    joke Climate change lies are exposed

    CLIMATE CHANGE LIES ARE EXPOSED

    A damming report has highlighted questions over the credibility of a leading climate change body
    Tuesday August 31,2010
    By Donna Bowater THE world’s leading climate change body has been accused of losing credibility after a damning report into its research practices.


    A high-level inquiry into the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change found there was “little evidence” for its claims about global warming.

    It also said the panel had emphasised the negative impacts of climate change and made “substantive findings” based on little proof.

    The review by the InterAcademy Council (IAC) was launched after the IPCC’s hugely embarrassing 2007 benchmark climate change report, which contained exaggerated and false claims that Himalayan glaciers could melt by 2035.

    The panel was forced to admit its key claim in support of global warming was lifted from a 1999 magazine article. The report was based on an interview with a little-known Indian scientist who has since said his views were “speculation” and not backed by research.
    Fancy that.

    Here's another:

    Himalayan glaciers melting deadline 'a mistake'
    The UN panel on climate change warning that Himalayan glaciers could melt to a fifth of current levels by 2035 is wildly inaccurate, an academic says.

    J Graham Cogley, a professor at Ontario Trent University, says he believes the UN authors got the date from an earlier report wrong by more than 300 years.

    He is astonished they "misread 2350 as 2035". The authors deny the claims.

    Leading glaciologists say the report has caused confusion and "a catalogue of errors in Himalayan glaciology".

    The Himalayas hold the planet's largest body of ice outside the polar caps - an estimated 12,000 cubic kilometres of water.

    They feed many of the world's great rivers - the Ganges, the Indus, the Brahmaputra - on which hundreds of millions of people depend.

    'Catastrophic rate'

    In its 2007 report, the Nobel Prize-winning Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said: "Glaciers in the Himalayas are receding faster than in any other part of the world and, if the present rate continues, the likelihood of them disappearing by the year 2035 and perhaps sooner is very high if the Earth keeps warming at the current rate.

    It is not plausible that Himalayan glaciers are disappearing completely within the next few decades

    "Its total area will likely shrink from the present 500,000 to 100,000 square kilometres by the year 2035," the report said.

    It suggested three quarters of a billion people who depend on glacier melt for water supplies in Asia could be affected.

    But Professor Cogley has found a 1996 document by a leading hydrologist, VM Kotlyakov, that mentions 2350 as the year by which there will be massive and precipitate melting of glaciers.

    "The extrapolar glaciation of the Earth will be decaying at rapid, catastrophic rates - its total area will shrink from 500,000 to 100,000 square kilometres by the year 2350," Mr Kotlyakov's report said.

    Mr Cogley says it is astonishing that none of the 10 authors of the 2007 IPCC report could spot the error and "misread 2350 as 2035".

    From the actual report:

