Global Warming's Gordian "Not"
by John Frost
This won't take long. It will all be over before you know it.
I came across this headline in my life-journey last night –
We only have a 5% chance of avoiding 'dangerous' global warming: study
A group of climate researchers published research suggesting the climate has been warming for longer than we thought due to human influences.
Allow me to allow you the opportunity to conserve a few minutes of your valuable time. Thank you. I have pulled the pertinent content from these links in that endeavor –
Christiana Figueres, the former head of the United Nations’ Framework Convention on Climate Change, recently joined with a group of climate scientists and policy wonks to state there are 3 years left to get emissions moving sharply downward. If, that is, we’re holding out hope of limiting the warming of the globe to below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial temperatures, often cited as the threshold where “dangerous” warming begins (although in truth, that’s a matter of interpretation).

First – let me say, it's nice to see these people finally address, at least, the concept of reality with that sentence fragment firmly affixed to reality with those parentheses. That being said, I believe we all know of the "97% of the World's scientists" figure floating about, disconnected from reality through the process of debunking, that is used to add a measure of certainty to catastrophic, Global Warming predictions.
Let's move on…
Second, from another article, also stumbled upon –
A leaked report to the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) seen by the Mail on Sunday, has led some scientists to claim that the world is heading for a period of cooling that will not end until the middle of this century.
The changing predictions have led to the UN's climate change's body holding a crisis meeting, it was reported, and the IPCC is due to report on the situation in October. A pre-summit meeting will be held later this month. Link here
Third and finally –
If 97% of the world's scientists are 95% certain they are utterly correct..Why the "crisis meeting"..????
