UN Report Says To Give All Fossil Fuels Or Doom

Here’s the nutty 350.org’s take on the wacky UN IPCC report

350.org Australia welcomes the release of the latest IPCC report, to be launched in Berlin today, which shows there is no excuse for funding new coal and gas projects.

The report highlights the need for a drastic transition from carbon polluting fossil fuels to a clean renewable energy system if the world is to remain below the two degree global warming limit agreed by world leaders. To fund the transition, the IPCC said at least USD30 billion per year would need to be divested from dirty energy over the coming decades, while investments in renewable power would need to double.

“The latest IPCC report confirms what we’ve known all along – The answer to climate change is simple: stop funding new fossil fuel projects and invest in renewable energies,” said Blair Palese, CEO of 350.org Australia.

Funny how these same people use quite a bit of fossil fuels themselves, but want to restrict it for Other People. A common theme amongst today’s posts, much less almost a decade worth of posts. Another theme is that Warmists want these restrictions enforced by Government. Oh, look, more wackadoodles

“Everything we have and are is at threat from climate change. Most terrifying is the threat of losing our Islands to sea level rise,” continued Lutunatabua.

“Already villages are being located – from Papua New Guinea to Fiji. Many of us are coastal peoples, and the sea level rise we have seen in recent decades has been enough to put hundreds of villages around the Pacific Islands on a knife-edge. Unless we stop polluting the atmosphere with greenhouse gasses, and rapidly phase out fossil fuels, then it becomes entire islands that we will lose,” concluded Lutunatabua.

Yes, these islands are in danger from anthropogenic causation, but it’s not “climate change” that is the danger. I wonder if these islanders will refuse to allow tourists to fly in on fossil fueled planes?

    “… the report states that diverting hundreds of billions of dollars from fossil fuels into renewable energy and cutting energy waste would shave just 0.06% off expected annual economic growth rates of 1.3%-3%.” This means a projected growth rate of 3.06% would be cut to 3.00% by acting logically and reasonably about global warming. Much more economic damage resulted from the crash of the housing market in 2007-2008 and the resulting recession.

    This is not new. Experts who specialize in environmental economics have consistently told the same story. The cost of not acting is much greater than the cost of acting.

    I met Bill McKibben years ago when I worked for the world’s largest agrichemical company. Sharp guy. And nice.

  3. Yeah, not sure what the hell happened. I did it with Droid phone app, looks like somehow the link lost formatting, messed the rest up. Should be fixed shortly.
