Cult Of Climastrology Ramping Up The Catastrophe Warnings Ahead Of Paris Meeting

Ah, Paris, the City Of Lights, the City Of Love, where 10,000 or so believers in pushing bigger and bigger centralized governmental control over everything along with more and more taxes man-caused climate change will take fossil fueled trips to socialize, eat lots of food, and discuss the Fate Of The World, quite a few of which will be paid for on the taxpayer dime. So, it’s time for more scaremongering

‘Catastrophe’ warnings as climate talks enter final stretch

Large swathes of New York and Shanghai could disappear under the waves and millions driven into poverty, fresh climate reports warned as ministers scrambled Monday for common ground weeks ahead of a crunch environmental summit.

If global warming continues on its present trajectory of 4 Celsius (7.2 Fahrenheit), rising sea levels will claim land inhabited by more than 600 million people, according to a survey by Climate Central, a US-based research group.

It’s taken over 160 years for the world’s temperature to rise a minuscule 1.4F. There’s been, at best, statistically insignificant warming over the last 12-26 years during the 3rd pause of the Modern Warm Period. Everything is consistent with a Holocene warm period. Except sea rise, which is below the level one should expect.

Such a rise would hit China the hardest, with around 145 million people living in coastal areas that would be submerged, the report warned.

Even if the Paris summit, which starts on November 30, succeeds in its goal of limiting temperature rises to 2 C, around 280 million people would find their homes underwater, forecast Climate Central.

Why yes, this is all about attempting to scare people about future doom in order to put more power and taxes in the hands of centralized government. They should switch these meetings to start on Halloween each year.

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, who is hosting the meeting, issued his own dire warnings as ministers gathered in the French capital for eleventh-hour negotiations.

“It is life on our planet itself which is at stake,” Fabius told journalists as ministers and climate envoys from 70 countries met for pre-summit talks to iron out tough political questions.

Life itself!!!!!! Doomed!!!! Yet, the carbon footprint for this meeting is humongous. Remember this one from the Club Of Rome?

“In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill….All these dangers are caused by human intervention….and thus the “real enemy, then, is humanity itself….believe humanity requires a common motivation, namely a common adversary in order to realize world government. It does not matter if this common enemy is “a real one or….one invented for the purpose.”

That was back in the 1970’s. And, of course, Progressives/Marxists/Socialists, along with the power hungry, immediately jumped on the bandwagon.

And, we will be treated to a plethora of CO2 concentration stories, such as

Earth-warming greenhouse gas concentrations hit record high in 2014: UN

….

WMO’s report, which does not measure emissions of greenhouse gases but rather their concentrations in the atmosphere, showed that CO2 had risen to 397.7 parts per million (ppm) in the atmosphere last year.

That was 143 percent of levels prior to the year 1750, WMO said, adding that CO2 concentrations would likely pass the ominous 400-ppm threshold in 2016.

Ominous. Is this journalism, or did Stephen King start writing climate change fables?

The rising CO2 concentrations are especially worrying, WMO said, since the gas in turn hikes levels of water vapour — itself a powerful, albeit short-lived, greenhouse gas.

This is because warmer air holds more moisture, the UN agency said, cautioning that “further increases in CO2 concentrations will lead to disproportionately high increases in thermal energy and warming from water vapour.”

Gotta love it. On one hand, they’re trying to say that water vapor, the #1 greenhouse gas, is a minimal GHG, but, on the other, it will be made worse because of CO2, an explicit way to link the two and bring water vapor under the banner of anthropogenic climate change. Of course, actual data disputes the increase in atmospheric water vapor.

Anyhow, that was the AFP. You have similar doom from CO2 stories by the AP and Reuters, among others, with lots and lots of news outlets picking up one of them.

If the science was so sound, there would be no reason for the dire stories of ominous doom. Of course, even if the science was sound, they’d still need the same scaremongering fables because of the policy prescriptions the Warmists are pushing to “solve” the issue.
