The seas levels are rising, the plains will turn to deserts, polar icecaps will melt, snow will become an historic artifact, food production will collapse in the heat …

What other dire prediction is coming from the global-warming supporters?

How about one that the “depletion of atmospheric oxygen on global scale (which, if happens, obviously can kill most of life on Earth).”

That comes from a new study titled, “Mathematical Modelling of Plankton – Oxygen Dynamics Under the Climate Change.”

The study information is accessible online for a fee, and the abstract explains, “Ocean dynamics [are] known to have a strong effect on the global climate change and on the composition of the atmosphere. In particular, it is estimated that about 70 percent of the atmospheric oxygen is produced in the oceans due to the photosynthetic activity of phytoplankton.

“However, the rate of oxygen production depends on water temperature and hence can be affected by the global warming. In this paper, we address this issue theoretically by considering a model of a coupled plankton-oxygen dynamics where the rate of oxygen production slowly changes with time to account for the ocean warming,” the report said.

“We show that a sustainable oxygen production is only possible in an intermediate range of the production rate. If, in the course of time, the oxygen production rate becomes too low or too high, the system’s dynamics changes abruptly, resulting in the oxygen depletion and plankton extinction. Our results indicate that the depletion of atmospheric oxygen on global scale (which, if happens, obviously can kill most of life on Earth) is another possible catastrophic consequence of the global warming, a global ecological disaster that has been overlooked.”

At Yahoo News, Taylor Hill explained, “As representatives from 195 nations gather in Paris to hammer out a global agreement to slash greenhouse gas emissions, a new study finds that the failure to do so could leave the world gasping for breath.”

He wrote, “For the study, Sergei Petrovskii, an applied mathematics professor at the University of Leicester in the United Kingdom, calculated how unrestrained global warming could affect phytoplankton and thus the ocean’s ability to generate breathable air. He ran computer models that looked at what would happen to phytoplankton’s ability to photosynthesize at different temperatures.”

The report said if the world’s oceans get 6 degrees Celsius hotter – what it called “a realistic possibility if global emissions continue unabated” – oxygen production would be halted.

The drop would mean that at sea level the oxygen levels would be what there is now at the top of Mount Everest.

“And as far as I know, people cannot normally stay on Everest without oxygen masks for more than a few minutes,” Petrovskii said in the report.

He continued, Yahoo reported, “A distinct feature of this catastrophe is that there will be few warning signs and little change before it is too late. That’s because phytoplankton can continue to produce oxygen and photosynthesize at levels below 6 degrees of temperature rise.”

WND reported just days ago that a leading U.S. skeptic says a suggested international global warming plan discussed by nearly 200 international leaders in Paris recently would trigger much higher energy costs and lead to thousands of deaths without actually changing the climate at all.

Competitive Enterprise Institute Senior Fellow Christopher C. Horner has tangled frequently with the Obama administration over his efforts to track down energy and environmental policy documents through Freedom of Information Act requests. Horner is also author of “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming” and “Power Grab: How Obama’s Green Policies Will Steal Your Freedom and Bankrupt America.”

Horner said the agreement is largely a done deal but a few, critical issues remain. He said the less that’s accomplished, the better.

“It all comes down to what an email I obtained through litigation with the State Department, reported by the Washington Times … showed,” Horner said.

“The White House emailed at midnight with their climate negotiator saying the U.N. General Assembly president was just asked by Sen. (Ed) Markey (D-Mass.), ‘What do we have to do to get a climate treaty?’ He said one word, ‘Money.’ That’s what it’s about,” Horner explained.

One of the things a lot of that money would be used for is a U.N.-based climate court.

“They’ve actually added a court into the draft now, called the International Climate Justice Tribunal, to threaten us, so that they’ll say, ‘Think of the uncertainty, how you would have to pay for every weather event that occurs everywhere in the world,” Horner said. “You’re agreeing in this document that you caused it.'”

