The sentinel lighthouse warns mariners of rocky shores. Climate Sentinel News provides similar warnings to Australians threatened by the growing Climate Emergency.


Today’s Breakthrough Institute report shows we are tipping climate thresholds like dominoes as we slide down runaway warming’s road to Hell Featured Image: Cover picture from the emailed announcement received 17/05/2022 of Breakthrough Institute’s new publication “Climate Dominoes“, by David Spratt and Ian Dunlop. This report summarizes the vast array of evidence showing that the …

The event Queen Elizabeth’s funeral marks the end of an era. What era?… And, exactly what have we been celebrating?… Australia, and indeed, seemingly most the rest of the world has spent the last two weeks mourning the passing of a 97 year old lady on the other side of the globe with a panoply …

Tropical warming is cutting life-spans of Australian and other rainforest trees in half by robbing them of moisture they need for survival Featured Image: Alexander Schenkin, Author provided (from the article). / I’m fascinated by this pic. Each tree totally controls its air space with little or nothing left to waste (or share), leaving a …
Part 7 – concluding David Spratt’s guidebook to events along the road to Hothouse Hell: Have we triggered so many tipping points already that we are already at or past the point of no return? Clearly, we wont know if we have passed the point of no return until it is too late to do …
Part 6 of David Spratt’s guidebook to events along the road to Hothouse Hell: Burning Siberian tundra, taiga forests and peat soils are all contributing to thawing permafrost and pushing greenhouse gas emissions past an important tipping point Spratt focuses almost exclusively on the consequences of permafrost thawing without much consideration of the overall environment …

Aside from some flooding Australia has had it fairly easy compared to increasing frequency, extent, and severity of climate catastrophes in other parts of the world. Don’t let our cooler La Nina and Indian Ocean dipole conditions fool you. The rest of the world really suffering! Bill McKibben, is an American environmentalist, author, and journalist …

As long as our world continues to warm and there is till ice left perched on mountain sides catastrophic glacier collapses will probably grow in frequency Climate Sentinel News is still here, and I will begin posting more on our still catastrophically warming planet as I make more progress on my analysis of the Federal …
Our climate is heading towards Apocalypse. Four factors will probably end humanity if runaway global warming is not stopped by climate action Thanks to 100 years of extracting burning fossil fuels, the human population has expanded to exploit and control the resources of essentially the entire surface of our planet. We live on the surface …
The Australia Institute shows our puppet Emperor’s new clothes: carbon fraud and misdirection make his puppet masters even richer In the previous article I posted today, I showed how our current LNP COALition government’s cash splash on cosmetic repairs to the Great Barrier Reef was probably intended to distract people from the fact that they …

The UN’s World Meteorological Organization warns us that we have done nothing to slow the global warming caused by our carbon emissions. Geneva, 13 September 2022 (WMO) – Climate science is clear: we are heading in the wrong direction, according to a new multi-agency report coordinated by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), which highlights the …
A rising tsunami of teal independents is transforming our democracy representing special interests to a participatory democracy of community representatives As noted in my many posts to Climate Sentinel News, it is becoming increasingly evident that humanity on our only planet faces near term extinction if we don’t manage to stop and reverse the global …

This is the recipe for extinction when facing existential catastrophe. A lesson on the difference between thinking and believing We humans face a very real risk of runaway global warming that we have triggered by burning fossil carbon accumulated over millions of years in around 150 years. We have already passed the trigger points where …

Most media concluded that emissions could go on rising until 2025 and the world could still stay under 1.5C. A potentially lethal error. Editor’s note: Based on my rigorous evaluation of the IPCC’s scientific methodology and writing processes, even the corrected understanding of the IPCC report STILL UNDERSTATES the likelihood of the risk from, and …
Part III of the IPCC’s 6th Assessment published late on 4 April says net zero alone won’t stop global warming. Carbon capture is also needed. According to the Third Part of the IPCC’s 6th Assessment Report published this week, our last chances to stop and reverse the still accelerating global warming are running out of …
We need to treat the climate emergency as a global war we are on track to lose unless we can focus our efforts on the only task that matters – reversing global warming. If we fail here no other tasks matter — our species risks extinction no matter how we arrange the deck chairs on …

The world’s oceans offer important and effective natural means to capture carbon from the atmosphere and sequester it in the ocean depths There is significant evidence that the rate of global warming is already showing signs that it is at least partially being driven upward by positive feedbacks from temperature sensitive natural sources of carbon …
