UPDATED: WWF: "Five years to save world"

Five years, three years, ten years, fifty years - pick a number. The climate moonbats at WWF are in turbo-hysteria mode as Copenhagen approaches:
The economic modelling, commissioned by WWF Australia, has found that an emissions trading scheme is not enough to drive the change needed to sufficiently cut global emissions.

Instead, it says governments must rapidly put in place greater incentives for industry to make the transition.
Karl Mallon, a scientist with Climate Risk and one of the key authors of the report, says 2014 has been calculated as the point at which there is no longer enough time to develop the industries that can deliver a low carbon economy.

"The point of no return," he said.

"If we wait until past 2014 or that's what modelling shows, then simply put, it will be impossible for industries to grow to the scale that has to be achieved in the time that is available.

"So essentially, we'll miss the target and I guess then we are left with the consequences of what happens if we go about two degrees warming."

Ho hum.

  • Let me see ... this is the same WWF that was waving a study around a couple of years ago about how the "Arctic Meltdown Near Its 'Tipping Point'" ??
    (http://www.nowpublic.com/environment/arctic-meltdown-near-its-tipping-point-warns-wwf)
    The study that has since proved to be spectacularly wrong?
    And they expect us to believe them now when they wave more of this rubbish around?

    WWF are serial abusers of this "tipping point" alarm hysteria, as a simple Google search will show.

    Personally, I prefer the opinion of economists on this matter of tipping points. As you would expect of economists, they provide suitably vague and fluffy projections that everyone can feel comfortable with:

  • Have they no shame? Answer, no. The warmists are not above falsifying data, so I guess we should not be surprised they also continue to tell us the sky is falling and the world is about to end. I cannot wait for the day when we can ALL agree that a large segment of the scientific whored themselves for the taxpayer's money. No wonder the alarmism is fading amongst the general public, we have heard this same doomsday claim for decades without ever seeing one piece of the sky on the ground.

  • The end is near, unless.....

    Regarding recent reports of a projected 6.3° rise by the end of the century? That's way up from the previous "model prediction" and pretty scary. Your flippant attitude is not helpful in this serious matter. We had better undertake some "bold" responses otherwise-----

    Wait, this just came in.

    Now the temp is predicted to rise 10.4° within the next 40 years! Someone must step up, so I propose to boldly lead the fight against this terrible fate. Mail me a check for $250 to--------

    Hold on, here's a news flash!!!

    Now they say that Global temps are "absolutely positively" going to increase by 18.2° by 2020 unless immediate action is taken NOW! So TODAY you must call, before midnight tonight, with your pledge (all major credit cards accepted) for $5000, otherwise--------

    Unbelievable!!! ANOTHER study just came out this very second that predicted temps will rise 37° by next Thursday and your hair will spontaneously combust, unless 6.2 gigadollars is spent NOW. You must transfer your entire savings account and your IRA to me by email immediately or you and all your family will DIE; EXPIRE, MUERTE; ASSUME (a much higher) ROOM TEMPERATURE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You have one hour to pay me, or else!! (all donors receive a good citizenship plaque, a cute little green lapel pin, and a coupon good for a "Whopper".)
