Good News: There’s Still 11 Years Left To Save The World From Hotcoldwetdry

BTW, this dude totally trolled everyone

It’s so damned good, because this is the type of stuff that climate cultist scientists would prognosticate, that everyone got caught up in it. Heck, even Snopes did a fact check on it.

There’s Still Time to Fix Climate—About 11 Years

On October 31 world leaders will descend on Glasgow, Scotland, for the United Nations Climate Change Conference, or COP26, in a last-ditch effort to defuse the climate emergency by limiting global warming to less than 1.5 degrees Celsius. Reaching that level would still bring violent storms, deep flooding, gripping droughts and problematic sea-level rise, but it would avert even more severe consequences. Global temperature has risen by nearly 1.1 degrees C since the industrial revolution.

Halloween seems a perfect time, eh?

The first step is to get rid of an old idea that doomsayers still embrace, and that the public and media are not clear on—the notion that even if humans stopped emitting carbon dioxide overnight, inertia in the climate system would continue to raise temperature for many years. Because CO2 can persist in the atmosphere for a century or more, the argument goes, even if the concentration stopped rising, temperature would keep going up because the heat-trapping mechanism is already in place. In other words, some level of future warming is “baked into” the system, so it’s too late to avoid the 1.5-degree threshold.

But scientists discounted that idea at least a decade ago. Climate models consistently show that “committed” (baked-in) warming does not happen. As soon as CO2 emissions stop rising, the atmospheric concentration of CO2 levels off and starts to slowly fall because the oceans, soils and vegetation keep absorbing CO2, as they always do. Temperature doesn’t rise further. It also doesn’t drop, because atmospheric and ocean interactions adjust and balance out. The net effect is that “temperature does not go up or down,” says Joeri Rogelj, director of research at the Grantham Institute—Climate Change and Environment at Imperial College London. The good news is that if nations can cut emissions substantially and quickly, warming can be held to less than 1.5 degrees.

How convenient. If we implement tons of taxes, restrictions, and massive government control over citizens and private entities, things will simply stay the same. I think we’ve seen this happen without all that multiple times, in the form of Pauses. Heck, you had dipping during the 50’s through 70’s.

To avoid that threshold, the world can emit only a set amount of CO2 from now into the future. This quantity is known as the carbon budget. In 2019, the year before the COVID pandemic depressed the global economy, the world discharged about 42 gigatons of CO2—similar to the 2018 level and to what is happening in 2021. According to the midrange scenario in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s comprehensive report released in August, “Climate Change 2021: The Physical Science Basis,” another 500 gigatons of CO2 emissions will raise global temperature by 1.5 degrees. Nations have about 11 more years at current emissions rates—2032—before exhausting the budget.

Interesting how that timeline always seems to move forward, eh? And the ones giving the other timelines are never held to account, since there is always some sort of Excuse that is supposedly Science, despite them telling us their Science meant doom.

That threshold moves further into the future, however, if countries significantly reduce their output very soon. Aggressive policies, now, can create more time and more hope for preventing catastrophe. In a 2018 report, the IPCC stated that the world had to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 to keep warming to 1.5 degrees. To get on that track, the September U.N. report says, nations have to cut emissions in half by 2030. Every year of delay brings the world much closer to the edge of the precipice. “We are not trying to hit the temperature targets,” says Rogelj, who is also a senior research scholar at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis and a key author of the 2021 IPCC report. “We are trying to stay as far away from the edge as possible.”

See, we can move the doom threshhold even further out. Just give your money, freedom, and life choices up to government! As told by Elites who are taking lots of private fossil fueled flights to Scotland.

It is also important to understand, Rogelj says, that each added 10th of a degree of warming beyond 1.5 degrees brings greater risk of damaging weather, sea-level rise and other ills to more ecosystems and more people, especially the most vulnerable. He likens the increasing risk to jumping from a platform that today may be a meter high: healthy adults might hit the ground without injury, but small children and the elderly will get hurt. Each additional 10th of a degree raises the platform. “At two meters,” Rogelj says, “many more people are likely to get injured. And at a certain height, everyone will be severely harmed.”

We can stop Bad Weather, you know. I should have added that eye roll back to the emoticons app.

