Okay, this is not as bad as the 1010 mob's gleeful explosive execution of anyone expressing ambivalence toward warble gloaming or that aborted video with hundreds and hundreds of airliners zooming towards a New York with smoke curling up from the World Trade Centre, but it's still pretty nasty. "You, you evil sceptics," goes the message, "You'll get it first." Not quite sure how that works - how can the climate tell who believed and us Untermenschen who weren't convinced? Maybe it's the same kind of magic by which the climate can tell difference between the evil CO2 emitted by a power station or your breath and the benign and harmless CO2 that's puffed out from the blowholes of whales and dolphins to feed their dear friends, the trees. Or maybe the climate is relying on the warble gloaming believers to muck and help with a set of matches. I've no idea, but somehow or other we're first in line for death despite the usual exhortations to cut down on our selfish energy use because poor people in developing nations are first in line for death. Consistency? Meh.
And so at this point I want to bring up my intermittently maintained list of warble gloaming dates for your diary, because a few weeks ago I noticed an addition spotted by The Filthy Engineer, who notes that in two-thirds of the spirit of reduce, reuse, recycle this has been reused and recycled since 2007.
Runaway Global Warming promises to literally burn-up agricultural areas into dust worldwide by 2012, causing global famine, anarchy, diseases, and war on a global scale as military powers including the U.S., Russia, and China, fight for control of the Earth's remaining resources."Promises" does it? Then with less than two months 'til the start of 2012 we should see some signs of it already, shouldn't we? And "literally burn-up"? Seriously? Actual fields actually on actual fire? 4.5 billion of the world's 7 billion people dead (which still wouldn't be enough to satisfy the most extreme eco-psychos, such as this fucktroon)? As much as I'm prepared to believe that many warble gloaming catastrophists do actually believe what they claim, when someone comes out with ridiculously over the top scare claims like this I suspect that even they don't believe it. It's the old tactic suggested years ago by the late Dr Stephen Schneider of offering up scary scenarios to get attention even if they're vanishingly unlikely. I've no idea whether to blame overzealous PR of the kind Dr Schneider once suggested or journalistic license, but I suspect there's probably only one thing that's literally going to burn up.
Over 4.5 billion people could die from Global Warming related causes by 2012, as planet Earth accelarates into a greed-driven horrific catastrophe.
Being generous and giving them 'til the end of next year the updated list now looks like this:
- Probably should have happened by now, or failing that should be possible to observe a very large change in that direction - New York's West Side Highway impassable due to being underwater - Dr. James Hansen (1988/89 interview)
- Probably should have happened around 2005 ± 1 yr - British children will not know snow in their own country - Dr David Viner (Independent, Mar 2000)
- "Imminently" - loss of world's coral reefs - David Attenborough in July 2009 ('world’s tropical reefs face ‘imminent destruction’ unless CO2 levels are slashed')
- By 2010 - 50 million refugees climate refugees (UN Environment Program - currently no link for UNEP site but Watts Up With That has details and evidence of claim)
- Between 2010 and 2015, probably earlier - ice free Arctic - Louis Fortier, director of ArcticNet, speaking to Canada.com in 2007
- 2012 - fields on fire and approximately two thirds of the entire planet's population dead
- Late 2013 - ice free Arctic - Al Gore (North Pole will be ice free in five years')
- 2014 - the whole world and everything fucked up beyond repair - WWF.
- Dec 2016 - the whole world and everything all fucked up beyond repair - the Prince of Wails and the 100 months mob
- Dec 2016 - loss of 'the levers of control' for the climate - the Prince of Fails... again.
- Late 2019 - ice free Arctic - Pen Hadow (ten years to Arctic ice loss)
- Late 2019 - the whole world and everything fucked up beyond repair - UK Met Office.
- Late 2029 - loss of Great Barrier Reef - marine scientist Charlie Veron ('global warming will destroy the World Heritage site within just 20 years')
- By approximately 2040 - ice free arctic yet again - NSIDC director Mark Serreze
Warble gloaming - I refuse to use the term climate change when climate has always been changing since the planet's ancient beginnings - warble gloaming might not need you to believe in it, but warble gloaming catastrophists very much do need you and everyone else to believe. Because they're all out of a job otherwise.
