IPCC – Carbon Dioxide concentrations highest in 2 mn years, Provoking ever more Extreme Weather

Scientists are cautious and usually avoid categorical statements. This year’s report says, “It is unequivocal that human influence has warmed the atmosphere, ocean and land.” You can say that again. I watch a lot of cable news for my sins and have been gobsmacked at how they are all ignoring how the coast of Turkey burned up recently and now Greece is on fire. Greece, the font of European civilization. I’ve been studying Greek for the past few years and before the pandemic went to Athens for a few weeks every summer. It was mostly very pleasant, though a week or so could be hot. This year, the wildfires are encroaching on the capital, and it is like 118 degrees F. (!!!) Even islands like Evia are in trouble. Mediterranean islands burning up.
