Climate nonsense on stilts has gone way too far. Time to kick the stilts away.

Science Matters

Recently published in Nature is a comment article Why setting a climate deadline is dangerous by
Shinichiro Asayama, Rob Bellamy, Oliver Geden, Warren Pearce & Mike Hulme.

H/T Robert Walker, who explains in his post at Science 2.0 Should IPCC Openly Challenge ‘Only 12 Years To Save Planet’ Deadline Rhetoric? Excerpts in italics with my bolds.

Ever since the IPCC report in 2018, there’s been an increasing surge of doomist reporting, to the point that it is no surprise that there are many of our youngsters are naturally depressed and suicidal, thinking there is little point in life, and that they won’t live to be adults. Others are leading the way with politically unrealistic demands that we decarbonize completely within 12 years. These new requirements they are making are not supported at all by science, rather they are a result of emotional rhetoric, journalistic exaggerations, and junk science

    Problem is that if the IPCC came out against all the scaremongering too many people would start asking awkward questions and the edifice would start to crumble. They can’t allow that because they are relying on the people being afraid and wanting them to lead them to safety.

    It would also expose their total lack of scientific rigour and expose them as Climate Alchemists.

    It now looks like a race to the bottom to be the scariest crazed scaremonger. Let’s hope there are no casualties 😬

    Not only dangerous, but foolhardy.

    The folly of “climate emergency”

    “….But the authors say the situation has got so out of hand that the IPCC should say something to make it clear how badly they have been misrepresented in the media….”

    I don’t think that author realises what has happened.
    Exaggerating the data on Climate Change – in many cases wildly – is now a major industry, and the basis for many political activists on the Left. It is providing a living for many thousands of influential people and foundations. So it’s not going to go away.

    If anyone questions the need to panic and spend vast sums of money with no clear plan or aim, a twitterstorm will ensure that that person loses his job. There is no way that anyone is going to question this scam…
