Tyndall Center : Global Warming Will Kill 90% Of The Earth’s Population

Warming will ‘wipe out billions’

Professor Kevin Anderson, director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change, believes only around 10 per cent of the planet’s population – around half a billion people – will survive if global temperatures rise by 4C.Anderson’s warning comes just eight days before global leaders meet in Copenhagen for the most crucial talks on climate change reversal since the Rio summit in 1992. Current Met Office projections reveal that the lack of action in the intervening 17 years – in which emissions of climate changing gases such as carbon dioxide have soared – has set the world on a path towards potential 4C rises as early as 2060, and 6C rises by the end of the century.

Anderson, who advises the government on climate change, said the consequences were “terrifying”.

For humanity it’s a matter of life or death,” he said. “We will not make all human beings extinct as a few people with the right sort of resources may put themselves in the right parts of the world and survive.

“But I think it’s extremely unlikely that we wouldn’t have mass death at 4C. If you have got a population of nine billion by 2050 and you hit 4C, 5C or 6C, you might have half a billion people surviving.

    I agree with Bill McKibben—that master of logical thinking—that some [people alive now] may be dead from climate change before this century is out!

  2. Puckster says:

    I wonder why that 500 million number keeps popping up?

    The Georgia Guidestones

    The troubling thing is……some people believe in this.

  3. Keith Grubb says:

    Projection at it’s finest. Without question they are rooting for disaster.

  4. John Edmondson says:

    As usual no explanation of why the rate of temperature increase is short by a factor of 10 for this to happen.

  5. Al Gored says:

    “Anderson… advises the government… “terrifying”.

  6. Ralph says:

    Does professor Kevin Anderson ever wonder why people come to Florida in the winter?

  7. Dan Zeise says:

    Yes, beat the CAGW drum on global catastrophe. The alarm over the past six months has gained across the MSM. The alarmists know quite well that the earth’s cycles are changing and not towards their agenda. Now the noble cause corrupted followers have little choice but to double down on their bluff. Next year the fall will be cool and the winter very cruel. The followers will soon realize the fools path they have been on in support of environmentalist’s desire to destroy western democracy. How many poor world wide will continue to die from cold, starvation and unsanitary water while tens of billions of dollars are wasted on the CAGW albatross, biofuel, windmills and solar energy?
