Earth Will Become Uninhabitable Unless We Use Mostly Not Invented Technology To Suck CO2 From The Atmosphere

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

I’d like to say that the scary prognostications will increase with Biden winning (let’s face it, the fix is in, and it is a very long shot for Trump to pull it out), but, they never really end from the Cult of Climastrology. They’re also used to ramping it up a bit this time of year, ahead of the normally held UN IPPC Conference on the Parties. And here’s some doom

Any hope of keeping Earth habitable now requires sucking carbon back out of the atmosphere, a new study found

Even if we stopped emitting greenhouse gas today, the Earth would continue warming for centuries. Arctic ice and permafrost are already on an irreversible path of melting.

That’s the finding of new research published Thursday in the journal Scientific Reports. The model suggests that even if emissions were to drop to zero this year, global temperatures would ultimately rise to be 5.4 degrees Fahrenheit higher in 2500 than they were in 1850 (that’s 3 degrees Celsius).

“The tundra will continue to melt over the next 500 years — irrespective of how quickly humanity cuts its greenhouse-gas emissions,” Jørgen Randers, the lead author of the new study, told Business Insider.

That’s because climate change is a vicious, self-sustaining cycle: As permafrost thaws, it releases more greenhouse gases, like methane and carbon dioxide, which sustains warming over time. To stop that cycle, Randers said, we’ll need to suck carbon dioxide back out of the atmosphere.

That’s because this is the natural process of an interglacial period, no reason to blame witchcraft, but, hey, we can stop the natural processes of Earth by implementing tech that, other than trees, plants, and plankton, doesn’t really exist.

Randers’ study modeled the effect of various emissions-reductions scenarios on Earth’s climate between 1850 and 2500.

The data showed that if emissions stopped for good in 2020, sea levels in 2500 would still be more than 8 feet (2.5 meters) higher than in 1850.

Interestingly, that is exactly the amount of sea rise one would expect during a Holocene warm period. There should be a foot to a foot and a half of rise per century. But, too many people are too stupid and won’t take the time to do research, and the Warmists know this and can turn the Scary Screws.

To prevent the projected 3-degree-Celsius temperature increase, greenhouse-gas emissions would need to have ceased entirely between 1960 and 1970, the model found. In that sense, Earth blew by a climactic point of no return 50 years ago — before much of the public understood the realities of climate change.

So, if it’s too late, why are we bothering to talk about this? Oh, right, to institute Big Government, lots of government control of everything, and taxes/fees.

What’s needed, Randers said, is for companies and governments to “start developing the technologies for large-scale removal of greenhouse gases from the atmosphere.”

In technical terms, that strategy is known as carbon capture and storage (CCS). To prevent further warming after emissions have stopped, the new study found, at least 33 gigatonnes (36.5 billion tons) of carbon dioxide would need to be sucked out of the atmosphere each year. That’s roughly the total amount of carbon dioxide the global fossil-fuel industry emitted in 2018 (36 gigatonnes).

Power plants in the US, Canada, and Switzerland have already started utilizing CCS to lower their emissions. In 2014, the Boundary Dam Power Station in Saskatchewan became one of the first in the world to successfully use the technology.

Most of these are experimental, and don’t really do much. But, hey, why bother? It’s too late, right?

      Trump has won. Stop with your fear porn disguised as some sort of article.

      95% of so called Greenhouse Gases is water.
      Of the remaining 5% only 3% is CO2.
      Of that 3% it is suggested that only 3% is Man’s conbtribution.
      Do the math. It’s inconsequential nonsense.
      Liar Al Gore in Inconvenient Truth squashed the timeline to make the CO2 emmissions appear to correlate with temperature.
      It’s ALL provable BS. Long debunked utter drivel. Stop giving it airtime.
