Climate Scientists Spread Panic: ‘Ten Years’ to Save the Earth
Breitbart ^ | April 15, 2017 | by Thomas D. Williams, Ph.D.

In the latest in radical climate doomsaying, a new report warns that fossil fuel consumption will need to be reduced “below a quarter of primary energy supply by 2100” to avoid possibly disastrous effects on global temperatures.

In their report, titled “Pathways for balancing CO2 emissions and sinks,” a team of eight scientists warns that “anthropogenic emissions need to peak within the next 10 years, to maintain realistic pathways to meeting the COP21 emissions and warming targets.”

The statement was immediately repackaged by environmentalists to read: “Scientists say we have ten years to save the earth.”

As is always the case in studies of this sort, the scientists juggle dozens of variables, none of which is entirely predictable and which taken together tell us virtually nothing about the future of the environment.

Although the scientists admit that “there are significant uncertainties associated with projecting energy consumption several decades into the future,” they fail to acknowledge a number of even greater uncertainties implicit in their calculations.

Despite their valiant efforts to produce trustworthy projections, the scientists rely on basic presumptions that are contested by extremely capable minds within their own field.

Dr. Duane Thresher, a climate scientist with a Ph.D. from Columbia University and NASA GISS, has stated bluntly that it is “mathematically impossible for climate models to predict climate.”

Appealing to corollaries of the well-known “Butterfly Effect,” Thresher said that long-term climate forecasting is “a quintessential example of this phenomenon” because of the elevated number of variables playing into climate phenomena.

Butterfly effect? More likely, it’s more the well known rainbows and unicorns effect. Fairy tale.

Both Algore and his equally credible scientific colleague Ted Danson.

Yep, just like the old ongoing USSR “Five Year Plans” to save their economy. Pure BS.

>>“Ten Years’ to Save the Earth”

Since its an imaginary threat, let’s make up imaginary solutions.

We should end all welfare and use that money to invent a warp drive and a fleet of starships. After all, the people on welfare will die anyway in 10 years, so its better now than later.

On January 26th 2006, the Washington Post reported that Al Gore “believes humans may have only 10 years left to save the planet from turning into a total frying pan.” The Daily Caller elaborates a bit more on Gore’s predictions.

In 1965 they were scaring the cr*p out of us grade school kids by telling us by 1970 we would be in an ice age and out of oil. By 1970 the world’s known oil reserves had vastly increased and the weather hadn’t changed a bit. From that point on, any article attributed to “scientists” hit the waste can unread.

Are there still fish in the ocean?
Not according to Ted Danson something like 15 years ago.

Well, I guess it worked the last time.

That’s what they said 15 years ago.
