Here in the United States, we fret a lot about global warming denial. Not only is it a dangerous delusion, it's an incredibly prevalent one.

The global picture, however, is quite different.

Warmists have hissy fits when their "science" gets challenged and they attempt to find another discipline to try to explain why some folks consider the "settled science" of "consensus" to be the opposite of 'real' scientific practices.

What a glorified yawn fest... looks like sks has found another outlet for their propaganda.... and never mind one of their major contributors works for a fossil fuel company.

Oh wait, Nuccitelli has a blog at the Guadian.

So many hypocrites on so many levels.

The results are telling, the more socialist, the more people will believe their wise leaders will save them from catastrophic climate disruption. Look at the graph, totalitarian China leads in climate change mitigation faith. The most free nations, with the greatest protections on speech all lead on global warming skepticism(except fossil fuel rich Russia).

IPCC Presents Assessment on Measures to Mitigate Climate Change

Published on Apr 13, 2014 - 7:18:14 AM


By: UN Environment Programme (UNEP)

Berlin, Germany, 13 April 2014 The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the group of the world's leading climate change scientists established by the UN General Assembly and working under the auspices of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the World Meteorological Organization, has just released in Berlin, after 6 years of intensive work reviewing all available science, its 2014 assessment on measures to mitigate climate change.

Among its main findings is that the concentration of Green House Gasses (GHGs) gasses which cause climate change have grown more quickly during the last decade that in each of the previous three decades.

Globally, economic and population growth continue to be the most important drivers of increases in CO2 emissions from fossil fuel combustion. The contribution of population growth between 2000 and 2010 remained roughly identical to the previous three decades, while the contribution of economic growth has risen sharply.

Scenarios show that to have a likely chance of limiting the increase in global mean temperature to two degrees Celsius, means lowering global greenhouse gas emissions by 40 to 70 per cent compared with 2010 by mid-century, and to near-zero by the end of this century.

P.S. Baseline scenarios, those without additional mitigation, result in global mean surface temperature increases in 2100 from 3.7 to 4.8C compared to pre&#8208;industrial levels (median values; the range is 2.5C to 7.8C when including climate uncertainty).

The fact warmist's pseudoscience relies on popularity polls instead of experimental tests proves man made catastrophic global warming more akin to beauty pageantry than science.

BTW, this consensus is "The climate change we are currently seeing is largely a result of human activity"; in the USA only 54% agree, in China 93% agree.

They blame freedom of speech, I agree. When asked "what human activity" and "what to do about it", there is no consensus. Neither in politics or science. The climate fearmongers wants to stop free markets, energy production and fuel use; this is where I differ. I'm for expanding the economy, growth replacing conservation, for our children. And I'm voting this November.

No lie was caught regarding Professor Mann. These deniers are in a war with scientists.

They can't stand the Nobel prize given to Al Gore and the IPCC scientists. Tough, LOL.

Deniers think they can fool the public and prevent mitigation of CO2 buildup in the environment. Guess why they hate environmentalists, too!

Nothing can prevent CO2 buildup in the atmosphere, why would anyone want to? 500ppmv by 2050 or bust!

Mann's hockey stick is a lie because it ignores preindustrial climate fluctuation. Al Gore and the IPCC won the Nobel prize for peace, not for science. Yasser Arafat won the Nobel peace prize too, that didn't make him right.

But I bet S.B. likes Yasser Arafat's position on Israel; how much you want to lose?

What "threats"? I see S.B.'s insults: "insane", "irrational" and "nuts" but where do you find any kind of threat?

I don't believe in threats or using violence against political opponents, I specifically reject threats. I reject Arafat's rejection of the Jewish State, I'll bet S.B. doesn't. Any takers?

you're lying again, nutsack.

you honestly think anyone cares about the nobel, son? the nobel has no more relevance or importance. it's a liberal popularity contest. nothing more. like when obama won his.....FOR DOING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

lol

stop lying, little 'mann'. you argued for months that mann was a nobel winner, anyway. that's the point! now you back track and say ipcc scientists. what happened to your previous lies and demands, huh?

.. LOL begging to reply? Professor Mann was one of the IPCC. Stupidity runs deep within denierism, hahaha..



The IPCC is a scientific body under the auspices of the United Nations (UN). It reviews and assesses the most recent scientific, technical and socio-economic information produced worldwide relevant to the understanding of climate change. It does not conduct any research nor does it monitor climate related data or parameters.

Thousands of scientists from all over the world contribute to the work of the IPCC on a voluntary basis. Review is an essential part of the IPCC process, to ensure an objective and complete assessment of current information. IPCC aims to reflect a range of views and expertise. The Secretariat coordinates all the IPCC work and liaises with Governments. It is supported by WMO and UNEP and hosted at WMO headquarters in Geneva.


P.S. We've been through this many times. Deniers hate Professor Mann's contributions. Tough.

P. P.S.By the way:

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is the leading international body for the assessment of climate change. It was established by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) in 1988 to provide the world with a clear scientific view on the current state of knowledge in climate change and its potential environmental and socio-economic impacts. In the same year, the UN General Assembly endorsed the action by WMO and UNEP in jointly establishing the IPCC.

Why don't you 'mitigate' your own contributions of CO2 to the atmosphere and just shut up.

Cuz you can't. Topix is the only place you have friends in the world... even though you've never met them.

But maybe that's the point... if they ever met you, they'd 'un-friend' you immediately.

LOL

What a hypocrite.

"No lie was caught..."?

Are you suggesting that there exists a lie 'not yet caught'.

LOL
