The Earth has only a 5 percent chance of avoiding warming to stay below the temperature level recommended in the Paris Climate Accord, new research says.
The climate agreement, which was signed by 195 countries in 2015, included a commitment to keeping the average global temperature “well below 2° C” above pre-industrial levels. The new study has found that global economic trends, emissions, and population growth make that threshold overwhelmingly unrealistic, the Guardian reported.
This week on “Pat & Stu,” the guys discussed the new research as well as flaws in the climate change argument and cases where scientists have manipulated numbers to make it look as if the planet is warming.
Pat Gray pointed out that the Australian Bureau of Meteorology was recently caught tinkering with numbers in their temperature logs. A review of their temperature recording instruments has now been ordered.
“How many stories do we have to hear of this before these people are discredited?” he asked.
The problem is that warming temperatures, cooling temperatures and everything else is used as “evidence” for climate change, Stu Burguiere asserted.
“If everything proves [global warming], then yeah, I guess under that definition, they’re right,” he said.
