Bjorn Lomborg: The debate about the UN Paris Agreement is “about identity politics. It’s about feeling good… but the climate doesn’t care about how you feel."
“If everyone does all they promised -- and remember the track record ain't that good -- but if everyone does all they promised and do it all the way through the century, we'll reduce temperatures by end of the century by 0.3 degrees Fahrenheit. You won't be able to measure it in a one hundred years. Yet the costs will be somewhere between $1 trillion and $2 trillion a year. Paying $100 trillion for no good is not a good deal."
"The reason why we emit CO2 -- remember, we don't do it to annoy Al Gore -- we do it because it powers everything we like about civilization. So we want permanent and good and cheap energy. Right now we get that from fossil fuels. If we are going to get it from some other source, we need that to be much much cheaper."
Warmist group in Africa calls for devastation for Africa?! 'Man made induced climate changes are escalating frequent and intense weather events. With an escalating climate crisis and more devastating damages, it’s time for Africa to reject the current development model based on fossil fuels and rapidly transition towards a decentralised renewable energy system which can not only respond to the growing energy needs, but also integrate community resilience to climate change.'
Conversation with former EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy: 'The challenge I think we have is for some reason climate change has become a religion -- a politically induced religion instead of science fact that now we have to embrace and move forward on.'
Sundance Film Festival goers warn of 'global warming' impacts: 'It affects our ability to reproduce.'
Another Sundance climate activist claimed rising seas will wash away land, causing -- no place to have sex!? "Protect your landbase, you can't have sex without it. If we don't have a landbase you can't have sex without it."
Other climate activists comments: "Back in the day in park city there would be 3 feet of snow on the ground so you can't deny climate change."
"Our lives matter, climate change is real. Stop trying to deny it."
Warn 'criminal' climate deniers: "We are coming for you."
Climate Depot's undercover agent caught up with Gore on Saturday January 21 at Sundance film festival in the late afternoon while Gore was exiting a private party at the Zoom restaurant in Park City Utah. Gore was trudging through the snow to his oversized Chevy Suburban SUV, when the undercover agent asked an inconvenient question of Gore.
Question: "Hey Al, I just saw [your sequel] 'Inconvenient'."
Gore: "Oh great, thank you!"
Question: "My friends make fun of me about the 10-year tipping point, what do I tell them?"
Gore: "Well, we gotta keep working." Gore then gives a momentary stare and then ignores the question and enters his "Executive Car Service" Chevy Suburban and departs on the snowy street.
A cheerful Gore waves as he exits...But moments later Gore seems startled that he is asked about his 10-year tipping point warning from 2006.
Danish statistician Dr. Bjorn Lomborg, the President of the Copenhagen Consensus Center: 'We will spend at least one hundred trillion dollars in order to reduce the temperature by the end of the century by a grand total of three tenths of one degree...the equivalent of postponing warming by less than four years...Again, that is using the UN's own climate prediction model.'
'If the U.S. delivers for the whole century on the President Obama's very ambitious rhetoric, it would postpone global warming by about eight months at the end of the century.'
'But here is the biggest problem: These miniscule benefits do not come free -- quite the contrary. The cost of the UN Paris climate pact is likely to run 1 to 2 trillion dollars every year.'
Kerry stated, we must act quickly “to avoid the catastrophe we will inevitably see if we allow carbon emissions to go up, and up, and up.” Moreover, he added, “We need to speed it up dramatically because we are in a race against time.” ...“What we do right now, today, matters,” Kerry told the audience. “We don’t get a second chance on this one.”
Nicholas Kristof OPED NYT - e Americans may be inadvertently killing her infant son. Climate change, disproportionately caused by carbon emissions from America, seems to be behind a severe drought that has led crops to wilt across seven countries in southern Africa. The result is acute malnutrition for 1.3 million children in the region, the United Nations says. Trump has repeatedly mocked climate change, once even calling it a hoax fabricated by China.
