... yes and no - as far as "green" alarmists go.
The "ecological" fear-mongers concoct unreal storms. However, thanks to great media impact and political clout, their propaganda is as dangerously effective as real storms - in fact, a whole lot more dangerous.
But first, get this from the Coyote, in a post entitled Science That Is Run Like a Soviet Election:
Robert Orr, UN under secretary general for planning, said the next Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report on global warming will be much worse than the last one.
Hmm, that kind of confirms what critics have been saying for years, that the IPCC has nothing to do with science. Because, you see, to my knowledge the scientists of the next IPCC have not even started their work, but the UN leadership has already determined what the report will say. Which is consistent with their process in the last go around, where the UN political guys crafted the management summary first, and then circulated it to the scientific teams with instructions to adjust their sections of the report to fit the pre-existing conclusion.
At the same time, Professor Richard Lindzen of the MIT, summarises in his Congressional Testimony, a few days ago:
You now have some idea of why I think that there won’t be much warming due to CO2, and without significant global warming, it is impossible to tie catastrophes to such warming. Even with significant warming it would have been extremely difficult to make this connection.
