Climate change not as threatening to planet as previously thought
Climate change poses less of an immediate threat to the planet than previously thought because scientists got their modeling wrong, a new study has found. New research by British scientists reveals the world is being polluted and warming up less quickly than 10-year-old forecasts predicted, giving countries more time to get a grip on their carbon output.
An unexpected â€śrevolutionâ€ť in affordable renewable energy has also contributed to the more positive outlook.
Experts now say there is a two-in-three chance of keeping global temperatures within 1.5 degrees above pre-industrial levels, the ultimate goal of the 2015 Paris Agreement....
Yes, Dr. Tim, the sky did fall in Texas, but what to do with it, when it hits the ground.
Nutter & Moore wrote: The flood standard is intended to protect the federal governmentâ€™s most important asset: our nationâ€™s citizens. Flooding continues to be the deadliest natural disaster in the United States, taking 155 lives last year. The historic floods last month in West Virginia that killed more than 20 people serve as a somber reminder of the need to prepare for Mother Natureâ€™s wrath...
The standard also ensures that in an era of rising deficits and tight budgets, tax dollars are spent on projects that will not merely be washed away in the next storm. The rules establish consistent guidelines based on up-to-date science on flooding while protecting federal investments in an effort to ensure that limited federal resources are not wasted. While many Americans may think flooding is only a problem for coastal regions prone to hurricanes and tropical storms, it is far more widespread than that and can devastate any state or region across the country. In just the past five years, all 50 states have experienced flood damage.
Basically this "global warming" / "climate change" myth is part of a globalist plot to bring about a one world government, and hand absolute power over to unelected bureaucrats and interest groups.
It throws thousands of people out of work in mines, traditional industries, and in whole towns and industries that support these, and raise energy prices sky high so that poor people can no longer afford their everyday energy needs.
People are fed up with their petty restrictions, disastrous effects of these "climate" treaties, while third world countries in Africa and elsewhere and even major powers like China pollute the atmosphere even more!!!

"... the real driver for flood loss and impact in Houston is the built environment," Brody told ABC News in an interview Sunday. "This is a human-induced problem. Houston is a rapidly growing metropolitan area."
Because of all the rapid development in the city, the natural drainage patterns of the region have been changed.
"Instead of water seeping into the soil or running into the bayous, we're starting to see it run into people's homes," Brody said.
Brody also said that's it's not just Houston but other major cities like Miami, Chicago and New York that could deal with disastrous urban flooding in the future.
"As we continue to congregate in these urban areas, particularly in coastal regions, I think urban flooding is going to be a paramount issue moving forward for this country," Brody said.

They don't need more time to "get a grip" on carbon. The lack of warming is evidence warming isn't happening. For the last 20 years the temp rise, so called, has been flat. Yes, the "warming" has been less quickly happening, so much less there isn't any.
Italian prosecutors put geologists on trial for not predicting a 2009 earthquake, despite signs of increased seismic activity, that killed 300 people in central Italy.
The defendants, 6 scientists &a government official, are accused of manslaughter. While this legal action seems absurd, it highlights the trust the public wants to put in the estimations of scientists,&the harm that results when the invalid old-earth paradigm causes geologists to operate in a false sense of security& waste energy on Global warming
Maybe geologists will see the evidence constantly amassed by young-earth creationists &will allow Open-minded thought &planning for building code based expenditures instead of costly attemps to respond to fake global warming.

While most details are still hazy with the best climate modeling tools, the bigger issue than global warming is that more people are choosing to live in coastal areas, where hurricanes certainly will be most destructive.

Are there other comments you would think would be more important? Well, you had better rush to read it, since this is a Wall Street Journal article and it may or may not stay visible to the general masses
