UN’S NEW REPORT SHOWS THERE’S ‘LITTLE BASIS’ FOR A FAVORITE CLAIM OF CLIMATE ACTIVISTS

  • The media regularly links extreme weather to man-made global warming.
  • The UN’s new report debunks that often used talking point.
  • The report, once again, shows “there is little basis for” such claims.
  • The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel On Climate Change’s (IPCC) newly-released climate report, once again, found little to no evidence global warming caused many types of extreme weather events to increase.

“The IPCC once again reports that there is little basis for claiming that drought, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes have increased, much less increased due to” greenhouse gases, University of Colorado professor Roger Pielke, Jr. tweeted Sunday night.

For example, the IPCC’s report noted that “there is only low confidence regarding changes in global tropical cyclone numbers under global warming over the last four decades.” Pielke pointed out this inconvenient data.

"Numerous studies towards and beyond AR5 have reported a decreasing trend
in the global number of tropical cyclones and/or the globally accumulated cyclonic energy"

Much like the IPCC’s 2013 climate assessment, the new special report confirmed what Pielke and others have said for years about the relationship between global warming and extreme weather.

But don’t expect to hear that from many other media outlets, especially those that often cite individual weather events as evidence of man-made warming.

For example, The Washington Post’s write-up of the IPCC’s report focused on the mainline findings — namely, that “the world is woefully off target” to keep future global warming below 1.5 degrees Celsius.

The New York Times highlighted the IPCC’s warning of “a world of worsening food shortages and wildfires, and a mass die-off of coral reefs as soon as 2040.” Neither WaPo nor NYT mentioned the report’s findings on extreme weather.

The IPCC’s new report is meant to sound the alarm on global warming ahead of the UN climate summit, which is to be held in Poland this December. Delegates are expected to make further commitments to implement the Paris climate accord that calls for limiting future warming below 2 degrees Celsius by 2100.

Aside from dire predictions, however, the IPCC’s new report also noted that many types of extreme weather events are not getting worse.

When it comes to droughts, for example...Read More HERE

  1. I am given to understand that there are technical means to establish the global temperature of the planet mars for quite some time. those technical means(see national science foundation) establish that average mars temperature rises and falls at the same rate as the earths average annual temperatures rise and fall. mankind is not on mars, and the only common denominator between the two is what? Either the sun or pixies?

    This guy was fired from his job because he didn't buy into claims - during the Katrina political fall out- of increasing storm size and frequency due to AGW. Fortunately, he apparently managed to get work with the Bush administration and has now been vindicated.
