The Times of London Keeps the Heat on the IPCC

It is getting hard to keep up with the stories on revelations of the global warming fraud and deception. It appears that the Times of London is not going to let go of the ankle of the IPCC until more answers are forthcoming. Good for them; to see these issues migrate from blogs to the mainstream media is heartening. It means that the end is near for the scammers. Today's story, entitled "UN Wrongly Linked Global Warming to Natural Disasters," begins as follows:

"The United Nations climate science panel faces new controversy for wrongly linking global warming to an increase in the number and severity of natural disasters such as hurricanes and floods.

It based the claims on an unpublished report that had not been subjected to routine scientific scrutiny — and ignored warnings from scientific advisers that the evidence supporting the link too weak. The report's own authors later withdrew the claim because they felt the evidence was not strong enough.

The claim by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), that global warming is already affecting the severity and frequency of global disasters, has since become embedded in political and public debate. It was central to discussions at last month's Copenhagen climate summit, including a demand by developing countries for compensation of $100 billion (£62 billion) from the rich nations blamed for creating the most emissions."

The meme is the same - the sloppy and irresponsible claims of the IPCC - but the Times has now upped the ante by asserting that the fraudulent science threatens the viability of the whole global warming agenda of transferring wealth from the West to Third World governments. Now they are striking at the heart of the whole AGW agenda and exposing the real seriousness of all the charges about mistakes in this report and over-reaching claims by that spokesman etc. They are raising the possibility that the foundations of the whole global warming alarmist position may be crumbling.
