    Man-made global warming: even the IPCC admits the jig is up​

    Breaking news from the US – h/t Watts Up With That? – where a leaked draft of the IPCC's latest report AR5 admits what some of us have suspected for a very long time: that the case for man-made global warming is looking weaker by the day and that the sun plays a much more significant role in "climate change" than the scientific "consensus" has previously been prepared to concede. [...]
    The admission of strong evidence for enhanced solar forcing changes everything. The climate alarmists can’t continue to claim that warming was almost entirely due to human activity over a period when solar warming effects, now acknowledged to be important, were at a maximum.

    The isolation by climate sceptics of one sentence in the 14-chapter draft report was described as "completely ridiculous" by one of the report's lead authors. Prof Steve Sherwood, a director of the Climate Change Research Centre at the University of New South Wales, told ABC Radio in Australia: "You could go and read those paragraphs yourself and the summary of it and see that we conclude exactly the opposite, that this cosmic ray effect that the paragraph is discussing appears to be negligible … It's a pretty severe case of [cherry-picking], because even the sentence doesn't say what [climate sceptics] say and certainly if you look at the context, we're really saying the opposite."

    It says: "There is consistent evidence from observations of a net energy uptake of the earth system due to an imbalance in the energy budget. It is virtually certain that this is caused by human activities, primarily by the increase in CO2 concentrations. There is very high confidence that natural forcing contributes only a small fraction to this imbalance."


    By "virtually certain", the scientists say they mean they are now 99% sure that man's emissions are responsible. By comparison, in the IPCC's last report, published in 2007, the scientists said they had a "very high confidence" – 90% sure – humans were principally responsible for causing the planet to warm.

    A classic lie of omission.

    Here is what the dipshit in the OP link believes is the "killer admission":


    That quote is from page 7-43 of the IPCC leaked report.

    Hey, here's an idea. Let's read that for ourselves!

    Here you go: http://www.stopgreensuicide.com/Ch7_Clouds-aerosols_WG1AR5_SOD_Ch07_All_Final.pdf



    Oh. My. Goodness. What's this we find on the very next page?

    I recommend reading all of section 7.4.5 to get the full gist of what is being studied, and why, and to what effect.

    Global Warming Trend 'Unmistakable' UN Says
    January 15, 2013 — The United Nations' chief science body is meeting in Tasmania as climate scientists urge Australia to prepare for rising sea levels that could put about $300 billion worth of commercial property, infrastructure and homes at risk. The U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change summit in Hobart is the latest round of talks before the release of its fifth major paper in September.

    LOL: "there is medium evidence and high agreement...another strong argument against the hypothesis of [non-man made] climate change."

    Do you realize the glaring logical inconsistencies here? Medium evidence results in High agreement? The negative hypothesis? Undefined "climate change?" We are up to our eyeballs in politically correct thinking, not to mention that virtually all of these Climate Change lackeys depend on funding from left-wing institutions.
