Essay by Eric Worrall
UN climate warnings are like the village communist predicting the imminent demise of capitalism every week – and about as likely to happen.
Scientists deliver ‘final warning’ on climate crisis: act now or it’s too late
IPCC report says only swift and drastic action can avert irrevocable damage to world
Scientists have delivered a “final warning” on the climate crisis, as rising greenhouse gas emissions push the world to the brink of irrevocable damage that only swift and drastic action can avert.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), made up of the world’s leading climate scientists, set out the final part of its mammoth sixth assessment report on Monday.
The comprehensive review of human knowledge of the climate crisis took hundreds of scientists eight years to compile and runs to thousands of pages, but boiled down to one message: act now, or it will be too late.
The UN secretary general, António Guterres, said: “This report is a clarion call to massively fast-track climate efforts by every country and every sector and on every timeframe. Our world needs climate action on all fronts: everything, everywhere, all at once.”

In 2021 it was a “Code Red for Humanity”;
IPCC report: ‘Code red’ for human driven global heating, warns UN chief
Climate change is widespread, rapid, and intensifying, and some trends are now irreversible, at least during the present time frame, according to the latest much-anticipated Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report, released on Monday.
Human-induced climate change is already affecting many weather and climate extremes in every region across the globe. Scientists are also observing changes across the whole of Earth’s climate system; in the atmosphere, in the oceans, ice floes, and on land.
Many of these changes are unprecedented, and some of the shifts are in motion now, while some – such as continued sea level rise – are already ‘irreversible’ for centuries to millennia, ahead, the report warns.
But there is still time to limit climate change, IPCC experts say. Strong and sustained reductions in emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases, could quickly make air quality better, and in 20 to 30 years global temperatures could stabilize.

2020 it was Yale’s turn to issue the final warning;
Mark Lynas’s ‘Final warning’ on climate: ‘It’s all on us, here, now,’ says reviewer
British author Mark Lynas adds another ‘essential’ book for those concerned about our civilization and our planet.

Global warming first became personal for me in 2010. I was backpacking in the incomparable Wind Rivers in western Wyoming. I can’t tell you how much, over many years, I have loved those mountains, the wildest great range of the Lower 48; my tent was the only human thing on the shores of a lake a mile long.
But the human imprint had arrived. Hillsides had turned brown with dying pines, acres were littered with gray dead tree trunks. This was the work of bark beetles no longer controlled by cold winters, and you can see it now all over the American West.

You can find final warnings and last chances stretching all the way back to 1989 if you can find them using one of our woke search engines;
U.N. Predicts Disaster if Global Warming Not Checked
PETER JAMES SPIELMANN June 30, 1989
UNITED NATIONS (AP) _ A senior U.N. environmental official says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000.
Coastal flooding and crop failures would create an exodus of ″eco- refugees,′ ′ threatening political chaos, said Noel Brown, director of the New York office of the U.N. Environment Program, or UNEP.
He said governments have a 10-year window of opportunity to solve the greenhouse effect before it goes beyond human control.
As the warming melts polar icecaps, ocean levels will rise by up to three feet, enough to cover the Maldives and other flat island nations, Brown told The Associated Press in an interview on Wednesday.
Coastal regions will be inundated; one-sixth of Bangladesh could be flooded, displacing a fourth of its 90 million people. A fifth of Egypt’s arable land in the Nile Delta would be flooded, cutting off its food supply, according to a joint UNEP and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study.
″Ecological refugees will become a major concern, and what’s worse is you may find that people can move to drier ground, but the soils and the natural resources may not support life. Africa doesn’t have to worry about land, but would you want to live in the Sahara?″ he said.

Before anyone tries to claim the 1989 claim was not a real UN warning, even Snopes fact checkers admit this was a real UN warning;
Did UN Official Say Nations Would Vanish If Global Warming Not Reversed by 2000?
An Associated Press article from 1989 is popular among climate-change deniers.
