We're all doomed! We are 40 years from global catastrophe - and there's NOTHING we can do about it, says climate change expert.
The Queen of England, James Lovelock, Shell Inc., Margaret Thatcher agree... To read article click here. Bottom line, move north.
Lovelock basically says that there is little we can do about global warming. We have put as much CO2 into the atmosphere to imitate what happened on earth 55 million years ago when volcanoes erupted and spewed out CO2. Life was almost wiped out. He said that we are past the tipping point and in by 2040 the CO2 levels will be the same as 55 million years ago. He says it's too late.
Lovelock says that he feels sorry for the Americans because we will not let go of the fantasy that the problem can be solved. Green/Clean Tech will make a lot of money but not change the outcome. He says the Chinese will see their continent decimated first and they will move to Africa. (He thinks they have already begun.)
Lovelock thinks something bad is about to happen. Survival will depend on the ability to migrate and move as needed. Most people will be heading north. We have too many of our species for the earth to support and natural selection will eliminate the weak.
Basically, he thinks that our effort to change human industry and behavior is a waste of time. Pleasant thoughts... :-(
I think it is human nature to not give up! We have to try!!!
