The Real Global Warming Disaster: Is the Obsession with "Climate Change" Turning Out to Be the Most Costly Scientific Blunder in History?


Author Christropher Booker

This original book considers one of the most extraordinary scientific and political stories of our time: how in the 1980s a handful of scientists came to believe that mankind faced catastrophe from runaway global warming, and how today this has persuaded politicians to land us with what promises to be the biggest bill in history.

Christopher Booker interweaves the science of global warming with that of its growing political consequences, showing how just when the politicians are threatening to change our Western way of life beyond recognition, the scientific evidence behind the global warming theory is being challenged like never before.



The Real Global Warming Disaster: Is the Obsession with "Climate Change" Turning Out to Be the Most Costly Scientific Blunder in History? The book exposes the myth that the global warming theory is supported by a 'consensus of the world's top climate scientists'. It shows how the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is run by a small group of 'global warming' zealots, who have repeatedly rigged evidence to support their theory. But the politicians, pushed by the media, have so fallen for its propaganda that, short of dramatic change, our Western world now faces an unprecedented disaster.

Poor Greta. She lost her childhood because of her obsession about climate change. I do feel sorry for her.

She needs help with that obsession.

Yeppers! 

 

Adults ganging up on a 16-year-old with asperger's syndrome, a health condition that the girl as been very open about. IMO, that's lower than a snake's belly, as they say in these parts.

Well that's clearly evident as your posts are intelligent, thoughful and based on truth and facts.

 

But give yourself a treat sometimes.....catch an hour or so of Fox and Friends and/or Hannity each week....you'll get a real laugh or two and see where the garbage some posts come from.  Keep in mind:

 

Fox Advertiser Admits Fox Viewers Are "F-ing Idiots"

 

The Making of the Fox News White House

 

And this link/study just makes me laugh when one poster claimed, as she chastised others for not watching the news and being informed, that she only watches Fox News and Youtube for her news.....

 

STUDY: Watching Only Fox News Makes You Less Informed Than Watching No News At All

Fox News apologises to Greta Thunberg for pundit's 'disgraceful' remark

 

Appearing on Fox News on Monday, the rightwing commentator Michael Knowles launched an extraordinary attack on Thunberg, 16, who is campaigning in the US to urge action on the climate crisis.

 

Knowles, a guest on Fox News’s The Story, was invited to discuss Thunberg’s speech and the climate crisis. He was dismissive of both.“If it were about science it would be led by scientists rather than by politicians and a mentally ill Swedish child who is being exploited by her parents and by the international left,” Knowles said.

 

A Fox News spokesperson subsequently told the Daily Beast: “The comment made by Michael Knowles who was a guest on The Story tonight was disgraceful. We apologize to Greta Thunberg and to our viewers.”

NEW YORK – A boisterous crowd of at least 200,000 people turned out to chant and march in Manhattan on Friday, joining hundreds of thousands - possibly millions - of protesters from Australia to Thailand to London in Global Climate Strike rallies.

While supporters of all ages turned out, the day was billed as a walkout by high school students to call on world leaders to step up their efforts against climate change, carbon emissions and other environmental issues.

Greta Thunberg, the noted 16-year-old Swedish environmental activist whose efforts have been raising environmental consciousness around the globe, spoke to a crowd of  tens of thousands in New York City's Battery Park.

"Around the world today about 4 million people have been striking," Thunberg said. "This is the biggest climate strike ever in history and we all should be so proud of ourselves because we have done this together."

New York City schools excused the city's 1.1 million students from class to participate.

 

=======================================================

 

Schools excusing student so they can protest....like they could not have waited to Saturday! 

 

Whats next?

 

It says a lot about our schools....not good. 


So is it now vogue to denigrate America's children because they believe science and care about our environment. So trumpesque !!!!!

When did our generation stop caring? We used to care about the earth and the environment. Did we stop giving a crap when it became apparent that we dodged the bullet and most of us probably won't suffer the extreme dire consequences? Many of us still DO care, but alas, we will be known as the generation who dropped the ball.

Statements like berating schools for teaching and encouraging students to think about their future and allowing them to take an active part and speak their opinion are just plain ignorant and do nothing to help dispel that unfortunate legacy of the babyboomers. How dare the schools be so irresponsible not to teach students they're allowed to think about their future, but not on a school day; only on the weekend and their own time! Au contraire, I'd say they were doing their job, preparing the young people for the future and urging them to take an active role and participate in something they truly believe in and that is a GOOD thing. The climate strike was a valuable learning lesson, not just for the students, but for the REST of the world.

====================================================

That does not make sense.

Stop and smell the roses...took what we have done and are doing to reduce our use on fossil fuels. Things are changing but they will not change as fast as the Green New Deal want.

Schools, as far as I know are teaching about climate change. They use fear and scare...which I see and hear from the media. They are not being realistic...are you? From what I read on this board most posters are not being realistic.

"If wishes were horses, beggars would ride" is a proverb and nursery rhyme, first recorded about 1628 in a collection of Scottish proverbs., which suggests if wishing could make things happen, then even the most destitute people would have everything they wanted.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Releases Green New Deal Outline

What are the specifics of that framework?

The bill calls for a "10-year national mobilizations" toward accomplishing a series of goals that the resolution lays out.

(Note: Ocasio-Cortez's office released an updated version of the bill on Thursday. The earlier version, which we had included in a prior version of this story, is still available here.)

Among the most prominent, the deal calls for "meeting 100 percent of the power demand in the United States through clean, renewable, and zero-emission energy sources." The ultimate goal is to stop using fossil fuels entirely, Ocasio-Cortez's office told NPR, as well as to transition away from nuclear energy.

In addition, the framework, as described in the legislation as well as a blog post — containing an updated version of "FAQs" provided to NPR by Ocasio-Cortez's office — calls for a variety of other lofty goals:

"upgrading all existing buildings" in the country for energy efficiency;
working with farmers "to eliminate pollution and greenhouse gas emissions ... as much as is technologically feasible" (while supporting family farms and promoting "universal access to healthy food");
"Overhauling transportation systems" to reduce emissions — including expanding electric car manufacturing, building "charging stations everywhere," and expanding high-speed rail to "a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary";
A guaranteed job "with a family-sustaining wage, adequate family and medical leave, paid vacations and retirement security" for every American;
"High-quality health care" for all Americans.



It's obvious that many old trump supporters are simply afraid of change, the only constant in life.


Too bad they don't fear climate "change", a continous event increasing in severity that will destroy "all life"!

DUMP TRUMP AND DITCH MITCH TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!

Are you suggesting that if I do some research to prove your point, I will then accept your point? Does that seem like a lazy debate tactic to anyone else?

=================================================================

No, I did some research...its a good thing ...try it!

Hahahahaha.  Really?  You cited the section headed Criticism and response | Criticism of Thunberg and her campaign

 

Oh yeah, great research.  Hahahahaha

 

Whatever floats your Trumpian bubble.  If it's criticizing children, so be it.
