ICCC-14 Preview, Ep. 4: Roy Spencer on “What Recent Ocean Warming Suggests About Future Warming”

In our fourth in this series, streamed live on June 17, Roy Spencer, Ph.D., principal research scientist for the University of Alabama in Huntsville, gives a sneak peek of his presentation at The Heartland Institute's 14th International Conference on Climate Change (ICCC-14) on Oct. 15-17 in Las Vegas. In this preview, Spencer discussed "What Recent Ocean Warming Suggests About Future Global Warming." The warming predicted by the latest climate models in response to a doubling of atmospheric CO2 averages close to 4C. Using an updated model – and even assuming all warming has been due to human activity – Spencer and a colleague suggest that future warming is likely to turn out much lower. In fact, even if we don’t reduce human carbon dioxide emissions, the world may still hit the United Nations’ stated goal of keeping warming at no more than 1.5C by the end of the century.

In our second in this series of previews of Heartland's 14th International Conference on Climate Change in Las Vegas in October (https://climateconference.heartland.org/), Climate Depot's Marc Morano joined us for a live-stream on May 11 for a sneak peek of his planned presentation. Morano talked about his new book, "Green Fraud: Why the Green New Deal is even worse than you think." Defund the police to fight climate change? Ban meat? Eat insects? Ban automobiles? Morano laid out the threats faced by The Green New Deal. Morano explained the COVID-climate connection and how the progressives are using COVID-19 lockdowns as the precedent for coming climate lockdowns. Morano talked about how this may be the left’s ticket to a Great Reset in America. Are you ready for daily "climate change" death tolls? Morano explained how activists want to add climate change as a cause of death to death certificates. If you really care about the environment, government policy would be the opposite of what the UN and the Green New Deal propose. Marc shows how free markets, economic prosperity, technological revolution, and wealth result in the cleanest environments.

In this preview of Heartland’s 14th International Conference on Climate Change (ICCC-14) on Oct. 15-17 in Las Vegas, the Heritage Foundation’s Kevin Dayaratna, Ph.D., gave a brief presentation on his new paper with Ross McKitrick and Patrick Michaels on climate sensitivity, agricultural productivity and the social cost of carbon. https://climateconference.heartland.org/ This event was live-streamed at 3 p.m. ET on April 22, 2021. About Kevin Dayaratna: https://www.heritage.org/staff/kevin-d-dayaratna In my research at Heritage, I have extensively examined the integrated assessment models used to estimate the social cost of carbon (SCC) that have been used as a basis for regulating the energy sector of our economy. In particular, I have examined their robustness to a variety of assumptions, including specification of a discount rate, time horizon, and an equilibrium climate sensitivity distribution and found that these models are highly sensitive to reasonable changes to these assumptions and thus highly prone to user manipulation. In this research (co-authored with Ross McKitrick and Pat Michaels) published in the peer reviewed journal Environmental Economics and Policy Studies, we examine yet another assumption in one of the integrated assessment models - the agricultural productivity component of the FUND model. We find that this assumption is based on outdated research and vastly understated. Under a variety of reasonable adjustments to this aspect of the model, however, the FUND model results in a net zero or negative SCC, suggesting that there may be effectively zero or perhaps even net benefits due to a moderate amount of climate change.
