Climate Change Effects far worse than ever imagined

GLOBAL WARMING WILL CAUSE WAR, PESTILENCE, FAMINE AND DEATH, SAYS NEW IPCC REPORT INEVITABLY



Run Run for your lives!!!!!!!!!!

http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-L...ort-Inevitably

Today sees the release of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's (IPCC) latest findings on the state of "global warming" and the news isn't good.

Here are some of the highlights:
Giant malarial mosquitoes the size of crane flies may descend en masse and drain us of our blood so quickly with their powerful razor sharp probosces that we won't even have time to be infected - we'll be dead before we hit the floor;

Bangladesh, Tuvalu, The Maldives and Florida will all be submerged;

Four horsemen with skulls for faces, glowing red eyes and huge scythes will gallop across the blighted land on skeletal horses spreading fire, pestilence, famine, and disease. Men will pray for the quick release of death. Children will clutch their parents and say: "Why didn't we listen?";

The populations of horrid things like cockroaches and scorpions will quintuple, while all the cute animals - wrens, robins, meerkats, baby polar bears, kittens, sea otters - will vanish as if they had never been;

Men will say openly that Christ and His saints slept;

There will be war, war and more war.

We know this because the Guardian's Suzanne Goldenberg is on the case. She has got in her climate doom predictions early and though she based her report on a leaked sneak preview rather than the finished document, she has undoubtedly captured the general tone, which is this: things are even worse than we thought!

And are things really even worse than we thought?
Not exactly, no. The real take-home story of the new report we already learned last week: that the latest estimates of the economic costs of "climate change" are considerably lower than previous projections; so much lower, in fact, that the costs could be offset by just a month's global economic growth.

It's to obscure this inconvenient truth that the Big Green Propaganda Machine will now be cranking into overdrive. Over the next few days - watch and listen: they'll be all over the MSM like a suppurating pox rash - "expert" after "expert" will be dragged out of the woodwork to testify that, no, this time it's serious and as a measure of the serious seriousness of it all it's really about time we silenced those Big-Oil-funded climate deniers for good. Throw them in jail, at any rate.

Over the weekend we saw none other than the ex-Archbishop of Canterbury, the bearded wizard Rowan Williams, sticking his crozier in:

Rich, industrialised countries, including our own, have unquestionably contributed most to atmospheric pollution; the development of profitable heavy industry relied on what we now think of as "dirty" energy sources, and involved environmental degradation on an unprecedented scale. Both our present lifestyle in the developed world and the history of how we created such possibilities for ourselves have to bear the responsibility for pushing the environment in which we live towards crisis.

This coincided with a report Taken By Storm by the charity he heads - Christian Aid - demanding "decisive action" to combat climate change.

The WWF is making similar demands:
Samantha Smith, leader of the WWF Global Climate & Energy Initiative says the report highlights, for the first time, the dramatic difference of impacts between a world where we act now to cut emissions, which now come mostly from using fossil fuels; and a world where we fail to act quickly and at scale.

“This report tells us that we have two clear choices: cut emissions now and invest in adaption - and have a world that has challenging and just barely manageable risks; or do nothing and face a world of devastating and unmanageable risks and impacts.”

Even the US Defense Department - to its eternal shame - has been co-opted into the green propaganda war. Last month it published its Quadrennial Defense Review, claiming that "climate change" could be a "threat multiplier."

Climate change poses another significant challenge for the United States and the world at large. As greenhouse gas emissions increase, sea levels are rising, average global temperatures are increasing, and severe weather patterns are accelerating. These changes, coupled with other global dynamics, including growing, urbanizing, more affluent populations, and substantial economic growth in India, China, Brazil, and other nations, will devastate homes, land, and infrastructure. Climate change may exacerbate water scarcity and lead to sharp increases in food costs. The pressures caused by climate change will influence resource competition while placing additional burdens on economies, societies, and governance institutions around the world. These effects are threat multipliers that will aggravate stressors abroad such as poverty, environmental degradation, political instability, and social tensions – conditions that can enable terrorist activity and other forms of violence.

