And there you have it. The typical response to anyone who dares the question the religion of “man-made global warming” or “man-made climate change”.
I say “religion” because despite IA’s faith there there is actually zero evidence for the predictions being made about the future by climate ‘scientists’. All we have is computer models and as any proper scientist will tell you, whenever you use a model you MUST provide the confidence intervals for the results. Yet the climate ‘scientists’ never do so; and that is because the confidence intervals will be close to zero. That isn’t my opinion but a fact for any model with so many variables looking so far into the future.
On top of all that BRI has now said we can’t expect any close correlation between CO2 and temperature — and he’s absolutely correct to do so. In which case the very obvious question is why are climate ‘scientists’ claiming they can predict what the global temperature is going to be in 10, 20 50 and 100 years?
The answer is very simple. They can’t. Yet, apparently, I’m the one talking bollocks.
Well, let’s see how Joe Public reacts when they discover the true consequences of the ridiculous law to reduce our carbon emissions. Houses will need completely new heating systems — not just a heat pump instead of a boiler but new everything — plus the temperatures used will be much lower than at present and the thermal delay in the control systems will be very long. Put simply if you feel cold, tough, it will be hours before your house warms up. By which time, of course, the weather’s likely to have changed.
Plus you’ll need to charge your electric car. Good luck with that. Ever seen a street lined with cars? It’s bad enough in Scunny but just visit a city to see the reality of this.
Of course the electric bills are going to be huge — it’s consumers who will have to cover the costs of the capital investment required to say nothing of their actual consumption. As usual this will affect the poor far more than anyone else.
Yet, apparently, I’m the one talking bollocks. It would be laughable except it just isn’t funny.