In 1989, a senior U.N. environmental official said, “Entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000.”

The year 2000 passed, and no great nations got wiped off the face of the Earth by global warming. Just as nothing bad will happen in the face of the latest UN warnings.
My only concern in this ridiculous charade, is for the naive younger people who take these warnings seriously, and feel distressed that older people are not acting, are not showing any sense of urgency about preventing the imminent end of the world.
But for some people at least, that distress doesn’t last forever. As you get older, you get wiser, at least in terms of learning how to judge the credibility of others. How many times can a rational person watch the UN and other alleged authority figures get it dead wrong, and still give unquestioning acceptance to their latest wild predictions of imminent disaster?
After you’ve lived through thirty years of failed climate crisis predictions, end of world scares, and imminent catastrophes which fail to materialise, most people learn not to take such pronouncements too seriously, whether they admit it or not. My evidence for this assertion is the failure of various Green Parties to sweep the world’s parliaments and congresses.
“…final warning…” promises, promises.
Well you gotta give them some credit for trying a bit of thematic variation by rolling out the old ticking time bomb routine-
UN warns that the ‘climate time bomb’ is ticking (msn.com)
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), made up of the world’s leading climate scientists, set out the final part of its mammoth sixth assessment report on Monday.
And we know what happened to the mammoth!
Actually what was released yesterday was the “Synthesis Report” which is just the Summary for Policy Makers (SPM) and supporting documents. The true ‘meat’ of the 6th Assessment, the Working Group (WG) reports have been released over the past year. The WGs are written by scientists and technicians, but SPM is written by politicians. The WG Reports are full of error bars, modifiers, and statements couched in uncertainty. The SPM ignores all that and much of what is actually in WG Reports and scream certain doom and gloom. This is the same old kabuki dance we see with each Assessment and all the overwrought headlines and untruthful articles are based on SPM. The IPCC is counting on the public and news media to not bother reading the technical papers and just accept the Summary.
Not only that, but the IPCC now goes back and modifies the WG Reports to be consistent with the alarmism and nonsense in the SPM.
That’s interesting. So it will be impossible to prove that the SPM doesn’t match the technical reports. Have they ever done this for past SPM releases?
Final Code Red IPCC warning.
The IPCC problem is they have tried that many times before. But:
I still meet people who says the Hot Spot is real and according to Professor Sherwood who uses hobo math to “correct” all of the balloon data problems are visible in the atmosphere but amazingly the NOAA after a dozen years still doesn’t recognize his silly claims.
Even some government technical experts at NOAA still have a gag-reflex. But I expect most, if not all, of them to be DEI-ed out by the time of the next U.S. National Climate Assessment (NCA). Has anybody come up with schemes that would force the politicians and Deep State to respond to the comments on the NCA Drafts? I’d love for them to try to prove weather extremes have worsened over the last 100+years. The current tricks are using unadjusted damage costs and using sparse early EMData.
The most publicized IPCC prediction (ECS) is for 200 to 400 years in the future. They usually forget to mention that.
There 70 year prediction (TCS), when using reasonable RCP 4.5, has been similar to the actual warming rate since 1975.
So the IPCC model based TCS prediction appears to be accurate
And the TCS prediction does NOT reflect any climate emergency
Yet the IPCC rhetoric, since 1988, has only predicted a climate emergency, contradicting their own TCS prediction.
Since 1988, no climate emergency has shown up
That’s 34+ of wrong climate predictions in a row.
Since the climate predictions we hear are for 200 to 400 years in the future, the fact that they seem to be wrong for the first 34+ years (since 1988) does not prove the prediction is wrong.
A long term climate prediction takes a lot of time to be proven wrong. Maybe 100+ years. That’s why the alleged climate emergency is always ‘coming in the future’. And always will be.
“There 70 year prediction (TCS), when using reasonable RCP 4.5, has been similar to the actual warming rate since 1975.
