Global Warming: Seriously Worse than Worse
An IPCC spokesman has now made it clear: Global warming is seriously worse than everything else anywhere and always that ever was bad. Worser than that.
Chris Field is the IPCC panel member. Reuters quotes Field as saying, "The consequence of that is we are basically looking now at a future climate that is beyond anything that we've considered seriously."
Seriously. Fields said, “the actual trajectory of climate change is more serious" than any of the climate predictions in the IPCC's fourth assessment report called "Climate Change 2007." Seriously … this time it is worse than serious.
At least this worse than serious time, the IPCC is not blaming it on my non-florescent light bulbs. Reuters states :
The climate is heating up far faster than scientists had predicted, spurred by sharp increases in greenhouse gas emissions from developing countries like China and India, a top climate scientist said on Saturday.
Well maybe. There is no doubt about which countries can’t keep their carbon emissions in their pockets. And it ain’t the West. So, sure, China and India are worse than serious polluters.
But Field couldn’t leave it at that. He just had to do it. He had to throw in the doomsday sound bite. Here it comes:
"There is a real risk that human-caused climate change will accelerate the release of carbon dioxide from forest and tundra ecosystems, which have been storing a lot of carbon for thousands of years," Field, of Stanford University and the Carnegie Institution for Science, said in a statement.
Field claims that global warming will cause huge wildfires in the tropical rain forests and will also melt the permafrost in the arctic. (That’s where all of that carbon dioxide is going to come from -- er … it comes after the carbon dioxide from China and India, I guess. So man made global warming is causing non-made made global warming. This is worse than worser than serious.)
Now a first year high school chemistry student can tell you that fire burns because of, say it together class, oxygen, not carbon dioxide. Most scientists know that what this planet does not need is more oxygen in the atmosphere. A 5% richer oxygen mix in the air -- and wild fires would burn and burn and never stop. But carbon dioxide causes fires? Not on this planet.
And the permafrost is going to melt? Not unless the planet gets much warmer than even the most dire IPCC predicti…. Sorry. I misspoke. This new predication is the direst IPCC prediction.
Are you starting to see the pattern? The less evidence that is found for man made global warming … the worse the predications about the outcome of global warming.
Remember the movie “Dumb and Dumber?” Al Gore and the global warming crowd need to produce a new movie: “Worse and Worser.” Seriously.
