CHRISTOPHER BOOKER Sunday Telegraph 6/4/2014

How did the IPCC's alarmism take everyone in for so long?

When future generations come to look back on the alarm over global
warming that seized the world towards the end of the 20th century,
much will puzzle them as to how such a scare could have arisen. They
will wonder why there was such a panic over a 0.4 deg rise in
global temperatures between 1975 and 1998, when similar rises between
1860 and 1880 and 1910 and 1940 had given no cause for concern. They
will see these modest rises as just part of a general warming that
began at the start of the 19th century, as the world emerged from the
Little Ice Age, when the Earth had grown cooler for 400 years.

They will be struck by the extent to which this scare relied on the
projections of computer models, which then proved to be hopelessly
wrong when, in the years after 1998, their predicted rise in
temperature came virtually to a halt. But in particular they will be
amazed by the almost religious reverence accorded to that strange
body, the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
(IPCC), which by then will be recognised as having never really been a
scientific body at all, but a political pressure group. It had been
set up in the 1980s by a small band of politically persuasive
scientists who had become fanatically committed to the belief that,
because carbon dioxide levels were rising, global temperatures must
inevitably follow; an assumption that the evidence would increasingly
show was mistaken.

Five times between 1990 and 2014 the IPCC published three massive
volumes of technical reports - another emerged last week - and each
time we saw the same pattern. Each was supposedly based on thousands
of scientific studies, many funded to find evidence to support the
received view that man-made climate change was threatening the world
with disaster - hurricanes, floods, droughts, melting ice, rising sea
levels and the rest. But each time what caught the headlines was a
brief "Summary for Policymakers", carefully crafted by governments and
a few committed scientists to hype up the scare by going much further
than was justified by the thousands of pages in the technical reports
themselves.

Each time it would emerge just how shamelessly these Summaries had
distorted the actual evidence, picking out the scary bits, which
themselves often turned out not to have been based on proper science
at all. The most glaring example was the IPCC's 2007 report, which hit
the headlines with those wildly alarmist predictions that the
Himalayan glaciers might all be gone by 2035; that global warming
could halve African crop yields by 2050; that droughts would destroy
40 per cent of the Amazon rainforest. Not until 2010 did some of us
manage to show that each of these predictions, and many more, came not
from genuine scientific studies but from scaremongering propaganda
produced by green activists and lobby groups (shown by one exhaustive
analysis to make up nearly a third of all the IPCC's sources).

Most of the particularly alarmist predictions came from a report by
the IPCC's Working Group II. This was concerned with assessing the
impact on the world of those changes to the climate predicted by the
equally flawed computer models relied on by Working Group I, which was

charged with assessing the science of climate change. The technical
report published last week was its sequel, also from Working Group II,
and we can at once see, from its much more cautious treatment of the
subjects that caused such trouble last time, that they knew they
couldn't afford any repeat of that disaster.

Looking at the Summary for Policymakers, however, we see how the
scaremongers are still playing their same old game. On pages 12-14,
for instance, they are still trying to whip up fears about extreme
weather events, killer heatwaves, vanishing tropical islands, massive
crop failures and so on, although little of this is justified by the
report itself, and even less by the evidence of the real world, where
these things are no more happening as predicted than the temperature
rises predicted by their computer models.

This latest report has aroused markedly less excitement than did its
hysterical predecessor in 2007. They have cried wolf once too often.
The only people still being wholly taken in, it seems - apart from the
usual suspects in the media - are all those mindless politicians still
babbling on about how in Paris next year they are finally going to get
that great global agreement which, if only we put up enough wind farms
and taxes, will somehow enable us to stop the climate changing.

They can dream on. But alas, the rest of us must still pay the price
for their dreams.

Forget global warming and melting polar caps - groundwater extraction is causing cities to SINK beneath sea level
Ground is dropping up to 10 times faster than the sea level is rising in coastal megacities, a new study says
Scientists at Deltares Research Institute in Utrecht studied subsidence in five coastal cities, including Jakarta, New Orleans and Bangkok
North Jakarta has sunk four metres in the last 35 years - a fall of 10 to 20cm per year and experts have called on governments to take action
Land subsidence is contributing to larger, longer and deeper floods
Total damage due to subsidence worldwide is estimated at billions of dollars a year and is set to increase

A truly obscene piece of thinking. It does matter what is true.

