Nature, Not Human Activity, Rules the Climate


24 May 09 - Before facing major surgery, wouldn’t you want a second opinion? You'd be kinda silly if you didn't...

The Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC) was set up to examine the same climate data used by the United Nations-sponsored Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

In his speech at the United Nations’ climate conference on September 24, 2007, Dr. Vaclav Klaus, president of the Czech Republic, said it would most help the debate on climate change if the current monopoly and one-sidedness of the scientific debate over climate change by the IPCC were eliminated. He reiterated his proposal that the UN organize a parallel panel and publish two competing reports. The present report of the NonIPCC does exactly that.

NIPCC focuses on two major issues:

  • The very weak evidence that the causes of the  current warming are anthropogenic.
  • The far more robust evidence that the causes of the current warming
    are natural.

We then addresses a series of less crucial topics:

  • Computer models are unreliable guides to future climate conditions.
  • Sea-level rise is not significantly affected by rise in GH gases.
  • The data on ocean heat content have been misused to suggest
    anthropogenic warming.
  • The role of GH gases in the reported rise in ocean temperature is
    largely unknown.
  • Understanding of the atmospheric carbon dioxide budget is incomplete.
