Skip to comments.Give up meat, coal, oil, economic growth and national sovereignty - orders new IPCC climate report
Posted on 04/14/2014 2:28:59 AM PDT by markomalley
The United Nations (UN) has delivered its latest verdict on the measures necessary to save the world from global warming and the news is as grim as it is predictable and wearisomely familiar:
More regulation from "experts", technocrats and bureaucrats at supranational organisations, such as the one whose initials begin with U and end with N.
More taxpayer subsidies for expensive, inefficient renewable energy.
More nuclear power (with shale gas used as a transitional fuel to replace coal).
The abandonment of fossil fuels.
Less meat consumption.
A single, globally-regulated price for carbon dioxide.
More local-government-enforced walking, cycling and public transportation.
More back-door wealth redistribution from the West to the developing world in the name of "sustainability"
All at a cost to the global economy of up to 3.7 per cent of GDP by 2030, provided we act now.
These are the recommendations of Working Group III of the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), due to be officially announced in Berlin on Monday.
The report notes that almost half of the rise in post-industrial anthropogenic (man-made) CO2 levels since 1750 occurred during the last forty years. Therefore, it argues, a dramatic decarbonization of the world economy - including more renewable energy and less fossil fuel - must begin immediately if global warming is to be kept below 2 degrees C by the end of the century.

If you want to feed these people, you need warm climates.
They are certifiably insane.
They are certifiably insane.
Oops, two for the price of one. However, it bares repeating. :-)
They could start by offing themselves as a good faith effort. Their lust for power and control is more than frightening, they need to be treated as the terrorists that they are.
They just hadn’t thought of that yet.
Environuts have made it pretty clear that they hate mankind and would like to see some depopulation. I spoke to one on the subject and he said he’d prefer genocide over extinction.
Eugenics in reverse, huh?
That goal is being accomplished via higher and higher prices.
Not just meat though, my family of 4 is paying through the nose for all groceries.
Wacko birds! In John McCain speak,
Oddly, the left has always responded to environmental concerns by promoting socialist dictatorship as a “solution.”
I do note, however, that the panel recommends more nuclear power. That actually *is* a common-sense suggestion that does not involve trying to force people to eat unhealthy unnatural diets (i.e. vegan, vegetarian), wealth redistribution, or totalitarianism.
I’m sure at root behind this there are people who very much like the message on the Georgia Guidestones.
Are they wanting to buy some? I got all they want right down here in my trousers...of course it would have a little methane in it too. I can bag up all they want and send it to them. Anybody know where/how? Is there a centralized clearing house or do they have it distributed like all these "We buy Gold" places.....
I read through that....fascinating to say the least. What really bothered me are a lot of those so-called ‘guides’.
Actually nothing more than a call for globalism and veiled instructions on keeping freedoms to levels (e.g., freedom is okay but has to be managed within the limits of ‘social duties’) that don’t conflict with the goals of whoever created this.
Limiting global population while encouraging and increasing diversity (another ‘guide’)is nothing more than equalization of all, even though talents, intelligence, and innovation varies significantly.
Ah, the Mystique of Socialism.....
Leftists mostly live in cities and from their personal perspective there are way too many people in the world. They wish they could kill off most people, which is exactly why they don't want you owning a gun.
Well we have 0 care here with it's death panels to shorten the lives of the elderly citizens who no longer work to support government. And better still once they die their already income taxed estates will be taxed again with the government dipping its greedy hooks into their life savings. After all the primary purpose of a citizen in the modrn world is to support government, and once you no longer do that then you no longer have any value to the regime. I'm sure shortening the lives of our older citizens will count something toward that goal.
“Give up meat, coal, oil, economic growth and national sovereignty - orders new IPCC climate report”...
Another bunch of liberal garbage.
We would all be better off WITHOUT the IRCC and the UN.
Absolutely! (and 0bama and Harry Reid and upChuck Schumer and Pelosi and Biden and the ATF and about 4/5ths of the FBI and HUD and the IRS and the EPA etc.)
Of course the self-selected elite and the nomenklatura will jet about the world, meeting at five star resorts in the best climates to discuss progress and further steps to be taken, dining on steak and lobster and foie gras and caviar. Bleck!
They DO NOT “want to feed these people”!!
This is the Population Control crowd!
We need to expel these elitists from the UN building in NYC and give them a row boat and a fishing pole....
They are creating something from nothing.
Also interesting to note that this crisis. as all the others will take place sometime in the future. Year 2100 to be exact.
Tho not the main focus, according to this piece of fiction, 3rd world countries will be affected first. It is not even thinly veiled as an appended attempt to send another quadrillion dollars in aid.
This report is the usual dire prediction that something is bound to happen since nothing has happened yet.
I almost wish I had birds so I could line their cages with the paper this useless supposition was printed on.
They should just come out and say they want between 5 and 6 billion of us dead then earth will be a paradise.
Fascinating, thanks for the link; very interesting story, but I find it implausible that the banker has kept the paper documentation for all these years in the garage and no one has burgled him to try and solve the mystery.
“Less meat consumption”
***More nuclear power (with shale gas used as a transitional fuel to replace coal).

