The Stake in Count Warmula's Heart

Timothy Birdnow

The IPCC, of all groups, is dismissing any link between extreme weather and Global Warming!

From the article:

"There is medium evidence and high agreement that long-term trends in normalized losses have not been attributed to natural or anthropogenic climate change," writes the IPCC in its new Special Report on Extremes (SREX) published today.

"The statement about the absence of trends in impacts attributable to natural or anthropogenic climate change holds for tropical and extratropical storms and tornados," the authors conclude, adding for good measure that "absence of an attributable climate change signal in losses also holds for flood losses".

Roger Pielke Jr, a professor at the Center for Science and Technology Policy Research at the University of Colorado Boulder, and a blogger who aligns himself with the "debate is over" camp, welcomed the IPCC report.

"Anytime that you read claims that invoke disasters loss trends as an indication of human-caused climate changeā€¦ you can simply call 'bullshit' and point to the IPCC SREX report," said Prof Pielke. He adds: "Kudos to the IPCC - they have gotten the issue just about right, where 'right' means that the report accurately reflects the academic literature on this topic."

End excerpt.

I predicted this sort of thing; the official organs of AGW alarmism would have to start walking this stuff back to maintain any credibility in the eyes of the public. Theory has failed, and quite miserably, to fit with the reality on the ground, so to speak, and the men involved are scientists whose reputations are tied to their "objectivity" so they cannot continue to promote this farce and expect to be thought of as anything but medicine show barkers. They have to start retracting their earlier hysterical pronouncements.

It's a sign that we have won this fight. But it's not over; something new comes along, a worldwide rise in temperatures, and it will, like Dracula in a B horror movie, rise from the grave. We've got to stay on top of this.
