UN Looks In Crystal Ball, Creates Weather Forecasts For 2015
Of course, these are all about doomsaying regarding “climate change”
(CNS News) In a fresh effort to generate fervor for a far-reaching new global climate agreement, a U.N. agency is releasing videos featuring “imaginary but realistic” weather reports set in 2050, to illustrate the type of extreme conditions it predicts we will face by mid-century.
But the first video in the series of 15 to be rolled out over the coming weeks shows some temperatures for 2050 considerably in excess of those projected in the latest major U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report (which has itself been dubbed “too alarmist” by some critics.)
The imaginary 2050 weather forecasts have been submitted by actual television weather presenters from around the world at the invitation of the U.N. World Meteorological Organization (WMO).
Which is awesome, considering that a 10 day forecast, heck, a 5 day forecast, is a tricky thing. There’s often huge difficulty in predicting what a tropical system will do just 24-48 hours out. But, they know what will happen almost 40 years from now. The video even shows Copenhagen (which saw the Gore Effect in play during the IPCC conference there a few years ago) at 98.6F, despite the highest temperature recorded in Copenhagen being 87.8F.
Similarly, the WMO video features a weather map showing a temperature in central Bulgaria of 50°C (122° F) in 2050. Central Bulgaria’s average maximum temperature ranges from 6°C (42.8°F) in January to 31°C (87.8°F ) in July, and the highest temperature recorded in Bulgaria, in data going back to 1850, was 45.2°C (113.4°F), in 1916.
“The weather reports are potential scenarios compatible with the most up-to-date climate science documented by the recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Fifth Assessment Report,” WMO secretary-general Michel Jarraud said in a statement accompanying the launch of the first video.
“They paint a compelling picture of what life could be like on a warmer planet,” he said. “Climate change is already leading to more extreme weather such as intense heat and rain. The ‘abnormal’ risks becoming the norm. We need to act now.”
Except for that pesky 18 year pause which pretty much invalidated warmist prognostication and computer models.
The videos will be released one at a time, prior to the climate summit in NYC, starting on September 22nd, when tons of Warmists will take fossil fueled trips by plane and auto to complain about fossil fuels.