So the IPCC model based TCS prediction appears to be accurate”
Perhaps purely coincidental.
It’s also similar to the warming rate from 1910 to 1940.
And it is similar to the warming rate ending in the 1880’s.
Between those time periods, the Earth’s climate cooled by about 2.0C.
So just because it warms for a few decades does not mean CO2 has anything to do with it, other than imperceptibly.
The AMO reasonably explains the variation in the graph. Why this isn’t widely understood is beyond me
You are correct. And I don’t understand it, either.
It is widely understood; it is just ignored to maintain the narrative of CAGW. Ignoring data is the same as falsifying data.
“Final Code Red IPCC warning.
The IPCC problem is they have tried that many times before.”
But …This time it’s a different shade of red !!
I thought these final warnings/chances went back further to 1968 when Stanford academic Paul Ehrlich made all sorts of doomsday prophesies, none of which has come to pass. In addition other alarmists backed him up for at least two decades longer, and they were just as wrong, so only the young, gullible and impressionable believed them. Yet closer examination of their lifestyles was/is likely to prove that they themselves haven’t taken the type of action that supposedly would help alleviate the climate problem; that’s for other people.
they themselves haven’t taken the type of action that supposedly would help alleviate the climate problem;
The alleged climate problem is a leftist propaganda tool to obtain more government power and control. It works well. Why would the “winners” want their alleged problem to disappear when it is working so well? Leftists never le a crisis go to waste. When there is no crisis, they create one out of thin (hot) air.
Remember, Ehrlich’s frequent co-author was John Holdren whom BHO chose as his “Science Czar”. The same John Holdren who made personal attacks on Willie Soon and Roger Pielke Jr because they dared publish (and testify to Congress) data contrary to “the narrative”.
Global warming catastrophe is always 10 years away
No decimal point means the 10 year number is malarkey
I learned that while getting my BS degree
No decimal places is BS
If they had predicted 10.853 years, that would be real science
Three decimal places is real science
And I’d have to speed up my construction of an ark.
This is a serious comment,
The mass of a proton is 1.67262192 × 10-27 kilograms. That’s real science.
I always wondered what was the mass of a massless particle.
otherwise, just found this:
You are right, I read it as a photon. Protons do have mass.
A 15 micron photon as energy equal to 0.0827 ev
or 1.32x 10^-20 watt sec. Takes a lot of photons to radiate 1 watt/m2/sec
the speed of light =
299 792 458 m / s
No decimal point. Not real science.
That’s the “accepted” value of the speed of light. It isn’t a measured value. It is defined. That’s because relativity shows that it is impossible, in principle, to measure the speed of light.
Is that “real science”?
87.324% of statistics are just made up.
Where’s the final warning to Climategate individuals who engaged in data mischief?
Yes, let’s not forget who started this whole human-caused climate change hoax. Without the bastardized global temperature record, the climate change alarmists would have nothing to show there is any hint of a climate change emergency. The bastardized temperature record is all they have, and we know who ginned this climate change scam up.
Climategate is NEVER mentioned in the MSM. I wouldn’t know about it if a skeptic hadn’t pointed me to this site and a few others. I read a lot of magazines and newspapers and watch the news on many channels- and I’ve never seen it mentioned in any of them.
Climategate is not in the media because they are a complicit partner; however, folks on Twitter are enjoying my “dirty laundry” reminders … https://twitter.com/_ClimateCraze/status/1637811180277313537
Good posting, Eric. I did my MSc thesis in the 7 Devils mountains of western Idaho. Seven (7) Devils got its name from a local Indigenous group that had some domestic sheep, and this boy was sent up into the mountains to watch over them. The boy was frightened and did not to stay alone in the Mountains, so he ran down to the village and told everyone there was an awful devil in the Mountains. The men went up into the Mountains but could not find the devil, so they sent the boy back up. Soon he came running down with the same story about a devil. Finally, on the 7th time the boy ran down to the village the people figured out it was a false report, and thereafter named the mountains the 7 Devils Mountains. So, where are we? COP 27? Still telling whoppers, are they? Looks like the indigenous tribe was at least 3 times smarter than the IPCC. Just saying.
