Latest Global Warming Hype

Another "study" alleging the connection between humans, carbon emissions, and global warming:
A long-awaited report by an international scientific team will provide the strongest evidence to date that humans are changing the planet's climate by pumping heat-trapping gases into the air, according to Boulder scientists involved in the study.

On Feb. 2 in Paris, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change will summarize the key findings from its latest assessment of global climate change.

The report will discuss observed changes - retreating mountain glaciers, melting polar ice sheets, rising sea levels, and shrinking summertime arctic sea ice, for example - as well as projections for the future.

The projections are based on 23 computer climate models operated by 16 research groups worldwide.

All 23 models agree that the planet will continue to warm as levels of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping "greenhouse" gases rise in the coming decades, said William Collins of the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder.

"This report will provide the most compelling evidence to date that climate is changing and that mankind is responsible for that change," said Collins, a lead author of the report's climate projections chapter.
Now the "climate change" and "global warming" advocates will have more ammunition for stifling scientific debate.

If this report meets the criteria for real science then why is "a lead author" out doing publicity work before its release? Science stands on its own feet. It stands up to criticism because it is a search for truth.

Opinion, however, isn't a search for truth and requires heavy publicity, support in the media and witch-hunts to banish the heretics.
