This is the kind of over-hyped climate nonsense we can expect from the supposed experts from now on. First the IPCC, now this. The less the climate conforms to their models, the louder they ring their alarm bells, and the more people are turned off by their wailing and gnashing of teeth.

By Chris White at The Daily Caller. Climate expert claims a White House climate report uses cherry-picked data that over exaggerates the risks posed by climate change.

The scientists who produced the White House climate report made studying climate change more difficult, expert says.

A new climate report from the White House suggests climate change will destroy the economy before the end of the century.

A climate change report published Friday contains cherry-picked data that appear designed to warn of the consequences if steps are not taken to mitigate global warming, according to one climate expert.

The scientists who wrote the National Climate Assessment (NCA) used unreliable information that exaggerates the risks global warming poses, University of Colorado Prof. Roger Pielke Jr. noted in a series of tweets.

He fears the report will make it easier for critics to dismiss future climate studies.

    Only if they opt to carpet the country with ineffective wind turbines and solar panels at ruinous expense.

    NOT an extract from the US climate report…the ups and downs of climate variability.

    Studying climate change is the problem – not the solution, especially when the UN IPCC gets involved.

    It is interesting how the climate managed to look after itself until some nutters decided that they knew better than nature and started a religious cult to stroke their egos – unfortunately they didn’t know what they were doing and so made it up as they went along. Their problem now is the made up parts are being shown to have been made up which doesn’t fit the dogma of the church of climatology.

    I am truly shocked that PDT let that screed get out into publication. He must have been distracted is all I can figure.

    As for this wrecking the economy BS… Just how does warmer weather do that exactly?? Apparently everyone with business sense will die in the next couple years along with all the productive engineers and real scientists thus preventing us from coping with changes and taking advantage OF the changes.

    The only thing that WILL crash the economy IMAO is hordes of low education, low skill, welfare invaders streaming in to settle down with free housing, free food, free medical care, free education, etc. We already feel the drag on the economy with the billions spent on these leeches. THAT is the real danger.

    Climate experts call out new federal report for hiding the decline in hurricanes – ‘Were they thinking, no one would notice?’

    By: Marc Morano – Climate DepotNovember 25, 2018 9:01 PM

    Climate expert Prof. Dr. Roger Pielke Jr. noted how the new federal National Climate Assessment report looks at hurricanes. (Also see: Scientists trash new federal climate report as ‘tripe’ – ’embarrassing’ – ‘400-page pile of crap’ – Report’s key claim based on ‘study funded by Tom Steyer’)

    Pielke Jr. asked on November 24: “How it is that the 2018 US National Climate Assessment failed to include or overlooked trends in US landfalling hurricanes which would, ahem, seem pretty important in a US climate report[?]

    Pielke Jr. then noted that the report ignored one of its own expert reviewers who wrote this: “National Hurricane Center going back to the 1800s data clearly indicate a drop in the decadal rate of US landfalling hurricanes since the 1960s… instead you spin the topic to make it sound like the trends are all towards more cyclones.”

    Pielke Jr. continued: “Let’s observe here hurricanes are discussed at length in the report, and every hurricane that is discussed is … a landfalling storm. The failure to include trend data on US landfalling hurricanes in USNCA is a remarkable choice. What were they thinking, no one would notice?”

    “Here are 2 papers on US hurricanes ignored by USNCA: 1. trends in rainfall & flooding from US hurricanes: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0022169418301549 … 2. trends in US landfalling, intense hurricanes: https://journals.ametsoc.org/doi/10.1175/BAMS-D-17-0184.1 … Neither show long-term trends, but that isn’t a reason to ignore them,” Pielke added.

    Dr. Pielke also previously rebuked the new federal climate report, calling it “embarrassing.”

    Climate expert Dr. Roger Pielke Jr.: The claim of economic damage from climate change is based on a 15 degree F temperature increase that is double the “most extreme value reported elsewhere in the report.” The “sole editor” of this claim in the report was an alumni of the Center for American Progress, which is also funded by Tom Styer.”

    Greenpeace co-founder Dr. Patrick Moore: “The science must be addressed head-on. If POTUS has his reasons for letting this Obama-era committee continue to peddle tripe I wish he would tell us what they are.”

    Dr. John Dunn: “Two years into the Trump administration it is sad to see this 400-page pile of crap.”


  9. ivan says:

    oldbrew, looking at your last comment it would appear that president Trump is on a winner by allowing this ‘report’ to be circulated. At last he has managed to get the green stupidity well and truly out in the public arena.

    All going well this will be the beginning of the end of climate science as the greens know it.

    Milloy NYTimes comment on National Climate Assessment

    I make three points in today’s New York Times: 1) The National Climate Assessment is irrelevant; 2) It is a product of the Deep State (not the Trump admin); and 3) Releasing it untouched but on Black Friday was an expediency.

    Hurricanes aren’t hitting the U.S. more often, nor are they causing more normalized damages, a new study found.

    The study presents inconvenient data to those looking to sound the alarm on global warming.

    The newest National Climate Assessment was heavily criticized for omitting such inconvenient hurricane data.

    There’s been “no trend” in the number and intensity of hurricanes hitting the continental U.S. and the normalized damages caused by such storms over the past 117 years, according to a new study.

    “Consistent with observed trends in the frequency and intensity of hurricane landfalls along the continental United States since 1900, the updated normalized loss estimates also show no trend,” reads the study, published in Monday in the journal Nature.

    4 Problems With The New Climate Change Report

    By Nicolas Loris ~

    If you’re like me, you’re happy the White House released the latest version of the National Climate Assessment on Black Friday. Publishing the 1,700-page report the day after Thanksgiving saved me from unwanted dinner conversations about our planet’s impending climate doom.

    But if your aunt calls you up this week spouting claims of mass deaths, global food shortages, economic destruction, and national security risks resulting from climate change, here’s what you need to know about this report.
