Crisis Delayed: New Hotcoldwetdry Report Says Chance Of Doom As Early As 2040

This rather contradicts all the current Warmist fear-mongering about ‘climate change’ being here now and causing every single Bad Weather event, like this

Plenty more where that came from. Anyhow

Major Climate Report Describes a Strong Risk of Crisis as Early as 2040

A landmark report from the United Nations’ scientific panel on climate change paints a far more dire picture of the immediate consequences of climate change than previously thought and says that avoiding the damage requires transforming the world economy at a speed and scale that has “no documented historic precedent.”

The report, issued on Monday by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a group of scientists convened by the United Nations to guide world leaders, describes a world of worsening food shortages and wildfires, and a mass die-off of coral reefs as soon as 2040 — a period well within the lifetime of much of the global population.

The report “is quite a shock, and quite concerning,” said Bill Hare, an author of previous I.P.C.C. reports and a physicist with Climate Analytics, a nonprofit organization. “We were not aware of this just a few years ago.” The report was the first to be commissioned by world leaders under the Paris agreement, the 2015 pact by nations to fight global warming.

The authors found that if greenhouse gas emissions continue at the current rate, the atmosphere will warm up by as much as 2.7 degrees Fahrenheit (1.5 degrees Celsius) above preindustrial levels by 2040, inundating coastlines and intensifying droughts and poverty. Previous work had focused on estimating the damage if average temperatures were to rise by a larger number, 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit (2 degrees Celsius), because that was the threshold scientists previously considered for the most severe effects of climate change.

The new report, however, shows that many of those effects will come much sooner, at the 2.7-degree mark.

So, doom, doom, and doom. And this NY Times article is one of the lesser doom-saying ones out there. Others are completely unhinged. But, anyhow, how can we fix this?

Avoiding the most serious damage requires transforming the world economy within just a few years, said the authors, who estimate that the damage would come at a cost of $54 trillion. But while they conclude that it is technically possible to achieve the rapid changes required to avoid 2.7 degrees of warming, they concede that it may be politically unlikely.

For instance, the report says that heavy taxes or prices on carbon dioxide emissions — perhaps as high as $27,000 per ton by 2100 — would be required. But such a move would be almost politically impossible in the United States, the world’s largest economy and second-largest greenhouse gas emitter behind China. Lawmakers around the world, including in China, the European Union and California, have enacted carbon pricing programs.

Huh. So, a radical change to a different type of economy (strange that they don’t want to say it’s about doing away with capitalism in favor of a government controlled economy, eh?) And all sorts of taxes and fees. As positioned by “91 scientists from 40 countries” who took long fossil fueled trips, along with thousands of politicians and bureaucrats to South Korea.

But, from the climascientist community, this is total doom. Unlike the standard low level members and non-sciencey big shots (think Al Gore) of the Cult of Climastrology, the higher end scientists (who should know better) had been sticking with the “doom in 2050 or 2100” meme. But no

Absent aggressive action, many effects once expected only several decades in the future will arrive by 2040, and at the lower temperature, the report shows. “It’s telling us we need to reverse emissions trends and turn the world economy on a dime,” said Myles Allen, an Oxford University climate scientist and an author of the report.

Well, really, every year prior to the UN IPCC Conference On The Parties meetings they come out with some sort of “we’re all doomed!!!!” paper.

The report concludes that the world is already more than halfway to the 2.7-degree mark. Human activities have caused warming of about 1.8 degrees since about the 1850s, the beginning of large-scale industrial coal burning, the report found.

What? No. Where did that extra .3F come from? It’s really between 1.4F and 1.5F. Now they’re just making things up. And it is mostly natural. And the Warmists cannot prove it’s mostly/solely man-caused using science.

    Just enjoy our tax-cuts and live it up! Conservatypists and commenters will most likely be dead or dying by 2040 so let the next generation worry about it. After all, we had to handle the hole in the ozone, air and water pollution, acid-rain, and the commies… and our parents beat the Nazis and built the America we used to have.

    Let the kids, grandkids and great-grandkids earn their own stripes. The hell with ’em!!

    2040? I thought we were all supposed to gone by now? *Science*
