…If We Don’t Stop Climate Change Now, New Paper Claims…!
Gloom and Doom, all in good faith and fun for all. If you want to get scared, read on! (lol) Oh, and btw, the news is from LiveScience.
Gloom and doom news this week
It seems every week there’s a scary new report about how man-made climate change is going to cause the collapse of the world’s ice sheets, result in the extinction of up to 1 million animal species and — if that wasn’t bad enough — make our beer very, very expensive. This week, a new policy paper from an Australian think tank claims that those other reports are slightly off; the risks of climate change are actually much, much worse than anyone can imagine.
According to the paper, climate change poses a “near- to mid-term existential threat to human civilization,” and there’s a good chance society could collapse as soon as 2050 if serious mitigation actions aren’t taken in the next decade.
Published by the Breakthrough National Centre for Climate Restoration in Melbourne (an independent think tank focused on climate policy) and authored by a climate researcher and a former fossil fuel executive, the paper’s central thesis is that climate scientists are too restrained in their predictions of how climate change will affect the planet in the near future.
CONCLUSION: Don’t worry about the future, live the moment, the “here and now” is all we have… and it is WONDERFUL! 😁💪🌈💙💓💚🙃😹
