All I want for Christmas is to have laid out for me clearly, with demonstrative scientific and economic evidence, what the most serious damages global warming has caused so far. I’d much appreciate the wrapping paper on the present not include a litany of “coulds,” “possiblys,” “mights,” “maybes,” etc.
As a reminder, over the course of the past 130 years, the planet has warmed 0.8 degrees Celsius with something on the order of half of that occurring before the Eisenhower Administration. Yes counterfactuals make this extremely hard to do, I get it.
My stocking will surely have only coal in it.
