CLIMATE: "Really, Really, Really, Bad News"

If, as the link above states in reference to this article is right, you might as well tell your children and grandchildren to bend over and kiss their asses goodbye. Investment in a mountain retreat in Nicaragua or Costa Rica or Venezuela might be in order, too. Only if you wish your genes to be passed down to the future generations of humanoids, though.


Because, what Alex Steffan fails to point out, what the article only subtly hints at, is the release of massive amounts of methane will likely result, along with the melting of the ice caps, in the rapid onset of a major ice age sometime in the next 50 to 100 years.


The release of huge quantities of fresh water from the poles will likely result in a stagnation of the world's oceans currents, resulting in the loss of air currents, resulting in the rapid increase of clouds, resulting in sudden, radical temperature drops at the poles along with concomitant growth of glaciation across the Northern latitudes resulting in a true Ice Age of an extant not seen on this planet in 100,000 years.

What to do?

Sorry, nothing we can do at this time will reverse the current path we are on. You are merely a passenger on this ball of mud.
