Wonder if Mrs. Sen. Mark Udall will take a pay cut now that the high priests of the Unholy Temple of Global Warming are preparing to admit that they sort of blew it on the rate global warming.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is prepared to confess that it kinda sorta overstated the rate of climate change back in 2007. By about 50 percent.
In a leaked report that the IPCC would just as soon didn’t get out, the high priests will say that Earth’s fever, to use Al “Gimme the dough” Gore’s torpid metaphor, was only half right.
Actually, maybe not even that much, considering that there has been no global warming for nearly two decades, per the British Meteorological Office, which was every bit as eager to admit it as the IPCC is to discuss its measuring prowess.
The new report will say that the actual rate of increase has been 0.12 degrees per year.
Of course, it was the computer’s fault.
Cheap Seats could have told them as much. Garbage in, garbage out, as the saying goes.
The IPCC had said the earth was warming by 0.2 degrees centigrade every decade. Not exactly searing but it was enough to enrich Al Gore and the aforementioned Maggie Fox, who runs the Climate Reality Project. (CRaP.)
Fox, whose $250,000 salary easily outpaces her hubby, Sen. Mark Udall, who holds down a modest $170,000 government job, has been hawking global-warming claptrap for years now.
Seems reasonable to Cheap Seats that if the earth isn’t as hot as she says it is, maybe she ought to take a pay cut.
All things being equal, Cheap Seats would just as soon Fox and Gore folded up their tent and got real work, but this would be a good start.
