Climate Change For 2020

Closing Thought–02Jan20

There are a lot of things that will change in 2020….but the one thing that will stay constant is that the climate is changing and not for the better….but let’s look at a few predictions for 2020….

When it comes to climate change, did we accurately predict in 2000 what would be happening now? 

“What the models correctly told us 20 years ago is that if we continued to add fossil fuels at an increasing rate to the atmosphere, we’d see an increasing range of consequences, including a decline in Arctic sea ice, a rise in sea levels and shifts in precipitation patterns,” Weather Underground meteorologist Robert Henson told USA TODAY.

Overall, we’re running quite close to the projections made in 2000 for carbon dioxide concentration, global temperature and sea level, Henson said.

Here’s a look at climate change indicators for 2020:

  1. Too much rain here. Not enough rain in Australia.
    Something is going badly wrong.
    I have to selfishly confess that I am glad to be old.
    Best wishes, Pete.
