The world’s leading climate scientists have warned there is only a dozen years for global warming to be kept to a maximum of 1.5C, beyond which even half a degree will significantly worsen the risks of drought, floods, extreme heat and poverty for hundreds of millions of people.

The authors of the landmark report by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released on Monday say urgent and unprecedented changes are needed to reach the target, which they say is affordable and feasible although it lies at the most ambitious end of the Paris agreement pledge to keep temperatures between 1.5C and 2C.

Seems I recall that Gore, and all the Weather Channel folks, Time Magazine, ABC, NBC, CBS and even PBS were telling us that by the yeart 2010 the oceans would rise so high that most of the existing coastline would never be the same. All polar bears would be gone. We would have shorter, milder Winters, and longer, hotter, drier Summers. Hurricanes would abound!

How'd that wee prediction go for 'em?
:)

And the following prophecy is coming into full realization.

The earth lies polluted under its inhabitants for the fruit of their doing."

How much evidence of this coming about do people need?

This human activity trait also points clearly to the reality of this age, that all is to decay and be replaced by something much better......just ask Jesus.

Now, let us all praise God and thank Him for He is worthy, not us.

What a hero! If he hadn’t spread awareness we surely wouldn’t have made it this long.

These so-called experts leave the largest carbon footprint while consuming the most fossil fuel to keep their fleet of BMW's running. The temperature raises a degree, really, who cares? It's no big deal. Odds are it will go down a degree. Either way I don't plan on changing how I live my life because of what a bunch of loons say.

I read a report once that Al Gore consumes the most electricity in the state of Tennessee to support his lavish lifestyle.

Yes, I have been hearing them from time to time for the past many decades.

I have not regarded them as doom and gloom, simply status reports based on empirical study.

Man thinks himself way too important if man thinks he can destroy the earth. God will destroy the earth but man will never destroy the earth. As long as man is on the earth there will be seed time and harvest.

For the cause of Christ
