A Christmas Present From The New York Times

Not that they really wanted to be so generous, mind you…but in the printed (IHT) version of this long article about the Keelings and CO2 concentration measurements, somebody at the NYT decided to include this graph:

And so millions around the world will be able to see that temperatures have gone up and down in the past 400,000 years, with a characteristic shape (sharp increase with an even more marked peak, slow decline, then sharp increase again) that is currently being replicated (and the top temperatures of the past haven’t been reached yet). The usual reply is that in the past it’s been changes in the Earth’s orbit what drove the temperature changes: and yet, even if CO2 is the “culprit” this time there is evidently something in the Earth’s climate that:

  • Keeps temperatures from going unimaginably high
  • Counteracts the warming, whatever the CO2 concentrations
  • Mantains temperatures on average as much colder than at present

In the medium and long run, humanity should be preparing for a cooler world. Preparation means of course adaptation, the one thing nobody wants to do.

“Preparation means of course adaptation, the one thing nobody wants to do.”

One doesn’t typically ‘prepare’ for adaptation, one simply adapts. Given the great progress man has made in his ability to adapt to his environment, I’d say it isn’t much to worry about. Even in the few short years it took to go from the MWP to the LIA, man didn’t just adapt, but thrived! The advancements we have now, no one would even notice, except a charlatan posing as a scientist.

suyts – I was trying to be a tad more practical. Adaptation means also buying enough equipment to deal with expected climate extremes, and making sure airports don’t shut down at the first sign of sleet…
