Nations vet 3,000-page handbook to ‘halt climate crisis’?

Photosynthesis: nature requires carbon dioxide


How delusional can these self-appointed weather managers get? Their ‘carbon pollution’ is a trace gas (a mere 0.04% of the atmosphere) essential to the natural world. But in their minds it’s a disaster waiting to happen, if not already happening, and so the endless hype and demands for ever more massive expenditure go on.

Nearly 200 nations gather Monday to grapple with a question that will outlive Covid-19 and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine (says Phys.org): how does a world addicted to fossil fuels prevent carbon pollution from making Earth unliveable?

A partial answer is set for April 4 after closed-door, virtual negotiations approve a nearly 3,000-page report detailing options for drawing down greenhouse gases and extracting them from the air.

“The impacts are costly and mounting, but we still have some time to close the window and get ahead of the worst of them if we act now,” said Alden Meyer, a senior analyst at climate and energy think-tank E3G.

“This report will supply the answers as to what we need if we’re serious about getting there.”

In August 2021, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) laid out the physical science: the pace of global warming and sea level rise, along with shifts in the frequency, duration and intensity of cyclones, heatwaves and droughts.

That was part one in a three-part assessment, the sixth since 1990.

It projected that Earth’s surface temperature will rise 1.5 degrees Celsius above preindustrial levels, perhaps within a decade.

A 1.5C cap on global warming—the aspirational goal of the 2015 Paris climate accord—has been embraced as a target by most of the world’s nations.

It’s not hard to see why: barely 1.1C of warming so far has ushered in a crescendo of deadly extreme weather across the globe.

Recently renewed national carbon-cutting commitments, however, still put us on a catastrophic path toward 2.7C of warming by 2100.

Continued here.

    ‘IPCC laid out the physical science: the pace of global warming and sea level rise, along with shifts in the frequency, duration and intensity of cyclones, heatwaves and droughts.’

    Got a verb to go with that word salad?

    ‘Russia’s invasion of Ukraine’

    This is actually pertinent. A country needs a good economy to be able to support a military. Crushing your economy to make the UN (IPCC) happy will leave you vulnerable to invasion by Russia. Or China. Or Denmark.

    ‘Recently renewed national carbon-cutting commitments, however, still put us on a catastrophic path toward 2.7C of warming by 2100.’

    So they know within a tenth of a degree the effects of carbon dioxide on Global Mean Temperature.

    ‘It projected that Earth’s surface temperature will rise 1.5 degrees Celsius above preindustrial levels, perhaps within a decade.’

    Perhaps?!?! Look, do you know the effect of CO2 on GMT or not?

    No, you don’t know. You are full of $#|+.

    The UN bullying the world to submit to their control.

    “a world addicted to fossil fuels”

    I for one, prefer to live in less primitive circumstances than my ancestors; a warm house in winter without burning up the local forest, a bit of light after dark without killing off the whale population, being able to travel without commandeering a horse that needs feed and shelter and water, to enjoy fresh fruits and vegetables that greatly improves my health while adding beneficial plants to the biosphere, the use of various petroleum derived compounds aiding in the healing of injury.

    That’s not addiction to me. That’s smart living. What I don’t like is corporate hypocrites with their plunder mentality that leaves the environment brutalized and wasted, taking generations for the earth to restore the balance.

    a crescendo of deadly extreme weather…

    No, a crescendo of over-the-top headlines signifying nothing.

    In theory—because the technology does not yet exist at scale—carbon dioxide removal will compensate for hard-to-decarbonise sectors such as aviation and shipping, and extract excess CO2 if temperatures “overshoot” the Paris Agreement targets.

    How many billion tons of CO2 would that be, who pays for it, where does the CO2 go, who decides if/when temps have ‘overshot’, etc. etc.? Looks like fantasy 🙄

    There is no climate ‘crisis’. There’s not even a climate problem.
    You will own nothing, and be happy, or else…

  6. stpaulchuck says:

    watch your wallets! the scamdemic is about over so they are moving back to CAGW for their next wave of tyranny.

    “The impacts are costly and mounting…” all predicated on computer models that have NEVER been right yet. The only “costly” numbers are not controlled for increased building on coasts and other places that get hit by the usual weather like hurricanes and tornadoes. Just another scam to rip us off.

  7. Gamecock says:

    “Science X Network :: Phys.org, Medical Xpress, Tech Xplore”

    “Science X is wholly owned by Omicron Limited, headquartered in Douglas, Isle Of Man, United Kingdom.”

    Phys.org is a product of a Manx company. How long will the lights stay on at Phys.org without fossil fuels? It is decadence. They rail against that which keeps them alive.

  8. Hasbeen says:

    Delusional!!! Do you really think they believe the propaganda for even a minute. Like bl00dy hell they do. This is merely a good red herring to hang their manipulation of society on. It is all about the private jet flying elite believe the peasantry have it too good, & hate seeing the resources wasted on McMansions & SUVs by them.

    Any scam will do, provi9ded it harms the great unwashed masses.

    Propaganda corner: what has the muzzle mask got to do with it?

  10. watersider says:

    Gamecock,
    Did you say Omicron? I thought that came from an American lab in Wuhan CHYNA?
    Are you sure about the spelling? I thought it was Omi-Con

    UK Gridwatch currently has wind power at 3.4% and coal at 4.7% of total generation (gas 48%). Take the gas away and we’re stuffed in high pressure weather conditions like this.

    Government response: build more wind turbines 🙄

    Gung-ho push for unreliables goes into reverse, due to fossil fuel issues 🤔

    Belgium pushes nuclear exit back a decade due to Ukraine crisis

    It has made the decision following the surge in energy prices

    – – –
    So they admit unreliables can’t keep prices down. ‘World leading’ UK wind power is 2.4% of total electricity generation at 8.05 am this morning — coal 4.4% (gas 49%).

    A New Era Has Dawned For Nuclear Power
    Mar 23, 2022

    The international push to transition away from fossil fuels has sparked a resurgence of interest in nuclear power.

    Some analysts are predicting that nuclear energy could make up 12% of the global energy mix by 2050.

    Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is highlighting some major problems with the world’s overreliance on fossil fuels.

    some major problems with the world’s overreliance on fossil fuels — such as the excessive cost and obvious unreliability of the renewables alternatives?
