As 2019 is ending, have a look at how we have fared this year,climatically.How hot are we?Pretty hot.
Three surface temperature datasets suggest 2019 will be the second warmest year in the instrumental record ( >85% likelihood).
Virtual guarantee this will be the 5th year in a row more than 1°C above late 19th C, and a top 5 year. It will be certain that the top five years will have occurred in the last five years.
5 warmest years in a row is not a good sign.Earth is changing.
Every year I hope for a point where in which there is actual change from people.This year brought Greta Thunberg, Earth has a bright future, with these children, But I am sincerley scared,will they inherit it?
The change in global currents is alarming.India alone saw 6 cyclones in a row.My hometown in kerala had floods consecutively for 2 years.
There is a pattern in this chaos.Earth has given warnings.Please heed them & change.
We have only one planet.There is no place like earth, the exo planets we found doesnt even come close to earth ( in terms of beauty & life support systems ).Lets unite to protect it.
Happy weekend :)
@Simplyswapy There is virtually no serious will to do the needful to fix things. Sentiment and handwringing and lamentations, but no one is stopping the buck , nor likely to do. I’m sorry...
I think its beyond what a single person can do to save it.But we have started the conversation which is good.But not good enough.What we need is a huge systematic change.restructuring of economy.
