The UN says that global warming is melting the polar ice caps and threatens to swamp coastal regions

Climate change fight affordable, cut emissions to zero by 2100-UN
Without extra efforts to cut emissions, “warming by the end of the 21st century will bring high risks of severe, widespread, and irreversible impacts globally,” the IPCC said.
“Irreversible” could mean, for instance, a runaway melt of Greenland’s vast ice sheets that could swamp coastal regions

Scientists said almost exactly the same thing in 1952, in almost exactly the same words.
POLAR ICE THAW INCREASING GLACIERS SAID TO BE MELTING
CLEVELAND, Feb. 16 (A.A.P.) Dr. William S. Carlson, an Arctic expert, said to-night that the Polar icecaps were melting at an astonishing and unexplained rate and were threatening to swamp seaports by raising the ocean levels.

Sans the CO2 component.
Good thing we now have someone to blame, saves all that head-scratching about how the climate really works.

Never change the message just push it forward a few decades — hopping it will eventually happen. Besides 86 years from now these guys will all be long gone and hopefully long forgotten!

Makes one curious as to what “affordable” means; does that mean we can “afford” to have billions die due to lack of access to inexpensive power?
The behaviour of the UN (not to mention many other alarmists) is close enough to Harold Camping and his ilk (changing their stories and dates of “doom” on whims); they should be treated equally as the laughing stocks of humanity.
does that mean we can “afford” to have billions die
I think so. For starters, everyone who “believes” in AGW would be an “affordable” loss. By extension, everyone who votes Democrat (or similar “progressive” parties) would also be an affordable loss. And so on…
When the left says”affordable”, they mean that someone else pays the price.
… and that price is paid daily with real lives lost among the poor of this planet who would be coming out of the Stone Age were it not for these Progressive monsters in the UN and governments around the world.
On the main news bulletin today here in Perth, they quoted Pachauri as saying that the world needs to cut CO2 emissions to ZERO.
WHAT A MORON!
From what I understand ABC is quoting the BBC as the source of that outlandish comment — although most certainly it is the dumb sort of thing the soft porn peddling railway engineer, Pachauri, would say.
…and 30 years before that:
We are now, it is believed, slowly approaching another warm epoch, when, if it becomes universal, affecting both hemispheres together, the ice will again melt, and the sea rise to its ancient level, submerging an enormous portion of what is now dry and thickly populated land. According to another view the melting of the ice and rise of the sea may occur comparatively suddenly instead of being a very gradual process spread over many centuries.”
Am amazed CNN let John Coleman on the air. http://ketchemandfleezem.wordpress.com/2014/11/03/weather-channel-founder-on-cnn/
Help tell the Australian ABC Television. Vote in the poll.
“Is the InterGovernmental Panel on Climate Change right that, on current fossil use ‘projectories’, we are heading for a global warming of four or five degrees by century’s end?”
Ooops I mean radio but tell them anyway.
It reminds me of soap operas, recycle the same old storyline.
Unlike the IPCC at least the soaps have some grounding in scientific reality

This global warming thing is a huge propaganda ploy to get consent from the masses by manipulating their thinking and conditioning!
Good grief, Charlie Brown.
If there was any thinking involved, the argument would have been settled years ago.
