Skip to comments.Man-made global warming: even the IPCC admits the jig is up
Posted on 12/14/2012 10:12:35 AM PST by rocksandbroncs
Breaking news from the US h/t Watts Up With That? where a leaked draft of the IPCC's latest report AR5 admits what some of us have suspected for a very long time: that the case for man-made global warming is looking weaker by the day and that the sun plays a much more significant role in "climate change" than the scientific "consensus" has previously been prepared to concede. [...]
The admission of strong evidence for enhanced solar forcing changes everything. The climate alarmists cant continue to claim that warming was almost entirely due to human activity over a period when solar warming effects, now acknowledged to be important, were at a maximum.

will come out. Hopefully before too much damage has been inflicted on innocent humans.
Not before a bunch of money has been made by the perps. Libs are such gullible idiots.
So now all those CO2 limitation regulations will be dropped, won’t they?
I am devastated! does that mean algore will lose his job?
and maybe pay back the money he scammed for his scam?
i hate to see a liberal balloon bust! now i am have to take collections to pay for depends for the libtards.
So now the building of all those windfarms will be discontinued, won’t they?
So now all those Lefties, Liberals, Progressives (and RINOs) and Democrats will embrace this new truth and admit they are wrong, won’t they?
Don’t bet the farm (pun intended) on it. Libtards don’t let go of their failed ideas easily.
Is this a racist post....??...
arrest al boar immediately for the snake oil salesman that he is. and then hang the con artist.
Too late. The propaganda has become entrenched in the common mind as fact and cannot easily be removed.
It is much more difficult to ‘un-learn’ something than to learn it in the first place..................
Hmmmm....Now who made the sun??
Man is soooo vain about things he can't control and he just goes on guessing like crazy....in hopes that he can control EVERYTHING. Hence...THE EPA !!!!
I’ve actually heard leftists say that we shouldn’t debunk AGW because then there would be no incentive to develop alternative energy.
I wouldn't bet on it.
Nope. Admitting they were wrong is not a character trait that progressives possess. It is why they are progressive. Always moving forward while never atoning for their past. So now they will do everything in their power to make this planets population completely unprepared for the next ice age, which is guaranteed to occur eventually. Speaking of that.
Just looking at that solar graph, in the last 9 years we have only experienced 5 months of net warming or positive forcing from the sun. Assumes moving average below 50 sunspots is cooling (negative forcing), while sunspots over 70 are positive forcing (warming).
Not a problem. The Progressives know EXACTLY what must be done to stop the next Ice Age from occurring. I can summarize:
Invest in green technology
Bankrupt the coal industry
Create new government bureaucracies
Funnel money to friends in new businesses who can cash out and go bankrupt in short order
This is TOTALLY under control, so no need to worry!
The climate alarmists finally have to admit to the effect of solar variation on climate, and that the cycling of the solar magnetic field may have a major effect on climate.
Too late in CA. It has already been institutionalized in order to replace local government with top down controlled regional governance structures (transportation and water) and statewide requirements to harmonize general plan elements with sustainable community verbage. Now there is even a cap and trade requirement. Whenever the rich have an opportunity to invest in another scheme, it will never go away.
It’s intention was to destroy our separation of powers, protections of due process for property owners so resources could be reallocated and to replace limited elected government with “stakeholder” collaborative groups that are “facilitated” into pre-determined outcomes. This is all supported by science which has been politically corrupted to justify these ends.
Is ManBearPig on a suicide watch?
Watched that idiot, Lubchenco, do a show-and-tell on MMOA before a Congressional committee a couple of years ago.

What job?! I just hope he is forced to give back that Nobel Prize. No holding my breath though. He should never have been given the prize in the first place. Here is a story why.
Died: May 12, 2008 (aged 98)
During WWII, Irena, got permission to work in the Warsaw ghetto, as a Plumbing/Sewer specialist. She had an ulterior motive.
Irena smuggled Jewish infants out in the bottom of the tool box she carried. She also carried a burlap sack in the back of her truck, for larger kids.
Irena kept a dog in the back that she trained to bark when the Nazi soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto. The soldiers, of course, wanted nothing to do with the dog and the barking covered the kids/infants noises.
During her time of doing this, she managed to smuggle out and save 2500 kids/infants.
Ultimately, she was caught, however, and the Nazi's broke both of her legs and arms and beat her severely.
Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she had smuggled out, in a glass jar that she buried under a tree in her back yard.
After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived and tried to reunite the family. Most had been gassed. Those kids she helped got placed into foster family homes or adopted.
In 2007 Irena was up for the Nobel Peace Prize. She was not selected.
Al Gore won, for a slide show on Global Warming.
“The forcing from changes in total solar irradiance alone does not seem to account for these observations, implying the existence of an amplifying mechanism such as the hypothesized GCR-cloud link.”
This seems to say that the sun alone is NOT responsible or am I misunderstanding this.
Lots of liberal elites have lined their pockets with this scam - they're not going to let go easily...
I always despair when I see articles like this one. For almost two decades, real science has known that, however minuscule the trend might be in the context of a blink of an eye, geologically speaking, warming exists. This geologic process has repeated historically dozens of times and is certainly not new.
The conflict has been due to the claim that the warming is human caused (anthropogenic,) and the arrogant desire to impose human control over geologic processes. Even our nut-job president babbles about lowering sea levels, and not nearly enough intelligent people laugh...
Too much Money and Power to be gained by “Regulations” for this to die.
“Never let a Crisis go to waste”
Just know it for what it is and know that the people that spew this crap are what they are and call them on it.
I feel inadequate, what a hero. Thanks for sharing
We can all do more
The Nobel Peace Prize has no merit for ethics, or heroism, or noble accomplishment, it is a political statement with a big check.
Yeah Bush. This is one important area where he told liberals to pack it in.
If not for him, we would be under the UN climate regime.
“Dont bet the farm (pun intended) on it. Libtards dont let go of their failed ideas easily.”
You got that right. They will practice on us until the last one dies if we let them.
Thanks for the ping.
Oh, oh. Another AGW ending “bombshell?” How many does this make? 100? 200?
“THE next United Nations climate report will ‘’scare the wits out of everyone’’ and should provide the impetus needed for the world to finally sign an agreement to tackle global warming, the former head of the UN negotiations said.”
This guys seen an advance copy of the IPCC’s latest report and it seems to contradict the claim that the IPCC is admitting the sun is mostly to blame. We will have to wait and see.
Does anyone REALLY believe that after all these years the IPCC is going to suddenly say they were wrong? I don’t.
I am devastated! does that mean algore will lose his job?
Algore has a job?
Algore and friends have milked about all they can out of gullible corporations, politicians and entertainers. It’s time to let it die and find a new scam.
