8 things you need to know about the IPCC 1.5oC report

[WRI: 1/2 a deg makes a big difference:]
<Loading Image...>

Kelly Levin
08 Oct 2018

While all countries committed under the Paris Agreement to limit
global temperature rise to 1.5oC-2oC (2.7-3.6oF), major questions
remained: How can the world achieve this temperature goal? And what
happens if it doesn't?

The world's leading climate scientists, the Intergovtal Panel on
Climate Change (IPCC), answered these questions and more in their
latest report released today. Nearly 100 scientists analyzed how the
world can achieve the 1.5oC goal, as well as impacts associated with
this rise in temperature.

Here are 8 findings:

1. Limiting warming to 1.5oC requires major and immediate transformation
...

2. The scale of the required low-carbon transition is unprecedented
...

3. "Limiting warming to 1.5oC" can mean different things-with
different results.
...

4. A 1.5oC limit to warming is not safe for all...
...

5. ...but risks associated with warming are substantially lower at 1.5oC
than 2oC
...

6. Emissions will need to reach net-zero around mid-century
...

7. All 1.5oC emissions pathways rely upon carbon removal to some extent
...

8. Everyone - countries, cities, the private sector, individuals -
will need to strengthen their action, without delay
...

Without transformation in society and rapid implementation of
ambitious emissions cuts, limiting warming to 1.5oC while achieving
sustainable development will be exceedingly difficult, if not impossible.

Even if countries fulfill their current national climate goals and
make deep emissions cuts after 2030, warming would still very likely
exceed 1.5oC given the challenges associated with dropping emissions
to net-zero in less than 15 years' time. Therefore, all countries and
non-state actors will need to strengthen their contributions without delay.

The COP decision at Paris requested countries to submit a next set of
climate commitments by 2020, so this is an important opportunity to
take bolder action. At the Global Climate Action Summit last month,
leaders from states and regions, cities, businesses and civil society
reinforced that messaging, calling on countries to "step up ambition"
and commit to strengthening their national climate plans during the UN
climate summit this Dec in Katowice, Poland.

Warm Arctic, increased winter sea-ice growth?
In the near-term, Arctic sea ice that has thinned through the summer
could see more growth during winter, a new study suggests. The
researchers use model simulations to show that sea ice that is thin at
the end of the summer will likely gain more thickness during winter
than thicker, more insulated ice. In the longer-term, however, a
rapidly warming Arctic will "overwhelm" this negative feedback, the
researchers say, causing declines in winter sea ice growth.

Climate Bombshell: Audit Exposes IPCC Data As ‘Careless And Amateur’

Published on October 7, 2018

Written by Paul Homewood

The first ever audit of the world’s most important temperature data set has found it to be so riddled with errors that it is effectively useless.

HadCRUT4 is the primary dataset used by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to make its dramatic claims about “man-made global warming”, to justify its demands for trillions of dollars to be spent on “combating climate change” and as the basis for the Paris Climate Accord.

But according to a groundbreaking analysis by Australian researcher John McLean it’s far too sloppy to be taken seriously even by climate scientists, let alone a body as influential as the IPCC or by the governments of the world.

“It’s very careless and amateur,” he says. “About the standard of a first-year university student.”

Among the many errors found by McLean were:

Large gaps where there is no data and where instead averages were calculated from next to no information. For two years, the temperatures over land in the Southern Hemisphere were estimated from just one site in Indonesia.

Almost no quality control, with misspelled country names (‘Venezuala” “Hawaai” “Republic of K” (aka South Korea) and sloppy, obviously inaccurate entries.

Adjustments – “I wouldn’t be surprised to find that more than 50 percent of adjustments were incorrect,” says McLean – which artificially cool earlier temperatures and warm later ones, giving an exaggerated impression of the rate of global warming.

Methodology so inconsistent that measurements didn’t even have a reliable policy on variables like Daylight Saving Time.

Sea measurements, supposedly from ships, but mistakenly logged up to 50 miles inland.
A Caribbean island – St Kitts – where the temperature was recorded at 0 degrees C for a whole month, on two occasions (somewhat implausibly for the tropics)

A town in Romania which in September 1953, allegedly experienced a month where the average temperature dropped to minus 46 degrees C (when the typical average for that month is 10 degrees C).

