We’re all gonna die

First from Australia.

@MRobertsQLD
Adam, Can you confirm the credentials of Professor Micky Mouse from the Micky Mouse Institute For The Blind that is included in your list of “scientists”? Unprecedented propaganda.

This is unprecedented. 11,000 scientists from around world unite to declare global climate emergency. Governments, including our own, have not got global warming under control. #Greens will press on with getting Aust Parl to declare a climate emergency. https://sbs.com.au/news/11-000-scientists-from-around-the-world-unite-to-declare-global-climate-emergency

And then from Canada.

    But the meme is out there, that was the aim. No amount of ridicule will pull it back.

    The alarmists have fallen head over heels about this non peer reviewed paper. WUWT has analysed the 11000 “scientist” signatories which include Mickey, Albus Dumbledore of Hogwarts, pensioners, PhD Candidates in Theology, Ethnomusical professors. Professors of music, associate Professors of Political Science, animal behaviorist, Maitre de Conferences, zoo keeper, MD, food studies, linguistics, social work and many more non climate related sciences.
    Have just read through the document myself and found that they have edited out Mickey and the other non de plumes

    Precisely. We are not playing the same game here. Like it or not, their rules are what is now governing who moves what gamepiece and where. They are not at all bothered by being the only player with a piece on the board. In fact, it suits them, because it allows them to say “Look, the other side is not even turning up. WE are the only ones with commitment here, therefore we have legitimacy, and the invisible ones don’t. Who are you going to believe – us, who are putting in the effort, or the invisible mumblers, who may or may not actually exist? Trust us, we are here for you.”

    Why wouldnt the gangrenes believe in mickey mouse ? They believe in wind power and solar replacing real power from coal,,thats indicative of their lack of commonsense .
    The Dr Fred Institute has polled 1,000,000,ooo climate scientists who say the climate is changing ,the world is getting colder because of lack of CO2 we need more to warm the planet before the New Ice Age ,get those coal fired power plants chugging before we freeze to death . Disprove that statement if you can .

  8. This actually sounds like something that 4CHAN would put out and the gullible Left believe each and every time. The memes will be very strong with this one.

    The Australian Science Media Center which promotes expertise in science reporting and provides comments from various experts owent totally overboard on this article. Mind you I have never seen one skeptical article on the site since it was created nearly a decade ago. The article was reproduced without question and here is what “the experts” said.
    Expert Reaction
    These comments have been collated by the Science Media Centre to provide a variety of expert perspectives on this issue. Feel free to use these quotes in your stories. Views expressed are the personal opinions of the experts named. They do not represent the views of the SMC or any other organisation unless specifically stated.

    “Bioscience has provided the opportunity for the climate crisis to be discussed once again, and the fact that over 11,000 scientists have been a signatory to this warning must surely be seen by all as an indication of the seriousness of this problem. This is not just some kind of anti-oil propaganda, or a message from greenie tree huggers – these are thousands of scientists from across the world from the whole range of disciplines relevant to this issue.

    The comprehensive analysis provided in this paper leaves no room for doubt, as the evidence is all there. In the face of this, what we need to ask ourselves is, what kind of future do we want?, and how do we get there? Does the human race really want to get into the state where we have fouled our own nest and can only survive if we flee to hostile and distant alternative planets? Would it not be better for our future to be one of prosperity and equity, so we can go forward into our galaxy as a strong and powerful species which is a force for good? If that is our choice, then surely we must take heed of this warning, to act on how we generate and use energy, how we feed ourselves, and how we manage our social and economic trajectory into the future.”
    Dr Linden Ashcroft is a Lecturer in climate science and science communication at The University of Melbourne
    “This article adds to the roar from all fields of science that climate action needs to be taken now.

    The succinct summary shows clearly how much has changed in our environment, population, and energy sectors in the last 40 years. While there are some good signs, the majority of the graphs in this article are going up, when they need to be going down.

    The impressive signatory list contains at least 350 Australian scientists, with more ecologists and medical researchers than climate researchers. This suggests to me these experts are reacting to the devastating impacts they see in their everyday work.

    Breaking down our choices into six areas will be confronting for some, but the reality is that we need to make big changes—and quickly—to avoid the worst impacts of climate change.

