Scientists Retreat as Global Warming Bill Pushed in Wisconsin

Supporters of Wisconsin global warming legislation are pushing away on their bill to save glaciers and rainforests from catastrophe.

Meanwhile, the “experts” who sounded the alarm about these catastrophes have been forced to admit many of those predictions were based on magazine articles and offhand comments rather than science.

Following the “Climategate” scandal in which scientists appear to have been working together to discredit anyone who disagreed, so many accepted “facts” have been exposed as meritless that a respected international newspaper is calling for the head of the IPCC, the International Panel on Climate Change (the United Nations “Experts”), to step down:

 January 31 London Telegraph: We need facts, not spin, in the climate debate”

“In its zeal to persuade the world of the catastrophic consequences of man-made global warming, the IPCC has lost both its objectivity and the trust of the public. That is one of the main reasons why we, along with our sister newspaper The Daily Telegraph, believe that Rajendra Pachauri, the IPCC’s chairman, should step down.”

 This call comes after two weeks in which:

 –          Claims by the IPCC that 40% of Rainforests are threatened by man-made global warming have been debunked.

January 31 London Times:  UN Panel Shamed by Bogus Rainforest Claim”

 “A STARTLING report by the United Nations climate watchdog that global warming might wipe out 40% of the Amazon rainforest was based on an unsubstantiated claim by green campaigners who had little scientific expertise.”

 –          Claims that glaciers in the Alps are disappearing due to man-made global warming have been debunked.

January 30 London Telegraph:  UN Climate Change Panel Based Claims on Student’s Dissertation and Magazine Article”

 “The revelation will cause fresh embarrassment for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which had to issue a humiliating apology earlier this month over inaccurate statements about global warming.”

 –          Claims that Himalayan glaciers could disappear by 2035 have been debunked.

January 21 Christian Science Monitor:  Himalayan Glaciers Gone by 2035?  IPCC Mistaken”

“Scientists did not challenge the spurious date for years and some now warn that, in fact, our understanding about Himalayan glaciers rests on thin data.”

Our question:  With international action stalled in the face of scandal over the facts and US action unlikely this year, shouldn’t Wisconsin allow the science to be corrected before we act?
