#10 – Why I’m lukewarm to climate change…

Reason #10- Letting the perps walk

=========

I’m neither a denier nor a zealot …  so, according to British writer (& phrase-coiner) Matt Ridley, I’m a “lukewarmer”.

In a prior posts, I covered: (1) Unsettling science (2) Expired doomsday predictions (3) The “97% of scientists” baloney  (4) Dinking with the data  (5) Temperature readings – plus or minus (6) What’s the earth’s temperature? (7) The Climategate Emails (8) Low on American’s worry list and (9) Seen a Volt recently?

Let’s move on…

Reason #10 – Letting the perps walk

This one is pretty straightforward …

China has reached record-breaking levels of air pollution that the monitoring equipment can no longer keep track.

Unfortunately, air pollution isn’t just affecting China. Greenpeace states that India is now the world’s worst when it comes to air pollution.

The average India citizen is exposed to 5x as much air pollution as the average Chinese citizen. Source

Ouch!

And, the revered Paris Accords won’t make things better any time soon…

=========

Despite being the worst polluters in the world  – India and China – get to skate free for the next decade or two.

Specifically, in the Paris Accords, China “committed“ to implementing policies that would have the country’s carbon dioxide emissions peak around 2030 … and to putting forth “best efforts” to peak early.

My take: it makes me uneasy that the climate change zealots can feel comfortable letting the perps off the hook for the foreseeable future.

Tells me that even they are not serious about this stuff.