To get there, nations have to jump—now. Some scientists are starting to use the old climate change language to highlight what has to be done. The warming factor that is baked in “is human infrastructure,” Solomon says. If countries let the current stocks of coal plants, natural gas facilities, transportation systems, industrial complexes and buildings live out their natural lifetimes, they commit to a certain amount of additional warming. There is also a lag time in stopping temperature rise, she notes, “a lag in human action—the slow response of people to the problem.” The practical question, says Raymond Pierrehumbert, head of the Planetary Climate Dynamics Group at the University of Oxford, is: How quickly can the world scrub greenhouse gases out of the global economy?

Tell you what: let’s see all the climate cultists make their own lives and businesses Net Zero on their own. See how they do. See if that makes a difference.

    Anyone with an IQ higher than a box of rocks will realize that the highest point in Florida is less than 500 feet above sea level and the Rocky Mountains and the Sierra Nevada mountain ranges average ten times that altitude. This map shows all of Florida still above water but shows vast areas of those massive mountain ranges totally gone, What idiocy. Pure bullshit. I ask you, how can so many of Colorado’s fourteeners (mountains at or above 14,000 feet in altitude) be totally gone, while Florida is still high and dry? Denver is at a 5,000 foot altitude. Santa Fe, NM is at a 7,000 foot altitude. But this laughable “MAP” shows them gone, underwater forever. Good grief, those people can’t possibly be that stupid, so they are nothing more than liars with agendas. Possibly “follow the money” applies here, just like everywhere else.

      Teach typed: BTW, this dude totally trolled everyone

      Including Bob. Note the shape of the “inland sea”… look familiar? Check the shape of Kansas. Look familiar?

  2. Bkb says:

    Oops… a second look at that fairy tale map and it seems Santa Fe is high and dry. Sorry, my mistake.

  3. Zombies are Cool says:

    Talk about scaremongering to the infinite degree.

    This map has most of Wyoming underwater. For those that do not know I went to a game at the University of Wyoming a while back and they have a sign that says welcome to 7250 feet above sea level. Further investigation shows The capital of Wyoming at 6080 feet above sea level. Denver Colorado is called the Mile High City because it is exactly 5280 feet above sea level.

    So according to the agw crowd sea levels are going to rise at least 7250 feet in 30 years.

    This is why I refuse to kow tow to AGW liars, thieves, and Communist Thugs. They scaremonger people and most kiddies without any kind of geography training, which is almost everyone nowadays, looks at this stuff and wails in panic.

    This is why it is so critical for the right to take back schools and unbrainwash our kids. Or else it’s time for Mommie or daddy to stay home and home school.

    • Zombies are Cool says:

      Scientists say this map represents the US in 30 years if we don’t reverse climate change.

      If scientists are saying this…..then it is no wonder science is no longer trust in this or any other country!

  4. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    The zombie was taken in by the joke/hoax, too. Even mr teach recognized that the map was a prank. It’s the Mediterranean dropped on the US.

    Teach: BTW, this dude totally trolled everyone

    Including the zombie.

    Teach: It’s so damned good, because this is the type of stuff that climate cultist scientists would prognosticate, that everyone got caught up in it.

    Including the zombie. This is part of the reason the ignorati (on both the right and left) spread so much mis-information – lack of curiosity and an overriding need to believe the worst of others.

    So no, scientists didn’t claim this is the US in 30 years, some right-wing troll did, and he seems to have caught plenty of right-wingers.

    Note that NE/KS was converted to Italy. Note that MO looks like Greece. To enter the new inland sea one passes through San Francisco (or Gibraltar). See Crete, Cyprus, Sicily, Corsica, Sardinia, Majorca islands?

    Also, tRump lost the election.

  5. Bob says:

    lol… good one! Its the Mediterranean Sea superimposed on the U.S. Congratulations to whoever it was, it was a great trolling job
    !

  6. alanstorm says:

    I’d think even a rabid warmist would balk at the idea that “climate change” would shift the Mediterranean.

    Then again, warmists are pretty gullible, as Elwood demonstrates daily.

    • Zombies are Cool says:

      Alanstorm

      We have made an effort to stop responding to Elwood. He called Kye’s wife a really bad name so Kye left because the op of this blog won’t ban Elwood. No problem for me. It is the op’s blog and his right to do what he chooses and to post what he wants.

      Now I am laughing to myself that he has turned his trolling towards me. Good luck with that.

      • david7134 says:

        I am glad efforts are being made to limit elwood. Kye is not the first to be run off by his extreme comments.

  7. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Good luck, lads. I’ll continue to point out Teach’s lies, exaggerations, mis- and dis-information. Yours too!
