The best part about all of this is that in the time since President Trump's election the voices of climate alarm have reached entirely new levels of hysteria. It's just that it seems that they aren't scaring anybody any more.

Intergovernmental Pushers of a CO2 Crisis - the IPCC - in disgrace again over 'profoundly inaccurate' Press Release

You cannot trust the IPCC

How many teachers teach what they teach on climate because their bosses tell them to stick to the curricula?  How many climate curricula creators create what they create because government tells them to?  How many governments insist on what they insist upon on climate because their trusted authorities tell them to?  Authorities such as the IPCC
Evidence mounts but no arrests yet at the IPCC
Donna Laframboise has already exposed severe shortcomings in the IPCC in her book,  The Delinquent Teenager, and now she has published a post highlighting yet more egregious actions which have recently been exposed by Roger Pielke Jr, and an inaction, by that malignant organisation.  Poor teachers. You are at the delivery end of the chain of intellectual corruption that begins in places like the IPCC thanks to a few rogue but influential leaders there.  But let us reserve our greatest pity and compassion for your pupils.

Here is a brief extract from the new post (linked to in the title below):

Disasters and the IPCC 

April 10, 2012 at 3:19 pm

Will a load-of-nonsense IPCC press release be corrected?
A little more than two years ago the UK’s Sunday Times ran a headline that read: UN wrongly linked global warming to natural disasters. (A screenshot may be seen here. The full text of the article is backed up here.)
The very next day, the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issued a press release. It accused the newspaper of running “a misleading and baseless story” which it further characterized as “a baseless attack” on a section of its 2007 report.'

See the above-linked posts by Donna and Roger for the rest of this story.  In a nutshell:

1. The IPCC lied in that press release three times:
           1.1 It claimed that the relevant 2007 report was accurate when it was demonstrably not
           1.2 It claimed that the IPCC's procedures had been followed when they demonstrably had not
           1.3 It claimed that an unpublished paper said essentially the opposite of what it was found to contain when it was eventually published
2.  The IPCC included, in the 2007 version of its relevant materials (but not in the 2006, nor in the 2008) a graph which seems to have been an invention of IPCC activists and which cannot be found anywhere in the relevant scientific literature.

And the inaction?  The IPCC has not yet apologised, nor retracted the seriously misleading statements.  As Pielke says in his post :

'The IPCC 26 January 2010 press release still sits uncorrected on the IPCC website (here in PDF). If the IPCC has a commitment to getting things right, shouldn't it correct "baseless and misleading" claims that it has made?  '

The harm and loss which the scaremongering over CO2 has already brought to the world is still accumulating and may well do so for many years yet while we wait for politicians to catch up with the reality of what is known about the minor role of this trace gas in the climate system.  They may well wish to direct some of their subsequent anger to the shoddy and rule-breaking way in which the IPCC has been run and directed.  Given the very high stakes involved and the degree of trust accorded it by ill-informed governments, that really does border on the criminal.
