Latest IPCC Global Warming report: alarmists running amok

By Aleksander Boyd

London 06.04.07 | And so it concludes the latest report released by the UN's IPCC:

Although science to provide policymakers with information about climate change impacts and adaptation potential has improved since the Third Assessment, it still leaves many important questions to be answered. The chapters of the Working Group II report include a number of judgements about priorities for further observation and research, and this advice should be considered seriously...

Read "give us more money so that we can continue with the lucrative business of terrorizing the ignorant and the gullible, so that you -the report is addressed to policy makers- can tax people to hell and beyond."

The 'scientific report' contains truly remarkable phrases, such as "Adaptation will be necessary to address impacts resulting from the warming which is already unavoidable due to past emissions." This little sentence sums up rather neatly the intellectual dishonesty of the people involved in drafting the report, for it implies that global warming is a phenomena caused, determinedly, by anthropogenic past emissions. This is a lie and is not supported by evidence, in fact it disregards the geological and paleoclimate records and the very many periods of warming and cooling undergone in earth's history, when anthropogenic causes did not even exist.

Interestingly the report states that poor nations will be hit the hardest by global warming. Presumably only strict adherence to development policies proposed by these 'experts' will minimize the impact on the world's poorest. I would have thought I had seen racism in some of its crudest expressions but this certainly tops the list.

As hope is the last thing to die, one can only hope than some common sense will hit policy makers and this report will be treated for what it is; nothing but a statement of fact regarding climate change -as if it were a new discovery. Climate is always changing and no amount of taxes, conclusions based on resentment, hyperbole or, more mundanely, leftist bullshit will change the course of nature, thank heavens...
