DECC’s Dumb Global Calculator Model

Kevin Marshall demonstrates the fraudulence of DECC’s new online CO2 reduction model. YOUR money is used to propagandise and tax YOU with fraudulent pseudoscience. Use your influence as a voter on May 7th to end this nonsense. UKIP will abolish DECC, saving the taxpayer £9billion a year by 2020.

On the 28th January 2015, the DECC launched a new policy emissions tool, so everyone can design policies to save the world from dangerous climate change. I thought I would try it out. By simply changing the parameters one-by-one, I found that the model is both massively over-sensitive to small changes in input parameters and is based on British data. From the model, it is possible to entirely eliminate CO2 emissions by 2100 by a combination of three things – reducing the percentage travel in urban areas by car from 43% to 29%; reducing the average size of homes to 95m2 from 110m2 today; and for everyone to go vegetarian.

The DECC website says

Cutting carbon emissions to limit global temperatures to a 2°C rise can be achieved while improving living standards, a new online tool shows.

The world can eat well, travel more, live in more comfortable…

    British taxpayers are (partly) paying for this tripe. DECC and its like are trying to brainwash the hard of thinking into believing in their climate fairy stories.

    A few deluded types might be impressed but most of the rest of the world won’t even notice it.

    Meanwhile, a large part of the UK’s gas storage system is being dismantled.

    My initial findings of the Global Calculator were that it was too sensitive to policy changes. This policy sensitivity goes both ways. If you jack up the fossil fuel emissions to the higher levels or scrap renewables, the resulting warming is off the scale.

    Oldbrew: do we not completely fund DECC and every other part of UK Government?
