yes, climate change is a fact

Because the area is reverting back to it's normal fluctuations of droughts / mega droughts.

Man thought he could control the desert. (like everything else)

The MAIN DIFFERENCE THIS TIME, is that the climate change is being caused largely due to man’s burning of fossil fuels.  Not Rocket Science, but science denyers, especially those  from areas that refuse to stop mining or drilling fossil fuels, deny the science here!!

Climate engineering research is essential to a just transition and sustainable future -

"..............Keeping fossil fuels in the ground instead of burning them will prevent climate change from getting worse. Reversing climate change requires removing greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. Any honest framing of climate engineering needs to start with these physical science-based facts. However, a rapid transition to non-fossil fuel sources is unlikely to keep the world below the temperature targets negotiated under the Paris Agreement. A global temperature increase of 1.5 degrees Celsius could easily be reached by 2035, and serious, damaging climate change is already occurring prior to that threshold.

Some sectors, such as transportation, are difficult to decarbonize. In some cases, especially in developing countries, reliable, cheap electric power is more effective at preserving equity than green economy investments.

This already “baked in” warming increases risks. Glaciers are retreating, and with them, regular water supply for billions of people. Extinctions have been directly tied to climate change. Global agricultural productivity has slowed. The Antarctic ice sheet may be irreversibly collapsing, and the oceanic “conveyor belt” is slowing down.

These are not “punishments” by Mother Earth for our collective misbehavior, as some have framed them. They are the consequences of past and present political decisions, blended with misinformation campaigns and both corporate and governmental delays, which prevented the world from steering away from fossil fuels decades ago. The worst of these consequences are being felt by poorer, developing countries.....

 

To start, we need to change the way climate engineering is often talked about: It is not a “solution” to climate change, a Plan B (a false dichotomy — should it only be used if mitigation fails?), nor a panic button in case of climate emergency. It is a possible tool to reduce suffering, particularly in the developing world. This tool needs evaluation. It does not “buy time” for an energy transition: the transition has to start now, regardless of whether climate engineering is used.

No one thinks that climate engineering is an easy fix. It should be envisioned as a supreme assumption of responsibility: If climate change is indeed an existential crisis, then no option should be left off the table, and the benefits and risks of all possible methods of addressing climate change need to be understood.

Our hope is that society collectively realizes that moving as fast as possible toward reducing climate change is our best chance of preserving a liveable planet.......

UN climate reports undergo multiple revisions, but the language cited in this draft version is just so stark and terrifying. For example: "Life on Earth can recover from a drastic climate shift by evolving into new species and creating new ecosystems. Humans cannot." via @AFP

why should I believe a buncha leftist climate change alarmists when they have yet to inject an experimental growth nutrient into the pituatary gland of some lucky nubile hod die and turn her into a man-grabbing 50 foot woman?

she can then pick-up any man who disagrees on climate change.

Deadly once in 10,000-year heat dome cripples Pacific Northwest: 230 die in Canada, 220K face blackouts in Oregon and Washington and devastating wildfire rips through northern California as mercury hits 121F

Historic heat wave cripples the Pacific Northwest as more than 230 people die in four days

A historic heat wave continues to cripple the Pacific Northwest as more than 230 people died in four days in Canada and 220,000 people face blackouts in Oregon and Washington as temperatures surpass 121 degrees. Firefighters in Northern California were also working to battle a lightening-caused 'Lava Fire' - the smoke from which could help lower the heat in the region, the Washington Post reported. Officials said a dozen deaths in Washington and Oregon may be tied to the intense heat that began late last week. The rest of the United States is also facing unprecedented heat waves, with record temperatures recorded in New England.

So who's fault was it a heat dome appeared 10,000 years ago, the people of Bedrock?

Odd such an event occurred when North America was covered by FAR more ice at the end of the last glacial period. Contradictory this 1 in a 10,000 year heat dome last occurred when the Earth was much cooler.

It was a figure of speech by a Rupert Murdoch rag if you must know.  But just wait until this once in 10,000 year event happens next year, and the year after that.

History will prove you totally wrong.  But unfortunately you'll be long dead.

You never read that Atlantic article on climate change throughout Earth's history, did you Mr. Science.

Bigger buzzards would evolve due to plentiful larger carcasses.  The ice ages had them, due to the megafauna common throughout the world.  Condors are remnants of these.  

Since chickens and turkeys do not eat carrion, there is no reason to think they would similarly be affected.  Come on, I thought you believed I and understood science.

Reservoirs are drying up as consequences of the Western drought worsen

Over the last 20 years, human-caused warming has intensified what would have been an ordinary dry period in the Southwest into a potential “megadrought” — in some ways the driest such period in 1,200 years.

Geeze a paved over city with  no where for water to go, what possibly  could  go wrong.?  Hurricane Sandy THAT distant memory, subways are already up and running!

Now 40 MPH  tropical storms are  called mega disasters
