We must cut carbon emissions immediately. If we don't the next generations will face devastating sea level rise, twice what has been previously predicted.
Reporting on the new models, the Washington Post reports, "'Under the high emissions scenario, the 22nd century would be the century of hell,' Strauss said. 'There would really be an unthinkable level of sea rise. It would erase many major cities and some nations from the map … That century would become the century of exodus from the coast.'"
Researchers warned American Petroleum Institute in 1968 that the release of carbon dioxide from fossil fuels could lead to ‘worldwide environmental changes’
Last year, it was revealed that ExxonMobil, the world’s largest oil company, knew of climate change as early as 1981, only to spend millions of dollars over the following 27 years to promote climate denial.

Us radical lefty tree huggers have been saying for years that fracking is dangerous for the environment and human health. Now there's data that prove it.
"The body of evidence is growing that fracking is not only bad for the global climate, it is also dangerous for local communities.
"And affected communities are growing in number. A new report, released Thursday, details the sheer amount of water contamination, air pollution, climate impacts, and chemical use in fracking in the United States.
"'For the past decade, fracking has been a nightmare for our drinking water, our open spaces, and our climate,' Rachel Richardson, a co-author of the paper from Environment America, told ThinkProgress."
