Watts Up With That? reports that the latest IPCC Report has been leaked in draft form.
There are three figures that leap out at the reader. The first two show forecast warming relative to actual warming for all previous IPCC Reports and the third shows forecast CO2 and actual CO2 emissions.
So it looks like the IPCC have been able to do a good job on CO2 emissions but not so much on temperature. Small wonder the alarmists are now concentrating on CO2 emissions and not actual warming. Notice how the issue gets fudged in this ABC report.
Professor Matt England from the University of New South Wales says the findings send a message to doubters.
“Anybody out there lying that the IPCC projects are overstatements or that the observations haven’t kept pace with the projections is completely off line with this … the analysis is very clear that the IPCC projections are coming true,” he said.
The analysis is very clear that the IPCC projections are coming true.
“We’ve sat back and watched the two decades unfold and warming has progressed at a rate consistent with those projections.”
Recent climate change reports have shown global emissions are increasing by 3 per cent per year, with emissions now sitting at 58 per cent above 1990 levels.
IPCC projections of what? CO2 emissions? Okay – what what has happened to the global temperature? Looks like it has been flat-lining and not growing as predicted.
Update: Aynsley Kellow points out that the third grapgh actually shows atmospheric concentrations of CO2 and not CO2 emissions.