Sadly, you could attribute that line of flawed thinking to so many people,who want to have some sort of power over other people.

Savile, Blalr, Clifford, Murdoch, Brookes........., just in very recent history in the UK.... It really is an endless list, if you start to go worldwide..

Re: Climate Change - the Six-Year Cover-Up by the BBC of how they deliberately lied about global warming

Post by Angelique on 04.05.15 15:45

I saw a programme on yee bbc. a while ago regarding an interview with Humphreys and a Professor Lovelock about "climate change". His theory was the same as mine which is "adapt of die" but he goes on to speak of adapting cities ?  Whereas I think we should adapt to the climate and grow appropriate food for the conditions that we have.

It is available to see on-line but I can't bring it over as most of it is video which I can't access because of java script and my mac wont do it.

So I am bringing the Telegraph article instead which I have found.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/science/science-news/10752606/We-should-give-up-trying-to-save-the-world-from-climate-change-says-James-Lovelock.html


[size=31]We should give up trying to save the world from climate change, says James Lovelock[/size]

The scientist and inventor James Lovelock claims we should stop trying to save the planet from global warming and instead retreat to climate controlled cities








Saving the planet from climate change is ‘beyond our ability’ and we should stop wasting time trying to tackle global warming, a leading scientist has claimed

James Lovelock, who first detected CFCs in the atmosphere and proposed the Gaia hypotheses, claims society should retreat to ‘climate-controlled cities’ and give up on large expanses of land which will become uninhabitable.

Lovelock, who has just published his latest book A Rough Ride To The Future, claims we should be ‘strengthening our defences and making a sustainable retreat.’

“We’re reaching an age in history where you can no longer predict the future with any hope of success.

“We should give up vainglorious attempts to save the world.
“Britain is no longer a world power and we need to leave such schemes to the USA, Japan or China. We should spend out efforts adapting Britain to fight climate change.”
The latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is expected to say the world will need a ‘Plan B’ because it is unlikely countries will reduce carbon emissions in time.

In March the IPCC said that global warming would increase flooding, storm surges, droughts and heatwaves.

Violent conflicts and food shortages were also forecast to increase over coming decades due to rising temperatures, while a growing number of animal and marine species will face increased risk of extinction.

Scientists said that by taking immediate steps to reduce carbon emissions over the coming decades, there could be a reduction in potential consequences by the end of the century.

In his new book Lovelock writes: “We may have wasted valuable time, energy and resources by trying to grapple with climate change on a global scale.

“It sounds good to try to save the planet, but in reality we are not thinking of saving Gaia, we are thinking of saving Earth for us, or for our nation.

“The idea of ‘saving the planet’ is a foolish extravagance of romantic Northern ideologues and probably much beyond our ability.

“In a changing climate cities are most less vulnerable to external heat than our individuals. If most of us lived in cities, as it seems we soon will do, the regulation of the climate of these cities might be far easier, more economic and safer option in a hot climate than the regulation by geoengineering of the whole planet. “

He also claimed that life on Earth could move away from organic creatures towards computerised life-forms

“I think like all organisms on Earth our species has a limited lifespan,” he said.

“If we can somehow merge with our electronic creations in a larger scale endosymbiosis, it may provide a better next step in the evolution of humanity and Gaia.”

However Lovelock adds a cautionary warning. “I must admit an empathetic dread for some unfortunately future person whose body becomes connected to one of more of the ubiquitous social networks.

“I can imagine no punishment more severe than having my still comparatively clear mind overtaken by the spam of hucksters and the never-ceasing gossip of the Internet.”

Completely wrong, I'm afraid, @ roy rovers

In your haste to report this news, you clearly didn't read the report fully, as it merely said that 36.7C (97F) today was the highest July temperature ever recorded at Heathrow Airport (only).

Look further on in the report, and you'll see that in one town (Gravesend, Kent): 

However, by Wednesday afternoon the town could only muster a relatively paltry 32C – eclipsed by large swaths of southeast England and a long way short of its 38.1C (100F) record, which was set in 2003.

So there, the temperature failed to beat the previous record by over 6 degrees C.

The majority of climate scientists agree that there has been absolutely no global warming since 1998 - 17 years ago, and some argue that there has been a very slight cooling since then.

