In recent months I have been all over the spectrum on issues related to climate change. I was up late last night watching a presentation by Lord Monckton of the UK on climate change data from the IPCC. Based on Lord Monckton’s analysis, credibility of the IPCC process is called into question.
The IPCC has built into it’s computer modeling weighting which favors the data giving the expected outcome, the “hockey stick” projected temperature outcome.
With the new hockey stick chart and projections the Medieval Warm Period and Little Ice Age disappeared. What caused that? The scientists and technicians who support the IPCC are not consistent. I know it is in tiny print but the chart identifies as IPCC 1990.
Some say that Michael Mann was hired by the IPCC to “smooth” the data and get rid of the Medieval warm period and the Little ice age.
Now the IPCC is producing what academics call “post-normal science” while NIPCC (Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change) is producing old-fashioned “real science.” “Post-normal science” comes from massaged data. Can we really trust the IPCC?
Should the USA, or any other country in the world, make laws and change lives based or massaged data? Not this year. Not until the data is firmed up and accurate. The response should not be made on hidden agendas and post-normal science.
There are rational responses to the issues raised by climate. But please don’t base responses on data built on agendas.
These are only my thoughts in summary form. There is so much data out supporting these thoughts.
