Another View on Climate

My Own View of Global Warming

This Says it All

Yet another from WUWT, Science Mag asking R. Pachauri of the IPCC:

Q: Has all that has happened this winter dented the credibility of IPCC?
R.K.P.: I don’t think the credibility of the IPCC can be dented. If the IPCC wasn’t there, why would anyone be worried about climate change?
So I looked up the mission of the IPCC and found this from the Union of Concerned Scientists

IPCC History and Misson
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was established in 1988 under the auspices of the United Nations Environment Programme and the World Meteorological Organization for the purpose of assessing “the scientific, technical and socioeconomic information relevant for the understanding of the risk of human-induced climate change. It does not carry out new research nor does it monitor climate-related data. It bases its assessment mainly on published and peer reviewed scientific technical literature.” [1] The goal of these assessments is to inform international policy and negotiations on climate-related issues.

So if you believe that climate change (global warming) is a serious issue and humans are the problem, then the UN IPCC fits right in.
It was never intended to be an objective analysis of the reality and science of global warming so Pachauri is right on with his statement.
Too bad there’s no there, there.
