Has anyone else noticed the change in the background noise of climate change chatter the past few weeks? The prevailing undertone that I've noticed over the past few months is that restricting the change in temperature to 2 degrees is no longer an option.
The past couple of weeks though, the narrative has changed. Now it's we have to prepare for a change of 4 degrees celsius. Which is going to require adaptation. Major adaption. And given the records of various governments around the world in tackling climate change so far, I don't have the same amount of faith that the world bank has in our worlds leadership.
4 degrees looks like its going to be pretty awful. Any thing over that, I'm seriously not looking forward to.
