When good liars lie, they do so by only telling half the truth, leaving out that part of the truth they need to hide. One definition of a half-truth is this:
A deceptive statement, especially one that is only partly true, is incomplete, (misrepresents reality by telling part of the truth), or alters the time sequence of truths.
Right on the heels of ClimateFakeGate, we learn that the entire next report out of the IPCC is one big fat half-truth lie:
For the 1750-2010 period examined, two variables correlate strongly with the observed warming (and hence with each other). Solar magnetic activity and atmospheric CO2 were both trending upwards over the period, and both stepped up to much higher levels over the second half of the 20th century. These two correlations with temperature change give rise to the two main competing theories of 20th century warming. Was it driven by rapidly increasing human release of CO2, or by the 80 year “grand maximum” of solar activity that began in the early 1920?s? (“Grand minima and maxima of solar activity: new observational constraints,” Usoskin et al. 2007.)
The empirical evidence in favor of the solar explanation is overwhelming. Dozens of peer-reviewed studies have found a very high degree of correlation (.5 to .8) between solar-magnetic activity and global temperature going back many thousands of years (Bond 2001, Neff 2001, Shaviv 2003, Usoskin 2005, and many others listed below). In other words, solar activity “explains,” in the statistical sense, 50 to 80% of past temperature change.
As I will fully document, all of the evidence for a strong solar magnetic driver of climate is simply left out of AR5. Of the many careful empirical studies that show a high correlation between solar activity and climate, only three papers are obliquely referenced in a single sentence of the entire First Order Draft.
Nothing could be more perverse in such a circumstance than to unplug the modern world in a misbegotten jihad against CO2. The IPCC’s omitted variable fraud must stop. AR5?s misattribution of 20th century warming to CO2 must stop. The evidence overwhelmingly supports the solar-magnetic warming theory.
This is a damning report from an actual AR5 reviewer.
Around 2000 the infamous Hockey Team’s tried to hide the fact that tree rings had diverged from modern temperature records in the late 20th century (and showed cooling instead of the predicted warming). They did this by splicing in different data and deleting the important part of the tree ring data record. This was an instance of fraud by a small cadre of egotistical klutzes. They made their bed and now have to wallow in it.
But to have the entire scientific record of solar induced warming ‘hidden’ by the IPCC stinks of Orwell’s Big Brother and the tricks employed by Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels (one of the most gifted propagandists of all time). These fanatics (no one should ever confuse them with real scientists) are desperate to save their failing CO2 theories. So desperate they have tried to hide the truth.
Bunglers and liars. That’s all these people are. All true scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and professionals should shun these people.
