Bill Gates has some terrifying truths, as bad as you think Covid is, oh the Climate Crisis will be vastly worse…
“As awful as this pandemic is, climate change could be worse.” So says billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates in a recent blog post.
“A global crisis has shocked the world. It is causing a tragic number of deaths, making people afraid to leave home, and leading to economic hardship not seen in many generations. Its effects are rippling across the world,” Gates wrote. “Obviously, I am talking about COVID-19. But in just a few decades, the same description will fit another global crisis: climate change.”
…we are already seeing the temperate and stable climate descend into free fall…
The plight of millions of Americans freezing in Texas is heartbreaking, infuriating and a reminder of just how unprepared the U.S. is when it comes to dealing with the impacts of climate change. Right now, we’re living through a massive shuffling of the cards when it comes to our planet’s weather systems. In this interregnum between what came before and the end result of the Anthropocene’s massive transformation of the globe, the only constant will be unpredictability.
…and new modelling each year shows the worst case scenario rapidly becoming the only scenario…
Past predictions of sea level rises have turned out to be “on the money”, with scientists now warning we’re on track for “metres of sea level rise” close to the worst-case scenarios they can think of.
…we can listen to the best science when it comes to protecting us from Covid but are deaf to the science screaming at us that we urgently need to start adaptation for a far more dangerous weather climate.
Those with vested commercial interests to deny climate change fund the quack science and rely on ideological storm troopers like National Party & ACT voters to fight out of pure cultural spite. None of them can admit they have been wrong all this time and they will die in a ditch to minimize the impacts of Climate Change at all costs.
This is a cultural bitterness for them, further proof that the white bloke is being beaten down by a rainbow coalition of hippies. For them their denial is just a sad societal face saving exercise that no one is listening to any longer.
Climate deniers are creationists in an evolution conference and attempting to depoliticise this fight produces weak kneed nothings like the Climate Commission suggested earlier this month.
At some point we need to stop begging the NZ Right to accept climate change and just fucking tell them this is the way it is now, and if you don’t like, go get fucked.
We will no longer tolerate climate deniers as the planet burns before our eyes.
Climate deniers are to science what Qanon is to rational debate. The sooner the Climate Change Commission acknowledges that, the sooner we can force the radical adaption we will require to survive this.
Being carbon neutral in 30 years is not a solution, and if you think it is, you are part of the problem.
