Flashback 1989: UN issues 10-year ‘global warming’ tipping point


By: - Climate DepotMay 4, 2015 9:29 AM with 7 comments

The United Nations in 2015, is once again issuing tipping point deadlines by which humanity must act in order to combat man-made global warming. See: Former UN Sec. Gen. Kofi Annan: ‘We must challenge climate skeptics who deny the facts’ – Warns of ‘tipping point’ – Touts carbon taxes – ‘World is reaching the tipping point beyond which climate change may become irreversible.’

May 2015 is also the deadline for another 2007 UN climate tipping point. See: 8 year tipping point expires May 4! Flashback 2007: ‘There could be as little as eight years left to avoid a dangerous global average rise of 2C or more’

But as far back as 1989, the UN was issuing ‘tipping points’ that have now long since expired. The UN claimed in 1989 that the world had to act to solve global warming by the year 2000 — or else!

As early as 1989, the UN was already trying to sell their “tipping point” rhetoric on the public. See: U.N. Warning of 10-Year ‘Climate Tipping Point’ Began in 1989 – Excerpt: According to July 5, 1989, article in the Miami Herald, the then-director of the New York office of the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), Noel Brown, warned of a “10-year window of opportunity to solve” global warming. According to the 1989 article, “A senior U.N. environmental official says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000. Coastal flooding and crop failures would create an exodus of ‘eco-refugees,’ threatening political chaos.”

    The UN and AGW fanatics are the perfect definition of a broken clock.

      For those of us old enough to remember, broken record applies. Stopped clocks, at least, are right twice a day.

    Carbon and Life

    It is hard to overstate the importance of carbon; its unique capacity for forming multiple bonds and chains at low energies makes life as we know it possible, and justifies an entire major branch of chemistry – organic chemistry – dedicated to its compounds. In fact, most of the compounds known to science are carbon compounds, often called organic compounds because it was in the context of biochemistry that they were first studied in depth.

    What makes carbon so special is that every carbon atom is eager to bond with as many as four other atoms. This makes it possible for long chains and rings to be formed out of them, together with other atoms – almost always hydrogen, often oxygen, sometimes nitrogen, sulfur or halides. The study of these is the basis of organic chemistry; the compounds carbon forms with metals are generally considered inorganic. Chains and rings are fundamental to the way carbon-based life forms – that is, all known life-forms – build themselves.

    This article is brilliant. It shows how ridiculous and bizarre the continuous tipping point threats have been over the years.

    The flawed ‘global warming doctrine train’ has now been rolling along for over two decades, destination unknown. Sadly, when it left the station, the carriages of genuine climate science were left behind at the station.

    Now, as the Paris climate conference fast approaches, the ‘train’ is gathering more momentum fuelled by propaganda from the UN’s Ban Ki-moon, US president Obama and recently the Pope.

    The only chance of derailing the ‘global warming doctrine train’ is for the evidence to be tested in some sort of court or tribunal tasked with examining that evidence against the claims made in support of catastrophic man-made global warming.

    Your intentionally conflating of a tipping point with the actual result of the tipping point is misleading at best. http://www.wunderground.com/blog/JeffMasters/february-smashes-earths-alltime-global-heat-record-by-a-jawdropping
