True North Reports has recently ran a series of articles pointing out that actual temperature data does not match the predictions of the global warming activists. The most recent article pointed out that “In the next five years, the global warming paradigm may fall apart if the models prove worthless.” So what are activists to do when their paradigm is on the verge of falling apart? Apparently the answer is to try and hide the truth from the public. That is exactly what they tried to do according to this article from the UK Mail entitled “World’s top climate scientists told to ‘cover up’ the fact that the Earth’s temperature hasn’t risen for the last 15 years.” Here is an excerpt from the article:
Scientists working on the most authoritative study on climate change were urged to cover up the fact that the world’s temperature hasn’t risen for the last 15 years, it is claimed.
A leaked copy of a United Nations report, compiled by hundreds of scientists, shows politicians in Belgium, Germany, Hungary and the United States raised concerns about the final draft.
Published next week, it is expected to address the fact that 1998 was the hottest year on record and world temperatures have not yet exceeded it, which scientists have so far struggled to explain.
The report is the result of six years’ work by UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which is seen as the world authority on the extent of climate change and what is causing it – on which governments including Britain’s base their green policies.
But leaked documents seen by the Associated Press, yesterday revealed deep concerns among politicians about a lack of global warming over the past few years.
For the activists, politics trumps sound science.
