I regularly communicate with friend Allan, a prognosticator who uses his broad scientific knowledge to predict the future. And he does so remarkably with with much higher success than the IPCC regulars with their supercomputers, stupendously large budgets and probable crystal balls. One not so recent example was Allan’s 2012 paper that predicted that the weather would begin to cool in 2020. That prediction made with an understanding of solar cycles and dismissed man-made greenhouse gases as irrelevant. Perhaps that prediction is too early to call but it is a cold and miserable Spring out there.
CLIMATE CRISIS CANCELLED!
My friends at NetZeroWatch in London are sending us this cheerful message: The phony “Carbon” Climate Crisis that vilifies fossil fuels is cancelled! It was always a false crisis!
This excellent organization was founded as The Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF) by Lord Nigel Lawson, former Financial Secretary to the Treasury, Secretary of State for Energy and Chancellor of the Exchequer in the British government.
I had the pleasure of a recent meeting in Calgary with GWPF Director Dr Benny Peiser, subsequent to our several meetings in past years in Calgary and London.
The clear message from NetZeroWatch is:
“Earth Day At 52: None of the eco-doomsday predictions have come true.”
Net Zero Watch, 22 April 2022
“From predicting ecological collapse and the end of civilization to warnings that the world is running out of oil, all environmental doomsday predictions of the first Earth Day in 1970 have turned out to be flat out wrong.”
As I published in a recent paper:
“VIRTUALLY EVERY SCARY PREDICTION BY GLOBAL WARMING ALARMISTS IS FALSE.”
“Rode and Fischbeck, professor of Social & Decision Sciences and Engineering & Public Policy, collected 79 predictions of climate-caused apocalypse going back to the first Earth Day in 1970. With the passage of time, many of these forecasts have since expired; the dates have come and gone uneventfully. In fact, 48 (61%) of the predictions have already expired as of the end of 2020.”
“By the end of 2020, the climate doomsters (aka the IPCC and the radical greens) were proved wrong in their scary climate predictions 48 times. At 50:50 odds for each prediction, that is like flipping a coin 48 times and losing every time! The probability of that being mere random ignorance is 1 in 281 trillion! But no sensible person makes a 50:50 prediction – at 60:40 the odds against being this wrong are 1 in 13 quintillion; at 70:30 the odds against being this wrong are 1 in 13 septillion.”
With their blatant falsehoods, the climate doomsters have wasted trillions of dollars and millions of lives, mostly in the developing world.
There is no real fossil-fuel-caused Global Warming (aka “Climate Change”) crisis – it was always a false narrative, concocted by wolves to stampede the sheep, for financial and political gain.
There are two groups who repeat these climate falsehoods – the scoundrels who know they are lies, and the imbeciles who believe them.
