IPCC Scientists Challenge Al Gore’s View of Global Warming Consensus

IPCC Scientists Challenge Al Gore’s View of Global Warming Consensus

Posted by Noel Sheppard on June 29, 2007 - 13:36.
The chinks in the armor that is a supposed scientific consensus regarding man’s role in global warming continued to grow this week when it was identified that many of the folks involved in the most recent report from the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change were not in agreement with the study’s findings.

Didn't hear about this? Well, how could you? Nobody reported it!

In fact, what you also didn't hear or read due to the media's universal eschewing of this information was that many of the views expressed in the IPCC’s report go quite contrary to assertions regularly being made by the very press outlets not covering this new revelation and the Global Warmingist-in-Chief, soon-to-be-Dr. Al Gore.

Think maybe that's why it's not being reported?

Regardless of the answer, the Heartland Institute, a non-partisan social and economic think tank, issued the following press release concerning this matter Friday (emphasis added throughout):

On June 28, in an historic move the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has released the expert review comments and responses to its latest assessment of the science of climate change. The IPCC report is the primary source of data for Al Gore's movie and book titled "An Inconvenient Truth."

Many of the comments by the reviewers are strongly critical of claims contained in the final report, and they are directly at odds with the so-called "scientific consensus" touted by Gore and others calling for immediate government action. For example, the following comment by Eric Steig appears in Second Order Draft Comments, Chapter 6; section 6-42:

In general, the certainty with which this chapter presents our understanding of abrupt climate change is overstated. There is confusion between hypothesis and evidence throughout the chapter, and a great deal of confusion on the differences between an abrupt "climate change" and possible, hypothetical causes of such climate changes.

"It is now abundantly clear why Al Gore will not accept our debate challenge. The supposed scientific consensus on global warming is pure fiction. Hopefully, the public release of comments and responses will enable the debate over global warming to turn to facts and less fiction," stated Joseph Bast, president of The Heartland Institute, a national nonprofit think tank based in Chicago.

The Heartland Institute has been running ads in national newspapers calling on Al Gore to debate Lord Christopher Monckton, a prominent global warming "skeptic." Starting today, the institute says it is now including Dennis Avery, an economist and coauthor of a book on global warming that is on the New York Times nonfiction best seller list, who Gore has also refused to debate.

Gore has also not responded to a debate challenge from Wharton Business School Professor Scott Armstrong, or a similar challenge from Czech President Vaclav Klaus.

Makes one wonder how the media can continue to support a man who isn’t willing to debate anyone concerning this matter. Furthermore, given the press focus on the IPCC any time it releases a new report, one also has to question why this new information which actually came out on Wednesday went totally ignored.

In fact, according to LexisNexis and Google News searches, not one American press outlet covered this new revelation out of the IPCC. And, though the Heartland Institute's press release was first published by the U.S. Newswire at 5:15 PM EST Thursday, nobody reported it either.

It appears that information from the IPCC is only newsworthy when it supports anthropogenic global warming theories. How disgraceful.

For those interested, the comments of IPCC scientists are available in a rather lengthy PDF document here.

The debate was over before there was even a debate. Global socialism is the final solution.

“Global socialism is the final solution.”

My analyses show that Global Socialism will also mitigate global cooling, should that happen next.

Would you like to see the plan for the health care problem?

An excerpt from Lord Monckton's rebuttal of the IPCC Fourth Assessment Report 2007.

"The report’s generally more cautiously-expressed projections confirm scientists’ warnings that the UN’s heavy reliance on computer models had exaggerated the temperature effect of greenhouse-gas emissions.

"Previous reports in 1990, 1995 and 2001 had been progressively more alarmist. In the final draft of the new report there is a change in tone. Though carbon dioxide in the air is increasing, global temperature is not.

"Figures from the US National Climate Data Center show 2006 as about 0.03 degrees Celsius warmer worldwide than 2001. Since that is within the range of measurement error, global temperature has not risen in a statistically significant sense since the UN’s last report in 2001."

Luckily for Al Gore, Tennessee has warmed over the millennia.

If it weren't for previous global warming, Tennessee would be much cooler and families like Gore's would be living in caves and hunting mastodon.

Gore has also not responded to a debate challenge from Wharton Business School Professor Scott Armstrong, or a similar challenge from Czech President Vaclav Klaus.

I thought I heard that Gore is not doing any more appearances for the next 6 months.

Yes, apparently he just recently cleared his schedule, or so I heard.  Rumors abound as to the reason.

Agreed. I believe that with such a naive, Socialist, UN-deferring policy wonk at the helm, we would have had ‘multiple’ 9-11’s by now.

And he would still be blaming the Republicans.

Kerry may have even been worse, because with him as Commander in Chief, our military would likely have been so completely hamstrung and demoralized that they would be rendered nearly ineffective. At least with Gore, the Commanders would have some experience with him....but a medal-throwing traitor like Kerry has never had his finger on the button, and hopefully we can keep it that way.

This Link is great. It has all the Scientific sections of the IPCC report, as well as comments, as opposed to the political ones. My only observation is that it appears that many sections begin with the "Second Order Draft". Looks like they didn't like the first draft.
