Apparently all the big problems have been solved because the Obama administration has moved on to proposing solutions for fake problems:
Today the White House delivered an ambitious target for cutting emissions of greenhouse gases. Those gases contribute to climate change. The commitment is part of a global effort to forge a new treaty to protect the climate. NPR’s Christopher Joyce has more. CHRISTOPHER JOYCE, BYLINE: The next big thing in international climate negotiations takes place next December in Paris. The United Nations will try to get every country – rich and poor and in between – to set a target to cut greenhouse gas emissions. Today President Obama officially put his cards on the table – cut emissions 26 to 28 percent below their level in 2005, and do it in 10 years. White House adviser Brian Dietz was quick to point out a press conference that the U.S. has already lowered its emissions, even as the economy has grown.
Never mind that satellite temperature measurements of our atmosphere have been flat since 1997:
And by all means, don’t worry about the fact that there is zero correlation between atmospheric CO2 concentrations and global temperature anomalies:
our science is researched be charlatans.
There is a strong incentive for the IPCC to demonstrate a warming trend. The end game is consolidation of power and wealth redistribution. And if you are in charge of the distributing, there is ample opportunity to line your pockets. The politicians in the recipient countries would also take their take, so they want to see warming too. Carbon Dioxide is not a strong factor in driving temperatures, so the models have been formulated to take advantage of any positive influence. Even with that, the models only show a modest warming trend. The problem is, the data does not show that trend. So lately, within the last year or so, the temperature data has been quietly adjusted to match the model. For instance, every data source in Paraguay was adjusted to show a warming trend, and they got caught doing it. But it is hard to blame them. If you want to get a piece of the redistribution pie, you have to show that your climate was damaged. It is also how we can be told that this past year was the warmest on record when it is freezing in late March. Anyhow, that is what I think is going on.
