Kerry on UN climate change report: "Costs of inaction are catastrophic"
The Hill ^ | March 31,2014 | Justin Sink

Posted on 03/31/2014 10:31:27 AM PDT by Biggirl

The release of a United Nations report detailing the pervasive effects of climate change should serve as a call to action for the world’s nations to curb the emission of greenhouse gases, Secretary of State John Kerry argued Sunday night.

In a statement issued by the State Department, Kerry called denial of climate change science “malpractice” and warned the “costs of inaction are catastrophic.”

Why do you think it is termed “Catastrophic, Anthropogenic Global Warming”?

... the “costs of inaction are catastrophic.”

Not nearly as catastrophic as the costs of action.

“costs of inaction are catastrophic.”

I would argue the opposite. "Cost of action are catastrophic." Especially when there is nothing to spend money on to fix a problem that doesn't exist. Say you collect $1 Billion dollars to "take action". How would John F'n Kerry use that money to cool the earth, or to stop "man made global warming"?

Kerry: "Costs of inaction are catastrophic"

Yes, the costs of inaction regarding Traitorkerry's indictment, court-martial, conviction, and sentencing for treason have been catastrophic.

Weather has always been expensive, but now that it is augmented by the theories of self-serving prophets of dystopia the costs will be catastrophic. It’s so good of Lurch to notice.

Costs of inaction are catastrophic.

But they don’t even come close to the costs of action. Tax increases from now until kingdom come.

The race is on between Kerry, Boxer, Markey and Gore to become the first carbon billionaire. Income inequality be damned.

Kerry on UN climate change report: "Costs of inaction are catastrophic"

So, the GW people I know that think the same way as Kerry I ask them..."If the cost of inaction is the end of the world, why then aren't these people using every medium, every day, to debate and prove to deniers that we're all gunna die? It's only to save the entire world."

Of course, I've NEVER seen a debate of any kind in primetime or elsewhere for that matter.

And, yes...my above question is rhetorical.

"Costs of inaction are catastrophic"

So let's be proactive and eliminate the EPA, drill here, build pipelines, frack, mine, incentivize domestic factories, build refineries and just to be sure to avert a catastrophe burn down the windmills and solar farms and hang all the enviro-tyrannts. At least then we will not be guilty of inaction. If the climate changes we will have the energy and infrastructure to adapt like humankind has always found necessary to survive. If it get too hot we can move agriculture north and run air conditioning, if it gets cooler we can fire up the furnace and build giant green houses etc. We need not be doomed if we only will act before it is too late.

We have to keep pounding home that this is a “social justice” hoax, and not take for granted that others see it that way. A lot of thoughtful people have bought into this crap.

I never seriously considered voting for him but gee... he sure turns out to be a whole lot dumber (and embarrassing!) than I’d ever imagined....
(his comments and activities regarding Russia, Ukraine, the mid-east, and Iran... just awful!)

I presume he's talking about all the "Climate Models" that keep predicting Thermageddon when the satellite data shows cooling for the last seventeen and a half years which really is "malpractice"

Sounds just like the old “It’s the seriousness of the charge...”
