    Hello Neil,

    This is quite shocking. Also, it appears to be not true:

    Yes, AGW nihilism is just not helpful at all. It’s a shiny blackness that distracts us from keeping our eyes on the ball – which is how to stop burning carbon.

    It also encourages a fatalism that makes the perfect the enemy of the good – that deploying renewable infrastructure is not the answer, because the real problem is _______.

    If we don’t stop overpopulation, there is no way for anything else we do to make a difference. If that is not the real problem, then there is no real problem.

    The more hopeful 2014 IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) reports have been released:

    Yes, I’m quite familiar with Guy McPherson and his VERY Near Term Human Extinction hypothesis. By 2030 CE. In my opinion, it’s not helpful at all; in fact it’s counter-productive, because as soon as the mainstream media notices it, the news traffickers will be barking “DOOMER PORN!!! — Details at Eleven.” And then when they do the report, they’ll paint all the climate change mitigation activists with the same broad brush as represented by Prof.-Emeritus McPherson and the like.
