The 4 Horsemen Of The Climate Change Come

Let’s bring the quote out again, shall we?

“In the United States of America, unfortunately we still live in a bubble of unreality. And the Category 5 denial is an enormous obstacle to any discussion of solutions. Nobody is interested in solutions if they don’t think there’s a problem. Given that starting point, I believe it is appropriate to have an over-representation of factual presentations on how dangerous (global warming) is, as a predicate for opening up the audience to listen to what the solutions are, and how hopeful it is that we are going to solve this crisis.” — Al Gore

In other words, lying, over-stating, and trying to scare the daylights out of people is quite acceptable, all in the name of Anthropogenic Global Warming. Hence

War, hunger, poverty and sickness will stalk humanity if the world fails to tackle climate change, a 12-day UN conference on global warming heard on Monday.

A volley of grim warnings sounded out at the start of the marathon talks, a step to a new worldwide treaty to reduce greenhouse gases and help countries exposed to the wrath of an altered climate.

“Humankind in its activity just reached the limits of the closed system of our planet Earth,” said Polish Environment Minister Maciej Nowicki, elected to chair the December 1-12 meeting in the city of Poznan.

“Further expansion in the same style will generate global threats of really great intensity — huge droughts and floods, cyclones with increasingly more destructive power, pandemics of tropical disease, dramatic decline of biodiversity, increasing ocean levels,” said Nowicki.

“All these can cause social and even armed conflict and migration of people at an unprecedented scale.”

Where to even start? Alarmism? Check. Everyone is going to die? Check. War? Check. People moving around willy nilly? Check. Things that have been going on for the lifespan of life on Earth? Check.

Photoshop ideas not coming. Anybody? Maybe it could have something to do with the Black Plague that haunted the world at the start of the Little Ice Age.

PS: UN climate talks to create 13,000 tonnes of carbon. I wonder where the money to pay for the offsets they promise to buy afterwards will come from?
