IPCC: It’s Far Worse Than It Was 4 Months Ago!

The IPCC has released a “new” report (the drafts have been out for a while) that says global warming will result in horrible droughts, massive flooding, extinction of species, dogs and cats living together– you know, Armageddon.

An international global warming conference approved a report Friday warning of dire threats to the Earth and to mankind – from increased hunger to the extinction of species – unless the world adapts to climate change and halts its progress.

I’m glad there’s 99% consensus on this.

Several scientists objected to the editing of the final draft by government negotiators but in the end agreed to compromises. However, some scientists vowed never to take part in the process again.

The climax of five days of negotiations was reached when the delegates removed parts of a key chart highlighting devastating effects of climate change that kick in with every rise of 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit, and in a tussle over the level of scientific reliability attached to key statements.

What’s this? Who dares question the Goracle? Quick, cut off all funding for these objectors and refuse to publish any of their findings for questioning Consensus!

But my mind on the seriousness of the issue was changed by the variety of apolitical groups that commented on the report.

“This is a glimpse into an apocalyptic future,” the Greenpeace environmental group said of the final report.

“The urgency of this report prepared by the world’s top scientists should be matched by an equally urgent response from governments,” said Hans Verolme, director of the global climate change program of the World Wide Fund for Nature. “Doing nothing is not an option,” he said.

What’s more amazing is what will happen to North America.

North America will experience more severe storms with human and economic loss, and cultural and social disruptions. It can expect more hurricanes, floods, droughts, heat waves and wildfires, it said. Coasts will be swamped by rising sea levels. In the short term, crop yields may increase by 5 to 20 percent from a longer growing season, but will plummet if temperatures rise by 7.2 F.

Africa will be hardest hit. By 2020, up to 250 million people are likely to exposed to water shortages. In some countries, food production could fall by half, it said.

Nothing says scientific certainly like the words “if” and “could”.

Once again we see people using model to predict doom and gloom. What’s worse is that they’re appling “average” temperture increases from the globe to specific climates and then predicting disaster in those climates, although the greatest warming has been in dry, winter zones like Siberia, and areas high in humidity have seen little variation in their temperatures.

There is a solution to global warming– a concentrated release of sulfites into the air to force aerosol cooling. But that would be air pollution and it would be bad, right? But increasing temperatures seem pretty bad. So what’s worse? Pollution or global warming? If they do by the DDT model, pollution is worse and we should safeguard the environment despite the cost of millions of human lives.

    Look at this video: http://video.google.ca/videoplay?docid=2332531355859226455&q=global+warming+swindle

    or search for “global warming swindle”

    So you’re gonna focus on a few scientists who object? Wouldn’t it be better to take this seriously and take it on? Or should we just blow it off and hope they’re wrong? Talk about being short sighted.

    Maybe a better solution is to pray to god and hope he saves the Christians…and if you believe that I have a tooth from when I was 9 maybe the tooth fairy will gimmie a buck for it….lemmings…

    Shooflypie:

    Don’t get scared. You have to remember that these guys get their funding so long as people are wetting themselves in fear.

    Computer modeling is little better than fortune telling. Every model is set up with certain “assumptions” which account for variables that cannot be accounted with reasonable data. The assumptions all center around a general assumption that trends of the past few years will continue at their present pace.

    Considering these guys couldn’t predict an El Nino last season suggests their data is speculative at best.

    Also considering the anti-AGW arguments are coming from respected climatologists and the bulk of the pro-AGW arguments are coming from politicians should help you understand some of the hype surrounding global warming better.

    El nino is far harder to predict than average warming figures.
