Hot Take: Even If We Do Something About Climate Emergency It’ll Still Be Hot

I told you not to have that delicious cheeseburger, fries, and sugary drink after taking a fossil fueled drive to the airport to take a fossil fueled flight!

Carbon Emissions Could Plummet. The Atmosphere Will Lag Behind

In the next several days, the Biden administration is expected to announce plans across the economy to reduce America’s greenhouse gas emissions dramatically by 2030.

The Biden administration’s goal is to speed the process to avoid a climate tipping point that scientists warn is quickly approaching. If global warming continues at its current pace, rising seas and heavy rain will flood cities around the world, wildfires and hurricanes will become even more destructive, and many more plant and animal species will go extinct.

The tipping points they’ve been pimping for 30 years?

But reducing emissions, even sharply, will not immediately fix the problems up in Earth’s atmosphere. It took decades for greenhouse gases to accumulate in the atmosphere and trap heat, and it will take centuries for those gases to dissipate once humans decide to stop pumping them into the air.

“When you emit carbon dioxide, the climate stays altered for a long time,” says Solomon Hsiang, a climate scientist who is the co-director at the Climate Impact Lab at the University of California, Berkeley. “And so we kind of have to deal with that baggage no matter what.”

Everyone alive will still need to adapt to a warming climate. Today’s adults will be dealing with climate-driven extreme weather for decades to come. But if countries transform their economies to cut heat-trapping emissions sharply, today’s kindergartners could inherit a safer world when they reach middle age.

This really does two things: one, it’s meant to subtly explain away why, despite the big drop in CO2 output during Lockdown there was no atmospheric change. Second, it sets the stage for Believers to willingly give up their money, freedom, and choice to Government and not say “hey, when’s this going to make a difference?” Because they’ve been told nothing will change for centuries, so, they’re Saving The Future!

You can read the rest of the propaganda piece at NPR, as that’s what it is, as they attempt to Justify this whole thing, but, expect a steady diet of this kind of “It’s For The Future!” stuff over the next few years with China Joe in office pimping climate change/crisis/emergency/doom.

    Well teach at least now you havecstopped posting that we are in danger of a new ice age

    Say teach any response to my answer to your question to whethervthe climate conference in Scotland was going to use 200% renewable electricity?
    Well in case you didn’t tesd it Scotland gets 97.4% of its electricity from renewables modtlybwind https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_whistle3.gif

    As usual Johnnie retard doesn’t tell the whole story and like the BBC story he’s quoting from leaves out some rather inconvenient facts.

      I am so sick and tired of the constant lying from the left. Not just about the climate scam but Wuhan Flu, the election steal, “equity”, the Georgia election law, White supremacy, the wonderful mooslems, the “benefits” of diversity, BLM, the Capitol protest and on and on.

      Is there nothing they believe which is not a lie? Take CNN…..

      The director explains that CNN is capitalizing on fear. “It’s fear. Fear really drives numbers [when it comes to TV ratings] … Fear is the thing that keeps you tuned in.”
      Chester says that he has gotten CNN to take the death toll counter down, but then the “bat phone” rang and CNN President Jeff Zucker demanded the network restore the death toll.
      “The special red phone rings and this producer picks it up. You hear [murmurs], and every so often they put it on speaker and it’s the head of the network being like, ‘There’s nothing that you’re doing right now that makes me want to stick. Put the [COVID death toll] numbers back up, because that’s the most enticing thing that we had. So, put it back up.’”
      Chester also confesses that CNN drives the narrative, asking leading questions in order to get people to say what the network wants them to say.
      “Any reporter on CNN — what they’re actually doing is they’re telling the person what to say… It’s always like leading them in a direction before they even open their mouths,” he says. “The only people that we [CNN] will let on the air, for the most part, are people that have a proven track record of taking the bait.”
      Chester also confesses that his network focuses on “doom and gloom.”
      “No one ever says those things out loud, but it’s obvious based on the amount of stories that we [CNN] do,” he says. “The fact that we have a segment called ‘The Good Stuff’, which is a feel-good thing, but it’s a dedicated moment at the end to almost be the ice cream to alleviate everything that you’ve been through. Something sweet to end it with, because everything else is doom and gloom.”

        More projection… “climate scam but Wuhan Flu, the election steal, “equity”, the Georgia election law, White supremacy, the wonderful mooslems, the “benefits” of diversity, BLM, the Capitol protest”

        The Earth is warming from human-generated CO2, Covid has killed over 560,000 Americans, the election was not stolen, equity would be a good thing, the GA election law gives the GOP control over elections, white supremacy is all around and sucks, Muslims are people too, diversity is a fact, BLM has a right to protest, right wingers tried to overturn a US election at the behest of trump.

