UN IPCC Admission: Negligible Climate Change by end of the Century
Written by Andy Rowlands
Careful reading of the most recent report by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reveals that their official expectation is of no more than a 0.5 degrees rise in global temperatures by the end of this century (2100).
The revelation comes in an IPCC weblink* which was posted last week in a Facebook group, and hopefully should be of some small comfort for those who believe the planet is heating out of control.
This inconvenient ‘devil in the detail’ is from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s own SR15 ‘Special Report’ in 2018, of which this is the Summary for Policymakers.
Note first it freely admits they made ‘Changes to the Underlying Scientific-Technical Assessment to ensure consistency with the approved Summary for Policymakers’. (Emphasis added)
This confirms the IPCC change the actual science papers to reflect their summary for policymakers, which had obviously been written beforehand. It could be, and in fact has been, argued this is tantamount to scientific fraud.
Second, look at paragraphs A2 and A2.1. For clarity I reproduce them here:
A.2. Warming from anthropogenic emissions from the pre-industrial period to the present will persist for centuries to millennia and will continue to cause further long-term changes in the climate system, such as sea level rise, with associated impacts (high confidence), but these emissions alone are unlikely to cause global warming of 1.5°C. (Emphasis added)
A.2.1. Anthropogenic emissions (including greenhouse gases, aerosols and their precursors) up to the present are unlikely to cause further warming of more than 0.5°C over the next two to three decades (high confidence) or on a century time scale. (Emphasis added)
What this means is we are unlikely to see more than a 0.5C average global temperature increase by the end of this century, an amount no human or animal would even notice. This also assumes of course that the ‘greenhouse gas theory’ is actually correct, and those of us at Principia Scientific International know it isn’t.
As Canadian space scientist and leading skeptic, Joe Postma has amply demonstrated, the consensus climate theory violates the laws of thermodynamics. Just read Joe’s book ‘In the Cold Light of Day: Flat Earth in Modern Physics and a Numerical Proof for God: A Climate Alarm.’
For clarity, and in simplified terms, the second law of thermodynamics states that heat flow runs only in one direction, and is not reversible.
For example, hot objects always cool, they never spontaneously increase their own temperature. A hot object can increase the temperature of a cold object by conduction or radiation, but a cold object cannot increase the temperature of a hot object.
Postma mentioned in his recent article on PSI that some alarmists are now claiming the Sun has zero effect on our climate, which is simply ludicrous. As Joe says, without the Sun to heat the atmosphere in the first place, no amount of ‘greenhouse gases’ on their own would be able to make the Earth habitable.
Anyone who tells you anything else about how much the temperature may or will rise; like The Guardian, the BBC and various climate activists, or anyone who believes a half degree increase in temperature over 80 years will cause mass extinctions, collapse of ecosystems and unprecedented environmental disasters, is frankly living in cloud cuckoo land, and they need to stop believing the fear-mongering and look at what is actually being said.
The IPCC are not claiming any such disasters will occur, only the far-left radicalized extremist doom-mongers are doing that.
Unfortunately, this is compounded by the IPCC not saying anything to correct such claims, although rather curiously, Michael Hokey Schtick Mann penned an article on the website science 2.0 in June 2019 with the title “Climate change will NOT end human civilization by 2050. Overblown rhetoric and unsupportable doomist framing’.
