As if you didn't need to have me tell you that pushing Nuclear Power, once scourge of the developed 'dirty old man of the west''s image as the saviour of the planet, it's now up to AEA (also BNG, Sellafield, former UKAEA) to promote its' philosophical thinkers, also consultants to the Royal Society as the enlightened ones when it comes to averting some theoretical "4°C future".

Insight – AEA consultants lead the way on adaptation as COP16 begins

AEA consultants Lisa Horrocks and Alex Harvey collaborated with other experts on a paper for inclusion in a prestigious Royal Society journal, published to coincide with the beginning of the COP16 Conference in Cancun, Mexico. The concerns raised in a Special Issue of the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society received widespread coverage, including analysis in The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian, the Financial Times, The Independent, The Times, the New Scientist and The Scotsman.

Current research considering a ‘4 degree world’ examines the possibility an increase in global temperatures of 4 degrees Celsius, or more, the potential impacts of this extent of climate change, and the challenges for mitigation and adaptation.

Last year’s Copenhagen Climate Conference was dominated in places by disagreements about whether the global community should be aiming to limit global warming to 2 degrees or less. The contributions in yesterday’s Royal Society publication are startling because they confirm that a 4 degree world is entirely possible – even by the 2060s under some scenarios.

AEA’s paper provides a classification of the kinds of adaptation decisions that will become increasingly relevant as nations have to face up to dealing with the effects of larger amounts of climate change.

The abstract of the paper is below and copies of the full paper can be requested from Lisa Horrocks, Knowledge Leader, Adaptation, at AEA.

Abstract – Rethinking adaptation for a 4°C world

"With weakening prospects of prompt mitigation, it is increasingly likely that the world will experience 4◦C and more of global warming. In such a world, adaptation decisions that have long lead times or that have implications playing out over many decades become more uncertain and complex. Adapting to global warming of 4◦C cannot be seen as a mere extrapolation of adaptation to 2◦C; it will be a more substantial, continuous and transformative process. However, a variety of psychological, social and institutional barriers to adaptation are exacerbated by uncertainty and long timeframes, with the danger of immobilising decision-makers.

In this paper, we show how complexity and uncertainty can be reduced by a systematic approach to categorising the interactions between decision lifetime, the type of uncertainty in the relevant drivers of change and the nature of adaptation response options. We synthesise a number of issues previously raised in the literature to link the categories of interactions to a variety of risk-management strategies and tactics. Such application could help to break down some barriers to adaptation and both simplify and better target adaptation decision-making. The approach needs to be tested and adopted rapidly."

— Way to sell CIVIL NUCLEAR POWER PLANT, with the inherent reliance of the PU239 nuclear weapons grade enrichment process to feedback into and displace the costs of Decommissioning. See:
'In the United States, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) requires plants to finish the process within 60 years of closing. Since it may cost $300 million or more to shut down and decommission a plant, the NRC requires plant owners to set aside money when the plant is still operating to pay for the future shutdown costs.[34] In June 2009, the NRC published concerns that owners were not setting aside sufficient funds.[35]

THE BBC 'replies' with impunity and attacks my conviction that solar activity is the variable not addressed in this documentary Horizon - 2010-2011 - 10. Science Under Attack

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00y4yql/Horizon_20102011_Science_Under_Attack/

UEA email scam is addressed and wriggled out of, unconvincingly I must say, whilst giving a scientist a chance to blame the audience of the public for being not clever enough to understand the mechanisms involved in the arrangement that lead to the Michael Mann 'Clever trick' accusations that are now debunked (in this show), "What we did was just to add them (the instrument dataset onto the tree ring dataset) on the end", whilst also giving same scientist a chance to take to name-calling with the 'Sceptics or Denier's or whatever you want to call them' comment he happily spouts ...

"Recent Poles show that up to 50% of Americans and 30% of Brits think Climate Science is being Exaggerated".

The New Golden Boy and President of the ROYAL SOCIETY, a noble prize winner himself just like OBAMA, addresses the disparity and incredulity of the American ... and even the British Public ...

I've not watched it all yet, it's available to 21st Feb. But it seems to be a HIT PIECE, with the usual balance elements added to maintain the image of The BBC's Political non-bias.

Should I be concerned, as a Mathematician, Physicist, Autodidact Electronician, and Computer Scientist, as to what the ROYAL SOCIETY and just one Cliche from within NASA think about the presumed inevitable acceptance of so-called climate-change or AGW/CC and does one fear the most misleading zeitgeist in the world, namely — 'where America leads, the rest of the world follows' —?

No your majesty; but one does seem awfully gullible, disarmingly trusting and loaded with immense yet typically human preponderance to side with, in order to appease one's peers ...

But let's not forget that it was in 1590's England, during a time of total Police State, with tens-of-thousands of Citizen Spies at work in the land, that 36,000 political seditionists and religious heretics were hung-drawn-and-quartered at various locations in London & around the land, to the explicit orders of Her majesty Queen 'Lizbath I, and that a Britisher's word on any matter therefore, should not go unquestioned even 400 years later when it comes to matters of national importance and even integrity itself, whether scientific or whether political,- cunningly disguised as scientific. We have a long history of tyrannical oppression & 'the blind leading the blind' in this land.

Where's My Cup O' tea, now?

Ex—BBC Anchor Man Peter Sissons describes his time at the BBC when it was considered HERESY to question anthropogenic Global Warming ...

"The BBC became a propaganda machine for climate change zealots, says Peter Sissons... and I was treated as a lunatic for daring to dissent"