I love it, have to pay a visit one day if I’m ever in the area.
To be fair, this is only the Sixth Assessment. We have to wait for the next one (several years off) before the light bulb clicks on. 😉
A lot of people have made a nice career on the back of it.
The ability to predict is essential to a valid theorem.
Yep. You cannot model the climate if you don’t understand it….obviously. I hope the regular rag bag of climastrology apologists are paying attention…..
That’s why I have called the so-called models Climate Confuser Games for the past 25 years.
Of course you can model what you don’t understand. That’s why we have climate models.
you can model them as long as you don’t assume they are correct and that they can’t produce data, which is often claimed
If the details of what every climate change variable do to the average temperature are not known, a correct climate prediction is meaningless — just a lucky guess..
and of course there are many climate variables we don’t even know exist
I wonder which models predicted the heavy snow in CA this winter?
In the 1960’s, I was exposed to ecologists predicting famine by the early 1970’s, with Paul Erhlich, and Jehovah’s Witnesses predicting Jesus would come back by 1975.
I reached the conclusion neither had the least idea of what was going to happen, and the only way to judge predictions was by their track record.
No human has a good track record for predicting the long term future (beyond the next three months)
“IT’S TOUGH TO MAKE PREDICTIONS, ESPECIALLY ABOUT THE FUTURE” – Yogi Berra.
And after following the “projections” of the IPCC for some 20 years, I was not too surprised when some of the same con artists and their political supporters started wailing and gnashing teeth over the WuFlu Plandemic.
But even I was taken aback when one of the boffins picked to start the Project Fear agit-prop was our old chum Professor Pantsdown Ferguson from Imperial College, with his old very dodgy and incompetent computer modelling screaming doom to terrified Journos and Arts Grad Politicians.
I am not aware of any previous shroud waving model Ferguson had produced that was less than one order of magnitude- and often up to five orders of magnitude over stated.
How strange that of all the “scientists” in all the World, Ferguson had been chosen.
Will he, and the mendacious scum who picked him ever be held to account?
Somehow I doubt it.
Professor Ferguson from Imperial College has an impeccable record of computer prediction …
… Wrong every time !!
The lost opportunity(s) cost of this IPPC and related schist is staggering.
Then add the money spent on unreliable energy and things destroyed, such
as coal facilities blown to pieces. Makes one want to upchuck.
It’s a Horror Show.
300,000 windmills up and more to come. A Horror Show.
And all unnecessary as there is no evidence that CO2 is anything other than a benign gas essential for life, and therefore, there is no need to build windmills in order to reduce CO2.
So much that could be added to this conversation but what is top of my list is if politics & science are mixed, it is no longer science & any pronouncements absolutely can not be trusted.
Do your own due diligence & decide if we have a crisis or not. Don’t take anyone’s word for it – check the data & see what it says.
I am fully confident that the claims of the alarmists do not hold up to the critical analysis of the observed data
The problem is subsidies. You get more of what you subsidize, and the only way to fill the demand is to cheapen the supply so the lesser researchers and students can find some suitable field. Same reason for so many woke fields and students; when you’ve run out of good students, the marginal ones have to make shit up.
“the marginal ones have to make shit up”
Then they move on to become public school teachers.
“Do your own due diligence & decide if we have a crisis or not.
Don’t take anyone’s word for it – check the data & see what it says.”
The problem is that NOAA, NASA & etc. “shade” the information they give out. Cherry-picking time periods and locations they can “prove” any damned thing they want.
Scientific analysis not necessary
Eight billion people have lived with climate change for every year of their lives. If there was any climate emergency, certainly several billion people would have noticed, and could easily describe what the emergency was.
