That’s the U.N. report on climate change.
And, since it probably wasn’t in your morning paper, Joe Bast of the Heartland Institute summarizes as follows:
- There has been no warming for at least 15 years.
- The Medieval Warm Period had temperatures higher than temperatures at the end of the 20th century.
- The Antarctic sea ice is growing rather than contracting.
- The computer models [the ones that generated alarmist predictions] are failing; specifically, they fail to predict precipitation, changes in cloud cover, aerosols, and land sinks.
- The report explicitly rejects the scenario in which the oceanic conveyor belt collapses.
- It rejects the scenario of Greenland ice melting causing large increases in sea level.
- It lowers their confidence in predictions of increased intensity and or duration of drought and of increases in intense tropical cyclone activity.
