“This is more than just a temperature anomaly. It is an off-the-scale event. Why is the Arctic meltdown not headline news in every paper?” – George Monbiot
If someone said hey, your house is going to burn down, we don’t know if it’s in the next hour or next week, what would you do?

My first degree about 35 years ago was in earth sciences. And one of my lifelong passions has been reading the history, prehistory, and evolutionary history of humans. The timescales give me an appreciation of the farcical attempts of humans to stop crapping in our narrow evolutionary space over the last century. We’re going to live in a hot hot world we weren’t evolved for.

…the hot potato – stop dropping it. Maybe grow the fuck up and react intelligently to the blindingly obvious.

Like many people I’m always bemused by the lack of logic that the climate change deniers (CCD’s) have in their extremely selective picking of things to get wound up about – especially about climate models. But when an actual self-evident flaw shows up in the models, well they simply seem to miss it entirely. Like it is now evident that the climate models used to predict Arctic melting vastly underrate the speed at which it is happening. The consequences are going to be unpleasant for the north.
