We Have Less Than a Millisecond Left-
 None of us should be thinking or talking about anything other than climate change.


We Have Less Than a Millisecond Left

We have less than a millisecond left.

You see, the planet we call home has existed for roughly 4.55 billion years. But numbers that large mean almost nothing to me, nor to most people, so I choose to break it down. If we lay the age of the Earth out over a calendar year, that would amount to 518,264 years per hour or 144 years per second. So if we have 10 or 11 years until the point of no return, as climate scientists have repeatedly told us, that means we have a millisecond left before midnight in which to change our society completely to avoid turning the Earth into a piping hot fajita. (If you want to be more generous and instead look at how long modern homosapiens have been walking around, it’s 315,000 years. So if you lay that over a calendar year, we have roughly 15 minutes before the stroke of midnight to combat climate change. Not sure that makes me feel much better.)

None of us should be thinking about anything other than climate change. We all kind of know it even if we think we don’t know it. Even people who deny climate change exists probably secretly know it. They’re just confusing what they want to be true with what they subconsciously know to be true. I did the same thing when I was a child and tennis legend Jimmy Connors lost in the semifinals of the 1991 U.S. Open after his monumental run at the ancient age of 39. (For an 11-year-old, 39 sounds pretty close to mummified.) I was certain Jimmy would be playing in the finals. I knew deep within my bones that Jimbo would dazzle us with diving volleys and mid-court passing shots in the championship match because how could the powers that be allow the only character America genuinely cared about to bow out before the finals? In my mind it was akin to killing off Iron Man halfway through the movie “Iron Man.”

Jimmy Connors did not show up to the finals. Climate change is the only thing we should be thinking about.

I don’t just mean there should be a report every couple hours about climate change by our bloviating bullhorns of mainstream news. I don’t mean once a day you should mention to a friend that Al Gore seems vaguely douchey but probably has a point. I mean climate change should be ALL we’re thinking about. It should be a major factor in every conversation, every job, every TV show, every humor column, every tweet, every clever T-shirt slogan and every fortune cookie message. Climate change should be everything.

Plastic action figures for kids should have one arm melted off to symbolize the effects of climate change. Your server at a nice restaurant should sprinkle sand in your soup du jour to remind you of the disappearance of fresh water. Ice cream should be exclusively served melted to symbolize rising temperatures. Hamburgers should cost $200 to compensate for the global emissions of factory farming. And every time you go ice skating someone should punch you in the face and yell, “Enjoy it while it lasts!”

We have less than a millisecond left.

Simply put, humans have no business going about our day-to-day actions as if we aren’t on the event horizon. It’s equivalent to working on your model train set while your kitchen is burning down, your spouse is in the bathroom battling an alligator that took up residence in the bathtub, and your 12-year-old daughter is in the living room having just been offered heroin for the first time. … Right now, humanity is still focused on the model train.

The International Governmental Panel on Climate Change says the point of no return is the year 2030. This obviously doesn’t mean everything spontaneously combusts at the stroke of midnight 2030 (although that would be fascinating to watch). It means that after that point—if we aren’t living vastly different lives—no effort will change the fact that the planet inevitably will become uninhabitable and we humans inevitably will go extinct and there inevitably will be no more skiing (both due to a lack of snow and due to a lack of fleshy beings to ride on skis). The year 2030 is the point of no return. It is the date of our impending, prolonged suicide.

Let’s assume the world’s greatest climate scientists are way off. Let’s assume these people who do nothing other than study climatic models using computer programs so sophisticated I wouldn’t be qualified to turn them on—let’s assume they have their swollen heads up their highly-educated asses. Let’s assume that they were so wrong that it’s not 10 years but instead 20 years until the point of no return, so the amount of time we have left is double what they thought. That still means we should be thinking about nothing other than climate change. It still means our very survival as a species, or lack thereof, will be decided in the next couple decades. It still means we have only a millisecond.

