Surprise ! Surprise! UN Report says CO2 Will Boost Disasters!

The IPCC/Greenpeace/WWF wackadoodle  group of scientists/bureaucrats/ activist environuts is reviewing a UN report on the global warming scam to check if there are any mistakes  which is like checking Alice in Wonderland for factual errors.

The report's major conclusions:
1. Global temperatures will soar - ignoring the fact that temperatures have not changed in 15 years.
2. Heat waves will increase - ignoring the fact that the world is now in a cooling phase.
3. Increased rain and - this is a new one -increased snowfall . Only the most dedicated climate wackos will believe this is caused by warming.
 Monster sea level increases are not mentioned - that was yesterday's "settled science " and someone must have read the tide meters. It is a pity they did not send someone outside to read the temperature meters as well!


A DRAFT UN report three years in the making finds that man-made climate change has boosted the frequency or intensity of heatwaves, wildfires, floods and cyclones and that such disasters are likely to increase in future.
The draft being discussed by the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change says the severity of the impacts vary, and some regions are more vulnerable.
Agence France-Presse has obtained a copy of the draft report's 20-page summary for policymakers, which is subject to revision by governments before release on November 18.
Hundred of scientists working under the Nobel Peace Prize-winning IPCC will vet the draft at a meeting in Kampala of the 194-nation body this month.
"This is the largest effort that has ever been made to assess how extremes are changing," said Neville Nicholls, a professor at Monash University in Melbourne and a co-ordinating lead author of one of the review's key chapters.
Mindful of an outcry by climate sceptics over flaws in an earlier IPCC text, those working on the document say the level of confidence in the findings depends on the data available.
But the overall picture that emerges is of increased volatility and frequency of dangerous weather, leading to a sharply rising risk for large numbers of people in coming decades.
The nine-chapter special report on managing the risks of extreme events and disasters to advance climate change adaptation, or SREX, is based on hundreds of recent scientific studies.
The report's main conclusions about future trends include:
• It is "virtually certain" - 99-100 per cent - that the frequency and magnitude of daily temperature extremes will increase over the 21st century on a global scale;
• It is "very likely" (90-100 per cent certainty) that the length, frequency and/or intensity of warm spells, including heatwaves, will increase over most land areas;
• Peak temperatures are "likely" (66-100 per cent certainty) to increase - compared with the late 20th century - up to 3C by 2050, and 5C by 2100;
• Heavy rain and snowfall is likely to increase over the next century over many regions, especially in the tropics and at high latitudes;
• Droughts will likely intensify in other areas, notably the Mediterranean region, central Europe, North America, northeastern Brazil and southern Africa.
The draft's publication coincides with a series of natural catastrophes around the world that have boosted the need to determine whether such events are freaks of the weather or part of a long-term shift in climate.
Last year, record temperatures fuelled devastating forest fires across Siberia, while parts of Pakistan and India reeled from unprecedented flooding.
This year, the US has suffered from a record number of billion-dollar disasters ranging from flooding in the Mississippi and Missouri rivers to Hurricane Irene to the Texas drought.
Large swaths of China are suffering from intense drought as well, even as central America and Thailand count their dead from recent intense rains.
Most of these events match the predicted impacts of man-made global warming, which has raised temperatures, increased the amount of water in the atmosphere and warmed ocean surface temperatures - all drivers of extreme weather.
But the role of natural fluctuations in the weather and rising levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has proved extremely difficult for scientists.

  1. 'IPCC' is synonymous with a bunch of pompous self-appointed Climatic High Priests wallowing in government funding. They've thrown true unbiased science out the window and cherry-pick/massage climatic data to maintain a state of panic (and more funding). Anyone with a background in science/engineering and an open mind can see right through their scam.
