    I have been saying for years that the climate scientists collectively have been overly optimistic in their forecasts of climate change. Maybe this was intentional to allow the world to come to terms with the unfolding catastrophe, maybe it was well known by those (Governments) who decided not to act on climate change knowing full well that the horse had already bolted. ( eg. re: 1986 perma frost thaw)

    Maybe it was because they can't appreciate that the problem is indeed primarily a natural one but one that is unprecedented in the geological history of the planet. That blaming human causation provides some sort of panacea of comfort.

    "Yes we can fix this!" when knowing we could not.

    It could be argued that if indeed climate change can be put down to human causation then the predictions made by science would have been more accurate...but alas as usual and as expected reality proves otherwise.

    Even the 50 years or so remaining may be greatly optimistic as they have based their findings on their ignorance and denial of their own science.

    The mile high "tsunami" is heading our way and beggars the question, "What do we do?" and the only answer available is to learn how to surf and learn how to "surf" very quickly.

    Today 30th of September 2016 ( AU time) is a really sad milestone for the future of life as we know it on this planet.

    Im pretty sure we will have the technology by then to scrub the co2 out of the atmoshpere. For now the best thing anyone of us can do is take the steps to decrease own pollution to the enviroment. Example: supporting food companies, buying cars that dont spent so much fuel, recycling etc.
