This has to be a perfect example of the hellish world we're about to enter. We're casually suggesting that a developed nation should be economically punished because they're running out of water.
capitalism's response to climate change crisis is.... punitive
And this is a state that capital has an amicable relationship with. Lesser nations are going to be ignored, deserted, and isolated without second thought.
Arctic temperatures soar 45 degrees above normal, flooded by extremely mild air on all sides
While the Eastern United States simmered in some of its warmest February weather ever recorded Tuesday and Wednesday, the Arctic is also stewing in temperatures more than 45 degrees above normal. This latest huge temperature spike in the Arctic is another striking indicator of its rapidly transforming climate.
On Monday and Tuesday, the northernmost weather station in the world, Cape Morris Jesup at the northern tip of Greenland, experienced more than 24 hours of temperatures above freezing according to the Danish Meteorological Institute.
“How weird is that?” tweeted Robert Rohde, a physicist and lead scientist at Berkeley Earth, a non-profit organization that conducts analyses of the Earth’s temperature. “Well it’s Arctic winter. The sun set in October and won’t be seen again until March. Perpetual night, but still above freezing.”
short version: we fed a wild animal a "compressed biscuit" for decades that slowly turned its heart into shoe leather
a behavior called regurgitation and re-ingestion, in which animals intentionally bring up their food and eat it a second time. The behavior has never been recorded in wild gorillas, but it’s well documented in humans with developmental disorders—and in some two-thirds of captive gorillas.

so on a whim i did a simple whois search and insideclimatenews.org lists registrant organisation as "lost light projects" and then obviously just a simple google will show you thats part of the rockafell brothers fund, so yeah, why isnt that news, can i get some journalists here please
oss of 15% of arable land translates to 15% loss in the human population
if you take your third-worldism seriously, the white-caused loss of 15% of arable land translates to 15% loss in the human population, all else equal
who put the carbon in the air, which nations aren't lifting a smooth white finger to fix it, which nations stand to go hungry, which nations will feast? next market crisis, they'll keynes up a few more wind turbines and quickly-shuttered solar panel plants, to make it look right, like they did last time. but the plan's to stay the course. we communists should take their plan seriously

ok, but i still don't understand how you got 'loss of 15% of arable land translates to 15% loss in the human population' from that graph.
'all else equal' is doing the heavy lifting but a given area of land can produce only so much food energy, so if due to rain shifts or temp shifts it can no longer grow food period, or as much, then people born in one climate regime could starve in another. i think the climate death estimates are massaged, and assume high tech progress, and not things like, nitrogen fertilizers salting the topsoil, or pesticide buildup, so to keep it real simple, 15=15 assumes the land makes food by the acre. i appreciate ppl cutting me slack after posting belligerently, it's possible i'm an idiot tho
