We have blown way past the climate tipping point!

For some reason this is never reported in the popular media, anywhere: We have blown Way Past the climate tipping point! The proof of this follows:

The Climactic Tipping Point we passed it 5 years ago! More Proof: Tipping Point excursions . Here's an example of counter-spin Smithsonian says . This just in: NOAA declares 2012 hottest year ever! Nasa says: NASA .

The worldwide forests are dying. unbelievably severe loss of ice sheets and glaciers in most of the globe. Decrease in thermohaline circulation currents: when the Gulf Stream, discovered by Benjamin Franklin, shuts down, North america and Europe are expected to enter an ice age, ten deg F cooler. The first giant flooding of Staten Island. Why isn't the fact that we have blown incredibly way past the global carbon dioxide climactic tipping point reported to you?

THE powers that be don't want you to know! What can WE do to spread the word? The U.S. is the worst offender, responsible for 25% of the total global energy use and CO2 output! The US and China refuse to enter into any protocols or environmental treaties. What we do here is to encourage the citizens to not use energy at home, meanwhile the US gov't, infrastructure, manufacturing, and transportation system wastes massive amounts on things that you already know about. The press( I meant to say the Fourth Estate) doesn't want you to know either, to discourage potential apocalyptic rioting. This is not being political, rather, factual. By the way, it is forecast to be 60 degrees F in SE Pennsylvania this weekend, in January! Let's count the degree days and make an article out of that, like others do!

What can we do as energy professionals, other that what I suggested above? I don't have all of the answers. It's obviously no longer necessary to encourage home or business energy saving or lower CO2 output! Or is it? Is anyone out there listening or paying attention? We will only save money in the very long term by saving energy, Maybe. We are headed to 500ppm CO2 in the atmosphere, with unknown catastrophic effects. Maybe now is the best time to acquire that black Escalade you always desired. Does CO2 output even matter when we're way past the tipping point? Why bother? Here's an idea: why not pass a global law that all CO2 output must be dyed red? Maybe they'd see it then! Tom DelConte, AEE
