IPCC: We Call Your Bluff (COP 27 alarmism in the air)

From MasterResource

By Robert Bradley Jr. — October 17, 2022

“Any further delay in concerted global action will miss a brief and rapidly closing window to secure a liveable future,” said Hans-Otto Pörtner. (IPCC, below)

… government (coercive) mitigation policy is being left behind by self-interested energy actions around the world. Wind and solar and batteries … are running into limits. A new public policy era post-COP27 is called for. (RLB, below)

The UN Conference of Parties to be held in Cairo, Egypt, next month (COP27) has long been in preparation. Net Zero may be a dead he/she walking (Halloween fright?), but expect no backtracking from the Church of Climate. “Don’t Look Up” … IPCC reports … ExxonKnew … it is a one-after-the-other global media campaign to not focus on the Green Energy Crises or the tripartite fossil-fuel boom but on … Net Zero.

I was reminded of this upon reading an IPCC press release earlier this year announcing a new IPCC report, which followed another dire IPCC report a few months earlier. Do-or-die Deja vu all over again….

The February 28, 2022, press release follows:

Climate change: a threat to human wellbeing and health of the planet. Taking action now can secure our future

BERLIN, Feb 28 – Human-induced climate change is causing dangerous and widespread disruption in nature and affecting the lives of billions of people around the world, despite efforts to reduce the risks. People and ecosystems least able to cope are being hardest hit, said scientists in the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report, released today.
“This report is a dire warning about the consequences of inaction,” said Hoesung Lee, Chair of the IPCC. “It shows that climate change is a grave and mounting threat to our wellbeing and a healthy planet. Our actions today will shape how people adapt and nature responds to increasing climate

The world faces unavoidable multiple climate hazards over the next two decades with global warming of 1.5°C (2.7°F). Even temporarily exceeding this warming level will result in additional severe impacts, some of which will be irreversible. Risks for society will increase, including to infrastructure and low-lying coastal settlements.

The Summary for Policymakers of the IPCC Working Group II report, Climate Change 2022: Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability was approved on Sunday, February 27 2022, by 195 member governments of the IPCC, through a virtual approval session that was held over two weeks starting on February 14.

Urgent action required to deal with increasing risks Increased heatwaves, droughts and floods are already exceeding plants’ and animals’ tolerance thresholds, driving mass mortalities in species such as trees and corals. These weather extremes are occurring simultaneously, causing cascading impacts that are increasingly difficult to manage.

They have exposed millions of people to acute food and water insecurity, especially in Africa, Asia, Central and South America, on Small Islands and in the Arctic.

To avoid mounting loss of life, biodiversity and infrastructure, ambitious, accelerated action is required to adapt to climate change, at the same time as making rapid, deep cuts in greenhouse gas emissions. So far, progress on adaptation is uneven and there are increasing gaps between action taken and what is needed to deal with the increasing risks, the new report finds. These gaps are largest among lower-income populations.
The Working Group II report is the second installment of the IPCC’s Sixth Assessment Report (AR6), which will be completed this year.

“This report recognizes the interdependence of climate, biodiversity and people and integrates natural, social and economic sciences more strongly than earlier IPCC assessments,” said Hoesung Lee. “It emphasizes the urgency of immediate and more ambitious action to address climate risks. Half measures are no longer an option.”

Safeguarding and strengthening nature is key to securing a liveable future There are options to adapt to a changing climate. This report provides new insights into nature’s potential not only to reduce climate risks but also to improve people’s lives.

“Healthy ecosystems are more resilient to climate change and provide life-critical services such as food and clean water”, said IPCC Working Group II Co-Chair Hans-Otto Pörtner. “By restoring degraded ecosystems and effectively and equitably conserving 30 to 50 per cent of Earth’s land, freshwater and ocean habitats, society can benefit from nature’s capacity to absorb and store carbon, and we can accelerate progress towards sustainable development, but adequate finance and political support are essential.”

Scientists point out that climate change interacts with global trends such as unsustainable use of natural resources, growing urbanization, social inequalities, losses and damages from extreme events and a pandemic, jeopardizing future development.

“Our assessment clearly shows that tackling all these different challenges involves everyone – governments, the private sector, civil society – working together to prioritize risk reduction, as well as equity and justice, in decision-making and investment,” said IPCC Working Group II Co-Chair Debra Roberts. “In this way, different interests, values and world views can be reconciled. By bringing together scientific and technological know-how as well as Indigenous and local knowledge, solutions will be more effective. Failure to achieve climate resilient and sustainable development will result in a suboptimal future for people and nature.” ….

Final Comment

The climate charge of market failure and government correction is a siren song. In the real world, market failure reflects analytic failure (climate exaggeration) and government failure (political problems).

The best climate policy is no government policy, do no harm. Market adaptation, free market style, is the easy choice that should have been made decades ago. Wealth is health, after all, and civil society can address real problems rather than distant, hypothetical ones.

Today, more than ever, government (coercive) mitigation policy is being left behind by self-interested energy actions around the world. Wind and solar and batteries, never environmentally kosher, are running into limits. A new public policy era post-COP27 is called for.

In the future, fossil fuels will become a scarce commodity. One obvious replacement is nuclear. Embracing nuclear now would push that date of certain scarcity out, but the Green Mob doesn’t consider any such thing. One has to wonder why.

