Time Magazine gets the prize for the most alarmist article on global warming yet. The language makes me wonder if we live on the same planet.
A Last Warning on Global Warming Saturday, Nov. 17, 2007 By BRYAN WALSH
I'm glad I wasn't sipping coffee when I read the opening sentence --
"The language of science, like that of the United Nations, is by nature cautious and measured."
Really? Since when?
"The report, a synthesis for politicians culled from three other IPCC panels... read like what it is: a final warning to humanity."
Well, I'm glad to hear it's our final warning.
But notice this: the report is not based on any new evidence. It is culled from three other panels. So why is this report, developed for politicians, being issued now? Read on.
"The panel reported that the world would have to reverse the rapid growth of greenhouse gases by 2015...". "That puts the pressure on the world's leaders.... They'll have their last, best chance next month, when energy ministers from around the world travel to Bali, Indonesia, for the annual meeting of the U.N.'s Framework on Climate Convention."
There's your answer. The report serves a political purpose. To put pressure on politicians; to soften resistance to the global warming ideological agenda.
"If they fail, then the IPCC has already written our future. We'll find out in Bali."
Instead of the IPCC's apocalyptic vision of our future, you might want to read the Apocalypse, the book of Revelation. Humanity has more to worry about than C02 emissions.
It's our final warning (and promise).
And that's the way the Bali Ball bounces.
