Soon breaching the 1.5C temperature threshold considered critical in global warming | The Guardian Opinion |

Keeping the global average temperature rise (since pre-industrial times) below 1.5C is widely regarded as critical if we are to sidestep dangerous, all-pervasive climate change.

This idea of a 1.5C temperature threshold is in the news again because just-published research has revealed that several catastrophic climate tipping points are in danger of being crossed at around this level of warming, including collapse of the Greenland and west Antarctic ice sheets, which would lock in about 12 metres of sea-level rise.

To have a fair chance of keeping this side of 1.5C, emissions have to fall by 45% in little more than 90 months, and I am on record as saying that this is practically impossible. But it's worse than that. It is perfectly feasible that we will crash through the 1.5C guardrail even earlier.

War as a distraction in a post-Brexit failing European Union ..

Global development is in "crisis," World Bank President David Malpass said, as the world tries to fend off multiple crises while still battling a two-and-a-half-year-old COVID-19 pandemic that continues to kill people and wreak havoc on the global economy.

The Euro should be rated at approx. $1.18 ... lost 20% in value as energy poverty takes hold, cost of living and high inflation as the Fed raises interest rates as speculators profit. #Soros #UK-£

In the meantime, winner Joe Biden still has no idea who the new British PM is... did the Brits have an election?
