Climate Cult: Huge Drop In CO2 From Bat Soup Virus, But We Still Need Massive Policy Changes

Haven’t the members of the Cult of Climastrology been screaming and screeching for everyone to reduce their carbon footprint for 25+ years?

Covid-19: Biggest drop in CO2 emissions since WWII but little impact on climate change

Though scientists expect carbon emissions to fall by 5% in 2020, the coronavirus pandemic is having very little impact on climate change, according to the World Meteorological Organization.

A new forecast produced by climate experts of the Global Carbon Project which produces widely-watched annual emissions estimates, predicts that carbon dioxide emissions could fall by the largest amount since World War Two.

Rob Jackson, a professor of Earth system science at Stanford University in California who chairs the Project, said carbon output could fall by more than 5% this year – the first dip since a 1.4% reduction after the 2008 financial crisis.

“Neither the fall of the Soviet Union nor the various oil or savings and loan crises of the past 50 years are likely to have affected emissions the way this crisis is,” he added.

But experts warn that without structural change, the emissions declines caused by coronavirus could be short-lived and have little impact on the concentrations of carbon dioxide that have accumulated in the atmosphere over decades.

So, wait, they’re saying that a reduction in “carbon pollution” output won’t make a difference? That’s weird. And that the only thing that would make a difference is to implement all sorts of taxes and fees and take away your freedom and choice, handing it all over to Government? Huh. It’s almost like this is a scam.

Any reductions in pollution and carbon dioxide emissions are likely to be temporary, said Lars Peter Riishojgaard, from the infrastructure department of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), a United Nations agency based in Geneva.

“It does not mean much for climate,” he told a virtual press conference.

Riishojgaard said there was a lot of media speculation about what impact the global pandemic might have on the climate, greenhouse gas emissions and longer-term global warming.

“While in the short term, carbon dioxide emissions would go down as cars stay put and aircraft remain on the ground, “we expect the impact will be fairly short-lived,” Riishojgaard said.

“The pandemic will be over at some point and the world will start going back to work and with that, the CO2 emissions will pick up again, maybe or maybe not to quite the same level.”

Let’s consider: they’re estimating a 5% reduction of CO2 output from Bat Soup Virus. The original Paris Climate Agreement wanted a reduction of 20% overall in order to avoid a 2C increase. And now Warmists are calling for a 7.6% decrease per year till 2030 to avoid their mythical 1.5C increase.

How does 5% feel right now? Are you enjoying it? Ask the average Warmist if they are enjoying it. Ask them if they want their lives to be like this for the next decade. See what they say. It’s easy for the bigshots in the CoC to make these pronouncements, because they certainly won’t live the 7.6% life. They’ll jet off around the world and live the high life.

    It’s almost like Teach is an idiot. Charitably, maybe he’s just a liar. What they actually SAID is that a temporary dip in CO2 emissions will make little difference in long-term global warming. Evidently, this is only news to the illiterati.

    No doubt, closing almost all businesses and forcing people to stay home forever would cut CO2 emissions, but who has ever recommended that to solve climate change? Hint: no one.

    Teach is making a Strawman Argument.
