"....even if we meet the Paris pledges..."

Yeah. We knew that. Kyoto, Paris and any other accord or pledge were never anything more than feel good bullshiat.

FTFA: Sea ice extent, which has shrunk about 40 percent since regular satellite monitoring began in 1979, could reach zero percent in summer as early as the 2030s.

No. It will be zero in the summer in the 2030s, with a very very high probability. There in an excellent chance it will happen in the next decade.

We could have gone further than those agreements, but that would make fossil fuel company executives cry in their mansions.

2030s is the earliest we could see ice-free summers under typical climate model projections for high emissions scenarios.  Median date is more like 2050s.

There are graphs of Arctic temps over the past 600,000 years through which you can watch glacial advances and retreats. The warmings following peak advances are geologically instantaneous. So, it's easy to imagine the fast rise in temps that they are talking about based on past climate behavior.

Hey, you're shrugging in the SE dialect!   I tend to shrug in the more western ones.   The North Slope shrug might be more of a "Oh we are farked".

BorgiaGinz: Your children are going to die from starvation.


Not my children, and not likely any of the children of the posters in this thread.

In fact, climate change has increased agricultural output in Canada and Russia.

The bigger issue are the areas just outside of deserts such as the Sahel, poor countries in Africa that won't be able to cope with radically unpredictable weather, areas that are barely above sea level like Bangladesh (just see what happens when the population of Russia, squeezed into an area the size of NY State, in a generation - India's building a wall around them, FYI).

No my Fark friend, my children won't starve. Millions of children will though and as the article points out - most of the affected had little to do with it.

Some environmentalists gave Obama a lot of flak for not going far enough.  Really an amazing accomplishment.  Once we get our heads together there is a lot we can do both in terms of adaptation and remediation.

And that will lead to migrant caravans, walls, and enable the rise of right-wing nutjobs who promise to build a wall to stop starving people getting food for their children. When there will be plenty of food on their side of the wall to spare...

Northern: Some environmentalists gave Obama a lot of flak for not going far enough.


Yeah. Some environmentalists will never be happy no matter how much is done, and them not accepting that what is being done is all that can be done in the current social and political climate hurts the very cause they support.

Nothing happens in isolation. To do anything positive when others are trying as hard as they can to stop you is to be applauded so the next guy feels it is worth doing.

If you moan they did not do enough when they did what they could then the next guy will just see that doing what they can will just get complaints instead of praise. So they will do nothing and get just as much complaint as if they did something.

Environmentalists, if you think it is so easy, you try being the next guy...

Didn't think so.

The Arctic has been ice-free for four whole years now, so I don't know why you guys are complaining.

Well, they told us in 2008 that it would be ice-free by 2015. Was that prediction wrong?

I'm not so sure that India, with 1.5B hungry mouths and their own climate issues, will be able to accept 150M hungry Muslims politically or otherwise.

Myanmar sure as hell is prepping for a migrant problem by pre-emptively expelling Rohingya (They're basically ethnic Bengalis who live in Myanmar).

But in other places you're going to see exactly what you're talking about.
