There was a post here the other day concerning some 1970s prognostication about 2 [degC] being the “Climate Change Tipping Point”. Turns out, that number was arrived at and offered by a gentleman with [wait for it] an ECONOMICS PhD!
The article went on to relate that the number was then carried forward in time until a recent “devastation report” was issued concerning what would happen at said “Tipping Point”. The devastation report was issued by [wait for it] THE WORLD BANK!
I think I see a pattern.
Oh, and never mind the fact that the UN assigned a railroad design engineer from an emerging third world region to head the IPCC.
