StoPPeRmobile: I'd like to know what point in time the climate was stabilized.


The past 10,000 years, +/- 1C, during which all of modern civilization was built.

My approach to impending doom is "Meh, I'm doing what I can, so what happens is the best that could have happened, if it still wasn't enough I'm just going to have to be fine with that" :)

On the plus side, you'll probably be dead before your children can truly understand how selfish it was for you to have them.

I don't know, I'm 52 now and thoroughly pissed that my parents had me.

Meanwhile, I've had some days where I've looked to moving north, to Maine or upstate New York, to areas that have several decades of decent climate left and living an 18th century-style life.  It would be hard but it would be better than continuing to feed into all of this.

/question is
//when you don't produce money
///how do you pay property tax?


No matter were you go on the planet someone will always be looking for you to pay them for simply being there.

We call that freedom.

The issue is about rate of change. Do keep up.

Stupid Romans and their lack of carbon credits. They really should have listened to the Roman hippies.

Nice strawman.

In case the image in the comment just above didn't close your facehole, here is 'rate of change' WRT global warming again:

[Fark user image image 850x678]

Yes very stable looking graph. That must be why there were so many famines, because of all that stability.

Strawman says what?

Wait, you're not *trying* to deflect with straw arguments, are you...  you have literally have zero idea what you're even supposed to be looking at, and are dumb. Not in the invective - in the literal.


You don't understand what has and is happening.


Stopped reading there.

Oh you got me. That's why Hatusha is in the middle of farking nowhere. Oh and the people that migrated south to cause problems for the Republicans in Rome. Do you know what happens to irrigated land that does not get that same precipitation it has had in the past? Countless empires tell that tale. Spend a couple thousand more hours into history and you may notice the pattern of the demise if empires. Climate change always seems to be at the root. Starving children are hard to ignore.

Cheer up though. At least your grandchildren won't speak English as their primary language. So you have that going for you. Which is nice.

Relatively stable and relatively slow rate of change are the terms that should be kept in mind. Currrent rates of change and instability are far far greater than the changes you're talking about. What you're talking about should give you an idea of the potential impacts - if past, relatively small changes could contribute to bringing down empires, what will be the cost of the much larger spike we're currently undergoing?

Society is perfectly capable of mitigating damage and limiting us to what we believe will happen given ~2.5C warming.  It'll be shiatty for everyone and potentially devastating to hundreds of millions of poor brown people in poor nations.  But it won't be anywhere near the worst case scenario.

Society won't probably though because so many individuals are such absolute coonts that they refuse to modestly change the way they go about life, actually believing that chintzing in the present is going to magically preserve the future for their own progeny.

Those people are perfectly willing to kill off their own bloodlines, despite claiming that they're doing everything they can to preserve such.  They make absolutely no sense and should all have to die first because they deserve it the most.

Nick Nostril: One conspiracy theory:

Chinese scientists and politicians understand the future track we are on and have decided to do the only thing that can be done: eliminate as much of the human race as possible. Covid was a trial run to see how the world responds and to estimate the effectiveness of the real run. They then create a super virus, and along side it, its vaccine, then unleash the virus to the world. A select population is given the vaccine ahead of time, and voila, no moar 'merica and a lot of other countries. Instant "Green New Deal".

/ probably read it in a novel somewhere
// place is gonna smell for while though


That's some theory.  How does it mesh with the "it's a hoax" theory?  I mean do the same people believe both on different days?

also, FTFA  It's going to take centuries for the climate to stabilise after whenever our greenhouse gas emissions stop. Our greenhouse gas emissions are never going to stop until we're all dead.
