All Scientists are Sceptics ~Professor Bob Carter

Whenever someone asserts that a scientific question is “settled,” they tell me immediately that they don’t understand the first thing about science. Science is never settled. Dr David Deming

Perhaps the most frustrating aspect of the science of climate change is the lack of any real substance in attempts to justify the hypothesis ~Professor Stewart Franks

Game Over! IPCC quietly concedes defeat.

The Lord Monckton Foundation has circulated a new paper (link pdf) by Christopher Monckton of Brenchley which begins:
You couldn’t make it up. A Russian “Antarctic research vessel” carrying not diligent scientific researchers but 74 taxpayer-funded climate extremists on a junket to help them make up headlines about sea ice melting because of “global warming” finds itself stuck in – er – sea ice. And sea ice in high summer at that. The extremists, as so often happens, had believed their own propaganda. They had believed Al Gore. They had believed, poor saps, that Antarctica was warming and melting. It isn’t.
An interesting sideline, this Icecapade has merited derision and condemnation from around the world. For instance, from France for example:
Under these conditions, and based on the synopsis of the expedition, as well as the accounts of a more than festive ambiance on board, one is entitled to wonder about the real scientific character of this adventure.”
“An obvious amateurism…obstinacy and naivety”

Christopher continues:
Aside from the Antarctic Peninsula (just 2% of the continent), which has an anomalous climate, Antarctica has been cooling since satellite records began, and sea-ice extent there has been growing. Even at midsummer, Komrade Kaptain. 

 Christopher carries on:
Taking the Arctic and the Antarctic together, neither the magnitude nor the trend in global sea ice has changed all that much in a third of a century.  

So what is going on?
Unnoticed, the IPCC has slashed its global-warming predictions, implicitly rejecting the models on which it once so heavily and imprudently relied. In the second draft of the Fifth Assessment Report it had broadly agreed with the models that the world will warm by 0.4 to 1.0 C° from 2016-2035 against 1986-2005. But in the final draft it quietly cut the 30-year projection to 0.3- 0.7 C°, saying the warming is more likely to be at the lower end of the range [equivalent to about 0.4 C° over 30 years]. If that rate continued till 2100, global warming this century could be as little as 1.3 C°. 
Lord Monckton reveals how the IPCC has been quietly juggling figures.
