The IPCC seems to be long on speculation and short on evidence.

    From point no.10:

    Bottom line.
    The IPCC once again reports that there is little basis for claiming that drought, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes have increased, much less increased due to GHGs.

    So finger-pointing is redundant.

    While some might maintain that ignorance of physics does not impact political ability, it most certainly impacts the ability of non-scientific politicians to deal with nominally science-based issues. The gap in understanding is also an invitation to malicious exploitation. Given the democratic necessity for non-scientists to take positions on scientific problems, belief and faith inevitably replace understanding, though trivially oversimplified false narratives serve to reassure the non-scientists that they are not totally without scientific ‘understanding.’ The issue of global warming offers numerous examples of all of this.

    another load of cod’s wallop from the screeching purveyors of doom, aka the LSM. Even the UN has toned down the end-of-the-world nonsense over the years as the whole house of cards collapsed about their feet.

    Here in the US it’s all about keeping people away from the fact that one party has gone totally evil and nuts before the nearby mid-term election – “HEY! Look! squirrel!!” Elsewhere I guess it’s to keep minds off the cultural wreckage in Europe from the sand savages imported by morons.

    BTW… take a read of the NIPCC report in rebuttal to all the pearl clutching and screeching about the end of the world is nigh. [climatechangereconsidered.org/]

    Me thinks the IPCC has been long on speculation and short on evidence since day one. I would call them writers of speculative fiction, but that would be a ghastly insult to most any author around.

    If we get a run of weak solar cycles, as seems to be happening, global weather/climate will be affected one way or another.

    IPCC sounds more and more like a …

    Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison has rejected a rapid global phase-out of coal-fired power and declared his government will not be bound by a landmark climate study, amid concern its blueprint for curbing temperature rises would see the “lights go out on the east coast of Australia”.

    “If we take coal out of our ­energy system, the lights will go out on the east coast of Australia — it’s as simple as that,” Treasurer Josh Frydenberg said.

    But let’s not try to suppress this kind of nonsense. The more noise, the more skepticism. When we’re all thinking the same thing, we’re in trouble.

    UN-IPCC has failed to show causative observational evidence of CO2 ‘warming up the planet’, and certainly their linkage to anthropological fossil fuel usage is merely circumstantial at best and mythological at worst, and their attempt to tax the Western nations by putting a price on CO2 (as a carbon tax) to prevent a yet to be seen ‘climate catastrophe’, is both premature and irrational.
