Catastrophism update: UN to deliver diagnosis, prescription for its ‘climate crisis’

Posted: March 20, 2023 by oldbrew in alarmism, climate, IPCC, Temperature, weather

The world only has one temperature, which must somehow be restrained by human efforts — and lots of money. Or so the endless IPCC reports would have us believe. Keep paying up so the self-styled weather controllers can ‘save the planet’.

The United Nations was poised to release a capstone report Monday distilling nearly a decade of published science on the impacts and trajectory of global warming, and the tools available to prevent climate catastrophe, says

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s 30-odd page “summary for policymakers”—compressing 10,500 pages authored by more than 1,000 scientists—is as dense as a black hole and will deliver a stark warning.

“We are nearing a point of no return,” UN chief Antonio Guterres said last week as diplomats from 195 nations gathered in Interlaken, Switzerland, to hammer out the final wording, finalized on Sunday night by exhausted and sleep-deprived delegates two days behind schedule.

“For decades, the IPCC has put forward evidence on how people and planet are being rocked by climate destruction.”

Since the last IPCC synthesis report in 2014, science has determined that devastating impacts are happening more quickly and at lower levels of warming than previously understood.

With Earth’s average surface temperature 1.2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels so far, the planet has seen a steady crescendo of extreme weather, including tropical storms made worse by rising seas.

On current trends, the world is on track to warm by an additional 1.6 degrees.

In 2022, climate change quantifiably amplified deadly heatwaves in South America and South Asia, massive flooding in Nigeria and Pakistan, and record-breaking drought in Western Europe and the Unites States, according the World Weather Attribution consortium, which includes many IPCC authors.

Science in the last decade has also elevated the danger posed by so-called tipping points in Earth’s climate system that could—beyond certain temperature thresholds—see tropical forests in the Amazon morph into savannah, and ice sheets in Greenland and West Antarctica shed enough water to lift oceans by meters.

Global stocktake

But most of the wrangling at the week-long IPCC meeting centered on potential solutions, especially on how to decarbonise the global economy quickly enough to avoid crippling impacts, according to participants.

Under the 2015 Paris Agreement, nations vowed to collectively cap warming at “well below” 2C, and at 1.5C if possible.

A 2018 IPCC special report made it alarmingly clear that the more ambitious aspirational goal—since adopted by governments and business as a hard target—was a better guarantee for a climate-safe world.

ROGER PIELKE JR.: A Primer On The IPCC’s Implausible Climate Scenarios (MAR 17, 2023)
Quote: I have written a lot in recent years about the out-of-date scenarios of the IPCC and I thought it would be useful to prepare this short primer for those wanting to better understand the issues or simply to be reminded of the key findings.

    Global warming news from California…

  2. Jamie Spry says:

    Reblogged this on Climatism and commented:
    Tough ask to comment objectively or responsibly on this one. Perhaps best left up to a literary master, unaffected by hubris.

    “It is not power that corrupts but fear. Fear of losing power corrupts those who wield it and fear of the scourge of power corrupts those who are subject to it.”
    — John Steinbeck

  3. oldbrew says:

    Video jumps to Roger Pielke’s short presentation after ad. He doesn’t argue against CO2 phobia, but points out the IPCC lets known-to-be unrealistic temperature scenarios flourish in climate science circles without any pushback.

  4. Phoenix44 says:

    Since 2014, we’ve discovered the science then was wrong. But now we are really confident it’s right. Because its the same people who were wrong doing it but saying its worse than they thought. Even though since 2016 the satellite temperature hasn’t increased.

    Science? I think not.

  5. Johna says:

    Talk about BBC double standards/impartially etc. Justin Rowlatt said CO2 is to blame for Swiss glaciers meting. But in the BBC advert for him says:.. Justin Rowlatt will be reporting from the remote Thwaites Glacier, “where researchers are trying to find out why” its melting. Don’t the BBC know its the Sun, or they do but are purposefully lying to the public?? Makes me wonder on the WAR the West has created i.e. is it all to do with NZ and the UN’s Elitists vision of a World they want to control?

  6. catweazle666 says:

    “…the World Weather Attribution consortium”

    Says it all, that!

    Pay pay pay – or the planet gets it, say climate miserablists with dodgy crystal ball 🙄

    IPCC final warning: Act now or face dire consequences

    The IPCC Synthesis report will warn that urgent and sustained action is required in the 2020s to avert catastrophic consequences

    All sounding familiar?

    Leaders pretend to have magic ways to make the climate obey their will, whatever that might be 🤣

  8. ivan says:

    Going through their mumbo jumbo I think they are saying ‘we don’t have a clue what is going on because the real world doesn’t fit any of our models but you should believe in the models.’

    Maybe they need to spend a couple of years out in the real world to learn reality.

    IPCC launches 666th final final warning of climate hell: AR6 is a “Survival guide to humanity”

    The Perfect Doom Sale:
    The panic is now perfectly tuned like a Boxing Day sale — stocks are limited but there is hope if you act fast. Every warning is the last chance, every catastrophe is ten years away, and every final clearance sale has a discount for early responders…

    “This is the final warning to limit the climate warming,” Dr Perkins-Kirkpatrick said.

    The author still thinks ‘carbon emissions’ are a big problem.

    Today Not as windy as forecast – back to dreich days? But WHO says Artic Ice is melting, … Ice makes things cold ( I know there’s more to it than that) We have all this cold Northerly winds: Connections with Orkanger in NW Norway: shows how cold it has been ( still) this winter with the marina being regularly icebound for a few days – recently and looking regularly at these Iceland webcams, have never seen so much sea ice reforming over a winter as here today, noticed the wind whipping up fresh ( dry snow) THink we are needing to add to the air’s “Carbon” Greenblobs attempts been too successful – gone too far!
    UK MSM obsessed with Boris et al and other rubbish distracting themes: Watching German tv ( Sat reception permitting due to heavy cloud/ rain ??) An Energy ( Wind ) Spokesman bumping gums about needing mor wind power and how Southern Germany has a Lower than average uptake of the idea. Hmm, too far from the N Sea coast for reliable wind flow perhaps ?
    Cutting down More trees and flooding the mountains, to make a pumped Hydro scheme.. seems to have been going on for a coupla years now – hadn’t heard much ( covid fog?)

    Oh yes, Oldbrew, thanks ( a good link I’d not fallen over): easier to read than listen to them blethering.
