We Only Have Two Decades To Stop The Coming Climate Hell
Whew! I thought there was an actual danger (if you hit the paywall, try searching the article on Google or Yahoo or something. That’s the way I get in)
The world has a two decade window to build an efficient, low carbon society or risk being “locked-in” to a pathway towards dangerous levels of climate change, authors of the latest UN-backed climate change report have warned.
Working group three (WGIII) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will on Sunday release its latest report, calling for a fundamental shift in global investment from fossil fuels to renewable energy and other green technologies, as a means of tackling escalating climate change risks.
Which amuses me to no end, since all these folks working for the IPCC, along with most “climate change” groups, use vast amounts of fossil fuels to get to and from their constant “climate change” meetings, symposiums, speeches, conferences, and demonstrations.
Twenty years is great, because Desmond Tutu gave us only 15! And James Hansen only gave us 4 back in 2009. Al Gore predicting climate doom in 10 years (that was 2007). And there so many examples of wacko-enviro and climate alarmist doomsaying. Remember the Population Bomb? Fail. How about the claims of the Arctic being ice free? Fail. Schoolkids in Britain won’t know what snow looks like? Fail. A 2 degree rise in global temps by 2010? Fail. Australia being a desert hell? Fail. Now they claim that Australia will be a flooded hell. Claims of hurricane activity like the 2005 season being the new normal. Fail. Mass starvation as food crops fail. Fail. Mass migrations of people causing constant war. Fail. Seriously, are there any Warmist predictions that are coming true?
Infrastructure being built over the next two decade will determine the shape of society and the global economy at the end of this century, so it is essential to ensure the right technologies are put in place, Benoit Lefevre, lead author of the IPCC WGIII chapter on renewable energy and fossil fuel investments, told BusinessGreen.
“Time is crucial – we have two decades of opportunity,” he said. “The world is urbanising and the cities we are going to have at the end of the century are being built right now. All the infrastructure will be developed during the next 10 to 20 years. Here we have a clear opportunity to do it in a smart, efficient, and low carbon way – so it’s really a matter of acting now.”
When in doubt, follow the money. And the Progressive notion of Big Government
“To put us on the right track… we need to have a combination of push and pull factors,” he said. “On one end we need developed countries to create a set of institutional arrangements, to adopt the right loans and regulations to effectively mobilise climate finance. On the other hand, we need developing countries to put in place the right set of policies, institutions, etc to attract this private and public finance.” (snip)
“The report calls for an ‘all hands on deck’ approach – there are roles for the private and public sector,” Levin said. “This is a problem of the global commons and every individual and every company and every country needs to be part of the solution.”
Which is funny, because Warmists don’t practice what they preach, they just want Everyone Else to be forced to follow their dogma. You can feel the fascism. In fact, one of the lines in the final draft summary reads “Effective mitigation will not be achieved if individual agents advance their own interests independently” (via Climate Depot). This is about reducing liberty and forcing everyone to comply with the cult of climate change.
Oh, and this is the current climate hell
Again, it’s actually 8 months, approaching 9 months, but you get the idea from the graph.
