After the release of the new IPCC study, the news is full of story after story about Climate Change! I’ve got half a dozen in different tabs that I’ve been trying to connect together for a post. Then I found this, Climate Change’s Carnival Atmosphere, which does a pretty good job of summing things up.
This is the best bit:
First, the UN isn’t releasing its full report this week – just the curiously edited “Summary for Policy Makers.” The detailed report on the science won’t be issued until May or so because it’s not finished.
If you’re wondering how the UN can issue a summary of a report that’s not even finished, fear not. The UN has announced that changes to the full report shall be made “to ensure consistency with the Summary for Policy Makers.”
Basically, this admits that the results come first, and the research is rigged later to match. Not a bad scam, but hardly worth the $5,000,000,000 the US is spending a year on this junk. So, in the coming years, as your utility bill gets larger, your light bulbs become poisonous, you can’t fit comfortably into your over priced “green” car, and your local, state, and Federal taxes shoot through the roof, it’s all for a good cause. Climate Scientists need the money.
