UN IPCC: All Use Of Fossil Fuels Needs To Stop To Save The Climate

As expected, the report is continuing the theme of apocalyptic doom

(Fox News) Climate change is happening, it’s almost entirely man’s fault and limiting its impacts may require reducing greenhouse gas emissions to zero this century, the U.N.’s panel on climate science said Sunday.

The fourth and final volume of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s giant climate assessment didn’t offer any surprises, nor was it expected to since it combined the findings of three earlier reports released in the past 13 months.

But it underlined the scope of the climate challenge in stark terms. Emissions, mainly from the burning of fossil fuels, may need to drop to zero by the end of this century for the world to have a decent chance of keeping the temperature rise below a level that many consider dangerous. Failure to do so, which could require deployment of technologies that suck greenhouse gases out of the atmosphere, could lock the world on a trajectory with “irreversible” impacts on people and the environment, the report said. Some impacts are already being observed, including rising sea levels, a warmer and more acidic ocean, melting glaciers and Arctic sea ice and more frequent and intense heat waves.

There are your marching orders, Warmists! You need to give up all use of fossil fuels. Which is an interesting assessment, considering how often Warmists themselves use fossil fuels, not to mention how much they use. Since fossil fuels are so evil, will the UN hold their 2014 COP (Conference on the Parties) via Skype, Go To Meeting, or something similar? Because getting 10K or so people to Lima, Peru, will use quite a bit of fossil fuels, wouldn’t you say?

Anyhow, as far as all this goes, Bob Tisdale writes

Anthony Watts’s post Meh, same old ‘gloom and doom’ from the IPCC over new climate report at WattsUpWithThat prompted this one. I started to write a comment on that thread that began with, The IPCC is nothing more than a… and I went on from there, trying with some success to limit my word count. But I didn’t post it. I figured it would make for a great topic of discussion all by itself, with everyone adding their own continuation to that preface.

So to start the ball rolling, here’s what I came up with.

The IPCC is nothing more than a report-writing entity:

  1. that was created by politicians for use by politicians to achieve an political-agenda-driven goal
  2. that relies on politician-financed climate models that were designed, and continue to operate, with the single-minded intent of showing bad things will happen in the future if we continue to consume fossil fuels.

The IPCC and their reports provide no value to anyone other than the politicians who created that body.

He goes on to ask people to continue he “The IPCC is nothing more than a…” meme. I don’t have much more to add, because he is on the money, except that I’d not that this is about a far far left Progressive (nice fascist) political-agenda-driven goal. I’d also note that the IPCC is a hypocritical organization which use vast amounts of energy and fossil fuels to tell Other People how to live their lives, preferably by legislative force.

Anyhow, if you don’t like the Fox News article, which actually came from the Associate Press, how about the BBC?

Fossil fuels should be phased out by 2100 says IPCC

The unrestricted use of fossil fuels should be phased out by 2100 if the world is to avoid dangerous climate change, a UN-backed expert panel says.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says in a stark report that most of the world’s electricity can – and must – be produced from low-carbon sources by 2050.

Fortunately, the IPCC has granted a 100 year reprieve from doom. Originally, they were claiming doom by 2000.

Will all the leftist news outlets hyping the IPCC report give up their own use of fossil fuels? Will Warmists? Will the UN IPCC? Good luck with that.

    Well, by 2100 I’ll be 147 years old, so the odds are that I won’t be around to see the truth of the UN report.

    Global Warming and Hot Women

    A new study “suggest” this global warming thing is due to hot women. The recent data has shown that the ozone layer isn’t to blame for global warming trends, and scientists are looking in a new direction – at hot women. Let me explain, back in the day…

    “The unrestricted use of fossil fuels should be phased out by 2100 if the world is to avoid dangerous climate change, a UN-backed expert panel says.” from BBC quote

    Somebody will decide what is unrestricted use and approve or deny permission to use fossil fuels. First Death Panels and now Mandatory Energy Conservation Panels. If you are a “Warmist Denier” forget flying home to attend Mom’s funeral, hot showers, cooked food, driving to work — you don’t deserve any fossil fuel. If you are a warmist and can prove you bought carbon credits, recycle and pay for green energy, you might get permission to enjoy the benefits of fossil fuels — but you better have to have money to donate.
