The World Is Ending... Tomorrow

Here is something to brighten up your day. Assuming that you still have a sense of humor, that is. It’s a report on the climate emergency or is it the climate catastrophe. The report was written in 2004. It was prepared for the Pentagon, of all groups.

It concluded that the world would end by the year, get this, 2020. It offered all manner of absurd prophecies… the kind that can now be tested against reality. It pretended that they were all scientific fact. Where is Nostradamus when we need him?

To call this science is a disgrace. The notion that we still take these hysterically alarmist prophecies seriously is a bad sign indeed.

Anyway, Larry Kummer offers some excerpts:

From The Guardian on 21 Febuary 2004.

“Secret report warns of rioting and nuclear war. Britain will be ‘Siberian’ in less than 20 years. Threat to the world is greater than terrorism.”

“Climate change over the next 20 years could result in a global catastrophe costing millions of lives in wars and natural disasters. A secret report, suppressed by US defence chiefs and obtained by The Observer, warns that major European cities will be sunk beneath rising seas as Britain is plunged into a ‘Siberian’ climate by 2020. Nuclear conflict, mega-droughts, famine and widespread rioting will erupt across the world. …Randall added that it was already possibly too late to prevent a disaster happening. ‘We don’t know exactly where we are in the process. It could start tomorrow and we would not know for another five years,’ he said. …”

Apparently, Great Britain does not have a Siberian climate. It has Boris Johnson.

Kummer continues:

The report explores how such an abrupt climate change scenario could potentially de-stabilize the geo-political environment, leading to skirmishes, battles, and even war due to resource constraints such as:

  • Food shortages due to decreases in net global agricultural production.

  • Decreased availability and quality of fresh water in key regions due to shifted precipitation patters, causing more frequent floods and droughts.

  •  Disrupted access to energy supplies due to extensive sea ice and storminess.

And now, check out the time line. You thought that the threat of terrorism was bad. Here are some more prophecies, year by year:

By 2005 the climatic impact of the shift is felt more intensely in certain regions around the world. More severe storms and typhoons bring about higher storm surges and floods in low-lying islands such as Tarawa and Tuvalu (near New Zealand).

In 2007, a particularly severe storm causes the ocean to break through levees in the Netherlands making a few key coastal cities such as The Hague unlivable. Failures of the delta island levees in the Sacramento River region in the Central Valley of California creates an inland sea and disrupts the aqueduct system transporting water from northern to southern California because salt water can no longer be kept out of the area during the dry season.

After roughly 60 years of slow freshening, the thermohaline collapse begins in 2010, disrupting the temperate climate of Europe, which is made possible by the warm flows of the Gulf Stream (the North Atlantic arm of the global thermohaline conveyor). 

Ocean circulation patterns change, bringing less warm water north and causing an immediate shift in the weather in Northern Europe and eastern North America.   {It lists many many more bad things that happen.}

I am not going to list it all. I do recommend that you check out the rest of Kummer’s report. Either for light reading or to mock the complete stupidity of those who put together the research. Only a Swedish truant would believe such swill.

If it's in The Grauniad, why should I believe even a milli-micro-skosh of any word, let alone all the words? And "Climate CHANGE!!!!!!111111!!!!!!"? It's always changing, but

" By 2005 the climatic impact of the shift is felt more intensely in certain regions around the world. More severe storms and typhoons bring about higher storm surges and floods in low-lying islands such as Tarawa and Tuvalu (near New Zealand)." Only at CNN and the other Alphabets, the NYT, and the WaPoo.

OH! And y'all have a nice day, hear?

I'm torn between denouncing your post with a firm "The Science is settled!" or pointing out that only the efforts of his holy greeness B. Obama made the sea levels stop rising. In either case, consider yourself admonished.

This will not make the slightest dent in the stubborn faith of the climate death cult.

IAC, that's what they claim. I doubt it 3000%.
