The crisis is so dire that even if all the countries stick to their Paris Accord commitments, it still won’t be enough to stop the planet heating by 2 degrees C or more.
Drastic lifestyle changes must be made, drastic carbon emissions cuts must be implemented to stave off further disaster,(no mention of how many of the thirty - something thousand deligates to the Paris climate conference turned up in private jets, oh no, us ordinary punters must change OUR lifestyles but the elites must live ever more lavishly, in order that they may be at their best when dealing with the onerous tasks involved in saving the planet.)
$2.4 trillion must be spent by 2035 on sustainable energy projects such as wind and solar
, (even though these 'sustainable' sources have failed to prove they can supply the baseload required by modern, developed societies.)
Climate-related risks to health, livelihoods, food security, water supply, human security, and economic growth are projected to increase as the planet warms
Vector borne diseases such as malaria and dengue fever will likely increase
One observer – Benny Peiser of the Global Warming Policy Foundation – describes it as the IPCC’s “Hail Mary”: its last, desperate shot at trying to scare a world which just doesn’t care any more. He's right. None of the predictions made by the warmageddonist lobby over the past twenty years have been correct. Snow is not a folk memory, the arcitic sea ice has not disappeared, the predicted 50 million refugees displaced by rising sea levels must be wearing Harry Potter's cloak of invisibility.
The reason people no longer believe the “last chance to save the planet” bollocks is first, we’ve heard it many times before, second, it hasn’t been supported by real-world evidence and thirdly because thanks to the internet and free speech (which governments, aided and abetted by Google and Facebook, want to abolish,) we have access to all the scientific research projects conducted by diligent researchers according to the scientific medthod (i.e. no adjusted data,) and these reports make sense.
Take that tired old line on vector borne diseases. Anyone who has followed this saga or researched it thoroughly knows that this claim was debunked years ago by an expert epidemiologist, Paul Reiter.
As far back as 1998, just as the hysteria was starting to rev up, Reiter delivered a lecture on this subject to the Cooler Heads Coalition:
All attempts to link specific recent outbreaks to climate change cannot survive a confrontation with the facts. In all cases, local conditions (such as the banning of DDT, land use changes, or foreign contact) account for expansions of disease vectors or increases in infection rates.
Yet here is the IPCC, trotting out the same old scare stories as if no one’s paying attention.
What is new, or new-ish, is the IPCC’s fairly frank acknowledgement that the Paris Climate Accord was a failure. What would be really meaningful is if the IPCC would admit that its attempts to push the globalist agenda by creating a big scary monster have failed.
