In other words the models were not as accurate as they hoped.

Actually they will calim what little action that has been taken has already had a major effect but even more effort is required.

Some Australians (sceptics) have already decided the job is done and dusted and we can all relax, their weather has been unusually cool and they don't believe it's due to conditions coming down from the Arctic, especially considering the distance involved.

The United States is the biggest target of the left wing. Since global warming really isn't causing much hardship anywhere, it behooves the left to tell their target that only they have escaped. There is a need to make Americans feel guilty. So they make up some B.S.

The media has been calling communist agricultural mismanagement and famine, climate crisis, for twenty years. Before that, they called it bad weather. Some things never change.

So, now we must build an explanation why agricultural output in the First World is increasing, just like all productivity. Dodged a bullet works or me.
