Thoughts on Global Warming.

After reconsidering my previous musings on global warming, I've come to the conclusion that the situation is hopeless, regardless of the science.

According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, global temperatures may increase by 1.4 to 5.8 °C between 1990 and 2100. Furthermore, if current trends continue, 100% of the people in the world in 1990 will be dead by the year 2100. Out of the six and a half billion people alive today, no more than a handful--perhaps a few hundred in the whole world--will survive even a 1.4 degree increase in overall temperatures over the next hundred years. Scientists say that regardless of whether the first trend can be slowed or reversed, the second trend cannot be stopped by any means currently known to science.

Selah.

Change is inevitable. The globe reached its peak temperature in 1998 want proof look at the data a link exists in my article.
