We'll probably find out eventually.

We will definitely find out on January 1, 2101.

Arctic sea ice / Re: 2019 sea ice area and extent data

Article on shrinking arctic sea ice:
https://news.mongabay.com/2019/06/arctic-sea-ice-extent-just-hit-a-record-low-for-early-june-worse-may-come/
and BTW, my thinking is that we don't need a BOE to start having a catastrophe. If it goes down to twice the limit for a BOE, we will still have disastrous weather...probably almost as bad as a BOE, since a large majority of the Arctic Ocean would still be ice free.

I think so too, SteveMDFP, but what I am afraid of is week after week of 800 Americans killed by cars and no reporting, and one American killed by a robocar and "WE INTERRUPT THIS PROGRAM - A ROBOCAR KILLED A MOTHER OF THREE IN DES MOINES".

Well, both parties just agreed that Earth is warming and it's our fault:https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-06-11/new-bipartisan-agreement-on-climate-change-only-goes-so-far

This sounds stupid, but it might be smart..
Is warning of climate disaster counterproductive?

The Holocene extinction thread would have worked?

I wanted people following the plants thread to know what is happening.
