    Let’s hope the U.S swings back to sanity in 2020 – it’s getting late as this interview reminds us, especially in Rhode Island among others.

    The ‘tipping point’ has arrived as temperatures rise in 70 US counties.

    “The “tipping point,” a 2 degrees Celsius of warming above pre-industrial levels that was forewarned in 2015, has arrived and hit the U.S. with extreme climate change, leaving 34 million people living in areas that are rapidly heating.

    The fastest state to experience such extreme warming is Alaska, a state where summer temperatures generally range from 55 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit, has seen a recent increase of heat waves and wildfires.

    Other areas of the Northeast, including New Jersey, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts and Rhode Island, who was the first state to pass the 2 degree Celsius, have also seen climes beyond normal.”

    BOOK RECOMMENDATION: The End of Ice (2019), by Dahr Jamail. Glacier-climbing nut and one-time war correspondent Dahr Jamail relates his personal experience of rapid shrinking of glaciers, along with interviews with alpine glacier researchers.

    An excerpt:

    “You can count on all alpine glaciers in the world to be gone by 2100,” Fagre says. “The bulk of the mountain glaciers contributing to sea level rise has already occurred. We are on the back side of the pulse because the remaining glaciers are so small they can’t contribute as much.”
