UN’s dire warning: Terrifying climate change data means we’re doomed in 12 years!

The UN isn’t going to let Al Gore have the last word.

From NY Post: Earth is on track to face devastating consequences of climate change — extreme drought, food shortages and deadly flooding — unless there’s an “unprecedented” effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, a new United Nations report warns.

The planet’s surface has already warmed by 1 degree Celsius (1.8 degrees Fahrenheit) and could see a catastrophic 1.5 C (2.7 F) increase between 2030 and 2052, scientists say.

“This is concerning because we know there are so many more problems if we exceed 1.5 degrees C global warming, including more heat waves and hot summers, greater sea level rise, and, for many parts of the world, worse droughts and rainfall extremes,” Andrew King, a climate science academic at the University of Melbourne, said in a statement to CNN.

The stunning statistics were released Monday in a report by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which warned that we must make “rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society” in order to save our planet.

Scientists with the Nobel Prize-winning IPCC said that in order to have even a 50-50 chance of staying under the 1.5-degree cap, the world must become “carbon neutral” by 2050. Any additional carbon dioxide emissions would require removing the harmful gas from the air.

If nothing is done, Earth can expect temperatures to rise by 3 degrees Celsius, more frequent or extreme droughts, an increase in deadly hurricanes and as much as 90 percent of coral reefs dying off — including the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, according to the report.

Countries in the Southern Hemisphere would see the most drastic effects.

“The next few years are probably the most important in human history,” IPCC co-chair Debra Roberts, head of the Environmental Planning and Climate Protection Department in South Africa, told Agence France-Presse.

Efforts to curb climate change must also extend beyond the 2015 Paris Agreement reached among 197 countries — which President Trump withdrew the US from in June 2017.

“The window on keeping global warming below 1.5 degrees C is closing rapidly and the current emissions pledges made by signatories to the Paris Agreement do not add up to us achieving that goal,” said King.

Staying within the 1.5 degrees C target, instead of 2 degrees C, would result in the global sea level rising 3.9 inches less by 2100, reducing flooding. It would also cut down on species loss and extinction and reduce the impact on various ecosystems.

“There were doubts if we would be able to differentiate impacts set at 1.5 C and that came so clearly. Even the scientists were surprised to see how much science was already there and how much they could really differentiate and how great are the benefits of limiting global warming at 1.5 compared to 2,” Thelma Krug, vice chair of the IPCC, told Reuters. “And now more than ever we know that every bit of warming matters.”

