Humor: U.N. Climate delegates unaware of 'the pause' in global warming

Craig Rucker of CFACT writes:

You’d be surprised at what they don’t know at the UN climate conference in Bonn.

Then again, maybe you wouldn’t.

Although the evidence keeps mounting up, most of the delegates in Bonn are unaware that there had been no warming for 16 years.

Watch CFACT’s latest video update from Bonn and see for yourself.

CFACT’s Mission Bonn is your eyes, ears and voice at the UN climate talks and at the ICLEI forum.

  • ICLEI wants to bring UN Agenda 21 to your town. 
  • The UN wants a binding climate treaty signed in Paris by 2015. 
  • The Obama administration has vowed to put the brakes on the U.S. economy in the name of climate with, or without, Congress.

We have much more to report on these crucial developments and the threat they pose to the United States and the free world.

Warming? We don’t need no stinkin warming. We have Models…

DaveG

No surprise here, this is what we are up against from Omama on down!

Dave

The UN is very aware there’s been no increase in global temperatures for 16 years. What makes anyone think they care? Since when have those pesky facts gotten in the way of what they want to believe?

Manfred

Is there a term for ignorant lemmings?

Ryan

So are many climate scientists. Who track temperatures for a living. Perhaps there is a clue in this.

Keith

Among those flat-out denying the facts, a South African delegate said “We’re not convinced that that is significant in terms of dissuading us from our current global goal”.
This is what we’re dealing with, folks. Facts won’t be allowed to get in the way of the Agenda. It doesn’t have anything to do with trying to control temperatures across the globe, if it ever did. They just want your money and your subservience.

John Trigge (in Oz)

Never let the truth get in the way of ‘we who know what is best for everyone’ controlling Gaia which, by the way, will not include anyone not agreeing with our phantasised view of Paradise.

They have an agenda which depends on global warming, facts are of no concern to them!

“It doesn’t have anything to do with trying to control temperatures across the globe, if it ever did. They just want your money and your subservience.”
Putting it another way, they want your soul.

@Gamecock
I’m sure the good lord is manoeuvring himself into such a position as we speak.

Excellent videoclip!!! & not surprising at all!!!
You’d likely get the same response if you asked the same question on the college campus or subway platform.

1min 17 sec – 1 min 25 sec “We are not convinced that is significant in dissuading us from our current global goal”.
That is because the “current global goal” has nothing to do with climate.

Climate scientists who are unaware of the pause in Global Warming should just ask Phil Jones or Rajendra K. Pachauri about it. Both of them have commented on said pause, confirming it thereby.
Ryan, do you think you can convince anyone with freely invented unsourced statements or do you want to show everyone that you have no clue?
http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/nothing-off-limits-in-climate-debate/story-e6frg6n6-1226583112134
You have probably never heard of Mr. Pachauri. He is the current head of the IPCC.

I assume you understand the phrase “swatting Belgium” or do you deny it?

I know I’m getting older, but who the hell thought a bunch of college kids were qualified to meet and make any recommendations (much less decisions) involving trillions of dollars. In the commercial world, you would almost never see people this age involved in such decisions; these kinds of folks might be allowed to sit and observe decisions made be people old enough to have seen a variety of mistakes and thus proceed with caution – aware of what they might wreck with their decisions.

Jim

Where is Rick Mercer when you need him, eh?
(psst, this is an in-joke with my fellow Canuckies.)

The term is wilful ignorance (or “willful” in the King’s English).

topcu

Actually, the global-warming community is well aware of and seems to be panicking about the 16-year pause.
The tone is more shrill than ever, and the push for action “before too late” is building. “Before too late” here actually means before a couple of more years of stagnating temperatures put an end to the industry of global warming.

