United Nations Report On Climate Change

October 13, 2018

Michael has passed through and gone out into the North Atlantic and is disintegrated. We can relax and feel safe for a while,  confident that we survived and can ride out future storms.  That is what I thought unti I read about a United Nations scientific panel report that was published on October 8. The report was from an Intergovernmental panel on climate change. This report does not have the candy coating that prior climate change  reports have had.

This  report is much more pessimistic than prior reports. According to sources, it is much more honest and realistic. There is no holding back or displaying the facts in order to prevent panic as did prior published reports by various scientific studies. The report gives s pretty sober prediction of the future of climate change. It also lays out some plans that we can go to reduce the effects. But it says these plans must be implemented beginning as soon as possible and will entail great and fundamental changes in lifestyles, energy use and basic structure of society and civilation. The lives of hundreds of millions of people are under risk in the next century unless these changes are made start immediately. We don’t have much time.

The reports states that if we continue as we are that sea levels will rise as much as two hundred feet by the next century.  This will be devestating. Weather system s will change and severely change our way of like and possibly civilization itself.

The panel warns that we should respond with a massive effort similar to the effort we made in World War II in order to prevent the expected rise in temperature.

The time for relaxing and feeling safe and confident about our future and the future of our children, grandchildren and future generations is over.

  3. The UN report is fraud and extortion. October 8, 2018: Professor Richard Lindzen said the UN IPCC report released this week had reduced the alleged tipping point from 2C to 1.5C because there had been no significant warming for 20 years. “Warming of any significance ceased about 20 years ago, and 2C warming was looking increasingly unlikely.” Professor Lindzen provided a lecture for the Global Warming Policy Foundation in London, England at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. Lindzen is an “American atmospheric physicist known for his work in the dynamics of the middle atmosphere, atmospheric tides, and ozone photochemistry. He has published more than 200 scientific papers and books. From 1983 until his retirement in 2013, he was Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Meteorology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He was a lead author of Chapter 7, “Physical Climate Processes and Feedbacks,” of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Third Assessment Report on climate change.

    Professor Lindzen is speaking to a non-technical audience and explains his terms well.

    For those who don’t have the time to watch the full lecture, here is a 2 minute excerpt.

    Educate yourself. OCTOBER 5, 2018 – More than 100 scholars from 12 countries have issued a report contending “the global war on fossil fuels … was never founded on sound science or economics” and urging the world’s policymakers to “acknowledge this truth and end that war.

    • I looked this guy up . He is getting funding from Peabody Coal. He also has a reputation as being a contrarian who likes to take positions opposing the mainstream. Does not seem like a reliable source of information. It sounds to me like an example of what money can buy.
