be prepared for me…
And it gets worse.“Hidden behind the save-the-world rhetoric of the global climate change negotiations lies the mucky realpolitik: money and threats buy political support; spying and cyberwarfare are used to seek out leverage.”
