Time to Panic
The planet is getting warmer in catastrophic ways. And fear may be the only thing that saves us.
By David Wallace-Wells
Mr. Wallace-Wells is the author of the forthcoming The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming.

The age of climate panic is here. Last summer, a heat wave baked the entire Northern Hemisphere, killing dozens from Quebec to Japan. Some of the most destructive wildfires in California history turned more than a million acres to ash, along the way melting the tires and the sneakers of those trying to escape the flames. Pacific hurricanes forced three million people in China to flee and wiped away almost all of Hawaiis East Island.
We are living today in a world that has warmed by just one degree Celsius (1.8 degrees Fahrenheit) since the late 1800s, when records began on a global scale. We are adding planet-warming carbon dioxide to the atmosphere at a rate faster than at any point in human history since the beginning of industrialization.
In October, the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released what has become known as its Doomsday report a deafening, piercing smoke alarm going off in the kitchen, as one United Nations official described it detailing climate effects at 1.5 and two degrees Celsius of warming (2.7 and 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit). At the opening of a major United Nations conference two months later, David Attenborough, the mellifluous voice of the BBCs Planet Earth and now an environmental conscience for the English-speaking world, put it even more bleakly: If we dont take action, he said, the collapse of our civilizations and the extinction of much of the natural world is on the horizon.

Hang up all the fear mongering. You're scaring the children.
This farticle is like shouting “Gun” at a performance of that goofy “Hamilton” show in San Fernasco.
“Wallace dash Wells”
Pick a fvchin’ name, lady.
These guys are either cynical sons of b1tches or dumb as rocks!
100 degrees in Texas is fine weather for yard work. Probably is wise to sit in the shade when it gets over 110.
Three weeks ago this coming Tuesday, the weather bouy in lake superior, northwest corner recorded 56 degrees below zero, that is a record cold temperature by 16 degrees. Globull warming my behind.
There are parts of this nation that have a spread of temperatures each year that are over 100 degrees apart.
End of the world?
These clowns can’t think themselves out of a paper bag.
All phenomena that have occurred since time began, long before the liars and global marxists invented "climate change." And wildfires aren't even climate-related, especially when they're set by human hands.

One degree. We're supposed to believe that the apocalypse is just around the corner because of one lousy degree ... in more than a hundred years?
This is tragically crazy! We are entering a Grand Solar Minimum. There have already been crop failures in the Northern Hemisphere. We should be organizing food storage on a Biblical scale, and pumping as much CO2 into the atmosphere as possible.
It may be that God made the Earth to increase CO2 in the atmosphere for this time when we would need to grow more stuff for the coming mini ice age. There are air locks on hot houses for tomatoes for a reason. They double the CO2 concentration to make the Tomatoes grow better.
These people really are trying to kill us!
Awhhh, crap...the sky is falling again...
There was a hot spell in Paris back in the '90s that they claimed killed 15,000 elderly people. Or maybe it was 15,000 per day, I can't recall.
LOL! Yeah, too bad about climate change but if you think I want to pay $8.47/gallon for gas, well, I don't really care if the ice caps melt.
“100 degrees in Texas is fine weather for yard work. Probably is wise to sit in the shade when it gets over 110. “
I’ve lived in Vegas 40 years.100 ain’t too bad, you can work till 105. Mad dogs at 110 to 115.
I drive a 57 Bel air with no air conditioning and I manage to survive.
The excessive fires in California were the result of evil politicians refusing to use scientific forestry to remove a build up of fuels in the forest. The Communists want to create horrible forest fires in order to shout the false flag of global warming. And then the intended legislation of socialism to cure the problem of global warming. And of course global warming from human beings never really existed. It was just an excuse to create a totalitarian socialist welfare state.
This morning it was 35 degrees, now it's about 45.
We get it, it's February in North Texas. One week it can get up to 80, next week below freezing. Man made global warming? Hogwash, DFW has added probably 3 million over the past 20 years...February has wild swings, and summers are still hot as hell.
Bring back global warming!!!
Get a job, save your money & make good decisions.
You too might be able to drive a modern vehicle someday.
It’s been reported that several of the big fires were false flag ops, CIA or someone wanting to force the AGW crock down our throats, started and directed the fires with drones and lasers. Video of the remains appear to bear this out. The truth, however, got buried under the “official” story. The whole AGW drive really IS a power grab hoax.
Not a lot of grass to mow in Vegas
