Why U.N. climate report cannot be trusted
Washington Times ^ | October 15, 2018 | Tim Ball and Tom Harris

Posted on 10/15/2018 7:42:30 PM PDT by TBP

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change climate forecasts were wrong from their earliest reports in 1990. They were so inaccurate that they stopped calling them forecasts and made three “projections”: low, medium, and high. Since then, even their “low” scenario projections were wrong.

Writing in 2002 about the SPM of Working Group I of the IPCC Third Assessment Report, IPCC Reviewer and independent analyst David Wojick explained the sort of problems typical of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change summary reports:

What is systematically omitted from the Summary for Policymakers are precisely the uncertainties and positive counter evidence that might negate the human interference theory. Instead of assessing these objections, the Summary confidently asserts just those findings that support its case. In short, this is advocacy, not assessment.

Having tracked the evolution of SR15 for the past six months, Mr. Wojick says that this is exactly what has happened on this latest report as well.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change procedures allow government representatives to ultimately control the underlying science reports as well by specifying that changes to the science reports may be made even after they have been approved “to ensure consistency with the Summary for Policymakers.” In fact, when releasing the Final Government Draft of the underlying science report for SR15, the IPCC specifies that it is “Subject to correction, copy-editing, layout and ‘trickleback.’” Trickleback is adjustments to the text of the science report to assure that it conforms with the approved SPM. Mr. Wojick laughs, pointing out that “trickleback” begins with “trick.”

Of course they can. They were, right there at the beginning, given the political mission to find human causes climate crisis and that exactly what they found.

Mission Statement => “science” => result

They are being 100% faithful to their socialist, internationalist, one world government masters who sign their paychecks.

Here are some more Climate Change hucksters...

NOAA Temperature Adjustments Correlate Exactly with the Rise in CO2 - Big Surprise

Thermometers show the US cooling since about 1920, but NOAA massively cools the past to create the appearance of a warming trend. These adjustments make a spectacular hockey stick of data tampering. When plotted against atmospheric CO2, the correlation is almost perfect. NOAA is tampering with the data exactly to match their theory.

NOAA Radiosonde Data Shows No Warming For 58 Years March 7, 2016

NOAA Fiddles With Climate Data To Erase The 15-Year Global Warming ‘Hiatus’ 6/4/2015

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration scientists have found a solution to the 15-year “pause” in global warming: They “adjusted” the hiatus in warming out of the temperature record. New climate data by NOAA scientists doubles the warming trend since the late 1990s by adjusting pre-hiatus temperatures downward and inflating temperatures in more recent years.

GISS US tampering.

NOAA = Fake Science!

The U.N. climate report cannot be trusted because the people who prepare it are LIEberals!

LIEberals LIE!

No one listens to IPCC fearmongering anymore.

The boys have cried wolf too many times

A decade ago, I would probably read the press release in its entirety – plus several pages of the full report that I would pick as important or representative. The climate hysteria was already perfectly understood to be pseudoscientific hogwash promoted by left-wing activists. But there was still something new in it, something that provoked us, something we were afraid of.

I am no longer reading this garbage – and neither does an overwhelming majority of the people. There’s absolutely no true, useful, or original content in this stuff. Almost identical predictions have been proven incorrect hundreds of times. Self-described “climate scientists” and their public faces such as Al Gore have been predicting the end of the world for 2000, 2009, 2010, 2015, and every other year. Jehovah’s Witnesses can no longer compete in the number of these failed predictions of the end of the world. Nothing that would even remotely resemble their doomsday predictions has ever materialized.

These days, similar claims are on par with the spam about penis enlargement. Who was interested in such things has probably undergone the procedure, whatever it is. Others just treat it as the pollution in their mailboxes, newspapers, and on TV screens.

The IPCC has just published a “special report 15”: press release, FAQ, Summary for abusers in politics, Twitter hash tag, Google News.

I believe that the number 15 identifying the report only refers to 1.5 °C, a revived temperature change that is promoted – not for the first time. Well, maybe I missed 14 similar previous reports. (I only know the numbering of the IPCC reports that recently ended with 5 or so.) OK, these people repeat their screaming that the Earth is frying and collapsing, tropical forests and everything else will evaporate by 2030 if not by the next Christmas, we need to stop our civilization more abruptly than previously claimed and reduce our planned temperature increase from 2 °C to 1.5 °C. And the temperature change must be measured not relatively to the pre-industrial era but relatively to a new randomly chosen period, 1850-1900.

Well, I don’t even have energy to repeat more of this stuff. We’ve been bombarded by effectively equivalent garbage hundreds of times, the specifics of the newest report are completely irrelevant and uncorrelated with any events, insights, or new scientific evidence. All this fearmongering is just a random mutation of nonsense that everyone has seen many times, with some completely irrelevant and random new noise. One example of such noise is that these folks try to revive and praise biofuels again – many years after even Al Gore has admitted that the promotion of biofuels has been a giant and harmful blunder. In the absence of any genuine evidence, should we pay any attention to some random people’s effort to resuscitate this completely misguided direction in the fuel industry? Also, these new authors label nuclear energy “dangerous”. Anti-nuclear, pro-biofuel: the only thing you can say is that the IPCC was retaken by some of the even more unhinged green activists than during the previous reports.

