Five Point Four Degrees Fahrenheit

Or three degrees Celsius.

This is what that much global warming will look like. As Ten Bears pointed out, this was done by that pinko magazine The Economist. {/sarc}

A long time subscriber. The more volatile the world, the better the value. They have a number of subscribers events that you can do straight up or wait for the Youtube.

It's always paid for itself in the geo-political forecasting game.

I suspect that we're out of time already.

Friday, in front of Raley's, I saw a guy in a CalFire uniform. We had just gotten five inches of rain from the atmospheric river storm. So I asked him if that was it for the year. "Hell no, we had another fire this morning."
It didn't used to be like this. It's fucking November.

Hard to disagree at this point. I mostly looks like dystopia from Science Fiction of the 60's and 70's if we manage to avoid nuclear war.

Well, this is the sort of story that will sell magazines, but it's not mainstream science: https://borepatch.blogspot.com/2019/02/even-un-ipcc-says-were-not-headed-for.html

Here's the key quote (from testimony to Congress):

“Every single catastrophic scenario considered by the IPCC AR5 (WGII, Table 12.4) has a rating of very unlikely or exceptionally unlikely and/or has low confidence. The only tipping point that the IPCC considers likely in the 21stcentury is disappearance of Arctic summer sea ice (which is fairly reversible, since sea ice freezes every winter).”

The IPCC Assessment Reports are the gold standard of climate science. The Economist, not so much. Still, this is the kind of article that will sell magazines.
