No, scare tactics turn people off

What does the next IPCC report have in store for us?

“That report is going to scare the wits out of everyone,” Mr de Boer said in  the only  scheduled interview of his visit to Australia. “I’m confident those  scientific findings will create new political momentum.”

If big scary predictions worked anymore to garner support for global warming mitigation, they wouldn’t need a “new political momentum”. Scare tactics may work at first, but the public will quickly become disinterested. This guy is dreaming.

About Climate Nonconformist

Hi, I'm the climatenonconformist (not my real name), and I am a global warming skeptic, among the few in generation Y. With Australia facing the prospect of a carbon tax, we need to be asking the simple question; where is the evidence that our emissions are causing any dangerous warming?

    Well I hope they make it a nice big obvious scare because only the witless will pay attention.

    If we steal all their dunny paper they will have to use the report to wipe their bums thus putting it in context and putting it where it belongs.
