IPCC report:
global warming is ´unequivocal´

Telegraph [UK], by Nick Collins

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 9/27/2013 6:06:17 AM

On Friday the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change delivers its latest verdict on the state of man-made global warming. Though the details are a secret, one thing is clear: the version of events you will see and hear in much of the media, especially from partis pris organisations like the BBC, will be the opposite of what the IPCC’s Fifth Assessment Report actually says. Already we have had a taste of the nonsense to come: a pre-announcement to the effect that “climate scientists” are now “95 per cent certain” that humans are to blame for climate change; an evidence-free declaration

Every time I read about the IPCC, or a climate change conference, I envision Tiny Tim at the podium singing ´Tip Toe Through the Tulips´with that vacant, paranoid, and slightly insane stare he had while strumming his Ukulele.

A Telegraph reader provided the best response to "greenism", or, communism without concentration camps:

"...George Carlin, the American stand-up comedian, social critic, satirist and author who died in 2008 ... Are these people kidding me? Save the planet, we don´t even know how to take care of ourselves yet. We haven´t learned how to care for one another, we´re gonna save the planet? I´m getting tired of that...I´m tired of Earth Day, I´m tired of these self-righteous environmentalists, these white, bourgeois liberals who think the only thing wrong with this country is there aren´t enough bicycle paths. The planet is fine. Compared to the people, the planet is doing great. Been here four and a half billion years. Did you ever think about the arithmetic? The planet has been here four and a half billion years. We´ve been here, what, a hundred thousand? Maybe two hundred thousand? And we´ve only been engaged in heavy industry for a little over two hundred years. Two hundred years versus four and a half billion. And we have the CONCEIT to think that somehow we´re a threat? That somehow we´re gonna put in jeopardy this beautiful little blue-green ball that´s just a-floatin´ around the sun? The planet has been through a lot worse than us. Been through all kinds of things worse than us. Been through earthquakes, volcanoes, plate tectonics, continental drift, solar flares, sun spots, magnetic storms, the magnetic reversal of the poles ... hundreds of thousands of years of bombardment by comets and asteroids and meteors, worldwide floods, tidal waves, worldwide fires, erosion, cosmic rays, recurring ice ages ... and we think some plastic bags and some aluminum cans are going to make a difference?

This clique of the World is Getting Hotter are equivalent to a person yelling, "Fire ,Fire...in a crowded theater"

They are also lining their pockets with millions of dollars in phony research projects that yield false and concocted information.

Gore and his buddies yelled "Fire" and created a PANIC.

Henny-Pennyish and pseudo scientists are locking the exit doors with their false an contrived to data that fits their false notions based on cooked data.

IPCC you lies are what are ´unequivocal"
You cooked the data once before and were called on it.

Now IPCC you are using a "New recipe" that still is using lousy ingredients.

I am really perplexed by all the negative comments. If you delve into the science, climate change is undeniable. There were scientists from 195 countries collaborating on this reports. How do you explain away this statement, "The report makes clear that each of the past three decades has been successively warmer at the Earth´s surface than any preceding decade since 1850, and that 1983-2012 was likely the warmest 30-year period of the past 1,400 years."

Also, people seem to be jumping on the 95% figure, but science is rarely more definite than 95%.

It is easy for people to criticize the concept of climate change if they don´t take the time to understand the details.

The world has not warmed in almost 20 years, thus the model is bust. Full stop. They are lying. IPCC dependent-upon-climate-change-to-steal-money-from-the-hard-working clowns at the UN and the political left here have reached a "consensus" on a bunch of obvious hokum in order to keep the gravy train rolling.
Newsflash: "consensus" science is the OPPOSITE of actual science.

First the IPCC and now the UN climate report and they´re all wrong.

How about these miscreants take a look at the NIPCC report? Scientists who unequivocally say exactly the opposite of the UN and IPCC?

And by the way, why did the IPCC flip from first claiming that their own stats and formulas were inaccurate to saying suddenly the reverse? Why should they be believed when they flip on a dime? Or in this case, flip on a few million in grant money to continue their bogus "reports"?

The Saudis and other bad actors who used to disrupt the proceedings of the IPCC don´t do it anymore because they know this charade is about to end. A few more years at most and they will have to admit they were wrong. All of their projections from the highest to the lowest have proved wrong. Right now temperatures are below the lowest IPCC projections and will soon be below the error estimates of the lowest low projections. That totally falsifies their models which are based on the hypothesis that man generated CO2 causes really bad atmospheric warming. It creates a little bit of atmospheric warming but is more beneficial than harmful.

It´s amazing how speculation has replaced real science for the IPCC. Their models do not match real world outcomes. Period! The Climate Alarmists admit it themselves in the Climategate emails. That means their assumptions are WRONG. CO2 has risen but temperatures are now flat. The only explanation they can come up with is "maybe" it´s in the deep oceans. There is no proof of that but people are treating it like proven fact. How can you be 95% sure of the cause of something that you don´t even understand.

