The Heritage Foundation has done the research on the number of jobs that will lost by congressional district due to EPA climate change regulations. Details HERE. Regulation based on policies that were justified by past UN IPCC reports hyping the dangers of CO2 emissions. California District 1 can expect to loose 356 jobs. The total lost jobs for the State of California the is 37,439. And this does not included the losses created by CARB emission reduction regulations and carbon taxes. It is estimated that California could lose and additional 28,000-51,000 jobs, including many high-paying skilled manufacturing jobs, as well as indirect job losses due to multiplier effects.

All these jobs lost will be due to the adoption of past UN IPCC reports as "settled science" and now the IPCC is backtracking as George pointed out, according to the AR5 report anthropogenic cimate change threat is a mute threat. Yet, we have federal and state government agencies spending billions to prevent a non-existing problem, and killing our economy in the process. This should not end well for those that promoted the past UN IPCC reports, but there is too much political slush money to be had for the Democrat's pet programs, high speed rail to know where, rabbit hutch houses on transit corridors, electric vehicles for the rich, and poverty for the rest of us.

Russ,

That would be electric cars for the rich that are subsidized by the poor and middle income car buyers. Tesla made $40,500,000 last year selling the so called zero emission pollution credits to other auto manufacturers.

The climate change fraud will continue. Read the executive summary of the new IPCC (idiot politicians chasing cash) and you will see that nothing has changed.

GREAT!! Russ has yet to be taken into "ECO custody". Glad to see your still on the lamb.
Seems the Unholy church of East Anglia U has been quietly changing it's sermon. The great "hockey stick" has come back to beat them over the head.
Christianity has a better track record of "being right".
I'm waiting to see the "true believers" march through the Midwest in snowshoes preaching the fear of GW. Now don't forget to wear those lettuce
boob covers. No parkas allowed.

Now how did I miss this? And to think I was joking about this a few weeks ago.

I just found a "high paying job" for Joe. " cow backside retrofitter".
Or is that a job " An American just won't do",, and more illegals
are needed to do "that" work.?

Administrivia - posting naked links instead of comments. The TypePad spam filter classifies naked links - URLs without surrounding text - as spam, and I concur. RR comments are for readers thoughts that may now and then be supported by additional materials through included links. In short, to the max extent possible, do your own talking.

Senator Barbara Boxer is on the job, reporting the impacts of IPCC Climate Change in California from her posh neighborhood in San Francisco.

“In California, we can just look out the window to see climate change’s impacts – from the driest year on record in 2013 to the increased frequency and intensity of wildfires. This new IPCC report identifies the serious threats to human health, vital infrastructure, and the world’s economy that will multiply as temperatures warm. It confirms that we must cut carbon pollution now to avoid lasting changes to our planet.”

What we have here is a scientifically illiterate person making claims that she does not understand, or she is lying to influence the low information voters and her environmental wacko friends. One year of low rain fall does not make a drought, and 2013-14 rain season will not break San Francisco’s 1850-51 record for driest rainfall season, according to meteorologist Jan Null of Golden Gate Weather Services. According to scientists studying lake deposits increased warming has not increased the frequency of wildfires over the last 1,000 years.

Then there is the problem of no warming for the past 15 years, while CO2 continues to increase. The only relationship is some dodgy computer models that have been invalidated by the lack of the projected warming.

We must all remember that the UN IPCC AR5 is not a scientific report. It is a political report that uses some cherry picked science to support a political agenda. The politicians knew what the report was going to say before the scientific papers used in the report were selected. Here are some examples:


Flashback 2009: UN Climate Chief Predicted UN’s 2014 report would claim back in 2009 – ‘When the IPCC’s fifth assessment comes out in 2013 or 2014, there will be a major revival of interest in action that has to be taken. People are going to say, ‘My God, we are going to have to take action much faster than we had planned.’”

Flashback 2012: UN’s Predetermined ‘Science’: Former UN climate chief de Boer: The next IPCC report ‘is going to scare the wits out of everyone’

Top United Nations officials apparently knew years in advance exactly what this new UN climate report was going to say. The UN IPCC is guilty of nothing short of making the science fit their political agenda.

Pre-Determined ‘Science’: UN IPCC Conclusions Were Reached Years Before The ‘Research’ Was Done – Flashback 2010: UN – ‘Next climate warming report will be dramatically worse’

Flashback 2009: UN Climate Chief Predicted UN’s 2014 report would claim back in 2009 – UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Chief Rajendra Pachauri in a September 23, 2009 in New York City Speech: ‘When the IPCC’s fifth assessment comes out in 2013 or 2014, there will be a major revival of interest in action that has to be taken. People are going to say, ‘My God, we are going to have to take action much faster than we had planned.’”

Other UN officials also knew years ago exactly what the 2014 report would contain.

And with the latest release,, " No one is sure any of this will even happen". Now these "reports" of doom and gloom come with a disclaimer?

How come Al Gore didn't get the staring role in " Noah"?

Russ Steele

This is something the lame stream press is missing, by default or on purpose:

Everything in the Working Group II report depends entirely on Working Group I. ( see footnote 1 SPM, page 3).

Working Group I depends entirely on climate models and 98% of them didn’t predict the current global warming pause.

Where are all the lefty crickets? Why are they not defending the UN IPCC Report? They are all warmers? Have they lost faith, or is it just time to stop talking now that warming has paused and they no longer have a scientific leg to stand on?

Where are all the lefty crickets?

The grant money has already been budgeted for this cycle......no need to complain as long as the checks are still clearing!

Walt

Russ. You should drop this guy a note just to rattle his cage.

What next? A bounty?

All hell has broke loose in Iceland. Check out their earthquake map.

This could awake a volcano or two. Only time will tell.
