Good news, everyone! We’re not all going to die from the planet mimicking a global Texas summer.
According to the Daily Wire, scientists have found that the global warming models presented by climate alarmists aren’t as dramatic as what is likely going to happen:
The new study, conducted by climatologist Judith Curry and mathematician Nick Lewis and published in the American Meteorological Society’s “Journal of Climate” on April 23, downgrades the predicted global temperature increases by 30-45% compared to the forecasts of the IPCC.
“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. The study predicts temperature increases of 1.66C and 1.33C compared to the IPCC models’ more dramatic predictions of 3.1C and 1.9C, respectively, a reduction ranging from 45-30%.
The downgraded forecasts of Curry and Lewis were published a few months after a study headed up by the University of Exeter’s Peter Cox, which concluded that the most dire of the U.N.’s climate change models were almost certainly too high. “Our study all but rules out very low and very high climate sensitivities,” said Cox. The scientists significantly narrowed the range of possible temperature changes from the U.N.’s widely variable range of 1.5 – 4.5C to a more moderate 2.2 – 3.4C, with a best estimate of an increase of 2.8C by 2100.
In other words, the changes alarmists at the U.N. predicted were off by quite a bit, and you should never trust an organization with a political aim to do your sciencing for you.
It seems like every year we get another doomsday chart from the church of climate change, and every year nothing happens. At some point, we’re going to have to admit that the debate on climate change isn’t as over as those who push this climate catastrophism say it is. There are so many factors, variables, and unforseen results when it comes to climate change that it’s nearly impossible to predict what’s going to happen decades down the line.
The question isn’t “is the climate changing?” The answer to that is clearly yes, but a changing climate is par for the course when it comes to planet Earth. The planet went through plenty of dramatic changes long before humans arrived. The question is how much is mankind changing the climate, and is it actually having as dramatic an effect as some say it is.
But I don’t want this answer being given to us by scientists and politicians with a motive. I want a clear, and level conversation where I’m not labeled as a social pariah because I didn’t agree with Al Gore’s latest joke of a prediction.
