Psycho Holdren: Earth Could Be Reaching Global Warming ‘Tipping Point’ That Would Be Followed by a Dramatic Rise in Sea Level

We have now sunk to a depth at which restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men. -- George Orwell

The more they try to squeeze us with their ludicrous, meritless hysterics about the impending end of human civilization, the more public opinion slips through their fingers, as people walk out of their homes everyday and see that the Earth isn't that much different than it ever was at any point in their lives. There is nothing wrong with the planet, the sea levels are not going to rise, and the polar ice caps are growing at record levels. It's a hoax.

    John P. Holdren, director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and President Barack Obama’s top science adviser, told Congress last week that the Earth could be approaching a series of “tipping points” that could drastically alter the climate and Earth’s natural systems and cause the sea level to rise dramatically.

    “Climate scientists worry about ‘tipping points’ in the climate system, including ecosystems, meaning thresholds beyond which a small additional increase in average temperature or some associated climate variable results in major changes to the affected system,” Holdren told members of the House Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming.

    Holdren, who testified on the current state of climate science and submitted written testimony, presented the points of no return.

    “Examples of tipping points of eventual concern include the complete disappearance of Arctic sea ice in the summer, leading to drastic changes in ocean circulation and climate patterns across the whole Northern Hemisphere."

    Another possibility he laid out was that ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica would begin losing mass more rapidly “driving rates of sea-level increase that could reach 6 feet per century or more.”
