What AWG Skeptics Think About the UN Report (Plumbing The Mindset of AWG Left-Wing Pychosis)
NPR/Frontline ^ | October 1, 2013 | Sarah Childress

Original Title:What climate Change Skeptics Think About the UN Report

Last week, the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change went further than it ever has in blaming humans for the role in climate change in its fifth report, warning that the warming is happening faster, and will only get worse.

“Limiting climate change will require substantial and sustained reductions of greenhouse gas emissions,” said Thomas Stocker, a Working Group co-chair. “As a result of our past, present and expected future emissions of [carbon dioxide], we are committed to climate change, and effects will persist for many centuries even if emissions of CO2 stop.”

But has the new report changed the mind of any of the leading climate change skeptics? FRONTLINE asked several for their thoughts. Here’s what two of them told us:

“The global warming establishment is in denial,” said Myron Ebell, director of Freedom Action and the Center for Energy and Environment at the Competitive Enterprise Institute. “The IPCC summary is merely further evidence of this denial of reality. They are living in cloud-cuckoo land or, perhaps more accurately (to switch to a more modern satirist), they are remarkably similar to the projectors in Gulliver’s third voyage.”

He added: “Nothing the IPCC can claim at this point can change the debate, which is over: global warming may become a problem at some point in the next fifty or a hundred years (although the chances are slim), but global warming is not a crisis.”

Christoper Monckton at the Science and Public Policy Institute slammed the IPCC, saying “Set against real-world observations and problems, the IPCC process has become a costly, self-indulgent, self-centered, self-serving, selfish organized-crime racket.”

He added: “However many lies the IPCC and the mad governments who back it tell, the truth remains unaltered and unalterable. Man’s influence on the climate is puny and will remain puny. … The science is in; the truth is out; Al Gore is through; Green stocks are down; the game is up; the panic is off; and the scare is over.”

In Climate of Doubt, FRONTLINE explored how a small cadre of skeptics, including Ebell and Monckton, began working to challenge the science behind climate change. The film reveals how climate skeptics mobilized, built their argument, and undermined public acceptance of a global scientific consensus.

It started in 1998, when the then-chief executive of ExxonMobil, Lee Raymond, decided to take on not only the business, but the science on climate change. Exxon began funding groups to explore his theory, including the Global Climate Science Team, which drew up a national plan to challenge global warming science.

“Victory will be achieved when … average citizens ‘understand’ (recognize) uncertainties in climate science; recognition of uncertainties becomes part of the “conventional wisdom,” the team wrote.

They’ve had some success. Most Americans — more than six in 10 — do not think global warming is an imminent threat, according to a poll conducted earlier this year.

In the film, FRONTLINE correspondent John Hockenberry asks Ebell about the potential consequences of their work.

PBS/Frontline take on the skeptics of global warming in a very interesting, compelling way, one that effectively demonstrates the extent in which the liberal, left-wing mindset has lost any touch with reality as characterized to the extreme in the manner in which they believe global warming is a real phenomena. On a pathological basis, the left-wing, liberal mindset is one that has metastasized to the very limits of their skull case destroying every last neuron in the process,leaving behind the remnants of a seeming mad-cow-disease ravaged-like gelatinous mass serving as their brain.

Beyond Incredulous, that the AGW crowd has engaged in a conspiracy of the unscientific, proof of which has them being caught red-handed time and time again, now has them regaling the gullible of how the AGW skeptics having utilized trickery, demagoguery, who knows, may have been witchcraft as well, in the promotion of their new documentary "exposing" the conspiracy of anti-AGW skeptics in convincing the public that AGW is a lie.

In Climate of Doubt, FRONTLINE explored how a small cadre of skeptics, including Ebell and Monckton, began working to challenge the science behind climate change. The film reveals how climate skeptics mobilized, built their argument, and undermined public acceptance of a global scientific consensus.

