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 deligates 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
One observer – Benny Peiser of the Global Warming Policy Foundation – describes it 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 arcitic 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 medthod (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 fairly frank 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 identifided 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 audit has discovered (not really, all thinking people have known for years what was going on,) that “that climate models have been tuned to reflect incorrect data, which would render incorrect their projections of future temperatures and estimates of the influence of human activity on temperatures.” Furthermore, 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.
This new audit 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.
The audit has exposed the dishonesty in this entire scheme and it appears to be directed at the goal of reducing the population. Anomalies it has identified include at St Kitts in the Caribbean, the average temperature for December 1981 was zero degrees, normally it’s 26C. For three months in 1978, one place in Colombia reported an 82 degrees Celsius average – hotter than the hottest day on Earth. Then in Romania, one September the average temperature was reported as minus 46°C, which has never happened. The data showed that supposedly ships would report ocean temperatures from places up to 100km inland. The paper also points out that the most serious flaws 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 there were ship observations at the time but Australian records had not started until 1855 in Melbourne, behind Auckland which started in 1853. This data appears to have been just made up.
According to the HadCRUT4 calculation of coverage, it was almost 1950 before there was data from even half of the Southern Hemisphere was available. Yet they claim global warming has taken hold for 100 years prior. Then the 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.
