Skip to comments.The Depravity of Climate-Change Denial
Posted on 11/26/2018 7:50:07 PM PST by EdnaMode
The Trump administration is, it goes without saying, deeply anti-science. In fact, its anti-objective reality. But its control of the government remains limited; it didnt extend far enough to prevent the release of the latest National Climate Assessment, which details current and expected future impacts of global warming on the United States.
True, the report was released on Black Friday, clearly in the hope that it would get lost in the shuffle. The good news is that the ploy didnt work.
The assessment basically confirms, with a great deal of additional detail, what anyone following climate science already knew: Climate change poses a major threat to the nation, and some of its adverse effects are already being felt. For example, the report, written before the latest California disaster, highlights the growing risks of wildfire in the Southwest; global warming, not failure to rake the leaves, is why the fires are getting ever bigger and more dangerous.
But the Trump administration and its allies in Congress will, of course, ignore this analysis. Denying climate change, no matter what the evidence, has become a core Republican principle. And its worth trying to understand both how that happened and the sheer depravity involved in being a denialist at this point.

The depraved stupidity of Krugman.
I see the NYT finally got up to speed on the latest DEM talking point memo.
Solar cycle denial is a thousand times worse.
No one is denying that the climate in different areas around the planet is changing.
What we are denying is the claim that if we give all our money to the ruling elite, that they can then keep it from changing.
>>The Trump administration is, it goes without saying, deeply anti-science.
Ask this dood about when life begins. Does passing through the birth canal become “a magic transformation”? Are c-section babies not really alive?
Ask this dood about chromosomes and men and women.
Ask this dood how global climate change causes earthquakes and arson.
Sure it did. It's only Monday, and the news is already gone. Only the HuffPost is still talking about it
Is there consensus on which region of the world should have “the” optimal growing season? Lower or higher temps will affect other regions.
If we are going to try to set “the” temperature, what is the optimal temp we should aim for?
How do we hope to nudge is 0.1% higher or lower? What happens if our attempt to nudge it 0.1% actually moves is 0.2 or 0.4%? wouldn’t that be disastrous man-made global climate change too???
Is Krugman a climate scientist?
Yes. They practice selective science
The end is near, we're all going to die. Unless, that is, we empower government to control more of the economy and our lives. It's a standard trick of the left - predict doom and gloom in the future in an attempt to scare the Hell out of people while promising to avoid it if we let them get their way. While this could apply to nearly anything Democrats are pushing on any given day, this week it's about global cooling. I mean, global warming. Er, scratch that, climate change...
Warmists are fascists pervert in science for their depraved ends...the primary one is control. Frauds and charlatans who worship goebbels...and themselves.

26 Nov: Climate Home: Draft G20 statement waters down Paris climate commitment
Argentinian official says ambiguity over the Paris Agreement is needed to avoid a split with the US, days before critical UN climate talks begin
By Karl Mathiesen
The document, seen by CHN, is the latest version of a text that may change before it is released when leaders meet later this week.
Unlike recent G20 statements, it declines to give full-throated support to the Paris Agreement, simply acknowledging the different circumstances, including those of countries determined to implement the Paris Agreement.
In a nod to those countries defending their coal industries, the text prepared by the Argentinian presidency says there are varied energy choices and different possible national pathways...
There is no mention of a major scientific report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which was released in October; nor any direct reference to the Cop24 climate talks, which start in Katowice, Poland just a day after the meeting ends on Saturday...

26 Nov: VIDEO: BBC: Trump on climate change report: ‘I don’t believe it’
US President Donald Trump has cast doubt on a report by his own government warning of devastating effects from climate change.
Asked outside the White House about the findings that unchecked global warming would wreak havoc on the US economy, he said: “I don’t believe it.”...
Mr Trump said other countries must take measures to cut their emissions.
“You’re going to have to have China and Japan and all of Asia and all these other countries, you know, it [the report] addresses our country,” he said.
“Right now we’re at the cleanest we’ve ever been and that’s very important to me.
“But if we’re clean, but every other place on Earth is dirty, that’s not so good.
“So I want clean air, I want clean water, very important.”...

plus, as Krugman well knows, the National Climate Assesment 2018 report is not a Trump Admin report:
24 Nov: Voice of America: White House Says Dire Climate Report Based on ‘Extreme Scenario’
White House Bureau Chief Steve Herman contributed to this report.
White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters noted that work on the assessment began under the administration of former U.S. president Barack Obama and uses multiple modeling scenarios to assess the effects of climate change. But the report issued Friday, according to Walters, relies too heavily on the worst-case-scenario.
“The report is largely based on the most extreme scenario, which contradicts long-established trends by assuming that, despite strong economic growth that would increase greenhouse gas emissions, there would be limited technology and innovation, and a rapidly expanding population,” Walters said in a statement.
She said the next climate assessment, which will be prepared over the next four years, will “provide for a more transparent and data-driven process that includes fuller information on the range of potential scenarios and outcomes.”
Walters also pointed out that, since 2005, carbon dioxide emissions related to energy production in the U.S. have declined 14 percent, while global emissions continue to rise...
