Climate Change and Sea Level Rise: Beyond the Point of No Return Yet? Austin Sierra Club Climate Change Committee

By November 2, 2020July 1st, 2021Gigs and Presentations

This presentation looks at recent reporting on sea level riseĀ  from South Padre Island, and the poorly understood statement in popular press about climate change being beyond the point of no return, or already being irreversible. This concept is based on carbon budgets for emissions reductions scenarios where negative emissions are not considered. In other words, No!, we are not beyond the point of no return yet. But, we do need to remove a lot of accumulated CO2 from our sky in addition to decarbonizing our global culture. See the presentation here.
