    Nasa warned the Earth is trapping twice as much heat as in 2005 — a pace that's 'unprecedented'

    NASA researchers warned the Earth is trapping heat at a rate so much higher it's "unprecedented."

    The amount of heat being trapped by Earth has roughly doubled since 2005, the study found.

    The NASA and NOAA study pointed to human activity and changes in the oceans.

    Researchers from NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) found in a new study released earlier this week that Earth's "energy imbalance approximately doubled during the 14-year period from 2005 to 2019."

    Collapseologists are warning humanity that business-as-usual will make the Earth uninhabitable.

    Hundreds of scientists, writers and academics from 30 countries sounded a warning to humanity in an open letter published in the Guardian in December: Policymakers and the rest of us must “engage openly with the risk of disruption and even collapse of our societies.” “Damage to the climate and environment” will be the overarching cause, and “researchers in many areas” have projected widespread social collapse as “a credible scenario this century.”

    Read today that we just passed the "point of no return" on global warming...

    China and the US just need to stop doing anything. Like full stop.

    The rest we need to curb cars. Not in like 30 years. Like next year, tops!

    Sure, most of us just got 'till 2050-2060 to live anyway, but by 2100 Earth could be inhabitable around the Ecuator durring Summer and with full ice caps melted at the extreme North/South poles.

    • Also this is not an alarmist message, this is happening, we can do nothing to undo it, we can just mitigate some of the effects, but that's about it.grafician
    • Just wait, science will come up with something, defo going to happen.
      Just kidding, we doooomed.

    @utopian

    You clearly think climate change important. Yet you seem never able to share a personal opinion. Just lot of copy and paste. So i'm curious exactly what you think man is doing and its causes regarding climate change? Is it helping towards cooling or warming and is it more powerful than historical regular climate change? And do you think humans can control climate and if such a belief at what cost? What power should those be granted to save the earth from such travesties and what liberties will be denied for such aims?

    You passionately copy paste. But do you have any thoughts of your own?

    Welp, Scientists Found 28 New Virus Groups in a Melting Glacier

    This is how the world ends.

    From Tibet to the Arctic to Antarctica, glaciers and ice caps around the world are melting at alarming rates. Scientists are racing the clock and climate change to collect, identify, and catalogue the microbes found in ancient ice. Having a record of these bacteria, viruses, and fungi paints a sharper picture of our prehistoric past and could be valuable for use in studying future pathogens.

    So twitter’s new ban on political ads has had the unfortunate side-effect of also banning ads from groups that are fighting climate change.

    So exhausting. It’s science not politics. As long as this issue is conflated this way nothing will change (aside from the climate)

    • Completely agreed. It's just one big UGH at this point.garbage
    • "It’s science not politics" - you my friend have no clue.pr2
    • The fact that it is seen as a political issue is a triumph of modern marketing sadly. Oil companies spent a huge amount of money to make it seem that way.yuekit

    Meet the Money Behind The Climate Denial Movement

    https://www.smithsonianmag.com/s…

    There is a very well-funded, well-orchestrated climate change-denial movement, one funded by powerful people with very deep pockets. In a new and incredibly thorough study, Drexel University sociologist Robert Brulle took a deep dive into the financial structure of the climate deniers, to see who is holding the purse strings.

    According to Brulle's research, the 91 think tanks and advocacy organizations and trade associations that make up the American climate denial industry pull down just shy of a billion dollars each year, money used to lobby or sway public opinion on climate change and other issues.

    “The anti-climate effort has been largely underwritten by conservative billionaires,” says the Guardian, “often working through secretive funding networks. They have displaced corporations as the prime supporters of 91 think tanks, advocacy groups and industry associations which have worked to block action on climate change.”

    • Nearly a billion dollars a year is flowing into the organized climate change counter-movement. Thanks Republitards!utopian
