Skip to comments.How scientists got global warming sums wrong - bullied experts who dared to question the figures

The scientists who produce those doomsday reports for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change finally come clean. The planet has stubbornly refused to heat up to predicted levels.
Right now the scientists owe us an apology so enormous that I doubt even a bunch of two dozen roses every day for the rest of our lives is quite enough to make amends for the damage theyve done.
Thanks to their bad advice on climate change our gas and electricity bills have rocketed.
So too have our taxes, our car bills and the cost of flying abroad, our kids have been brainwashed into becoming tofu-munching eco-zealots, our old folk have frozen to death in fuel poverty, our countryside has been blighted with ranks of space-age solar panels and bat-chomping, bird-slicing eco-crucifixes, our rubbish collection service hijacked by hectoring bullies, our cities poisoned with diesel fumes . . .
And all because a tiny bunch of scientists got their sums wrong and scared the world silly with a story about catastrophic man-made global warming.
This scare story, we now know, was at best an exaggeration, at worst a disgraceful fabrication. But while a handful of reviled and derided sceptics have been saying this for years, its only this week that those scientists have fessed up to their mistake.
In a new paper in the prestigious journal Nature Geoscience, the scientists who produce those doomsday reports for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change have finally come clean the computer models theyve been using to predict runaway global warming are wrong, the planet has stubbornly refused to heat up anywhere near as much as theyd warned.
In the name of promoting the global warming myth, free speech has been curtailed, honest science corrupted and vast economic and social damage done. That apology is long overdue.

20 Sept: Daily Mail: Now that’s an inconvenient truth: Report shows the world isn’t as warm as the green doom-mongers warned. So will energy bills come down? Fat chance, says MP Graham Stringer
By Graham Stringer Labour MP And Member Of Commons Science And Technology Committee
Al Gore, the U.S. politician and self-appointed champion of the green cause, famously declared that the science is settled on climate change.
It was a claim that revealed far more about the intolerance of the environmental movement than the reality of scientific inquiry.
Now the hollowness of Gores assertion is exposed again by a vital new report that shows how the apocalyptic predictions of the green lobby have been exaggerated...
According to these models, temperatures across the world should now be at least 1.3 degrees above the mid-19th century average, which is taken as a base level in such calculations. But the British report demonstrates that the rise is only between 0.9 and 1 degree.
That discrepancy is a big deal, says Professor Myles Allen of Oxford University, one of the authors of the study. He is absolutely right.
The importance of this new investigation cannot be downplayed...
It shows that so many of the assumptions behind the imposition of the fashionable eco agenda such as the creation of vast, subsidised wind farms or the levying of green taxes are wrong. Yet the environmental warriors show not a shred of embarrassment over these new findings...
I was particularly intrigued by the infamous scandal at the Climatic Research Unit in the University of East Anglia in 2009, when a series of leaked emails appeared to show that scientists there had distorted historical research to suit the green narrative. As a member of the Science and Technology Select Committee, I followed the saga closely.
I was therefore disappointed when my colleagues on the Committee, having conducted an inquiry into the Climategate scandal, did not come to a more robust conclusion about the scale of the scientific manipulation at the unit. Too many of them seemed to be following the herd.
But, as the latest report demonstrates, the weakness of the global warmists case is now obvious. This is not just a question of misreading data. It is essentially a matter of broken computer models and a determination to ignore any inconvenient truths...
As to the validity of “global warming” or “man-made climate change” -
Worse than the added taxes and subsequent regulations, the sheer volume of so much misinformation floating around that is disguised as “conventional wisdom”, and the number of people that have come to believe so much that just isn’t so, makes the problem of actually sifting through and separating “probably true” from “probably false”, a Herculean task.
It does not help in the least, either, that there are already websites and periodicals out there that claim to be “fact-checkers” but in truth simply propagate the old myths by repetition, by consulting what “every expert thinks”.
Truth is not subject to consensus.
Oooohhh, I like that one! I hadn't heard it before to describe those monstrous wind propellers. I'm going to use that one again ...
Now, that’s funny
What galls me beyond belief is these guys have succeeded in blurring the line between a warming climate and man made climate warming.
I wonder what they would say if we ran into a mini ice age like the last one in the early 1600s. Probably would cite individuals setting their AC too low which resulted in man made global cooling!
I notice that there is no reported apology for the fraudulent manipulation/change of raw data or even an acknowledgement that such fraud exists.
This whole we got it a bit wrong meme is likely because with a new honest sheriff in town (Trump) they know honest appointees will be coming in and the CYA begins.
We will never hear about global warming or climate change in the media again. They will just go dark. Like it never happened. Like Al Gore never got a novel peace prize for his “excellent” scientific work on globull warming.
Oh, there will be the occasional slip up, someone will forget, or some elite will speak about it, like on the view or something, but overall, it will be zip, nada.
Don’t bet on it. They may quiet down for a while, but they will come back later like this research never happened.
What angers me is that they have convinced so many nitwits that “climate change” is something that never happens naturally and that man has the power to control the climate in a good way with money and government control over people and resources. It’s too early in the day to get this angry.
This in our face action by the Gorebull Warming thugs is just another prime example of Intellectual Yet Idiots trying to tell us how to live, vote and to consider the abnormal as normal!
Our Governments, Universities/Colleges and many businesses/corporations are controlled and operated by the Intellectual Yet Idiots, who have been controlling our lives for decades. These Intellectual Yet Idiots control our media, institutions, most of DC and many states down to the county/city level.
Nassim Taleb Exposes The Worlds Intellectual-Yet-Idiot Class!
What we have been seeing worldwide, from India to the UK to the US, is the rebellion against the inner circle of no-skin-in-the-game policymaking clerks and journalists-insiders, that class of paternalistic semi-intellectual experts with some Ivy league, Oxford-Cambridge, or similar label-driven education who are telling the rest of us 1) what to do, 2) what to eat, 3) how to speak, 4) how to think and 5) who to vote for.
With psychology papers replicating less than 40%, dietary advice reversing after 30 years of fatphobia, macroeconomic analysis working worse than astrology, the appointment of Bernanke who was less than clueless of the risks, and pharmaceutical trials replicating at best only 1/3th of the time, people are perfectly entitled to rely on their own ancestral instinct and listen to their grandmothers (or Montaigne and such filtered classical knowledge) with a better track record than these policymaking goons.
Indeed one can see that these academica-bureaucrats wanting to run our lives arent even rigorous, whether in medical statistics or policymaking. They cant tell science from scientism??in fact in their eyes scientism looks more scientific than real science. (For instance it is trivial to show the following: much of what the Cass-Sunstein-Richard Thaler types??those who want to nudge us into some behavior??much of what they call rational or irrational comes from their misunderstanding of probability theory and cosmetic use of first-order models.)

We’ve been listening to the global warming BS for decades. Looks like now we’ll be listening to excuses for their BS for a few more decades.
It needs to be pointed out that mid-19th century thermometers were incapable, except in very limited laboratory settings to have sub-degree accuracy.
To use the poetic style of James Delingpole, the reason these junk scientists will not issue any apology is the same as why dogs will not stop licking their balls. Because they can.
