Schizoid HuffPo ‘The End Is Nigh’ And ‘It’s Too Late’

 

Funny.  On HuffPo’s “Climate Change” front page they have links to two stories.

 


Nations Stand Before ‘Climate Fiscal Cliff’           


UN Report: Passed The Point Of Averting Worst Effects Of Climate Change

The stories are as one would imagine.  The cliff hanging article has an hilariously stupid line.  

As nearly 200 countries meet in oil-and-gas-rich Qatar for annual talks starting Monday on slowing global warming, one of the main challenges will be raising climate aid for poor countries at a time when budgets are strained by financial turmoil.

Slowing global warming?  How much slower do they want?

This coincides well with the “It’s too late” article…..

Global greenhouse-gas emissions already have passed the point where the worst effects of global warming could be averted, and they are still rising, according to the third annual United Nations report on the so-called emissions gap.

Yes, the awful effects of the global temps not changing for over 15 years.  Imbeciles.  

So, which is it?  Is it too late or are we on the edge?  Or, is this all a bunch of hyperbolic BS, in an effort to centralize control of the world’s energy use and rationalize a need for a global tax?  I’d say it’s the latter.

    It is TO LATE to stop the hazardous effects of CLIMATE CHANGE! It was to late a few BILLION years ago when the Earth first experienced CLIMATE/ WEATHER.

    World grain production is outpacing population growth so the average living standard should be increasing. http://www.potashcorp.com/industry_overview/2011/agriculture/12/

    Year UN est.
    (millions) Difference USCB est.
    (millions) Difference
    2000 6,123 – 6,090 –
    2010 6,896 773 6,852 763

    12% population growth according to UN and 20% growth in grain production according to USDA from 2000 to 2010. This sounds good to me and more people in the world comming out of poverty.

      Yeh, I think that is what is bothering the totalitarian nutters. These are the worst effects of climate change? ;)

      Add this from yesterday:

      Another Kick in the Teeth for Malthus

      Today we bring you something straight out of a science fiction novel: Scientists have found a way to produce nearly unlimited amounts of food in the desert, fueled by desalinated salt water and sunlight. It sounds like a pipe dream, but it’s not—it’s already happening in Australia and Qatar, and may soon spread further if these early trials deliver on their initial promise.

      A 75m line of motorised parabolic mirrors that follow the sun all day focuses its heat on a pipe containing a sealed-in supply of oil. The hot oil in turn heats nearby tanks of seawater pumped up from a few metres below ground – the shore is only 100m away. The oil brings the seawater up to 160C and steam from this drives turbines providing electricity. Some of the hot water from the process heats the greenhouse through the cold desert nights, while the rest is fed into a desalination plant that produces the 10,000 litres of fresh water a day needed to keep the plants happy.

      Food will not be a problem, only will is.

    I am willing to take their word for it. So there is no point in reducing GHG’s, and no point in taxing “carbon”. What we need now is lots of cheap energy to ready the world for armageddon.

    Have a nice day. :)
