Oxford University : “A billion people will lose their homes due to climate change”

Up to three billion people could lose access to clean water supplies because global temperatures cannot now be stopped from rising by 4C.

We will reach a tipping point from which temperatures will go up even faster. The world will then start to look very different.”

this could lead to the creation of “ghost states” whose governments-in-exile would rule over scattered citizens and land lost to rising seas.

Researchers such as Richard Betts, head of climate impacts at the Met Office, calculate that a 4C rise could occur in less than 50 years, with melting of ice sheets and rising sea levels.

Devastating changes to sea levels, rainfall, water supplies, weather systems and crop yield

    I guess in the heat and drought, everyone bites their lips off.

    But, If they’re all so hot, why are they wearing sweatshirts?

    Coldest November night on record in parts of UK
    Temperatures plummeted to the coldest on record for November in many parts of the UK overnight. Northern Ireland reached a new low of -8.6C (17F) at Aldergrove, in Belfast, while in Sennybridge, in Powys, the record was broken with -14.3C (6F). In Loch Glascarnoch, in the Highlands, it was -15.3C (4F), and in Shawbury, in Shropshire, the low was -12.5C (10F).

    Norway is ice cold too, with some places having the coldest November weather in 140 years. Where I live, we have a mere -9 C (which is “only” 7 C below normal), but it’s much windier than usual for such cold weather, so I can’t remember ever having experienced several weeks of such weather in November.

    I smell the stench of desperation.

    2 more weeks of H I S
    High Intensity S###. It is like these people have Diarrhea of the mouth. Or the BS they hear form their Puppet Masters is so foul they regurgitate it without thought.

  6. Maybe the Guardian will lose business. Maybe they will reach a tipping point and go out of business. A guy can hope, can’t he?
