Pants -on-Fire David Karoly - 24 lies in 3 minutes - UPDATE

Previously this blog has written of IPCC Lead author David Karoly and his dissemination of  deceiving disinformation. (LINK)

David is revisited in this post.

In fact, David Karoly deserves the “Pants-On-Fire” award of the day. He wants to aim for a zero….carbon…..society that is 100% free of carbon by 2050.  Does he mean no diamonds, no graphite? As the human body is around 20% carbon, does he also mean no body…er or nobody?

We will interpret David’s reference to carbon and suggest he actually means carbon dioxide (CO2). Not very scientific to be loose with your terminology, David.

1000frolly has published an interview with David in which he let’s loose more lies. In fact 24 in just 3 minutes. In the youtube below he has added a beep for every one of David’s lies.

Here are just some:

The models are saying we need to act very urgently;
CO2 damages the planet and the climate;
We need large reductions in emissions so we don’t damage the climate;
Only a half degree up or down over the last 10,000 years;
The climate system is going faster and faster like a really big train;
The change is accelerating;
Greenhouse gases and carbon pollution;
As the worst polluter in the world, Australia has to take the lead;
There are going to be very many adverse impacts from climate change;
We need to invest across a whole range of zero carbon energy generating technologies;
We need to do this and to save money in the process;
There are energy efficient opportunities by using renewable energy opportunities;
There will be dramatic benefits from a carbon (dioxide) free society;

When will they ever learn?

  1. Nice comment on carbon. Even the skeptics seem to buy the poor use of the language and tie right into the demonization of carbon when they use carbon emissions rather than emissions as carbon or carbon equivalent.

    And what are the benefits of drastically reduced CO2 emissions? How about a reduction in life expectancy back towards the 35 years it was just a couple hundred years ago? And, yes, everyone would have a great chance of full employment. I believe that is one of the definitions of subsistence survival.

    Like most liars that try to convince you, he talks really fast. And who was the lady in the interview? Her looks of horror and head shakes in agreement were priceless.
