Dr. Andrew Glikson - The IPCC’S Final Warnings of Extreme Global Warming

How can mankind be so dumb? A few rich people have paid out millions to rubbish climate change science and largely succeeded. These problems could have been sorted out and the elites could have been making a fortune out of green technology, but they are lazy, it was easier for them to throw some money into climate change denial and then carryon pumping out the carbon.
The right have spent a ton of money since the New Deal to get people to distrust all government and all taxes, so now many people, who haven't got a clue about science, believe that 'climate change' it's just a hoax to raise taxes. 

Scientists of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) indicate that global temperature rise of 1.5°C above pre-industrial temperatures would constitute a threshold the planet cannot cross without suffering the worst effects of climate change. Yet according to the U.N. report, mean global land-sea temperatures have already risen above 1°C and the planet could pass the 1.5°C threshold as early as 2030 if greenhouse gas emissions continue at the current level and no effective COdown-draw measures takes place.
These projections underestimate what is happening in the atmosphere-ocean-land system since, due to amplifying feedbacks from desiccating land, warming oceans, melting ice, methane release and fires, no temperature limit can be specified for global warming. The Paris agreement, which focuses on limits to emissions, hardly acknowledges the essential need to down-draw atmospheric carbon which has already reached >450 ppm CO2 + Methane equivalent.
Climate science is a complex discipline, yet politicians, economists and journalists appear to believe they understand it, rushing to conclusions based on partial knowledge or ignorance. Lately government members have been referring to climate science as an “ideology”.  Looking at the plethora of misconceptions regarding the accelerating climate crisis in the atmosphere-ocean-land system, it is not clear where to start:
