UN report: Humans doomed planet but we can probably salvage it

A new report warning that the Earth has undergone permanent damage because of mankind is being criticized as hysteria timed for a UN climate change conference. 

UN report: Humans doomed planet but we can probably salvage it

A new United Nations report is being described as a code red alert for humanity, and a warning that Earth’s time has run out, but a watchdog group says don’t be fooled by the same song-and-dance routine.

"This is the same-old, shame-old that's been going on since 1988," Marc Morano of Climate Depot says of the report just released by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

The report, released this week, warns of a cataclysmic future if the Earth’s temperature rises more than 1.5 degrees Celsius above what it calls pre-industrial levels. 

According to an equally alarming summary by the BBC, the oceans will keep rising, and polar glaciers will continue to melt, and a climate scientist who co-authored the report told the BBC “there’s no going back” to a time when humans were not ruining the planet.

"I don't really think there is any evidence for panic about the warming that's going on," counters author Steve Milloy, founder of JunkScience.com and a skeptic that mankind is warming the planet.

Milloy calls the warming trend “slight” and says mankind claims to know – but does not know – why the earth is currently in a warming phase.

Earth is said to be approximately 4.5 billion years old, at least according to scientists who dismiss the Genesis account of creation, but climate scientists claim mankind has ruined the planet --- now permanently --- since the Industrial Revolution began in the 1700s with inventions such as the steam engine and the cotton mill. 

So mankind destroyed Earth, the climate-changing theory says, in a little over three centuries out of 4.5 billion years. 

Mirroring Milloy’s observation of a warming and cooling planet, the website Climate.gov recognizes that the Earth has experienced cold periods and warm periods that occur in 100,000-year cycles. The cycles happen when the global temperature warms or cools between 3 degrees to 8 degrees Celsius, the website states. 

The planet’s last Ice Age ended 20,000 years ago, Climate.gov says, which is not too long ago in a span of 4.5 billion years.  

So why the UN report? Because it is being released before major world leaders meet in Scotland in November to discuss the issue, Milloy says.

That meeting in three months is described by the BBC as a “key climate summit” that has suddenly become more important thanks to the report’s dire warning.

“This is just UN panic ahead of the upcoming climate summit,” Milloy complains, “and, of course, no doubt intended to play into U.S. politics because, right now, we have the infrastructure bill and the stimulus bill that Biden wants passed, which has a lot of climate stuff."

"This is essentially the belief that unless we submit to a collectivized future,” Morano says, “where government overlords will control our energy, our appliances, our vehicles, our travel, and every aspect of our economic freedoms, we will face a catastrophe.”