    http://reviewipcc.interacademycouncil.net/report.html

    The Committee concludes that the IPCC assessment process has been successful overall and has served society well. The commitment of many thousands of the world’s leading scientists and other experts to the assessment process and to the communication of the nature of our understanding of the changing climate, its impacts, and possible adaptation and mitigation strategies is a considerable achievement in its own right. Similarly, the sustained commitment of governments to the process and their buy-in to the results is a mark of a successful assessment. Through its unique partnership between scientists and governments, the IPCC has heightened public awareness of climate change, raised the level of scientific debate, and influenced the science agendas of many nations. However, despite these successes, some fundamental changes to the process and the management structure are essential, as discussed in this report and summarized below.
    Executive Summary
    Climate change is a long-term challenge that will require every nation to make decisions about how to respond. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was established by the World Meteorological Organization and the United Nations Environment Programme to help inform such decisions by producing comprehensive assessments of what is known about the physical climate system, its global and regional impacts, and options for adaptation and mitigation. Sitting at the interface between science and politics, the IPCC assessment process has sustained a working dialog between the world’s governments and scientists since its inception in 1988. Representatives of 194 participating governments agree on the scope of the assessment, elect the scientific leaders of the assessment, nominate authors, review the results, and approve the summaries written for policy makers. More than a thousand volunteer scientists evaluate the available scientific, technological, and socioeconomic information on climate change, and draft and review the assessment reports. The thousands of scientists and government representatives who work on behalf of the IPCC in this non-traditional partnership are the major strength of the organization.
    Through its assessment reports, the IPCC has gained enormous respect and even shared the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007 for informing climate policy and raising public awareness worldwide. However, amidst an increasingly intense public debate over the science, impacts, and cost of climate change, the IPCC has come under heightened scrutiny about its impartiality with respect to climate policy and about the accuracy and balance of its reports. In response, the United Nations and the IPCC commissioned the InterAcademy Council to convene a Committee to review the processes and procedures of the IPCC.
    The Committee found that the IPCC assessment process has been successful overall. However, the world has changed considerably since the creation of the IPCC, with major advances in climate science, heated controversy on some climate-related issues, and an increased focus of governments on the impacts and potential responses to changing climate. A wide variety of interests have entered the climate discussion, leading to greater overall scrutiny and demands from stakeholders. The IPCC must continue to adapt to these changing conditions in order to continue serving society well in the future. The Committee’s key recommendations for improving IPCC’s assessment process are given below.
    Lolz.... read the report.

    You're right, the UN Reports are spin making **** up.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I mean the article's interpretation of the reports. But you know that. You just wanted to spout more baseless partisan nonsense.

    Not according the report. Maybe you should read it before opening your mouth.

    Obviously some writer at Express.uk has an agenda and put her own little spin on the report. Anybody who took one minute to read the actual report could see that.

    The article is over-the-top laughably bias and full of misinformation and spin.

    What's really funny is how hard you partisan deniers will work to find one writer, one op-ed piece that you can use. You will search and search until you find writer with an agenda willing write a b.s. misleading article. Doesn't that tell you something?

    The only thing the OP confirms is that a few so-called reporters have their own agenda. Thank you, we already know that.

    Thankfully, the scientific community IPCC, NASA, the majority of researchers in climate related fields are all still in agreement.

    Temperature Monitors Report Widescale Global Cooling

    Over the past year, anecdotal evidence for a cooling planet has exploded. China has its coldest winter in 100 years. Baghdad sees its first snow in all recorded history. North America has the most snowcover in 50 years, with places like Wisconsin the highest since record-keeping began. Record levels of Antarctic sea ice, record cold in Minnesota, Texas, Florida, Mexico, Australia, Iran, Greece, South Africa, Greenland, Argentina, Chile -- the list goes on and on.

    No more than anecdotal evidence, to be sure. But now, that evidence has been supplanted by hard scientific fact. All four major global temperature tracking outlets (Hadley, NASA's GISS, UAH, RSS) have released updated data. All show that over the past year, global temperatures have dropped precipitously.

    A compiled list of all the sources can be seen here. The total amount of cooling ranges from 0.65C up to 0.75C -- a value large enough to wipe out most of the warming recorded over the past 100 years. All in one year's time. For all four sources, it's the single fastest temperature change ever recorded, either up or down.

    Scientists quoted in a past DailyTech article link the cooling to reduced solar activity which they claim is a much larger driver of climate change than man-made greenhouse gases.

    Well it seems that you have no interest in actually reading the report and would rather debate headlines. Not something I'm interested in. When you're ready to get destroyed in a debate about the actual report from your link, you're more than welcome to return to the thread. Until then, be gone troll.

    Do you understand that everything you just listed is very disturbing evidence of Global Warming?

    I don't know if you're new to this subject or what, but let me explain a few things:

    Global Warming does not mean the end of Winter or cold weather. It actually means longer, colder winters.

    All temperature, ice storms, snow, blizzards, freezing cold weather is a function of one thing... Heat.

    Also, check your sources when you read about 'Global Cooling' - you're usually two clicks away from an industry front group financing fake 'science' websites to confuse voters/consumers.

    Stick with the real scientists:
