“world is on edge of climate abyss, UN warns”

Thirty-five years ago the United Nations said we only have ten years left to save the planet from global warming.  Now they say we are running out of time to save the planet from global warming.

“The world is on the verge of a climate abyss, the UN has warned, in response to a Guardian survey that found that hundreds of the world’s foremost climate experts expect global heating to soar past the international target of 1.5C.

A series of leading climate figures have reacted to the findings, saying the deep despair voiced by the scientists must be a renewed wake-up call for urgent and radical action to stop burning fossil fuels and save millions of lives and livelihoods. Some said the 1.5C target was hanging by a thread, but it was not yet inevitable that it would be passed, if an extraordinary change in the pace of climate action could be achieved.”

“June 29, 1989
UNITED NATIONS (AP) _ A senior U.N. environmental official says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000.

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.

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.”

    The UN and The Guardian are doing nothing but “Climate abyss holes”

    One would think that that there is a huuuuge difference between a climate abyss and temperatures passing an arbitrary limit of 1.5 degree warming,

    especially when the most productive event for life on earth(cambrian and avalon explosion ) happened when temperatures were 10 degrees warmer a co2 levels 10* + higher.
    Which means we are way below the optimum.