Hypocrites: Hollyweird libtards lecture us about climate change at telethon


ManBearPig approved.
From Daily Mail: The A-list celebrities who starred in the telethon for those affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have clocked up hundreds of thousands of air miles which have fuelled rising temperatures and helped create devastating storms (the Daily Mail article will continue with this global warming theme; ignore they hypberbole).
Tuesday night’s Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Harvey Relief included performances and messages from Beyoncé, Justin Bieber, George Clooney, Cher and Leonardo DiCaprio. They appealed to viewers to donate to help fund relief efforts after the disastrous storms hit the southern US.
But a MailOnline investigation has revealed the extent to which stars have contributed to the catastrophic weather phenomenons with their jet-setting lifestyles.
Justin Bieber is calculated to have travelled at least 136,000 miles in a plane over the last year, environmentalist DiCaprio is believed to have done more than 87,000 miles while fellow actor Clooney did 61,000 miles.
Carbon emissions from plane journeys such as the celebrities’ cause the earth’s temperature to heat and the resulting higher ocean temperatures lead to more powerful hurricanes. The higher temperatures over land and sea mean the storms generate more energy.
Bieber was the biggest culprit, having flown on approximately 45 flights in the past 52 weeks. His longest flight was from Australia to the UK at the beginning of July having been down under on his Purpose World Tour. The 10,638-mile flight burned through a massive 1.8 tonnes of carbon dioxide alone in a year that stacked up against him in terms of his carbon footprint.
Trips to Germany, Dublin, Paris, Cape Town, Mumbai, Rio de Janeiro and to his homeland Canada meant he clocked up a staggering 136,947 air miles burning through 22.45 tonnes of CO2 since September 2016.
The average annual carbon dioxide emissions per person in America is 20 metric tons, compared to a world average of four tons.  This means without even considering the miles he chugs in his cars or the emissions caused by heating and cooling his many homes, Bieber is above the average consumption.
Staunch environmentalist hypocrite Leonardo DiCaprio has been jetting across the globe around twice a month in the past year. The actor flew around 87,609 miles on various business trips and jaunts around the world which burned up 14.8 tons of carbon dioxide. His longest trip was his return journey from California to the south of France where he enjoyed the iconic Cannes film festival.
In April, DiCaprio joined thousands of climate change protesters in Washington DC to mark President Donald Trump’s 100th day in office. Large crowds gathered on Pennsylvania Avenue for the People’s Climate March, an event that saw about 300 coinciding protests around the country, according to organizers.
The mercury rose to around 90F in DC, and protesters brought their own water bottles and sunscreen as they warned about the dangers of global warming.
Holding signs that read ‘There is no planet B’, and ‘Make Earth Great Again’, the protesters say they’re objecting to the president’s rollback of restrictions on mining, oil drilling and greenhouse gas emissions at coal-fired power plants, among other things.
George Clooney spent around 61,448 in the air since September last year which included a long trip to Italy this summer. He is thought to have flown 4,265 miles from Toronto to Los Angeles to attend Tuesday night’s Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Harvey Relief telethon at a cost of 720kg of CO2. His total air time meant his carbon emissions from flying alone was 10.31 tonnes of CO2.
Meanwhile, despite being pregnant with twins, Beyonce still managed to clock up 28,040 miles in 12 months burning through 4.55 tons of CO2. 
And at 71, Cher has been a relative homebird compared to the rest of her celebrity compatriots, only appearing to fly within the US in a total of 6,546.
The total emissions only takes into account the flights the celebrities have taken and is likely to be astronomic when driving, pollution from their concerts or films and the electric in their homes are considered.

Even a cat knows Al Gore is full of it: CO2 is good for Earth

In 2006 when the alleged assault took place, Al Gore was fat.

A recent Bloomberg analysis reveals that Al Gore has become a really fat cat. From virtually nothing ($1.7 million) in 1999, Gore’s personal wealth  has soared to a staggering $200 million — close to the $250 million net worth of 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, whom the POS and the Demonrats targeted in ads and speeches as being out of touch with most Americans.
But Phoenix the cat knows better!

Contrary to the swill peddled by Al Gore, scientists know carbon dioxide or CO2 actually is good for our planet:

Fact No. 1:

The simple truth is Earth’s plants, vegetation and forests need carbon dioxide. Any one with an elementary grade school education knows that plants take in CO2, which they convert into oxygen. Higher CO2 levels in the atmosphere, therefore, support faster plant growth and the re-greening of our planet. Plants Need CO2 lists the following 10 benefits of CO2:

  1. Additional CO2 causes an astonishing plant growth.
  2. More CO2 causes plants to need less water to produce the same amount of growth.
  3. Certain health-promoting substances such as vitamin C and antioxidants, are increased with additional airborne CO2.
  4. With much more food production per acre, Earth should be able to feed an expanding population and save habitats and ecosystems.
  5. Existing habitats and ecosystems will have higher plant and wildlife capacity.
  6. The greening of Earth will continue and extend into the deserts as plants become drought tolerant.
  7. Plants can better resist various stresses when grown in a CO2 enriched atmosphere.
  8. Dramatic increases in the growth of Earth’s forests will help them recover from recurring natural disasters and aid a renewable resource industry.
  9. CO2 is Earth’s greatest airborne fertilizer.
  10. CO2 is the staff of life for Earth’s plant kingdom which is the beginning of the food chain; without it there would be no life on Earth.

