Major global warming report Friday

Global warming

The IPCC draft report due Friday on climate change is dire indeed.

It’s been six years in the making. 2500 reviewers, 800 authors, and 450 lead authors from 130 countries have participated. Some of the already released findings conclude

Billions will face water and food shortages. Yes, billions.

Seven million homes will be flooded due to rising oceans. Rich, poor, it matter not. They will be gone.

Heatwaves and storms will be more severe. Hurricanes will be less frequent but more powerful.

The Great Barrier Reef, the largest living thing on earth, is toast.

A couple more degrees temperature increase and Australia’s alpine regions and the Amazon forest will collapse.

Sea ice will disappear in the summer.

Snow cover will shrink and permafrost wil vanish.

Apocalyptic, isn’t it?
