Since the 1880s, the world’s temperature has risen by about 1C because of greenhouse gases resulting from human activity

The world has three years to start making significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions or face the prospect of dangerous global warming, experts have warned in an article in the prestigious journal Nature.

Calling for world leaders to be guided by the scientific evidence rather than “hide their heads in the sand”, they said “entire ecosystems” were already beginning to collapse, summer sea ice was disappearing in the Arctic and coral reefs were dying from the heat.

The world could emit enough carbon to bust the Paris Agreement target of between 1.5 to 2 degrees Celsius in anything from four to 26 years if current levels continue, the article said.

Global emissions had been rising rapidly but have plateaued in recent years. The experts, led by Christiana Figueres, who as Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change played a key role in the Paris Agreement, said they must start to fall rapidly from 2020 at the latest.

Thank goodness...  I have 3 more years.  (On borrowed time.)

According to AlGore...   I caught on fire and died from climate induced spontaneous combustion a couple years ago.

According to David Wallace-Wells (who, as a “writer living in New York,” which makes him a total authority on everything), climate change is going to kill us all by the end of the century. So, if you were *planning* on living until the end of the century, you’re going to be SOL.

 

Quote

Absent a significant adjustment to how billions of humans conduct their lives, parts of the Earth will likely become close to uninhabitable, and other parts horrifically inhospitable, as soon as the end of this century.

 

And then he goes into a list of horrors that will most definitely happen unless we give up our sinful ways. Plagues! Famines! Wars!
