How was that wild weather eh NZ?
Where parts of the coast line were flooded.
Hilarious stuff eh sleepy hobbits?
Probs is that it’s going to get worse.
Climate change caused by pollution from humans has super heated the bio-sphere in manner not since since millions of years. The normal cycles of the planet that slowly heat the planet up and down have been over run by human made pollution which is leading the entire planet headlong into sudden and catastrophic climate change that will make it difficult for our species and most of the species on this planet adapt in time.
It is no longer a scientific question of why climate change is occurring anymore than it is a question of the Earth being round. The only people who are climate deniers are those who feel culturally alienated by having to agree with environmentalists and those economically tied to the current capitalism that is causing the pollution that is driving climate change.
Climate Change is no longer a scientific question, it is a political problem.
From now on, The Daily Blog will be naming all storms hitting NZ by the names of MPs who are doing sweet bugger all and by the NZ Corporations exacerbating climate change.
The truth is that out current political system is utterly incapable of acting with the urgency required so demonising the MPs and Corporations causing this is a fantastic way to generate the level of loathing and hatred to motivate voters into voting a radical party into power.
Look at the current Government’s response to global warming – to be carbon free by 2030.
What a load of meaningless bollocks.
By 2030, over 50% of the oceans will be collapsing as bio-habitats.
By 2030, East Coast cities in the U.S. can expect to see two to three-times as many flooding incidents.
By 2030, 122million will be driven into extreme poverty as direct result of climate change.
By 2030, 100million will die as a direct consequence of climate change.
By 2030, even if the Paris Agreement is actually implemented, we will see a planet warm to 3.4 degrees by the end of this century meaning there will effectively be no future civilisation capable of surviving on a planet that warm.
2030, the number of extremely hot days — classified as maximum temperatures of more than 35C — are tipped to climb in all capital cities.
And by 2030 NZ might be carbon neutral.
It’s time to start fermenting the contempt required for enough voters to want to lash out at a political system too spineless and gutless to do what needs to be done in order to prepare NZ for the culture of adaptation we will need to survive the future our corporate overlords have locked us into and our Political Leaders have been too frightened to confront.
