UN IPCC ALL WET ON CLIMATE CHANGE, SAYS NIPCC

April 9, 2014: "Comprehensive Report Documents Beneficial Impacts of Global Warming", by James Taylor, JD, Senior Fellow, The Heartland Institute; Managing Editor, Environment and Climate News, Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A.

"The Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change released a 1,063-page report documenting global warming’s beneficial impact on the biosphere. The report, Climate Change Reconsidered II: Biological Impacts, provides a comprehensive analysis of the impact of global warming on plants, terrestrial animals, aquatic life, and human well-being.

"The new volume is the fifth produced by the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change. A sixth volume, Climate Change Reconsidered II: Human Welfare, Energy, and Policies, is scheduled for release in May.

"More than 30 scientists served as authors and reviewers for the new volume. The volume cites more than 1,000 peer-reviewed studies supporting the conclusion that global warming is not causing substantial harm to the biosphere. This directly counters alarmist assertions by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

“Biological Impacts broadly tracks and critiques the work of IPCC’s Working Group II…. It appears IPCC is continuing its pattern of selectively reporting data to present an alarmist view of the impacts of climate change,” the report explains."

Marie Curie, the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, once said:

“Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.”

“By ignoring observational evidence that does not support their politically-motivated conclusions, the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) promotes unjustified fear about climate change. The latest report of the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change, Climate Change Reconsidered II: Biological Impacts, presents crucially important evidence that the IPCC ignored, information that will help the public, media and politicians to understand more, and so fear less, about the consequences of climate change.”

U.S. SECRETARY OF STATE OUT OF TOUCH WITH THE REAL WORLD

April 2, 2014: "Kerry’s first Policy Guidance out of touch with climate realities", by Tom Harris, published in the Times-Republican, "Central Iowa's Daily Newspaper", Marshalltown, Iowa, U.S.A.

"Kerry ruined his credibility on the issue when he told agency staff that “The scientific facts are coming back to us in a stronger fashion and with greater urgency than ever before.” The September 2013 report of the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change demonstrates that much of what we thought we knew about climate is wrong or highly debatable. The science is becoming more unsettled as the field advances. The secretary’s push for a “whole-of-government approach to speed the transition to a low-carbon” energy future is vastly premature.

"We should focus on adapting to climate change, not vainly trying to stop it. Adaptation measures should include upgrading our heating, cooling, and irrigation systems, relocating populations living in dangerous areas, burying electrical and communications cables underground, reinforcing infra- structure, and preparing for continuing sea level rise, a phenomenon that has gone on for 10,000 years and is not likely to end any time soon. To do this we will need massive quantities of inexpensive, high quality, reliable power.

"Yet in discussing his solutions to these dangers, Kerry promotes wind and solar power, the least reliable and most expensive options available. Moving away from coal and other hydrocarbon fuels to flimsy alternative power sources because of climate concerns would be suicide."

NEWS RELEASE - “EARTH HOUR" BASED ON A LIE

Attention: News Editors, Political, Science and Environment Reporters

EARTH HOUR SHOULD BE REPLACED WITH ENERGY HOUR

Doing the right things for the wrong reasons is a serious mistake

Ottawa, Canada, March 28, 2014: Earth Hour has become a symbol of how radical climate activists have hijacked the environmental movement,” said Tom Harris, executive director of the Ottawa, Canada-based International Climate Science Coalition (ICSC). “Most people do not realize that, when they turn out their lights for sixty minutes on March 29, they are not supporting science-based environmental protection. Participants in Earth Hour are unwittingly helping prop up one of the most threatening scientific hoaxes in history—the idea that carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from human activities are known to be causing dangerous global warming and other problematic climate change.”

DISASTROUS CONSEQUENCES OF OBAMA'S FOCUS ON CLIMATE CHANGE

March 19, 2014: "Obama's Foreign Policy Obsession With Global Warming Emboldens Putin", by James M. Taylor, senior fellow for The Heartland Institute focusing on energy and environment issues. He is managing editor of Environment & Climate News, a national monthly publication devoted to sound science and free-market environmentalism. He also writes a weekly column for Forbes.com and a weekly email newsletter, Climate Change Weekly.

"Nations signal their foreign policy priorities and resolve by choosing issues on which to focus and issues on which to tread lightly. As the Ukraine crisis escalated throughout the month of February and Russian military forces predictably prepared to invade the nation, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry chose to launch a high-profile campaign of attacks against American climate scientists and essentially give the Kremlin a green light to invade Ukraine."

ICSC CHIEF SCIENCE ADVISOR DISCUSSES NIPCC ON AUSTRALIAN RADIO

ICSC Chief Science Advisor Professor Bob Carter, PhD, Australia. 

March 8, 2014: "Professor Bob Carter, PhD on the latest NIPCC report", radio interview on Truth News radio, Australia. Listen here.

"In today's show we are joined by Professor Bob Carter for the entire second hour to discuss the findings contained in the latest NIPCC report.

"The NIPCC ("Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change")  is an international panel of nongovernment scientists and scholars who have come together to understand the causes and consequences of climate change from a sceptical viewpoint, looking at information which is routinely ignored by the official U.N. body, the IPCC.

"The NIPCC was formed in response to the IPCC's Fourth Assessment Report, released in 2007 with the aim of providing an independent, second opinion on the IPCC's findings. The first full report of the NIPCC was published in 2009. Another report followed in 2011, and the latest report was published in 2013.

 

"The 2013 NIPCC report contains an Executive Summary and a Summary for Policy Makers which present the findings in an approachable way for general readers.

"From the Summary For Policy Makers:

"NIPCC’s conclusion, drawn from its extensive review of the scientific evidence, is that any human global climate signal is so small as to be embedded within the background variability of the natural climate system and is not dangerous. At the same time, global temperature change is occurring, as it always naturally does. A phase of temperature stasis or cooling has succeeded the mild twentieth century warming. It is certain that similar natural climate changes will continue to occur.

"In the show today, Professor Carter goes through some of the key findings in the latest report and addresses some popular misconceptions about polar ice and climate variability over the past ten thousand years."
