It's All About Meeeeee!

America's lack of knowledge on climate change could prevent the world from reaching an agreement to stop catastrophic global warming, scientists said in an attack on the country's environmental policy.
Oh, here we go again
Professor John Schellnhuber, one of the world's leading global warming experts, described the US as "climate illiterate"
He said Americans have a lower understanding of the problems of climate change than people in Brazil or China.
A lower understanding, or are just becoming more discerning and less easily manipulated?
Prof Schellnhuber said rich countries have to cut emissions by at least 40 per cent by 2020 on 1990 levels to stand a chance of stopping catastrophic climate change.

However President Obama is already struggling to get legislation through the Senate that will commit the US to cutting emissions to 1990 levels and will face an even greater public backlash trying to meet more ambitious targets.
And if even the Shining One (though currently looking very tarnished lately) can’t do it, who can?

The problem seems to be, Prof, your lot has been rumbled. You are the little boy who cried ‘Wolf!’, and not only has no wolf yet shown up, people are beginning to wonder why you keep saying it, and what you stand to gain…
Prof Schellnhuber, who has played a key role in waking the world up to climate change through his work advising the German government, described the Copenhagen conference as "the most important meeting in the history of the human species".
Certainly seems to be the most important thing in the history of Prof Schellnhuber, doesn’t it..?

Off topic: Hugh Muir has rehashed his bleat about Doncaster mayor Peter Davies on CIF and is getting an almighty kicking from all and sundry.

Yup, and he's going to get one from me too :)

Dr Melvin T Gray said...

Wow, is that the time already?

Prof Fast'n'huber said...

What do you mean, you don't believe me? How about this then? An even bigger wolf is coming and its coming sooner... And there's more than one of them.... And its got a giant frickin' laser on its head.

Now do you believe me

Perhaps it is bcause the yanks actually have a vibrant, knowledgeable and organised sceptic community that fewer people are taken in my the Global Warming Scam - in particular sites like the excellent Watts Up With That and Steve McIntyre's Climate Audit which has recently dragged some very important data kicking and screaming out if the UK Met Office and the Royal Society that utterly debunks the famed (defamed?) Mann hockey stick graph which the IPCC used to advance the cause in the first place.

And if the fact that the Met Office and the Royal Society were loathe to release the data (which revealed extreme cherry picking by the hockey stick supporters) isn't enough to convince you that there is something fishy going on then the fact that both CiF and Climate Audit have been deleting comments from the sceptic community like crazy should tell you something about how they don't want the truth about Global Warming to get out.

It is the biggest scam in mankinds history and it is about to be completely and utterly debunked entirely by nature. What then for the Global Warming fraudsters? What then for science? Will anyone ever trust the governments and scientists who sought to perpetrate this fraud on us again?

"And its got a giant frickin' laser on its head. "

That's just as likely as anything Prof Chicken Licken postulates... :D

"It is the biggest scam in mankinds history and it is about to be completely and utterly debunked entirely by nature."

Can't wait. Bring it on, Gaia!
