RE: A Warming Planet in Revolt, and a Collage for LMAC #89

in Let's Make a Collage6 months ago

This is a very important topic you bring on here.
I‘ve studied climatology and never read of an increase of 4 degrees Celsius („by 2099 the increase is as much as 4 degrees Celsius,“). That would be really frightening.

The collage is great 👍

I really appreciate your stopping by. I claim no knowledge about climate science, which is why I refer to sources that are more informed. I especially chose the Brookings Institute for the economic assessment because they are 'establishment' oriented (one of the financial backers is Qatar!). I figure if they have something dire to say about the economic consequences of climate change, that is persuasive.

Thank you for liking my collage. It's not very arty, but it does convey the message. Frankly, I'm really, really afraid for the future. I can't see anywhere the will to turn the climate crisis around. And even with the will, is there time?

I don‘t see the will either and I expect no effective supranational agreements.
And even if there was the will, I think the delayed effect of greenhouse gases could make big damage in the long term.

But I expect technological progress and our capability to capture CO2 from the atmosphere within the next 50 years. And I hope and tend to think that that will be soon enough 🙏🏻

Thanks for that one ray of hope in our environmental Pandora's box.
