GLOBAL EXTINCTION WITHIN 18 – 34 MONTHS
Tuesday, March 19, 2019
When taking the many feedbacks, tipping points and further warming elements more fully into account, the temperature could rise even more strongly than is pictured in the red trend in the image at the top and there could be an 18°C rise by the year 2026
In that graph at the top, the vertical axis is cut off at 5°C, since life on Earth will already have disappeared by then (see box on the right), but when looking at near-term human extinction, 3°C will likely suffice.
How soon could 3°C warming be reached? The image below looks at data over the past decade, and a fifth-order polynomial trend (red) shows how warming could cross 3°C as early as next year.
The truth…can you handle the truth?
Most likely not
