IPCC: Ship of Fools

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations network of 2,000 scientists, has issued two reports on the impacts of global warming.[1]

These two reports, crafted by about two dozen individuals, spelled out gloom and doom scenarios that have energized many activists around the World. The trouble is, the IPPC activity is mostly an exercise in politics backed more by conviction than by science.

There have been many objections to the panel's work from the scientific community. Undeterred, the IPCC and their supporters plough on…

The plan…lays out ways of dealing with those impacts.
The draft of the third report [the plan—Ed.] says the world must quickly embrace a basket of technological options _ already available and being developed _ just to keep the temperature rise to 3.6 degrees.

…like a Ship of Fools.
