Climate Depot Round Up: UN IPCC Exhumes, Brings Climate Catastrophe Back From The Grave…Politicians, Activists Dancing Like It’s 2007!
Marc Morano Statement: “It appears the UN IPCC rejected advice from many to deal with discrepancies between man-made global warming claims and climate reality. The UN chose to double down and act as though Climategate never happened or the global temperature standstill for 15 or more years does not exist. The UN IPCC has stuck to the same old script. However, less and less people are now willing to buy what they are selling. Global warming skeptics have thus far prevailed in this debate by relying on science, data, and healthy doses of skepticism. The UN IPCC — steeped in politics — appears incapable of producing a report that would challenge its government mandated narrative claiming man-made global warming is a threat.” For an alternative to UN claims, see: CLIMATE STUDY COUNTERS UN IPCC: EVIDENCE LEANS AGAINST HUMAN-CAUSED GLOBAL WARMING — Group of 50 international scientists releases comprehensive new 1200-page report
UN IPCC Exhumes, Brings Climate Catastrophe Back From The Grave…Politicians, Activists Dancing Like It’s 2007! — ‘The media, politicians and activists are all in a celebratory mood – the climate catastrophe is back, real and approaching faster than ever after all. The UN just certified it! Climate activists are in a state of euphoria again – They’re out dancing in the streets – there hasn’t been such a feeling since 2007.’ ‘Happy days are back again – the catastrophe is coming, the UN reassures the world. The 15 years of model failure are not significant after all. In fact the UN now says the models are better than ever and the climate scientists are now 95% confident that the climate catastrophe is coming and that our living standards are responsible for it. Never before have scientists been more confident.’
UN climate report glosses over 15 years without global warming — Daily Caller Features Climate Depot: ‘You have to pity the UN. The climate events of 2013 has been one of the most devastating to the UN’s political narrative on global warming,” said Marc Morano, publisher of Climate Depot, a climate skeptic website. Morano added that ‘both poles have expanding ice, with the Antarctic breaking all time records, global temperatures have failed to rise for 15 plus years, global cooling has occurred since 2002, polar bear numbers are increasing, wildfire’s are well below normal, sea level rise is failing to accelerate, tornadoes are at record lows, hurricanes are at record low activity, Gore’s organization is flailing and losing donors amid layoffs, former climate believers like Judith Curry are growing more skeptical by the day.’
Skeptics Not Impressed: IPCC Fails To Come Clean Over Global Temperature Standstill — The IPCC has decided to discount the global warming standstill since 1997 as irrelevant and has deleted from its final document its original acknowledgement (in its 7 June draft) that climate models have failed to ’reproduce the observed reduction in surface warming trend over the last 10-15 years.’ Not only has the IPCC failed to predict the ongoing temperature standstill, its climate models actually predicted accelerated warming due to the increase of CO2 emissions.
Band-aids Can’t Fix the New IPCC Report – Says CLIMATOLOGIST DR. PATRICK J. MICHAELS & CHIP KNAPPENBERGER — ‘The Humpty Dumpty-esque report once claiming to represent the “consensus of scientists” has fallen from its exalted wall and cracked to pieces under the burdensome weight of its own cumbersome and self-serving processes, which is why all the governments’ scientists and all the governments’ men cannot put the IPCC report together again…the latest science on two key issues: how much the earth will warm as a result of human greenhouse gas emissions, and how well climate models perform in projecting the warming, are largely not incorporated in the new IPCC report…The IPCC report should be torn up and tossed out, and with it, the entire IPCC process which produced such a misleading (and potentially dangerous) document.’
New climate report revives questions on global warming: Marc Morano of Climate Depot disagrees with that figure and finds little rationale for making the 95% confidence claim. “Nowhere in the Associated Press article does it talk about the basis for arriving at the 95% ‘confident’ figure,” he tells OneNewsNow. “Actually, Reuters came up with it and reported it. It was just a gut feeling, a discussion among authors. In other words, they just pulled numbers out of thin air.”
Climatologist Dr. Roy Spencer Mocks New UN IPCC report: ‘We don’t need no stinking climate sensitivity!’ — Spencer: ‘The recent ~15 year lull in warming is hardly mentioned at all (nothing to see here, move along). A best estimate for climate sensitivity — unarguably THE most important climate change variable — is no longer provided, due to mounting contradictory evidence on whether the climate system really cares very much about whether there are 2, or 3, or 4, parts of CO2 per 10,000 parts atmosphere. YET…the IPCC claims their confidence has DOUBLED (uncertainty reduced from 10% that 5%) regarding their claim that humans are most of the cause behind the warming trend in the last 50 years or so.’ ‘Without knowing just how much of recent warming is natural, there is no way to know how much is anthropogenic *nor* how sensitive the climate system is. This is a glaring source of uncertainty that the IPCC continues to gloss over, sweep under the rug’
Just who wrote this IPCC report? Meet UN IPCC Ideological Activist & Co-Chair of Working Group I Prof. Thomas F. Stocker: Flashback 2011: Triple price of gas to save planet, UN IPCC’s Thomas Stocker argues
Prof. Stocker is saving you from yourself! ‘Canadians may abhor the rising price of gasoline, but Thomas Stocker suggests the planet might be better off if it soared to “three to four” times its current level. “This is scandalous, I know,” said Stocker, adding sky-high gasoline could help slow the climate change which world leaders have declared one of the greatest challenges of our time…He said Canadians, like Americans, could make a significant dent in their emissions by reducing per capita energy use, which is among the highest on the planet.’
‘The general theme of obscurantism runs across the document’ — ‘Ducking, diving, bobbing and weaving are the general themes of the [IPCC] Summary for Policymakers, just released’ — Andrew Montford: ‘Not a word on the hurricane drought in recent years.’
‘Looks like the politicians deleted the attribution discussion for the warming plateau; – Bob Tisdale on UN IPCC: ‘Sorry IPCC – How You Portrayed the Global Temperature Plateau is Comical at Best’ — Tisdale: ‘ — ‘Regarding the cause of the warming, still living in fantasy world…They’re still misleading the public. Everyone knows (well, many of us know) their models can’t simulate the natural processes that cause surface temperatures to warm over multidecadal timeframes, yet they insist on continuing this myth.’
‘I just created a Side-By-Side Comparison of Draft and Final IPCC AR5 SPM on Warming Plateau and Attribution from the final draft (7Jun2013) and the approved final version (27Sep2013) of the IPCC’s AR5 Summary for Policymakers. Looks like the politicians deleted the attribution discussion for the warming plateau.’
Climatologist Dr. Judith Curry on new UN IPCC report: ‘Oh, my aching head’ — Curry: ‘I have no idea what goes on in the sausage factory. 95% – take it with a grain of salt (or a stiff whiskey). That’s their story, and they’re sticking to it.’
