Another IPCC warning: More sci-fi
Its “science” increasingly has come under fire. And the court of public opinion more and more is not on its side. So what's the foundering United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to do? Why, go for broke, of course. After all, the world should be very, very, very, VERY afraid.
On Sunday, the panel lamented that while not enough is being done to combat supposed “man-made” climate change ( n é, “global warming”), all is not lost — if only super-duper drastic measures are implemented now, now, NOW!
The “scientists” of global warming religion now insist that, even despite mitigating efforts, global greenhouse gas emissions have accelerated drastically since the turn of the century. And to limit the increase in the “global mean temperature” to 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit, they say greenhouse emissions would have to be reduced by up to 70 percent by 2050 and by up to 100 percent by the end of the century.
By golly, the U.N. panel even foresees the need to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
Perhaps the IPCC soon will offer up maps of inhabitable caves by region for the coming apocalypse to be followed in short order by Armageddon — not from “global warming” but from sociopolitically motivated moves to “save the planet” while denuding the Earth of plant life, destroying economies and, with it, mankind itself.
Global warming “science” long ago lost all sense of proportion to reality. The latest IPCC entreaties should be treated for what they really are — science fiction.
