Alan Carlin: None of the climate alarmist apocalypses have occurred or are even possible

Earth and climate – an ongoing controversy

Lack of predictive success is a strong warning sign that something is amiss in the world of climate science in general and its modelling in particular.

The climate alarmists have long tried to sell their apocalyptic scam by claiming that their policies will avoid catastrophic increases in global temperatures, writes Alan Carlin.

The Daily Caller has recently inventoried some of the widely publicized such climate apocalypses predicted over the last 30 years by examining 12 of them.

The alarmists’ 12 apocalyptic predictions have proved uniformly wrong. That’s zero percent correct.

Yet many people, often liberal in their politics, support the climate alarmists, the authors of these apocalyptic climate forecasts.

But even if only half of their apocalyptic predictions had managed to be correct, there would have been only six correctly predicted apocalypses.

So it appears to be very likely that there must be something wrong with the alarmists’ ideas, not just random prediction errors.

    Tidalgate: Climate Alarmists Caught Faking Sea Level Rise

    by JAMES DELINGPOLE 6 Dec 2017

    Alarmist scientists have been caught red-handed tampering with raw data in order to exaggerate sea level rise.
    . . .
    When alarmists in charge of surface temperature datasets make dishonest adjustments to exaggerate the appearance of global warming, it looks like corruption.

    When alarmists in the entirely separate field of sea level measurement make precisely the same sort of dishonest adjustments in order to accord with the same global warming narrative, it starts to look like a conspiracy.

    Reblogged this on Climatism and commented:
    “The alarmists’ 12 apocalyptic predictions have proved uniformly wrong. That’s zero percent correct.”

    WITH so much of the public’s money spent (Trillion upon trillions) on “Climate Change” aka “Global Warming” aka “Climate Disruption” aka “Climate Crisis”, any sane person would naturally conclude that there is an actual “Climate Crisis”.

    HOWEVER, outside of overheated U.N. climate models and daily hysteria from the sycophant lamestream media, there is still no tangible “Climate Crisis”.

    THE name change from “global warming” to “climate change” is perhaps the biggest giveaway. Owing to the peer-reviewed, scientific fact that the planet stopped warming around 20 years ago.

    ENTER “climate change” – hot, cold, wet, dry, flood, drought, blizzard – it’s all your fault and you and your “unsustainable” lifestyles are ‘changing’ the weather – whatever that means.

    AND, what is the mythical perfect climate that alarmists want? What if we stop ALL hydrocarbon based energy tomorrow and there’s a hurricane next year? Or what happens if Australia has a heatwave? How many days should it last? How much less or more rain is better if we get serious and live in caves? Will the weather be eternally idyllic for modern cave-dwelling?

    WILL the pontificators of the media driven climate hysteria; DiCaprio, Al Gore, Obama, Bill Nye, The Pope et al live in caves too?

    CLEARLY they won’t. But why not? After all, there is a genuine “climate crisis” right? Or at least they tell us that there is. Everyday.

    EITHER way, cave or no cave, Leonardo DiCaprio’s new island development is a serious death trap according to what he preaches atop the U.N. pulpit. Whoever advised him to build on an island when sea levels are meant to rise by 10-100 feet by 2100 according to experts like Leo.

    MAYBE, just maybe he’s lying his ass off to feed the biggest scientific fraud ever perpetrated upon mankind.

    At least Trump has seen through the science fiction, but most other Western leaders seem taken in by it.

    Time for the Ecoloons to declare “Victory”in their battle to prevent “Run Away Global Warming”.
    They have succeeded in saving the World, that danger is passed and move on to their next jihad.

    “taken in by it” or just stand to profit from it?

    I see three modes for the gain:

    1) Investments in things just before using government power to mandate them.

    2) “Donations” from the like of Soros and his “foundations” ($Millions to $Billions).

    3) The EU is short of oil resources, this puts their industry in a disadvantaged state. IF they can force other economies to abandon cheap oil and coal power, it improved the EU relative competitive position.

    I see little downside for the leadership of most countries in embracing a system that would suck $100 Billion PER YEAR out of the USA and “redistribute” it to them ( UN Agenda 21 goal, Paris Climate “accord” text).

    If you just “follow the money” goals, it’s clear that “taken in” is not so much needed as “hoodwinking the rubes” into paying the vig… (vigorish or cut of the action)

    We should remember this massive push to demonize CO2 and establish Carbon Credit trading was hatched up and promoted by the minions of Enron Corporation to be their permanent gold mine. With Enron’s premature financial collapse these people scattered into organizations around the world that were set up to take advantage of that promotion effort and the resultant incentives…pg

    EMS – the EU is busy jacking up its own energy costs by imposing absurd CO2 targets. It can only end badly in economic terms.
