I believe that man has influenced and perhaps magnified the otherwise natural fluctuations of the climates on earth.
As always, the "politics" of how, who and when these effects occur, will play out in our future, long after most of us are gone. The article is talking about climatic expectations for the years 2050 to 2200. In 2050, if I am alive, I will be 90 years old. Historically, I don't have that type of genetic longevity in my family...so, I wish you all the best.
The doomsday-Sayers will point to every record hot spell as proof of our eventual similarities to Venus, just like every climate change disbeliever will point to every record cold or snowy period as proof that we don't have anything to worry about and should just go about life as business as usual. Why is it always black or white? Mankind has always migrated to be in various locations to take advantage of available resources and environmental conditions.... It happens today, it happened yesterday, and we have every reason to expect it to happen tomorrow.
I get the feeling that far too many extremists on both sides, forget that humanity has always, adopted, adapted and compensated to the locations we inhabit.
I believe in the ingenuity of humanity, but sadly I have no faith in our politicians as leaders, if faced with an epic calamity of biblical proportions.
In the 1930's and 1940's, our politicians around the world had no problem turning a blind eye to the deaths of likely 50 to 75 million people in wars and diseases around the world... I doubt that twice those numbers today or tomorrow would turn their heads to worry about heat waves, cold waves, droughts, floods, storms, insects, rising sea levels, etc...
