Now there is a surprise

Reuters are reporting a shocking developement in the world of climate change,
EU: Earth warming faster
Global warming is likely to overshoot a 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 F) rise seen by the European Union and many developing nations as a trigger for "dangerous" change, a Reuters poll of scientists showed on Tuesday.

Cripes get out the sandbags at once.

But wait a minute a headline like that is pretty scary, what is behind it? Reuters asked 11 members of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. 9 of whom sugested that their previous work was correct. Well that is a shocker isn't it.

Evidence be hanged it seems. Especially when there is a scary headline to promote.


it's either banned or compulsory said...

As the ludicrous claims of the warmists are rubbished by reality their only recourse is for scarier and scarier predictions in order to get funds and press coverage.

Oh come on. The world is warming. It is a fact. This warming will most likely exceed 2 degrees by the end of this century. Man's role in accelerating this process is also a fact.
You can dispute the potential consequences or the scale of anthropogenic impact if you like but don't insult the intelligence of people who use the web and happen to tumble upon your invective-filled site.
Despite all the funds and press coverage, it is clear that politicians are ignoring the advice of the scientists they are supposedly funding. Clearly, politicians trust car makers' and energy firms' firms advice on the science of climate change more than their own advice. So quit with the stupid tin-foil hat conspiracy theories.
You guys will have your way: the continuation of an economy based on unpredictable oil and gas imports, dirty and polluting coal, and energy wastage.
Well done old jollyon.
