Too late to stop Climate Change?

Posted on 30 January 2020 by Guest Author

It feels like our targets to limit global warming are slipping through our fingers. But no matter how bad it gets, it's never too late to make a difference, and stop climate change from getting even worse.

Comments 1 to 6:

  1. Can anyone please suggest any good articles describing CO2 levels in the various layers of Earth's atmospher ? I recently read an argument that since CO2 is heavier than air, almost all of the CO2 is at surface level, which is wrong.

  3. Based on a two-year research project done in Sweden 1975-77, and the 40 years since, its too late, really, for business as usual.

    Business as unusual has yet to show up.

  4. "Too late to stop Climate Change?" never be to late.

    2. In my the very first post here i wrote: "...6. We have to speak NOT about sea level, but about forest fires, droughts, health, economic....locusts.... Forest fires produce smoke, enough to destroy health, even kill millions....."
    And today read about big/ unprecedented threat/problems with locusts  in Africa. The biggest in last 25 years.
    "A typical swarm can contain up to 150 million locusts per km2, and its daily consumption of crops can correspond to the daily consumption of 35 000 people. The current swarms represent an unprecedented threat to food security and livelihoods in the Horn of Africa."
    But i am waiting more: the locusts in Europe, Noth America and even Asia in .......biblian numbers. Global warming in all its shine.    ..   censored
