“The data doesn’t matter. We’re not basing our recommendations
on the data. We’re basing them on the climate models.”
– Prof. Chris Folland,
Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research
“The models are convenient fictions
that provide something very useful.”
– Dr David Frame,
climate modeler, Oxford University
“We’ve got to ride this global warming issue.
Even if the theory of global warming is wrong,
we will be doing the right thing in terms of
economic and environmental policy.”

97.4% of climate predictions made in 1990’s overestimated the amount of warming
Labor, like their ecotard junior partners – the Greens, only support the AGW nonsense as cover to support their crooked ideology to extend the powers of government; to raise taxes; to weaken the capitalist system; to curtail personal freedom; to redistribute income and to bring ever-closer the advent of an eco-fascist New World Order.

Can you rely on the weather forecast? Maybe not, at least when it comes to global warming predictions over short time periods.
That’s the upshot of a new study in the journal Nature Climate Change that compared 117 climate predictions made in the 1990’s to the actual amount of warming. Out of 117 predictions, the study’s author told FoxNews.com, three were roughly accurate and 114 overestimated the amount of warming. On average, the predictions forecasted two times more global warming than actually occurred.
Some scientists say the study shows that climate modelers need to go back to the drawing board.
“The Earth system is just too complex to be represented in current climate models. I don’t think they’ll get it right for a long time” said climate scientist John Christy, a professor at the University of Alabama in Huntsville.

…the leaked report makes the extraordinary concession that the world has been warming at only just over half the rate claimed by the IPCC in its last assessment, published in 2007.
Back then, it said that the planet was warming at a rate of 0.2C every decade – a figure it claimed was in line with the forecasts made by computer climate models.
But the new report says the true figure since 1951 has been only 0.12C per decade – a rate far below even the lowest computer prediction.
Anyone who has been following this blog knows I have been saying since day one that AGW is nothing but a concocted imaginary scare, designed by the political elite who are in bed with crony capitalists as a means to essentially steal your money.
