Climate change study is grim reading
Bangkok Post ^ | June 12, 2013 | by Bob Ward

Posted on 06/12/2013 3:34:34 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

Governments around the world have just received one of the most important scientific reports ever written. It provides the starkest assessment yet of how the earth's climate is responding to rising levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and creating risks for billions of people from extreme weather events and rising sea levels.

Compiled for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change by 255 scientific experts from universities and research institutes in 38 countries, the report provides an up-to-date overview of the findings of thousands of recent peer-reviewed research papers.

Most important, the latest IPCC report includes an analysis of new computer projections of how global warming might develop by the end of the century. The initial results show that, at current rates of emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, the average global temperature could be at least three degrees centigrade higher by the end of this century than it was before the onset of the Industrial Revolution and widespread burning of fossil fuels.

Good Luck with that, Libtards.

Excepting, of course, that “greenhouse gasses” are being spewed at alarming rates.....

.... and global temperatures are flat for 15 years (NYT).

Think about it, do you really want global cooling and what that entails? Most of North America was an arctic region covered in ice 30,000 yrs ago.

That’s enough for me! In spite of evidence to the contrary!

On this flimsy “science”, let’s proceed post haste to wreck the economies of the developed world and redistribute their wealth to third-world dictators, under the direction of the UN, who of course will get their cut!

It’s a no-brainer!

Can you imagine the panic if the world was cooling every year and both ice caps were growing? My God, the horror.

Paladin2 ~:” “...the average global temperature could be at least three degrees centigrade higher by the end of this century...”

That assumes that all those experts know (?) that an increase in temperature resulted from increase from carbon dioxide.
The last I knew , it was universally accepted that we were in a ‘cooling cycle’, and have been for over 10 years.
This line of thought totally ignores the fact that methane in nature ( Siberia ) is being released into the atmosphere,
and is 25 times more potent than carbon dioxide.

Also , it would be interesting to see who the funding sources are for all these scientists’ research .

And next January could be 8 degrees colder...or 4 degrees warmer...than normal in Milwaukee.

Oh yeah, it would still be the fault of “climate change” and require a massive transfer of wealth to remedy, I’m sure.

One would think that with the earth becoming warmer, growing seasons would be longer and the permafrost belt would recede, making for greater food production. But to leftists and liberals, more food being produced would be bad because it would contribute to the obesity problem.

Wonder if the have seen this? Maybe they are ignoring it and hoping that it will go away.

All “255 scientific experts” can see no such thing.

As time goes on, the alarmist need to become more, and more detached from reality, and cling to their computer models. These models can not recreate historical temperatures, and their predictions did not accurately represent temperatures in the recent past, yet alarmist cling to the belief these same models accurately predict future temperatures. And for not believing in these models that seem to not be able to predict anything with any degree of accuracy, you are called 'anti-science'?!?

The theory of CO2 based climate change is in it's death throes. Here is an excellent presentation that was recently given in Hamburg by Dr. Murray Salby, Chair of Climate, Macquarie University in Australia.

The video starts with an introduction in German, but Dr Salby's presentation is in English. The really good parts are towards the end.
