"Beyond Catastrophic"

New Climate Risk Classification Created to Account for Potential 'Existential' Threats,


Model Analysis
"A new study evaluating models of future climate scenarios has led to the creation of the new risk categories “catastrophic” and “unknown” to characterize the range of threats posed by rapid global warming. Researchers propose that unknown risks imply existential threats to the survival of humanity."

2015 Paris Farce Accord
"...The risk assessment stems from the objective stated in the 2015 Paris Agreement ..."

How High?
"A temperature increase greater than 3°C (5.4°F) could lead to what the researchers term “catastrophic” effects, and an increase greater than 5°C (9°F) could lead to “unknown” consequences which they describe as beyond catastrophic including potentially existential threats."

Tipping Points
"Planetary warming between 3°C and 5°C could trigger what scientists term “tipping points” such as the collapse of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet and subsequent global sea-level rise, and the dieback of the Amazon rainforest. In human systems, catastrophic climate change is marked by deadly heat waves becoming commonplace, exposing over 7 billion people to heat related mortalities and famine becoming widespread. Furthermore, the changes will be too rapid for most to adapt to, particularly the less affluent."

Risk Abatement
"...what measures can be taken to slow the rate of global warming to avoid the worst consequences..."

"...all agree on the urgency of strong and decisive action to remove carbon from the economy.""



Massive Growth & Expanding Globalism
The scientists don't come close to addressing the real causes of our breakdowns, being the global ring of corporate political corruption that's driven the world's manufacturing to the filthy, environmentally unregulated, slave labor commie tyranny of China, & India too, while driving wildly irresponsible population growth everywhere, but especially to first world nations, where rising populations do the most damage.

Providing Cover
Those processes of irresponsible growth and offshoring are moving forward as quickly as our greedy corporate elite can push them forward, and, as scientists such as these provide them cover through fake accords like Paris.

Hey, I know How to Fix this Mess...

We humans are one of the existential threats to all life on this planet, including our own:

Support Tahoe to Whitney

The Tahoe to Whitney Trail Guide and Magazine are walked, written, funded, and supported by my efforts, with the help of kindred spirits and my sister.

We offer valuable Trail Guide, Skills, Weather, News and Analysis.

My goal is to get you out to see your natural and social potential. Help me keep this unique resource accessible and expanding towards its potential. We've a lot of miles to cover ahead...

If you feel these efforts are valuable, I'm cordially inviting you to support them, here:



I am currently working towards publishing the completed guide between Tahoe & Yosemite as an e-book, while converting this "blog" to a fine magazine format. You will like the results! Help Tahoe to Whitney reach its potential!
