Those discredited jokers, gropers and fake scientists of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) have surpassed themselves in the idiocy stakes in their latest Summary for Policy Makers. It is just a rehashed version of the farrago of adjusted data, dubious science, wailing and gnashing of teeth and eco-fascistic edicts on how we shall all live our lives in the future.
Here are a few of the main points:
Sea levels are rising. (As they have been, by the way, at the same harmless pace, for centuries),
The crisis is so dire that even if all the countries stick to their Paris Accord commitments, it still won’t be enough to stop the planet heating by 2 degrees C or more.
Drastic lifestyle changes must be made, drastic carbon emissions cuts must be implemented to stave off further disaster,(no mention of how many of the thirty – something thousand delegates to the Paris climate conference turned up in private jets, oh no, us ordinary punters must change OUR lifestyles but the elites must live ever more lavishly, in order that they may be at their best when dealing with the onerous tasks involved in saving the planet.)
$2.4 trillion must be spent by 2035 on sustainable energy projects such as wind and solar
, (even though these ‘sustainable’ sources have failed to prove they can supply the baseload required by modern, developed societies.)
Climate-related risks to health, livelihoods, food security, water supply, human security, and economic growth are projected to increase as the planet warms
Vector borne diseases such as malaria and dengue fever will likely increase
You can read a Summary For Policy Makers of the IPCC report, published by the IPCC. If you’re a sucker for punishment just click the link. It covers all the points I’ve referred to but the prose style doesn’t make for good bedtime reading.
Using the comparision to a religious cult favoured by many of us Warmageddon sceptics, Benny Peiser of the Global Warming Policy Foundation describes the latest science fantasy publication as the IPCC’s “Hail Mary”: its last, desperate shot at trying to scare a world which just doesn’t care any more. He’s right. None of the predictions made by the Warmageddonist lobby over the past twenty years have been correct. Snow is not a folk memory, the arctic sea ice has not disappeared, the predicted 50 million refugees displaced by rising sea levels must be wearing Harry Potter’s cloak of invisibility.
The reason people no longer believe the “last chance to save the planet” bollocks is first, we’ve heard it many times before, second, it hasn’t been supported by real-world evidence and thirdly because thanks to the internet and free speech (which governments, aided and abetted by Google and Facebook, want to abolish,) we have access to all the scientific research projects conducted by diligent researchers according to the scientific method (i.e. no adjusted data,) and these reports make sense.
Take that tired old line on vector borne diseases. Anyone who has followed this saga or researched it thoroughly knows that this claim was debunked years ago by an expert epidemiologist, Paul Reiter.
As far back as 1998, just as the hysteria was starting to rev up, Reiter delivered a lecture on this subject to the Cooler Heads Coalition:
All attempts to link specific recent outbreaks to climate change cannot survive a confrontation with the facts. In all cases, local conditions (such as the banning of DDT, land use changes, or foreign contact) account for expansions of disease vectors or increases in infection rates.
Yet here is the IPCC, trotting out the same old scare stories as if no one’s paying attention.
What is new, or new-ish, is the IPCC’s overdue acknowledgement that the Paris Climate Accord was a failure. What would be really meaningful is if the IPCC would admit that its attempts to push the globalist agenda by creating a big scary monster have failed.
Meanwhile an independent (and not nearly so enthusiastically reported by mainstream media) audit of the key temperature dataset used by climate models has exposed more than 70 problems with the data which render it “unfit for global studies.” It’s worth reminding warmageddonists, who tend to have short memories, that all the projections and predictions made by “climate scientists” to date have been based on output from ;mathematical models’ of the climate rather than empirical observation.
The problems identified in the data include zero degree temperatures in the Caribbean, 82 degree C temperatures in Colombia and ship-based recordings taken 100km inland.
The audit concluded that the people running these mathematical models are deliberately exaggerating temperatures to support a theory of global warming utilizing global averages that point to very different outcomes to what is being forecast after the data has been adjusted.
The investigation has discovered (not really, all thinking people have known for years what was going on,) that “that climate models have been tweaked to produce results favourable to supporters of global government, and scientists double down on that cheat by feeding the computers with incorrect (aka ‘adjusted’) data, which renders their projections of future temperatures and the influence of human activity on climate meaningless. It also points out The Paris Climate Agreement’s adoption of 1850-1899 averages as “indicative” of pre-industrial temperatures is “fatally flawed.” The entire Paris Climate Agreement has an agenda to eliminate effectively the advancement of society and attempt to reset the clock to the pre-Industrial Revolution. This entire theory that before the Industrial Revolution, our planet’s atmosphere was somehow pristine and uncontaminated by human-made pollutants has been also proven to be completely bogus with archaeological finds showing human activity was affecting the environment 2000 years ago.
An indication that rather than simple scientific concern for the environment, there is a rather unpleasant and authoritarian political agenda at work in the warmageddonist agenda is revealed in the IPCC reports recommendation that we should all eat less meat and propaganda should be employed to nudge everybody towards a vegetarian or vegan diet. Now there are plenty of conservative vegetarians, it is not just a left wing thing, but for the left everything is political thus vegetarianism cannot be a matter of individual choice, it has to be made a political issue.
