  1. Thank you MSNBC for mainstreaming this report.

      omi god The UN is a totally corrupt organisation and is a front for the corporatist globalist establishment/cabal. You should read more so that you are not so naive about how ugly the world really is and so you are a little less ignorant

      Pawan Rai Hi M8. You seem to be very naive about the IPCC, the UN and the world in general. There are actually no world renowned scientists working for the IPCC. Every single one has resigned due to the IPCC’s blatant misrepresentation of science and climate data and because of scientific fraud. All of the scientists who have resigned over the years have published papers refuting the IPCC’s reports and the junk science behind the Co2 AGW theory. Climate science is junk science and has brought the entire scientific community into disrepute. Science is now viewed the same as the fake news outtlets

    • Hayu Wijayanti You are a perfect example of what watching fox news and Alex Jones can do to a person.

    • Hayu Wijayanti | August 10, 2019 at 6:49 AM | Reply

      Pawan Rai We dont get Fox News in my part of the world and labeling anyone who smashes you with facts about the Climate Marxist scam as an Alex Jones conspiracy nut just shows how pathetically void of even the basic fundamentals of climate science and data. You must be another Wu Mao low life China boy loser to be this dumb

    • Hayu Wijayanti you talking about science and facts is a lot like when trump says “I’m the least racist person ever”.
      You don’t know the first thing about climate science.

    • @Meg “Still time to react?” I admire your optimism, Meg, but considering that what’s being discussed IS real life, I’m more inclined to describe your outlook as being, dare I say it, somewhat cavalier. Combine this report with, for example, Trump’s latest catastrophic plan for the Alaskan salmon fisheries and his genius ideas for the EPA. The reaction time, once passed, will be gone forever. Trump’s understanding of, or respect for, our environment is shortening that time each day.

    • @Hayu Wijayanti This post makes absolutely no sense at all.

      @Meg Dr Rex Fleming has a PhD in Meteorology and spent years at NOAA, as he said involved with climate research from the beginning, and responsible for funding scientists who “pushed” the theory of man-made global warming. He’s written a book called The Rise and Fall of the Carbon Dioxide Theory of Climate Change (2019) and has just done a podcast with James Delingpole.

      When David Evans first spoke out as a skeptic we were contacted by someone inside NOAA who said there were many skeptics there, but none of them could speak. We know there are others out there, still silent.

    • @Rand Kocher Yeah ooh very scary. I wonder if he and health physic are the same.

  4. Finally an effect of climate change that might get Trump to be concerned. The one thing Tubby Trump loves is his food. Buckets of chicken have shared his bed more that Melania.

    • Sammy Bolo If you believe that lying, loudmouth, ignorant imbecile in the White House, then you‘ll believe ANYTHING! What a joke!

    • @S H,
      – You live in a fantasy bizarro World created by fake news
      – Everything the President has touched has improved.
      – And if he’s ultimately successful he may even fix Baltimore.

  5. If the global elite can scare the masses then they can control those masses!

    • @greg hill,
      – Because you responded without citing a single Presidential lie, I can only assume that your reality is based solely on emotions with no objectivity, truth or facts involved!

    • @Rand Kocher That Trump ever did anything at ground zero. Oh and has Trump been on the job yet because I still have to get a better ACA. Oh when is he going use government money to improve the nation’s roads?

    • @Rand Kocher Forgive me, Rand, but in reality, “my reality” doesn’t exist. Trump’s lies, however, do indeed exist, and have been extensively catalogued. Rather than sit back and expect the World to provide you with examples, you might wish to research them yourself, before dismissing them all as fake news. I’m happy to start you off, though. They cover various subjects. But you should know none of this gives me any pleasure, apart from the comical aspect. Feel free to study these ten examples…I promise you, there are literally thousands more:
      “Nobody knows more about the military than me”.
      “I’m the most popular President in history”. “No”.(In response to whether he authorised payment to pay off Ms Daniels from campaign funds. There’s a bonus criminal act in there for you).
      “I’ve got no problem showing my tax returns”.
      “Cohen wasn’t my ‘lawyer’…. he did very little work for me”.
      “Unfortunately, my taxes are being audited right now, so I can’t show them”. (They weren’t, but he still could have…and he still can)
      “Papadopoulos is a low level volunteer”.
      “I’m a genius, and I’m a very stable genius” (This gets a 50/50 on the lie/comedy score)
      “My parents were born in the European Union”. (Not only was this lie wrong on so many levels, you have to ask “Why did he even bother?)
      “I was down there with first responders”. (Probably the most despicable lie from Trump on 9/11, and in my opinion, the lowest point in American political history. If you only remember one lie out of all the rest, keep this one next to your heart.)
      God bless you, Rand.

