OF THE IPCC REPORT — even before they take all the science out of it and publish the administrative summary (which is all the media will ever report on) – has exceeded a value of 1.0.
One counter is particularly amusing…
“Germany called for the reference to the slowdown to be deleted, saying a time span of 10-15 years was misleading in the context of climate change, which is measured over decades and centuries,” the AP report said. “The U.S. also urged the authors to include the ‘leading hypothesis’ that the reduction in warming is linked to more heat being transferred to the deep ocean.”
It should be mentioned that, when noted Marxist agitprop and government “scientist” James Hansen first briefed Congress on the — scorn quotes — “crisis”, it had been less than three years since widespread predictions of a coming ice age were the accepted conventional wisdom. But that wasn’t a misleading time span in THAT context.
Let us have none of that nonsense.
