From the article:
CRC quotes British Professor of Energy and Climate Change Kevin Anderson as saying the world is currently on a path to 3–5ºC warming by 2100. He warned that a 4°C warmer future is “incompatible with an organised global community”. That sort of temperature rise is “beyond adaptation”, he said, because it will “devastate the majority of ecosystems and has a high probability of not being stable”.
A further problem is that climate change is not one thing, but many. Humans must take extraordinary steps now or watch a disaster unfold through multiple mechanisms:
- Global Warming
- Sea level rise
- Gulf Stream Collapse
- Increased Hurricanes
- Mass extinction
- Ocean Acidification
- Rain forest collapse

But it is too little too late. The pace of change must accelerate dramatically.
“The Doomsday Book” by Marshall Brain lays out this scenario in amazing detail and offers solutions to prevent this doomsday scenario from unfolding. You can order the book today on Amazon and other retailers.
