Climate Panel Recommends Global Temperature Ceiling, Carbon Tax By Peter Heinlein United Nations 28 February 2007
A panel of scientists has presented the United Nations a detailed plan for combating climate change. VOA's correspondent at the U.N. Peter Heinlein reports the strategy involves reaching a global agreement on a temperature ceiling.
A group of 18 scientists from 11 countries is calling on the international community to act quickly to prevent catastrophic climate change.
In a report requested by the United Nations and partially paid for by the privately funded U.N. Foundation, the panel warns that any delay could lead to a dangerous rise in sea levels, increasingly turbulent weather, droughts and disease.
The report was issued three weeks after the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change concluded that global warming is real and caused in large part by human activity. But unlike the IPCC report, this latest document makes policy recommendations.
Panel member John Holdren of Harvard University says the world must be mobilized immediately to avoid catastrophe. "Climate change is real, it's already happening, it's already causing harm, it's accelerating and we need to do something about it, and we need to do something about it seriously, starting now. Our specific conclusions are that if the world were to go past the point of an increase above pre-industrial temperatures greater than 2 to 2.5 degrees Celsius, we would be in a regime where the danger of intolerable and unmanageable impacts on well-being would rise very rapidly," he said.
The panel's recommendations include a series of steps to cut the rate at which temperatures are rising. Chief among them are a global agreement on an acceptable ceiling for temperature rise and finding ways of adapting to cope with the damage already done.

Temperature ceiling? Sounds o.k., but who's going to tell Mr. Sun?
The socialists attack again --- TAX, TAX, TAX, TAX anything and everything. Karl Marx would be proud. We have to hand it to the liberals -- they can really create a false reality that either can be taxed or can generate money taken from the government....it is their lifeblood -- like ticks on a dog sucking the blood out of it.
Ping me if you find one I've missed.
My panel did a review and determined with 100% certainty there is no correlation between charging more taxes and climate change.
The climate panel can KISS MY ASS!
What is HUA?
"Head Up A$$"
There, fixed it.
That's why the UN and environmental wackos have been pushing global warming so hard.
"Follow the money" is still good advice.
Why are all liberals so concerned about global warming?
Why, if Al Gore and his buddy Clinton are so concerned about global warming, why didn't they provide any leadership on the issue when they were president and VP? Global warming was talked about a lot in the 90s. Lots of talk but no action then, when these liberal icons were in positions of authority.
Why didn't Clinton push for the Kyoto protocol ratification, if he is so concerned about this? Why didn't he negotiate more on the issues?
There's lots of questions that can be asked about why Dems. don't take certain actions when they have been in charge in Washington.
We can start by tearing down the UN building because they're wasting energy.
Buy a chain and 2 locks for your wallet.
Do any of these scientists who want to set a Temperature Ceiling have any idea where the earth's thermostat is located?
Is the horrible effects of Global Warming any worse than the horrible effects of efforts to stop it will be.?
It's all about global government, global taxation and global regulation.
'Liberty be damned' say these people!
I wonder how they'd feel if we were to modify their little taxing scheme a bit ?
Give each country a GHG "allowance" based on GDP per capita of 1990 levels. If your GDP per capita is lower than the US, then you pay a tax until you can bring your populations's productivity up to the level of Americans.
There, that's better.
so now everytime I fart I have to pay some tax.....DAMN
I'm all for a warmer climate. It's too darn cold where I live.
UNITED STATES CUTTING GREENHOUSE GASES BETTER THAN EUROPE
Communist/socialist/marxist Panel Recommends Global Temperature Ceiling, Carbon Tax (a global tax on greenhouse gas...)
That's because the Clinton years were like so peaceful and serene (Cue Disney music and animated characters)
"...the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change "concluded" that global warming is real and caused in large part by human activity."
PURE BUNK. That report DID NOT "conclude" anything. You'd think these people would know better.....well, maybe not!
"A group of 18 scientists from 11 countries"
Wow, I am f**king convinced. 18 whole scientists.
"CUTTING GREENHOUSE GASES"
Sounds like Gone_Postal in post #20 has been doing his part "cutting greenhouse gas".
May I recommend 53 degrees F, average.
While they are at it, they can just pass a UN resolution declaring that global warming doesn't exist and solve the whole problem.
Some guy was lecturing to a local radio talk sho host about how that an atmospheric temeprature change of just 2 degrees would cause coral to die couldn't explain how a the coral survived the many ice ages and warming cycles.
Sounds like an info-mercial.
"Act quickly, while supplies last. Don't be disappointed."
*shakes head* The hubris of these folks is breathtaking! They really think that just by SAYING SO, they can control the temperature of the world?

Purchase your carbon credits at the local distribution center, comrade!
Taxing the temperature. That's the ticket. If that doesn't stop it, nothing will.
Why is my head hurting?
I have an idea. Why don't we tax people based on their individual electric usage? For example, if someone uses more electricity in one month for one home than the average American uses in a whole year, we should tax his socks off.
Environmental CO2 Reduction! - > Carbon Credits <-
Private Carbon Credits To Reduce CO2 Emissions
That's what I wonder. If sending them money will alter the temperature could we send enough money to keep it in the seventies all year.
I have an even better idea, let's tax the enviros based on the accuracy of their predictions. If the sea level rises less than they predict, make them pay x number of $ for every .1 millimeter they miss their target. Or pay for each .1 degree C they fall under their warming projection each year.
The socialists think they can regulate anything. That's why the USSR failed. Democrats (socialists) would have been right at home in the former USSR.
I use to live in Detroit and my first indicator that someone was trying to con me out of some money was that they needed it right away before I had a chance to ask any questions.
Same here. This nothing but a collosal con game.
Tax his cow, tax his goat,
Tax his pants, tax his coat.
Tax his ties, tax his shirts,
Tax his work, tax his dirt.
Tax his chew, tax his smoke,
Teach him taxes are no joke.
Tax his car, tax his grass,
Tax the roads he must pass.
Tax his food, tax his drink,
Tax him if he tries to think.
Tax his sodas, tax his beers,
If he cries, tax his tears.
Tax his bills, tax his gas,
Tax his notes, tax his cash.
Tax him good and let him know
That after taxes, he has no dough.
If he hollers, tax him more,
Tax him until he's good and sore.
Tax his coffin, tax his grave,
Tax the sod in which he lays.
Put these words upon his tomb,
"Taxes drove me to my doom!"
And when he's gone, we won't relax,
We'll still be after the inheritance tax.
And when the job is finally done
Tax that evil, evil sun
"My panel did a review and determined with 100% certainty there is no correlation between charging more taxes and climate change."
Ok, So I am the US. I say, I will pay the 10 billion and continue to pump out emissions. Who gets the money and how will it change global warming?
I have a better idea. Let's drill ANWR using a cleaner and more efficient footprint, let's dig for coal with a cleaner and more efficient footprint and then let's shut down China's coal mines and Russia's oil fields.
That should do it and the money the Chinese and Russians pay us can go into stockholder equity.
Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha . . . . . . . these people spew this crap like it was actually serious!!!
Who keeps track of the global temperature?
The same people who signed this report.
Sorry, it is a big scam. Temperatures in the 1930s were higher than today. But no one actually knows that since the global temperature monitors keep changing all of the historical records.
And not a single brain between them.
