Big Climate News
We are in 2021. For over a decades the world of science has been i9n agreement that global emissions must be declining rapidly by 2020. Emissions did decline early early in 2020 due to the inactivity of the global economy of the Covid-19 lock down. It did last long. Governments poured money into the failing fuel industry and now global emissions are back up where they were in 2019.
At the same from 2020 the climate change published research has increased markedly in volume and severity of findings and forecasts. Today all of humanity is in a situation of unprecedented evil.
It is a great deal of big but bad news from the climate science front. The news is terrible, tough to take in, but it must be told.
