The History of the Global Warming Scare

By | October 2, 2010

The IPCC was formed in 1988 with the purpose of assessing “the scientific, technical and socioeconomic information relevant for the understanding of the risk of human-induced climate change.”  — i.e. its main goal is based on the assumption of “human-induced climate change” – there was never an attempt to evaluate the scientific evidence of the cause.

We have had some extreme conditions the last few years – of cold, heat, snow and rain. Detailed summaries on the cold last winter can be found here and on the hot summer here.
