Bummer: D.C. Climate Will Hit Tipping Point In 2047

Are you ready for yet another climate tipping point article fable?

(Washington Post) Locations around the globe will soon reach climatic tipping points, with some in tropical regions — home to most of the world’s biodiversity — feeling the first impacts of unprecedented eras of elevated temperatures as soon as seven years from now, according to a study released Wednesday.

On average, locations worldwide will leave behind the climates that have existed from the middle of the 19th century through the beginning of the 21st century by 2047 if no progress is made in curbing emissions of heat-trapping greenhouse gases, said researchers at the University of Hawaii at Manoa who sought to project the timing of that event for 54,000 locations.

I bet you’re thinking “computer models” right now

Researchers said at a news briefing that their estimates are “conservative,” based on mountains of data from 39 models and accurate within five years in either direction for any of the locations they studied.

They say some will hit this point earlier, some later. All are decades in the future, when people will have forgotten about another scary prognostication. Remember this?

According to July 5, 1989, article in the Miami Herald, the then-director of the New York office of the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), Noel Brown, warned of a “10-year window of opportunity to solve” global warming. According to the 1989 article, “A senior U.N. environmental official says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000. Coastal flooding and crop failures would create an exodus of ‘eco-refugees,’ threatening political chaos.” (LINK) & (LINK)

We’ve heard about these “tipping points” ever since. Yet, they don’t ever actually happen, at least as prognosticated. Remember when they grew great wine grapes in England during the Medieval Climate Optimum? Well before fossil fueled vehicles and when CO2 was “safe” below 350ppm. They can’t do that now, not without gen modification. It was warmer then than now.

Anthony Watts catches something funny from lead author of the scary fable, Camilo Mora

A new Vinerism has emerged:

“Within my generation, whatever climate we were used to will be a thing of the past.”.

That “Vinerism” is the “snowfalls are a thing of the past” insanity, which included “Children just aren’t going to know what snow is”, which is where the meme “schoolkids won’t know what X (unplowed roads, oranges after a heavy frost, standing roofs) looks like” comes from, meant to denigrate these Warmists. Which leads to my next point.

A few days ago James Delingpole wrote that we have to stop indulging the poisonous fantasies of Warmists

But what I really don’t think we should be doing at this stage in the game is allowing it to be our problem too. As I argued here the other week, there is more than enough solid evidence now to demonstrate to any neutral party prepared to cast half an eye over it that the doomsday prognostications the warmist establishment has been trying to frighten us with these last two decades are a nonsense. The man-made global warming scare story has not a shred of scientific credibility. It’s over. And while I don’t expect the alarmists to admit this any time soon, I do think the rest of us should stop indulging them in their poisonous fantasy.

It’s also time to stop treating them as anything other than bat-shit insane fear mongers and hysterics. Time to stop treating them with any sort of deference and kid-gloves. These nuts are dangerous and insane, living in fantasy worlds meant to push their far left politics. Anyone who believes in “climate change”, and, let’s be clear, I mean the folks who think that small amounts of CO2 released by Mankind is causing every weather even, hot, cold, wet, dry, snow, ice, etc, plus volcanoes and earthquakes and everything else, should be treated as the wackjobs they are. Beaten into submission. Treated with derision.

    So, if climate changes on a scale of a millenia, then if the drastic never-before-seen changes in the tropics in 7 years… shouldn’t we start seeing those changes by now?
    http://www.geocraft.com/WVFossils/PageMill_Images/image277.gif
    Question, if life before now was either so much HOTTER, and thousands times more CO2, or MUCH COLDER, then how did life survive? How did we get to those HOT periods? How did we get to those COLD periods? If man was not around emitting his CO2, and only his CO2, then how did climate change? And, if most of the last 500 million years had CO2 above, WAAAAAAYYYY above 400ppm, then how did anything survive? how did humans evolve to what we are now if CO2 was much higher during the most delicate mutation phases?