The Earth’s climate is not threatened at all. The forest area was increasing in recent decades – by as much as 35% in Europe, mostly due to the reforestation of Eastern Europe. There is absolutely nothing special about 1850-1900 or about 1.5 °C or about 2 °C. Nothing special will happen when some temperature change reaches 1.5 °C or 2 °C. We won’t even be able to pinpoint that moment, not even with a decadal accuracy, not even with the most precise apparatuses, and not even with additional decades of hindsight. Even a warming by 10 °C would be safe but we’re pretty sure that we can’t get more than 1-2 °C in a century, the same change that has occurred in the recent 100 years and led to no clearly enough negative developments.

The tropical forests are also doing fine. The climate is more stable in these climatic zones. On top of that, the forests themselves create a local, even more stable climate for the flora and fauna that lives under the trees. There is simply zero justification for any kind of climate-related worries. The people spreading this ideology still believe in the efficiency of Goebbels’ “The lie that is repeated 100 times becomes the truth”.

But I no longer think that this stuff is efficient. This fearmongering is just spam and almost all people treat it like spam. The number of people who are inclined to be attracted by it is negligible and it is not growing. Only the people who consider themselves to be obedient soldiers of any far left-wing movement pay lip service to that junk but they don’t really believe it, either. Just look at the attractiveness of this stuff through an example on the web. Take the U.S. government’s most famous technological institution – yes, it’s NASA, the men who sent 12 other men on the Moon – and its department for climate hysteria. Yes, I am talking NASA’s GISS.

Who is the boss of it right now? Yes, it’s Gavin Schmidt, the successor of James Hansen. Did he promote the “special report”? Yes, he did. He promoted it on the professional climate fearmongers’ most important website, the Real Climate, funded by the wealthiest manipulator with the information in the world, George Soros, in 2004. How influential is Use Alexa to see that Real Climate is less influential than this blog.

But surely the special IPCC report about the looming end of the world changes this arithmetics, doesn’t it?

OK, here is Gavin Schmidt’s Real Climate blog post about this new special report about the Armageddon that is around the corner. It is short and you can see that he was frustrated when he was writing it – it was just another waste of time when he repeated all these superstitions that no one believes, not even himself. What is the reaction of the public to this NASA’s #1 fearmonger with an amplifier provided by George Soros?

After two days, the article has 10 comments. None of them commenters seems really interested in this stuff anymore, either. The IPCC wants to dramatically change the behavior of 7+ billion people but they can’t find more than 10 people in the world who would actually be attracted by such an idea. Not even a quote by a recent Berlin marathon winner at the end of Schmidt’s text allowed him to attract readers. But the previous sentence of mine will actually double the number of his readers! ;-)

Message to all climate fearmongers: Give it up. This unscientific movement has already peaked in 2009, it has been dying a slow and painful death for about a decade, and you will be much happier if you accelerate it and make the climate hysteria die quickly and abruptly. If you help to accelerate this dying, if you will help all the sane people to expose how utterly idiotic and corrupt this movement has been, you will feel much happier. And you will also save lots of money because it may cost you, George Soros, a million dollars to brainwash another person – and most of these converts are just inconsequential simpletons. Climate fearmongers, you’ve become some of the most dishonest as well as useless people in the Earth’s history.

But you don’t understand. Anthropogenic climate change is so powerful that it has changed climate that has already occurred.

It’s not about the climate. It’s about the money.

The whole scheme is based on a red herring, and we should stop arguing with their red herring.

It’s not caused by mankind, and that’s what we need to be arguing. The hot and cold fluctuations are much more likely caused by a periodical outer core and magnetic field shift along with an extended solar minimum.

Those who’ve been pushing crooked trade policies and human trafficking to cheat us all are behind the scheme, and their real desire is toward keeping labor inhumanly cheap and subservient.

We don’t need to be shifting enormous funds or numbers of people between countries. The mega-rich lefties are only doing it to keep us busy, keep us down and to control us.

People simply need to prepare for climate change wherever they are. Those who won’t...well, they haven’t taken care of themselves despite our efforts to teach them and provide for them for over a hundred years.

Get the slave drivers off our backs. That’s the answer. Because they are psychopaths, they won’t get off out of the kindness of their hearts. They have no hearts.

We’ll need to force them by getting very politically active as a first, more civil way of trying. They only have the power that we allow them to have. They’re only minuscule in the scheme of the big picture.

And so is mankind. We can’t appreciably change the climate. We can only try to survive and do well within it.

Where tropical forests are being cleared, the local, greedy natives down there are doing it. They’re big frogs in their small ponds (small ponds being ****hole countries). But those rich misanthropic “philanthropists” in our northern climes aren’t stopping those greedy, ****hole country natives from clear cutting and doing big, corporate farming.

So it’s not our fault and not our responsibility to take in their hordes (to enslave us) or buy their products (to keep us enslaved).

The best that we can do now is to vote, vote, vote! Don’t let those big billionaire bucks win any elections for their puppets on our soil.

” To leave no doubt, in an interview published in the Neue Zürcher Zeitung on 14 November 2010, Otto Edenhofer, co-chair of IPCC Working Group III, said,

“The climate summit in Cancun at the end of the month is not a climate conference, but one of the largest economic conferences since the Second World War…. one must say clearly that de facto we redistribute the world’s wealth by climate policy…. One has to rid oneself of the illusion that international climate politics have anything to do with environmental concerns.” “
