The Cancun Climate Capers

Excellent article by Fred Singer on what might transpire in Cancun. Read it at

Thank you ajmplanner, excellent indeed. When explained by Fred singer, it seems quite plausible a shift from Kyoto to Montreal Protocol and the rebirth of the Ozone Hole hype. That would make happy Christiana Figueres and Evo Morales.

An interesting comment to the article:

One other thing that ties this whole mess together: Dr Singer's criticisms about CFCs' alleged effect on the ozone layer were met with fierce resistance in the early 1990s by the eco-advocacy group "Ozone Action", the same group who had Kalee Kreider as one of their workers (who is now Al Gore's spokesperson), and arguably the same group that is the epicenter for the '96-to-present smear of skeptic scientists. There is one overriding fatal flaw here - we are told skeptic scientists should be ignored, but there seems to be no valid reason to ignore them when the accusation of corruption against them is unsupportable.

What about WW11 level of rationing for 20 years for all developed countries to allow the undeveloped countries to catch up? Angry Angry Angry

Richard111, I´m not sure if you´ve seen the Telegraph´s article: the rationing proposal has just been made at Cancun:

Cancun climate change summit: scientists call for rationing in developed world

Quote:“The Second World War and the concept of rationing is something we need to seriously consider if we are to address the scale of the problem we face,” he said.

Prof Anderson insisted that halting growth in the rich world does not necessarily mean a recession or a worse lifestyle, it just means making adjustments in everyday life such as using public transport and wearing a sweater rather than turning on the heating.

“I am not saying we have to go back to living in caves,” he said. “Our emissions were a lot less ten years ago and we got by ok then.”

FRUITCAKE.

" does not necessarily mean a recession or a worse lifestyle, "
Pull the other one, it's got bells on.
Private transport to public transport, more clothes because your colder
(Incidentally omitting to explain why we would be colder - why we can not afford heating costs, or
why we can not afford a car any longer, or get to work on time reliably,
as public transport does not cover everywhere, 24/7 to travel to work),
in a supposedly warming world.....

MSM, politicians, have not picked up on this. ???
"We" have / will, this is going to get messy.
The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed
(and hence clamorous to be led to safety)
by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

The opening quote from your link:

Quote:Global warming is now such a serious threat to mankind that climate change experts are calling for Second World War-style rationing in rich countries to bring down carbon emissions.


:thumbdown:

Global Warming stopped a few years ago and now show signs of a significant cool down in the near future.

Why ration over a non existent problem?

For the European Socialists who have been at the forefront of AGW looniness, "global warming" has always been about re-distribution of wealth "to level the playoing field" ; and population control to save the planet from the evils of industrialization. Rationing is just another arrow in their re-distribution quiver. They were very clever to realize from the outset that AGW was a path to their utopian world view. They put the enormous AGW science and media machines in place to create the myth. In spite of the growing evidence against even the most basic assumptions of AGW, they press on undaunted as do their minions in science and media. Let's hope they are as unsuccessful in Cancun as they were in Copenhagen. I don't know if "three strikes and you're out" applies here, but two strikes would be a good start.

utopian world view. All people are equal. Some people are more equal than others.

Now why do such thoughts come to mind?

The bad news is the current cold spell will abate by December 23 and the winter will turn mild. This will apply to Europe and the USA. The cold will continue in East Europe and Asia but they don't matter. Walmers will go beserk!

It appears Joe Bastardi disagrees with Piers Corbyn in regards of this winter in Europe.
Should be an interesting test.

If I were a betting man my money would be on Piers forecasts, see the below linked to thread, post 17, and attachment.

With respect to Dr. Singer. It is a common mistake to think the ozone "hole" was discovered in 1985. That is when the press reports the discovery. The Antarctic ozone "hole" was discovered in 1956 by Dr. Gordon Dobson of Oxford University. The unit of measurement for ozone layer is called the Dobson Unit.

Dr. Singer´s analysis might be right. NIWA is beginning to hype the ozone hole. From Scoop News:

Antarctic ozone hole: smallest in five years

Quote:“We see a lot of year-to-year variation in ozone holes, caused by differences in atmospheric temperature and circulation. So we can’t definitively say the ozone hole is improving from one new year of observations. However, we have now had a few years in succession with less severe holes. That is an indication we may be beginning to see a recovery.”

“With continued monitoring, and by using the tools we have developed to calculate overall ozone hole severity and statistical analysis of their significance, we will soon be able to assess whether we are really seeing the start of a sustained, long-term recovery,” Dr Wood says.

In addition to the Antarctic measurements, NIWA scientists are using sophisticated models on NIWA’s new supercomputer to estimate when ozone will recover to the levels they were prior to widespread use of CFCs.

The very same time the sun is less active.The very same last few years.

I received this link from Russel Cook and thought it should be posted here.It expands on the quoted Russel Cooks comment,posted by Strogoff:

The '96-to-present smear of skeptic scientists - or at least what I've dredged up
