The Royal Society has made a submission to the MfE on Setting New Zealand’s post-2020 climate change target (pdf, 217 kB).
Nine pages of high-powered propaganda, impressive, sciencey-sounding scary stuff from real professors. Let me know what you think of it.
The alarmists are REALLY ramping up the scare tactics Have a peek at this, from Professor William Nordhaus, who apparently “put it succinctly”:
‘They emphasize that, for climate change, dealing with possible tail events is the central task of policy. They argue that current policies are leading to a substantial chance (perhaps one in ten) that global temperatures will eventually rise by at least six degrees centigrade. This will, in their words, be “the end of the human adventure on this planet as we now know it.” Policies should above all aim to cut off the possibility, the tail, of catastrophic temperature increases.’
Six degrees??!! The end of the human “adventure”??!! That is insane.
Yet we say the world is not ending and they tell us we’re the lunatics.
