Climate Catastrophe: A Superstorm For Global Research

By Marco Evers, Olaf Stampf and Gerald Traufetter

Part 8: The Invention of the Two-Degree Target

“A group of German scientists, yielding to political pressure, invented an easily digestible message in the mid-1990s: the two-degree target.

But this is scientific nonsense.

“Two degrees is not a magical limit — it’s clearly a political goal,” says Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK).

“The world will not come to an end right away in the event of stronger warming, nor are we definitely saved if warming is not as significant.

The reality, of course, is much more complicated.”

Schellnhuber ought to know.

He is the father of the two-degree target.

“Yes, I plead guilty,” he says, smiling.

The idea didn’t hurt his career. In fact, it made him Germany’s most influential…

Celebrate! Global Warming Pause/Hiatus for 18 years! Good News!

October 1, 2014 is a day of celebration!

It is now undeniable that the planet is not racing to its destruction.

It is good news! (for some)

Here are some of the headlines from the mainstream media you might have missed:

Destruction Delayed!

Apocalypse Avoided

Catastrophe Curtailed

Delusion Detour

Nightmare! Not.

Armageddon Outta Here

Obama: I did it! Planet Healed! Sea levels Sweet!.

Either fish are stupid, or the ABC is.

August 13, 2010 –  climate change has fish moving south

It shows about 30 per cent of the fish that live in south-east Australia have moved to new habitats and started to breed.

PETER LAST: We think climate change has something to this with this. There’s been a warming of the waters around Tasmania during that period.

August 17, 2012 – warm seas will affect fish:

The CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation) says climate change is having a big impact on the country’s oceans, with tropical fish turning up as far south as Tasmania.

17 June, 2014 – cold seas kill fish:

Cold Antarctic water probable cause of dead fish washed up on Ninety Mile Beach, EPA says … [with] beachgoers identifying mainly the leather jacket species and also trevally. The fish prefer warmer waters.

Large numbers of dead fish have also washed up on Tasmania’s east coast.

July 8, 2014 – Warming oceans force fish south

New research shows the world’s warming oceans are forcing tropical fish to move south and putting other habitats at risk.
Dr Verges says it’s because of climate change.

Tropical species that perhaps were carried by this current, you know, they used to die once they hit certain cold temperatures but because the temperatures are now warmer overall, especially in the winter, species are starting to stay and form populations.

JAKE STURMER: Is there a fix? Is there any way to stop this?

ADRIANA VERGES: Well, we should definitely try and stop CO2 emissions. Any efforts to stop climate change are going to be key in at least slowing down this process.

UN-IPCC Climate Debt. Who really owes who?

Much of the current angst at the UN regarding climate has to do with the idea of “climate reparations”.

These are an imaginary debt supposedly owed(1) by the major CO2 emitting nations to the countries of the developing world.
Now, there are some interesting things about this map.
First, it appears to be pretty accurate.
For example, if you look at the lower right part of Australia, you can see the two big cities of Sydney and Melbourne as red dots in the sea of blue.
So … I figured I’d take the data and divide it up by country, to see how much CO2 each country either emits or absorbs.
The answers were pretty surprising … Figure 2 shows the top 20 biggest net emitters of CO2.
That’s where I started laughing … I can just see France demanding climate reparations from India, or the UK demanding reparations from the “Democratic” Republic of the Congo … It gets better.
Funnier and funnier … Sweden and Norway get to demand reparations from Russia,
Finland can send a bill to the USA, while Australia can dun China for eco-megabucks.

UN-IPCC- Deleted Data, ar5-spm errors

Doomsday Global Warming-
UN-IPCC Junk Climate Science update:

Nat Geo, JULY 3, 2014:
Data Deleted From UN Climate Report Highlight Controversies

When the United Nations’ last major climate change report was released in April, it omitted some country-specific emissions data for political reasons, a trio of new papers argue, sounding a warning bell about the global politicization of climate science.


November 12th 2013:
U.N. climate panel corrects carbon numbers in influential report

“Errors in the summary for policymakers were discovered by the authors of the report after its approval and acceptance by the IPCC,” it said in a statement.

It did not say how the errors had been made.

The panel had hoped to avoid more corrections after an embarrassing error about Himalayan ice-melt in its 2007 report.”


How much more snow if not for Global Warming?

Praise be to Gaia for Doomsday Global Warming.

How much more snow would we have got if not for carbon(sic) Doomsday Global Warming?

“Australian ski areas – which started their season badly on June 7th with almost no snow following a record warm May, are celebrating snowfalls of up to almost five feet (1.4m in fact) during the last four days.”

(Note the picture of Al Gore’s tour bus)


What the Doomsday BoM said, 28 May 2014:

“A warmer winter likely for Australia
The chances that the winter maximum temperature outlook will exceed the median maximum temperature is greater than 60% over Australia. Chances are greater than 80% over the western, southern and eastern coastal regions, and Tasmania.”


How sad for the BoM.