But there are no witnesses to any climate emergency, even though one has been predicted for over 50 years so far, since the coming global cooling crisis predicted in the early 1970s.
That is a lot of wrong predicting.
Now come along Richard, are you forgetting the most famous observer/witness of ‘climate change’?
Our very own Greta can not only see climate change she can even see CO2.
Now with that kind of skill set on display who are we mere mortals, to challenge such vision?
Almost every year I see record global grain harvests, sometimes in all grains, sometimes in just some of them. I haven’t tried to plot it but I would venture a guess that if you plot global grain harvests against CO2 growth you would find pretty good correlation.
Lots of the climate alarmists say that temperature growth and CO2 are correlated so there must be a causal relationship. I wonder if they would say the same thing about grain harvests.
The charlatans have convinced the gullible public that every extreme weather event is “unprecedented” and visual proof disastrous Climate Change is occurring.
How many politicians and “activist scientists” have said “Just look out your window..” and use that as a premise for some ridiculous conclusion or justification for a new anti fossil fuel policy.
Data by reputable scientists (Christie, Lindzen, Pielke Jr et al) are never addressed, rather the weapon of choice is ad hominem attack.
The UN and the IPCC in particular are despicable, their time has past, it’s time for them to go.
The UN and IPCC are symptoms of leftist politics
That’s true but they didn’t have to be.
The structure and motivations of all bureaucratic government is directed to socialistic outputs, no matter the initial policy and standards. The larger and more unaccountable a government becomes, the more Leftists move in. The old “one man one vote once.”
Somewhere there has to be a government department that is good, I’m holding out hope.
It’s the Final Countdown!
https :// youtu.be /9jK-NcRmVcw
And to make matters worse the sky is falling!
The sky is falling and it’s worse than we thought
Although we know this is true, worse than we thunk and The Science is Absolutely Settled, we still need more money so we can make even more scary prognoses even more quickly!
Send money NOW!
Predicting world-ending catastrophes has been a tough act. I recall the world was to end in March 1982 when the planets aligned. The same year the UN predicted for global warming, 2000, the technological world was ending due to the Y2K, which btw also soaked up a lot of money for folks to “protect” against it’s calamities. The only thing that keeps these folks doing it is that the general public seems to forget past claims fairly easily.
With today’s latest IPCC report, we can now update the IPCC’s predictions for the year 2023.

Anybody want to venture a guess about what the IPCC report will say in 2024?
What the condition of our planet will be then?
Whether or not the sun will rise in the east, set in the west?
Actually, for the analogy to be correct, the prediction would need to be that the sun will rise in the western sky and set in the east (-:
They could have got one prediction right, if they had claimed climate change will cause hair loss, as that’s all I’ve observed in the last 30 years.
I donated my hair to science
I told science that in my will I would leave my hair to them but they said they would contest the will.
I donated mine to science fiction.
That’s interesting because my hair has grown much longer on my head and face over the last few years
If CO2 can cause more floods and more droughts, it stands to reason CO2 can cause more hair loss and more hair growth
That is hilarious, Mike! 🙂
Summary for Policymakers A.1.1:
Using a rough and ready method I get 0.7C – 0.8C.
Maybe there is a trick I’ve missed.
Yiu have to make up the 1850 to 1900 average because the data are not fit for science. But they are spun into an accurate global average temperature for propaganda purposes. The 1850 to 1900 average is for the Northern Hemisphere only and could have a +/- 1 degree C. margin of error, not +/- 0.1 degree C.
The only certainty about temperatures before 1900, is that every time the Climate “Scientists” look at ’em, they wonderfully get a bit chillier.
At least 3 temperature set producers publish global data from 1850 (HadCRUT, NOAA and BEST). They all publish separate data for northern and southern hemispheres. HadCRUT publishes its error margins and for 1850-1900 these are +/- 0 23C (global).
Another trendologist quoting impossibly small “error margins”.
