Surviving The Global Warming Devastation

'We’re going into very new territory' explained the US National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration as they report that the world is hurtling towards global concentrations of carbon dioxide tipping over the 400 parts per million milestone.
The Southern Hemisphere atmospheric measuring station in Australia is poised at 399.9ppm while the station in the Northern Hemisphere went above 400ppm in 2013.
'We wouldn’t have expected to reach the 400ppm mark so early' said David Etheridge, an atmospheric scientist from the CSIRO, which runs the Australian measuring station, 'CO2 Concentrations are growing fast as warmer land areas release carbon. So we would have otherwise expected it to happen later in the year. No matter what the world’s emissions are now, we can decrease growth but we can’t decrease the concentration'.
This year has seen record hot global ocean temperatures, air surface temperatures has been breaking annual and monthly temperature records and in a great bit of understatement, the NOAA signed of with a sigh of 'It’s pretty ugly when you look at it'.
Decades of warnings have gone unheeded so it may be that we have carelessly crossed a tipping point so it's a case of it may be too late and our own foolishness has bought natures cataclysm upon us so time to limit the effects of devastating runaway global warming with lessons on how to survive it.
If that includes constructing huge biospheres or shifting our cities underground then we should make the move towards investigating the options we have so that the population of the Earth can survive our own absurdity.

Of course they did not expect the levels - because their models don't work very well... They are continuously shocked to find out they are wrong. Kind of amazing that they speak with authority and are considered credible when time and again they are surprised..,

Less credible then the people who STILL refuse to accept the globe is warming? Scary that it is happening quicker than they thought meaning we are even more in the mire than we thought.

Actually, we were supposed to all perish last year. How is global warming happening faster than that?

It is also possible they are full of Bologna...

The global 400 ppm happened faster but nothing to do with bologna whatever that is.

You mean faster than their broken models predicted? If the models are broken how do they matter?

Falling on a bruise said...

If the models predicted it, and it has happened, how can they be broken?

I thought you said they were surprised: "we couldn't have expected..."

In other words, their model was wrong again.

It forecast 400ppm, we got 400ppm, so what's wrong apart from it being a few months out? It still predicted it.

I think you make a good point, but they are the ones that said they are surprised. But then, they said most major coastal cities would be under water last year. So, I don't trust their expectations.
