100 months to save the world from global warming!

BBC NEWS | Science/Nature | '100 months to save the planet'

According to the Green New Deal Group, humanity only has 100 months to prevent dangerous global warming. ...

Its members include former Friends of the Earth UK director Tony Juniper, Green MEP Caroline Lucas and Andrew Simms, policy director of the New Economics Foundation (nef).

In an article for the BBC News website's Green Room series...

The group's recommendations include:

  • massive investment in renewable energy and wider transformation in the UK
  • the creation of thousands of new "green collar" jobs
  • making low-cost capital available to fund the UK's green economic shift
  • building a new alliance between environmentalists, industry, agriculture and unions

The group says the plans will be good for the environment and our pockets....

With such combined brain power you could barely get an energy saving bulb to flicker on; there is nowhere to start to point out how muddled and wrong they are, it is such a shapeless shambles of good intentions devoid of any intelligence.

Good intentions? Only if you regard good intentions as the aim of returning society to the Stone Age (other than the Greenie Ɯberclass themselves, they will of course need and deserve to retain all modern comforts).

Hi. I thought this was a busy time of year on the farm. I'm surrounded by blatting lambs being fattened up and a 24/7 roar of combined harvesters. How you find the energy to keep us informed speaks volumes for your stamina. If one reads carefully the weasel words of "green New Deal" one finds that, below the surface of calm words of academic reason hides the pike of the far left.
"massive investment in renewable energy and wider transformation in the UK" = Nationalisation of power generation.
"the creation of thousands of new "green collar" jobs"= More Statist non-jobs to hide real unemployment caused by "Green-taxing", companies out of the Country.
"making low-cost capital available to fund the UK's green economic shift"= Wasting yet more billions of tax payers money on whimsical fantasies and Leftist Icons (sorry, tautology there).
"building a new alliance between environmentalists, industry, agriculture and unions" = full collectivisation of the country's means of production against the "threat" of Man-Made Global Warming"
Yes the world has been getting warmer. Palaeological studies have found evidence that the world has been much warmer in the past and with higher levels of Methane and CO2 than today. Astronomists have found evidence that Mars and Jupiter are warming up. I am not clear how this is due to MMGW, but no doubt NEF will produce a computer model which, "proves", the complicity of humanity and we will in time get Intra-Solar System Man-Made Global Warming. (ISSMMGW). There are other areas of climate change when alarmist computer models fail the cold daylight test of observed data. The Polar Bear population is in fact increasing overall thoughout it's range. The "J" curve is pure, unscientific hogwash. The continental Antarctic is getting colder. Finally, the Earths global temperature has been static/declining for since 2000. The alarmists are predicting a continuation of global warming after 2015. (Fingers crossed, doubtless)
In sum, "100 months to save the planet" is just another piece of alarmist snake-oil whose chief aim is to prolong the careers of some distinctly dodgy environmentalists by a politically motivated media company, and should be screened with a public health warning. I'm now off to my allotment to exhort my crops to grow more quickly and use up all those nasty greenhouse gases. Cultivating vegetables on the lawn is probably the most effective action the NEF could take to cutting greenhouse gas.


I was most interested to read your blog. 20 years ago I had a book published on different economic concepts to point the way to a sustainable world economy. Someone who liked the book recently contacted me to suggest that I update and re-publish it as a blog. She set up the blog and is posting the book in sections as I write and send it to her.

I don't know if this went in so I am doing it again.

You can bet the assorted greenies will make shedloads of money from the scam. Should they not be charged with fraud? About 40 years without the option should do it.

I take the cynical view that the call for urgency is because this assorted bunch of anti-capitalist ex-trots want to comprehensively fuck the economies of the "capitalist world" before the truth that AGW is a complete crock is demonstrated by the world getting cooler.
