Climate Change: Scientists Say "Last Chance"

I try to take a step back from it this these days, it's just too time consuming.
You seem to be a good lad, well intentioned. Just keep a beady eye on what has jumped on the AGW bandwagon. John McDonnell, Corbyn? Sod that. They see it as a backdoor to dismantling capitalism, nothing more.
There are two issues there that get conflated frequently:

Firstly is AGCC, which I would argue is beyond dispute in the same way that the earth is round and vaccines are safe and work - there are plenty of flat earthers and anti-vaxxers out there who decry the science.

The second are the watermelons (green on the outside but pinks on the inside) who have hijacked environmentalism for their political beliefs. They tend to be the scaremongers and are the modern day CND lot.

That they use AGCC for their political ends using hyperbole and scaremongering does not make AGCC any less real. The impact/effect however is and will be very different from what the doomsayers predict.

And cows. Cow farts add huge amounts to CO2 emissions. However I wholeheartedly agree, there's way too many humans on the planet. We're long overdue a big war or pandemic.
So now we need



SUPER AIDS!!

Quicker results than last time, say a week or two and no cure for about twenty years, should do the trick.
 
Bad day at the office: Climate change activists protest outside the wrong building Tuesday 30 July 2019 7:25 pm Sebastian McCarthy

Green protesters were left red-faced today after targeting the offices of a renewable energy company by mistake.

Several hundred climate demonstrators from a group called “Reclaim the Power” descended on the Square Mile to picket what they had thought was the headquarters of Drax, only to find out that the gas and energy group had moved offices more than a year ago.:roll:

The activists had instead chained themselves to a block in Moorgate that is now occupied by Europe’s leading renewables generator, Statkraft. :lol:

More than normal numbers of Cloggies popping their clogs.

'Almost 400 people more died in the Netherlands during Europe’s recent record-breaking heatwave than in a regular summer week, Dutch national statistics agency CBS said on Friday. In total, 2964 people died in the Netherlands during the week that started on July 22, the CBS said, which was around 15% more than during an average week in the summertime.

'Temperature records tumbled across Europe during late July’s heatwave, and for the first time since records began topped 40 degrees Celsius (104 Fahrenheit) in the Netherlands on July 25. The death toll in the Netherlands during that week was comparable to the rate during two heatwaves in 2006, which were among the longest ever in the country, the researchers said. About 300 of the additional fatalities were among people aged 80 years and older.

'Most of the deaths occurred in the east of the Netherlands, where temperatures were higher and the heatwave lasted longer than in other parts of the country.'

Hot weather always causes more deaths amongst old people. Scientific article here but my interpretation in a nutshell is that they basically don't drink enough or get given enough water to drink which leads to renal problems. Youngsters tolerate lack of water better.

At the big meeting of the climate youth movement in Lausanne trouble is brewing. That seems to have left its mark on leader Greta Thunberg. Today the 16-year-old had reporting journalists thrown out of the conference hall.

The journalists were allowed back in after some "privacy" time. The emotional bickering by the teenage assembly is a bad look that the defacto leader does not want to be reported on again.

All the hallmarks of a proper EU political creature
 
Sink or swim here guys and girls lol.

Greta is going on a maiden voyage across the pond in a ummm clean sailing yacht, where the bog is a single blue bucket for crap. Her point is her point...so fair winds and Bon voyage.

Laughingly the Fail has printed same story albeit with “We are not accepting comments on this article” which is what one would see on a serious crime bit of news.


Cheers

Should the sh1t hit the fan (powered by renewables obvs), she can hopefully depend on the electrically powered helicopters, surveillance aircraft & ships that will be deployed to save this new messiah.
Or if they're not, will she decline being rescued & do us all a favour?

Looks like the only thing she could throw is her teddy in the corner when others disagree with her.

I see that the lovely Greta is setting sail in a clean green sailing machine.

What a crock of shit. How can that thing be green? It is probably made of grp or carbon fibre, the mast and spinnaker poles will definitely be carbon, ropes and sheets will be man made, the sails might well be Kevlar. The V.O.Cs from that lot will have made a hole in the atmosphere the size of a big thing. With any luck at all the bloody thing will sink taking our lovely Greta with it.

True believers, which includes people relying on research grants, assume that man is the only source of CC, not the sun or volcanoes or forest fires or anything else, and that unilateral hysterical measures in UK will truly compensate for the massive pollution caused by Chinese coal fired power stations, a billion Indians cooking over wood fires leaving a clag of brown smoke visible from space, Russian heavy industry, etc, etc.

It reportedly cost more than £4m to build and has solar panels and underwater turbines to generate the electricity needed to power the instruments on board.

A tidy carbon foot print there and next to FA can be recycled, then there's "lets have a climate conference in some exotic place" then find out there's not enough room for all their private jets to fly in

If she was that concerned about a carbon footprint, why is she not joining in/preaching by video conference?
