Climate Change Nightmares are Already Here

In this Rolling Stone article, patient  The Point of No Return: Climate Change Nightmares Are Already Here, website like this it seems apocalyptic climate changes are already here. Between melting icecaps, warming ocean currents, algae blooms and the like, we could see a climate change within one generation.

Some apocalyptic notes from the article:

“[…A]¬†team of climate scientists had identified a newly important feedback mechanism off the coast of Antarctica that suggests mean sea levels could rise 10 times faster than previously predicted: 10 feet by 2065.

This leads to the scientists’ warning:

“We conclude that multi-meter sea-level rise would become practically unavoidable. Social disruption and economic consequences of such large sea-level rise could be devastating. It is not difficult to imagine that conflicts arising from forced migrations and economic collapse might make the planet ungovernable, threatening the fabric of civilization.”

Crazy storms are coming:

Since storm systems and jet streams in the United States and Europe partially draw their energy from the difference in ocean temperatures, the implication of one patch of ocean cooling while the rest of the ocean warms is profound. Storms will get stronger, and sea-level rise will accelerate.

And the apocalypse could happen in one lifetime:

Jacquelyn Gill is a paleoecologist at the University of Maine. She knows a lot about extinction[…]. The ancient data she studies shows “really compelling evidence that there can be events of abrupt climate change that can happen well within human life spans. We’re talking less than a decade.”
