We’re Perilously Close To A Permanent Crossing Into The Global Warming Danger Zone Or Something

Another day, another hyper-alarmist, hyper-ventilating missive about Hotcoldwetdry from the Usual Suspects at the Washington Post, Chris Mooney and Brady Dennis, with a headline that rather undermines the entire case

How Earth itself has dramatically upped the stakes for the Paris climate accord

If it’s the Earth itself, doesn’t that make the case for mostly natural global warming? Anyhow, we’re all doomed, ya know

Representatives from more than 150 countries will gather at the United Nations on Friday to officially sign a global accord aimed at slashing greenhouse gas emissions and slowing climate change. But in the four months since that historic pact was negotiated in Paris, a drumbeat of grim scientific findings has underscored that staving off the worst consequences of global warming may take far more aggressive actions.

The first three months of 2016 were the warmest on record in 136 years — by large margins. The massive Greenland ice sheet has melted this spring to an extent that scientists say they’ve never seen this early. New research suggested that if high levels of emissions continue unabated, sea levels could rise by nearly twice as much as expected by the end of this century. A global coral bleaching event fueled by warm seas is turning some once-majestic reefs into ghostly underwater graveyards.

The list goes on and on.

“The strongest hurricane on record for both the Northern and Southern Hemisphere, unprecedented continuing drought in California, the warmest start to a year that we’ve ever seen, on the heels of what was the warmest full year on record for the globe,” ticked off Michael Mann, a climate researcher at Pennsylvania State University. Such developments, though driven in part by strong El Niño conditions, are a “reminder of how perilously close we are now to a permanent crossing into the global-warming danger zone,” he said. “We are at a critical juncture when it comes to preserving our climate.”

The warming is mostly driven by El Nino. But, that quote by Michael “Robust Debate/Hockey Schtick” Mann is priceless. As for preserving our climate

Regardless of one’s opinions on the degree to which climate change is occurring, regulations associated with the Paris accord will have no meaningful impact on the planet’s temperature.

Even if the government closed the doors to every businesses and CO2-emitting activity in the U.S., there would be less than two-tenths of a degree Celsius reduction in global temperatures.

Even Kerry admitted during the negotiations last December that:

“If all the industrial nations went down to zero emissions— remember what I just said, all the industrial emissions went down to zero emissions— it wouldn’t be enough, not when more than 65 percent of the world’s carbon pollution comes from the developing world.”

Of course, Mooney and Dennis argue, as do the rest of the Cult of Climastrology, that the super HISTORIC Paris accord is just a starting place, they want more done. But, not enough to advocate for all Believers to practice what they preach. They want everyone else involved by force of government. What they cannot do, though, is prove beyond a shadow of a doubt scientifically that the current warm period is mostly/solely caused by the activities of Mankind.
