Only 10% Will Survive ‘Global Warming’

From the Scotsman:

Warming will ‘wipe out billions’

By Jenny Fyall

29 November 2009

MOST of the world’s population will be wiped out if political leaders fail to agree a method of stopping current rates of global warming, one of the UK’s most senior climate scientists has warned.

Professor Kevin Anderson, director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change, believes only around 10 per cent of the planet’s population – around half a billion people – will survive if global temperatures rise by 4C.

Anderson’s warning comes just eight days before global leaders meet in Copenhagen for the most crucial talks on climate change reversal since the Rio summit in 1992. Current Met Office projections reveal that the lack of action in the intervening 17 years – in which emissions of climate changing gases such as carbon dioxide have soared – has set the world on a path towards potential 4C rises as early as 2060, and 6C rises by the end of the century.

Anderson, who advises the government on climate change, said the consequences were "terrifying".

"For humanity it’s a matter of life or death," he said. "We will not make all human beings extinct as a few people with the right sort of resources may put themselves in the right parts of the world and survive.

"But I think it’s extremely unlikely that we wouldn’t have mass death at 4C. If you have got a population of nine billion by 2050 and you hit 4C, 5C or 6C, you might have half a billion people surviving."

Efforts at the Copenhagen summit, which starts on 7 December, will focus on action to instead keep temperature rises to no more than 2C – generally accepted as the threshold for dangerous climate change. However, with growing pessimism that a binding agreement on emissions reduction targets will be reached, Anderson warned time was running out.

If ambitious global targets for reductions have not been set by the end of next year, he believes it will be too late to stop emissions rising beyond 2C.

Last week, Britain and France urged the wealthiest nations to set aside $10 billion annually over the next three years to help poorer countries reduce the output of greenhouse gases.

Scotland has set a 42 per cent emissions reduction target for 2020 but Anderson pointed out that even if this was achieved by rich nations throughout the world, it would only give a 60 per cent chance of avoiding a 2C global temperature increase.

Despite pessimism over the past few weeks he was optimistic a legal agreement can still be reached at Copenhagen. He believes leaders are deliberately trying to lower expectations to increase the impact of any success at the summit.

"The worst possible result at Copenhagen is a bad deal where the world leaders have to come home and say it’s a good deal when its rubbish," he added.

"That’s the real danger – that they will feel under pressure to sign up to anything. That could lock us into something bad for the next ten years."

Stewart Stevenson, Scotland’s climate change minister, who will also be attending the summit, said: "Even quite moderate predictions do suggest that we will have vast movements of people around the world particularly on the borders of desert regions and that associated with that will be loss of life."

The ‘Warm Mongers’ are really ratcheting up their hysteria. It is beyond laughable.

Never mind that if this report were actually true and the ‘experts’ were honest, they would be dancing in the streets for joy.

For what would be better for the Goddess Gaia in the long run than to wipe out 90% of the human population?

But of course the report isn’t true and the experts aren’t honest.

Anderson, who advises the government on climate change, said the consequences were "terrifying".

The ‘Warmers’ are trying to terrify us into signing onto Copenhagen — and worse.

How are they not terrorists? Shouldn’t there be some legal consequences for doing this?

By the way, the Tyndall Center looms large in the CRU emails.

What a surprise, huh?

    I’ve seen it all now………a scientist (?) with a gun pointed at the wealthiest nations demanding $10 Billion per year from each or else.

    “Officer, I saw the whole thing!”

  2. proreason says:

    They are the greatest criminals (and certainly the most audacious) who have ever lived.

    Since the demise of the Devine Right of Kings, these people have been searching for the magic bullet to put them back on top forever.

    Global Warming is it, and no amount of facts is going to dislodge them from their pursuit.

  3. GetBackJack says:

    Not that this stuff hasn’t been going on since the Beginning of Time, but …

    At the end of the Age – which I profoundly believe we are – it makes sense to me that the dark lord’s minions and followers would no longer care to wear their masks, charades and plausibly deniable personalities … that they will begin to nakedly be, whom they really are.

    And that, up ahead, be a cliff.

    Where they’re marching.

    Obama/Gore in 2012. Hey, why not. Either the U.S. will be called the United Socialist States of America or The Soviet Socialist States of America, either way the country will be a screwed up mess the way this adiminstration is running it into the ground.

  5. Tater Salad says:

    Question: Why doesn’t Al Gore move this 28,000 sq.ft. mansion up to say, Chicago where the winters are a little longer than Tennessee and the summers are a little breezier? Since this so-called global warming then is really heating up and everyone is dying, he could move right in next to Rev. Wright and that big white subburbia neighborhood with the rest of the rich Obama loving loons!

  6. untrainable says:

    The closer they get to being publicly proven liars, the more biting and high pitched the rhetoric will become. OMG only 10% will survive? But they suspiciously gloss over all of the “if”s in their equation. I seem to recall warmies predicting that we only had 10 years until the oceans could no longer support life. That was 20 years ago!

