You Didn’t Walk To Work, So The Climate Of The Planet Might Soon Tip Over
Today’s doom story
(Sustainable Business) Scientists keep beating the drum, hoping the world will wake up to the fact that climate change is a real, non-partisan, non-advanced vs development country issue.
Dubbing the phenomenal recent explosion in human activity, “The Great Acceleration,” leading scientists say time is running out to minimize the risk of setting in motion irreversible and long-term climate change and other dramatic changes to Earth’s life support system.
If nothing is done, the world is on track for the worst predictions with temperatures set to rise by 6 degrees Celsius by 2100.
At the Planet Under Pressure Conference, taking place in London, 2800 scientists warn the earth is dangerously close to an irreversible tipping point.
Certainly, they wouldn’t take unnecessary fossil fueled flights to attend this conference, right? Plenary Speakers and Panelists:
- Bina Agarwal, Delhi University, India
- Yvo de Boer, KPMG, The Netherlands
- Lidia Brito, UNESCO, France
- Nigel Cameron, Center for Policy on Emerging Technologies, USA
- Shobhakar Dhakal, Global Carbon Project, Japan
- Sandra Diaz, CÃ³rdoba National University, Argentina
- Will Steffen, Australian National University, Australia
And many from Brazil, more from the US (including all the way from California), there’s Sweden, Mozambique, Congo, Austria, Jordan, South Africa…and hey, there’s our good buddy Andrew Revkin from the NY Times. All these folks are taking some very long and certainly fossil fueled trips to tell us that CO2 from fossil fuels will make the climate hotcoldwetdry or something