Just pointing out that what Richard Greene said is easily disprovable nonsense. None of you self-declared ‘skeptiks’ even bothered to check, apparently…. For that I got 5 down-votes. Yeh!
A few hundred thermometers mostly in Europe and N. America, and measured to 1 degree C, cannot possibly provide an accuracy of 0.01C.
Just because 3 separate groups do the same invalid math, does not make the math valid.
You’re confusing accuracy and precision. Common enough round here. These are averages, not measurements.
It’s actually +0.95, but that’s HadCRUT4 which is now archived. HadCRUT5 has greater global coverage and gives a central estimate of +1.12C (2011-2020 warmer than 1850-1900). I suspect IPCC is using a combination of data sets though.
Apparently, the more people who use a data set, the more accurate it becomes.
2021 Worse than we thought
2022 Worse than worse than we thought
2023 Worse than worse than worse than we thought
Any predictions for 2024?
”Any predictions for 2024?”
The UN and the IPCC are *so* predictable.
My guess is 2024 will be worse than we thought, according to these same liars.
As I’ve said before, it is amazing how much time we always seem to have left when we’re running out of it.
Is this the final warning, or the final final warning, or the final final final warning, or the final final final final warning, ….. ad infinitum?
There are existential threats to humanity out there but climate change is not one of them.
An unexpected volcanic eruption of unprecedented emissions, could be one. A meteorite strike is anther, or a runaway nuclear conflict would be a real risk.
What we know for certain is, with an average world lower atmospheric temp i.e. the part we live and play in, is just 15 deg. C. The average here in the UK is barely 10 deg. C, if anyone feels a degree or two of additional warmth is going to be bad, they should look at the climate history we have good data on. There, people who are prepared to see, will notice more people suffering when the temperatures drop a degree or two, than when they warm up by the same amount.
I would simply ask. Would our concerned ‘scientists’ who believe there is trouble ahead if we do not adopt a zero CO2 life, show us how it is to be achieved.
Let us have an area of the world set aside, give us a ‘living’ example of the climate alarmist’s dream, a place where no CO2 is generated by fossil fuels. Let us choose somewhere reflective changes, reflective of the task the ‘scientists’ claim is urgently needed to, save the world.
Why not choose New York or failing that California? NY would be best as that is where the UN is based and they could show us the way.
There you go, provide the world with a living example of how to do it Mr Guterres. You may need to rethink what floor your office is on in the UN block. Climbing stairs will be allowed but can be quite tiring and time consuming without fossil fuel provided aid.
Yes, yes, but I shall wait for the final, final warning before even laughing.
Here in Greta Britain, we have learnt to wait till we see the whites of their eyes.
Five takeaways from report:
Apparently the current levels of carbon dioxide haven’t been seen in 2 million years, is that true?
Perhaps the hominids of that era all drove SUVs…
No, it would be the mammoths, rhinoceros and hippopotami that were roaming across parts of the U.K. and doggerland joining us to Europe.
And our friends in Beijing doing exactly what?
Our friends in Beijing are enjoying the show. They are amazed and pleased to watch the Western Democracies self-destruct attempting to control CO2 (among other huge errors in judgement).
One thing China is doing is beginning to reclaim all the land that Russia stole from it. According to the YouTube site of Jake Broe: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KJq5kHSgUZ4&t=983s
China now says maps showing east Asia must now use the original names of all that land- not Russian names- and the maps should show the old boundaries of outer Manchuria.
Putin better watch his back. Xi may be a fair-weather friend.
Either party could pull a “Barbarossa.”
Desperate to get it over the line before AMO cooling starts
If it continues to cool, the UN and the IPCC are going to have some explaining to do.
Not really Tom, as we have seen so many times before. Global Cooling is caused by man made climate change, just as Global Warming was.
That CO2 is such a perfect villain it can cause any condition the Climate Alarmists claim it does.
I would love to hear the alarmists try to explain it if the temperatures continued to cool for another decade or so.
