The Future by 2047 Is Off The Charts

Updated on October 10, 2013

With all of the scientific evidence and reports that state that the global temperatures are rising faster than thought, it boggles one's mind to hear some that are in denial about it.

A new study, based on computer projections and weather observations declare a horrific warning that by 2047, most of the world will be hotter than hell or "off the charts". This report was based on 39 different computer models and looked at thousands of other data.

Now, before you just shake your head in disbelief, you do know that in 2005, the world as a whole had its hottest ever year and by 2047, every year will be a scorcher. This 2047 date is based on increasing emissions of greenhouse gases from coal burning, oil and natural gas without any reductions. If the world does get serious about and such burning and emissions are curbed, then the date is 2069.

The report is dire. The weather will be much hotter than even now in 2020 for Indonesia, Jamaica. Then, Singapore in 2028. Mexico City in 2031, Phoenix and Honolulu by 2043. The report cited that 59 cities will have a much hotter climate within 20 years! These cities include San Diego, Orlando, New York, Washington.

The report fails to say how much the temperature will change but the change will be noticeable and disruptive. Already, we have seen the ocean levels rise from the melting of the Arctic region and what projections state will have many coastal areas of the US under water. If places that are already warm during much of the year get even hotter, living there will be unbearable and the put a major strain on resources. Even places like Alaska this year have seen a warmer and dryer pattern than ever.

Many call this an anomaly in weather cycles and cite stats to support their argument, but I think enough reports have been created that should be listened to by the governments of the world. But, mankind is not going to change much. China's own coal burning is contributing massive amounts of gases daily and that pollution has been traced to the West Coast of the US.

The report is a doomsday scenario unless governments act now. There is no more time to wait or waste.

      It seems the world generally agrees that mankind is causing the problem but no one is really serious about stopping it because of so many other pressing problems. This is at the bottom of the to do list.

      Thank you for this information! It does appear that climate change is accelerating faster than previously presumed based on older models. My hope is this (somehow) science will once again inform government in the US (and globally) and that immediate actions will be taken to deal with this impending crisis.
