Higher CO2 price has limited benefits: Gerard Wynn

Limited reform of EU emissions trading may not achieve much in CO2 cuts as the falling competitiveness of cleaner technologies is driven more by plunging coal than carbon prices.

Quote of the Week – BONUS Krugman insanity edition

Watts Up With That?

I had no more than published the QOTW yesterday, and this one popped up. I’m of the opinion now that NYT economist and columnist Paul Krugman has gone insane, because nobody with any intact cognition would make a statement like this. Even Al Gore hasn’t gone this far, this is in nucking futz territory.

The scene is set on HBO’s Real Time Friday. Krugman is a guest, pitching his book, but at the same time pitching an idea that he’s totally serious about. It involves aliens and scientists and lies to the public on a grand scale, plus a shout out to California’s high-speed rail boondoggle. Here’s the transcript, brace yourself.

Policymakers have quietly given up trying to cut ¬carbon dioxide emissions

This is a reply to the this article:

I recently watched a video. The testimony of prominent scientists who had participated in the United States Senate subcommittee hearing; The Senators asked the scientists “what the Senate should do to deal with global warming”.

What was the response?

A bunch of academic debate and disorganized, then nothing else. The Scientists were around a table with divided opinions.

With full respect to these scientists, I’m sorry to say that policymakers of the session returned to the Senate with empty hands.

Now the question is; should the policymakers break all the economical social technological infrastructures without any strong scientific reasons?  The policymakers are waiting to receive a clear respond from the scientists for lawmaking.  Dr. Carter says the politicians have been silent for 18 months.

I read in an article that by the harvest of subterraneous water reservoirs, the amount of water vapor has increased in the atmosphere, and the sea level is rising as well. If this is true, then how can we ignore the effects of mining extensive resources of fossil fuels on the planet?

One of the scientists  at the meeting of the above testimony stated that the increase of CO2 is good, and even up to 1000 ppm carbon dioxide, and the more heat the better. It has happened in the past. And the plants are very happy. (What about the other species!)

The Senator said that; what should we as the humans do with the phenomenon of migration of species that can move to other suitable places due to climate change? We know some of the plants would disappear of the planet because the plants cannot walk away. The scientist remained unable to answer.

The Venus with 400 degrees Celsius conditions and atmospheric accumulation of carbon dioxide is a good guest house for us, if we don’t find the right answer to the policymakers.

Don’t miss the opportunities.