Fact No. 2:

Instead of warming Earth’s temperature, carbon dioxide actually cools it down.
An article by Dr. Tony Phillips on NASA’s website, on the recent flurry of massive eruptions on the Sun (solar flares) dumping gigawatts of energy into Earth’s upper atmosphere, quotes atmospheric scientist Dr. James Russell II:

“Carbon dioxide and nitric oxide are natural thermostats. When the upper atmosphere … heats up, these molecules … shed that heat back into space.”
Dr. Russell is professor of Planetary and Atmospheric Sciences and co-director of the Center for Atmospheric research at Hampton University, and principal investigator of SABER — an instrument on board NASA’s TIMED satellite which monitors infrared emissions from Earth’s upper atmosphere, especially the levels of carbon dioxide and nitric oxide.
And now, by popular demand, here’s Al Gore, the ManBearPig!

Obama Wants to Tax the Number of Miles You Drive

UPDATE (5.17.11): The White House is backing away from its trial balloon and is disowning its own proposal to tax Americans by the miles we drive. See: https://news.yahoo.com/s/theweek/20110506/cm_theweek/215015_20110506105300

Green guru Al Gore owns 5 big mansions, flies in private jet planes, and has made millions off the climate change scam.


While we were distracted with the killing of Osama bin Laden and the release of Obama’s phony birth certificate, the Obama administration also released something else — a trial balloon of a very bad idea.

A draft bill was circulated within the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) and the Office of Management and Budget to tax Americans for the number of miles that we drive — so as to reduce our carbon dioxide emissions.

You can view a copy of this draft USDOT bill, with the Orwellian name “Transportation Opportunities Act,” here.

According to The Hill, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) “suggested that a vehicle miles traveled (VMT) tax could be tracked by installing electronic equipment on each car to determine how many miles were driven; payment could take place electronically at filling stations.”

The End of the American Dream blog warns us that “if this ever does become law, the tracking equipment will probably be installed on all new vehicles.” No amount of common sense will stop the global warming/climate change Greens from pressing forward with their militant crusade despite these inconvenient truths:

  • Carbon dioxide has nothing to do with global warming.
  • Carbon dioxide is one of the basic building blocks of life on planet earth, and our atmosphere is already starved of carbon dioxide.
  • Reducing levels of carbon dioxide will make it harder for crops to grow and could set off a global famine.
  • Over 95% of all carbon dioxide emissions would still occur even if humans were not present on Earth.

In Europe, the mantra that “carbon dioxide = evil” has become gospel. The European Commission has unveiled a plan to ban all cars from major European cities by the year 2050, part of a draconian master plan to reduce carbon dioxide emissions in Europe by 60% over the next 40 years.

Global Warmists have other brilliant ideas, including these top 12 stupidest ideas. One idea is to feed massive amounts of garlic to our cows to keep them from farting so much.

The radical green agenda is at the very heart of the New World Order system. Just watch this video of the kind of future “Planned-opolis” the Greens want for our future.

The video was produced by the Forum for the Future, an NGO funded by big corporations such as Time Warner and Royal Dutch Shell.

The radical green agenda is already being implemented in the United States:

  • The federal government wants to dictate to us what kinds of light bulbs we are allowed to buy.
  • In some areas of the United States, government snoopers actually sort through the trash of residents to ensure that environmental rules are being followed. For example, in the city of Cleveland, Ohio authorities have announced plans to have “trash supervisors” snoop through trash cans to ensure that people are actually recycling according to city guidelines.

The fact that there is even draft legislation taxing Americans based on the number of miles that we drive should alarm all of us. If the Greens have their way, there are going to be lots of these kinds of taxes in our future.

Are you gonna just sit there, or will you tell Congress “I’ve had enough and I’m not gonna take this anymore”?
