When Will Environmentalists Face up to the Impending Catastrophe That Goes with 6 Degrees Celsius?

by Kevin Hester
(Auckland, New Zealand)

When are environmental activists going to face up to the impending catastrophe that goes with 6 degrees Celsius?

This is not viable for most species including humans.

Since 2 degrees Celsius is now baked in, we need to start being honest and speaking out about this disaster and stop repeating the ridiculous 2 degrees Celsius arbitrary target (see my Facebook notes)

Answer by Laurent Cousineau

As a matter of fact, there are not that many environmentalists that are using that target. Of course, we need to reduce the effects of climate change as much as possible.

The reason why they are using that target is because they want to avoid the worst possible scenario and hence they are saying that we have a "budget" of 2 degrees Celsius.

In reality, a warming of 2 degrees Celsius will have severe impacts on mankind and should be avoided at all costs.

Deniers Are Holding Us Back!
by: Truth Teller

Yes, I said it! Deniers are holding us back from fighting global warming and climate change! We are falling behind , and it is their fault. We need an aggressive action against CC, or we are looking at a future of hell to pay. Our children and grandchildren deserve an Earth that's worth living on, not one that's filled with strife and grief! The Koch brothers are funding 65 million dollars alone to fill denier's heads with ridiculous conspiracy theories and lies about GW and CC! It is but a small, noisy minority that believes such foolishness, but it put's doubts in people's heads, something we don't need, when time is of the essence!
