If we don’t reverse the climate system’s growing energy imbalance it will soon drive us over the lethal fall into global mass extinction ALL the global climate indicators are at or near all-time records so extreme that by September last year staid climate professionals have called the readings “gobsmackingly bananas.” — a phrase that is …
Rev. 0 – 11/03/2024! 2023 set new planetary extremes as our activities force global temperatures ever higher on the way to mass extinction. 2024 looks even worse!

The climate emergency is an existential crisis for humans. Bill McKibben explains why the Press and politicians ignore the climate emergency even though we risk extinction by ignoring it.

Human activities are triggering self-reinforcing existential climate risks that are growing more lethal with time — our extinction is likely Over the last 200 years prodigious amounts of carbon-based fossil fuels (coal, oil, methane) have been burned to produce waste gases (mostly CO₂) and useful energy to drive the Industrial Revolution, our affluence, our toys, …

Politicians threatened by community-based independents warn of CHAOS, but these thinking independents have ideals rather than ideologies.

Looking towards Eucumbene Drive in Duffy, Canberra, January 2003.
Amongst many other growing perils resulting from global warming, as long as we allow our only Earth to go on warming urban firestorms will become more frequent, fiercer, and deadlier. Many of Australia's close packed and leafy suburbs would also be susceptible to this kind of urban firestorm.