          “White supremacy is all around..” Of course J has no proof “it’s all around”, which is par for the course. It’s just another liberal one charge fits all mantra. It can mean whatever the person wants it to mean to justify a verdict that’s been decided in advance. Sorta like global warming

        • Jl says:

          Good one-“BLM has a right to protest”. No one ever said other wise. You forgot to mention that they don’t have a right to loot, block traffic, resist arrest without repercussions and set buildings on fire. All part of their “peaceful protests”..

        • david7134 says:

          Jeff,
          You do realize that in your zeal to use the term epigenetic you acknowledged that people of color are less inclined to higher IQ than whites. That is your true attitude, not that of the people here.

        • Dana says:

          The esteemed Mr Dowd wrote:

          equity would be a good thing

          Just what does that mean, Mr Dowd? The left throw that word around, but are never telling us what it means, to them.

  4. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Teach: it’s meant to subtly explain away why, despite the big drop in CO2 output during Lockdown there was no atmospheric change

    There’s nothing subtle about it. We can only hope that Teach is playing dumb rather than actually being this ignorant about a topic in which he pretends to be an expert. You can cut CO2 EMISSIONS to zero tomorrow and a year later it would have no impact on global warming. Why? Because the ATMOSPHERIC CONCENTRATION of CO2 would not decrease. Why? Because CO2 stays in the atmosphere a long, long time. So the Earth would continue to warm until a new equilibrium was reached between solar energy entering and infrared radiation leaving.

    Teach has made the specious argument more than once – that a slight reduction in CO2 EMISSIONS should cause global cooling, and that it doesn’t, falsifies the theory of CO2-induced global warming.

    • drowningpuppies says:

      Rimjob calling others ignorant, while being the scientific expert he claims to be, uses such specious arguments as

      Because CO2 stays in the atmosphere a long, long time.

      Again, Rimjob is not very smart.
      Bwaha! Lolgf https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_cool.gif

    • Jl says:

      But the temperature not rising (the hiatus, the heat’s hiding in the oceans, etc.) during continued CO2 rising would tend to falsify it

  5. drowningpuppies says:

    “Fear sells,” he says, in announcing CNN’s next political propaganda crusade, for “global warming.”

    He also says “Climate change is going to be the next Covid thing for CNN.”

    And he says that this is dictated by Jeff Zucker.

    So everything you believe is a fukin lie, I see. Mooslems are people but Islam is anti American, anti Christian and anti Semitic which makes them evil people. You’re the guy always bitchin about “theocracy”. Islam is a theocracy. They stone women, murder queers, own slaves and mutilate girls. So we know mooslems are people but exactly what kind of people are they? Do you want those type here?

    You need to concentrate on three things before you start pointing out all the stupid shit you believe:

    Why do you hat White people?
    Why do you hate Christians?
    Why do you hate America?

    Once you crawl out of your racist, bigoted shithole explain what you are afraid of.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Isn’t kristianity anti-Muslim and anti-Semitic? The US Constitution (your should read it sometime) says: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;

      Does that mean that the state can’t discriminate against both kristians and non-kristians? In general, yes, yes it does.

      Would you 1) propose to keep non-kristians from immigrating to the US and 2) deport non-kristians… or are you just anti-Islam?

      How many Muslims tried to subvert the US electoral institution? That effort was led by a kristian poseur.

      Why are you afraid of Muslims?

      I’m concerned with unAmerican, caucasian, right-wing militia types who have been making plans to kidnap, try and execute gov’t officials.

    BTW, the Xiden SBA just forgave $844,000 of my original “Covid loan”. A month early, no less. The corruption never ends when the fascists are in charge. Thanks, Elwood. Oh, and my lawyer created my 501(c) corp. this afternoon. Hey Elwood, I’m a charity now. No taxes, federal grants, your Junta is really doing good. At least if you’re not a child in cages sodomized, raped, beaten or murdered at the Kameltoe Harris border she and premier Xiden refuse to visit.

    My guy is pouring over the new “infrastructure” law to see what we can qualify for. Now that everything is infrastructure I intend to get all I can. I too can become stinkin rich off of govt largess just like a BLM boss now that a corrupt unelected Junta is in charge.

    Hey, are the elites in DC still ‘protected” by armor and troops and walls or have they decided to take their chances against more unarmed mothers?

    Wow !!! That is amazing
    Scotland now has so much renewable energy that they ate selling itvatva profit to the UK!!

    And this at a subsidized cost that costs each Scot about 10 cents US per day
    Lol
    That is so small a cost the Svits may not even know they are being taxed 10 cents per day
    Scotland’s next goal is an ambitious 50% of all energy used in Scotland to be from renewables by the year 2030
    They are already trying to get more people to use electric cars
    This program may also cost the Scots another 10cents each per fsy
    By the year 2030
    May God have mercy on their souls

    • drowningpuppies says:

      Uh, retard, Scotland is part of the U.K.

      It’s rice pudding Friday there at the nervous hospital.
      Hurry up and getcha some.