The whole carbon dioxide and man-made global warming scare house of cards collapses when real scientists have established that global warming causes increased carbon dioxide and not the other way round - the records are clear.

And if man-made warming were true, why have all the planets been getting warmer in the past 50 years?

Pope joins the EU in a sad world of make-believe

What has a Papal Encyclical calling on the world to end its use of
fossil fuels and to pray to God for the success of the global "climate
summit" in December got in common with the Greek euro crisis, the
ominous rift between the West and Russia, and the shambles Europe is
making over the desperation of African and Syrian refugees to find
safety this side of the Mediterranean? They are all different aspects
of the two greatest acts of political make-believe of our time, so
all-pervasive that it is hard for us to grasp just how much effect
they are having on all our lives.

When future historians come to look back on our age, few things will
puzzle them more than the extent to which our politics became so
dominated and bedevilled by two belief-systems, each based on an
obsessive attempt to force into being an immensely complicated
political construct which defied economic, psychological and
scientific reality.


One of these was the peculiar way in which Europe's politicians, with
full support from the US, had set out to unite their continent under a
form of supranational government unlike anything the world had seen
before. The other was the way those same politicians fell for the idea
not just that human activities were disastrously changing Earth's
climate, but that by taking the most drastic measures they could
somehow change it back again.


Although for quite a time these two belief systems seemed to carry all
before them, each was essentially based on a fantasy view of the
world; and it is in the nature of trying to act out a fantasy that it
must eventually overreach itself, to the point where it collides
unpleasantly with reality.

The essence of the "European" fantasy was not just that it could
gradually weld all Europe together in "ever closer union" by
overriding and eliminating the kind of nationalism which had led to
wars; but that it could continually expand its own "empire". We now
see in all directions how that sense of national interest cannot be
eliminated.

We see it in the desperation of the Greeks to escape from the trap
created by forcing them, through corruption and dishonesty, into the
euro. We see it in how the EU's reckless bid to absorb Ukraine into
its empire aroused that sense of Russian nationalism which drove the
Crimeans into voting to rejoin the country where they felt they
belonged. We see it in the sense of national self-interest which makes
it impossible for EU countries to agree on how to deal with that flood
of refugees from across the sea.

The attempt to create a Europe at one with itself, living prosperously
and happily under a new kind of unelected government, has led it to
become such a sad, unhappy, divided place, economically in decline
compared with the outside world, ruled by a strange form of government
it no longer trusts, respects or understands.

Similarly, the last desperate throw by the EU and the US to achieve a
world agreement next December to "halt climate change" is not going to
succeed, not just because the "science" on which it is based is so
increasingly questionable, but because the emerging powers of the
East, led by India and China, are simply not prepared to go along with
it. If the West wishes to commit economic suicide, so be it. In their
own national interest, they are not willing to follow.

In fact, what we are seeing here is a geopolitical shift of huge
proportions. So lost is the West in its bubbles of self-deceiving
fantasy that the hegemony it so long exercised over the rest of the
world is passing to the world outside it, to India and China, even, in
its own way, to Russia, still a nuclear power which can prevent us
pushing too hard in our support for a bankrupt Ukrainian dictatorship,
and which also still supplies Europe with a third of the gas it needs
to continue functioning.

How forlorn in light of all this looks that would-be well-meaning
300-page document in which the Pope, under the spell of his chief
scientific adviser, a fanatical German climate activist called Hans
Joachim Schellnhuber, calls for an end to use of the very fossil fuels
which keep the Vatican's own lights on.. In asking us to pray for that
global climate treaty, Pope Francis solemnly trots out all those
familiar plaints about "melting polar ice caps", "rising sea levels",
unprecedented droughts, "extreme weather events" and the rest of that
greenie litany which has no basis in honest science whatever.

The outside world is no longer listening to this claptrap. But it is
not just the world outside the West which is beginning to call the
shots. Reality itself is now knocking loudly at the door.


Spring flowers saw nature back to 'normal'

A final tailpiece, now that the hedges of our Somerset countryside are
studded with creamy elderflowers, on what for many has been this
year's wondrous spring and early summer.

