New Climate Cult Study Rules Out Less Severe Scenarios Or Something

Climate cultists must be upset that the media and most people are still ignoring the climate crisis (scam) during the Bat Soup Virus occurrence. Seriously, I’ve mentioned before that it has become rather difficult to find any articles of interest over the past months, so, scaremongering time! (note: this is from the Seattle Times, which reprinted the Washington Democratic Party Post article, but forgot the link to the study. I’ve added back)

Major new climate study rules out less severe global warming scenarios

The current pace of human-caused carbon emissions is increasingly likely to trigger irreversible damage to the planet, according to a comprehensive international study released Wednesday. Researchers studying one of the most important and vexing topics in climate science — how sensitive the Earth’s climate is to a doubling of the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere — found that warming is extremely unlikely to be on the low end of estimates.

These scientists now say it is likely that if human activities — such as burning oil, gas and coal along with deforestation — push carbon dioxide to such levels, the Earth’s global average temperature will most likely increase between 4.1 to 8.1 degrees Fahrenheit (2.3 and 4.5 degrees Celsius). The previous and long-standing estimated range of climate sensitivity, as first laid out in a 1979 report, was 2.7 to 8.1 degrees Fahrenheit (1.5 to 4.5 Celsius).

If the warming reaches the midpoint of this new range, it would be extremely damaging, said Kate Marvel, a physicist at NASA’s Goddard Institute of Space Studies and Columbia University, who called it the equivalent of a “five-alarm fire” for the planet.

If ifs and buts were candies and nuts we’d all have a wonderful Christmas.

The new range is narrower than previous studies, but shows at least a 95% chance that a doubling of carbon dioxide, which the world is on course to reach within the next five decades or so, would result in warming greater than 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit (2 degrees Celsius) relative to preindustrial temperatures. That is the threshold beyond which scientists say the Earth will suffer dangerous effects — disruptive sea level rise, intolerable heat waves and other extreme weather and permanent damage to ecosystems.

So, that is the less severe scenario, which is a 95% chance if perhaps maybe CO2 hits 800ppm in 50 years or so? Gotta wonder, what happens if CO2 does and we don’t get 3.6F, essentially a 2.1F increase in 50 years (or so! Gotta be scientific and precise, you know!) after seeing just 1.5F since 1850.

Staying below that is still possible. If steep emissions cuts are made in the near-term, a doubling of carbon dioxide levels could be avoided. But if a doubling does occur, there would be a 6 to 18 percent chance of exceeding the upper bound defined by the study of 8.1 Fahrenheit (4.5 Celsius).

Yeah, you know the rest of this long, long climate cult sermon is just scaremongering. When will the Washington Post and Seattle Times give up their own use of fossil fuels? How about the rest of Warmists? And, no, I will never give up on that talking point, not till Warmists practice what they preach.
