Occasional Thoughts on Climate Change

Recommended Posts

Imho this is more reassuring.

If the oceans can absorb this massive input of heat without substantial disruption, we are home free. All these effects are logarithmic, the most rapid impacts are early on.

So if the oceans can buffer several decades of warming, we will never have abrupt change, just stuff that has a generational lead time.

I think it might be too late for that.  The oceans have already been absorbing a lot and it's destroying the marine ecosystem.  In addition to that our oceans fuel our storms so warmer oceans mean many more extreme storms, which we're already seeing.  And there's also the coral reef bleaching issues.

We should just shut down the fossil fuel industry, period.

Whatever hit we get because of it, it's nothing compared to the damage the fossil fuel industry is doing.  It needs to be shut down completely.

I've followed this website and its predecessors since the 1990s. I read the book "1984" in junior high school 1964. A semi-retired computer and financial analyst today I see most here as intellectual robots programmed by the wealthy global establishment. For ten years I've watched this group dumbing down just as the rest of society has.
