We are close to the edge. The ticking time bomb of Global Warming is getting close to zero and exploding in our face. Don’t believe me? You need to visit OneHundredMonths.org and listen to the tick yourself! Hurry! Based on the countdown on the web site, there are only 88 months left!

Or 84 months, if you look at the days or hours countdown timers. Someone should explain to them they lopped four months off from their countdown timer. But hey, what’s four months among friends? So by December (or September) 2016, the environmental ticking time bomb will explode, and at that point, it will be too late. If we don’t fix global warming by then, “we could be beyond the climate’s tipping point, the point of no return.” (cue the ominous music) The report linked from the site calculates that we may hit the equivalent of 400ppm CO2 by December 2016.

But OneHundredMonths.org isn’t the only place telling us that the clock is ticking. The Miami Herald quotes Noel Brown, the director of the New York office of the U.N. Environment Program, that we have only a 10-year window to fix global warming.

A senior U.N. environmental official says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed…. Coastal flooding and crop failures would create an exodus of “eco-refugees,” threatening political chaos, said Noel Brown, director of the New York office of the United Nations U.N. Environment Program, or UNEP.

Ten years. That’s all we have before entire nations are wiped off the face of the Earth. I hope you have good flood insurance. Have you considered moving to higher ground?

Oh, wait. Noel Brown issued that UNEP report in the summer of 1989.

Never mind.
