If warmists were like normal people, they’d be embarrassed by the series of revelations about their fraudulent science. But, no, nothing seems to embarrass these charlatans.
For example, the most recent IPCC report said, “Close to 80 percent of the world’s energy supply could be met by renewables by mid-century if backed by the right enabling public policies.”
You may be surprised by that rosy prediction, but rest assured that the 80% figure was determined by very precise, highly scientific computer modeling. Well, at least it was very precise and highly scientific by IPCC standards.
National Review reviews the science:
It turns out that to get to that 80 percent number the folks at the IPCC threw out 163 scenarios where their models did not give them the answer they wanted. Only on the 164th try did they finally get an answer they liked. Moreover, the report the IPCC used as the basis for its claim turns out to have been written by Greenpeace activists in conjunction with a lobbying group for renewable energy. No real scientists or engineers were involved. But the story gets even better. For the IPCC model to work, they researchers had to assume the world will be using less energy in 2050 than it is today. By that date there may be 2 billion more people on the planet, all clamoring for their fair share of energy resources. But somehow the IPCC thinks we will be using less energy!
In a similar vein, we went through 164 headlines for this article before we settled on the one above. The first 163 all involved variations of words beginning with the letter F.
