Because climate change is a political problem & not a scientific question, The Daily Blog is naming all cyclones after our MPs and Companies who have done so much to hold back genuine climate change reform – this new one that is joining our increasingly erratic and weather pattern is called ‘Cyclone Hon Steven Joyce’ in honour of Steven Joyce who did sweet FA in 9 years on climate change.
Our climate is picking up speed for rapid climate change now. This has gone beyond being a problem to be dealt with in the future, it is an existential threat to our present.
There is a heat wave in the Arctic in the dead of winter the likes of which has never been seen before.
Climate change. It. Is. Here. Now.
This period of acceleration is when we need to be redesigning our culture, economy and society.
We desperately need to be in adaptation mode. We are not.
We will apparently be carbon neutral by 2030 though.
The millions dead and the vast economic wreckage by then will all seem worth it I’m sure.
Shout out to WeatherWatch.co.nz who once again called this before the State weather forecasters.
