The five sages of Mann

Today is curiously enough the day of 5th columnists report.

No doubt the media will feed off this for some time as will the web. I hate this kind of staged stuff.

Here is a thread to post your thoughts on.

    “Five Failures of Mann”

    There – fixed it.

    Just wonderful and i got a good laugh!

  3. mitigatedsceptic says:

    Yes, indeed! This sums up the nature of post-normal science very well. Faith – good. Facts – bad.

  4. Watch the video from this news release on the new IPCC report

    Apparently We are both warming and cooling the planet from our emissions and steve sherwon (Australian scientist)says they don’t know how big the cooling effect will be but if china stops emitting pollutants the masking of the warming will be removed and the earth will heat even further!

    A catch 22 situation?

    Apparently we should believe this report because there are over 900 peer reviewed studies and this document is the most scrutinised report ..ever.
    It is based on 9200 scientific studies, more than three quarters of which were published since 2007.
    Some math

    Apparently ..9200 studies contributed into the IPCC 5 report -minus the 900 peer reviewed research articles = 8,300mnon peer reviewed studies went into the IPCC 5 report??

    The report concludes “with high confidence” that more than 90 per cent of the extra heat generated in between 1971 and 2010 has been stored in the world’s oceans.

    United States Secretary of State John Kerry said: “This is yet another wake up call. Those who deny the science or choose excuses over action are playing with fire. This is science, these are facts, and action is our only option.”

    It is based on 9200 scientific studies, more than three quarters of which were published since 2007.

    The report is all over the news now..

    Oh. the reporter starts of with. ..A possible 6 deg increase in temps!!

    Dr Canadell a guest speaker on our news now via video

    Apparently 800 people had summarised 10,000 papers..

    The global slowdown is climate variability

    The heat hiding in the ocean..pacific

    Scientists come voluntarily to produce the report ( so it must be good !)
    They don’t get paid?

    Mitigation . reduce Co2 emissions by 60% by 2050 to keep temps at 2 deg c increase only
    Remove C02 completely ? ! with technologies not invented yet
    Zero C02 emission targets ultimately..

  5. Sparks says:

    What would the IPCC’s catastrophic global warming models be like if they removed the so-called human signal?

    Would there be an obvious cooling trend? because Not only are their models running way too hot, If they removed the large anthropogenic forcing and only used natural forcing wouldn’t that be enough to explain any warming, the current 10-15 year pause and cooling.

    I mean If they cant explain the observational pause/cooling then they cant explain the warming, they certainly cant be 95% confident that the temperature variations are caused by human emissions, and all the resultant claims derived from their confidence have to be bogus too.

  6. How can 10,000 research papers and 900 scientists be wrong?

    Is it sheep syndrome or carbon dioxide obsession that drives this AGW movement?

    Apparently the science is 95% correct.. …

    I’ll put my money on the remaining 5% of science …that will prove they are wrong by a long shot..

    So far the heat is in the pacific and the Chinese are keeping us cool from their aerosols and particulate emissions..
    I wonder if they will resort to climate engineering to save face
    You know put stuff in the stratosphere and say we fixed the problem

    I reckon this bunch will resort to anything to be proven correct

    Have they even noted the sun will quieten in the decades to come..

    Wonder what the explanation will be when the Arctic ice growth recommences..

    Doesn’t heat rise. How long will the heat remain under the surface?

    How 97% of climate prognosticators can be 95% confident their models are right, when statistics show 100% of them got the whole of this century wrong (all exaggerating warming), is a mystery if not a total joke. vs observations

    “The Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) is being released in four parts between September 2013 and November 2014.”

    A summery for a report that has not been completed yet??????

  10. Tenuk says:

    AR5 will be the last attempt by the green lunies who want to set the clock back a couple of hundred years. It’s full of half-truths and downright lies, So to get things into perspective chill and enjoy the Sunday smile-athon…
