A high emission scenario can't happen?Under the high emissions scenario that the scientists modeled, in which pollution from the burning of fossil fuels continues to climb, warming would trigger ocean species loss by 2300 that was on par with the five mass extinctions in Earth’s past. The last of those wiped out the dinosaurs.
What utter nonsense. It’s modeling based off a scenario that can’t happen.
A rapture like cult.
The reality is that they don't know enough about methane hydrate behavior or quantity to model it adequately so it's totally omitted from the models--but it very well might be even worse than the CO2. Even if we can live under AC that doesn't mean our food sources can.
The reality is we are already seeing places experiencing deadly heat (at 95F wet bulb you can no longer maintain body temperature), something that wasn't expected for decades. We're getting basically the worst case scenario, why do you say it's impossible we will continue to get that?
