Yawn...

Yes, we are tipsy from tipping points.

"Time is running out," WMO Secretary-General Michel Jarraud said in a statement.

"This should serve as yet another wake-up call about the constantly rising levels of greenhouse gases which are driving climate change. If we are to preserve our planet for future generations, we need urgent action to curb new emissions of these heat-trapping gases."

Almost 200 governments have agreed to work out a deal by the end of 2015 to slow climate change as part of efforts to limit the average temperature increase to two degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) above pre-industrial times.

Temperatures have already risen about 0.8C (1.4F).


"Temperatures have already risen about 0.8°C" -- as if that is a bad thing. If temperatures had not risen we would never have been able to feed the world's current population. Mass starvation would have resulted. 

In addition to its scientific obtuseness, Big Climate refuses to even discuss all of the good things warmer temperatures and more CO2 have brought and will bring. Even greater crop yields, less energy use for heating, fewer deaths (far more people die from cold than heat), etc., etc.

Again: Global warming is not "no" problem. But, it has benefits and it is not the unmitigated catastrophe that Big Climate would have you believe. After all, if it is not a catastrophe their dollars stop flowing.
