excerpt:

 

"... scientists have been documenting a mysterious rise in levels of methane in the atmosphere. And itâââہ¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’¢Ã¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…¾Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¢s getting worse:

Earlier this year, data from the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration showed that the rate of the increase

surged by 50% in the 2013-2018 period compared with the preceding five years"

........ as signs of global warming continue to mount, a push is on to find ways to draw CO2 from the atmosphere.

 

"It's now abundantly clear from the IPCC 1.5C special report that if we're going to restrict warming to 2 degrees or less, then mitigation of the reduction of emissions on its own is not enough," said Philip Boyd, professor of marine biogeochemistry at the University of Tasmania.

 

"We have to go beyond that and we now have to intervene in the climate."

What a load of garbage.

Remove enough C02 and we all die!!

Plants need C02 to thrive. We are already at historically low levels of C02 and these idiots want us to commit to lowering it even more.

Should be put into a home for the criminally insane as should anybody who believes this garbage.

Firms ignoring climate crisis will go bankrupt, says Mark Carney

Bank of England governor warns of financial collapse linked to climate emergency

 

Top asset managers oversee $300bn fossil fuel investments

Why are asset managers investing in fossil fuel companies?

 

Companies and industries that are not moving towards zero-carbon emissions will be punished by investors and go bankrupt, the governor of the Bank of England has warned.

 

Mark Carney also told the Guardian it was possible that the global transition needed to tackle the climate crisis could result in an abrupt financial collapse. He said the longer action to reverse emissions was delayed, the more the risk of collapse would grow.

 

Carney has led efforts to address the dangers global heating poses to the financial sector, from increasing extreme weather disasters to a potential fall in asset values such as fossil fuel company valuations as government regulations bite. The Guardian revealed last week that just 20 fossil fuel companies have produced coal, oil and gas linked to more than a third of all emissions in the modern era.

 

The Bank of England has said up to $20tn (Ãâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚£16tn) of assets could be wiped out if the climate emergency is not addressed effectively. But Carney also said great fortunes could be made by those working to end greenhouse gas emissions with a big potential upside for the UK economy in particular.

 

US coal companies had already lost 90% of their value, he noted, but banks were also at risk. âââہ¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’…âہ“Just like in any other major structural change, those banks overexposed to the sunset sectors will suffer accordingly,âââہ¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¬ÃƒÆ’‚ he told the Guardian.

Seems to me this climate change madness has a lot in common with the old Dutch Tulip fever fisco back in the 1700s.

Lots of people pontificating about things they know nothing about and driving everybody into a pointless frenzy.

 

That ended badly as I am sure will this climate change madness.

Aren't the climate emergency proponents just so tricky ........ when one set of "alarming figures" fail to materialise, they just conjure up another drama ....

 

Global surface temperatures are not sufficient to measure climate change, which should instead be tracked by a scorecard of population growth, meat consumption, forest loss and the use of air transport, a new declaration by Ãâہ¡ÃƒÆ’‚­scientists says.

 

And the so-called "Greens" will no doubt lap it up fervently.

 

Cheers ( for Doomsday)
