United Nations Coral Expert Speaks Out

The UN Secretary General says global warming will wipe out the world’s coral reefs.

Corals appeared in the ocean 540 million years ago with CO2 levels fifteen times higher than now and temperatures 10C warmer.

    Sadly, the average mug-punter listens to scientifically-illiterate, lying, scare-mongering buffoons such as Guterres. The recent speech at the GWPF by Prof. Ian Plimer sets the matter of global warming straight. Well worth hearing at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tK4LNIvlcCY. Plimer is Emeritus Professor of Earth Sciences at Melbourne University; a brilliant man.

    1.2 of the alleged 1.5, or 2.0, has already happened.

    We’re going to have a 20C degree swing here today. There are going to be a lot of jackets
    left at school this afternoon. Yet a 0.3 rise in the next 75 years will destroy the planet? Who could you sell that story to?

    Anyway, a warmer earth is a better earth.

    Interesting how well coordinated this is as Joe Biden spew this very same 1.5 degree(the consent number that will save us all) BS in his recent ‘interview ‘session with Kumar.
    He also bitterly complained about Florida not allowing pedophiles to sexualize children and to mutilate children bodies.

  4. Bruce says:

    Next up…

    High CO2 levels will cause the coral population to explode and take over the earth!

    And so the lies just keep on coming, no matter what long accepted scientific research and actual observations show.

    All they’ve got are worthless models and lies. And most important, the political power to sustain the lies no matter what the actual science says.

      Ergo my cynicism.

    BTW Tony. I saved this one to my favorites. Gets the point across so even a 5th grader could understand it.

    Drat!!! Missed again!!! = Alarmists’ lament.

    Prior miss: Low-lying islands defied alarmists’ prediction of doom. 85+% of Pacific Islands grew WHILE surrounding sea level rose.

    Current miss: Great Barrier Reef, and other reefs, defy alarmists’ doomsaying. Reefs are thriving around the world, except those poisoned by municipal waste.

    Obviously, alarmists are wrong about cause & effect mechanisms. Also obvious: Alarmism is not physical science, but it might be applied psychology & political science.

    How did this lunatic get this job? Oh, that’s right, he was appointed by other lunatics.
    — Thinking is asking too much of him. Just wait till one day we get blasted by a Solar Coronal Mass Ejection and all our worries will be over.

    It seems like CO2, even with its recent growth, is near an all time low in geological terms. Does a person become an instant expert when the UN hires them? I guess a really good expert makes sure that he says things will happen because of things that are highly unlikely to happen, hence it is unlikely that he will ever be proven wrong. How did the fragile coral managed to survive all kinds of environmental threats for billions of years? In particular, one might ask, how did it manage to survive the asteroid collision that wiped out the dinosaurs, which caused, according to experts, atmospheric particulate pollution, ionization, poisonous gases, extremely high temperatures, etc.? Yet the coral is still here.

    • David G says:

      It seems that “bad “news gets into the heads of the populace and stays there longer than “good” news. In Australia the thriving reef has been in the news, but the average Joe still thinks it is being destroyed by CO2.

  10. Walter says:

    How lucky for us to live in the perfect temperature period where coral can exist. What were the odds??

  11. David More says:

    So who is going to tell António that we are at war with Coral and they’re winning.

    Today, at just over 400 ppm CO2 there are 850 billion tons of CO2 in the atmosphere. By comparison, when modern life-forms evolved over 500 million years ago there was nearly 15,000 billion tons of CO2 in the atmosphere, 17 times today’s level…. Fossil fuels, which were made from plants that pulled CO2 from the atmosphere account for 5,000 – 10,000 billion tons of carbon, 6 – 12 times as much carbon as is in the atmosphere.

    But the truly stunning number is the amount of carbon that has been sequestered from the atmosphere and turned into carbonaceous rocks. 100,000,000 billion tons, that’s one quadrillion tons of carbon, have been turned into stone by marine species that learned to make armour-plating for themselves by combining calcium and carbon into calcium carbonate.

    During the last glaciation, which peaked 18,000 years ago, CO2 bottomed out at 180 ppm, extremely likely the lowest level CO2 has been in the history of the Earth. This is only 30 ppm above the level that plants begin to die.
    With the onset of the warmer interglacial period CO2 rebounded to 280 ppm. But even today, with human emissions causing CO2 to reach 400 ppm plants are still restricted in their growth rate, which would be much higher if CO2 were at 1000-2000 ppm.

    Here is the shocking news. If humans had not begun to unlock some of the carbon stored as fossil fuels, all of which had been in the atmosphere as CO2 before sequestration by plants and animals, life on Earth would have soon been starved of this essential nutrient and would begin to die.
