Especially in this kind of weather where it's horrible to be stuck in a car and lovely to be on the bike.

I've not been convinced by the people who claim there will be a big shift in people's mindset after all this. Sure a few people will make some positive changes but the world is going straight back to the greedy selfish world it was.

I agree with you. A few weeks ago in the family insta it was all like 'shir all you need is home/family/good/food' and that is slowly turning back into 'wont it be great to go skiiing at M&S again'.

Would I be right in assuming that long before rising waters submerge us, Ireland is going to start having a gradually worse storm/hurricane season from August -> October as a result of a warmer Atlantic. Now that will be expensive.

Yep. until when there will be no Gulf Stream or wind Or weather again and it'll just be sun burning us all to death along with some nice famine

This shit is awfully complicated. Melting ice from Greenland might actually cool the northern Atlantic, and the fact that water is fresh probably will affect circulation which in turn affects the Gulf Stream. You'd have to go and look up the climate models to see what they think is most likely

At the current rate of carbon release,
The Gulf Stream stopping, is the most likely case. Most likely after we dead anyway

I see you've jumped into the we're all fucked anyway so there's no point doing anything about it form or denial.

But hasn't the latest modelling downgraded the worst case scenario? In really basic terms we're already at 1 degree above pre-industrial levels. But there's a huge difference between 2 and 3 degrees in terms of outcomes so we absolutely have to do everything possible to make sure that happens.

That's quite the assumption;
I recycle everyday.
Reuse all old plastic containers.
Try to avoid Buying new items that are packaged in plastic.
Cycle when I can.
Plan to install solar in my new house (whenever that will be)
Convert my car to electric when batteries are more affordable.

(I think the biggest Individual contribution to a greener plant is actually not having kids?)

But what good will all that do When industry won't change / change fast enough?

The government's 'no diesel or Petrol cars by 2030' is fucking laughable. We need action now.
How the fuck are we still able to buy new diesel passenger cars given what we know about their dangerous NOX emissions? Adblue and other additives do mostly fuck all, as VW have found out

I actually wouldn't agree with that one (biased I guess). But birth rates are already falling all across the Western world. Interesting piece on it here:
