To Slow ‘Climate Change’ We Need Coronavirus Type Lockdowns For Decades Or Something

The Arizona Mirror is running this little tidbit, something voters should think about

Voters must choose whether we fight or ignore climate change

(lots of the same whining about ‘climate change’)

Voters will make the ultimate decision. Will we be a state that mitigates or ignores climate change?

Well, as Arizona voters, and the rest of America (heck, countries around the world), vote, think about this as they include the climate crisis scam in the mix

Coronavirus is Not Helping to Slow Down Climate Change

One of the few positive outcomes (if we want to call them that) of the drastic measures implemented to contain the pandemic is that we may have reduced our planet-warming carbon dioxide emissions. Disrupting our lives, the pandemic has transfigured our society by reducing transportation, production of goods, and a whole series of activities that heavily add CO2 into the atmosphere.

Global CO2 emissions immediately after the global lockdown last spring decreased by 17% from 2019 average levels during the same period, with the peak of the reduction reaching 26%. A new study now takes stock of the situation and predicts that, based on data in the energy, industry and mobility sectors, in 2020 global CO2 emissions will drop by up to 8%. Unfortunately, although this may seem like a victory, this value is a drop in the ocean of emissions that we humans have injected in the atmosphere. Alone, it is not enough to have a significant effect on climate change.

We’ve noted this several times, that CO2 went down 17%. You enjoyed lockdown, right, in all its various facets? The economic devastation, loss of freedom, liberty, and choice? Being threatened with arrest/fines for being outside your home, for daring to travel anywhere, right?

“To reduce the CO2 concentration in the atmosphere in the long run, the restrictions imposed during the pandemic would have to be continued for decades. But even this would be far from sufficient,” says study author Ralf Sussmann of the Karlsruher Institut für Technologie in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), cumulative reductions of this magnitude would be needed each year to achieve the Paris Agreement goals by 2030.

“The restrictions imposed during the corona crisis, however, are far from being sufficient,” says Sussman. “They have just resulted in a one-time reduction by eight percent. To reach zero emissions in the coming decades, cumulative reductions of the same magnitude would be required every year, i.e. 16 percent in 2021, 24 percent in 2022, and so on.”

To achieve those reductions, the study authors point out, “political measures have to be taken to directly initiate fundamental technological changes in the energy and transport sectors.” Policy changes can promote changes in our society that can lead to large reductions in carbon emissions while accounting for the economy and our lives. These measures should be accompanied by the capture of CO2 that already resides in the atmosphere.

The pandemic can teach us a lesson on how the planet can react to the greenhouse gases that we are pumping in the atmosphere, and can show us a path that can help us deal with the climate crisis. If only we will listen to it.

You’re OK with this, right? Essentially destroying the economy and taking away all your rights, instituting an authoritarian government at all levels, right? No? How about all you Warmists, you’re good with that, right? If you Believe, you should be willing to take one for the climate. What’s that, you don’t want to do this in your own life? Huh.

    TEACH typed: We’ve noted this several times, that CO2 went down 17%.

    Emissions were reduced temporarily with no measurable effect on CO2 levels.

    Mr Tedesco told the truth:

    One of the few positive outcomes (if we want to call them that) of the drastic measures implemented to contain the pandemic is that we may have reduced our planet-warming carbon dioxide emissions. Disrupting our lives, the pandemic has transfigured our society by reducing transportation, production of goods, and a whole series of activities that heavily add CO2 into the atmosphere.

    Disrupting our lives is exactly what the warmunists want, because we are just not living our lives the way they saw we — but not they — should.

    Reducing transportation? Mr Tedesco wants us more restricted to our homes. Reducing production of goods? Perhaps he doesn’t see it this way, but that sounds to me like making people live poorer.

    According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), cumulative reductions of this magnitude would be needed each year to achieve the Paris Agreement goals by 2030.

    It always amazes me how people who are apparently still good in their jobs during these idiotic shutdowns can so blithely recommend 15% unemployment, for other people, of course, for a decade.

    Sure, we can all revert to a virtually emissions-free lifestyle, if we will just all revert to a third world Rwandan lifestyle. No computers, transportation by horse-pulled carts, scratching at the dirt in the hope that we’ll have a few mustard greens or some polk salad for supper.

    Except the alterations (cooling) to the past government climate data has created an impression of warming that does not exist in the data as originally reported.
