    Climatologists are no longer merely 95% in agreement on the basics of global warming. They have become outright SCARED of what their studies show them. The tone among climatologists is becoming one of debate between those who think we are in for a very rough time but can still mitigate it and those who think we are in for an even rougher time and may have missed our opportunity to mitigate it. THAT is the current debate: whether we can still save our civilization from almost devastating consequences.

    I know this because my wife is in the field and she tells me about the seminars and talks she hears.

    An off the record comment from a government rep when asked why NASA is putting more money into going to the moon than in studying earth climate: "Well we all want the moon mission because we have to get off this planet, right?"

    I increasingly feel that we are fucked and the only question is will the shit hit the fan in my lifetime, or my son's lifetime.
