Science must have accurate and adequate data; without it, results are meaningless. Inadequate data seriously limits climate research, but scientists and governments who manipulate it for political goals make it impossible. This occurs because most government weather and climate agencies work to create and confirm the results of the IPCC.
A tongue-in-cheek comment in my university was that if we could just get rid of the students, it would be a great place to work. Clearly, some environmentalists think if we could just get rid of all the people on the planet it would be a great place to live.
Climate change research of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is woefully inadequate because of all the factors and mechanisms they ignore.
“All this was inspired by the principle – which is quite true in itself – that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily…” ~Adolf Hitler
Politicians battled over social issues and allowed the economy to spiral out of control while a series of events were pushing food prices higher and higher. It affects everyone, but hurts middle- and lower-income the most. Historically, it’s the issue that brought governments to their knees.
In his keynote speech, Vaclav Klaus, elected President of the Czech Republic in 2003, commented at the first Heartland Conference on Climate Change in New York that the Czech Republic had just emerged from 70 years of communism and asked, incredulously, why anyone would go back. He was referring to the US and Europe, and identified environmentalism and climate change as the vehicles for the transit.
The surface of the Earth is similar as the interface between the atmosphere and the underlying surfaces. Accurate measurement and understanding of processes are critical to what is happening in the atmosphere, underground and in the oceans. Unless we understand the dynamics across the interface, we will not know what is going on above and below the surface. Surface stations aren't measuring what is necessary for understanding changes in weather and climate. But none of this is important to the IPCC, who only wants the results to support the political conclusion.
Vladimir Köppen (with Rudolf Geiger) and Charles Thornwaite each developed incredibly useful climate classification systems. These systems, which are rooted in measurements of precipitation effectiveness and vegetation, are still widely used today and contradict "official" IPCC climate science, which perverts science to support a political agenda.
The IPCC is studying 250 (0.000027%) of the 900 million years of estimated temperature change and ignoring major climate change mechanisms and considerations, including our solar system's orbit in the Milky Way galaxy. Why?
There are two sides to every story; the Chinese express it as Yin (black) and Yang (white). Many react with cultural bias by assuming white is good and black is bad. The idea of balance is possibly one of the greatest victims of political correctness. It has distorted climate science, because they only considered one side and refused to follow the scientific method.
