El Calentamiento Global Ha causado Daño Irremediable (Traducción en español

Original White Paper (1994-2001) by Brouse and Mukherjee

Abstract: It's Too Late

Global warming has caused irreparable damage to our environment. Almost all scientist agree that IN FACT global warming is a problem.
Humans have caused the destruction of the Earth's environment. Our planet has become unfit for human life. Now the question is can we adapt in time?

"We are not saying that the Earth's temperature is just going to rise. In general, as energy is added to a system, the fluctuations in the system increase. So, we expect more storms, more droughts, more wildfires, more floods, more fluctuations of all kinds. What we are saying is that weather conditions will become more volatile due to the impact of humans," said Mukherjee and Brouse. (2004)

The increase in extreme weather events wreak havoc on humans' ability to adapt to the changing environment. For instance, severe droughts followed by severe rains create devastating floods. The parched earth can not absorb the water. The run-off produces contaminated flood waters that pollute the drinking water supply and breed diseases. The extreme weather events in the United States have overburdened FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) and jeopardized flood insurance.

Feedback loops accelerate global warming. For example, global warming has resulted in tree deaths and deforestation. Trees are a natural carbon sink for carbon dioxide, as well as, provide shade and retain moisture. As trees die from the effects of global warming, climate change is accelerated resulting in more tree deaths.

Global warming has caused irreparable damage to our environment. Almost all scientist agree that IN FACT global warming is a problem. Humans have caused the destruction of the Earth's environment. Our planet has become unfit for human life. Now the question is can we adapt in time?

The answer is "probably not." Air and water are the two most basic needs for human survival. Fresh air and fresh water are becoming scarce natural resources. Fresh water is being threatened by a decreasing supply of potable water, as well as, salt water intrusion due to the rising sea level. Air pollution is now the leading cause of death and contributor to illness.

Droughts, floods, and other extreme weather events threaten food security. Not only does food insecurity increase human suffering, famine, and death, it is also a leading cause of social instability and war.

There is a rapid increase in the number of deaths and ailments attributed to climate change. For humans that can survive the effects, they must migrate. The ever increasing numbers of immigrants are known as climate change refugees. (2015)

What now?
From 2016-2022, this section was dedicated to hope and optimism; however, 2021 was a record year for greenhouse gas emissions. Then in 2022, Russia invaded Ukraine creating a global energy security crisis. Most countries chose to increase greenhouse gas emissions even further. Therefore, there is little to no hope. Currently, we have crossed the tipping point when human induced climate change triggers a chain reaction of feedback loops. The Earth will exceed 1.5 degrees Celsius (average global surface temperature over the surface of the earth for ten years) by the 2040's and a societal collapse will ensue. For the most part, the Earth will be uninhabitable for humans by 2070 UNLESS immediate action is taken.

What will create the change needed?
The oil industry is going to be like the tobacco industry. The consumers are going to claim ignorance to the dangers of burning fossil fuels and will file lawsuits against the oil companies. You will not be able to buy oil or get insurance at a reasonable price (similar to what happened to cigarette smokers, or oil could be banned altogether.)

How long would it take to go 100% green?
It depends on cooperation. If we all cooperated, we could change over within 6 months. However, we don't expect the climate deniers will cooperate. In the meantime, many countries plan to reduce fossil fuels by 2030. Some countries, such as China, are building nuclear plants. The UK will transition from natural gas to green hydrogen with most of the regulations in place by 2030.

The key to how fast the US transitions is in the cost to ourselves (since we don't seem to care about the rest of the world.) This can already be seen in Florida and Louisiana where almost all of the homeowners/hazard insurance companies have pulled out. FEMA is a good place to focus our forecasts. FEMA's flood insurance is the only government subsidized insurance available to everybody. When the government stops subsidizing extreme weather events, you will see an instant turnover to 100% green. The intensity and frequency of extreme weather events is growing exponentially; therefore, we expect FEMA will be bankrupted in short order. At that time, much of US real estate will become worthless and the cost of burning fossil fuels will be deemed too costly. The people impacted by financial and life losses will litigate the fossil fuel industry out-of-business.

How to go net zero now. Free and easy. Save thousands. Save the planet.
