Abrupt Run-Away Climate Change Is Now
2005 was the warmest year since the late 1800s, according to NASA scientists. 1998, 2002 and 2003 and 2004 followed as the next four warmest years. Scientific predictions regarding the rapid rate and serious impacts of climate change caused mostly by fossil fuel emissions have proven correct. Long-standing warnings that climate changes may be abrupt and particularly severe due to runaway positive feedbacks are also appearing to be confirmed. Our response will determine the extent and seriousness of extreme weather, drought, sea rise, agricultural collapse and forest die-back which are now upon us. The future of humanity lies in the balance – we shall either change our ways and evolve, or suffer a hell on Earth and a grisly death of civilization.
