Earths vital signs have never been worse, scientists warn

“Unfortunately, time is up.”
That’s the bleak warning headlining a concerning new report where climate scientists conclude Earth’s vital signs are now worse than anything humans have seen.
The climate situation is now so bad that life on Earth is imperilled, the scientists said, pointing to 20 of 35 identified planetary vital signs that are teetering at record extremes.
Those red-lining vital signs meant “profoundly distressing scenes of suffering” will unfold on the planet’s population, the report published in Bioscience declared.
One of the paper’s lead scientists predicted “we’re on our way” to a world hallmarked by “unbearable heat and shortages of food and freshwater”.
“Life on planet Earth is under siege,” the report said, while presenting a range of climate and disaster data scientists said showed that “we are now in an uncharted territory”.
The report said for decades scientists had been warning of a future “marked by extreme climatic conditions” because of escalating global temperatures caused by human activities that release greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere.
“We are seeing the manifestation of those predictions as an alarming and unprecedented succession of climate records are broken, causing profoundly distressing scenes of suffering to unfold.
“We are entering an unfamiliar domain regarding our climate crisis, a situation no one has ever witnessed firsthand in the history of humanity.”
Data in the report illustrated how many climate records were broken by “enormous margins” in 2023, particularly ocean temperature and sea ice records, scientists said.
The report says Earth’s oceans “have been historically warm” in 2023.
In July, Earth recorded its highest average surface temperature ever; scientists said there was reason to believe it was the highest temperature in the last 100,000 years.
This year there have already been 38 days with global average temperatures more than 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, the report said, and an “extraordinary series” of climate-related records had been broken around the world.
The rapid pace of change had surprised scientists and caused concern about the approach of damaging tipping points “sooner than expected”, the report continued.
Despite what man has and is doing to the Earth, the Earth will not be destroyed because God is in Ultimate Control and He has a purpose yet to be established on this Earth. God will not allow man to destroy the earth. Revelation 11:17-16
17 Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. 18 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.
God’s Kingdom will be established on this Earth in perfect fulfilment of Bible Prophecy just as the days in which we are living with all their problems is fulfilling Bible Prophecy. The real question is: WILL YOU BE IN GOD’S KINGDOM or will you be a casualty of these end times.
