    Hey…. no s**t, Sherlock!!!
    There are lies, damned lies and computer modelling scenarios.
    I thought he was very polite about the manipulation potential in the modelling!

    The Social Cost of Politicians is never negative.
    But I’m surprised there are only 3 models, what are all these social scientists doing with our money?

      Tim,
      the vast number of models have been homogenised into 3 types.
      These are
      1. those giving scary forecasts
      2. those giving very scary forecasts
      3. those giving extremely scary, indeed ghastly forecasts

      Only approved numbers are allowed to be used in forecasting the coming catastrophe. Any forecasts that fail to reach the estimated GULLIBLE POLITICIAN level are discarded.

    CO2 has beneficial effects. The planet greens. This is insanity.

    The insanity rests among those who actually believe that humans can mitigate the Earth’s climate with CO2…irrespective of cost-benefit analysis.

    I must be getting old, I couldn’t understand much of what he said because he spoke so fast. Was he on speed?

    Talking of insanity:

    Wind power for every home within 10 years, Boris Johnson to pledge

    Plan is part of ‘green industrial revolution’ that Prime Minister believes could create millions of jobs over the next decade

    Every home in Britain will be powered by wind farms within a decade, Boris Johnson is to pledge on Tuesday …

    There’s a pay wall, so I don’t know the details, but the headlines are enough to despair!

    Does he mean just a sliver of energy, each day, will be windmill generated? But that is true today, with just a smaller sliver.

    More (green) jobs? But they destroy even more real jobs, that create wealth.

    More subsidies? What part of industry will create the extra wealth to pay for it?

    Will these homes have a couple of EV vehicles? They will need extra electricity.

    And then there’s the extra heating after domestic gas supplies are removed.

    And the list goes on!!!

    Even Biden said he wouldn’t implement the Green New Deal!
