Rodney Hide on the fraud of Climate Change and the IPCC [UPDATED]

Rodney Hide is as blunt as usual in calling out the charlatans of the IPCC.

The headlines shout, “Scientists give strongest climate change warning” and “Grim message on climate change”.

Yes the just-released Fifth Assessment of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) declares the science more certain than ever. It wasn’t always so.

Patrick Gower attacked me yesterday via twitter until I sent him a link about how they actually worked out the 95%, then he went surprisingly quiet. [Looks like I was talking to a PG impersonator!  No wonder he went quiet…]

But the news is not all bad. The hike in temperatures has “paused” despite the continued hike in greenhouse gases. The IPCC had been almost 95 per cent certain the world would now be warmer than it actually is. Their predictions haven’t proved true.

Haven’t proved true? Does that mean they got it WRONG, or worse that they lied?

Indeed, the evidence supporting the idea that humans are causing dangerous warming has got less with each assessment.

By the time of the Third Assessment the warming trend had stopped. There had been no discernible warming for nine years by the time of the Fourth Assessment. And now there’s been none for 15 years.

The Fifth Assessment in draft admitted that the models had failed. “Models do not generally reproduce the observed reduction in surface warming trend over the last 10-15 years.”

But that admission was edited out. Instead, the Assessment excused the failure: “Due to natural variability, trends based on short records are very sensitive to the beginning and end dates and do not in general reflect long-term climate trends”.

So there you have it. More and more certain. Less and less evidence.

The IPCC’s disconnect from reality has left me 85 per cent certain in my diagnosis: the IPCC’s psychotic.

Sometime soon these charlatans are going to be held to account. Who are the deniers now huh?

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
