Avons nous atteint le point de non retour en changements climatiques? Plusieurs disent que oui. Nous sommes aujourd’hui au delà des scénarios pessimistes d’il y a 5 ans.

We have failed to meet nature’s deadline. In the next few years, this world will experience progressively more ominous and destabilizing changes. These will happen either incrementally — or in sudden, abrupt jumps.
Under either scenario, it seems inevitable that we will soon be confronted by water shortages, crop failures, increasing damages from extreme weather events, collapsing infrastructures, and, potentially, breakdowns in the democratic process itself.
