The IPCC May Be Thawing April 14, 2014 8:00 AM | Tagged as Climate Change, Global Warming, IPCC, Lomborg, Moore
WSJ April 7, 2014, Page A18: Second Climate Thoughts (editorial)
UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has finished their most recent report, a fifth update on the state of climate change, aka global warming. Even though the popular and lazy mainstream media has most likely not read it, the inner portion of the report shows a more reasonable conclusion than any previous editions. After the real guts of the report are completed, ideologues write a summary for policy makers. This 28-page tome is still based on alarmism, not the more cautious stance of the actual data-based body of the report. This movement toward a more balanced, less alarmist, more factual report is noteworthy.
The 28-page fiction is also enlightening. It shows the IPCC is really interested in income redistribution, not so much climate change. The Biz Bucks Guy has been vindicated, again. Climate Change as a movement is more about socialism, than environmentalism. The environmental movement was taken over three decades ago by leftists with political, not environmental goals. This is why such honest and dedicated environmentalists, such as Bjorn Lomborg and Patrick Moore, have left the mainstream environmental movement.
To quote the WSJ editors, “The best environmental policy is economic growth.” The wealth of a nation precedes robust safety standards and sensible environmental regulations. The IPCC is now supporting politically favored) misallocation of resources (insert cronyism) that makes us all poorer.
[Although opinion is included, The Biz Bucks Blog is primarily written to former students of Biz Bucks training courses to encourage their daily reading of the three opinion pages of the WSJ. This refreshes principles of Biz Bucks courses and improves business acumen on topics not discussed in Biz Bucks training.]
