The climate mob are getting their knickers in a twist again.
They have produced a long repost which has presumably been translated into some format that us mere humans can understand. I still can’t understand it.
The report is full of percentages that apply to the last ten years or last year or something. Basically every single sentence can be further distilled to one word – PANIC. Yes, we are all to panic as we have a mere five years [I think] before we are dooomed. This presumably the same five [or three] years we have been hearing about for the last couple of decades?
Greenhouse gas emissions at ‘an all-time high’ causing unprecedented rate of global warming
Yup. This is a standard letterhead on all their reports.
Human-induced warming averaged 1.14C over the last decade.
I’m not sure what this means. Is it 1.14C per year totaling 11.4C? Or did it take the full ten years, in which case why not just say that?
A record level of greenhouse gases is being emitted each year, equivalent to 54 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide
Equivalent to Carbon Dioxide? So not Carbon Dioxide but something else? I suppose CO2 is being used as the unit of measurement as it’s the one we have been told to be scared of?
The remaining carbon budget – how much carbon dioxide can be emitted to have a better than 50% chance of holding global warming to 1.5°C – has halved over three years
I’m sorry but you have lost me completely here.
Reduced particulate pollution from coal burning has temporarily added to global warming as the particulates had been having a cooling effect
Hold on a minute… Burning coal added to global warming by having a cooling effect? Surely this is the golden key they have been looking for? The Holy Grail of Climate Change? Burn more coal! The smoke reduced the sun’s effect and cools the planet. Failing coal, let’s burn the world’s forests. The Canadians have obviously copped on to this already?
Key climate indicators to be updated every year, so people can be kept informed about critical aspects of global warming
Annual Panic Alerts? God help us.
