This global warming/ climate change problem really is getting dire. We've now been reliable advised that the planet only has 10 years to fix the emissions issues before its too late and environment and economic disaster will become a certainty.

For example we have this information from U.N. Environment Program (UNEP)....

* " entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed"

* "Coastal flooding and crop failures would create an exodus of eco- refugees, threatening political chaos"

* " governments have a 10-year window of opportunity to solve the greenhouse effect before it goes beyond human control"

* "ocean levels will rise by up to three feet, enough to cover the Maldives and other flat island nations"

* A fifth of Egyptís arable land in the Nile Delta would be flooded, cutting off its food supply"

* "Shifting climate patterns would bring back 1930s Dust Bowl conditions to Canadian and U.S. wheatlands"

* The most conservative scientific estimate that the Earthís temperature will rise 1 to 7 degrees in the next 30 years"

* "thereís nothing we can do now to stop a ... change of about 3 degrees."

Oh, did I forget to mention that all of those prediction were made 30 years ago? http://www.apnews.com/bd45c372caf118ec99964ea547880cd0

None of it actually happened. What did happen is that the dire warnings were just updated and everyone was supposed to forget the old failed warnings. Polar bears to be wiped out? Nup. Arctic to be ice free in 7 years? Nup. Temperature rise of 1-7 degrees? Nup.

Its like those cults which constantly predict the return of the Christ and just forget and realign each failed prediction, with the cultists believing the new prediction just a fervently as the old.

And so now we have a new 10 year prediction for 2030. Yep we've got ten years before its all over folks... http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/oct/08/global-warming-must-not-exceed-15c-warns-landmark-un-report

Here's a prediction you can take to the bank; come 2030 there'll be a prediction we've only got 10 years to save the world.

Dear mhaze,

Good lord mate read the bloody thing properly will you.

It states they considered they had ten years to stop the emission escalating to a degree that warming will be inevitable resulting long term in the types of events described.

They were spot on. The world has warmed by about a degree and some of the predicted events will now be inevitable. Now it is just about limiting the damage.

Quote;

Across the US the average temperature has risen almost two degrees Fahrenheit since the start of the 20th century. And thatís only the beginning, says Bill Collin, who directs climate and ecological science at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab.

"We released enough carbon dioxide to continue warming the climate for several centuries to come," Collins says.

And he says that means a certain amount of future warming is already "baked in, if you will."

In other words, going back to that popcorn metaphor, even if you hit the stop button on the oven, some of those kernels will keep popping.

"If we were to stop emissions entirely of all greenhouse gases right this minute," Collins says, "we'd see roughly another half a degree centigrade by the end of the 21st century."

End quote.

Oh dear, SR.

Just making it up again....

"The world has warmed by about a degree"

WRONG. Depending on your favourite dataset the world has warmed between 0.4 and 0.6 c since 1989. They said between 1 and 7 c. Not even close.

None. NONE of their other prediction have come to pass or are even close to coming true. For example, "Coastal flooding and crop failures would create an exodus of eco-refugees threatening political chaos". You (and they)might want to pretend that they were talking about some indeterminate time in the future but they did actual produce maps showing 50 million climate refugees by 2010. Didn't happen, did it. Solution...the maps and the claims were memory-holed. And now we are told.."Tens of millions of people will be forced from their homes by climate change in the next decade". The more things change.....

"Across the US the average temperature has risen almost two degrees Fahrenheit since the start of the 20th century."

Well apart from the fact that that is wrong, i also isn't relevant since the issue is temperature post 1989.

The rest of your irrelevant article is just another example of what I was talking about ie ignore our previous warnings but totally believe our current warnings.

As to your silly assertion that they were talking about all these problems occurring at some point in the distant future, they said..."He said governments have a 10-year window of opportunity to solve the greenhouse effect before it goes beyond human control."

They didn't "solve the greenhouse effect" within those 10 years did they? But is the problem "beyond human control" now, or in 2001? If so, then there's no point worrying and destroying economies when its already beyond our control. If its not beyond our control (and cries to cut emissions would suggest the alarmists think we still have control) then their warnings were wrong and mere alarmism. You can't have it both ways although the cognitive dissonance of your average alarmist would suggest otherwise.


Just as their current 10 year warning is wrong and mere alarmism.

In 10 years time it will be another 10 years before doomsday. They keep on adjusting it as the are proved to be big fat liars. The liars will die still predicting that the end is nigh.

This is a global scaremongering tactic to ensure the worlds on schedule for its 2030 Agendas and Global Governance.
