OP: Easy, scientists are not saying we are in imminent danger. Thatís the right wing media creating that narrative.

So words that describe the impacts seen all over this globe you classify as "alarmist rhetoric"? That's very odd.

Global Warming Imacts

The only alarmists are the deniers as what you've seen the OP discussing. His views are based on mass hysteria reactions. No thanks I prefer words that describe what's currently happening. Sorry you think those words imply something else.

Because this is about the silliest thing I've ever read.

It shows me that you clearly have no understanding on the implications the planet is currently experiencing due to human caused climate change or what the future implications are going to be.

Exactly what do you think a person can buy that will enable them and their family to survive the effects of human caused global warming?
Guns and Ammo or in some cases MORE guns and Ammo......................

SHATTERING TEMPERATURE RECORDS is language used to evoke excitement, or in this case, panic.

And if as you posit, these words accurately describe what is happening all over the globe, right this minute...then the question stands - what are you personally doing to prepare for the coming cataclysm that you are convinced is imminent? Like if it was me, I'd list all my survival prep that backs up my belief that said prep will very soon be necessary.

Default Your Personal Consumption Choices Canít Save the Planet: We Have to Confront Capitalism

100 companies have been responsible for some 71% of global emissions since 1988.

Many people worldwide and in our own country simply don’t consume enough for their lifestyle choices to matter.

Unless you subscribe to the notion that climate change could quickly affect us (like in the movie The Day After Tomorrow), then I do not believe there are any catastrophic events that will occur in many decades if not more. I do believe due to humans we are affecting change on the climate. But in the 59 years I've been alive, if I extrapolate the changes I've seen I believe on current course it could take 50+ years to really being majorly affected.

My life/death concerns are cars and guns, and what do I do about that? I drive every day and put on 20,000+ miles driving in a year. I don't like guns but know I could easily be in the wrong place at the wrong time. I don't see climate overtaking those concerns in my lifetime.

We have 12 years to limit climate change catastrophe, warns UN

The world’s leading climate scientists have warned there is only a dozen years for global warming to be kept to a maximum of 1.5C, beyond which even half a degree will significantly worsen the risks of drought, floods, extreme heat and poverty for hundreds of millions of people.

The authors of the landmark report by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released on Monday say urgent and unprecedented changes are needed to reach the target, which they say is affordable and feasible although it lies at the most ambitious end of the Paris agreement pledge to keep temperatures between 1.5C and 2C.
