The AGW cult has been making outrageously bad predictions of doom for a long, long time.
Nearly 40 years ago, a landmark paper was published in the prestigious scientific journal Nature providing a dapper rubric for the modern human-caused climate disaster papers to follow.
The Mercer paper also states that the expected temperature increase due to the doubling of CO2 concentrations would, according to climate models, yield a temperature change of +10°C for the region. This sweltering warmth could, according to advocates of human-caused climate alarm, cause a “rapid deglaciation” of the West Antarctica ice sheet that would, in turn, lead to sea level rise by about 5 meters within 50 years (2028).
As will be illustrated below, the temperatures for Antarctica as a whole have not risen since 1979.

Lets say its May 5th 2017 11am in Germany and there is about 59GW of demand to keep the country functioning and you are a greenie looking forward to a day when there is no more nuclear or CO2 producing power plants..
Ooops. 0.17GW from solar. 3.37GW from wind.
7.7GW from nuclear.
42GW from CO2 producing power plants (gas, coal, biomass, oil)
They are turning trees into charcoal in Africa. If they were smart they could get a grant from Greenpeace and call it BioCharcoal.
Most of the trees have been cut down,” he said recently, hours after securing only 60 bags of charcoal, below his daily average of 80. “Within five years, all the trees will be gone.”
Trees have been disappearing in a widening arc from Toliara in the past decade. As charcoal producers first culled trees in forests closest to Toliara, leaving villages surrounded only by thickets, the business has shifted to remote areas about 100 miles away, accessible by dirt roads and sometimes waterways.
Stupid and dirty biomass. Produces more CO2 than coal. Lots of particulate matter. Cuts down forests.
“What’s actually happening is we are basically cutting down perfectly healthy, productive trees,” says Tim Searchinger, a research scholar at Princeton University.
In 2015, biomass — which refers to trees or other organic matter burned for fuel — produced more electrical energy in the U.S. than solar panels.
Many years ago Europe decided to fight “Global Warming” by encouraging the use of diesel cars because diesel produces a little less CO2 per mile than gasoline engines.
But they are paying a massive price in terms of air pollution.
Diesel car owners could face tax rises to tackle deadly air pollution, a Cabinet minister indicated today.
In an interview with the Evening Standard, Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin said it had been a “mistake” for former Labour chancellor Gordon Brown to slash taxes on diesel.
The decision had caused a “dramatic rise” in the number of diesel cars spewing toxic nitrogen oxide (NOx) in London and other cities.
“We have got to look at that,” said the minister. “It is something the Chancellor will need to look at in due course.”
Mr Brown cut the duty on low sulphur diesel by 3p in his 2001 Budget — a move unveiled shortly before the general election — and also reduced company car taxes on diesels, billed as a bid to help meet climate change targets.
However, although diesel engines produce less carbon, which is blamed for global warming, they emit up to four times as much NOx and 20 times as many particulates — minute particles that penetrate and damage the lungs, heart and brain. About 9,400 Londoners die prematurely every year from breathing the city’s polluted air.
Lets say its June 13th 2016 10am or so in Ontario and there is about 16GW of demand.
Nuclear+Hydro+Gas keeps the lights and heat on.
Biofuel+Wind+Solar are just posturing. And they cost a fortune.
Remember the big noise a few weeks back about Germany being essentially powered by wind turbines.
Not so much noise now that wind is 5GW or less for about 6 days in a row.
