              7 Pieces of Fake News About the Latest U.S. Climate Report
              by Bjorn Lomborg, an environmentalist who believes in Climate Change. But he is not an alarmist. Because of that, he is one of the few worth taking seriously.
              Here are the 7 ways the media misled you about the report:

              1. Climate scientist Michael Mann appeared on CNN and NPR talking about “unprecedented weather extremes.” The only problem with that is that, according to the report itself, we are not experiencing “unprecedented weather extremes.” Lomborg writes…
              Actually, the assessment, and science, tell a different story. “Drought statistics over the entire contiguous US have declined,” the report finds, reminding us that “the Dust Bowl era of the 1930s remains the benchmark drought and extreme heat event.”

              2. This is also true with respect to flooding. The report did not “attribute changes in flooding to anthropogenic [human] influence nor report detectable changes in flooding magnitude, duration or frequency.”

              3. All those screaming headlines in the New York Times and on CNN about Climate Change shrinking the economy by ten percent are wildly misleading…
              Actually, the UN’s climate scenarios envision US GDP per capita will more than triple by the end of this century, so this ten percent reduction would come from an economy 300 percent larger than it is today.

              4. But even the misleading ten percent figure is “dodgy,” as Lomborg puts it:
              It assumes that temperatures will increase about 14 degrees Fahrenheit by the end of the century [2100]. This is unlikely. The US climate assessment itself estimates that, with no significant climate action, American temperatures will increase by between 5 and 8.7 degrees. Using the high estimate of 8.7 degrees, the [GDP] damage would be only half as big, at 5 percent.

              And keep in mind that five percent is coming out of a 300 percent increase.

              5. What’s more, that 8.7 degree figure is also suspect:
              The 8.7-degree warming estimate is unrealistically pessimistic. This stems from an extreme high-emission scenario that expects almost the entire world to revert to using massive amounts of coal: a five-fold increase from today.

              Additionally, the only way that 8.7 degree prediction comes true is if the world burns more fossil fuel than is “plausibly available for use, according to one study.”

              6. The biggest flaw in that ten percent hysteria, however, comes from the fact that a full two-thirds of it is based on an estimate of how many people will die due to increasing temperatures. Lomborg punctures this notion using common sense:
              This assumes that even if temperatures were to increase by 14 degrees, people would die in masses, ignoring the fact that people have been shown to adjust over time to temperature changes. Then, too, over the 80 years until 2100, people can make many additional changes that reduce this risk, from getting air conditioners to changing how they build structures.

              Humans are extraordinarily capable of adapting to their environments, and technology has only made this easier and ridiculously affordable. There is simply no reason these people have to die.

              Moreover, in the unlikely event the world’s temperature increases by 14 degrees, this would mean that cold and frigid areas would become more tolerable for human habitation. Even better, these areas could become more conducive for farming and food production.

              7. Fighting Climate Change is more wasteful than adapting to it:
              The Paris Agreement target of 3.6 degrees [cooler] would cost some $134 trillion, much more than the associated climate benefits. Such prescriptions for climate change are worse than the disease.


              I also recommend Lomborg’s book Cool It.

                I hope no one believes this nonsense. Any analysis that posits that the answer to climate change is that everyone can buy air conditioners is like the work of a 4th grader.

                  If we get rain or snow it's going to be a wet winter.

                  If we don't get rain or snow it will be a dry winter.

                  Nothing new about that. The question is kind of lame.

                And as we in the developed countries adapt to higher temperatures, how will the permafrost in Canada and Siberia adapt and avoid melting and releasing the tons of CO2 currently trapped there? Maybe the Finns have a solution similar to their raking of the forests to avoid catastrophic fires.

                Anyone tempted to follow Lomborg into his fantasy land should Google Bjorn Lomborg and the book Cool It. It has been debunked like all other climate change denier nonsense.

      You keep posting this but it doesn't even make sense. Mice do not belong to a socialized society involving mouse traps. They do not pay taxes that provide cheese for mouse traps.

      Unlike mice, real people benefit from many socialized services in our society including those provided by fire and police departments. And they are not free, but paid for by our taxes.

      Your understanding of how our government works is not good.

            The word is "Too". Too intelligent to believe in climate change, just like me.

            I have lived to see so many media and scientifically-driven end-of-the-world predictions collapse under the weight of reality, I have nearly lost count.

            This is how old I am. … Old enough to remember being told that by now…
            We would be living through a new Ice Age by the year 2000.
            We would all die when the ozone layer disappeared.
            The oceans would be dead.
            Global Cooling would destroy the world.
            Acid rain would destroy our forests.
            Overpopulation would result in worldwide famine.
            We would deplete our natural resources.
            We would run out of oil.
            The polar ice caps would melt.
            Manhattan would be underwater.
            People who live in cities will have to wear gas masks.
            Nitrogen buildup will make the land unusable.
            “Decaying organic pollutants would use up all of the oxygen in America’s rivers, causing freshwater fish to suffocate.”

            Mankind can not even accurately predict the weather two weeks ahead, let alone the climate fifty or a hundred years from now.

            Over the last half-century the Holy Scientific Consensus has gotten everything wrong, from your breakfast food to the literal apocalypse. But now we are supposed to roll over and play socialist because the Holy Consensus says Climate Change will wipe us out by 2050?

            Sorry, no.

              Trump said he has high levels of intelligence, but he isn't a believer. Too bad facts don't care if you believe in them or not.

              The "global cooling" hypothesis is from 2 magazine articles in the 70's, but was never scientific consensus.

              World-wide action was taken to remove CFCs from consumer products to protect the ozone layer (an example of making scientific-based actions that averted disaster)

              The oceans are not doing well...

              Acid rain; again an example of a problem remedied by science. Pollution controls added to factories reduced oxides of sulfur and nitrogen, pre-cursors to acid rain.

              Overpopulation is resulting in famine in many countries.

              Natural resources are being depleted. The costs, environmental and monetary, are increasing to extract those resources. This includes oil, and technology has improved as well to access previously inaccessible supplies.

              The ice caps ARE melting. It may even be a factor in California's drought. Read about the Ridiculously Resilient Ridge.

              People in many cities do wear masks to help breathe. Geez, look at the bay area from the smoke just last month.

              No one is asking you to roll over and play socialist to listen to science. We can all have different opinions, but that doesn't change that we are working with the same facts.

                      The Southern ice cap is growing because of Global Cooling. The next Ice Age is coming!!

                      True.
                      Less traffic of Nazi flying saucers from the inner-earth, so I've noticed.

    Fox news and trump are complete fools. Climate change is very real. Trump needs to vacate the White House. It’s only for real presidents. Not fake ass criminals.