    When will someone compile a list of all the “end of life on Earth” cryers, their predictons, compare them to the fact that we’re not all dead already, and hold them responsible for their deception?

    The Oblamer will sign anything they put in front of him at Copenhagen just so he can say he signed something. But when the economic backlash slaps us all in the face, it’ll be Bush’s fault, or the fact that Obie’s advisors were wrong and they will be quickly swept out of sight on a Friday afternoon to avoid the weekly news cycle. Bastards.

    Has anybody else noticed the increase in quantity of these type of cataclysmic, sky-is-falling global warming stories since the CRU emails were leaked?

  8. wardmama4 says:

    10% – I can deal with that.

    If their implication is that the 10% comprises those whose carbon footprints are minimal – I find the irony that me and mine will be among the survivors and that the ‘Goracle’ won’t be (I checked Uncle Al’s website do-hicky – our carbon footprint is below zero – his isn’t) just karmic justice.

  9. wardmama4 says:

    Ok – this idiot is talking 2050 and 2060 – whew I don’t even need to worry at all -and neither do you – 2012 and we’re all toast.

    So what me worry – It all depends upon which terrorist alarmist you listen to as to how long you have to live.

    And they call Bush a fear monger – compared to them – he was a piker.

  10. beautyofreason says:

    “”We will not make all human beings extinct as a few people with the right sort of resources may put themselves in the right parts of the world and survive. ”

    Completely nuts. I guess this mentality is why California wants to ban plasma screens.

    I’m speechless, but I shouldn’t be.

    There comes a point when the moronic scare tactics become so reckless, so over – the – top that they fail to agitate the masses and the B.S. starts to reek.

    Then again, millions of Americans voted for an admirer of Jeremiah Wright, so perhaps I should not be surprised.

    If you are cheating on your wife, not to worry. Global Warming is making you do it.

    • WTBFreedom says:

      Oh dear God. I wouldn’t believe that list unless I had actually clicked on several of the links. Kitten Invasions? Give me a break.

    • Liberals Demise says:

      Hopefully they aren’t a part of the 10%.
      I guess it is time to cleanse the gene pool.

    • wardmama4 says:

      Isn’t this the same type of hokey that They use to smear religion – that anything/everything can change and/or is caused by a person becoming a religious person (I must be sick, I can’t remember all the insults to God/Religion that the trolls throw out)?!?

      They must be getting desperate – as the ‘writing’ is on the wall – you can only see, step in or small manure so long before you tend to avoid it altogether.

      And there is even more manure (as in BS) being processed in DC than ever, ever before.

    • Rusty Shackleford says:

      “Isn’t this the same type of hokey that They use to smear religion-“

      Only if you use the “hokey-stick” graph (ha ha)

    • The Redneck says:

      ‘possums will be extinct from global warming?

      NAPALM can’t make ‘possums extinct, and the Watermelons think a few degrees of temperature will do it?

  12. ptat says:

    Just go see the sequel to Gore’s fantasy “An Inconvenient Truth”–“2012”! It is very entertaining, for sure! No pretense to any relation to facts this time around.

  13. qbit says:

    Why cant we just use technology to solve population growth? Why are the paranoid Malthusians controlling everything?

    Climategate –

  14. qbit says:

    ..and the inception of the problem, back in 1975

  15. canary says:

    They should start declaring this form of terrorism a crime. Name it a Gore Crime; most appropriate punishment is their own medicine.

  16. Rusty Shackleford says:

    As Rush so astutely pointed out today, climateglobalwarmingchange is the new religion and unfortunately, people will adhere to it as they do to a religion. But, as he also made quite clear, religion, ours at least, doesn’t pretend to be science and thus, science shouldn’t pretend to be religion.

    This whole thing is setting us back 376 years when Galileo was told to renounce his claim that the Earth revolved around the Sun. Only this time it’s the scientists who are complicit in the Papacy-sized charade.

    I’m seriously beginning to think something’s in the water with so many charlatans, carnival barkers and grifters involved in the sham. “Algore said it, I believe it, that settles it” is no substitute for facts.

    But the legitimacy these types are handed I guess speaks volumes about the huge ignorance of the people who are more likely to buy brand A than Brand B because the sports hero told them to.

    My kingdom for a cynic…please.

  17. canary says:

    1 out of 10 is an average. Al Gore’s life-style will cost 50,000 lives out of 1 life.
    Does Gore own a dog?

  18. TheChicagoWay says:

    I think it is supposed to read only 10% of global warming scientist’s reputations will survive “global warming”.

  19. GetBackJack says:

    Behold the Everything List



  20. vilemonkey says:

    Well, Alex Jones says the government WILL kill 90% of us.


    So can we choose how we die?
