Dire Climate Warning from Top UK Scientists
In an unusually shrill tone from usually staid scientists, the top climate researchers from the UK have warned “the world must halt greenhouse gas emissions and reverse them within two decades or watch the planet spiralling towards destruction.” They predict that even a 3°C rise in temperatures would kill 400 million, wipe out countless species and lead to disease pandemics. A 3°C rise is half of what is predicted currently by the end of the century.
To keep global average temperature increase at 2°C, global emissions must peak by 2025 and then come down by 2.6 percent a year. They stressed that climate change was undeniable, that avoiding “dangerous” climate change is vital but difficult, and that continued governmental policy inaction was unacceptable. Such shrill scientific predictions make my long standing warnings that global ecological collapse and attendant deaths of billions is imminent all the more credible. The sky IS falling.