It was supposed to be “wilful” above, but the spell checker worked its magic before I noticed.
[Or rather, “willfail ignorance”? Mod]

Patrick:Karl marx thought he was right when he was 24. I was a socialist at that age. We were both wrong. He would probably be rovolving in his grave when he saw what communism did. I think the salient point of the video is that they were all quite young as you say and inexperienced. The good news is that they will age and probably admit 100% guilt LOL

William Astley

In reply to:
UN climate change committee representatives appear to be ignorant of the fact that the planet has not warmed for 16 years.
William: Heaven help us if we did not have ‘skeptic’ climate change blogs to force a discussion of the facts and the issues concerning climate ‘change’. Climate change is an excuse for environmental fascism. It is time that we quantified what it would take and the impact on our standard life to reduce world CO2 emissions by 20% to solve a non problem.
In reply to:
“The Obama administration has vowed to put the brakes on the U.S. economy in the name of climate with, or without, Congress.”
William: Fortunately the US is a democracy as opposed to dictatorship. If Obama tries to circumvent the checks and balances in the US constitution he will be impeached.
Climate ‘change’ will be a very interesting issue for the 2016 presidential election for the following reasons:
1) It appears there will be unequivocal significant cooling by 2016 due to the current solar magnetic cycle change. Cooling is a game changer. If there is cooling all bets are off. It is difficult to imagine what the public and media reaction would be cooling. Let’s assume there is still a lack of warming which means there is no warming climate crisis. The planet’s response to a change in forcing is to resist the change by increasing or decreasing planetary cloud cover in the tropics.
2) The reality of what it would take to actually cap world carbon emissions and then reduce world carbon emissions to say 30% is starting to be discussed seriously. There are recently published books from blue ribbon warmist academics that state soft green energy program is a scam (The food to biofuel scam is singled out. That scam will lead to a food shortage and a war for food if it is continued.) The newly published books and an award winning film by a Greenpeace activist, which will be released next week, asserts that Wind farms, photovoltaic, and biofuels cannot possibly replace ‘fossil’ fuel. (The energy required verses engineering issues that have not been discussed and economic (cost) reality of soft energy is not reconcilable.) If there truly is a climate crisis (see point 1 above) the only solution is a massive move to nuclear energy, population controls, and energy rationing.
3) Developing world countries (China, India, Indonesia, and so on.) are requesting a massive yearly transfer of Western GDP as a condition for signing a binding agreement to cap CO2 emissions. Western countries do not have sufficient funds to support their current entitlement programs. The carbon caps would cause a worldwide depression and an astonishing reduction in standard of life in Western countries.

The Green Paradox – A supply side approach to global warming by Hans Werner Simn, published 2012. (Translated from German)
Hans-Werner Sinn is Professor of Economics and Public Finance at the University of Munich and President of the CESIfo Group. Author of Can Germany Be Saved? The Malaise of the World’s First Welfare State (MIT Press) and other books, he is former president of the International Institute of Public Finance, and former chairman of the German Economic Association.
“… to a large extent, these people (William: population increase from 630 million industrial revolution to 7,000 million current) owe their very existence to the exploitation of fossil fuel since the Industrial Revolution, and they can’t be assumed to go away by wishful thinking simple because we now want to close the fossil fuel carbon channel.”
“… The development path described above (William: consequences of the food to biofuel scam) described above is a horrific vision, and one hopes it is not a realistic … … This would pose a problem not only for those who would starve but also for those who would have to defend themselves against starving nations fighting for survival. If we decide to let this market mechanism work, and tolerate the replacement of fossil fuels with biofuel …. … hundreds of millions of people will be affected and they will not merely take to the streets in peaceful protest. They will wage war.”
“…of course the problem of global warming is still there but that problem is secondary to the horrors of starvation in the developing world and the horror of a world war for food.”
“Chapter 2 listed the technology options available to mankind in the form of “green” replacement technology. There are not many options alas. Wind power and photovoltaic devices, unfortunately aren’t serious alternative to fossil power. (William: Author provides facts and analysis to support that assertion. As noted above wind power and photovoltaic devices are viable if we reduce are standard life and reduce world population.) “
“… nuclear fission will work someday, which would be a blessing for the poor and those who otherwise would have to suffer from global warming. At present, however, mankind has no other options to choose policies that would limit biofuel production, resource-intensive growth, and population growth.”

Why would anyone be surprised by those responses?

