The moldy rind of the rotten fruit that is the climate change hoax is coming off, thanks to a new study that says, effectively, that while global warming is happening, it’s not going to be nearly as bad as the propagandists have been telling us. In fact, the study predicts that the impact of global climate change will be 45% less intense than the currently-accepted scientific consensus.
Carried out by climatologist Judith Curry and UK-based mathematician Nick Lewis, the study analyzed the effect of greenhouse gases and other warming agents from the mid-1800s up to the present day. And while some of what they discovered is in line with the general trends espoused by the scientific establishment – winter waves off Scotland are growing, sea levels are rising, and stronger storms are developing – the scientists found that there was no cause for the current level of hysteria.
The study “forecast that future warming will be between 30 per cent and 45 per cent lower than suggested by simulations carried out by the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change,” according to the UK Express.
As published in the American Meteorological Society’s Journal of Climate, the study predicts that global temperatures will rise only 1.66 degrees Celsius, a dramatically lower estimate than the 3.1 degrees Celsius predicted by the IPCC. That estimate, by the way, formed the basis for a whole host of political maneuvers, including the Paris Climate Accords. Thankfully, President Trump pulled the U.S. out of that fiasco, but had we elected Hillary, we would right now be spending untold billions to decimate our energy sector and prop up third world countries…all in the name of phony science.
“Our results imply that, for any future emissions scenario, future warming is likely to be substantially lower than the central computer model-simulated level projected by the IPCC, and highly unlikely to exceed that level,” said Lewis.
Look, there are reasonable regulations we can use as a tool when dealing with whatever effects global warming might have, and there are free-market solutions that will naturally become apparent as we improve our technology. Clean fossil fuels like natural gas have already given us a path away from harmful carbon dioxide levels, and we’re sure that alternative energy systems will soon be cheap and plentiful enough to put fossil fuels in the rearview mirror.
The trouble comes when liberal governments try to “solve” a problem that doesn’t need solving, and that trouble is amplified when you have hoax science masquerading as the real thing. We don’t understand nearly as much about climate change as the left wants the world to believe, yet they are willing to throw our global economy into disarray to “address it.” As this study shows, they’re making a mountain out of a molehill.
