Spencer writes that the climate establishment may be trying to address the growing disparity between models and observations for some time, and suggests:
“The resulting new paper is part of a grand scheme that Population Bomb author Paul Ehrlich perfected decades ago. I believe the new narrative taking shape is this: ‘yes, we were wrong, but only in the timing of the coming global warming disaster. It is still going to happen… but now we have time to fix it, before it really, really is too late.’”
Earlier this month, the biologist Paul Ehrlich used a similar defense after co-authoring a study that warned of a coming “annihilation” of vertebrates. “I am an alarmist,” Ehrlich told the Washington Post. “My colleagues are alarmists. We’re alarmed, and we’re frightened. And there’s no other way to put it.”
Flashback WaPo: Earth is on its way to the biggest mass extinction since the dinosaurs, scientists warn - Ehrlich said the point of the research is exactly that — to cause alarm. “I am an alarmist. My colleagues are alarmists. We're alarmed, and we're frightened. And there's no other way to put it,” he said. “It's largely a political and economic problem. We have a government that's doing everything they can to push these things in the wrong direction. We have economists who think they can actually grow forever in a finite planet.”

Morano refuted Al Gore and John Kerry on Fox saying, "Donald Trump made the best deal. He got out of it. Sometimes walking away from the table when the premise is absurd is best. The premise here is that the United Nations is going to save the planet through regulation, central planning and wealth redistribution -- their own words. That is an absurd premise. Trump perfected himself as the 'Art of the Deal' master by walking away from this absurd, basically a belief in superstition deal.'
Why is Gore's allowed to get away with failed predictions: Morano: 'It's been happening since at least the 1960s when we had over population guru Paul Ehrlich who made very specific predictions resource scarcity famines by the year 1980. All of them failed to materialize.'
NYT: 'In the 1960s, fears of overpopulation sparked campaigns for population control. But whatever became of the population bomb?' ...'One thing that happened on the road to doom was that the world figured out how to feed itself despite its rising numbers. No small measure of thanks belonged to Norman E. Borlaug, an American plant scientist whose breeding of high-yielding, disease-resistant crops led to the agricultural savior known as the Green Revolution.'
'Fred Pearce, a British writer who specializes in global population. His concern is not that the world has too many people. In fact, birthrates are now below long-term replacement levels, or nearly so, across much of Earth, not just in the industrialized West and Japan but also in India, China, much of Southeast Asia, Latin America — just about everywhere except Africa, although even there the continentwide rates are declining. “Girls that are never born cannot have babies,” Mr. Pearce wrote in a 2010 book, “The Coming Population Crash and Our Planet’s Surprising Future”.