Yet this is the temperature record from which the IPCC has formed its judgement that the “global warming” since the mid-19th century is sufficiently alarming for governments around the world to have to take urgent action, which is currently costing taxpayers around $2 trillion per annum.

The HadCRUT4 dataset is a joint production of the UK Met Office’s Hadley Centre and the Climatic Research Unit (of Climategate notoriety) at the University of East Anglia.
According to McLean:

“It seems like neither organization properly checked the land or sea temperature data before using it in the HadCRUT4 dataset. If it had been checked then the CRU might have queried the more obvious errors in data supplied by different countries. The Hadley Centre might also have found some of the inconsistencies in the sea surface temperature data, along with errors that it created itself when it copied data from the hand-written logs of some Royal Navy ships.”

McLean’s report could scarcely have come at a more embarrassing time for the IPCC. On Monday, it will release its 2018 Summary for Policy Makers claiming that the global warming crisis is more urgent than ever. But what McLean’s audit strongly suggests is that these claims are based on data that simply cannot be trusted.

Though the IPCC uses three main surface temperature datasets – the others are compiled in the U.S. by NASA and NOAA – the UK-based HadCRUT is its preferred one for historical reasons: the founder of the Hadley Centre (where HadCRUT is partly produced) was Sir John Houghton, who also happened to be co-chairman of the Working Group 1 of IPCC and was editor of its first report.

So the fact that the IPCC’s primary dataset has been shown up as shoddy, unreliable and amateurish is not helpful to the IPCC’s credibility.

As McLean says:

“Governments have had 25 years to check the data on which they’ve been spending billions of dollars. And they haven’t done so once.”

McLean is the Australian IT analyst who broke another scandal about the global warming scare: that it was effectively the creation of just 53 people.

He reached this figure by analysing the IPCC’s 2007 Assessment Report, which, according to the IPCC, represented a “consensus” of the views of “2500 climate scientists”.

But in fact the number of scientists involved in the key Chapter 9 – the one which reached the headline conclusion that human-induced warming was detectable in every continent except Antarctica, and that this was leading to all manner of disasters from melting glaciers and sea ice to changing rainfall patterns and more intense cyclone activity – was just 53.

Furthermore – as Christopher Booker reported in his The Real Global Warming Disaster – these 53 authors mostly belonged to a close professional network, intimately bound with Michael Mann’s “hockey stick”. Not so much a “consensus” then. More – as the subsequent Climategate scandal confirmed – a cabal of vested interests.

McLean’s audit on the failings of HadCRUT is available here from the website Robert Boyle Publishing. It costs US $8 which may provide some recompense for his unpaid work, conducted as an extension of his PhD thesis, supervised at James Cook University by Peter Ridd.

Ridd is the professor who was hounded out of his job after telling the truth about the Great Barrier Reef: that it wasn’t being destroyed by “global warming.” Since this didn’t accord with the narrative being promoted by his alarmist institution he was fired on the pretext that he had “engaged in a pattern of conduct that misrepresents the nature and conduct of the disciplinary process through publi­cations online and in the media”.

Such are the inaccuracies in the data record, McLean believes, that it is impossible to know how much global temperatures have really risen.

But he estimates that of the 0.6 degrees C that the planet has warmed since 1950, perhaps one third has been exaggerated.

So the real figure, he estimates, is a warming of 0.4 degrees C in the last seven decades.

“Most people can’t even notice a change in temperature of 1 degree C for one moment to the next. So the idea that governments are spending so much money on the basis of a rise in temperature a fraction of that spread over almost 70 years is just idiotic beyond belief.”

The Hadley Centre and Met Office will find it difficult to dismiss McLean as a crank. In March 2016, he advised them of certain errors which they promptly corrected. So he’s an authority they take seriously.

yours that is at stake.
As usual the hillbillies point at either imaginary problems or the
equivalent of spelling errors while at the same time being
apparently ignorant to the widely-known actual deficiencies of
whichever data series they happened to zeroed in on this week.
(HadCRUT has poor coverage of polar warming which makes its
evaluation of temp increases an under-estimate, a problem dealt
with by Cowtan & Way & others).

Cartoony himself is at an even lower level than the kooks
he quotes and willingly underlines that in thick blue crayon
anytime he posts.

None of that detracts from the overall pattern shown by the
~6000 pubs reviewed by the IPCC's SR15 let alone individual data series
up to and including the kook-beloved UAH LT v6.

