Climate scientists screwed up. Predicting climate change is a tricky business, and as a result, there are many competing models that attempt to predict how global warming will impact our climate. When it comes to arctic sea ice, they were all wrong. Take a look at the graph here, showing actual arctic sea ice extent versus the various predictions. It turns out that the reality is far worse than any scientists were predicting, and this should scare you. These same models have been used to help convince people how we need to reduce CO2 emissions or face really bad consequences on a global scale…and yet…these models were too optimistic.
Think about that for a minute.
Scientists are even starting to call this a ‘planetary emergency‘. If you don’t know why you should care, then please, at least TRUST the scientists and experts in this field of study. The fact is, they know more than you do about this – and there’s no shame in that, it’s their job! Don’t listen to politicians and business experts who don’t understand climate change…either become an expert yourself, or defer to those who ARE experts. Just don’t let others interpret the results for you. Don’t let ME interpret the results for you – read for yourself what the scientists are saying and don’t let others influence you.
