"Persian Gulf may be too hot for human survival by 2090...A study predicting deadly heat waves in the Persian Gulf by the century’s end has underscored concerns about the effects of rising global temperatures on cities in other parts of the world, including the United States.
Monday’s report in the journal Nature Climate Change warned that Persian Gulf cities could experience extreme summer temperatures that are literally too hot for human survival."
I heard about this a few weeks ago, and I have been thinking about what it means, and not just to the United States. Here's a map of the Middle East, showing the area that might be rendered uninhabitable if these predictions are correct- and let's remember that scientific predictions about global warming have almost always proven to be too optimistic:
So, two or three million refugees are destabilizing the Middle East and Europe. Imagine if all of these people are driven out of their homes. This would be a catastrophe unprecedented in the history of the human race. It would sweep away a large part of civilization in the Middle East, Europe and Africa, and utterly destroy the economic structure of the world. It would make the World Wars look minor by comparison.
This is the fate that the corrupt leaders who deny the reality of climate change are bringing to their grandchildren. So far, no one has found a way to stop their treason against the entire human race. And the world center of this evil is right here in the United States, in the Republican party. When, I wonder, does their betrayal become so great that we sweep them into oblivion? Or do we just agree to send our descendants to hell, so a few politicians can rake in their share of the energy companies' wealth?
