New Report on Global Warming Contradicts U.N.’s IPCC


The United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), already under severe criticism for violating the requirements of academic peer review and relying on secondary sources, comes under attack again in a new report co-produced by three
nonprofit research organizations.According to the new report, “natural causes are very
likely to be [the] dominant” cause of climate change that took place in the twentieth and
at the start of the twenty-first centuries. “We are not saying anthropogenic greenhouse
gases (GHG) cannot produce some warming or have not in the past. Our conclusion is
that the evidence shows they are not playing a substantial role.”The authors of the new
report go on to say “the net effect of continued warming and rising carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere is most likely to be beneficial to humans, plants,
and wildlife.”

Both conclusions contradict the findings of the widely cited reports of the IPCC.


Click here for an executive summary of the book.
Click here to review the book chapter-by-chapter.


The report was produced by The Heartland Institute,Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide
and Global Change, and Science and Environmental Policy Project (SEPP), three national
nonprofit organizations based in Chicago, Illinois, Tempe, Arizona, and Arlington, Virginia,
respectively.
The 430-page report was coauthored and edited by three climate science researchers:
Craig D. Idso, Ph.D., editor of the online magazine CO2 Science and author of several
books and scholarly articles on the effects of carbon dioxide on plant and animal life;


Robert M. Carter, Ph.D., a marine geologist and research professor at James Cook
University in Queensland, Australia; and


S. Fred Singer, Ph.D., a distinguished atmospheric physicist and first director of the
U.S. Weather Satellite Service. Seven additional scientists and one policy expert on
sustainable growth made contributions to the volume.


The book is titled Climate Change Reconsidered: 2011 Interim Report because it precedes a
comprehensive volume that is expected to be released in 2013. It focuses on scientific research
released since publication of Climate Change Reconsidered: The 2009 Report of the
Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC).
Key findings, as outlined in the interim report’s executive summary, include:


“We find evidence that the models over-estimate the amount of warming that occurred
during the twentieth century and fail to incorporate chemical and biological processes that
may be as important as the physical processes employed in the models.”

“More CO2 promotes more plant growth both on land and throughout the surface waters
of the world’s oceans, and this vast assemblage of plant life has the ability to affect
Earth’s climate in several ways, almost all of them tending to counteract the heating
effects of CO2’s thermal radiative forcing.”


“The latest research on paleoclimatology and recent temperatures [finds] new evidence
that the Medieval Warm Period of approximately 1,000 years ago, when there was about
28 percent less CO2 in the atmosphere than there is currently, was both global and
warmer than today’s world.”


“New research finds less melting of ice in the Arctic, Antarctic, and on mountaintops than
previously feared, no sign of acceleration of sea-level rise in recent decades, no trend over
the past 50 years in changes to the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation (MOC),
and no changes in precipitation patterns or river flows that could be attributed to rising
CO2 levels.”


“Amphibians, birds, butterflies, other insects, lizards, mammals, and even worms benefit
from global warming and its myriad ecological effects.”


“Rising temperatures and atmospheric CO2 concentrations, by increasing crop yields, will
play a major role in averting hunger and ecological destruction in the future.”


“The latest research suggests corals and other forms of aquatic life have effective
adaptive responses to climate change enabling them to flourish despite or even because of
climate change.”


“Global warming is more likely to improve rather than harm human health because rising
temperatures lead to a greater reduction in winter deaths than the increase they cause in
summer deaths.”


“Even in worst-case scenarios, mankind will be much better off in the year 2100 than it is today, and therefore able to adapt to whatever challenges climate change presents.”

Hahahaha


Your Heartless Institute again.


So, it has become your Heartless Institute vs the world?

Is that supposed to show you are a fan or that you are very smart

Or that you are lucky to have found Heartless Institute and now want to pollute the world with it?

Why are you so persistent?


And why the mod don't stop you?

Let's get this straight, right and out:

There is nothing honest about this business!

Oh really? Is there anything honest in you?

You should ask yourself, is there any thing honest in you and your agenda?

Seneca the teacher in China is doing darn good job in this place.

Like I said, I have never met a Heartless Institute fan whom I like or who has brains and this San rat is a darn good example.

My appreciation to Seneca for putting in the hard work.

And let's have a glance at author Craig Idso:
Not exactly an awe-inspiring, trust-reinforcing descripti credentialson. Did anyone notice the guy lacks relevant academic creds?

I can almost see the red hot jealousy and envy in your eyes! This scientist, Craig D. Idso, is where he is, only on his own merits! Btw, we have been waiting to see what you have got for a long time. Just show your academic credentials, or forever shut your big foul gap!!!
