97% … And Declining

Eight years ago, Barack Obama was absolutely certain he had saved the planet.

I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that … this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.

  • Barack Obama June 3, 2008

Today, he is less certain. I would consider his use of the world “potential” as being in the 5-20% confidence range.

Dr. James Hansen puts the certainty in the 0% confidence range.

James Hansen, father of climate change awareness, calls Paris talks ‘a fraud’ | Environment | The Guardian

All that the deal does is give China the formal go-ahead to continue increasing their CO2 emissions at a rate of about one new coal fired power plant every 10 days. Donald Trump was absolutely correct when he said global warming is a scam created for the Chinese.

    It’s plain as day a politically-driven fraud but before Trump made his claim I must admit I hadn’t heard that possibility being aired. Does he have any specific evidence to support it? Origins, reports, individuals promoting it etc?

    Maurice Strong lived in China for the latter part of his life and we all know his contribution to agw bullshit was significant. That would fit.

    There is evidence for a beginning of the scam with the eastern German communists claiming to be “green” after reunification. Knowing that the inefficient eastern factories would be closing, thus assuring a decrease in CO2, and real pollutants too, the Kyoto Protocol was designed to hobble modern economies, such as the USA.

    Regarding Trump’s statement, stick an “as if” in there and it works fine. I doubt he was or is aware of the actual beginnings. And it doesn’t matter.

    Regarding: “potential”
    I have the potential to be very rich, if a bought a Power Ball ticket, and if I won.

    Sad news is Obama claims after he is out of office he will be more vocal about issues. Bummer!

      John, the “scam” is a lot older than you (and the Donald) think. I don’t think Donald’s view of history differs from Henry Ford’s and he simply applied the principle of “qui bono” observing that China is coming out on top. However, ironically China was originally the TARGET of the Global Warming Narrative whose roots lay in “The Limits of Growth” from 1972.
      The prevailing fear then was Population Growth and Exhaustion of Resources (peak oil). The Global Warming Narrative emerged in the 80’s as the American and European elites sought to find a tool to suppress the economic growth of the 3rd world and conserve the diminishing resources.
      China and India were perfectly aware of the implications of the “sustainability” Agenda 21 and got their exemptions from the UNFCCC at Rio in 1992, reinforced at Kyoto 1997 and Copenhagen 2009, culminating in triumph Paris 2015. What went wrong? Probably fracking! Instead of being priced out of the market they industrialised on a flood of cheap energy, leaving the deluded Annexe 1 Nations hoist on their own petard of renewable energy. At last they a learning the Law of Holes – when in one – stop digging!

        The trouble that a lot of western countries are finding is that their hole has got very deep and there is seemingly no bottom to it.

        No matter how much they keep digging they just cannot get to the bottom of the hole.

      I dunno, but it may have been going on as long as humans have been here – superstitious…paranoid….and delusional…about us being able to control climate/weather…sacrificing to the various climate gods. I do know climate scares have been going on at the very least 120+ years. http://www.lowerwolfjaw.com/agw/quotes.htm

        You are correct priests have been following weather and astronomy for eons. Here is an example.

        NASA Finds Sun-Climate Connection in Old Nile Records – NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory

        …Alexander Ruzmaikin and Joan Feynman of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., together with Dr. Yuk Yung of the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, Calif., have analyzed Egyptian records of annual Nile water levels collected between 622 and 1470 A.D. at Rawdah Island in Cairo. These records were then compared to another well-documented human record from the same time period: observations of the number of auroras reported per decade in the Northern Hemisphere. Auroras are bright glows in the night sky that happen when mass is rapidly ejected from the sun’s corona, or following solar flares. They are an excellent means of tracking variations in the sun’s activity.

        Feynman said that while ancient Nile and auroral records are generally “spotty,” that was not the case for the particular 850-year period they studied.

        “Since the time of the pharaohs, the water levels of the Nile were accurately measured, since they were critically important for agriculture and the preservation of temples in Egypt,” she said. “These records are highly accurate and were obtained directly, making them a rare and unique resource for climatologists to peer back in time.”

        A similarly accurate record exists for auroral activity during the same time period in northern Europe and the Far East. People there routinely and carefully observed and recorded auroral activity, because auroras were believed to portend future disasters, such as droughts and the deaths of kings