This is about as close to meaningless nonsense as makes no difference - as, no doubt, a good many in the US military are more than aware. But it is the inevitable consequence of the way the climate change worm has infected almost every major institution from the scientific academies and the universities to the various departments of government.

Unfortunately, it has given the IPCC just the excuse it needed to shoehorn war into its long list of things that might be caused some time in the future by global warming. As Seth Borenstein - AP's answer to Suzanne Goldenberg - reports it in his usual breathless fashion:

In an authoritative report due out Monday a United Nations climate panel for the first time is connecting hotter global temperatures to hotter global tempers. Top scientists are saying that climate change will complicate and worsen existing global security problems, such as civil wars, strife between nations and refugees.They're not saying it will cause violence, but will be an added factor making things even more dangerous. Fights over resources, like water and energy, hunger and extreme weather will all go into the mix to destabilize the world a bit more, says the report by the Nobel Peace Prize-winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

Yeah, Seth, whatever. But you didn't get the stuff about the giant mosquitoes, did you? Or the four horsemen? Or the scorpions eating all the baby polar bears?

The great thing about science is that it is true whether you believe it or not. Mock all you want, Breitbart.

I've heard of it.

Typical IPCC alarmism... making it sound like civilization will be under water within the next 10 years. Diseases never before seen will descend upon us and cause massive death. Cities will wash away in the tide of nature's wrath.

The problem is that the world has already been warmer than it is now and these things didn't exactly happen... unless you want to blame climate for things caused by terrible hygiene.

That's not to say artificial warming is not an issue, but the exaggerated predictions are not helping. It's actively blaming climate change for war now... I mean any war from this point on. WTF? Now even human VIOLENCE is caused by climate? Anyway the main problem causing climate change is people. The solution? KILL THE PEOPLE! Yet many of these environmentalists won't even stop having kids. By having ONE CHILD, you have contributed more to climate change than I have. Ahh.. the problems we face.

I know that everyone thinks themselves to be smarter than everyone else.

All politicians are corrupt. They're certainly not all stupid.

The problem lies in that we simply don't send our best/brightest into politics.

Then the man is a fool for believing unreliable and uninformed sources. It's not actually "Skepticism", it is simply ignorance.

Scientists have no control over what the media chooses or how they present it, or what the politicians then choose from the media's offerings.

What's happening here, is that ordinary people are mistrustful of actual scientists simply because they're too unintelligent to recognize misinformation.

Typical "enlightened" prog looking down his nose as being better (Smarter, more informed and more educated) than the folks. Thereby we need them to make decisions about our lifestyles. Sounds like feudalism with noblemen knowing what is best and/or like the divinity of kings era --now the divinity of scientists era.

Using the broad generality of "scientists" obscures the fact that there are scientists, plenty of them, that don't support AGW alarmism.

Sounds like you're describing the author of the Breitbart article that HonestChieffan linked more than anybody else.

Also, history lesson: noblemen weren't unbiased third parties that were consulted by democratic governments, but other than totally missing the point nice analogy!!

Yes people are ignorant but it's amazing how awful the media has been on this topic. I would estimate that it's fewer than 15% of people out there know that temperatures have been stagnant for 15+ years. I recently had an entire room full of people try to shout me down when I mentioned this fact. This is a pretty clear indication that people are being mislead on the topic and it's not as simple as saying "they should know better."

I see it like this; is the earth warming in a permanent fashion? I dunno.

Is the warming man caused? I dunno.

Can the government of this country or the government of any country do anything about this in any kind of a cohesive and effective manner? No ****ing way.

The only rebuttal necessary to global warming is to ask for prescriptions. Just line out what policies are required and how you will get there. "Carbon tax", "green investment", "fuel efficiency standards", and the like are not going to reasonate with voters especially in a bad economy.
