Truth & the UN Global Warming Report

When it comes to the UN report on global warming, it's important to keep in mind that the summaries, dutifully reported by press, contain the cataclysmic conclusions of those trying to drive a Green political agenda.

The full report, due in May, contains many more qualifications and -- not coincidentally -- is drafted by actual scientists.

Read more in the Wall Street Journal.

To use the term Global Warming gives credence to a theory. I believe in solar warming. Now how about we stop the sun from shining so brightly?
By the way "Truth & the UN Global Warming Report" is a oxymoron.

The Center for Science and Public Policy is a private non-profit that does not have a single scientist on staff. It has received large donation from Exxon/Mobil.

Carol reaches false conclusions by relying on the The Wall Street Journal article that relies on The Center for Science and Public Policy that relies an non-scientific article by Christopher Monckton.

Christopher Monckton, otherwise known as Viscount Monckton of Brenchley. He has a degree in classics and a diploma in journalism and, no other qualifications. But he is confident enough to maintain that - by contrast to all those charlatans and amateurs who wrote the reports produced by the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change - he is publishing "the truth".

In a recent post, Sis, in the comments section, posts a link to a site with over 15,000 who signed a petition denouncing the Gore-ish global warming fear-mongering. I don't recall the details and don't feel like going back and forth for the sake of this little debate, but it was basically to refute the notion that there's some kind of "consensus" among scientists that says they all support the man-made global warmer crapola. Check it out. You won't have to scroll too far.

It matters not how much consensus there is of opinion on global warming. It's the consensus of scientific data. It all points to a hot planet caused primarily by human activity.

And it matters not whether the oceans rise a foot and half or three feet. Both scenarios are bad and we have to do something soon.

It's that very point that is in contention. How much of man's activity has contributed to the warming is not something that carries vast agreement. I'll concede that it does if one only reviews Gore-like sources.
