I was once an AGW (Now CAGW) believer, until I realised that 2.04 + 2.4 just didn’t make 4.5.
There is no empirical evidence that CO2 causes Glowbull warming.
“To reduce the earth’s temperature one degree with CO2 abatement would require an investment equivalent to 130 years GDP of the entire planet, or more than $4,000,000,000,000,000 (4 quadrillion dollars).” Peter Smith
Science is what got us to this level of civilisation, but no one wants to blame science for the problems they believe have been caused by this level of civilisation.
To quote Dr. Shermer: Skepticism is not a position; it’s a process.
If you don’t know what AGW is, you shouldn’t be here.
“Denialist” is a malignant tumour that grows only inside the minds of indoctrinated climate catastrophists.
“I’m not sure which is more arrogant, to say we caused (global warming) or that we can fix it.”
AGW proponents must all believe in homeopathy if they think an extra 120 ppm CO2 above pre-industrial level can affect planetary climate.
“The 1997 to ’98 El Niño event was a trigger for the changes in the Pacific, and I think that’s very probably the beginning of the hiatus,”
“We have a vested interest in creating panic, because then money will flow to climate science.”
“If you could vote for a change in climate, you would always want a warmer one,” says Philip Stott, emeritus professor of biogeography at the University of London. “Cold is nearly always worse for everything – the economy, agriculture, disease, biodiversity.”
“The IPCC was an ill considered concept. They never allowed for failure.”
Anyone who has followed the Glowbull warming discussion for a few years will have noted that the positions of the goal posts are regularly being changed by climate catastrophists.
We were once being told about tipping points due shortly.
Most of those have expired, or couldn’t possibly happen in time.
Hansen’s “scenarios” A B & C, are all BS.
Most of the dire warnings have been pushed forward to a later date.
Even the IPCC now state that we have until 2100 to stop using fossil fuels.
Oceans may release the missing heat in a year or two, or a decade or two.
Nothing is happening “Faster than was expected.”
Nothing is “Worse than was expected.”
Instead of rushing forward blindly, shouting fire, when will the climate catastrophists admit they simply don’t know, as the sensible climatologists readily admit?
