But wait! There's even more! Dr. David Evans, on January 24, 2012, published this report. I call your attention to pages 2 and 3 of this report. AGW predicted by computer models is absent from real world, observed trends in atmospheric temperature change, as shown by the graphs in this report.
The Government Accountability Office (GAO) determined that the US funded almost half the annual budget of the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the world authority on alleged manmade global warming, with $31.1 million since 2001. And what did we get for all that money? The IPCC's Fourth Assessment Report, released in 2007, included several errors. It claimed that the Himalayan glaciers would melt by the year 2035, which the IPCC later admitted was based on inconclusive data. And, according to the GAO, the US has made the world's largest scientific investment in climate change research, with nearly $20 billion over the past 13 years. That's $20 billion of wasted taxpayer dollars that could have been spent training workers, providing make-work jobs, paying off underwater mortgages, given to green energy companies that go bankrupt, and all sorts of other utopian ideas.
The world has both cooled and warmed in cycles, but it has not warmed in the past 15 years. This warming and climate change is well within natural variability and explained very easily by changes in the sun, but there is nothing unusual going on this planet. However, the UN and AlGore (not a typographical error) say we should spend billions of dollars on further research and protocols. And even President Barack Hussein Obama has gotten into the act. Preventing non-existent AGW forms the basis for his "green energy" policies and EPA mandates.
But that's just my opinion..
