Game Over?

Surprising admission by U.N. climate chief
"With contrary evidence increasingly prompting many scientists to distance themselves from alarmist predictions, the United Nations climate panel’s latest report warning that climate change will lead to war, famine and extreme weather that could result in the extinction of human beings shows the periodic reports are more about politics than science, charges a watchdog."

"Marc Morano, editor of ClimateDepot.com, noted that the panel’s chairman, Rajendra K. Pachauri, admitted in an interview last September with the London Guardian that the purpose of the periodic U.N. climate report was to make the case that “action is needed on climate change.”

“Top United Nations officials apparently knew years in advance exactly what this new U.N. climate report was going to say,” Morano said. “The U.N. IPCC is guilty of nothing short of making the science fit their political agenda.”

At a press conference in Yokohama, Japan, March 25, Pachauri released the U.N. panel’s fifth climate assessment, which concludes a continued rise in carbon dioxide levels in the earth’s atmosphere threatens the fundamental systems that support human civilization, to the extent “no one will be untouched.”

"Morano pointed out that U.N. officials were predicting as far back as 2009 that their next climate warning would return to being alarmist, in the spirit of Al Gore’s 2006 documentary “An Inconvenient Truth.”

The report would come, Morano said, without an acknowledgement that warnings of “global warming” have given way to “climate change” as the scientific data has shown that the average global temperature has not risen for more than 15 years.

In a 2009 interview with the Bahai News Service in 2009, Pachauri that when “the IPCC’s fifth assessment comes out in 2013 or 2014, there will be a major revival of interest in action that has to be taken.”

“People are going to say, ‘My God, we are going to have to take action much faster than we had planned,’” he said.

Morano asked how Pachauri and other U.N. officials in 2009 or 2010 could possibly know what a “science” report in 2014 would say.

His answer was direct.

“The U.N. IPCC is a political body masquerading as a ‘science’ body,’” he charged. “The U.N.’s ‘science’ conclusions are agreed to line by line for its Summary for Policy Makers with politicians, U.N. officials and delegates.”"
As I look out my window and see there is still a lot of snow on the ground, I was so hoping they were correct. /sarc
