50 Months To Green Armageddon
You can always tell when another doomed UN COP meeting is weeks away, the Climate of Fear returns, and this year Fear is making a comeback, big time, there are just 50 months left to save the world or we will all die, horribly in some environmentalist longed for global calamity.
Fear has always been central to the whole Anthropogenic Global Warming boondoggle, back in 2009, the Scottish incompetent Gordon Brown, who at the time was destroying Britain as Prime Minister, darkened our TV screens with his Gollum like presence to announce that there were just “50 days left to save the world“.
Then of course there is Rajendra Pachauri, head of the UN IPCC who has been predicting our imminent doom, albeit on an ever shifting end date for years now:
In November 2007 Pachauri said “If there’s no action before 2012, that’s too late. What we do in the next two to three years will determine our future.“
The list of warmist failed predictions is both endless and well known, but continuing on the theory that if you make enough predictions then it is statistically probable that one day, one of the predictions will actually happen, The Guardian is running its 100 Months To Save The World series again, apparently we are half way to hell as there are just 50 months left to Save The World.
There is a
unprecedented groundbreaking new study that has found, as all groundbreaking new studies in the Guardian always do, that Climate Change will cause fish to shrink by up to 25% unless we adopt Carbon Trading Schemes immediately, or something like that:
Global warming is likely to shrink the size of fish by as much as a quarter in coming decades, according to a groundbreaking new study of the world’s oceans.
The reduction in individual fish size will be matched by a dwindling of overall fish stocks, warned scientists, at a time when the world’s growing human population is putting ever greater pressure on fisheries.
“We were surprised as we did not think the effects would be so strong and so widespread,” said Prof William Cheung from the University of British Columbia in Canada, who led the research. His team examined the effect of rising ocean temperatures on the growth and distribution of more than 600 species of fish around the world and found that they are expected to shrink in size by 14-24% by 2050, with the biggest effects in tropical regions.
“It could be worse than that,” said Prof Callum Roberts, at the University of York, who described the research as the most comprehensive to date.
It could be worse than that, one day the people who fund my alarmist nonsense will get wise and cut my research grant funding.
For a time now the ever hungry Big Green Money Machine has been casting avaricious glances at the money held in pension funds, the same battered and damaged pension funds that Gordon Brown has already plundered:
Our pension funds can and should be powerful allies in the fight against climate change. Among other things they should demand a halt to corporate funding of lobbying against climate change regulation; allocate capital into low-carbon infrastructure around the world; urge companies in all sectors to invest in energy saving techniques and technologies; and as a matter of financial prudence take a close interest in companies’ preparation for the impacts of a changing climate.
Just what those that have saved for their retirement really want, their hard earned money invested in renewable energy which rolls over and dies as soon as subsidies are cut or removed, still it will save the world for future generations at the expense of those who have retired or will retire soon.
Next of course we need to abandon ownership and make Britain a caring sharing hippy commune or Gaia will get pissed off:
The number one source of inefficiency in social and environmental terms is individual ownership. This is something that we just take for granted and yet the waste is phenomenal – with households in the UK sitting on opportunities for consumption on stock (lawn mowers, washing machines, bread makers) that could keep villages the other side of the world powered for a year. The key to radically reduced consumption – whether to put less carbon in the atmosphere or to live with the results of what is already there – is sharing.
The world needs a global Tahrir Square, oh whoopee then the Climate Brotherhood can take over:
Perhaps this is a reaction born in part in America’s irresponsible inaction on climate change, but I have come to the view that what’s needed now is a massive, in-the-streets citizens protest – a global Tahrir Square. I fear that governments will procrastinate unless unprecedented numbers of people across the world continue to put it all on the line with non-violent demonstrations, marches, and protests and move with determination from protest to movement to power before it is too late
The can world can saved if we do away with small states and have a nice friendly one world Green UN dictatorship:
We need to discard the ideological trappings of an increasingly discredited neo-liberalism – such as the fetish of consumer choice, or the notion of the small state. The financial tsunami that has caused bankers to fear, depositors to panic, and governments to act reflect an economic system that plays with our future as if it were a number on a roulette wheel. An active eco-state will never be the whole answer to the epic challenge of climate change, but it surely forms a big part of it.
Finally we can save the world by working 21 hours every week and have lots of leisure time with no money to spend:
Adopt the 21 hour week that the New Economics Foundation proposes and the life of leisure that Keynes once imagined. With the time we save we could do whatever we enjoy. We could grow food using schemes like Landshare, set up gift circles and freeshops, participate in freecycling, learn small-scale skills, or cycle instead of drive. All of which would reduce our carbon emissions while increasing our happiness. Longer term, we need to question the fundamental cultural narratives of our age: unlimited growth, separation from nature, even monetary economics.