No coal, no gas. Guess those electric cars will have to go by the wayside. Oh, and no jets either. I love how the left doesn’t ever have any idea of the implications of what they are proposing. There’s so much wrong with this proposal. How ridiculous the IPCC is!
It’s obvious that our American business, academic and political leaders at all levels are cooperating with the U.N. on that.
Many of these elites, cloistered in their faculty lounges, will still argue that this is more or less the ideal population for the planet.
A few will argue that improvements in technology might allow for up to three or four billion souls. I've heard this crap with my own ears and I kid you not.
Don't forget that Pol Pot was one of these academics acting out this fantasy in his part of the world.
I prefer to depopulate these Control Freaks who want Depopulation by lobbing rocks on them launched from the moon....
Here is a question to ask these liberal morons: If we came from evolution, then why did nature evolve a species that could alter their own environment?
They want more money for less work from their energy investments and to divert increasing amounts of energy resources to the few foreign manufacturing countries of their choice. Give ‘em what they’re asking for (but not really wanting) by becoming more self-sufficient and saving money. For those willing to think and work, there are always ways. For those of you in northern climates,...

After reading the list I just say “OK Big Boy, you go first”——start with no more meat in the UN cafeteria and go up the list from there.
I’m sure the Chinese will incorporate all recommendations tomorrow....right?
As long as he’s not the one getting genocided I guess.
The only sane one is nurse nuclear power, however, they screw that up by saying no coal after. Our base load generation should be close to 100% coal and nuclear.
If they truly believed in their own crap, they’d off themselves off first.
I have already had some training for this lifestyle having lived in Scandinavia. Steak dinner? Easily $50 a person. No such thing as a Texas Roadhouse $10 steak. No such thing as a 10 dollar anything. Maybe a couple of cokes.
The fallacy of these reports is that there was some time in the past when humans lived in some environmental paradise. If we just give up progress, we’ll get back to it. That is complete BS. The only way to get back to some natural paradise would be to kill a huge chunk of the population.
“Not just meat though, my family of 4 is paying through the nose for all groceries.”
How DARE you have more than one ‘replacement offspring’ for you and your wife! *SMIRK*
We raised a steer last season for meat. All told, he ended up being $3.33 a pound, which is high for burger, but CHEAP for steak. We’re raising another one this season and two pigs, too boot! BACON is up to $8 a pound around here.
Now THAT is criminal! :)
Nothing odd about that. The crises change from time to time, but the "solution" stays the same. Should tell you what it's really about.
I do note, however, that the panel recommends more nuclear power. That actually *is* a common-sense suggestion....
And is therefore not gonna happen. If it decreases dependence on government, it conflicts with the real goal (and the purpose for which IPCC is funded).
Bite me, orders Still Thinking.
Die, IPCC. Die, IPCC. Die, IPCC. Die, IPCC. Die, IPCC.
