Today’s the day of the big AR6, the Committee of Experts report of the IPCC. Everybody knows the IPCC. They have been promising us runaway tipping point global warming since AR1. Only this time they mean it!
Here are the subheadlines to a major news story! (Thanks to Nate Winchester for the tip.) Look at all these exclamation points! That’s how you know it’s serious!
* Secret report warns of rioting and nuclear war
* Britain will be ‘Siberian’ in less than 20 years
* Threat to the world is greater than terrorism
The story opens with a heat blast! “Climate change over the next 20 years could result in a global catastrophe costing millions of lives in wars and natural disasters.”
warns that major European cities will be sunk beneath rising seas as Britain is plunged into a ‘Siberian’ climate…Nuclear conflict, mega-droughts, famine and widespread rioting will erupt across the world.
The document predicts that abrupt climate change could bring the planet to the edge of anarchy as countries develop a nuclear threat to defend and secure dwindling food, water and energy supplies. The threat to global stability vastly eclipses that of terrorism, say the few experts privy to its contents.
Dude! If you think that’s bad, wait until you hear this! “Disruption and conflict will be endemic features of life” and “Once again, warfare would define human life.” Wow!
All that for maybe a globally averaged fraction of degree warmer in a few years than it was at some times, yet still cooler than it was at others?
Well, go ahead and scoff. But this report was written by Experts. And we all know how studied in expertology they are. They have degrees and credentials. Yes, and major awards, too!
Oh, did I mention the report was written in the Year of Our Lord 2003?
And “leaked” to the press in early 2004?
So, Expert readers, let me ask you this. Has Britain turned Siberian?
What’s that you say? Speak up. Us non-Experts have a hard time hearing you.
And have there been mega-droughts? Mega-famines? Nuclear war (which carried its own inherent mega)? Mega-widespread riots?
“Yes! There has!” shouted the Expert.
I don’t mean the mostly peaceful shopping sprees and woke spectacles of 2020 taking place in mask-mandated cities across the USA. Any widespread riots that can be blamed on global cooling a.k.a. global warming a.k.a. climate change?
Say, Experts like “Sir John Houghton, former chief executive of the Meteorological Office”, “group of eminent UK scientists”, another “large body of respected scientists” including Professor John Schellnhuber? Where did you go?
Maybe all the eminences, Experts smarter than all us put together, ran off to read the Science article “U.N. climate panel confronts implausibly hot forecasts of future warming”. This one is from the end of this July.
But as climate scientists face this alarming reality [the same “reality” promised in AR6 as that one promised before], the climate models that help them project the future have grown a little too alarmist. Many of the world’s leading models are now projecting warming rates that most scientists, including the modelmakers themselves, believe are implausibly fast. In advance of the U.N. report, scientists have scrambled to understand what went wrong and how to turn the models, which in other respects are more powerful and trustworthy than their predecessors, into useful guidance for policymakers. “It’s become clear over the last year or so that we can’t avoid this,” says Gavin Schmidt, director of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies
Our old pal Gav!
Now, you know it must rankle old Gav something severe to swallow this error and admit it publicly. The poor guy has lost enough hair already. This is going to drive him right to the wig store.
You’ll notice the too-hot error is the same as the one skeptics have been pointing out since the beginning. Ahem. Only it’s now getting air.
By the time modelers exposed that bias [i.e. a huge problem], the supercomputing runs were already done and the IPCC report was nearing completion.
That report is released today. Rather than wait until the models got good enough to make skillful future forecasts, and then make intelligent guesses about what might happen, they decided to release the report with the known faults and make not-so-intelligent guesses anyway.
Maybe so journalists could make a stink like they did two decades ago. Let’s wait and see.
The article concludes by saying “The modelers hope to do better next time around”.
We hope so, too.

It IS from the Pentagon
and reminiscent of the 1974 Global Cooling Report from the CIA
I remember that nastily cold “Thanksgiving” we had that year (in Minnesota).
The people at UN or the WEF give a sh*t about climate or corona. These are a means to an end: total control of the population. They couldn’t care less about science or even logic at all.
Last deep water port we built, the expertologist design engineers added 1 inch to the level of the quay to accommodate 100 years global warming effect. Did they forget about the hockey stick? Maybe they should have added about 100 feet based upon the 2003 IPCC projections.
Still no Siberian weather here in the UK; but I’m gonna get my ice pick, Eskimo coat, snowshoes and seal spear, just in case.
The Overlords WANT nuclear war. These people hate humanity. At this point, I could care less. Let the stupid, ignorant, selfish, weak useless pieces of garbage that live on this planet die. They won’t get off their backsides and do anything. As far as I am concerned, humans can die out, starving, fighting and dying of heat and cold. THIS IS WHAT PEOPLE WANT. GIVE IT TO THEM. If people wanted a nice life, they would have done something to get it and keep it. THEY DO NOTHING.
In ancient times, a shaman that performed like the media and the “experts” ceased to exist in a hurry. Yet humans have become too stupid to do what needs to be done. Toss a certain “expert” predictor in a volcano as a start. At least demonstrate you have the IQ of caveman.
