Greta’s Fears Of Climate Change Are Baseless

A very good summary of the unfounded fears about climate change. It’s fairly generalised, but is ideal for passing onto friends who are not interested in details:

    I thought it was excellent and I’ve posted it on a couple of groups on facebook.

    The failed prophesies are the proof of the pudding for me. Faced with these, real scientists would go back to the drawing board and rethink their hypothesis. Doubling down and making even more absurd predictions than the ones that you were 100% wrong about last time is hardly scientific is it?

      But it certainly keeps the grant money coming in to find more things the detached elite can ban to make our life more miserable.

      As with the cretinous “things are happening sooner/worser than we forecast” claim the BBC so loves, which proves just as much that the models are wrong. Yet the BBC think it amkes the models righter.

      But its the sceptics that deny science.

    The fact remains that these young people are climate-change puppets. It has become a battle of the puppeteers. Those with the facts versus those who distort them.

    Why not send this to Sarah Knapton at the Telegraph. She recently wrote a reasonable summary of some of the flaws in the alarmist arguments. There is also Andrew Neil at the BBC. He absolutely tore to bits a girl from Extinction Rebellion. They may just decide to do a bit more.

    I’m sure the Grantham Institute’s attack dog Bob Ward will have something to say about this blasphemous web site.

    Tangentially relevant, today’s beeb had an article about all the protests of the year. The article mentioned that there was even a protest in Antarctica. Its link led me to this:

    Greta Thunberg’s speech continues… here are some of the highlights:

    “We are striking today in over 150 countries on all continents, including Antarctica.

    “We are not in school today and this time we are not alone – we have some adults who are not at work today either. And why? Because this is an emergency. Our house is on fire. And it’s not just the young people’s house. We all live here, it affects all of us. We will not just stand aside and watch.

    What was this strike in Antarctica, of which I knew nothing? There was surely no school on the White Continent. Interwebs search led me to USA Today:

    In Antarctica, a group of nine researchers took part in the protest, despite being thousands of miles away in the snowy tundra. Kim Bernard, an ecologist and biological oceanographer, shared a photo on Twitter.

    “It’s time to rise before it’s too late. We support you, climate strikers,” Bernard wrote. “With love and hope from Antarctica.”

    As far as I can tell, the school “strikes” are nothing more than what used to be called “truancy”. A strike is removal of a useful service. But the kids are not providing the service here: they are consuming it, gratis. Something that strikers in Antarctica might want to bear in mind – it isn’t likely the removal of their labour was accompanied by a noticeable decline in productivity.

      The beeb has been relentless Climate & wild fires today.
      Even the ausie PM has capitulated and mention climate.

        He hasn’t capitulated, although the BBC reported it rather like that – what do you expect!

        What he said was more nuanced. Essentially what any skeptic would say. Climate change is real (has been since the earth existed) but “….the direct connection to any single fire event is not a credible suggestion to make….” “The Australian government’s climate change policy would not change despite the national fire crisis.” [Quotes from the Telegraph].

        A positive IOD [aka Indian Nino] usually causes droughts in Australia. Guess what the recent state has been – unusually positive, love to see the proof that man’s CO2 caused that, rather than natural random weather variation.

    This should be compulsory viewing in every school, starting with the teachers.

        Presumably if NATO countries divert spending onto useless climate gestures they will probably do so at the expense of defence. It seems to be the case in the UK.

    The world has witnessed child crusades before, see history and what became of the pursuit, failure and them – it wasn’t good.

    Paris Accord destroyed! (my latest thinking)
    “COP 25: Paris Accord destroyed”
    https://www.cfact.org/2019/12/19/cop-25-paris-accord-destroyed/

    “Action Now!” radicalism has destroyed the slow moving, consensus based Paris Agreement. It is not just COP 25 that failed; the UN climate change machinery has collapsed. This is good news, even though the reason is bad news.

    I have been writing about the climate alarmism movement tearing itself apart for months now. For example here.

    The new radicalism is at war with the establishment moderates. This great gulf between radicals and moderates hit the COP 25 summit in Madrid with a vengeance. These annual summits are normally protracted exercises in compromise among the almost 200 nations represented. Not this time.

    In Madrid the Action Now! radicals would not even consider compromise. Their extremism then caused the moderates to take hard line positions as well, so the COP stalled out and failed to act on any significant issue. That what the radicals demand is impossible did not help. The negotiating machinery ground to a noisy halt.

    So now we have two very different versions of the alarmist rhetoric and a lot of people on each side. I call them the “Action Now!” hysterics (Greta, XR, etc.) and the moderates. The Paris Accord reflects the slow moving moderate view. It turns out that a lot of national delegations now take the hysterical view, especially the small island states and the Africans (both of which stand to make the most money).

    You could see the breakdown coming on, as Madrid was hyped as the “action COP” when it was nothing of the sort. Even the COP leaders took part in this foolish rhetoric. Yet the sorts of radical national actions being called for were simply not on the agenda. I doubt the moderate negotiators on the ground in Madrid had the authority to even consider the radical’s hysterical demands for immediate drastic action.

    Nor is such radical action on upcoming COP agendas. It is not part of the Paris Accord process and therein lies the problem for the Action Now! radicals. They demand what cannot happen.

    The hysterics are calling for radical action at next year’s Glasgow COP at the latest. This is highly unlikely, to say the least.

    In fact the harassed moderates in Madrid pointed out that most countries, including all of the major emitters, do not have to file new emission reduction plans until 2030. China and India, the first and fourth biggest emitters, have already said that is their intent. Additionally, their plans allow for unlimited emission increases until 2030, which is intolerable for the Action Now! hysterics.

    America, the number two emitter, is certainly not going to file a radical action plan. U.S. membership in the Paris fiasco officially ends before the 2020 Glasgow COP begins in November.

    If the Action Now! radicals continue their intransigence then the Paris Accord is essentially dead. This is almost certain to happen. Ironically the Paris Agreement has been killed by the irrational fear of climate change that spawned it in the first place. Is that cool or what?

    The death of the silly Paris Accord is fine by me. My only real concern is that the hysterics might somehow do real damage. So far this seems unlikely, given that what they are demanding is impossible.

    This is why I cherish the hysterics. They are wrecking the climate scare political movement. It is like I am fighting an enemy force and suddenly it is having an endless civil war. I am all for that.

    A wild year looms!
