IPCC says, “Hey, just because we’re wrong doesn’t mean we’re not right.”

More weird science from the U.N. global warming scientists.

Apparently the new battle cry for global warming activists goes something like “Even if the data’s wrong, the overall theory is right.”

This idea was reinforced in a CNN report that said, “The U.N.’s leading panel on climate change has apologized for misleading data published in a 2007 report that warned Himalayan glaciers could melt by 2035.” Apparently those facts guesses were “poorly substantiated” and “well-established standards of evidence were not applied properly.”

Now in the old fashioned days of real science even a high school science paper required that facts be “substantiated” and “applied properly” or you had to start all over again from scratch. Not so in today’s U.N. mad scientist “we don’t need no stinking facts” world.

The CNN story continued: “Despite the admission, the IPCC reiterated its concern about the dangers melting glaciers present in a region that is home to more than one-sixth of the world’s population.” And then the spin on facts begins. “Speaking at the World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi Wednesday, the IPCC chairman, Rajendra Pachauri admitted errors had been made but said it was not an excuse to question the legitimacy of all global warming science.”

“Theoretically, let’s say we slipped up on one number, I don’t think it takes anything away from the overwhelming scientific evidence of what’s happening with the climate of this earth,” he said, according to Agence France-Presse.”

Apparently the controversy began because “The IPCC statement on Himalayan glaciers, which was based on information from a 2005 report by the World Wildlife Fund, was in turn gleaned from an article that appeared in the popular UK science journal, The New Scientist in June 1999.”

We are guessing that it left out the part were “The New Scientist” heard it from this scientist at a bar, who heard it from a guy he knew at work, who read it somewhere on the Internet.

Let’s just say the IPCC is full of crap. And we don’t mean theoretically.

A few weeks ago on a very leftist blog site, I pointed out that real science is based on gathering data in a verifiable and consistent manner. I was then countered by a guy who said, oh, no, that’s the way it used to be done, today scientists are taught to think in a more non-linear fashion (or something to that effect).

When I then stated that he was either not a scientist or a very poor one, one of his buddies jumped me to state that he was, in fact, a highly published human geneticist. No doubt in an academic setting I thought, because having been a scientist in industry for quiet some time, I can tell you that no company on earth would invest a grand based on the quality of science the Gorebull Warmmongers present.

Looks like the Dan Rather standard of news (“Fake but accurate”) now applies to science. At least, that’s the standard if you can say, “But it’s really really important!”

The left do everything backwards. And if in fact they are now teaching their “scientists” at the university level to strike out into the world doing their scientific research, all the while producing data that they believe to be true, and the factual data be damned, then we are going to have an even smaller amount of innovation in the near short term and in the long term than I thought.
I have always thought that the generations coming up now, who sit around smoking dope, etc, are going to kill the sciences in this country, going to build buildings that crumble(this is already happening in NY), and going to stop medical innovation completely. JustAl you just proved my deepest fear right!