California is once again experiencing “unprecedented” two year drought, as if there weren’t an “unprecedented” five year drought just a few years ago. (For those not keeping score at home, California is a desert with highly variable seasonal rains.)
There are millions of Californians who are terribly shocked and surprised that summer and autumn (fire season) are followed by winter (mudslide season) and then spring (ah, isn’t it nice?) again, every single year.
@Sheri – At this point, letting Iran nuke most of the Leftist-ridden cities would improve the species. They no longer produce anything of real value, and spew forth toxic ideas and rules with increasing regularity.
Wait! The report was written only 18 years ago. There is time for it all to come true. So panic is still justified.
Well, there’s your problem. A degree in Expertology is not enough.
Silly Briggs! You are failing to account for all the brave mitigation efforts that have saved us from the worst case scenario!
Why do you think they put up all those windmills and solar panels?
Well I didn’t see them producing enough electricity that would encourage any additional unnecessary and dangerous human activity.
Deja vu all over again.
Whoa, lots of death wishes being flung about, here…the disease of our Overlords must be contagious.
We observe their actions and follow their money:
If they really believe that weather events are becoming more extreme, why are they building vast offshore wind farms (I understand that one will be the size of Rhode Island) just a few miles off the storm-prone North Atlantic coast?
Ever seen what a cyclone can do to a wind turbine? How do giant fields of turbines affect bird migration? Are environmental impact statements ever required for these vast wind and solar farms? Over four tons of copper in ONE wind turbine, from where do we get the valuable copper and other precious metals….who cares, but NIMBY?
Will offshore pirates steal precious metal parts from windmills? No worries, taxpayers and utility customers will absorb all losses, while int’l consortiums enjoy all profits, using mostly overseas slave labor.
Furthermore and as some have observed, if they really believe sea levels are rising precipitously, why would they buy multi-million dollar ocean-front mansions on Martha’s Vineyard?
If they really believe the planet is rapidly getting warmer… or cooler… why would they impede the only “climate control” we really have, inexpensive and reliable heating and A/C… by destroying our productive and profitable nuclear, coal, and natural gas energy sectors in exchange for uber-expensive*, bad-for-the-environment*, and unreliable* wind and solar?
We notice that these fools never explain why it’s better for the earth to cool, than to warm (we’ll take the warming)….or during what geological epoch, or even what season, the planet’s temp was in perfect stasis as defined by them (1972?).
Instead, they tell us that our only true “climate control”….the thermostats on our walls….are causing the planet itself to warm….or is it cool….and we must *invest* in $green energy infrastructure, stay home and shiver (or sweat) in the dark, and learn to love frequent brown-outs and black-outs, because we are “saving the planet.”
No wonder they think we are dumb as oxen, deserving only of muzzles, corrals, forced injections, and plow-pulling. We have exceeded all of their expectations and training.
Thanks for the blast from the past

ABS has a friend in the Real Estate Industry named Mick Jagger Gathers No Mosque who assures all those who listen to him that bargain basement prices can be had at any and all oceanside/seaside mansions/homes because science knows that Global Warming will cause the oceans and seas to rise which will flood all of those estates causing them to be entirely drownt.
Real Estate Values follow the science even if’n’you don’t.
The evidence seems abundantly clear.
Damned people are mucking-up the planet.
Of course it’s the planet’s fault. I mean there are tons of planets out there whose conditions are so harsh that life of any kind seems impossible. But not Earth….nooooooooooooo….Earth has to be different. Has to be not just tolerable but actually ‘friendly & enabling’ to life.
And this is the result. Carbon footprints. Noise, Deforestation (and forestastion), earthquakes, famines, drought, flood, too much sun, too little sun. It never stops.
God is out there somewhere undoubtedly saying, “Told you so!” Keep a place warm and damp with narrow temperature ranges and God knows (literally) what begins growing out there.
I know when I get this kind of problem in a corner of the shower, a little Chlorox and some good scrubbing takes care of it lickety-split!
It is now and always has been all about the benjamins. It’s snake oil conmen ripping off the gullible sheeple for their $$$$. The world will not end in fire or ice; it will end in a crap shoot fixed and jimmied by lowlife thieves and scoundrels.
Sheri, you can wail all you want about the stupid humans, but you should not let the baggers fleece you of your stuff. It’s yours; don’t let them take it away from you.
We need a Not Me Buddy movement. I’m not paying for your bogus BS any more. Defund The Science. Defund Hersterics. Y’all can go fund yourselves, and without my money.
Try this on forrrrr size!!! https://electroverse.net/yesterday-during-the-height-of-summer-greenland-gained-enough-mass-to-bury-central-park-under-2200-feet-of-ice/
God bless, C-Marie
Everyone needs to watch out for their shit!
Your faeces might contain covid, and it’s spreading EVERYWHERE through the sewage system!
Everyone needs to lock down again!
Mask your bums!
Also all U.S. troops are now required to be vexxed! OR ELSE!!!
The 3rd booster shots are not working in Israel! How could this be???!!! What can we do???!!!
That old Guardian article is vintage climate porn.
Maybe all the wind and solar farms are helping after all? Let’s check:
Hmmm, not so much. Maybe the globalists should have picked an enabling crisis that was less measurable. Reality keeps messing up their messaging.
