Apparently absent in Chris Wallace's show preparation was the fact that the UN IPCC's "95%" claim is nothing more than guesswork and has no statistical basis whatsoever. Even Reuters news service recognized this in a 2013 article. Reuters explained that the UN IPCC’s 95% confidence of human causation of global warming was "based on a discussion among the authors," not a scientifically sound statistic. Lord Christopher Monckton called the 95% claim "no more scientific a process than a show of hands." "The IPCC’s pretense that it is 95% confident that most of the warming since 1950 was man-made is transparently rent-seeking guesswork, to which no intelligent journalist should lend the slightest credence," Monckton wrote in 2013.
To Cut' Climate Money', First GOP Must Find Where Obama Stashed It
'Obama aides spread money across the government to elude cuts'
Goal was to make 'programs hard to disentangle'
Obama 'integrated climate programs into everything the federal government did'
Bloomberg News Features Climate Depot: "The Trump Administration needs to defund the entire apparatus of the climate change federal funding gravy train," said Marc Morano, a former Republican staffer for the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee. "In order to dismantle the climate establishment, agencies and programs throughout the federal government need to be targeted."
"The climate funding has spread to almost every aspect of the federal government with sometimes wacky results," said Morano, who doubts global warming and runs the website climatedepot.com. He cited one example of a Department of Transportation query about the link between climate change and fatal car crashes.
Climate Depots' Marc Morano reacts: "We have now officially expanded the era of 'fake news' to include 'fake weather.' The public expects scientifically accurate and up to the minute forecasts, not calculated politically dubious forecasts that hide the truth."
"The NWS's primary function is to inform the public in situations like this, not make forecasts based on how to best influence public behavior. It is not the "National Psychiatric Service", but the National WEATHER Service. The NWS has taken it upon themselves to decide that the public was unable to hand the truth about the 2017 Blizzard Bust."
Danish statistician Dr. Bjorn Lomborg, the President of the Copenhagen Consensus Center: 'We will spend at least one hundred trillion dollars in order to reduce the temperature by the end of the century by a grand total of three tenths of one degree...the equivalent of postponing warming by less than four years...Again, that is using the UN's own climate prediction model.'
'If the U.S. delivers for the whole century on the President Obama's very ambitious rhetoric, it would postpone global warming by about eight months at the end of the century.'
'But here is the biggest problem: These miniscule benefits do not come free -- quite the contrary. The cost of the UN Paris climate pact is likely to run 1 to 2 trillion dollars every year.'
