Obama Warns Mark Zuckerberg: Planet Will Be Under Water if World Doesn’t Change, by Charles Spiering.
President Barack Obama joined Mark Zuckerberg on Facebook Live to talk about entrepreneurship, but he also warned that as more economies grew around the world, their energy needs would destroy the planet as a result of climate change.
“There are entire continents, sub-Saharan Africa or the Indian sub-continent where people are developing rapidly, they’re getting connected,” he said. “They’re going to need electricity, they’re going to need energy, but if they duplicate the ways that we produce energy here, or have in the past, then the entire planet is under water.”
Obama urged the world to use social media to work together to solve climate change before it was too late.
Relax Obama. Climate change has already been solved. There were mistakes in the basic model used to estimate sensitivity to carbon dioxide, which dates back to 1896. One of the two main feedbacks was omitted — when it is included we find that the IPCC overestimated sensitivity to carbon dioxide by a factor of 5 to 10. In fact the Sun caused most of the global warming, and global cooling is going to start from about 2017. Somebody tell him.
