    Bottom line? We all us, everywhere, individuals, big companys, small companys, big countries, small countries, must stop burning fossil fuels now.
    Renewable and/or efficiency.
    It should have started 30-40 years ago, still, here we are.
    Interesting article on climate policy:


    "For climate risks, worst cases are much too dreadful to ignore. What we know is that climate change could be very bad for us; but no one knows exactly how bad it will be or exactly when it will arrive. How likely are we to reach tipping points into an irreversibly worse climate, and when will these tipping points occur? As the careful qualifications in the IPCC and other reports remind us, climate change could be very bad, surprisingly soon, but almost no one is willing to put a precise number or date on the expected losses".

    "When soot from fossil fuel combustion and wildfires drifts onto the Arctic ice and snow, it helps feed a spiraling cycle of warming, melting ice and rising sea level.

    New research carried out at remote locations across the Arctic shows that most of the soot—also known as black carbon—is coming from coal power plants, cars and trucks and factories. The findings could help countries begin to control this short-lived climate pollutant".

    Here, a fascinating read about melt water in Antarctica:

    "And ice shelf flexure could potentially impact other vulnerable ice shelves, causing them to break up, quickening the discharge of ice into the ocean and contributing to global sea level rise".

    UN IPCC Scientist Blows Whistle on Lies About Climate, Sea Level

    A new solar-driven cooling period is not far off, he said. But when Mörner tried to warn the UN IPCC that it was publishing false information that would inevitably be discredited, they simply ignored him. And so, dismayed, he resigned in disgust and decided to blow the whistle.
