    It's probably solar flare activity or ancient aliens roasting marshmallows under the Antarctic ice.

    I read a post about most coastal areas having massive problems in 5 years, the Maldives being completely drowned, half of Bangladesh being flooded in the next decade, and at the end it says this text was written 30 years ago.

    Global warming is real, but the scare mongering is often too much.

    Well, that is typical media sensationalism, since that sales and average person know little to nothing about climate and related systems. Although I once went through the article that says that this is actually a strategy to discard the global warming as an idea, creating a straw man is actually one of the oldest tricks in the book. Not to mention that Hollywood didn't make a single realistic movie about this, since that wouldn't sell.

    Plus I would like to say that even the term global warming itself is a straw man to some degree and better term is climate change. Which is because temperature is only one component of the issue (but important component). However in the mix you also have precipitations amounts and how they are scattered through the year, changes in average snow cover, species moving into what is now better environment for them (and therefore chaos in food chains), you have ocean acidification problem (what is toying with food for billions of people), you have increased pressure on infrastructure from "freaky weather", you have more energy in the system and therefore more turbulence (to the point of braking polar vortex, what creates very cold spells), ... etc.


    In my book "global climate destabilization" would be the best term for what we have at this point of the process. First you have to brake the system in order to make another one.

    .

    It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.

    Perhaps, but over last few centuries we didn't have a major political system that truly cared about nature. So destroying nature is more of a general human thing than Capitalism thing.
