Let’s Spend Trillions Getting Ready For Globull Warming, Why, Exactly?

We hear all the dire warnings, we read all the unhinged predictions, and they tell us we need to spend money hand over fist to stop global warming, er, climate change, um, sudden climate disruption, oh, whatever they are calling it today. Nowadays, they tell is globull warming will cause it to get high, cold, wet, dry, even snowy and icy. Bitterly cold. And it will be bitterly cold, the coldest week of the year so far, in the Northeast and north Midwest, starting this week. Alarmists usually like to make their predictions for 50 or 100 years out, and, there is a big reason why the alarmists do not want to make specific predictions about what is going to happen currently

Ever more alarming facts are emerging to show how Brisbane’s floods were made infinitely worse by cockeyed decisions inspired by the obsession of the Australian authorities with global warming. Inevitably, the country’s warmist lobby has been voluble in claiming that such a “freak weather event” (as the BBC called it) is a consequence of man-made climate change. But far from being an unprecedented “freak event”, the latest flood was nearly a foot below the level of one in 1974 and 10 feet below the record set in 1893.

For years, Australia’s warmists have been advising the authorities that the danger posed to the country by global warming is not floods but droughts: not too much rain but too little. One result, in Brisbane, was a relaxation of planning rules, to allow building on areas vulnerable to flooding in the past. As long ago as 1999, this was seen as potentially disastrous by an expert Brisbane River Flood Study (which was ignored and for years kept secret). Instead of investing in its flood defences, Australia spent $13 billion on desalination plants. (Queensland’s was recently mothballed because of the excess of rain.)

The warmists looked into their crystal balls and said “Drought.” So, Australia planned for that. And they were not only wrong, they are culpable in the deaths of all the people who had been left with the decisions to plan for “globull warming will cause drought.”

The warmists have been telling us to plan for warmer winters. Good thing most cities and states, and people, did not plan for that this winter, or last. I support wind power, but, is it really the best thing to rely on wind turbines which freeze when globull warming doesn’t co-operate with the computer models? Not that this winter, or the past few, have co-operated with the computer models. Nor have the past 15 years, which have been been above the average of the years during the Little Ice Age, granted, but, have also been relatively stable, when they should have continued to rise, according to the theory hypothesis raving delusion that rising CO2 is the only thing that affects Earth’s climate. And, before someone says “2010 is tied for the hottest year ever!!!!!!!1!!!!”, consider that the NDIC’s own website refutes that.

I doubt the computer models predicted snow in Australia during the summer. Yet, the Warmists want us to spend trillions on solutions based on ever-changing looks into their crystal ball. Tell you what: once they actually make predictions as to what the climate will do this year, next year, and the next decade, along with living the lives they say everyone else should live, the warmists should be ignored. They cost everyone else money, and put people’s lives in danger.
