Hand-in-hand with the IPCC theory that we’re dangerously changing the climate go many inaccuracies, distortions and outright lies supporting its stupendously false diagnosis, ruinously expensive remedies and tyrannical administration.
The distortions have wormed their way into thousands of places, both public and private, open and secret, taking our taxes and governing us in ways we’re already forgetting, even if we knew when they began. Will we ever be rid of them?
For to destroy each of the distortions, you need time and patience to find references to, references against and develop a refutation. Then you wait for people to hear about it and agree with you. It’s slow work.
Here’s one of the lies: mankind is ruining a perfectly good climate which never changed before we came along.
There are variations on this according to circumstances, but they all claim we disturb the natural order to various degrees. I’ve just come across an outstanding example of the most extreme version.
Believe it or not, this group of highly-trained scientists claims there used to be only “one climate” and we’re creating a “new” one. But even more than that, this comes from the highest level in climate science, no less than NOAA. These are among the people who write the IPCC reports. Which of course explains everything.
The State of the Climate report published each year by the American Meteorological Society is a comprehensive treatment of the previous year’s weather around the world. If you want detailed information about, for example, the extreme weather in 2010, this is a great source. All in one place and with facts and figures.
New Zealand gets good coverage in contributions from four NIWA climate scientists: Georgina Griffiths, Andrew Lorrey, Brett Mullan and James Renwick. Good on them.
In that announcement they make this astonishing statement about the global warming problem:
People have spent thousands of years building society for one climate and now a new one is being created – one that’s warmer and more extreme.
Oh, so we’re breaking the climate? What was the climate before? Did it fluctuate at all? Did it, for example, ever turn into an ice age? Was there ever an extreme weather event such as a drought, big storm, tornado or flood sweeping over the land and engulfing everything?
To people who don’t know how the climate naturally fluctuates this is a dangerous and disturbing idea. For every change, no matter how innocent, brings fear, where it ought to bring enjoyment and wonder.
Even to those who know something about climate, this is disturbing, for without studying it constantly, you don’t know whether this or that change is within natural limits or to be feared.
Wherever you encounter the idea that mankind is creating change in the climate where no change occurred before, challenge it at once and state clearly that it’s wrong. These scientists should be ashamed to have made this completely unscientific assertion.
I ask the NIWA contributors: have you remonstrated with your NOAA colleagues for presenting such a bald-faced inaccuracy to the public? If not, do you agree with the statement? If so, why?
