NatGeo Propagandists Defend IPCC Warming Claims

by: the Common Constitutionalist


The latest IPCC report has been released on global climate change. To everyone’s surprise the report warns of catastrophic global warming on the horizon. Surprise!


The IPCC did have to admit the obvious… well kind of… that there has been no warming recently. But just you wait… you’ll see… the earth will start boiling again any day now.


Propagandists such as National Geographic online sprung into action highlighting the major IPCC claims as virtually irrefutable proof of warming. Riiiiiiiiiiiiight.


Here are just the two biggies, with of course my accompanying comments.


Before I touch on these points, I would like to correct one thing. Last week I wrote that “climate scientists” had overestimated the Earth’s sensitivity to CO2 emissions by some 30%. Well, I am man enough to admit I was wrong. The overestimation wasn’t by 30%. It was actually some 40%. That’s almost half! Knowing that, how dependable do you think a simulations outcome would be when the data you input is off by almost half? The IPCC scientists are either the dumbest smart guys on earth or criminally negligent. It is the latter and they know it and don’t care… I’m certain of it.


But just for fun – let’s go through 2 of their silly claims. read more

Global Warming Lives at the IPCC

by: the Common Constitutionalist


So the U.N. IPCC high priests of Global Warming are meeting this week. No doubt flying in to Stockholm, Sweden on private pollutant spewing jets.

Despite all data to the contrary, their final report on the scourge of manmade global warming, to be released on Sept. 30 will surely be chock-full of dire predictions of Armageddon unless America reverts to third world status.

Yet some have started to recognize the graffiti on the walls at the “Church of the Burning Planet”, as Larry Bell calls it, that temperatures have been flat to cooling for the past 17 years.

Mr. Bell wrote that of all publications, The New York Times reported on June 6: “The rise in the surface temperature of Earth has been markedly slower over the last 15 years than in the 20 years before that. And that lull in warming has occurred even as greenhouse gases have accumulated in the atmosphere at a record pace.” Reporter Justin Gillis went on to admit that the break in temperature increases “highlights important gaps in our knowledge of the climate system”, whereby the lack of warming “is a bit of a mystery to climate scientists.”

Maybe the New York Times is the harbinger of a global climate shift? Could this be the opening salvo to the eventual shift from the warming hysteria to cooling? They were the first to do a 180 from cooling to warming in 1981, when just 6 years earlier Newsweek had their infamous, “The Ice Age Cometh” cover story that scared the crap out of many. The NYT even published their own article in 1975 entitled “Major cooling may be ahead”. read more

The Real Political Science

 Even as climate alarmists amplify their call for a worldwide tax on carbon dioxide emissions in the name of preventing global warming – penguins, polar bears, Himalayan glaciers and Arctic sea ice are all thriving.

With dire proclamations of ice free Arctic summers vehemently debunked, the latest data indicates that both wildlife and the environment in earth’s coldest regions has not experienced the catastrophic devastation predicted as a result of man-made climate change.

Forecasts that Canada’s polar bear population would significantly decline due to global warming have been proven completely inaccurate. The latest study shows that the Hudson Bay area polar bear population has remained steady at around 1000 – the same number found by a 2004 study, confounding the “doom-and-gloom” predictions of environmentalists about the demise of the polar bear (which) have failed to come true,” reports the Canadian Press.

“We are not observing these impacts right at this moment in time. And it is not a crisis situation as a lot of people would like the world to believe it is,” said Drikus Gissing, Nunavut’s director of wildlife management.

Gissing added that their survey of Polar Bear population could yield twice as many as earlier predicted.

Meanwhile, Live Science reports, “A new study using satellite mapping technology reveals there are twice as many emperor penguins in Antarctica than previously thought.”

Using state of the art technology that can single out penguins from other birds, researchers counted almost 600,000 penguins around the coastal regions, almost double the previous estimate of 270,000-350,000.

But it’s not just wildlife that is contradicting the claims of climate change alarmists, the environment itself is not behaving as global warming data models predicted.

Satellite data produced by French researchers shows that glaciers in the western Himalayan region are “putting on mass” rather than melting completely as doomsayers had warned in a 2007 UN IPCC report, which claimed that most of the region would be ice-free by 2035.

Despite the findings, BBC News, an ardent promoter of climate change propaganda, blamed the thickening of the glaciers on man-made global warming. When the earth last showed similar activity back in the 1970′s, the same scientific establishment, which now pushes anthropogenic global warming, blamed the changes on global cooling.

New research from the Arctic’s Bering Sea also found that ice is thickening.

“The amount of floating ice in the Arctic’s Bering Sea – which had long been expected to retreat disastrously by climate-alarmist organizations such as Greenpeace – reached all-time record high levels last month, according to US researchers monitoring the area using satellites,” reports The Register.

The article points to a 1999 Greenpeace prediction that sea ice in the area “could vanish altogether,” another piece of alarmist propaganda debunked by reality.

Despite a multitude of data that continually serves to eviscerate the pseudo-science behind man-made global warming, illustrating again that the earth has gone through natural warming and cooling cycles since its very genesis, climate change snake oil salesmen like NASA’s James Hansen, who this week will call for a global tax on CO2 emissions, continue to ignore real science in pursuit of their political agenda to exploit heartfelt environmental concerns for profit and power.
