'Sort of like hush money--pay off the IPCC chairs and they'll leave you alone?' -- 'Field's snout in the trough seems identical to any number of 'climate scientists' (Field's scientific background is Biological Sciences. His PhD research was on Leaf Aging in a California Shrub) sucking off the National Academy of Sciences, NASA, NOAA, and other government teats.'
UN IPCC's Christopher Field Defends funding for IPCC as 'providing the world's governments with the best available information on climate science' -- The IPCC 'is a very good deal for the governments and for the world'
Field stands by 'Hockey Stick': 'Climate change caused by humans is already affecting our lives and livelihoods — with extreme storms, unusual floods and droughts, intense heat waves, rising seas and many changes in biological systems' -- 'Global climate warming, as evident these last few decades, is unprecedented for the past 1000 years — and this change is due to human activities'
Climate TRACE utilizes satellite data, machine learning and artificial intelligence to determine greenhouse gas emissions globally. It aims usher in an era of "radical transparency" and a more enforceable climate agreement by giving nonprofits, governments and the UN actionable intelligence to track and crack down on polluters.
East Antarctica, which covers two thirds of the South Pole, has cooled a whopping 2.8°C over the past 4 decades; West Antarctica approximately 1.6″C. ..only tiny Antarctic Peninsula saw statistically insignificant warming.
Last week, media outlets across the globe claimed that there has been rain for the first time at the Greenland summit. “Rain fell at the normally snowy summit of Greenland for the first time on record,” read CNN’s headlines. Others went a step further and declared it a sign of climate doomsday. “Rain On Greenland Ice Sheet, Possibly A First, Signals Climate Change Risk,” read another headline. Unfortunately, for the mainstream media, climate history nearly always comes back to haunt their claims of unprecedented events. Records reveal that this is not the first rainfall in Greenland, and certainly not the first on the Greenland summit peak, which stands at around 10,000 feet.
