Climate Change

We Are Counting Down To

A 2°C Global Warming Limit &

450 ppm of CO2 in the Atmosphere

The Effect

Last Update: 2017/04/14, Now with GHCN Version 3.3.0 and ERSST v4.
Temperature Relative to 1880-1920 based on GISTEMP Analysis
(mostly NOAA Data Sources, as described by Hansen, J., R. Ruedy, M. Sato, and K. Lo, 2010)


Carbon Dioxide ppm

At Today's Rate, 450 ppm will be reached by 2031
Sources: NOAA - Based on Annual Mean Data & Annual Mean Growth Rates at the Mauna Loa Observatory

More People = More Demand for Oil, Gas, Coal and Other Fuels


The Consequences of Inaction

< Impact of Sea Level Rise >

Severe Coastal Flooding Affecting Drinking Water & Farming
Submerged Coastal Cities
Contamination of Aquifers
Mass Migration of People
Social Instability & Conflicts.

< Impact of Ocean Warming & Acidification >

More Powerful Storms and Hurricanes
Massive Rainfall, i.e. Hurricanes Harvey & Irma
Death of Coral Around the World (Mass Die-Off, 90% by 2100)
Dissolving Shells in Shell-Forming Species
Tissue Damage & Necrosis in Fish Larvae & Damage to Internal Organs
The Decline of Fish Stocks Affecting a $100 Billion Annual Fishing Industry

< Other Potentially Disastrous Consequences >

Mega-Droughts lasting 20, 30, even 40 years
The loss of 50% of All Species as we enter the Sixth Mass Extinction.
Decreasing Surface Water Supply
Global Food Shortages, Then Famine
The release of CO2 & Methane from Permafrost Melting.
The Eventual Collapse of West & East Antarctica Ice Sheets, Increasing Sea Levels Beyond Current Estimates.
Greenland's Melting reaching a tipping point potentially Adding 7 meters to Sea Level Rise.
Irreversible Climate Changes Beyond Our Control

A Complete Ecosystem Collapse
