Skip to comments.Can The IPCC Do Revolutionary Science?

The timing couldnt be worse.
On 23-26 September, scores of representatives of the worlds Environment Ministries are scheduled to meet in Stockholm to wordsmith the final draft of the Summary for Policymakers (SPM) of the key WG1 (physical science) portion of the Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) of the UNs Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPPC).
------------------------------- (snip) --------------
The temperature standstill has been apparent in the data for many years, but the tribalism of climate science rendered it unmentionable until the public disclosures of early 2013. Once spoken, it demanded an explanation and it then became clear there was a great dearth of research on the subject. By the time researchers were ready to fill this gap, the draft SPM had already been dispatched.
During August 2013, a flood of highly influential papers have appeared:

In his seminal 1962 work, The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, Thomas Kuhn persuasively argued that science does not progress through the linear accumulation of knowledge but undergoes periodic revolutions or paradigm shifts.

Revolutionary climate science is under way. The question now is whether the IPCC is up to the challenge.

The governments will support whatever is in the best interests of the governments for as long as they can get away with it.
IPCC and science should never be used in the same sentence.
When a document has such a lengthy and pretentious name you just know that it's conclusion must be a damn lie.
If their "talking points" will be as full of scientific-sounding gibberish as this one sentence, those of us who know what a fraud and hoax AGW is can continue to ignore it with no worries.
Their AGW temperature cooker simply isn't up to the task and isn't suported by the facts.
That's the trouble with the Internet for these globalist fools - we always have other sources of information to dispute what they claim are "facts"
Philadelphia just finished its first August in over thirty years without one day reaching ninety degrees in temperature - just sayin’.....
I agree. That's why I was encouraged to read in this article that the EPA and the EU have asked the IPCC to address the flat temperature problem. The jig is up when these fascists start begging for explanations, excuses, rationalizations to enable them to defend themselves against the rising tide of public opinion.
But the fact that they convene in 5-Star hotels with champagne, caviar and lobster on the menu should prove to the Proles they know better than they do.
You just violated your own precept.
You have echoed my sentiments.
We know from "Climategate" that the close-knit group of CAGW climate scientists has conspired via the peer review process to shut out any opposing science. Thank goodness for the internet.
The attempt to hide the truth via peer review has failed. The public is catching on.
The economy is more important to people than some conjecture about global warming in the distant future. Besides, the conjecture has lost credibility now that the temperature rise has stopped. And the CAGW crowd is no friend to economic growth.
That's an interesting article that you linked. The IPCC is a political creation, not a scientific one. So, yes, I'm sure they leak information to get a reaction. Just as our government does. And then they modify their plans if they get a negative reaction from groups whose opinion counts (in this case, those who financially support them). One thing about government organizations: Their primary goal is to perpetuate their existence.
CAGW scientists will not include Philadelphia in their next set of measurements. (/s)
In the wings, I hear Dandy Don warming up his vocal cords to sing, "Turn out the lights, the party's over. They say that all good things must end."
Trick question — the IPCC doesn’t, won’t, and can’t do science, period. Thanks Rocky.
That's very interesting. That's probably part of the reason that CAGW has lost some steam in the public's mind.
Of course it isn't. The IPCC is a political organization. It is categorically NOT a scientific organization. "Consensus" is not found in the Scientific Method, yet it is distributed throughout the IPCC.
Revolutions in science come quickly. Acceptance of the revolutionary changes can come very, very slowly. Galileo was recently exonerated, nearly a half millennium late. Stomach ulcers were discovered to be mostly caused by bacteria in the 1970s, but some are still treated by surgery instead of pharmaceuticals. Don't expect the Catastrophic Global Warming Cult to ever accept this, in their lifetimes. It's not even clear that we can prevent Catastrophic Government Regulation of these non existent problems.
OK!! Everybody pay attention!
Lesson for today:
1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.
2. The sun is a ball of fire that controls our climates.
3. The earth is a rock.
4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.
5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.
Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?
Of course, they don't really want to control the sun. They want to control your pocketbook.
You make a good point. Today, when CAGW should be in full retreat considering the failure of their climate models, the Left is pushing for immediate legislation and regulations to "stop climate change". We must hurry and enact these laws and regulations before the public realizes that the whole thing is a farce, a lame excuse for more government control and intrusion into our lives.
Yep. They aren't scientists, they are political opportunists.
