Physicist Dr. Lubos Motl: "The climate modeling hasn't led to any new yet reliable insights. In those 50 years, while the short-term weather models have made some progress, the long-term models have made virtually none and it is especially the case of the question about the magnitude of the influence of CO2 on the climate. All the relevant quantities (like the climate sensitivity) remained about as uncertain as when these modeling efforts were launched and the claim about the "reliable prediction of global warming" is a pure lie. So there is no reason for a Nobel Prize, especially not one that would go to somewhat random "physicists of the climate." ...
"The political motivation of this prize is 100% obvious. These people have been picked to steal a part of the credit accumulated by physics, the hardest discipline of sciences, and give it to one of the worst pseudoscientific superstitions of the contemporary era." ...
"Al Gore got his one-half of a Nobel Prize for a fraudulent PowerPoint presentation about the catastrophic global warming because tons of dishonest leftists loved these kinds of anti-scientific lies."
"Climate distress is very difficult, if not impossible, to bear alone...The IPCC report is the bearer of alarming news for all on Earth. How can we best hear and respond to this alarm, caring for ourselves and others while mustering motivation and commitment for desperately needed action? The research of climate psychology tells us that rather than suppress or avoid our distress, we need to welcome it as a healthy response to the climate crisis. If we are not feeling some level of fear and grief, we are in denial. Acknowledging the myriad feelings of distress we have in response to climate breakdown is crucial for sustained action in response. Our feelings show us how much we care about our world, our communities, our lives and our loved ones. This caring is the basis for the action and change our world needs from us all right now.
The majority of the planet’s fossil fuel reserves must stay in the ground if the world wants even half a chance — literally — at meeting its most ambitious climate targets. A new study published yesterday in the journal Nature found that 60 percent of oil and natural gas, and a whopping 90 percent of coal, must remain unextracted and unused between now and 2050 in order for the world to have at least a 50 percent shot at limiting warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius. ...
In the United States, the study suggests that 31 percent of oil reserves, 52 percent of natural gas and 97 percent of coal must stay in the ground. These cuts are already steep. But it’s likely that the study has underestimated the challenge, the authors warn.
Andrew [email protected] I just got a copy of the embargoed IPCC Summary for Policymakers. I hate to break the embargo, but this is too important to wait. Here it is, the entire SPM. Surprisingly, it’s just one paragraph long. - "Hey assholes. We’ve been telling you for decades that this was going to happen if we didn’t reduce greenhouse gas emissions. You didn’t listen and now it’s all happening. We hope you’re happy. Enjoy the heatwaves, intense rainfall, sea level rise, ocean acidification, and many other things, you fucking morons."
Morano: "Well first of all the big success story: Since 1920 we've had a 99% reduction in climate-related deaths that's the big success story so what fossil fuels have done which the Biden administration wants to go after is taking an unsafe climate and made it safe for humanity by giving us infrastructure by giving us early warning by giving us the technology so we are much safer...the idea that all this other weather is caused by climate this is nothing short of lobbying using an extreme weather event a bad weather event to lobby for your political goals. They've weaponized the weather and that's what the Biden administration is doing. It's what Chuck Schumer is doing and it's evidence-free because the more you look at the data there's always records broken there's always extreme weather everywhere on the planet that's the norm nothing unusual now from a climate time scale is occurring.
Dan Bongino: "I give that one to Marc. But thanks for thanks for joining us."
UN IPCC writes, “the frequency and intensity of heavy precipitation have likely increased at the global scale over a majority of land regions with good observational coverage,” but …, “heavier rainfall does not always lead to greater flooding.”
Concerning flooding, the IPCC writes, “Confidence about peak flow trends over past decades on the global scale is low, … there is low confidence in the human influence on the changes in high river flows on the global scale.” ...
University of Colorado’s Roger Pielke, Jr. analyzed the AR6 in detail, writing: “[I]t is simply incorrect to claim that on climate time scales the frequency or intensity of extreme weather and climate events has increased for: flooding, drought (meteorological or hydrological), tropical cyclones, winter storms, thunderstorms, tornadoes, hail, lightning or extreme winds (so, storms of any type).”
Paul Homewood: "Data shows that hurricanes are not becoming more intense, a fact that the IPCC themselves acknowledge."
"300 hurricanes made US landfall between 1851 and last year, including 92 major ones, that is Cat 3 and over. The busiest decade for major hurricanes was the 1940s, while in contrast, the last decade was one of the quietest. Ida is the first hurricane to hit the US so far this year."
"The Independent has also deviously claimed that Ida was the fifth-strongest hurricane to ever hit the mainland United States. In reality, it is actually tied with six other hurricanes, meaning it is only amongst the top 10. Many hurricanes prior to the satellite era of course may not have had their peak wind speeds actually recorded."
MIT Climate Scientists Dr. Richard Lindzen: When asked his opinion of Israeli solutions to climate change, Lindzen said: "Solution implies there is a problem." The real question is if the plan's worth doing. To that, he replied: "Not at all." "Demonizing carbon dioxide is just crazy," said [MIT climate scientist Richard] Lindzen. "It means we have a population that's forgotten elementary biology. They don't remember photosynthesis. We've already benefited due to the increase in CO2 by probably over a trillion dollars increase in agricultural productivity. The earth is greening due to this."
Nir Shaviv, a professor of physics at Hebrew University, told JNS that he feels many climate scientists are under pressure to produce alarming reports. There is "such a large climate industry that people need to publish things that show a large effect [from man-made emissions], or they don't get grants," he explained. Shaviv said the IPCC's scientists are not looking at all the evidence. "The thing that they're totally missing is the fact that the sun has a big effect on climate. We can simulate it in large-scale simulations." Shaviv: "So I'm totally confident after 20 years that the link is there, the sun has a large effect on climate."
2021 Scare: "Imagine seeing the Lincoln Memorial surrounded by churning Potomac waters, or only being able to access the Pentagon by boat...The Pentagon, accessible by boat...The Lincoln Memorial would eventually be on an island in the Potomac River, if world keeps burning fossil fuels."
In his 2019 memoir, A Promised Land, he admits to the unfortunate optics of his trip to the 2009 UN global summit on climate change in Copenhagen. “Has anyone ever considered,” he reportedly asked an aide on the flight to Copenhagen, “the amount of carbon dioxide I’m releasing into the atmosphere as a result of these trips to Europe?” The aide quipped, “You might not want to mention that in your speech tomorrow.” ...
Koonin said atmospheric CO2 will continue to increase whatever draconian solutions governments impose on their citizens, with the poor everywhere suffering most. A fan of mankind, Koonin believes that adaptation to a gradual global warming will allow us to prosper. “This is not at all an unmitigated disaster as people would have you believe,” said Koonin. “We’ll learn to take advantage of whatever changes happen rather than simply tolerate them. That’s what humans do, and we’re pretty good at it.”
