the Dam is Cracking

The dam is cracking

Andrew Neil | 09:42 UK time, Tuesday, 26 January 2010

The bloggers are all over the UN IPCC 2007 report, the bible of global warming, which predicted all manner of dire outcomes for our planet unless we got a grip on rising temperatures -- and it seems to be crumbling in some pretty significant areas.

The dam began to crack towards the end of last year when leaked e-mails from one of the temples of global warming, the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia, suggested that a few sleights of hand were being deployed to hide facts inconvenient to the global warming case. An official investigation into these e-mails is on-going.

But the flood gates really opened after the IPCC had to withdraw its claim that the Himalayan glaciers would likely all have melted by 2035, maybe even sooner.

This turned out to have no basis in scientific fact, even though everything the IPCC produces is meant to be rigorously peer-reviewed, but simply an error recycled by the WWF, which the IPCC swallowed whole.

The truth, as seen by India's leading expert in glaciers, is that "Himalayan glaciers have not in anyway exhibited, especially in recent years, an abnormal annual retreat."

So the 40% of the world's population that relies on the seven major river systems supplied by these glaciers can sleep a little more soundly in the knowledge that their water won't run out in 25 years after all.

Then at the weekend another howler was exposed. The IPCC 2007 report claimed that global warming was leading to an increase in extreme weather, such as hurricanes and floods. Like its claims about the glaciers, this was also based on an unpublished report which had not been subject to scientific scrutiny -- indeed several experts warned the IPCC not to rely on it.

The author, who didn't actually finish his work until a year after the IPCC had used his research, has now repudiated what he sees has its misuse of his work.

His conclusion: "There is insufficient evidence to claim a statistical link between global warming and catastrophe loss."
Yet it was because of this -- now unproved -- link that the British government signed up to a $100 billion transfer from rich to poor countries to help them cope with a supposed increase in floods and hurricanes.

It was also central to many of the calculations in Britain's Stern Report, which might now need to be substantially revised.

Now after Climate-gate, Glacier-gate and Hurricane-gate -- how many "gates" can one report contain? -- comes Amazon-gate. The IPCC claimed that up to 40% of the Amazonian forests were risk from global warming and would likely be replaced by "tropical savannas" if temperatures continued to rise.

This claim is backed up by a scientific-looking reference but on closer investigation turns out to be yet another non-peer reviewed piece of work from the WWF. Indeed the two authors are not even scientists or specialists on the Amazon: one is an Australian policy analyst, the other a freelance journalist for the Guardian and a green activist.

The WWF has yet to provide any scientific evidence that 40% of the Amazon is threatened by climate change -- as opposed to the relentless work of loggers and expansion of farms.

Every time I have questioned our politicians about global warming they have fallen back on the mantra that "2,500 scientists can't be wrong", referring to the vast numbers supposedly behind the IPCC consensus.

But it is now clear that the majority of those involved in the IPCC process are not scientists at all but politicians, bureaucrats, NGOs and green activists.

They may -- or may not -- still be right or wrong but what has become clear in the past couple of months is that, contrary to what many leaders have claimed, the science as promulgated by the IPCC is very far from "settled" and that there are important questions still to ask. The mainstream media has been slow to do this.

The bloggers, too easily dismissed in the past, have set the pace with some real scoops -- and some of the mainstream media is now rushing to catch up.

The sceptics may be about to get their first scalp. Rajendra Pachauri, the IPCC chairman often wrongly described in the media as the world's leading climate scientist (he's actually a railway engineer), at first attacked those who questioned the IPCC's alarming glacier prediction as "arrogant" and believers in "voodoo science".

He's since had to retract the prediction but can't quite manage an apology -- and is now under mounting pressure in his Indian homeland to resign.

No error, it was deliberate the WWF is NWO ask the royal bilderberger who sits on its throne and his son screaming for a global tax to send us into the dark ages for their profit and power!

Anything with World in the title is pretty much a NWO fake charity or quango.

Eugenics and the theft of third world resources lies behind much of this.

Plenty more from where he came from and the USA is talking about a ban on free speech for global warming realists and Millishit has declared `war` on truth seekers!

So said the Observer - NWO paper.

Scrobs... said...

When is anyone going to expose the whole issue as market creation in which politicians can pretend to 'be doing something', and fundholders can make millions purely by buying and selling the same politicians' vanity cards.

Presumably never, as long as money can be screwed out of gullible people in Whitehall, who should know better.

While wankers like Ed Milliband (Minister for climate change&silly walks)are earning a good living out of this scam we have a real fight on our hands.

Ivor Bigot said...

Just been reading Pachauri's biog. He did indeed start out in engineering, but seems to have drifted pretty rapidly from the "doing" side of things to the "talking about other people doing things" arena. His current position is merely the most prominent in a long line of hot air (oooh! see what I did there?) generating posts.

As anon 10:48 said, plenty more where he came from. This is more about convincing the sheeple than punishing such self-serving dickheads.

It might help the IPCC cause, if they did not have an Asian Wurzel Gummidge fucking lookalike at the helm !

