Think Progress Says We Only Have 14 Months Left To Save The Climate Or Something

There have been lots of bad Warmist predictions, such as Doom by 2000. NYC would be under water and be like Daytona Beach. That the Earth would be 2-4 degrees higher by than 1988 by 2018. And, so, since those and all the others were not working out , we then got doom in 2100. Then 2050. Then it was 20 years. Then 12. Then 18 months. And now

It’s fantastic that they use a photo with AOC and her Green New Deal. You know, the one she refuses to demand a vote on, freaked out when the Senate voted on it (along with not quite getting that a Senator co-sponsored it and submitted it in the Senate), and has said it’s more of a “blueprint”. Anyhow, why fourteen? What’s going through Excitable Joe Romm’s head?

Scientific reality makes clear that the only plausible way to preserve a livable climate — and hence modern civilization — starts with aggressive national and global cuts in carbon pollution by 2030.

But political reality makes clear that such cuts can’t happen instantly — and that global action requires leadership from the United States. After all, the U.S. is the richest country in the world and the biggest cumulative source of heat-trapping emissions over the past century.

With eight years of a pro-science president, Barack Obama, the nation made steady progress on reducing emissions and committing to future reductions, enabling a global climate deal in Paris in 2015. But with just two and a half years of an anti-science administration, national and global progress have both stalled under President Donald Trump, who has begun to abandon the Paris Accord and undermine action here and abroad.

That means November 3, 2020 — the U.S. presidential election — is the deadline for Americans who do not want to destroy the health and well-being of current generations, their children, and future generations. If Trump is reelected, the prospects for the necessary national and global cuts in carbon pollution by 2030 will be gone.

The First Street Journal notes that math is hard

I wondered: what would happen in fourteen months that would be the tipping point? According to Mr Romm, it’s the presidential election, and how President Trump must be defeated, to save the world.

Trouble is, fourteen months from July 26, 2019 is September 26, 2020, more than a month before the presidential election. Had he written fifteen months, that could have been literary license, given that the election is fifteen months and eight days away. But fourteen months? I’m supposed to give credence to the supposedly scientific arguments made by a guy who can’t even count?

Well, of course, since none of this stuff emanating from the Cult of Climastrology has anything to do with science, math, or any hard disciplines….. Joe is just pimping his normal doom and gloom. Make sure to read both articles in full.

    I will admit to some surprise: even though Think Regress has been informed, through Twitter, that fourteen months leads only to late September of 2020, they haven’t corrected the article.

    While checking that, I found another article, by the same better-than-us writer, Joe Romm, entitled Trump ‘poses the single greatest threat’ to our climate, bombshell UN report makes clear. In it, the distinguished Mr Romm wrote:

    The nations of the world — including the U.S. — unanimously approved a landmark climate report warning that we need far stronger climate policies to stop catastrophic climate change than the world agreed to in Paris in 2015.

    “This latest report underscores the danger that Donald Trump poses to the planet,” as leading climate expert Michael Mann told ThinkProgress. It “makes clear we need to reduce emissions dramatically, vastly exceeding our Paris targets. Yet Trump probably poses the single greatest threat to meeting those targets.”

    The bombshell in this “Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5ºC” from the world’s foremost scientific panel on climate change (the IPCC) is that on our current emissions path, we will cross a key threshold of dangerous climate change (1.5ºC or 2.7°F) by 2040.

    Equally shocking is that — absent much stronger global action and a very sharp reversal of Trump’s anti-climate policies — we would hit an even more worrisome threshold of catastrophic climate change (2°C or 3.6°F) just two decades after that.

    President Trump withdrew our signature from the Paris agreement — a signature which carried no legal force, since the agreement was structured in such a way that President Obama would not have to submit it to the Senate for ratification — but Mr Romm pointed out some group of academics which stated that even the Paris targets were wholly insufficient to stop global warming climate change.

    Simply put, according to Mr Romm, even if President Trump had not withdrawn his predecessor’s signature and the US tried to keep to the Paris targets, it wouldn’t have been enough.

    Fortunately ThinkProgress probably will not be around in 14 months.

      To me, “progress,” as in thinking about progress, would include things like more Americans getting jobs . . . like is happening under President Trump> It would include a commitment to liberty . . . something anathema to the fascists of today’s left. It would include judging people solely on their merits, and what they do . . . something which gives the willies to the left, who would have everyone judged by whatever accredited victim group to which they belong. It would include the economic freedom to achieve what you can . . . which the left believe cannot be done. It means the opportunity to try to succeed . . . which also includes the possibility of failure.

    Now only 14 months? It’s as if they are just making this stuff up as they go.
