Lord Monckton responds to IPCC Report

Lord Monckton's response is here (pdf)

FIGURES in the final draft of the UN’s fourth five-year report on climate change show that the previous report, in 2001, had overestimated the human influence on the climate since the Industrial Revolution by at least one-third.

UN scientists faced several problems their computer models had not predicted. Globally, temperature is not rising at all, and sea level is not rising anything like as fast as had been forecast. Concentrations of methane in the air are actually falling.

Sources at the center of the drafting say that, though the now-traditional efforts are being made to sound alarmist and scientific at the same time, key projections are being quietly cut.

Computer models heavily relied on by the UN did not predict the considerable cooling of the oceans that has occurred since 2003 – a cooling which demonstrates that neither the frequency nor the intensity of the hurricanes in the year of Katrina was attributable to “global warming”.

The UN’s models also failed to predict the halt to the rise in methane concentrations in the air that began in 2001. And they did not predict the timing or size of the El Nino which hiked temperature in 1998.

So I read the IPCC report... and it said nothing like this. Can you post a link to the report your reading? Also maybe some peer reviewed journals that don't think climate change is happening or caused by anthropogenic emissions. Most every journal I read accepts these things as fact.

Toni, if you read the above article, you will see the link to the report.

Lord Monckton's latest report was peer reviewed prior to being published by the APS. See here http://adognamedkyoto.blogspot.com/2008/07/proved-there-is-no-climate-crisis.html

I can't believe that scientific still talking about this theme as something new, they must realize the true, the climate change is a reality, and not a fool conspiracy theory as some people say.