    Or….. (looks around surreptitiously) … was it the HIGH CO2 that caused our mutations? And our current overlords are trying to prevent the CO2 from returning so as to prevent our next EVOLUTIONARY EVOLUTION!!!?!?!?!

    By the way, I think from now on, anytime anyone cites or mentions or is even asked about the IPCC, we should just state, “they are a joke and I will not dignify them and their joke of a report with any comment”. Or, “oh, you mean the much maligned and often ridiculed organization of incompetent gov’t workers?”

    They want us to believe that those models that have failed to model any temperature over the last 100 years is supposed to predict with 95% accuracy the temperatures of the future?

    Teach,

    You can always find someone who says something outrageous, overreaching the facts. No one knows when the Arctic will be ice free, but we can be pretty certain it will happen.

    You typed: “It’s also time to stop treating them as anything other than bat-shit insane fear mongers and hysterics. Time to stop treating them with any sort of deference and kid-gloves.

Beaten into submission. Treated with derision.”

    You’re delusional if you think mankind has released only small amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere. Atmospheric CO2 is higher now than at any time in at least the last 500,000 years. I don’t know of anyone who thinks climate change is “causing every weather even, hot, cold, wet, dry, snow, ice, etc, plus volcanoes and earthquakes and everything else…”

    You and your minions (and the even dumber folks over at the Gateway Pudenda) already treat people who discuss the actual science of climate change with derision.

    Man-made climate change is real. A rational discussion over what we should do (if anything) about it is welcomed. But first you should face reality.

    Man-made climate change is real. … But first you should face reality.

    Who is not facing reality?! Man can not change the climate unless he destroys the world first. At least we can’t as of yet.
    And, notice how you pick 500,000 years as your cutoff point. Yet, CO2 was much higher before then and we had no issues. For most of Earth’s existence, CO2 was much much much higher up to 7,000ppm. So, you can take your version of reality and go somewhere else with it. WE live in realz-ville here. And here, only a less-than 400ppm CO2 at 0.03% of the atmosphere is nothing, NOTHING at all to be worried over. It is incapable of doing much of anything to our global atmosphere.

    I don’t know of anyone who thinks climate change is “causing every weather

    Then you are not paying attention. You have not been reading the news.. or payin attention to even the blog posts that you have been commenting on. The fact that you are here, means you DO KNOW of people who claim ever bit of weather is a sign of climate change – because Teach posts it every single day.

    You and your minions.. already treat people who discuss the actual science of climate change with derision.

    No we don’t. we treat anyone who wishes to discuss science with respect and dignity. When you deny that the earth and sun are part of our global warming process, that CO2 is the sole reason for our Greenhouse Effect, then you are only a cultist pushing a much laughed at religion.

    “we treat anyone who wishes to discuss science with respect and dignity. When you deny that the earth (sic) and sun are part of our global warming process, that CO2 is the sole reason for our Greenhouse Effect, then you are only a cultist pushing a much laughed at religion.”

    This sums up your problem. No one is denying that the Earth and sun are part of global warming. No one is arguing that CO2 is the sole reason for the greenhouse effect. If you think most folks are laughing at the idea of global warming, you need to get out more. Your contention that man cannot change the Earth’s climate sounds like a religious argument to me, and not a scientific one. The data disagree with you.

    What was the state of human civilization 500,000 years ago?

    You repeat the misconception that the concentration of CO2 is too low to cause the greenhouse effect. How does a lower concentration of CO2 cause the Earth to warm but a 40% higher concentration has no effect?

    I beseech you. Pick one of your misconceptions and let’s discuss.

    Let’s start with the interaction between CO2 and infrared radiation. I’ll admit that I’m no expert, but let’s explore the century old data together. I could be wrong. Perhaps there is no physical basis at the core of AGW. But let’s start somewhere.

  5. “This sums up your problem. No one is denying that the Earth and sun are part of global warming. No one is arguing that CO2 is the sole reason for the greenhouse effect..”

