Climate change activists are adamant that if we don’t act quickly, that our planet is going to reach a point where it’s too late to turn back and life as we know it will ultimately end.
Al Gore has been warning us for years that this would happen, and more recently, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has said that if we don’t act now, we may not be here in 12 years.
But that’s not what actually scientists believe is going to happen. The story they tell is quite different than the one we here from politicians.
According to Red State,
Pat Michaels, former president of the American Association of State Climatologists, dissected the 12 year/extinction claim. “It’s warmed up around one degree Celsius since 1900, and life expectancy doubled, yet that temperature ticks up another half a degree and the entire system crashes? That’s the most absurd belief.”
And what happens when in all likelihood we’re all still here in pretty much the same condition in 12 years?
Climatology Professor David Legates predicted, “In twelve years it’ll be 12 more years.”
Exactly. How long has this been going on? Since at least the 1970s when folks pushed the spurious claim we might be entering a new ice age.
Willie Soon said it was all about emotional handwaving.
But, as the scientists explained, we adapt and address conditions. That’s the human way.
Stossel asked the scientists, “You acknowledge though the water is rising?”
Legates agreed. “Yes, the water has been rising for approximately 20,000 years.” Alrighty, now.
The scientists also debunked “global warming is making storms worse” and that carbon dioxide is only a harm both of which they pointed out are wrong.
Another myth? Government can somehow save us.
“The Obama’s administration’s model projects that the amount of global warming that would be saved going to zero emissions tomorrow … would be 14 hundredths of a degree Celsius,” according to Michaels.
Here’s the biggest problem with climate change activists, they really have no idea what’s going on. They have no understanding of the actual science or data behind what they’re claiming.
Actual scientists that are not influenced by political motives aren’t afraid to provide evidence contradictory to what the activists are claiming.
