IPCC Head Pachauri Acknowledges Global Warming Standstill
So if “natural forcings” can neutralise human caused global warming following an almost exponential and unabated increase in global fossil fuel burning over 60 years since WW2 then there is really no cause for alarm is there?
Pachauri is right here – “He said that it would be 30 to 40 years “at least” before it was possible to say that the long-term upward trend in global temperatures had been broken.” – no cause for alarm. (There is no long term emissions of CO2 – human CO2 emission is essentially a post WWII event – we have only seen a trivial temperature rise since then.)
Pachauri is WRONG here – “This is not to say you won’t have ups and downs – you will – “. The UNIPCC have always claimed that there will not be downs – only ups. They have always claimed that “natural forcings” are to weak and to long term to affect their AGW alarm.
‘Nothing off-limits’ in climate debate

“ …Dr Pachauri said global average temperatures had plateaued at record levels and that the halt did not disprove global warming. “The climate is changing because of natural factors and the impact of human actions,”
Dr Pachauri said. “If you look at temperatures going back 150 years, there are clearly fluctuations which have occurred largely as a result of natural factors: solar activity, volcanic activity and so on. “What is quite perceptible is, in the last 50 years, the trend is upwards.
“This is not to say you won’t have ups and downs – you will – but what we should be concerned about is the trend, and that is being influenced now to a large extent by human actions.”
He said that it would be 30 to 40 years “at least” before it was possible to say that the long-term upward trend in global temperatures had been broken.”
There’s a PR war going on
“Pachauri is chief PR officer for the Global-not-so-Warming-Gravy-Train. His job is to say things with a straight face that are the complete opposite of what he’s said before, and to pretend he has never said anything differently.
The IPCC are a government committee who’ve stamped the brand name “science” to their policy wish list. They got away with it by using ancient tribal rhetorical techniques. Call your opponent names, spit on their reputation, spread nasty rumors, and tell the useful idiots who follow you that they are smart, caring, and superior — even as you teach them to chant “denier” in response to the dog-whistle. The good thing about having Idiot followers is that can believe at the same time that “denier” is a scientific term and that they have a high IQ…. “
