Mark Landbaum of the Orange County Register lays out a very comprehensive list of problems found to date with the IPCC report. He identifies 19 big problems that have culminated in the dawning public realization that this whole man-made global warming thing is a farce.
I can only add a few more items to his extensive list:
Pachaurigate III: It has been well established that Pachauri, the head of the IPCC, serves on the board Â of numerous green companies and organizations and is slated to become as rich as Bill Gates on the CO2 schemes being proposed under the guise of global warming. The green is all about greed it seems.
GISSgate: In response to a freedom of information request NASA’s GISS was required to produce a series of emails, which in turn revealed that (a) NASA admits the current warm period is not historically different from the period around 1921-1950, and (b) that there has been no sign of global warming in North America or the US. How is global warming possible when it is not ‘global’?
Coolergate: The real killer is the global temperature itself, which has been cooling since 2000, and not showing any warming since 1995 – according to Dr Phil Jones, previous head of CRU. In addition, Jones admitted there is no data to overturn the long held scientific theory that the Medieval Warm Period (MWP) was as warm or warmer than today. Jones admits lack of data in other regions was used by Mann and others to make up the idea the MWP was cooler, but lack of data is not the same thing as proxies showing cooler temps!
It is a great list to clobber the few die-hard Al Gore groupies with.