Having observed the flowering times of our hedgerow shrubs for many
decades, I have noted before how, when the blossoming of the
blackthorn, hawthorn ("May") and elder all moved forward, sometimes
spectacularly so, we were told that this was clear evidence of "global
warming". But although this year, as last, they still came into flower
slightly earlier than their "traditional" dates (in the second halves
of April, May and June respectively), they stayed in flower even
longer than usual.

Although the frozen firework displays of the hawthorn appeared in
mid-May, they lingered on well into June. But It can't have been
rising temperatures at work here, since 2015 has scarcely brought us
continuous heat waves.

Perhaps they have just been enjoying all the extra plant food supplied
by rising levels of that dreadful, "polluting" CO2 the Pope wants to
ban.

Article from Christopher Booker in The Sunday Telegraph dated 26th July 2015.

I meant to put this up earlier but have been a bit busy.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/comment/11763272/How-Arctic-ice-has-made-fools-of-all-those-poor-warmists.html

There are two videos to watch within the article.

How Arctic ice has made fools of all those poor warmists

The belief that the ice was vanishing has been for the warmists the ultimate poster-child for their cause



Two events last week brought yet further twists to one of the longest-running farces of our modern world. One was the revelation by the European Space Agency that in 2013 and 2014, after years when the volume of Arctic ice had been diminishing, it increased again by as much as 33 per cent. The other was that Canadian scientists studying the effect of climate change on Arctic ice from an icebreaker had to suspend their research, when their vessel was called to the aid of other ships trapped in the thickest summer ice seen in Hudson Bay for 20 years.

For more than a decade now, the belief that, thanks to global warming, Arctic ice was vanishing has been for the warmists the ultimate poster-child for their cause (along with those “vanishing” polar bears). In 2007, with the aid of scientists such as Wieslaw Maslowski and Peter Wadhams, the BBC and others were telling us that the Arctic would be totally “ice free by 2013” (the Independent even cleared its front page to announce that the ice could all have disappeared within weeks).

By 2011, the BBC’s science editor Richard Black was telling us that the ice would “probably be gone within this decade”. In 2012, his colleague Roger Harrabin was reporting that the sea ice was now melting so fast that more had vanished that summer than “at any time since satellite records began”.

So taken in had others been by all these dire predictions, that in 2008 the activist Gordon Lewis Pugh, after speaking at a conference alongside

Al Gore, set out to paddle a kayak to the North Pole – only to have to abort his trip after a few days because “the ice was too thick”. In 2009, the three-man Caitlin expedition, sponsored by a “climate risk” insurance company, and backed by the BBC and the Prince of Wales, set out to walk to the North Pole. Their intention was to measure the thickness of the vanishing ice with an electronic instrument, but it froze so hard that they had to resort to a tape measure. Again, after a few weeks, they had to be airlifted back to a rescue ship because the constantly shifting ice was “too thick”.
In December 2013, the world followed agog the plight of yet another “scientific expedition”, when 52 climate activists, accompanied by reporters from the BBC and the Guardian, sailed into the Antarctic to measure the effects of global warming on its sea-ice. By Christmas their ship was so dangerously trapped by thick, multi-year ice that they had to be helicoptered to a Chinese ship 10 miles away, which itself then got so trapped in ice that they had to be airlifted again to two other ships even further away.

What made all this particularly absurd was that, despite being led by an Australian scientist, they were so taken in by the make-believe that they seemed quite oblivious to the satellite records showing that Antarctic sea-ice had long been expanding to such record levels that these more than matched any decline in the Arctic ice at the other end of the world. But wasn’t the whole point of this warming that it was meant to be “global”?

Of course, the reason why they have all wanted the ice at the poles to melt, not least on the land in Antarctica and Greenland, is that this would bring about their ultimate scare scenario: those sea levels rising by as much as 20 feet, which, as Al Gore showed in his Oscar-winning film An Inconvenient Truth, would flood New York, Shanghai and many of the world’s most populous cities.

But, alas, it just isn’t happening. In recent years there has been more polar ice in the world than at any time since satellite records began in 1979. In the very year they had forecast that the Arctic would be “ice free”, its thickness increased by a third. Polar bear numbers are rising, not falling. Temperatures in Greenland have shown no increase for decades.

The greatest scare story of all simply isn’t turning out as their computer models predicted. And no one has been more dangerously taken in by this silly scare story than the warmists themselves.

