In an apparent about-face from its most recent report in 2007, the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is expected to dramatically scale back previous dire predictions regarding the perceived threat of man-made global warming. The IPCC’s fifth such report, set to be released later this month, will reportedly address incorrect measurements used to calculate temperature change in the previous incarnation.
When the group issued results six years ago showing the earth’s temperature could rise more than 6 degrees Fahrenheit, the mainstream media naturally jumped on board by perpetuating the myth that we are responsible for our own inevitable demise.
Though specific details have not yet emerged, early reports show the IPCC will substantially downgrade its previous prediction, which was based on an inaccurate computer program.
Climate change activists already face their own “inconvenient truth,” as temperatures worldwide have not risen in recent years. Coupled with less-than-devastating predictions by the IPCC, the movement seems destined for gridlock.
Actual science, however, is largely disregarded by the green energy crowd, which will surely pick and choose portions of the upcoming report that support their flawed hypotheses. As more actual research replaces the wild speculation of Al Gore and his ilk, the doomsday shrieks will sound increasingly absurd.
Considering their adherence to a set of provably false tenets, leftists apparently fail to see the irony in calling conservatives climate change “deniers.”
