“your posts come across as arrogant and dismissive.”
I could say the same thing about a lot of posters on here, NI.
It isn’t a question as to whether “none of these proposals will work so we may as well carry on as before”. The reason they won’t work is because there isn’t a problem in the first place, at least where CO2 emissions are concerned. Climate ‘scientists’ have conned the politicians into believing the problem is far, far greater than it actually is.
A schoolboy can tell you that in order to understand how big a problem is you have to have data. Let’s face it, that’s hardly difficult for anyone to understand; and As I’ve explained on numerous occasions that data can only be arrived at through the use of computer models. There simply is no other way and anyone telling you otherwise is just plain lying.
I’ve also explained that for any computer model to have any credibility the confidence intervals for the results MUST be revealed. They never are for climate models and for one very simple reason, which is that for any computer model looking even just five years into the future, let alone longer, the number of variables involved means the confidence interval will be pretty much zero. In plain English the results from such models aren’t worth the paper they’re written on.
If you want to know why this has happened, as always just follow the money. This idea that academics are any less vulnerable to greed and success than anyone else is pure naivety. In fact they’re probably worse. Business people have realised they can make a huge amount of money out of all this while governments can both make money and control people’s lives.
What you all need to realise is just how serious this is going to get. The cost is going to be astronomical and it’s the poorest who will suffer most. The interruption to life is also going to be huge. There is absolutely no way the UK government can meet its targets without having to ration electricity, which is what we’ll see happen. It’s already happening in places across the world now relying on renewable energy, which is no fault of the renewables themselves but purely down to politicians who don’t understand the engineering problems involved.
If any of this was likely to make a difference, OK, but it won’t. People have absolutely no idea of the scale of what’s going to hit them. Well, it won’t be too long before they start to find out.