There is dreadful ignornace of current and the past climate pauses. Even among those who are aware of the current pause of 16 years , some say that the models have included some pause of a decade or decade and a half. Yet i wonder if they are aware that in the period of about 140 years from 1870 -2010 there was no net warming for 90 of those years . There was no warming from 1870-1925 and again no warming 1945-1980. So if you are prjecting climate 100 years ahead you better recognize that these pauses could last much longer than what they have built into thei models

“Useful idiots” – Lenin

At times I entertain myself by listening to these clueless lemmings from NGO’s and environmental bureaucrats on Youtube recordings from various UN meetings and environmental meetings.
And it’s fascinating. Recently I heard one green party activist wanted a “carbon free world” which is hilarious. And of course nobody in the audience reacted, which says something.
These people must be stopped!

Jim

A couple of people have referred to “lemmings” in context with those little rodents who allegedly commit mass suicide periodically. This is a myth created by Walt Disney Productions about 50 years ago. It just goes to show that everyone is subject to catering to the myth, as are the CAGWers.

If models were horses, there would be a winner.
Instead, we get, the woulda/coulda/shoulda excuse.
That, is a game I understand.
Insert politics, the game changes.
The stakes go thru the roof.

This is a bit like walking round the General Synod of the Church of England asking the clerics if they’ve heard the news that God doesn’t actually exist!

Clearly mother knows best.

No warming for 16 years?
According to smoothed HadCRUT3, the lack of warming has only existed for 12 years. 16 years of no warming depends on starting the 16 year period with a century-class El Nino.

Sadly this is the case. But some sceptics actually love the use of terms such as –
“D—-r”
“Delayer”
“Contrarian”
“Big oil shill”
“Part of a well funded d——-t machine”
The fellow travellers in the AGW inanity have dragged a trail of “climate Science” behind them that would fertilise the Sinai desert. A few hundred thousand sceptics know the names and details, but soon billions with Internet access will want to know who was responsible.
The prior use of the language of vilification makes those Web-O-Matic searches Oh-So-Easy!
The “Climate Science” is about to impact the air circulation device. For the fellow travellers in the AGW hoax, the resulting shower is going to be neither short nor sharp. It is going to be heavy, sustained and remarkably adhesive.

One of your posters reported that Bonn delegates were exhorting the meeting to “act now before its too late!” Reminds me of attending a rugby match where a vocal hawker was flogging baseball caps so spectators could avoid being blinded by the setting sun. Finally as the inevitable sunset approached he changed his pitch to “buy now before its too late!” Typical Aussie humour appreciated by the crowd. Cheers from Sydney.

JimF

Look, folks, there are TRILLIONS of dollars out there on the trail to be wrested from producers, and beautiful control over just about anything humans want to do that consumes energy, and glorious bureaucracies to command and control and live the good life while working or running. These vermin will never stop trying to take from you to better their own interests. That’s the black and white picture.

Manfred says: Is there a term for ignorant lemmings?
Yes, it’s “ignorant lemmings.”
@ Ryan: You have probably never heard of Mr. Pachauri. He is the current head of the IPCC.
So he claims 20 to 30 years of no warming for it to be significant? Where do these guys get their degrees? I am incredulous!
@William Astley: Fortunately the US is a democracy as opposed to dictatorship. If Obama tries to circumvent the checks and balances in the US constitution he will be impeached.
Unfortunately he has already circumvented the constitution many times and everyone is afraid to even say “impeachment.” It’s a PC thing and we loose more freedoms everyday.

Although the evidence keeps mounting up, most of the delegates in Bonn are unaware that there had been no warming for 16 years.
With the May anomaly now in, RSS shows a slope of -0.000286453 per year for 16 years and 6 months since December 1996.

P.S. Does anyone know why HadCRUT3 for April is not up yet?
At this point, HadCRUT3 shows 16 years and 1 month of no warming, but that only goes to March.

Donald L. Klipstein says:

16 years of no warming depends on starting the 16 year period with a century-class El Nino.
True, the 16 years includes the El Nino, but the following La Nina cancels it out so we also have 13 years of no warming. So since the El Nino and La Nina over the 3 year period cancel out, why should it not be fair to include both?

We must remember that CO2 controls are the tool they need to make it happen.