Corrupt cunt.

Private Widdle said...

Why hasn't at least one MSM journo asked Bluebottle Junior to point out the accurate bits of the IPCC report? Four- fucking FOUR- of the major "threats" have been shown to be based on nothing more than hearsay, supposition, exaggeration and lying. So where are the accurate bits? And if there are any accuracies (which I very much doubt) why the need to pad out the report with the dross-masquerading-as-science so recently exposed?

Anybody else think that we might see bloodshed before long? The melons' scam has been exposed- they're fucked, but they've invested much time and effort into brainwashing the world with this fucking shite, the 100 billion handover is a precursor to worldwide Fabian fuckwitted wage & welfare slavery, taxed to the ying-yang in the name of a "Green" agenda and all kind of nannying authoritarian bullshit imposed upon us. You think it's bad now? Just wait- and yet, stuff like this from Brillo gives me a scintilla of hope. But the bastards are not going to give in easily. "Carbon-trading" (FFS) is going to make a few billionaires happy, and the society which will be necessary for that to work won't be anything other than a statist's fucking wet dream. There have been enough examples already of just how fucking vicious the politicised police and other wnnabe gauleiters can be when given time, money and a little bit of power. I never dreamed that there would be so many proto-Nazi cunts in this country, but they're out there in their thousands. The carbon billionaires, the melons and the gauleiters- there's going to be a hell of a fucking scrap and some people will get hurt.

The Fabian cunts- they've so much to answer for.

To be fair, Andrew Neil blogged all of the above on 26th Jan. Look under headline 'The Dam is Cracking'. Recognise that OH?!

Doh! I see now that this blog is linked to the Andrew Neil blog, my bad...it was somebody mentioning that no mainstream commentators have picked up on this that set me off. I'll go and stand in the corner for a bit...

it's just like the dodgy dossier.....

they will say or do anything to get thier way.........

whether it is correct or not is immaterial.........

white europeans- especially english-are responsible for every ill in the world......and will be made to pay.......still what's £100 billion?

let's just print it.........++++++++


WHY IS IT THAT UK POLITICIANS NEVER SEEM TO WORK IN THE INTERESTS OF OUR PEOPLE?

vain fucking fairies running around the globe pretending to be 'someone'...........

talk about amnesia......they really do need to be fired.

Dark Lochnagar said...

Good post as usual OH. Before we decemate our economy further by paying 'green taxes', this whole question has to be sorted out once and for all. I don't disagree that it makes sense to use alternative resources wherever possible, if for no better reason than cost, but this should not be to the detriment of our society.

Old Holborn said...

this scam has already cost us billions. It is THEFT pure and simple.

African dictators are buying learjets with MY money sent by Brown to stop them walking 20 miles a day to find water due to "global warming". they've ALWAYS walked 20 miles to water because they hate the Umfufu tribe, their neighbours.

I am Stan said...

Holby-the Umfufu are a very popular tribe,in fact they are well known for their hospitality and beer brewing.

The West started this game,if they want the rest of the world to play then pay!

Fact is the richest western industrialised nations want places like Africa/South America/Asia to arrest their development under the Global warming mantra that they have invented thus rightly or wrongly compensation is expected.

This is fucking hilarious, another I hate the hand that feeds me racist rant by Stan!

First shit for brains, the money NEVER sees the poor in the third world, the money is used to prop up quango's and fake `charities`, as OH says, it pays for tin pot dictators that will sell their poor peoples resourses (and in the past, the people themselfs) out for peanuts and if the warlords don't play ball then the NWO banking and corporate military industrial complex goons fund the opposing warlord.

EVERYONE suffers at this cartels hands, if you think it is some Marxist agenda then you will be severly dissapointed, as the people running this racket are the same people who own the unrepayable debt the third world has, so you think the same people running the carbon bulldust have the third worlds interests at heart?

AS for why white working class people should pay for this I don't know, white working class have never benifitted from it, only the elites and today almost none of them are white!

You are nothing but an utter ignorant, hatefull, racist subversive.

Get the hell out of here you Nazi.

Stanton Glantz, the UCSF's largest Big Pharma donation getter, often wrongly described in the media as one of the world's leading anti-tobacco experts (he is actually a mechanical engineer),

... and then go on about the SHS Fraud and the Helena Heart Attack Lie and the whole lot of it, no different than the AGW Fraud - except the SHS Fraud - came first - and was ignored - and still is - and sits at the root cause of why the AGW Fraud became believable - because the grand-daddy fraud of them all, that of the SHS Fraud, was never questioned - and should have been.

Everyone pay up your carbon taxes now, "exerpts say" and "save the children", along that line.

BBC involvement in pushing AGW scam could have something to do with the fact that their pension fund is

Bishop Hill has a link to this article where an actual hydrologist shoots the glacier claims through like a teabag.

"As we have calculated, melting glaciers contribute an estimated 1.2% (perhaps factor of 2 uncertain) of total runoff of three of the most important drainages, the Indus, Ganges, and Brahmaputra combined.

Pachauri is one goofy, suicide cult looking mofo.
