This is just too depressing:
Human activity is changing the climate in unprecedented and sometimes irreversible ways, a major UN scientific report has said.
The landmark study warns of increasingly extreme heatwaves, droughts and flooding, and a key temperature limit being broken in just over a decade.
The report “is a code red for humanity”, says the UN chief.
But scientists say a catastrophe can be avoided if the world acts fast.
Acts fast? I mean, we can’t even get the same science deniers to take a free vaccine to save themselves from a pandemic that has killed 4 million people worldwide.
There is hope that deep cuts in emissions of greenhouse gases could stabilise rising temperatures.
Echoing the scientists’ findings, UN Secretary General António Guterres said: “If we combine forces now, we can avert climate catastrophe. But, as today’s report makes clear, there is no time for delay and no room for excuses. I count on government leaders and all stakeholders to ensure COP26 is a success.”
It’s pretty much game over then, isn’t it. I keep thinking of those morons who are in the ICU with covid and right before being intubated, ask the doctors for the vaccine, when it’s already far too late.
