Desmond Tutu Grants The World Another 15 Year Reprieve!

Desmond Tutu The Guardian, Thursday 10 April 2014

We need an apartheid-style boycott to save the planet We must stop climate change. And we can, if we use the tactics that worked in South Africa against the worst carbon emitters

This week in Berlin, scientists and public representatives have been weighing up radical options for curbing emissions contained in the third report of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The bottom line is that we have 15 years to take the necessary steps. The horse may not have bolted, but it’s well on its way through the stable door.

This is quite a relief, because James Hansen had previously given us only until 2012.

Hansen’s 2012 number was in itself a major reprieve from the UN’s original deadline of 2000

And Paul Ehrlich said we would all be dead by 1980

“I’m scared,” the lean, intense scientist (Paul Ehrlich) told an interviewer. “I have a teenage daughter whom I love very much. I know a lot of young people, and their world is being destroyed – my world is being destroyed. I’m 37, and I’d like to live to be 67 in a reasonably pleasant world, not die in some kind of holocaust in the next decade.”


We should feel very blessed that the bishop has granted us an extra 50 years beyond Ehrlich’s original deadline.

    I thought Tutu was all busy and such going after Israel for whatever. Amazing he has time to save the world from trace CO2. No accounting for the ability of Progressives to be mindless, clueless, brainless morons.

    Then again, there is Al Sharpton.

  2. Psalmon says:

    I’m not going to heat my home or drive my car or fly anywhere. That will show them. Can’t wait for this boycott.

  3. Andy Oz says:

    Possibly one of the silliest articles ever to be published on CAGW in the NZ Herald today. Is it any wonder that most people realise this is a load of crap.
    Basically, the earths atmosphere will turn into something resembling Jupiter’s by the end of the century. Never ending cyclones, floods, droughts, heatwaves, tornadoes etc.

    “Victoria University Associate Professor of Geography, Environment and Earth Sciences James Renwick said the report painted a very clear picture of what the future could hold for humanity if it failed to get on top of greenhouse gas emissions.

    He said one of the biggest issues that New Zealand faced was sea level rise and its associated hazards.

    “Every 10cm of rise triples the risk of a given inundation event, and we are expecting something like a metre of rise this century. That would make today’s 1-in-100 year event a weekly occurrence by 2100.”

    Victoria University staff are channelling Marshall Applewhite, who already did the world a favour.

    • Interesting allusion to Jupiter, but it is the intellectual climate that has become like that giant, roiling, and ever-divided atmosphere… Hmmm…perhaps we could model the stupidity, delusion, and tyrannical impulses with fluid dynamics (including turbulence)…a new frontier for a post-normal Navier-Stokes theory.

  4. R. Shearer says:

    Does anyone really know what carbon is? Does anyone really care about carbon? If so, I can’t imagine why. We’ve all got time enough to cry.

  5. Andy Oz says:

    UN IPCC alarmists want the UK to spend £58 billion each year to stop deadly globull worming. There is no part of that idea that is sane. They have completely lost their marbles. “Make the lie so big, people will believe it” – Hitler (paraphrased)

  6. tom0mason says:

    And all the navies, sailors, fishermen, and seashore dwellers the world over have noticed the rapid sea rise?

    Thank you, Steven, for your humorous review of the world’s insanity.

    There is encouraging news. Yu and Luo [1] confirmed the 1997 finding [2] by Svensmark and Friis-Christensen: “Cosmic rays” induce condensation of atmospheric water vapor into clouds that alter Earth’s climate.

    Since the “cosmic ray” flux on Earth varies inversely with solar activity:
    _ a.) The “cosmic ray” flux on Earth is higher during the solar minimum
    _ b.) The “cosmic ray” flux on Earth is lower during the solar maximum

    Scientists may discover that some cosmic rays come from the Sun’s core:

    2. Henrik Svensmark and Eigil Friis-Christensen, “Variation of cosmic ray flux and global cloud coverage—a missing link in solar-climate relationships, Journal of Atmospheric and Solar-Terrestrial Physics 59, 1225–1232 (July 1997):

  8. Dave N says:

    Their inability to recognise how stupid they look is beyond comical.

  9. John F. Hultquist says:

    Desmond Tutu is interested in the money expected from the guilty developed world. He knows as much as a stump regarding Earth’s climate. At least he can be honest about that. Hansen and Ehrlich haven’t been in touch with reality for a long time. Neither has been right about anything for years, maybe forever. They just (continue to) make stuff up.