They all show the planet has warmed at better than 1C per cent for the
past 100+ years and this is an unprecedented rate by historical terms
and is related to human-emitted CO2 and other GHG emitted in bulk
since the mid 19th cent.

You poor pathetic Alarmist......

How would you like to begin ? ? I guess we could start with the "..97% concensus..." lie.... but I have something even better...

I've got an idea "Unum" the Liar.... let's start with the fact that lie site DeSmogBlog was co-founded by a convicted money launderer, John Lefebvre.

While James Hoggan, runs the site, the organization got its seed money in 2006 from co-founder John David Lefebvre, who plead guilty the following year to felony money laundering charges. Lefebvre admitted to laundering billions of dollars in illegal gambling proceeds through his company, NETeller – a British online money transfer company that also traded in carbon dioxide emission credits.

(James Hogan is "chair of the Canadian chapter of Al Gore's organization, The Climate Project.." No vested interest there..LOL )

Lefebvre cut a deal with the U.S. Justice Department and was sentenced June 29, 2007 by federal Judge P. Kevin Castel in the U.S. New York Southern District Court to 45 days imprisonment, one year of supervised release, and fined $750,000. On September 23, 2011, Lefebvre was ordered to pay a forfeiture obligation of $40 million. DeSmogBlog’s founding 2006 grant, which Hoggan says was more than $300,000, came from Lefebvre, who was engaged in criminal activity. This is ironic, according to Popular Technology, because DeSmogBlog’s “favorite tactic is to attempt to smear those they disagree with as funded by ‘dirty money.’”

DeSmogBlog has not distanced itself from Lefebvre and his criminal past, but has celebrated it. James Hoggan’s introduction on the website says, “The DeSmogBlog team is especially grateful to our founding benefactor John Lefebvre, a lawyer, internet entrepreneur and past-president of NETeller, a firm that has been providing secure online transactions since 1999.”

Lefebvre, 65, has continued as a climate activist and blogger at the site, and has funded other climate alarmist venues and events since his guilty plea. He also describes himself as “an emerging rock artist. a songwriter, touring performer, and recording artist.”

You're truly a piece of work "Unum" the Liar ! ! ! And so is your favourite blog site.. "DeSmogBlog"

DeSmogBlog is a highly politicized climate alarmist website that attacks skeptics of catastrophic man-caused climate change and the organizations that support them. Co-founded by a convicted money launderer, the site is controlled by the controversial James Hoggan, owner of Hoggan & Associates, a for-profit public relations firm based in Canada. The site’s mission is to shame, silence, and criminally penalize climate realists.

Even Popular Technology describes DeSmogBlog as “a smear site founded by a scientifically unqualified public relations man,” adding:

“Since its creation in 2006 the site has done nothing but post poorly researched propaganda with a clear intent to smear respected scientists, policy analysts or groups who dare oppose an alarmist position on global warming. Their articles frequently reference unreliable sources such as Wikipedia and Sourcewatch since they are unable to find any fact based criticisms of those they attack in respected news sources.”

"Unum" the Liar comrade..... you're becoming more.. .and more.. and more pathetic.... What a Loser.. with a capital "L" ! !

“Of all the climate 'science' scams I've helped expose, about the
worst has got to be Ocean Acidification,” Delingpole wrote at
Breitbart. [11]"

"pril 7, 2013

“The last thing I would want is for Monbiot, Mann, Flannery,
Jones, Hansen and the rest of the Climate rogues’ gallery to be
granted the mercy of quick release. Publicly humiliated? Yes please.
Having all their crappy books remaindered? Definitely. Dragged away
from their taxpayer funded troughs and their cushy sinecures, to be
replaced by people who actually know what they’re talking about? For
sure. But hanging? Hell no. Hanging is far too good for such ineffable
toerags.”

“I note that warmists are often banging on about the fact that
sceptics like Christopher Booker and myself 'only' have arts degrees.
But actually that's our strength, not our weakness. Our intellectual
training qualifies us better than any scientist – social or natural
sciences – for us to understand that this is, au fond, not a
scientific debate but a cultural and rhetorical one,” Delingpole wrote
in an article at The Telegraph. See commentary by ThinkProress here.

