As we see our President throw money at Green Energy companies like they were his college Coke Dealers, there is a major report getting ready to hit the United Nations. Apparently 36 of 38 computer generated models were wrong, and now the scientific community is forced to admit that the earth is warming at roughly half the rate they previously stated.
Think about all of the hundreds of billions, or possibly trillions of dollars that the world has spent to be more environmentally friendly in recent years. Don't take that the wrong way. We should respect the earth but think about all of the decisions that are made based on environmental issues. The Keystone Pipeline comes to mind. What about Obama's current war on coal producers?
When decisions that hurt us economically (like "green" investments that have not paid off) are the result of lies spread by the scientific community then I have a real problem with it. Hopefully the forthcoming UN report will force many world leaders to admit that the science was wrong.
The Daily Mail reports:
A leaked copy of the world's most authoritative climate study reveals scientific forecasts of imminent doom were drastically wrong.
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.
Even scientists make mistakes, but it will be interesting to see the reaction to these forthcoming reports. You will get a huge "tell" when you see the reaction or lack of reaction by the Obama Administration. My guess is that there will be no reaction at all in Washington. They will act as if these findings do not even exist.
Why? It's because environmental policies tend to have very little to do with the environment. These policies are often times excuses to push agendas. Isn't that right Mrs. Feinstein?
We shall see. My guess is that very few republicans even bother trying to push this. With some of the recent Town Hall meetings I wonder how many of them really even care about doing their jobs. Isn't that right Markwayne Mullin?
Either way, we shall see. This is probably viewed as the most credible source of environmental science that the world has, and my bet is that our elected servants don't even bother reading the report.
