“My final comment on this will be that anyone looking for a perfect fit between expected temperature rise from CO2 concentrations and actual temperature is going to be disappointed.”
Well there’s a cop-out if ever there was one, BRI. Your comment is a complete admission that there is no hard evidence for the claims being made. At least you admit the truth. What’s so absurd about the comments above — from the usual suspects, of course — is that you’re all so keen to support a movement keeping millions in fuel poverty while governments spend trillions that could be used to provide healthcare and save lives.
Meanwhile Elon Musk becomes the world’s richest man while governments look to increase taxes on a gas without which there’d be no human life at all. It’s also nonsense to claim that everyone agrees with man-made global warming, including many scientists. Yet as I’ve said before this is no longer about science. BRI has admitted there’s no hard data to substantiate the claims being made. This turned into a political argument a long time ago.
But let’s put all of that to one side and ask another fundamental question, which is given “the Earth will become uninhabitable” — Deerey’s words, not mine — what exactly are you all doing about it? Let’s face it, we’re talking about the very end of humankind here. Given this is bad as it’s possible to get you must all be taking draconian action to prevent it.
So, none of you are using any form of petrol or diesel transport, private or public (even electric cars still use fossil fuels but we’ll let you off that one for now) and none of you are using gas to cook with or for heating your homes. You all have solar panels and only buy your electricity from a renewables supplier.
If any of you are doing anything other than the above, given the catastrophe facing the planet, there is only one question: why?
