Climate Change This Week: The End Is (Still) Near

A leaked report by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change depicts a world on the verge of disaster.

A leaked report by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change depicts a crashing world, complete with impending wars and economic turmoil fostered by man-made greenhouse gases and overpopulation. We’ve all heard this before, but even as evidence mounts that the globe is reversing course, the IPCC continues to double down on catastrophic alarmism.

The Los Angeles Times writes, “The report describes a planet in peril as a result of the human-caused buildup of greenhouse gases since the Industrial Revolution, where glaciers are shrinking and plants and animals have shifted their ranges in response to rising temperatures. As global warming continues through the 21st century, many species will face greater risk of extinction, marine life will shift toward the poles and seawater will grow more acidic, the report says.” Consequently, rising oceans will force millions near coastal waters from their homes, the global food supply will be severely suppressed, monumental heat waves will worsen (which, coupled with a growing population, will result in an increase in the number of deaths), extreme weather events will accelerate, and – worst of all – these effects will escalate the threat of regional wars. And that’s not to mention sweaty underarms and burnt popcorn.

Meanwhile, the IPCC quietly corrected erroneous figures they cited in September. According to Reuters when the panel was forced to address the unanticipated hiatus in global warming – a development they attributed to unforeseen, natural factors that won’t prevent long-term warming. In other words, their facts – like their predictions – are “evolving.”

Such nonsense would be amusing if it weren’t for the fact that economic stability and, yes, people’s lives are being directly affected by policies based on scientific fallacies. Skeptics are continually chastised for questioning the legitimacy of the so-called scientific consensus that purports to know our future despite being continually and profoundly wrong. Ecofacists want to talk about what’s moral? Then look in the mirror.
