IPCC report indicates increased risk of Morrison trips to Hawaii

The latest IPCC report on climate change:

This Summary for Policymakers (SPM) presents key findings of the Working Group II (WGII) contribution to the Sixth Assessment Report (AR6) of the IPCC1. The report builds on the WGII contribution to the Fift Assessment Report (AR5) of the IPCC, three Special Reports2, and the Working Group I (WGI) contribution to the AR6 cycle.
This report recognizes the interdependence of climate, ecosystems and biodiversity3, and human societies (Figure SPM.1) and integrates knowledge more strongly across the natural, ecological, social and economic sciences than earlier IPCC assessments. The assessment of climate change impacts and risks as well as adaptation is set against concurrently unfolding non-climatic global trends e.g., biodiversity loss, overall unsustainable consumption of natural resources, land and ecosystem degradation, rapid urbanisation, human demographic shifts, social and economic inequalities and a pandemic.

Pending Morrison Government responses include:

  • Silence on IPCC.
  • Subsidies for oil and gas firms.
  • Blocking private sector capital from decarbonising energy grid.
  • Increased marketing budget for greenwashing.
  • More trips to Hawaii.

  1. Last line of the Report for Policy makers:

    “The cumulative scientific evidence is unequivocal: Climate change is a threat to human well-being and planetary health. Any further delay in concerted anticipatory global action on adaptation and mitigation will miss a brief and rapidly closing window of opportunity to secure a liveable and sustainable future for all.”

    Translation – we’re all farked.

    • That’s the conclusion that the most literate and informed people on this topic I know have been telling me for a while. What we are doing is too little and too late. Couple that with an endless growth economics that seems more concerned with wealth accumulation than quality of life and we are giving the next few generations one hell of an inheritance.

    • The permafrost is melting. The methane that will release dwarfs the CO2 problem. The last time the permafrost went, 90% of all life on Earth died. Nothing we are doing is sufficient to counteract this feedback loop.

      We are farked.
