    climate crisis disrupting life for millions

    Extreme heat and rain here, drought there, swarms of locusts...you name it. **** is hitting the fan. And, there's even a new report out exploring it.

    The wide-ranging State of the Climate report outlines the latest science and includes data from a variety of disciplines in order to evaluate the current and future impacts of climate change on everything from heath and global economies to food insecurity and refugee displacements.

    Climate variability is one of the key contributors to this increase in global disruptions due to food insecurity, displacement, and deaths from disasters.

    But if you guys got your way and the policies you advocate were implemented the cost wouldn't just be disrupting the lives of millions but impoverishing potentially BILLIONS with your crack brained anti capitalist schemes to get back at those you envy

    I have a suspicion that summertime max temps have been cooler in more places
    than just the eastern United States.

    But there probably has been, see below:

    Weather conditions have to be right for the locusts to swarm, and it's probably
    not the "Hot & Dry" you people are always crying about.

    Normally these regions see some rain, locusts reproduce, the area dries out,
    and the locusts die. This year, though, there has been so much rain that hasn't
    happened yet. Breeding conditions are ideal for them and there has been no
    threatening weather to kill them. WDRB


    Now I don't know anything about WDRB but you will have to show that the locusts are swarming
    because of Global Warming/Climate Change/the Climate Crisis or whatever you people are calling
    it these days.

    Until you do that, your implication the locust swarms are due to an increase in atmospheric CO2
    paints you as full of ****

    I'm sure there is.

    Re: climate crisis disrupting life for millions

    It's a hard run, trying to convince certain types of people that Global Warming is happening and will get much worse. We have the typical deniers that seem to believe it's some kind of left-wing conspiracy to disrupt their lives. Then there are the types that just-won't-believe it..sort of like the "I can't hear youuuuuu"
    The worst ones, to this poster, are the ones that know it's probably true but (being sociopaths..or close to it), have the disgusting thought that: "What the F*** do I care?..I'll be dead long before the proverbial crap hits the fan"
    They're the worst of the bunch.
    I feel so much better now since I've completely given up all hope.

    Remember when climate alarmists told us global warming was going to kill the U.S. corn crop? Never mind.

    You may remember seeing scare stories like these in the media. Claim: Climate Change will Cause a Global Corn Crop Failure Global Warming Will Cut Crop Yields – Assuming No Adaption Reality bites in two ways; 1. Actual data shows yield increases, and 2. New study says warming has actually helped corn yields. Research links…

    It's always amazing to see know-nothings believe they know more than people who study this stuff for a living.

    Would you call the UN's Food and Agricultural Organization "know-nothings?"

    Yeah, those nasty none-believers keep demanding evidence and stuff. Even when you provide it they examine it skeptically and rip it to pieces or show that there is no significant trouble or whatever....
