How the IPCC handles (ignores) factual author corrections in AR4
Watt's Up With That ^ | September 13, 2012 | Anthony Watts

Error #1: IPCC p. 110: “These previous national U.S. assessments, as well as those for normalised Cuban hurricane losses (Pielke et al., 2003), did not show any significant upward trend in losses over time, but this was before the remarkable hurricane losses of 2004 and 2005.”

--------------------------------------

RECOMMENDED CORRECTION: ““These previous national U.S. assessments, as well as those for normalised Cuban hurricane losses (Pielke et al., 2003), did not show any significant upward trend in losses over time, and this remains the case following the remarkable hurricane losses of 2004 and 2005.”

CLA Finding:

There is no error in the statement. No correction is needed and the text can stand as is.

Rationale:

The clause about the published analyses being before the 2004 and 2005 hurricane seasons is a statement of fact about the time line, and it is not a statement that the results were different after including 2004 and 2005. The statement does not infer that the overall pattern of losses would be different; instead it suggests that 2004 and 2005 were remarkable years in terms of hurricane losses, which they were.

To the Left, words can be morphed to mean whatever you want them to mean. And then you can pretend you didn't say what you said. It depends on what the meaning of "is" is.
