Simple, stark and to-the-point, Steven Salzberg’s article in Forbes Magazine addresses the recent Hothouse Earth Trajectory study presented by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
The PNAS study states the following: “…our analysis suggests that the Earth System may be approaching a planetary threshold that could lock in a continuing rapid pathway toward much hotter conditions—Hothouse Earth. This pathway would be propelled by strong, intrinsic, biogeophysical feedbacks difficult to influence by human actions, a pathway that could not be reversed, steered, or substantially slowed.”
Dr. Salzberg discusses the study in no uncertain terms; the likelihood of irreparable hothouse Earth trajectories, the states of current and future climate change, the possibilities, ramifications and consequences of unfettered business-as-usual.
Steven Salzberg is the Bloomberg Distinguished Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science, and Biostatistics at Johns Hopkins University
