Government scientists no longer allowed to calculate effects of global warming beyond the year 2040.

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/27/us/politics/trump-climate-science.html

The attack on science is underway throughout the government. In the most recent example, the White House-appointed director of the United States Geological Survey, James Reilly, a former astronaut and petroleum geologist, has ordered that scientific assessments produced by that office use only computer-generated climate models that project the impact of climate change through 2040, rather than through the end of the century, as had been done previously.

Scientists say that would give a misleading picture because the biggest effects of current emissions will be felt after 2040. Models show that the planet will most likely warm at about the same rate through about 2050. From that point until the end of the century, however, the rate of warming differs significantly with an increase or decrease in carbon emissions.

1. Preserves real estate values, by passing the negative surprise to stupid buyers. So, listen

up you savvy buyers. Be sure you get global change scenarios at least thru 2125 to protect your investments in land and real estate.

3. This is so sad

 

It is so distressing to see our own government censoring science.

The Soviet Union did this with Lysenko and genetics and it was disastrous.

4. Lysenko was a fraud and the government supported him.
