ChooChoo Chorus Continues Climate Chaos Charade

josh_raymondo_scrTONY EASTLEY: The United Nations’ chief climate science body says the global warming trend is “unmistakeable” and it’s defended the science behind the conclusion, saying it’s robust.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is due to hand down its next major report in September.

More than 250 lead authors of the report who are in Hobart for a meeting have vowed to deliver “scientifically defensible” findings when their AR5 Report  is released in just over eight months.

The IPCC chairman Rajendra Pachauri says there’s no doubt last week’s extreme heat in Australia is part of a global warming trend. He’s speaking to environment reporter Sarah Clarke.

RAJENDRA PACHAURI: If you look at the trend then I think that’s pretty unmistakeable and any proper analysis would tell you that we are heading in that direction.

SARAH CLARKE: The most recent World Bank report and an assessment by the Global Carbon Project has indicated that the way we’re going, we’re on track for a four to six degree temperature rise by the turn of the century. Is that the case?

RAJENDRA PACHAURI: It would be anywhere from 1.1 degrees Celsius to 6.4 degree Celsius. Now this depends on the kind of economic growth you get, a whole lot of other drivers that would essentially lead to climate change.

But if you’re going to end up towards the upper end, then that clearly is a very, very serious outcome that we’re looking at.

    just who are the deniers again? ?????

    “It would be anywhere from 1.1 degrees Celsius to 6.4 degree Celsius.”

    Thanks, Raj. Anywhere from “I don’t care”, to “We’re all dead.”

    So, 95% (or 99%) certainty is “something will happen, you just don’t know what.”

    Connolly just worked very hard to show how, beneath the El Ninos and La Ninas, since 1978 we have had a consistent 1.5C/century rise, no acceleration (see today). Cognitive dissonance: the new reason the eco-green heads are exploding (not exasperation with us skeptics).

    But, really, when, pray, do we drop off either the 1.4 or the 6.4 C Scenario?

    Rhetorical, perhaps: moving the goalposts means, “Never!”, or at least “Never before I retire with my pension.”

  3. Roger Andrews says:

    According to the AR5 draft Summary for Policymakers the projected increase is between 0.2 and 4.8C, not between 1.1 and 6.4C:

    ” Global-mean surface temperatures for 2081–2100 (relative to 1986–2005) for the CO2 concentration driven RCPs will likely be in the 5–95% range of the CMIP5 climate models, i.e., 0.2°C–1.8°C (RCP2.6), 1.0°C–2.6°C (RCP4.5), 1.3°C–3.2°C (RCP6.0), 2.6°C–4.8°C (RCP8.5) (see Figure SPM.5, 54 Table SPM.2). {8.5.3, Figure 8.20, Figure 8.21, 12.4.1, Figure 12.8}”

    Maybe Patchy hasn’t gotten around to reading the draft yet.

    Go to WUWT for comments/records of participants 200 years ago in Sydney on Australia’s current heat wave. Our diarist, a marine officer, and many others from the First Fleet observed that flying foxes and larrikeets were expiring from the heat in very large numbers. One latter day commenter doubted that the officer’s thermometer (which was from a top instrument-maker of the day) had been properly calibrated; another asked if the bats and larrikeets had been calibrated?! You better believe it, it is VERY unusual for native animals to be killed by heat in large numbers.

    Can you believe this guy ?

    He hasn’t a clue !

  6. Why is it that people won’t use actual data when talking about the temperature increase that has occurred since reliable worldwide instrumental temperature readings were available around 1850? In the complete absence of real-world evidence of man-made global warming, and using the MetOffice’s own global temperature data set, world mean temperature is showing every sign of continuing on upwards at the very gentle unalarming rate of just 0.4degC per century. See:

    http://www.thetruthaboutclimatechange.org/tempsworld.html

    Note that in 160 years the 11 year running mean (red line) has never strayed outside a + or -0.25degC cyclic variation superimposed on top of the 0.4degC/century long term increase. Now that this cyclic variation shows every sign of turning downwards, as predicted by those of us who have long believe it to be a natural ocean-related ~67 year oscillation, we must pity the alarmists who managed to create fear and alarm during what they assumed was a alarming and permanent man-induced upturn from 1970 to 2005 rather than just the rising phase of a natural ocean cycle .

    Over the next 10 years it is increasingly likely that they will have to live with the fact that their theories were plain wrong and were never supported by real observational evidence.