    Australia is not immune to this: in the last 40 years we have already seen an increase in heatwaves, a decrease in rainfall across parts of our south, and a lengthening of the bushfire season.”

    John Church is a Professor in the Climate Change Research Centre, University of New South Wales.
    “The data presented here is a cause for great alarm at the pace at which we are trashing our planet. But they also reveal signs of hope for the future. We know what to do, and we have demonstrated we have the tools. If we can only muster the will we can still prevent dangerous climate change.

    I might agree with you if I thought that CO2 was a major forcing in climate change …. in any event, there are many eminent and actual climate scientists who understand that climate systems are very complex and climate change cannot be attributed to a single component. Also, the seas don’t appear to be rising (islands may be sinking due to other phenomena eg. tectonics, and many eg. Tuvalu held up as examples of sinking appear to be growing!), we aren’t seeing more catastrophic cyclonic activity, and droughts aren’t caused by climate change. And warming has paused. Flooding is normal. Ice caps & glaciers remain (some retreating, some growing), with soot being claimed as a likely main cause for European glacial retreat in the last century.

    The idiot Greens might very well believe in Mickey Mouse science.

    In any event, we in Australia are unable to influence atmospheric CO2 to any meaningful extent. China, India and Europe need massive cuts to their emissions before there will be any reductions in global CO2 atmospheric concentrations. We’re just along for the ride …..

    Actually, there was no study, there was just a press release. And it wasn’t 11,000 scientists, it was 11,000 random people who put their names on a web page. But today’s reporters are so biased and so incompetent that when it comes to “climate change,”…

    — Powerline

  15. That “97% of scientists” claim was also bullshit, but it was declared far and wide and is still believed today.
    The alarmists have won the publicity. The science is IRRELEVANT.

    The scamsters knew they couldn’t win the science argument, so they went full bore on the publicity/politics, and they are winning mightily.

    The climate of politics allowed them to win the politics of climate. Now they’re after mining, agriculture, fishing and waterways.
    They will not stop until the UN gets the $100b per year they’ve been after for over 30 years.

  16. All that gumph in the news about “the guvmint doesn’t want you to know”, when the real problem is what the news wants you to believe.

  17. Squirrel

    When Minnie Bannister (notorious Goon Show vixen) warned “we’ll all be murdered in our beds” that was funny; this stuff is just sad – very, very sad.

    Even worse, though, is politicians who are shameless enough to claim that if their climate policies were adopted by Australia, our bushfires wouldn’t be nearly as bad.

    Our opponents are winning (we wouldn’t be talking about them otherwise).
    Yet we continue to bemoan HOW our opponents are winning, rather than doing anything about it. As though by highlighting our loss, they will somehow feel guilty about the method of achieving their win, and change the rules next time so the playing field is more even and fair.
    How’s that working for us?

    You won’t find those sort of riches down in Victoristan (except maybe in some union coffers).

    Even people who believe this emergency crap aren’t advocating that every flight be cancelled, every ICE vehicle be taken off the road, every coal or gas power station be closed.

    In other words, they don’t really believe it.

    They just want everything to keep going but be taxed more.

    “The statement is published in the journal BioScience on the 40th anniversary of the first world climate conference, which was held in Geneva in 1979.”

    https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/nov/05/climate-crisis-11000-scientists-warn-of-untold-suffering

    40 years of doomsday predictions and they can’t point to one that has come to pass?

    Worst apocalypse. Ever.

  23. Lutz

    And yet the preamble states that this ’emergency’ has been around for 40 years:
    “Exactly 40 years ago, scientists from 50 nations met at the First World Climate Conference (in Geneva 1979) and agreed that alarming trends for climate change made it urgently necessary to act.”

    Global Warming Is Cargo Cult Science

    “Science has shown such and such,”
    you might ask, “How does science show it?
    How did the scientists find out? How? What? Where?”

    It should not be “science has shown” but “this experiment, this effect, has shown.”

    And you have as much right as anyone else, upon hearing about the experiments to judge whether a sensible conclusion has been arrived at.

    “If it disagrees with experiment, it’s wrong. In that simple statement is the key to science.”
