As we wrap up the coldest winter in a century and parts of the northeast are getting snow this morning, along come the climate clowns with another fresh batch of hysterical pronouncements, led by our so-called Secretary of State. This man is a complete buffoon.
The release of a United Nations report detailing the pervasive effects of climate change should serve as a call to action for the world’s nations to curb the emission of greenhouse gases, Secretary of State John Kerry argued Sunday night.
In a statement issued by the State Department, Kerry called denial of climate change science “malpractice” and warned the “costs of inaction are catastrophic.”
“Read this report and you can’t deny the reality: Unless we act dramatically and quickly, science tells us our climate and our way of life are literally in jeopardy,” Kerry said.
The document, issued by the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, found that the sweeping effects of climate change were impacting every part of the globe.
The group of Nobel Prize-winning scientists warned that unless countries act quickly to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the rising sea would devastate costal areas, the world will suffer from widespread hunger due to droughts or flooding, and extreme storms could threaten infrastructure and emergency services.
“The clock is ticking,” Kerry said. “The more we delay, the greater the threat. Let’s make our political system wake up and let’s make the world respond.”
The 32-volume report warned that the United States was likely to see massive wildfires, while killer heat waves in Europe and sever droughts in Australia would threaten both human life and agriculture. It predicts poverty, sickness, and violence will spike as weather events become more extreme.
“Nobody on this planet is going to be untouched by the impacts of climate change,” Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Chairman Rajendra Pachauri told the Associated Press.
The White House echoed Kerry’s alarm bells in a statement from science and technology czar John Holdren, who said the report “highlights the widespread and substantial observed impacts of climate change, and its growing adverse effects on livelihoods, ecosystems, economies, and human health.”
“Climate change is a global threat, touching every region of the world and every sector of the economy,” he said.
Pachauri was long ago discredited as a scam artist and fraud, so paying any attention to him is a waste of time. Yet he’s still in his position despite numerous scandals and we have our government actually taking him seriously. And morons like Kerry think calling peopel “deniers” will bring them around to his increasingly shaky position.
