thnks really show is good The majority of climate scientists agree and non climate scientists are perfectly capable of assessing the science their colleagues produce and formulating educated hard nosed fact based statements regarding the threats that face us. In some cases that is their science, their job. One such scientist is David M. Bushnell, Chief Scientist from NASA Langley Research Center, who stated we could see temperature increases of 12º to 14ºC by 2100 if the positive feedback loops currently kicking in, not included in the last IPCC reports, aren't brought to a halt. This would mean sea level rises of 75 to 80 meters by 2100 which would submerge the current living area of 2.4 billion people. He states that we need to replace 80% the fossil carbon based energy we use with algae, halophytes, and cyanobacteria sourced biofuels grown on unused land, he calls it deserts and wasteland, with sea water. This would need to be accompanied by massive increases in conservation and huge deployment of drill geothermal, wind and solar capacity.
Absolutely Breath taking! not just the boobs ;)
