Global Warming roundup: The questions after the IPCC report

After the IPCC report, global warming critics continue to ask the same questions, attacking the science of projecting temperature and weather decades, even centuries into the future.

Anthony Watts writes: “…it’s beginning to sound like a broken record. The same message over and over again. It’s as if these folks don’t pay attention to history.”

Watts leads the attack of “rushed data” and hysteria perpetrated by the media. They point to their WUWT story: BOMBSHELL: audit of global warming data finds it riddled with errors.

NASA’s lead global warming advocate, Dr. Gavin Schimidt, has had enough of the UN and media’s climate tipping points.

CNN reported on October 8: “Governments around the world must take ‘rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society’ to avoid disastrous levels of global warming, says a stark new report from the global scientific authority on climate change.”

The Guardians speaks of “Hell Tornadoes” and a “Hellfire” as they bemoan that climate change loyalists just don’t vote: “An obstacle in the US is the large pool of environmental voters who don’t actually vote, according to public records and polls analyzed by the Environmental Voter Project. It estimates more than 15 million people who rank the environment as a top tier issue didn’t vote in the 2014 midterms. Since its creation in 2015, the voter project claims it has increased turnout of target voters by as much as 4.5% in elections.”

The new book, The Politically Incorrect Guide® to Climate Change reveals, climate tipping points have a long history of repetition, moved deadlines and utter failure. The book documents that the earliest climate “tipping point” was issued in 1864 by MIT professor who warned of “climatic excess” unless humans changed their ways.

Barry Brill notes that China and India’s refusal to cooperate creates a barrier we cannot overcome: “Both China and India have made it very clear that the urgent needs of their people preclude any possibility of contributing to emission reductions during the Paris Agreement’s initial commitment period ending in 2030. Instead, China is expected to increase its 2010 emission levels by 50-100%, while the International Energy Agency predicts that emissions in India will treble over the 2010-30 period.

“If China and India alone account for 23.31 Gt in 2030 – about 65% of the current total – the IPCC’s 45% global reduction target is clearly impossible. Even if all 195 other members of the UNFCCC (including USA), somehow eliminated all of their CO2 emissions by 2030, they could achieve much less than the global decline required.”

Rex Murphy attacks the endless list of doomsdays, calling the IPCC “Infinite Projectors of Climate Collapse”: “Things are looking, unsurprisingly, down. 2100 used to be the final frontier. It’s been moved up some 70 years to 2030. And we’ve lost half a degree. The new threshold is 1.5, where we used to have the full comforts of a whole two degrees. Other good news. No one is living up to their commitments.”

Murphy basically says the global warming alarmists are “crying wolf” too many times “I think that string has run out. They can play Wagner and whistle the Ride of the Valkyries all they want from here on. People are tired of that music, and sick of the band.”

Then there is Trump.

According to Former Irish President and UN Apparatchik Mary Robinson, President Trump’s refusal to hand over loads of money for clean energy research is hurting people’s feelings.

“I don’t think as a human race that we can be so stupid that we can’t face an existential threat together and find a common humanity and solidarity to respond to it. Because we do have the capacity and the means to do it – if we have the political will.”

Robinson is pointing to the insane financial figures called for in the IPCC report: $122 trillion. Then there is the $240 per gallon tax: “In 2030, the report says a carbon tax would need to be as high as $5,500 — that’s equivalent to a $49 per gallon gas tax.”

So that’s the propsition: $50 per gallon gas in ten years, reallocate over $100 trillion and hope India and China play ball or it will all be for naught.
