Quadrant Online - The '95% certainty' is that the IPCC can't be trusted
A leaked draft from the IPCC report, due for release in September, demonstrates yet again that the organisation makes a travesty of science and should be disbanded. The report claims that scientists are "95% sure" humans are to blame for climate change, and it blames the past 15 years' absence of warming on three factors: volcanic ash, less heat from the sun, and more heat being absorbed by oceans.
The statement is such a conglomeration of fraud, denial and lack of logic that the quest for a grain of truth is daunting exercise made more so by the way in which the reports are written, edited, re-written and then, at the very end, apt to be recast all over again in the interests of politics and political expedience.
...Consider that claim of "95% certainty", which is no more than an opinion expressed by a few IPCC authors and approved by a few others. It has no basis in mathematics or statistics and might just as well have been have been plucked from thin air, which may indeed have been the case.
