UK Telegraph: ‘How did the IPCC’s alarmism take everyone in for so long?’ – Future generations ‘will be amazed by the almost religious reverence accorded to that strange body, the UN IPCC, which by then will be recognised as having never really been a scientific body at all, but a political pressure group’

This latest report has aroused markedly less excitement than did its hysterical predecessor in 2007. They have cried wolf once too often…

When future generations come to look back on the alarm over global warming that seized the world towards the end of the 20th century, much will puzzle them as to how such a scare could have arisen. They will wonder why there was such a panic over a 0.4 per cent rise in global temperatures between 1975 and 1998, when similar rises between 1860 and 1880 and 1910 and 1940 had given no cause for concern. They will see these modest rises as just part of a general warming that began at the start of the 19th century, as the world emerged from the Little Ice Age, when the Earth had grown cooler for 400 years.
