Oversensitive: How The IPCC Hid The Good News On Global Warming
Nicholas Lewis and Marcel Crok show that the best observational evidence indicates our climate is considerably less sensitive to greenhouse gases than climate models are estimating. Full report here
climate rules aimed at phasing out coal-fired power in favor of low-carbon fuels will come at a high cost, according to a newly released report.
Over the next two decades, the EPA’s rules to fight global warming will cost the economy $2.23 trillion, raise energy prices and lower families’ incomes.
Using economic models based on the federal government’s National Energy Model System, the conservative Heritage Foundation found that, by the end of 2023, EPA climate regulations will cost the U.S. nearly 600,000 jobs and reduce a family of four’s income by $1,200.
EPA rules would also raise energy prices and cost the economy $2.23 trillion from 2015 to 2038.
NYT’s Tom Friedman plan to ‘frighten Putin’: Raise U.S. gas taxes and enact a carbon tax! ‘I’d also raise our gasoline tax, put in place a carbon tax’
Why Putin Doesn’t Respect Us
I’d also raise our gasoline tax, put in place a carbon tax and a national renewable energy portfolio standard — all of which would also help lower the global oil price (and make us stronger, with cleaner air, less oil dependence and more innovation).
You want to frighten Putin? Just announce those steps. But you know the story, the tough guys in Washington who want to take on Putin would rather ask 1 percent of Americans — the military and their families — to make the ultimate sacrifice than have all of us make a small sacrifice in the form of tiny energy price increases. Those tough guys who thump their chests in Congress but run for the hills if you ask them to vote for a 10-cent increase in the gasoline tax that would actually boost our leverage, they’ll never rise to this challenge. We’ll do anything to expose Putin’s weakness; anything that isn’t hard. And you wonder why Putin holds us in contempt?
A new one: Man-made global warming causes ‘feminizing’ of turtles! UN climate chief Figueres: Because of CO2, ‘scientists are seeing the feminizing of marine turtle populations’
Statue of Liberty ‘will be lost to sea level rise’ – Global warming to put Statue of Liberty underwater by 4000 AD, says new warmist study
Marzeion said that by looking at sea level rises over such a long timespan – 2000 years – such short-term uncertainties would be smoothed out. His co-author, Anders Levermann, of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, said: “After 2000 years, the oceans would have reached a new equilibrium state and we can compute the ice loss from Greenland and Antarctica from physical models. At the same time, we consider 2000 years a short enough time to be of relevance for the cultural heritage we cherish.”
