Burning earth

U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said the impacts of climate change are “heading into uncharted territories of destruction” after a multi-agency scientific report reviewing the latest climate change research.

The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) “United in Science” report on climate change warns that the planet is “going in the wrong direction.”

This is clear PROPAGANDA! What we used to think only happened in Third World Countries is continually happening here! The United Nations is another organization that is right up there with the World Economic Forum on the Blacklist of Criminal Organizations.

Spot on!!!!

Chicken Little- the sky is falling.

over 1200 climatologists signed onto a study paper of science found facts that there is NO EMERGENCY on climate change. The earth does this. Its normal changes. They studied every model that they used to predict the Climates change and every one for the past many years (20?) have been wrong. The climate increase have been the same as have happened before. The storms are no worse the floods not greater etc. Just more MSM and environmental people who are NOT climatologists spewing their Political narratives. Covid any one? Same thing control for something that's not a problem. Politicians after power and taxes that are not helping anything but breaking people's ability to survive and live. All for power.

You are absolutely 100% correct!

Forgettable

You know that if the organization has the word "World" in the title, they are criminals, and they are liars, and they should be treated as such.

We are in an Ice Age and overdue for another Glaciation. Some fear that we have already entered into the beginning of the next one or at least a little ice age. While many worry about the climate warming a couple of degrees, for about 75% of the last 600 million years the planet was at least 6 degrees centigrade (10.8 f) warmer than it is today and for about 90% of that time it was actually about 8 degrees centigrade (14.4 f) warmer than it is today. The dinosaurs must have been burning in .... Personally I am more worried about the planet cooling a couple of degrees or so.

You are correct, we are heading into a "mini ice age." Notice how the narrative has changed from "Global Warming" to "Climate Change" (which are not the same thing)? Problem that the Elites had was that reality did not fit their narrative anymore. Want to find out what's causing widespread, global climate change? Look no further than that bright thing in the sky called the sun. You won't find any talk about that.

The Klimate Lies and then there's REAL Science . . .

Russell Johns, the George E. Trimble Chair in Energy and Mineral Sciences at the John and Willie Leone Family Department of Energy and Mineral Engineering at Penn State University.

In a letter to the editor published in the student-run Penn State Daily Collegian, Johns points out that when considering the intense mining operations needed to harvest materials used in solar and wind technology, and the shipping associated with those materials, etc., solar and wind actually have a bigger ‘carbon dioxide footprint’ than does using natural gas.

In other words, natural gas is greener than wind and solar!

Hydrogen also creates more smog than natural gas owing to its high combustion temperature. Natural gas, on the other hand, is naturally occurring — especially in Pennsylvania, which is home to two of the world’s largest gas fields.

So-called “renewable” and “green” energies produce substantial carbon footprints, which are typically excluded from emission calculations. Solar, for example, requires an unprecedented increase in global mining to acquire rare earth and other materials for solar panels and batteries.

Disposal and recycling of these toxic materials is a major environmental problem and has largely gone unaddressed.

Has anyone every seen a proper scientific debate on global warming or climate change related to man's activities? Problem is, you will never see this!

"What historians will definitely wonder about future centuries is how deeply flawed logic, obscured by shrewd and unrelenting propaganda, actually enabled a coalition of powerful special interests to convince nearly everyone in the world that CO2 from human industry was a dangerous, planet-destroying toxin. It will be remembered as the greatest mass delusion in the history of the world – that CO2, the life of plants, was considered for a time to be a deadly poison."

Guterres is a fraud & a liar . . . the Globe is COOLING . . .

NASA Satelite data shows NO Warming since 1998, the Warmest Decade is still the 1930s . . . this is all a scam.

China increases Emissions more than Canada's Total Emissions every 4 months.

5 Billion folks in the 3rd World are increasing their use of Oil & Gas by 300% in the next decade.

Arctic Ice At Decade-High Level: Can Doomsayers Explain?

https://principia-scientific.com/arctic-ice-at-decade-high-level-can-doomsayers-explain/

This week, Kaliningrad, Russia and Minsk, Belarus were among the locales to suffer their earliest frosts in recorded history.

Yesterday, the mercury in Finland plunged as low as -7.5C (18.5F), at Ylivieska airport. In fact, this first week of September has been Finland’s coldest in decades, particularly in the South where the capital Helsinki has suffered its chilliest start to the month of September since 1941.

I refer all to the World Climate Declaration. This has been signed by over 1100 world renowned scientist, that call out these bogus claims. Check out the website, great information. The word that climate change is a hoax now has some very strong backing. People need to hear the other side, but mainstream media will never reveal these truths!!

Leonidas

We are headed for catastrophe all right! And the Climate Alarmists are leading the way.

I knew for fact that as soon at their plandemic ran out of steam it would be climate, climate, climate! Oh, and you can throw "monkey pox" in there too for good measure!

CanadianJeff

Yet another tipping point? Look back at the claims made in the 1980's, 1990's and 2000's. The one thing these climate alarmists are consistent in is their inability to predict. Prediction is a key part of real science, not so much when it comes to religious cults.

When Climate zealots claim the predictions were correct they never point to the predictions and headlines they made. They point to claims made by those auguring against them at the time. The real scientists made far more modest claims.

The destruction of science and healthcare as legitimate and trustworthy has been a major loss that will take generations to repair.

The climate probably is changing. The total extent of human involvement may be debatable however we still have to address the issue. That means actually thinking about solutions - not causing more problems with ad hoc solutions that are either counterproductive or not even remotely effective. Look at rare earth mining....

I suspect that carbon taxes are simply a government money grab - are they even remotely a solution? I cause more CO2 release and pay someone else to buy their 'carbon credits'? The climate notices how?

There are potential viable actions/solutions out there but it appears that only certain actions that prove financially opportunistic to a select few are applicable. Of course - there are those who make money but complaining loudly but essentially doing nothing.

The moment the Climate Change crowd diverts their funding, power, regulatory capture, media, research and politcal efforts to 'saving the world' through adaptation and lower energy costs...then they could possibly be considered as possibly credible.

We live on a small planet circling our sun, have an atmosphere which contains the heat and the gasses crucial to our life, in an infinite universe and somehow some folks thing we are in control?? Craziness...some think we know it all, may think we know sweet bugger all...

Man-made Gore-bull Warming. WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!

...Someday...

FreeMan

Ya ya, we have heard it all before, the fear mongering is not working any more. Man made global warming is a hoax, the planet warms and cools, and has done since it was created, Alberta was a shallow sea, dinosaurs lived here in an arid climate, and it is now returning to a cooler trend and these wankers need to increase their grip over humanity as quick as possible before we wake up.

Goose

Tell that to the dinosaurs. The idea that earth's climate is stable is cockamamie.

LRMT

Anthropogenic Global Warming still remains the largest hoax played upon mankind. Closely followed by Covid. Not surprisingly they use identical models to manipulate and mislead the sheeple.
