None of these are cited by the IPCC because they conflict with the need to obtain a particular result. Pielke is quite straightforward about this - it's bias.
The IPCC's mission statement runs as follows:
The 2007 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Reports have the following stated goals:“A comprehensive and rigourous picture of the global present state of knowledge of climate change”
and“The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has been established by WMO and UNEP to assess scientific, technical and socio-economic information relevant for the understanding of climate change, its potential impacts and options for adaptation and mitigation.”
There then follow tens of links to reports that contradict the IPCC's Reports. And the conclusion?
The IPCC WG1 Chapter 3 Report clearly cherrypicked information on the robustness of the land near-surface air temperature to bolster their advocacy of a particular perspective on the role of humans within the climate system. As a result, policymakers and the public have been given a false (or at best an incomplete) assessment of the multi-decadal global average near-surface air temperature trends.
In other words, we are being lied to for the convenience of politicians.
Now, it may be that self-important, no-nothing tossers like Sunny Hundal may think that we shouldn't question the IPCC "because it gives the false impression that there is still a debate to be had and that it could go either way" but luckily he's just a piss-poor excuse for a journo.
However, when those who have real power, like Batshit, say that "the evidence of cause and effect was unambiguous", then we should be seriously worried. Of course, Batshit did say that he'd give us all an insight into his opinion.
A number of emails after the programme also disputed the facts and I promised to provide links via my blog to the science.
And he did so. Not surprisingly, he linked to all of the reports that apparently support this devious little shit's position. Not one of the papers linked to by Pielke's Climate Science post appear in Batshit's list.
To what extent is Batshit being lied to, and to what extent is the four-eyed fucker lying to us? Well, going on previous form, I believe that he is being extensively lied to and that he is simply too ignorant to understand the science. In fact, I believe that he is too stupid to even understand the difference between theory, data and "facts".
Whatever: he zeal for his brief is going to curtail our freedoms, bugger our economy and cauyse the deaths of thousands in the Developing World.
Batshit Miliband is an ignorant, totalitarian cunt who should have the decency to kill himself now. And Spam Cameron should join him, the massively-foreheaded fuckwit that he is.
