The futility of carbon phobia


Now wake up from this nightmare. Last week, the Virginia-based Science and Public Policy Institute released a report showing, in chart form, the above results of Big Green's dream scenario. The SPPI study sports a cover graphic of a flaming dollar sign and a long title beginning "Analysis of US and State-by-State Carbon Dioxide Emissions," but readers are already just calling it "The Futility Report." 
The report's author, Paul Knappenberger, made his assumptions "based on the [United Nations] Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Assessment Reports." He ran a scenario in which "the U.S. as a whole stopped emitting all carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions immediately," and found that "the ultimate impact on projected global temperature rise would be a reduction, or a 'savings,' of approximately 0.08°C by the year 2050 and 0.17°C by the year 2100--amounts that are, for all intents and purposes, negligible." Under this wild scenario, not only do the rest of the world's new emissions completely replace ours in just 6.6 years, but China's growth alone replaces them in less than 11 years.

Ferguson concluded that Big Green is "not about to allow the Environmental Protection Agency to try measuring the results of spending billions in mitigation money, because the results are negligible if they exist at all." 
The SPPI has also kept on hand a 37-page 2009 publication edited by Sen. Orrin Hatch, R.-Utah, and titled "UN Climate Scientists Speak Out on Global Warming." It's full of blunt quotes from respected scientists suggesting that global warming is a power grab racket. 
For example, Massachusetts Institute of Technology climate scientist Richard Lindzen, who was a U.N. IPCC lead author and reviewer, said, "Controlling carbon is kind of a bureaucrat's dream. If you control carbon, you control life."
I think the proponents of the global warming theory tend to exaggerate the effects of CO2 in the atmosphere.  Their past models have not proven accurate at predicting temperature increases.  But it is clear that they have control freak aspirations.   They would control our lives and reduce our standard of living for basically nothing.  If the planet warms, we will need to adapt to that reality.  If it doesn't will will still have our freedom and our lifestyle.