He said the U.N. would then demand immense amounts of money from the U.S. on an annual basis.

Listen to the WND/Radio America interview with Christopher C. Horner:

Horner also said the death toll caused by skyrocketing energy prices is alarming.

“Now they expect 40,000 excess winter deaths just in England and Wales, excess. And they had expected maybe 2,000 before these policies came into effect. Then it spiked, and they say half of these are people dying of hypothermia in their apartments. You’re killing people for no impact on climate,” Horner said.

Also, President Barack Obama recently fired back at Republican frontrunner Donald Trump for his blast at Obama’s claim that global warming was one of the greatest threats to the United States.

Obama smirked when “CBS This Morning” co-host Norah O’Donnell reminded Obama Trump was the Republican frontrunner.

And Obama laughed when O’Donnell told him about Trump’s declaration that Obama had made “one of the dumbest statements I’ve ever heard in politics.”

Obama replied, “Well, you know, Mr. Trump should run back a tape recorder on some of the stuff he’s said,” and he and O’Donnell chortled.

In his 2015 State of the Union speech, President Obama stated, “Today, there is no greater threat to our planet than climate change.”

Following the terrorist attacks in Paris, Obama suggested the climate change meeting to be held in the city would somehow serve as a rebuke to the Islamic State.

Earlier, the President Obama also stated climate change was “akin to the problem of terrorism and ISIL.”

Such comments led conservative radio host Glenn Beck to strongly criticize, exclaiming, “Mr. President, I say this with as much respect as you deserve, screw global warming! What the hell is wrong with you?”

“If you actually believe that global warming is the biggest problem we face with terror all around the world, an $18 trillion dollar debt – nine of which is yours – no real allies left that trust us, riots in the streets, riots in our university campuses, race relations worse than I’ve seen since the 1960s, and a distrust of our fellow Americans unlike anything I have ever seen, you, sir, are either delusional or you’re the dumbest son of a b—- on the planet. Which is it?”

During his interview on CBS, Obama claimed: “Ninety-nine-point-five percent of scientists in the world say this is a really urgent problem. The only people who are still disputing it are either some Republicans in Congress or folks on the campaign trail.”

Yet in light of recent scandals over the validity of climate data, the president’s confidence in the science could be misplaced. As revealed in Sen. Jim Inhofe’s “The Greatest Hoax: How The Global Warming Conspiracy Threatens Your Future,” the “Climategate” scandal showed the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) may have been manipulating data and was putting a political agenda above scientific objectivity.

Recent data even revealed the arctic ice cap is actually growing, not shrinking, defying the predictions of climate change activists like former Vice President Al Gore. Expert observations in early 2015 also showed official temperature records cited to prove the existence of global warming had been systematically adjusted to falsely present the Earth as having “warmed” far more than the data showed.

This led a writer at the United Kingdom’s Telegraph to call the manipulation of climate data “one of the greatest scientific scandals of all time.”

Not surprisingly, the public seems to be tuning out warnings of apocalyptic doom. A recent poll from Fox showed only three percent of Americans thought “climate change” was the most important issue facing the country. Another poll taken in mid-October showed fewer than one in four Americans were extremely or very worried about climate change and only 36 percent saw climate change as a moral issue.

Nonetheless, don’t expect the climate-change movement to go away anytime soon. Brian Sussman, a talk-show host, former meteorologist and author of “Climategate” and “Eco-Tyranny” predicts environmentalists will simply double down on their claims. After all, he says, “climate change” has become a big business.

“I don’t see the climate change industry backing down because there is too much money to be made and too much power to be acquired,” Sussman told WND. “Again, the goal for some is to make loads of money, and for others to use ‘sustainable development’ as the key to pushing for global socialism and communism.”

Sussman accused the mainstream media of “carrying the torch for the climate agenda” and alleged the recent summit in Paris was dominated by this cynical agenda.
