Exposing the biased lying IPCC’s bias and lies

(Weekend blog)

Apologies – this weekend’s blog might be a bit long.

Asking the wrong question gives the wrong answer

Imagine you were given a well-paid position on a government quango whose aim was, for example, to come up with proposals to reduce obesity by taxing high-sugar foods. And imagine your quango position came with almost unlimited expenses and the freedom to go on ‘study trips’ flying first class and staying in luxury hotels and eating in luxury restaurants around the world.

The first problem would be that your committee was assuming high-sugar foods were the cause of obesity and would thus ignore things like sedentary lifestyles, the selling-off of school playing fields, schools avoiding sports due to lack of facilities, Elf and Safety rules and increasingly litigious parents, etc etc

Moreover, what would your committee recommend? Would it propose reducing obesity through education and building more sports facilities if the committee saw that approach had been successful in other countries? Probably not as that would mean your committee members were out of a job and would lose all those wonderful airmiles-collecting luxury trips. What your committee would do are two things:

  1. find examples where increasing taxes on sugar-rich foods had been used and big those up to support its recommendation for increased taxes
  2. recommend that the committee keeps working for many years into the future to supposedly study the effects of the higher taxes on obesity rates

In this way, your committee would both justify its existence and keep its members’ lucrative sinecures going for many more years.

Now let’s look at the IPCC – Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

The IPCC was established in 1988 by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and was later endorsed by the United Nations General Assembly. Membership is open to all members of the WMO and UN. The IPCC produces reports that contribute to the work of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the main international treaty on climate change. The objective of the UNFCCC is to “stabilize greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic (human-induced) interference with the climate system”

IPCC reports cover the “scientific, technical and socio-economic information relevant to understanding the scientific basis of risk of human-induced climate change, its potential impacts and options for adaptation and mitigation.” The IPCC does not carry out original research, nor does it monitor climate or related phenomena itself. Rather, it assesses published literature including peer-reviewed and non-peer-reviewed sources.

So, here are a few things you should have noticed:

  1. the IPCC charter assumes climate change is caused by greenhouse gas emissions
  2. the IPCC charter assumes humans are responsible for the changing climate
  3. the IPCC charter assumes that this supposed ‘anthropogenic interference with the climate system’ is ‘dangerous’
  4. the IPCC doesn’t actually do any research itself – it just reviews research done by other people

Now let’s deal with these four points:

The IPCC charter assumes climate change is caused by greenhouse gas emissions. It therefore ignores the possibility that cyclical climate change is a natural phenomenon that has nothing to do with greenhouse gas emissions:

The IPCC charter assumes humans are responsible for the changing climate and therefore ignores the influence on our climate of variations in solar activity and Milankovitch Cycles. Moreover the IPCC also ignores the fact that CO2 is a trace gas that makes up only 0.002% of our atmosphere and that CO2 levels have been much higher in the past without any detrimental effect on life on Earth

The IPCC charter assumes that this supposed ‘anthropogenic interference with the climate system’ is ‘dangerous’. This thus ignores the beneficial effect of CO2 in improving plant growth which has helped boost crop yields around the world and it ignores the fact that deaths from extreme climate events have fallen by over 95% during the last 100 or so years

The IPCC doesn’t actually do any research itself – it just reviews research done by other people. Hopefully you know that any scientist daring to question the lunatic cult of Man-made Climate Change loses access to government research grants and is probably hounded out of their job by the virtue-signalling, brainwashed social-media mob. Botanist David Bellamy was just the first of many experts sent into exile for thinking ‘wrong-thought’ about climate change. More recently Australian physicist Peter Ridd was recently fired from his teaching post for daring to suggest that damage to the Great Barrier Reef was not as serious as the ecofascists were claiming:

So, most climate research automatically assumes the Earth is warming and that human activity is responsible. Thus the papers the IPCC is reviewing are all preaching the same religion rather than trying to pursue real science.

Hopefully, the above is sufficient to show why the IPCC’s supposed ‘objective’ reports are just bias and lies dressed up as science.

And to cheer us up – here’s something completely different:

    There is one name the constantly comes up in connection with the IPCC. It is Maurice Strong. Here is a link to one of the many articles about him, written by Tim Ball, a well known climate scientist.

    Oh, and crazy Theresa May’s ‘legacy’ Net Zero 2050 target – amongst the first steps on this path will be the outlawing of gas connections to any newly built home!

    Meanwhile – sane, practical China is still counting on coal to keep the lights on and keep its industrialization booming. While it has invested heavily in subsidizing its solar power industry, it realizes it cannot continue with the massive subsidies and has issued draft guidelines to phase them out. Despite having overcapacity and underutilized plants, it is continuing to construct coal-fired plants to ensure that power is available throughout the country and throughout the day.
