Climate clangers revealed 16/9/2013
As many a wise person has predicted: the truth will out.
THE Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s latest assessment reportedly admits its computer drastically overestimated rising temperatures, and over the past 60 years the world has in fact been warming at half the rate claimed in the previous IPCC report in 2007
This letter in The Oz dishes it out immaculately:
Over the billions of years our planet has been evolving, it has been forming continents, oceans, shifting plates, and was suffering ice ages separated by warming periods well before the arrival of humans and industry.
Against that scale, the period since we arrived is only a few years, our industry only months and the records on which climate change claims are based are only hours old.
If the IPCC could step back and marvel at the majesty of nature, it might encourage a measure of humility in man, allowing some reason instead of limiting its mental activity to jumping to conclusions.
