Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez might have been mistaken on we only have 12 years

We all remember Ms. Cortez and her little speach about the world will end in 12 years.

I guess she didn’t listen to the United Nations:

Coastal flooding and crop failures would create an exodus of ″eco- refugees,′ ′ threatening political chaos, said Noel Brown, director of the New York office of the U.N. Environment Program, or UNEP.

He said governments have a 10-year window of opportunity to solve the greenhouse effect before it goes beyond human control.

And what’s going to happen after that 10-year window?

As the warming melts polar icecaps, ocean levels will rise by up to three feet, enough to cover the Maldives and other flat island nations, Brown told The Associated Press in an interview on Wednesday.

Coastal regions will be inundated; one-sixth of Bangladesh could be flooded, displacing a fourth of its 90 million people. A fifth of Egypt’s arable land in the Nile Delta would be flooded, cutting off its food supply, according to a joint UNEP and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study.

The world is coming to an end. We MUST act now or these things will happen!

The most conservative scientific estimate that the Earth’s temperature will rise 1 to 7 degrees in the next 30 years, said Brown.

Doom and Gloom. Remember next 30 years the CONSERVATIVE estimate is 1 to 7 degree warming. That’s a HUGE span.

Ooooooooh wait a minute.

Hold the phone.

Get ready for this.

U.N. Predicts Disaster if Global Warming Not Checked

PETER JAMES SPIELMANNJune 29, 1989

That was 30 years ago that those predictions were made.

How can we NOW only have 12 years???

Have the oceans risen 3 feet?

Are we in starvation around the world?

Are the costal area’s inundated???

This shows how big of a hoax it all is.

30 years they’ve been saying this crap.

Nobody said all of the consequences were going to come overnight. What has been clear for awhile is that the planet is warming at a fairly rapid rate and the old, conservative power structure in place really has no desire to even address the problem because they are going to be rotting in the ground by the time the younger generations have to deal with the reality of the world they were left. But hey, what’s new? That is how they have rolled on pretty much every issue.

All the planets in the solar system are warming.

So a warming we will reach the tipping point in 10 years that was given 30 years ago was correct or wrong?

Millions of people are starving.

Millions have been starving for decades. Even before the 1989 warning from the UN.

Yes and climate change does effect wait for it the climate which causes food shortages.

now if you want to debate if mankind has an effect on the changing climate or not its fine but the climate is changing and that is having an effect on people.

Huh, a politician admitting they were wrong. How noble.

She should have doubled down, kept tweeting, then tried to be funny by adding a cat to the video.

If you believe CO2 is anything but plant food, Fracking has done more to lower the carbon foot print than all the subsidized wind and solar on earth.

Wind an solar are land pollution = blight!.. Not to mention useless. Neither are green when you consider the energy used to make manufacture and put them in place…

Around here window washers have added solar panel cleaning. They get all covered in dust during the summer. Making them even more useless.

The article I linked to was a call for man to stop putting to make sure the things they lusted didn’t happen. 30 years ago we had 10 years to stop.

Do you dispute t hats the premise of what the U.N. was trying to say?

She should’ve used a sharpie.

AOC is a fringe of the left. She’s often full of BS. She will not even be close to a presidential candidate. If she was I would probably vote Republican to keep her out.

Will you do the same against your sociopath in the White House?

The whole thing with tipping points is that you generally don’t know exactly when you reach them. Nobody knows with one hundred percent certainty what is going to happen if the planet continues to warm uncontrollably. We don’t fully know man’s role in changing this growing problem. What we do know is that if this trajectory isn’t changed our way of life will become seriously altered.

This right here should be the end of it.

We don’t KNOW mans effect on the natural warming of the plannet. I don’t deny the planet is warming. Hell past record shows regular warming and cooling cycles, and from those records we see the warming cycles have continually got warmer WITHOUT man around.

That’s why it’s a hoax (man is the cause of the increase).
That’s why it was wrong in 1989, and that’s why it’s wrong in 2019, and why it will be wrong is 2049.

Imagine how much cheaper the cleanup of the mess would have been if we started mitigation in the late 80’s

What clean up mess?

What are we spending money on to clean up?

It’s cool… we will likely be dead or near death when the worst effects start to happen.

I don’t think that the global drain on the GDP is going to happen until the latter half of the century.
