Congressman Calls For Schools To ‘Promote The Agenda’ Of Climate Change, Population Limitation

“Like I keep saying over and over again, if you get young people invested in those ideas early on, that will result in those kinds of positive policy developments," Sarbanes told "So, whether it’s climate change, whether it’s population growth, whether it’s all these factors that impact the health of our world, raising that awareness early among young people is only going to promote the agenda.”

Questioning the Arctic Ice Melt and Temperature Scare

First, let’s look at the expanded definition of ‘Arctic.’ If you headed south from the Arctic toward the equator would you expect the weather to change? Well, you don’t have to be smarter than a fifth grader to know that the further you got away from the Arctic Circle the more likely the weather wouldn’t be as severe. One unreported fact about the Arctic is that its geographical boundaries have been expanded. Several years ago the Arctic Climate Impact Assessment (ACIA) decided to expand the Arctic by about 50% or approximately 4 million square miles. (2) Have you seen or heard about this from the media?

CO2 levels have been 10 to 20 times higher than the present during multiple periods of Earth's history without causing a 'tipping point' of no return'

'An entire ice age came and went with CO2 levels about 11 times higher than the present throughout the Ordovician period' -- 'Antarctica abruptly transitioned from a warm, subtropical hothouse to the present solid ice sheet during a period when CO2 levels exceeded those of today by 10 times'

Global Warming Alarmist Calls For Eco-Gulags To Re-Educate Climate Deniers

The heart of Linkola’s dark philosophy revolves around the need to slaughter masses of humans. “If there were a button I could press, I would sacrifice myself without hesitating if it meant millions of people would die,” he writes.

It is confirmed IPCC not a scientific body

Let’s face it, we are an intergovernmental body and our strength and acceptability of what we produce is largely because we are owned by governments. If that was not the case, then we would be like any other scientific body that maybe producing first-rate reports but don’t see the light of the day because they don’t matter in policy-making. Now clearly, if it’s an inter-governmental body and we want governments’ ownership of what we produce, obviously they will give us guidance of what direction to follow, what are the questions they want answered. IPCC Head Rajendra Pachauri.

And let's not forget about the Guessing.. Pachauri " You really don't have a quantitative base by which you can attach a probability or a level of uncertainty that defines things in quantitative terms'

THE END OF THE IPCC ? naaa! Move along nothing to see here.

InterAcademy Council Report on the IPCC Released
Following controversy over the IPCC's 2007 assessment report, last March the UN and the IPCC asked the IAC to assemble a committee to review the processes and procedures of the IPCC. The 12-member committee from ten countries and headed by Harold Shapiro of Princeton University released its report on August 30. Unlike the Climategate inquiries, this one is no whitewash. Key recommendations (see Chapter 5 of the report) include:

1. Modernizing the IPCC's management structure to include an Executive Committee, a rigorous conflict of interest* policy and limiting the term of the Chair to one term only;
2. Strengthening the review process to ensure more effective responses to reviewer comments;
3. Characterizing and communicating uncertainties, particularly with regard to the level-of-understanding and likelihood scales used in the IPCC reports;
4. Developing an effective communications strategy that emphasizes transparency, rapid and thoughtful responses;
5. Increasing transparency, including explicit documentation that a range of scientific viewpoints** has been considered;
6. Clarifying use of unpublished and non-peer-reviewed sources;
7. Engaging the best regional experts;
8. Expediting approval of the Summary for Policy Makers;
9. Reducing the growing burden on the scientific community, for example, by having shorter reports focusing on key issues or significant new developments; and
10. Maintaining flexibility.

* Chapter 4 of the report deals extensively with the conflict-of-interest question, noting that no such policy exists for the IPCC and that questions were raised about its Chair's (i.e., Rajendra Pachauri's) service with some for-profit energy companies and the practice of Lead Authors reviewing their own work (p. 46.)
** Chapter 2, page 20, notes John Christy's presentation that alternative views are not always cited in a chapter if a Lead Author disagrees with them.

Morano: 'The IAC has once again revealed that the UN IPCC is merely a partisan error-riddled pressure group campaigning for their cause. Quite simply, the IPCC is the best science that politics and activists could manufacture. Skeptics worldwide should rally around the discredited UN IPCC chief Pachauri. The longer Pachauri stays, the more damage he does to the pitiful IPCC process. Viva Pachauri!'

UK Telegraph: 'Flawed science': 'UN IPCC was rightly warned not to stray into what might be seen as scaremongering and policy advocacy'

Geologist Dr. Don Easterbrook: 'The IPCC report is filled with statements of '90% certainty' without even saying 90% of what or providing any basis for such statements. Yet those pronouncements of certainty were used over and over as though that had been scientifically proven somehow'
