Science utterly abandoned in UN climate change report: 15 years of data selectively ignored
by J. D. Heyes
(NaturalNews) If you're still a fan of Al Gore and believe his "campaign" against global warming is truly substantive and real, well, this story should convince you once and for all that, when it comes to climate change, he's nothing more than a lot of hot air.
A recently released and quite exhaustive report from a United Nations climate panel which claimed with 95 percent certainty that human beings are responsible for so-called "global warming" neglected to include data which found that our planet has not been warming over the past 15 years, because such data did not fit with the climate change agenda it seeks to advance.
In other words, the panel - the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) - purposefully ignored bona fide scientific data in order to advance a left-wing political agenda (and really, this entire issue of global warming/climate change has been concocted as nothing but a political agenda meant to control you and your life).
'There may also be ... an overestimate of the response to increasing greenhouse gas...'
Per Breitbart News:
The report...could not explain "why the planet has largely stopped warming over the past 15 years." So it just ignored it. According to the climate data from the U.K.'s weather-watching Met Office, "global surface temperatures rose rapidly during the 70s," but they have "have [sic] been relatively flat over the past decade and a half, rising only 0.05 degrees Celsius (0.09 degrees Fahrenheit)."
The final version of the IPCC report states: "Due to natural variability, trends based on short records are very sensitive to the beginning and end dates and do not in general reflect long-term climate trends. ...There may also be ... an overestimate of the response to increasing greenhouse gas and other anthropogenic forcing."
A later reference says that volcanoes, solar activity and oceans may have played a role in the warming, but the IPCC said it wasn't confident in that finding, according to Fox News.
Other experts clearly see the political agenda at work here. And they also see a climate change panel struggling to remain relevant.
Judith Curry, professor and chair of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology, notes, "IPCC has thrown down the gauntlet - if the pause continues beyond 15 years (well it already has), they are toast."
Benny Peiser, director of the Global Warming Policy Foundation, adds, "Unless global temperature will begin to rise again in the next few years, the IPCC is very likely going to suffer an existential blow to its credibility."
Indeed, the trend already has continued longer.
Before the IPCC released its fictitious report, earlier reports had already demonstrated how wildly overestimated climate models utilized by the politically motivated climate change pseudo-science crowd have been in regards to "warming."
Despite no evidence, IPCC insists it has evidence
More from Breitbart:
For instance, a study in the journal Nature Climate Change "compared 117 climate predictions made in the 1990's to the actual amount of warming" and 114 of those predictions overestimated the amount of warming. Other studies have found that various climate models used by the United Nations have "forecasted two times more global warming than actually occurred."
And, as has been noted previously, a separate group of 50 international scientists in their own report which cited thousands of peer-reviewed articles that the UN panel ignored "concluded that evidence now leans against global warming resulting from human-related greenhouse gas emissions."
Still, the panel clings to its conclusions. "Our assessment of the science finds that the atmosphere and ocean have warmed, the amount of snow and ice has diminished, the global mean sea level has risen and the concentrations of greenhouse gases have increased," says Qin Dahe, co-chair of the working group that wrote the report.
