A single sentence on page 4 of the Summary for Policymakers puts the IPCC’s conclusions in a different perspective:
'Attribution of observed impacts in the WGII AR5 generally links responses of natural and human systems to observed climate change, regardless of its cause.'
That’s right. Regardless of its cause. Working Group 2 isn’t claiming that these observed impacts are necessarily a result of human activities. They could equally well be the result of natural climate change – the IPCC makes no distinction.
Reality Check: Sen. Inhofe's assertions are correct and backed by evidence. Streisand admitted key climate role and gave at least a quarter of a million dollars to fund the climate activism of a lead author of the UN IPCC.
Scientist to the Hollywood Stars: UN IPCC Lead Author Michael Oppenheimer 'was the holder of the 'Barbra Streisand Chair of Environmental Studies' at Environmental Defense Fund'
Streisand: 'My Foundation started supporting climate change work in 1989, when I donated a quarter of a million dollars to support the work of environmental scientist Dr. Michael Oppenheimer at EDF. Since then, I, and others have spent countless millions on this issue.'
Reality Check: Sen. Inhofe is exactly correct. Streisand is part of global warming activism. Barbra Steisand funded lead author UN IPCC scientist Dr. Michael Oppenheimer while he was at Environmental Defense Fund. Streisand has been a key player in climate change activism.
Dr. Ball: 'UN IPCC was set up to achieve a result. The objective was to show that human CO2 was causing global warming. So they wrote computer models to do that. It was a self-fulfilling prophecy...The idea was to demonize CO2...All of this was orchestrated. Nature is not following along, Nature is not doing what they anticipated.'
