Time to Dump the IPCC

When any public organisation is exposed as being incompetent and deceptive, thereby destroying any semblance of credibility, it needs to be disbanded.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is one such body.

The so-called authoritative voice for climate change, used by the global warming alarmists to justify their hysterical claims, has been caught relying on flawed documents, dodgy data and fanciful science to try and change the world.

Many of us have suspected for some time that the IPCC was pursuing a political agenda rather than being a dispassionate provider of information. However, few suspected the astonishing scale of the campaign by members of the IPCC to further the alarmist cause.

Clearly, these are people who don’t allow the facts to get in the way of their opinion.

Alarmists have claimed that the IPCC reports were the conclusion of over 2500 climate scientists. The fact that only a handful of scientists contributed to the climate change section was conveniently overlooked.

Climate realists have had the words ‘peer-reviewed’ thrust in their face by the alarmists and used to stifle debate or to denigrate dissenters. Now it turns out that ‘peer-reviewed’ and ‘factual’ can apply to nonsense taken from virtually any source that agrees with the IPCC agenda.

Take, for example, the great Himalayan glacier melting hoax. According to the IPCC, these glaciers could disappear by 2035. The alarmists went wild stating it was almost too late to save the world. They ignored the fact that this claim was never made by the scientist it was attributed to, although it was used by the chairman of the IPCC to justify a massive research grant to his own organisation.

What about the rise in natural disasters that would occur due to global warming?

You may recall that this IPCC claim was used by African nations to demand $100 billion in compensation during the Copenhagen climate conference in December last year.

The fact that it was based on an unpublished report that had not been subjected to routine scientific scrutiny didn’t worry the IPCC who knew the link could not be proved – but failed to tell anyone else.

Perhaps they were hoping to further humiliate Kevin Rudd and Penny Wong who clearly failed to investigate the more extreme claims before trying to impose a great green tax on the Australian people.

There are also the ‘climate experts’ who have withheld information, been ‘creative’ in its presentation and tried to shut down any dissent from their apocryphal cries. These are just some of the IPCC contributors whose methods are now subject to parliamentary and potential criminal investigation.

Well, enough is enough. It’s time for the increasingly discredited IPCC to be replaced by a competent, clinical and dispassionate assessment of the facts surrounding climate change rather than the left-wing extreme environmental agenda the IPCC has pushed for the past decade.

At least the truth is coming out before it is too late to save the world from the IPCC and their acolytes.
