Battle Plan for Climate Change: How to Cut Greenhouse Gases
National Geographic ^ | April 9, 2014 | by Dan Vergano

Trust in technology: That seems to be the underlying message of a coming report from the world's top panel on climate change.

Scheduled for release on Sunday, the new Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report will point to many possible ways - from burying greenhouse gases to going nuclear to encouraging biofuel production—to save humanity from the ravages of climate change.

"I think we will see that there are a wide number of paths we can take to get to the mountaintop we want to reach," says economist James Edmonds. "We just have to pick what mountaintop we all want, in terms of a temperature goal for the climate. And we have to decide to climb there."

Such methods are expensive and face skepticism, however. "The technology only works ... if you store the carbon and you put some kind of price on carbon to make it economically feasible," Edmonds says, adding that all carbon-cutting technologies should be available for policymakers to consider.

"The more bullets you have to shoot, the more likely you are to hit your target," he says.

The term ‘Climate Change’ is an admission that the theory is a failure. CO2 was supposed to increase temperature. It didn’t. They have nothing left.

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?

Greenhouse Theory thoroughly debunked. It's dead, Jim!

Global Warming is not due to human contribution of Carbon Dioxide - Global Warming: The Cold, Hard Facts? By Timothy Ball

No Smoking Hot Spot (The Australian)

The missing hotspot (JoNova)

Those two articles take Greenhouse Theory at face value and by the criterion set up in the theory itself finds no evidence of warming on the basis of greenhouse effect.

Sky-high hole blown in AGW theory?

"Forbes reports on a peer-reviewed study that uses NASA data to show that the effects of carbon-based warming have been significantly exaggerated. In fact, much of the heat goes out into space rather than stay trapped in the atmosphere, an outcome that started long before AGW alarmists predicted:"

That article explains why no Hot Spot has been found.

The Hidden Flaw in Greenhouse Theory

Falsification Of The Atmospheric CO2 Greenhouse Effects Within The Frame Of Physics

Harvard astrophysicist dismisses AGW theory, challenges peers to 'take back climate science'

It Is Impossible For A 100 ppm Increase In Atmospheric CO2 Concentration To Cause Global Warming

Simple Chemistry and the Real Greenhouse Effect.

Those five articles each show that Greenhouse Theory has no basis in reality due to a direct conflict with the known laws of physics. No wonder the smoking gun "hotspot" can't be found.

Claim That Sea Level Is Rising Is a Total Fraud

That article kills any thought of planetary warming from any cause. Think about it. If there is absolutely no sign of rising sea levels how could the planet be warming? The rise in sea level in the last 100 years is far less than the average over the last 40,000 years caused by the inter-glacial period we are in.

A temperature goal for the climate.

Stick to your day job, Jimmy. Idiot.

Jimmy the Idiot is on the right track although he probably doesn’t know it. We should demand that the Warmers state what global temperature do they want? Make them answer that. Watch their heads (and their rhetoric) start spinning but keep pressing for the answer.