Not that I like cold weather, I don’t, but I lived through the cool 1970’s and it wasn’t much different from today. The scientists noticed some changes but most people didn’t notice.
A prominent alarmist some time ago claimed that even a couple of decades of cooling would not negate the human-caused climate change hypothesis. Of course, that’s what we would expect these liars to say. They will try to extend the lie as long as they can.
We haven’t had any “hottest year evah!” proclamations from NOAA and NASA Climate in a while, have we. I bet those data mannipulators are pulling their hair out trying to figure a way to inject more warming into the temperature record.
Crimes against Humanity, is what these temperature record lies and distortions really are.
“Not that I like cold weather, I don’t, but I lived through the cool 1970’s and it wasn’t much different from today. The scientists noticed some changes but most people didn’t notice.”
Tire dealers in the Central Plains noticed. Lots of demand for studded snow tires!
Yeah, I remember a snow storm around 1978 that dropped about two feet of snow here where I live in Oklahoma. It paralyzed movement around here for a couple of days.
But, that’s not the first time we have had a big snow storm. We had them in the past and we will have them in the future.
It’s right and good to mock the latest “final warning.”
But it is not the failure of the serial predictions of warming doom since the late 1980’s by which we can know they were wrong and are still wrong.
It was a fundamental error – a misconception – from the beginning to have ever supposed that heat energy could be made to accumulate on land and in the oceans to harmful effect by what non-condensing greenhouse gases do in the atmosphere.
So let’s expose and dismantle the core error from which all these absurd predictions arose in the first place: that the static radiative effect experienced at the surface controls the outcome in a dynamic system.
I’ve been to a lot of hot air balloon extravaganzas. I’ve learned that hot air rises. Hotter air rises further and faster. As the air rises it cools. It actually cools without rising, just not as fast. As the air cools it sinks. As it sinks it absorbs heat thus cooling the surrounding area as an equilibrium is reached.
It *is* a dynamic system. It’s not apparent to me that the climate models or radiation budget models handle all the dynamics well. When you are speaking of *very* small differences that are almost, if not totally, unmeasurable then not handling the dynamics well means you can’t actually tell what is going on. It all becomes guesses – and subjective guesses at that!
I think the IPCC are missing a trick publishing these regular reports of doom. What they should do is build a super computer to work out what Climate Change actually is, they could give the computer a name, the name Deep Thought comes to mind and it could run it’s program for say seven and a half million years (far enough into the future to keep all the climate scientists in work) . After Deep Thought has given it’s answer it could then go on and design the most powerful computer ever built (with no exceptions) to work out what the question was.
Has the level of alarm of the Climate Howlers reached 11 yet? My hearing isn’t what it used to be. Maybe all that Climate Caterwauling has something to do with it.
Bolty asks Lindzen what should we do about the dooming?

“Climate crisis”(TM) is another Ponzi scheme: it will survive only as long as new idiots will come to publicize it. When that chain of newcomers is broken all he system falls apart.
Hmm, they are queuing up to join – and, as any leave, there are many more to replace them. As Einstein possible said, there only two things that are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, of which he wasn’t sure about the first.
Canada’s Minister of All Things Climate Change, Stephen Guilbeault, is preparing to double down on Net Zero following the latest IPCC report. Carbon taxes on all fuels rise significantly on April 1, the same day he gets a substantial raise in pay. This madness has gone far beyond being the punchline in a bad joke and is forcing people into poverty. How do we take back the narrative from the trillion dollar green industry?
“Man goes mad in herds and recovers slowly one by one.”
I believe Charles MacKay had it right, but even he did not envision that academia and public school teachers would be completely indoctrinated and backed by the governments of most developed countries to instill fear in the next generation.
The hoax may have reached critical mass where it is self perpetuating, at least for OUR lifetimes.
