This is something worth reading about the latest climate report, biggest conference since 2007. They say we can hit one trillion tons released and maybe be OK, and we will hit that in 2040, but here’s the thing we got three trillion tons in the ground which means there will be a lot of people with a lot of assets at stake. So I would expect reducing the power of money in politics would be a survival move at this point.

On another point, or the same one depending on how you look at it, the energy thing can and I believe will be mostly solved by learning how to get energy out of each waveband of the Sun’s light as plants do this will be accomplished with multi-layered solar cells, just thought folks would like to know.

And how is that a solution? WTF?

No idea how far out the technology is in terms of development, let alone the small issue of implementation.

Add in the fact that even if we ceased spewing carbon now - the planet would likely continue to warm for decades

can we not simply face the facts?

Well it has only recently solidified in my mind the way forward on energy, it had appeared a near impossible problem but as the efficiency has improved in leaps and bounds with the recent investment, (made possible by that same program that funded Solaris) the way forward has become clear. Does this solve the problem of the ice melting all over the world, no it doesn't that's a fair point, that will be a rich against the rest battle based on the value of that 2 trillion tons of fossil fuel we just can't burn and continue living that battle is only getting started.

Yeah-ya, here we go

  • Climate scientists not involved in writing the new report said that, in reality, the authors had made a series of conservative choices in their assessment of the scientific evidence. Regarding sea level, for instance, they gave the first firm estimates ever contained in an intergovernmental panel report, declaring that if emissions continue at a runaway pace, the rise by the end of the 21st century could be as much as three feet. They threw out a string of published papers suggesting a worst-case rise closer to five feet.

It's crazy. The percentage of people who do not believe in Global Warming continues to grow, while the IPCC reports clearly show they have been consistently understating the pace at which change is taking place, in other words the effects that were once expected by the end of this century are now projected to occur much earlier - while at the same time - they seem to be revising upward how much carbon we may safely consume by 2040.

the fukers are insane.

whoever designed that nannie state teat sucker ad campaign should be shot

There is little better example of the rich using psychological propaganda to influence the beliefs of the masses more so than in the so called "climate debate". They are systematically discrediting science at every point and care not what it will do to the American future as they have long ago realized that acquiring talent and a labor force in areas where workers have less economic power than they do here is profitable. Of course the way to change their behavior is to change the rules so that it is not profitable to do this.

I'm sure I saw poll results from ten years ago compared with today showing fewer people consider Global Warming a significant threat.

that's not just insane, it's totally unacceptable.