    • @greg hill,
      Greg, listen, take a couple of tylenols and take a nap!
      I’m talking about Presidential lies of National interest to the American people! Like when Obama said on many occasions, “if you like your doctor…”, kind of lies. No one’s concerned in the least about President Trump’s salesmanship puffing, “That was the biggest or that was the greatest”, kind of stuff.
      – You also have to understand that the Nation is currently in a state of civil war since the Deep State, the Swamp has declared war on the President, in which case, President Trump has no choice but to give the enemy nothing that they can weaponized, because they absolutely will!

    • @David Drake,
      – If you’re hoping for an improved infrastructure, roads or other things, why aren’t you wondering what Obama did with the $9 trillion that he borrowed from taxpayers, doubling the National Debt, and apparently no one knows what he blew it on!
      – Outside of that I don’t have the slightest idea what you’re saying… “ground zero” or “better ACA”?

      Karlo- Although every one of the 31 government Climate Change computer models have been debunked & shown as highly systematically inaccurate due to being parameterized (fudging or tuning outcomes by scientists, not by actual science), except for the Russian model which estimates far lower temperature increases, Climate Alarmists still taut them as God’s Truth. The temperature of world has decreased and increased throughout the earths history. Even if the actual temperature is increasing there’s absolutely no way to determine man’s influence on it. Additionally, no scientists or governments have any idea how to actually either lower or raise the earth’s temperature by even 1 degree. Climate Change previously known as Global Warming, and prior to that Global Cooling is the biggest Power & Money Grab In the history of the world.

  7. Too bad that the only thing on the GOP platform at this point in time is: Punch down and pocket the proceeds.

  8. Buck the trend, don’t be a sheep, GO VEGAN!!!! 🌱 If this doesn’t make sense, look into how beef and dairy production harms the environment

    • what gonna happen when the whole foods aint gettin your shipments of rice, mushrooms, kale whatever..? gotta have a land not inundated by floods and ravaged by storms, fire, bee loss, etc. to keep the whole-foods full. SEE – that IS the problem. If the food delivery system fails, big cities gonna be hurting in a quick hurry.

    • Regenerative agriculture absolutely depends on farm animals. It is industrial scale feedlots that are the problem. And vegan is only good if EVERYTHING you eat is grown locally. If ANY of YOUR food comes from outside your county (or at a push, your state), then you are no better than the people who eat meat. Just think of how much carbon dioxide is generated to bring you your special vegan foods.

    • How about this, if we eat more beef there will be fewer cows and that will save the environment so we can raise more cows and eat more beef. Problem solved.

    • Volcanoes and democrats are the only thing harming the environment!

      Tessmage Tessera None of the worlds renowned scientists go anywhere near the junk CC science. 80% of all Physicists, Geologists, Engineers, Mathematicians and other core sciences, dont support the Co2 AGW theory. There has been over 500 peer reviewed science papers published against the CC junk science already this year. The reason the CC junk science/Marxist propaganda still exists is because ignoramuses like you are to stupid to know BS when they hear it or they are just plain lazy and never check the available data. There is an over production of food you poor fool

      And then what? Will your provisions last for the duration of your life, will they serve to your descendants? Do something useful: vote out the politicians paid by fossil fuel companies, recycle, use less your car, eat less red meat, plant a tree, use low consume electric appliances, go solar if you can, educate yourself on what else to do and teach others.

    When Al Gore’s movie first came out, reporters flew over his large CO2 emitting Colorado home and noticed he had no solar panels or wind turbine…So these reporters asked him why he wasn’t using any solar power….A few days later he rushed out paid someone to install a small solar system on his roof….Reporters later pointed out that his new small solar system was nowhere big enough to power his whole house.

    • Food Crisis
      There will be a world record grain harvest this year. If people are hungry it is due to political situations and despotic rulers. That is what the U.N. should be concentrating on not the “climate change” scam. They keep making these baseless scares so the funding keeps coming.

    • @Dorian Shades of gray
      Wrong, it is not. Greenland has lost permanent ice.

    • @Dorian Shades of gray while the artic has lost 895,000 square miles of ice since 1979. That is almost 25% of the land mass of the US. Just STFU if you have nothing intelligent to offer.

    • Did Greenland lost like a few million tons of ice this pass heatwave?

      Rand Kocher The core sciences like Physics, geology, Math and also engineering still have integrity because they can not as easily be faked. The math still needs to add up. But many other fields are just a joke. Some of these scientific fields include fringe climate sciences and social sciences. Here in Australia, our most highly esteemed Geo Physicist and the worlds leading expert on the Great Barrier Reef was fired a couple of years ago for daring to speak out about the junk research done on the reef. His name is Dr Peter Ridd. He took the University to court and won. Up for grabs was half a billion dollars of funding to save the Great Barrier Reef from CC. The 1/2 billion $ came about as a direct response to the fake scientific research being undertaken and published by the University. CC has become an enormous self serving research funding mechanism
