[Arinna] Are we currently seeing the first effects of global warming and if so, how bad is it expected to be?
[Michael_Entity] What has been termed Global Warming will have more benefits than expected. It is a healing that will create vitality for more than is understood now. It will also contribute to the exiting of several million in your species, but this will be more gradual than expected, mostly being a decreasing of births, rather than a mass of deaths.
As the population drops, as shifts in patterns of weather continue, as climates shift, as people move and animals and plants die or survive, the adjustment will end in healing. When the body gets a “fever,” it is as beneficial; so this will be. The effects of this appear to be more and more prevalent, yes, and the impact will be seen to be growing over the next 1500 years or so. This summer will have the potential to be quite a shock to many.
When you ask “how bad,” we assume you are speaking in terms of interruption of convenience to you as a human. In that case, there will be some very “bad” times. The extremes in weather being the most dangerous and frightening to those extant. The droughts of this year will be the most prevalent as far as we can see. This will impact food and water choices over the next few years drastically in the US and around the world. This, then, is the “bad” of this year, so far, that we see.
We remind you that these are projections, not predictions. We do not have the capability to predict in terms that are stable enough to use solidly.
