LA Times: We Only Have 15 Years Left Before Climate Doom

And Everyone Else needs to stop the foot-dragging, per their editorial board

Stop the foot-dragging on climate change

The world has very little time — perhaps 15 years — to make serious inroads on climate change, according to a leaked report from a United Nations panel. Current efforts, even among the most committed nations, fall short, and at the current rate of carbon emissions, the problem might grow too large to overcome with existing technology.

Yet the recalcitrance and myth-making about global warming continue — and become more prevalent — in the United States. Last week, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell moved to employ a little-known law to try to halt a key portion of the Obama administration’s climate plan. And at a Senate committee hearing on climate change, Republican senators delivered their usual speeches denying that a problem exists. There was recently cold weather in the Northeast, they argued. And New Orleans hasn’t seen particularly bad hurricanes during the last few years. If anything is to be done about climate change, several of them hinted or said outright, it must be accomplished without taking away jobs or driving up electricity bills.

Here’s a start: the LA Times could stop killing trees to publish its paper. They could stop using fossil fuels to disperse their paper. They could stop using air conditioning, heating, and make sure no fridges at the office have ice makers. All those on the editorial board could pledge to give up their own use of fossil fuels. Those are just a few measures to show that they really believe that “climate change” is a real issue, rather than a way of pushing far, far left political dogma.

It would be misleading to suggest that there will be no sacrifice involved in reducing carbon emissions.

Where’s the sacrifice from the LA Times and its editorial board? Heck, from any Warmists?

    Do you have direct knowledge of the behaviors of the staff? I didn’t think so.

    And does their behavior refute the argument? It doesn’t? So why bring it up except as a distraction?

    Because your objective is to distract.

    “And does their behavior refute the argument? It doesn’t.” And does their “argument” prove their premise? It doesn’t. And does their argument have facts to back it up? It doesn’t.

  3. Jeffery says:

    jl,

    Then why didn’t the Pirate debate their premise and their argument rather than changing the subject to their imagined behaviors?

  4. And does their behavior refute the argument? It doesn’t? So why bring it up except as a distraction?

    Yes, it does. People who actually believe in something tend to put their beliefs into practice. The LA Times has never published an editorial describing how they are giving up fossil fuels and going carbon neutral. You and I both know the folks on the editorial board won’t give up their nice expensive fossil fueled vehicles.

  5. Jl says:

    J-“Then why didn’t the Pirate debate their premise and their argument.” Probably because they offered a premise without an argument other than to say “it’s going to happen because we said so.”
