“It’s a farce”: Dr. Tim Ball on G7 vow create “carbon free” economy by 2100

“It’s a farce.” That’s climatologist Dr. Tim Ball’s reaction to the G7’s vow to create a “no carbon” economy by 2100.

    Those who made that vow won’t be around when that year comes and their predictions are long forgotten.

    • Good point.

        I welcome our new silicon based overlords.

          I promise that, based on my secret research, everyone will be parking an environmentally friendly solar-powered plane in their garage by 2070. I promise. I really do!

            Are you super cereal?

          • Justin St.Denis

            Worse (or better). I am actually a serial super cereal. That is why is am so effective. Seriously.

      I agree that they won’t be around at the time, but I disagree about their statement/predictions being forgotten. They will be used as fuel for those intent on destroying Western development and success. So yes it was a farce but a deadly and costly one.

        The century still has 85 years to go and reality will bite long before then. The public has a short attention span and many of Al Gore’s predictions from not so long ago have already gone down the memory hole.

    Harper knows this is a crock

    • Justin St.Denis

      Of all people on the world stage, I think Stephen Harper is the sharpest bullshit detector of the lot. I admire his restraint and apparent ability to remain somber. Bursting out in derisive laughter is a hard instinct to suppress when your bullshit alarms go off all at once.

    Dr. Ball frequently writes for Canada Free Press, if you’re interested in reading his opinions on AGW. He’s not as technical as Anthony Watts and is accessible to the public – I’ve communicated with him about the validity of AGW data sources.

    There is a fortune to be made by environmental doomsayers green snake oil salesmen all paid for with our tax dollars.
    Just ask the former President of the Liberal Party.

      Diet fads, anti-aging creams……

      Some scams never die.

    Oil and gas are not the only products that would be outlawed by a carbon free environment. Say goodbye to silicon based technology in which oil is a major constituent, many of the fabrics used today, and not to mention all plastics. Many building materials, computers, phones, and ipads. Basically most of the stuff that the left goes gaga over. I’m thinking the progressives will pay as much attention to this statement as Chretien paid to the Kyoto protocols.

    Ball himself is a farce and embarrasses me that I am a Manitoban.

      Maybe once you sober up, get clean, get a job, a life and a brain, you will feel differently. Reach out for that silver lining, oh SpawnOfThePrairie!