Richard Page

The ‘replacement’ renewables all use minerals that are far scarcer than hydrocarbon fuels and, yet, are being pushed as a replacement for them. Hydrocarbons are not scarce, despite repeated scare stories since the 60’s of ‘peak oil’; we have barely scratched the surface of deposits available, limiting ourselves to those easily accessible on land and in shallow waters. Future exploitation of hydrocarbons will, as markets and technology develop, extend to the less accessible deposits and push the ‘date of scarcity’ even further ahead. Nuclear, although very convenient for many uses, is unlikely to totally replace hydrocarbons, especially in the near future. We need hydrocarbon fuels now as well as developing nuclear capability – there are no viable alternatives. The green mentality is self destructive and misanthropic, and the IPCC/WEF/UN jumping on the bandwagon as a means of serving their own (somewhat different) interests are playing a very dangerous game with our very future.

Nuclear for electricity & some electric cars, natural gas for heat, hot water etc. Oil for aviation & transportation, coal for synthetic fuels and organic feed stock. Relying on government edict to tell how that mix will actually play out would be stupid.

There’s still plenty of relatively high-sulfur coal in the east US. Fluidized-bed coal plants mixing limestone in the bed can remove the sulfur (as calcium sulfate) without needing the typical, massive wet de-sulfurization structures. But further improvement/research on fluidized-bed coal boilers was stopped.

Risks for society will increase if we continue to listen to political operatives pushing the Green New Deal. Windmills and solar are ruinous to the environment and cannot supply the power necessary for a modern society.
Low-lying coastal settlements have always had to balance the risk of being wiped out due to the weather and living where they want for whatever reasons.

These morons are pushing for a stone age society where life for most people will be short and brutal.

“Capitalism, they posit, succeeds not only because it is efficient but
because it correctly locates the source of wealth in the human mind”

This whole energy fiasco shows why the efficiency of a free society
allocating its resources well leads to prosperity whereas tyranny leads
to wasting resources, with poverty being its end result. Tyrants can
confiscate physical wealth & control people but they can never confiscate
all the ideas that can lead to greater efficiency, locate new sources
of wealth, and/or solve problems.

It began by The Team™ declaring the “science is settled” & censoring
others, thereby discounting (& wasting) others’ mental abilities by
squashing the basis of science itself- skepticism. They shifted resources
to prove they were right versus using those resources to advance our
knowledge of earth’s climate. They decided their supposed problem could
be solved with going “Nut 0” ASAP without a workable plan, thus wasting
even more resources. Since tyrants don’t see the need to have safeguards
in place to correct for obvious mistakes, they’ll blindly do everything
in their power to continue forward with their inefficient & wasteful
plans. This will only lead to much more waste, misery & poverty.

Tyranny’s main problem is that poor decisions made that misuse & waste
resources have no way to correct for them. Malthusians do the same
thing when making dire predictions as they see people as a burden, not
an asset. Those very same people may eventually find solutions to
avert the calamity Malthusians foresee as a certainty. So the key is to
never underestimate the wealth contained in a fellow human’s mind!

For those of us old enough to remember real pollution problems, the sin is how this obscures some of the to varying degrees sublethal ‘toxins.’ These are not so obvious and can be very difficult. I have a 1967 paper, among many others pointing out how the obscure “microecological” need more investigation.This one is interesting, unless contamination may be real science, but usual bad exotic. “…caffeine emerged as a significant invasive algal-produced metabolite.” On a coral reef.

In 2007 the Australian Prof Tim Flannery (The Climate Council) a palaeontologist and not involved in any of the main sciences looking at climate predicted:
Even the rain that falls isn’t actually going to fill our dams or river systems (2007)

Wiki on rare occasions slips up with the truth. They will have to scrub this entry:
Drought has severely depleted the level of the (Warragamba NSW) dam at times: on 8 February 2007 it recorded an all-time low of 32.5% of capacity. On 2 March 2012, it overflowed for the first time in fourteen years. It overflowed again in 2016, March 2021 and March 2022.

Richard Green, these are examples of what radical environmentalists say. These claims are far different than the list you gave me.

Radical environmentalists are right about several things:
— There is a greenhouse effect
— CO2 is a greenhouse gas
— CO2 probably contributed to the global warming since 1850
That’s about it.

Can some one here please explain to the readers ,how global warming can bring about late spring frosts in temperate countries .
Today here in New Zealand our communist Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern was interviewed on the midday Country session on the radio .
She blamed the early October frosts which have caused immense harm to Kiwi fruit ,grapes and other frost tender fruit and vegetables .
This was caused by a polar blast from Antarctica which also brought snow to the Southern Alps.
We were told 20 years ago that our children would not know what snow was in the future .
The government is hell bent on reducing emissions from our farmed animals and fertilizer use .
If the government get their way sheep and cattle numbers will drop by 10% prices .
Jacinda tried to say that we would receive 10% more for our exported beef and lamb because of the lower carbon footprint .
The interviewer asked how would that come about when we all ready have the lowest carbon foot print in the world on beef and lamb .
This government is kept in power by the green party which is anti farming and between them they are trying to destroy New Zealands economy which rely s on agricultural exports .
Now back to COP27 .James Shaw our climate change minister “coped ” a lot of flack because he took a plane load of hangers on to Glasgow and I expect it will be no difference this time.