8 things you need to know about the IPCC 1.5oC report
[WRI: 1/2 a deg makes a big difference:]
<https://reneweconomy.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/1.5v2.jpg>
Kelly Levin
08 Oct 2018
While all countries committed under the Paris Agreement to limit
global temperature rise to 1.5oC-2oC (2.7-3.6oF), major questions
remained: How can the world achieve this temperature goal? And what
happens if it doesn't?
The world's leading climate scientists, the Intergovtal Panel on
Climate Change (IPCC), answered these questions and more in their
latest report released today. Nearly 100 scientists analyzed how the
world can achieve the 1.5oC goal, as well as impacts associated with
this rise in temperature.
1. Limiting warming to 1.5oC requires major and immediate transformation
...
2. The scale of the required low-carbon transition is unprecedented
...
3. "Limiting warming to 1.5oC" can mean different things-with
different results.
...
4. A 1.5oC limit to warming is not safe for all...
...
5. ...but risks associated with warming are substantially lower at 1.5oC
than 2oC
...
6. Emissions will need to reach net-zero around mid-century
...
7. All 1.5oC emissions pathways rely upon carbon removal to some extent
...
8. Everyone - countries, cities, the private sector, individuals -
will need to strengthen their action, without delay
...
Without transformation in society and rapid implementation of
ambitious emissions cuts, limiting warming to 1.5oC while achieving
sustainable development will be exceedingly difficult, if not impossible.
Even if countries fulfill their current national climate goals and
make deep emissions cuts after 2030, warming would still very likely
exceed 1.5oC given the challenges associated with dropping emissions
to net-zero in less than 15 years' time. Therefore, all countries and
non-state actors will need to strengthen their contributions without delay.
The COP decision at Paris requested countries to submit a next set of
climate commitments by 2020, so this is an important opportunity to
take bolder action. At the Global Climate Action Summit last month,
leaders from states and regions, cities, businesses and civil society
reinforced that messaging, calling on countries to "step up ambition"
and commit to strengthening their national climate plans during the UN
climate summit this Dec in Katowice, Poland.

Warm Arctic, increased winter sea-ice growth?
In the near-term, Arctic sea ice that has thinned through the summer
could see more growth during winter, a new study suggests. The
researchers use model simulations to show that sea ice that is thin at
the end of the summer will likely gain more thickness during winter
than thicker, more insulated ice. In the longer-term, however, a
rapidly warming Arctic will "overwhelm" this negative feedback, the
researchers say, causing declines in winter sea ice growth.

The Guardian, 08 Oct 2018 09:18Z
There is no shortage of political opposition to meaningful climate action
[from US President Donald Trump to Brazil's far-right populist Jair Bolsonaro].
And this morning Australia's prime minister Scott Morrison has put himself
firmly in that category.
Speaking before the IPCC report was released he said there was no money for
"global climate conferences and all that nonsense."

"GIGO" means "Garbage In, Garbage Out."
You here it a lot concerning computer
output -- the results of some program
or model -- and it simply means that if
you enter garbage into your program
(model) you will get garbage out as your
result.

Here. I even Googled it for you:

: George Fuechsel, an early IBM programmer
: and instructor, is generally given credit
: for coining the term. Fuechsel is said to
: have used "garbage in, garbage out" as a
: concise way of reminding his students
: that a computer just processes what it
: is given.

https://searchsoftwarequality.techtarget.com/definition/garbage-in-garbage-out

This is an *Extremely* important (not to mention
relevant) term in any discussion on "Global
Warming" as all predictions resulting from AGW
modeling are a prime example of "Garbage Out,"
as all of it has been falsified...

Get it? The track record for AGW "Predictions"
and even "Findings" (things which are supposed to
be true right now)is appalling bad, well below
the accuracy of a coin flip.

...for crying out loud, these morons look at
a BELOW NORMAL period for hurricanes and scream
over an "Increase" in number & intensity...

GIGO: Garbage In, Garbage Out. The ipcc report
is the "Garbage Out," exactly like all the other
AGW reports.

8 things you need to know about the IPCC 1.5oC report
1. It was a waste of time.
2. It was pre-bunked by data with poor QC.
3. It was a make-work effort
4. It is supposed to be grant-fodder
5. It is self-serving
6. It says "It's worse than we thought"
7. It wasn't produced by Rajendra Pachauri
8. It is a reason to defund the IPCC
