IPCC report to admit rate of warming OVERSTATED — 0.12 C (actual) vs. 0.13 C (projected)

The Telegraph reports:

A leaked draft of a report by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is understood to concede that the computer predictions for global warming and the effects of carbon emissions have been proved to be inaccurate.

The report, to be published later this month, is a six year assessment which is seen as the gospel of climate science and is cited to justify fuel taxes and subsidies for renewable energy.

The “summary for policymakers” of the report, seen by the Mail on Sunday, states that the world is warming at a rate of 0.12C per decade since 1951, compared to a prediction of 0.13C per decade in their last assessment published in 2007.

  1. That’s odd. I was born in 1951 and I was thinking it felt more like 0.11 than 0.12. Let’s see, factor for natural variability, urban heat island, and constantly adjusted anthropogenic non-observations and you’ve got what? 0.02 per decade from CO2 and falling. Tail v. Dog.

  2. They are admitting to a 100th of a deg C? How magnanimous of them. A tenth of a degree per century, is that really going to counter those 4 -5 degree in a century claims?

    Maybe I am missing or not understanding something. Maybe I should just be happy for what we get.
