“It’s now or never” warned Elvis and the IPCC

Monday blog

As most of you will know, the ludicrous IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) issued its latest report last week warning that this really really really was our absolute last chance to stop a climate catastrophe:

Maybe Elvis actually is alive and has joined the IPCC?

I guess the IPCC and all the climate catastrophist mainstream media hope that most people have short memories and so have forgotten the umpteen times we heard exactly the same warnings from the climate catastrophist numpties from the 1920s to 1950s:

‘North Pole melting. Many glaciers vanished,’ Daily Mercury 7 April 1923

‘Will melting icebergs engulf the world?’ Sunday Journal and Star 13 April 1931

Hottest summer in 4,000 years,’ New York Times 2 July 1931

World heating up. Ice dissolving at Poles. Sea will rise 40 feet,’ Cairns Post 3 February 1934

‘Greenland’s glaciers melting, says scientist,’ Harrisburg Sunday Courier 17 December 1939

Ice in Arctic melting rapidly,’ Hartford Courant Magazine 13 October 1940

‘Glaciers icebergs melt as the world gets warmer,’ The Herald Saturday Magazine 29 September 1951

And then again for at least the last 30 years:

‘A senior environmental official at the United Nations, Noel Brown, says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the earth by rising sea levels if global warming is not reversed by the year 2000,’ Mercury News 30 June 1989

‘Nuclear conflict, mega-droughts, famine and widespread rioting will spread across the world …. deaths from war and famine run into the millions, until the planet’s population is reduced by such an extent the Earth can cope,’ Observer 11 November 2004

‘Climate change study predicts refugees fleeing into Antarctica,’ Daily Telegraph 13 October 2008

‘Barack Obama has only four years to save the world. That is the stark assessment of NASA scientist and leading climate expert Jim Hansen,’ Guardian 18 January 2009

‘The best scientific projections indicate that we have very little time left – indeed less than 100 months – in which to alter our behaviour drastically,’ The UK Prince of Wales 26 May 2009

‘Four years to save the Earth: 2020 is the deadline to avert climate catastrophe, experts claim,’ Daily Mail 29 June 2017

‘The planet is getting warmer in catastrophic ways. And fear may be the only thing that saves us,’ New York Times February 2019

‘Climate change is the number one issue facing humanity. And it’s the number one issue for me. Unchecked it’s actually going to bake this planet,’ President Joe Biden 21 March 2021

Oh, and here’s Elvis (before he joined the IPCC?):

    Your trouble is that you have a Suspicious Mind and you don’t believe the experts.

    You left out the hilarious reports from the 1970s, when Global Cooling was the fear-factor.
    Surely there cannot be many people left in the entire world who still believe this nonsense? (But then, they watch TV, so…)

    Spot on David but I take exception to you ridiculing Prince Charles who will one day in the next fifty years, become our King. At the time, Charles was being “advised” by no less trhan Sir Jimmy Saville, and although the MSM never tired of telling us about all the good work Jimmy did while he graced us with his prescence, I think it perfectly understandable if Prince Charles may have been a tiny bit misled by Jimmy regarding climate change, but it is interesting to note that Charles must havwe passed on many of Jimmy’s other ideas to his wee brother Prince Andrew.

    Being more serious about this, I watched a video yesterday that I downloaded a while ago of an interview with Prof Norman Fenton about his risk analysis of covid deaths. He was asked whether his work was peer reviewed, and he answered that it always used to be, but since he started investigating covid/vaccine deaths and his conclusions go against the accepted narrative he has found it impossible to get his work peer reviewed, so he publishes on websites that accept it.

    This is exactly your experience in getting your recent climate crisis book published, which other “climate deniers” also experience. Joe Postma has talked about one of his papers being rejected and he discussed the ridiculous reasons that were put forward.

    We are looking at the corruption of evidence-based science and not only that the failure of the majority to understand that we must have evidence on which to base decisions, otherwise we will end up with the NHS going back to treating with leaches, or even worse giving us dangerous vaccines.

    Further reading has turned up word to describe this- Apophenia: the tendency to identify meaningful patterns where none truly exist.
