According to an OPED by Joseph Bast in Forbes online, a group of climate scientists has refuted the latest pile of findings from the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The IPCC chairman is the same chairman as has released the same type of alarmist documents in past “findings.” Get ready for it and the refutation from the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC):
A note before the OPED: There is an email component to an IPCC report from 2011, but the details on that will be posted tomorrow (4.3.14).
This week, the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is releasing its latest report, the “Working Group II Contribution to the Fifth Assessment Report.” Like its past reports, this one predicts apocalyptic consequences if mankind fails to give the UN the power to tax and regulate fossil fuels and subsidize and mandate the use of alternative fuels. But happily, an international group of scientists I have been privileged to work with has conducted an independent review of IPCC’s past and new reports, along with the climate science they deliberately exclude or misrepresent. Our group, called the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC), was founded in 2003 by a distinguished atmospheric physicist, S. Fred Singer, and has produced five hefty reports to date, the latest being released today (March 31). So how do the IPCC and NIPCC reports differ? The final draft of the IPCC’s Summary for Policymakers identifies eight “reasons for concern” which media reports say will remain the focus of the final report. The NIPCC reports address each point too, also summarizing their authors’ positions in Summaries for Policymakers. This provides a convenient way to compare and contrast the reports’ findings. Here’s what the reports say:
