Posted on 08/20/2013 9:04:17 PM PDT by Eric Blair 2084
international panel of scientists has found with near certainty that human activity is the cause of most of the temperature increases of recent decades, and warns that sea levels could conceivably rise by more than three feet by the end of the century if emissions continue at a runaway pace.
The draft comes from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a body of several hundred scientists that won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007, along with Al Gore. Its summaries, published every five or six years, are considered the definitive assessment of the risks of climate change, and they influence the actions of governments around the world. Hundreds of billions of dollars are being spent on efforts to reduce greenhouse emissions, for instance, largely on the basis of the groups findings.

These "scientists" can pay the lease on their Audi A6 and McMansion near the University by doing real work. They would say the same thing if we cut off their taxpayer funding.
They are just objective scientists. They are doing this only out of there altruistic philanthropic concern for the wellbeing of their fellow man and our planet.
The whole thing does not even pass the laugh test. The idea that we can change the temperature on a tiny planet in the solar system is laughable.
Global Warming guru Algore wearing his ever present Nobel medal is seen here en-route to an important scientific conference in Nassau hosted by the UN/IPCC where he was to be the keynote speaker.
Topics on the agenda were to have included Finding a Good Bail Bondsman, Not ALL Criminal Lawyers Are Sharks, Changing Careers for Dummies, You Want Fries With That?, How To Encrypt Emails, The Best Prison Jobs, Getting Along With Your Cellmate and Getting Used to Sleeping On Your Back.
A sudden and unfortunate blast of what the scientist in charge of the conference termed global warming caused the meeting to be rescheduled until Algore can be thawed some time next Spring assuming there will BE one.
Our reporter has learned that the influential conservative web site Free Republic has launched a contribution drive to rent a freezer locker in which to keep Gore for the 10 to 15 years estimated it will take for the so-called mainstream media to begin covering the Climategate story.
The IPCC is NOT a panel of scientists, although some members may have scientist credentials.
One really doesn't need to know anything else about why "respected academics" would make a complete joke out of themselves.
Isn’t this the group whose emails disclosed that they were fudging the data?
50 degree nights and 70 degree days in Indiana in the middle of August.
We’n Hoosiers ain’t a-buyin’-it
It is the ultimate display of libtard arrogance to believe that we insignificant humans can change the climate of our Earth. It is not surprising because most libtards consider themselves to be little gods.
There have been endless periods of warming and cooling during Earth’s life. Humans were absent for almost all of these. How do the esteemed propagandists masquerading as objective scientists explain this? They don’t because they can’t.
No. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. :-)
We should be so lucky. The flooding of the coastlines would primarily impact libs!
Here we go again!
“Weather changes, therefore, give us money!”
Rajendra Pachauri, for example, is the chairman of the IPCC. His academic background is in industrial engineering and economics. He's not a "scientist" by any objective measure.
Massive, endless (I think) universe.
You are right. STATISTS think that they are God. They can control everything. Even the temperature of a tiny planet in the Milky Way galaxy.
God has a sense of humor. This mocking will not end well for them.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change does no original research, but instead periodically assesses and summarizes the published scientific literature on climate change.
So this "panel of scientists" doesn't do any research on the subject matter, but they're presented as scientific experts? LOL.
Yeah! Last Deecimber, I had to warsh out the fahr place an’ shuv’loff the ruff soes Santa could lan’donnit an’ comest down the chimbley! Brrr! Ituz freezin’ out thar!
Funny, how Environmental Industry has all the political power problems they accuse their opposites of.
It’s nearly certain an enormous amount of hot air is being released into the climate by the NYT.
Assume all of these lies are true. The cost for coastal cities to mitigate the damages are far less than the cost of deindustrializing the world.
100% bull Obama on display...
In spite of all the evidence, which shows cooling. But this is science — we can’t let it be influenced by evidence!
If you read the whole article there was one part that gave me some memories. I do remember massive piles of snow as a kid in NJ. Haven’t had the same weather. I do not miss shoveling that stuff as an 11-year-old. :-)
As far as the heat in Texas. As a cowboy fan I can still distinctly remember watching preseason games with Roger Staubach and Tony Dorsett playing in Texas Stadium and it was hot then too.
"...near certainty..." But not certain...
"...cause of most of..." Is most vague enough?
"...could conceivably rise..." Or could conceivably fall.
"...if emissions continue at a runaway pace..." What is a runaway pace, and are we there now?
Still not 100% nor (not having read the article guessing) even near it.