They claim that there will be more and more powerful storms but we are finishing another ho hum hurricane season, few storms and NO major storms, far less than average. The rate of ocean rise is mostly consistent, not surging as predicted. The sea ice was supposed to be retreating, almost gone, but has reached record amounts this year. The Himalayan Glacier is still with use. Ice pack densities are moving around, but the overall amount of ice is more or less consistent.

This update, like most previous ones, reduces the projected "damage" from the original IPCC report. A few more updates and there won´t be anything to worry about because they will find the changes too small to matter. Who knows. Maybe they will then start to predict cooling.

All their Alarmist predictions are garbage. Yet they want us to significantly undermine our lifestyles and compromise our future to protect us from their unsubstantiated fictions.

No thanks! No snake oil needed here.

Thousands die of thirst

Telegraph [UK], by Padraic Flanagan, Laura Donnelly    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 4/22/2014 7:53:38 AM     Post Reply
At least 1,000 hospital patients are dying needlessly each month from dehydration and poor care by doctors and nurses, according to an NHS study. The deaths from acute kidney injury could be prevented by simple steps such as nurses ensuring patients have enough to drink and doctors reviewing their medication, the researchers say. Between 15,000 and 40,000 patients die annually because hospital staff fail to diagnose the treatable kidney problem, a figure that dwarfs the death toll from superbugs like MRSA. The report comes less than a year after the NHS watchdog NICE was forced to issue guidelines on giving patients water

The term "Dark Net" is shorthand to describe the hidden and encrypted part of the internet beyond the reach of normal browsers, accessible only using the anonymous browser Tor. It´s protected by a clever traffic encryption system which makes it very difficult to locate the servers which host sites--called Tor Hidden Services--and the IP addresses of the people the visit them. Tor used to stand for The Onion Router, and so some call this world "Onionland". Anonymity and freedom rule Onionland, not censorship.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius maneuvered one of America´s richest liberal philanthropies into contributing $13 million to Enroll America, a group founded by a former Obama White House staffer to drive up insurance enrollment numbers under the Affordable Care Act.

A pregnant journalist is recovering in hospital today after a pro-Kremlin political leader in Russia told two male aides to ´violently rape´ her at a press conference. Nationalist Vladimir Zhironovsky launched his extraordinary tirade after reporter Stella Dubovitskaya asked him an innocuous question about sanctions against Ukraine. The founder of the far right Liberal Democratic Party began shouting wildly, before suddenly manhandling two young male aides towards the pregnant mother-of-one. He then shouted to them: ´When I say, you run to her and violently rape her.´ The parliamentary reporter, who is six months pregnant, is now being treated in hospital

A huge fire in Gibraltar, caused by a fuel tank explosion, shut down many online betting services and disrupted gamblers during a busy day of sport. Residences near the blaze were evactuated following the fire, which broke out at around 1pm local time. The explosion occurred at Gibraltar´s main power station and the fire shut down much of the area´s electricity. Thousands of residents and tourists were left without power while firefighters battled the blaze. The fire was eventually brought under control at around 4.30pm local time.

What stops the Earth from looking like Pluto is energy from the Sun. The quantity and type of energy coming from the Sun varies over cycles that range up to 1,500 years long. The cycle we can see with our own eyes, in our own lifetimes, is the sunspot cycle that is normally eleven years long. [Snip] It has become established—for those who are willing to look at the evidence—that climate will very closely follow our colder Sun. Climate is no longer a mystery to us.

Of all the many absurdities of the great climate change non-crisis which has been pointlessly obsessing our planet this last three or four decades, surely the most egregious is this: global warming is good. No really, it is. As a few bold heretics--such as Australian geologist Ian Plimer in his book Heaven And Earth--have long been trying to tell anyone prepared to listen, the human species is designed for warmth not cold. Ice ages are something we should naturally fear; warming periods are something which for which we should yearn. All the historical evidence confirms this--that periods of warming

At least six Birmingham schools accused of harbouring a Trojan horse plot run by Muslim fundamentalists will be placed under special measures by Ofsted. The action is understandable. The unsubtle attempts to insert Islamist ideas--representing an extremist, politicised form of Islam--into the curriculum of those schools makes for frightening reading. Equally unsettling was the liberal establishment’s failure to correct it. According to a special report by the Education Funding Agency, radical Muslims have tried to take control of teaching by first taking control of school governorships. Excellent head teachers were either reduced to the status of figureheads or forced out

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There is nothing like it in the democracies of Europe, which came into being with nations already carved up into private fiefdoms.

Suppose a scientific conference on cancer prevention never addressed smoking, on the grounds that in a free society you can´t change private behavior, and anyway, maybe the statistical relationships between smoking and cancer are really caused by some other third variable. Wouldn´t some suspect that the scientists who raised these claims were driven by something—ideology, tobacco money—other than science? Yet in the current discussions about increased inequality, few researchers, fewer reporters, and no one in the executive branch of government directly addresses what seems to be the strongest statistical correlate of inequality in the United States: the rise of single-parent
