THE DAVID AND THE COP26

Posted on: October 30, 2021

THIS POST IS A CRITICAL COMMENTARY ON THE USE OF AGING NATURALISTS AS CLIMATE CHANGE AND OZONE DEPLETION EXPERTS TO PUSH THE CASE FOR CLIMATE ACTION AT COP26 .

WHAT THE DAVID SAYS

The naturalist, 95, posed with the crew on the deck of the RSS Sir David Attenborough, formerly known as Boaty McBoatFace, in Greenwich on Thursday. The RSS Sir David Attenborough is currently moored in London ahead of its first Antarctic mission later this year. The broadcaster pointed to how quickly world leaders acted in response to evidence from British scientists in the 1980s of the damage to the ozone layer, agreeing the Montreal Protocol to phase out CFCs just two years later. He said: ‘We all know the magnitude of the dangers facing us in the immediate future. ‘Would it not be marvellous to suppose that as a consequence of our discoveries, and science’s discoveries, the nations of the world joined together and actually did something in this coming Cop?’

THIS IS THE OLD ARGUMENT THAT SINCE WE DID THE MONTREAL PROTOCOL AND SAVED THE PLANET FROM OZONE DEPLETION, WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO THE MONTREAL PROTOCOL FOR THE CLIMATE AND SAVE THE PLANET FROM DESTRUCTION BY CLIMATE CHANGE.

CRITICAL COMMENTARY ON A MONTREAL PROTOCOL FOR THE CLIMATE.

#1: THE OZONE DEPLETION ISSUE IS PRESENTED IN RELATED POSTS ON THIS SITE:

LINK#2: https://tambonthongchai.com/2021/03/31/list-of-posts-on-ozone-depletion/

IN LINK#1 WE FIND THAT (#1) THE DATA DO NOT SHOW A LONG TERM DECLINE IN GLOBAL MEAN TOTAL COLUMN OZONE AND THAT THEREFORE THERE WAS NO OZONE DEPLETION PROBLEM FOR THE MONTREAL PROTOCOL TO SOLVE; AND (#2) THE BRIEF AND PERIODIC LOW OZONE EVENT ABOVE THE SOUTH POLE IS AN OZONE DISTRIBUTION ISSUE AND CANNOT BE UNDERSTOOD AS A LONG TERM DECLINE IN GLOBAL MEAN TOTAL COLUMN OZONE. A MORE COMPREHENSIVE STUDY OF THE DATA AND OF THESE ISSUES IS PRESENTED IN LINK#2.

CONCLUSION

IN THE ABSENCE OF EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE OF OZONE DEPLETION, IT APPEARS THAT THE ROLE OF THE UN IN THE ASSUMED SUCCESS OF THE MONTREAL PROTOCOL WAS TO DECLARE AN IMAGINARY PROBLEM AND THEN TO IMPLEMENT THE MONTREAL PROTOCOL WITH THE DECLARATION AT THE END THAT THE MONTREAL PROTOCOL HAD SOLVED THE IMAGINARY PROBLEM.

AS SHOWN IN THE TWO RELATED POSTS LINKED ABOVE, WHAT THE DATA TELL US IS THAT THERE WAS NO OZONE DEPLETION ISSUE TO START WITH.

IT IS A SAD AND CRUEL END TO A GLORIOUS NATURALIST CAREER OF AN OLD MAN NOW BEING USED MERCILESSLY AS A DESPERATE TOOL OF CLIMATE ACTION ACTIVISM.

You are so right, a sad old man who quite possibly knows by now that his Climate Catastrophe postulations are indeed unfounded, but he has no way back. He has the ear of our heir apparent. How do you back track at this point? I’ve twice watched a particular documentary on TV of his, the second time because the camera work was enthralling, of the annual feasting of ‘Great White’s’ on seals, off a S African coastline. The voice over by Sir D was quite excellent, capturing the activity unique to himself. The problem being, they were ‘Free Willey’ Orcas doing the feasting.

Thank you Paul for this very insightful comment. I hope everyone reads it.
Cheers.
