A leaked copy of the world’s most authoritative climate study reveals scientific forecasts of imminent doom were drastically wrong.By exaggerated the mean they lied to us of course, it's the old gi-go priciple, garbage in = garbage out and they knew they were putting garbage into their equations, the CRUtapes proved that along with their determination to make the situation what they wanted it to be rather than what it was. After all, funding was involved and greedy politicians along with senior civil servants saw a scam they could latch onto by way of directorships in 'environmental' companies so were prepared to shower climate scientists and organisations with a bit of cash so long as they kept coming out with what they wanted to hear... which sadly wasn't the truth.
The Mail on Sunday has obtained the final draft of a report to be published later this month by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the ultimate watchdog whose massive, six-yearly ‘assessments’ are accepted by environmentalists, politicians and experts as the gospel of climate science.
They are cited worldwide to justify swingeing fossil fuel taxes and subsidies for ‘renewable’ energy.
Yet the leaked report makes the extraordinary concession that the world has been warming at only just over half the rate claimed by the IPCC in its last assessment, published in 2007.
Back then, it said that the planet was warming at a rate of 0.2C every decade – a figure it claimed was in line with the forecasts made by computer climate models.
But the new report says the true figure since 1951 has been only 0.12C per decade – a rate far below even the lowest computer prediction.
The 31-page ‘summary for policymakers’ is based on a more technical 2,000-page analysis which will be issued at the same time. It also surprisingly reveals: IPCC scientists accept their forecast computers may have exaggerated the effect of increased carbon emissions on world temperatures – and not taken enough notice of natural variability.
However a good few scientists out there along with some intrepid journeyman investigators lifter the lid on the scandal and the green wars started between those who knew that warming was a lie and those who wanted to believe it was true or who were prepared to lie in order to cover up the true facts of the matter. It soon became obvious that the warmists were losing, the public aren't stupid and a series of cold winters made it obvious that the planet was if anything getting colder. Still, why let facts get in the way of funding? So the wars went on and the insults grew as it became clear that the warmist camps were fighting a nasty rearguard action to hold onto the taxpayers cash for as long as possible.
Even today they cannot admit just how wrong they were and just how badly they tried to dupe us. Even today they are still suckling at the now reduced cashflow coming their way.
One day the term 'climate scientist' will be an insult of the highest degree in a lot of circles, I suspect a lot of climate scientists know this. But that's what greed gets you and they really weren't the worst of it, the enviroloonies and the political types are even worse. The enviroloonies still believe they have all the answers whilst the political types will just move onto the next scam.
Greed and extremism make for the most terrible of combinations, don't you think?
