"Rate of ice melt would increase exponentially.. we don't know how fast that is but we KNOW that it's going to be EXPONENTIAL..
👉🏽BECAUSE we HAVE from #PaleoClimate history, evidence of how FAST ice sheets melt"
Interview with Paul Beck
👉🏽"AND in particular during the Emian which was about 1C warmer👀 than the Holocene 👀..
👉🏽Sea levels SUDDENLY went up by a FEW METERS which IS a clear indication that the Western Antarctic ice sheets collapsed AND this occurred in LESS than a century 👀"
Many scientists don’t want to tell the truth about climate change. Here’s why
“Almost irrespective of our emissions choices in the near term, we will probably reach 1.5C in the first half of the next decade,” said Irish climate scientist Peter Thorne, one of the lead authors on the UN report.

Hydrogen '2x as powerful a greenhouse gas as thought before': UK govt study
Global Warming potential (GWP) of #hydrogen is between 6 & 16, 11 the ave — GWP of CO2 is 1. Previous 2001 study put GWP of hydrogen at 5.8 rechargenews.com/energy-transit…
“Any leakage of H2 will result in an indirect global warming, offsetting greenhouse gas emission reductions made as a result of a switch from fossil fuel to H2,”
"much smaller molecule than #methane.. much more easily leak from existing #naturalgas pipelines if used to carry H2"
