Read it and weep...or in this case, sweat.

Enlightening article, thanks for posting. PBS News Hour had on a NOAA climate scientist last night who explained the high points of this study, too. Pretty dismal projections and conclusions.

My mind's trying to digest/envision what lies ahead for us. I covered some of this in my novel, Falling Through Time.

We're in for a rough ride.. can we adapt in time?

July was the hottest July ever--but just barely. It was just barely hotter than July 1936 for perspective.

Going "green" and creating less pollution is still a good goal. The number of ailments that pollution either cause or exacerbate are large. Just look at the increase number of people going to the ED during those wildfires here.

I wrote an article about the recent record "sweating" temperatures. In it I don't dispute the facts just don't agree with the interpretation of some.

Oh but our legislature told us not to worry about it. The seas shall not rise. It's against the law.
