What Happens If The Earth Is 6-degree Celcius Warmer?

I was at a movie appreciation session
at Dharma Drum Singapore last Saturday.

They were screening this impressive
documentary on global warming,
"6 Degrees" by the National Geographic.

While most people would reckon that
this is an educational movie,
I looked at it from a slightly different perspective.

Actually, one could perceive the documentary
as an introduction to multiple levels of hell...

Not kidding!
The movie basically focuses on describing
the possible scenarios
when our Earth's temperature rises
1 degree, 2 degrees, 3 degress to 6 degrees.

With every degree higher in temperature,
the scenerios got more and more
unsightful, devasting and detrimental.

For every degree rises in temperature,
scientist predicted
more damages, more sufferings, more chaos
and more deaths.

That afternoon,
I could feel some audiences at the event
got uncomfortable watching the movie.
Simply, nobody would accept the accusation
that the hell-on-Earth to come,
is caused by our very own goodselves.

In the end of the movie,
the narrator made 2 very stern warnings:

1) With every degree higher,
the increase of temperature accelerates.

2) With every degree higher,
there is less likelihood of turning-back.

The message from the movie was clear:
Nobody should delay
the rescue of the Earth (and ourselves)
from the horrifying future to come.

Please act now to cut your carbon foodprint!