    You obviously haven’t been paying attention to what your Warmist brethren have been saying. Because that’s what they have been saying. They mostly/solely Blame Mankind for the current warm period, primarily from “carbon pollution” from fossil fueled vehicles. They blame things from hair spray to ice makers to A/C. Having children. And so much more. they minimize, at best, the effects of the Sun, moon, water vapor, and other natural processes.

    Perhaps you missed where the highly politicized UN IPCC just said that mankind is 95% responsible? Obama, Gore, Waxman, etc and so on all Blame mankind. Hansen, Mann, Prince Charles, Joe Rommel. Keep going. Yet, none of them practice what they preach. It’s almost like they know this is a bullshit issue designed to get the low information voters, also known as Democrat voters, whipped up to push for more and more big government, more taxation, and more government control.

    You favorite cult leaders and IPCC have said as much. They’ve claimed that since the sun’s output is fairly static over the short term, then it can’t explain the warming over the long term, thus they say that the sun does not correlate to “global warming”. Yet, there is a strong correlation between the sun’s activity and Earth’s temperature. Also, that belief belies the sun’s addition to any natural variability. The sun.. is a major player in our greenhouse warming, with our own Earth the other component.

    So, the fact that your cult does not believe the sun plays a role in our greenhouse, means your side does not practice science.

    If you think most folks are laughing at the idea of global warming, you need to get out more.

    No they are not. Majority of folks who follow the science believe that the world has warmed. What we laugh at are those who believe man can change the global climate in any serious way. Or that we should eliminate our economy and our technological way of life for the chance that a reduction of CO2 production will in any way affect the natural CO2 production cycles or affect the world’s climate.

    Wanting to reduce our world’s CO2 levels from 0.04% to 0.03% (and believing that will have a reversal affect on global catastrophe that WILL occur in a few years) when our worst storms occurred at the lower levels, reducing the CO2 plants feed on, and in the hopes of reducing our world’s natural warming cycles is not science.

    What was the state of human civilization 500,000 years ago?

    Glad you asked. It was much worse than now. People dying from wild animals. A struggling colony of humans trying to find food and water to survive a few short decades. Many, many, many women and children die at childbirth. Many get sick or die from tainted water and rotten food. Limited interactions with other tribes and a complete slave to climate changes.

    Y

    You repeat the misconception that the concentration of CO2 is too low to cause the greenhouse effect.

    Truth needs to be repeated. Many, like you john, dont like the truth.

    How does a lower concentration of CO2 cause the Earth to warm but a 40% higher concentration has no effect?

    False question. A concentration of CO2 at 0.03% does not cause the world to warm up any more than a concentration of 0.04% does. CO2 has very little impact upon the world’s temperature since CO2 has very very very little concentration in our atmosphere. CHanging CO2 concentrations by 0.01% does nothing when compared to the real greenhouse gases. And the little impact that it does have has already occurred due to CO2’s logarithmic warming nature.

    Let’s start with the interaction between CO2 and infrared radiation. I’ll admit that I’m no expert, but let’s explore the century old data together.

    No, you are not. That’s obvious. None of us here are. But the one thing that seperates scientists from cultists is the ability to analyze true and testable facts and adjust your beliefs accordingly. Your cult refuses all anti-CAGW research and calls all who do not bow down to carbon taxing and government over-reaching “deniers”.

    Why not study the last 2 centuries? or the last 2,000 millennia? Or the last 500 million years? Why claim that today’s weather is any worse than what has occurred before? That’s hubris and that is not science.

    I could be wrong.

    Yes, and you usually are. Your bias, your misogyny, your racial hatreds, and your desire to get this planet rid of humanity proves how wrong you are.

    Perhaps there is no physical basis at the core of AGW.

    You are correct. Glad you were able to start there. Now, since there is no physical, or real, basis for AGW, then your whole cult falls apart.

    Believing in CAGW despite no basis in fact, science, or reality, is not science.
