Climate change study had 'significant error:' experts

A recent study supported by the Universal Ecological Fund and predicting a 2.4C rise in temps by 2020 using the IPCC report as a basis was fundamentally flawed.

A climate change study that projected a 2.4 degree Celsius increase in temperature and massive worldwide food shortages in the next decade was seriously flawed, scientists said Wednesday.

The study was posted on the website of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and was written about by numerous international news agencies, including AFP.

But AAAS later retracted the study as experts cited numerous errors in its approach.

(not insignificant is the title of the sponsoring organization: the "FUND." Funded in significant part by US, no doubt!)

Of course, this study will be paraded in the MSM and on ATS as "proof" we are headed for environmental cataclysm.

And who might be the "scientific advisor" for such a study? None other than one of the lead authors of the proven-fraudulent IPCC "findings" that fuels this new religion: Osvaldo Canziani!

Even though the AAAS has retracted the study, its sponsors say they will stand by it and use it to further the propaganda and sacraments of the faithful:

The public relations firm that issued the report on the UEF's behalf said the group stands by the study and would issue a statement to that effect.

Get ready for more claims as "funds" line up for their share of the $100,000,000,000 to which Obama promised to contribute in Cancun, as the redistribution of wealth begins in earnest.

The study's authors also claimed the changes would BOOST cropland harvests is the US and China; a not-so-bad possible side-effect of overall warming.

Unfortunately, the authors were using the IPCC 2007 figures, estimates and made-up projections:

The forecast is based on UN figures about climate change released in 2007, and projects the impact of temperature changes that will leave the planet at least 2.4 degrees Celsius (4.3 Fahrenheit) warmer by 2020.

While there are more recent analyses that make slight allowances for how the Earth may adjust itself, researchers used the 2007 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fourth Assessment Report, combined with "the business-as-usual path the world is currently following," said lead author Liliana Hisas.

Climate change could boost crops in US, China

Since it's a bogus study, I guess we'll just have to depend on American farmers' improving methods and efficiency to continue feeding the world. Unless Monsanto and the IPCC decide they're too rich, too.

No doubt the wealth re-distribution regime will kill off most small farmers in addition to American industry.

About time some more news got released about this fraud, theres plenty of information and data out there against anthropogenic climate change, we just need the official news for people to believe because it seems some people believe anything they are told.

The sad part is that people, including "scientists," take a political document and treat it as if it was a scientific report or treatise. It is not a journal, it is a statement.

Too many times, AGW faithful use this agenda for wealth redistribution as if it was a peer-reviewed article. It is not and never was and never will be; with all of the proven flaws, inaccuracies, assumptions and made-up "facts," the 2007 IPCC report cannot form the basis of scientific analysis.

Any use for other than political hype and fearmongering is unwarranted and unjustified.