According to a report in The Guardian:
Avoiding meat and dairy products is the single biggest way to reduce your environmental impact on the planet, according to the scientists behind the most comprehensive analysis to date of the damage farming does to the planet.
The new research shows that without meat and dairy consumption, global farmland use could be reduced by more than 75% – an area equivalent to the US, China, European Union and Australia combined – and still feed the world. Loss of wild areas to agriculture is the leading cause of the current mass extinction of wildlife.
The new analysis shows that while meat and dairy provide just 18% of calories and 37% of protein, it uses the vast majority – 83% – of farmland and produces 60% of agriculture’s greenhouse gas emissions. Other recent research shows 86% of all land mammals are now livestock or humans. The scientists also found that even the very lowest impact meat and dairy products still cause much more environmental harm than the least sustainable vegetable and cereal growing.
Like all the statistics quoted by the Warmageddonist cult, figures cited in The Guardian’s report should be taken with a pinch of salt. 86% of all land mannals???? Does anybody know how many rats populate the sewers and dumps of the world’s cities, or how many monkeys there are in the Brazilian rain forest? Does anybody really know who many squirrels live in the vast woodlands of northern USA and Canada. Can anybody honestly say they have counted all the vast herds of Caribou in northern Scandinavia and Siberia? The probems of arriving at a reasonable estimate of how many small mammals inhabit the vast landscapes of Africa and Asia are insurmountable.
The new audit of climate data and scientific methods also argues that even the most simple basic quality checks have not been done on the HadCRUT4 dataset, which is managed by the UK Met Office Hadley Centre and the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia. The audit exposed that estimates (guesses,) were made to cover uncertainties arising from thermometer accuracy, homogenization, sampling grid boxes with a finite number of measurements available, large-scale biases such as urbanization and estimation of regional averages with non-complete global measurement coverage.
Some have described this politicisation of climate science as a front in the elite’s war on the middle class: Remember the late Maurice Strong? In 1992 this Cultural Marxist activist and proponent of global government was the chair of the UN’s World Commission on Environmental Development (also among the world’s biggest crooks – remember the “food for oil” scam?) said that the middle class lifestyle was unsustainable, and then went on to list a whole series of items that were not sustainable including eating meat…watch this video as 13 mins 45 seconds for the quote.
Strong’s career was quite amazing, from a lowly oil company bureaucrat from a poor background, he grabbed an opportunity to work for The United Nations and while there saw that the elites were planning for the destruction of democratic societies and a move to global governance by a central bureaucracy supported by academics.
in China, but still the power behind Obama and the liberal House and Senate of America. To start to understand this man and his influence read his statement below to a group of reporters.
“In order to save the planet, the group [GIM] decides: Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring this about? This group of world leaders [GIM] forms a secret society to bring about an economic collapse.”
Maurice Strong – regarding Generation Investment Management LLP
Like his close associate George Soros, Kyoto architect Strong, was one of the archtects of the Kyoto agreement, and the brains behind the global warming scare as a means to swing public opinion behind the Cultural Marxist plan for global government. He was also a member of the “Chicago Climate Exchange” an initiative to create a market for trading carbon credits designed to make its founders billions on climate change.
The audit report has exposed the dishonesty built into the climate change scare and the entire global government scheme. The climate treaties, accords and agreements, from Kyoto to Paris appear to be directed at the goal of making fake news the norm. Anomalies in IPCC data it has identified include at St Kitts in the Caribbean, the average temperature for December 1981 was zero degrees – unusual for the Caribbean to say the least, normally the average for that time of year is 26C. For three months in 1978, one weather station in Colombia reported an 82 degrees Celsius average – hotter than the hottest day on Earth. Can it be that these ‘scientists’ whom we are told we must believe because they are so very clever, do not know the difference between Celsius and Farenheit? Then in Romania, one September the average temperature was reported as minus 46°C, which has never happened as Romania is quite a long way from either the north or south pole. The published data revealed scientific survey ships have reported ocean temperatures from places up to 100km inland.
The paper also points out that the most serious flaw identified was the shortage of data. For the first two years, from 1850 onwards, the only land-based reporting station in the Southern Hemisphere was in Indonesia, then a Dutch colony. There were ship observations at the time but Australian records were not started until 1855 in Melbourne, behind Auckland, New Zealand, which started in 1853. The data used to calculate ‘pre – Industrial Revolution temperatures for these regions appears to have been completely fabricated.
According to records of the HadCRUT4 dataset on which calculations are based, it was almost 1950 before data from even half of the Southern Hemisphere was available. Yet they claim global warming has taken hold for 100 years prior to that. Tthe Paris Climate Agreement takes the HadCRUT4 average from 1850 to 1899 as an “indicative” temperature or pre-Industrial Revolution. There is absolutely no possible way the data set being used to support all this Global Warming is even valid for any forecast. And in fact the Industial Reovlution is generally accepted to have begun a hundred years earlier.