Close only counts, as they say, in horse shoes and hand grenades, so, still
“Isnt this the group whose emails disclosed that they were fudging the data?”
Yes, from the CRU in the UK. IRC, Michael Mann was one of the instigators. When it was found to be falsified data, Mann was strongly discredited. The term was then declared, “The hockey stick has been broken”.
Can’t they just declare certainty and then threaten to imprison or execute anyone who says otherwise?
I wish I was a scientist so I could cash in on one of those fat government paychecks.
Anybody know how this scam works?
You say man caused global warming and get a grant
anything else and you don’t matter
And they make this "warning" in the absence of any hard evidence to support their claim. Satelite temperature data has proven that the earth has returned to a cooling pattern since the late '90s.
But, tell the story often enough and it becomes the truth. Only, we have the emails proving fraud, lying, manipulation and outright manufacturing of climate "data" to match the AGW hoax narrative.
Climate "scientists" the ship has sailed. You'll have to find another boat to book passage on.
“It’s odd that the New York Times would present something that is so blatantly and verifiably false like this.”
Methinks your may be crediting the Times unduly.
they have no way to exist, except w/BIG gub-mint grants
You know what make global warming go up?
Funding makes global warming go up.
Then I want them to reconcile the reports from the British Meteorological Office and other sources that show the Earth's average temperature hasn't increased one iota since 1997, and may even be on a slight downward trend.
I'm not holding my breath.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
This statement is so blatantly false that it seems to have been written by a not too bright 12-year-old with delusions.
Not the left per se. The environmentalist wing of the left will NEVER give up until the remaing 300,000 humans on the planet live in their utopian harmony with bears and fight them without guns for salmon swimming upstream.
That’s childs play though. The taxpayer funded research grant junkies in academia have nowhere else to go. They can’t get a real job working.
“Near Certainty”. In other words “we’re still guessing”.
When they’re ready to go for certain certainty, I’ll pay attention. Not believe, mind you, but pay attention.
There are four serious problems with that statement.
First, the absolute statement is made based on computer simulations performed by academics known and proven to be dishonest manipulators of the input parameters.
Second, the "projections (guesses)" are always defined into the far future such as to make it impossible to demonstrate the incompetence of the process.
Third, the promoters of the sea level rise have revised the previous "certain" prediction of 20 feet (!).
Fourth, the fraudulent "scientists" fail to address and explain the much much hugher previous documented rises in sea level known to have occurred over known geologic history, before any possible contribution by "human activity."
Meanwhile, real scientists with a lifetime of achievement, are ignored.
So what's wrong with that picture?
Yep, change the confidence interval or 500 other things. You can make any study say whatever preconceived result you want.
The hard part is getting the sheeple to buy it and not question it. That’s what the state run media does.
i cite the fact 100 years ago all doctors believed the appendix was vestigial as well as the coccyx.
and how many times have they been certain eggs are bad, and then good.
now can we stop trying to say consensus equals genuine scientific proof, or do we have to wait 100 years for this to be debunked.
You nailed it.
I think the liberal, fraudulent science Bullshit will be much higher than any rise in sea levels. A good pair of waders is in order, with a lot of air freshner too.
These same scientists get caught in bold face lies then just keep repeating them. They have no shame whatsoever. If they truly believed their own BS they’d be telling obama to park all the AF One aircraft and all the First Dog helicopters.
Hey, gurus, didya notice that the past week was like 20 degrees below normal in the southeastern states?
Basically, this constant drumbeat of doomtalk from recycled experts forever saying the same things are just about to start happening, when contrasted with reality, makes one wonder about both their sanity and the mental acuity of the mainstream media who lap this up like mother’s milk.
We are being hosed big-time on these issues and the best response is to defund then place on ignore.
“Grant Junkie” is the co-author of this article. Is that real, or a joke name
- like Naughteous Maximus or Biggus Diccus?
I’ve got two unrelated masters degrees, one an MBA, in which the study of statistical analysis introduced me to how errors can occur within the scientific realm.
Sorry, but the data used by current so called climate science is anthropormorific in nature and extrapolates a data field that is just too incomplete to draw definitive conclusions....
Its a “follow the money” scam to make a few Al Gore’s rich...with no basis in REAL science.
You said it!
Global warming is man made.
It is caused by government funding.
Pay no attention to that big fusion reactor act the center of the solar system!
“Near certainty” is just pulling a wish out of a dark and stinky place!
“A panel of international scientists met with Queen Isabella and told her that there is “near certainty” that Columbus will sail off the edge of the world if she funds his expedition”.
