Bummer: World Has Only Three Years Left To Stop Hotcoldwetdry

You know, there comes a point when it gets tedious trying to keep track of all the apocalypse prognostications from the Cult of Climstrology. Here comes another one

World has three years left to stop dangerous climate change, warn experts

Avoiding dangerous levels of climate change is still just about possible, but will require unprecedented effort and coordination from governments, businesses, citizens and scientists in the next three years, a group of prominent experts has warned.

And lots and lots of redistributed money from taxing/feeing the hell out of citizens. Of course, these experts will get their cut

The authors, including former UN climate chief Christiana Figueres and Hans Joachim Schellnhuber of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, argue that the next three years will be crucial. They calculate that if emissions can be brought permanently lower by 2020 then the temperature thresholds leading to runaway irreversible climate change will not be breached.

Neither is actually a climate scientist, though, they do stand to gain a lot of money and prestige, and power, from this fable. Schellnhuber is the one that came up with that 2C yammering point back in 1995, though.

They set out six goals for 2020 which they said could be adopted at the G20 meeting in Hamburg on 7-8 July. These include increasing renewable energy to 30% of electricity use; plans from leading cities and states to decarbonise by 2050; 15% of new vehicles sold to be electric; and reforms to land use, agriculture, heavy industry and the finance sector, to encourage green growth.

Interesting. When Leftists, and make no mistake that these are far, far left leftists, want to reform something, it means putting it under control of centralized government. Do you want them in charge of land use, food production, and the flow of money? Warmists should step back and moment and ask themselves if they would want government in charge of their land, what they eat, and their own money, and wonder why things like this are so important to the climate big wigs. Perhaps some Warmists will have a mental breakthrough.

    Seven years ago they said was ten years away! Why don’t they make up their minds?

    And Al Gore said in 2006 “An Inconvenient Truth” that we would have a “true planetary emergency” within a decade.” What emergency?

    I thought that we’d already passed the ‘tipping point’ last year.

      If you look at the blue line for surface temperatures, you will note that it is largely positive since atmopheric CO2 exceeded 340 ppm.

      However, theories of climate change are not based on mere correlation, but are mechanistic. Nor do theories of climate change posit that CO2 will lead to a monotonic increase in temperature, as there are many other influences on climate, including aerosols both natural and artificial, and solar irradiance, among other mechanisms.

      • drowningpuppies says:

        Good to know y’all finally admit that CO2 is not the driver of global warming.

          Instead of making up stuff, it’s best if you address the actual arguments people make. We did not say that CO2 is not the primary driver of current global warming, only that there are other influences on climate that can increase or decrease the warming effect.

          • drowningpuppies says:

            Okay, y’all finally admit that the evidence of CO2 driving global warming has not been proven.

          • david7134 says:

            I am afraid to tell you that you and Jeff only argue that CO2 is the main reason for climate change. Which is bull no matter how many articles you present. And the reason that it is so important to have this as the main driver is that you fantasize that man is the principal source in his use of fossil fuels and that the only answer to this horror is world communistic government and marked reduction in the economy of the US, principally. So, you have created a political issue and not an environmental one.

            drowningpuppies: Okay, y’all finally admit that the evidence of CO2 driving global warming has not been proven.

            There is strong scientific evidence that the current warming trend is due to anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases.

          • Zachriel says:

            david7134: only argue that CO2 is the main reason for climate change.

            Anthropogenic greenhouse emissions are the major cause of the current climatic warming trend; however, there are many mechanisms involved in historical climate change.

            david7134: marked reduction in the economy of the US

            That is directly contrary to our view. Rather, continued economic growth is essential to spur the development and deployment of the new technologies required to respond to the global warming.

    OMG OMG OMG, this is what is passing for Science from the crew that shouts down non-believers of global warming!

    Through a review and synthesis of a multi-disciplinary and wide-ranging literature on human-ice relations, this paper proposes a feminist glaciology framework to analyze human-glacier dynamics, glacier narratives and discourse, and claims to credibility and authority of glaciological knowledge through the lens of feminist studies. Feminist glaciology asks how knowledge related to glaciers is produced, circulated, and gains credibility and authority across time and space.
