David Wasdell: at least 5C of warming and 2 metres of sea level rise IMPLICIT

I missed this the first time when it was broadcast. This presentation by David Wasdell makes it clear why it is absolutely impossible to meet the 2C target of Paris and so beloved of ‘official’ scientists like Michael Mann.

He explains how there is already sufficient warming to destroy civilisation inherent in the system as it is now with over 400ppm of CO2 in the atmosphere.

He also explains why the concept of a carbon budget was beyond me. It is nonsense.

Facing the Harsh Realities of Now

An interview with David Wasdell

Radio Eco Shock

SUMMARY: David Wasdell, head of the Apollo-Gaia Project, returns to Radio Ecoshock with devastating revelations about how climate science has been manipulated or ignored by the IPCC, and by the leaders meeting in Paris. We are committed to far more than 2 degrees of warming. A vastly changed world awaits. Radio Ecoshock 151118.

Are you ready for the harsh reality of our future in a hotter world? Can any of us really handle the truth? If you feel strong enough, this may be the most devastating look into where we really stand. Perhaps you remember UK writer Mark Lynas stunning us with the awful changes on Earth if we warm by 5 degrees Centigrade. We may not survive six.
Many hope the climate talks in Paris can reach an agreement that will save a livable climate, keeping global warming below 2 degrees C. But what if the national leaders are just players on a stage of illusion? What if someone told you our current levels of greenhouse gases already commit us to more than 6 degrees of global warming, and over 12 meters, over 36 feet higher sea levels? And that may not be the worst of it.

Climate Dynamics: Facing the Harsh Realities of Now

Climate Sensitivity, Target Temperature & the Carbon Budget
Guidelines for Strategic Action

It is with the utmost concern that we draw your attention to the fundamental methodological flaw in the determination of the value of Climate Sensitivity that is embedded in the Summary for Policymakers of the Scientific Workgroup of the 5th Assessment Report of the IPCC. The error was replicated in the Reports of Workgroups 2 and 3 and carried forward into the Synthesis Report. It has been used as the given basis for every subsequent publication. Our radical analysis of Climate Dynamics has generated a new and robust value of "Earth System Sensitivity" which has profound implications for:

The relationship between temperature change and cumulative carbon emissions.
The calculation of "available carbon budget".
The evaluation of the INDCs.
The terms of reference of COP21 in Paris (30 November - 11 December 2015).
The future global strategy for climate stabilisation.

Our analysis is published in dual media (triple-screen video and fully illustrated PDF). These can be used separately or in combination.
