Catastrophic Climate Change: It's Man-made.
We have met the enemy and he is us.
- Pogo (Walt Kelly for Earth Day 1970)
It's Killing Us
Catastrophic Climate Change (CCC) is effectively a suicide pact by the entire human race. We will not give up our profligate use of
fossil carbon fuels, the burning of those fuels is driving climate change, and climate change is now killing us. There is more to it
than just the CO2 levels in the atmosphere, though it is a reasonable and simple indicator.
Let Me Count the Ways
Actually, I know I can't list all the ways we are forcing climate change. But I can provide a few examples.
Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Nitrous Oxides (NOx)
Thresholds and Triggers
The Atlantic Conveyor
Arctic Sea Ice Melt
Greenland Glacier Melt
Antactic Glacier Melt
Sea Level Rise (SLR)
Atmospheric Water Vapour
If you wanted change, I think you're going to get it. However, I don't think you're going to like it.