Maybe we’re right to die off. Maybe our hubris and egos the size and shape of SUVs have doomed us, and we should just give up and enjoy our final few years. But if that’s the case, I would like an announcement. I would honestly prefer a national address by some of our so-called leaders stating clearly, “Look folks, in order to continue civilized society of the human species, we would need to change everything. Every single one of us would have to labor toward a massive shift to a sustainable culture that works in harmony with nature, rather than abusing nature like it’s a servant who gave us an ugly look. We would have to focus on achieving this new society rather than spending a third of all our free time watching superhero movies. But we have no intention of doing that because it sounds kinda hard, not to mention corporate profits would suffer in the short term. So instead, we’re declaring here and now that we’ll all just keep functioning as is until such time as the oceans turn to acid, the ever-growing storms consume us, and California feels like the inside of a kiln. According to our best minds, that will be 10 to 20 years from now, so don’t worry about starting that retirement fund. Don’t buy the extended warranty on that vacuum. And whatever you do, at no point, and under no circumstances, quit smoking and drinking. …”Thank you, and good night.”

If that’s the choice we’ve decided to make, then I want an announcement along these lines. On the other hand, if we decide to do the opposite and save ourselves, someone should probably let everyone know it’s an all-hands-on-deck scenario.

Let’s make the call. We have less than a millisecond left.

Yep, we are basically out of time. I will not hold my breath waiting for any politician(s) to tell the truth, simply because said polititian(s) would have to include in their "State of the Biosphere" Speech a laundry list of proposed punitive measures on those most responsible for doing the polluting. If they did that, they would be deposed or dead within a week or so.

The article is basically preaching to the choir. We-the-choir know the score.


Quote
"The fossil fuel industry swallows up $5.3 trillion a year worldwide in hidden costs to keep burning fossil fuels, according to the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
 
This money, the IMF noted, is in addition to the $492 billion in direct subsidies offered by governments around the world through write-offs and write-downs and land-use loopholes.

In a sane world these subsidies would be invested to free us from the deadly effects of carbon emissions caused by fossil fuels, but we do not live in a sane world. "  -- Chris Hedges

The elite mega-rich ones doing the lion's share of the damage understand perfectly well how their profit over people and planet practices are destroying most of the habitat for mammalian vertebrate species on planet Earth.

They do not care.

They mistakenly believe that they will benefit from the massive depopulation ☠️ of our species. They firmly believe (even more mistakenly), that with their seed banks and animal DNA science, they can repopulate the Earth with the species that go extinct during this Sixth Mass Extinction.

They are deluded by their boundless ambition and greed. It is these planet killers that are guilty of hubris, not the rest of us. We may be guilty of hope (if said hope is false hope), but that is not hubris.

We may perish as a species, but it will be from the hubris of the profit over people and planet, selfish elite leadership, not because of the carbon footprint of the masses.

Climate Change Has Come

Posted on June 26, 2019, by Radio Ecoshock
 
This is it. Ice melt in the Himalayas has doubled just since the year 2000. We get the latest from Dr. Summer Rupper. While Europe swelters in unnatural heat, in the Arctic Greenland is melting a stunning 80% over previous estimates. It is all part of the biggest single impact of climate change on civilization: rising seas. Oceanographer and rising seas expert John Englander will be our feature interview.

Antarctic Ice Takes a Nosedive

Sea ice in Antarctica is experiencing a rapid and puzzling decline after years of gradual growth, scientists say. A NASA study of satellite data shows that ice levels hit a record low just three years after hitting a record high in 2014, bringing the amount of ice lost in Antarctica in this period equivalent to the amount of ice the Arctic has lost over 34 years.

Global weather patterns have formerly encouraged gradual sea ice growth on the continent, and some researchers worry that the mysterious ice decrease could mean overall warming has caught up with the South Pole. "The rapid decline has caught us by surprise and changes the picture completely," scientist Andrew Shepherd told the Guardian. "Now sea ice is retreating in both hemispheres and that presents a challenge because it could mean further warming."

by Sabina Zawadzki (Reuters) – A liquefied natural gas (LNG) tanker carrying a cargo from the Yamal LNG plant has spent this week making its way through Arctic waters north of Russia towards Asia, marking the first voyage of the 2019 summer season across the Northern Sea Route. The Vladimir Rusanov, an Arc7-classed LNG tanker that can plough through semi-cleared waters, left the Sabetta port on June 29 and is in the Chukchi Sea close to the Bering Strait.