You are reacting like it’s some sort of a new thing. Yet formation of a State totally-not-Church began with the Mugwumps and steadily advanced in USA. And didn’t the totally-not-Vatican in USA increasingly convert or displace competing institutions everywhere else after World War Ⅱ, as even Royal Society was washed downstream from Harvard?
They preach about an imminent catastrophe just as regularly and with the same fervor as another church would do about the second advent of JC that was always going to happen soon. So, repent your environmental sins and give them money to save the world!
By the way, they only have been doing it for something like 50 years… the other church has done it for a couple of millennia, and they still have not given up.
Fairly small comfort, but there was actually an article in The Daily Telegraph yesterday that was quite scathing of the IPCC report.
Not to get too excited, there is the usual ‘climate change is real’ and ‘we must do something about it’ stuff, and the basis of the article is that business, not gevernment, will solve the problem – well it was on the Telegraph business pages so only to be expected. However in making this case the author does have a good go at the IPCC and the governments behind it.
Quote: “The trouble is, the IPCC is not quite the expert or impartial body it is portrayed as, nor are its findings always impeccably “scientific”. It turns out that the report was delayed by several months following a “strike” by some of the support staff, while there were long disputes between the different authors about its final verdict…
In reality, there are two big problems with the IPCC’s work, and indeed with the wider drive towards net zero. The first is that it is driven by grand-standing politicians, committees and global bureaucrats. There is constant pressure to ramp up the alarmism, to double down on hysteria, and to fix every problem with targets and more state spending.”
OK so it’s only a diagreement over whether business or government should lead us over the cliff, but it does show that not only sceptics find the IPCC report less than honest.
My first thought was, surely such an article couldn’t have been written by AEP? And I was right, it wasn’t 🙂
how many of these “final warnings” have we had?
I seem to remember someone documenting them but don’t have the reference anymore. For all the good it does when trying to discuss this with a true believer.
“China’s final warning” (Russian: последнее китайское предупреждение) is a Russian proverb that originated as a Soviet political joke in the Soviet Union in the 1950s, referring to a warning that carries no real consequences.
Hey, the grifters are not raking in enough of the rube’s bucks, so gotta stoke the fear a little more to get the rape in high gear. Nothing more, nothing less. Key up the calliope and bring on the clowns. Their credibility is on the wane and they are in desperation mode most everywhere in the world. Simple answer.
The University of Helsinki confirmed this anew on Monday by announcing that it was giving climate hysteric Greta Thunberg an honorary doctorate…in theology.
Well. Now that sorta puts things in perspective.

IPCC is not boy cry “wolf”, it is chicken little “the sky is falling”.
The success record for the UN in averting crises is what exactly? They have failed politically, economically, socially and now scientifically,in an effort to improve the human condition.. Now, with the fearmongering over CO2, a false crisis btw — they now want to starve plants worldwide. Plants of the world unite before it’s too late(humans could unite against climate alarmism propaganda too, if they were less like sheeple); so maybe the plants can do a better job of resistance then.
IPCC: Impoverish yourself now, or the doggy gets it.
Pat, I’ve noticed that whenever I point a gun at one of my dogs, he shies and gets that same look. I wonder if it is picking up some of my emotion about the gun’s power?
Has any entity studied the physical and economic impacts of exceeding 1.5 ℃ above the Little Ice Age? I’m told we’re already 2/3 of the way there. All I’ve seen is an improved biosphere. Where are the negatives? I assume some SWAGs can be found in academia. Since there has been no increases to extreme weather frequency, intensity nor duration over a period of 100+ years, I wonder where they can get cost estimates as a result of current atmospheric concentrations of CO2.

The IPCC cant be serious that this is “a final warning for humanity” when at the same time they give China and India the green light to continue burning as much coal as they like, build as many coal fired generators as you like. What a joke the IPCC are. The time bomb is ticking on the IPCC’s credibility.
Only impoverishment, austerity and privation for the West, while China builds 100 coal fired generators a year.
China has been building coal plants faster than Carter can make those little liver pills
