Climate impacts 'overwhelming' - UN
BBC News ^ | March 30, 2014 | by Matt McGrath

Posted on 03/30/2014 5:44:17 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

Scientists and officials meeting in Japan have published the most comprehensive assessment to date of the impacts of climate change on the world.

Members of the UN's climate panel say that their report provides overwhelming evidence of the scale of these effects.

Natural systems are bearing the brunt right now but the scientists fear a growing impact on humans.

Our health, homes, food and safety are all likely to be threatened by rising temperatures, the summary says.

Speaking to journalists at a news conference in Yokohama to launch the report, Michel Jarraud, secretary-general of the World Meteorological Organization, said that, previously, people could have damaged the Earth's climate out of "ignorance".

"Now, ignorance is no longer a good excuse," he said.

And the solution is to give them global taxation authoritah in the name of fighting global warming.

I find the IPCC WAY underwhelming, though this Winter was quite annoying from a Global Warming perspective.

Dear Mr.Jarraud:

What would happen, in your "learned, and expert" opinion, if 7 billion people farted at the same time?

Our health, homes, food and safety are all likely to be threatened by rising temperatures, the summary says.

Very curious assertion because it is supported only by opinion. Our health, homes, food and safety are all likely to be threatened by falling temperatures, the summary could say.

Our climate has been changing since the beginning of time. Mankind has little to do with climate change. The Sun is the dominant factor in climate change on Earth and other planets that make up our solar system.

Dr Saleemul huq completed his BSc (with Honours) in 1975 from Imperial College, London, United Kingdom and his PhD in plant sciences also from Imperial College in 1978. He was the winner of the prestigious Robert- Macnamara Fellowship from the World Bank, Washington DC, USA (1986-87) and Duggan Fellowship from NRDC, Washington DC, USA, in 1989. He taught at the University of Dhaka until 1984 when he set up (and became the first executive director) of the Bangladesh Centre for Advanced Studies (BCAS) in Dhaka, Bangladesh. In 2007, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize – as contributor to the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. In the same year, he was also awarded the Burtoni Award for his contribution to capacity building in climate change negotiation of the developing countries.

At least he's a biologist. Most of the people involved with this scam aren't even scientists.

OK!! Everybody pay attention!

Lesson for today:

1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.

2. The sun is a ball of fire that controls the climates of all its planets.

3. The earth is one of the sun’s planets.

4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.

5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.

Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?

I was drying some towels on a clothes line in the back yard and my “favorite Prius driving lib” came up to me and told me that outside clothes lines in view of the golf course were against a city ordinance.

I told her I was combatting gore bull warming. She left in a pissy mood. Makes me proud and happy to tick them off. She is very short minded, since I used the same argument against her about two years ago.

Clotheslines in view of a golf course are verboten?

How about stray golf balls in your hanging clothes? Verboten too?

The sun is a ball of plasma with complex electromagnetic interactions.

It can only be controlled through higher taxes. ;)

And there is no global warming. If there were, there’d be some evidence beyond the lies we’ve been told.

Would be interesting to hear Sheila Jackson Lee’s response to that question. I’m sure she has one and it, for sure, will require more growth in government. After all she has figured out that more oversight by her Homeland Security Committee and TSA will solve the issue of the disappearing airplanes in the future and guarantee the safety of passengers and crews.

#1 green is on the north side of the street and #2 tee is just outside the south end of our fence. You can't imagine the number of golf balls that land in our yard. Put it this way, there are some bad golfers playing here.

Guess you could tell her that you didn’t have a screen to put up to block all the errant balls from flying through your windows so you thought you’d try hanging towels out instead. I do like your response though. I’ll have to remember that.

i can't believe the US government has banned lightbulbs for a a hoax called global warming. it is so shocking this could happen in America a free country.And the media hid it from the public that the government banned lightbulbs. the media is the problem the enemy. i hate the government . they are pure evil . i hate democrats. instead of the news media showing what the government is doing (like banning lightbulbs and Obama's IRS oppressing conservatives)they show us Trayvon martin, adam lanza, global warming hoax, olympics, sports, and a missing plane.
