Halfway to Hell: Global Temperatures Hit Critical Point, Warn Scientists (!)
Ya gotta laugh! A one degree temperature rise in 135 years! Panic! No-one even noticed it until the Greenies began to froth at the mouth about it. And even that one degree embodies a prediction. The reality is around two thirds of that.
They list what appear to be five interlocking temperature graphs. They are interlocking indeed. They all use the same basic terrestrial temperature readings. They are far from independent.
How strange that the authors have omitted the much more comprehensive satellite records! The fact that the satellite record shows NO warming might have something to do with that. The whole article below is essentially a fraud ginned up to influence the forthcoming Paris climate conference
And the wording is really slimy. The bit that amused me most was: "Rising temperatures and changing weather patterns already increase heat-related illnesses". That's true by definition. What about illness from all causes? It's actually COLD that increases illness from all causes!
And there's the old chestnut that "2014 was the hottest year since records began". Which records? Certainly not the satellite record. And even if we take the terrestrial records as honestly compiled, the 2014 temperature differed from the temperatures of the last 18 years only by hundredths of one degree. So "2014 was the hottest year since records began" gives a quite false impression that the temperature rise is ongoing. It is not.
And what about the "scientists" in the heading? WHICH scientists? Certainly not all scientists. An honest heading would be "Many Scientists" but honesty is not to be expected of Warmists, of course.
I could go on but the crooks below have pulled out every trick in the book to make their case -- which shows you how non-existent their case is. It's propaganda worthy of Dr. Goebbels
As 2015 shapes up to be the hottest year on record, scientists warn the world could be halfway towards surpassing countries’ self-set red line of 2C temperature rise.
New research commissioned by the New Scientist shows that four out of the five major surface temperature records are set to pass the 1C point this year, measured from the 1850-1899 average.
At 1C climate change is already affecting the world’s poorest and most vulnerable populations as warming brings escalating sea level rise and more intense and volatile weather extremes.
Rising temperatures and changing weather patterns already increase heat-related illnesses, enhance the spread of disease, reduce crop yields and threaten access to clean water and could result in forced migration, conflict and social disruption.
Bold climate action will save huge numbers of lives and produce significant cost savings in the health sector. Direct health impacts from climate change are expected to cost the world US$2-4 billion a year by 2030.
2014 was the hottest year since records began.
Now with an El Nino underway and predicted to intensify, it looks as if the global average surface temperature could jump by around 0.1C in just one year. And, 2015 is “shaping up to smash the old record.”
The latest research underscores the urgency for government’s to act and the solutions are ready and waiting.
In December governments will meet in Paris to agree a new global climate pact, aimed at moving the world closer to keeping warming below the 2C threshold, or even the 1.5C demanded by vulnerable countries.
With the renewable sector strengthening every day and fossil fuels facing a battle for survival, there is no excuse for inaction.
Governments must arrive in Paris ready to signal their collective vision for a complete phaseout of fossil fuels in favor of a 100 percent renewable future.
