Gore’s promotion of “global warming” also has drawn the criticism of a prominent scientist:
According to a report at Climate Depot, Ivy League geologist Robert Giegengack, former chairman of Department of Earth and Environmental Science at the University of Pennsylvania, said he was “appalled” at Gore’s work, citing either Gore’s lack of understanding or knowing misrepresentation.
“It was irresponsible of Al Gore,” he said.
That someone should want to be in the middle of the “global warming” argument is fully justified, when one considers the world community is estimated to be looking at spending of $100 trillion before the end of the century on reducing the world’s temperature.
That’s enough to make 100 million people millionaires.
And that spending will generate a temperature reduction of a “grand total of three tenths of one degree,” according to Danish statistician Bjorn Lomborg, the head of the Copenhagen Consensus Center, reports Climate Depot.
Lomborg states: “We will spend at least one hundred trillion dollars in order to reduce the temperature by the end of the century by a grand total of three tenths of one degree – the equivalent of postponing warming by less than four years.”
He explained the calculation is based on the U.N.’s own climate prediction model.
The total is bigger than the world’s gross domestic product.
He warned that if the U.S. “delivers for the whole century on … President Obama’s very ambitious rhetoric, it would postpone global warming by about eight months at the end of the century.”
“But here is the biggest problem: These minuscule benefits do not come free – quite the contrary,” Lomborg said. “The cost of the U.N. Paris climate pact is like to run 1 to 2 trillion dollars every year.”
That’s compared to the U.S. annual budget of under $4 trillion.
Here’s a video with Lomborg’s full analysis and commentary:
Climate Change publisher Marc Morano reported the evaluation was provided as part of Lomborg’s criticism of the recent Paris Climate Agreement, which was much ballyhooed by the Obama administration as a major step forward.
