Andrew Yang Was Absolutely Right That It’s ‘Too Late’ Over Climate Change, NASA Scientist Says

Scientists at NASA have just backed Andrew Yang on his dark but realistic climate change response from the second Democratic debate weeks ago. 

Immediately after the debate political pundits criticized the presidential candidate for saying that people should start moving away from the coast since it will only get warmer in a few years no matter how well we do on curbing emissions.

“The important number in this is 15 percent of global emissions,” said Yang. “We like to act as if we’re 100 percent. Even if we were to curb our emissions dramatically, the Earth is going to get warmer. The last four years have been the four warmest years in history. We are too late. We are 10 years too late.”

10 Nature Attractions That We Will Lose Completely In Our Lifetime (Thanks To Global Warming)

While lots of natural tourist attractions are still magical to visit (for now), others are slowly but surely deteriorating due to climate change.

Some of the most gorgeous places in the world make a huge impact on visitors because of their natural beauty. Unfortunately, many of these wonders are looking a little different from their original majesty lately. Most of this is due to climate change. Colors are changing, temperatures and sea levels are rising, and the homes of many different animals are becoming no longer habitable.

Study finds 24% of West Antarctic ice is now unstable

In only 25 years, ocean melting has caused ice thinning to spread across West Antarctica so rapidly that a quarter of its glacier ice is now affected, according to a new study.

Warming climate threatens microbes in alpine streams

Changes to alpine streams fed by glaciers and snowfields due to a warming climate threaten to dramatically alter the types of bacteria and other microbes in those streams, according to new research. But streams that are fed by underground ice insulated by rock — called ‘icy seeps’ — offer some hope that the impact of climate change will be less severe in some areas.

How climate change could make your food less safe to eat

Changes to the world’s climate could mean more frequent outbreaks of food-borne illness, according to a recent reportfrom the Public Health Agency of Canada, and Canadians need to be ready to deal with the risks.

The report, published in April, found that food-borne disease “represents a significant climate change-related threat to public health.”
