Washington Post: Climate Change (Hoax) Debate Is Over

So says the anonymous board….are any actually climate scientists? Anyhow

“CLIMATE CHANGE is occurring, is very likely caused by human activities, and poses significant risks for a broad range of human and natural systems.”

So says — in response to a request from Congress — the National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences, the country’s preeminent institution chartered to provide scientific advice to lawmakers.

In a report titled “America’s Climate Choices,” a panel of scientific and policy experts also concludes that the risks of inaction far outweigh the risks or disadvantages of action. And the most sensible and urgently needed action, the panel says, is to put a rising price on carbon emissions, by means of a tax or cap-and-trade system. That would encourage innovation, research and a gradual shift away from the use of energy sources (oil, gas and coal) that are endangering the world.

Hmm….so a body that gets money from the government says it’s very likely…..hey, is that actually scientific? Very likely? How about an actual percentage, chumps?….so we must institute a system that has so far not encouraged innovation and a shift away from other sources throughout the countries that have tried cap and tax. Could it be that these scientists get lots of money for pushing anthropogenic global warming…..oh, sorry, they can’t even use the real terminology. And, cool, we are “endangering the world.” Because the Earth has never been hot in the past 4.5 billion years.

Seizing on inevitable points of uncertainty in something as complex as climate science, and on misreported pseudo-scandals among a few scientists, Republican members of Congress, presidential candidates and other leaders pretend that the dangers of climate change are hypothetical and unproven and the causes uncertain.

Oh, wait, climate science is complex? Who knew? As far as “a few scientists”, the WP conveniently ignores that these “scientists” have been the leading advocates, including as members of the UN IPCC.

Tell you what: I’ll believe when the Washington Post stops killing trees, which help scrub CO2 from the atmosphere, and says they will no longer publish a print paper.

    I wonder how many of their members actually agree with this statement. Alarmists have taken over the executive leadership at many science organizations in recent years and often issue statements in the name of the organization without ever consulting the membership.

    It’s genuinely tragic how what were once non-partisan scientific bodies dedicated to dispassionate research have been ethically corrupted for political purposes.

  2. Black Sabbath says:

    This is just the alarmists on the Left rallying to try another attempt at that tired ‘the science is settled’ crap’.
    It won’t work. Too many of us are waking up.

    Umm, yes, Teach. It is scientifically significant to the 18.5 percentile. I may be conservative in that estimate.
