Global Warming’s IPCC-We Were Really Sure, Now We Are Really, Really Sure

Posted by Martin C. Fox on September 29, 2013

Volcanos can destroy a summer in the 1800’s and emit tremendous amounts of CO2 in the 21st century. Both without raising the temperature. Whoda thunk it. Not the IPCC.

The big global warming news from the IPCC/UN is they are 95% sure global warming is man-made. So far lots of sound bites but little substance.

The IPCC still cannot explain the 15 years hiatus in global temperature rise yet “each decade has been warmer than the last”. I just can’t follow the logic.

Here is their excuse explanation:

The IPCC model simulations are projections and not predictions; in other words the models do not start from the state of the climate system today or even 10 years ago. There is no mileage in a story about models being ‘flawed’ because they did not predict the pause; it’s merely a misunderstanding of the science and the difference between a prediction and a projection.

Because the models cannot explain the past that is just a misunderstanding but we must believe what the models predict for the future. It made sense to global warming cheerleader BBC whose video of the UN news conference had Professor Mann’s, of Penn State, much maligned hockey stick front and center. BBC-Hast thou no shame? The answer is No.

Oh, but the science has advanced. We are to disregard the past analysis that doesn’t suit the grand plan. What about the raw data and the data gathering techniques of the past? What of their validity? Why should we then trust data from 1900 or 1950?

Now we have discovered the ocean. The heat energy we haven’t been seeing is hidden deep in the ocean. I know there is a current in the Atlantic that is like a conveyor belt. I am guessing this is what the “experts” are talking about. Somehow the heat trapped by the CO2 in the atmosphere travels through the air without heating it, gets absorbed by the ocean and is hidden in the depths. This heat energy then escapes the current and remains in Davy Jones locker.

This phenomenon has suddenly reared its head in the last fifteen years of the industrial revolution. Where was this deep ocean phenomena in the 70’s when we were being told a new ice age was on the way? Just a misunderstanding I suppose.

Remember the misunderstandings brought forth by the climategate emails? Such as the inability of IPCC computer models to explain the two great temperature increases of the last thousand years. Like we have said before there was a reason Greenland was called Greenland.

Mother Nature has been at work for 12 or so billion years. I doubt she has quit her job.

All this new climate analysis has of course been thoroughly peer-reviewed. About time, as we know from the climate gate emails that was previously not the case. I am sure none of the reviewers were hand-picked climate scientists whose livelihoods are dependant on flow of Progressive’s grant money,

Just to add a little spice to the discussion here is Ian Rutherford Pilmer claiming volcanic activity negates much of our anti-climate change efforts. He is controversial but volcanos have wrecked havoc in the recent past. Such as the year without a summer.

Volcanoes can destroy a summer in the 1800’s and emit tremendous amounts of CO2 in the 21st century. Both without raising the temperature. Whoda thunk it. Not the IPCC.

Be seeing you

  1. World climate scientists have outlined unprecedented changes to the Earth’s physical systems caused by a warming climate and said it’s “extremely likely that human influence has been the dominant cause of the observed warming since the mid-20th century.” Ninety percent of the excess heat built up due to greenhouse gases over the past 40 years has gone to warm the oceans, the report said, a finding that puts into perspective the apparent slight moderation of surface air temperatures recently by persistent cool La Nina cycles and other factors. The scientists see no end to higher temperatures and increasing effects on oceans, polar regions, glaciers, coastlines and major Earth systems — and say serious damage continuing for centuries will be inevitable unless there are “substantial and sustained reductions of greenhouse gas emissions.” In scientifically-based and painstakingly calibrated language reflecting the results of thousands of research studies in the past 7 years, the first part of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fifth Assessment report was published on September 27. This part focuses on earth system and atmospheric science; parts documenting changes to living things and people, and methods of adaptation and mitigation, will follow in 2014. The IPCC consists of hundreds of working scientists serving without pay who reviewed more than 9,200 scientific publications for the first of three reports alone. The IPCC was established by the United Nations and the World Meteorological Organization in 1988 — the same year NASA climate scientist James Hansen gave dramatic testimony to a U. S. Senate committee that global warming had been detected.

    • All that effort and I am still waiting for the scientific explanation of why there were two warming cycles in the past thousand years that were warmer than it is now. Do the IPCC get peer reviews from anyone that isn’t living off an Agenda 21 grant?
