Slogging forward on climate change
Boston Globe ^ | April 16, 2014 | By Scot Lehigh

THE WORLD now has a rough deadline for action on climate change.

Nations need to take aggressive action in the next 15 years to cut carbon emissions, in order to forestall the worst effects of global warming, says the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

Expect a certain part of our political class to insist that man-made climate change is not consensus science, and that until it is, nothing should be done. The problem there is obvious: By the time all the skeptics are persuaded, it will be too late for an effective response. In that regard, climate change poses a test of our democracy’s ability to address a threat pressing enough to require a relatively prompt response but too complicated for a lay person to assess on his own authority.

Just who IS this sh*thead, Scot Lehigh, and why should anyone read his brain-dead collectivist crap?

So far virtually none of the predictions have come true and there has been documented fraud among the so called climate scientists.( no rise in sea levels, no actual warming noted over the last fifteen years, thickening of the antarctic ice, fraudulent data etc) Rational people has a right to be skeptical especially when consequences of the radical “solutions” are considered. The global warming people suspiciously have the same one world globalist political agenda that is prevalent with the UN bureaucracy.Coincidence?

Read the Comments on the BG Site.

The Lemmings are out in force.

Time to make it Illegal for “Climate Change” Supporters to use Fossil Fuel, for anything.

That includes the materials made from Fossil Fuels, including Drugs, Water Filtration, Harvested Crops, Meat or anything being Transported.

I’m not sure what Oil doesn’t touch nowadays.

[Back then, there was a real prospect that cap-and-trade could pass. Now that the issue has been hyper-politicized, it’s hard to imagine that happening in the next few years.]

With the death of the Soviet Union and the discrediting of socialism as a viable economic model the Left embraced environmentalism as the last chance to usher in totalitarianism. Al Gore is responsible for “hyper-politicization” of the issue.

Monsieur Lehigh, le nouveaux Goebbels de Notre epoque.

The final solution is clear.

All women who are pregnant shall be ordered to abort and surviving fetal creatures shall be Gozschnelled. Then those over age of 60 shall be ordered to euthanasia camp. Those left behind shall suffer climate change effects or state equivalent as penalty until they consume a potion of poison.

Then no more humans, no more problems.

Gute Nacht.

This urgency comes from so-called intelligent scientists. This graph shows that even if humans ceased to exist, there is a hell of a lot of CO2 emissions going on anyway. These scientists have their heads up where the sunshine does not shine. It time to take away their meal ticket.

The collectivists love mankind but hate people. If they had their way, they’d pull the plug on everyone but themselves.

Unfortunately, our kids and grand kids are being fed this BS in our public schools by these libs. That’s what bothers me.

The same liberals who bought you Obamacare are now preaching the virtues of a “green lifestyle” to forestall alleged “climate change.” With them it never ends.

And their solutions to any problem usually winds up having unanticipated consequences.

Elitist bumbling jackass. Don't spill your tea on doily, Scot.

He makes no mention of fact, just how stupid people are:
""too complicated for a lay person to assess on his own authority""

The libs are trying SO hard to put their plans to take over the world’s economies in place, but they’re running into a snag. It’s called “Climate Change”, and it’s going on without humans having had anything to do with it. Because of this, their target audience, the low information voter is becoming VERY skeptical about this ‘warming’ the activists keep talking about, because they can see themselves that the climate hasn’t been that warm for the past 15 years or so. Summers overall are not quite as hot, but the winters sure are COLD!

True, but he was simply a 'tool', because he was high profile, and could demand media time; a useful idiot.

What a monumentally ignorant and incorrect statement.

This retard doesn't even seem to know what "consensus science" means. It will forever be a contradiction in terms, and is the foundation upon which the politically-oriented doom and gloom IPCC summary recommendations rest.

Opinions, religion, hysteria, greed for money and power, hard to say what motivates that.

In my youth the word “retard” meant an ordinary run of the mill idiot. Today it’s politically incorrect to use that word. It’s a useful and clear word. Thank you for reminding me of better days. F ‘em.

It will never be “consensus science” because it’s garbage being used as an excuse for socialism, green is red.