That there is no discourse regarding the validity of global warming in any way, just repeating the UN's report in rote-like manner, dismissive of any one not being the most zealous of believers in tooth-fairy fashion, shows liberalism at its most abjectly pretentious, their intellectual arrogance that they know what's best for you oozes out of every one of their unctuous pores.

The article isn't about global warming per say, the details s uncovered by AWG "experts, the ramifications of the rise in global temperature on every aspect existing on the planet, just only approaching the issue in an US vs THEM arena.

Reading the story, you get a palpable sense of just how convoluted, stricken these people are, their way of thinking having you see them as some lower from of life.

4 billion years of natural climate change can’t be denied. Prepare for the eventual climate change that will happen. Don’t waste money trying to stop climate change, it will always be unstoppable. Use this planets resources wisely. Develop new energy systems that produce less pollution. Quit trying to reverse 200 years of pollution. It’s a waste of resources.

Gas stations across America should have a separate Global Warming button that the freaks can push. It should add 25 cents per gallon to make them feel all warm and fuzzy.

I like that. You could market it as less CO2 for the dollar. Green gas. LOL.

What has baffled me for some time is the utter gall with which the AGW crowd puts forth their claim that man kind’s contribution to a trace atmospheric gas will somehow melt glaciers, flood cities and cause world wide famine ,pestilence and death.

CO2 is less than 1 tenth of 1 percent of the total atmosphere.

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof.

What do they have for proof? Computer models that anyone who bothers to think about and understands computer programs will realize can be written to produce whatever result the program writer desires. The initial assumptions or the formulae written in to the model can produce whatever end result is predetermined by the designer.

Selection of data can also be used to cant the results of a computer model. This has been as I recall the chosen tool for predetermining the results for the AGW scammers because it is more subtle.

For me the AGW emperors have no cloths. They have little proof to substantiate their extraordinary claims.

Okay. I apologize for my uncharacteristic sloppiness. I used the acronym 'AWG' when I meant to use 'AGW' in an effort to save space in the title.

I meant to post the letters 'AGW', which seemingly once upon a time was used by skeptics to mean Anti-Global-Warming, as my fading memory has me recall. But doing research for 'AGW' I was unable to find the acronym 'AGW' anywhere to mean Anti-Global Warming. So 'AGW', by my convoluted circumlocution, was meant as 'Anti Global Warming' even though I can't verify that it was ever used that way.

Once again, I apologize for my sloppiness, lack of being more meticulous about the way I posted the title.

Wow! Thanks so very much. So despite my recent post, I was correct after all. Gotta make note of it.

Thanks again very much.

Here are the abbreviations in use, and their meaning, in chronological order from earliest usage to latest:

AGW = Anthropogenic Global Warming

CAGW = Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming

CACA = Catastrophic Anthropogenic Climate Alarmism

The last one, with its double entendre, serves as a reminder of the weakness of the science behind the promotion of the man made global warming scare.

Well, serious or sarcastic, your comments to me have not been what I would call uplifting or charitable. Saying I wasn't having a banner day was restricted only to the realm of posting comments in direct response to what you had to say to me.

As far as the health of Jim Robinson is concerned , I've had him in my prayers and have been aware of the surgery having turning out well.

Those two issues, posting comments and the Godspeed success and recovery of Jim Robinson, are mutually exclusive.

When their computer model can get the 10 day or even the 7 day forecast correct then I might listen to them a little bit. In computer modeling GIGO (Garbage In, Garbage Out) rules.

began working to challenge the science behind climate change.

More accurately, the began to challenge the idea that there is any science behind "climate change."

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?

Did you ever open a door, only to find out there was a burning keg of black powder on the other side? Like that. Try and forget I said anything at all.

Geesh.

Wow. Corresponding with you is like the guy who knocks his head against the wall fifty times real hard because it feels so good when it finally stops. That’s how I feel knowing I won’t ever be responding to anything you’ve got to say. I never said it was your job to do anything. I’ve been trying to be polite, using euphemisms in response to your obnoxious, off-target comments.
