  • Video: The IPCC's Rapidly Melting Credibility

    In the video to the right, BBC’s Andrew Neil grills Chief Scientist at the Department for the Environment, Professor Robert Watson on the many many mistakes in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change‘s 2007 report.

    As the Wall Street Journal has documented, in just the past year the IPCC’s 2007 report has been exposed for overstating the science on glacier loss in the Himalayas, crop loss in Africa, Amazon rain forest depletion and damage from weather catastrophes. No wonder the government of India it says they “cannot rely” on the IPCC and has established their own body to monitor the effects of global warming.

      If the Global Warming theory is a scam then the IPCC is also a joke. The IPCC was just another cog in the wheel to squash freedom and obtain money for a total lie. As always, follow the money and you will learn the truth.

    2. Bobbie Jay says:

      Very interesting. Mr. Neil did a wonderful interview. Does quality science include honesty?

      These weren't "mistakes." It is deliberate and intentional. The wasted money vested is nothing more then thievery to fund their fear mongering of something MAN CAN'T CONTROL!

      Taking Key Board in hand, Fwded the following to Senate Reps. Request you al do the same


      February 16, 2010


      In Lieu of Statistical, Accurate, and Honestly developed data, RE: Climate Change, AKA Global Warming, I request the following.


      1. A freedom of SENATORIAL Information request be delivered to the Obama Administration concerning ALL Climate Change, Global Warming, Czar related Memorandum, Letters, Written, or otherwise published, since the inauguration date of 20 Jan 2001.

      2. An immediate halt to all Czar agencies activities appointed to the OBNA Administration RE: Climate Change, Global warming.

      3. A n immediate halt to all Related EPA Environmental Regulations RE: Climate Change, Global Warming.

      4. The above SENATORIAL REQUESTS via your office, or via Caucuses, or via Direct Senate Leadership need to be IMMEDIATE, w/o Delay.


      The purpose being, to RE INSTALL the Relevance of the Congress RE: Climate Change, Global Warming, due to the recent revelations regarding the INACCURACIES, Fraud, and out right lying regarding the BASIC DATA of the Subject.

      Relevance of the CONGRESS on this vital issue is being subverted. Your attention to this issue is key, not only to your own personal RE- Election opportunities, but to the Security of the Nation.


      Once and IF the OBNA complies, the Senate and your offices, can and will, by the USA Electorate demands, effect a RE direction of the OBNA Agencies Agendas, steering the USA onto a path of Energy Independence that is sound, accurate, and worthy of the Congress of the USA, best efforts.

      I am always at awe at the lies, distortion and half-truths these so called "sciencetist" will use to support their very existence. Prof. Watson, despite his "stiff upper lip" of British fame, resembles a rat in a trap. He's

      caught and knows it. But, and that's a big "but", will the rest of the world be told

      the truth by the left wing news media. Regardless of the facts, Obama will

      continue to push his lies, not on behalf of the climate, but for the "transformation" of this nation his socialist dream.

    6. B Yarbrough, Melbour says:

      These IPCC folks are NUTS and are causing our economy to drop and drop. Some should be in Jail. Al Gore is one who should be skinned alive.

      It has NO credibality at all…..

    7. Ben C. Ann Arbor, MI says:

      My worry is the EPA which has little if any accountability. Its one thing to monitor exhaust emmisions and quite another to declare CO2 a hazardous material. Peter Spencer in Australia knows all to well what governments can do to its citizens when regulator agencies get involved in politcal agendas. Wait until the EPA police decide which trees you can cut down or what farmers will be able to do with their property. The day is coming unless we stop the madness now. Denial is not a river in Egypt.

    8. Drew Page, IL says:

      Never let the truth get in the way of a good B.S. story that can be used to scare people into allowing the government to tax the hell out of them.

      You want to raise taxes? Just invent a crisis, tell the world how unfair it is, find someone to blame for it and insult anyone who disagrees with you.
