Looming AGW/CC impacts in Europe -- Future heat-waves, droughts and floods in 571 European cities by Selma B Guerreiro et al However, the high impact scenario projects that most European cities will see increases in both drought and river flood risks. Over 100 cities are particularly vulnerable to two or more climate impacts. Moreover, the magnitude of impacts exceeds those previously reported highlighting the substantial challenge cities face to manage future climate risks. More frequent and hotter HW Heat Waves are expected for all European cities. Southern cities see the largest increase in the number of HW days (as much as 69%). On the other hand, central European cities, where both infrastructure and populace are generally not adapted to extreme heat, see the largest HW Temp max increases (up to 14 °C, far above estimates from other studies). Southern European cities will also see an increase in drought conditions in all scenarios and a fundamentally different climate in the high impact scenario with future droughts up to 14 times worse than the ones in the historical period. http://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/1748-9326/aaaad3

#164 ".... they will sign accords and then do what they want." Oh mirror mirror on the wall ..... DDS is obviously getting very confused between China and the USA. "Hey world, we are the USA, so we never have to practice what we preach." Be it agw/cc accords or any other kind of treaty and accord. The last 70 years of History proves that in spades beyond any doubt (expect for the uneducated, DK affected cognitive dissonant of the world). (shrug) No matter. The Chickens always come home to roost, eventually.



Comment on The global CO2 rise: the facts, Exxon and the favorite denial tricks by Thomas

RE: the-favorite-denial-tricks Here's another. https://unfccc.int/files/focus/long-term_strategies/application/pdf/mid_century_strategy_report-final_red.pdf Finally published on the 16th November 2016 after Trump had been elected, to be tossed in the trash can on 20th January 2017. This came after 8 years of wasted time on the subject of AGW/CC Energy, and pipelines and Fracking by the Democrats and Obama, the so-called great communicator and Nobel Peace Prize winner ordering murders to be committed by US citizens and their Proxies all across the planet and repeatedly lying through his teeth about all manner of topics Geopolitical, War, and Economics and repeatedly interfering in other nations governments and 'Democratic' elections. Do not get me started on Hillary as SoS. :-) Sorry, I think someone may have pushed my buttons again. (broadly smiling) AGW/CC action? Pffft

But speaking about the past, for a moment, it has been shown scientifically that up to ~2000 about 25% of all AGW/CC forcing has been done by the great USA with only 4% of the world's population. And that 25% does not include the agw/cc damage done across the world in other people's nations since 1776. Sure, claim what a great job the USA is doing recently in slightly decreasing it's ghg forcings, but that 25% does not include the GHG and LUC forcings of China, Mexico, Germany, Japan, Brazil, Indonesia et al from which the USA has and continues to import raw materials and goods from like there is no tomorrow. Then we might also quickly touch on what the USA and everyday Americans did to the Vietnamese, the Cambodians and the Laotians and to their lands in the past, and compare that with what the USA has done recently in and to Libya, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, Egypt, Iran, central america, south america and elsewhere. No? Too much? Where would Walmart be without the dirty fossil fuels used by China since 2000? Where is all that cement going to come from in Iraq and Syria and Yemen etc etc to rebuild those people's homes and commerical buildings and Hospitals and Power Stations? So sure, cry over the spilled milk of of X millions dead by those bad Communists in the past, but do not forget what the Shinto Militarists of Japan did to China and Korea. It's 2018 and the real issue today is not the Communists but is in fact the Consumerists! 25% of which is driven by the USA and Americans who look just like BPL. 25% of the personal responsibility for the 10,000 or so who died in the European/Russian heatwave rests on the lap of Americans. Right? There are many other examples where people are and will continue to die from manipulative pseudo Democratic Regimes as well their insatiable Consummerism and addiction to Power. So if in the near or distant future, 1 billion souls are killed by the Impacts of AGW/CC across the world, just know that Americans, be they pro or con agw/cc action, voters or non-voters, rebubs or dems or greenies will have the blood of about 250 million souls on their hands. I'm still waiting for the USA and Amercians to at least recognize the AGW/CC Reparations that are due to billions of people across this world already for the damage that it and they has already wreaked upon this planet and her peoples. I'll skip the reparations war crimes and genocide for now, as it's off topic. That's the reality today and tomorrow. Please ponder that logic if you dare. :-)

sorry, correction .... from Trump & Obama & the Clintons down .... for the Democrats are overall equally insidious and a clear and ever present danger to the world.

The general public would wise to quickly decide the entire climate science DENIAL community was quite mad, and untrustworthy, and Psychopathic delusional nutcases .... from Trump down and including many who are bloody scientists or hold PhDs in all types of disciplines. Forest Trees Nigelj .... forest trees! ;-)

#478, oh gosh, I didn't read it all .... "Thomas wanted climate denialists banned from websites. Tempting I admit, but word of this would soon get around, and the general public would quickly decide the entire climate science community was quite mad, untrustworthy, and they would be even more sceptical of agw climate change. Its a really obvious free speech issue!" Please don;t be offended but that is total bollocks Nigelj. It's even untrue. Neoliberal Koolaide is quite tasty and enticing but 99% of the time it is flat out wrong. If the crazy mad insane agw/cc science denialists have something to say then they can go run their own damned irrelevant websites. They do not belong on The Conversation, or RC or The Guardian either .... TG has a new rule a while ago, any climate science denialism and egregious trolling by deniers will be DELETED ... and eventually banned from the site. Their Moderators specifically asked users to report such garbage and help them get the lunatics of the comments boards. That is NOT a "free speech" issue at all, nothing to do with it. And fwiw, the only place i make posts to now and for a long time is here on RC. when I talk crap I appreciate my posts being sent into the cyberspace trash bin.... it gives me a chance for a do over. nothing wrong in that. That's not an infringement on my free speech rights ... not one little bit. cheers

Adam Lea @69 I don't think any climate scientists have actually said exactly that, so you would need to provide a link to someone. I'm also not sure whats wrong with cutting back meat consumption, flying less, and cycling where possible. None of this is the end of the world as I said. Cutting back on meat also increases lifespan and cycling is enjoyable and good for health. I don't think anyone has said cut right back on heating and freezing to death. This is why its more important to promote renewable electricity as fast as possible. You don't quite understand Killians view. He wants people to cut energy and technology consumption by 80 - 90%, so it is an extreme version of what you have just posted. That really does have impacts. I don't know what is meant by circular system, but perhaps he simply means sustainable. This is separate sort of issue to climate change, although they overlap in some ways.

#478 nigelj, re He is basically claiming I should not criticise your views No, that's not what am or was saying at anytime. nor am I saying that you should not defend yourself when feeling under attack and being verbally 'abused' either, nor do I say anything about killian feeling he is under attack and dealing with what he considers 'lies or abuse'. My focus and my interest is 100% about agw action and communication, and the facts as they are... especially HOLISTICALLY and SYSTEMICALLY in reality. The rest, arguments & personality clashes and mis-communications on text forums (here and every where else), imho is just fluff and bs. even when I do it myself. ROTFLMFAO ;-)

#479 Thomas said And then there is #474 Killian’s review, which is 100% correct in his breakdown or my intent and meaning, as well as that I have been way too polite and patient here over years. He still can't hear you, Thomas. It's time for a new Forced Responses so we can leave this spewing of his behind and get back to useful conversation.