    I wonder what Miss Ehrlich (teenager in 1971) thinks of her doom and gloom daddy who did not die some years ago as he expected? He is now about 80 and said: “I’d like to live to be 67 in a reasonably pleasant world, . . .”
    Brings tears to my eyes!

  10. Brian G Valentine says:

    People carrying grudges for not being recognized as important (and with no ability to gain recognition by doing anything meaningful) will go to extremes to gain affirmation from someone – no matter how meaningless or negative such recognition might be (witness the show-off delinquent junior high schooler).

    The only thing that surprises me to this point is, there are so many of them, and all coming from the Left

  11. John M says:

    This is probably the best post ever! 43 years of continuous drumbeat of doomsday predictions.

    • Brian G Valentine says:

      The phenomenon has been around a lot longer than that, except it used to come from religious zealotry. Religions have been swapped, and that’s about the only difference.

    • Andy Oz says:

      Doomsday was indeed caused by your SUV.
      I live in a post apocalyptic parallel universe where CO2 has no effect on Global Temperature or anything else for that matter. And we are troll free.

    • Gail Combs says:

      After 43 years of continuous scare mongering adrenal exhaustion has set in among the population. That is why in a recent MSNBC poll (12K responses) 82% said climate change would not impact them.

      The bill for the Obummercare debacle is hitting the US population in the wallet about now.

      As I recall the definition of a conservative is a liberal who got mugged. Obummercare is mugging a lot of starry eyed libs. In the UK fuel poverty is mugging a lot of libs.

      From the point of view of Libs it is YOU, not them that has to pay the price because they have not ‘sinned’. When “Other peoples money’ starts coming out of their pockets they become very unhappy.

        After 43 years of continuous scare mongering adrenal exhaustion has set in among the population.

        The very reason they did away with the color code warning system. If you are always at Yellow or orange, you just start ignoring it.

      • Andy DC says:

        You are right! After 43 years of crying wolf, the wolf is still no closer to the door than he was in 1930 People have become numbed to the same old mindless scare tactics.

  12. You have to love the deluded James Hansen. While Kevin Trenberth, Michael Mann and Thomas Stocker wisely “Lawyer Up”, Hansen leads with his chin:

    Click to access Catling.pdf

    Check out slide 35 showing 4.5 Kelvin per doubling and 16 Kelvin/halving. Absurd? Way beyond that but it has a crazy kind of logic. On one hand Hansen affirms the Arrhenius hypothesis of 4.5 K/doubling of [CO2] and on the other hand he affirms exactly the right “Sensitivity Constant” to explain the last seven glaciations in terms of [CO2].

    • Brian G Valentine says:

      His mentor, Carl “The Charlatan” Sagan was obviously hopped up on pain pills and tranquilizers, Jimmy must have picked up the habit

    • Gail Combs says:

      Activism is ‘cute’ in a terribly ernst fifteen or sixteen year old girl, it is …. distasteful in a 73 year old codger.
      “If you are young and not liberal, then you have no heart; but if you are old and not conservative, then you have no brain,” – Disraeli? or Churchill?

      Looks like Hansen has no brain.

      • Brian G Valentine says:

        He has nothing but a fawning collection of maybe sixty or seventy idiotic sycophants, Good God am I glad I have nothing of the sort

  13. W*T H*L*B*T says:

    Reblogged this on Rnm101's Blog and commented:
    What an utter cockwomble.

  14. philjourdan says:

    Does that make Desmond Tutu less insane than Hansen?

  15. John F. Hultquist says:

    Phil asks: “Does that make Desmond Tutu less insane than Hansen?”

    In Tutu’s view he represents poor souls in failed countries. He wants other people’s money to relieve his despair over his inability to affect these failures. Much of the money will not help those in need. It will end up in luxury goods and bank accounts of the dear leaders and friends and family members. He understands this part but the argument is that maybe half the money will help those in need, and half of 60 billion is still a lot of money.
    He is sane but deluded by the “experts” mentioned in the post.

  16. Streetcred says:

    Alas, poor Desmond! I knew him once. A fellow of infinite fortitude; Now just a useless tool.

  17. Deserttrek says:

    desmond … a bigot and hate monger of the highest order. another despot who wants to control us via lies and obfuscation.

  18. rw says:

    AGW certainly is a powerful elixir. Who in their wildest imaginings could have envisaged Desmond Tutu as an advocate for apartheid? We really do live in interesting times.
