Extremely well written and articulate. Your educational achievements shine through. Plus, you get it. You have an understanding of almost all of the variables in play.

Your numbers are a little off.

You are right, in that Ukraine is the start of WWIII. Here's why Putin invaded and how China is connected.

In Ukraine, we are be seeing the first war of the “Climate Crisis”.

Agricultural output failures of 40% have started happening. It's going to get worse.

Putin’s Strategy is coming into view. If you weren’t clear on it, World War III has started.

In this on I rehash your points and add this.

"Are you naïve enough to believe that Putin didn’t know this was going to happen when he invaded Ukraine? He’s counting on millions of starving climate refugees flooding into Europe. That’s part of his strategy.

Those starving people are Putin’s flank attack on Europe. That’s how ruthless Putin is.

No one can intervene in Ukraine, so as long as he wants to feed Russian troops into the meat grinder that war will grind on. He might not be able to “win” right now but he can prevent Ukraine from functioning as a country."

If you suggest that the war in Ukraine is related to Climate Change, people tell you Putin doesn’t care about “Climate Change”.

Earth Day - The State of Play of the Climate Crisis

The UN has confirmed that we are about to get a massive temperature spike - Now, the only question is “how hot is it going to get”?

I am forecasting 800m to 1.5 billion dead by 2027.

Here's the science part.

Heat doesn't "just happen" - Where it's coming from and why that matters.

Additional notes on Albedo diminishment. I'm being conservative when I tell you it's bad.

Consider the Earth's Oceans, that's where all the heat goes: Global Warming is Actually "Ocean Warming"

I know it's a lot to read and process. I'm sure you think I'm a crazy person.

At least consider this.

The first big "Climate Shock" is about to hit. In 12 to 18 months a perfect storm of warming will kick in that will last 3-5 years.

It's a 3 part storm:

1. Albedo diminishing has doubled the rate of warming in the last 7 years. It's simple, if the planetary albedo declines, the earth warms up.

Here's the bad news: the Earth's albedo has been declining during the last 20 years in response to the planetary warming.

2. The La Nina cycle we are in will flip into an El Nino.

3. Warming that was being masked by SOx emissions will rapidly take place due to the changes in diesel fuels in the shipping industry in 2020.

Cleaner Air in 2020: 0.5% sulfur cap for ships enters into force worldwide.

All of this will combine to push warming above 2C by 2026. The next 2-6 years are going to be insanely hot.

There is no going back, and we are about to have a "heatwave".

Forecasters say there's a 93 per cent chance that the five years from 2022 to 2026 will be the hottest on record.

When the IPCC says that there is a 50% chance the GMT will "temporarily" exceed 1.5℃ of warming by 2026, what exactly do they mean by that?

We are going to 2.0C by 2026.
