The shrill cries of the polyscienticians are ramping up. A host of new “revalations” have come up in the last few weeks as the world cools in the face of the unique opportunity our new socialist government was given. Beauties such as the warming antarctic and now the fact that global warming can’t be stopped. The timing is perfect to drum up support for the increased legislation promised by our US socialist leaders.
Irreversible, yup they said it, as in never to be reversed.
Changes in rain, temperature and sea level are largely irreversible for more than 1,000 years after carbon dioxide emissions are completely stopped, a study released today by federal scientists concludes.
The study, led by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration senior scientist Susan Solomon, appears in this week’s Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Booming voice – Never to be reversed sed sed.
Keep in mind, these are the same people who can’t tell us the weather next Monday. I have no idea how they determined this bull but it obviously isn’t realistic. The carbon of course would go away, what would keep the temp up, albedo? Like we have that so well nailed down, we can’t even measure temperature.
The rain decreases last not just a few decades but centuries, the authors said. Regional impacts include decreasing drinking water supplies, expanded deserts, more fires and other ecosystem changes.
Dry-season wheat and corn farms in regions of rain-fed farming, such as Africa, would also be affected.
Without considering melting glaciers and polar ice sheets, expansion of warming ocean could cause irreversible global average sea level rise of least 1.3 to 3.2 feet by the year 3000 if carbon dioxide peaks at 600 parts per million, and double that amount if it peaks at 1,000 parts per million.
Why do I read this stuff, whether you believe in AGW or not it is complete rubbish? Check out this comment, just to realize what planet this lady is from.
Geo-engineering to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere was not considered in the study because those methods are highly speculative, Solomon said.
And the doom predictions are worse than ever.
Coastal regions and small islands could be submerged for centuries, even if carbon dioxide emissions are completely stopped in the next 100 years, according to a new study from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The agency’s report appeared on Monday in the online edition of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Yup, it’s government. The only group with a clear horse in the global warming race. The message becomes even more clear when you consider this second group of articles promoted by the equally socialist associated press.
Rapidly reducing greenhouse gas emissions over the next decade to curb global warming could cost less than 1 percent of world gross domestic product by 2030, a report from management consultants McKinsey & Co said Monday.
“Globally financing and costs look manageable,” the report sponsored by environmental campaign group WWF said, putting the price at euro200 billion ($256 billion) to euro350 billion ($448 billion) annually by 2030 when they calculate total world GDP to hit euro60 trillion (US$77 trillion).
Taking action will mean additional investments of euro530 billion ($678 billion) in 2020 and euro810 billion ($1.04 billion) in 2030, the experts said — claiming much of these high upfront costs would be regained by energy savings later on.
“The net cost could end up below 1 percent of global GDP,” they said.
Below 1 percent … um you say – maybe below 1 percent. Sure guys, whom do I write the check to. At least we know the goal. – $$$ You’re not fooling us ladies and gentlemen, we’re here and there will come a time when you are recognized for what you are. While you work away on this business you will make money but think — Nobody remembers the scientist who argued with Galileo. Today’s science is incapable of determining the magnitude or consequences of global warming, the claims that it can are universally over-stated and nearly universally accompanied by political motive. If the reduced solar activity lately cools the earth, support for these overreaching foolhardy policy changes will plummet in the face of it.
