How long do you believe it would take for climate change to severely harm us/make us extinct at the

Climate change is working on being fixed, no? I worry a lot about climate change, and I can't seem to calm down.

Answers:

Just a few weeks. No reason to pay your credit card minimums or your rent.

It's highly unlikely that our climate could change enough to render Earth uninhabitable. The most serious threat is the effect on agriculture. As temperatures and precipitation patterns change, some now highly productive agricultural land may become unworkable. This could lead to famines, mass migrations, and other politically and economically destabilizing trends. Worst case scenarios include widespread war and the fall of civilizations. However, humans are highly adaptable, and I think the race will go on in some form.

Time scales are difficult to predict due to the possibility of catastrophic (in the technical sense of the term) change. There are potential tipping points that could change the world over a few decades. For example, a fast enough melting of polar ice could disrupt major ocean currents, producing major climate changes (droughts, advancing ice sheets, etc.) within your lifetime.

The problem is being worked on, insofar as efforts are being made to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions that appear to be a major contributor. However, we've been pumping up atmospheric CO2 levels at an accelerated rate for a couple of centuries now; the process is probably too far along to reverse. At best, we can hope to slow it down to give us more time to adapt to the coming changes. And, while human activity has contributed to it, climate change also occurs naturally. Some solar scientists predict that another "grand minimum" in the solar cycle is approaching, and could lead to 50 years of abnormally cold temperatures, similar to the mini ice age of the 17th century. This would not remove the effects of rising levels of greenhouse gases, but could disrupt some current climate trends.

No, climate change is not "working on being fixed." Although the world loves to blame the US, the reality is that the less-developed countries have NO interest in fighting climate change, as they have much more immediate problems in the areas of health, nutrition, and education. And all of the increase in greenhouse gas emissions is coming from the LDC's.

The likely consequences of the shortages and dislocations that will arise from climate change are war, famine and disease. In past millennia, humanity's increase in numbers has always been somewhat mitigated by war, famine, and disease. They are our best friends!! We will not become extinct if war, famine, and disease do their job to limit the numbers of people the globe must support.

Unfortunately the political will seems to be more focussed on coming up with reasons to do nothing.

Our efforts to contain the change is definitely successful. there is no way we'd get extinct due to climate change. It's for you to take the new ways, Alternate energy, Energy efficient buildings, Green environment, recycling goods, rainwater harvesting and so on.

Assuming the rate of change remains the same at least 80% - 90% will die within the next 100 years. Within the next 150 years 100% of human beings will be dead. Once the average temperature increases by 2C climate change is irreversible and the temperature will increase exponentially.

Human's had very little control over the climate of the planet. We do have some control over how much we pollute the planet. The biggest factor in the climate change of the planet is the sun.

Eternity

You are listening to the wrong people. The elite in the world who are pushing this crap WANT you being fearful. They WANT you to turn to government first to fix all of the problems in your life. This gives them power over you.

Climate change is constant throughout the history of the planet. The last glacial period on the planet ended about 11,500 years ago. The coldest extended period since that time was the Little Ice Age that lasted roughly 300 years from the 1500s to the 1800s. Just before that was the medieval warming period and in the last 150 or so years, things have been a little warmer.

This garbage you hear in the news about 'Warmest it's ever been!' is just that, garbage. No daily high and daily low records, in the way that we are used to seeing them, existed much before 150 years ago. So the people who are trying to scare you ignore what happened in the thousands and thousands and thousands of warming and cooling cycles the planet has seen going back millions of years.

Stop worrying about this. Enjoy life. Suffer like we all do those times, for short spells, when it's too hot or too cold. It's always been that way and it's always going to be that way. There WILL be another ice age on the planet, when glaciers begin to encroach. Maybe not the way they did the last time, when they reached their peak about 22,000 years ago, but the ice will come. And then it will retreat. All of us will be gone for thousands of years by then. There's nothing anybody can do to stop it, there's nothing anybody can do to slow it down, there's nothing anybody can do to speed it up.

So why are the elites lying to you? Whay are so many 'scientists' in on it?

The elites want power. If they can scare you into believing their lies, you'll go quietly when they control how you move about, how you are allowed to heat your home, what you may eat - because the way you do those things now are 'part of the problem' - cars, cow farts, etc.

Don't give them power. I'm not saying go out and live recklessly. Al Gore tried to get rich selling 'carbon credits' and used his hoax movie to push the concept. Al Gore is one of the biggest hypocrites in history. He talked about people needing to leave a smaller 'carbon footprint' while he was out flying hundreds of thousands of miles a year on jets.
