Sechster Klimareport des IPCC enttäuscht auf ganzer Linie

Genauso kurios ist, dass der Bericht nun beim Extremwetter ziemlich sicher eine menschengemachte Komponente sieht. Das ist schon ziemlich verrückt, denn die meisten Extremwetterarten besitzen in den letzten 150 Jahren gar keinen Trend. Und die Modelle von Friederike Otto und Mitstreitern scheitern regelmäßig bei der Aufgabe, die Extremwetterentwicklung der letzten vorindustriellen Jahrtausende abzubilden. Mit diesen fehlerhaften Modellen wird dann die „Attribution“ also Zuordnung von Mensch vs. Natur vorgenommen. Das ist wie Fahren ohne Führerschein. Der AR6 behandelt das unwahrscheinliche RCP 8.5-Emissionsszenario als wenn es eine plausible Möglichkeit wäre. Ein schwerer Fehler, der Politiker und andere Nichtspezialisten fehlinformiert. Nun wird die Luft dünn für den IPCC, denn mit einer ergebnisoffenen, neutralen Zusammenfassung des Wissensstandes hat der AR6 nichts zu tun. Nur die EINE Seite des wissenschaftlichen Meinungsspektrums ist enthalten. Kritiker durften von vorneherein nicht mitschreiben. Sie konnten als Gutachter ihren Frust abladen und ihre Kritik aufschreiben. Die landete jedoch direkt im Papierkorb. Denn berücksichtigt wurde davon nichts. Die Gutachterpolizei („Review Editors“) sind nämlich vom gleichen politischen Gremium gewählt worden wie die Autoren, dem IPCC Vorstand. Und der wird von den Regierungen gewählt, vor allem den grün-geprägten Umwelministerien der Länder.

The IPCC: Where’s the Science?

(Mar 11, 2014)

The UN’s climate panel claims to be a ’scientific body.‘ But it’s actually in the business of writing reports that rely on thousands of judgment calls. It’s time to stop pretending that fallible human judgment is ’science.‘

3 Things Scientists Need to Know About the IPCC

(01.09.2015)

The bottom line is that this is a week of naked political horse trading that goes on behind closed doors. Journalists are not allowed to witness what takes place, which is why we’ve been looking at official IPCC photos here. This is what they permit us to see.

It’s only after the diplomats have haggled over this Summary – paragraph by paragraph – that the final version gets officially released at a press conference.

The world is then told that science has spoken. But what’s just happened has nothing to do with science. Scientific truth is not determined in the dead of night by UN-level negotiations. On what planet would such an approach make scientific sense?

But the bad news doesn’t stop there. There’s actually a step in the IPCC process in which the original, lengthy report gets amended so that it conforms to the politically-negotiated Summary. I am not making this up.

Cop26 president: UN climate crisis report is a ‘wake-up call for the world’

He urged “all the major emitters to play their part”, adding the G20 group of nations “is going to be absolutely key in terms of our 1.5-degree future”.

Mr Sharma said countries who are attending the international Cop26 climate talks in Glasgow in November “must send a clear market signal to get the transition moving faster”.

„Fit for 55“-Paket: Wie die EU-Klimaziele erreicht werden sollen

(14.07.2021)

Von Jakob Mayr, ARD-Studio Brüssel

Das Podium war voll, und es gab nicht genügend Stehpulte für alle Anwesenden: Gleich fünf EU-Kommissarinnen und -Kommissare erschienen mit Kommissionspräsidentin Ursula von der Leyen und ihrem zuständigen Stellvertreter Frans Timmermans, um das Maßnahmenpaket „Fit for 55“ vorzustellen. Schließlich betreffen die Vorschläge unterschiedliche Bereiche der Lebens- und Wirtschaftsweise von 450 Millionen Menschen in Europa.

‘It Is All Connected’: Extreme Weather in the Age of Climate Change

(today)

The question is, how much did climate change affect this specific storm and the resulting floods?

A complete answer will have to await analyses, almost certain to be undertaken given the magnitude of the disaster, that will seek to learn if climate change made this storm more likely, and if so, by how much.

But for many scientists the trend is clear. “The answer is yes — all major weather these days is being affected by the changes in climate,” said Donald J. Wuebbles, a professor of atmospheric sciences at the University of Illinois.

Carolin Emcke: Verfolgungswahn im Klimaexpress

Dem ganzen grünen Kampf gegen die Realität fehlt nämlich seit Jahren ein wichtiges Element: ein klar identifizierbarer Feind, gegen den man sich wie David gegen Goliath erheben kann. Echte Sympathie fliegt nämlich immer nur dem Underdog, dem David zu. Man muss schon aufpassen, dass man nicht plötzlich als Goliath dasteht.

Sonnenlicht einmal dimmen, bitte

Praktisch so wie bei einem Thermostat: Unter dem Begriff „Geoengineering“ (auch Climate Engineering) werden Eingriffe in die Kreisläufe der Erde vorgenommen – beispielsweise um den Strahlungshaushalt des Planeten zu steuern. Der Weltklimarat definierte 2014 in seinem fünften Sachstandsbericht Geoengineering als „eine breite Gruppe von Methoden und Technologien, die darauf zielen, vorsätzlich das Klimasystem zu ändern, um die Folgen der Klimawandels abzumildern.“

So what’s going on here? How do we explain this outlandish, perverse process?

Well Rajendra Pachauri, who chaired the IPCC for 13 years, said that its “main customer” was something called the UNFCCC. Jean-Pascal van Ypersele is an IPCC official who’s working very hard to become its new chairman. This is slide #26 from a presentation he gave a few years ago: The IPCC, he says, is “eager to continue serving the UNFCCC process.” What does that mean?

The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change is an international treaty. If you’re the UN, and you’re trying to persuade nearly 200 different parties to act together, you need to start from somewhere. You need an established body of facts, a master document, a bible that everyone can use as a jumping-off point. IPCC reports, it turns out, serve that purpose.

In other words, the IPCC’s primary function is to enable a political instrument – a treaty between nation states. This is high octane politics.

Eat less meat: UN climate change report calls for change to human diet

(08.08.2019)

Efforts to curb greenhouse gas-emissions and the impacts of global warming will fall significantly short without drastic changes in global land use, agriculture and human diets, leading researchers warn in a high-level report commissioned by the United Nations.

The special report on climate and land by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) describes plant-based diets as a major opportunity for mitigating and adapting to climate change ― and includes a policy recommendation to reduce meat consumption.

Sonderbericht: Weltklimarat mahnt zur Kehrtwende beim Fleischkonsum

(08.08.2019)

Umgekehrt sind Land- und Forstwirtschaft und andere Formen der Landnutzung für 23 Prozent des menschengemachten Treibhausgas-Ausstoßes verantwortlich. So steht es im neuen Sonderbericht zu Klimawandel und Landsystemen, den der Weltklimarat IPCC am Donnerstag in Genf vorgelegt hat. Ein internationales Team aus 107 Wissenschaftlern hat dafür in dreijähriger Arbeit über 7000 Studien ausgewertet.
