More livestock, more carbon dioxide, less ice: the world’s climate change progress since 2019 is (mostly) bad news

Back in 2019, more than 11,000 scientists declared a global climate emergency. They established a comprehensive set of vital signs that impact or reflect the planet’s health, such as forest loss, fossil fuel subsidies, glacier thickness, ocean acidity and surface temperature. In a new paper published today, we show how these vital signs have changed since the original publication, including through the COVID-19 pandemic. In general, while we’ve seen lots of positive talk and commitments from some governments, our vital signs are mostly not trending in the right direction.

  1. With present technology all machinery ir other devices that produce electricity require fossil fuels to be made and used. Light bulbs, heaters, furnaces, air conditioners, trains, train tracts, planes, ships and vehicles require fossil fuels to be made transported and maintained. Life with fossil fuels means life without all those things’ that we think we cannot live without. Humans lived without those things for a hundred million tears or so. We can, and likely will be forced to live that way again. Back to 1000 ce. Farming. hunting, gathering snd fishing. People were nor unhappy during those years. Our descendants will be fine
