Earth near uninhabitable & horrifically inhospitable by end of century

"A rolling death smog that suffocates millions."

Excerpts from NYMag interjected with a comment from me in red brackets[]:
The Uninhabitable Earth, Annotated Edition
The facts, research, and science behind the climate-change article that explored our planet’s worst-case scenarios.

I. ‘Doomsday’

Peering beyond scientific reticence.

It is, I promise, worse than you think. If your anxiety [<<--Fordama!!] about global warming is dominated by fears of sea-level rise, you are barely scratching the surface of what terrors are possible, even within the lifetime of a teenager today. And yet the swelling seas — and the cities they will drown — have so dominated the picture of global warming, and so overwhelmed our capacity for climate panic, that they have occluded our perception of other threats, many much closer at hand. Rising oceans are bad, in fact very bad; but fleeing the coastline will not be enough.

Indeed, 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.


Read more of what is probably thee best example yet of exaggerated embellished hyperbolic climate change rhetoric from a MSM rag at the following link:
http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/20 ... umans.html


Recent hyperbole from Stephen Hawking's claims of 250 degree earth raining sulfuric acid and Jerry Brown claiming that if California's cap-and-trade bill withers, it'll be the end of organized human existence indicate (IMO) that the left is imploding over the Trump getting us out of the Paris climate scam accord.

For hundreds of millions of years, global temperatures and ocean levels have risen and fallen. For their own comfort and convenience, humans decided in overwhelming numbers to settle on coastlines, lake shores and riverbeds just a few feet above sea level. Now that the planet's normal variations are a threat, some of us have the hubris to think we can stop it. It we're so naive as to think we can stop what has always happened by driving Priuses and using LED light bulbs, maybe we're already screwed.

According to this NASA graph of the last 20,000 years of sea levels, nature already is on its way of flooding coastal areas...

Global socialism (LEDs) or not, coastal flooding is coming our way.

It's fun when you post stuff that you don't understand.

What's even funnier is when what you post gives more credence to climatology, but you think it debunks it.

Good times.

I understand that graph. This makes your comment more fun for me than it was for you... :D

Even funnier for me, I didn't say or imply anything about that post debunking climatology. That you came to that erroneous conclusion is not surprising, probably an emotional response because your fearful that your left-wing worldview is threatened.
