[Update: Global warming activist scientists may not be the first to proclaim a doomsday year of 2047 as the end of time! — 2047 is the new 2012 — but global warming activists were beaten to Armageddon!]
Oh No! A new Mayan Calendar Deadline! ’2047 Is The New 2012!’ AP: ‘Temperatures Go Off the Charts Around 2047′ — ‘Starting in about a decade, Kingston, Jamaica, will probably be off-the-charts hot — permanently’ — ‘And eventually the whole world in 2047′ — AP’s Seth Borenstein: ‘To arrive at their projections, the researchers used weather observations, computer models and other data to calculate the point at which every year from then on will be warmer than the hottest year ever recorded over the last 150 years.’ — Doomsday dates for American cities: ‘By 2043, 147 cities — more than half of those studied — will have shifted to a hotter temperature regime that is beyond historical records…The 2047 date for the whole world is based on continually increasing emissions of greenhouse gases from the burning of coal, oil and natural gases. If the world manages to reduce its emissions of carbon dioxide and other gases, that would be pushed to as late as 2069, according to Mora.’ (So, if the world manages to reduce carbon emissions, we’d only gain 22 years before the world ends.)
World to roast by 2047, film at 11: ‘A new Vinerism has emerged: “Within my generation, whatever climate we were used to will be a thing of the past’
Did Bob Geldof get advance copy of 2047 end of times study!? Musician-turned-activist Bob Geldof: ‘All humans will die before 2030′ due to global warming! ‘We may not get to 2030. We need to address the problem of climate change urgently’
Meet Prof. Camilo Mora, the man who uses climate models to warn you of ‘The Coming Plague’ — ‘A climate plague affecting every living thing will likely start in 2020 in southern Indonesia, scientists warned Wednesday in the journal Nature’ —
Prof. Camilo Mora: ‘Within my generation, whatever climate we were used to will be a thing of the past.’
‘We don’t know what the impacts will be. If someone is about to fall off a three-story building you can’t predict their exact injuries but you know there will be injuries,” said Camilo Mora, an ecologist at University of Hawai’i in Honolulu and lead author. “The results shocked us. Regardless of the scenario, changes will be coming soon,” said Mora. Extreme weather will soon be beyond anything ever experienced, and old record high temperatures will be the new low temperatures, Mora told IPS. This will affect billions of people and there is no going back to way things were.’ Mora bio here.
Warmists now concede world temps not outside of climate variability?! Climatologist Dr. Pat Michaels & Chip Knappenberger mock new 2047 study: ‘Uh, correct us if we are wrong, but we already thought that global temperatures were reported to be at unprecedented levels in recorded history’ — ‘New York City has already reached its ‘climate departure’ date and no one noticed’
Statistician Dr. Matt Brigs Mocks: ‘End Of The World Set For 2047. Plan Accordingly’ — Briggs: ‘Science says we have 34 years left…Dude. If Mora is right the last thing we want to be is sober. If the temperatures keep soaring the way they’ve done over the past seventeen years, I’m going to start hanging out with Bob Geldorf and at least go out with a withered smile on my face. Well, maybe the temperatures haven’t been soaring, maybe they’ve been holding steady or even decreasing. But that’s a mere observation and observation can’t trump theory…That many computer models (39) simply cannot be wrong. Sure, one or two could be off. But 39? That would be unprecedented. I used to complain about the asinine use of statistics in papers like this—they have straight-line correlations and wee p-values!—but I’ve learned my lesson. There’s too many authors with opinions different than mine; therefore, they must be right, and I must be wrong.’
Quick, Pass a Carbon Tax! Warmist Michael Mann says ‘end-of-climate-by-2047′ study may be ‘overly rosy’ — Michael Mann said the research ‘may actually be presenting an overly rosy scenario when it comes to how close we are to passing the threshold for dangerous climate impacts.’
Quote of the Year: Climate Models Have Problems — NYT: ‘No one is sure how accurate they will prove to be at peering many decades ahead’ — Cigarette packages come with warning labels. So should IPCC reports.
The coverage in the New York Times that was truly remarkable. The story there was 20 paragraphs long. This was paragraph number six: ‘The research comes with caveats. It is based on climate models, huge computer programs that attempt to reproduce the physics of the climate system and forecast the future response to greenhouse gases. Though they are the best tools available, these models contain acknowledged problems, and no one is sure how accurate they will prove to be at peering many decades ahead.’