Re: Climate Change - the Six-Year Cover-Up by the BBC of how they deliberately lied about global warming

There is also another article within the same edition which is a bit strange.


Three scientists investigating melting Arctic ice may have been assassinated, professor claims

Cambridge Professor Peter Wadhams suspects the deaths of the three scientists were more than just an ‘extraordinary’ coincidence.






A Cambridge Professor has made the astonishing claim that three scientists investigating the melting of Arctic ice may have been assassinated within the space of a few months.

Professor Peter Wadhams said he feared being labelled a “looney” over his suspicion that the deaths of the scientists were more than just an ‘extraordinary’ coincidence.

But he insisted the trio could have been murdered and hinted that the oil industry or else sinister government forces might be implicated.

The three scientists he identified - Seymour Laxon and Katherine Giles, both climate change scientists at University College London, and Tim Boyd of the Scottish Association for marine Science - all died within the space of a few months in early 2013.

Professor laxon fell down a flight of stairs at a New year’s Eve party at a house in Essex while Dr Giles died when she was in collision with a lorry when cycling to work in London. Dr Boyd is thought to have been struck by lightning while walking in Scotland.

• The Victorians would have built a tidal lagoon at Swansea
Prof Wadhams said that in the weeks after Prof Laxon’s death he believed he was targeted by a lorry which tried to force him off the road. He reported the incident to the police.
Asked if he thought hitmen might have been behind the deaths, Prof Wadhams, who is Professor of ocean physics at Cambridge University, told The Telegraph: “Yes. I do believe assassins possibly murdered them but I can see that I would be thought of as a looney for believing this.
"But it’s just very odd coincidence that something like that should happen in such a brief period of time.”
He added: “They [the deaths] were accidents as far as anybody was able to tell but the fact they were clustered like that looked so weird.”
Asked who might have wanted them out the way, he replied: “I can only think of the oil lobby but I don’t think the oil lobby goes around killing people.”
• Mussels 'to become poisonous' through climate change
He admitted it would have been "stupid" to go to the police with his concerns over the three deaths, not least because he was "suspicious" of the authorities - he cited the example of the death of the government’s weapons expert Dr David Kelly.


Prof Wadhams added: “I thought if it was somebody assassinating them could it be one of our people doing it and that would be even more frightening. I thought it would be better not to touch this with a barge pole.”

His suspicions drew outrage on Saturday from Prof Laxon’s partner, who was also a close friend of Dr Giles. When told what Prof Wadhams had said, Fiona Strawbridge, head of e-Learning at UCL, replied: “Good god. All of this is completely outrageous and very distressing.”

• Pacific islander loses bid to be world’s first 'climate change refugee'

The couple had been staying in a friends’ converted mill in the Essex countryside when her partner fell down the stairs in the early hours of New Year’s Day. He died the next day from head injuries.

“It was very steep stairs and I heard Seymour fall,” said Ms Strawbridge, “It is just completely bonkers [to suggest murder].

"I am sure there are some climate scientists who do get trolled and pursued but Seymour wasn’t one of them. I would have known if anybody had been pursuing him.

“Sometimes there are tragic coincidences and you have to accept that.”

I have been a long time lurker on both the 3As and this site for a very long time now but have never been tempted to post until now.

I don't want to join the debate about Climate Change ( not global warming ) ; my job is dependent upon there being such a phenomenon. I would just like to say that Mr Bennett comes across as exceedingly patronising and supercilious when other posters don't agree with his point of view.

I wonder how many other lurkers there are out here who would be reluctant to post because they are afraid of being shot down for having a different view. This isn't the only topic where I have seen this going on.

Carry on the good work - everybody. All opinions are valid. We still live in a free country.

And you probably wonder why nobody new posts on here.
Not sure what school holidays have to do with anything.

Yeah, it does matter. Especially as it was only 2 days ago.

And should you be using a government computer/email address for logging on here?

I am using my iPad to log in.
You can see I have made 4 posts including this one.
Remind me what I posted 2 days ago please. Must have been great if I don't recall it and it hasn't been counted.

You used your other account.

Not only are you using a government email address but you've logged on here specifically to have a go at a member here.

A lot of people would be disciplined at work for pulling a stunt like that.

Oh dear, spot the dropped pronoun meaning the subject doesn't take ownership of their statement.
Now, why would that be i wonder?