By Michelle Soto for LatinClima  —  Read the original article in Spanish.

SNIPPET 1:

Central American tapirs (Tapirus bairdii)

We do not have elephants in the Neotropics, but we do have tapirs. Weighing 300 kilograms, tapirs are the largest mammals found between central Mexico to northern Colombia and Equator.

The Central American tapir (Tapirus bairdii) is capable of eating up to 30 daily kilograms of tree bark, seeds, and foliage. In fact, tapirs are quite crude when it comes to feeding and can even swallow whole seeds, up to six centimeters in size.

This peculiarity found in tapirs, becomes more significant when linking it to maintaining the rainforests. Tapirs are thought of as landscape architects and even engineers, as a result of their contributions to the ecosystem.  


SNIPPET 2:

Tapir populations are quickly declining. According to the Tapir Specialist Group, there has been a 50% decrease in population during the last forty years, which coincides with the destruction of 70% of their habitat.

Agelbert NOTE: The following is a screenshot from the video posted here. Nikita Zimov is absolutely right. Forget what is going to happen by 2100, as the beginning of the video mentions with some overly conservative graphics. ALL the severe consequences of Catastrophic 🚩 ☠️ Climate Change predicted for 2100 will be here within, at most, a decade.

I learned her of the 120 day "Farmed Soil Rule". That is, if land that is farmed does not remain moist from rain or water table source for at least 120 consevutive days per year, the soil will dry out and no crops will grow there. If the soil was used for grazing instead of crops, the ruminants will all die.

Prolonged inland dry spells, devastating formerly arable and grazing land areas of the world, are just one of the the habitat destroying effects of Catastrophic Climate Change, now increasing in duration and frequency.
Towards the end of the video they display expected desperate human migration patterns. Take a look at them to see exactly where the Fascist governments cursing human civilization will send troops to engage in ruthless genocide. You can bet your bottom dollar that said murderous brutality will be "justified" by those evil Orwellian bastards among us who believe Caring Capacity is a function of Carrying Capacity. Those are the "situational" ethics types who discard any semblance of humane behavior when they think their profit over people and planet "way of life" is threatened.

Unless the Fascist Hydrocarbon Hellspawn are stopped, what happens after 2029 will be much worse than the climate refugee migrations predicted in this video.

Published on May 1, 2019

How many millions of people will be forced to leave their homes by 2050? This documentary looks at the so-called hotspots of climate change in the Sahel zone, Indonesia and the Russian Tundra.

Lake Chad in the Sahel zone has already shrunk by 90 percent since the 1960s due to the increasing heat. About 40 million people will be forced to migrate to places where there is enough rainfall. Migration has always existed as a strategy to adapt to a changing environment. But the number of those forced to migrate solely because of climate change has increased dramatically since the 1990s.

It is a double injustice: after becoming rich at the expense of the rest of the world, the industrialized countries are now    polluting the atmosphere with their emissions and bringing a second misfortune to the inhabitants of the poorer regions. One of them is Mohammed Ibrahim: as Lake Chad got hotter and drier, he decided to go where the temperatures were less extreme and there was still a little water, trekking with his wife, children and 70 camels from Niger to Chad and then further south. The journey lasted several years and many members of his herd died of thirst. Now he and his family are living in a refugee camp: they only have seven camels left. Mohammed is one of many who have left their homelands in the Sahel - not because of conflict and crises, but because of the high temperatures. He's a real climate refugee.

Agelbert COMMENT: 👍 Better late than never. Now if they would just go from divestment to support for punitive action against polluting industries, that would be solid progress.

Kenyan Herders Switch from Cows to Camels, Thanks to Climate Change

Kenya’s Boran and Gabra people have been raising cattle for generations. Rising temperatures and unpredictable rainfall are changing their time-honored tradition.

Camels require less water, eat a wider variety of vegetation and produce up to six times more milk than indigenous cattle species. In the 1990s, livestock markets expanded in the area, and by the mid-2000s, the region had demand and a good price for camels and camel milk. From 1999 to 2009, the camel population in Kenya rose from 800,000 to 3 million. Read more.
