I know I should be deeply concerned. All the in-crowd says I should be scared witless. Not that they read the actual science about the issue. But they do read the articles by the lazy, leftist, reporters who read the inaccurate and sensationalized summaries written by the politicized advocates who read the science and hope nobody else does:
So what this IPCC report is saying is that WE DO NOT KNOW if there's an anthropogenic signal in extreme weather patterns, and that there does not seem to be a trend towards increased extreme weather events such as tornados and tropical storms. Yet the liberal MSM is reporting the opposite. How come?
Well here's the weird part. The misinformation comes from the IPCC's summary of its own report (available here) which has been regurgitated, in classic churnalism style, by all the usual lazy MSM suspects. (H/T Katabasis)
Not that I read the science, mind you. But I do read the articles by people who have read the science--and then compare it to what the professional journalists write.
Funny how the media just paraphrases what they are told and ignores the actual source material. I noticed this in the 2007 Iran national intelligence estimate summary reporting.
It would be nice if the use of falsified summaries led to the global warmers getting knocked back for reaching way too far, as Delingpole hopes. But as long as earnest people take Earth Hour seriously, that day is not yet here.
Next year in a lit up Sydney Opera House, eh?
