We had a couple ice storms in Cincy, it shut that city down also, though the wide use of salt is effective eventually.

I remember getting my car sideways in the driveway, a car with AWD.  I got out and nearly fell down.  Ice storms are awful, down here you just have to wait for the T to rise and sun to come out, and hope he pines haven't all snapped.

when we have ice storms in Houston (which has happened maybe twice in the last 40 years) you just dont drive

period

folks are really crazy here and dont know how to drive in those conditions

In a bad ice storm, no one can drive.  AWD, 4WD, anything short of studs and you can't drive, you can't even walk.

So, if it is true that if every country meets their commitments, we'll stay around 2°C of warming, what are the odds every significant country meets those commitments?

Assume for the moment the above is true.  How are "we" doing?

"We'd" have to level off NOW and start declining around 2035 or so, rather steeply.

I remember a few years back horrible pile ups in Tennessee I think it was in the morning with fog settling over the mountains and temps just right.Multiple fatalities as I recall.Do they send out warnings over the air for ICE conditions like they do up here for snow storms and high winds?

The Paris Agreement is failing; we need a new approach | The Hill

New analysis of countries’ pledges to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions finds they fall well short of Paris Agreement climate goals. And that’s just in terms of what countries say they intend to do in the future, not even what they’re working in some concrete way to implement. A hundred countries say they are aiming for net-zero or carbon neutrality by 2050, yet just 14 have enacted such targets into law. Climate progress may slow further with energy markets roiled by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, making it harder for example to close coal-fired power plants.

These are just the latest of many data points suggesting that the Paris Agreement, which itself allowed for widespread ecological destruction, is failing. Meanwhile in real time, global warming is already killing and sickening people and damaging fetal and infant health worldwide.Maybe it’s time for a rethink, and a deeper approach.
