At last, an honest Warmist

Preventing global warming will require a “planned for recession.” A depression, more likely, but that will suit the greens just fine.

Adapting to climate change could have profound repercussions across all parts of society, Professor Kevin Anderson told a Stormont meeting. His talk was organised by Friends of the Earth.

Professor Anderson said: “Whilst orthodox expertise maintains two degrees centigrade is not only possible but achievable without sacrificing the benefits of economic growth and rising prosperity, it is difficult to envisage anything other than a planned economic recession being compatible with two, three and increasingly four degrees centigrade futures.

He said such a fundamental transition left several clear choices.

“To continue the delusion that climate change can be addressed adequately through rhetoric, financial fine-tuning and piecemeal incrementalism; to interpret such conclusions as a message of despair and futility; or to acknowledge that at every level the greatest obstacle to transforming the world is that we lack the clarity and imagination to conceive that it could be different, and that through immediate harnessing of human will and ingenuity we can yet deliver relatively low-carbon and climate-resilient communities.”

The academic is Professor of Energy and Climate Change at the University of Manchester and deputy director at the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research.

According to the university`s website, his research on carbon budgets (five-year restrictions on greenhouse gas emissions) has been pivotal in revealing a widening gulf between political rhetoric on climate change and the reality of rapidly escalating emissions.

“His work makes clear that there is now little to no chance of maintaining the rise in global mean surface temperature at below 2C, despite repeated high-level statements to the contrary,” it added.

“Moreover, Kevin`s research demonstrates how avoiding even a 4C rise demands a radical reframing of both the climate change agenda and the economic characterisation of contemporary society.”

This is a “Friends  of the Earth” greener speaking, mind you, not your crazy blogger who’s been saying this for years. They may love the earth but they hate humanity. All aboard the train to oblivion.

    Dude –
    We waste so much time wondering if global warming is real or not. WHY?? Especially when we can wonder about so many things that are all around us. Truly wondrous, amazing things!!

    Such as, and for example:
    We sent a man to the moon before we put wheels on luggage. Think about that!!

    On average, a beaver can cut down two hundred trees a year. And break your heart on a daily basis.

    Speaking of beaver, the first toilet ever seen on television was on “Leave It To Beaver”. I am not sure if Eddie Haskell dropped a deuce in it or not. And Eddie is NOT Alice Cooper.

    The sound chip in one birthday card that plays music contains more computing power than the allied forces had access to during WW II. Amazing!! And from that, one can deduce if we had music playing birthday cards in 1940, there would have been no WW II !! This is blowing my mind!!

    Al Sharpton is a Reverend. And he has his own TV show. And some people take him seriously.

    A Play Station 3 is more powerful than the fastest supercomputer was in 1997.

    Some people can actually make living selling dirt. Well not you, but some normal people. This may be an urban legend, but I read it on the internet, so it must be true.

    Jesus was born white in the Middle East.

    Marilyn Monroe had six toes. And very nice cans.

    An IPhone is more powerful than the computer used on the Apollo Spacecraft to fly to the moon back in the 1960’s. And I only use it for sexting and surfing porn.

    We have the same number of hairs on our body as a chimpanzee. Well at least the WOP’s do.

    Masturbation actually improves eyesight. I have 20-20!! What about you Ray Charles?

    There are more Chinks who speak American, than there are Americans.

    Women are twice as likely to be diagnosed with depression as men in the United States. What the heck are they depressed about? We do all the work. But this does make me sad.

    With all this snow, the accumulated wealth in Cos Cob has tripled over a 72 hour span.

    Pretty amazing, right?
    Your Pal,

    I’ve noted over the years that they never volunteer to be the first to shed their materialistic lifestyle.
    Plenty of advice for us, though.
