'First, the non-climatic effects of carbon dioxide are dominant over the climatic effects and are overwhelmingly beneficial. Second, the climatic effects observed in the real world are much less damaging than the effects predicted by the climate models, and have also been frequently beneficial.'

Teacher alert: eco-blackshirts promote the killing of non-conforming adults and children

Is this where CO2-alarmism leads?


See: http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/blog/2010/sep/30/10-10-no-pressure-film

The luvvies in and behind this despicable film are so convinced of the dangers of CO2 in the atmosphere that they wish to kill those who disagree with them, including children. The film ends with gore from an explosion sliding down the screen.  The film begins with a schoolteacher calmly blowing up two pupils in her class who decline to give in to her political requests , leaving blood over all the others in the classroom.

Now this is at a time when there is not a single piece of observational evidence that anything at all unusual is happening to climate.  The increase in a trace gas is so small that it remains a trace gas.  The role of it in the climate system is far from 'settled', with deeply qualified scientists estimating its effect ranging from a small cooling, through negligible to a modest warming.  A handful of scientists and programmers have created computer models of climate which include an additional hypothesis of postive feedback involving water vapour.  Then and only then do we get more scary scenarios of warming.  We also see in the model outputs a remarkable and pronounced hotter zone in the upper troposphere - one that has not been observed.  Ordinarily, the scientific method would say - 'model prediction not confirmed by observation, model not good enough'.  Some models also predict a hot spot over Antarctica - one that should be clearly detectable by now, but it is not there.  None of the models predicted the break in the warming since around 1998 to the present day.  None of the models include the fact that many weather station records show no overall warming at all in the past century.  The models are not good.  They are not fit for prediction. Yet there is nothing else that deserves an alarmed reaction.  Nothing.  The luvvies want to kill and destroy based on the output of computer models of demonstrably poor quality, in a field where there are substantially different theories about the impact of CO2 on climate.  Only those theories which predict a modest to negligible impact have been supported by observations of the real atmosphere.

Hat tip:

Note added 8 Nov 2011.  I regret the term 'eco-blackshirts' in the title.  Although I think such people could readily be recruited, the filmakers themselves did not actually apply real violence to those they deem to be so evil that they, or their children, must be blown up by terrorists acting for the climate cause.  They merely promoted such violence.

Note added 3 Dec 2011.  Prof Jones of UEA, the notorious climate schemer as revealed by CG1 and CG2, put his department into the 10:10 campaign less than a year before the ugly video was released:
'I am a lot more free to push my environmental interests without ongoing critique of my motives and supposed misguidedness - I've signed my department up to 10:10 campaign and have a taskforce of staff and students involved in it...' (29 October 2009, source: http://di2.nu/foia/foia2011/mail/1625.txt)
I wonder if they are still part of it?

Note added 28 April 2012:  Violent imagery used by out-of-control EPA bureaucrat: cruxifixion.

 "The Romans used to conquer little villages in the Mediterranean. They'd go into a little Turkish town somewhere, they'd find the first five guys they saw and they would crucify them. And then you know that town was really easy to manage for the next few years."

'A recently surfaced video of an EPA official's rant confirms what many of us already knew about the Obama Administration: they imagine themselves to be the rulers of conquered territories populated by restless barbarians who must be subjugated at any cost, complete with indiscriminate and severe exemplary punishments.'

Note added 17 April 2014.   The close relationship of eco-fanaticism with National Socialism in Hitler's Germany is illustrated by this quotation: '"We recognize that separating humanity from nature, from the whole of life, leads to humankind’s own destruction and to the death of nations. Only through a re-integration of humanity into the whole of nature can our people be made stronger. That is the fundamental point of the biological tasks of our age. Humankind alone is no longer the focus of thought, but rather life as a whole . . . This striving toward connectedness with the totality of life, with nature itself, a nature into which we are born, this is the deepest meaning and the true essence of National Socialist thought."
